|GRAPHICS - 7/10|
|Very similar design on all levels, but change of colours and the huge set of different level designs. That I have to give a huge + for!|
|SOUND - 8/10|
|Not as bad as people say. The main theme is both original and good. The effects are also good, which match the game. The sounds of stones falling down, diamonds crashing and door opens are all good.|
|PLAYABILITY - 10/10|
|Fantastic. I don't remember how many levels there was, but there was not too few.
Maybe too hard sometimes, and frustrating if you can't make it to the next level.
However a game you can (and should) play over and over again, full score here! |
|OVERALL - 10/10|
|One of the greatest games of all time. Very original and challenging game. If we can talk about masterpieces in computer game history, this game is one of them.|
