...only legal way...

Another legal way would be owning the original, which I am sure you can still get on Ebay, and then run it in DOSBox.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Really now. Include the original in an ARCADE VIGNIETTE when the game was never in arcades. AND MAKE IT MANDATORY. No fullscreen.
From the review I saw it seems the ''arcade'' version doesn't even have sound? That's pretty shitty.

They don't have the rights for the original music. Hence there is not even remixed soundtrack in the remake.
