Quite and odd little game, this one. You play a manservant in Buck Palace. The occupants (Andy, Fergie, Charles, Di etc.), should you wander into them, will set you off on a task. For instance in the bathroom you'll find Andy in the tub, and he'll ask you to go and get him a boat to play with, so off you trot to find on. And so on.

The selling point of the game is the giant colourful and very humourous graphics: brilliant caricatures of the royal family. However, for me that wasn't enough to make the game particularly unputdownable. Full marks for originality, though.

Re-release/Original score 9
