Here's yet another additon to the longline of Manic Miner clones where the game's addictiveness more than compensates for the lousy graphics.

As the Rockman, you have to tear around the screen eating mushrooms and avoiding the ghoulish smiling faces that seem to follow you wherever you go. I say 'seem to follow you' because they do have quite a strict routine of movement which can, after a while, be predicted.

Rockman can move incredibly fast when he wants to, but he can also be controlled accurately.

Once you reach certain levels, you're assigned a password which means you can bypass the easy and familiar levels and start on unknown territory right away.

Overall, not one of the best arcade games I've seen but, if you're looking for a game to while away an hour or two, Rockman comes highly recommended.
