Thing on a Spring is probably my number one fave C64
game of all time. So what happened to the sequel? It's a
tad difficult to play and the controls are frustrating
to say the least - not to mention
that Thing looks completely different and resembles a
circus clown. I purchased the original of this game when
it first came back, and after playing it once, I would
only ever load it up to play Ben's cool music :) The sad
thing is, Jason Perkins is one of my all-time favourite
Commodore 64 coders, and it was the influence of other
members of the coding team that watered this game down.

SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
Nothing apart from an ending screen
that says: "WELL DONE! FROM JASON AND MARK. YOU HAVE
COMPLETED THING BOUNCES BACK." There is also a little
ending ditty from Ben Daglish.
FINAL SAY: A total letdown.
