Thursday Quiz - Spot the game being reviewed.

Post by PeterJ » Thu Mar 08, 2018 10:46 am

This is my first attempt at a quiz so please treat me gently. It certainly won't by up to the standards set by @Rorthron

The 5 quotes below are from software reviews in 'Your Spectrum' magazine. You simply need to identify the game. Maximum of two correct answers per user please.

If this catches on, I will make a it longer next time.

1. Trapped inside a 3D maze, trying to gather up gold blocks

2. You control a little man who zooms around the castle

3. The players job is to help him negotiate his way across a busy main road, and into he nearest pub

4. You are a fearless archaeologist, and must work your way around the pyramid

5. You're on an expedition to the ancient Pharaoh's tomb

I thought 1 might be 3D Maze of Gold, but that's a bit too obvious!

IS number 3 describing the screen from A Day in the Life where you need to get Clive into the Groovy Belle pub?

No. Sorry. I think I may have made this to difficult. Think of 3.14 and that should give you a clue.
