A slower moving elevator prevents often camping in front of the elevator and avoiding a considerable number of obstacles to capture the 'krook'. Due to a stronger likelihood of running out of time, it forces the player to take up the challenge more often to tackle obstacles in pursuit of the goal. Whether this details is better or worse than the 2600 version is dependent on whether you find more enjoyment camping out waiting for the elevator, avoiding and passing obstacles less, or rather more in-game action and challenge of avoiding and passing the obstacles presented. That's a great summary @Trebor, thankyou. As they say, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". Koppers, like A.R.T.I. is not a like-for-like port, it's more of a remaster or perhaps even better, an adaptation. My interpretation of the game takes features from all of the versions that came out, not just the 2600. I prefer this approach as there are some things in each version that are great and there are some things, that I didn't like, or were there due to limitations of a given platform. I don't plan to change my approach to ports ! . 9 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
