Yup, a lot of effort went into fixing it, but the detail is lost in the thread...Metalbrain wrote: ↑Mon Jul 29, 2019 7:40 amThat's a known problem, and the game was heavily bugfixed here to make it work:

Given the game is "distribution denied", the fixed game couldn't be provided as a new TZX (ahem) so the approach was twofold:
Write some code to hack the Activision and Sega Master Mix tape releases (not re-cracks), and apply the appropriate fixes "on the fly"
Write some code to load the last level(s), fix it so the game could be completed, and then SAVE the level(s) back to tape
When playing through, load the fixed last level(s) so you could complete the game
All the fixes are here - and for a change, have some vague comments!
