Bionic Granny

The trouble with bargain-basement games is that you're loathe to criticise them - you pays for what you gets, as they say. Given that caveat, this game is still pretty lousy. The scenario is rather perverse too.

You're a granny, waiting to hit children with your "laser-powered brolly" as they come out of school. The only danger you must avoid is a lollipop person, who throws his or her lollipop at you. The game is obviously designed for young children but that cannot excuse the dire lack of playability, the rudimentary graphics, and the careless grammatical mistakes in the on-screen instructions - aargh!
