Okay game, and not too hard for a "colect everything in a stage to exit" fest, except for the last two scenes of level 7. A pitty there are no bosses, most if not all of the enemies basicly recquire three shots with a weapon/three jumps to kill so there's little strategy involved.
Also never got to see the ending due to a disk 1 error, and the game seems to be one of the more obscure ones, so I haven't found it yet. Also, the loading times between levels were usualy absurdly long.

Just tried that one on the CD32... Oscar can jump. And walk. And thats it? Its hard not to get confused because of the graphic. All in all a pretty stupid game.

Eye-searingly bright graphics, jerky controls, massive slowdown with more than two sprites on the screen, hordes of glitches, cheap deaths, an obnoxious main character - what's not to like?
I despise the "It's actually a bunch of movies!" twist; it's like it was added for the sole purpose of killing suspension of disbelief.

My niece wanted the lookalike game called Trolls. But I couldn't find that one anywhere for sale. I got her this instead and she was happy even though, as someone else mentioned, it runs a little slow at times with all the nice graphic work bogging things down. Very colorful game with nice graphics and a first rate main character. Hard not to like it unless you've played all the others that feel just like it (like Trolls, for instance). I seem to remember some annoying disk swapping...well, that was pretty standard on Amiga, but I think was niece was a little annoyed having to wait.

The graphics are very nice but that easily slows down the A500. This is one of few games we bought. I newer came to the end of it, because it contained a lot of bugs witch forced me to reboot. Every second bonus-stage were totally messed up, and the disk-change screen hung often.

It's trolls but slightly different. I found this one more frustrating than troll because of the mad backgrounds making it difficult to see the baddies.

My first CD32 game (since it was included with the console itself). It's exactly the same engine as for "Trolls", only new levels. The CD32 version featured quite a nice soundtrack from CD, the gameplay is quite OK, too.
I never managed to finish the game, especially because some silly bugs demotivated me to hell: I remeber me visiting World of Commodore 1993 where the CD32 was introduced. There were lots of demonstration machines where you try the game out yourself. I played a while and suddenly fell through a wall and got stuck there - inside the wall. Couple of hours later I came back to Commo's CD32 park and now on most of the machines, Oscar had gotten stuck in this uncomfortable position. Ok, I thought, if they see there's such a bug in this game, Commodore will fix it before it becomes finally released.
After I got my CD32 I soon realised: They f***ing didn't.

Not very enjoyable platform game, although the graphics were pretty nice.
