Dave: Here's a word game that bears a remarkable resemblance to another word game called Sc..... well, let's just say that any resemblance between the two is probably purely intentional. This one's described as a fast and furious game for all the family. Mmmm. Fast, maybe but furious, almost certainly - one of those games that's likely to have everyone from 8 to 80 arguing like good'uns.

Certainly, the booklet that comes with it isn't bad so what about the game? Well, on loading you're first asked how many players there are. At the last count there was only one of me, so I shall invent a chum called Bob. In go our initials and away we go. I press a key until a letter appears. Bob presses one, another letter. And so it goes on until one of us spots a word. We then use the Pick key to regroup the letters and the word's made. I'm then asked if I agree that Bob's word 'Blitnung' is valid. If Bob's happy with it, so am I!

The booklet suggests that we keep a dictionary handy. I agree. Word games on the computer will always seem a bit pointless until they have a dictionary built in. This game should aid the decline of literacy no end. 2/5 MISS

Roger: There's a word to describe this game but the Ed would only cross it. Suffice it to say I wasn't impressed. 1/5 MISS

Ross: There's no reason to put this on computer at all. In fact, there's no reason for the game at all. Bored then snored! 1/5 MISS
