Description:
Meet Wally Week! Wally works tirelessly in a factory assembly, build all manner of automobiles. Unfortunately he appears to be the only worker, and as such, must collect all the parts of each car and return them to the assembly area.

Equally unfortunate for Wally- he has a time limit for each of the parts that he collects and must return. Once all the parts of the car have been collected and placed in the assembly, the car is complete and Wally must start over and build a new car.

The game was a hit when released and made a name for Wally Week with several other releases under his name such as Pyjamara and Everyones a Wally. The animation is very smooth and the large character and graphics work well. The 'Cuckoo Song' (known as the Laurel & Hardy theme tune) plays in the background and can be switched off if required.

Criticism:
The graphics are large but are animated well and the colours are nicely utilised. The screens are limited however, but this does not become an issue and it only adds to the addictive nature of the game, which would otherwise fail miserably in other games.
