Having played this on the 464 with the legendary Green Screen Monitor,back in '91, it came as a bit of a shock that everything was blue when I booted
this up last month, in hindsight perhaps the clue was in the title. 

The game centres on the titular brothers trying to collect various instruments to complete levels so they can play a gig at the end of it. 
 
 There are many great touches, from the varied enemies to the secret rooms hidden around the levels, and the choice of playing as either Jake or Elwood on each level too.

Sadly I never did complete this first time round as my Amstrad Action tape had a fault on level three that stopped me getting anywhere but now it'll be sucking hour after hour of my life away again, just like the good old days!
