It seems Miguelito a less than bright student, bored with classes decided to break is own record of burying pencils one by one inside his nose, as you can guess he lost conscience and fell down his desk, plunged into a deep coma. When he woke up, he was in front of a huge, enormous nasal orifice. He didn’t know how he got there, he was just positive that, if he didn’t remove the twelve pencils from his skull, he could never escape from that nightmare…
In a twist ala Fantastic Voyage, you guide Miguelito thru a big maze consisting of his own head, recovering every single pencil.
The game plays similarly as Jet Set Willy, but modernized, lots of platforms, pencils to pick up, elevators that look like small hurricanes, germs that can kill, and a few chorizo sandwiches that you eat when you feel exhausted. The game itself can be enjoyable if you like this sort of games, I myself didn't feel too excited playing it, it's all too seen and done and the color scheme does not help either. But I bet fans of this sort of games will be happy playing it.
