Conversions from Spectrum to C64 often disappoint me but the plot of Skool Daze is so good that even the jerky scrolling action does not detract from the enjoyment.
Although gameplay is limited
and the whole thing is set across
three scrolling screens, Skool
Daze provides hours of unruly
fun. It only misses out on
getting a solid 9/10 because the
sequel, Back to Skool, is
somehow even better, as you can
let off stink bombs, get the
teachers drunk on sherry and
even explore the girls’ school
next door. The original, though,
remains one of the best-loved
games of the 8-bit era.
This is a great little game and one which I played a lot on the Spectrum last summer. What particularly appealed to me was the multitude of actions that your character is capable of performing -- punching, firing a catty, whanging teachers, etc -- the attention to detail is immense. Completing the task is no mean feat and it requires a bit of thought as to how you're going to get the combination of the safe. The graphics are very similar to the Spectrum version, but they are still good -- especially when you consider the amount of characters milling around the school. If you do want a really original game that is challenging and fun, then look no further than this, it's a real gem.
The game is packed full of fun gameplay, the graphics do look like a straight speccy port – which it is so fair is fair. The only control issue is navigating the stairs and then getting lines for not being in the right place due to said stairs.. If only schools had disabled stair lifts in them there days… then we could get drunk in them.
