Your little man climbs up and down ladders in an attempt to grab bags of money without getting nobbled by nasty bank robbers.

The game is very good and had me playing for hours. The instructions were printed on the cassette insert and were easily followed.

The bank manager has to collect up the bags of money without being killed by four burglars who sometimes plant time bombs which he has to defuse - no ordinary bank manager.


The graphics and sound are both very good. You can turn the sound off, but if you do, watch out for the bombs or you'll miss the ticking.

The only thing I found very annoying was the High Score list. To enter initials, you positioned a cursor over the letter then pressed return.

More often than not, I didn't bother. Why didn't Softspot use the normal Hi-Score input routines around?
