"Simple in concept, hellishly difficult to play and a challenge to anyone who likes to test their speed of thought as well as their speed of reaction."
A&B Computing

"If you like games which require quick-thinking rather than a quick fire-button finger, then this game is probably for you."
Acorn User

"The keys are easy to handle and are user-definable."
Electron User

"Very refreshing... It taxes mental and physical agility - quite a change from the usual mindless keyboard bashing."
The Micro User


The Scenario : A huge 64 storey automated industrial plant used for the production and storage of deadly Confuzion Bombs versus a highly intelligent and quick thinking mind (yours!)!

The Objective : To destroy the complete complex by eliminating the entire explosive stock pile.

Confuzion : Its features include Bonus levels, Extra Sparks, Skill Stepping, Speed Spark and Multiplayer options. A totally addictive and frustrating arcade game using a fresh and original playing concept. The Fuzion Of Mind And Machine.


You are in a huge 64 storey automated industrial plant that is used for the production and storage of deadly Confuzion Bombs. This place is considered to be one of the greatest threats to mankind. Having gained access to the computer control room - your mission now is to explode every bomb on all of the factory's 64 levels.

Factory Information

  Section 1   Level 1 - 8
  Section 2   Level 9 - 16
  Section 3   Level 17 - 24
  Section 4   Level 25 - 32
  Section 5   Level 33 - 40
  Section 6   Level 41 - 48

You have authorised access to the first level in each of the first six sections (1, 9, 17, 25, 33 & 41).

The assembly lines consist of sliding pallets which were used for the movement of components. The pallets are left covered in sections of fuzewire.


To destroy the complete complex by eliminating the entire explosive stockpile.

Skill Stepping

This feature allows you to continue from the last level completed in your previous game provided you answer Yes to the New Game prompt.

During Play

Move pallets into the adjacent space using up, down, left and right controls. Lay a fuze from the spark to the bombs. The spark will burn along the fuze and blow up the bombs.

All the bombs should be destroyed before the timer fuze burns out - watch this at the top of the screen. Look out for warning signs when the timer is low. Running into dead ends, solid blocks or off the edge of a pallet will reduce the life of your spark.



Level 1 is the ideal floor for becoming familiar with the controls.


You begin with five sparks and will be awarded a Bonus spark after every fourth level.

Bonus Levels

You have no information on bonus levels other than that they occur at every 8th level!?!

Sprinkler System

In certain areas, the factory sprinkler system releases water droplets which will extinguish the spark if they collide with it.

Two Player Consideration Option

Whilst competing with opponents who can amass six bonus sparks in the time it takes to lose all yours, Confuzion allows you to restart your game without having to wait for the other player to finish.

Planning Ahead

While a bomb is exploding advanced players can program a route into a buffer which will be executed at high speed on completion of the explosion.


If you find difficultly in controlling the pallet movement - try defining the keys for the opposite directions. i.e. down as up and up as down. This has the effect of controlling the space, rather than the pallets.
