With its simple but charming graphics and machine code speed, Rabbit's Centropods is probably the best of the lot. There's a spider, a flea and a bottom line snail to avoid. The control keys are the most sensible I've come across -0 for left, P for right and O/P together for up. You sail sedately down automatically. A fires. Continuous sound effects add to the thrills. If you clear the screen the wretched creature gets longer and faster. No need for a joystick here, excellent value.
