I really love it. This game is a pure adrenalin rush. And I love those bulky scrolling graphics.
Also great soundtrack by Dave Lowe ( Uncle Art ). He always used the same samples for his soundtracks, but I love his style.

In HD Still can't decide if Brataccas or Top Banana looks worse, but altogether Top Banana gets the '1st place' in my book.

At first, it looks like. But lacks attribute clash and looks more like a Mode 1 CPC game.

But nevertheless ZX or CPC lookalike it's damn ugly!

Not only free of charge and ugly, it was also a poor propaganda campaign for the German Bundeswehr and after all a very bad game!

After these Polish fighting games have been hyped so much in other threads, I can't resist mentioning a few titles here...

You want ugly graphics? Here ya go!

For a game that required 4 graphic programmers, and was released in 1996, this game literally screamed, "zero effort". I've seen better efforts from a secondary-school art class.

Higher resolution and many colors does not make up for bad artwork.
