Notes

One of the most original games EVER written, and is without doubt a Classic. Under-rated at the time. Still a very good and challenging game to play.

Review in Sinclair User Top 50 Spectrum Software Classics. Position 13 out of 50.
'A game based on rubbish does not seem an auspicious idea for a best selling program, but Trashman has rapidly established itself as a classic since its launch early in 1984. You are a dustman collecting suburban dustbins and emptying them in your cart. There is a time limit on each street, and hazards include motor vehicles pavement cyclists and vicious dogs. Featuring tremendous graphics which won New Generation a French Award, the game was designed with the family in mind, having a domestic non-violent theme and little jokes for spectators to enjoy. For sheer originailty Trashaman is one of the best; there are few games as much fun to watch as they are to play.'
