Editorial Reviews

Your Sinclair

"There you are, as Bulbo, sitting down and about to enjoy some cocoa and cakes when... oh no... it's that wretched knock at the door which can only mean one thing - trouble! Why can't people leave us adventurers in peace once in a while? Do they think we like always having to go out and save the world and find treasures?

Grand Alf disagrees, though. You did so well on your last adventure, he tells Bulbo, that here's another one for you! Rats. He goes on at the press of a key to tell you that you have to go out and defeat Stratos, who sounds to me more like the owner of the Rochdale Kebab Take-Away than an evil tyrant. So Grand Alf gives you a crystal dagger, tells you to get on with it and beggars off down to the local lake for a spot of fishing. Typical."
