SummaryInventive torture screens - pity about the rest of it.
The GoodThe colourful, detailed graphics and the torture screens which involve you working out a way to save a friend from horrific death on inventive torturing equipment. It's almost worth letting the pal die just to see the hilariously gory results.
The BadThe main problem with the game is that you can be walking along quite happily when suddenly the music stops and the screen goes funny. It doesn't take you long to realise the game's crashed, but there really isn't anything you can do to stop it happening again. You just have to switch the computer off and re-load the game from scratch. But when every play results in the game crashing it isn't long before you toss the cassette in the bin. Another problem is the platform levels. They are one-direction and soon start to become monotonous. Graphics apart, they're nothing special, and they soon become frustratingly difficult. It seemed the makers of this game were more interested in what the game looked like rather than how it played.
