Boing Zzap Review
• Hi Power, £2.99
Phweeesh! is the planet of platforms where Phil phinally phlipped! You see Boris, the Big Ball of Bollardia, is trapped there and must be guided across 124 zones of platforms and nasties.
He is armed only with a dozen or so bullets and must rely on his 'amazing bouncing powers' to survive. Sadly Boris's leaps are pathetically small and their size remains constant. All you can do is move him left or right to help time the jumps. This makes Boing one of the hardest, most irritatingly finicky games we've ever suffered with. While the graphics are okay, with a good variety of whacky aliens from Jaws to swarms of midges, and sound is nice, playability is appalling. A game to be recommended only for those wanting to escape a murder charge by pleading absolute, raving madness.
If you have any idea what should go in this box, please let me know! :)
