Gherbert had just got his burrow laid out perfectly for his upcoming date with his sweetheart.
Unfortunately his jealous crazy critter neighbours broke in and stole his belongings.

With only hours to go until his big date Gherbert must venture outside to find his stuff and get back to tidy up before his date arrives at 8pm.

@PuttyCAD and PsychicParrot have released a game for the ZX Spectrum!

Help Gherbert retrieve his belongings before his date arrives!



You can Purchase Gherbert Groundhog in Save the Date over on itch.io for £3 or more, where you'll get a .tap file for emulators or playing to a real system!!
Type Load "" and Press Play on Tape to run the game.

Looks good mate, sort of reminds me of Dizzy and MOTR.

Thanks Steve! Yeah, Ric (who made the graphics) has always loved Gremlin stuff and has a particular fondness for Monty so it was bound to get that kind of vibe! I'm really pleased with how it turned out, but now I need a time machine to take it back to 1985 so I can pass it to myself to become a rich and famous game developer XD

Just looking at the YT video, the first few rooms looked decidely empty and dull. I began to wonder if it was just a dull treasure hunt. Looked really tedious. And then the enemies arrived. Unfortunately it looked to me that they weren't really much use as they were so easily avoided.

Definitely has the Monty On The Run look to it though

Not sure if that's a sarcastic comment or not; whatever, I just call it as I saw it.
