A game of pure genius. I find out now that it was very derivative but at the time in the early days of innocence it was a fantastic budget title. Despite huge differences it reminds me of Pacman in that it comes down to very characteristic bad guys and which way they are going to jump. Otherwise it is Q-bert that it replicates adding its own humour into the mix and a great central character. A good learning curve leads you nicely into the intricacies of the play and then slowly ups the ante until it gets bloody difficult. Overall a slight game but one to be enjoyed for its quirky character.
