In a further attempt to undermine the integrity, purity and clean livingness of the noble arcade tradition, Automata, the well-known TV pundits on computerology, have released Pi-Eyed. This game is destined to go straight to the top of the Moral Majority Chart of unfavoured programs!
It stars none other than the Piman, but a Piman to whom success has had a deteriorating effect. He's hit the bottle and now staggers bleary-eyed from pub to pub In search of liquid oblivion.
The scene is the street, and Piman is trotting along. If he gets hit by a car he loses points. You can take him into one of the many pubs lining the street, but he can't leave until he has drunk all the pints on the bar. This involves diving in between the chatting regulars without disturbing them (loses points), slipping up on crisp packets and things (loses points) or slipping on slops (more gone).And of course there is also the by now obligatory treat of a bonus hit single on the reverse of the tape. Pi-Eyed, described as a heart-rending message, written by Lurch, the office parrot.
