    I used to play this a lot in my mother's office, wow I can't believe I found it after 20 years. I love this game I really had lots of fun with it wow the memories.

    A very neat little puzzle game. I first enjoyed it where it began life, on the Atari Lynx hand-held. The video shown is for the DOS version, and while graphically more faithful to the Lynx original, the PC speaker really mangles the music! The Windows version doesn't have the smooth scrolling of either version, having a 'tile-based' scroll, effectively jumping a tile at a time. A bit off-putting if you're used to the original, but it doesn't affect the gameplay, the puzzles are still puzzling.
