Geoff Capes Strong Man

Muscle straining caper which originally appeared from Martech in 1985, but now turns up again on another new Mastertronic label. It's very much in the early sportsim mould - six events in which Geoff pulls trucks, chops logs, rolls cars and then relaxes with a bit of Sumo wrestling. The skill lies in allocating strength between eight muscle areas, from ankles to shoulders, but there's also some traditional joystick waggling to keep Kempston in business. It's hardly a world-beater, unlike good ol' Geoff, but it hasn't aged too badly and still plays fairly smoothly.
