YOU'.' FEEL THE NEED FOR SPEED... If you are an absolute Fractal freak, dabble with the odd Ray-Tracing package, an expert at 3D-modelling, or simply well into showing off the Amiga’s multitasking ability, then perhaps you could do with the Progressive ‘040. This impressive unit brings the high-speed processing power of the leading-edge Motorolla 68040 25MHz CPU to your Amiga 2000 or 3000. An Amiga equipped with the Progressive 040 will operate at six or more times the normal speed of the normal A3000, or about 35 times over the standard A500 machine. The cost is roughly £1500 for the A3000 version, and £1900 for the A2000 board. Motorolla rates the 68040's performance at a staggering 19.2 million instructions per second which is faster that most large Corporations' mid-range and main-frame computers. Further info is available from Marcam Ltd tel: 0604 790466 . THE CHAOS KIT... Coming soon from American- based Seven Seas Software is Mathvision. Mathvision basically arms you with a suite of elaborate and optimised functions for the rendering of the highest quality fractals, Ray-Tracings, and 3D models that you are ever likely to see on an Amiga. Although the manual is heavy going, the software is top-notch, utilising Arrexx to the full. How it will compare to Vista Pro remains to be seen, but expect a full review very soon.. GRAPHICAL FINESSE... The 31st of October saw the greatest gathering of computer animators you’re ever likely to see, as they awaited the results of the Computer Animation Festival Awards. Held at The Odeon, Marble Arch, the general public could experience many of the sequences up for awards first-hand, with such impressive showcases as a CAD-designed depiction of a redeveloped Barcelona, and the effects of gravity on faraway moons. It was nice to see the many uses that animation has, and far from being just a series of very clever effects, the possibilities for education and research are now being thoroughly exploited. Of the 200 animations on display, notable winners included 'The Astronomers', by Jeff Kleiser and Diana Walczak, and the impressive animation used on Saturday morning’s Motormouth.

the full in December and January with four new Mickey Mouse educational packages hitting the streets.
Mickey Puzzle, Colours, ABC and 123 are aimed at educating whilst entertaining. To keep the kids happy, an animated puzzle adventure starring all their favourites from Who Framed Roger Rabbit appear to spice it up a little. For the more mature of us, Disney's novel Stunt Island allows you to stage and film your own stunts. Choreographing, placinq cameras, directing and editing are all features at your finger-tips, as well as an option to put your stunts to music.
¦¦¦ Walt A Laugh, As Infogrames Take The Mickey With Their Disney Licences... ¦¦¦ Master Stereo Sampling With Microdeal... ¦ «* Readysoft Unveil Their interface might be for you. The board previously retailed at £145 and is now being sold for an offer price of £49.95. The dramatic price reduction has been attributed to overwhelming sales in the past which have enabled the huge reduction.
The interface slots into the expansion slot below the Amiga far out of sight. The 0.5 Mb upgrade doubles the Amigas memory to 1 Mb. Using the board’s hard disk controller any ST506 compatible drive can be added and the battery backed up real time clock memorises the correct time when the machine is turned off. The DMA allows data to be transferred between the peripheral device and the internal memory without interven- tion.by the central processing unit. This leaves the computer free to perform other tasks.
UPGRADE AND REGRADE If you’ve always wanted to enhance the performance and flexibility of your Amiga, Cumana's COM-201 RAM and ST506 hard disk controller and COLUMBUS CHALLENGE Matthew Shbbe. Author of 'Nam. Has teamed up once more with Putney-based Domark; this time to put together a strategy adventure set across Europe, the New World, and on the high seas. Set in the late middle ages, the game simulates the exploration, trading and empire building of the period. The player will be able to split between roles and direct every aspect of a pioneering exploration sim. It's currently mas
querading under the name, Columbus, and will be available mid 1992.
SOUND REASONING Microdeal announce the release of their new sound sampler, Stereo Master. The editing suit comes complete with real time record and play, cut or delete of sampled effect, mixing, fading in and out, special effects options and a plethora of other features. The Stereo Master is available for £39,95 and Microdeal guarantee its computability with all its other products and those to come.
CYBER'S ACE Currently swirling through the tubes at Empire is Cyberspace. Inspired by the Cyberpunk novels by William Gibson, and owing a little to our own CU crew who suggested the licence, Cyberspace concerns the fantastic lands and times of such sci-fi classics as Blade Runner, Mad Max and Tron. High-tech street punks and futuristic hackers roam huge computer networks by using high technology and direct implants to their brains. Once inside their Id explores the new computer universe called Cyberspace. The game utilises vector graphics and 3D bit mapped images and is based on the
technology used for the acclaimed Team Yankee. It’ll be out in the new year.

SPACE BOUND Not content with supposedly revolutionising cartoon animation gaming with Guy Spy, Readysoft have also found time to complete the long-awaited Space Ace II - Borfs Revenge.
Featuring full-screen animation and digitised sound. Space Ace II starts off just as our hero Ace has turned the evil Borf into a baby, but the Goons, his dastardly henchmen give him another blast with the infamous Infanto Ray and bring him back to full size. Once again, the game is a real visual showcase, but whether or not Readysoft have improved the gameplay is doubtful. However, as it is based on more scenes from the coin-op it is doubtful that there will be 'full' interaction.
STEG Codemasters step into the Christmas circus with Sleg. The game involves an extremely cute slug, surely a contradiction in terms, in gorgeous cartoon graphic adventure. Steg has been hard at work having babies, T'yungunz, in the dank underground caverns. Your task is to keep the offspring alive as long as possible by feeding them. Steg can slime across ceilings, up and down walls and even blow bubbles and he does all this in order to trap the bugs he needs for food. Steg should be around for Chrimbo.
PSYBORG Loriciel could be making A bid for the title of most originally addictive puzzle game since Tetris with their latest release Psyborg. The goal is to race along inside a space vortex covering the various tiles and dodging the gaps whilst picking up points and bonus features. There are a choice of eight planets to pick your wits with and 32 worlds along the Vortex walls. GUY SPY Just when things appeared to be deathly quiet on the Readysoft front, news breaks that a new game from the programmers who bought you Wrath Ol The Demon and worked on those Dragon's Lair series have been hard
at work on another graphic monster. Guy Spy is a beautifully-drawn arcade adventure which is apparently more involved than past Readysoft games, and boasting tons of action. Unlike its cousins, you have full control of your animated character. The game follows the exploits of a top secret agent around the world as he uncovers foul deeds and evil characters. Stay tuned. RACE DRIVIN' Just around the bend and careering towards local stores is Domark’s Race Drivin’. The sequel to Hard Drivin' II, the game has a strong stunt theme and enables you to corkscrew loop, jump and get to grips with a load
of other obstacles.
The game is based upon the brilliant Atari coin-op. Faster microprocessor and more efficient software code provided a new time lag between control input and screen graphic response. Race Drivin', the coin-slot version, felt even more like a real car. Whether or not the home-bound counterpart will match up to this remains to be seen AIR, LAND AND SEA Air, Land and Sea is a new compilation from EA and contains Indianapolis 500, 668 Attack Sub and F-18 Interceptor. Interceptor, despite its age, is still one of the most playable flight sims around and gives the player a choice of flying the F-16
Falcon or the F-18 Hornet defending San Francisco Bay from attack. It’s out now and can be picked up for £34.99. CHIPS CHALLENGE After months of development, Ocean believe they have found the solution to every software house's nightmare - namely, software piracy.
Rumours of a special chip that will somehow be attached a normal disk are being circulated, but Ocean are being extremely tight-lipped about it. According to our source, the chip has over 50 separate levels of protection that, after two solid weeks hacking by an Ocean programmer, would only yield one level of clearance. The addition won’t cost the customer any extra, we are informed, and will be on a trial period before it is used on all Ocean games, the first of which LOOK AND LEARN Mandarin’s incredibly popular Fun ft School series has now reached fourth base. Fun School 4 is split into
three distinct age groups, with seperate packages for the under 5s, 5-7 year-olds, and 7-11 year-olds. Each package expands on themes started by the first three in the series, but now sport more detailed sound and graphics to attract the user's interest more. The packages are out now, and will be fully covered in the next issue of CU.
, x BATTLE STATIONS Entertainment International have two fresh titles in the works and set for a January release. Campaign is a strategy war simulation with the emphasis being on the tactical and planing side of warfare. Whilst Pacific Island is firmly in the same vain, it is the official sequel to the incredibly successful Team Yankee which concerned the Russians invading America and the commencement of World War III. Pacific Island will incorporate tank simulation, guerrilla warfare, aircraft combat and sea manoeuvrers. The original sold over a quarter of a million copies so the follow up
should be something to watch out for.
ROC AROUND THE CLOCK Silica Systems are shortly to release the sequel to RocGen Genlock. The unoriginally-named RocGen Plus leatures all the abilities of the original, butnow supports RGB, optional Chromakey, and better image-mixing facilties amongst others. In addition, the basic unit has been stripped down and better component parts used for increased reliability. Priced at £149.95 it will be available by the time you read this.
ANTS IN YOUR PANTS Don't quote us on this, but word has reached us that veteran coder, Sandy White, is back on the scene. Sandy, who was the innovate brains behind that old Spectrum classic, 3D Anl Attack, is apperently, putting together a game plan for an Amiga update of the 1982 classic. Details are virtually non-existant, with the exception of initial ideas for a larger, more detailed play area and the title ot Super Ant Attack, but as soon as we get absolutely anything on this potentially exciting project we'll report further.
COLOUR CARE Due to break into the sunlight at the end of November is an extremely useful product from Care Electronics. Dubbed the Colour Kit, this handy combination of software and hardware will enable almost anyone with an ordinary black and white printer to print in full colour. Apparently tests that have been carried out on the Colour Kit proved it to be just as good if not better than some of its colour counterparts. Some typical prices for the kit are: Star LC10, Citizen 120D, Panasonic 1080 81, Epson LX80 £29.95. Colour Kits will be available for a wide range of 9 and 24-Pin printers
soon.
ARCADE HITS MARKETED BY LOCK ON '- C1990. 1991 SEGA~ All rights reserved. G-loc'* is o IrodemorV ol SEGA ENTERPRISES LIMITED SEGA “ is o Irodemork of SEGA ENTERPRISES LIMITED SCARY MONSTERS Kev Bulmer is currently hard at work on a new RPG for U.S. Gold. With the weird moniker of Monsterum Horrendum, the game is a massive RPG with arcade sequences thrown in for good measure. The main bulk of the game is viewed in first-person perspective, with the backdrops made up of polygons. However, using texture-mapping, Kevin has added extra detail including intricate wood panelling and ironwork to make
the game more realistic to look at. Kevin's first original project for ages, the game is basically an extension of life, with the player cast as one of several creatures, and out to prove their mettle. On entering a city, for example, the player can do virtually enything. For instance, they can learn a trade, get in with crooks, become a labourer - pretty much anything! The game has been in development for coming on six months now, and Kevin is particularly excited about the prospect of an expanded CDTV version. 'It'll be brilliant', he enthused, 'it would have a real cinematic feel to it,
with loads of music and graphical sequences that the disk version couldn t contain. Monsterum Horrendum win be here next Spring.
HIS MASTER’S CHOICE Centresoft have linked up with pop music peddlers HMV to launch new departments in three of their emporiums. London, Reading and Southend are the chosen sights and Centresoft will be exclusively supplying software across all formats, but predominantly Amiga and ST. Plans are also afoot to expand the scheme around the country.
THE RETURN OF FUVBO?
Having successfully shaken off their Ninja image, System 3 are currently considering a sequel to their Screenstar-awarded Ftimbo's Quest. Although the idea is only at the drawing board stage, the basic idea would be to take the game into Mario territory with a larger, more varied task than the original, and with dozens of other game- styles incorporated into the main task.
Work will probably start as soon as Funball and Putty ate completed, and more news as and when we get it.
DON'T MENTION THE WAR!
Hot news straight from the recent computer show in Germany is that US Gold have signed to German strategy game developers Software 2000.
Renowned for their great presentation and extensive manuals, their first joint efforts will enter their initial stages in January '92 for general release around April. More details soon.
BYTE DELIGHT Eccentric omnivore Monsieur Mangetout will be adding a sample of his own special brand of table enqueue to the forthcoming Computer Shopper Show this December.
Mr Mangetout, credited in the Guinness Book Of records as the worlds most ambitious human dustbin, will be adding an entire computer to his menu which he will eat byte by byte. His diet has already included 10 bicycles, a supermarket trolley, seven television sets and six chandeliers! To date, his most remarkable eat, sorry feat, took place in Carracus where he successfully chewed his way through a Cessna light aircraft. Apparently, the only thing that can upset his amazing appetite are bananas and anyone who would like to test this theory can catch the man himself at the show which runs from
December 5 to 8 at Wembley Exhibition Centre.
IT'S A CORE-KER!
After the mighty Heimdall, Core's next foray into the world of arcade adventures will be called Zeloria. Written by Core's in-house team of Rob Toone, Rolf Mohr, and Jason Gee, the game is a flick-screen affair, with the screens viewed as if at the theatre, with the player's on-screen persona wandering in and out ot the play area. The scenario tells of a mystical and fantastic land, full of lost objects and witches - in fact.
Role of one of the Gods as he rallies together an army to oppose Loki's ever-growing ranks. Actual game details are scarce at present, but needless to say, you'll see it here first.
Zeloria is the land of the lost where all those loose socks and TV remote controls go.
Also, back on the Heimdall front, Jer and partner Ged are just about to start work on a sequel, based on the ensuing battle of Ragnarok. There's no real news as of yet, but the player will this time play the BEGIN A FANTASTIC NEW QUEST!

ARE YOU IN THE CLUB? PD Software is getting ready tor its biggest shake up since its introduction. Major PD companies are flocking together to form their first 'union'. The PDS. (Public Domain Standards) have already been fully endorsed by Commodore themselves as the official suppliers of qualify PD. All houses that join the group will carry the distinctive logo on their ads and thus guarantee the public value for money.
All members must adhere to eight requisites. Libraries must discard all pornographic material on disk, demos that contain bad language must carry a warning sticker, libraries must have been trading for at least six months before they can join (this is the period when most P.D. companies go bust), they must have a fully manned phone and not an answering machine (in order to weed out the part time libraries), they must operate a helpline for customer problems, have to accept credit cards, must guarantee virus checked disks (easily done as a co-member of the group is the Virus Research Clinic who
will be issuing all the necessary equipment to members) and all companies must process orders within 24hrs. This sounds like very good news to PD users as the shoddy companies will be driven out of business and PD will become fully respectable. A minimum price for disks will be 99p, but could rise to £2 to cover costs. A number of companies have already joined and any libraries wanting more information should contact John Dudley at Essex Computer Systems on 0268 55363.
Shapes and sizes that have to be rotated Tefris-style and slotted in. Ramparts will be available in January 1992.
Although we are still waiting for the likes of Hook and Point Break to grace our cinema screens this year, Hollywood is already working on next years’ blockbusters. Hot on the heels of the forthcoming Batman II, that other well-known comic book hero, Spiderman. Is set to grace our screens once more.
Starring Aliens' star, Michael Biehn as Spidey Peter Parker, apparently Amie is set to assume the role of the multi-limbed Doctor Octopus with Robin Williams or Jack Nicholson as the Green Goblin.
Of course, at this early stage, there are dozens of rumours circulating regarding the film, but we have also heard a whisper that Mancurian moguls, Ocean, have already snapped up the rights for a game. In addition, we also have reason to believe that the software giants have also secured the rights to convert Tim Burton's Batman II over to the computer formats. Buzz reckons that this latter licence would be perfect for DID's Robocop lib style polygon graphics but only time will tell... RAMPARTS Ramparts, Tengen’s odd mixture of a shoot ’em up and Tetris, is now well into development. As with
most of the best games, fhe original coin-op was very simple, but utterty addictive. The game involves building walls around castle keeps and strategically placing cannons within them and destroying your opponents battlements. All destroyed bricks have to be replaced as soon as possible and come in all shapes and sizes that have to be rotated Tetris-style and slotted in. Ramparts will be available in January 1992.
POPULOUS EDITOR If you can’t wait for the release of Populous II, and if you’ve managed to see it in any form you really can’t wait, then a handy data disk might tide you over. Compatible with the first game the Populous Editor will allow you to tinker with most aspects of the game and also create your own lands.

But what about our European soulmates? After being used to coming away from UK shows virtually maimed in the crush of fellow users, it was a shock to see hordes of people queuing politely for their posters, badges and purchases, and the prospect of actually getting to see all the displays without being swept away by a tide of eager shoppers was a welcome relief.
More striking was that broadcast quality hardware, destined for professional hands in the UK, was being snapped up by ordinary European users. Are they bigger enthusiasts over there? Or just loaded? Four days of investigation left me none the wiser, but as Steve Kelly from the Bitmaps said: 'If the British thought they were into the Amiga they should see the Germans.’ A bustling crowd ot over 60,000 Amiga enthusiasts descended on this impressive exhibition hall over the 4 days spanning 31 October - 3 November this year and a good time was had by all.
As I tlew into Cologne, I couldn’t help thinking that the site alone promised great things, perched on the North bank of the Rhine overlooking the city. True enough, the three public days were living proot that the Amiga is big news on an international scale. The tour main halls were veritable Santa's grottoes stacked with professional hardware and software, PD and music kit, games and Hardware.
Two major stands stood out: Software 2000 and United Software.
Software 2000, Germany's largest strategic games software developers, showcased superior adventure games with some pretty wacky packaging.
Cathedral was eating up most peoples’ hard-earned Deutschmarks but you haven’t missed out. The company have signed to US Gold and will be developing new products for the UK in the new year.
United Software were_pulling the crowds with Thalion’s laiest offering of a highly accurate flight simulator of the Lufthansa A320 Airbus. The system is so advanced that if you master the realtime full flight mission, you can enter a competition to have a crack at piloting the real thing - apparently, it’s so close you'll have no trouble moving between the two, and winners will receive a special certificate. At this point, a worthy mention is also due for Virgin Games who had no trouble encouraging Amiga fans to check out their latest Shuttle simulator.
In the hardware hall, 19" rack kits were being snapped up by kids who didn't look strong enough to carry them home, but the prices were so good it was hard to resist. Amiga add-ons galore were on sale and a special mention goes to the 24-bit graphics cards irs imam,.
Martyn James returned from the Amiga ‘91 Show in Cologne, and wonders why our overseas counterparts seem to be more committed to the machine than us... being put through their paces with mind- blowing results.
The most exciting development I saw, though, was on the Toshiba stand. After producing CD-ROM units for the Apple series, Toshiba are now about to release a unit for the Amiga range. The unit is available as either an internal unit for the A2000 or as an external box for use with the others in the range - including the relatively humble A500. The units can play normal Cds and several on display were blasting out assorted well-known tunes. Even more impressive, some of the units were also running CD-TV games. Obviously, not all CD games will be able to run on these machines, but could
Commodore have a serious rival? The internal unit sells for an affordable £300, whilst the external is slightly dearer at £500, and CU Amiga offers you easy access to all the possibilities that your Amiga holds. Packed with a breadth of coverage beyond games, CU Amiga delivers • The ultimate peripheral coverage .

PC Review - available from all good newsagents .YOU'.' FEEL THE NEED FOR SPEED... If you are an absolute Fractal freak, dabble with the odd Ray-Tracing package, an expert at 3D-modelling, or simply well into showing off the Amiga’s multitasking ability, then perhaps you could do with the Progressive ‘040. This impressive unit brings the high-speed processing power of the leading-edge Motorolla 68040 25MHz CPU to your Amiga 2000 or 3000. An Amiga equipped with the Progressive 040 will operate at six or more times the normal speed of the normal A3000, or about 35 times over the standard A500
machine. The cost is roughly £1500 for the A3000 version, and £1900 for the A2000 board. Motorolla rates the 68040's performance at a staggering 19.2 million instructions per second which is faster that most large Corporations' mid-range and main-frame computers.

THE CHAOS KIT... Coming soon from American- based Seven Seas Software is Mathvision. Mathvision basically arms you with a suite of elaborate and optimised functions for the rendering of the highest quality fractals, Ray-Tracings, and 3D models that you are ever likely to see on an Amiga. Although the manual is heavy going, the software is top-notch, utilising Arrexx to the full. How it will compare to Vista Pro remains to be seen, but expect a full review very soon.. GRAPHICAL FINESSE... The 31st of October saw the greatest gathering of computer animators you’re ever likely to see, as they
awaited the results of the Computer Animation Festival Awards. Held at The Odeon, Marble Arch, the general public could experience many of the sequences up for awards first-hand, with such impressive showcases as a CAD-designed depiction of a redeveloped Barcelona, and the effects of gravity on faraway moons. It was nice to see the many uses that animation has, and far from being just a series of very clever effects, the possibilities for education and research are now being thoroughly exploited. Of the 200 animations on display, notable winners included 'The Astronomers', by Jeff Kleiser
and Diana Walczak, and the impressive animation used on Saturday morning’s Motormouth.
In all. There were twelve categories, comprising the latest Virtual Reality ideas, to promising student work and special commendations for new innovations. With computer animation getting more and more popular, it was apparent that TV has quickly jumped on this exciting bandwagon, with demonstrations of the Hale And Pace intro (where a large Shark swallows the two Rons), and the new Wogan and But First This intros. Interestingly, though, The Radio Times scooped this coveted award for their adverts introducing the inclusion of the other channels they would soon be covering. In all, the
Festival was a chance to look at some of the kit the ‘big boys' use, and offered an interesting insight into the world of animation.
Who knows, with the Amiga currently sporting a series of new boards to make it faster, maybe the gap between what appeared at the Festival and what we could be producing at home in a few years isn’t so great after all... woooRCooe n Daqs«nioi r Moonstone - a remarkable combination of fast, aggressive combat action and subtle role-play set in a fantasy world, that uniquely challenges your brain and your reflexes - while covering you in gore.
So o?acr» rao qotrixDie! • w Oh, by the way, if the sight of so much blood upsets you, don't worry. The blood is an option!

Stoke on Trent Staffordshire ST4 7SH DVERNMENT, TRADE AND EDUCATIONAL ORDERS WELCOME THE CU COLL THE GAMES DISK ON YOUR DISKS It's so incredible we can barely believe it ourselves, but somehow we've managed to squeeze twenty-one games onto a
single disk. A Toffee Crisp is spacious by comparison! Mind you, none of them are your toady old games that no-one wants to play - no Sirree! We've spent sleepless nights playing hundreds of candidates until we found the best PD games available, and there’s something for every taste... The disk is split up into four sections: Classic Challenge, Modern Masterpieces, Arcade Arena and Variety Vanguard. Classic Challenge contains versions of some of the best traditional board games, and Modern Masterpieces features contemporary classics. Arcade Arena is a selection of all-time favourite arcade
games and, bringing up the rear, Variety Vanguard is choc-a-bloc with games too zany to be classified!
AMIGA An inST AN GAM COUMCna CU proudly presents a games bonanza with a massive TWENTY- ONE full games on a single disk! Added to that, we’ve ALSO got our usual selection of useful and money- saving utilities. But that’s not the end of the story: you’ll still find our Screen of the Month there, but we’ve also included not one, but two incredible pieces of music from our Tune of the Month entries.
AMIGA AN instant k£a~ QAMiscotucnow CLASSIC CHALLENGE AMIGA Q Solitaire is one of the easiest games to play, yet the most frustrating to complete. Your objective is to remove all of the pieces except one from the board.
You start off with a single space in the centre of the board, and pieces are removed by jumping one over another into the vacant space beyond. The piece vyhich has been jumped will then disappear from the board. You can only jump into the space directly behind the piece you're jumping. To move a piece, click on it with the left mouse button, before clicking on the space you want to move it to. You can return to the main menu by selecting 'Quit' from the menu at the top of the screen. This one's guaranteed to frustrate!
I S K 2 2 BACKGAMMON Backgammon is popular world-wide because it offers a test of skill and strategy, yet can be played in less than fifteen minutes. Amiga Backgammon offers the same challenges, with the added bonus that you don't need to invite a friend around to play it.
You use the white counters and the objective is to remove all of your pieces from the board before your opponent.
The board is split into four quarters each consisting of six triangles. The bottom- left quadrant is your home base, whilst the computer's base is at the top-left.
The two right-hand quadrants are neutral territory.
Moving your pieces in a clockwise direction, you have to try and get all of your pieces into your home base, and then off the board. The computer moves anti-clockwise, and has the same objective. When it's your turn, two dice will be thrown in the left half of the board. The numbers shown on the dice represent the number of positions you can move your pieces. If, for example, you throw a six and a five, you could either move two separate pieces - one of them six spaces and the other five - or you could move the same piece eleven spaces around the board.
To take your turn, first click on the piece to be moved, then on the destination and it will be moved. When moving CU breaks new ground with its cover disks this month. Mat Broomfield guides you through a veritable wonderland of superb programs.
IF YOUR DISK WON'T LOAD?
In the unlikely event of your CU disk not loading, remove all external cartridges and peripherals and try again. If it still won’t load, pop the offending disk in an envelope and address it to: CU DISK RETURNS, PC Wise Merthyr Industrial Park, Pentreebach, Mid Glamorgan . CF48 4DR They will then test the disk and send a replacement as soon as possible. Ring the PC Wise Helpline for any urgent problems. It’s open between 10:30 a nd 12:30 during weekdays and can be reached on: (0443) 693233 Whilst CU Amiga makes every effort to check cover disks for all known viruses, we can accept no
responsibility for possible damage caused by viruses which may have escaped our attention.

Uld protected, and you can’t land on it as part of your move. If there’s only one piece on a triangle it’s vulnerable, and if your dice roll enables you to move one of your pieces onto that space, the computer's piece is removed from the board and placed onto the bar (the strip dividing the right and left halves of the a piece tor the total of two dice, you must move it in two separate stages representing the first number and then the other.
Unfortunately, that's not all there is to it! When the computer has more than one piece on a triangle, that triangle is board). The computer can’t move any more pieces until his ’captured’ piece is finally brought back onto the board. It’s possible for you (or the computer) to capture several pieces over a series of moves, thus making it difficult to resume normal play.
If you consider that the home bases are numbered from one to six, counting from left to right, a ’captured’ piece can only be brought back onto the board in a vacant or vulnerable location within the enemy's home base. A throw of one would enable the captured piece to come back onto the board at the far left triangle, provided that location isn’t 'protected'.
To complete the game, you must first get ALL of your pieces into your home base, before you can begin bearing off. Bearing off is a flashy name for a straightforward process, and simply means removing pieces from the board according to your dice rolls. If you throw a six, you can remove a piece from the sixth position (counting from left to right). If you throw a high number, but there are no more pieces in that position (or higher), you may remove a piece from the next lowest position.
If you throw a double, you may use each number twice, giving a total of four moves. If you find yourself in a position where you can't move, either because you have trapped pieces on the bar or all of your possible moves are blocked by protected pieces, click on the dice to end your turn.
The main art of playing Backgammon is to move your pieces around the board, causing as much trouble to the opponent as possible, whilst leaving yourself vulnerable as rarely as possible.
CHINESE CHECKERS This six-player game is a stimulating variant on Draughts. When the game has loaded, you'll be presented with a star-shaped board containing six coloured zones, each of which is filled with pieces. The object of the game is to move all of your pieces from one zone to the one at the opposite side of the board, forming the same pattern in that zone as they did in your own.
The board is divided into triangles, and the pieces move along the edges of the triangles, landing on the vertices (corners). A piece may be moved one position in any direction, unless it's jumping. Pieces can jump any adjacent piece on the board, provided the position beyond is empty. Multiple jumps can also be made when the arrangement of pieces is such that having landed from one jump, another is immediately available. As long as this is the case, the player can continue jumping.
To actually move a piece, all you have to do is click on the piece to be moved and on the place that you want to move it to. Before you start playing, you'll need to tell the computer which of the players is human, and to do that you'll need to go into the Player menu at the top of the screen. Once there, you'll notice that all six players are listed by colour. If you move the cursor on to one of these players and release the mouse button, the computer will toggle between human and automatic control. A tick means that the computer will control that colour.
You may also want to set the com- puter's skill level if it's controlling any of the pieces. To do this, go to the Level menu and select the difficulty level that you require ranging from one (easiest) to seven (most skillful).
GO MOKU The player's objective in this ancient two-player game, is to place five stones in an unbroken row with players taking it in turns in placing stones. To place a stone, simply point at the place you want the stone to go, and click the left mouse button. If you're having difficulties, you can ask the computer to suggest or play your move for you by clicking on the options at the side of the screen.
PEG PUZZLE (THE TOWER) The object of this simple puzzle game, is to move all of the pieces from the left- hand peg to the one on the right so that they form the same pyramid shape. The only rule is that you can't put a larger piece on top of a smaller one. To move the pieces, click on the required disc with the left mouse-button and hold the button down whilst you drag the piece to its destination.
MODERN MASTERPIECES AMIGATRATION This simple memory test game is ideal for younger children. Based on the card game 'Fish', the objective is to locate all of the matching pairs of pictures by remembering which pictures have previously been revealed. The size of the playing area can be altered by clicking on 'Size' whilst the number of players can be set by clicking on the number beside the ‘Players’ option.
When you begin, the board consists of a number of blue rectangles. By clicking on any two of these, two pictures will be revealed. If the two pictures are the same, they'll remain face up and the player will receive one point. If not, they'll be covered up again ready for another attempt.
DILEMMA This enjoyable and addictive game demonstrates the sort of quality that can ' be produced using AMOS. From the intro screen you can increase or decrease the starting level using the left button, whilst the right mouse button takes you into the game. Your aim is to fit all of the specified pieces into the green grid at the centre of the screen so that no spaces or pieces are left over. At the start of a game, some of the pieces at the bottom of the screen will have numbers above them. These are the pieces available for that round, and the numbers tell you how many of each one are
available.
Click on a piece to select it, and if you change your mind click on ‘Piece to Bank' and the shape will be returned to the store at the bottom of the screen.
Once selected, the pieces can be flipped, mirrored or rotated before being placed on the grid. The game is played against tthe clock, and the amount of time remaining is indicated under 'Bonus' at the top of the screen. And the levels gets progressively larger and harder to fill. Press the CTRL and C keys simultaneously to quit the game.
KAMIKAZE CHESS This game presents you with a stimulating inversion of Chess in which the objective is to lose all of your pieces before your opponent-does.
Kamikaze can be played by two humans, or against the computer. All of the pieces behave normally, bar two additional new rules. If a piece can be taken, it MUST be taken, and there’s no such thing as Check or Check Mate. In fact, the King cannot be sacrificed until all the other pieces have been lost, but in the mean-time it should be kept out of the way so that you’re not forced to take anything with it.
TIC TAC TOE Noughts and Crosses is perhaps the simplest game in the world to play, but this version adds another dimension - literally! Tic Tac Toe is played on a four- tier board, and you have to place four pieces so that they form a line. The line can be vertical, horizontal, diagonal, up, down or any combination of these. To play a piece, point at the square you wish to occupy, and click the left mouse-button. To restart the game, select ‘New Game' from the 'Actions' menu.
Incidentally, the computer will highlight the winning line.
UP AND DOWN Rounding off our Modern Masterpieces is a neat version of that brain stretching game, Connect Four.
Counters are dropped onto the board from the .-I lop, where they slide down until they hit either another counter or the bottom of the board. All you have to do is place tour counters in a straight row, either vertically, diagonally or horizontally.
To take your turn, just click on any of the spaces at the top of the board. Up And Down can be played by two players, either human vs human, or human vs computer, and you can select these from the ‘Project’ menu at the top of the screen. Switching the speech off from the 'Sound' menu will greatly speed up the game.
ARCADE ARENA AMOEBA INVADERS What can one say about Space Invaders? This version is faithful to the original game and contains all of the elements that made it such a hit. All you have to do is survive and stop the aliens from landing, which they'll do if you take too long to kill them. As you progress, each successive wave of aliens will start a little closer to the ground.
BALLY III Another popular game from the dawn of arcade history was Oix. This version offers several enhancements over the original, the most obvious of which is its lightning fast playing speed. Using the joystick, you have to 'carve up’ the pitch into sections. Each time you create an enclosed section, it will be coloured blue. Every level has a target percentage which you must try to fill in.
Of course, it's not quite that straightforward because the pitch is patrolled by 'bouncers’ which will kill you if they bump into your trail while it's yellow.
Rushing around the perimeters are 'seekers' which also try to bring your career to an untimely demise. If you try to turn back and retrace your steps you'll instantly lose a life for cowardicel COSMOROIDS Wandering around in space, you find yourself floating in the midst of the asteroid belt. As a result, you've got to blast the rocks and stay alive in this excellent arcade conversion. Moving the joystick up will engage the drives of your ship, and hitting fire will unleash a burst of explosive death for any hapless rocks that stray into the line of fire.
In special emergencies, pressing the space bar will engage your hyper-space drives, instantly teleporting you to another part of the screen. Be warned, however, you could find yourself tele- porting out of the frying pan and into the fire!
MISSILE COMMAND A superb conversion of another old fave.
Using the mouse you must defend your bases by firing missiles at the invaders.
Press the left button to shoot but as your supplies are limited, make every shot count. Start the game by pressing 1 or 2 to indicate the number of players, or Escape to return to the main menu.
VARIETY VANGUARD CIRCUIT WARS This fascinating and original strategy game places up to four players in an electrical arena where the object is to drain your opponents’ power until they die. The game is played on a grid upon which a variety of electrical components can be placed, the most basic of which is a circuit. To wipe out the opposition you'll need to build a network which enables your Runners to reach them.
The game is played in three phases: the action phase when new pieces are played; the movement phase when Grid-runners are moved and switches are opened and shut; and the power-up phase where players regain crucial energy according to the extent of their network.
Due to the size of the instructions, we're unable to give you a full player's guide here, but if you use the PPMore option on disk 23, you can load the instructions from disk 22. They're in the 'Docs' directory of the disk, along with complete instructions for many of the other games.
DELUXE HAMBURGER This is a strange shoot 'em up for people with a food fetish! There's only one simple rule to follow: if it moves, blast it!
Can you make mincemeat of the enemies or have you had your chips?
EGYPTIAN RUN We couldn't target all the driving game tans out there could we? Using the joystick to steer through the pyramids, use the mounds to jump into the air, but be caretul as a pyramid up the exhaust pipe will put paid to your desert rallying days I MATCH PATCH This enjoyable game is undoubtedly one ot the best arcade offerings available in the Public Domain. Using your joystick to guide the character around the screen, you must kill the baddies. Each of the monsters is made from different elements and you'll need the exact weapon to kill them. You can change weapons by falling
through the appropriate exit at the bottom of the screen.
You'll reappear at the top, but watch out that you don't land on some psycho monster. Also, the monsters mutate if you shoot them with the wrong weapon.
For example, shooting an ice monster with a stone weapon will change him into a storm demon.
MIRRORWARS This unusual blaster pits you against a joystick-wielding friend in an explosive strategic shoot 'em up. Each player controls one of the two spaceships at the top and bottom of the computer screen.
The player's objective is to blast his opponent before he's on the receiving end of such a volley but this task is made more difficult by the strip of mirrors which runs across the centre of the screen. These mirrors deflect the shots and, more often than not, you'll find the salvo of shots that youjust fired bouncing back towards you, so caution is required. As you continue to play, the mirror grids become more and more complicated, and you'll find it increasingly challenging to predict the course your shots will take. Up to ten shots can be fired at a time by keeping the fire button
pressed down.
STEPZ If you remember the old chess board game of 'Fox and Geese’, you'll be familiar with what to do in Stepz.
Starting at the bottom of a checkered board, you must try and guide your piece to the top of the screen without getting caught by the ‘Guardians'.
However, the Guardians are rather stupid and can only move in one direction, and this is indicated by a large arrow.
To begin playing, select the difficulty level using the mouse (1-easiest). You'll then be prompted for a starting position, and the squares are numbered from left to right. Having selected where you want to start from, move your piece using the four arrow keys at the top-right of the screen. If an arrow bumps into you, you're caught and you'll have to start again.
TUMBLING TOTS Help! The building's on fire and there are hundreds of defenseless babies inside in need of rescue. Fortunately,, the fire brigade is on hand to help. All you have to do is catch the kids as they're thrown out of the window. Due to an oversight, the ambulance is a little way away so you'll have to bounce the nippers along until you reach it. Press space to begin the game, then use the ‘6’ and '4' key-pad keys to move the firemen left and right.
Well, that's it. Twenty-one super PD games on a single disk with something for everyone, I think you'll agree. Keep a look out for future games disks - we’ve still got plenty of surprises in store.
I S K 2 3 THE UTILITIES DISK Games are great for a spot of relaxation, but here's a selection of stimulating utilities. That's why we've put a great selection of them together on disk 23 which is guaranteed to save you a small fortune.
Before you start, you should take note that after exiting some of the programs on the disk, you'll need to press the Shift and Escape keys before continuing with your selections. If you want to switch the tunes off, press the right mouse button.
TUNE OF THE MONTH 1 This excellent up-tempo tune (which you can hear while the disk is loading), was composed by Kristian Kalevi Kuovo of Mustio in Finland. It features tons of great samples which you can rip out using Prolracker 1.1 or higher. I particularly like the James Brown guitar.
TUNE OF THE MONTH 2 On a quieter note, Patrick (Dexter) Glasby's 'Fantasy' demonstrates that it doesn't have to be loud to be successful. Paul, who comes from Portsmouth, has created a gently rolling tune that incorporates the best of classical music with a catchy modern drum beat.
Please note'. Due to the large size of both tunes, you may have to reset your Amiga before loading them if you have loaded any other programs from the disk before-hand.
Both 'Tune of the Month' winners will receive a free CU subscription.
CLIP ART In the Clip-Art directory of the disk, you'll find a fantastic selection of Christmas clip art. The images can be loaded into your favourite art package and coloured in to form a Christmas card. Peter Lee's art tutorial last month will help you create some stunning and original results.
Alternately, you can load the clip art into any DTP package that accepts bitmapped images. You could then incorporate them into a Christmas newsletter or report.

There are thirteen video spine labels on a standard sized page and to use them you only need to select the text gadget and alter clicking in one ot the boxes to select it, type the title of the programs on the tape.
Best results will be produced if you select Text Style Bold: Size 48: Justification Centre Justified. If you want to put more than one title on a label, set the text size to 18 and you can put one title below the other. Due to their size, there are ten main video labels to a page, and by changing the font pitch (size) you can fit up to five lines of text on each one.
The cassette inlay page is divided between four inserts, which are themselves divided into two halves.
This is so you can list the items on each side of a cassette without having to spend ages messing around with page justification and text offsets. Although you can use any size font you like when listing the tracks on each side of a tape, I find that an 8-point bold Triumvirate font looks best. If you own the font, Clarendon in a bold 18- point is very attractive for the side titles, but you'll have to set a top margin (of the text box) to make it fit neatly.

3.5 inch disk labels. They're not designed to wrap around the
disks, but merely to cover most of the face. This means that if
you colour code your disks, the coloured portion of your plain
labels will still be visible.
Yet again, the template allows you to create ten labels at a time, and these are divided into halves for neatness if you have a lot of titles on your disks. There's no ideal font size, although Triumvirate is the best style to use if you're going to be printing at smaller sizes.
You'll notice that there are only two title bars. The reason for this is that, when labelling, it's likely that you'll be dealing with many disks of the same type at each sitting (PD utilities, back-up copies, data disks or MpP kJgt Mgi* hW|i hi" Vf w, Wgft !gW "'-S' A IN 1979 THIS WAS THE PHENOMENEN THAT SHOOK THE WORLD...

Because the margins and font sizes may be different for each type of disk, it's easier if you simply set up one title bar as you want it, then clone that eight times
rather than having to change the default settings for each title.

Computer animation reached new heights in James Cameron s Terminator 2, and is set to explore other avenues in Angel Studios' adaptation of Stephen King's Lawnmower Man. Can the Amiga ever hope to achieve such wonders? CU watches it bridge the gap.
Pretty sexy, eh? Most of the screenshots on these pages were developed by Angel Studios in California for a new feature film based on a Stephen King short story, the Lawnmower Man. But there's more to these images than perky pixels and cute colours - each one tells a few thousand words about the near future of graphics technology. Here's twelve hundred of them to whet your appetite.
The best news is that professionally- animated graphics like these don't simply rely on massive processing power.
What you see here is just as much the result of the steady refinement of new skills and techniques for creating computer-generated moving images. That means that your Amiga monitor could soon be benefiting from the lessons currently being learnt by the professionals.
Sooner or later, these techniques are going to change the images you see on your screen at home, even if the technology itself takes a little longer to catch up.
Even today, the graphics tools in use at, say, Lucasfilm's Industrial Light and Magic, Pixar or Angel Studios are spawning 2nd cousins within the home computer market - your own collection might feature Sculpt 4D or Deluxe Paint IV, for example. However, the skills to optimise packages like these are still filtering down into the Amiga development market as programmers and computer artists in Europe steadily acquire a whole set of newly-evolved techniques; vital skills without which the graphics we crave simply can't be put together.
So, what goes to make a photorealistic computer image? To the professional computer animator, the real world isn’t just a collection of objects to be modelled, rotated, scaled, and animated
- it's a vastly complex scenario that incorporates textures,
ranging from simple repeated patterns to chaotic surface
characteristics, all featuring different degrees of light
reflection or absorption; multiple light sources of varying
colour, direction and intensity; particle systems (water
splashes, for example) in which myriads of tiny objects
inter-react to create a single event; colours of varying hue
and luminosity. Get the picture?
Getting the graphic takes just a teensy bit longer.
The first step lies in the pre-production process - simply deciding exactly what the sequence is going to show. A client coming to Angel Studios, for example, will usually come armed either with a storyboard, artwork, or simply a verbal description. It's vital for an animator to get involved even at this early stage, as he or she will know what the technology can and can't do and, on a more specific level, the limits of their own proprietary software.
Ator if re The next step involves taking the objects in the scene and modelling them. An object model can start with a set of photographs, an artwork, or even a physical object. Take the human head, for example. Wandering around Angel Studios you'll see several snapshots of people who seem to have some sort of The bubbles have a lale lo tell here - they're a typical example of a simple particle system, In which numerous single elements have to obey related movement laws to achieve a single effect.
VIRTUAL SEX! Most of the pictures you see here come Irom The lawnmower Man - a new tealure Him due lor release in early 1992. The storyline tells the disturbing lale ol a doctor whose ambition drives him lo test his advanced learning and Virtual Reality therapy on a human being. The results ol this experiment lum a simple-minded gardener into a super-intelligent human being.
The Him Is unique because it features an extended sequence (over seven minutes in all) ol computer-generated footage, showing two ol the principal characters interacting within a futuristic ‘virtual reality' environment. They're not just playing games, either - stand by lor the first Virtual Sex sequence in cinema history.
Angel Studios, responsible lor the computer animation, worked lo a six month schedule lo complete the project, producing 70 seconds ol effects each month using lour animators. Iwo software programmers and an art director. The environments were created on Silicon Graphics computers using a combination ol Angel Studio's proprietary Scenix™ sottware and Wavetront. The Lawnmower Man is based on a tale by Stephen King, directed by Brett Leonard and produced by Edward Simons, previously responsible tor The Stud, The Bitch, and Howling III, IV, V. and VI.
Warpaint fetish. In fact, the geometric markings on their faces serve as guides to an animator who will later have to construct their facial anatomy and expression using polygons as building blocks. Dividing the area around the mouth, for example, into a network of triangles and then taking a sequence of shots as the subject smiles, provides an immediate reference for the transformations the triangles will undergo. Once these models have been constructed on the computer, the co-ordinates of each polygon can be stored to form a database from which the object can be reconstructed from any
angle.
Now we need to add a spot of life to our creation. The choreography of wireframe models is both technically and artistically demanding. Where it relates to real-world objects - the whale in the marine photograph on these pages, for example - this will almost certainly involve the animator in a prolonged study of film footage. Human movement is generally well-known to animators, but how does a monkey stand up? Even more problematic, how does the musculature in a dragon's jaw behave when it spouts flame?
Video games operate at a low enough level of detail to avoid these thorny problems - but an animator working on a The Running Man sequences are part ot a Virtual Reality environment within the film, which features realistically-animated computer representations ot the actors.

Alter motion comes colour and lighting. Having created a 'skin' tor each object, surface attributes such as colour and texture need to be defined and assigned. Sometimes, as with the models themselves, these can be captured from the real world (a gravel pathway, for example) and then digitised. Other textures may have to be defined as complex formulae to permit real-time recalculation during object movement or other transformation.
Light source shading is already familiar to home computer users - but most of the images we're accustomed to seeing COMING SOON TO AN AMIGA NEAR YOU?
This image comes from one ot the most exciting sequences in the Him, where the players indulge in a game ol CyberBoogie - a very last moving arcade type game played In virtual reality.
Players mount sledges' like the one seen here and negotiate a series of obstacle-strewn landscapes at very high speed. The shitting perspective, rapid action, and tight sound makes this a truly shirt-drenching experience!
And, just in case you'd like to have a go, there are strong indications that this sequence in the game is to be produced as a coln-op and possible also as a home computer video game product using Amiga technology. The ultimate game could soon be burning the phosphor on your own system - all details currently under wraps, but stand by for a CU exclusive on the game in the very near future.
Lengthy operation even on powerful machines and in animation work has to be done separately for each frame.
Feature a single source of illumination.
However, the varying reflectivity of surfaces in the real world effectively creates multiple light sources even where a single light generator is present. And, of course, each source can vary in direction, colour, and intensity.
So far, all these steps can be accomplished at low resolution. Data for all picture elements is stored in the scene database and at this stage the artist has to step back and let raw computer muscle transform this information into the final image. Rendering, as it is called, is a These frames are stored on hard disk and transferred directly onto video tape or film.

(0252-860-299) W9tBBSIUFF But, of course, not everyone can afford to - or even want to - experiment with abstract 24-bit colour shapes. Others prefer to aim for the pocket rather than the sky, perhaps with the thought of becoming a graphic designer for a leading games company in mind. Rik Haynes finds out that, for these people, good, old-fashioned manners, as much as brilliance, counts.... SUNSHINE ON A RAINY DAY These impressive visuals are the handiwork ol Toby Gard, a fresh-laced Essex boy straight out ol
Southend's art college. Filteen months ago, the Amiga provided his first steps into the world ol computer graphics.
Alter finishing an A-Level loundation course in art. He recently won second prize at the prestigious Edinburgh Computer Animation Festival run by Amiga Centre Scotland. Toby spent a little under three months drawing the 2,000 frames of atmospheric animation seen in Shadows.
Naturally enough, he needed a holiday alter all lhat hard work. He managed to get back Irom the Soviet Union a lew days before Gorby took his infamous summer break! Now he's got all that out ol the way. Toby is planning to send oft his portfolio to any interested software house. Call (0245 420312) If you want to find out more... Some puritans would have us believe graphics aren't that important, but most players wouldn't be interested in games if the sprites and backdrops look like they'd been drawn by colour-blind nursery school pupils.
That’s where graphic designers come into the, erm, picture. They fuel our visual journey to the fantastic lands seen in Heimdall, Dragon's Lair and Shadow of the Beast. Without the unique talents of these micro Michelangelos and light-sourced Leonardos, entertainment software would be pretty desperate and, by now, probably dead. So, what skills does the average artist need for the job and how much can they expect as a reward for such an indispensable contribution?
'Talent isn't enough,' insists Martin Kenwright, cofounder of Digital Image Design, one of Britain’s brightest software development companies. 'It's all down to conduct. We get so many young chaps coming to us who announce they can produce graphics better than those seen in ninety percent of games. We're normally very busy but we’ll always take the time to chat. The first twenty seconds on a phone can usually sell or expose a person. We reject nine cases out of ten. Overall, we're looking for professionalism and, preferably, some sort of training in art.'
As chief graphic designer behind the award-winning F29 Retaliator. Newly- unveiled Robocop 3 and Epic, Kenwright certainly knows all the pitfalls for people trying to break into the business. 'I learnt the hard way,' he confides, 'Judging by the usual mistakes made, originality and imagination are probably the two main things needed to succeed.’ The Bitmap Brothers are one group of games developers constantly complimented for their work, especially the graphics found in titles like the best-selling Speedball 2, Gods and Xenon II.
'Graphic artists and programmers are t equally as important in our company. Ideally, we’re after people who are adaptable,' says spokesperson Eric Matthews, 'You must be good at static background screens and animation work.
Animation is really the important thing. You've got to have some animation skills or you won't be able to cut it. Just show some versatility. Maybe a series of frames depicting a character walking, jumping, crouching, and so on.’ FISTFUL OF DYNAMITE There are a few simple guidelines to follow when creating and presenting your portfolio of sprites, backdrops and animations. Firstly, you must learn how to use DeluxePainl III or
IV. This popular graphics package from Electronic Arts is the
defacto standard among artists, designers and programmers
in the games sector.
Formal qualifications aren't needed but can help. Just play around and experiment until you think your artwork has reached a similar or superior level to those seen in games currently being produced by the professionals. First impressions are very important. It’s best to be original rather than devise improvements on previous work. Before taking the plunge, ask your friends for their honest opinions and perhaps some suggestions on what needs to be altered or totally deleted.
Always send your art on a single floppy disk with tiles compatible with the latest version of DeluxePainl. Never rely on a fancy video to sell your graphical genius. Image quality gets distorted on video and, think about it, how many people have a VCR in their office?
'Videos can be faked dead easy,’ confirms Kenwright. ‘There will never be any problem with your work being ripped THE WORLD! F CARTRIDGE IS I NOW WITH A JUST LOOK AT THE UNMATCHED RANGE OF FEATURES

WstiraSTUFT off if you contact a reputable publisher or developer. We've all heard of horror stories in the past but this never happens anymore.’ He adds: 'We like people who can do a portrait of someone in the newspapers, like John Major or Madonna. If you can send a 16-colour graphic of them and it's ot photographic quality, we'll go wild! Sprite-based animations should show your aptitude for games work. Not necessarily small sprites, they could be quarter-screen for facial movements or something. We'd also be after a full piece of artwork like a complete rendition of a landscape or
city. Not just a fantastic stand-alone object against a black background. That doesn't work, we've got to see how people actually compose their artwork. We can instantly tell how good you are. We had one guy who sent us four disks full of animations of a little green man. It was really good, it obviously showed he knew how the sprites should be laid out but that's a skill anybody can pick up.'
As Matthew previously mentioned, it’s essential to include some animations of at least one 'game character' performing standard moves, actions and tricks.
Sprites with a size of 32x32 or 16x16 pixels are generally used in such examples. Oh, that idea of sprucing up the graphics from an old C64 release.
Forget it. We're more interested in people who can produce original art,’ agrees Matthews. ‘We re keen to see how you contend with limitations, say, in terms of available memory and the amount of colours. However, we can train our people to get round these problems.’ Neil Young, producer at Croydon- based Probe Software, perhaps the busiest conversion house in the entire universe, is rather frank about this ability, or lack of it! 'If you can't animate a sprite, you're no use to us.'
Probe have been busy devising the.
Amiga adaptions of Alien 3, Smash TV, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 and SimEarth. According to Young, a software manager or producer should phone you within a week or thereabouts if they think your artwork is good enough. If they don't get in touch, call them and find out where you’re going wrong. Take any constructive criticism on-board, work on all your weaknesses, then try again.
FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE A successful graphic designer working freelance or full-time can earn anything from £7,500 to £35,000 a year. The sum largely depends on experience, track- record and reputation for sticking to deadlines. Anybody toying with the idea of joining the profession should take note of this final point. If it takes you six More than 2000 frames ol animation went in to producing Shadows, Toby Gard's entry lor the prestigious 1991 Edinburgh Computer Animation Festival. The short animation uses a successful blend of dart- colours to project an ominous overtone to the proceedings.
V months to draw a single frame of sprite animation, nobody is going to hire your services, no matter how good you are.
Most publishers and developers seem to try untested talent on a trial basis.
‘We’ll take someone on a trial period, paying them around £100 per week,' reveals Kenwright, 'We train up lads straight out of school, after no time at all they could be earning around £7,000 per year. If you're fresh off a degree course you could be looking at perhaps £9,000.
Someone at a higher level than that could get over £15,000 but they'd be in SPREAD YOURSELF II you think you’ve got the talent and courage to handle the challenge of creating graphics for games, here is a brief list of companies worth contacting... Bitmap Brothers (071 702 3644) Bullfrog (0483 579399) Core Design (0332 297797) Digital Image Design (0928 579975) Gremlin (0742 753423) Microprose (0666 504326) Mindscape (0444 246333) Ocean (061 832 6633) Probe (081 680 4142) Psygnosis (051 709 5755) charge of art direction, game design and storyboarding. We always insist that the programmers
and artists should get a cut of the profits because they do the bulk of the work. We also have bonus payments for beating deadlines. The way the industry is moving, there's going to be a great demand for artists in the years to come. Shaun Hollywood, for instance, was previously employed by a professional animation company doing television and film work. He's doing stuff that greatly surpasses our best expectations. Digital Image Design now employs more artists than programmers.’ Even if you possess all the relevant skills and get a few lucky breaks, don't expect fame and fortune to follow
you overnight. Berni, for example, one of the resident graphic designers at Gremlin - publisher of the successful Switchblade II, Utopia and Lotus II- doesn't feel graphic designers get either the financial or public recognition they deserve. A feeling I’m sure is shared among his fellow artists.
It you answered A, then you've found the true meaning of Christmas. As far as I'm concerned, you can keep Disney Time and the Bond movie; stuff the turkey too. Celebrate Amiga-style, and part of the fun is in sending individual Chrissie cards created on your beloved machine. How's it done? Put another choirboy on the fire, draw closer, and I’ll explain... Here's a Christmas quickie quiz: When you think of Christmas, do you see it: A - mainly as an excuse lor roasting marshmallows over an over-heated Amiga power pack?
B - the chance to eat so much you'll be sick?
C - a time ot tamily harmony marred only by arguments over Scrabble?
DRAWING ON TRADITION With Christmas trees steadily being replaced by Easter eggs, it's obvious that Christmas is a-coming. If money's tight, why not use your Amiga to create your Christmas cards? Peter ‘Bah Humbug’ Lee deals out some useful graphics hints and tips to show you how it's done.
BE A CARD Over the past few months I've been revealing secrets of the graphic artist - techniques used by the pros to give your Amiga art that extra sparkle. Now it’s time to pull the threads together, and, in true Blue Peter style, create something out of nothing. The beauty of making your own cards on the Amiga is that you can add your own touches of quirky humour, or modify existing artwork to give it a Christmas theme - it's also extremely cheap!
READY MADE Don't worry if your drawing skills are a little poor at present - we'll be finding out how to make some simple but effective designs relying mainly on a selection of fonts with little in the way of glitzy artwork. We'll also be taking a look at how you can beef up some of the images you may already have in your collection.
OLD CHESTNUT In fact, to ease into things, let's begin with a real chestnut: snow on text. The text needs to be of a good size - with characters of at least 3cm high. If you have only the Workbench fonts (WHY?
Get some PD fonts immediately!) You can easily increase their tiny size by clipping them out of your art package as a brush and increasing their size. To overcome the problem of jagged edges on the enlarged text, you will have to touch them up manually.
SNOW-GREY Using Dpaints shape fill brush (top right icon on the tool menu, lower portion of the icon), with a light grey selected froni the colour palette (no white just yet), you can easily 'coat' the tops of the letters individually to simulate snow. Use the white now to add highlights to your snowfall with the freehand one-pixel brush.
FLAKEY IDEA One neat way to add a small no-drawing-skill-needed item to your text screen is to use Dpaints symmetry tool, and, with a freehand brush, draw continuous smallish random strokes, and before you know it, you have a magnified snowflake.
COLOURED BALLS Where would Christmas be without them? They hang off trees and decorate almost everything. Luckily, they are also dead easy to get right in Dpaint. By defining a spread of similar colours, from light to dark (red, for example), and, making this your spread range, when you choose the filled circle tool and draw, you create a highlighted sphere. If you are lucky enough to have Dpaint IV, then the opportunity exists to add more realism by specifying a highlight point.
STRING ALONG Add a piece of twine to the top, and think about hanging it on the tree. The fir itself can be drawn as fussy or as simply as you like. The easy and adequate way is to use a large-sized airbrush, and spray sweeping stokes of three different coloured greens in the shape of a fir tree s- branch. Once you have done one, you can clip it as a brush, re-size it and flip it to save drawing any more. Just stamp the brush down to build up the required number of branches. The more subtle way is to again use your greens, but this time use the straight line tool and build up a bristle look
for the branch by drawing short, straight strokes before copying your work as a brush, and following the steps above.
CLAUS FOR CONCERN Santa may be a jolly fat tub'o’fun, but he can be a real pain to the artist. So here's a few tips to get you started. Make the BIRTH OF A TRADITION What's the origin of Christmas day? The simple answer is no one's sure - but three factors are said to have determined the precise timing of December 25th, which was fixed around AO 440. Since before recorded history, an important sun festival had been celebrated on or about that date. The baptism of Christ was celebrated in the first week of January, and generally became known as 'the spritual birthday’ of Christ. It was then
decided to mark his physical birth at the same time. But it wasn't until the 5th century that the format was standardised; but in any event, chances are 365 to 1 against it being the correct datel lace a reasonable size - around 3cm wide at least. Use only two tones for the features - light and dark flesh colours - as it's far easier to suggest a nose by drawing a shadow than to draw the curves and nostrils. Use the same two- colour shade technique for everything else. The beard and fur trimmings should be grey with white highlights and the tunic red with darker red shadows.
Two intensities of each main colour is all you need. Think minimal, and use an illustration as a guide as drawing from memory is prone to mishap.
HARD TO FIGURE Like Santa, the nativity presents a stiff challenge, but once again the two-colour rule still applies (light and dark versions of the same hue for faces and clothing).
However, these can be enhanced by resorting to the 64-colour half-brite mode for creating additional depth in the lamp-lit gloom of that Bethlehem stable.
PRESENT PERFECT No artist looks a gift horse in the mouth, and the variety of images freely available on the Amiga are at your beck and Go global with CU Amiga, definitely the world's best allround Amiga magazine.
TOUCHES Making a self-booting slideshow is not difficult provided you have the software to do it. Many display programs are available via the public domain (Picview and ShowWiz to name just two), and Dpainl IV comes with its own slideshow utility. Provided you have the right kind of software (DPainl III or later, Deluxe Video, Animagic, etc), you might consider adding animation or music to your disk cards. A simple symmetrically- drawn snowflake rotating in the X axis alongside your text gives a vefy pleasing result without too many memory-hungry frames.
SNOW FLURRY Or, by using colour-cycling you can animate a single frame so that it appears to be snowing; I did this by drawing one of those snow-storm glass paperweights with the flecks moving about. Or, you might just want to print out your cards.
Printers can usually cope with thin card, and although you will probably be printing in grey-scale you can liven up the finished product by choosing a brightly- coloured card.
Call. Use images such as King Tul or Venus for your own amusement; in the case of the Venus head from Dpainl II, I clipped it out, pasted it into a frame, and, in the twinkling of a halo, turned it into something quite angelic - which is ironic considering she is a pagan goddess. Likewise, if you have any digitised artwork you can give it a Christmas theme with only an ounce of imagination - how about Madonna as Santa, complete with beard and hat ?
HIGHLIGHTS Not everyone is into the religious aspects of Christmas, so a more up-to-date approach can give bite to your message. Tug a few heartstrings if you're that way inclined and promote those causes which you hold most dear. Christmas is not just about having a good time!

Electronic Zoo put on their Green Beret... THE GAMEPLAY: Assuming the role ot a hardened Guerrilla, the player has been sent on a series ot dangerous missions to infiltrate a jungle base and blow the place apart. Armed with a gun, a knife and your stealth, you must pad your way into the horizontally-scrolling territory and plant explosives at key parts of the base. In addition, without drawing attention to your antics, any guards should be dispatched Oh Christmas is a-coming and the Goose is getting fat, here comes Steve Merrett wearing his previewing hat... quickly and silently, and the
shrubbery and lakes can be used to cover your movements. However, if the enemy-catch sight of you, an alarm will be sounded and chaos will follow.
PLUS POINTS: An obvious update of Konami's Green Beret coin-op, Fireforce adds to the original idea of slashing your way through wave after wave of oncoming Gooks, by incorporating the need for stealth and cunning.
By diving into a puddle, the enemy will run straight past, allowing you to stand up and slit their throat as they approach. In addition, although blazing away with your gun brings instant death to all comers, it will also draw more attention to yourself.
BEHIND THE SCENES: There's been surprisingly little hype from Electronic Zoo regarding Fireforce, but the basic idea was to attempt a new slant on the Green Beret theme. From here, the idea of a more tactical approach was born, with the occasional bout of gratuitous violence added to help tide things over.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: The only possible problem Electronic Zoo may have with Fireforce is in its repetition.
Although there are several missions on offer, they don't vary a great deal. That said, from what we have seen, Fireforce certainly seems to play quite well - if a little slowly - and could be a welcome newcomer to the platoons of army games currently gracing the shelves. The game is almsot finished and is currently going through its testing stage and should be in the softshops sometime in January.
Brawn-free as Titus get all Brainie.
THE GAMEPLAY: The Brainies are an odd bunch ot critters who exist only to eat and reproduce. What’s more, the world as we know it has been overrun by these fluffy little Tribble clones, and before it collapses under their evergrowing weight, they must be steered into a time portal, effectively removing them from the planet. The player is thus given control over a Brainie-moving cursor which can be used to steer them from area to area but, as in such puzzlers as The Power, their movement continues until they hit a wall or something equally solid. Another problem is that the Brainies
come in four colours, and can only exit a stage via a similarly- coloured portal. Add to this a series of bombs and switch-related traps, and the fun really begins.
PLUS POINTS: Puzzle games are often criticised for their lack of variation between levels, but Brainies' many new features and taxing stages should ensure that this doesn't occur. The addition of newer traps and ideas are eased in very gradually so not to confuse the player, and the solutions to the puzzles are simple without being too obvious.
BEHIND THE SCENES: Brainies sees the first collaboration between Titus and France's most respected development team, Atreid Concepts. Atreid are the coding wizards responsible for the likes of UBI Soft’s Unreal, and they have also worked for Loriciels and Infogrames.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: With the puzzle genre currently brimming over with THE BRAINIES games claiming to rival Tetris in terms of originality, playability and simplicity, it would be easy to pass Brainies over as another colourful contender. However, with its massive and - more importantly
- interesting task, it could be that Titus are on to a winner.
FLAG Gremlin opt for strategy without the strategy!
THE GAMEPLAY: Flag intends to make wargaming a more simple, and easy to play affair. Played against a series of computer-con- trolled opponents, Flag quite simply involves buying up as many men and weapons for your army and capturing your opponents flag. However, as the game progresses more and more ideas are added. The player is initially armed with a limited amount of gold, with which they can stock up with grunt troops, more experienced soldiers, battering rams, and other such barbaric goodies.
From these armies, the player must then assign a suitably large army to attack your enemies without limiting your home guard. In addition, magicians can be recruited to perform a number of highly destructive spells.
All the action is played over a smooth-scrolling isometric landscape, with the positioning of armies and item selection effected via an icon panel, and individual soldiers can be singled out from here to perform special spying or assassination missions.
PLUS POINTS: Wilfully steering clear of the many options that Populous and Utopia use, Flag is going to be as simple as possible, yet, hopefully, deep enough to sustain interest. The protection of your flag and the taking of your enemy’s is the key to the game, and this seemingly simple task is bolstered with the addition of spies and armaments. In addition, Flags graphical presentation is well up to the standard of the aforementioned Populous and Utopia, with dozens of attractive intermission screens adding to the atmosphere.
BEHIND THE SCENES: Flag reunites iosf Patrol veterans Ian Harling and Simon Cooke. Whilst Simon has beavered away on the game’s code, Ian has been busy piecing together the many screens and animations, and linking together the actual game screens with their specially-written map editor.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Flags simplicity is a real bonus as it will attract people over-awed by Populous1 many icons, and should offer more than most arcade offerings in terms of depth and lasting appeal.
1URBO CHARGE System 3 get into gear THE GAMEPLAY: A satellite has been tapped by an evil dictator who is using it to locate the whereabouts ot secret Government arms bases. The despot then sends convoys of henchmen to the bases to steal the armaments within. With the dictator’s arms supply growing all the time, two undercover agents have been sent to destroy his convoys and strongholds and eventu- r bhbb mi _ ally take out the leader himself. Turbo Charge is another addition to the Chase HQ-style car game, with the player donning the Gucci shoes of the two suave agents as they chase the
convoys in their plush white motor. Thus, the game takes place over a fast-scrolling road with the action viewed in first-person perspective behind the good guys' car. You begin the game armed with a gun and a limited supply ot missiles, and the basic aim of the game is to race through the five zones in an attempt to intercept and destroy the convoy vehicles. Along the way, enemy cars and helicopters will attack, and only so many hits can be taken before you're run out of the game.
PLUS POINTS: The game is made up of ten zones, five of which are a race against time, while the others actually take place within the enemy's war zone. In addition, these zones take place across political powderkegs, such as South Africa, Iraq, and Cambodia with the backdrops changing to reflect the landscape of each area.
BEHIND THE SCENES: The Amiga version is in the hands of Mark Rochoter. As well as incorporating all the features of its 8-bit counterpart, Mark is also adding larger roadside objects than the original, and more dips and curves.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Turbo definitely has the speed but, at the time of writing, the roadside objects have yet to be added. These will obviously slow the game down slightly, but not noticeably, claim System 3. The potential is there for a Chase HQ beater, but the speed and variety will be the major factors in its success.
Silly puny Prepare to meet the most unusual hero ever to grace your Amiga’s screen. Is it a bird? Is it a ‘plane? No, it’s Silly Putty! Steve ‘Stretch Armstrong’ Merrett bounced along to System 3 to meet him.
| PUTTY GOOD ‘|| bounces, it snaps, it erases, it can mould itself into any shape - it's Silly Putty!’ Those immortal words introduced Britain's six to seven year-olds to the toy that went on to spawn dozens of clones and spin-offs.
What's more, in an even stranger coincidence, the young kid dressed up as a magician demonstrating the Putty’s amazing skills was none other than System 3's very own Adrian Cale. Thus, some fifteen years after the Putty was introduced, it is somewhat ironic that Master Cale is one of the driving force behind System 3's latest platform-based puzzler. However, the genesis of the weird topic came from the fertile mind of System 3's in-house development manager, Phil Thornton. ‘I got the idea whilst holidaying in India,' he opens, ‘but I had originally intended to create a game based on a
piece of elastic. As the idea progressed, though, elastic was to prove too limiting in its capabilities.’ Thus, the Silly Putty and System 3 connection came about as Phil opted for the Putty and interested the Pinner-based company with his idea.
On drafting his many ideas for the Putty's behaviour on paper, Phil's first task was to put together a conceivable demo from which he could team a more able coder to piece together the game's many intricate screens. To this end, Phil started to sketch out how he envisaged the game's look using Movieseller to display the proposed animations and ideas. This was eleven months ago, and Phil has since handed the coding duties over to ex-Cyberdyne Systems programmer, Dan Phillips, who started piecing Phil's idea together on a 286 PC using the PDS development software. 'It really helped getting the
animated demos together,’ continues Phil,' as I could go through the ideas with Dan and it also allowed us to have all the necessary graphics ready for implementation in the code. It allowed us to accurately gauge just how much memory each idea would need.'
IN DEVELOPMENT MOONING AROUND Phil's Puffy scenario is every bit as weird as the game's idea, and stars the stretchy Play-Doh looka- like as he attempts to thwart the dastardly plans of the evil Dazzle Daze.
This evil wizard has landed on our hero’s world of Putty Moon and sent his army of odd henchmen to gather together the many Putties and take them to his laboratory where... gasp!... they will be turned into bubble gum and shipped to Earth. Having been banished to Earth already by the King, you are their only hope, and the King has set you the task of climbing a specially-constructed tower until you eventually land on Putty Moon for a showdown with Dazzle Daze. Thus, Silly Putty is split into seven worlds based on individual themes, such as Toy Town, Egyptian World and, of course. Putty Moon,
and Dazzle Daze's henchmen are suitably attired to blend in with the surroundings.
These stages are in turn split in to a number of scrolling screens, which the player must guide the globular Putty up.
Unfortunately, though, the robots the King has sent to build the tower are being offed by the nasty henchmen, so for Putty to succeed he must not only reach the top of the screen, but save as many of the droids as possible.
Each area has a specific theme, including a very familiar toytown and a Blade Runner- esque city.
IN DEVELOPMENT To rescue the all- important droids, Putty can stretch himself across gaps or inflate himself to deflect their fall.
The nasties range from Sumos to chickens, but the evil Space Kid is the worst and kills you instantly.
Flexible friend Phil’s main aim was lo real pain,' he admits. We've managed ledge, the Putty can absorb any crea- nake the Putty as flexible as its rubber- to get the Putty to slop left and right, ture daft enough to pass over him. If the lased counterpart, whilst ensuring that move a little at a time, and expand, and creature's organic - one of the game's he game would still be easy to play and there are also loads more moves to Sumo-laying Chickens or snot-throwing ontrol. ‘Getting the balance right was a include which, hopefully, the player will Ogres, for instance - Putty's pliability is
be able to access via the joystick with replenished. It, however, the nasty is the minimum of fuss.' Such flexibility is metal-based, his pliability is reduced IT’S PUTTY TIME.. . Graphically, Phil had a set idea as to how he envisaged the game: 'I wanted to get a smooth coin-op feel without resulting to stippling,’ he says. 'In past games the graphics have never looked as smooth as they could, and l wanted to make sure that Putty’s graphics were smoothly coloured and made the most ol the available 32-colour palette.' All the graphics were put together using the ever-reliable Dpaint III, with
all the sprites completed within three months of the game’s development. With most ol them then ready lor animation, Dan could slip them Into his source code as and when they were needed.
Essential within the world of Silly Putty slightly but he can take on the swal- lis id ed n- d ancl ,0 reach the top of the screen, the lowed object's form and use its powers Putty can climb up or down between against their own kind, platforms, create a bridge between two I areas (which is useful for any robots that having a ball 'The nicest thing about I have been toppled from their ledges), the game,' concludes Phil, ‘is that I've I expand its size until it pops (killing any- proved a lot of people wrong. When I thing in the immediate vicinity), and had the Moviesetter demos, everyone jump

With 'All these movements depend on the the exception of an idea I had for split- Putty's "Pliability Rating", though.’ adds ting the Putty in two, everything I wanted Phil. Rather than lose a life instantly, has gone in.' All that remains now is for LimMmmmmIM the Putty relies on its flexibility and the all-important play testing, where Phil stretching powers.

061 834 0650 FLIGHTS OF FANCY Digital Integration are famous
for Ft 6, their classy flight sim of three years ago. Since
then they have released just one game. ATF2. In the meantime,
they've been beavering away on a flight sim which they claim is
set to revolutionise the genre.
TORNADO The Tornado GR1 is loud, large and currently being reduced to a mere 3.5 inches in size. Mark ‘Flyboy’ Patterson took Dl's new sim for a spin.
Tornado simulates the GR1, the ground attack version of the RAF’s fighter bomber. The only previous Tornado sim on the Amiga came from HI-SOFT, which was technically accurate but lacked action.
The game is played from'lwo distinct - views, that of the pilot and navigator. The control panels and their functions are based on those of an actual Tornado, with minor enhancements to fit in all the relevant displays.
LAND OF THE GIANTS Rather than choose a particular country, the programmers have plumbed for designing their own game world, which they're currently filling with missile sights, factories, farms and other targets.
In the pursuit of realism, all objects are in proportion with each other as well as the player's plane. Although names were never mentioned, Dl's PR man, Martin Veitch, claimed that one popular flight sim featured telegraph poles that where 500 feet high when measured against the size of the player's aircraft.
The main part of the game is based around a series of progressively harder missions. There will also be a mission designer to let gung-ho pilots pick and, hopefully, bomb targets of their own choosing. Some of the targets are linked and affect other locations when they’re hit.
Destroying a radar, for instance, will disable any guided SAMs attached to it. If .
A power station is destroyed the lights go out in any buildings connected to the electricity grid.
The game is being developed on PC in 256 colour VGA mode. A slow machine is used to run the game so the programmers are forced to keep within hardware limitations. The Amiga Tornado will probably only be in 16 colour mode, which will save memory and keep the game running at speed.
Although the PC version of Tornado is due for completion in the next couple of months, it’s unlikely that the Amiga version will be released before late next year.
Once the logic routines have been completed it’s easy to download them to an Amiga, although down grading the resolution and colour graphics will take time.
IMIIMfgMi Unlike most flight sims, the objects are not made up from polygons. A complex design utility, similar to a CAD program, is used. Points called Vertices are plotted which act like hooks from which lines are hung. Once designed in line art, the objects can then be filled in.
Nearly all the buildings, vehicles and planes are based on photographs and detailed diagrams. As much detail as possible has been crammed into the game. Hardened aircraft shelters have opening and closing doors as well as complex runway layouts. There are microwave communication stations as well as railways (complete with trains), farms and houses. As you fly closer to an object, the detail increases along with its size.

Their computer game forays have got consistently better, too, with Lycanthropes appearing as
both good guys and baddies in the likes of Altered Beast and Night Hunter. Wolfchild, however, puts the beast through what could be its toughest challenge yet. 'We started by looking at games such as Strider and Switchblade II.' Says Simon Phipps as he recounts Wolfchilds development, 'and we took stock of their pluses and faults before working out a happy medium between the two, plus our basic game idea.' Anyone expecting Core's new addition to the bustling world of platform games to resemble the likes of such cutesies as Simon's past hits, Rick Dangerous and Switchblade.
Though, are in for a big, big shock.
Core go canine in their attempt to combine console playability with the stunning Amiga graphics. Steve ‘Essex Wereman’ Merrett wolfed down his lunch and saw the Derby-based company’s next release.
‘We've deliberately gone for the "hard" look,' he continues, ‘and this entails making the sprites and backdrops far more detailed than in past games, and making the action faster and busier.'
Wolfchilds scenario revolves around the rescue attempts of the hero as he searches for his kidnapped father through a succession of platform and alien-filled levels. However, his only advantage is his weird transformation powers which turn him into the wolf-like beast whenever his energy reaches a certain level.
IN DEVELOPMENT SHEEP S CLOTHING’ I Despite the unoriginal scenario, Simon and his coding partner, John Kirkland, have tried to keep the game as novel as possible. 'It's not easy creating a different style of game within the platform limitations,' Simon admits, and although it does look very similar to Strider, we'd like to think that there's more to it than that.’ Comparisons between Core's newie and

: s sm - the Capcom coin-op are apparent from the beginning and, although the werewolf can't compete with Hru's somersaulting skills, every other aspect is more than well-catered for. The actual gameplay takes place over five multi- directionally-scrolling stages, with our hero using the many ledges and platforms to make his way across the sprawling area. Starting aboard a huge airship, each of the five sections is IN DEVELOPMENT THE PRICE IS SPRITE the 50s and 60s.

Ing at 6'dis(6fice,_jt'Mab alMw me to view how the nwwe Jiap'evolved from afar and ensurSTnjitfeit stays playable.’ Simon’spmairvgifn when he came up with thendeadist June was to make the game(4spossible. ‘I want to bridge mfiSSfbetween console addictivity artS trjfTttpiqa’s presentation, and there are'setrerSTdeas in there that I think do (ms.’ Ortaof the ideas and effects that SimoWs happiest with is the actual transformation of the hero into Lycanthrope. That’s a perfect example,’ he enthuses, ’but there are loads of other small touches as well. For instance, on the first stage little
flags blow in the wind, whilst the trees in the set ual It’s The Wooluf! After appearing in such atrocities as 'I Was A Teenage Werewolf and numerous other turgid tales of man-turns-into-beast, Hollywood eventually torgot the Lycanthrope.
However, John Landis who was tamed tor his off-the-wall approach to the horror genre, grabbed the beast by the tall and dragged it kicking into the 80s in ‘An American Werewolf In London’. The tale of two Americans who are attacked by a Werewolf whilst hiking, the story revolves around the surviving student's rapid transformation into the hairy beast. His dead mate keeps coming back from the grave to warn him that, unless he kills himselt, he’ll keep transforming and killing. Coincidentally, Joe Dante saw life in the old dog, too, and promptly released ‘The Howling’, a dark and moody film with
genre veteran Vincent Price making an appearance.
After this, the floodgates opened and werewolves were big business. Wolfen’, ’Silver Bullet’ and countless other low-budget affairs appeared, ironically mirroring the jtuhof Lycanthrope-fesed films ’ based around a particular graphical i theme. Thus, the guards on the airship are bird-like bio-mechanoids whilst later levels require the negotiation of a forest and the kidnapper’s dwelling. ‘And don’t forget the mudminesl’ adds Simon’s programming partner John Kirkland, recalling their difficulties in keeping away from anything vaguely Rick D-ish.
Whilst John is handling the main bulk of the coding duties, Simon is doing the graphics. ’I’m trying to limit myself to the role of graphics man and advisor,’ he says. ‘Every now and then, though, I can’t help but drop in a few lines of code, but nothing too much, John can handle it well enough. Actually, by keepI So do all these slow the game down at all? ‘No, fly.’ He continues, ‘A decision f?de from the start to have the ynning in two frames rather than The reason for this is that I’m bored es that only feature one sprite on he screen at once - where’s the action in that? Switchblade II
is a perfect example, so by opting for the slower speed, we can then get loads more on screen at once and keep the many layers of parallax and the thirty-two colour mode.’ The last three levels are now virtually complete, with Simon and John piecing them together with the map editor and plotting the enemy's attack routes and intelligence routines. From here, the game will go into exhaustive play-testing where any niggles will be ironed out. 'I just want people to play it and enjoy it,' Simon admits. 'It’s my attempt at recreating the excitement that games such as Boulderdash used to
contain.’ Whether or notWollchild will be a howling success will be apparent on its imminent release in early December.
Forest level will never repeat themselves due to a few tricks on our part with the parallax and backdrops. The main problem is that I want people to concentrate on playing the game, and then they can notice the little touches.’ Upgrade your A500 PLUS to 1.5Mb for only £24.95 All AMIGA 500's are now the 500 Plus model.

R0B0C0P Z.pegefB FIRST SAMURAI, page 115 EPIC, page92 BIRDS OF PREY, page 121 Following the immense success of Populous, plenty of cheeky developers have produced games heavily influenced by this award-winning release.
Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery but it doesn’t pay the electricity bills, so, for the past eighteen months, Peter Molyneux and the rest of Bullfrog’s programmers and graphic designers have been busy working on a sequel. Can die-hard megalomaniacs dare to ignore Populous II?
Lei's make things clear right away. You don't have to be a fan of the original game to enjoy this bigger, brighter, and better omnipotent outing. The basic core of the game remains exactly the same. As a divine being, you have a group of followers from whom you derive power in your quest for ultimate greatness.
As Vic Reeves, Britain’s top light entertainer and roundabout Populous fan, recently revealed in an interview, you basically just raise and lower land so your people can spread out, build cute little houses and generally prosper. Gods can also have some fun, though. If your followers have produced enough power, known as manna, you can invoke the odd catastrophe, such as an earthquake or volcano. The latter disaster is the nearest Populous comes to a smart bomb. What's the downside?
Your godly opponent is doing exactly the same thing. The winner is the one who totally wipes out the opposition first.
Dedicated Populous players are probably shouting: 'What's the difference, then?'. Well, for a start, there's a new storyline. You are the mortal offspring of I Zeus, out to prove you can I handle absolute power.
Every level of the original was essentially the same - I but you now face an epic struggle against over fifty Greek gods, titans and mythological creatures. With I this kind of tough challenge, I it's a good job Molyneux and I his gang have carefully invented a hefty Pandora's I Box of horrible calamities to inflict on those poor unsuspecting mortals. Not only that, the actual playfield itself has undergone a complete facelift.
GOD HAVE MERCY At the start of play, you can customise the face of your god. Want to look like a beautiful woman or shifty scholar? No problem. This isn't just graphical nicety, the game alters depending on your portrait. If you design a mean-looking geezer, for instance, you're going to encounter more aggressive opponents. It doesn't mean that it's any easier or harder, it's simply different.
Each of the thirty-something gods have their own strengths and play characteristics. Ares, God of War, isn’t very intelligent but has great power and strength. You'll have to be cunning with him instead of brutish. You don’t have to be Einstein to guess Poseidon, Lord of the Seas, is going to cast some watery effects. Demeter, Goddess of Fertility, can obviously call upon a fast-growing number of followers, so make sure that you wipe them out.
Luckily, there's a briefing before you confront every new opponent.
Not all of the gods are invincible colossi. Things start out with the likes ot a God ot Shepherds and Epimetheus, the weedy titan in charge ot Afterthought.
Prometheus, brother of Epimetheus, stole fire from the sun to give to mankind for which Zeus had him chained to a rock while an eagle ripped out his regenerating liver every day. I don't believe he's going to be that interested in your empire building, right?

STRENGTH Your godly skills will be stretched every time you
play the game. As there are 1000 worlds to journey through, be
prepared for a few surprises along the way. The best players
are the ones who use common sense and take a few risks.
The worlds of Populous are alive with oceans, coastlines, fertile and barren lands, swamps, hills, mountains, trees, buildings, people, and the sound of music. Well, actually, it’s the sound of a heartbeat which starts off slowly and calmly, but becomes erratic during the heat of the battle.
Settlements range from primitive huts and workshops to intricate villas, fortresses and temples. You’re able to make entire towns complete with city walls, gate houses and roads - but this takes plenty of manna. The flag on each building denotes how many people are inside and whose side they're on.
Of course, the more followers you have and the greater their achievements, the more power you wield.
Your people mainly look for unsettled flat land. Once there, they will build the largest settlement possible.
Like real life, people grow tired from exhaustion and lack of vital supplies. Terrain makes a difference. Grassy fertile lowlands are the easiest to populate but far more susceptible to tidal waves.
A deity can only influence the behaviour of its people and perform occasional divine intervention. The Papal Magnet acts as a beacon for your followers and can be placed anywhere on the Map. However, a leader is needed to relocate it. You can command your people to look for enemies to attack. If none are in the vicinity, they YE GODS! To keep players on tlieir toes, Bullfrog has included fifty 'surprises’ including monsters who randomly appear out of the ground grabbing people; there's the learsome Kraken sea beast, Midas, who turns everything into gold, and a giant Bronzeman first seen in
the movie Jason and the Argonauts. Other neat effects include people doing moonies or walking around with their heads blown off. It will literally take hundreds of hours to see every single one, and. Even then, you still won't know if there is one more surprise in there somewhere... Populous II is packed with options and can be customised to create a more difficult challenge.
It's quite easy to smash your mouse against the wall when your opponent gets the upper hand.
This is also one ol the best two- player games around.
The presentation is faultless.
The graphics have enjoyed a quantum leap in terms of quality. No mean teat, when you consider the excellence ol the original game.
In addition to the constant heartbeat, there are almost ninety sampled sound effects created, claim Bullfog, by a mad Frenchmen who is married to an opera singer'. A low rumbling and a cracking of the ground denotes an earthquake. The actual volume depends on the power ot the god and the total effect. You'll also hear all sorts ol screeches and swordfights as people are beaten up and killed.
KHUOUSH Perseus, one of the tough-guys. Struts his stutt looking to tackle the enemy. He'll soon make short work ol this poorly-defended village.
Those small blue pools aren't jacuzzis, they’re mystical baptismal tonts which cause the loyalty ol the bather to change from one side lo the other. A great effect to confuse the opposing god.
* ¦ will go back lo their favourite hobby, home improvement.
Added to this, mortals have a higher degree ot freewill than before. There are old men, young buxom blondes, soldiers, etc. During play, your attention is split between an overall Map of the world in the top- right section of the screen and a Close-up isometric-3D representation of the evSnts.
All the game command icons are situated around the side of this Close-up, which takes centre stage. This is the area of the world where you directly influence the populace using icons for adding or removing layers of terrain, IN TWO MINDS... There are two versions of Popu oi s available. The first requires one megabyte of memory. The other runs on a standard 512k machine but has fewer frames of animation and sound effects. Apart from that, they play the same. Look out for a sticker on the packaging to buy the right one.
Invoking a catastrophe of godly proportions, and so on.
With the default mode, a pointer is placed anywhere on the Close-up to raise and lower land, although in some worlds you should already have a house on the screen.
A right click of the mouse while the pointer is on one of your settlements instructs some of the people inside to move house. The more manna you gather, the more commands you can execute.
Keep an eye on the red manna bar to check the current status.
GOD BLESS YOU A lew hints for gods just starting out...
• Make as much land tor your people as possible.
• Trees are a bonus but are defenseless against fire. Why not
build a forest in the enemy camp, then strike a match?
• More manna is needed to build settlements in the hills, but
lowland can't handle swamps and floods.
• It’s only people in houses who generate manna.
• Dealing with heroes is a problem. It a hero beats up a castle,
you're going to lose a lot of manna. It might he wise to
sacrifice a lew ol your people and reduce the class of
buildings In a hero's path so they don’t get too much manna.
• Castle walls are a very good defence against heroes. You can
delay them or stop them completely.
• Try clicking on Ihe hieroglyphics surrounding the Close-up to

OH, MY GOD! According to Greek legend, Titans were originally more powerful than the Gods.
However, the underdogs became stronger by being worshipped by mankind and were eventually able to overthrow the Titans during a battle on Mount Othrys.
If you're having difficulties, you might try letting the computer give you a few handy hints and prompts. A coliseum under construction in the upper right-hand portion of the screen is the final ingredient. This indicates the size of the two tribes as they grow, and it also displays other useful information.
GOD GRIEF Experience gained can be attributed to six elements: People, Vegetation, Earth, Air, Fire and Water. You therefore decide what sort of powers you can excel at.
Effects become more and more powerful as the game progresses. Casting a volcano will produce a wimpy effort at first with just two lava flows. Later on, if you put all your experience into Earth, it will create a monstrous structure ihat takes up a quarter of the world.
So far, so good. What about these new effects?
One of my favourites is Plague. This causes your opponent's houses or people to become riddled with an infectious and fatal disease.
These people will no longer give manna to their god and spread the plague to anyone they touch. They're identified by a screeching black bird circling high above. Another neat trick is to place down some fungus. The way it spreads is determined by the pattern in which it was sown.
Most of these effects can backfire. Your people are just as susceptible to plague as the opposition. Creating forests is great for the envi- SCREEN A vortex ot wind can carry people away. Whirlwinds al90 cause whirlpool: when they travel over the sea. Can you see Helen ot Sparta turning some of the people, both male and female. Into lovelorn lemmings?
Ah, what a green and pleasant land. You can even Import S m City designs Into Populous II and play on them. Bullfrog s co-founder, Pete Molyneux, hopes this will start a new trend.
Once you've mastered the commands, there's a facility to switch on a fullscreen view and swap the icon controls lor keyboard short-cuts. What a lovely volcano you have there!
An earthquake victim frantically waves and cries tor help as the surrounding land Is swallowed up.
Ronment but these can quickly be turned into infernos.
The Knight in the original Populous has been replaced with six Heroes, one for each element. A Hero allows you to turn the leader into a more effective killing machine for a limited amount of time.
Heroes like Hercules are masters at breaking bones, chewing gristle and all sorts of other horrible things.
Perseus, the people's hero, is very similar to the original knight except he is far more intelligent. Bellerophon is a half-man, half-tree beastie.
Whenever he wins a battle, Bellerophon splits into two and causes double the trouble. Earth-champion, Hercules, is super-strong and capable of taking on many an adversary, while air-head Odysseus is the swiftest of all the heroes. Achilles, the arsonist, is surrounded by a mantle of flames and will burn anything he comes into contact with. The strangest of the heroes is Helen of Sparta. She is very beautiful and anyone who sees her will follow Helen wherever she goes, even to their watery doom.
GRACE OF GOD Armageddon is the most devastating effect and requires a tremendous amount of manna. Make sure your population heavily outnumbers your opponents because once Armageddon has been called into play, you cannot alter the flow of events.
The best parts of the original game have been retained, while the gameplay has been further enhanced by some stunning special effects and more in-depth challenges. The result is, in a single word, incredible.

(DOUBLE SIDED DRIVE ONLY) With the stench of victory still pungent in his sensors, that towering metallic monolith, Robocop, is back in an arcade movie-adventure that's so fresh you could vacuum pack it and stock it in Tesco. RoboCop 3, the game, is unique in the fact that it will hit these shores whilst the actual film is stiff-in Detroit buying its plane ticket.
And that's OK by programming team D.I.D., as in their opinion the game far outstrips any action the film has to offer.
OOP, the security and construction giants, are desperate to get work underway on their new project.
Stepping out from Ihe thermo-nuclear blast. Robocop Is completely Intact right down to his tlame- resistent codpiece. However, it's not over tor our titanic hero as he's yet to tace the nimble ninja.
Delta City. They have hired a ruthless group of mercenaries, the Rehabs, lead by the psychotic McDagart, to drive the people out and make way for the corporate bulldozers.
Reluctant to leave their homes, the inhabitants form a resistance group to fight off the marauders and protect their homes. When news breaks that the Resistance An ED209 lurks in the shadows after breaking into the police armoury.
TW0-IN-0NE Split Into two sections Robocop 3 boasts two distinctive playing styles. The first Is the full Movie Adventure Incorporating virtually the whole story-line from the third film. The second Is the Arcade Game which allows you to access all the elements ol the full version, but through different scenarios.
Have reprogrammed an ED209 and used it to break into the police armoury, Robocop is dispatched to the scene to apprehend the escaping perps.
The preliminary section is a screaming car chase through the detailed 3D environment of Old Detroit pursuing the criminals in your standard issue Turbo Cruiser. Their speeding van is targeted on a road map on the dashboard of your car.
Avoiding oncoming vehicles, Robo must cut the van off Above: McDagart ihe leader ot the Rehab group displays his own special brand ol reasoning.
And ram it until it crashes.
Things aren’t that easy, though, as the van has a good head start and you have to make use of every straight stretch of road so you can slam into turbo to catch up. Any close contact with the van, and a rather miffed resistance fighter swings out from the side to pepper your windshield with bullets. Get too close at the back and the doors fly open and riddle Robocop with more of the same.
The gameplay can be viewed from up to 10 camera angles, using the F keys, some of which are quite spectacular as they pan around the action in a circular fashion. Unfortunately, it is virtually impossible to play in any of these modes as the difficulty in judgement involved makes it far too hard to complete. However, it doesn’t detract from the beauty of the scrolling and makes it a worthy addition.
Some of the camera modes kick into action automatically when something special hap- SCREEN MGOGQP3 pens so panicky button pushing is slightly reduced.
During the chase section, the game throws up one of its most interesting features. A message comes through to you that your partner Lewis has been trapped in an alleyway by a gang of bloodthirsty Splatterpunks. This means that you have to chose between saving her life or pursuing the rebels.
This theme crops up throughout the game and whatever course of action you take at these junctions will effect the running of the adventure.
Robocop is also bound by his programmed directives:
(1) To serve the public trust and (2) Protect the innocent.
Often he will be faced by conflicting missions. In one instance, he is in a church and the resistance have taken flight down the sewers whilst the Rehabs have surrounded the building. When he arrives the church is actually full of women and children. Does he protect the innocent and shoot it out with the rehabs? Or does he blast the crowd and pursue the rebels?
From a technical point of view, one of the most accomplished sections of the game is a 3D beat 'em up involving Robocop and a Japanese droid called Atomo. Again, a number of different viewpoints can be taken and the polygonic battle is certainly worth a good bash at even if Robo is a little slow to react in this state.
For me, however accomplished the nice effects are, the corridor section, with Robo tracking the rebels, was one of the most interesting. Depending on which directive you are following, Robo searches the maze of rooms and halls, dispatching all the aggressors that try to hinder him. The villains are animated shadowy figures armed to the teeth with firearms and grenades.
Slightly reminiscent of Operation Wolf, you must pick off the creeps with an extremely accurate cross-hair and watch as their splattered remains fall to the floor. The splatter that your shots cause is highly entertaining and the silhouetted computer targeting is very effective. Additionally, some villains throw incendiaries at you which must be shot whilst others use hostages as shields so that you never know who is around the corner.
The accidental killing of an innocent seriously reduces your efficiency percentage which, if below 30%, causes malfunction and eventual shut down.
Also at Robocop's command is a Gyropack. This is certainly one of the most enjoyable missions in the game as our alloy hero dons the pack and jets off into a war zone complete with ED209S, tanks and heavy artillery. All the action takes place around an industrial complex protected from the air by helicopters. This is the only place in the game where Robo has any choice in weapons and his trusty HAVE A BREAK. . .
Media Breaks are positioned throughout the game and provide the introduction to the Movie section. Intormation about the days top stories and Robocop’s progress are presented in a mixture of text, with two American newscasters as backdrops, and splendid 3D animations providing an atmospheric link into the actual game zones.
SCENE gun can be traded in tor a large bore cannon and smart 1 bombs. Believe me, he needs them as flying over all the hardware on the ground attracts all manner of attention. Huge 3D helicopters buzz and fire at you whilst ground attack forces launch wave after wave of flak into the sky. It's a good idea to clear the skies first before diving into the building com- ] plex and destroying the support vehicles. Ducking in and out of the skyscrapers, twisting through the factories, ] dodging bullets and opening up on the huge walkers makes this the highlight of the game and the third dimension
is thoroughly exploited.
All aspects of the game are repeated in the Arcade section, but involve different tasks such as the Street Fight where the city is plagued by punks and Robocop has to apply his special brand of justice.
There's also a hand-to-hand combat stage where you can practise the arts against a robotic ninja and a driving sequence where car theft has reached epidemic proportions.
Robocop 3 is a polished peace of programming that tries its best to be varied and original. However I still question its lastability. There is no denying what’s there is pretty good, but, as far as I can fathom, there are only four game styles and with the exception of the Giropack section these are quite limited. The game comes on three disks and D.I.D. tell us that there’s an extra special surprise upon completion. It’s great to see something that steers away from the normal Ocean licence, and Robocop 3 deserves a look.

LEASED_ON_AMIGA, ATARI ST, IBM PC AND COMPATIBLES VIRGIN GAMES LTD 338a LADBROKE GROVE LONDON W10 5AH With sales ol over one million and a bundle of prestigious accolades from around fhe world, the Ultima series of fantasy role-playing adventures from Origin are regarded as fhe best examples of the genre.
Sadly, fhe Amiga adaptions of the first five games were desperate efforts. Origin therefore wanted to make sure the person handling the conversion of Ultima VI over from MS-DOS possessed the right credentials ¦ .l 11 for such a seem- ingly impossible sL 1 ,ask‘ Enter pro- 9rammer jJA Jones-Steele, who was previously responsible for the Amiga versions of 'Nam, EA's Hard Nova and Subbuteo. He phoned Mindscape six months ago and coolly asked for the job.
By now, you're probably asking what makes Ultima VI so special. Everything!
There simply isn't any other game out there with the depth of the Ultima saga. It's been estimated that, even if you know exactly what do to, it would take something like 200 hours to complete the latest game. Not that there's only one way to finish it, either. The first three Ultimas were simply filled with loads of bad things to beat up.
Whereas the rest are a trilogy of stories exploring the demands of virtue.
Nevertheless, the core of Ultima is basically a struggle between the forces of good and evil.
Play begins with a fancy animated introductory sequence which transports you through time and space to the bizarre and frequently dangerous kingdom of THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMMM„ After celebrating the 10th anniversary of Ultima last year, you’d think Origin and the rest of us would be thoroughly-sick of Lord British and his pals by now. Far from it. Fans can read a series of novels using characters and themes from the Ultima saga, keep time with the Ultima wristwatch, drink coffee from the handy Ultima mug, or even visit the Ultima theme-park in Japan. There is also talk ot an Ultima
cartoon series for American TV.
WORLDS OF ULTIMA Like Opera, you either love or hate Ultima. Players who don't relish the idea of wandering through the fantastic realms of Britannia will soon be able to enjoy the silky smooth game system employed in Ultima VI without the hassle of casting spells and fighting gargoyles. The first two ‘Worlds of Ultima' titles boast highly-original storylines, spectacular artwork and cinematic music scores synchronised to the on-screen action. Savage Empire throws bold adventurers into a prehistoric jungle brimming over with bloodthirsty dinosaurs while Martian Dreams hurtles them back
in time on an imaginative journey to the mysterious red planet. Both these games are being reprogrammed by John Jones-Steele and should be released early next year.
Britannia. Punching up the the members of your party is character creation option on located on the right of the the menu screen allows you map. Below this lies a win- to select the name, sex and dow with text describing portrait of your alter-ego. The everything you see. Hear and next phase is less obvious do. There are only ten com- but far more important. A mands necessary to handle series of personality-probing the game. You can attack, questions determine cast spells, get somewhat kind of character thing, drop something, you'll get on the quest move something and to thwart those so on.
As Origin points marauding hordes of out, 'If you can touch Gargoyles. It, you can use it'. To Ultima VI is the cast a spell, you must first attempt to make things have a spellbook read- easier to play. The game ied and possess enough screen is divided into four magic points and the regions, the largest of which right reagents which are is situated in the upper left collected on your trav- area. This map shows a els. The crucial magical close-up overhead view of help is divided into eight the world you're moving circles of spells, which through, and a roster of all gradually increase in
Conversations are simple affairs in Ultima 6 but they can provide a vital clue needed elsewhere in the game.
It all begins one stormy night when, after stuffing your face with pizza and a rerun of I Love Lucy', a mysterious light warps you into the quest.
Complexity and strength. A simple first level spell drains one point while a fifth level spell, more difficult to cast, takes five away. Detecting a trap, for example, requires Nightshade and Sulphurous Ash but the eighth level spell to Resurrect requires both these reagents plus Garlic, Ginseng, Spider’s Silk, Blood Moss and Mandrake Root.
Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Ultima VI is the richness of the characters encountered. Clicking on the name of one of your party, for instance, reveals their portrait and a list of classic statistics.
The higher a stat, the better.
Strength determines how much they can carry and how effectively they can strike with bludgeoning weapons.
The only way Health can be regained is by rest or healing.
Dexterity reveals the speed with which they can move and attack, and how effective they are with non-bludgeoning and projectile weapons like crossbows and flasks of flaming oil. A character's bar- gaining ability and effectiveness as a spellcaster is shown by their Intelligence rating. Magic points certify how many spells can be cast.
Spells of the fourth circle will obviously use four magic points. These important attributes are replenished every hour by an amount linked to their Level rating.
This indicates how powerful a character has become through experience gained in past adventures. Finally.
Experience unveils the time when they’re ready to progress to the next Level by meditating at a shrine.
The talk command allows you to converse with any people encountered. You're also able to speak with certain shrines and statues and with lhe olher mem' bers of your jjjJjjScgj party. You talk by typing single words, though most people respond to simple stuff like name, job and bye. During the course of conversation, characters will give you an idea of what they're interested in.
It's still too early to say whether this will be the last Ultima game ever released on the Amiga. Let's hope there’s more to come... BEST OF BRITISH! Ultima Is the brainchild of Richard Garriott, the co-founder of Origin who also goes under the guise of Lord British.
His lather Is a former NASA astronaut who flew aboard both Skylab and the Space Shuttle, so naturally enough, Garrlott’s hilltop mansion in Austin, Texas contains secret passages leading up to a lully-equipped astronomical observatory which can read a newspaper 15 miles away.
Every other year, Garriott transforms his home Into a 'spook house’ on the nights surrounding Halloween. Parties of victims are lead through a 45-mlnute deluge of frightening sights, _ sounds and smells. Guests climb steep stairs and crawl through narrow places as they're 'scared to death' by a vast aj f array ot special effects and over 75 * W skillfully made-up amateur actors por- - (raying ghosts, zombies and demons. Hmi Garrlott's garden Is turned Into a tU.lil.l.t.l.i.1 graveyard, his jacuzzi becomes a i swamp and the master bedroom is transformed Into a chapel populated by gruesome
lepers. The whole event , s,..| costs S50.000 and lakes two months lo construct. Today, Garriott has more than one skeleton In the cupboard! III Iwu I Tli n Yl Keywords, which could lead to you gaining turther information from the person, are highlighted by a different colour. This facility can be switched off if you want to discover them all by yourself.
There are a number of diverse beasts that inhabit the plains, forests, waterways and dungeons of Britannia.
These range from Acid Slugs, which dish out painful but superficial skin burns, to antagonistic Wasps. Fearless warriors will no doubt have immense fun hacking all the . . % demons, gargoyles, and « wolves. A successful adven- turer, however, must employ more subtle and involved tactics to get anywhere in the game.
All the Ultima releases have so far been based around a system called tile Although these 'tile' graphics are graphics where the map is a little primitive, there's so much made up of 16x16 pixel to explore and meel that players blocks. John Jones-Steele won't get bored looking around. 1 2 succeeded in trying to make the graphics look as % good as possible.
- no mean feat, considering the original Ultima VI » on MS-DOS
had the luxury of 256- colours as opposed __ to the rel- L .pl
atively paltry Amiga palette.
Origin's philosophy for audio in games is tension metered. Jkrm Well-scnpted music scores compliment gSBSjjr: environmental sound effects used for raV of campfires and axes hitting body armour. The background soundtrack changes depending on where you are and what you're doing. All the pieces have been ported across from a special compact disc created by Martin Galway, who hasn't been heard of since such C64 tunes as Wizball and Hypersports.
The Ultima VI hitlist includes the aptly titled Can't Remove the Pain, Black Forest, and Stones. Black Forest dates back to a 1974 composi- lvI tion by Todd Porter, who k'1 also provided most of Although every Ultima can tie played separately, together they form a story of truly epic proportions. In case you've never met Lord British or the Triad ot Evil, we hereby clutch the mighty sword of Avatar and pronounce judgement on this ultimate roleplay experience.

Will be a more-than-adequate substitute. With a scenario which bears more than a passing resemblance to the 70s cult sci-fi show.
Battlestar Galactica, the game pits the player against the evil Rexxon Empire as you attempt to escort a massive fleet of Federation starships through deep space to a new safe-haven.
The game begins with a finely-crafted animation sequence which relates the story so far in true 'Star Wars' style. With a sun approaching supernova, a loose alliance of planetary systems are rapidly lacing extinction. Their only hope is to construct a vast space fleet capable of transporting the entire populace to Above: Things aren't looking too good. You've lost one fighter and another is about to blow.
Ulysees VII. A habitable planet located on the far side of the galaxy. To reach their destination, the rag-tag collection of 8,000 interplanetary craft must pass through the Rexxon Empire, a huge expanse ot space controlled by a war-like race dedicated to the extermination of the human race.
To help protect such a large and vulnerable fleet ot ships, the Federation has built a large number ot battleships including two huge dreadnoughts, the Battleaxe and the Ftedstorm. And a highly advanced tighter equipped with a tiersome array ot weaponry. Made from super-tough Epical metal, only three such fighters could be constructed because ot the scarcity of the ore. As the Federation's top flyboy. It's up to you to take control of the craft and help protect the fleet to the best ol your abilities.
Escorting the Federation space fleet to their new homeland is fraught with danger. Not only will the starfleet need to be protected from hostile Rexxon battle squadrons, but a number of pre-planned missions need to be undertaken to help neutralise the Rexxon threat. In all. There are eight missions to complete and failure in just one of these will result in the total destruction of the fleet and. Consequently, the end of the game.
The main screen features a bitmapped cockpit display of the Epic fighter together with a 3D representation of the area immediately in front of the craft. A combat scanner locates and targets enemy ships while punching the Return" key toggles between the various weapons at your disposal.
WHO D.I.D. WHAT... Epic comes from the same team responsible for F29 Retaliatoranrt Robocop 3. Based in Runcorn, Cheshire, Digital Image Design was I | founded in February 1989 by Marlin Kenwright and Phil Allsopp. The 3D | engine used in F29was completely rewritten tor Epic and runs around 25-30% faster. More than 6 man years of work have gone into the game and it incorporates a new I cacheing loading system so that the I player doesn't have to wait too long ' for each part of the game to load.
I There's also a number of smart ani- | mated sequences that cleverly link each mission.
Each mission requires a different combination ol armaments ranging trom standard sell-regenerating lasers and nuclear-tipped torpedoes to lock-on missiles and a cobalt doomsday device which destroys anything within 200.000 kms.
Blaster which throws out a concentrated beam ol energy in tront ot the ship which destroys anything in its limited range.
Toward the lett-hand side ol the cockpit is a system display which shows how much tuel is lett. Current speed, and shield status. Fuel consumption is the Achilles' heel ot the Epic tighter as most (unctions eat away at the tuel tanks at an alarming rate. To help compensate tor this design , fault', the Federation has placed tuel pods at strategic points during each mission as well as a number that have been scattered at random throughout the game A tractor beam is used to snag the pods which is accessed via the weapons system. The ship's protective shielding uses up the most tuel. So
it's best not to use this tacility until entering a combat situation. But do remember that, when activated, the shielding takes up to six seconds to completely envelop Ihe ship.
Each mission requires a dif- Best ol all is the neutron SCREEN Controlling the cratt is simplicity itself. Holding down the lett mouse button controls the speed while Ihe right button activates the currently- ScreenstaR selected weapons system.
The ship can be made to bank to the lett or right by moving the mouse trom side to side with a forward motion sending Ihe cralt into a dive and a backward movement enabling it to climb rapidly And that's it. Such simple controls cut out the need for over complicated displays and allow the player to jump straight into the action.
The eight missions involve both planetary and space warfare and have been |MISSION IMPOSSIBLE During the long haul to Ulysees VII, you'll be called upon fo fly a number of hazardous missions fo protect the Federation Fleet and engage enemy fighters.
1. The first mission involves clearing a path through a mined
asteroid belt marking the edge of the Rexxon Empire. From .
There, you are to proceed directly to Amragan Nine and destroy
a deep space tracking station before they can alert the Rexxon
battle fleet to your presence.
2. The second objective is the total destruction of the mining
and processing capabilities of the planet Tarrun and its
affiliate moon, Stallica. These installations provide the
Rexxons with their only supply of warp-drive fuel and is thus
well- protected. Multiple laser turrets, guided missile
installations and several crack squadrons of enemy fighters
are just some of the firepower at the base's disposal.
O 3-
3. A Rexxon Attack group has gathered near Tarrun and Is about to
launch an assault on your civilian fleet. Although not a
strong force, the enemy squadron is capable of inflicting
severe damage and must be taken out before they reach your
ordnance ships or agricultural vessels.
4. Mission four's task is to neutralise a gigantic Magma Cannon
on the planet of Potead. Situated on a volcanic ridge, the
cannon feeds off the energy of the planet’s core and can
generate a powerful blast calculated to exceed several thou
sand megatons. The planet's gravitational pull and dense
atmosphere make navigation tricky and formidable groud-based
defenses consist of multiple rocket and laser batteries.
5. It is anticipated that the enemy will scramble every available
star fighter in the vicinity after the Magma gun has been
disabled. These will Include a very large number of one-man
fighters as well as the Rexxon Imperial Guard. At least 60% of
enemy craft must be destroyed to guarantee success.
6. The sixth mission involves knocking out the Imperial Rexxon
Command Centre. This will effectively isolate the Rexxon
Battle Fleet and create disorder throughout the Rexxon Empire.
Expect heavy defense fortifications and well-equipped attack
squadrons.
7. The largest space conflict In recorded history says it all.
The arrival of the enemy is Imminent. Spearheaded by the two
huge Rexxon dradnoughts, enemy forces are expected to total
more than 1,400 battle ships. The over-riding aim is to
destroy one of the mother ships by getting in close enough to
blow up its bridge.
8. The final mission will involve escorting the fleet to the
far side of the Rexxon Empire. Pockets of Rexxon resistance
will make sporadic attacks on the fleet in a last ditch
attempt to win the day. Once you’ve landed on Ulysees it's
effectively mission over and you can put up your feet and take
it easy. Congratulations.

Designed to test the Epic tighter to the limits ot its endurance. Missions include blowing up strategic Rexxon tuel dumps, clearing nuclear mine fields, repelling attacks on the Federation fleet, disrupting communications and neutralising the attack capabilities of the amassed Rexxon battle fleet. Each mission is extremely difficult, and get progressively harder BATTLESTAR EX-LAXIA | Battlestar Galactica was hyped as the most expensive science fiction show ever. When it finally | made its debut in 1978, it was greeted with indifference trom the viewing public and disdain try the critics.
‘Narclsslstically bland', 'Battlestar Exlaxia'. And 'unbelievably cheap and supremely unbelievable’ were just some of the comments heaped on the show.
For those of you fortunate to have missed the short-lived series, the show involved a weekly dose ol intergalactic space fights coupled with some of the most excrutiatingly painful and banal dialogue ever to feature on mainstream TV.
The basic premise of the show was interesting enough: In the seventh millennium, a 1000-year war between twelve human tribes and an evil robotic race ended with the near total destruction of the humans' space fleet as well as the complete obliteration of their home planets. Out of a fleet ot hundreds of vessels, only one battlestar - Galactica - remained which became the mothership tor the remanents of the human race. Faced with the | threat ot constant Cylon attacks, Galactica and its motly collection ot space ships left their galaxy seeking the legendary | thirteenth human tribe, known
to | inhabit a Golden Planet’, the planet Earth!
Unfortunately, what could have been a belter of a sci-fi space opera concentrated on using a battery of special effects | to the detriment of good scripts and believeable characters and the show soon lost its initial appeal and was cancelled after only 17 episodes.
THE LEGEND CONTINUES The team behind [pic are already hard at work on its sequel, although the game has yet to be taken up by Ocean, It’s set 60 years in the I future, after the fleet have successfully established a colony on Ulysees I
VII. Although hailed as a hero after defeating the Rexxon Empire,
you’ve been unceremoniously drummed out ol the starfleet.
The new society has striven to build a more tranqu'l and
peaceful existence than before and has decommisioned its
armies and let Its stockpile of weapons go | to rust.
However, a dark and foreboding lorce entity is slowly making
its | way across the vastness of space towards the
Federation’s new homeland, wreaking havoc along the way.
Only your experience as a top wartime pilot can save the
day. But can the Federation prepare its defenses in time?!
Will you be up to the task? Is this the end ot the human
race? Stay tuned lor further intergalactic action... as the
game progresses and all have a knock on effect for
subsequent missions. For instance, failure to blow up a
Magma Cannon on the planet Pofead before the Federation
Battle Fleet is in range will result in the neartotal
destruction of the convoy and leave you alone in facing the
Rexxon Imperial Guard - a task not to be relished! Another
mission involves repelling a Rexxon Attack Legion. Although
this is easily done, adequate protection must be given to
the Agricultural ships and the Ordnance storage vessels. If
either of these should be destroyed, the consequences might
not be immediately noticeable, but later on in the game you
could tind yourself without lood or any weapons.
The most amazing thing about the game is the quality and speed ot the 3D graphics. The variety ol designs, liberally 'borrowed' from classic sci-fi TV shows and movies, adds to the overall atmosphere and gives a convincing feel of ‘authenticity to the game. Some ot the ships in the game are gigantic, up to six miles long, and the player can zoom in to take a closer and more detailed look at some ot the larger cratt.
Near-perfect collision detection means that you can tly in between the individual struts and girders that make up each ship's inlrastructure without inadvertently trashing your cratt due to poor design The sheer scale of the game is also impressive. Up to 400 polygons can be on screen per second and multiple battle sequences can involve more than 350 ships, each with their own intelligence routines. For example, predator ships will merely persue a vessel until either it or its target are destroyed while other craft display attack modes based on real war tactics and theory such as
encirclement and dispersal manoeuvres. More than six man years have gione into developing the game Top: A heavy-duty mining vehicle is about to be reduced to a pile ol twisted smouldering metal. Above: A Rexxon fighter narrowly avoids the Epic's laser lire and lives to light another day... with a good proportion ol that time spent on perfecting the battle sequences.
Old timer, Dave Whittaker, I provided the sound FX. Mars, the Bringer of P War. Trom I Holsts' Planet Suite, forms the main in-game music to good ettect and there are plenty of sampled sounds to keep things suitably raucous.
With some super-fast polygon routines, and the chance of dogfights aplenty, Epic definitely lives up to its name.

Available November ST Amiga Price £25.99 This is real flying! No radar, missiles, parachutes or Mach two turbo jets: just a crabby 105-horse-power engine and machine gun that keeps jamming.
Knights Of The Sky puts the player in the cockpit of a first world war bi or tri-plane, flying and dying for Britain, France or Germany. The manual is complete with a history of the war, so you can lie in bed and look up the dates where the allies took a pasting. But when hostilities break out there’s only a few models worth choosing, with the best being flown by the Germans.
It's worth taking time out with the trainer mode, before you plunge head-first into combat. This still sticks you in at the deep end, but there’s a text bar at the top of the screen which tells you when you've made a mistake and how to correct it. What normally happens is that you end up in a power dive and hit the ground before you can take in any information.
ACES HIGH In the unlikely event you start surviving missions with a high kill rate, you'll start attracting the attention of enemy aces. Once you reach a certain number ol kills you can challenge, or be challenged by, an ace lo single combat. All you have to do is nominate a meeting place and turn up.
Bombing missions also come into play, although your arsenal consists only of tiny 25lb bombs, which are almost useless. Machine guns are often the bane ol confident pilots. It takes quite a lew shots to bring down another plane, and if your gun jams you're in trouble.
Bailing out Is out olthe question.
Once you master taking off and flying in a (moderately) straight line, you're ready to take on some opponents. The first thing you notice is that you can't see your enemy. This is where the look-round view comes into play, hitting the appropriate keys on the numeric pad gives eight different views from the cockpit.
Precision is also called for: if you don't spot him in time, the other plane will usually appear on your tail with its guns blazing.
Bi-planes don't have much in the way of moving parts, just the engine, propellor, pilot and flaps. This lets them soak up a large amount of damage before they get into trouble. Usually, the rudder or flaps go first, which means you can only steer in one direction.The engine is usually next to go, so it's wise to try and land your plane once the steering goes.
Turns and special moves have to be learned if you want to fly against the aces.
Without any tricks you'll soon find yourself travelling back to blighty in a box.
Ground targets can be strafed with your machine guns, but this takes a lot of practise. You have to put the plane into a shallow dive, reduce speed and let rip.
Once a target is in range, your plane is at the mercy of the defenders' guns, and a stray bullet can cause a lot of damage.
SCREEN Clouds can conceal enemy lighters, as can the sun. You need to keep your wits aboul you and be prepared lor suprise attacks. On the other hand you can always use this type ot cover to your advantage, The presentation is excellent with plenty of options.
Most of the planes tly nimbly and can perform some very agile moves. What they do lack, though, is engine power, which leads to stalls.
This takes some getting used to. Especially it you're an F15 or an Intruder veteran.
SCENE SCREENSTAR But the charm of this game is it’s very low-tech- ness. Don't shoot 'til you see the whites of their eyes, and that can be a lot more tun than launching a heat-seeking missile at a distant target.
What makes Knights so good is its speed. It’s incredibly fast, even when the screen gets busy. There are plenty of ground objects which add to realism without slowing the game down.
This a flight sim that requires very accute flying skills. It's jam-packed with action, which makes it like a shoot 'em up at times.
Nevertheless, a must buy for flight sim fans.
Mark Patterson LAMBS TO THE SLAUGHTER 9 One ol Britain's top world war one pilots was Albert Ball. At the age ol 20 he commanded his own squadron, making him the youngest captain in the Royal Flying Corps. He had been credited with 45 kills at the time ol his death. He was last seen attacking live German Albetross scouts, and it's believed he brought down three before finally being shot down.
Britain's highest scoring pilot was Edward Mannock, who commanded 85 squadron. Despite having just one eye he notched up 78 kills, only two less than Ihe Red Baron. Ironically, he died in a (lying accident. He suffered englns problems shortly after take oft, and Instead ol trying to land the plane straight away, which was procedure, he carried on ascending lor several hundred teet, believing his engine would be line, it cut out and he plunged to his death.

The Last Starfighter, UBI Soft’s crack at the strategy genre pits the player against the might of either the computer or another player in a battle to save the world (again).
Battle Isle is played over a series of 32 islands ynhich are split depending on the number of players participating. Each island is depicted as a detailed play area, upon which the land’s many forests, oceans and any installations can be found. Your HQ contains all the necessary military units, factories and depots to get you started in your quest for domination. In addition, the entire game revolves around this base, and the loss of it to the enemy or its destruction results in the premature ending of your campaign, as does the loss of all your troops.
The would-be leaders take turns in their movements, and must move their troops and vehicles across the sectioned grid one square at a time. Thus, a strategy is born as they determine which units would be the most advantageous to move early on, and how many troops should be left to guard the HQ. Similarly, within their movement time, the player can effect repairs on their equipment and build more powerful weaponry in their factories. For such a simple system, though, the process of taking alternate moves adds an extra thrill to the game. Only so much can be done within each move and
successful use of this time can swing the battle either way. Another problem, though, is the actual lay of Part of your mighty arsenal.
SCREEN SCENE SCREENSTAR provider, a ground-based or aquatic loader, which can carry a selection ot armoured vehicles. On the combat front, weapons include Iraqi- style super-guns.
To inifiate a battle, a player must move his unit so that the 'victim' falls within range of the guns. In most cases, this means moving into an adjacent hexagon.
Once positioned, the player then selects combat mode and clicks on the enemy unit to be attacked. If the participant has more than one combat vehicle within range of a target, he may launch multiple attacks, using as many weapons as he has available.
Battle Isle is a superb strategy game which will offer many hours of pleasure. As a two- player game, it can be played with only minimal attenfion to tactics, but as a single-player game it will require nothing short of menial gymnastics fo succeed. Add to this solid gameplay. A neat intro and more options than you could possibly wish for, and UBI Soft have a real winner on their hands.

Maze of options which make the game look anything but simple. Fortunately, the programming team of Lee Hodgson and Mark Davies, have included a ‘Quickstart Tutorial' option that puts you on one of the six courses, ready to tee off.
Once you've gone through the setup and become familiar with the controls, you'll soon understand why the scar Wilde said 'Golf is a good Sunday afternoon stroll - spoiled’, and so, no doubt, it's those people who prefer to sit at home on Sunday and take their Amiga for a brisk walk who will benefit most from Microprose Golf.
Golf is not an easy game for beginners. Vet everything about this game seems so simple, from its humble beginings, to the supposed ease with which one can hit a small ball with a large metal stick towards a small flag.
Microprose are famous for their simulations and comprehensive documentation, detail and realism, so it's easy to understand why Microprose Golf has so many options available.
A simple point-and-click system takes you through a game is so magnificent.
The options allow up to four players, with computer- controlled contestants if needed, to play a full 18, 36 or 72 holes, with full 3D effects.
The game is progressive and easy to follow once initiated and holds your attention at all points. The level of control that you have over both the golf club and the golfer are exact in their realism and add to a level of playability that is only equalled by the excellent PGA Tour Golf, but without the constant disk swapping.
Graphics, too, are excellent, with the five option camera mode allowing you to view the path of the ball from a variety of angles - you can even include a pan shot MICROPROS GOLF POINTS OF VIEW The isometric view lets you see where you are aiming and where the green is in relation to where your ball lies.
You can change clubs on this screen by selecting the club icon and see immediately the different effect each club has on your range. A curved, dotted white line is shown and you can click on any part of the course to get a read out of the distance from the ball to the selected spot.
You can even turn the view through successive 90 degrees by clicking on the curved arrow in the top right- hand corner.

THE SWING Easily the most difficult thing to master, the actual hitting of the ball involves making three separate mouse clicks which determine the power and the accuaracy of the shot. It sounds easy enough but it's within the split-second timing of these clicks that the real skill and playability of the game is unleashed.
MICROPROS!
GOLF which moves the whole 3D world around upon itselt - all ot which happens with a speed and fluidity of movement that would put Steven Spielberg to shame.
Sound is the only poor point in the whole game. The sound effects, whilst adequate, add very little to the atmosphere, the game relying heavily upon its phenomenal playability to draw the player in.
Microprose Gottis a classic. It remains so because the game is as complete as it could be without you actually getting out there yourself and spoiling that Sunday afternoon stroll.
If you play Golf, it's a must. If you don't, then after just a few rounds on the Amiga, you'll be making enquiries down at the local club - and, whatever the outcome, Sunday afternoons will never be the same again.
Garth Sumpter The golfer’s ‘swingmeter’ is two circular lines - the outer one comprises the strength of the shot, the inner one is the timing of when you make contact with the ball.
For a straight, no trills shot, you must click the mouse button when the swing is returning and in the white zone which always emanates from directly underneath the ball.
The size of the white space is determined by how hard you are hitting the ball and what club you have selected.
To shoot from the tee, once you’ve selected a club (If you don't like the automatic selection made for you by the computer caddy), you simply hit the proceed Icon and the backswing will begin to move clockwise towards the end ol | the circular scale. A second click will stop the backswing and send the club heading towards the ball, and the swingmeter anti-clockwise. Your third click will determine how well the ball is hit. If you're in the white zone then your shot will be perfect, allowing only for wind direction and your foot position. Any deviation to the left or right of this point will
result in a hook to the left or a slice to the right.
TEEING OFF There has always been something strange and mysterious about golf, not least of all its origins which seem to be buried more deeply than a badly chipped ball that has gone mining in a bunker. Rumour has it that the game dates back to medieval times when shepherds passed their time by hitting small stonesjround the hills with their crooks.
Actual dates however, are cited in various ways. There is a stained glass window in Gloucester Cathedral, that dates back to 1350 and portrays a ligure that resembles a golfer, whilst the Chinese Nationalist Goll Association claims that the game was originally called Ch'ui Wan (the ball-hitting game) and dates back to the 2nd or 3rd century B.C. Whatever the origins ol the game, in the computer world there will certainly be more agreement.
Namely that Microprose have written one ol the best goll games currently on the market.
V Stance will also affect shots - you will always begin a shot with a square stance but useful variations, such as an open, semi-open, semi-closed or closed position will impart left right overtones to the shot you are playing.
Teeing off is the most important shot you’ll make before you get onto the green because, if your driving is good, you can steer around any nasty obstacles. The tee position will alter the height of your shot. The higher the tee, the more height you will give the ball - useful if you have a strong wind from behind to get extra distance.
Having changed clubs, feet position, shot direction, tee height and camera angles, it's time to throw caution to the wind and finally take that all important first shot.

status. This is effected by controlling JJ Maverick, a little figure, who can drag and throw the blocks about the screen until they form the correct shape. Each level involves a different way of solving the problem. The controls change each time and you have to work out how to shift the blocks around to their specific slots
- and there’s a clock against you, too!
The key to Devious Designs is mastering the knack of the game. The first eight levels give clues as to how it’s done, after that it's down to you to work it out for yourself. Once you grasp the basic idea it becomes more of an enjoyable challenge and less of a frustrating grapple with the joystick.
The graphics are excellent: small but colourful and precise, betraying the presence of ex-8 bit artist and IO creator Bob Stephenson as one half of the partnership responsible for Devious Designs. Sound effects increase the drama and level codes mean you don't have to plough through completed screens to have another go at the one that’s causing the problems.
While DD doesn't have quite the simplistic genius of Tetris or even Klax, it’s a thoroughly enjoyable challenge that's worth taking on.
Mike Pattenden Ever since the success of Tetris, puzzle designers have been looking for ways of capturing the same voracious addictivity with a simple yet teasing game.
Most attempts are clones - three dimensional variants or airbrushed replicas. Devious Designs, however, deserves to be judged in its own right.
The scenario concerns a deranged abstract scientist, Dr Devious, who is obsessed with cubism. He’s so hung-up on the (outdated post-modernist) appeal of the style that he creates a machine to cube objects and tests them out on world famous structures. This means everything from famous landmarks like the Arc De Triomphe to double decker buses are suddenly transformed into blocks. You control JJ Maverick, the only man capable of reversing the damage the Doc is doing.
The game unfolds as a series of levels, each of which has a background framing the object, and a group of geometric shapes created from blocks scattered about the screen.
Transparent squares act by way of an outline demonstrat- HIDDEN EXTRAS As you grapple to solve the problem, your job is helped or hindered by bonus objects which materialise around the screen for you to collect. Grenades, timepieces and temporary squares and shapes appear giving you smart bombs, extra time, ways of getting in the right position and points bonuses respectively, but you can lose lives as whirlwinds, monsters and objects block your path.

Conversely, Rugby players consider every other sport a wimp's game, and advertise their preference by attaching Rugby players do it with funny shaped balls' stickers to their car windows.
The recent World Cup (which the Australian side deservedly won) grabbed an unprecedented amount of media attention as well as clocking up massive viewing figures. For a game that's played by amateurs, it looks as if the sport is finally beginning to attract the mass audience it has always richly deserved.
Audiogenic’s World Class Rugby features all the basic rules plus off-sides, which can be disabled if you don't fancy an overly-complicated game. The simplified version is substantially easier than the full game.
The game can be viewed in three different modes. One gives a standard overhead view of approximately 20% of the pitch. Blimp mode lets you keep your eyes on the entire team, showing most of the pitch, although the players will be tiny graphics. Finally there’s the 3D mode. The player sprites are the same as in the standard mode, but the pitch itself is angled to give it a three- dimensional feel.
The controls are extremely easy to get to grips with. Hitting the fire-button BEGINNER'S GUIDE Rugby's basic rules are easy to understand. Tbe ball mustn’t be passed forward, although it can be kicked ahead. To score a try, which is worth four points, the ball has to he placed on the ground past the opposing team’s goal line. The team then ha*e to kick the ball through the posts from 22 yards to score an additional two points. If a player is tackled with the ball, other team members form a huddle, which is called a scrum. The object ol the scrum is to pass the ball out to your team's scrum
half, who'll usually dump the hall on some other available team member. II the ball goes over the sideline, live players from each team form two lines. The ball is then thrown through the middle ol the lines and it's down to the nearest player to push it on to another member of their team.

RUGBY THE WORLD CUP The second of this month's rugby offerings has a slightly Kick Off-ish feel to it.
Rugby - The World Cup is Domark's contender for the rugby game hall of fame.
Like Audiogenic's it feilures all the-world cup teams, but this is where the similarities end.
Domark have opted for a simplified rules system. Forward passes are still penalised, line outs occur when the ball goes out-of-play, and there are plenty of scmms. Off sides and other more confusing rules don't get a look in. There isn't enough substance - or even realism - to keep rugby fans happy. The game is very much a matter of charging head-first into the opposition, rather than one that requires a modicum of strategy.

* "1 1 An up-and-at-'em rugby game that’s definitely fun to
play.
The graphics for the players are small but tidy, much in the same vein as Anco’s footy sim, Kick Off. A radar in the corner of the screen shows the positions of all the players on the pitch, although it is a little hard to follow because the people look smaller than microbes. Conversions are viewed from behind the kicker, a cursor whizzes past the uprights - and all you need to do is tap the button when it's between them to send the ball through for two extra points.
Scrums are decided through frantic joystick waggling. This usually isn't too hard on the arms, unless you get several scrums in row, which normally proves slightly painful not to mention tedious.
The rest of the controls are very straightforward with the fire button being used to pass and kick. Once the controls have been mastered, the game becomes very easy, and ridiculously high scores are easily attained.
SCREEN SCEN NL side of which are 1 coloured bars, and the joystick has to be pounded left and right to make your team push the opposition back. If you're doing well the bars turn into the colour of your team's kit, or that of the opposition if you're losing.
World Class Rugby is extremely playable. Rugby fans will lap this up as it's a remarkably detailed sim and a really playable game. The attention to detail is remarkable, with lots of options to keep the purists happy.

NO ONE MESSES WITH THE BITMAP KID features: stacks of levels • heaps of weapons • swarms of intelligent nasties bonus games • secret rooms • loads and loads of power-ups HRST SAMURAI Not many games have the sort of pedigree that comes with First Samurai, Vivid Image's third original product. The creative talents of Mev Dine, John Twiddy and Raffaele Cecco have accounted for some of the best games ever released on the old Spectrum and C64 microcomputers, including Tau Ceti, Body-hug- ging creatures try to suck all the energy from our hero on the first
level. Kind of reminds me of Alien... Cybernoid, and The Last Ninja. The first two Vivid Image productions, Hammertist and Time Machine, failed to make 3" ¦ mark on the more sophisticated Amiga scene. So, the trio of programming veterans are attempting to make amends.
Downtown in neo- Tokyo.
Just oh© of the many pretty locations found in this immense beat 'em up.
A brief animated opening sequence details the story behind the game. Lord Akira and his young samurai warrior, are collecting taxes in Feudal Japan when an evil Demon King decides to pay a visit. After murdering the poor peasants and your boss, he makes good his escape using time travel to reach the relative safety of the 24th Century. Thus, with the help of a friendly Wizard, the hero, too, is hurled into the future to avenge your master's death.
Revenge begins in a beautiful countryside setting outside the cyberpunk sprawl of neo-Tokyo. Standing on top of a hill, you serenely survey the surroundings. A stone statue of Buddha sits to the left with mountains and oriental-looking trees lying in the background. Strangely, there are two moons in the sky and a pulsating pot at your side. These magic pots are handy things, dotted around the playscape at regular intervals, and are used as restart points if any of your five lives are lost. But before there is time for a rest, a barrage of bats swoop down and attack you.
Your on-screen Samurai is extremely agile with an expert knowledge of the martial arts. Jumping, crouching and climbing up walls are all effected using the joystick, but initially you're unarmed.
Unuarmed combat is the only means of protection until a weapon is collected. So, with a few nifty joystick combinations, you invoke some well-timed punches and flying kicks to dispatch the first dangers. Further down the line spiders, thugs, ghosts and fire-breathing Chinese dragons must be dealt with, • SCREEN I MsrSIMUMI along with alien-like huggers who cling to you and suck away your energy. Finally, a tough incarnation of the Demon King must be defeated at the end of every section.
Success depends on two basic elements. The first, physical energy, is depleted every time you're hit by adversaries, although a constant supply of food staves off death. The other form of energy, mystical strength, allows you to access more crucial objects found throughout the game. This is increased by the spirit of all the creatures killed and can be traded for neat items and effects. Once a certain amount of this energy has been amassed, a magical sword materialises out of thin air and flies into your hands.
Instead of relying on leg sweeps and low punches, you’re now able to perform all sort of stabs and slashes.
This sharp sword glistens with magic, but quickly disappears if you haven't got enough mystical energy to feed it. Additional armaments, such as daggers and axes, are waiting to be picked up. These offer a varying degree of effectiveness and last for a limited amount of time. Only one type of extra weapon can be carried at a time, though.
Bits of scenery can be blasted to reveal all sorts of goodies, players who like a helping hand can grab a lamp to reveal where ffiese hidden objects are situated.
The bell is perhaps the most useful collectable available.
With it, you can summon the Wizard to provide hints if you're having difficulty getting past a particular part of the game. First Samurai intelligently checks your progress and, if it thinks you're stuck, the Wizard will appear asking you to use the bell so he can perform helpful tricks like stamping out a fire or producing other instantaneous solutions. Finally, each of the ten levels contains special objects which must be added to your inventory. There are four logs hidden in the first stage, for example, which are used to bridge a sparkling WHO NEEDS NINJAS? Totally loyal to their
Feudal Lord, Samurai warriors would ha«e rather committed suicide than be dishonoured by failure or captured during battle. Originally called Saburai. At their height ot Influence Samurai even protected the mighty Emperor. These hereditary guards were professional soldiers with a strict code of practice. Known as Bushido.
Way of the Warrior’, this harsh regime was based around Oontucian and Zen Buddhist principles. The first Samurai school to teach Bushido was established by Toritomo Minamoto in 1185. Japan's privileged class of Samurai was finally abolished in 1868. For more information on these fascinating cultural Icons, try reading Hagakure: Book ot the Samurai by Tsunetomo Yamamoto from Kodansha International.
Waterfall.
First Samurai reminded me of those happy days playing Bruce Lee, a classic C64 game from Datasoft and US Gold. The essential ingredients of negotiating platforms, avoiding pitfalls, collecting objects and beating up bad guys, have all been refined with expert skill. With something in the region of five hundred sizzling smooth- scrolling screens, there’s much to explore and hack to bits. Incorporating just the right balance between challenge and playability, you'll want to come back for more despite initial setbacks. A save option is thoughtfully supplied due to the sheer size of the
game. Not that First Samurai is without a high standard of presentation. Teoman Irmak must be complemented on his excellent animation and original graphic design, while Nick Jones has employed some very unusual audio effects to make this game stand out from the crowd. These samples can sound almost orchestral at times, especially the cries of Hallelujah when food is collected. Our hero even complains when he loses his sword! Nice touches include five brief pieces of oriental music associated with key events and spot FX for stuff like fires and waterfalls which increase in volume as you
get closer to them.
This Vivid Image epic is a breath of fresh air. The Last : Ninja series of arcade adventures from System Three look positively dated by comparison. A rarity amongst its breed. First Samurai is slash 'em up with substance. Ah- TSP?'se?od.?hS!

MiG-29 and the T-27... Flight sim fans, as a rule, like detail.
Lots and lots of it. The more background information the
title has the better - so long as the gameplay remains intact,
of course. So, for a game which does more than just thumb
through Jane's Book of Fighting Planes, why not play the RAF
spotters mutual - Birds ol Prey?
This year has seen the release of some excellent flight sims, most notably F-15 II and SuperFulcrum. But Electronic Arts are hell-bent on out-doing even these two gems with a title that would receive a listing for ‘most heavily-researched software’ in the Guinness Book of Games Record, if one were ever to be published.
Birds ol Prey is without a doubt the most ambitious flight sim ever. It features dozens of planes, ranging from the hi-tech B-2 Stealth Bomber to the lumbering Boeing 747 and Hercules transport craft. And here's just a few more: F-117A, F- 15 Eagle, F-16 Falcon, F-14 The game is based around an East-West conflict, although the setting is fictional. A lone pilot, it's difficult to affect the outcome of the conflict, but as you do your bit, enemy resources diminish and friendly forces start to get the upper hand. The whole thing is played in realtime, so if you quit base to go on a mission
it could be blitzed by the time you return.
Graphs are used to show the status of both sides, although these remain pretty static until the fourth mission.
Initially, Birds ol Prey is hard. The more manouevrable fighters are extremely tough to control; they tend to slide all over the place. And I found myself wrestling with the controls of a sluggish B52 bomber while I learned what all the keys did. Although the joysticks and keyboard are catered for, this is undoubtedly a 'head game' for those who like mouse controls. It took me ¦ SCREEN several attempts just to get an aircraft off the tarmac, and more than a few stalls before straight and level flight was accomplished. Perseverance is definitely called for, but once the basics are mastered the
whole game opens up.
To eliminate boring stretches on long range missions, a novel autopilot feature has been incorporated. Select your target, cruising-height, and how close to the target you want to be when the controls are returned. An external shot shows your plane flying off into the distance, and a couple of seconds later you're at your destination, providing nothing intercepted you en route, that is.
I lonc r s The presentation is extremely slick. When the game loads all you're required to do is enter your name, difficulty level, what time of day you want to fly at, and what kind of terrain you'd like to strut your stuff over.
From there on, select what type of mission you prefer to fly and what plane you feel comfortable handling. The aircraft select screens are very detailed, showing a rotating 3D version of the plane, a description of its capabilities, as well as a full technical break-down and what weapons it can carry.
The mission orders and arming screen follows, and then BACKGROUND Much ol the information need in Birds Ot Prey came trom reference specifications on the different aircraft. A basic (light model was written which would accept different variables and alter the speed, manoeuvrability and fuel consumption of the planes.
Programming a different routine lor each plane would have lead lo a game which would be hard pressed to fit on to a CD. This system allows different aircraft fo be selected with a minimum of loading time, and Iheir performance is moderately true to their real-life counterparts.
Then it's take-off! The external views are easy to call up, nice to look at, but somewhat unnecessary. They also don’t help in controlling the craft.
Use the map option to pin-point enemy targets, such as industrial complexes, and to get an overview on how the battle Is going.
SCENE MAN ON A MISSION It you don't fancy shooling or bombing things, you can lake a non-violent role such as dropping supplies and paratroopers, flying reconnaissance or test-flying the latesl piece of military hardware.
The gung-ho can fly shod and long range interception missions, combal air patrol, go up against ground targets, bomb the living hell out of something, escort bombers or go on support missions. Some missions only allow you to select specific planes, such as the Stealth Fighter recon mission or flights from aircraft carriers, but most of the time you're choice of cratt isn't limited.
For a different perspective you can fly for the other side. The missions are roughly Ihe same, only this lime you fly Soviel hardware against NATO targets.
Some missions are tar more inleresfing than others. The idea of dropping people on a target rather than high explosives is a concept lhal didn't appeal to me. On the other hand, taking a Fairchild A10 oul and duster-bombing tank columns was righl up my street, as was Ihe obligatory Top Gun barrel roll in an F14 just after taking oft trom a carrier.
The player enters the cockpit.
The whole process is very simple and easy to follow, and you can go back to any of the previous screens it you think you've made a mistake.
The attention to detail is extremely impressive. Each mission starts in a hanger, whether you’re flying from an airbase or carrier. When the graphics are in high-detail mode, the weapons on the plane are visible, and ground based objects are visually very impressive. I particularly like the the way bombs go off with a large crash and a flash of light.

PC & COMPATIBLES ATARI ST & STE - AMIGA INFOCRAMES HE NFOGRAMES LTD - 18 OLD TOWN - CLAPHAM - LONDON SW4 0LB - ENGLAND - TEL: 071 738 81 99 SCREEN SCENE JEZ SAN AND THE ARGONAUTS The team behind Birds 01 Prey is Argonaut software.
Headed by industry veteran Jez San, they've been responsible for games such as Slarglider2, Afterburner ant Days Of Thunder. BOP ms originally scheduled fora 1990 release under the name of Hawk, but other projects, team changes and 'actsot God' all contributed to an extraordinarily hefty delay.. Coder Chris Humphries has been with the game from square one, starting work on it way back in the summer of '89. Innumerable other programmers have chipped in on various stages, adding names such as Peter Warnes, Giles Goddard, Ian Crowther and Herman Serrano to an extremely long list of
credits.It's highly unlikely that we'll ever see a sequel.
ELECTRONIC ARTS £34.9 One of the best flight sims 1 ever... absolutely superb! 1 GRAPHICS 78% 1 SOUND 84% I LASTABILITY 92% 1 PLAYABILITY 92% 1 OVERALL 94% I of plane is as you would expect. Trying to do any stunts in a 747 usually results in structural damage, while the fighters are amazingly manoeuvrable. Most incredibly the game comes on just one disk, and uses a minimal amount ot loading. I thought you could only get compression like that with a steam roller.
There's also a huge variety ot weapons, although some can only be loaded on to certain planes. There are general purpose bombs, loads of different guided and unguided missiles, cluster bombs and air-to-air missiles.
Most aircraft are capable of carrying at least a cannon, whereas the B-52 can carry 100 unguided bombs in its hold.
Plenty of ear-battering digitised sound effects have been used for engines noises, missile roars and explosions. All these make a change from the normal copout white noise effects of other flight-sims.
The graphics are very utilitarian, as with most flight sims. There are some nice touches, though. If the missile view is switched on, every time you launch a rocket or bomb the screen follows it to its target. The drawback with this is that in the meantime you can't see what's happening to your plane. The control panel can be switched off, which frees up processing space and gives you a better view of the surrounding area. "• • Birds Of Prey takes flight simulators about as far as they can go on the A500.
You'll certainly not be stuck for choice with this sim. A game you must not miss.

Electronic Arts obviously don’t think there have been enough trade 'n' blast games of late, so have weighed in with the wackily- titled Slarflight 2 - Trade Routes ol the Cloud Nebula.
For those who missed the original, this is a cross between a strategy game and an RPG, with the emphasis on the sci-fi theme.
The role-playing element boils down to choosing the composition of your crew.
Training these guys costs hard-earned cash, and then leaves you with nothing for ship equipment or cargo, so it's usual to bother only with the important crew members like the cook. And then it's time to beam aboard your fine space-faring vessel, which has a startling resemblance to a turkey. Outfitting ? CARGO: i U ENERGY: 1 10.0 Lift! SHIELDS: DOWN S fl NEAP:UNARMED TRANSMITTING: PI ease do not bIast us i nto particles. TaKe pita on us not f it to firoueI i n gour uaste products.
Slimy aliens abound in Slarlltght II. But communicating with them Is not easy - unless you've trained your crew well. In the mean time, explore strange new planets to gain mineral wealth which subsidises further |ourneys.
TRADE ROUTES OF THE CLOUD NEBUL L this with decent engines and weapons takes an enormous amount of money, Ihe raising of which conveniently happens to be one of the main objects of the game.
Once outfitted, it’s time to explore the galaxy. When the ship arrives at a planet, the party descends and wanders around in their buggy, finding and retrieving minerals for later resale at a trading post.
Eventually, you'll journey into the spooky Cloud Nebula itself, and hopefully discover the secret behind the alien conflicts currently raging across the galaxy.
The aliens causing the most grief, the Spemin, have discovered an infinite supply of a new fuel, and are rampaging through space demanding that human kind be enslaved. Not only has your motley band of adventurers been chosen to prevent this, but also to seek out new life...and colonise it.
Enormous quantities of resources are ploughed into a planet if you recommend it for takeover, so it's not a decision to be made lightly.
Once a planet has been DAY OF CREATION Designing characters Is a simple task of allocating skill points, with little attempt at RPG-style characters. Training costs money, so concentrate on the Important crew members, especially the navigator and science officer. Wlthont these guys, the player will be Lost In Space pretty quickly. « selection ot alien races In the crew Is also advisable, helping trade with those flnnlcklty Ets: plus some species possess special skills making them Ideal candidates for certain lobs and tasks. Members of the Thrynn race are superb communication officers, for
example.
Logged, it's on to the next one, and so on. Excitement occurs when the player runs into some alien spacecraft.
The first time this happened I tried responding with a pleasant greeting only to have the aliens blow my ship to smithereens.
Unfortunately, the game is let down by its fundamental lack of excitement; there's no sense of urgency or even a feeling of frontier exploration.
The party justs plods on, trading, communicating, and gathering information and this gets tiresome as soon as the novelty of the system wears off.
28M VIM ,CSI 28V 55% 66% 4S0 The biggest mystery about the game is not the Cloud Nebula, but that it needs one meg to run; nothing here seems to justify it. With run- of-the-mill visual effects and music, accessed from the disk every time certain actions are performed, the RAM requirement indicates some laziness on the part of the programmers, and one drive makes swapping a pain too.
Startlight 2 is destined to be a game bought by Elite buffs, leaving the rest of us cold. Twenty five pounds is a lot to ask when there are so many excellent games being released, so think carefully about spending your hard cash on this. The game never raises itself above the mediocre.

Remarkably, though, it has no fire buttons.
The game is based on a futuristic game show, where the contestants have to fight for their lives while winning prizes such as VCRs and cars. Each room the players enter has four doors through which armies of baseball- wielding bad guys charge, aiming to cripple anyone who comes near them. Naturally, the only way to survive is to kill everything. To make things extra diffiuclt, every five rooms huge armed guardians make unwanted appearances and are virtually impossible to kill. The first is a half-man half-tank creature that has to be blown up five times before its guns are silenced. If
anything, though, it's a little too difficult to overcome so early in the game.
This is one conversion I have been really looking forward to as the coin-op is one of my all-time favourites.
Ocean have managed to capture all the excitement and most of the features of the original. The coin-op cleverly solved the problem of having a human character run in one direction and shoot in another. Until now, coin-ops such as Mercs and Ikari Warriors used rotational joysticks, where the stick could be turned to alter the direction of fire. Smash TV, however, features two joysticks: one to steer the contestant and the other to fire the gun in the direction it's pushed. The Amiga version also uses this system, and it works very well providing both sticks have got suckers and a flat
surface to stick to. There's also a single stick method where you can only fire forwards, but this method isn't quite so successful.
One of the attractions of the arcade machine is the huge amount of things to shoot. At any one time there can be up to fifty robots, humans and other deadly players all dishing out their own brand of violence at once. Much to my surprise, the conversion also has this inordinate amount of gun fodder, and it's this that makes the game such a success.
Each level is made up from a series of rooms, which are laid out so it takes at least two goes to see them all.
Occasionally, there are also I rooms littered with cash, prizes and an above average I amount of enemies.
The graphics are slightly I disappointing. They're neither I as tight or as smart as their I coin-op relatives. Still, there I are a lot of sprites on screen I at once and, when they're blown apart by a grenade, who really cares what they look like? The sound effects I are also more than compe- I SMASH IV SCREEN SCENE BAT OUT OF HELL The Japanese pul Ihe humble baseball bal to rather dubious use during Ihe Second World War.

Smash TV has all the pace and action ol Ihe coin- op, despite lacking its polish.
This is one of Ocean’s best conversions to dale and will definitely find favour wilh fans of Ihe arcade machine.
Mark Patterson SMASH IT UP The contestants start the level with an extremely weedy gun.
To help them, the show's producers teleport extra weapons Into the arena. These Include triple-fire guns, grenade launchers, rocket launchers and an extremely nasty set of whirling blades. The most useful, and least impressive weapon is the shield, which makes the recipient invincible for a short time and also very deadly to any nasties that touch him.
Most of the opposition are armed with clubs. Now and then suicide bombers waddle on, who explode Into a cloud of deadly shrapnel If a player comes too close. Some levels feature wall-mounted guns which take occasional, not to mention accurate, pot shots at any player who appears to be doing too well.

Gremlin Graphics Sollwaie lid; Carver House 7 4 Carver Slreel, Sheflreld SI 4FS. Tel (0742) 753423 Everyone's favourite beer- swilling Viking is set to invade your local soft- shop this Christmas in a platform-packed game based on the exploits of the overweight barbarian from the famous comic strip.
Set over eight levels, the game involves Hagar in frequent acts of gratuitous violence as he attempts to plunder sackfuls of gems and jewels from neighbouring islands. Before setting sail in his rickety longboat, Hagar is presented with a list of loot to bring back from each island by his battleaxe of a wife, Helga.
Failure to keep her supplied in riches results in poor Hagar being booted out of the family home.
Each island is made up of a number of interconnecting caverns, dungeons and tunnels with vast quantities of jewels, gold bars and other such trinkets liberally scattered about.
These boost your overall score or swell your coffers so that you can stock up on extra weapons or lives when you stumple across each level's shop. Each island also has a tavern where Hagar can boy a pint of ale or munch on a chicken leg to top up his energy level or he can gamble his money to increase his wealth still further.
Of course, the locals don’t take too kindly to such wanton acts of violence and various knights in shining armour and axe-wielding executioners patrol the levels itching to reduce your skull to pancake-like proportions. To help combat these adversaries, Hagar carries his trusty sword for a spot of hack 'n' slashing and, if things get a bit tough, he can also squat under his shield for some limited protection. As well as these armaments, the 'F keys access a range of more powerful spears and axes. These come in limited quantities so it's best to use them sparingly until you've amassed

up with the character ot Hagar based around an Idea from one of his two sons. By the time the strip appeared In the national papers ft had already attracted 200 subscribers and now appears in orer 1,000 newspapers each day.
Sadly, Dlk Browne died of cancer In June, 1989, but his most famous creation liras on as his son, Chris, took over the strip shortly afterwards.
Nasties.
The most striking thing about the game are the graphics which perfectly capture the flavour ot the comic strip.
Hagar looks just right and most of his adversaries have been culled straight from the pages of the newspaper strip.
The only thing amiss is the poor quality sound effects.
Some dodgy collision detection also lets the side down, but this is compensated for by the maze of interconnecting tunnels and the variety of characters on the loose. It's not the most amazing game of late, but it's a more than competent platform romp.

Follow-ups are often criticised either for their similarity to the original or for being radically different. And any attempts at correcting faults from the first game often leads to a whole new batch of complaints about these improved’ features. As a whole, the Double Dragon series escapes these problems - it's a pretty formulaic product, with very little difference from the first two.
However, whilst Double Dragon II was merely the first game with a few more backdrops, the third game has made a few new advances - sadly, at the expense of a- couple of the games' nicer ideas.
Up until this third instalment, the series has revolved around the rescuing of the fighting twins’ respective girlfriends.

Nevertheless, whilst the graphical style ol the game is recognisable - even down to the two girly-looking heroes - the gameplay is more akin to Taito's Renegade than past 00 games. One ol the best features ol the original was that objects, such as rocks and crates, could be picked up and hurled at the oncoming lighters and guardians. In DDIII, though, a shop system has replaced this with the player collecting money for beating up the assorted thugs and exchanging it lor swords, extra lives and even a trio ot oriental, street-lighting helpers. Unfortunately, entering this emporium of everyday
fighting objects takes a lot of the spontaneity out ol the action, and interrupts the flow of each level.

Thus, as the boys make their way through the familiar scrolling territory, punching, kicking, and using an assortment of newer moves, they must keep an eye out for these valuable gems. However, despite the scenario, the player never gets to see their ill-gotten gains.
Apart from the inclusion of a few tree demons and a handful of puzzles, this is familiar Double Dragon territory. Although the brothers' adventures take them all over BETTER SECOND TIME AROUND?

up. The inclusion of several new moves - including a rather
nice flying kick where the lads link up for a double bout of
devastation - ensures that the game will keep fightin' fans
happy but, conversely, the bought weaponry doesn't seem
particularly effective. Double Dragon III is a rollercoaster
of a game, with slightly more ups than it has downs. On the
downside, the repetition of the coin-op is ever-present, but
plus points include a twist in the tale, a nice
reaction-testing sequence at the end of the game and a tougher
challenge than that of the first two in the series. I can't
say that DDIII is an essential buy, but it is a well-produced
conversion which hasn’t quite got what it takes to shine
above the rest.

Ap r r os -S t's taken a long time coming I but, after almost 13 years, we have the sequel to one of the most popular coin-ops of all time. Taito's Super Space Invaders ‘91 did the arcade rounds earlier this year and proved that it was possible to take the old classic and update it for today’s sophisticated gamesplayers.
The new game retains the addictive qualities of the original but enhances the gameplay, graphics and sound to produce a worthy sequel.
The Amiga version is an exact replica of the coin-op in every respect, although a few 'extras' have been included to enhance the game further. For instance, there's an animated intro showing our hero boarding his dreadnought and speeding off to intercept the advancing alien space fleet.
As in the original, the player is in control of a small ship at the bottom of the screen which can be moved either to the left or right. Above are the alien nasties which slowly advance down the screen one row at a time. To stop their advance, the player must destroy all the aliens and prevent them reaching the bottom of the screen - the price of failure is a lost life.
The difference with the sequel, though, is that the aliens don’t merely move from side-to-side but attack in Ga ax an-like formations, split in two, or expand to three times their size once hit.
Armed initially with a boggy laser, it's possible to get extra weapons by shooting down a cigar-shaped space ship which periodically cruises along at the top of the screen. These extras include a fire flower which destroys most of the aliens on screen and a multi- ple-laser which fires concentrated vertical blasts ol energy and is capable of taking out entire rows of aliens in one go. After every three waves, there’s either an end- of-level guardian to confront or a cattle mutila- j MW tion screen(l).
The latter involves shooting down a number of flying saucers as they attempt to steal a number of peacefully- grazing cows, if a cow is picked up by a saucer, a carefully-aimed shot will send the unfortunate bovine hurtling back down to earth and elicit a word of thanks. A bonus is given for however many are remaining.
Shoot the space ships at the top to get power-ups The drab graphics ol the original game have been replaced with a collection ol weird-looklng aliens that change with each level. The sound, too, has vastly improved.

At a time when the Brotherhood ot Man and the Nolans were storming the pop charts and the New Avengers and Charlie's Angels were topping the TV ratings, the only coln-ops worth playing were Pong and Breakout.
Hardly revolutionary, the machines prompted electronic giant, Tatto, to enter the tray with the world's first shoot 'em up. Space Invaders.
Developed by Toshihiro Nishikado.
Now a very rich 47 year-old, the game proved an instant hit and was the catalyst lor a whole generation of arcade machines. Originally to be called Space Monster, the game took 10 months to develop and was eventually finished In June, 1978.
When released, it was an immediate success, so much so that the production department at Taito could not keep up with demand. Even today, 13 years after Its debut, the machine can be lound In backstreet cates and seedy arcades - a testament to the game's lasting appeal.
At the advanced level which includes more of the same but with much tougher guardians and more complex attack waves. Unfortunately, it isn't nearly hard enough and most players will have no trouble in completing the game. I clocked it in less than an hour's play which makes me question its testability. Still, it's a cracking conversion of a great game and a joy to play.
Nostalgia freaks and shoot 'em up fans will lap it up.
Sarah Hibbert DOMARK £24.95 t A close and playable arcade conversion.... 9 GRAPHICS SOUND INSTABILITY PLAYABILITY OVERALL 85% SHORTS With ils stunning parallax and minimal gameplay, Pegasus is set to join the 'Dragon's Lair School Of Stunning Aesthetics And Little Else’.
Split into two distinct game-styles, Pegasus certainly has promise, but the severe lack of variety within its fifty practically identical levels means that it can hardly challenge the likes of R-Type II and Denaris in the shoot 'em up league.
Cast as a brave Knight out to liberate his world from an evil Demon, players must battle their way across the horizon- tally-scrolling levels, killing anything that gets in the way. The twist, though, comes in the Knight's form of transport which, as the title suggests, is the mythical flying steed. Thus, seated upon this noble creature, the player must guide the horse through the many attack waves, dodging the enemy attack waves, loosing off deadly energy bolts to clear a path and collecting the assorted power-ups that are left behind.
However, every other level, the Knight dismounts for a little Black 7 ger-style sword-play and platform tomfoolery.
Switching between these two styles, the only major changes are in the backdrop graphics after every ten stages, and the occasional appearance of a larger creature. Now this wouldn't be too bad if only the actual levels themselves were interesting. Unfortunately, though, the attack waves are predictable and appear in limited formations, whilst the platform sequences are only made taxing with the addition of moving ledges and seemingly-impassable chasms. As you can tell, I’m not exactly enamoured with Gremlin's latest, and it just doesn't measure up to the likes of Switchblade II and Lotus
II. If that much-needed boost of variety had been incorporated then Gremlin would be on to a winner, but, as it is, Pegasus is dull and repetitive fare.

Whilst Twilight's conversion of the little-known Capcom coin-op features all the bells and whistles associated with its arcade counterpart, somehow it comes across as so... well, average. Graphically, it’s nothing short of excellent, with all the
coin-op's sprites faithfully recreated and set against some superb smoothly-scrolling backdrops. The gameplay, too, is virtually identical to that of its arcade parent, and this is where the problems start.
Whilst Mega Twins pits its two child prodigy heroes against all manner of well-drawn and animated characters, the action plods along at such a sedate pace that the gameplay loses any chance it had at addictivity.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not slagging the conversion, but I can't help but feel disappointed with it. The premise is there, and the platform action is riddled with original ideas as the two heroes make their way across the game's eight stages over land, in the air, and under the sea, but the lack of speed means that the game never really gets started. The basic gameplay is similar to that of countless other platform affairs: guide your cutesy sprite across the multi-directional scrolling play area, slashing nasties with your sword and collecting monies and goodies. Every now and then a larger
guardian is brought on both during and at the close of each stage and these can be either slashed to death or stunned with one of your limited supply of smart bombs. However, whilst this makes it sound rather dull, the sheer variety of nasties and the attractive graphical styles of the game's many backdrops ensures that, whilst it won’t set your pulse racing, at least you won't get bored.
I’ve really tried to like Mega Twins and, indeed, there is a lot to recommend about it.
But the slowness of the action, coupled with the slightly repetitive nature of the coin-op (granted an inherited fault) stop the game from becoming a worthwhile purchase and limit it to fans of the coin-op only.

YT s' CISCO HEAT IMAGEWORKS £24.95 t An excellent idea, but an average conversion J GRAPHICS SOUND LASTABIUTY PLAYABILITY 76% 72% 69% 72% OVERALL 70% Arcade manufacturers have come up with some pretty unlikely excuses for race games in the past, but Jaleco’s Cisco Heat takes some beating. Set in California’s celebrated city the action centres around an annual race through the city's streets featuring units from the local police department. This will, no doubt, strike a chord with some of the flat-foots who delight in tearing about the streets of our towns and cities, but may mystify the rest
of the population.
The race takes place across five timed stages through various areas of the city. You begin at the Golden Gate bridge before tearing across to Fisherman's Wharf in the docks, Union Square.The Moscone Centre, somewhere known as Twin Peaks, and Treasure Island.
The thing is, no one seems to have bothered to inform the local population that there are going to be dozens of squad cars tearing about the place, because there is traffic everywhere in the shape of cars and lorries, not to mention SF’s famous yellow trams.
Squeezing the fire button sounds a horn causing noncompetitors to shift out the way, but that doesn't account for the taxis who choose to pull out in front of you, or the roadworks and cones spread around the streets. Add to that the sharp ninety-degree turns that loom up and you have your hands full staying on the road and making the check points for each stage.
Infogrames' latest draws its Americanized name from the seven colours of crystals that make up each of its levels. Without the need for a lengthy scenario.
Seven Colors is a battle for domination played over a field of the aforementioned coloured crystals. Played against the computer or friend, the player must link with adjacent crystals to expand their percentage of the screen. However, by linking with clusters of six or seven like-coloured crystals this process can be greatly speeded up until the first person to cover over 50% wins. The two players are both given a corner, from where their quest for supremacy can begin.
Depending on the chosen difficulty level, the number of crystals between them will vary from hundreds to a mere handful and, using the mouse pointer, each must take a turn in expanding their domain.
Although this doesn't sound particularly taxing. Seven Colors is a pleasant San Francisco is convincingly recreated - you couldn’t be anywhere else as you race up the hills, taking off over the rises and crashing down onto the car’s axle. The graphics are colourful, but you often get a less-than-3D sense of the lorries and cars you pass, particularly when some materialise from cones and trees. The scrolling, too, is less than breathtaking, particularly at top speeds.
This may be a conversion of a '91 coin-op, but it offers little in the way of new thrills that haven’t been seen before in Sega's Outrun variants and none of the humour of the likes of APB. But, most importantly, when you compare it to recent race sims like Geoff Crammond's Grand Prix you’d be hard pushed to find any authentic appeal in it. Just another average .conversion in fact.
Mike Pattenden GRAPHICS 85" SOUND 95 LASTABILITY 75 PLAYABILITY 6 SUSPICIOUS CARGO Text adventures are undergoing something of a renaissance at the moment - Magnetic Scrolls revamp their classics, and Infocom re-release their golden oldies at a snip of the price.
Now Gremlin have jumped on the bandwagon with Suspicious Cargo, a-futuristic story of intrigue and huge 'big brother' corporations.
The plot unravels through the eyes of Jonah Hayes, a seedy character who is 'persuaded' to smuggle to Earth illegal mutant immigrants from Titan. The screen display borrows elements from Magnetic Scrolls' innovative approach, with the text input occupying most of the screen. Alongside are icons that control basic functions: opening doors, picking up objects, etc. The screen is adjustable to fit the needs of the player, but text input is often the best method for getting across ideas to the parser.
Scattered throughout the game are arcade sequences, clumsily called ‘interactives', which include landing on the moon and fighting off boarders. These sequences can be bypassed, which makes their inclusion in an adventure rather redundant (fans of the genre are notoriously unwilling to play arcade games). The plot itself is enticing, although toggling through all those icons to find the one you want gets tedious very quickly.
Suspicious Cargo is by no means a bad game, and it’s good to see software houses paying more attention to adventures of this kind. Where this game falls down, however, is that the Magnetic Scrolls' Collection offers three excellent adventures for around the same price, making this attractive only to those who've exhausted all the other cut-price games. Still, I hope to see more games using the same system, as adventurers deserve new products - just like shoot 'em up buffs.
Matt Regan GRAPHICS 62% SOUND 59% LASTABILITY 70% PLAYABILITY 75% The latest company to jump onto the RPG bandwagon are Swiss-based Linel with Fate - Gales ol Dawn.
The player takes the role of Winwood, a fifth avenue record store owner who, having fallen asleep after a particularly tiring day, awakes to find himself on a primitive alter-Earth.
Winwood's objective is to defeat the mage responsible and return to the mother planet. Although initially he's on his own, it's essential that others are recruited to aid his quest.
In terms of game play, Fate combines elements of Dungeon Master, Galdregon's Domain and Might and Magic, but it doesn't match up to any of these worthy games.
There are numerous options which allow Winwood to control and interact with his environment, most of which are only accessible in certain situations or locations.
My initial reaction to Fate was favourable; it has above average graphics, constant and atmospheric sound effects and a large playing area sug- gesting a game of some merit. Unfortunately, I was a little over-enthusiastic in my assessment. The woodland graphics make mapping extremely difficult, whilst the town graphics are totally unimaginative. Movement is slow, and the game control system is quirky. The large number of commands and menus appeared at first to offer a lot of scope for realism, but. In fact, they just overwhelmed me with seemingly ineffective choices.
Definitely a case of try before you buy.

Set in the Dragonlance milieu, the story follows the heroes of the novels (Caramon, Tanis, etc) who are leading a host of refugees to safety.
Initially, the action is viewed on a map, with icons representing the party and refugees as they move around the hexagonal grid.
Whenever the party discovers something interesting, such as treasure or monsters to duff up, the action switches to an isometric angle with all the combatants represented by fully-animated sprites. As combat takes place in real-time, characters can either be given specific instructions to respond to onscreen events, or can carry out preselected orders - for example, setting the magic user to cast a spell when enemies approach.
SHADOWSQRCERER The time element is crucial to the game, as the group is pursued by Draconians and dragons which catch up and devour the refugees if the player dawdles too long. Using animated graphics in this manner is a vast improvement over the Champions of Krynn school of presentation.
The sound is suitably dramatic, but hearing the same old 'taa-daa- daa' every encounter becomes wince- inducing within a few minutes.
Shadow Sorcerer is very playable, with plenty of little touches to keep you coming back even after your party’s been wiped out for the eighth time. There's little actual role-playing - you're never really forced to make the ethical or even practical decisions that are the essence of RPGs. Also, I'd dispute that this is a kiddies game, as while the system's more straightforward than the old, I can't visualise, say, a ten year-old enjoying or understanding this. Still, for AD&D junkies this is an amusing diversion with a novel outlook on the genre.

Domark were also caught short, it meant their just-released MiG 2S sim was already aged. Unperturbed by this, they girded their loins and approached programmers Simis to produce its sequel.
MiG 29 Superfulcrum keeps ahead of the time. In the game the MiG 29M has been unveiled to the world and loaned to the United Nations as part of a South American drug-busting force.
The missions follow a consistant storyline. First the drug runners’ supply lines have to be cut, followed by the destruction of their airbases and finally their army. This plot works well in terms of generating interesting missions, but I don't think there's enough there to keep combat aces furnished with targets.
Domark have tried to address the problem of playing off detail against •• speed by incorporating user-definable detail modes. The game can be played with 32 colours and 256 lines on screen, or with 16 colours. For more speed the size can be taken down to 200 lines, again with 32 or 16 colours. This novel idea works very well, although the inquisitive mind will find itself constantly swapping between modes to see what the graphics look like.
As usual with Simis, the flight model for the MiG is impeccable. It handles extremely well. The graphics have been updated, and Domark claim that the game features fractals, although it appears that all this means is a few extra triangles in the mountain ranges.
Superfulcrum is a good follow-up to MiG 29, although it suffers from being rather similar. Once again, there's a comprehensive manual enclosed, this time on the world's top fighter planes, but the price Domark are charging does seem a trifle excessive. Still, if you haven’t played the original MiG 29 and are after a challenging flight sim then take a good look at this.

Dan Slingsb) general look works well. There are a variety of punches available, ranging from uppercuts to head blows and blocks, and these are all easily accessed using the joystick and fire button. In addition, if you're coming off worse during a scuffle, the ref will come in and break you up or you can leap out of the fray.
Actually, there’s something very satisfactory about laying into your opponent and, as you both get steadily weaker, blood and gum shields fly until one of you goes down. Then, depending on the pounding you took, you may struggle up again for another bout - real edge of the seat stuff! The trouble is that, as with the real thing, this is all there is to it. What’s there is well done, with large boxers behaving realistically and offering slightly different tactics, but it still boils down to a slugging match with the fastest fighter winning. However, somehow I get the feeling that, even if
Storm had added more moves to the existing ones, the game would still boil down to the same thing. Entertaining enough in the short-term, and undoubtedly better than the coin-op, Final Blow is the best of its kind but a feather-weight in the lasting appeal department.
Steve Merrett
* * - jj * »* Up until now, the only semi-decent boxing sim has
been the humble Spectrum version of Elite's Frank Bruno game.
For some reason, whilst the martial arts aspect of facial
rearranging is well catered for, binary pugilism Amiga-style
has never taken off.
However, in converting Final Blow. Storm have taken the risk and, to an extent, pulled it off. I was never really a fan of the Final Blowcoin-op as its large sprites disguised a very run-of-the-mill game.
Somehow, though, Storm have managed to Inject a modicum of playability into the Amiga game, creating a repetitive but playable conversion.
The original coin-op sported five boxers, each of whom had to be beaten before the title was yours.
Storm’s game, however,now sports a tournament, a two-player mode and an expanded gym of ten would-be champs. The actual bouts against these guys takes place over two rounds within a horizontally-scrolling ring, with the player's on-screen persona represented by one of the largest sprites the Amiga has housed. The movement of these towering fighters is essential to the atmosphere and, whilst some of the animations are a little odd, the VuUUt-D Old coin-ops never die, they just reappear years later sporting a new lick ot paint and little else. Such is the case with Taito's Oix which made a
reappearance in the arcades a couple ot years ago under the monicker ot Volfied. The graphics and sound had been tarted up a little and the gameplay tweaked, but it was essentially the same game.
Now the spruced-up ver- !sion makes its debut on the Amiga courtesy of those tine folk at Empire. Each of the 16 levels consists of a single screen packed to the gills with a variety of deadly Alienesque characters. Your task is to guide a small ship around the screen and successfully capture more than 80 percent of the total area by completely encircling it with a trail left behind by your craft’s exhaust. Contact with the nasties sends an electric pulse speeding after you which is only extinguished when another section of the screen is captured. Also, a number of power-ups are present and
these can be collected to help kill the hostile smaller aliens or to freeze the action for a number of seconds. The biggest aliens are the toughest to kill and the only way to defeat them is to hem them in and send them to a fiery grave once you’ve passed the all-important 80 percent mark - this triggers a catacalysmic explosion and marks the end of that particular stage.
Each level is a faultless reproduction of the original coin-op and comes with futuristic 16-colour backdrops and a bizarre collection of alien nasties to destroy including a gigantic killer ladybird and an eyeball-spewing skull.
However, the gameplay is rather repetitive and there really isn’t much difference between each level except for the graphics, causing me to doubt the game's longterm appeal.

Manifesting itself in the form of a strategy-cum-RPG, Hard Nova does little to get pulses racing. Combat and movement are in one of three forms: by foot exploring the bars, clubs and space stations, by hovership skimming over the planets surface and by space travel. Every form of transport involves a separate on-screen control system and an antagonistic foe - just point and click with the mouse.
All the worlds can be explored and interaction with most creatures is possible (if rather unrewardingl) and is vital to glean the information necessary to progress further.
The graphics are very simple and tiny undefined sprites do not make things easy to look at. A combination of keyboard and mouse control furthers your frustration as the game crawls along like a snail through glue.
The foot patrol sections are particularly dull as Nova and A'kri adopted a two-man team giving you the option of changing personae between them. They wander around the flat mapped screen at a painstaking pace collecting info, money and weapons. Unfortunately, the constant disk access makes the game almost unplayable on single drive machines and, although there’s a lot to explore, few people will have the patience or willpower to carry on.

However, you’re not unarmed, and can destroy such nasties by shooting them with your heart (gruuuueeee, get me a bucket) or a handy flamethrower (that’s more like it), depending on your character's particular elemental power. In addition, the character's can run, jump and climb, whilst the good Captain is the only hero capable of flight.
The main problem with Captain Planet is that it's just so ordinary. OK, so the licence isn't exactly the hottest one doing the rounds, but everything about the game just comes across as so... bland. It's certainly playable, and the platform sections do offer a lasting, if repetitive, challenge, but the assorted meanies are too persistent and make progress infrequent and the game frustrating.

Obviously not, as Captain Planet doesn't feature a bad cell in his body, and is instead made up of five schoolkids CAPTAIN PLANi i who all care for the environment in their own sweet way. Still, despite the Captain's failure to grab the ’younger
generation’s’ attention, Mindscape’s game is finally here in all its colourful glory. Written by coding veteran, Tony Crowther, Captain Planet is a six-stage platform affair, which also contains traces of shoot ’em up action. Despite the six characters (including Planet himself), the basics of the gameplay remain virtually identical, though, and involve the negotiation of several platform sections as the heroes attempt to collect a number of objects before entering a linked blasting section.
The game is played over a series of gaudy but attractive scrolling areas, which are inhabited by hordes of evil nasties.
These are overseen by the evil gang of Looten Plunder, Sly Beamed down to the planet Ixion from the Legion Ship, Cisskei, aspiring Captain Ku-Kabul has to face the dangers and tests specifically placed on this planet in order to prove himself worthy of Leadership. Failing any of the tests will end his career as a Legion-Command Officer. . .

Are you Ork enough?__ Screen Shots from the Amiga Version IRON LORD arms and the chance to barter with locals for information and advice. All this leads up to a mother of all battles between your amassed troops and the usurper's cronies, where the game enters a slightly wargame-esque realm, with the two attempting to outwit each other strategically.
Despite its complexity and depth, Iron Lord is surprisingly easy to get into and play.
There’s plenty to sustain interest and, even now, it shows up a lot of modem releases in terms of value for money.
Recommended.
82% 81% The first game to bring Lemmings heroes, DMA Design, to the fore, Menace still plays as well today as it did on its release two-and-a-half years ago. A simple horizontal scroller, with the usual waves of odd-looking meanies followed by the obligatory end-of-level guardians, Menace is a treat to look at and its simplicity makes it a joy to play.
There are six levels in all, taking the player through detailed cityscapes and lush forests, and these are brimming with all manner of aliens and installations.
Initially armed with a paltry laser and a limited supply of energy, the player must destroy as many of these as possible. If a complete wave is destroyed, a silver plaque appears which is, in fact, your extra armaments. As shots are pumped into these they subsequently transform into such useful goodies as lasers, cannons, shields and extra energy.
Menace is still a real cracker, and whilst it isn’t as technically polished as the likes of Denaris and R-Type II, it is every bit as playable and for the asking price is a genuine steal.
UBI Soft's attempt at the Defender Of The Crown throne wasn't as easy to get into, but featured far more depth than the Cinemaware game. Played over a large map area, the basic aim of the game is to recover your father's kingdom from the evil despot currently masquerading as King. Proving your merit as the titular Iron Lord, you must cross the land perfecting your many skills in sub-games featuring arm-wrestling, sword fighting, and archery.

48% SIZZLERS OUT NOW £9.99 84% THE HIT SQUAD OUT NOW £79.99 GAME OF THE MONTH MAX (Maximum Action Xtra).
As compilations go, it has to be said that this is a belter. Comprising Storm's brilliant SWIV, and their not-so-hot Saint Dragon, and backed up by Turrican II and Night Shill, this is the perfect compilation. SWIV needs virtually no introduction, but must surely rate as one of the best vertical scrollers to hit the Amiga. It's smooth, it's fast, and it's packed with variety - all in one load, too. Saint Dragon isn't quite so hot, but is still a fair conversion of the Jaleco coin-op. Controlling a Dragon-like ship, complete with bendy tail, there are five levels waiting for your attention,
with a huge guardian appearing at the end. Although it’s every bit as polished as SWIV, somehow Saint Dragon doesn't come across as successfully and, whilst it's by no means a toady, it's the weakest game on the pack.
Turrican II offers some more blasting lunacy.
Rainbow Arts’ armour-clad hero once again explores a vast eight-way-scrolling play area in search of something to shoot. Armed with everything from mines to lasers, he must blast his way through the graphically- excellent world until he can depose the guardians (surprise, surprise) that are dotted throughout.
Although very similar to the original, Turrican II sports smoother graphics, more armaments, and is slightly faster. Definitely one of the better blasters to grace the 16-bit scene. Finally, we leave the space flak of shoot 'em ups-ville behind and opt for a little platform-based nonsense courtesy of Lucasfilm's Night Shift. A nice original slant on the platform theme, Night Shift is set around a huge toy-making machine which must be constantly stoked and fed with the raw materials necessary for the production of miniature Lucasfilm stars.
However, mistimed equipment leads to Indiana Vaders and Obi Wan 2D2s, so constant maintenance is needed. The nicest thing about Night Shift is the genuine need for skill - something a lot of platformers neglect. Creating a successful batch of toys gives a real sense of achievement, and the addition of paint and larger orders on later stages, extends the game's longevity perfectly.
This is a stunning compilation, which has three very different, but very entertaining shoot 'em ups and mild relief in the form of Night Shift. Even if you own one of the games on this compilation, this is an essential purchase and is excellent value for money. Ask Santa for it now.
US GOLD OUT NOW £27.99 94% GAME OF THE MONTH BUBBLE This is the game that started if all. Little Bub and Bob, transformed into two bubble-blowing Brontosauri and trapped within 100 nasty-filled screens. Thus, with only their soapy breath to aid them, they must encapsulate the errant baddies in a freshly- produced bubble and then pop it, sending the creature to its certain death. Along the way, lettered bubbles appear which, when collected in sequence, spell out the word EXTEND, granting the player with a much-needed extra life, and bypassing that particular screen. And that’s it really. The
graphics are very simple and, although it is starting to look rather dated now, Bubble Bobble still has what it takes in the gameplay stakes. As a one-player Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear.
What more can be said? It's got great graphics, no less than thirty-two levels of parallax and... it’s complete crap. As a debut game for development team, Reflections, Beast ms a credible effort. Everything about it is polished, but the minimal 'hop, skip, and jump’ gameplay leaves a lot to be desired. This is a major pity as some of the larger nasties which inhabit the game's darker recesses are really impressive, and simply standing next to them, punching them occasionally, hardly sets the adrenaline flowing. The basic aim of the game, for those of you who have either only just bought
your Amiga or have been walking around with your heads up your bum for the last two years, revolves around the solving of a series of object-related puzzles.
However, as your on-screen persona races to and fro to solve these, large flocks of monsters ORE LEMMINGS!

In tact, it it wasn't tor the Tin Tin, Haddock, and Snowy sprites, there would be little to pin this i a Tin Tin licence. Starting in a 3D asteroid field, the player must steer their space rocket
to safety, where the game turns into a slightly more interesting platform-cum- chase game. The dastardly Colonel Boris is planting bombs within the rocket in an attempt to blow Tin Tin and his pals away, so our blond-haired hero must find Boris, deck him and detuse his bombs. The advent ot zero gravity makes things a little harder and whilst this section is quite good tun, the whole package comes over as a little insubstantial. One of the weakest licences ever, and no better as a budget release.
ACTION 16 OUT NOW £4.99 29% B eleased a mere ten months ago, Digital Integration's Bcrack at crossing a flight sim with arcade action is once again brought out of the hangar. In control of the Uul Advanced Tactical Rghter of the title, a variety of missions set over eight world maps await your destructive capabili- ties - unfortunately, entire fleets of submarines, enemy planes and tanks are also expecting you! Dl’s attempt to bridge the gap between a sim and arcade playability works fairly comfortably, with a modicum of strategy necessary for the planning of missions and an itchy trigger
finger il to take out the many communication bases and enemy . Graphically, ATFH s nothing special (after all, it is a basic 8- but the screen rate is relatively fast and keeps the action flowing at a decent pace.

In fact, out of the four games gracing Super Sim Pack (blimey, I bet that name took some thinking up!), only Palace's International 3D Tennis is worth bothering with. The other three - Crazy Cars II, Italy 1990, and Airtorne Ranger- all came and went without leaving a trace; hardly surprising when you consider how ordinary they are. Palace’s Tennis is a real blinder, with programmers Sensible Software opting for vector players rather than
sprites, and the result is one of the most realistic sims you could ever hope for. Crazy Cars II... Italy 1990?
Ahem, 'nuff said. Finally, Airborne Ranger was Microprose’s attempt to combine Commando with tactics, and whilst it is ini- tially fun, somehow the depth of play just isn't apparent. A weak us qold OUT NOW £27 90 collection, that is vastly over-priced for what little it offers.

AN IDEAL WORLD Utopia takes the ideas initially developed in Sim City, and expands upon them to create whole new vistas ot game-playing enjoyment. In some ways, the game is simpler than its older French progenitor but, in many regards, it's infinitely more subtle and complex.
The addition of combat adds complications immediately and, challenging though this may be, unless you know what you're doing, Utopia can be a frustrating and time-consuming business.
STARTING OUT There are two possible opening strategies that you can adopt. Which ever one you choose will dictate how the game develops for the first few hours, and it may well decide your ultimate fate. You can embark upon a plan of rapid expansion, developing your military skills early, and adopting an aggressive stance towards any aliens who happen to share your planet. Or alternatively, you can take a more passive stance, merely repelling enemy attacks, and placing your citizen's Quality of Life (QOL) as your primary concern. I favour the former strategy, so that's what I'll describe
here.
Establish laboratories within the first month, and start building spaceship tac- ] tories. Start labs off with a grant of
10. OOOGR and ensure that, from the word go, each one has the
maximum complement of scientists. This will slow down
construction, but the weapons that'll be developed will make
it worth your while. Commence work on larger spaceships as
soon as possible. Once built, they're going to need large
supplies of fuel, so buy this whenever the market is
favourable. Don't bother with tanks, land-mines will suffice.
ARMS RACE At this stage build as many weapons as you can, as quickly as you can. Pay particular attention to the defense of your _ colony; once the enemy becomes aware 1 of you, they'll attack with frequency.
Surround your city with alternating rings 1 of laser turrets - plasma guns later on -1 and land mines. The latter are particu- I larly usetul because you can watch the I enemy attack then drop the mines in I their paths.
Although useful against air attacks, I missiles are far too costly and can only I Few strategy games are as addictive as Gremlin's Utopia. Mat Broomfield shares a few tips to help make life a little easier.
Illlilini taiinrrir IlHllllW1 Trading can help stretch your limited resources. Wait until market conditions are favourable, and then off-load any excess production and sell at a profit. Buy cheap, but sell at exorbitant prices.
Be used once. The other disadvantage is that you have to launch them manually, whereas turrets automatically shoot at any airborne raider who strays within their range. But don't just leave laser and plasma turrets to rotate on their own. Position them so that they're all T R A D 1 N G P R 1 C ITEM MAXIMUM MINIMUM BUY BELOW FUEL 20 04 13 FOOD 20 05 08 ORE 10 01 05 GEMS 275 64 120 WEAPONS 30 01 10 TECH GOODS 30 01 10 Above: Laser and plasma turrets, guarded by land mines, help glue your colony that special ring ot confidence.

Lacing outwards and primed.
The sooner you send out spies, the sooner you'll receive useful intelligence about the enemy. When financing intelligence operations, you'll have to provide a constant kitty of over 20.000GR to receive the highest level of information.
As you'll have gathered, this aggressive policy requires a lot of money to implement, so raise the tax-rate to at least 20%. Although in the short-term this will annoy your citizens, it helps to bring long-term stability. Or why not trade? Every item on the computer undergoes price fluctuations. Buy cheap and sell high I POPULATION EXPLOSION It also helps if you accept all offers of additional colonists from Earth. Although you have to pay for them, they represent additional tax revenue, builders, technical staff and procreation material!
Whilst your colony is growing, try to keep your citizens as happy as possible.
If you allow their food, power or air supplies to run out frequently, you'll hamper their growth. Visit the Administrator often; if Production falls below Usage, immediately build more of whatever s needed.
If you’re trying to locate ore or fuel using the global map, it can often be difficult to find the mineral deposits once you return to the game screen. If you position markers over the deposits on the enlarged global map, they'll be much easier to find.
ON MANOEUVRES When you discover the location of the enemy's base, don't immediately send all of your forces in for a do-or-die assault. Your spies can glean valuable information from the defeat of a small number of your men, which will enable you to gain a more decisive victory later.
After the initial buzz of activity, I tend to take things very gradually, slowly building my armies and resources until I feel ready to launch my ultimate assault.
Perhaps you can do things differently, but hopefully these tips will give you the start you need.

Animation il H E L P L 1 1 HI z Welcome to what surely must
rate as the most useful aid to trapped adventurers in any mag.
This month's column is fair bustling with all the latest news
and stories, and is backed up by the ever-useful Helpline
where your questions are answered. So, if you are trapped by a
demon or stuck behind a locked door, drop us a scroll... THE
GUIDING LIGHT GOES DIM For some time now a group of adven
ture enthusiasts have been manning the telephone helpline
called Guiding Light.
Baffled adventure players could call this number and have their problems solved instantly instead of waiting for a reply from the many magazine sen ices. The high cost of the information provided by such telephone services discourages most players by making use of them and it's probably for this reason that the number of calls received by Guiding Light have not been sufficient to support the service. Reluctantly, the outfit have been forced to scale down their operation to only providing a taped message containing hints and tips for arcade games. However, it is planned to reinNEWS
Knightmare, the new RPG from Mindscape, should be on the streets by the time you read this - which will be great then, but damned frustrating now!
The game was designed and programmed by Tony Crowther who brought us Captive - the science fiction equivalent of Dungeon Master. I have just received a disk from Tony which is crammed with the final artwork for the game and it all looks very impressive.
The dragons, witches and wizards which are waiting to kick your teeth out in this graphic RPG are beautifully detailed and animated, and when they are combined with the tried and tested game system which was used for Captive, the result is sure to be a winner.
State the adventure helpline in the near future by allowing the ¦ caller to use a voice- V activated query system which will handle adventure games.
V92 AND ALL THAT I don't want to be too anti-European about this, but every time I receive a game which comes from either France or Germany my heart sinks just a little. I sometimes wonder if their game-writers are on the same planet as the rest of us.
With the exception of Delphine Software, who have produced a string of chart toppers such as Cruise For A Corpse and Operation Stealth, there are a few distinctly dodgy Continental offerings going around. Do you remember a graphical adventure called Ooze? As I recall, it was extremely difficult for magazines to obtain a copy of that German game for reviewing and, in hindsight, there may have been a very good reason why the publishers didn't want it reviewed before the punters paid for it.
Two new games have now been released from the same stable, although I think it more probable that they escaped.
The first game is a tale of terror and unbelievable horror, but more about its graphics later! Lords of Doom is the name and its storyline places you in charge of a small group of people who are stranded in a town which is infested with ghouls, werewolves and other creepy characters. Using a simple point- and-click interface you can find lots of food and weapons lining the shelves of the abandoned shops and offices to help you in your quest. The text is in the 'English As She Is Spoke’ style of writing which usually accompanies such games and it brings lots of unintentional humour to
otherwise turgid prose. As you are attacked by some foul creature the game will say, 'Don't Yell At Me, You Bloody Arse!' Just the sort of game to show the Vicar. The graphics are the best that an Atari ST could provide, which is to say 'below average'. If you are a fan of The Mummy, The Werewolf or even Alf then you might find something of interest, but there are much better games around.
The second offering from Starbyte is Crime Time which fits nicely into the Who-Dunnit (and Who-Cares?) Genre of adventure games. Seedy hotel rooms, empty whisky glasses and full ash-trays are the backdrop for this grimy, detective story. The first of the game's two disks is dedicated to a spectacular graphic introduction which looks and sounds great. The noise of the rain as it pours over the stark, backstreet buildings is very impressive. On its own the introduction would be worthy of being part of some Public Domain Megademo Disk and I liked it a lot. Unfortunately, all AMIGA COMPUTING

and now critic's choice as the Number One Computer Game!
AMIGA COMPUTING Brilliantly balanced between complexity and playability - MegaTraveller t's it does in this case is point out just how dismal the graphics ot the main game are. To give the game the atmosphere ot an old Hollywood movie, your view of the surroundings is shown from oddangled camera shots, and the text is lull ot wise-guy quips, but none of this can disguise the tact that the game has nothing new to otter and the whole concept is dated.
AEGIS VISIONARY Scratch the surface of any gameplayer and I guarantee that you'll find a frustrated gamewriter. Sooner or later we all get the urge to write an adventure or role playing game, and that is why game-writing utilities are very popular.
The Aegis Visionary package promises that it will make you, 'A top game developer overnight. Enabling you to create detailed adventure games using animat ion, sound and graphics with this easy- to-use development system'. Hmmm.
I have only spent a few hours with this package and therefore I would be the first to admit that I still know very little about it, but here is a short list of things which I have uncovered.
Basically, what you are buying is a Compiler, Linker and Debugger software suite. Just like BASIC or Pascal or Fortran, this is a program language containing statements and useful routines which you can use to construct your game. If you are not a programmer, or at least someone who is familiar with the concepts of writing software, you ain't going to find this easy. The manual recommends some good art packages which you will need beforff-you even - start - because there isn't one in this box! It also recommends some good sound sampling and sound editor programs which you will also need
if you want to include sound effects. It even recommends a good text editor which is needed to type in your program, because one isn't available either.
The software can be installed on a hard disk, which is just as well because I suspect that you'll very quickly go stark raving mad if you try and use it from a floppy disk. I tried to carry out a few simple operations using a system with two floppy drives and I soon became disillusioned. The next hurdle (which I find unforgivable) is that all of the utilities which are provided must be run from a CLI window. This package does not boot up into the user-friendly environment of windows, icons and pull-down commands as you might expect, it's all a slog at the workbench level. A sample game
is provided on the disk, but unfortunately. It has only been supplied as the source code files.
Oday... pful pnt software HOW TO USE THE ADVENTURE HELPLINE Write to me, Tony Gill, at Adventure Helpline, CU Amiga, Priory Court, 30-32 Farringdon Lane, London EC1R 3AU, with your problems and any useful hints you can give in response to those readers languishing in these pages! Make sure you include your full name and address, and I will do my best to answer your problems.
This is very useful in helping you understand how a game should be written, but you won t be seeing anything exciting until all of the files have been found in one of the lower directories, compiled, linked and stored on a specially-prepared disk. Even during this operation the software informed me that it couldn't find some of the files it needed from the C: directory - which wasn't surprising as I had no hard disk fitted! Despite wrestling with the software for two hours I never did manage to get the demo game to run which either says something rude about my abilities or the manual.
Maybe the language is magnificent, and all manner of wonderful games can be written with it, but it will take a lot of time to prove it.
On the other hand, if an interface had been provided which presented the list of options more simply, and if a ready to run' demo was provided which inspired .
Enthusiasm, it would have dramatically changed the whole package.
QUEST III GARBAGE Andrew Kendall of Telford has found a getaway ship called the Aluminium Mallard' which is stuck in the bowels of the Space Quest III Garbage Ship. Far from being a 'quick goose!', the ship appears to be a 'dead duck’. To get our boy flying again (and t o prevent him going completely 'quackers') he's going to need a power source, electric wire and a warp motivator. To get the power reactor you must take a ride in the moving buckets, stand up on the conveyer belt, then jump onto the overhead beam.
Walk along the beam until you find the chute which can be used as a slide down to the basement. Follow the cable which supplies the electricity to the lamp and there you'll find the power source.
The cable you require is hanging in the metal tunnel to the right of the starting screen. The final item required is the heavy metal motivator which is lying on the floor on the start screen. Unless you have the muscles of 'Big Arnie’ (and more from him later on in this game) you will need the services of the mechanical grabber which rides the overhead rail.
Use this powerful little beast's electromagnet to pick the engine up and transport it to your ship.
MORE GARBAGE Mike Lotte of the Netherlands is up to his armpits in trouble within the Future Wars sewers. A large, blubbering heap of slimy, alien scum is threatening a woman and child and he has nothing but a box of fuses to hurl at it. What Mike needs is a flame-spouting, blubber-frying blowtorch. He also needs a powerful magnifying glass to help him spot this tiny weapon which is hidden amongst the rubble of the ruined city which lies above him. The blowtorch is hidden in the bottom-right corner on the tirst screen of the ruined city.
POLICE QUEST SECRETS An anonymous writer from ‘Somewhere’, who is too embarrassed to have his ignorance and his name displayed around the world, has written for help with the initial problems in Police Quest II. Despite searching every nook and cranny ot the Police Station he can’t find his tield kit and he has no idea how to find out the secret passwords which unlock the data in the computer system.
The all-important tield kit is in hiding from you in the Main Hall. Walk to the back-right corner (en-route to the shooting range) where you'll see the corner of a wooden desk. Look behind the counter where you'll find a bin. Unlock the bin and get your field kit. If you look at the Captain's desk in the Homicide Office you'll spot the papers which contain the computer passwords. Don't be a dork and try to pick the papers up or the Captain will bite your head off, just look at them where they are.
THE SEARCH FOR NIKADEMUS One of our Australian readers whose plight has touched my stony heart is Sam Boyes of Melbourne because he has both RPG and money problems.
Sam wrote to say that we had better help him because it costs a fortune to write to England and he doesn't even get any pocket money. His simple question, 'Where can I find Nikademus in Phantasie III?' Does not have such a simple answer. Firstly you must make your way to the Castle of Dark. Here the Key of Dark is needed (unless your party is evil) to enter the castle and find your way to a spot where choice number four will enable you to teleport to the exit. Here on the Third Level of the Netherworld lies the Castle of Nikademus. Should you be in the unhappy position that you don't have
the Wand I suggest you go looking for it in the Pendragon Archives, but you will need very strong characters to reach it.
If you already have such a group it may be a good idea to introduce them to your Father. They may be able to persuade him to solve your pocket money problem as well. Just a thought!
SIERRA'S QUEST FOR GLORY Sierra's RPG, Quest lor Glory, generally underwhelmed most of the game reviewers, but Angela Bird from New Malden showed her independence and bought it anyway. She found to her cost that this is a frustrating and slow-moving game which can reduce hairy adventurers to tears, but, undaunted, Angela soldiered on until she finally came to a dead end in the cavern with the waterfalls. There is a small airhole here which needs to be blocked, but there appears to be nothing around which will do the trick. You’re going to like this solution Angela - but not a lot! Magic is
what you need to solve your problem. Aim a force bolt at the base of the rock surround and this should cause it to collapse and close up. At this point you should save your game as the next bit may take a few attempts.
BORED TO DEATH WITH LARRY II I've always thought that the best definition of a bore is:- ‘when he leaves the room - it feels as if someone interesting has just come in.' Micheal Watson of Coventry has been Looking lor Love with Larry Laffer and has become trapped aboard a plane by a big nerd who could bore for England, and there appears to be no escape. Wei,I Mike, ] the best method of defence is to attack and bore right back. Before boarding the plane search the desk in the departure lounge and you'll find a bundle of religious pamphlets that even a Jehova Witness wouldn't dare push
through your letterbox. Give these mind-numbing items to the bore and they will keep him happy for hours. If you can't find the pamphlets you could try using an Atari Users' Manual.
BARDS TALE II Roberta Campanella has sent me a bundle of solid gold hints and solutions for Bard's Tale II which answer a few outstanding problems from past issues.
The old Mage wants the answers FREEZE and PLEASE (June issue). To awaken the Rock Man speak the name KAEDRER (August issue). The Nospen Ring disarms all spinners and the Master Key is needed to open portals.
Clever as she may be, Roberta has come unstuck on Level 3 of the Destiny Stone Dungeon. She doesn't know the answer to the riddle, ‘The one of whom is great in fame. Restore him to his proper name?' Lucky for her I, too, know a few tricks and the name she seeks is: ARKAST.
CADAVER - THE DRAGON SLAYER If you want to get anywhere in the dangerous world of adventures you must first graduate in the basic art of dragon-bashing. Unfortunately, Pedro Miguel of Porto in Portugal hasn't completed the basic art of bunny-bashing and consequently is well and truly stuffed at the final section of Cadaver's Level 1. If takes more than a brave heart and a strong sword arm to kill the Dragon. The only weapon which will ruffle this monster's scales is the Massacre Spell. It's a long and difficult task to obtain this powerful charm, but here's how you do it. Go to the altar
of Lord Carolus in the room south of the Chapel. Drop the urn (which you got from a nearby chest) on the altar and collect a spell. This is the Massacre Spell, but it will be unknown until you can read it. Go south then west to the Crematorium and place the urn of Ragnar on the slab to fill it with blood. Return to inner sanctum and drop flask on altar to collect the key spell.
Use key in west keyhole. Enter and cast Dispel Trap on chest. Collect the Runic Stone then head north into Library where you'll find the Map Spell. Return to the Inner Sanctum and drop the unknown spell. Cast the Read Magic upon the Unknown Spell and this will reveal its true name.

I Bit, Disks 1399, 1400, ***** WRESTLEMANIA Reflecting just how popular Sky TV's WWF has become, we've received yet another three-disk slideshow devoted to the game’s severely bloated and excessively fat wrestling stars. To the accompaniment of the WWF signature tune, there are countless mono pics ot, among others, Jake ‘the Snake' Roberts, Earthquake, The Mountie, Sgt.
Slaughter, the British Bulldog, Texas Tornado and the rest of their hyper active chums. Put together by Turbo Mart and Paul Bowler, the disks are available for the price ot three blank disks and an SAE sent to: 13, Taylors Mews.

Cast your grey cells back to the beginning of console entertainment as we know it and you might remember a supreme strategy blaster called Combat. Later to reappear as an addictive coin-op of the same name, the Atari game featured two tanks confronting each other over a variety ot different mazes.
The winner of each round was the tank which could destroy the other machine first.
It was an incredibly simple idea which made for a really addictive two- player game. And now, reincarnated as Tank Battle by Robin Edwards,
• _ we have the 1990s version which offers a choice of five
different mazes in which to do battle. With reverse and forward
controls and an unlimited supply of bullets, this one'll have
you playing until dawn.
PD Soft, L16, *** GET WASTED In their press release, NBS described Wastelands as being almost too good tor PD, and who am I to disagree?! Domark's 3D Construction Kit has spawned an ever increasing number of games and this is definitely the best so far. Set in the desert wastelands of Arizona, the US’s most secretive nuclear base, Europa, has been taken over by a malevolent computer intelligence. This selfsame electronic deity has taken control of Project Joshua, the most devastating nuclear warhead yet devised, and has begun a countdown to its launch.
It's up to you to save the day and infiltrate the nuclear complex, defeat the in-built security systems, shutdown the nuclear core and destroy the computer's memory. Armed with a powerful laser and a finite energy level, it’s a race against time as the'Joshua missile begins its countdown. The 3D graphics are excellent and very detailed and add immensely to the on-going action. Put together by Artworx Design, who I think we’ll be hearing a lot more about in the future, it’s an extremely polished product that’ll keep you engrossed for hours. Superb! NBS, Disk G206, ***** TENNANT'S EXTRA Fans
of the Pet Shop Boys will definitely want to get their mitts on a couple of disks which feature the gruesome twosome's unique blend ot electronic pop music. Over the years, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe have rung up no less than 19 top twenty hits and have successfully exported their particular brand of pop to the rest of the world. Now, two enterprising groups have come up with their own interpretations of the dynamic duo’s hits. The best effort is undoubtedly the one put together by the enigmatic Shed which features Heart, Hit the Music, Rent and It's A Sin for your money. The other
offering, Manix Mix. Is based around Always On My Mind with samples from other songs thrown in for good measure.
PD Direct, PDM131 (Shed's version), PDMI32, *** & ** PLAY IT LOUD The magnificent Bass MC returns with his latest techno-blast, Subliminal Vision. This time around, Bass hits us with a raw-edged techno beat accompanied by some weird and wonderful psychedelic colour cycling routines.
Brilliant.
Those whacky funsters, the Cracking-llp-Crew, have come up with a disk featuring three digitised black and white sequences taken from the recent ‘In Bed With Madonna’ movie. These feature the high- priestess of pop doing rather strange and unnatural things with a bottle of pop(!) And jiggling her more than ample assets at the camera. If you don’t need to sit down after this one, you ain't human... 17 Bit, 1404, * ALOHA BOTTLE AIR RAID The Sl-W-inspired sequel to Raid has just blasted onto the PD circuit and looks almost inden- tical to Storm's classic blast as well as incorporating sound
obviously imported from the original shoot 'em up. Unfortunately, the gameplay isn't a patch on SWIV, so all you skinflints hoping to pick up a bargain-price clone will be sorely disappointed. I’m amazed the team behind the game have been able to get away with what is, in effect, a blatant rip-off.
Virus Free, Disk Mission X,** MINIERMAGK An old Jeff Minter classic from his VIC 20 days has been updated for Ihe Amiga in the form of Steve Bennett's Lazerzone clone with 16-bit graphics and sound bolted on for good measure. Ranged over 20 levels, each player takes control of two guns, one mounted on a vertical ramp, the other fixed lo a horizontal rail. As objects fly into view, the aim is to blast them to bits before they can come into contact with your weaponry. With a variety of add-ons, including a cloaking device, rapid fire and a protective shield available for purchase after each
level, the guns are moved along their axis by moving the joystick in the required direction.
Up and down movements shift the vertical- mounted gun, while side to side movements adjust the position of the horizontal blaster.
Very addictive.
17Bit, AMOS iicenseware, LPD43, *** FAVE RAVE Throw on your favourite baggy t-shirt, lace up your cheap immo trainers, sup a gallon of Lucozade, take some rather dodgy- looking smarties and get your dance pants on ‘cos this disk is just brilliant. One ol the best dance tracks ot recent times, Prodigy's Charly has been sampled by the mysteriously-named Zee and stuck on a disk with two other hard-edged techno blasts lor your delectation. Licensed exclusively to 17-Bit, Techno Attack One would certainly have ’em rockin' down at the Macclesfield Computer Club disco (I kid you notl). Wig out...

be in Sterling DEMO OF THE MONTH DEMOS THREE-DEE If you've
been thinking about splashing out on Domark's 3D Construction
Kit, but have wanted to see what it can do before mortgaging
your house for a copy, then take a look at Rescue by P.
Ramsell. The game has been put together using the Construction
Kit and contains an extremely detailed 3D environment. The aim
is to rescue the kidnapped President who is currently being
held hostage by a ruthless band of international terrorists.
To aid you in your search, a special floppy disk has been
hidden in a row of houses - finding this will give you some
clues to the President’s whereabouts. Impressive stuff.
17 Bit, Disk LPD41, ? ** GULF CONFLICT The Gulf War might be history, but Eric Schwartz has come up with a neat skit on the 'Mother of All Wars'.
The hunt is on for Saddam Hussein. A Stealth Fighter comes into view using its highly-advanced surveillance apparatus to scan the desert looking for signs of the gone-to-ground Iraqi leader. Finally, locating him hiding out in a small wooden hut, the Fighter lets rip with one of its hi-tech guided missiles. As the missile races to its target, it suddenly stops outside the hut and. In true Loony Tunes-style.
Knocks on the door. Inside, Ol' Saddam is busy reading the local paper with 'We've Won' plastered on the front page. When he goes to answer the door, the missile promptly explodes and blasts Saddam to bits.
The animation is very stylish and incredibly smooth. Watch out for a brilliant colour-cycling routine as the plane plummets through the sky.
Despite its jingoistic overtones, this is another top-notch animation from the American animation maestro and should grace anyone's collection.

Nothing original here, unfortunately, but there's still some interesting stencil vectors on show as well as a selection of fractals and peeling graphic screens which loop over to reveal their wares. Listen out, also, for the clever use of a baby's cry in the final piece of music - weird, but clever. NBS, Disk D721, ** BATTLEAXE P.D.

A kaleidoscope of colours and a cracking example of copper manipulations and plasma effects.
PD Soft, 1988, *** GERSHY BARS Fans of Woody Allen's Manhatten movie will already be familiar with the stirring melodies of one of this century's greatest composers, the incomparable George Gershwin. Ol' George was responsible for more hit musicals than both Tim Rice and Lloyd Webber combined as well as composing a number of more serious works including ‘An American In Paris’, 'Second Rhapsody' and the smash opera, 'Porgy and Bess'. One of his most famous and evocative works, Rhapsody in Blue, has been recreated on the Amiga courtesy of the talented Rob Baxter. If the name sounds familiar,
that's because Rob has also produced disks featuring the works of Debussy, Vivaldi, Mozart and Bach. And not a sampled sound amongst 'em.
17Bit, 1402, GRAND PRIX CHALLENGE Although the only Grand Prix sim worth playing is Microprose's superb new game by Geoff Crammond (reviewed last issue In Screen Scene), management tans could do worse than pick up a copy of this AMOS game designed by Steve Rennocks. A myriad number of options Include the ability to affect the skill of your pit crew and equip your car with state-of-the-art equipment.
17-Bit, Disk LPD44, ** COUNTDOWN Here's a fun maths program tor the under tens which combines elementary mathematics with a sci-fi theme.
Split into fours parts, the first level sets the player a number of sums to solve. Each time a correct answer is entered, a countdown indicator moves closer to zero until, finally, a stationary space ship bursts into life and blasts off. The second stage features a spot of interplanetary spacehopping and the third a meteor storm, both of which involve another round of sum-solving. The fourth and final stage is reminiscent of Gravitar, in that a tiny space vessel has to be guided down to a safe landing using highly-sensitive thrusters.
At the beginning of the game, the player can opt to answer questions on multiplication, addition, subtraction or division and there's also a choice of three difficulty levels. Definitely recommended for younger readers to help improve their basic maths in a fun way. Let's have more of these. 17Bit,LPD3T, *** REVENGE IS SWEET After giving TCS's Humdinger game compilation a rave review in last issue's Demos, I promptly forgot to include their address! For those of you who want to get your hands on this 41 -game double disk set, you'll find TCS’s address in the Suppliers' Guide box at the start
of this column. And while I'm at it, we've just received Humdinger 2 - The Revenge which features another 40 top-quality PD games. Amongst the goodies on offer are old favourites such as Cat & Mouse, Zeus, Cliff-hanger, Push, Connect4, Galactic Worm, Trix and Klondike.
There's also a good Rubik's Cube game and a brilliant 3D Breakout variant (3D specs not provided). If all that doesn't scream VFM at you, I don't know what will.

VECTOR OBJECT EDITOR - PD Last month we reviewed the TSB Vector Object Designer for the RSI Demo Maker. This month sees the release of the official RSI Data Becker Vector Object Editor.
Featuring the groups inimitable user-friendliness, the Vector Object Editor creates static and animated vectors of the type used by the DemoMaker. Test the objects before saving them and colour them how you like.
TSB Vector Designer was good but this is even better.
An absolute must for all DemoMaker fans.
17 Bit Disk 1392 ***** RSI DEMOMAKER: FONT EDITOR - PD Here’s yet another utility for the Incredible RSI DemoMaker, this time it’s a font editor which allows you to make your own 8,16 and 32-point fonts for use in text screens and scrollers.
This program has been created by RSI Data Becker, so you can be sure that it'll work perfectly with the DemoMaker. Far more user- friendly than Commodore's FED, it allows the font fanatic to create full-colour personalised letter styles, and it provides the user with a wide variety of editing tools.
It includes a variety of options to align type, create uniformly-sized letters, and generally make slick-looking alphabets.
17 Bit Disk 1390 **** AMNUTS VIDEO VIEWER LICENCEWARE Here's one for all you amateur Steven Spielbergs. It's a great video package that creates scrolling titles using any Amiga font. Attractive effects can be achieved, including a variety of text wipes and colour fades.
Text can be scrolled horizontally or vertically in either high or low resolution, and screen colours can be defined to the user's specifications.
Video Viewer is not restricted to video titling either; it can be used as a high quality text-viewer allowing the user to mix a variety of text styles and sizes within a presentation.
Compared to packages such as Big Scroller, and Video Tiller Professional, Video Viewer is excellent value for money.
Amiganuts 1199 **** This is a very simple example of the rather silly effects which you WORDS 3.0 - LICENCEWARE Regular readers will recall our review a couple of months ago of a neat utility called Words. This handy program has now been commercially released, and it's the ideal companion for word puzzle fanatics and competition buffs everywhere.
It has three operating modes: Match, Anagram and Make, all of which operate upon a textual string input by the user. The Match option provides possible words when some of the letters are missing. For instance, entering SU??TA?CE, returns the word SUBSTANCE. Anagram is self-explanatory: it attempts to find other words which use all of the specified letters. Make is certainly the most time saving option; it displays all words that can be made from the letters specified.
The original Words had a restricted glossary, and it was primarily intended as a preview. This is the first complete version and features a 55,000-words-plus glossary and an option to add more of your own. Because searches can be slow, the glossaries can be installed to memory if preferred.
This is a very likeable program.
It might not be essential, but it's great fun to use.
Amiganuts *** n UTILITIES PD TEXT ENGINE 2.1 - SHAREWARE AMI BASE PROFESSIONAL m|
- LICENCEWARE One of the most commonly used utilities is a
database.
Unfortunately, these are usually quite expensive, and until now the PD ones available have left a lot to be desired.
AmiBase Professional has been loosely-styled on the excellent Superbase Pro interface with its video-style controls.
Unlike AmiBase II, which stored its records in memory, AmiBase III uses the random access technique, transferring records to disk as they're created. Although this slows access, it means that the user is limited only by their disk space.
AmiBase III can be used with a floppy disk, but it really comes into its own when used in conjunction with a hard drive. Apart from its much greater storage capacity, access times are so fast that file storage ceases to be inconvenient.
This flexible and well- written program is ideal for the would-be professional. An ideal introduction to database management, most will find that it's the only database they’ll need.

There are numerous word processors available, but Text Engine stands head and shoulders above most PD otterings. It's not the best-looking and it's certainly not the most comprehensive, but it does have one thing in its favour: it's easy to use!
Text Engine almost feels as if it were written for children. All of its options are easy to access and straight-forward to use. It works well and includes a couple of sophisticated features including the ability to define text via keyboard shortcuts.
There’s not really a lot else to say about this package; it works well, it's cheap, it's easy to use... End of story!
Virus Free PD **** MUSIC BOX - LICENCEWARE If your children want to make music, or you find that Soundtracker-type programs are too complex, Music Box could be the solution.
Instead of representing music using numbers, it uses the conventional system of staves and bars onto which are placed quavers, crotchets, minims etc. Just pick up notes from the bottom of the screen, place them on the staves and - hey! - composition.
• ry.n .01 - .1 .imus] BDDEID OQQQB This system is extremely
simplistic, but it’s likely to give pleasure to they- oung at
heart. It'sJjright and cheery, and the instructions are aimed
at children aged from about eight years upwards. Deja Vu ****
DESKBENCH-PD This unusual and under-rated utility has been
around in one form or another for several months, but it needs
a closer inspection now that a host of accessories are
available.
Deskbench allows the user to define icons which execute scripts or sequences of commands.
Better still, the icons form part of an
- ---- 2383= 0 ...or, incredibly neat and tidy 'desktop'.
¦ ’ This is one of the most useful programs I've encountered in ages. If you’re concerned about the look of your Workbench screens, as well as how they run, give this system a try.
Additional disks of icons and base units are also available from 17 Bit.

MJ ttO* - Aown**) m., .f-ng. tr Tt A hard drive has become an
essential add-on for business and producivity users. Mat
Broomfield puts a couple to the test to see how they perform.
Worth of information, in terms of separate programs it may be able to store the equivalent of forty or more disks.
WHY BOTHER?
A hard drive is the computer equivalent ot tifteen jabs ot anabolic steroids. A typical twenty megabyte drive will hold the equivalent ot over twenty three floppy disks, and a 105 meg unit can hold over 122 disks worth ot data.
In fact, most drives will hold much more than this because, when you load a floppy, each disk has to contain all of the routines and files that the program will use. A lot of software use similar library routines, so you will only need a single copy of each on your hard drive.
Therefore, although in actual bytes a twenty meg drive can store 23 floppies By compiling several disks of information on a single hard-drive, the endless disk-swapping of programs such as Lattice (Aztec) C and Professional Page can be completely avoided.
SPEED KILLS A hard drive runs much faster than its floppier and flimsier counterpart. It can access many different programs in a session, moving from one to the other in a fraction of the loading time.
Hard drives are available in sizes ranging from 20 right up to 300 megabytes, and the abilities of each vary tremendously in terms of speed, reliability and performance.
With this in mind, let's take a look at the Impact Series II from GVP and the System 2000 from Vortex to see what they offer.
INSTALLATION Before either can be used, they must be connected and configured. Neither dr is supplied with a particularly expan manual and consequently they suffer.
Designed exclusively for the Amiga, the Impact slots directly into the expansion port. Before connecting it however, a metal shield must be attached to the computer. This reduces radio interference which the hard drive emits.
Although simple enough once you know what you're doing, connecting the shield incorrectly is likely to kill your Amiga.
The System 2000 is connected to the Amiga via a device called the personality module which is included with the system. This is a small interface which plugs into the expansion port and acts as an ‘interpreter’ between the drive and the Amiga. The actual hard drive is not Amiga specific; it can be connected to any computer for which Vortex manufacture such a module. In one respect, this is very convenient because it means that should you move from an Amiga to a PC, for example, you only have to buy a new personality module to continue using the drive (although the data previously stored
on it will not be accessible).
The down-side to this method of doing things, is that being non-Amiga specific, it's much harder to include slots for addons such as memory boards etc. Another good thing is that both manufacturers pre-format their drives before they leave the factory. This means that you can get on with the business of filling them with data all the quicker.
The final task before use is called partitioning, or sub-dividing the drive.
This process reduces the number of inappropriate files and directories that have to be scanned before selecting the GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS Most people will want a drive which is capable ot auto-booting. This means that when the computer is switched on, the hard drive will automatically execute a startup-sequence and load Workbench if there isn’t a disk present in DFO:, the internal Amiga floppy drive.
Desired program. For example, a drive with three partitions may have games stored in the first with utilities and data saves in the other two. Both drives are already bisected into two partitions at the factory, although many users will prefer to repartition them using the software supplied.
The first partition is recognised as DHO:. Many programs which include a hard disk installation option can only use this so it's definitely the most important partition. I would suggest that it should also be the largest.

Iga.
Oan- aver, the er- tnow ihield a. othe inal- e lich cts a and not I to lufac- this s la to i buy SAY, WHAT? (J ARG0N EXPLAINED) AUTO-BOOT: The ability of a hard drive to automatically take over the Amiga's disk operating system so that the startup-sequence is executed without the need to put a disk into the internal drive.
AUTO-CONFIGURE MEMORY: The A500 is not designed to address more than one megabyte ol memory, although by the use of configuration software, and perhaps some modifications to its circuit board, more memory can be used. Auto-cuntigure memory negates all that messing around and is immediately available without the need for software or hardware modifications.
FORMAT: Prepare a disk to store machine specific data.
INTERFACE: The intermediary connection between one device and another.
LOGICAL DEVICE: A special directory to which data may be sent or from which it may be read. Logical devices differ from ordinary directories in that they can be referenced with generic names such as DFO: C: LIBS: etc which encompass any directory assigned to that device name.
Ing cific, add- i a. t at 3 the PARTITION: A sub-division of a hard drive. Each partition is treated by the Amiga as a separate disk drive.
PERSONALITY MODULE: A module which translates the information transmitted by any computer into the format required by the hard drive.
STARTUP-SEQUENCE: The series ot commands which is executed when a hard drive is turned on, or a DOS disk is inserted into the floppy drive after a reset.
Amigas which operate under Kickstart 1.2 or its predecessors, do not have the ability to handle auto- booting hard drives. However, Vortex have programmed their drive so that it'll auto-boot even on 1.2 machines.
GVP have not demonstrated the same foresight. But for 1.3 owners, the Impact does have an additional advantage - it has an in-built game switch.
Turn this off and the drive won't autoboot - an advantage as not all software will run with an auto-booting system.
You can check which version of Kickstart you have by turning your Amiga on without a disk in the internal drive. Alter a few moments the Kickstart screen will appear (a blue hand holding a disk) and beneath it, the version number of your system.
STORING DATA This is where it all starts happening. No matter how clever or well documented a hard drive is, the most important feature is its ability to store information.
I found that when using a one megabyte Amiga I constantly ran out ot memory, even when using very basic programs.
The Impact doesn't like my ICD four meg memory upgrade at all, and crashes frequently, bringing the computer down with it. It seems to react especially strongly against Scribble!
And Professional Page Draw, particularly when accessing the disk for saves.
The System 2000 seemed rather more stable, but it gave constant and unjustified read write errors, Clicking on cancel, programs resume operations as usual so these 'ghost' errors seem to be a fault with the interface hardware rather than the drive itself. Mind you, in their instruction manual Vortex state that all hard drives contain a number of damaged tracks the second they come off the production line; so perhaps their's suffer more than most? Whatever the answer, I begrudge paying over £500 for a drive that's not 100% perfect when new!
VROOM VROOM In terms of speed, the Impact was substantially faster than the Vortex. The System 2000 was on average six times faster than the Amiga’s internal floppy disk drive, whereas the Impact was a massive 36 times faster. The greatest speed increase was produced when reading or writing large blocks of data in a single chunk. The larger the data block, the greater the speed differential between the Impact, the System 2000 and the Amiga's internal drive.
When reading raw data in blocks 32768 bytes long, the Impact reaches data transfer speeds averaging 451,404 bytes per second. That means that it can load a full 512k of data in only 1.15 seconds! The System 2000 takes just under 11 seconds to read the same amount of data, while the internal drive is still chugging along 30 seconds after that (41.8 seconds per 512k).
LETS MAKE SOME NOISE Both drives include internal cooling fans which whirr constantly when the drives are switched on. The Impact has the loudest fan, and even though it’s only equivalent to a loud refrigerator, it drove me crazy after a while. The System 2000 fan operates at a quiet hum.
The reverse is true of the actual hard drive mechanisms when reading or writing. The Impact is extremely quiet, which reflects the superlative quality of its Quantum mechanism, while the Vortex drive clicks along in a strangely reassuring way.
A QUESTION OF STYLE Physically, both drives are very attractive, and their architecture is suited to different requirements. Whilst the Impact is perfectly styled to match the Amiga, it requires extra desk space alongside the computer. The System 2000, on the other hand, has a very clean, businesslike appearance and is connected via a two-foot cable, which means that you can locate it on a nearby shelf if desk space is tight.
GVP FOR ADDITIVES The Impact also includes a SCSI interface, which can daisy-chain up to six other SCSI peripherals. It also includes GVP's proprietary Minislot which is a special connector designed so that additional GVP products can easily be used with the Amiga.
Up to eight megabytes of expansion memory in the form of SIMMS modules can also be added. Any memory expansion is auto-configuring so there's no need to start soldering bits of wire to the inside of your Amiga. SIMMS are now available for as little as £105 for four megabytes, so the option to add them to the drive is a tremendous bonus.
Each drive offers different advantages: the System 2000 is quiet to use, compatible with ICD's Adram and can be used with otto computers. The Impact is scorchingly 1 fast, looks as if it's part of the Amiga ant provides the user with numerous ex; sion possibilities, the most important ol | which are the extra memory slots.
On the negative side, System 2000 ij incredibly over-priced, offers no exp sion ports except an extra drive port, _ isn't particularly fast and keeps on gen-1 erating phantom read write errors. ¦ Impact requires additional desk space and disagrees violently with ICD's Adram board, begging the question: how many other products is it incomp ble with?
Both drives are expensive by today's] standards; however with the Impact) get a Rolls Royce of a hard drive, with _ the System 2000 you get... a hard drive! I IMPACT

& HAPPY sfliXASS If you’ve ever wished that your joystick had more range, the Freedom Connection could be the answer. Mat Broomfield sizes it up.
No matter how long the cord on your plugged into either joystick port and joystick, there are times when you includes a switch to allow the user to wish that you could discard it com- Now problem solved - forever. Neve1 aga n will you get you' ySflr ": v oystick's lean retrievably tangled up with your mouse’s cord or that ot the monitor's. REACHING OUT The Freedom Connection is an infra-red transmitter that allows the user to operate a joystick up to eighteen feet away from their computer. Consisting of a base unit which acts as a receiver, and a remote unit which forms the transmitter,
the first unit is plugged into the joystick port of the Amiga and placed close to the monitor or TV screen facing towards the user. Any Atari-compatible joystick can be plugged into the transmitter which requires four AAA batteries to operate. The transmitter can be select which one they want to use. It also includes an auto-fire switch.
LIBERATION Playing R-Type 2 presented no problems as I delivered a steady and rapid stream of bullets, whilst deftly avoiding all obstacles. The auto-fire mode, which sends a rapid pulse when the fire button is pressed, did tend to make things rather jerky when I tried to move at the same time, however.
The transmitter includes a belt hook so that it can be suspended from the user's waist, and I found this the most convenient way to use it. The greatest advantage to using a remote control transmitter, rather than a remote control joystick, is that you can use your favourite stick. This is a definite plus; previous remote control joysticks are very rarely to the user's taste. Stylish design, good solid construction and a long range make this unit a sure-fire winner in my book.
• Maximum range of eighteen feet
• Auto-fire interferes with movement
• Lets you use any joystick
• Works surprisingly well The Freedom Connection is available

A trackball can prove an excellent space saver.
Mat Broomfield plays ball with two of the latest.
Ball is reassuringly heavy. The two buttons, which perform the same function as those on a mouse, are located at the top right of the unit and respond positively. However, because the ball is positioned at the lower left of the unit, it's obviously been designed solely with right- handed people in mind. I tried using it left-handed, but it felt very unnatural.
Using my thumb to manipulate the ball, and my index and middle fingers to operate the buttons, I must admit it felt very comfortable. It takes a lot more effort than a mouse to move the pointer around the screen, especially over large distances, but I found the TKB-MT to be very responsive and precise. A standard mouse works at a resolution of approximately 220 dots per inch (DPI) and is capable of registering movement of up to 35cm per second.
The TKB-MT operates at a resolution of 2000 DPI and can register movement up to 50cm per second!
There’s nothing new about track-balls, but Gasteiner’s latest additions look set to turn a few heads. There are two units available: The TKB-MT which costs £24.95, and the the TKB-MT-A which sells for £29.95. LITTLE BROTHER The TKB-MT s a grey unit about the size of two packs of cigarettes stood side-by-side. It has a good solid feel to it, and the two-inch THE MAIN EVENT The TKB-MT-A is very similar to the TKB-MT.
It features an ergonomic design which fits your hand more comfortably, and includes a special switch, which, when pressed with another button, keeps it activated until 'unlocked’. For example, if you're drawing using D-Paini, press the left button to begin drawing, and use the 'lock' button to fix the button mode. The buttons can then be released, but the cursor will behave as though you still had the left button held down
- this is particularly useful for sketching.
I found both units very comfortable to use, although I was irritated by the slow cursor movement. I preferred the cheaper unit as the buttons were located in an easier position for my hand. They’re both well constructed and reasonably priced, and are the ideal solution if you don’t have room for a mouse.
• Good solid construction
• High resolution
• Ideal for Desk-Top Publishing
• Reasonably priced

There are a number of colour printers on the market, and at £999 (excluding VAT) the Paintjet is certainly one of the more expensive - so how does it justify its price?
The first part of the test was purely concerned with ease of output. After hooking the printer up, tests were done of its ability to print from Dpaint, and using the HP Paintjet driver via Workbench, it worked perfectly and was easy to configure.
ALL IS NOT WELL A particularly colourful image was used, and whilst it printed fairly well, the colours were nowhere near as bright as they'd appeared on screen. Hardly worth a grand so far... On printing thirty more screens, ranging from simple images comprised of bright bold colours through to complex scenes using many subtle shades, the results were fairly satisfactory.
As far as shading goes, the colours were blurred and indistinct. The Paintjet prints at 180 dots per inch, which is equivalent to a 32-pin dot matrix. Depite the high resolution, though, it can't cope with blocks of solid colour. Not only is the problem of banding (white strips every row) worse than on 9-pin dot matrix printers, but areas of solid colour look grainy. The system really ought to create a wide range of smoothly-printed colours.
By switching on Floyd-Steinberg shading (from preferences), the printer produced more accurate colours, but the print-outs became too dark.
In text mode, the printer swishes along at a very healthy 180 characters per second, but its resident fonts are of a low quality, and aren't even up to the standard of a 24-pin printer.
Ifiie tnutile Mat Broomfield tests Hewlett Packard’s £1000 colour Paintjet printer and gives his verdict.
LOOKS BORING The Paintjet is a fairly dull-looking printer. It measures about 18 inches wide by 12 deep, and stands four inches high, with the corners rounded to disguise its bland rectangular shape. All the machine’s controls are located to the right of the printer, whilst the cables are tucked neatly away around the back.
Cut sheet or continuous (sprocket feed) paper up to eight inches wide (A4 size) can be used, and as an HP Painjet printer driver is available with Workbench, running the printer is simplicity itself.
I was very surprised at how badly the Paintjet printed colour screens, and the quiet printing doesn't compensate for its high price tag and poor print quality. If you're in the market for a colour printer, I strongly suggest that you consider the Star LC200C or the Citizen Swift 24 with colour kit. Even the dirt-cheap Okimate 20 seems attractive compared to Hewlett Packard's offering.
Any of the above printers will operate with Care Electronics’ £40 Flexidump program, and this will improve screen printing beyond anything the Paintjet is capable of.
The Paintjet may have been exciting when it was first released, but today it just looks rather sad. Save your money.

want to convert great works of art into music? Mark Patterson
trips the light fantastic and investigates... The composition
can be outputted in any key and in a dozen styles. A piece of
music can take on every form from traditional western to Far
Eastern.
Unfortunately, due to the random-soui ing beeps which the program is infinitely good at creating, no matter what mode key you use it still sounds awful. Tunes can also be harmonised in anything from unison to a chord such as major 6th. This is the only feature that produces any effect remotely worth listening to.
The package lets the user experiment with the Amiga's sound chips to produce customised noise. It's also MIDI compatible, so you can use the program with sound banks and keyboards.
It's hard to see who could find this package useful - or even entertaining.
The idea is good, but, unless a picture can be created that integrates with the program, the results nearly always sound like a mass of uncoordinated electronic beeps. Hardcore musicians and diehard hippies may find a few minutes favour with Pixound. I for one will go elsewhere.
Light and sound, in terms of pure physics, are closely related - for instance, they both travel in waves and have varying frequencies. Pixound uses this affinity to convert pictures into music and the program's accompanying manual goes to great lengths to explain the relationship between painted art and music. It actually made me believe that what I thought was'S'joke could actually be quite an interesting program.
On loading the program, I instructed it to convert the Pixound logo into a tune.
At the very least someone should have ensured that this particular action had impressive results, but what came through the monitor sounded like a cat having a fit on the keys of an out-of-tune piano.
On my second attempt with the program, I converted a digitised picture of .
Neil Armstrong walking on the moon to a tune which used the Pixound mode called F Lydian. The tune grew progressively out-of-key, and no matter what picture I used the results were all painfully similar.
Pixound can accept virtually any type of IFF picture file from 16 to 4096 colours. It also has its own built-in paint package, which is crude but contains enough features for you to create very A MODEL CITIZEN Pixound can play back tunes In a variety of modes, which are accessed by transposing scales and chords to different positions. Take a seven-note mode such as C major, which contains the notes C, 0, E, F, G, A, B. Major keys are normally used for happy, bright- sounding tracks. II you want something more moody you can base the scales and chords on the sixth note, A, which moves the piece
Into the Aeolian mode (see below), to produce a darker sound. The list of modes Include: C Major-poppy D Dorian-Blues E Phrygian - Spanish F Lydian - Major with a dominant fourth G Myxolydian - Country and Western A Aeolian-Minor scale, dark sound B Locrlan - Folk basic pictures. If drawing your own pictures seems too much hassle, Pixound has its own graphics generator which produces artwork that matches the random tunes. Using 31 different colour inversions, colour cycling can be used to produce some really freaky sonics.

• Is easy-to-use, although some knowledge of music theory will be

Where you can stick it.
O ? R O • ] I I Viruses, disk swapping, clicking drives, disks which won't back up.
Is there no end tothewhingeingof the Amiga user?
At Power, we want to tell you just where you can stick your disks and worries. In fact we will show you. The slot in this picture belongstoour PC880B, the first intelligent disk drive. Insert a disk.
F Now you can back up at lightning speeds using the inbuilt Blitz Amiga hardware*, with free software, (even if the disk is Atari or PCI and if your computer has a virus the PC880B will stop it being written to the bootblock of any of your drives, though you can still save files as normal.
When you do not want these features, switch them off and the PC880B will sit quietly, without clicking, pretending to be simply an extra drive.
The PC880B, the only drive to introduce Blitz Amiga, the Power anti-click device and to combat viruses, is only available direct Irom Power, priced at just £69-95.
We have noticed how pricey unintelligent drives are. Perhaps, it's your turn to tell people where to stick it.

It's an irony that most computer users, especially programmers, make lousy typists. Maybe it's because the roles are I mutually exclusive - but I think that it's just because we’re far too lazy to learn.
You might not believe it, but even you can type at speeds of 90 words per minute or more. Mike Kale looks at a program to set your fingers-a-blazing.
Touch Typist is a new program from Sector Software. It's aim is to improve the typing skills of all users, from expert to beginner, although it's in the latter role that the program shines brightest.

LOADSA LESSONS The program comprises 402 lessons, which range from simple letter groups right up to shifted and abstract key combinations. The lessons are structured so that the user can begin learning at their own ability level rather than having to conform to a rigid plan.
Once a lesson is in progress, the keys light up to indicate that they’ve been pressed.
If required, a finger positioning diagram can also be activated. This diagram shows two hands and, as you type, the correct finger to use is highlighted in advance.
Each lesson presents a series of letters at the top of the screen. The user’s objective is simple: duplicate the sequence, using the correct fingers, as quickly and accurately as possible WITHOUT looking at the keyboard.
TESTING 1,2,3 When the sequence has been completed, an assessment is given by the computer. If the user's speed and accuracy complies with the targets, he'll be permitted to progress to the next lesson. This method of progression is useful because it throws down a sense of challenge. If a high enough standard is achieved, a personalised certificate may be printed out.
I expected this program to be awful, but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s well-written, extremely user-friendly, nicely presented and stimulating to use. Unfortunately, it doesn't load from Workbench, and doesn't come with a hard drive installation routine; but it runs perfectly when auto-booted from the internal BREAKING THE SPEED BARRIER Touch typing is the ability to type fluently without constantly watching the keyboard to check that the right keys are being pressed.
Once one has the ability to touch type, the physical process of actually pressing the keys becomes almost subconscious, whilst the mind is left tree to concentrate fully on the subject ot the typing.
Drive. Numerous little touches like the certificate only serve to enhance the utility.
Touch Typist conforms to the usual touch-typing conventions, so if you’re learning at school or college you can use it to give you the edge over your class-mates. At only £14 it's great value-for-money, and compared to Intellitype or Mavis Beacon, (its closest rivals), it's a lot more straight-forward and rewarding to use.

is dead! Mat Broomfield lis- to what the new contender to the
sample throne, Audition 4, has to offer.
Wn and As sampler manufacturers offer increasingly better deals, sampling has become more popular.
However, even the best sampler in the world is only as good as the software it's used with. And. Although most are supplied with proprietary software, people in the know have always sung the praises of Audiowaster III.
N les.
SunRize Industries manufacture their own range of professional sampling hardware, and have decided to produce software which will do their equipment justice. Audition 4, their new product, ality to FRIENDLY FILING when n comes to tiling edited samples, there are more save tor- mats than you know what to do with. Samples can be saved as one. Three or live-oetave Instruments lor use in Deluxe Music Construction Set,
MCD. Or as raw data (ideal tor in-program sound routines ,
compressed or even as executable samples. The latter means
that a sample could be saved and would automatically play
Irom disk without any lurther software. In lad, Audition 4
also includes the option lo play samples directly Irom
disk. Better still, it allows the user to sample straight to
disk, so even when used on a 512k Amiga, 880k samples can be
taken, or considerably more it sampling to a hard drive.
A particularly impressive feature Is the Zoom mode. When magnifying an area.
Audition displays the sample as it's modilied.
What-you-see-is-what-you-get. You can smoothly zoom trom normal view to 500% magnification, watching the sample changing every percent ol the way.
Can be used to sample with any unit which plugs into the parallel port (most do), or as editing software it can be used with all Amiga samples.
WOLF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING The main screen contains most of its rivals’ options, although the colour scheme at first seems quite alien.
However, after mere moments with the package, I realised that there was far more to it than first met the eye.
VERY SPECIAL EFFECTS The most noticeable enhancements are in the sample effects department. There are five options under the special menu, which can be used to enhance the tonal quality of a sample. Smooth is used to flatten a wave form by removing unwanted high frequencies whilst Maximize is used to boost volume without distorting the sample. Centralize corrects the DC offset so that, when samples are mixed together, they produce the cleanest result. The remaining options - Lift Bass and Lift Treble - directly increase either the bass or treble tone of a sample, which is great if you
like rich-sounding samples with plenty of oomph, INTUITION The Edit menu otters the most flexible and powerful sample editing features yet seen on the Amiga. Flange, Fade and Echo are all operated in the same way and use sliders to determine how much ADDRESS BOOK Audition 4 costs £49.95 an4 Is anllabla from HB Marketing at Unit 3, Poyts 14, Naartaafe Delia, Colnbrook, Slough, SIS OOX. Tel: 0753 68S000.
A sample is affected. There's also a try-out facility before you make a sample permanent.
This is worth its weight in gold. All of the options are incredibly intuitive, and the excellent 96-page manual is likely to be used for reference purposes only.
I never thought I'd be comfortable with a package other than Audiomaster
III. But after two minutes with Audition 4, I don't think I could
go back to it.
• Jam-packed with useful features
• Works extremely quickly when adding effects
• Samples straight to disk
• Very intuitive to use
• Reasonably priced
• Lots of save modes
• The best.
How rare it is to review an Amiga add-on that costs a mere fraction of its actual worth. How often have we read those amazing reviews of 24-bit graphics cards, Speedy Gonzalez 'go-faster' accelerator boards, broadcast quality genlocks, and thought 'wow, I’ve got to have one of those?’ However, unless you have written a winning pools predictor, or been lucky with one of those scratchcard lotteries, your hard- Address Book earned pocket money Cost £34 99 just won’t stretch fo such a purchase, suppuec umega 0I al| the products available fo enhance the Address:14 Derwent Amjga 0mega project's
(',ose' Sound Enhancer is both Culcheth.Warrington, affordable and amazing.
Cheshire, WA3 5DY One of the major ele- Tel: 0925 763946 ments of the Amiga's success is its sound capabilities. Unlike a graphic equaliser or tone control circuit, though, the Sound Enhancer has been designed to complement the Amiga and help overcome the deficiencies in its frequency response. To explain: if a sample is recorded and reproduced on the Amiga using a low sample rate, a very gritty and slightly distorted sound is evident. In order to reduce this effect to a minium, a filter removes most of the high frequency sounds containing the distortion responsible for this. Ideally, the
filter's cut-off frequency would change in relation to the sampling frequency, resulting in minimal loss of high frequency or ‘top’. Unfortunately, use of such a filter system is reserved for costly professional hardware, leaving most Amiga owners with a fixed cut-off frequency.
The filter slope, but doesn't interfere with the point at which the filter starts to cutoff. This manifests a reduced clarity of high frequency sounds, such as computer music and high quality samples.
Omega Projects have designed a precise equaliser circuit, with a response which is the inverse of the Amiga sound circuits, yielding a vastly improved performance, via the restoration of lost harmonics.
The Enhancer is supplied with a basic four-page manual which explains how to get the most out of the device.
The device itself is housed within a small, cream-coloured box. On the front of the unit is a button to either switch in or bypass the enhancer (excellent for testing the effect), a rotary knob for adjusting the sound enhancement, and Since the A1000 arrived, however, all Amigas have software-controlled circuitry to turn on and off the audio filter.
This function reduces the steepness of PRAISE INDEED Music packages, such as Sonlx, the MED series, and sampling applications and demos all sounded excellent when used with the Sound Enhancer. In fact, it would be impossible to go back to living without the device. Basically, at long last, the user is able to hear instruments and sounds as they were originally Intended to be heard. Not only Is there a profoundly enhanced stereo image, but the bass sounds are both deep and clean and the top' is crystal clear.
There is little I can say about the negative aspects of the Sound Enhancer, but, at the risk of sounding pedantic, I would have preferred slightly longer leads - especially the audio leads to the hi-fi, even though my set-up is reasonably compact. With no real competitors, the Sound Enhancer is impossible to compare in terms ol specifications or results. But at less than £35.1 can thoroughly recommend this product to anyone wishing to bring the quality ol their Amiga's sound up to and beyond that of CD, DAT or FM stereo broadcasts.
Does a decent sound package have to be expensive?
Not necessarily, as Graham Cohen discovers... an LED for confirmation of power to the unit. All connecting leads are at the back of the unit and comprise two audio leads to connect to the monitor’s or Hi-Fi’s Audio In. There are also two audio sockets for Audio In ports from the computer, and a power lead attached to a serial plug which is connected to the Amiga's serial socket. The plug is a true passthrough type, so you can still connect a printer or modem for 100% compatibility.
The power needed for the device is a few milli-amps and won't overload even the measliest of Amiga power supplies.
In use, the Enhancer is well-behaved, with no undesirable overheating or distortion. Having had what I perceived to be a perfect set up with the Amiga linked to a quality Hi-Fi, my immediate reaction to the enhanced sound was one of delight and shock at the same time. I was left wondering how I had put up with such inferior capabilities, and the fact that I couldn’t live without Sound Enhancer now is quite easily the best recommendation I can give.

“NOW HAS THE 1991 92 FOOTBALL LEAGUE NFL PLAYER DATA' THE MIDMIGHT OIL DIVISION WO “(The Midnight Oil) treat occer in the sophisticated way Americans treat their national games.”
- The Guardian THE GAME. Everyone ho ha own ideas on what makes a
soccer team Tick'. Here is the opportunity to put into practice
your own ideas.
Operating from the English 1st Division you must build a squad to challenge for the league title, the FA and League Cups and the 3 European trophies. And as players age. Rebuild the team while holding off relegation.
SODADSTRANSFER MARKET. In a 3 squad system (1st team squad reserve squad and youth squad), use the continuous intake of youth players and training program to create a squad whose skills reflect your ideas. Supplement these slol's with carefully selected transfer market acquisitions. As they age. Veterans fade and youngsters develop,keepa sharp eye on the changing skills of your team.
Stm-iA All players have a balance of 5 skills (no “skin levels") which you must discover by experimenting with your team. Even more important will be your Judgement about the effect of the particular team balance or skill combination on the outcome of a match, and subsequently a season of football. Suitable tnaning can develop'enhancc skills or sustain the stamina of ageingAnJured players.
MATCB'STATS. Your judgement wifl be put to the test in this unique 4 minute mateb'stats simulation against accurately simulated opposition.
This is the measure of your team and your most reliable source of information. There are displays ot match flow, two teams, playei-with-the-ball, injuries, discipline, substitutions, ui-match tactics, goalscorers, possession breakdown and performance assessment.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT THIS GAME?
Sophisticated ‘AT techniques replace "skin levels". Judgement replaces mental arithmetic. Intelligence replaces hick. Division One 92 is a simulation of the world of the soccer manager. Its fascination comes from its closeness to the real thing, its addictive quality is that of soccer Use!'.
"When it comes to the 4th down Headcoach has it”. “Head Coach", “TV Sports Football” head to head.
(Pop Comp.)
THE GAME. HeadCoach is the complete American Football simulation. You take charge of the latest recruit to the NFL, and through skilful design of gameplans and the use of the college draft, build up a 45 man squad to keep your fans happy and win the Superbowl. Unlimited seasons and ageing players produce a realistic game of fluctuating fortunes.
THE MATCH. The match is a game in itself taking about 40 minutes to complete. With 26 offensive plays and 21 defensive plays, there is ample scope to match your game - plan to the skills of your squad, and exploit the weaknesses of the opposition. It’s here where the strengths and weaknesses of your players are highlighted.
TRAINING CAMP. An opportunity to assess your players before they take the field. The appropriate coach will give you his view of the cuneni form of any of the players and how they are performing in training. A 40 yard timed run will reveal their sharpness. Wide receivers, running backs, linebackers, comerbacks and safeties need to shine here.
COLLEGE DRAFT. During the 16 match season, phis whatever playoff matches you achieve, you will find yourself praying for a second classy running back or wide receiver, or need to beef up your offensive line (too many sacks). The college draft should be used to find those stars of the future and make sure they're playing for you.
STATISTICS. The statistics centre will encapsulate your team's and your players' season. Total yards, rushing yards, passing yards, kick-off returns, punt returns (and averages for all these), interceptions, sacks... all these are kept for each match, the whole season, for the team and for each player. American Football is a game of stats and we retain that.

Mat Broomfield explains why.
DESKTOP DIY With the release of programs like Kind Words, Wordsworth and Pen Pal, desktop publishing has become cheap enough for most people to have a go at producing their own illustrated documents. The trouble is, where do you get the illustrations? It's fine if you can draw better than Da Vinci and faster than Rolf Harris but, for the rest of us, clip-art is the answer.
There are absolutely dozens of clipart disks available, most of which are public domain. These range from full- colour images of things such as cars, animals, etc, to monochrome (black and white) pictures of cartoon characters and other humourous items.
The potential uses for clip-an are endless, but with the introduction of several sets of thematic work, their educational value is quite obvious. For example, Think Limited produce a two- disk set called Human Biology which contain detailed colour diagrams easily as good as those found in text books.
By using these images in their work, not only do students create neater, more professional looking essays and reports, they have more fun doing it tool Mind you, the artistic value of clip-art mustn’t be overlooked either Collections such as RGB Studios' Real Things, and Artworks' Thematic clip-art are things of beauty to be enjoyed in their own right. They're ideal for importing into your own pictures, and will save you hours of work.
Of course, the traditional use for clip art is as ready-made illustration within a desk-top publishing environment.
Seventeen Bit's collection of disks is ideal for use with fantasy topics, whereas Softwood's Classic Clip-art is better suited to more traditional subject matters such as finance and sports.
Provided you have the imagination and a printer, you can use clip art to transform otherwise lifeless documents into visually exciting statements.
CLASSIFIED CLIPS There are two basic kinds of clip-art; bitmapped and structured. Within these two categories there are three further sub-divisions: full-colour, grey scale and monochrome (black and white).
Full colour clip-art is ideal for importing into computer screens which are not going to be printed. As most people don’t own a colour printer, colour art has to be very carefully coloured if it's going to be printed on a monochrome printer.
Grey scale clip-art is usually created using eight or sixteen shades of grey.
When printed on nine pin printers it tends to look rather distorted and blurred, but on a 24 pin, bubble jet or laser printer grey scale can add a lot of depth and texture to images.
MrtrudU MnUd w ilruiura Ssj Illll w MbHY Clip art comes in all shapes and sizes and can greatly enhance the printed page. It’s not quite that simple, though, as an eye for good design is also essential to obtain the best results.
Monochrome clips will usually print well on any printer. Often pixel dithering is used to simulate areas of light and dark, although line art is the most ideally suited for use in monochrome because it doesn't require any shading in the first place.
NOT THAT BITMAP Bitmapped clip-art is basically standard ILBM (IFF) pixel images saved in a brush format. Most art packages are capable of storing images in this way.
Bitmapped clip-art is the most readily available, and has the advantage that it's easy to produce if you have either a LAND THE F-19 STEALTH FIGHTER FREE WITH THE N°l GAMES MONITOR.

When bitmapped clip-art is sent to a printer, it prints each individual pixel, and images can therefore appear to be quite granular and blocky looking, especially if the image has been enlarged. If the image is to be enlarged when printed, distortion can often occur because the pixels can only be precisely magnified by whole values - times two, or times six for instance. An enlargement factor of 2.4 or 7.63 can’t be accurately created using bitmaps.
STRUCTURE THIS Structured (or scaleable) clip-art is formed in a totally different way to bitmaps. Rather than representing a shape as a series of pixels, a mathematical definition of the shape is used. An ellipse, for instance, would be defined as a centre point, a radius, a degree of cun e and an angle of tilt.
Ical definition of the For very tiny objects, structured definitions are more costly in terms of memory. When they’re printed, the computer translates the shape definition in memory into the highest resolution printer image possible.
The greatest advantage of structured clip-art is the fact that it can be enlarged or reduced by any factor within the size limits of the destination printer with no decrease in quality whatsoever.
CLIP ART ROUND UP 17 BIT CLIP-ART - DISKS 954-959 A selection of grey-scale bitmapped clipart that includes many of the classic Apple Macintosh images, and a number of Dungeons and Dragons images ranging from mouldering mummies to fire breathing dragons. There are also numerous images under the heading 'Whimsy'. As the name suggests, these are cutesy kiddie's story book images: fluffy rabbits, teddy bears etc. There are also some very decorative alphabets.
Only useful for higher resolution printers or on-screen art. *** PUBLIC DOMINATOR - cup-it i.i-4.4 A sixteen disk collection absolutely brimming with sharp line and silhouette art.
Each image is crisp and visually pleasing. Covering a complete spectrum of topics ranging from people and animals, through to festivities, fruit and transport. Most of these bitmapped images are ideal candidates for conversion to the structured format, and can be quickly transferred using Pro-Draw's Trace utility. **** PUBLIC DOMAIN ANDtrHUGWSOMiir 1-7 Created by a dedicated clipart fanatic, this collection of bitmapped images includes both classic and contemporary images, many of which are unique to the collection.
Representing a variety of styles ranging from line art to scanned photographs, most of the images are in monochrome although there are a few colour clips as well. *** STRICTLY PD VIZ CLIP-ART Lovingly created, hundreds of bitmapped monochrome clips illustrating Viz characters from the present day right back to the comic’s genesis. For the Viz connoisseur this collection will doubtless provide hours of nostalgic pleasure, but the sharply drawn characters are also useful for any situation where comic art is required.
With only minimal effort, they can be coloured in and incorporated into your own screens. So, if you fancy plastering Billy the Fish all over your stationary or want to print your own Fat Slags posters, now's your chance.
* ** SOFTWOOD - SOFTCLIPS VOLUME 1: CLASSIC CLIP-ART This
collection has everything: from lovers to sportsmen, babies to
geisha girls, teachers to tourists. Created with the same
precision as volume one, a strong sense of humour is evident in
many of the cartoon characters included. Unfortunately, this
set doesn't seem to justify its price tag. **** GOLD DISK -
e-clips This is one of the few collections of structured
clip-art available. It contains an extremely diverse range not
only of images, but also of image quality.
Although everything is very well drawn, some of the images are over- simplistic for my tastes.
Much as I like this collection, it contains more useless images than any other set, and is also very pricey. ** As far as clip-art goes, it doesn't come more classic than this four disk set which has been created by professional artists. Animals, sports, borders, occupations and dozens of other themes are immaculately realised both in line art form and as images which are so good that they appear photographic. They're far from cheap, but bitmapped clip-art really doesn't come any better than this.
* **** SOFTWOOD SOFTCLIPS VOLUME 2: PEOPLE CLIP ART The second
four disk set of bitmapped clip-art from Softwood focuses
entirely on people in their numerous guises. The characters are
drawn in a combination of cartoon, line art and photo styles.
RGB STUDIOS REAL THINGS: BIRDS, HUMANS, HORSES, ON SAFARI, UNDERSEA WORLD These full colour collections are unique in that they're the only ones to contain animated clips as well as static images.
With incredible attention to detail, and a strong desire to recreate the ‘feel’ of the subject matter, RGB Studios' wild-life artists have created a beautiful set which whilst of little use in monochrome desk-top publishing, is an essential purchase for aspiring artists and colour printer owners. ***** THINK LIMITED HUMAN BIOLOGY, TRANSPORT, AT HOME These disks contain a selection of full colour bitmapped clips which are accurate enough to use in professional, medical or scientific texts. Carefully designed so that they print out well on a black and white printer, they represent the first
of an exciting new trend towards truly professional thematic clip art. The inclusion of a manual with handy hints on using the art is an additional bonus which will be appreciated by beginners and experts alike. ***** ARTWORKS THEMATIC CLIPART: TREES, PETS, CASTLES COTTAGES A CHURCHES Created entirely by husband and wife team Dace and Philip Burman, each of these three thematic clip-art disks contain between 120 and 240 monochrome bitmapped images illustrating a single theme. Each of the images is so perfectly drawn that it's hard to pick a favourite, although the Trees disk contains an
especially attractive selection. This series represents superb value for money. ***** PUBLIC DOMAIN CLIP-ART PORTFOLIO To acquire this final public domain selection, you'd have to fork out for a massive seventeen disksl Designed as THE clip-art collection, Geoff Hughes has scoured PD clip-art collections nationwide to compile this mammoth set and has selected the best designs available. He’s also designed a new set of titling conventions to enable the user to quickly identify all potentially suitable images for any given criteria. For example, an exclamation mark after a clip’s
file name means the image is humourous. All types of bitmapped clip-art are represented making this the ideal way to quickly acquire a worth-while library of art. The quality here should satisfy both the amateur and the professional. ***** ADDRESS BOOK Gold Disk & Softwood - HB Marketing Limited, Unit 3, Poyle 14, Newlands Drive, Colnbrook, Slough, SL3 ODX.

CONCLUSION For sheer quality of the printed image, the structured format of E-clips gets my vote of approval, but as far as value for money, diversity of subject matter and attractiveness goes, Public Domini Clip-lt series is definitely tops. For when creating computer art, the Real Things series and the Thematic clip-art are very inspirational and only a fool could fail to come up with something 1 beautiful using them.
1 WHY PAY?
With so much su public domain cli available you might be wondering why you should bother to buy any commercial stuff, especially when some of it costs £50 a set or more.
In the case of structured clip-art, the answer’s easy, there isn't actually any ii the public domain.
With bitmapped clip-art it's perhaps not so easy to justify the expense. True, much of the commercial stuff is created by professional artists and is perhaps a touch more stylish than the PD equivi- lents, but the most important reason lor buying, in my opinion, is the fact that you get a manual with the commercial stuff I These manuals usually show you every single image in the set, and often contain advice on how best to use the art. A manual might not sound very special, but it certainly saves a lot of time when you're trying to find particular types of image.

The Extras disk is basically a host of useful utilities, ranging Irom the Calculator of
the original system to batchprinting and text editing facilities. In addition, the usual fonts on the Extras disk are backed up by a new series on the Fonts disk, and a installation program called Fountain. This Is a handy little package and its Inclusion makes the Amiga a more attractive buy tor the novice DTPer.

use the expansion board located beneath the machine. This Is
because the actuel connector has been altered slightly and,
unless the changed pins are ignored by your device, the
chances are your device won't work. Once again, though, new

DENTAL CLAIMS V2.2 ELF Anyone who possess software that won't
run on the new system will be pleased to know that most
popular titles will be updated to work on the new Plus.
However, beware of buying very old titles, as these aren't as
companies aren't likely to deem them worth updating.
Also, any re-releases and budget games will be tested and altered to work on the new machine, so those older games may be accessible after all. ..

Buyers guide £3127.. Going shopping? This is the only place you need to look if you're thinking of getting a new game or gadget for your Amiga! Every item is described in detail and rated out of five. Don't leave home or pick up the phone without it... Dalel Electronics 0782 744707 £59.95 £69.95 (A500 A1500) Programming the Amiga can sometimes be very frustrating when your code causes a crash tor no apparent reason.
The task becomes a little easier with the help ot packages such as Devpac 2 or Argasm but your problems don't stop there. With Action Replay II you can now examine your code whilst it is running to see what is happening. Even if your machine has crashed, the press of a button makes it all come rushing back for further examination. You can also load almost any game and examine other programmer's code, look through memory, and save graphic images, play and save Soundtracker modules and samples, even put cheat modes in games and, to top it all, you never need to load this wonder widget.
You just plug Action Replay into the side of your machine and forget about it.
This is one piece of kit for the Amiga that's almost an essential purchase. Warning!
Action Replay II only works with machines with less than four megabytes of memory.
* **** AMIGA GENITIZER Datel Electronics 0782 744707 £129.99
Using art packages like Deluxe Paint IV or Photon Paint can be
a bit tricky for some people using the mouse. Now these unhappy
Amiga artists can stop pulling their hair out because the
Genitizer is a graphics tablet that's as simple to operate as
drawing with a pen. Images can easily be copied from paper by
tracing around the image. Comes complete with a Deluxe Paint
template for easy use.
* *** AMIGA REPAIRS FUG 0733 391234 £57.45 If you've had a fault
with your Amiga in the past you will know how much it costs to
repair. FMG is the National Repair Centre for Commodore so the
work that’s carried out on your machine is the best you will
find.
* ** AMOS Europress Sottware 0625-859444 £49.99 There are a fair
number of BASIC programming languages on the Amiga but
nothing to top AMOS. The icon-driven interface and concise
screen display make it a pleasure to work with.
AMOS incorporates an extensive library of over 500 commands, including complete control of the hardware registers which enable you to perform pixel-perfect scrolling both vertically and horizontally, software (blitter) and hardware sprites, copperlists for rainbow colour bars like in the Turrican II (Rainbow Arts) and James Pond (Millennium) games, and a Soundtracker Noisetracker player. Some useful utilities are included with AMOS for editing sprites, pictures and animations. AMOS runs at such a fast speed that you can produce quality homegrown games.
* *** AMOS 3D Europress Sottware 0625 859444 £34.99 Almost every
Amiga owner has seen solid-3D Vector images at some time,
either in a Red Sector demo or games like Thunderhawk Core
Design) and Jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker (Virgin Games). The
programmers of these games had to perform thousands of maths
calculations to produce these complex graphics, and, for the
average person, balancing the weekly budget is about the
limit. AMOS 3D is here to help. With the maths already done for
you, all you are required to do is put the lines in the correct
places and devise a game around them.
This is easy because the software is completely icon driven and supplied with a comprehensive manual.
AMOS 3D was written by Voodoo Sottware, the folks behind a 3D game for Electronic Zoo called Xiphos.
* ** AMOS COMPILER Europress Software 0625 859444 £29.99 For
those who are not sure what a compiler does, it’s very simple.
Honest! After writing your blockbuster on AMOS you now have the
option of converting it into stand-alone machine code using the
compiler. Once you have compiled your game it now reacts just
like a normal game and you can start it from the CLI without
loading AMOS. The only problem is it may run too quick to play,
so you will have to incorporate some routines to slow your game
down. Definitely worth a look!
* *** ARGASM Argonaut Sottware 081 906 4253 £49.95 This package
is almost the same as Devpac but incorpo- | rates a few
alterations such as a much up-rated assembler and some new
editor functions. Sadly, this isn't the most friendly package
on the market. For instance, the assembler is very fussy about
what it will accept.
* *** ATONCE-AMIGA SDL 081 309 5000 £199 Why people should need
to turn the Amiga into a boring PC is beyond us! For a few
years Vortex has been work- j ing on the Atonce-Amiga making it
better all the time.
The system now incorporates an Intel 80286 processor, CGA EGA and VGA graphics compatibility and reads MS- | DOS disks using the standard drive. The card is very easy to install: lift the A500 cover and replace the 68000 CPU with the Atonce- Amiga card. The latest ] version of DOS, V.5, will cost in the region of £55.
* ** pipe! PRO Precision Sottware 081 330 7166 £225 This has been
the best MIDI package around for the last few years. The
functions in the new Pro version have been upgraded. With an
optional internal sound program, you can use the standard
Paula sound chip of your machine.
* *** BOOKS Abacus 021 706 1188 Evarious The manual that comes
with your Amiga is pretty difficult to understand and doesn't
go into too much depth. Abacus publishes a complete range of
books for beginners and advanced programmers alike. Each book
is well pre- sented and includes good descriptions, working
examples and an optional disk including all the program list
ings. Ever-expanding range includes Amiga for Beginners, Amiga
Basic, Amiga DOS, Making Music and Amiga Machine Language.
Check your local book store and ask for the complete list.
* **** CD-ROM DRIVE Commodore 0628 770088 £TBA New kid on the
block, CDTV, has been available for some months now. As more
and more software emerges, owners of the standard Amiga can
only sit back and watch. Commodore is planning to shortly
release an external CD-ROM drive allowing anybody with a one
megabyte machine to play CDTV software. No price fixed as yet,
but expect to pay around £350.
* ** COLOURPIC JCL Business Systems 0892 75791 £399 For a
professional real-time full colour digitiser the ColourPic is
probably the best and also the most inexpensive. Blessed with
the ability to save files in all graphics modes, making it the
perfect tool for any kind of work. For an extra £100, JCL will
include a quality genlock to merge graphics on real-time video.
I
* *** DELUXE PAINT IV Electronic Arts 0753 549442 £89.99 Since
the beginning of time there has always been Deluxe Paint. Only
just out on the streets, Deluxe Paint IV is alive with fresh
icons.
GULF WAR!?!
The military conflict in Kuwait has given virus writers inspiration to create a new style of virus called Saddam Hussein. The 'Saddam' normally hides inside Disk-Validator and infects all files whilst corrupting the disks structure. However, if you have not attempted to remove the file, it is combatable and help can easily be found in the form of Virus Checker V5.32. (The disk is available from all good PD stockists) faster screen update and a host of new functions including transparency which enables you to draw over a previous picture and still see the old image, Anti-aliasing to remove
all those jagged edges, metamorph from one object to another and colour mixing to find that perfect shade. If that wasn't enough, you now have access to the famous, and very gorgeous, HAM graphics mode with all 4096 colours to use at the same time. With all these functions and the ability to switch between screen modes, this becomes the best art package on the market today. So, if you’re just starting out or already an experienced graphic artist Deluxe Paint IV should be on your Xmas shopping list.
Electronic Arts is offering upgrades for users of previous versions of the software, ranging in price from £65 to £45.
* **** DEVPAC 2 Hlsott 0525 718181 £39.95 Even though there is so
much programming done on the Amiga, there are only a couple of
professional assemblers available. With a text editor that out
performs a lot of word processors, Devpac is used by commer
cial software developers.
There are some really dreamy features incorporated into this top title, including a fast macro assembler and built-in debugger. This should be your first choice if you are just starting out.
* ** DIGI-VIEW GOLD NewTek 0753 686000 £149.95 Can digitise
images in any of the Amiga screen modes, even hi-res with an
amazing 4096-colours. An advanced dithering routine gives the
illusion of 100,000 colours on the screen. Saves images as
standard IFF for use in Deluxe Paint. Very easy to use, just
plug it in and away you go.
* **** m?AL DISK DRIVE Evesham Micros 0386 765500 £51.99 Evesham
Micros has the perfect device for Amiga owners who don’t
require any special frills from their drives. Just plug it in
and away you go.
* *** FUN SCHOOL 3 Europress Software (0625 859444) £24.99
Teaches young children the principles of letters, numbers,
colours, shapes and action words through the use of six
learning programs which automatically adjust to your child's
abilities. Fun School 4 has just been released.
* *** HAM-E Checkmate Digital 071 923 0658 £299 £399 Even though
the Amiga has some the best graphics available on a home
computer, it is still very limited. HAM-E is a 24-bit graphics
adaptor that lets you display 256- or 512- colours at once on a
resolution of 384x560 on the standard version or 768x560 in
hi-res. Both versions are supplied with all the required
connections and two professional software packages.
* ** JOYSTICK TESTER Konix £14.95 Has your joystick made that
last great move? Is the fire button feeling a bit flat? Konix
has produced what must be the most remarkable product featured
in these pages.
Although the Joystick Tester is aimed primarily for computer shops, it works perfectly and saves time.
* ** KCS POWER PC Bltcon Devices 091 490 1919 £234.99 Much the
same as the Atonce-Amiga except the KCS card plugs in under the
machine through the trap door. When not in PC mode you can use
the card as a memory expansion. The KCS only supports
Monochrome, Hercules and CGA. EGA and VGA will follow. Supplied
with MS-DOS 4.01 and GW Basic.
* ** MASTER SOUND MlcrodeaI 0726 68020 £39.95 If, after looking
through all the Public Domain lists of Soundtracker music and
dissecting hundreds of tunes you still cannot find that per
fect sound, the only thing to do is sample them yourself!
Using Master Sound there are no limits to the achievable sounds. That racing game you're designing could sure benefit from some meaty effects, so why not stand next to a Porsche 959 and get the perfect engine sound? Only the foolhardy will attempt to capture real thunder, though. Simply record these sounds onto tape, play them into your Amiga via Master Sound, then load Noise Tracker or Quartet and place the new sound into your piece of music or game. Hey presto, your software is enlivened with realistic audio just like the professionals. Master Sound is supplied with a cartridge for
sampling and editor software to modify, merge and save your samples.
* ** MIDI INTERFACE Evesham Micros 0386 765500 £19.95 For a
professional music package you will have to purchase a MIDI
interface and music keyboard. If you have never been involved
in creating music it’s worth buying cheap, you never know,
after a couple of days you might hate it!
* ** MUSIC X Software Business 0480 496497 • £50 £99
(Junior Full) Professional MIDI software almost the same as
Bars and Pipes but not as friendly.
Icon-driven with up to 250- track recorder. Hasn't the ability to use the standard sound chip. Music X Junioraiso available with a cut-down version with fewer features.
* ** buyers guide NOISE TRACKER Any PD Library Around £2 Your
Amiga is well suited to playing sampled noises, the problem is
to combine and string the samples together to make music. With
the aid of Noise Tracker you can load up to 32 samples into
memory and simply play them using keys on the Amiga. You're
even able to put a few bars together, just click on an icon and
the machine will remember which notes you have played.
When you've finished simply play them back with just a click ot the mouse button. If it sounds a bit rough at first you can always do fine alterations. After completing a few bars you can rearrange them if necessary and listen to your final composition.
Irk NOWA HARD Power Computing 02S3 734218 £399 An American company named ICD has started shipping mini-drives and control cards for the Amiga A500.
The difference between these, and the standard hard drives, is that they fit inside the A500 case, thus allowing other peripherals to use the edge connector. There are two versions of the Novia drive: 20Mb and 30Mb.
*?
POWER8 DRIVE Power Computing 0234 843388 £65 Now that almost every title available on the Amiga requires an average of three disks, it's about time you upgraded your system by adding two or more drives.
The Power Drive is packed with some novel hardware features, including a copier that enables you to back-up unprotected disks at amazing speeds, Anti-Click to stop that annoying clicking sound when there is no disk inserted into the drive, and a Virus Blocker which prevents viruses infecting your disks. It also has a thru port allowing more drives to be connected.
Kkkkk THE ART OF NOISE Anybody can produce a chart-topping sampled dance track these days, and Amiga users have a head start! All you'll need is a sampler cartridge (for around £50) and a fantastically free PD program called Noise Tracker. If you've got a MIDI-compatible music keyboard, you could control the beast from the comfort of your computer via some special software like Music X (two versions available for £50 and £100).
PEN PAL Gordon Harwood Computers 0773 836781 £79.95 Much the same as Wordworth really. Pen Pal has a 100,000 word dictionary, spell-checker and can input graphics into files.

Installing the upgrade invalidates the warranty ot your machine.
Kkk REAL 3D Alternative Image 0533 440041 £299 One of the more advanced graphics techniques, 3D rendering, is now becoming a standard feature on the Amiga. With the introduction of accelerator boards and 24- bit graphics adaptors, the concept of photo-realistic imagery is here. Real 3D consists ot three main work screens. The first draws your objects using vector graphics, the second handles slight alterations to view and rotation, and the last sets the rendering style, speed, wire frame, colours, graphics mode and animation steps.

* *** excellent
* ** good ** fair * dodgy ALIEN BREED buyersguide Welcome to the
pleasure dome!
Sit back, relax and read through the definitive guide to the greatest and latest games available today... Team 17 E24.99 Shoot'am-up Similar in play style to Gauntlet but enhanced by exceptional audio video delivery. Inspired by the imaginative Ridley Scott movie. Requires one megabyte ot memory.
* *** AMNIOS Psygnosls £25.99 Shoot'em- up Playable eight-way
scrolling shooter utilising ideas pioneered by classic arcade
games like Asteroids and Detender. Weird and wonderful
backdrops and sprites.
* ** SIBSH- Psygnosls £25.99 Arcade Simulation Chance to drive or
fly six different types of vehicle In a futuristic fusion of
simulation, strategy and shoot'em-up.
Full marks go to Psygnogis for this first foray into the" genre. Scores over the cult classic Carrier Command from Realtime Games Rainbird.
* *?* BARBARIAN II Psygnosls £25.99 Arcade Adventure Hegor the
Horrible is back in a hacker slasher which, unfortunately,
doesn't live up to the Shadow of the Beast style of
presentation.
* * BATTLE CHESS Interplay Electronic Arts £24.99 Strategy Nobody
can do anything special with chess, right? Battle Chess is a
very amusing adaptation of the ancient board-game with over
four megabytes of 3D animations, stereo digitised sound effects
and ten levels of play. The presentation is so good, you'll
find yourself sacrificing a knight just to see the rook
transform into a rock monster and crush him to bits. Modem
capability for long distance play. Sequel is nowhere near as
good.
* ** COMMAND Ocean £24.99 Arcade Simulation Blend of sci-fi shoot
em-up and strategy from Realtime Games of Cartier Command fame.
Advanced 3D graphics and a plethora of missions.
* ** BLUES BROTHERS Titus £25.99 Platform Fans ot the cult '70s
film will really get a kick out of this game. Sparkling sprite
animation of the two main characters come complete with a
crazy backdrop full of traps and unexpected bonuses.
* *** CADAVER Imageworks £24.99 Arcade Adventure Pays homage to
the outstanding isometric-3D games produced by Ultimate in
the Golden Age of Arcade Adventures. The Bitmap Brothers pack
the five levels with quality puzzles and graphics. If only
they'd added a bit more action, too.
CAPTIVE Mlndscape £24.99 Role Playing Game Veteran programmer Tony Crowther's 'Dungeon Master In space' has an almost infinite number of levels and a sometimes bewildering array of collectible gadgetry.
* *** OF Electronic Arts £24.99 Arcade Strategy The creative
force behind the legendary Defender of the Crown turns his
attention to the Roman Empire.
Command legionnaires on the battlefield, construct a fleet of boats, catch a gladiator show, and try to seduce Cleopatra. Carry on, gamers!
Kkk CHACON OF Mlrrorsott £25.99 Arcade Strategy Catch the laughable Captain Pugwash animation in Level 9's answer to those Cinemaware ‘Interactive Movies’ like Defender of the Crown and it Came from the Desert. Somewhere along the line that whole affair falls flat... about 23 seconds after inserting the disk, in fact.
* CHUCK ROCK Core Design £24.99 Platform Prehistoric lager lout
travels through five levels made of jungles, caves, underwater
passages and ice chambers before a finale in the dinosaur's
graveyard. Brilliant animation of some crazy creatures. A bit
too easy to complete. Ungabunga!
* *** CORPORATION Core Design £24.99 Role Playing Game
Science-fiction scenario throws players in a sprawling
corporate building overrun by particularly nasty security
guards. Have you got what it takes to be a cyberpunk commando
and reach the genetic laboratory in time? Add-on mission disk
ensures longterm interest is cranked up.
* ** FOR1 ? CORPSE Delphlne US Gold £25.99 Adventure Gripping
stuff from the Parisian software company.
Agatha Christie style murder mystery using the Cinematique system. Full of French flair, especially the black and white flashback' sequences.
* *** DEUTEROS Activision £25.99 Strategy Space opera about as
interesting as playing with a number-crunching spreadsheet.
Still, some people out there will get a kick out ol this
follow-up to Millennium 2.2... ** BSSSS?"
FTL Mlrrorsoft £29.99 Role Playing Game One of the most popular computer games of all time.
It’s your party of adventurers and you’ll fight monsters if you want to. Excellent blend of playabillity, lastability and atmosphere. Downside?
Looks a little dated in comparison to more modern games like Eye of the Beholder (SSI US Gold) and Captive (Mindscape). Chaos Strikes Back (FTL Mirrorsoft) also uses the Dungeon Master game engine.
Requires one megabyte of memory.
* *** SSI US Gold £29.99 Role Playing Game A Dungeon Master clone
that is superior to the original.
Takes the idea a stage further by incorporating the feel of AD&D role-playing with improved characters and story.
* **** tunr1 Microprose £34.99 Simulation Another in the
long-line of quality flight-sims from Microprose. Fly hundreds
of missions in six warzones around the world, including the
Persian Gulf, Vietnam and Central Europe.
Probably the best ever Amiga flight-sim... until the next one takes off!
* **** RETALIATOR Ocean £24.99 • Simulation More an arcade game
than a straight flight simulation, F-29 is brimming over with
fast solid-3D graphics and fair number of 'bugs'. Contains
dozens of different tactical missions with intense aerial
combat and ground battles.
Runcorn-based developer Digital Image Design is cur- rently working on Robocop 3 and Epic, Ocean's answer to the award-winning Wing Commander.
* *** FIRST SAMURAI imageworks £24.99 Arcade People behind such
classics as Cybernoid and Last Ninja have produced a very
playable romp. Plenty of beat'em-up action and hori
zontally-scrolling landscape to explore. Beautiful sprites and
backdrops coupled with unusual orchestral sound effects. A cut
above the rest.
* **** FLAMES OF FREEDOM Microprose £34.99 Arcade Strategy Even
after all these years, Lords ot Midnight programmer Mike
Singleton can still cut it. Midwinter 11 is a technically
awesome 3D adventure with 22 different forms of transport, over
1,000 intelligent characters, dozens of useable weapons and
the equivalent of 1,000,000 square miles of terrain to explore.
The nearest a computer game has ever come to a James Bond
movie.
* **** mmsr ™ Spectrum Hoiobyte Mirrorsott £34.99 Simulation
Superior ‘game-of-the-novel’ with everything you could expect
from this style of software. Based around the exploits of
American carrier aircraft jocks during the Vietnam war.
* *** "¦ • GODS Renegade Mindscape £24.95 Platform Another corker
of a game from the prolific Bitmap Brothers. Highly impressive
graphics complemented by a wide range of multi-layered sound
effects and samples.
Utilises a novel system which makes the computer-con- trolled opponents respond intelligently to the actions of the player.
* ?** GRAND PRIX Microprose £34.99 Drive em- up More hot racing
action from author of the award-winning Stunt Car Racer.
Realistic, fast-moving and excellent 3D graphics. With up to
sixteen tracks to choose from, you shouldn't dire of taking
these Formula One buggies out for a spin.
* **** s,stersgiana Rainbow Arts £N A Platform Just to be trendy,
here is the ultimate underground hit.
Nintendo forced this game out of punters reach because of its likeness to the megasuccessful Super Mario Bros series. Praise indeed, pity the game is no longer available on the open-market.
* *** OVER HEELS Ocean £7.99 Arcade Adventure This transfer of
the old Spectrum game has been well worth the wait. Primitive
graphics and sound but phenomenal gameplay.
Hopefully, this could pave the way for adaptions of some of other eight-bit classics like Aliens, Delta, Forbidden Forest, Lode Runner, Lords of Midnight, Park Patrol, Pastfinder, Raid on Bungling Bay, Thrust, and so on.
* **** HEIMDALL Core Design £30.99 Arcade Adventure Graphics
easily up to the standard of Dragon's Lair complemented by
really meaty gameplay, too.The ultimate in arcade adven
tures... brilliant!
* **** HUDSON HAWK Ocean £24.99 Platform This Bruce Willis
'action comedy' may have bombed at the box office, but Ocean
has managed to produce one of the better movie licenses of
late. Basic game style never really changes but Hudson Hawk
isn't dull so who gives a stuff?
* ** KICK OFF 2 Anco £24.99 Sport Simply the best computer
simulation of soccer to ever invade the silicon chip. Once the
fast pace and intuitive gameplay have been tasted, you'll never
go back to anything less. You can’t afford to miss this one,
especially as Anco occasionally releases add-on disks with
special tactics data for use during play.
Programmer Dino Dini is currently working on Player Manager 2 and Kick Off 3.
* **** KING'S QUEST V Sierra On-Line £40.85 Adventure Yet another
example of the classy fantasy graphic adventures coming over
from our American cousins.
Attractive to both novice and master. What about that price, though?
* *** IK+ System 3 £9.99 Beat'em-up Definitive example of the
genre from maverick programmer Archer Maclean.
Looks and sounds like a Bruce Lee martial arts movie, incorporating frantic combat and a great sense of humour.
Dramatic sampled sounds and super smooth animation of head-butt, face slap and gut punch moves make the game virtually unbeatable.
Are you a karate kid?
* **** LAST NINJA III System 3 £25.99 Arcade Adventure Will this
martial arts saga ever finish? Concept is looking long in the
tooth though the execution is bang up-to- date. Possibly the
best beat'em-up for avid explorers.
* *** LEANDER Psygnosis £24.99 Platform Head and shoulders above
most other platform games, Leander smacks of those Japanese
console games currently in vogue. Easily the most playable game
from the Psygnosis stable but even this can become a little
repetitive. Recommended.
* *** LEMMINGS Psygnosis £24.99 Arcade Puzzle Take command of the
wackiest collection of misdirected death-wish rodents ever
seen your screen. Click on a series of icons to make your cute
little Lemmings perform potentially life-saving skills like
digging tunnels, climbing, building bridges, and so on.
One of those games that will grab you until you've completed it. Psygnosis and DMA Design are promising extra level disks and a brand-new sequel.
* **** LIFE AND DEATH Software Toolworks Mlndscape • £30.99
• Simulation Unique game where you can become a surgeon in charge
of some unlucky patients with gut ache! If only the opera
tions could stretch beyond the stomach... ** LORD OF THE RINGS
Interplay Electronic Arts £25.99 Role Playing Game Fabulous
interpretation of Tolkien's masterwork with point 'n' click
icon interface and a series of graphic and text screens to push
the fantasy story forward.
* ** LOTUS KP..T CHALLENGE Gremlin £24.99 Drive 'em-up Surprise
hit of the year!
Similar look and feel to the C64 classic Pitstop 11 from Epyx. Features 20 competing cars, 32 cruel courses, precious pitstops and capital controls. Split-screen racing action for one or two players.
* *** LOTUS TURBO CHALLENGE II Gremlin £25.99 Drive 'em-up
Eagerly-awaited sequel brings eight new stages and improved
graphics. Like Sega's Radmobile coin-op, Lotus 2 also includes
fancy weather effects like rain, snow and, most impressive of
all, fog. In addition, four players can simultaneously compete
courtesy of an ingenious link-up option. Some players have
complained about the feel of this one, so try both games before
you decide.
* *** MAGIC POCKETS Renegade Mindscape £25.99 Platform Overrated
release which proves even the Bitmap Brothers can get it wrong.
Buyers guide »¦ Customary excellence In graphics and sound let down by unrewarding play.
* * MANCHESTER UNITED EUROPE Krisalla £25.99 Sport Popular soccer
game recently updated for the new international season.
Features four-player option when used with special joystick adaptor. Arcade and management modes to suit everybody.
* *** MEGALOMANIA Imageworks £30.99 Arcade Strategy Skillfully
crafted action wargame with some super sampled sound effects
and speech. Make your moves and watch hordes of little men run
around the screen killing each other. The boys at Sensible
Software have done players proud with a witty interpretation of
the genre.
* **** MEGAVRAVELLER 1 Paragon Empire £29.99 Role Playing Game
Entertaining, absorbing release based around the popular RPG
book. Contains loads of puzzles but not really written for
beginners.
* *** MOONSTONE Mlndscape £25.99 Beat'em-up • Overtones of a role
playing game set against a fantasy setting. Parental Warning!
Loads of decapitations and disembowelments are in here.
* * PACMANIA Grandslam EN A Arcade Perhaps the finest moment for
the cult video game character. Pacmania is an old but
competent conversion of the colourful Namco coin-op.
Every bit of your screen is filled with pseudo-3D mazes occupied by nasty ghosties out to get our hungry hero.
Excellent choice for younger players. *** PANG Ocean £24.99 Arcade Puzzle Lashings of addictive playa- billity and loveable laughs.
Even better when played with a friend.
* ** PGA TOUR GOLF Electronic Arts £24.99 Sport Compete against
sixty PGA Tour Pros In four-round tournament play. PGA Tour
Golt has three authentic courses (Sawgrass, Avenel and PGA
West) and a bonus fantasy course. Play against one to four
human or computer opponents and see your best shots again via
the Instant Replay. There are plenty of golf games available on
the Amiga, but none of them come close to this classic.
I i ¦ i i A A A A A POPULOUS 2 Bullfrog EA £29.99 Strategy One of the best games ever released. No kidding.
Basically the same play principle as Populous, only everything has been improved to perfection. Try to become more powerful than Zeus by defeating a series of Greek Gods and mythological creatures. State-of-the-art gameplay and presentation.
You simply cannot be without this game in your collection.
There are two versions, owners of one megabyte machines are treated to even better graphics and sound.
* **** POWERMONGER Electronic Arts £29.99 Strategy From Bullfrog,
the team that brought us Populous, this is another startling
example of how original games can be created by designers who
care. Life as a warlord is tough but immense fun. Spy on your
enemies, bribe the meek and send in your troops to attack. Get
the peasants to make food or invent something useful like
agricultural machinery or destructive weapons. More of a
'real-world’ simulation than Populous, with an incredible 3D
representation of rivers, hills, settlements, people and
battles which can be zoomed and rotated at will.
* **** °f Broderbund Domark £24.99 Platform Arabian swordplay and
hijinks with delicious sprite animation. Looks good, sounds
good and jolly well does you good. Hey Broderbund, what about a
sequel?
* **** PROrTENNIS Ublsott £24.99 Sport Who needs Wimbledon when
you can have the 'real-thing' all year round?
* *** MSS?"
Microprose £29.99 Strategy Build yourself a railroad empire in North America or Europe during the heyday of locomotion. Each territory has Its own economy, products and resources. Players must choose the right train engine and rolling stock for the job and keep the equipment up-to-date. Newspaper headlines keep you informed of events which could bring in new opportunities for budding tycoons. Typical Sid Meier release with an exhausting amount of depth.
* *** RBI BASEBALL 2 Tengen Domark £25.99 Sport Addictive
simulation that hits all the bases. Perhaps other software
houses should take note of how to expertly adapt a Nintendo
video game to the Amiga.
* *** DANGEROUS II Microprose £24.99 Platform Rick is ready to
greedily soak up your free-time. Beware, the game can be very
frustrating to play at times.
* ** g'SoW' Dynamlx Sierra Online £39.99 Graphic Adventure Above
average release inspired by Ridley Scott's Blade Runner
cyberpunk film.
No typing involved and it sports some lush location graphics and animations.
Plenty of disk-swapping for those of us without a hard disk. Far too expensive for most players.
* ** ROBIN HOOD Mlllennlum US Gold £25.99 Strategy Adventure
Kevin Costner and Bryan Adams have made huge amounts of cash
out of this legendary hero, so why shouldn't us Brits grab a
slice of the pie? Robin Hood is an epic game, pleasing to both
the eyes and ears.
* ** ROBOCOD Millennium £24.99 Platform Sequel to James Pond
Secret Agent is a real scorcher. Fantastic combination of
humour, platform play and cute graphics. How can one lonely
programmer produce a game of such calibre?
* **** RODLAND Storm £25.99 Platform One of the most playable
games to hit the Amiga in a long time. This Jaleco coin- op has
been cleverly brought to life without losing any of the
original appeal.
* *** monkeyfisland LucastHm Games US Gold £25.99 Adventure
There’s not much you can teach the George Lucas team about
creating top-qual- ity interactive entertainment.
The Secret of Monkey Island is superb in every respect: gorgeous graphics, seducing sounds and heaps of humour. This swashbuckling pirate adventure has absolutely no typing involved and incorporates a terrific use of dialogue. Requires one megabyte of memory.
* **** gHAOOW OF THE Psygnosis £34.95 Platform Ridiculously
difficult gameplay, most impressive graphics and ever so
overpriced. What else can we say? Oh yeah, Shadow of the
Beast 3 will be here soon.
* * SUPALEX Dream Factory £19.95 Puzzle Very taxing puzzle game
using a Pacman like character who shoots around various mazes
collecting Infotrons, small blobs, and heading for the nearest
exit.
Game play is extremely rewarding and despite its repetitive sounding nature, it never gets boring. Loaded with traps, and problems you are always assured of a new and perplexing challenge despite the bugbear of only having one life.
* ** SILENT SERVICE II Microprose £34.99 Strategy Accurate
submarine simulation set in the Pacific during the Second
World War which could do with a dose of excitement.
* ** SIMCITY Maxls lnlogrames £29.99 Strategy Influential urban
planning simulation which looks slightly tired against the
recent batch of god games.
Now sold with EA’s Populous. SimCity 2 should be here next year.
* *** ¦Kh.
Ocean £24.95 Arcade Shameful lack of imagination from the Manchester powerhouse. This carbon copy of the Acclaim Nintendo video game isn’t going to impress anybody. Will somebody convert the superb Konami coin-op, please!
* _ SPEEDBALL II Imageworks £24.99 Sport Based on the cult 70s
movie, Rollerball, this game is easily the best Bitmap Brothers
release thus far. Skillful mix of beat'em-up and a futuristic
adaptation of American Football. Possibly the last word in
sports games, but we're willing to be proved wrong.
* **** mosr Activision £24.99 Arcade Puzzle Marble Madness was
one of the first games to be released on the Amiga, although we
had to wait four years for the real thing.
Fascinating game design.
* *** STAR CONTROL Accolade £24.95 Shoot'em-up This one had the
crew at EMAP Towers hogging the Amiga when it first came out.
Sort of like Asteroids for the 90's with some spiffy sound samples from TV shows of bygone years. Requires one megabyte of memory.
* * STUNT CAR RACER Microprose £24.99 Drive 'em- up Inventive and
irresistible crash 'n smash race game with realistic suspension
and handling of the hot-rod cars.
Geoff Crammond, the brains behind Revs and Sentinel, produced some fast solid-3D graphics for the narrow suspended raceways. Grand Prix is his new attempt to simulate Formula One warfare. Stunt Car Racer is due to be re-released on budget.
* **** SWITCHBLADE II Gremlin £24.99 Platform Finally, a platform
slice'em- up which gives those pesky Japanese console video
games a run for their money.
Switchblade II is set across six enormous levels with over 600 screens of tense, claustrophobic challenges.
Hack-tastic, mate!
* *** SWIV Storm £24.99 Shoot'em-up Kind of like a sequel to the
durable Silkworm. Vertically- scrolling shoot 'em up which pits
your craft against all manner of alien fighters.
Continuous loading during the game means there's always something to shoot at. Why can’t all Amiga games be this smart?
* **** TERMINATOR 2 Ocean Acclaim £25.99 Arcade Smash movie hit
of 1991 should make a cracking good game, right? What there is
is well done but lacking in originality. Definitely not all
it could be.
* * THEIR FINEST THEUBATTLE OF BRITAIN Lucastllm Games US Gold
£24.99 Simulation Thrilling and historically accurate air
combat simulation set during the crucial summer months of 1940.
Players have the choice of flying eight famous planes includ
ing the Supermarine Spitfire, Junkers 87 Stuka and
Messerschmitt 109. Lots of special features like a mission
editor and replay camera with VCR controls.
Supplied with exemplary manual.
* **** THUNDERHAWK Core Design £30.99 Arcade Simulation Near
future chopper capers geared towards total action.
A mix of slick 3D polygonal graphics and simple easy-to- use controls. There’s no better helicopter sim on the Amiga at present. Another best-seller for Core Design.
Yah-hool
* **** TOKI Ocean £24.95 Platform Qualified conversion of the
strange coin-op starring a monkey in the leading role.
Marvellous bright backdrops and surreal sprites. Sadly, the basic gameplay isn’t that varied.
* ** ULTIMA VI Orlgln Mlndscape £30.99 Role Playing Game Every
Ultima is a masterpiece in its own right. Nuff said, mate?
Savage Empire and Martian Dreams use the Ultima VI game engine
and are now on their way.
* **** UTOPIA Gremlin £29.99 Strategy Despite a similar look to
Populous, this is really SimCity in space. Can you construct
the perfect place to live? Every game presents a new challenge.
* **** VIZ Virgin Games £19.95 Sport A far better game than
everybody was expecting. Adult fun which should annoy any of
your prudish friends or relations. Players have the choice of
playing Biffa Bacon, Johnny Fartpants or Buster Gonad in a race
around the streets of Fulchester. Watch out for cameo
appearances by The Fat Slags, Big Vern and Spoilt Bastard.
Roger Mellie provides the live commentary. Fans of the comic
will love it.
* ** WARHEAD Activision £24.99 Arcade Strategy Within the next
fifty years Earth will be attacked by horrible insect-like
aliens from a nearby star system. The survivors send you,
their last hope, to prevent total destruction of the human
race. Challenging space simulator with accurate flight
dynamics and forty progressively tough missions to conquer.
Listen out for the Gary Numan-esque soundtrack during the
intro sequence.
* *** MEGABLAST Mirror Image £9.99 Shoot'em-up Bold Bomb the Bass
soundtrack and silky Bitmap Brothers graphics. Journey
through five stages of evolution blasting everything that
moves (or doesn't). An essential purchase at this
value-for-money price. A benchmark shoot 'em up.
??** ZORK III Intocom Mastertronlc £9.99 Text Adventure Pinnacle of masterly text adventuring going cheap, what more could you possibly desire? How about the other Infocom games like Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Leather Goddesses of Phobos?
* *** SCREEN PRINTING?
I run a silk-screen business printing advertis- . »JLL* ing material.
Prinit ir Here we are with another batch of puzzling posers and stunning solutions, brought to you this month by Keith Evans, the man with all the answers.
Until now I've used silk- screen stencils to print on fabrics. I need to know if there's any way of computerising the serigraphy process to make my work easier.
Can I use my A2000 to print high quality colour images straight from a printer onto fabric? Are there other computer graphics possibilities that don't involve using tracing paper, etc?
Bjarni Olafsson, Rekjavik, Iceland.
There are a number of ways In which you could use your computer to help your production process.
Care Electronics produce printer ribbons which enable you to print full- colour transfers on paper which can then be Ironed onto fabric. These are limited by the resolution of the printer being used, and the.
Efficiency with which the printer creates colours.
However, the restricted number of colours and relatively poor Image quality would not make it practical for your requirements. Just In case, Care’s address Is; Dept CU, 15 Holland Gardens, Garston, Watford, Herts, WD2 6JN. Tel: (0923) 894064.
Alternatively, a number of the larger bubble-jet and paint-jet printers are capable of printing on acetate and so on. Isn't acetate and photo-reactive gel used to create the silk- screen stencils In the first place?
M s I have heard of people who've modified their bubble jet printers so that they print directly onto fabric.
The process involves removing the mechanical parts from the printer and attaching them to a frame through which the fabric is passed by the printer's feed motor. Although this seems like a very good Idea, it's not for the unskilled user to attempt, and
