Review of 'Moley Christmas'

Rating:4 User: The Dean of Games

This was a free game included in a magazine and is one of the best I have ever played, and possibly one of the best games in the Monty series.

All comes together quite nicely, from the graphics, to the sound, to the great play ability and down to the plot. Contrary to other Monty games, who follow the maze-collect-objects Jet Set Willy game play, Moley Christmas goes for the Manic Miner one screen at a time style. Which, for me, is way more compelling and addictive.

A great game, not only for fans of the series but for every lover of platforms.
