I'm sorry, but that's simply untrue. Anyone can clearly see the difference between 30 and 60 fps.

Looks like the only game Toast Dept ever made. You could say the company was toast after they released this game.

They were both done by Rare, but I very much doubt the same team that created the piece of crap that was Battletoads was also responsible for one of the greatest video games of all time.

The music is a great rendition of the arcade tune, very faithful to the original but also adds a bit of Amiga personality to it.

I also quickly lost interest in the game after the first level.

FFPlayer as suggested above should handle those formats. As also said above, you'll need an extremely powerful "Amiga" with an RTG setup.

I've just had a very quick look at the file. It's crunched so we would need to find something capable of decrunching it before we can do anything.
