Imagine, Spectrum version reviewed, £8.99cs

The urban gung-ho combat nut is really out of his depth this time. Forget cleaning up the mean streets of the city: he's battling through time zones against the nastiest things history can throw at him.

The battle starts in prehistoric times where dinosaurs and cavemen, looking like Rock and Gravel who drove the Bouldermobile in Wacky Races, try to beat his skull to a pulp. He must battle along the scrolling landscape, jumping gaps and climbing walls, to get to a couple of major confrontations. These are against multiple opponents who all attack at once.

Battle to the end of the level and a time machine will whisk him off to the next time zone. All the energy and lives are replaced and battle is rejoined against a new group of sprites. The second zone is ancient Egypt, full of mummies, the third zone is a mediaeval encounter with knights and the fourth a trip into the future.

The action is very similar to the previous game: enjoyable but undemanding. It has been a good series of games but hopefully this is the Final Chapter.

You're the cool dude in the shades being attacked by birds and dropping eggs and West Ham supporters throwing rocks.
