This program lives up to its insert blurb of being an exciting game. I found it addictive. You are the last person left on Earth who can defend it against the marauding hordes of mutant Kens with only one tool - a shovel.

There are five levels with nine ladders. Your task is to run up and down ladders, digging holes for the green aliens to fall through and turn red. Next, you have to lure them into falling through a second hole to become larger, white super mutants.

The insert states there are 13 levels - but I'm afraid my co-ordination with the seven control keys is obviously so poor that I failed to leave screen one - even when all three aliens became the highest mutant form.

Isn't it possible to replay without having to go back to the title screen? So much time is needlessly wasted. When do points start to appear at screen top, and why is there no hall of fame? The program often crashed, producing martian-style graphics, but even so, it is one to be recommended.
