Eskimo skates on thin ice
ESKIMO EDDIE from Ocean Software invites the player into the Arctic. Eddie must battle against Growler the polar bear in his attempts to rescue Percy the penguin. On the second screen the penguin must defend itself against deadly snowbugs by pushing ice-blocks into their paths.

That is rather a dramatic description of the action on-screen which gives the impression of a frosty Frogger. In the first part the player must steer Eddie up the screen by keys or a variety of joysticks. Two polar bear figures and three jagged icefloes march across and Eddie will be killed if he makes contact with them.

After a few tries the graphics display is not very gripping or colourful. The repetitive quality of the tasks will not appeal to those fond of complex games, though it is possible younger children will enjoy it for a time. All in all, a disappointing production from Ocean Software.
