Game Trivia:

  • This game runs on the David Perry Engine, which allowed sprites with many frames of animation to run efficiently. Other games to use this include Cool Spot and Aladdin (Genesis).
  • There is a hidden air pump in the second tube race level that makes the race considerably easier. The passable rock wall entrance is denoted by lights on the left near the last stretch of the race.
