Wriggler

(Blaby Computer Games, 1985)

The garden is infested with mushrooms, and you must use your laser base to kill them and also shoot the other bugs that inhabit the garden, such as flies, snails and spiders. The main aim of the game, though, is to shoot the caterpillars that move from left to right and downwards as well. When you shoot all the segments of the caterpillar, you go to the next level. This is a pretty good version of the classic arcade game Centipede; the graphics are very similar to the original, and change colour as you progress through the game, and it’s fast as well, without being overly difficult.

It’s that time again – the worm marathon, where two worms race each other over a gruelling course. The first section is in a garden with ants and spiders to contend with, before moving underground into hell (yes, really!) where, among other things, there are acid drops, moving bridges and red-hot pokers, with the last section featuring a lift where each floor has a different theme. A horrible colour scheme says it all for the graphics (which are rather simplistic), and the music is grating, too. The game is nice at first, but the final section is by far the most annoying, and you often fall through the lift and lose most of your three lives.

Wulf Pack

(Blue Ribbon, 1988)

The Nazi U-boats are sinking Britain’s convoys of merchant ships faster than Britain can cope. You’ve been assigned by the Royal Navy as a sub hunter and have to trawl the Atlantic, looking for the U-boats using sonar and then destroying them with your supply of depth charges. When you run out, you’ll need to sail to a port and dock by guiding your ship through the harbour, which isn’t easy. In fact, it’s probably the most challenging part of the game, for the rest of it is rather boring and just involves randomly moving your ship about the screen. The graphics aren’t great and the music is very irritating.

Does anyone remember Hulk Hogan or the Ultimate Warrior? Does WWF (nowadays known as WWE) ring a bell to you? This game takes those fake combats that seemed to have no rules at all to your CPC. The graphics are quite good, although they lack variety. Your character performs a wide range of movements both fast and smoothly, and the computer controlled opponents are quite smart. WWF Wrestlemania is a very enjoyable game, regardless of whether you are playing against the computer or a friend. The only drawback is that it has some joystick-breaking movements (a bit like the Daley Thompson games), which I find quite bothersome.
