HOSPITALS have never been popular places and with its boast, 'Worst hospital in the world,' St Crippens won't change that. Patients never recover and often disappear for ever.

Guiding your patient around you explore the rooms searching for clothes - essential to your escape. Hospital staff will pursue you. There are bedpans lying about the ward floors, mutants in the Genetic Engineering Department and mould on the kitchen floor. All must be avoided.

Detailed graphics are limited and barely adequate. There are patients strung up in beds wearing body plasters or playing darts in the games room; the matrons have buns in their hair. It is difficult to pick out your patient amongst the swarm after him, as all characters tend to look alike.

Controlling the patient is tiresome. He refuses to react immediately and often gets caught.

It is sold at the cheaper end of the market, but it could do with a shot in the arm or a medical examination before realease.
