You can also grab it on GoG, and not have to boot up Steam to play it.

This game was literally my childhood <3 I spent hours playing and replaying this game because back in the day, you had a certain number of lives for the whole game and if you lost them all, you had to start all the way from the beginning. And this was a pretty long game.

I'm glad it's being released on Steam/GOG but from what I'm reading in the reviews, this is a pretty bad port. And I doubt it's getting fixed anytime soon :(

iirc it’s just a port of the old pc version, which i’ve read was a really bad port of the snes/genesis version.

^ I actually never had any issues running the original PC version but I agree that the SNES/genesis version is the best version of the game. Honestly, it irritates me when game devs rerelease a game as a bad port of a bad port of another bad port with few if any optimizations for the new system. It just screams laziness. :roll:

The PC port is not really "bad". The graphics and audio are identical to the SNES version. I have the GoG version, which is I assume the same as what's on Steam. If that's the case, what you are getting is a prepackaged DOSbox version of the TLK game. As far as the game goes, you really won't notice a difference between it and the SNES. There are some menu items missing which I do enjoy, such as the "audio test" menu, which I liked putting on and leaving the game running via emulator in the background, letting me enjoy the 8-bit renditions of TLK's music. Other than that, you get the same cheats as the SNES, but no emulator controls such as savestates, which for a game like this I would argue are rather important. At least you can cheat and skip levels you already beat in a previous play session...

This is actually an awesome idea. Just listened to it on Youtube and I'm into it. I've got a nostalgic thing for 8-bit music--it's very charming somehow. And I mean, some 8-bit tracks are just timeless...

And there's a cool creative element too. You have a really limited toolbox as a musician, so it forces you to think differently. Usual things might not work, while unusual things may.

GOG version is the Genesis version if I recall.
