"PERFORM revolutionary micro-surgery during this fantasy journey through the long lost monsters body. Deposit the secret formula from your especially equipped micro submarine in the bionic implants scattered throughout the body's organs."

Thus reads the ungrammatical blurb on the cassette inlay of Frankenstein 2000. Sounds familiar? Don't be fooled. This game bears as much resemblance to Quicksilva's Fantastic Voyage as it does to entertainment.

In the trachea your sub has to avoid the hopping frogs; in the lungs you do battle with cigarette packets. Lurking in the stomach are undigested fried eggs and greasy bacon. What a hoot.

Your rapidly diminishing oxygen supply can be replenished by a brief shoot-'em-up after every two organs, in which you fire at rampaging oxygen molecules. Damage to your craft can only be repaired by locating spanners.

The graphics are large, coloured and uninspired. Arcade nuts will find most screens a doddle, but the infantile humour will defeat them.

As a budget game it would be average. As it is, almost any other game at the same price is better value for money. Fantastic Voyage certainly is.
