BBC Model B

Published in Home Computing Weekly #94

Zelob the Melkon has been marooned on the space station Ewgeebez. To escape, he must collect twelve power crystals to activate the main teleport which he must find in the mass of corridors. Easy enough task - except for the alien creature which regularly teleports in from neighbouring foreign planets and of course the space station's own defence mechanisms, patrolling robots armed with deadly laser beams.

So goes the inlay card. Roughly translated, it means you control a creature in a maze and must collect twelve crystals avoiding the monsters mentioned above. Trivial, you may think, but the maze is big and the graphics are good.

Mode 1 is used so individual characters are incredibly detailed. The various creatures are superbly animated and all behave in a different way. It will take you a long time to map out the maze and finish the quest.

It may not be the most incredibly original and mind-shatteringly complex game ever devised for a home computer, but it is very good fun.

It any case, at £2.99, it must be a bargain.
