Overview

Botha peeing on Gorbi (Amstrad CPC)

Spitting Image is Domark's attempt to make a licensed game out of a popular satirical puppet TV series of the same name which aired on the ITV network across the UK and featured puppet caricatures of celebrities prominent during the 1980s and 1990s. The result is a more or less funny fighting game in which the combatants are caricatured world leaders of the late 1980s.

Although nicely packaged and with nicely drawn and animated cartoon-style characters the game lacks in playabilty due to the restrictions of character moves. Programmed by Walking Circles the game was available for most models of popular 8-bit and 16-bit home computers at the time.

Story

The story found in the intro screens and the manual goes like this: "Within the next seven years a world war will take place. A war so great that even the Swiss will get envolved this time. A war so terrible the Italians have already surrendered. One leader will emerge from this war to rule the world. It is your task to stop this leader and SAVE THE WORLD. These are the six challengers for world power...."
