Phew! After an hour of messing about twiddling knobs we finally managed to get this one up and running on our trusty old Speccy! And unfortunately it wasn't worth it! SCS's lousy gameplay has been heavily disguised by pretty graphics and a beefy front-end, but Player's can't pull the wool over Speccy gamesplayer's eyes that easily.

The construction system on the reverse side of the cassette is actually a dam sight better than the game itself and more fun to play around with too! Though the demo game plays rather like a cold, slippery wet fish (it's hard to get hold of) the scrolling is effective. Unfortunately, since any games you construct use the main game to run on, even your own designs will be just as unresponsive. Norralorrafun'
