Game Covers - Icicle Works (Commodore 16 and Plus 4)

ICICLE WORKS is a multi-screen game of snowballs, gift wrapped presents, polar bears and penguins.

Santa has returned from holiday to find that his presents have been scattered over the polar cap and are buried in the snow.  Your task is to help Santa dig his way through the snow, collecting as many gift wrapped presents as are required to complete the toy in each scene.

Life in the north, however, is fraught with many perils and poor Santa must be very careful not to get caught under an avalanche of his own creation.  His life is further endangered bu the many bad tempered polar bears and penguins which run up and down the passages Santa has dug.

Christmas is not as far away as you may think and Santa faces a horrible fate if he cannot complete the toy and escape to a new task before the time runs out.

Game Covers - Purple Turtles (Commodore 16 and Plus 4)

Turtle Bobbing is a sport which can only be carried out with the very rare Purple Turtle.  The fabled Purple Turtles rise and fall as the whim takes them and due to their passive nature and unusual buoyancy they can be used as stepping stones.  A game for the young at heart and for people who have tired of alien bashing.

Game Covers - Scooby Doo (Commodore 16 and Plus 4)

In The Castle Mystery.

The Mystery Machine arrives at the ruined castle, and the gang climb out, ready to explore.  Suddenly, Velma, Shaggy, Daphne and Fred are seized by large hands and a chorus of voices cry out "Our experiments are almost complete. Nothing can stop us now!"  Though frightened, Scooby decides to look for his friends, but soon has the feeling that he is not alone.  Ghosts and demons of the strangest kind gather on all sides and appear out of doorways, intent to stop him freeing the rest of the gang.

Can you, as Scooby Doo, fight your way through the mad scientists' henchmen to rescue your friends, then seek out their captors?  Perhaps the trail of Scooby Snax may help you in your search.
