Major Blink: Berks 2

Apart from the subtitle, you'd be hard pushed to spot any resemblance between Major Blink and the other two Berks titles. The tenuous connection is in fact the Major, creator of the Berks, now turned painter and decorator.

This is one of those games where you have to score points by painting blocks on a grid. Supercool bears, wearing shades and gold medallions try to thwart your efforts by repainting your work. These you can dispose of with your 'fast action, high velocity, belt mounted laser cannons'.

Talk about heavy on the armaments. I must admit to feeling a bit sorry for the supercool bears, up against that lot, with only a pair of Ray-burns to protect themselves.

The appearance of the homing drones of Berks 1 and 3 do little to enliven a basically lukewarm game. It might appeal to younger or less experienced games players.

Calling all Berks fans. If you are a fan of the excellent Berks series then you won't want to miss your chance to get the fourth and final game in the series absolutely free.

The game is published in listing form in our Celebrity Book Of Games which came free with this magazine.

If you don't want to type it in it is available on tape from CRL, 9 Kings Yard, London E15. Please send cheque or postal order for £3.00. Your application must include a cut-out of this review.
