Notes

Published on the PCW Games Collection from Personal Computer World magazine.

These compilation cassettes were published by Century Communications Ltd.

The PCW book accompanying the PCW Games Collection contained the following description:

You are Sam. Together with your girlfriend, Ethel, you have been trying to steal the ill-qotten gold of an evil old witch, mad Mabel. You've both been nabbed by Mabel and Ethel is held in a cage ready for supper - Mabel's!

To provide sport to help her appetite, Mabel has trapped you between two walls and is launching exploding demon-birds at you. You do, however, have a hat with magical properties which will neutralize the birds if you can catch them in it before they land.

For every six birds caught Mabel will give you a bag of gold. You need three bags to win the game and save Ethel.

Every time you miss a bird, Mabel's pet zombie will gradually tunnel under a wall and eventually get you! If you are hit by a bird you will be instantly vaporized. You have only three lives! Be careful, because if Mabel thinks you're doing too well you'll have to dodge a few lightning bolts as well!

Your controls for moving about to catch the birds are:

Z = Left
X = Riqht
