However impressive the mod, it gets boring very quickly. At least you got sound effects at the same time.

Sorry, I think I just accidentally criticised Battle Squadron there as well.

Also the Bitmap Brothers never seemed to bother with hardware sprites (either that or they always used the same palette for the sprites as for the backgrounds, for some reason) and the frame rates were never that smooth. You can actually see on the Youtube longplay that it must be less than 25fps. Still a good game despite all this.
