Another cult coin-op classic is about to sneak out on budget, and luckily for you if you missed it the first time - highly likely as its launch at full price three years ago was a strangely low key affair. Strange when you consider that this 3D Pacman style game was one of the most addictive cabinets ever to stand in an arcade. You play the part of Bentley the Bear who must gather all of the gems dotted around the floor of eighteen ice structures. Each level must be completely clear before progressing to the next and Bentley must make use of the lifts, pulleys, ramps and hidden passages if he is to succeed. The skeletons, bees, Gem Eaters and Berthilda the witch are keen to hang on to the gems. Ultimately pointless yet totally unputdownable arcade entertainment.
