I showed the program to a non-computer literate friend who had fun creating a conversation between 'Scargie' and 'Thatch' (characters' names cannot be longer than seven letters) as well as devising a character with a nice line in selling life insurance.
This is probably one of the better arcade games in terms of graphics, but very poor in the field of sound.
Strike Force Harrier (Mirrorsoft)/Jump Jet (Anirog)
Beware, this is a joystick-only game... Flying and manoeuvring are difficult and you are penalised for each mistake you make.
I didn't manage to win or even score a goal against the micro - the last game finished with a goal kick and my man taking it kept running into the side netting...
The graphics are very good, yet simple. The game appeals to young and old alike, and is certainly addictive - you can play it for hours.
Mastering The Electron (Ellis Horwood)
The authors' knowledge and experise is obvious in every line, but they don't rub the reader's nose in it. Anyone who works carefully through this book will be a master not just of the Electron, but of programming generally.
BBC Micro Advanced Programming (Prentice Hall)
A book which should be of interest to readers over a wide range of programming abilities.
Starting With Unix (Addison-Wesley)
I found this an informative, readable book and a very enjoyable way to learn Unix.
Filing Systems And Databases For The BBC Micro (Granada)
This is absolutely appalling. The authors tell us they were confused. When we buy a book, we hope at least it explains something to us in reasonably clear, concise language. Unfortunately, this one doesn't.
Wordwise Application Guide (Norwich Computer Services)
The content is really at the level of a magazine article rather than a published book, and with only 52 pages of quite large text it's not very long anyway.
Magazine Bibliography (McHugh Enterprises)
It may at first seem that the package is expensive but, if you do any amount of reference-checking, if you need information fast and if you consider the amount of graft that has gone into this piece, you'll not begrudge a penny of it.
For the price of the design software and the carousel and Fax systems, this must be a strong new contender in the education market.
Pascal For Basic Programmers (Addison-Wesley)
For any serious programmer wanting to take advantage of the discipline of Pascal, this book is an important step to successful application programs. Here is a practical, informative guide to learning to use that power.
A good introduction at a reasonable price.
Morley Teletext Adaptor (Morley Electronics)
Where the Morley unit will succeed over the Acorn one is that it can receive 8-bit data transmissions, and not just on the existing, limited number of data lines but over all 625 lines of the TV signal.
