Mr. Ee

Mr. Ee is an excellent version of the arcade game Mr. Do, and must rate as one of Micro Power's best releases yet.

In the game, you take the part of a wizard whose job it is to collect all of the cherries in the orchard. Unfortunately there are angry 'Umphs' on the rampage which will try to stop you from doing this. To kill the Umphs, you can throw your magical crystal ball at them, hoping that it will bounce around the orchard and kill one of them, or you can crush them with apples which fall down when the ground underneath is dug away.

Mr. Ee features ten different screens and has an awful lot happening at once, although, understandably, the game slows down when there are eight Umphs and various other creatures on the screen.

If you are looking for one special game this Christmas, then you should seriously consider this one. Although there is no high score table in the game (due to the amount of memory needed), this shouldn't spoil your enjoyment of such a good game.
