Edison,
the kinetic android,
leads a frustrating life.
All he wants to do is build his
circuit boards and go with the
flow. But things keep getting
in the way.
Nohms a negative infl uence
—bug him constantly. Flash, the
lightning dolt, disconnects every-
thing in his path.
And the cunning Killerwatt is
out to fry poor Edison's brains.
You'll get a charge out of this
one. And a few jolts, too!
(Requires 32K memory. Suggested retail $29.95)
Con-
necting the dots
on our colorful grid should
be easy, right?
Wrong. Because the bullies
are in hot pursuit!
Squashf ace, Thuggy, Muggy
and Moose are their names. And
you are their game. And what's
more, they're faster than you are.
But you're smarter. And you
control the stun button.
So keep your eyes peeled for
the mysterious question mark
and don't slow down at corners!
