Airwolf this isn't. But it still involves a super-helicopter on a mission to rescue - not scientists or maidens in distress or prisoners of war - but clones. There's a new twist for you.

Unfortunately, the game is pretty uninspiring - even for a budget title. You have to fly your chopper around a cramped screen full of blobby aliens, pick up the clones and land them safely on a series of platforms on the left hand side of the screen.

There are four screens to this game - each with varying difficulty levels - more, nastier, quicker aliens. You can bomb the nasties as you dodge about if you really want to.

Frills like a joystick option, an instruction screens, comprehensive menu screen and a hi-score table don't stop this effort registering a high mark on the old boredometer. Save your two quid and put them towards a full price game!
