It was a side-scrolling action/platformer with the unique twist that your character – a crash test dummy – would lose parts of himself if he became damaged. Get nailed enough and you'd soon be hopping along on one leg with no arms. It wasn't a great game, but it was good for a laugh and we hoped to get another laugh with Oxygen Interactive's latest."
