Thanks to both you guys.
SUne....I've been a complete and utter cabbage. I was thinking it was only a 1 stick control game, hence never being able to move! Also it's pretty bloody clear that the missus couldn't have played it THAT often else she'd have remembered. As the Spanish would say (in terms of frustration..) "hay que joderse"
FC Studio, cheers too. Maybe I should d/l it and get her to play it instead.
