It's everybody's favourite second rate Flintstones in Space, the Jetsons, in Hi-Tec's latest Hanna Barbera licence, Jetsons - the computer game. This game is born of a world inhabited by crap graphics, poo-poor payability and misspellings of 'computer" on disk labels
The first level is a boring walk-em-up in which George has to collect three items, at least one of which you will never find even if you play until you've got a big white beard growing down to the floor (women too). You fall through the floor a lot. Oh, and there's some chutes to shoot up.
The second level is a 2D shoot-em-up section, and there's three further levels. Unfortunately, no-one's ever seen them. The first level is so tiresome and tricky, you will be driven to despair. Lefs ask some of Future Publishing's most experienced games players how they fared:
"It's so crap. No-one in the office got past the first level." Linda Barker, Your Sinclair
"Well, I think - zzzzzzzzzzz..." Stuart Campbell, Amiga Power
"Half an hour with this game is enough to put you off the nauseating bunch of space age gets for life." Neil West, Sega Power.
Imagine walking through the same ten badly-drawn rooms over and over again for the rest of your life. Now you too can experience the pain and suffering of purgatory, without even leaving your bedroom.
There was a rumour buzzing round the office here last week (we think James Leach started it) that the Hi-Tec staff were being held hostage in their Sheffield office by a mad gunman. In the event, this rumour turned out to be false. The other rumour currently buzzing round the office, that Jetsons is a dreadful game on any machine, is a whole lot more believable. If this was a Eurovision Song Contest entry, it would get "nul points" (largely because ifs not a song, but you know what we mean).

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
