It is a little simpler to play because the opponents are less aggressive. But this is just perfect for me, I used to play the CGA PC version recently, which for me is too difficult and too frustrating.
BTW, this game would be a good target for Chroma colourisation (and UDG as well), I will see what can be done with it.
Oh, I could not resist:
