Linked reviews are available to view in full on this site.
Tee Off (Dragon Data) (Dragon 32)
All the interest stirred by this game was lost in my struggle with the ball.
Las Vegas Lady (Mogul) (Spectrum 48K)
Very little to hold the attention. It might have been a bit more interesting if there was some kind of simulation of the reels spinning.
Pinball (Microdeal) (Dragon 32)
All the graphics are hi-res, there are sound effects and the ball moves very smoothly and realistically.
Snooker (Visions) (Acorn Electron)
This program attempts and almost succeeds to give the full realism of the game.
Oric Golf (R&R) (Oric 1/Oric 48K)
Unlike similar software, there is no choice of clubs, and the hazards - bunkers, trees and pond - are rather crude.
Blockade Runner (Thorn EMI) (Spectrum 48K)
Blockade Runner is addictive and fun - you won't easily tire of it.
Potty Planter (Mogul) (Spectrum 48K)
Not addictive, and not impressive... Can only be described as run of the mill.
Ostron (Softek) (Spectrum 16K)
Not too easy to play... Requires a bit of practice to pass the first two levels.
Adder Attack (Mogul) (Spectrum 48K)
Action is quite smooth, and the game not as easy as it first appears.
Alchemist (Imagine) (Spectrum 48K)
A game I shall continue to play for some time to come.
Spring Heeled Jack (Stainless) (TI99/4A)
Control is from the keyboard, using keys of your own choice, and he may be moved left, right or up.
Galactic Zoo-Keeper (Microsonic) (TI99/4A)
Games programs written in TI Basic are of necessity limited, and this program is no exception.
Hunchback Havock (Lantern) (TI99/4A)
A well-designed game with excellent graphics.
Various bugs are inherent in the program. I failed to get any further than level three, being prevented not only by bad luck but by two "Bad Value"s and a "Syntax Error"!
Bouncing Bugs (Stainless) (TI99/4A)
Since there is no random element, before long the exact requirements to land the bugs can be remembered.
Acheron's Rage (Softek) (Oric 48K)
A very good program which I can recommend to anyone.
Not particularly original perhaps, but it was entertaining enough to keep me going for over an hour.
All in all, a nice package for arcade fans although, of course, five short games cannot rival the more sophisticated Oric programs now available.
Loki (Joe The Lion) (Oric 48K)
A good game for your Oric library.
Loch Ness Monsters (Romik) (Oric 48K)
A well constructed game, with probably more lasting appeal than a lot of others.
Cybertron Mission (Micro Power) (BBC Model B)
An excellent game with a highly addictive attraction.
Space Jailer (Micro Power) (BBC Model B)
Addictive and fun to play - you feel you can always do better next time.
Crazy Painter (Superior) (BBC Model B)
Great sound and graphics, smooth and accurate animation, responsive and simple control mean that this game should follow Killer Gorilla to the No. 1 spot.
Lightcycles (Paen Systems) (BBC Model B)
If you like Tron you might like this.
Challenger (Joe The Lion) (BBC Model B)
The graphics have plenty of detail but this means they lack the colour I now expect, too.
Fig Forth (Romik) (Commodore 64)
Reasonable value and recommended for those disenchanted with Basic.
Discs And The BBC (M.G.B. Software Support) (BBC Model B)
A good value package, but I should have preferred the utilities on ROM.
Decode Tandy/Dragon 32 (Compusense) (Dragon 32)
Unless you have a vast amount of material to convert, you may be better advised to buy a cassette that performs the same functions, slower but cheaper.
Utilities No. 1 (Hilton) (Dragon 32)
Very useful if you use your Dragon a lot and, at just a fiver, good value.
Screenplay (CompuSoft) (BBC Model B)
Simply a pleasant diversion for a few minutes and, as such, not worth the money, I'm afraid.
Additional Fun (Shiva) (BBC Model B)
I found the idea of negation as used here hard to understand at first.
Number Rally (Longman) (BBC Model B)
The parents' leaflet reads: "The simulation of a car rally may not be immediately obvious to younger children." In which case why use the idea at all?
Sets And Operators (Shiva) (BBC Model B)
The documentation, though very good indeed in every other respect, does presume some prior knowledge.
Nursery Rhymes (CompuSoft) (BBC Model B)
If you intend to wean your child onto information technology at an early age you could do far worse.
Reading (Commodore) (Commodore Vic 20)
Remember that this is a testing package and not a teaching package.
