DE-FUSION, for the 48K Spectrum, has Happy Larry as a bomb disposal expert. His mission, should he choose to accept it, is to defuse a never-ending supply of time bombs while collecting (lags and avoiding the skinhead's boot and the demon skulls.

The game starts with the screen being covered by square stepping-stones, on to some of which are added the flags and skulls. Larry must then reach the time bomb without getting caught. To make life more difficult, every time he stands on a stepping-stone it sinks without trace. His only method of restoring them is to scroll the line he is on left and right; that brings in fresh stones from the edge of the screen.

He has one advantage over the boot - he can disappear off the edge of the screen and appear on the other side, leaving the boot trapped.

What appears to be a simple game can easily become very difficult, requiring plenty of thought, and all the time the seconds are ticking away. The game can be obtained from Lyndenhurst, 38 Ashley Road, London N19 3AF.
