Rupert And The Toymaker's Party

Good old Rupert the bear has been helping Mr Bear, like all good bears should do, but all his chums have dashed of to a party and are busy tucking into their currant buns and drinking lashings of ginger pop.

How will Rupert get to the party before all the tuck is wolfed down? Well, Rupert's friends have left a trail of invitations for him to follow. You (playing Rupert) must follow these and get to the party. There are four routes that you can follow and various things stand in your way. The main area is the castle with toy soldiers guarding it.

The gameplay is similar to the usual ladders and platforms with Rupert jumping around the various levels of the castle. The game is obviously aimed at the younger gamer though Quicksilva reckon that older players will still find it challenging - time will tell.

The graphics are quite good and Rupert is very recognisable (C64 version). I haven't seen the Spectrum version which will obviously have cruder graphics.

This is intended to be the first of a series of Rupert games. This one is alright. Not brilliant, but reasonable.
