Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Mikie'

Rating:4 User: Stack

The Konami coin-op seemed influenced by a Benny Hill brand of comedy as the teachers, janitors and chefs caper after Mikie as Mikie colects hearts through five different school scenes linked by connecting corridors.The first teacher even has giant false teeth to chuck at Mikie. A love story, the risks Mikie takes are all to get to give his girl a playground kiss. After these levels the game wraps around but is harder.
This camp kissy comedy was a perfect vehicle for arcade maestro Jonathan Smith who delivered a great conversion to the Spectrum. It can be frustratingly hard to get past the janitor in those corridors though.
This game comes truly alive in high score competition and the Internet currently allows you to do so at myspeccy.org
