Summary

Great Pacman-like game with more thinking and strategy

The Good

It is somewhat similar to Pacman. You open the question marks and either discover a baby turtle that needs rescue or an enemy beetle. (I didn't know turtles and beetles were enemies...) As you carry the baby turtle to a safe house, the beetles try to catch you. You can drop "bug bombs" to stop them. It's a simple game but surprisingly fun, and certainly there is a lot more thought involved than most maze games.

The Bad

Not much to complain about. The graphics are a bit plain, but serviceable. There is a nice opening screen with a tune that plays. Controls are good. Over all just a great game for the O2. It is not that common, but you can find a cartridge on eBay for maybe $20 or so.

The Bottom Line

A thinking man's Pacman.
