Your Sinclair (Jan, 1992)
Gosh, I'm just so busy putting Your Sinclair together, month in and month out, that I never get to watch anything on TV. It's a real bummer. By the time I get in, all that's on is Newsnight or Prisoner. So you'll understand when I say that I've never seen Round The Bend on ITV. This is a bit of a shame cos it seems to be the weirdest thing out. And you know me - I like a bit of weirdness. Just last week, for example, I saw a parrot disguised as a golden retriever swimming across the River Avon. (That is weird, Ed) Anyway, back to Round The Bend. Apparently Doc Croc, the editor of a comic, has blown up the printing press and all the bits have ended up in the sewer. Lou Brush (where do they get these names from?) has got to round up the guys, and get them to collect all the pieces. Yep, it's a mad race-against-time jobbie.

Round the bend is difficult to play mainly because control is slow and the background screens are too cluttered to allow accurate judgment of your character's movements. Unfortunately the plot isn't too inspiring either and I can't understand why each sprite makes an unfunny farting sound as he or she jumps. Not what I call riveting entertainment.
