The Trap Door

It's an open and shut case for The Trap Door. It's great, wonderful fun, etc, etc.

If you haven't come into contact with The Trap Door until now, where have you been? Down a hole?

The game is based on the new animated TV show which should still be on your screens. Berk, Drutt and Boni will be very familiar to you by now.

Berk is a big blue blob who lives in the depths of a gloomy castle. His role is to serve the unseen "thing upstairs" and slave away at completing various tasks set.

Below the Trap Door lurk all sorts of weird and not so wonderful things and not so wonderful things which are useful in helping Berk carry out his orders. In all there are five tasks to complete. They must be finished or the Thing gets really angry. His fury is measured on the Anger-Meter at the bottom of the screen.

Berk's tasks are many and varied - as are the things that appear from under the Trap Door. Like the Spectrum version, this is a fun game. Those of you without a sense of humour should steer clear of Berk and his mates. But the rest of us will really enjoy it!

The graphics are wonderfully big and colourful and hugely entertaining. The Trap Door is fun with a capital F. Don't miss out.
