Dave: This one comes in a large box, with a fairly comprehensive instruction sheet containing the storyline. The tale concerns several strangely-named people and seems to have been written to confuse potential players so that they don't realise that this is just another 'move about in the maze, collecting things and putting them in the right place' game.

The object of this extravaganza is basically to collect the six 'Euclidian' shapes and place them in the Guardian's chamber. You're hindered in this task by the nasty Demi-Gods, as they've created lots of fake shapes to confuse you; you also have to make sure that your mother doesn't kill your sister.

Graphically, the game is very good with large sprites and several different types of 'nasty' all well animated. It also boasts an 'intelligent' joystick feature that stops you having to press loads of different keys; movements of the joystick (or keypresses) do different things when you're in certain locations!

Unfortunately, Gift from the Gods didn't really hold my interest, as there really isn't much to do beyond filling a large piece of paper with a map of the Labyrinth. 2/5 MISS

Ross: I don't think much of the Gods if this is all they can come up with for a gift. Another of the multi-millioned screen bores, but one that docs contain pretty graphics. 1/5 MISS

Roger: Excellent graphics and... um... that's about it really! Hah, it's all Greek to me... 2/5 MISS
