How To Be A Complete Bastard

'How To Be A Rich Bastard', more like. Do you know how many copies of that book Ade sold? Enough to buy him a residency on the golf course with Tarby and Co, I'd say, but never mind. This Virgin game, originally reviewed in November 87, is based fair and square on Ade Edmondson's vomit-stained bestseller, and it certainly captures the flavour. In a bucket.

You play Ade, wandering around a yuppie house party trying to make yourself as unpopular as you possibly can in the shortest possible time. The screen's split into two floors, with the now standard, left-right-in-out layout, a la People From Sirius and many others. Lots of funny ideas, but the actual gameplay is no more than humdrum, mainly because not a lot seems to be happening and what does happen is rather slow. For fans only.
