Dk'Tronics certainly do things big! Following their success with mega-huge graphics on Popeye they've used the same format for this slice of the seaside postcode buffoonery of Benny As Hill.

As Hill's subtle Scuttle persona (and scuttle is what you'll do plenty of), bereted and bespectacled, you have to negotiate a crowded street to help Mrs. Harras get her washing in. Walk into any hazards - walls, lamp-posts and so on and you'll lose points. It's never explained why Mrs Harras' washing line is in the middle of the road. Nor can you explain to the street busybody that you're not nicking the knickers but helping. So this enraged and, of course, enormously busted woman will chase and trample you revealing here Norah Barry bloomers to the world - and what's worse, pinch back the clothing.

Should you succeed in your longjohn larceny (20 points a garment, whether bra or trousers) within the allotted time, you'll pass on to stages 2 and 3. And once again, much as in life, your innocence will be misconstrued and farmers and policemen will give chase.

True Hill fans will lament the absence of Hill's Angels and the risky jokes but if you prefer being chased to chaste, this is the one for you, poor soul.
