Personal review
Karnov is a decent platform/shooter arcade port with nine quite varied levels. Except the unusual hero (a russian bodybuilder-type guy) the game lacks outstanding features though. It has a little bit of everything but nothing very memorable. Strangely they removed all the little cut scenes between levels from the US version and seemed to change the overall story. Not that it affects gameplay itself but I generally dislike such actions.

Karnov, a big fat Russian man, is on a quest to find treasure, and who can really blame him? Not me! But there's enemies that are standing in his way, but he can use his firepower to keep some odds in his favor.

Editor note
Noticeably altered version of the arcade game. Although superficially the same game, there's significant changes to it.
