Diamond mines are unlikely to become a gamester's best friend. This game has an absurdly simple task to match the similarly simple sound and graphics, ft will satisfy only those who've never soon computer game or those who've seen so many that their sense of discrimination has become totally befuddled.
You stand at the top of a maze layout con trolling a p:pe which gobbles the diamonds (dots). Rushing around in the maze are hostile aliens (purple blobs) You can suck them up the end of the pipe but if they touch any other point you lose a life. Controls are left/right, up/down and retract which freezes the action and allows you to get back and gobble some aliens.
The whole the only interest of the game is in learning to press retract rather Ilian a control key going back on yourself loses a life. So you can have some fun for about 10 minutes. Once you've learned to control yourself the game is a bore, despite its 10 mazes.
