Litil Divil is a video game released by Gremlin Interactive in 1993. The player takes control of a little red devil called Mutt who is trying to escape from a dungeon. The dungeon consists of a maze maneveured through from an over-the-shoulder perspective and rooms where Mutt is facing various riddles. The character was created by a student from Cann Hall Primary School as part of a nationwide competition. The schoolboy, William Cummings, received the first copy of the finished product as a reward for winning the competition.

Reception[edit]

The four reviewers of Electronic Gaming Monthly had a moderately positive reaction to the CD-i version, praising the multifaceted gameplay, the graphics, the sound, and the cute, humorous personality of the player character, but criticizing the lagging controls. They scored it a 6.5 out of 10.[1]
