A real rave from the grave, this one. Zenji's the first of a series of old Activision games to reappear on the Firebird Silver label. It's a puzzle, in which you have to change the colour of a network of tubes by rotating the power supply and so changing the pattern. It's quite clever, but unlike the Boulderdash games it hasn't survived well, and now looks very shoddy indeed - white border, bog standard Speccy typescript and graphics out of the Jurassic age. Scarcely even worth the cost of the blank tape.
