Linked reviews are available to view in full on this site.
Vortex (Software Invasion) (BBC Model B)
Hi-res graphics are used... The game is purely
black and white, losing it some impact.
Here Comes The Sun (Alligata) (Spectrum 48K/128K)
Good fun, though I must own up to never looking like achieving success.
The Guardian (PSS) (Spectrum 48K)
This is a game to be remembered, so you can avoid it.
Laser Zone (Salamander) (Dragon 32)
An exciting Dragon game nicely complemented with high score, title page, pause function and 15 levels of play.
Insector (Romik) (Commodore Vic 20)
This struggles even to be mediocre.
Pyramid (Mogul) (Commodore 64)
I cannot say I was impressed with Pyramid.
Bugged (Dungeon) (Dragon 32)
Good programming, but a poor game. A pity.
O Level Caper (Phoenix) (Commodore Vic 20)
It seems a fatal mistake making an arcade game and an adventure interdependent... If you are weak at one you may never even start the other.
Super Spy (Richard Shepherd) (Dragon 32)
In under 90 minutes I had finished the adventure and I cannot see it taking most people any longer.
Mania (Intrigue) (TI99/4A)
The graphics use the TI's facilities well... I would certainly recommend Mania.
Disassembler (Hilton Computer Services) (Dragon 32/64)
The price is reasonable, but it may still be better to buy Assembler/Disassembler/Editor all in one.
Basic Environment (Harris McCutcheon Systems) (BBC Model B)
While all the elements work satisfactorily, I found the whole thing difficult and cumbersome to work with.
Graphics System (Salamander) (Acorn Electron)
With this program, a wonderful canvas is created to play with or work on.
Tele-Forth (Microdeal) (Dragon 32)
I tested two copies on two different Dragons... I had immense difficulty in getting it to work.
Supadraw (Steeplesoft Systems) (Dragon 32/64)
If you don't have a graphics program then this is worth considering, but it really doesn't have enough extra facilities to justify buying if you've already got something similar.
Star Trader (First Byte) (BBC Model B)
An acceptable idea, but fails to exploit the graphic potential of the BBC.
Wizard's Challenge (Micro Power) (BBC Model B)
Suits a modestly experienced adventurer who had had good experience of schools and knows how some of the usual adventure conventions work.
Intergalactic Trader (Micro Power) (BBC Model B)
The screens could have been more colourful and better presented (all Mode 7). Some graphics would have been nice too.
Scan (Paen Systems) (BBC Model B)
Likely to give much longer use than the average arcade game.
Sliding Block Puzzle (Ega-Beva) (BBC Model B)
A good educational game, but annoyingly the level of difficulty can be altered only be re-loading
Airline (Cases) (Acorn Electron)
A thoroughly enjoyable game.
Dallas (Cases) (Acorn Electron)
If you can survive the tornado, sabotage, earthquakes, etc, you'll be able to take over J.R.'s empire.
Viking (Dragon Data) (Dragon 32)
A rather enjoyable and unusual game. The instructions are given in a booklet and the cassette comes nicely packaged in a video-type box.
Corn Cropper (Cases) (Acorn Electron)
The perplexing point is how to lay off temporary workers hired for harvesting. Their wages are so high they must belong to a very good union.
Spectrum Safari (CDS) (Spectrum 48K)
One of the few programs that might exercise your intellect and still be fun!
Abyss (Cases) (BBC/Electron)
An original game well worth an investment... At times, one has to be a super-fast reader to read the instructions and complete your task.
Jammin' (Taskset) (Commodore 64)
A very smooth program with excellent music, superb colour and hilarious animation.
Silicon (Romik) (Atari 400/800)
Will probably find a home on the shelves
of fast-action maze game enthusiasts.
Wheelie (Microsphere) (Spectrum 48K)
A very addictive game likely to cause a great deal of squabbling over whose turn it is next.
Killer Knight (Phipps Associates) (Spectrum 48K)
The player has four lives, but even so I could not reach higher than the fourth floor - far less a higher screen.
Spectipede (R&R) (Spectrum 16K)
Graphics aren't up to present standards... Some young friends found it addictive, partly because of its ease of play and because of its slow speed and lack of subtlety.
Push Off (Software Projects) (Spectrum 16K)
I tried the game a total of five times, and could find no bugs or loading problems.
The House Of The Living Dead (Phipps Associates) (Spectrum 48K)
Graphics and use of sound, though interesting, are not to present standards: though, when dying, the player dances a fascinating jig!
Bubble Trouble (Arcade) (Spectrum 48K)
A fun game for all ages which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Paratroopers (Rabbit) (Spectrum 16K/48K)
Addictive to the younger players or those who
find it difficult to score in other games.
Which Salt? (Micro Power) (BBC Model B)
A pity there aren't more programs of this
quality, style and price.
The Alphabet (Commodore) (Commodore Vic 20)
Very disappointing. To make the package worth buying it really needs some attractive animation, and the use of sound and voice synthesis.
Marathon (English) (Commodore 64)
At higher levels it's more a test of reactions than ability.
Jigsaw Puzzle (Ega-Beva) (BBC Model B)
A good but limited educational game, more suited for a group than an individual.
The Magic Shop (Five Ways) (Spectrum 48K)
I cannot praise this program highly enough - try it with your child!
