The instructions that come with the cassette were rather sparse and I did not know what to expect when the game was loaded. However, the wait during the loading time was well worth it. I found this game very addictive and enjoyable.

The setting is a very large cavern containing all sorts of ledges and perches. You, the flea, start off at the bottom and have to jump from one ledge to another to work your way to the top. The cavern is so large that you can only see a portion on the screen but you can only see a portion on the screen but you can scroll left and right to look for further ledges.

While you are jumping around you have to avoid a flying dragon that pursues you. You also have to be careful that you don't jump into, or fall into, insect eating plants.

The graphics are brilliant and in this fantasy land the screen is rich in colour. Throughout the game, a very catchy tune is played, but if you find it distracting you can switch off the music. Altogether a game to be highly recommended, even if it does need joysticks.
