The Blues Brothers review

Amiga Action (1991): "It's been a long wait but it was worthwhile. The characters have been successfully captured, being depicted in their charismatic ways. Instantly identifiable Blues Brother melodies thump out toe-tapping beats. It is not only the vibrant Brother atmosphere that shines through but the gameplay is smooth and addictive. This stands as one of the most fun movie conversions to date. A tribute to the boys, platform entertainment, and an illustration of how movie conversions should be produced: with care and quality."

    Underestimated game I think! A bit short maybe, but great fun.

    You can enter doors by holding down SPACEBAR and pressing UP

    I'm so happy to find this here, right as I am inspired (by the movies) to play it. I used to play on my Amiga 500+ in the mid-90'ies.
    However, I don't know how to enter doors in this DOS/PC port and so, I can't get beyond Level 1.
