* TheAlcoholic: The Black Knight. He has a conveyor belt of what are clearly mugs of beer set up next to his throne, and chugging them then flinging the empty mug at you is his only form of attack.

* PortingDisaster - The PC-DOS, the SEGA Genesis/Megadrive, and finally the CD-i ports.
** PC-DOS: Because no graphics cards nor sound cards existed when the Macintosh was around, both had to be heavily downgraded to compensate for being inferior. Plus, and strangely, the controls were changed and the rocks could be aimed using the keypad (in case you had no computer mouse).
*** Sega Genesis: The first video game console to have a port of this game, it was heavily criticised with negativity due to washed out graphics, crazy controls because of not having a mouse to aim with seperately and so on, like Bach's Togue in D Minor being the ONLY song in the whole game.
**** CD-i: The whole level can't be displayed, and the controls are once again mangled. Pressing Up+2 for ducking, having to hold down Button 1 to aim the rocks, and re-done sound effects.
This list shows the last 10 events of 17. Show all.
