Skool Daze heralded a pleasing and surprise departure from the mainstream two dimensional platform based games of the period. 

Watch the fun unfold! Steven Howlett

The object of this fun, innovative game is to control a schoolboy named Eric and steal your end of term report card out of the headmaster's safe.

You achieve this completing various tasks throughout the school. If Eric is discovered misbehaving or even out of class then one of four teachers will give chase and upon being caught will issue him with lines.

When Eric receives a total of 10,000 lines or more he's unceremoniously expelled from school and the game is over. As well has completing the challenging tasks, Eric will also have to work smart to ensure that he doesn't inadvertently receive lines for things that are not his own doing.

Examples of these are being the nearest to a teacher who has just been hit by a projectile fired by someone else and sitting on the floor having just being knocked down by another pupil.

One of the fun features of Skool Daze is the ability to rename some of the characters to reflect the pupils and teachers in your own real life school. The game has a bright, bold feeling of an animated comic strip and when teachers and pupils speak their words appear in speech bubbles. If all this colourful mayhem sounds like hard work, there's even an entertaining demo mode where you can sit back and watch the fun unfold.
