- Young ones, the -

Have you ever seen the young ones? It's a wacky comedy show about four guys living together in an appartment somewhere in England, each of them completely different from each other. You've got a punker, a hippie, a suit and a crazed Cliff Richard fan. This game is based on that show and the aim of the game is to grab all your stuff from the house and get out before the landlord comes to collect the rent.

You can play as each of the four characters and all of them have their objects you have to locate. Some items are simply lying around for you to pick up but you'll have to solve a number of puzzles to get others. These puzzles can be as wacky as the show like using a vacuum cleaner to get a golfball out of the toilet. The whole game is played from a menu structure where you can give commands like move and pick up. You don't have to control the characters because they will walk to the object themselves if you use a command like picking up something.

The graphics and animation are pretty simple but there is a splitscreen view showing two rooms in the house at the same time. This allows you to see what the other characters are doing while you are going about your business. There is a tune that constantly plays during the game but I can't remember if it's the tune from the show. The game is unlike most other adventures and there aren't too many different rooms for you to explore but that doesn't mean it's easy because some of the puzzles are quite obscure. There is replay value because each character has to solve different puzzles but ofcourse when you finish one character the next becomes easier because you know which items you don't need. Fans of the series might have a better time with the game and I found the puzzling quite interesting anyway even though it's been years since I last saw the show. I suggest you check it out for yourself though because this game is rather difficult to judge without playing it.

Overal rating: 6/10

This game was released for two different systems here are some notes:
Amstrad CPC Released in 1986.
The worst of the lot, why they made the graphics monochroom is a mystery.
C64 Released in 1986.
Game has been tested but not completed with CCS64 v2.0 win.
ZX Spectrum Released in 1986.
Game has been tested but not completed with emuZwin v2.5.
There is no music and with fewer colors the graphics are somewhat behind the c64's.
