Spectrum 2.0

Review of 'Bugaboo the Flea'

Rating:4 User: Stack

Bugaboo is an absolute triumph of design. The drawing and the colours show off the Spectrum palette well and the cave design and dragon build great atmosphere.
That little cave seemed unfathomably huge, yet it only takes an expert a matter of seconds to leap out and complete the game.
Remarkably few players ever bring the hapless flea to the surface in this flea flee to fleedom epic.
Its a beautiful and simple game, just jump left or jump right and try not to panic.
A strange anomaly is that the authors behind it created a few more games for the Spectrum but delivered nothing that can touch Bugaboo for quality.
