I don’t have a clue what’s going on here. I might be driving fast down a road, I might be dropping down a well. I don’t care. This game is GLORIOUS (honestly – I love it).

It’s Snake. Or, more accurately, lots of different versions of Snake, across seven levels. And – brace yourself – for a Cassette 50 game, it’s pretty good. There. I said it.

(The Commodore 64 Ivasive Action was good too, remember)

Ivasive Action (ZX81)

Got new trainers. I’m going for a run. They’ll make me go faster. Watch me run. Flying fast down the street. Nothing can stop me. Wooooo!

Except, of course, something did stop me.

I managed to get a restraining order out against those stupid Psions, and they had to move on. Last I heard they were bothering old Mrs Berry down the road, though while most of them were shuffling around outside her house one of them moved in, and old Mr Berry has had to go and live with his sister while his wife has it away with a space alien.

Anyway, they knew I’d got new trainers so they left all their rubbish lying around while I went for a joyful run. Now I’ve only gone and tripped over some of it and hurt my knee.

Bastards. I HATE THE PSIONS.

Yeah, Ivasive Action. Not Evasive Action like you might think it should be spelt. IVASIVE. You’re a plane. Your plane shouldn’t fly into what looks like the detonator for some dynamite. Quite why you would want to fly a plane through something lik…

You’re a plane. Your plane shouldn’t fly into what looks like the detonator for some dynamite. Quite why you would want to fly a plane through something like that escapes me, and it’s certainly putting any passengers and cabin crew in danger. Maybe it’s a very budget Ryanair flight?

But is it exciting?

Well, no.

Not one bit.
