Zoot's an ugly little sprite. But he's a darling compared to the horrors that he finds in the sewers on his search for his missing marbles(!).

With four lives, Zoot starts off punching out his opponents - a selection of ghoulies and ghosties with silly names - but, on the second screen, he has to trap each of the ghosts on a separate ledge. Points are awarded throughout the game but it's the missing marbles that Zoot is really after. It's all very confusing, and extremely frustrating... but it does have you screaming for more.

The program boasts 234 screens, but you'll be lucky to get past the fourth - so you may never find out if the company is making exaggerated claims or not!

Zoot is a very simple platform game - but one that's very addictive and a lot of fun. Shame it's made much too confusing by introducing a silly plot-line that really has little to do with the on-screen action.
