|Review By Your Commodore (July 1986)|
|Charlie is a trainee accountant who sneaks into the chip manufacturing plant to try his skill at production. Bugs, sparks and the odd spanner in the works run rampant at night and it is up to you to guide the lad around the screen to produce his microchips.|
This is a platform game and a conveyor belt runs along the bottom of the screen. On the conveyor are sockets and Charlie has to drop the chips from level to level so that they fall into an empty space on the belt. When all of the places on the belt are filled he must climb to the switch at the top of the screen to wind the belt on.
The nasties also wander around the platforms and contact with them can be fatal.
Completely filling a conveyor belt allows Charlie to move on to a new production line and further problems.
The graphics could be more imaginative but this does not affect the game too much. The action is certainly frantic and the planning of your next move is frequently thwarted by the numerous nasties. Simple but effective.
