Summary

Sequel to the 'school simulator' game Skooldaze

The Good

The characters and interaction are all as good as before. The school is now much more developed and realistic-looking, and there are added features such as assemblies, the girls' school and the playing fields. The puzzles also add an extra angle to the gameplay.

The Bad

If you don't want to change the characters' names but later change your mind you have to re-load the game (but as I never really bothered about changing their names this is just a minor gripe).

The Bottom Line

Eric, our schoolboy hero, has spent the school holidays forging a report card, but now has to face the task of putting it securely in the headmaster's safe. Therefore you, as Eric, must deal with numerous obstacles in order to see to it that you come up smelling of roses. Problems include how to leave the school during lesson-time, how to avoid the patrolling caretaker and where to find stink-bombs. The characters from the first game, Skooldaze, are present and correct, are joined by additional characters such as Eric's girlfriend and the headmistress of the girls' school. Once again the problem of how to avoid being given lines rears its ugly head, but practice makes perfect as they say.
