Of all the games I have played recently, this is the one at which I am most successful but, rather than give me the impression that this must be a good position, I am of the opinion that it doesn't contain the addictive element which a great game requires.

Copying an arcade game which has a similar name, the aim is to wander around underground eating cherries. You are a wizard, thank goodness, and have a crystal ball to bounce against the umphs, diggers and maras which chase you, after emerging from their central base. The umphs follow the tunnels, the diggers take the fastest path possible and the maras only pursue you if you eat the fruit left at the base. Added to this are bonus letters which you must capture and which give you an extra life while falling apples kill the chasers.

Graphics are good and clear but the lack of a high score chart is surprising. Overall, just a little too tame for most arcade freaks I feel.
