completely when we announced Ihe launch ol a new Amiga magazine With so many Amiga titles on the market already, Ihey argued, such a lale-comer wouldn't stand a chance And when they discovered that we intended lo go on sale with no cover disks, reservations were made at the Sunny Daze Sanatorium!

The Supervision is revolutionary in ihe way Ihe mono screen can be lilted for a better viewing angle Of course, there's Ihe obligatory Iree game supplied m the package (as well as earphones and four batteries). But those who think the Supervision will prove lo be a one game wonder, think again Wiih 50 carls available for Ihe Christmas market and more currenHy in development.

But. Arrogant gits that we are. We were confident that we knew better By cutting I out all Ihe technical cobblers which mosl I rival mags carry in a cynical allempt lo attract hardware advertisers, by ensuring a laughably low price due lo our refusal to carry useless cover disks, and by commitimg ourselves lo providing ihe very besl Amiga games information in the shape ol easy to-use lips and ruthlessly honest reviews ol finished games ONLY), we were convinced that we d win over a sizeable slice ol the mag-buying public And guess what? WE WERE RIGHTi As a result, you'll be happy lo know, Irom
next issue on we're going lo go monthly. Issue Three hits Ihe streets on Feb 16. And from then on in we'll be exploding onto Ihe news stands at regular monthly intervals. So thanks, Amigaphiles, for wilhoul you none ol this would have been possible, May The Force Be With You.

There are seme real bargains to be found on budget as we discovered while playing tha entire range of £9.99 Kixjc CARRIER COMMAND TUSKER ¦ It's not one ol System 3 s best arcade adventures, but Tusker contains puzzles galore and plenty of combat with bare lists, knife, machete, slingshot or gun. Slick scenery helps create a heady atmosphere as you explore Alrica in search ol Ihe mythical elephants graveyard ¦ This was a real mileslone in the history of software created by Realtime (who more recently did the Gamesmaster TV title sequence) The solid 3-D in Carrier isn't quite so imptessive
nowadays, but complements the tense action: a combmalion of arcade action and deep stralegy. Not only do you control a huge carrier, but also the three fighter planes and amphibious vehicles within, trying to conquer islands and then detend them against the computer carnet. A classic.
STRIDER ¦ A good anempl al converting ihe ground breaking Capccm coin-op Some of the superbaddies are a bit crude, but the hero climbs and cartwheels his way around Ihe large mullidireclionally scrolling levels with style, swiping his sword at countless varied enemies Three years after its otiginal release, il can't compare with the slickness ot today s arcade conversions, but Ians ol the coin-op will savour ihe unique graphic style and addictive action ST DRAGON ¦ The harizcnlally scrolling blaster doesn't live up lo the rave reviews it received on its ?riginal telease. But it's not bad You

It's gripping stuff as your futuristic slock car jumps miles into the air Irom ramps to dear massive chasms A superb long-term challenge is provided by the toui division league and eight tracks 'WORLD CLASS LEADER BOARD ACTION FIGHTER ¦ A poor conversion
ot an obscure Sega com op this is a mediocre Spyhunler vacant ie a vertically scrolling destructive driver.

This horizontally scrolling shoot- em up features some slick presentahon However, although Ihe detailed armament screen is indeed excellent, it lakes too long to arm your ships, only to see them all destroyed within a couple of minutes play to Ol RUN ¦ By today s standards, the 3-D looks decidedly ropy.

As such, it's very playable as you race lo reach race checkpoints within light time limits, using your limited turbo power to best

THUNDER BLADE ¦ An awkward control system makes for Iruslrating play in Ihis dubious conversion of the hydraulic coin-op The 3-D looks neat, but weaving your choppier through lower blocks and flak is a frustrating affair The vertically scrolling levels are more piayaole.

A There 'are a number' of natty new 'releases waiting in the
wings this month, games which have ~ somehow failed to
materialise in their full and finished form.
Enough in the way of pre* production demo disks have found their way to the A-Team's floppy drives, however, but since we're only in the business of reviewing shop-ready software we'll round 'em up here in the previews section... '' A i is LEMMINGS 2 -I TRIBES ¦ Psygnosis, £25.99 The anginal Lemmings game (along with the consequent Oh No Nol More Lemming si extra-levels disk) was praised from the rooftops by the computer press and consumers alike quite an astounding achievement, considering it was (a) an original game concept, and (b) not a tie-in At last, the eagerly awaited sequel is
nearing completion and. Irom whal we've seen from our demo version, it looks to be even greater than the original The lemmings are now capable ot more involved actions, such as lilting in holes on the landscape, building walls, skiing our suicidal little triends have even nipped oft tor archery lessons (true!).
KtEt: Their movements have to be seen lo be believed take a look at the screenshots and you might get some idea at just how involved it all is. Graphically improved over its predecessor, and with tar more varied gameplay, Lemmings 2 could well be the big km as New Vear hit.

How nice it would be to take the controls ot an end-ot-level bad guy WaAer to a certain extent, car fulfil Ihis dream In this unusual rigbl-to-lett scroller, you take the role ot a massive two-legged mechanical Walker, blasting everything that moves This is great tun but what really makes II special is the novel control method Yol move the Walker right left using the joystick, while moving his guns with the mouse One dick of the mouse button and. .

Lethal Weapon ioilcws the usual tried and-tesled formula for lilm licences but is much slicker than most Neal touches like wonderfully animated water, with little balaclava-cl ad hitmen leaping out and shooting you make an
action game something special Lethal Weapon has this and more. See it it shoots Irom the hip when we review the i finished and final vers nn next Sh ¦m office biggies they may weli have been, but how La that Weapon will do In tha software cherts la anyone's guess. Looks good, though!
EET FIGHTER II ¦ US Gold £35.99 The Super Nintendo version of the popular arcade machine has been hyped beyonc I all belief recently The N FORCE (our sister mag) bunch have done then little bit to contribute as well Net satisfied with jusl playing the thing, they ve been stomping into | our a ft ices and crowing about how good it is, and how the Amiga could never cope with all the sprites (not to mention the speed) Well hopefully US Gold are set to prove them wrong, because being the industrious 'ittle beavers that they are. They ve obtained the ioence to produce home computer versions Just
Imagine it all those opponents to defeat stamp on and generally mutilate I a sadist s dieam Now where s that blender.
If you haven't yet soon the cnin op or SNES version (wheie have you been?), the game features one on ore combat against various opponents as you travel tha world It's most noted tor the unique sprites and toughness of the lighters, each of which has Ihree spec a. moves, eg the Sumo wrestler does a db-crushing bear hug1 Hopefully tha Amiga version vdll live up to the ullracompetitive reputation of its coin op counterpart one player allegedly set fire to his opponent after losing a game1 ARABIAN NIGHTS ¦ Kvisulii, £23.90 Arabian Nights is yet another game in the popular platform mould, but
Irom what we've seen so far it looks to be a particularly good example at the genre.
Taking the part of Sinbad Jr (a little guy with a sword and a red hat) your objective Is to escape from the Caliph s castle, light through varied terrains and rescue Ihe Caliph's daughter. This may seem like unusual behaviour far an ex captive but the plot makes it very clear that our hero had been wrongly imprisoned. Rescuing the woman seems to be Jts way ol clearing his name (why couldn t he just rob a bank and move to Spain?).
Arabian Nights from Krisalis either so cute you’ll puke... or so smart you'll, er, buy It? Find out next ish!
Our preview version looks wonderful, with Jr running like someone after eating several packels of figs and jumping like a kangaroo with a pin in its bum The backdrops are colourful, varied, and most of them are interactive For example, hitting the trees even though they're static scenery makes little leaves float to the ground That s not all Puzzles are salved using clues given (in a light bulb above Jr's head) when certain objects scenery come into the hero's view. This doesn t appear to detract trom the game (it could possibly have made puzzles a little loo easy) it merely acts as a
well-presented extra in what could be the best Amiga platform game yet.

However, it had its drawbacks idoesn t everything?), the most noticeable being the price The rereleased computer version'll save you a pile ol dosh. But is it any better than its board based brother?
Well, the answer is yes and no.
Despite the inclusion ot nice graphical touches and musical questions you can actually hear, Trtviafs the sod ot game you play around a table not a computer desk.
Secondly, the Amiga version's almosl identical to its 8-bit counterparts. This isn't exactly an eadh shattering problem, but you'd have thought with alt the extra memory something more could have been incorporated (those musical questions, frinstance, could he reproduced exactly on a Speccy).

Its downfall is that the aclion gels a tad repetitive after a while running around searching lor treasure may be tun, but it it's on a computer, you dont gel to keep if!
However touches like the level codes make Hammer a nice bit of aclion lo keep you playing through the small hours. Recent releases such as Kmsty s Super Funhouse and Hudson Hawk (on budget) are better value tor money, ottering a great deal more long-lerm interest But it you can afford bolh ol these and still want more action, you can't go tar wrong with PP TIP TIMEI Use power-ups sparingly you may come lo a poml when you really need them.

Rather than using Ihe presenl-day mililary scenario associated with Sabre Team, Shadawlands is set in the tai lulure an a gigarlic orbital research station. Contact wiih Ihe stalion has heen Iasi, so a leam gl tout individuals is needed to travel to the station and ascertain whal actually happened ihere |hmm, sounds vaguely lamiliar Ed) However, on arrival (and alter choosing your team) il soon becomes brutally plain that something very strange has happened.
Once you get Ihe hang ol moving aboul (the control method is a little hewifdanng al lirst), encounteis wiih olher creatures become plentiful Bul anybody wiih tunny ideas about friendly' aliens after watching ET for too long is going to he terribly d sappomied Ihese guys would eat little EI Hoi I lor breaklasti Pick 'n' mix It Possibly our favourite part ot Sbadeworlds Is Ihe ability to mix1 weapons, with a view to creating an oltensive mega-weapon la suit your needs. Getting a decent gun is probahly Ihe lirst (and mosl important) task those who ihmk a Light Sabre will keep them alive are in
lor a BIG shock.
The graphics are fantastic: a revolutionary shading technique makes Team 1 7, £25.99 Platform exploration games have been prelty I hick on the ground recently, with the AMIGA FORCE otfice being snowed under a deluge cl Sonic anti Mario clones. How nice it would be we Ihcughi, to see a more traditional ooom and gloom, death and glory approach to things, as opposed to endless cute ness.
Well, it seems Team17 have hac the same idea their latest release is totally devoid ol anylhing fluffy (unless you include Ihe neck-gnawing guarc-dcgs] ana it packs a mean punch in Ihe gore cepartmenl. The gameplay revolves around Ihe hero's mission to end the re gn of letter by Midan, villain extraordinaire and all-round had guy Along Ihe way he comes inlo contact wiih Midan s thugs and security machines, all of which car be killed by the Assassin s boomerangs (his main offensive abject) and Ihe co lectahe special weapons (essentially glortied smart bombs). To starl wiih, the boomerangs are
prehy weak and i ineltective, but can be j scuped up by col'ectmg V Ihe numerous pcwer- i ps I defer.

Mosl camfortablei Whi'e we erjoyec play ng the game, we tell the the hero s weapon was a bit wimpy. In aur books, lore warriors lake huge
guns wiih ols at buttons inla battle, not an old Australian hunt ng tool (Ihe Ahoiigines use hoamerangs to distract wildlife, making spearing easier) While this is by no means a major gripe, il seems lo detract Irom Ihe game in some peculiar way In addition, Ihe control melhcd is a little tricky to master In tact Ihe Assass n's very ditfcull lo manoeuvre at times eaoing lo ir(l.rialion and all marner el teeih grashmg.

As real-time stralegy action games go.
Shadoworlds is one ot the best available, ottering scope lor many a long night ol enjoyment and pleasant frustration. Highly recommended.
TIP TIME! Send characters in to Sil attack on their own rather than in a group, lo avoid non conlrolled characters getting killed ymsmniA ¦ Renegade, £25.99 Sensible Soccer has been heralded by many (not to mention the AMIGA FORCE crew) as Ihe best toothall game ever. As well as being almasl perfectly implemented, it provokes a more thoughtful type ot play, although this doesn't slop Ihe obligatory llow ol expletives (Ihe Ihings we've said about Phil's mother') as the linal whistle draws closer a.
Flowever, there are a tew minor tlaws, the goalkeeping being possibly the worst You see. It's all too easy to kick the ball directly at a goal post resulting in an almost suicidal dive hy the keeper (missing the hall], and an open goal while he takes ages to get up Obviously, this is immensely infuriating, leaving a bad lasle in Ihe mouth of all punst loclhallers (such as us).
Well, lo and behold, a new and improved version at Sensible Soccer has now been launched All the features of the onginal have been retained, the lew faults have been successfully ironed out. And a couple of new options included. Add Ihe opportunity for existing Sensible owners to apply lor the updated version and keep their existing copy (for a negligible fee. Of course) and you have the game of a lifetime, a product that no self respecting Amiga user should be without.
Simply tha Gaorge Baal!
For those ot you who haven t seen the game (where have you been?), it's played at a last and furious pace, with tiny players zipping around an overhead-view, scrolling pitch Control switches automatically between ¦ Steve files in with a most spectacular diving header (left), and Phil gets his kit nft!
* your players, who dribble by pushing the ball along, Kick
Ofl-style An almost infinite range ol swerved and lobbed shots
is made possihle by the subtle aflertouch control the earlier
you move the joystick, the greater the effect.
Passing to other p ayers m the team is easily achieved by a quick stab of the tire button, resulting in attractive football rather than the usual kicking and hoping seen in most other games This is aided by the small character spntes, as a great deal of the pitch (about a third) is shown on screen, meaning real ladies play a large part in winning matches In Version 1.1, almost all of the rules associated with football have been included, the only exception being the offside rule (it was a disaster in Kick Off 2). The most obvious addition is that of yellow red cards.
These aren't awarded randomly, as in many soccer sims realistically, professional fouls are usually punished with red cards, normal heavy tackles with yellow The satisfaction gained from seeing your best trend s star forward sent off is immense, especially when they receive the consequent two three match ban.
Flowever, the most important improvement of all is that the goalkeepers now play like real keepers, rather than triple-jump athletes high an Lucazade. Not picking up back-passes (dribbling instead), pushing the hall around and aver the woodwork, as well as catching it in mid dive are all now commonplace This makes for better football, as you need to perform clever attacking moves to have a chance ol scoring These improvements complement the exlra options (such as World Cup qualifying rounds and better European Cup implementation) a treat Yes, the best toctball sim ever has just got better This
is the game to buy an Amiga tor Miss it at your peril TIP TIME! Redi reel headers and sliding tackles at 45 degree angles by quickly changing direction before connecting with the hall This really contuses your opponent and his goalie!

I These coold take the 1 lorm ot an I assassination attempt la rescue, or even I escape. The screen I display was a strange mixture I ol overhead and side-on views, with I an intelligent line-of-sight tealure that meant I enemies couldn t be seen unless they were m | your team’s tield ot vision Sadrs Team is similar to Laser Squad in I quite a lew areas. Movement and actions are 1 made by use ot Action Points At the start ol I every game turn, each character has an initial I total ot Aps (which can be reduced toy injury or [carrying too much) to spend on various useful functions For example,
if a team member has 41 Aps, he could open a door (costing 4 Aps) prime a grenade (G Aps) and throw Ihe explosive Ihrough the open door (7 Aps), leaving him with 24 Aps to run away (at a cost ot 5 per step) Of course, there are many other actons (aiming firing various weapons picking up dropping objects etc) available in what is a very effective raleplaying system Once you re satislied with your soldiers' movements, clicking on the End Turn icon makes your computer opponent begin its turn sadly Iheres no two-piayer option As in Laser Squad there are different scenarios to play: tive in all.
Ranging trom a jungle POW camp rescue to a daring embassy assault. Only here you have to play _ them in a set order A different ? ' J view The mosl obvious ditterence tram Laser Squad is the use of isometric 3-D. The graphics are clear and well drawn, with the the ‘line ot sight3 feature implemented to the lull (nice piece of programming) However, the game has its drawbacks The main problem arises when it comes to Ihe computer's turn; you have to suffer quite a lengthy wait. This can be accelerated by holding dawn Ihe left mouse button, but there s still a frustrating amount ot time when
the player has no control and nothing to keep them occupied. Another (albeit minor) gripe is that there's no option to select a default team which would offer the option of jumping straight into Ihe action, without the tedium of time-consuming character selection Don't think tor a second that Sabre Team is a second-rate rip-aft of an original product.
Essentially, il builds upon foundations set by Laser Squad, but tails down in a tew small areas that may irritate some Try before you buy.

The press release didn't exacliy leave us I expecting wonders, describing the game as appealing to Irain and puzzle fans alike I Visions of anoraks and I notepads sprang immediately 1a mind' I Luckily, it owes more lo puzzles and intelligent thoughl lhan British flail, so all was smiles I for awhile at least In Locomotion, you [ have a number stations linked J together by sections of track, Some of Ihe latter can be manipulated to cut off certain routes, while making others more easily accessible. Every now and again, a I train will leave a slation. A letler indicating ils deslinalion You

Train a thought Complications occur when more lhan one train is in circulation at any given time. This is where real thought is necessary, because collisions are fatal and while you're still reeling from lhal, there's a light lime limit into The bargain. Fail lo gel your quota of trains into Iheir appropriate stations and ils game over.
That's about it. Really. For a lull price game, you'd expect a little more. Okay, so you gel a irack editor lor when Ihe existing levels have bored orfruslraled you, but a couple of inexpertly designed courses are hardly going to prolong your enjoymenl, L ocomoriorj would ave been ideal for budget release. As Irain puzzle games go, il’s probably Ihe best so lar, but full-price material it ain't. It makes British Rail sarnies look good VFM!

The Amiga is Ihe perlect home for Ihe thriller-orientated RPGyadventure genre and at last it seems somebody has done a little research and come up wiih Ihe goods. KGB knocks Ihe socks off nearly every game based on Ihis theme and more the characters behave like realr people, as opposed to cardboard culouts acting out badly written scripts Also, the wealth of oplions mean your approach can be suited lo your mood ai Ihe lime of play. For example in ihe beginning you're required lo question a ----- -------- suspecl namely the deceased s sisler If you wish to use heavy handed techniques to

Rather than being lumbered with the same car for every race, you're allowed to customise certain aspects to suil your needs Changing gearboxes has never been this much fun (or this easy) but it's great when you start the race to find your mechanical decision has paid oft.
You see. Changing things such as tyres and aerofoils atlects cornering, acceleration and lop speed. Getting Ihe righl combination to suit the current track gives you lhal all- important edge, allhough the default settings are good enough for Ihose wanting lo wade slraight into Ihe action.
Now. The criticism!
White Mansell s is a superialive driving game, there are still a few nagging glitches. For a start, it takes too long during disk access not tremendously long, but jusl enough to irntale. Secondly, it's just loo easy i The practice mode (allhough a nice touch) is pretty unnecessary, as the main game can be mastered in such a short space of lime. After my firsl four races in Ihe championship. I d won Ihree and come second in one, giving me a total of 36 points or the challenge table a full 21 clear of my nearesl rival, Nevertheless, the speed is astounding and.
Although the challenge is unsatisfying, the game otters great racing thrills. Pity there isn’t a two-player mode, Ihough we're kinda getting used to them... a TIP TIME! Here's a handy tip for Nigel Manse : have a shave, that moustache is nafU But seriously, use siipslreaming to get pasl the faster opponents.

Your first adversaries take the form of pulsating plants which gab great globs of gooey gloop at you!
Hang back, jump and fling your shurikans at the beggars you should manage to mangle 'em without losing ANY energy.
Jump up to collect the gold, but bn prepared to blat the baddies as you land no probieml After the gebllna have been dispatched, jog over to thie wheel and keep pressing fire until the platforms are Your very first puzzle! Leap onto t the platform, face the switch and I hit the fire button.
A. Hov presto, , up you ...like this.

When you reach this huge hog, lake care not to shoot Ihe door which keeps him at bay and run right, frantically shoaling everything that moves.
While avoiding any enemy fire, quickly select Ihe key and unlock the door.
Extreme caution Is required, as you'll need to leap up on the ladder hetare the hair hares down an you. II you're quick enough, you can drop down and follow it, tittering to yoursell as Maletoth s minions are |rT trampled into ¦ t the ground!

Gold and discover Ihe I way up.
The grenades make short work ol these lethal gun-turrets SO Jump, dodge and throw lor your life until you leach the key which is an the laurlh and (Inal floating platlorm.
Pause “ only long enough to shoot the roasting meat off the spit... ...and as you continue right you'll automatically move the meat before you- Pick up the key as you pass... Now at the tap, keep pushing the haulder over to tho left... ...then deposit the enemy's would-he supper beneath Ihe spiky block esaclly as shown. Now dash hack to free the beast!
As you land atop Ihe platform, it iaamr heavenward through the shaft. Steer it left and right by walking la Its edges... ...enabling you to successfully Jump the gap!
...Just ensure that it’s not only on the left ol Ihe shaft, hut perfectly level to bool. The huge taoulder will now rise with you an the platform. It you muck It up, Just drop hack down the shaft and repeat the procedure till you get it right! Honestly, It's not that difficult.

ISSUE TWO ¦ JANUARY 1903 AF zrj XV XV ¦ Nal much la look al, perhaps, bul two- player Tank Attack la a hint and a hall.
Slirvla but effective, name day all PD etc. Tank Attack is a 'tribute' to Combat (an old Alaii game) but ralher lhan just making an ioenlical version, the progiammers have soupec up Ihe gamep’ay. New lealures irclude a laurplayer option, multiple power ups and a myriad ol differenl screens to lighl tiierds on.
Polenllally Ihe best game on Ihe pack. Tank Attack tails down because ot the lack at a one- player option.
Croak Is described on ils lit.e screen as an Amphibian Migration Game'. I’ve never heard Frogger relerred In as this belorel As wilh Woufh-fWan, This is a very good (it not better) version ol Ihe old com-op, but al the end ol Ihe cay Ihis is ancient software with lairly imited appeal.

Flounce And Blast s by tar the best game on the pack. Wilh graphics and gameplay better than some commercial budget releases, it scares highly in the ever critical eyes al the AMIGA FORCE team. A piattorm romp wilh mullidirecliona scrolling, progressive power- ups and a mean difficulty curve, itd be worth order ng on its own. With lhal in mind, it's our duty lo inform you that it is Shareware and that Ihe programmers have some great offers tor those scrupulous enough to send their £5 registration lee Believe us, it's worth every penny.
Duck is the weak link in the compilation. It s a lairly poor rendition ¦ Bounce and Blast undoubtably Ihe beil game Included In Pack Three.
I| Following (and righ, on duplicating) Tank Attack comes Quick Money, a scrolling splil-screen version While its pretty much the same game in essence, 1 somehow manages to be a ol ess satisfying. Maybe Ihal's because the programmer has tried to compl cate a simple concept, but as a stard- alone Pn game, il s really not lhal had. A special mention musl go lo ihe exce lent para la* scrolling impressive stuft tor Iree software ¦ Oh No! If ¦ an awful AatercidB clone featuring out little blue & green chumg!
