It's a pretty good game would have been nice to have original enemies instead of ZZT's built in ones but at least they used the STK toolkit to create pretty good graphics not as good as some I've seen but not really bad either. Would have rated higher but its just a demo and we probably never will see the full game. Also as one of the above reviewers mentioned there is a bug where a guard wants you to pay him 30 rings (gems) but you don't lose any after you pay him

Ignore the comment above. It was posted by my brother, but he used ZZT under Windows instead of the normal ZZT, and for some reason that doesn't work.

The introduction to this game is good: The storyline is explained on the intro screen clearly, and the title screen has good art (albeit being in Japanese). The actual game, however, is lacking.

Firstly, the author used gems to represent rings, which just looks so totally wrong in a Sonic-style game. In addition, most enemies are just built-in ones from ZZT itself, and the only use of objects is to represent other characters. There is also a coding issue in one part, where you do not lose rings despite paying some to one of the characters,

However, the gameplay is very good! Being a demo, the game is short, so it doesn't get annoying, and I have to say that, despite all it's quirks, it's rather entertaining.

But I need to give it a rating, so here I go:

5 points to start. -0.5 for a coding issue. -2 for use of ZZT's built-in enemies and items, with little use of coded objects. +0.5 for how entertaining I find it, and because it is a demo. = 3 points out of 5.

This game appears to be broken. Though it is possible to see the intro screen and the storyline, any attempt to play it causes a DOS Error. Pity, because the game looked very good indeed...
