Description Edit | History

"Bugaboo (The Flea), originally released in Spain as La Pulga, is a computer game released in 1983 for the Sinclair Spectrum, Commodore 64 and MSX. It was the first computer game ever made in Spain. It was ported to the Amstrad CPC under the name Roland in the Caves, to exploit the CPC's recurring Roland character. A second part was released in Spain by Opera Soft under the title Poogaboo, made by the same authors of the first part.

The game begins with an animation depicting Bugaboo, a small, yellow creature with two extremely long legs, jumping around on a colourful planet before accidentally falling through a crack in the planet's surface and falling to the bottom of a cavern.

The player must control Bugaboo and guide him back to the top of the cavern, and out to the safety of the planet's surface.

There are only two control keys: left and right. When a key is held down a gauge at the bottom of the screen begins to fill up. When the key is released, Bugaboo will jump in that direction, with the strength of the jump being determined by how long the key was held down. The cavern is made up of various rocky ledges which Bugaboo may land on; however he can only stand on a flat area and, if a jump is mistimed, Bugaboo may end up on an angled area of rock, or miss the ledge altogether, which will cause him to fall straight down, landing on whatever is below.

Bugaboo may fall from any distance without dying. The only way for the player to lose a life is for Bugaboo to make contact with the large, yellow dragon which appears periodically. Bugaboo can escape the dragon by carefully leaping away, or by taking refuge inside one of the smaller caverns that are located around the play area"

More Information Edit | History

From the Amstrad version - Roland in the Caves:

You are far ahead in time, the year 2464 AD and your Space Time Machine has landed on an alien planet, and being of an inquisitive nature, you decide to explore it. You have been gifted with a special kind of power that aids you when you are exploring strange planets. You are able to mutate into the alien beings' form. On this mysterious planet of Ivorus, the beings are minute and flea-like with amazing jumping powers. However, during your exploration, you take an unexpected trip and fall down and down and down through a deep and dark pot hole into a strange cave. All around you are flesh-eating plants, not to mention a hungry pterodactyl.....

You must elude these dangers, so utilise your jumping powers to ward off your enemies till you finally escape from the disastrous cave. No sooner are you safe, than disaster strikes again! Down you go again, but this time the flesh-eating plants have multiplied and they don't want you to escape. Good luck!

When you eventually get out of the cave, the score is multiplied by a number which depends on the game skill level.
