Roll up, roll up! Take off your jacket, take aim and take your best shot at 'Quackers', a delightful and diverting game for the young at heart.

The game is set, as you may have guessed, in a shooting gallery and you are invited to take pot shots at moving cats, bunnies, ducks, faces and even a full size, if rather docile, turtle!

Good use is made of colour graphics and sound - the game feels like a shooting gallery with the numerous targets moving in different directions.

The faces are quite hard to hit due to the presence of a moving wall in front of them with only a small gap in it. If you manage to hit all the targets within the time limit you get to take on the turtle.

In my view the game is a little too easy and lacks lasting playability for this. The turtle was an easy 200 points! Nevertheless this novel game will probably become a firm favourite among Spectrum owning children and tired parents longing for a change from "shoot-'em-up" games.
