Mastertronic, Spectrum, Amstrad. £2.99

Of all the ridiculous things to do a simulation of, fruit machines are by far the dumbest. The WHOLE point of fruit machines is to win money: take the cash away, and they are almost entirely redundant.

However, experience has shown that there are people prepared to shell out hard cash for them. On the Amstrad, this one is very colourful but the reels are awfully slow. It also does not have as many features as the Spectrum. The Spectrum looks much worse but at least it has fast reels and lots going on all the time.

Basically this is computer entertainment for vegetables. Sit and watch the pretty reels spin round and jump for joy as they come to a halt on three lemons: or could it possibly just be one big lemon?
