Here's me explaining some about the game while playing...
RetroGamerVX has challenged us to make Spectrum themed videos this week in honor of the ZX Spectrum's 30th birthday. Of course all I could do is comply to escape the wrath of my Evil Twin from the UK.
His video can be found here:

Looks interesting... I remember a lot of these early "redefined character set" based games back in the day... It seems like a play on the snake/surround style game.
The game also has a port on the C64, which looks and plays similar. With similar characters. Quite a challenging and addictive game by the way.
I'll have to load it up on the emulator and check it out.
