Personally, whenever my Specct breaks down I just bang it against the wall a few times and hope for the best. (Well, it worked once anyway.) However (however! however!) Mastertronic seem to have had an even better idea - why not stick loads of little robot thingies inside your computer to crawl about and fix any minor probs before anything major goes wrong? Cunning, eh? Unfortunately, though, someone has to train these droidish minions in the first place to show 'em what to do. And no prizes for guessing who that someone is. Yep, it's yoou-hoo!
Sounds complicated? Nothing could be further from the truth. All you have to do is zoom your little robot jobby (in the shape of a mouse) around these tracks in the circuit board, pick up spare bits of track which have been dumped all over the shop, and then be on the look-out to plonk them down when a fault develops (or, more precisely, when a gap in your track appears). Loads of strange little circle things follow you about and sap your energy if you collide with them.
Of course, you may well think that all this seems a trifle on the boring side. And you'd be completely right. It's crap. The track is vastly small and nothing new ever happens - you're stuck on the same level for ever and ever and ever and ever. Which isn't a very nice place to be in the first place really. Exter-er-er-minate!
