I've never tried the this game in its earlier incarnations. I like the music selections.

The first level is nasty in a *nice* way. Every time one thinks that rest of the level is easy-peacy, the game shows you who's the boss, until one has completed it once. :-)

I looked at Speccy gfx in Youtube video and the falling ground is more visible there than in this version. That would make the game a bit easier, but on the other hand we have now emulators and one can use a save file.

sorry to you and steve for the lacking new information, i needed a break from it after i had work on it for a half year,
so i started to upgraded an old ST music program, just to do something else, but it have taken alot more time that i anticipated.
problem is it is in a state where i can't stop working on it. but when i have finish some of the things in it, i will go back and finish MM.
i will keep you update about it :)

merry x-mas and a happy new year to all....
