Platform games have always had a frustration element, and this tower-turning variant is one of the best at it. The whole aim is to get to the top of the tower, and everything is trying to stop you.

Imagine the horror that strikes your heart as you near the top of the tower, with time running out, knowing that one false move will send you tumbling a horrible distance back down again.

The puzzles and aliens can also have you chewing through your lip in mental agony. They have a knack of appearing just when it's most awkward for you, or putting a disappearing block where you least expect it.

You can easily spot Nebulus players because they eventually become resigned to these spirit-crushing disasters and adopt sad expressions, drooped heads and sloping shoulders. Then again, you should see them when they complete a tower - they would go down a treat on "The Price is Right".
