THE TASK is hardly run of the mill and graphics hardly sophisticated in this drain of a game from Taskset.

Your objective is to keep the pipeline open. No holes or gaps must appear in it and it would be more than your job is worth if water escaped and did not run into the barrels below the pipe.

As foreman Fred you have two helpers who will hammer any hole closed. But first you must collect them and lead them to the leak. Obstacles include evil insects, intent on chewing you to death, and various power tools which have wills of their own.

Despite the awful graphics the player will also be disappointed with the playability of the game - worse than the original arcade version. The graphics could have been at least as colourful, even allowing for the Spectrum screen restrictions.

Super Pipeline II is like Jaws II, all packaging and no bite.
