    ARCADE ADVENTURES - For BBC computers.

    SPACE INVADERS: Use 2 or 3 switches to move and blast the advancing army of invaders.

    SHOCKER: Catch the deadly electic eel by dragging your net across the pool.

    TOBOGGAN RUN: Slide your toboggan through the slalom, avoiding the icy patches and stray dogs.
