It appears that Wally Week has passed on nearly all
his attributes from Pyjamarama to his son in
his new game. The game follows the same pattern of true
aardvarking with similar puzzles.
action takes place in a department store where wee Herbie
has got separated from his parents (they play a supporting,
not say 'supportive', role in the Lost and Found department).
In order to get reunited he has to find the l'n'f dept
and get them down from the top of an escalator. This
isn't as simple as it sounds, because he's first got
to solve puzzles in order to get the right equipment.
store has four floors, each with several rooms, and
these are connected by a lift and sometimes a flight
of stairs as well. In every room there is an object
but you can only carry two at a time. These are what
you use to crack puzzles.
can you do with a chocolate ten pence
and a tennis racquet apart from get sticky
fingers and strain spaghetti?

are rooms that take the form of simple arcade games,
like Breakout, Space Invaders and a Duck Shoot. In these

can jump up and walk down stairs while if he tries to
get a lift on the wrong floor he'll be in for a long
drop. If he hits one of the moving nasties that abound
on most screens it will make him cry. If he cries too
much he'll fill up a large teardrop and have a cloud
rain on his head as he loses a life.
can stem the tide of Herbert's tears with goodies like
cakes, lollies and sweets that are strewn around. If
you are careless enough to lose all Herbert's three
lives you are given a score in jelly babies (his favourite
treat), the better you've done the more you get.
