Same here! :)
Most of them seem to be in Europe but I'd prefer to buy from the UK.

I've never seen this game before.  What kind of game is it?

It's a platform game. It's infuriatingly tricky - the jumping is controlled by pushing the joystick up rather than pushing the button.

A bit like Smurf then, although that game is very easy.

It's actually a very decent (by atari standards) arcade conversion.

Just had a quick go (emulation via xbox) and the controls are reversed from the arcade version - so jumping is via fire button with the kick mapped to joystick up).

Still isn't any easier!  :o
