I wasn't expecting to see this one again. It's absolutely ancient. (I'm not sure I was even born in 1985.) But despite this, and the fact that the plot is worryingly bizarre, Mikie is actually rather good. You're a bit of a 'lad', you see, your school's equivalent of our Rich, and the object of the game is to 'plant one' on your girlfriend who's waiting for you at the end of five levels of classroom frolics. To get from screen to screen you've got to collect hearts while trying to avoid various members of staff who naturally want to put a stop to all this. It plays even more weirdly than it sounds, although once you get the hang of it it's actually very easy, and you'll find yourself completing all the levels loads of times each time you play. That is, assuming you buy it. And you've got every reason to do so, as it's tidily put together and really quite enjoyable.
