I love it, I love it not, I love it... well, we'll just skip the rest and come to the conclusion that I love it. Not only is Mikie a masterful conversion from the arcade original, its also an extremely addictive game.

Our romantic hero, Mikie has fallen under the spell of the age-old ague, love. His girlfriend waits by the schoolyard gates, cheerleading away while he rushes round the school collecting letters to for a love-letter to send her.

There are five sections to the game each set in a different room in the school. We start in the classroom where Mikie has to push his classmates off their chairs to collect the hearts on the back. Then whizz off to the locker room, the canteen, the gym, where they bring on the dancing girls, and finally to the schoolyard where Mikie's girl's waiting. In between there's the short dash between rooms but fortunately, you wont need to do any homework on that bit.

If you love the mad whirl of a good arcade game and aren't put off by the sloppy theme of this one, then Mikie should set your heart all a flutter.

Watch out for gum fire. If teacher gets angry at your antics, he'll throw his false teeth in your direction. Luckily, there's not tooth in the rumour that he's a good shot!

Your message is displayed here as you collect the hearts. Eventually, it'll read OPEN and that's just what'll happen to the door. Now run out.

When you find yourself in a tight spot, plonk your bum on this seat and teacher will ignore you - just make sure his dentures don't make a dent.

Meet Mikie. It's his task to bump off his classmates - but only off their seats, you understand, so he can get to the heart of the matter underneath.
