The murder was committed by Miss Scarlett in the Dining Room with the Candlestick.

Sound familiar? Well, it ought to - it's Cluedo, one of the most popular whodunnit board games ever, and now Leisure Genius has brought it out on the C64.

Playing the game on the C64 takes you right back to Christmas holidays when, so sick of re-runs of films seen hundreds of times before, you would switch off the TV and out would come the board games. At least playing with the C64 you can commandeer the TV as well!


The plot plays like something out of an Agatha Christie novel. Mr. Black has been murdered - there are six of you staying in his house. One of you is the murderer and it's up to the players to sniff him out.

Depicted on the screen is an exact representation of the board game complete with Col. Mustard, Professor Plum, the rope, the kitchen, the ballroom and those gory instruments of murder - the rope and dagger.

A great game which, I should imagine, will provide hours of fun this Christmas. A word of warning though - don't cheat - the computer doesn't like it!!
