Aim of the game

Having escaped from prison to a hideaway in Gibraltar, Monty Mole finds that he's not safe from the attentions of Intermole, the international crime fighting organisation. Monty's only hope of salvation lies on a Greek island, but only if he can acquire sufficient monies to buy it. Before he can do that, Monty must pass through Europe, performing at least one task in each of its nations.

Game play

There are 80 platform-filled screens in all. As you explore them, you will come across items to help him to complete the required tasks. Such items must be picked up (by walking into them) and taken to the right place before they can be used. Up to four items can be carried at any one time, with these displayed at the bottom left of the screen. Money is gathered in the form of Eurocheques, or earned whenever Monty completes a task. Points are also scored by picking up objects. Your account is shown at the bottom of the screen. Air tickets let you into the Air Terminals. From here you can fly to another location and straight into a dog-fight with the Intermole air force. Further points can be gained by shearing off the enemy planes' tailplanes. Only when every task in the game has been completed, every Eurocheque collected and Monty's Swiss bank account number acquired, can the money be called safe and the island purchased.


"A fine continuation of the long-standing Monty Mole theme."

Quite a nice game, but rather simple by modern standards.
