and watch him grow as he finds his food.
Steer Mr. Platfoot through this platform game, avoiding the spooky

Your task is to clear away all the coloured balls (or as many as
you can) in each 60 second round. The catch is, just as you think
you're on top of everything, the board tilts round and everything
changes. The more space is left at the end of each round, the bigger

Guide a twirling stick through a series of mazes. Timing is everything
as you negotiate your way round tight corners.
A whole host of different driving challenges, and a visit to the
pits between each round to get your car suitably equipped with the
right set of tyres for the next one. The next best thing to being
in a formula one pit crew. Well, almost.
Steer your space ship through the asteroid field, avoiding asteroids
and blowing up enemy mines.
Shoot the smiley faces as they appear around the office. Get your
quota of targets on each level to progress.
Save your planet by carrying out a number of take-off-and-land missions.
Nice cartoon graphics, and gameplay that is harder than you think

falling apples in a bucket to score points. That's it really. As
the apples come down, the scores go up.
