Atom Ant

Up and at 'em Atom Ant! You're the only one who can save the city from being blown into tiny pieces by Mad Dog Jackson. He's the big boss of the meanest gang ever and has planted bombs all over the city's most treasured buildings and demanded one 1 million pounds to disarm them. Can the city be saved from total destruction? You're the only one who can answer that question armed with nothing but your trusty atomiser.

Atom Ant, like other games in Hi-tec's Hanna-Barbera series, has superbly drawn and animated sprites and highly detailed scenery. The graphics on the buildings and enemies are nothing short of brilliant and Atom Ant zips around them with ease. I just wish there had been a little more colour. The objective is to collect all the bombs and chuck 'em in the atomiser, the higher the level of play the more bombs have to be defused. Icons, when picked up, are helpful: an alarm clock gives you a minute of extra time, a helmet protects your head and loaves of bread are nice to munch on.

Atom Ant is another excellent conversion of a Hanna-Barbera cartoon. All fans of the character will love it and will be addicted from the word go.
