Eric's back again for a new term at school, and the catapult bullets are flying as thick as ever. In Skooldaze, Eric had to steal his rotten report from the Headmaster's safe. Now he's had all summer to forge a new, glowing version. The problem is, how to get it back in the safe again.

Crash!
Skool Daze was one of the best games of 1984 and I’m sure it would still be a hit if it was released today. Back to Skool continues the formula but extra dimension has been added to the game. This game is very playable from the word go but it takes a lot of practice and a lot of time to get anywhere. As for the graphics, they live up to the standards set by Skool Daze, indeed they have been improved upon and the extra playing area makes it a delight to look at. This is a very involving and tough arcade adventure, yet it’s very simple to actually play. Overall it is a fantastic game that is well worth the asking price.

BACK TO SKOOL ist ein graphisch und spielerisch interessantes Programm - auf mehreren Ebenen trollen sich die „verdorbenen“ Burschen. Finden Sie also - in „Personalunion mit Eric“ - den Schlüssel zum Safe. Der Kassette beiliegend sind ein paar nützliche Hinweise abgedruckt, die den Start erheblich erleichtern. Gesteuert wird durch Keyboard oder Joystick.

I've always found Eric a bit uncontrollable and there are times when he seems to be going his own sweet way. And the masters are as bad as ever. They don't give you time to move before dishing out even more lines, which might mean that Eric's education comes to an abrupt end. But on the whole I'm sure he'll live to try again, and a lot of people won't be sorry.
