Spiky Harold

The object of this game is to gather enough food for Harold the hedgehog to live on during hibernation. The essential items are scattered on and below a large hedgerow whose other inhabitants would rather see our spiny-backed hero starve to death. Amongst the many items to be collected are coins that give extra lives, glasses of wine that reverse Harold's directions, apples and other such delicacies but unfortunately all the items are protected by wasps, rodents, sulphur clouds, bouncing balls and other devices.

All the items have to be collected within the 24 hours displayed on the clock at the bottom of the screen. If you manage to gather all of the items in the allotted time, then you must return Harold to his pad where he can sleep the winter away.

Spiky Harold is a good platform game and has plenty of entertainment to offer for such a small price.
