Tubaruba - a name no doubt derived from the authors name, Tooba Zaidi - is a game in which you play the part of a mischievous schoolboy nicknamed Tubaruba. Being a real tearaway you are caught breaking a window and must collect the £50 needed to pay for its repair. Your disbelieving headmaster is so sure you won't achieve this that he has staked his Ferrari on it. (Who said teachers are underpaid?).

The whole game takes place in and around the school building where scattered money is to be found (I wish my school had been like that). There must have been some pretty novel experiments in the school biology labs because the building is also inhabited by the weirdest collection of monsters you could ever hope not to meet.

Tubaruba is reminiscent of the Wally series - Pyjamarama, Everyone's a Wally, and so on - but don't get the idea that it's an inferior copy. As well as walking about at floor level a jetpack enables you to reach the higher levels of a screen.

You can defend yourself by shooting elasticated chewing gum at your adversaries. How long you manage to last depends on whether you manage to keep your energy level out of the red. Bumping into the baddies or even shooting at them will deplete your energy while picking up any of the money or one of the food items will boost it.

Some screens can have eight or more sprites pitted against you, each of which is able to shoot small bullets travelling at unpredictable speeds. Whenever you are hit you explode in a most satisfying manner while your energy level once again takes a turn for the worse. Just to be topical - even though it was written last year - the game includes a Sinclair C5, a ride in which helps to add to your energy while carrying you across to a new screen.

As well as just walking/flying from screen to screen and the C5, there are also things looking a bit like kitchen cupboards which, when you bump into them, whisk you randomly off to some other screen.

The locations in the game are many and varied and cover most of the likely rooms in a school including laboratories and even lavatories. If you do amass the £50 necessary to pay for the window, you get to drive the Ferrari in a similar way to the C5, though I'd guess it's a bit quicker.
The game can be played with either a joystick or on the keyboard and will work on all CPC machines.

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.
