One of my favorites

This is one fun game and i still play it today. Holds it's replay value very well. This was the first game that i bought when i just got my drivers license and i was able to drive myself to the store to buy it lol. When i got home with it i stayed up all night playing it.

Everything about this game hooked me. The music is what stood out at first, i still find myself huming it today. The game play was fun and the first level is easy once you get used to it. Then they get progressively harder, the last level took me forever to beat. But wow what a game. I found myself at times screaming and throwing the controller down to the ground but then would come back with a vengeance to beat the level.

This is in my top ten games of all time. My kids, who were not born until 15 years after this game came out, love to play it as well. I really enjoy this style of play compared to the new CGI overload games and movies of today.
