Cookie, ZX Spectrum

Another of Ultimate‘s early ZX Spectrum classics, Cookie – from 1983 – is a simple arcade-style action game where you are a little chef sprite shooting bags of flour at ingredients to knock them into a mixing bowl.

Each wave of ingredients from the pantry has different movement patterns, so shooting them (and avoiding them – one touch will kill) varies from level to level.

There are also baddies throwing bad things into the mix (like nuts and bolts), which you have to try to knock away and not allow into the bowl (otherwise the number of required ingredients goes up).

Cookie is cute, colourful and fun. If there was only one thing wrong with it: I would have loved to have seen a 48K version (rather than 16K), with a bit more to it.

Still a classic, regardless.
