    Somebody mentioned the choppy scrolling on one of my game play streams of this. The answer given is actually pretty easy to understand. For one, all the other versions do the same due to hardware limitations. But it is also required so that when moving objects you are on a direct grid of movement. If there were smooth scrolling apparently it would cause major issues with trying to line up objects etc. where needed.

    One thing that is pretty cool about these versions that have the overhead maps that isn't often talked about, is that you can still play the game in overhead map mode. Makes it a bit quicker to cover larger sections of the map if you don't have anything obstacles to mess with etc.

    I like the soundtrack. Not a ton of tracks but what's there is pretty good.

    Oh my God! I was transported back into the early 1990's when I heard the title screen song. I basically ignored most of what the manual said and went after the robots. The 4th one smoked me. Lol

    Definitely need some more time to play this one.
