What is up with that Intellivision version - the music cuts out for the sound effects  :-

The 7800 version would be arcade perfect if it didn't have that horrible sound  >:(

Bad programming for the Intellivision version?  Rumor has it that there may be a homebrew version in early stages.

You're quite right about the 7800 version.

I did download and try out the Windows version from the video.  Plays pretty good.  For some reason, the music doesn't play on the second screen, though.

That looks good.  How well does it play?  Do you know?

No idea, I could download the ROM and try it I suppose - it's freeware now!

I might stick a Spectrum emulator on my Android phone as there is a few very good ones.
