I f you thought Trom might bear some resemblance to the film of almost the same name, forget it.
The cassette insert has a confusing tale of collecting bits while avoiding pixels and nibbles. There are some bouncing bytes knocking around as well.
It seems dK'Tronics could not think of any remotely credible background for what proves to be a thoroughly uninspiring game.
Briefly, you have to run round the screen picking up red blobs - 'bits' - and carry them to a fiery furnace. The 'bytes' look like purple bars and rebound from the walls. Other features try to track you down and shoot you.
The game is easy to play and there are three levels of difficulty. Successive screens appear to produce only more of the same and the only positive feature is a facility for choosing which keys you use for the controls. Unbelievably, there appears to be no provision for the use of a joystick.
dK'Tronics has produced many good games in the past. Trom is certainly not one of them.
