From time to time there comes a game so stultifyingly, screamingly dull that even I'm not moved to make a painful pun or suggestive jest about it. That time has come again.

I thought we'd finally put the last nail in the Jet Set Willy clone coffin, but here comes cousin Al and if I was Matthew Smith I think I'd consider legal action. Little Al is so close to JSW there's even one object that looks like a wine glass.

If you've never seen an arcade adventure with squidgy graphic and lots of abstract flashes to avoid, then this could give you £1.99-worth of fun. But even then, why not go back to Miner Willy in one of his reincarnations, and not the last in a line at imitators?

They say that it doesn't matter if it's small - it's what you do with it. But in Little Al's case, size does count!
