***  by Reinen. Comment: "Nice and easy game - a single coin in this machine would last you a while, although the gameplay was a little on the bizarre side. Guide a kid in some weird costume, throwing axes at snails? I`d like to see the programmer explain that one to his psych." 2003-02-18 09:17:12Z
