The Plot

I don't take too kindly to the plot of The Plot. The object is to help Guy Fawkes blow up the Houses of Parliament, no less. This is accomplished by gathering sticks of dynamite and fireworks, then lighting the blue touch paper - not forgetting to retire immediately! A terrorist computer game? I think so!

Anyway, the program itself is less controversial. This is a fairly straightforward but quite enjoyable platform and ladders game, a la Monty Mole. It's programmed by Odin, and as you would expect, graphics and gameplay are highly polished. The Plot is pretty simple stuff, but it does hold a tough challenge, and would be a worthwhile buy for hardened platform freaks. The unavoidable death syndrome can lead to a fair deal of frustration to begin with so be prepared to visit the opening screen several times during your first go. One of the better budget games around at the moment.
