This item contains versions of Brian Jacks' Superstar Challenge for Acorn Electron and BBC B/B+/Master 128.
I'm not really convinced that Brian Jacks' Challenge is really strong enough to keep me entertained for long, but simulations of sporting events are quite popular and this is one of the better ones. Read Review
The game demands a great deal of tactical thinking as well as stamina and, of course, a tough joystick! Read Review
There are considerably different techniques to be adopted for tackling the various challenges. Read Review
The main program is probably one of the best of its type. What a pity the same care wasn't taken with the sound and the instructions. Read Review
You have to complete the test to move onto round two (the same events again) but I rarely have the patience to do it. Read Review
Brian Jacks challenges you to these eight events:
Brian Jacks, world famous judo and TV Superstars champion, made it very clear.
"It better be good," he said.
We didn't feel like arguing the point, so we just got to work.
The result is one of the most exciting, addictive and challenging games you will ever have attempted.
We feel it only fair to warn you though - challenge Brian Jacks to anything and *you'd* better be good!
Unless otherwise stated, the power in each event is increased by moving the joystick from side to side, or by tapping the Z and X keys.
Every so often you have to breathe. To achieve this, simply press the Fire button or the Return key at the right moment. Failure to breathe correctly, when you head is underwater for example, will have an unfortunate effect on your swimming ability.
Correct lane drift by holding stroke longer on one side.
The elevation of your shot is changed by pushing the joystick up or down or pressing the * key for up, and the : key for down.
To change up a gear, move the joystick up or press the * key. To change down a gear, move the joystick down or press the : key.
Moving the joystick left or tapping the Z key will move you in one direction only and similarly, moving the joystick right or tapping the X key will move you in the opposite direction.
You have to do as many squat thrusts as you can in 60 seconds. A squat thrust will not be counted if either your knees do not come up to your elbows or your feet, do not cross the line.
You have to do as many arm-dips as you can in 60 seconds. An arm dip will not be counted if either your shoulder does not reach the judge's flat or your arms do not fully straighten again.
To complete one arm dip, press the Fire button or the Return key to start moving down. Move the joystick from side to side or tap the Z and X keys to arrest this fall and then to push yourself back to the start position.
The object of this event is to dribble a ball around cones, then to try and score a goal. You have three goes at this, but you only have two minutes in which to do it.
Movement around the field is by joystick or by using ZX:?. By pressing two keys at once the number directions of movement can be increased to eight.
When in front of the goal, aim the cursor by using the joystick or the same keys as above. You will have to be quick!
Tape: CHAIN"" (RETURN)
Disk: Hold SHIFT and tap BREAK
