Dave: At last, good old Uncle Clive has finally received the recognition he deserves. Today's the day he has to toddle off to Buck House to collect his gong as a Dame Commander of the British Empire (bet he's chuffed. Ed.) On the way, he's got to cope with all the aggro of commuting, like avoiding the British Rail staff (though I always thought finding them was the tricky bit). Along the way he's also got to eat, drink and be merry.

Using the keyboard or joystick you have to control Clive - or rather his head. Now we all know he's a brainy bloke, or he wouldn't have invented the Speccy, but only showing his bonce is a bit bad! It's up to you to manoeuvre his noddle around the numerous screens collecting the booty in the correct order.

The rest of the graphics are OK I suppose, but the game gets a trifle tedious because of Clive's finicky ways. He just won't do what you want unless he's in exactly the right places. A slight miscalculation and you've lost a life as well as his body. A good 'cheapie' game being sold at full price! 2/5 MISS

Roger: This could have been a satirical savaging of Sir Clive or it could have been a good game. It's neither. 1/5 MISS

Ross: A multi-screen dodge and run game that traded on a guest appearance by Uncle Clive. It kept me awake for an hour or two. but I've had better days. 3/5 MISS
