A bit of an oldie this, but its still quite good all the same.

(A few plays later.) In tact, I'd almost go as far as to say that I quite like it. But what's it all about, eh?

Well, it's kind of like those slidey puzzle games (where you must slide those plastic square bits around to make up a normally-crap piccy of Lassie or some such equally attractive persona), but with a few subtle changes to add to the fun. Firstly, you can collect the pieces one at a time, keeping them or temporarily chucking them out through a gap in the wall. Once you've got one you can't just put them where you want either - just like in the similar puzzles of the plastic kind, you have to slide them completely to one side or the other - if you see what I mean. And things get more complicated as you progress (Clive Sinclair really is a bummer to get together for instance) with things such as bombs (which blow everything up), holes in the wall (where pieces can fall out), bonuses which you can throw together (for extra score and lives) and a variety of other things which I, erm, can't quite remember, cluttering everything up. Still, it's actually not too bad at all.

This was Domark's unofficial Spitting Image game (from before it got the licence) but it's actually more fun than the 'real' one. (Not sure why anybody would want to put Maggie back together again though.)
