Gregory Loses His Clock

One night, while bubble-headed Gregory slept, an evil force sucked his alarm clock into another dimension. If he's going to wake up in time for school, he'll have to send his dreamy self to find it - and this is where you come in, of course. It's one of those games in which you have to cart objects from location to location, solving puzzles by standing on a hat box here and dropping a cheese sandwich there.

It's a Don Priestly adventure, which like his earlier Popeye, Trap Door and Flunky features huge colourful sprites. More variety makes Gregory Loses His Clock Don's best to date, and even if you didn't spring a tenner for his earlier work, you'd have to be a bit of a stingy bot not to shell out three quid for this 'un.

Spectrum

An entertaining, colourful arcade adventure, difficult enough to keep you going for a month of Sundays.

Amstrad

None of the Spectrum's attribute clash and all of its playability.
