It is a bird? Is it a plane? It is Superman? No, it's Brok the Brave doing the old two footed jumps and flying through the air as if he was on sky hooks.

You play the unfortunate Brok the Brave, who, apart from his ability to jump proportionally higher than a flea, hasn't got a lot going for him. For poor old Brok was trapped within the high security planet Hawkland until some bright spark offered him this job. So off he was packed to Earth where his task was to free the planet from the terrors of Dracula. A strange mixmatch, methinks. Still, well give them the benefit of the doubt, huh?

Okay, so you've got to find three keys while avoiding the nasties. Hang on, hang on, before you go any further - haven't we covered this plot somewhere else? You also get the standard bonus points for collecting anything and everything that flashes. Corny, I know, but if it flashes the masses know what's going on.

Well, compared to other platform games it matches up quite well, and it's difficult enough to keep interest going. The only thing it really lacks is any new creative ideas.
