Mr. Wong's Loopy Laundry

Published in Home Computing Weekly #99

Collecting his gaily coloured washing and depositing it in the laundry shoot, keeps Mr. Wong busy indefinitely.

Out to stop him, and working mob-handed, is a steam iron that is out of order, an ominous looking bag of laundry and some frighteningly lethal soap suds.

At first sight this looks a relatively simple game, but don't be deceived. The aforementioned wrong-doers are always aware of your movements. Their mobility between floors, skimming up and down the various staircases, calls for some dexterous sidestepping if you are to help Mr. Wong clean up.

Starting out with three lives, a novel twist is the ability to scatter starch in the faces of your pursuers. The supply of starch is restricted, so should be used sparingly.

Further supplies of starch are offered later in the game, but have to be collected instantly, before disappearing quicker than a swarm of free-range bees.

Although not mentioned in the instructions, Mr. Wong's movements can be controlled with a joystick as well as the keyboard.

The Chinese style of background music enhances the visual impact of this splendid game.
