Crash! (Jul, 1985)
I have mixed feelings about this game, on the surface it is an excellent program but I feel that Micro-Gen may be repeating the formula once to often. If you don’t mind that, then Herbert’s Dummy Run may be worth having. The graphics are excellent, even better than those in Everyone’s a Wally, the sound is reasonable and the colour is used well. The game is as infuriating as it’s predecessor and should please the arcade/adventure addicts. Those horrible colour attribute problems are still with us but they really can’t be helped, after a while you tend to ignore them. I think the asking price of £9.95 is a little steep — I feel the game would be much better value at £6.95. Overall it’s a very good program if you don’t mind more of the same. I hope Mikro-Gen’s next game is graphically as good but with a substantially different game format.

The game is packed full of interesting, amusing and fairly difficult tasks for you to complete and riddles to solve. Mikro-Gen are one of the few companies who consistently release better and better software. Herbert's Dummy Run is no exception. Don't be a dummy - get to your local department story and buy it now!

Although representing no great advance on the programming techniques and style of Everyone's a Wally, the game will nevertheless delight fans of the series and provides plenty of humour and excitement for the arcade-adventure brigade.
