FROOT LOOP is a very standard arcade game in which you have to eat apples and, occasionally, blue bananas, while avoiding the guards and making your way round the screens. They are divided into progressively smaller units.

The game is designed to be used either with keyboard control or with a Kempston joystick, which works satisfactorily. There is a range of skill levels, of which the advertising material reports that number six is "impossible".

This is scarcely an exageration. It is, however, almost equally difficult to determine from the instructions how to blast your way through impenetrable walls.

There is a time limit to the game and it becomes progressively more difficult, especially if you make mistakes and lose lives when the guard increases speed.

The graphics, though smooth, are essentially boring and the concept is far from original. It is doubtful if it would enthral even the most enthusiastic arcade player for long.
