Zool is a "Ninja Of The "Nth" Dimension" who is forced to land on Earth. In order to gain ninja ranking he has to pass six lands. The game is an original arcade platform game, relying on smooth, fast moving gameplay, colorful graphics and a wonderful intro soundtrack by Patrick Phelan that has inspired several modern electro/techno remixes. You control a little ninja by running and jumping through several levels platforms, traps and.... candies! Oh yes! You collect lollipops, Smarties and you fight with jelly pops and several other candy-style creatures! You have to enable the scattered check-points in each level in order to be able to progress to the next one and also to have a check-point loading when being killed by a moving chocolate etc! A typical (and tasty!) arcade platform game that will give much fun to play with.
Note that the game was bundled with the newly launched Amiga 1200 back then, although not the AGA version with enhanced graphics which followed later. Generally the original Amiga edition (and later, the AGA) is still widely considered to be the finest of the lot.
The Atari ST version has nice detailed graphics and huge sprites while the screens offer around 24 colors on-screen. Note that the enhanced STE version has smoother scrolling (still low frame-rate though) while there are a few more colors on -screen (found at the sky shadings, much like the Fire & Ice game). Both ST and STE versions (and PC) are missing a few details found on the Amiga (and Amiga AGA version).
Soundwise, the game here offers the original (Amiga) intro music, but the in-game sound is average, featuring only a few dull sound effects and strangely only the heart beating of your energy as a background sound (same as in all versions though)!
