1988 Gremlin Graphics (UK)
by Gary Priest, Kevin Bulmer, Jon Harrison and Ben Daglish

Gremlin did a good job converting the classic cartoon hero into our Speccy. The characters (live and dead) and backgrounds are well detailed and well animated. Some colour was added to the presentation so the look of the game doesn't feel too monochrome. The tune at the beginning is also quite nice.

Maybe the best part of the game are the sub-games including in the main game. The familiar ones are Space Invaders or Pac-Man, too not mention all (surprise, surprise). The main game is also interesting unlike Lazy Jones, which was the first game I played that used sub-games and lacked a real objective.

Overall it feels somewhat dated to 1988, but on the other hand it is very enjoyable, both to play and look at.
