Haven't I seen this somewhere before? Yes, it's a re-release, though goodness only knows how we've all managed to last without it!

You play the part of Pud Pud, a roundish character with wings who's trapped in Weird World... unless, of course, he can bring himself to find and eat the ten puddings left by the deadly Mrs Pud Pud. Heard enough? Yes. I think we can safely dismiss the storyline and get straight into the action....

Weird World is very strange (odd, that), and populated with some very out-of-the-ordinary creatures. Some are deadly but, on the other hand, some provide the energy you need to continue the pudding hunt.

The game works well via keyboard or joystick, it's just the scoring system that's a bit peculiar. Eat the small creatures that keep bugging you and you get a few measly points - consume a pudding and a whacking 9,000 points are added to your score. Very disorienting!
