I've only ever played the Amiga version and I found it fairly underwhelming I must admit. So is the C64 version better?

Reminds me of when me and a mate played it together (must be nearly 20 years ago) and finished it and got the score to either stop at 999999 or went back to 0 (can't remember which now). Took so long we had to pause it and leave the computer on overnight to finish it the next day

I never really played Wizball
I remember trying it but I found the controls very annoying and I quit playing.. I was very harsh on games back then, if I didn't like them immediately or if anything annoyed me in the slightest, I would often quit playing and never bother with it again.

I should play the game one of these games, I've read reviews and looked at screenshots and it looks great.
