Colourful scenes and excellent graphics ensure that Potty Percy is not just another flying pigeon pie in the sky.

Potty Pigeon is a proud papa, but his hungry young brood keep him busy searching for food. There are 11 locations where Percy will find big juicy wriggling worms. His baby feeding missions are hampered by lots of nasties determined to stop Percy including a big fat spider who swings from the tree where the chicks are nesting, a red bird that will steal the worms from Percy, giant killer Venus snapdragons, speeding traffic, helicopters and many more. Percy is also in constant danger of flying out of energy, which can only be replenished by resting on the ground or eating the mayflies.

Percy is no ordinary pigeon. He can perform counter-attack raids on the enemy by dropping deadly exploding eggs, which will score him points.

Progress is slower on the first level, but percy vere! There are a total of five levels and as you score points you will move into the higher levels, of which they are five.

The game is a delight to play. Although not as graphically complex as other games it will hold your interest with its gently addictive quality. Beware though, this game is not for crawlers.

Gilbert Factor: 6/10
