A Trick Of The Tale
I never liked the Genesis album. And I didn't like the game. Central specialises in budget games but you can take the budget bit too far.
For a start, it's a Manic Miner - collect the musical notes, avoid the sprites, jump the platforms. Still one of the best games anyone ever designed. But this particular example has a poxy 15 screens, flickery sprites, attribute problems and very little content.
In emergencies, when there's nothing else to say about a game, you can usually describe the contents of each of the screens. Umm, my attempts at mapping consist solely of On Route To Volcano ... leads to ... ZX Basic. Ooops. Central can do better than this. And so can you.
