The first game on a Cassette 50 – unless you’re the Hipster that is the ZX Spectrum – is always Maze Eater…

And this is a particularly shit version of it.

Well this is factually incorrect. I’m not eating any mazes here. I’m eating pills. Tasty, tasty pills. Mmmmmm. No wonder I’m seeing ghosts and imagining that I am a giant head with only a mouth and no body.

And we’re back with another Cassette 50. And another version of Maze Eater. And as usual, it’s a load of old shit. Why am I putting myself through this? I can’t stop. Help me. Please help me.

You know the drill by now with Maze Eater. Terrible Pac-man clone. Slow. Rubbish AI. Blah blah blah. Go watch:

Maze Eater. Back where it all begins.

MARVEL! at the sound of me mashing the keys to try and work out what does what.

SWOON! At my colleague in the office next door listening to “Stuck in the Middle With You” by Steelers Wheel.

LAUGH! At the utter pointlessness of the game.

WONDER! Why there are no ghosts in this very poor Pacman clone.
