Aim of the game

For some inexplicable reason, a flea called Bugaboo has fallen into a deep gorge, and it's your job to get him out as quickly as possible.

Game play

The controls are incredibly simple - hop left or hop right. At the botton of the screen is a bar indicating the strength of the hop. When you press the desired direction key, Bugaboo turns in that direction. You release the key when you have got what you think is the right strength of jump. A hazard you will have to face is a yellow dragon which, after a few minutes, enters and eats you. You can however start again immediately but the dragon will appear at shorter and shorter intervals, giving you less and less time.


"It's a delight to play and mind-blowingly frustrating."

Simple, rather garish graphics and simple gameplay - despite this, BUGABOO is actually rather good. It's another one of those 8-bit classics with an indefinable appeal...
