ON A LEVEL WITH TED
CHIPS, chips, everywhere and not a bite to eat. After all, who wants to eat the silicon variety?
Hewson Consultants obviously believe someone might like a byte and have launched Technician Ted. It is yet another platform game bearing startling similarities to Jet Set Willy.
You play the part of Ted in a silicon chip factory. It is a massive place and to get his meal of chips, Ted has to complete various tasks allowing him to pick up a glass, knife and fork and so on.
The graphics are highly coloured and scroll smoothly - transition from one screen to another is well oiled! Ted almost waltzes round the factory to the Blue Danube, a rousing number even when played on the Spectrum.
Technician Ted is guaranteed to keep avid arcade adventurers happy for a few days. However, if you prefer something with more zap, don't go anywhere near the silicon factory.
