Flimbos Quest STORY / GAMEPLAY
A mad scientist called Fransz Dandruff has created a machine that can draw for him the life energy of every living thing, thus extending his own life infinitely. To provide this energy, Dandruff kidnaps Pearly, a beauty queen from Dewdropland. Her boyfriend Flimbo sets off to save her. You control Flimbo through seven distinct levels, collecting scrolls for the wizard Dazz Bazian, to help him create a spell that will send Flimbo to the next level. The levels are free to roam and some exploration is necessary to find the scrolls from enemies dotted around the lair, as well as to reveal other secrets, such as banks and various power-ups. The power-ups can be bought in Dazz's shops, along with individual letters or complete words of a code.

GRAPHICS / SOUND
The C64 version uses nice, colorful graphics, smooth sprite animation and an impressive parallax scrolling in the background scenery (missing on the CPC). On the downside, the foreground scenery is almost identical to the background, making the game difficult to avoid the incoming enemies or even jump onto platforms! The C64/128 versions sound is brilliant, featuring an excellent intro theme (taken from the original, Amiga/ST version) as well as a nice in-game score along with an array of nicely done sound effects.
