Ah Diddums


One of Imagine’s early 16k games, Ah Diddums was a great concept sadly let down by poor implementation. Playing a little teddy bear, it was your job to comfort the baby by giving it toys from the toy box.

This meant mother would come and turn the light out which the other toys didn’t like: they preferred the light on so they could muck about and cause mischief! With bright, colourful graphics and an intriguing premise, Ah Diddums could have been a 16k classic along the lines of Ultimate’s Jet Pac or Imagine’s own Arcadia. Cranky gameplay, flickering graphics and some dreadful colour clash let it down badly however, although it sold well thanks to Imagine’s well known publicity skills and presentation.
