Billed as a cross between ET and Stan Laurel, the cutesy Sweevo was popular enough first time round to merit the sub-aqua sequel Hydroiool. The gametasks are broadly the same in both, involving the collection of useful objects and handy weapons to use in ridiculous tasks. The authors' bizarre sense of humour will have you saying boo to a goose, killing jellyfish with spoons and running up brownie points by - well, by collecting brownies. Graphically very strong stuff, but the lack of a jump facility can make both games rather flat to play. Also of interest is Sweevo's Whirled, a larger version of Sweevo's World running only on 128K Spectrums.
