I don’t remember playing this game as a kid. To be honest, it’s not the kind of game that stands out. The aim is to move from city to city across America via train looking for the fuzz-bomb that threatens the country. Once you reach the city that has the bomb, you need to have in your possession 100 crystals – which you can collect or cultivate on your journey.
The final level.
TV’s gone on the blink again!
The End.
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?: Using a few save-states and about 40 minutes of my time. I collected 100 crystals, found the bomb location and touched it.
SO WHAT HAPPENS?: The screen shows a fuzzy strobe effect, you get a bizarre message about Elma Sniddle getting her TV back?!?! and then the game restarts.
Neil: I didn’t expect much – and I didn’t get much either.
FINAL SAY: The game is fun for a few minutes, and then gets very repetitive. Not worth bothering with.

G.E. RATING: 1 / 10
