Published on the Best of PCW software for the BBC Micro compilation from Personal Computer World magazine.

These compilation cassettes were published by Century Communications Ltd.

The PCW book accompanying the Best of PCW Software For The BBC Micro cassette contained the following description:

A light cycle by any other name would shine as bright!
     This fast-moving game casts you in the role of avenging
antibody, protecting your pound of flesh from an invading virus.
     Both you and the virus move around the screen leaving trails,
and you must use the cursor keys to trap the virus without running
into anything yourself, but beware, if you succeed then you are
faced with two viruses.
