"Climb the beanstalk, find the keys and rescue your hearthrob Jill and you will have two minutes to reach freedom. A great arcade adventure, 45 screens of action by John Niblett."

The story so far...your job is to rescue Jill by finding the key to her cell. You will have to explore the beanstalk, the castle and the gardens. Of course, the paths are closed by doors and only the right colour keys will open the way through. You'll have to collect all the fruits and bits and pieces on the way and finally when you've found the key you will wake up that old meany, the Giant. He's down on you like a ton of bricks and you will only have two minutes to race back through the castle and out to freedom. Some of the bits and pieces are helpful and others are best avoided...the best of luck and don't get in front of the lorry...The author of this brill game is John Niblett so don't blame us, it's his fault!!
