Aim of the game

Spiky Harold (any relation to Spiny Norman?) is preparing for hibernation and so must eat as much food as possible before he drops off for the winter.

Game play

Harold has to wander through the 57 chambers below the hedgerow and collect the item of food in each before returning to his home chamber to hibernate. However, there's a variety of nasty creatures and natural hazards to avoid along the way. There are also some useful objects - coins which give him extra lives and wine glasses which make him drunk! He has to complete his task within 24 hours, before the sharp frost that is forecast begins.


"Quite a fun game, for a while at least..."

A simple enough platform game.
