Crimebusters inc.

Another nice simple playable little game from Players, inspired in the main by Impossible Mission but with a few neat touches of its own. You play Bernie the Burglar, and you wander around houses blagging things.

Well, it's a living. But it's an odd neighbourhood. Instead of staircases and rooms, these houses are full of trampolines. Not only that, but there are rozzers, ghoulies and heaven knows what on your tail. So what you have to do is blag everything from each house (whatever's movable, that is) and avoid the meanies within a time limit.

Sounds a bit boring, doesn't it? But it ain't. The graphics, for a Spectrum cheapie. are excellent, and staying out of jail is a surprisingly addictive challenge. The only real problem is finding out what the game is all about from all the guff on the cassette inlay. Ads? Only wall-to-wall, squire. Still, good fun for a couple of quidlets.
