Wanted: Monty Mole

Wanted: Monty Mole

Gremlin Graphics Software, 1984

With a long cold winter and bone chilling Christmas ahead, Monty Mole makes a daring, coal snatching raid to his local South Yorkshire pit. Grabbing a miner's bucket he heads off into the darkness, soon to wish he'd caught a cold instead. Alas there's no turning back. Onward to do battle with flying pickets and mammal eating fish; filling his bucket as he dodges the trundling coal crushers and roaming coal drills; keeping an eye on the constantly disappearing floor.

With his bucket filled, Monty makes his escape, only to surface in Arthur's castle where his way is blocked by a fiery figure seated on a graphite throne. Seizing his only chance of toppling the great man Monty collects the secret ballot papers and vote casting scroll. But Arthur's no fool when it comes to the heavy stuff and his personal bodyguard of super fit pickets and deadly flying hairsprays, put up an almighty struggle with our valiant Mole.
