A game that offers very good, all round value for money.
If played in groups, it will certainly help pass winter evenings and maybe put a few bragging drivers in their place.
Canyon (BBC Soft) (BBC Model B)
Very disappointing, to say the least, and very expensive to make a mistake on. See this game before buying it.
Overtaker/Brands Hatch (Jupiter Cantab) (Jupiter Ace)
If you can forget about cars and treat the game as simply a difficult piece of manoeuvring, it becomes quite a challenge and is certainly fast enough for anyone.
Hover Bovver (Llamasoft) (Commodore 64)
A tip - The dog cannot run over the flower beds, so you can use them to hide from it.
Movie Producer (Silly) (Dragon 32)
Once you have found the film's location, there is little point in playing again, except perhaps to win acclaim from the critics or achieve box-office success.
The Black Planet (Phipps) (Spectrum 48K)
Landing at starbase is a considerable juggling exercise - and it is a little difficult to understand the screen display relative to the instructions.
Horror Castle (A 'n F) (Dragon 32)
If you like text-only adventures then Horror Castle may be worth adding to your collection, as it is easy to use, but definitely not easy to crack.
Dr. Who: The First Adventure (BBC Soft) (BBC Model B)
The theme is well maintained, and your constant enemy is Time itself - you have only one hour in which to complete the game.
Gorgon (Phipps) (Spectrum 48K)
Loosely connected with ancient legend - except I always thought of a Gorgon as a she, and here it is a he.
Toolbox (BBC Soft) (BBC Model B)
Fantastic value, easy to use and utterly painless.
Super Talk (Abbex) (Spectrum 48K)
Reads out numbers produced at random, calls red alert, and so on, in response to data produced by a Basic program.
The Key (Keysoft) (Spectrum 16K/48K)
There are occasions when you will want to backup a copy of your favourite program, and The Key will provide just that for you, quite easily.
Spectrum Kopykat (Medsoft) (Spectrum 48K)
Even 41K and headerless programs copied successfully, although one program did fail.
Mikro 64 (Supersoft) (Commodore 64)
The usual pseudo-op codes (WOR, END, BYT and TXT) are available, as are commands for listing the assembled code and generating a label table.
Viper (RH Electronics) (BBC Model B)
The best part of this game is the instructions... There isn't even a sense of achievement as you eat the food; each piece is replaced by another so you never complete the screen.
Fish And Flutterer (Jupiter Cantab) (Jupiter Ace)
The fish's jaws snap salaciously and the score clocks up bottom right.
It might have some interest for younger gamesters, but I doubt it they would stay interested for very long.
Exterminator (Bubble Bus) (Commodore 64)
The animation and design of the creatures are brilliant and the overall pace of the game is fast.
California Gold Rush (Anik) (Commodore 64)
The game is simple to learn and play, and is amusing - at first... The problem is that after a few plays it gets boring.
Space Caverns (Byteware) (BBC Model B)
Most disappointing - a game to avoid.
Outland/Megafighter (Roach) (TI99/4A)
Overall 78%. Only one key can be acted upon at a time, but even so reasonably good control can be achieved.
Protector (Sian) (Camputers Lynx)
Although the game may at first appear repetitive, it is well presented and challenging.
Planet Destroyer (Stainless) (TI99/4A)
This game is well thought out, and makes the most of TI Basic and colour.
Spacefighter Pilot/Missile Man (Jupiter Cantab) (Jupiter Ace)
Moving lines produce a most realistic sensation of motion until the jump into hyperspace with a choice of two warp speeds, both good and fast.
Sultan's Maze (Gem) (Dragon 32)
This is a game which, though not addictive, I will play occasionally.
Spook 64 (Byteware) (Commodore 64)
This is a pretty faithful reproduction of the original.
Mazeman (Abersoft) (Camputers Lynx)
A good buy.
Labyrinth (Quazar Computing) (Camputers Lynx)
Although this game needs a little more refining, it is still an excellent and imaginative production.
Corridors Of Genon (New Generation) (Spectrum 48K)
You can practise your computer deactivating skill or choose to play the full game at one of three levels and at one of three speeds.
