Betty Boo: 'Doin' the Doo'
Game: Magic Pockets

Another slice of gaming brilliance from the Bitmap Brothers and featuring Betty Boo before the lip sync controversy and her awful, collaboration with Alex from Blur. Apart from being a jolly good little bit of 16 Bit platforming action, Trivia Fans will nod sagely at being reminded of the fact that Magic Pockets featured on UK Saturday Morning kid's show 'Going Live' in a bizarre pre-internet gaming experience, which involved phoning up the show and then shouting commands to move your character over national TV. Simpler, Happier Times.
