Who'd have thought that eleven years later at the end of a decade of phenomenal success, Viz would end up trying to flog a mediocre computer game in a desperate bid to make a few extra bob. Viz has been labelled the publishing success story of the century. From its humble roots the magazine has grown to become Britain's fourth best selling periodical, with sales of each issue well in excess of 1,100,000 copies. It's characters have become household names. Johnny Fartpants has pumped himself into the annals of comic book history. Buster Gonad's testicles have been preserved in a pickle jar of posterity. Billy the Fish and his Fulchester United team mates have pulled record-breaking TV audiences in their own Channel 4 series. And Roger Mellie has said "Bollocks" over and over again. Best selling Viz titles such as 'The Spunky Parts' and 'The Dog's Bollocks' have stormed the book chart. And with growing sales of T-shirts, boxer shorts, alarm clocks, calendars, post cards and various other rubbish, Viz has become a multi-million pound industry in its own right. But for the four full-time creators of Viz, Chris and Simon Donald, Graham Dury and Simon Thorp, the story still seemed incomplete. There was something missing. It was as if one great mountain remained unconquered. One precious jewel was missing from their crown. But now that missing gem has been put into place, and the picture is finally complete. And this is it. A computer game of breathtaking mediocrity. If you like computer games, you'll LOVE this one. Because it's just like all the rest. So lock yourself in your bedroom, plug in your computer, and shove this poxy little cassette or whatever you call it in the hole. Your glasses will steam up with excitement as all your favourite Viz characters scurry forth across the screen. Your square eyes will boggle in amazement as these razor sharp images spring to life as you have never seen them before. But seriously, computers are all well and good, but have you never considered taking up some kind of healthy outdoor pursuit? Something like football or cycling ... _____________________________________________________________________________ | | | LOADING INSTRUCTIONS | |_____________________________________________________________________________| First of all, take your flopping thing, disc or tape or cassette or CD or whatever you call it out of the box, and insert it in your computer.

Others to look out for will include the Fat Slags, Mrs Brady, The Parkie, Spoilt Bastard, Aldridge Prior, Bertie Blunt, Finbarr Saunders and Sid the sexist. The race will of course be covered by FTV's own Roger Mellie. The game begins in the changing room where you choose your character using the joystick. Press 'FIRE' to select the character of your choice. The race takes place over five sections, Country, Town, Building Site, Beach and Disco. The object is to win all five sections. Should you lose one, you have to do it again. If your character falls over, off a cliff, or off the screen, he must wait for a short while before returning to the race. For every fall he receives a shame token. Three of these and he's out of the game. Lane discipline will be maintained by referee, Rodney Rix, who will throw bricks at anyone leaving their lane. Each of the three characters has his own special powers to help him complete the course, and each contestant has two bonus levels on which they can gain tokens for use later. _____________________________________________________________________________ | | | JOHNNY | | FARTPANTS | |_____________________________________________________________________________| Probably the most notorious Viz character of all, Johnny owes his success to a windy bottom. Indeed his pumping pranks have become legend, while his underpants have become brown and dirty. Anyway, with his diet of pickled eggs, Johnny will try to win the race using chuff power. Hold down 'FIRE' button for about one second, release, and press again to unleash Johnny's Super Power - a massive curry-induced 'Mega Pump'. Press 'FIRE' once and Johnny releases a bottom burp which propels him forwards, and over obstacles. FIRST BONUS LEVEL Waggle your joystick and Johnny will use his special anal inflation technique to blow up balloons. (But don't over-fart it, or the balloon - and your bonus - will blow away) SECOND BONUS LEVEL By wiggling the joystick, Johnny is pump-propelled up the special farting scale winning tokens as he goes. _____________________________________________________________________________ | | | BUSTER | | GONAD | |_____________________________________________________________________________| Regular readers of Viz will have guessed how Buster progresses through the game. He uses Plum Power, bouncing along astride his massive nuts. Press 'FIRE' and exchange a token for one Buster Ball Bounce. Or use Buster's special powers - hold down the 'FIRE' button for about a second, release it and press it again and Buster carts his bollocks along in a wheelbarrow for extra speed. BONUS LEVEL ONE Buster gains power tokens by Pancake Flattening, using his bulbous balls to flatten lumps of dough produced by a pancake machine. Just wiggle the joystick and Buster drops his plums (but make sure the pancake is flat, or it doesn't count). BONUS LEVEL TWO Wiggle the joystick and Buster bounces higher and higher. The higher he goes, the more his scrotes ache, but the more tokens you gain. _____________________________________________________________________________ | | | BIFFA | | BACON | |_____________________________________________________________________________| Biffa's abbrasive no-nonense style makes him a favourite to win the race. Indeed, his face-punching, teeth-kicking antics have established young Biffa as a firm favourite among less intelligent Viz readers. Biffa bashes his way through the many obstacles using punch power. Press 'FIRE' and Biffa exchanges power tokens for bunches of five, walloping all and sundry out of the way. For special power hold down the 'FIRE' button for about one second, release and press it again and Biffa becomes convinced that someone has SPILLED HIS PINT! Needless to say he immediately goes into an uncontrolled fighting frenzy. BONUS LEVEL ONE 'Pint Drinking' is the means by which Biffa accumulates his power. Wiggle the joystick and Biffa will drink a pint. BONUS LEVEL TWO Bricks rain down on Biffa. Move the joystick up to BUTT them, right to PUNCH them or down to KICK them, thus obtaining tokens. _____________________________________________________________________________ | | | KEY CONTROLS | |_____________________________________________________________________________| Amiga and ST versjons are joystick only.
