Whatever happened to Jonah Barrington? I'm told that he's now running a squash farm in Kidderminster, or something, his days of world-championship squashing glory now long gone. But when Jonah Barrington's Squash appeared in 1985, he was Mr Golden Boy British Sporting Champion of Everything (ie the only Brit to win anything in the whole universe) so the licence made a bit more sense, unlike squash itself which seems singularly pointless, consisting as you probably recall of two men taking turns to bounce a small hard ball off a wall in a fairly girly manner.

Oddly enough the game itself is quite good, due largely to the strangely life-like animation of the two players. You can play against a computer or flesh-and-blood opponent, there are several difficulty levels and all the rules of the game are supported (whatever they are). There's even a spot of sampled speech for a birrovalaff. Yeah, give this one a quick whack around the bedroom.

Looks lousy from th screenshots, but plays well - keep your balls in play.
