Pasteman Pat

Ooh, the dirty doings of business competition, eh? Pat, the finest bill sticker in town, is having a hard time keeping his work up to scratch, since his rival, Nasty Norville, is going around messing his posters up. Pat must use his brush, ladder and sloppy paste to slide the panels back into place.

However, Norville and his henchmen throw things at Pat to try and get him to fall off the ladder and put a stop to his work.

The idea of a sliding block puzzle game is hardly original, and Pasteman Pat is one of the worst I've ever played. The viewing area is very small, the control poor, the graphics confusing and the gameplay frustrating. Not much for puzzle fans here, I'm afraid. My advice is to go for Zenji, or save your money for Tetris.
