Fans of Only Fools and Horses, the cult TV comedy series, will enjoy this CD-ROM from the BBC. It includes a range of add-ons and extras from the series that you can use to brighten up your PC and provide a constant reminder of the show. Needless to say, much of this is tacky - which is the whole point. The point and click calculator, for example, is covered in fake leopard skin and emits little tunes, the clock has a distinct 1970s look, and the calendar, which you can use as a real diary, has snow scene style pictures of Peckham (the "up and coming" area of London where the Only Fools and Horses characters live).
These desktop utilities are only the beginning. There are wallpaper, icons and animated cursors to give your computer a complete make-over, and screen savers that include video clips and other extras so that even when you are not working you can be reminded of the series. If you are a bit of a know-it-all, then you'll enjoy browsing clips from the series and trying a quiz, while a game in which you have to complete suitable scam type tasks, should keep you amused for a while. Only Fools and Horses is a mishmash of material that provides enough information, fun and amusement to keep the average fan of the series amused for hours.
The Only Fools and Horses PC CD-ROM contains all your favorite moments from the brilliant and hilarious BBC series. It is divided into three main areas (with some bonus games to boot!): In Del Boy's Bargains, you will find desktop items that only Del would acquire--ones that don't work properly! These include Del's calculator with added "functions", and a calendar with pearls of wisdom from Del and Rodney... Taking a peek at Rodney's Diploma gives you access to a host of different wallpapers, cursors, icons and sounds, and a personalized video and still-image screensaver which you can edit together yourself, or use Del's recommendations. You can also pop in for the Nag's Head Knee's Up, and view classic moments from the series on the big screen TV and test your Only Fools knowledge at the Pub Quiz. Finally, if you fancy a little distraction, you can risk a few virtual shekels on the Fruit Machine or you could take to the streets of Peckham in a three-wheel driving game!
