YET ANOTHER three-dimensional maze. It is incredible that anyone with a sense of what the market expects should produce another maze game in which you move round collecting treasure and gaining points.

The damning criticism may be just a little too harsh - but only just. In Skull, for the 48K Spectrum, you also have to avoid the skulls with jewelled eyes which inhabit the complex and make sure that you do not get stuck in corners of the maze where bars fall from the ceiling.

One other problem you may encounter is the trapdoors which will open and close as if they had minds of their own.

If you solve one level of the complex the computer will transport you to another more difficult floor. When the game finishes you may be able to put your name on the high score table which takes your level number into account.

The graphics and the quick and easy response of the game are two factors in its favour. It is, however, difficult to find the instructions when playing. Skull is produced by Games Machine.
