Universal Hero

Arcade adventures must be the second most popular type of game, after shoot-'em-ups, and this budget title offers most of the features you could wish for, including odd objects to collect and strength-sapping aliens to avoid.

Set in a giant maze, around which your hero walks and flies, it's a bright and colourful game calling for much mapping and some lateral thinking as you puzzle out how to use the things that you've collected in your nine pockets.

Its major fault is its instructions - they're totally insufficient, so you have to pick up the finer points by experimentation.
