In effect this is another 'Hunchback' game, but it has been attractively dressed up in the guise of a Punch and Judy show. You must guide hero Bobby across the stage to rescue Judy, while Punch hurls custard pies at you. There are 16 screens which require jumping over holes, swinging acrosss pits, leaping on magic carpets, dodging soldiers' clubs and always keeping an eye open for those custard pies. Judy sometimes throws a sausage acrosss - if Bobby collects three he can whizz across a screen and onto the next without harm. The graphics are amazingly bright and coloured, well animated and with lots of detail. The game also speaks (without a Speech unit). Sensible control keys, joystick: Kempston and Sinclair 2. Highly rated despite the price, CRASH overall rating 88% m/c
