Guess what, this is another of those bouncy ball type games. You know that type of game when you have to do all the business with avoiding obstacles and all that. Most of them games, though, are pretty boring int they? But this one's quite good. Eh? What do you mean you don't know what I'm talking about. Oh, you've lived in Somerset all your life. Why didn't you say so. I'll start again, shall I? (Hoi! I know people that live in Somerset! - Ed)

In AR, you play a little chequered ball, that has to bounce down a long corridor, avoiding all the things littered about the place, like the magnets that catch you, or the holes that make you fall to your death if you land on one.

Graphics are nice and clear, with the game relying more on recognisability more than realism, with huge horseshoe magnets and darts. The game scrolls along at a nice fast pace and is very very playable. One of the budget year's best buys, and if it doesn't make it into the top 10 budget games, I'll eat my granny and her bathchair (That's age-ist - Ed)

Terrific little bouncing rerelease and an affordable price. One of the best bargains of the year.
