In Cruiser you go on a long pub crawl round a canal seeking refreshment at each of the lockside pubs. It doesn't matter if you're not a drinker as you may collect either beer or lemonade!
Using the arrow keys, you steer round the waterway starting froom a marina at the top. The course becomes gradually more blocked as other boats appear and moor. Crashing into these too often results in a long walk home or a soaking.
You are given a bot load of provisions, which gradually become depleted. Re-stockiing can only be achieved by returning to the starting point.
The lockside pubs close after serving each pint, so during your journey they must be regularly re-opened to continue scoring.
Overall, amusing with plenty of variety, skill levels run from 1 to 30, well crash-proofed and even an option for users with black and white TVs.
