Didn't play through it on the SNES, but it looks quite the same (for level design and the like that is). If you enable the mouse in the emulator of choice it isn't bad to control. I still would prefer the Amiga version (better graphics and sound in my opinion ).

What were the differences? Might be that the SNES version is the same.

What a piece of crap. No the SNES version is like the Amiga version : http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=VKJCmkuq8Dc
Note this guy seems to use the joypad for the controls, which is a pain in the ass

Then you need the SNES mouse for EOB.

Snes9x emulates the mouse and I would think all the other emulators also have this option, so it's not a big deal if you don't play it on the real hardware

Sure, the mouse emulation works fine for EOB.

It's one of the reasons why I disliked Discworld on the PlayStation back then, because I had no mouse Got the budget release for PC some months after I bought for the PlayStation and all was good again
