Dear AMIGA FORCE I have recently bought an Amiga A600 computer and have now started to read your very good magazine. In fact, the first magazine of yours that I read was no 12, with the free hints and tips book volume 2. The reason I'm writing to you is that I would like to know if I can get hold of a copy of the first volume. I did look in the back issues but none of the magazines mentioned the free book. I do hope you can help. Gordon Tully, Wood End, Coventry ¦ Sorry Gordon, no can do we only print enough books to cover the news-stand mags (they're pretty expensive, you know!), so the back issues generally come without the free gifts attached. Sorry I couldn’t help more! Chris AN ESSEX- MAN JOKE Dear AMIGA FORCE Me and my mates are always fighting over which is best. Amiga, Nintendo or Sega. I gave out a black eye and broke an arm once (pleasant chap Chris). Now, can you answer this question: Do you need an Amiga to use the CD32? David Wilkinson, Essex ¦ I'm surprised you have any friends at all if you go around breaking arms when a disagreement rears its head. You should calm down lad! You don't need an Amiga to use the CD32 this is purely a stand-alone machine, unlike the Sega machine, where you need the Mega Drive to utilise the power (what there is of it) of the Mega CD. Obviously, the CD32 not only offers better value but it’s also a far more capable and powerful machine to boot! Chris WHAT'S IN A DATE? Dear AMIGA FORCE I have spotted your three deliberate mistakes on the calendar with the Christmas AMIGA FORCE.

CUI U I W SENSATIONS The New Year celebrations seem to be endless even though we're coming to the end of the first month of '94, the quality of games ever increases and the CD32's finally being treated seriously by software houses and press alike!
We finally managed to get our hands on Zoo CD, and, while it doesn’t exactly stretch the capabilities of the CD32, it's still a cracking game, with enough modifications and additions to keep you interested! Liberation, Lunar-C Overkill andSens b e Soccer are also covered not quite a full quota of games, but at least the number being released is approaching a respectable figure!
One of the problems with the current crop of software lies with the fact that the majority are ports, albeit occasionally with odd modifications.
What we really want are games created with the CD32 solely in mind, therefore forgetting the ‘limitations’ of one- button joysticks and 16bit power.
Of course, this all costs huge amounts of development money, which would have to be clawed back at consumer level. Without the user-base, that just isn’t going to happen; without really decent games, the user-base isn't going to expand. Over to Commodore, methinks it’s their machine, and some heavy development behind some mind-blowing games wouldn't go amiss.
Settlers wins the Rave Review accolade in this issue, having really impressed the AF crew with its in- depth gameplay. Those who found the likes of Powermonger and Populous to their liking will revel in this great new game! There's also a new footy- sim from Intelek, the team who put together Championship Manager, along with Goblins 3, Zool 2 and much more!
Finally, it’s goodbye from all the Force crew in Devon. We're of to bigger and better things, leaving AMIGA FORCE in the hands of those nice boys in Ludlow!
Currently available lor a cut-price £49.95, the Cumana CAX354 3.5" disk-drive below appears to be the perfect answer tor those wishing to end those disk-swapping blues. As slimline as second drives are likely to get, the CAX354 is an affordable and robust little unit, perfect for the first-time-buyer (crikey, we sound like an estate agent!).
Programmed by Silmarils, those people behind Ishar I and 2, Ishar Ill's due out in March April from Daze and could well be the best of the bunch. A host of features, additions and innovations are promised select a team from 100 different characters, create magic potions, become caught up in real-time fights, utilise teams from earlier games, and basically get caught up in what looks like one very absorbing adventure. Look out for a playtesf in the near future!
Other Daze goodies on the horizon include a footy-management sim and Robinson's Requiem.
Check out the preview pages for more information!
As of fhe next issue, the editorial control ol this fine mag returns to Impact in Ludlow with Nick Roberts as editor. So it’s goodbye to the fat tips boy jokes and constant digs at Ian Osborne and hello to a bright and sparkly new magazine. Thank's Devon milky, milky boys!

crazily eccentric Uncle's mecnanical invention. The name of
this creation's the Virtuat-Dimension- Inducer. By tampering
with it, our young hero, called Boris Dy the way, is
transported through time and space, amving in a strange
futuristic parallel.
¦ Core Design Universe is the latest release from Core Design.
We’ve managed to get our hands on a nifty playable demo of the game, and jolly good stuff it looks, tool The game itself is the sequel to Core Design's first adventure role-playing game, Curse of Enchantia. As with its predecessor, Universe's format is very simple. It's basically a point-and- dick, icon-driven adventure game, but the big difference between the two is that this time there's added text helping describe events to the player.
The story behind Universe is also very similar to Curse of Enchantia. The scenario revolves around the terrible plight of an ordinary lad, much like any of the guys working here! On second thoughts, we may be pushing the comparison a little too far. Looking at some of the weird and not so wonderful creatures that inhabit the darker recesses of these offices!
Anyway, this ordinary Joe's been dragged into another dimension by some powerful force or other. It was created when the fool messed with his Your task's guiding Boris through the alien cosmos in his quest to bring about the downfall of the cruel Emperor Neiamises. Whose ongoing war with the mysterious Mekalien Empire forms the backdrop for the game.
On his travels Boris may be either helped or hindered by various alien and not-so-alien characters. He must evade Neiamises' hostile armies who rule and oppress the indigenous populations of this dimension. The only question is can the poor young lad ever find his way back home to our cosy dimension?
From the goes we've had on the demo, this seems to be a really playable game, with overtures of the great Flashback. Moving around the world's very simple. All it requires is pointing the cursor to the destination and pressing FIRE on the mouse.
Boris then moves to the desired spot.
Across the bottom of the screen are icons depicting all the actions Boris can undertake.
There are seven icons in the first menu, including Action, Communicate, Look and Pick- _ ENNIS ¦ ¦ AND GNASHER Alternative Were you or are you still a reader of that legendary comic, the one and only Beano? If so, you know all about the dastardly j antics of Dennis, every mum's nightmare.
Well, look out! The Menace smashes and bashes his way onto the Amiga in the j forthcoming release from Alternative.
! Accompanying him in his very first home- computer game's his trusty dog, Gnasher.
There are over a million members of the Dennis the Menace fan club and they’re all j dancing in the streets because of the imminent release of their hero’s own game!
Alternative are pretty proud of what they've achieved so far, describing the game as ‘something different'. For a start, they've resisted the urge to produce a bog-standard platform adventure. Instead, Dennis and Gnasher are brought to the screen in a series of ! 3D isometric adventures.
Like the comic, all the action takes place in Beanotown, It's said to be a massive environment within which every character from the comic has his or her own house. For example, Mini the Minx has a house shaped like her distinctive beret.
The thrust of the game's menacing the inhabitants of Beanotown. Even now, Mark's rubbing his hands in glee. We already know he terrorises Torquay with his arsenal of children's weapons! Now he's looking forward to the computer game that also uses playthings such as stink-bombs, water-pistols, catapults and peashooters. All in a world of bright, colourful graphics and fun-filled music and sound effects.
With packaging designed and created by the same artists producing the weekly comic, this looks like being a hit with young and old fans alike. Expect more news very soon until then, tighten those catapults and keep those water- pistols full fo the brim!
MANIPULATING BORIS Boris can turn his hand to a number of actions with just the press of a single mouse button. Here’s a run down of just what the heroic little chap can get up to., INVENTORY MANIPULATE Up. By selecting one, you access further icons offering the different responses to the first command. For example, Action allows you to jump, duck, attack and use Boris’ mind to overpower enemies.
Once you click on one, the cursor returns to the main action screen and you point to the place you want the action to occur. If you want Boris to jump on a passing asteroid, wait for it to reach him and press the mouse-button after selecting the Jump icon. It’s all very simple and we found the game extremely addictive, even in its unfinished form.
The game features 3D-rendered animations and arcade-style sequences. For the techno-buffs among you, Universe also uses an innovative SPAC 256 colour system, which runs on all Amiga formats, including the A500. It's able to display Universe’s digitised, hand-painted scenes and their detailed, mood-setting background animations to full effect. Or so Core tell us!
We do know the animation looks to be top- quality, with Core promising even better things to come. Let's hope they aren't hollow promises.
Universe is shaping up to be an outstanding game and we don’t want to be disappointed.
Expect the release over the following month and a full review next issue.
I"'’" .. * Click on this icon and ' numerous other » t options appear.
These enable Boris to eat drink, push-pull, insert (oo- 1 er missus!), wear, throw, give, attach join, use (especially for those items that you’ve just picked up!), operate, open close (leave no gate open...), and examine.
While not used until you actually get further into the game, a well considered combination of these commands will prove vital to your success!
PICKUP |* ¦ see an item, you pick I it up! Of course, l| jpr pretty useful, others - rather useless. A few are downright deadly!
LOOK strange world, there’s plenty to look at out. Boris has 20 20 vision, which is a good thing considering that he has to study asteroids, settlements and planets from afar much of the time.
When you're not sure just what Boris has in his pockets (or anywhere else for that matter), refer to the inventory icon for an update.
ACTION Our Boris likes a bit
• of action. He can
* leap (quite a way, due to a very low _ gravity), duck (just
in case an asteroid or projectile is heading his way), attack
(some areas can get pretty hostile), or use his mind to get his
way (quite an imagination has Boris!).
COMMUNICATE When Boris comes into contact with other beings, his gift of the gab proves invaluable. He can whisper, talk or even shout, while he also has this pretty cool skill which allows him to throw the odd mind bolt or two.
Beware of using this skill against the wrong being, though, whether it be friend or foe.
AmiGa (11 There’s another of those survival-simulations looming on the horizon and bloody good it looks, too! Robinson's Requiem's the title to look out for and it’s being hailed by Silmarils as: ‘The ultimate test of human endurance in an alien world’. Hmm, we always thought that was standing on the shelf at White Hart Lane during a Spurs v Arsenal match and cheering on the Gunners, but that's another story!
Robinson's Requiem is set many light years in the future, in a time when man's spreading his wings ever further across the galaxy. You take the role of government agent, Robinson, sent on a reconnaissance assignment to a mysterious unknown planet.
The only problem's you swiftly work out the whole mission's a trap set by your own evil government. They want you out of the way and see this as the cleanest method of disposing of an agent without incriminating themselves.
The planet to which you've been sent is in fact a sprawling prison, known throughout the galaxy as an 'astral Alcatraz', from which no- one has ever escaped. Wow! Heavy stuff or what? These guys are almost as corrupt as John Major's government!
The game begins with you bailing out of your ship inside a deep and hostile jungle. Equipped only with a survival kit, which includes medicines, am mm sTjZYJMJVx tools and a micro-computer, to keep you informed of your physiological condition, your aim’s escaping from this barren world.
¦ Silmarils From what we've seen so tar, this game looks magnificent. It’s a massive panorama, with over three square miles of play area and ten different landscapes to negotiate. These include a North American Forest, an Extra-Terrestrial Village and a Lunar Volcano.
There are also plenty of nasty creatures about, such as dinosaur-type hybrid monsters, whose flesh Robinson can use for meat, and fur he can use for clothing. It’s also a good idea looking out for the prisoners who have been dumped on the planet and left to rot. As you might expect, they're a bit peed off and aggressive. Other hazards are the vicious Cyborgs responsible for protecting and maintaining the prison.
The name of this great-looking game’s survival.
Robinson has to do anything to escape from the planet. Silmarils say if this means amputating a limb, you have to do it. Don’t worry too much all the right medical equipment's stored in your kit!
This looks like being a winner. The world it’s set in appears to have just the right atmosphere for a survival-sim of this nature.
The game's due for release towards the end of February. If the glimpse we've had’s anything to go by, expect it to cause a bit of a stir. We’re still not sure about this ‘ultimate test of human endurance’ business, though!

Arnica Well.
On5 ec* « id superbly design ed Retire review!
,¦ What a terrific little game! I didn't I really expect too much, even after reading the accompanying bumf it sounded very much like a Populous Powermonger derivative.
But Settlers is more than just a clone it adds many new ingredients to the genre, such as building development, community expansion and many other ideas which don't just involve combat.
The depth's laudable, offering many surprises without being so complicated as to be baffling. There are charts, graphs and such things to study, but, with familiarity, they add to rather than detract from the enjoyment.
I T All in all, a fabulously addictive game, well worth shelling out your dosh on! ¦ ¦ The Blacksmith is a vital member of the community, without whom the armies would have no weapons and the workers would have no tools.
Simple really. Build your Blacksmith a home...Muff said?
Woodcutter working on stockpiling wood and the Stonecutter doing the same with Granite.
Each time a site's chosen for a new building, it has to be connected to the rest of the Town by road. The roads run between the flags, marking the edge of each building. If they're not built, the little workers cannot get to the new construction- site and work's delayed.
Sensible strategy's vital As I said, everything in this complex game's linked. For example, there's no point building a Butcher s unless you already have a Pig Farm to get meat from. Similarly, to produce weapons you need a Steelworker and an Armourer. This makes for a game requiring plenty of intellectual thought. What do you build first? Are you going to concentrate on agncultural growth, industry or creating a powerful army. Charts show you which production you’re concentrating on. Raising and lowering the levels changes the production emphasis to the desired area.
Wm m Plenty of statistics help keep tabs on what's going on there's information to access via the icons at the bottom of the screen. You can check how many buildings are under construction and which are now producing products, an important menu once the Town begins to grow. It's easy to lose track of what's going on where without it.
Plenty of graphs show the production levels of different items.
Another option available is attacking enemy buildings. You need plenty of Knights to achieve this. The first step's to build Garrisons, Watchtowers and Guard-Huts near to the enemy base. Then you can train the Knights to attack opposing forces.

T HANK 1 k C s Dear FORCE Boys mn I have recently bought Allred Chicken but I keep getting killed. Is there anyone out there who could give me a cheat?
Anyway, I think the mag is excellent and you should keep the cut-out ‘n’ cheat cards (despite what others say).
Darren Kieg, Clwyd SYNDICATED QUESTIONS Dear AMIGA FORCE I was wondering if you could answer some of these questions?
1 Do you know the best place to get games?
2 Should I get a HD or External Drive?
3 Why get a monitor when a TV gives pictures just as good?
4 Will there be a mission-disk for Syndicate? I really hope so!
5 Will you please continue your Syndicate tips for all missions?
That’s enough questions. Ahhh, yes, constructive criticism. Could you have a page for people who want to sell things? Also, could you definitely not have disks, no matter how many people ask you to! If you can’t keep getting as many cheats as you have, then don't repeat them. Keep the cards and books as long as you can. Other than that, please stay as you are!
Tim Wheatley, Lincolnshire Thanks for the comments and praise, Tim!
0' We re back!
All in one piece, despite the demoralising defeat inflicted 5SjS§ V upon us by ¦ TUFC O' H J Supporters' Club.
We went down 5- ¦B 2, with Stix and Jase scoring the goals. Chris F squandered a hatful of chances, while the lad Smith did his best in goal.
It was only the ineptitude of the defence (the lack of it, actually) that led to the other team cracking home so many. Too many had designs on glory... Send your little anecdotes and digs to FORCE NINE MAIL, AMIGA FORCE, Impact Magazines Ludlow, Shropshire SY8 1JW.
¦ Well, Dazza, as luck would have it, we have a load of tips on Allie Chicken in this very issue.
Can't say fairer than that, can we?
Chris CHEESED OFF ruvm CHESHIRE Dear AMIGA FORCE This is the second letter that I've sent. Wish I knew what happened to the first, maybe it got ripped up by someone? I would be grateful if you could find a picture of a person and print it in the magazine so, Just for that (and because you said please!), here are the answers to those queries: 1 Either your High Street store, where returning faulty games is all the more easier, or check out the ads in AMIGA FORCE, where you may find the odd bargain or two!
2 Grab yourself a hard disk if you've various adventure games using a multitude of disks (HDs are imperative for earlier Sierra games). A second disk-drive's by no means essential but it saves much disk-swapping.
3 Actually, a TV picture’s by no means as good as that of a quality monitor. It may seem like a bit of a luxury, but the difference in sharpness, quality and clarity between a medium-res monitor and a television is very noticeable.
4 Uh-oh! we seem to have reported a non- event here. There is a mission-disk lorSyndicale but it's for the PC version only, I'm afraid. Sorry!
5 I'll have a word with the tips boy and see what I can sort out.
Chris TIPPING BODY BLOWS Dear AMIGA FORCE I think your mag is the best out there I got the I first issue and have bought AMIGA FORCE ever | since!
Could you tell me if there are any cheats for Escape From Coldilz or Syndicated Thanks for the tips on Flashback keep up the cheats, they're really useful.
As for Shane Daunt's letter in issue 12, concerning which is best between SF2 and Body Blows, it has to be Body Blows! SF2's actual figures aren't dark enough, they could do with an outline so they show up better. That's what I think, anyway!
Andrew McFee, Worcester I More praise if we're not careful, it may go I to our heads!
I sense this BB SF2 debate looks set to run and run, but only if you have something to say on the subject, will it be printed. Take Andrew's lead and give a reason for your dislike of the other game there’s no point dismissing it without giving a valid reason.
And what about Mortal Kombat and BB Galactic have they stolen the crown from under the feet of the others? Write in and let us know what you think. Best answers will definitely be up for the Letter of the Month award!
Chris I can throw darts at him.
Neil Fumival, Cheshire ¦ Ah, the culprit here would be our Mr Powell, as your letter concerned tips did it not? I daren't print his picture as it would scare off too many readers, and I don't think I'm allowed to send such a monstrosity through the post. Fret ye not, though we'll throw the darts at him for you!
Chris JOLLY POOR SHOW Dear A-FORCE I read your review on Micro Machines and thought it was very poor. You started talking about film licences which have nothing to do with the gameplay. It also deserves more than 89% I would have given it about 97% as it's a superb game.
Also, could you review the classic Wings? It's a lot better than Knights ot the Sky. I would also agree with Paul Walker of Warrington who has a superb idea of an adventure tips section I'm having problems with Monkey Islands 1 and 2.
Finally, are Sensible Software bringing out a third Sensible Soccer as Goal's crap. If so, when?1 John McGillivray, Redding, Falkirk ¦ The problem with Micro Machines and this is something both Ian and Mark pointed out is that, while it’s unquestionably a fine game, it lacks the parallax-scrolling and technical achievement of the MD version. In our eyes, this costs points, hence the sub-90% rating. At the risk of repeating past replies, such things are a matter of opinion after all, as my old grandmother used to tell me, if we all agreed all the time, the world would be a dull place.
We'll look out for Wings, although it will have to go some way to beat KOTS. The adventure page now has two votes anyone else for a dedicated section?
Goal, crap? A little controversial there! Sensi Software will be bringing us Sensible World ol Soccer over the forthcoming months, allowing you to manage as well as play in teams. You can be sure we'll be at the front of the queue when it comes to lining up for review copies!
Chris Dear AMIGA FORCE Please could you answer these few questions? I would be extremely grateful.
1 Will there be a CD for the A600? If so, how much will it cost and where can I get it from?
2 For Xmas, I got an A600 and a Citizen Swift 90 colour printer. Do you know if there are any printers that will allow me to create and print a poster?
3 Will Kevin Keegan's Player Manager be released on the Amiga?
¦ Weeellll... 1 No, only for the A1200.
2 Try Deluxe Paint by far the most versatile program for the price.
3 It's been out for many a month, under the plain and simple title of Player Manager. While it’s quite a jolly little game, it has too many faults you can’t move onto other teams, there's only one cup and the options are quite limited. Maybe you should wait a while for Sensi's effort.
Dear Sir Madam Recently I purchased your brilliant magazine (issue 12). I noticed you were giving away a tips book (issue 2, G to Z) . I was wondering if you could please send me issue 1, A-G.
Jonathan Codd, N.Ireland ¦ Sorry, can t. See the answer below!
Dear AMIGA FORCE I have recently bought an Amiga A600 computer and have now started to read your very good magazine. In fact, the first magazine of yours that I read was no 12, with the free hints and tips book volume 2. The reason I'm writing to you is that I would like to know if I can get hold of a copy of the first volume. I did look in the back issues but none of the magazines mentioned the free book. I do hope you can help.
Gordon Tully, Wood End, Coventry ¦ Sorry Gordon, no can do we only print enough books to cover the news-stand mags (they're pretty expensive, you know!), so the back issues generally come without the free gifts attached. Sorry I couldn’t help more!
Chris AN ESSEX- MAN JOKE Dear AMIGA FORCE Me and my mates are always fighting over which is best. Amiga, Nintendo or Sega. I gave out a black eye and broke an arm once (pleasant chap Chris). Now, can you answer this question: Do you need an Amiga to use the CD32?
David Wilkinson, Essex ¦ I'm surprised you have any friends at all if you go around breaking arms when a disagreement rears its head. You should calm down lad!
You don't need an Amiga to use the CD32 this is purely a stand-alone machine, unlike the Sega machine, where you need the Mega Drive to utilise the power (what there is of it) of the Mega CD. Obviously, the CD32 not only offers better value but it’s also a far more capable and powerful machine to boot!
Dear AMIGA FORCE I have spotted your three deliberate mistakes on the calendar with the Christmas AMIGA FORCE.
They are 25 May, 16 October and 10 December. I claim my prize!
Kevin Tootil, Lowestoft ¦ Yes, the people in production hold up their hands there was an almighty foul-up with the calendar. It could happen to the best of us (it constantly does). As a prize, Kev, we’re sending you all the spare calendars so you can re-write the whole year out for us!
¦E3 TOP THUMPS TIT LiUrflON I Al 15 So So.
YSL W-tO Dear AMIGA FORCE In reply to Ben Johnson's letter in AF10,1 decided these ratings would be excellent in that old card game Top Trumps (if you don't know the rules, find someone who does!). I have made my own set of cards using ‘sticky- back plastic' (you Blue Peter fan you! Chris), and a few screenshots taken from AF and various other magazines. As well as Body Blows and Streetfighter II, I have taken characters from Mortal Kombat and Streets ol Rage II. Also Lionheart and Assassin. I have used different categories to Ben, but most are fairly similar. Though, of course, my scores
have varied greatly.
Awards Strength: Kossak, Skill: Vitu, Speed: Vitu.
Special Powers: Raiden.
Average: Max. I would be grateful if you could send my cards back as I spent many long hours making them.
Ben Wheway, Wolverhampton | ¦ That just goes to prove AMIGA FORCE readers aren't just the smartest, they're also the most hard-working! Your cards are great, Ben real works of art.
It's also a pretty cool idea, although I couldn’t get the rest of the team to play, as none of them knew the rules, despite having them explained umpteen times! Anyway, as a reward ] for your hard work, you've won yourself the Letter of the Month award and the year’s subscription that goes with it!
Dear AMIGA FORCE Your magazine's brill, BUT, when I was reading issue no. 10 I was horrified to see on your subscription page, in massive pink and white letters, ARE YOU REGULAR?'
Okay, so the majority of your readers are male, but I am not. And the above statement is rather personal for us girlies! So, I'm sorry to be brief, don’t let it happen again. Otherwise, I'll recycle your magazines by using them in my cat's litter- tray. I hope you get my point.
Jackie Windsor, London ¦ Well, you've got me there. The headline in question simply questions the regularity that you pick up your copy of AMIGA FORCE. No ambiguity here. Nobody's clever enough!
Chris H Mortal Kombat ' :-V.
5 Cannon Fodder My five favourite games are: I I I 2 I 3.. I 4.
I______ THE MAN FROM MALTA, HE SAY.. Dear AMIGA FORCE It’s me again! This time I'm not writing for cheats, but for other purposes. First, thanks for the answers to the last letter, also to Nathan Muscat.
1 Is F-17 Challenge better than Microprose's Formula One Grand Prix and than Nigel Mansell's World Championship?
2 I think I must be the only Amiga-owner who doesn’t know the SFII special moves. Could you give me a short description of each one and how to activate them?
3 Can you list me any great games for my collection? I like adventures and platformers, I hate Lemmings'.
Robert Gaucci, Malta ¦CheetsRob cjad we could (and can) be of assistance!
1 F-17 and Nigel Mansell are both pretty cool games in their own right, very much aimed at the arcade boy-racer. Formula One Grand Prix is tops AMIGA FORCE Readers' Chart!
It's very obvious what game everybody got for Christmas! Frontier Elite II got over 60% of the overall votes, proving that we were spot on with our 96% rating way back in our Christmas issue! An Elite IIP It seems unlikely, but it would certainly be a popular game if the success of the second in the series is anything to go by!
Premier Manager 2, another favourite in the AMIGA FORCE offices, moves up to second spot, taking over from yet another of our lunch time favourites, Sensible Soccer. Premier Manager 2 is facing some tough competition in these hallowed halls, though, since Championship Italia arrived. A mail-order game in the Readers Chart? Why not?
Virgin claim fourth and fifth place, both through some very last-minute votes. Modal Kombat, last issue's rave review, got a hat-full of late votes, and Cannon Fodder wasn't that far behind. Contenders for the top spot? Most definitely. Watch this space!
To cast your vote in the AMIGA FORCE Readers Chart, scribble the details on the form below, and send it to AMIGA FORCE READERS CHART, IMPACT, Case Mill, Temeside, Ludlow, Shropshire, SY8 1JW.
If you like the simulation angle.
2 Check out back issue 3 and the manual for more info!
3 Rob actually included a list of the games he already owns, but it wouldn't have made interesting reading! The best games of recent months you don’t already own include Frontier, Settlers, Syndicate, Championship Manager '93 and Italia, and Modal Kombat. They’re my favourites anyway!
Chris READER REVIEWS Dear AMIGA FORCE Me thinks it would be a good idea for you to send out to your readers some PD games to review and send back to you, in time for next month's mag.
This would mean you would receive an opinion from the people the games are targetted at.
A-FORCE workers like yourself should not have to muck about with these games just get stuck into the nitty gritty of big games. If you’d like, I will review the first one for you (if you take up the idea) and write a great review on it. Good eh?
Congratulations on a fantastic mag and long may it continue. Well, I must be off to my bagpipe lessons. See ya!
Brian McSporran, Strathclyde, Scotland ¦ I’ve heard of Strathclyde (I think) they've got one of those crap Scottish football teams have they not (let's face it, there are many crap Scottish football teams)?Not that we can talk our local footy team’s Torquay United, who aren't exactly rearing the best in footballing talent (Lee Sharpe did play here a few times, though, and Ryan Giggs’ brother is in the resen e team).Anyway, back to your reader-reviews idea. We'll certainly give the concept a good airing in the offices and discuss it with the powers-that-be If anybody else is interested,
then write in!
Dear AF I want to point out that in the What's Where?
Section in issue 13, there's a pic of the Modal Kombat sign. Fair enough, but beside it says Modal Kombat playtest, remember? 'It’s hot, it’s here and it’s exclusive! Find out how Cage and co.
Are progressing on page 14.' On reading this, I immediately flicked through to page 14, only to be fobbed off with a picture of a guy injecting some rat with pink poison or something.
I have a few questions to be answered: 1 Why is this?
2 How do you think this makes your mag look?
3 When will MK really be out and playtested?
Don’t get me wrong, I'm a big fan of your mag and buy it every month, but I just wonder what's the point of saying something when you don't mean it?
David MacLachlan, Glasgow, Scotland ¦ Whoops you've found what the production team term as a technical problem. All along, MK was supposed to appear as a playtest.
Unfortunately, the contents were finalised before the playtest was dropped, slipping through unnoticed. Those responsible have been severely reprimanded (by re-writing faulty calendars!).
You'll be pleased to hear that MK was reviewed last issue, scoring over 90% and a Rave with it!

Shades always in place, he moves like he's lived in the Bahamas all his lite you know that kind ot liquid movement, seeming to require no eftort, which is, well, cool, tor want ot a better word. It's probably due to the big, bouncy trainers he wears (they'd definitely set you back a few bob!). As you may've tathomed, this guy's the King of Cool.
Cool Spot's the American marketing symbol for the drink that quenches your thirst. That's 7-UP to the advertising-jingle-illiterate among you! A massive star over there, his game's hit these shores after prowling the cartridge-scene for a while, it's now the turn of us Amiga owners to get a look in. About bloody time, too. This is a game no self-respecting platform fan should be without It's just so awesome!
Ensure you've collected 60 Cool points before attempting to rescue your captured buddies. Otherwise, it's a fruitless journey because you won't be able to bust them out. ¦ Virgin, £29.99 Leave him standing and Cool Spot stands there and clicks away!
Cool, eh?
Wipeout To succeed in this brilliant game, you've got to prove you're hip. This means getting a Cool rating of 60% or more on each level, achieved by collecting a certain amount of Cool points.
The point's rescuing Spot's males, caged at the T end of each level, in order to have
* a serious paarty! His buddies are ; • all incarcerated inside
small, " cramped cells, with no thought J given to the rights
ol a small, red | Spot to be kept in humane 'y'MM'wiM'jil
conditions It's your duty to smash them out and save Itieir
coolness from this tale worse than dealh!

% Cool Spot's a versatile fellow he pushes objects around, climb up and down ropes, and fire at crabby crabs He even gets his yoyo out if he gets really bored... ,ReV i6wSlN piam .VX l£ . - Yo dude! The one, the only
- '¦1 Cool Spot crashes onto the Amiga, proving that cool isn't
just a state of mind, it’s more a way of life! Yeah, don't ya
just love it. As hip as he is. Cool Spot makes for one helluva
hot, hot game. The animation on the little red Blob's amazing.
I mean, who’d have thought so much could be done with such a
simple design. Somebody deserves a pal on the back for creating
this character. The same goes for the relaxing Calypso rhythm
accompanying the gameplay. Close your eyes and be forgiven for
thinking you're drifting on a boat moored off a sun-soaked
Caribbean island. Chris is right to say the gameplay itself is
nothing original, but personally I wouldn't hold this against
the game. I mean, how much is original these days? What counts
is the entertainment value and for me this is second to none. I
can pass time chilling with Cool Spot any day of the week!
Nasty, uncool types drain our boy’s energy when he comes into contact with them. His energy level’s depicted by an image of his beshaded face in the top-left corner of the screen. The more he's hit. The more his face disintegrates. Lose it all and it's curtains for Cool Spot. To take on these evil creatures, Cool Spot does have one weapon. He can fire the small, clear bubbles of carbonated fizzy drink, released by the product he endorses.
As we all know, it's cool to be clear. The only difference is Fido Dido fells us this over Oozes closs«*« it's sooo cooool!
Here, but then again he's a ©C pretty damn cool cat as well ¦' He's got IT!
The whole game moves to a it S heavenly Calypso beat, which perfectly captures the feeling ol CO* lying on a sun-drenched beach in the Caribbean. Well, you need all fhe help you can get on a wet and windy Monday morning in the middle of winter in deepest, darkest Devon! These sound effects are superb, especially at neighbour-annoying volume levels.
This atmosphere is perfectly complemented by the central character's animation. It s a game oozing class in the looks department Spot's moves, walk and facial expressions are outstanding When he's bored, he yawns and then chills out by playing with his yo-yo, before removing his shades and giving them a quick clean Sooocooool!
This guy doesn't just ]ump like normal platform characters. Oh no, that's not hip enough! Instead, he does a graceful forward somersault before landing sure-footedly back on terra-firma. He even hangs from balloons with the grace and style of a bom superstar.
DEVELOPERS: IN-HOUSE DISKS: 3 Sure the Cool Spot looks spectacular, but what . About the game? Well, to be honest, it's a standard platform M adventure. Nothing more, nothing less. Collect the bonuses, dodge
5. .* the bad guys and leap from platform to platform not OOO
exactly breaking new || grounds of originality It's even
downnghl irritating in places, especially if you hate
platformers. For example, tall while leaping from balloon to
balloon and it’s back to the beginning. Start all over again
until you get it exactly right. That's the basic gist and I
find it extremely frustrating! Even so, if platformers are
your thing, you can't beat a bit of Cool Spot. Lovely to look
at and not at all 1 bad lo play Give il a whirl, you |*il |Q|
never know n may give you a lew II1V tips on playing it cool!

3. 5" BLANK DISKS ¦ Sierra, £TBA Blount, the most talented
reporter at the Goblin News, dreams of the day he comes up
with a scoop. Now. It appears to have arrived that’s if
Blount can make it to the respective kingdoms of King Bodd and
Queen Xjna.
GOBLINS 3 These two sworn enemies are prime suspects in the theft of the key to the mystical labyrinth of Well- Being. The guardian ol the key, Behorn, has died and Wynnona, his daughter and successor, has disappeared. What's happened to her? Where's the key? What do the mysterious rulers, Bodd and Xjna, look like? Only one Goblin's brave enough to seek the answers. Step toward Blount be brave.
Be bold and solve those bloody puzzles!
I Solve the enig«*a of the levels j As you may've guessed, it's 1 not difficult after all, as you take I the role of Blount, the intrepid I roving reporter. Goblins 3 s the I ultimate in puzzle-solving games. ' Each level's split into three screens, jam-packed with fiendish tricks, red herrings and traps. Solve the enigma of the level, moving to the next. It's not easy, let me tell you! Frustration's the order of the day on more than one occasion.
Negotiate Goblins, without screaming at the screen, and you're a better human-being than me!
Cartoon caper* Controlling Blount's simple. Use the mouse, clicking on the part of the screen you want him to move to. And he does the rest. Similarly, click on any object you want the lad to pick up. Use or look at and watch the resulting mayhem unfold. That's about it on the gameplay side it's all about brain-power, though most success comes through trial and error, rather than sudden inspiration.
Conceived to look like a cartoon, the graphics in Goblins are well-designed and impress. The game's lull of visual gags pull a rope, for example, and Blount's dragged off-screen or flung in the air. His facial expressions are amusing, while the accidents befalling him can be hilarious try hitting the goll ball with the club to see what I mean.
Blount also meets a posse of helpers on his travels. The first's Chump the parrot, who's trussed up on the pirate ship. Using the club and plunger sorts him out! Others include Fulbert, the boa- constrictor, and Ooya, the sage these characters all help In one way or another. Control simply requires moving the cursor over them and pressing FIRE. Then, click the mouse on the part of the playing area you wish them to move towards. It's vital working out what these guys can do. Without their help, Blount always gets stuck.
The game sounds nice and jolly to an extent, it is. However, there are drawbacks, detracting Irom the entertainment value. Most noticeable's the horrendous amount of disk changes needed for moving through the game. For a start, there are six disks. However, this isn't the worst of it if you wish to use any of the icons at the top of the screen, a boring rigmarole of disk-swapping ensues. It's incredibly irritating and ” spoils a game full of potential.
The icons allow access to helpful options, including a Joker card, instructing you how to complete the level. There's also a copy of the Goblin News, for checking out the level you're H] on. And an inventory of the items Blount carries. They help a great deal if you bother to use them. Frankly, the amount of time it takes getting into them makes it a chore I can do without!
Anolher minor irritant's the squeaky, repetitive music it's a nightmare! The only option's turning it off before losing sanity. Personally, though, I enjoy music it adds to the atmosphere and some sort of jolly tune here would go down a treat.
To be fair. I’m not the best puzzle-solver in the world, so I was biased against Goblins 3. However, it had potential I leel was wasted The game looks really good. BlUjjl with some big. Bold graphics. It’s a ly 1| shame a lew niggles let it down. ¦ P - ' j ¦ This is one of those games flat- llB | tering to deceive. As far as the H !’-5r graphics go, it's exceptional, with close attention to detail and some hilarious, colourful animation. They grab your attention, but the gameplay lets Goblins 3 down. The constant disk-swapping’s a pain in the arse, the music's annoying and I found it all
a little irritating after a while. If you're a big fan of frustrating puzzle-solving games, this may appeal. Personally, I’m not and having to go through a succession of floppies, while I play, drives me round the bend! ¦ ¦ Get Fulbert. The boa-constrictor, swinging the candelabra.

After all. It looks cool on the game advertisements too!
¦ Gremlin Graphics £25.99 He's back, he’s bad and he's dressed in black! Zool. The Ninja ol the Nlh dimension, blasts his way onto the Amiga.
This time he’s got a bit of company in the shape of his babe a cool customer who goes by the original name of Zooz.
Zool returns to once again face attack from the evil forces of Krool, but now it's worse then ever (well it would be wouldn't it!). Krool's determined to get revenge for the humiliation inflicted by Zool in the original game. He's sent his morphing henchman, Mental Block, to sort out the bug with attitude This guy - can change his shape into Cl any number of diabolical I 1 permutations and his one goal in I OfQi life is to splat our hero. I _ «* That's the scenario for what's I *®fCn’ basically a re-run of Zool's first I ornmmmM ‘ adventure. The actual I gameplay’s exactly the same, ( On* but
then again who cares? It still V I*** makes for an addictive and highly playable game. Zool 2 hasn't attempted to be innovative in any way. Gremlin know what fans of their Ninja wamor want and they've served up the same menu as before slick graphics, catchy tunes and fast-paced platform perils.
Two'i company Just before the game begins, you've the option of playing as either Zool or the new female character Zooz Pick either of them by highlighting the character; it really makes no difference which one you play as. They both have In two-player-mode you choose to control Zool and Zooz on the mission or. Alternatively, both play with the same character. As I said, though, it really makes little difference.
Completing a level demands arrival at the finish icon, having collected 99% of the tokens found there. There's a counter in the bottom left of the screen letting you know the current percentage you’ve collected.
There are six stages to battle through, each containing a number of levels Entering the next stage requires you first fight Mental Block in one of his morphing guises he changes shape for each _________ of your confrontations, so there's Slfrlr no chance to become ¦¦ 1C I complacent after you beat him graphic* I the ,irs"ime- .

“ Honestly, it's no yolk!
¦ Other stages include ed to be Blueberry Hill, expect some
* "* shocks here. Mount Ices, home of some freaky frozen foods
and Tooting Common, where the Pharoah s curse awaits All these
stages lead to the inevitable final confrontation with the
diabolical Mental Block.
The further you go, the closer to Mental Block’s own home you get It s at this stage that some extra help comes Zool's way. It takes the form of msly, as Zoon (How many more Zool's going to get in Zool 3. Shi such a title? I mean, there are only so many letters in the alphabet left to stick on the end of Zoo!). This mutt comes on the scene if Zool collects three of the Zoon bonus icons. Grab them to enter a special bonus level in which Zoon helps you on your way.
Bonus bonanza As you know, if you've played the original. Zool's world is full of bonuses concealed behind the name of the game's sponsor. Ah, commercialism, it's what it’s all about I suppose. Even if this is a bit extreme!
As we all know, Chuppa Chups, a rather tasteless lollypop brand, sponsors the game. All the big bonuses are hidden behind boxes marked with the Chuppa Chups' symbol. Open them by jumping into the symbol to get hold of a host of extra goodies. These include Smart Bombs, which float around Zool's body, extra lives, Super Shot, for a real blasting gun, and, of course, the famous Twozool. Splitting Zool in halt for double trouble.
Zool 2's a great game, combining furious action with plenty of platform shenanigans.
However, it contains nothing that marks it as truly exceptional there needs to be progression from the first game. Instead, we re just given more of the same.
This appeals to anyone who's a fan of the original and it s worlh getting if you love games ot this genre. Graphically, it’s colourful and well- presented with some great little details and animation, but again, we've seen it all before ----- The scrolling s smooth and '| CflriS!
Sr i««« i -Jil ¦ I was a massive fan of the onginal flffl Zool and I'm glad to say this picks P™ H® up where that game left oft True, it's not exactly attempted to try to be innovative, but I can live with that. Who cares when the gameplays this addictive? The levels are well-designed, they're wonderfully colourful, while the music and FX are bubbly, not to say catchy. This all adds to the overall positive feel of the game.
¦ If at first you seem to be stuck, try shooting through the walls. They often disappear to reveal a passage to other parts of the level. ¦ Including Zooz, the female Ninja, adds a bit of political correctness. It's about time we had some female characters equal to the guys.
Anyway, enough politics. Zool 2's packed with great features, looks good and. Most importantly, it's fun to play. Ultimately, it's addictive and well worth a look. ¦ (Above) Take your pick between Zool and Zooz. In this age of equality there's no difference in their strength.

¦T I ¦ DISKS: 2 11 » I ¦ PLAYERS: 2 I ¦ GENRE: PLATFORM I ¦ 1200 COMPAT: YES ¦ HD INSTALL: YES ¦ Black Legend, £25.99 He's fat, he’s round, he bounces on the ground... Yep, this is one large fella. He even makes certain members of the AMIGA FORCE team look slim. Well, maybe that's going just a little too far!
¦ ¦ You fat bazza! You lal bazza!
Off Yeah, let's all take the mickey out of the gravitationally-impaired, horizontally-challenged among us!
Not exactly politically correct, it's true. However, Black Legend don't seem to be cruel in their choice of jokes. Instead, Fatman's a celebration of all the things the goody goodies say are bad for us. But everyone enjoys doing!
There are some good visual gags, plenty of foul noises and lots of slobbish behaviour. It’s all wrapped up in a decent platform romp, that, while never being a classic, is good enough to pass a few hours enjoyably. All in all worth a look, but maybe it's also worth waiting to see if it’s ever going to be a budget release. ¦ THE CAPED CONSUMER average platform collect-'em-up, but it's raised by humorous animation. My only reservation is that once the fun gets a bit boring, there’s not a lot left to keep you interested. Even so, it’s a novel idea, which deserves applause for trying to be at
least slightly amusing.
The idea behind Fatman's jumping and running through 13 action levels in seven cartoon worlds.
These include the City, the Caslle of the Vegetarian Vampire (basically cne huge dig at those namby-pamby birdseed-eaters) and the Mysterious Egyptian level.
To negotiate each level, Fatman avoids the nasties populating his wodds. He's got a variety of attacks at his disposal including the old ¦i “ » stand-by jumping on them J I and weapons taking in belly-butts, | burps, carrots and mushrooms.
I. I Remember, it’s not fun being leapt I on by 20 stones of
quivering jelly- FOUS I like flesh! Simply press DOWN and FIRE
to swap the es weapons.
As you expect from a parody on platformers, there's an obligatory end-of-level guardian to overcome before moving onto the next stage. Fatman needs to be at his most gross to defeat these beasts, so remember to hoard plenty of burps, carrots and mushrooms! All the weapons are in limited supply. To keep them stocked up, 1 i Fatman has to find the relevant tokens I dotted around each level. After all, it's not Fatman's the alias for Roy Fat, a mild-mannered inventor who loves his food Roy could eat for England. Consequently, most of his inventions revolve around food and his stomach. Perhaps
his most amazing creation's the Food- Duplicator, which makes a k copy of any piece of food __ passed through it. This _ I Packed with humorous jokes invention made Roy's Fat OF' POC restaurant famous throughout ¦ the world. I Of Everything appeared rosy for 1 IkUHl the rotund one until a multi- I IMM* national company. Thindicate 1 Sg (gedditj, decided to sort him out. I ¦ They produced junk food, but were losing business to Roy.Their managing director, Ted Thinsin (geddit again), offered to buy the Food-Duplicator. Roy was close to agreement until he heard that Ted wanted to destroy his
creation to gain a monopoly on junk food sales. Knowing this would mean hunger for the world's hoards of fat bazzas, Roy, alias Fatman The r - .. - Caped Consumer, is determined to destroy Thindicate. Can .
Fatman succeed? Can Thindicate 'a**' be beaten? How many pieces of , pizza can you eat in one sitting? _-k Only by playing the game can afe you find the answers! As you M -mrn-iir may've guessed, the story's a parody of all the ridiculous plots normally found in platform games.
Fat's the way!
Fatman’s based around a humorous idea having an utter slob for a hero and lives or dies on your reaction to this. If you find belching, beer bellies and copious eating hilarious, you're in for a treat. The gameplay isn't brilliant, basically it’s an humanly possible to burp goodies for the I indefinitely (Even our Tips fat git to chomp I ¦ Look out for the hidden passages, shortcuts and secret rooms on each level. They're packed with goodies for the fat git to chomp down on! ¦ Boy has to take a rest down on! ¦ J sometimes!)
Fatman's packed with humorous visual jokes and animations. Check out his chicken-chomping, if you leave him standing for too long. His energy level's also represented by a chicken at the bottom of the screen. As it loses flesh so Fatman gets weaker.
To be fair, Fatman's an enjoyable game.
However, it lacks the depth to be anything more than a couple of hours fun. After that the jokes begin to wear a bit thin '"‘y (Ho,ho), while the playability isn't «n| strong enough to overcome this. I J|| ly Good fun temporarily, but no more Id than that I'm afraid. I DEVELOPERS: IN-HOUSE

COSMIC CodeMasters, £25.99 Cosmic Spacehead's a proud man
he’s the first of his species to discover a new world, known as
Earth. Sensing the beginning of a great tourist attraction,
Cosmic rushed back to his home planet spreading the good news.
The only .
Problem's he betrayed the first rule of any professional tourist he didn't record the trip on film! A serious gaffe for an alien tourist!
Great game to play M Nobody from his home wodd believes a word he tells them.
However much he describes the strange race populating Earth, or - the many wondrous sights in store for visitors, his mates just scoff. Cosmic’s kicking himself for his stupidity, but what can he do?
The only option's returning to Earth, touring the sights, and this time, taking a bloody camera! Oh, but there’s one more problem Cosmic's skint.
He needs help raising funds to organise a return trip. That's where you come in help the little blighter collect the necessary resources, though don't expect it to be easy.
Design more likely.
Each destination, including Linoleum, a deadly space station and Detroitica, an asteroid used as a huge car factory, is divided into sections. They contain other characters Cosmic can talk to and get valuable objects trom.
There are a number of commands to use at the bottom of the screen such as 'Move', ‘Talk’, 'Look' and 'Give'. Simply position the cursor over the command and press FIRE. Then do the same over the object or person to receive the edict. Simple stuff, making the game easy to control and get into.
To move between sections ot a stage there are heaps of arcade-style W screens to overcome. In fact, 32 in total, including high-speed car chases, crazed robot-attacks and blasts through asteroid fields.
Straightforward platform levels also demand mastery - all entail leaping from platform to platform, dodging weird-looking nasties. Keep an eye out for Cosmic bonuses to collect they give a welcome extra life, if you gather 20.
Cosmic cartoons!
The game s designed like a 1950s science-fiction cartoon with bright, bold colours, bizarre-shaped buildings and spaced-out cartoon characters. The game also attempts to be humorous. For example if you use the 'Pick-Up' command on the cute girl n the fairground stall at Cape Carnival, the response is worth a giggle or two! It’s not exactly sidesplitting stuff, but it does add to the overall cartoon atmosphere.
The two-player mode, to be honest, seems to have been thrown in as an after-thought with no real relevance to the main game. All it’s about is hurling pies at your opponent. There are four arenas to choose from for a light-hearted battle the idea's hitting your opponent more times than he wacks you. Not exactly awe-inspiring stuff and I see little point in including this. It hardly adds to the quality of Cosmic Spacehead. Oh well, it’s harmless fun I suppose!
Cosmic's great to play and wodh a look for anyone who likes a game requiring a bit of intellectual thought. It boasts heapsZ1'' of sections, plenty of tricky tasks and ft •m.M a host ol arcade games. An original game that's just that little bit different, Your task’s guiding Cosmic around his home planet of Linoleum. The object's completing loads of problems and tasks, in a particular order, to progress. For example, on Linoleum, finding and playing the Fruit Machine may win money. Getting the Helium Balloon causes the scary monster to float away, while a passport can only be obtained by first

At least it could get a better mark, if it’s price was taken into account!
'Alio 'Alio falls down on every count. The gameplay's dull and uninspired, giving no incentive to carry on. Graphically, I found it unappealing and lacking severely in the sound department, with only a terrible tune to distinguish it.
Ast I I've never been a fan of the comedy (if that’s not a slur on humour) in the television sit-com and the game fares little better. Avoid like the plague or some Frenchman eating garlic!
¦ Alternative, £24.99 Listen varey carefully, I shall zay zis only wance. 'Alio 'Allo's a dire game!
Alternative certainly seem to be churning out their fair share of turkies at the moment that other appalling TV-tie-in. The Munsters, and High Sleel immediately spring to mind. It's all very well saying these other games are cheap, but that - doesn't excuse the release A of dross like this. Fl This game isn’t as bad as ™ those titles, to be fair.
M A dull, uninspirin game However, when you consider it's a full-pricer (when we saw the standard of the game, we immediately assumed it was a budget release), you can see the lack of quality on show. Alternative have produced a truly awful game and I'm sad to say, it's an insult to expect people to spend £24.99 on it. I'm going to ave to zay zal zay are taking ze pooh, pooh just a bit!
The concept incorporates the characters and some of the plot-lines (if that's not too kind a word for the crap standards set by this terrible sit-com) from the BBC1 series. You're in charge of the sad cafe owner, Rene, or in two-player mode, the other player controls Michelle, Rene's bit of skirt.
The object's to guide Rene through the levels, avoiding the guards and the SS in search of gold. His ultimate objective's to reach the Colonel’s chateau, open the safe and replace an original painting with a forgery. The painting in question provided much merriment for fans of the show. You probably know the one I mean.
It's described throughout the programme as ‘The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies by Van Clomp' (oh the wit, someone call an ambulance I think my sides have just split!).
Rent's revenge Rene throws items, helping him as he battles the guards they sap his energy when they touch him. Each level contains plenty of weapons

guards. However, you’ve only a short time to escape as the

The graphics are poorly-designed there seems to be little attention paid to detail. There's some weird animation, such as a dog taking the longest pee I've ever seen!
The controls are sluggish and the game's boring. You end up taking hits from guards because you can’t be bothered to waste time dodging them. All in all, a dull, uninspiring game with no redeeming features. I suppose they managed to make it |ust like the TV programme. H after all!

rendition ot the all-time great, blockbuster science-fiction movie. Terminator 2's the sequel to the equally superb Terminator (not exactly difficult to figure out!), both ot which starred that mountain of glistening flesh, Arnold Til be Back' Schwarzenegger.
The second movie takes up the story after Arnie, the bad guy, had been despatched straight to hell in the original Terminator. In the sequel, he comes back as the good guy, determined to save the son of Sarah Conner, the woman he tried so hard to kill betore. Out to stop Amie and wipe out the Conner family’s a new, advanced Terminator- model, the Tt 000, changing shape to look like anything or anybody unfortunate enough to come into contact with it.
Hosta La Vista, Baby!
So there you have it a potted version of the film I’m sure you've all seen, anyway. If you haven't, what the hell's wrong with you? The arcade coin-op strove to remain laithful to the movie’s plot completing the same linear development, beginning in the future, returning to the present and saving the future, as the film.
The Amiga version does the same, resulting in plenty of mindless blasting and gratuitous violence. Don't ya just love it!
Terminator 2's an all-action, blast-everything- in-sight type of game. It's not subtle, it's not exactly taxing on the old grey matter, either, but it’s straight out of the Operation Wolf school of blast- em-ups. When playing this, expect your trigger finger to get plenty of action there’s no let-up in the waves of Terminators attacking you in all shapes and guises.
There's a choice of a one or two-player game. In the two-player mode, player one must guard the left side of the screen and player two, the right.
You can only be hit by bullets and bombs striking your side of the screen. Hits are shown by the depletion of your energy bar at the bottom of the screen. There’s also a bar showing the amount of firepower you've left. The lower this gets, the slower your gun fires.
To recharge the gun, there are power-ups hidden inside crates dotted around the landscape to gather. Blow up the crate, revealing extra bullets, missiles and faster, more powerful guns.
To fire the missiles, simply press the right mouse- button they destroy the enemies much quicker than normal gunfire.
You begin in the future, the year 2029, to be precise, after the machines have conquered the world and the Skynet computer-system reigns supreme There's a small band of resistance fighters left, who are determined to preserve what’s left ot the human race. These desperadoes are led by one John Conner.
In the opening levels, you take the role of Conner as he battles through the barren, A DE GAME H 1 ?

its very best, or worse, depending on your viewpoint.
Don't expect to do much more than point your gun and tire in Terminator 2, though. It follows in the great tradition of Operation Wolf and its many clones. Simply aim at your target with the controller and press the trigger, despatching the baddies.
£r nk Despite this, I enjoyed playing 72. It's fun.
Especially when you really can’t be bothered to do anything mentally taxing (since when did you ever attempt that! Ed). However. I did find myself tiring of the killing after a while.
A;‘ Compensating a little for this, the game looks good, with some smart graphics and smooth animation. I advise anyone thinking of buying this to consider what they want from a game. If it's mindless violence you're after, look no .further than 72. You won't be disappointed!
Inhospitable landscape to reach the Skynet and send a commando back in time, protecting his younger self. You begin trying to get to the human hide-out, where the Terminators are attacking the humans huddled inside.
On screen you can see your gunsight, which has to be trained on the different machines coming towards you, as the game scrolls horizontally across the terrain. These early Terminators are just bare metal; they're accompanied by flying machines and larger, tougher robots. AW - Once you’ve battled past them, there's a I .

Bloodthirsty violence Later in the game you take the role of Amie, trying to shield the young Conner from the T1000-model Terminators. Again, there's no real need for a plot because there's really nothing to think about. The only object's blasting everything in sight before it shoots you.
'Intorminatorablo' To be honest, this can get a little tedious after a while. The gameplay’s fairly exciting to begin with, but, before long you realise all you have to do's hold your finger down on the fire-button and use the occasional bomb. Not exactly breathtaking!

Liberation's stunning to look at and bloody good to play. It’s a huge maze of a game, demanding ] and getting the full concentration of the gameplayer. The Droids are easy to control and respond quickly to instructions. Similarly, the Instruction-icons cause no problems so it's a game you can get your teeth into immediately. The opening sequence explaining the scenario's outstanding. The digitised speech is top-quality. As is the stirring musical score. I recommend this to all CD32 owners.

«mI(u Mindscape, £TBA hen I first got my hands on Liberation, my first response was WOW! It seemed like I'd finally found the game the CD32’s been crying out for.
Exceptional graphics, strong storyline, a brilliant introductory sequence and gameplay backing up the good looks.
Incidentally, one of the voice-overs in the animation at the beginning of the CD s An w An extremely good game. | by television star, Neil All Mornsey. Trivia-buffs w*rPi» among you know him as Will Rocky in Boon and Sammy 0OO( the ‘Chamois' I clean SP windows, me!' in Noel's 001114 House Party. Just thought you should know.
Anyway, the game looks and plays brilliantly.
What more could a rabid gamer want? Well, remember these were initial impressions. After playing a while longer, I began to get a bit bored.
What at first seemed great playability became a little repetitive not enough to rum the game for me, but sufficient to warrant a reappraisal of my first impressions.
It's still breathtaking to look at and admire Unfortunately, there are holes in the gameplay.
The gaming area's immense, making full use of the CD32's capabilities the thing is, it became tiresome running around it, or driving in a taxi.
There's a sense of deja-vu about entering buildings, seeing and doing the same things.
Future shock After that early appraisal of the game's potential, let me tell you what Liberation's all about. It’s set way in the future in the 29th Century. Earth's a festering world slowly dying, ravaged by increasingly adverse weather conditions and generally abused by huge multi-national corporations. One such organisation's Bio-Corp which won the contract producing law- enforcement, city Droids.
These machines have been malfunctioning and slaughtering innocent people. In a massive cover- up, other innocents have been unjustly arrested, protecting the corporation image. The aim of the game's taking control of four Droids programmed to locate and free these captives in an attempt to uncover this evil corruption.
There’s a captive to release on each level, but getting to him's no easy feat.
The game’s viewed from the Droids’ perspectives, as you move them |W i through the streets looking for clues to ' | the prisoners' whereabouts.
You talk to people you meet, or shoot them if they get on your nerves!
Each Droid also has a backpack for placing the items found on your travels in they include door- cards. The most important clues are usually behind locked doors, so it's vital finding the cards corresponding to the door-numbers. To pick up an object, simply position the on-screen cursor over it and press FIRE then transfer it to one of the Droids' backpacks.
There's a hell of a lot more to the game, of course. For a start, it's important knowing where you are at any time. Otherwise, you spend ages fruitlessly running around. It's also a good idea checking every building with a fine toothcomb before leaving. This ensures nothing's missed that could be useful at a later date.
Summing up, this is an extremely good game and one of the few attempting to use the potential of the CD32 to the full. However, it seems to me lacking that little extra, turning it into a classic.
Even so. Other companies take note.

JH kf I sU 9 9 Testing the Tinies ¦ Mindscape, £29.99 There’s a new gang of cute characters in town and they go by the name of the Tinies.
These guys are considered the most mischievous creatures in the whole galaxy, but you've got to ask yourself: how much damage can a small ball of fluff do?
Well, quite a lot actually! A rebel gang of Tinies stole an exploration ship on their home planet, intending to invade Earth. Being little scallies, they played one prank too many on the journey forcing them to turn around and head home.
On returning to their home planet of Sklumph, the rebels realise things aren’t quite the same. A particularly nasty Tiny, known only as the Wicked One, is in power. He’s taken the King prisoner and used a huge Metamorphose machine to change all the other Tinies into either mindless fools or Bjv. | plnVflblC savage beasts. .

Doomed to be controlled by the sadistic Wicked One forever.
I always like a good plot and this is nothing like a good plot! No, unfunny joking apart, Fury ol the Furries is a great little platform puzzler. It's actually quite nice to see some thought going into the game's scenario as well.
Mindscape seem to be concentrating on creating cute little characters the Tinies follow hot-on-the-heels of Alfred Chicken. Thankfully, these guys have loads of personality check out the way the Swimming Tiny kicks his little legs or the cool dives performed by any of the gang when jumping from a great height. While it's true to say these effects are merely cosmetic, they still add to the general light-hearted atmosphere ol the game.
Your goal s reaching the Castle and saving the King from the Wicked One's clutches. There are eight regions of the Kingdom to negotiate before reaching the Castle, each containing loads of devious levels. The object of each level's overcoming the obstacles, puzzles and creatures blocking your path as you search for the exit sign.
Each level has a duration limit, depending on difficulty, so there's no time to hang about pondering over puzzles!
A Tiny can run and jump with the best of them.
Their movements are swift and responsive to the joystick-wielding vital in a game relying, to a great extent, on the precision ot your leaps and the timing of your runs.
The Tinies can also use four different magic spells, only available when the
- relevant Tiny icon’s lit in the I bottom-left of the screen. To
S transform your Tiny, simply press ..I ; down when stationary.
1 ¦ _ 1 The spells are identified by Ifiely their colour, the Yellow power allowing the Tiny to C*1throw fireballs. The longer ) the fire-button's held down, ~the stronger the fireball; a yellow Tiny also runs through flames. If you want to swim underwater, using the Blue power turns you into an aquatic champion.
When underwater, pressing the fire-button spits wafer bubbles at any enemies in the vicinity.
The Green power allows a Tiny to throw out a line and hook himself onto any object or part of the surroundings it’s possible to walk on. He also pulls stones by throwing a line onto them vital in levels where there seems to be no escape. Finally, the Red power creates a mad, munching monster!
This Tiny is so hungry he eats most of his surroundings. Give him a brick and he happily chows down.
The animation on all Tinies is excellent check out the muncher if you fancy a laugh. When he opens his mouth, it's bigger than the rest of him!
This is just one example of the great sense of humour in Furries. Wit's an extra element that's always welcome in a game and there's plenty more to find and enjoy.
Furious Furries ¦ This is one of those games that s so fiendish, it grabs you the moment you pick up the joystick. The controls are easy to use, with simple icons at the bottom of the screen and a very responsive central character. As far as the graphics go, this game is well up-to-scratch, with plenty of cute details, colour and good animation. This all helps to increase the game’s playability.
Fury of the Furries is a fun game, with plenty of humorous touches. It's challenging, frustrating in the best sense of the word and has some cute central characters. This is a must for fans of the genre and still well worth a look for everybody else. 9 The action begins in the Desert region with some gentle teasers to get you used to the game- mentality. Believe me, once you progress further, things really become fiendish and it's important to make use of the different Tiny powers. If the icon's lit, it usually means Tiny's necessary to complete the level and find the exit.
On many levels it’s worth finding the colour- fields. When the Tiny goes through one, he can gain an extra power if the corresponding coloured icon isn't already alight. However, walk through one of these fields, already possessing the power, and you lose it. Each subsequent passage through the colour-field either activates or deactivates that power.
As you progress onto the later stages, it's an idea keeping an eye out for teleporters, marked by sparkling stars. Step on one and you reappear in another part of the level. The game’s also full of bonus levels. Find these to get extra bonuses, collecting 100 to gain an extra life.
Fury of Ihe Furries is both playable and extremely addictive. The puzzles are just hard enough to have you pondering for a while, but not too tough that this turns to frustrated annoyance.
Everything's logical, it's simply a question of getting on the game’s mischievous wavelength!
The game also boasts some great graphics and catchy tunes. I've mentioned some of the animation before and it's worth saying again that the quirks of ¦ the Tinies make for endearing new characters. I fancy we may | not have seen the last of these |l cute characters.

Overkill's no different from the game we reviewed way back in issue 13, while Lunar-C seems to have been added to justify the release of the CD. After all, I don't think a basic Defender-clone, with no significant improvements, can merit being released as a full-pnce CD on its own.

Battle through the three levels, making up each stage of the Universe, progressing to the next.
Your ultimate aim’s reaching the aliens' home planet at the centre of the Solar System.
First, clear the three planets of all their evil alien-invaders after clearing one stage, you move on, engaging new nasties against fresh backdrops. Before you can do this, however, annihilate the level guardian-baddies. These guys are bigger, badder and altogether tougher than the previous aliens, so advancing through the game’s no picnicl Helping you overcome the aliens are plenty of bonus weapons to pick up, including Triple- shots, extra speed and bombs for peppering any alien ground-attack.

The only point I’d argue with Stix is the addictiveness of Overkill. I loved this blaster when we had the Amiga version a couple of issues ago. It’s fast, furious and keeps getting better, the further into it you go a great game, that's a must for shoot-’em-up fans.
But why bother getting the CD32 version? It’s no different, so what's the point? I'm still waiting for the shooter to take the CD world by storm.
Someone, please put me out of my misery! ¦ Human commandos drop from the sky, destroying crystals on the ground, a further boost. However, if collected by the aliens, the crystals let them create new waves, attacking you. Picking up the humans gives you bonus points and allows them to drop back, destroying more crystals.
That's it for Overkill. There’s nothing different in the CD32 game worth shouting about. The sound’s about the only feature altered and it's nothing special! As I stated, this is a good shoot-'em-up, but not worth pushing the boat out for on the CD32.

Technically, everything's brilliant, producing a weird and wonderful environment and smooth, ultra-fast gameplay. This makes for a challenging, without ever being frustrating, dose of platform-adventuring.
My only criticism stems from the fact it's a CD32 game. On this level, little innovation or enhancement to the playability has been attempted. Fans of the Amiga version may feel they've wasted their money if they splash out for what's essentially the same game.
¦ Check everything you come across, things aren't always what they seem.

Zool’s quest is battling through seven worlds, destroying the evil perpetrated by this deadly duo.That’s the scenario for all Ihe different formats on which you can play Zool. However, you want to know how the CD32 version enhances the gameplay, don’t you? Well, to be honest, it doesn’t do much. The action does seem a little faster, but Zool has always been one of the most fast and furious games around, anyway. This apart, the changes are, like most CD32 versions of games, merely cosmetic.
There are some great musical scores and spot-on sound eftects the additional graphics are also fantastic. Check out the 30- antics of Zool during the loading animation sequences, between stages, and when all your lives have been taken to see what I mean.

The cheers ot the crowd escalate the excitement, especially In the two-player game. There's nothing more satisfying than hearing your tans' hysteria as you crash the ball into the back of the net. Mark knows exactly what I mean he's been on the receiving end ot so many drubbings in the Sensible Cup, he makes Swindon's

Goal-d«n ganreplay Sensible Soccer wastes no time in allowing you to access the match. It’s the mark ol a good football- simulation when you don't have to wade through loads of options screens to get to the nitty gritty.
The match is where the action's at alter all!
You begin by selecting a difficulty level, the type of competition you wish to compete in and the teams involved. There are 100 European teams to choose from and a selection of international squads.
Once you've settled on the type of match, you can select the weather conditions, length ol the game and. |ust before kick-off. Your team members and formation. Formations include the traditional 4- 4-2, various sweeper-systems and all-out attack.
These tactics can be altered during the match by calling up the bench. This pauses the game and puts you back m the tactics screen, allowing you to make a substitution or alter the formation.
Weather conditions change according to the month of the year you select to play in this only happens if you elect to have seasonal weather on.
The pitch can be muddy, icy or hard among others. All the different pitches affect the nature of the game, altering features such as the bounce of the ball, the way the ball skids off the surface and the ease with which the players can dribble. ¦ Swing corners in close to the goal-line.

cup competition. The players can select to play cups over one or two legs and choose to have extratime and penalties, should the match be drawn after 90 minutes.
Once into the match, it's impossible not to become addicted to the sheer speed of the game The playability's awesome, believe me the CD 32 version s lost none of the attributes making Sensible Soccer the brilliant game it undoubtedly is.
Joystick controls are simple, but provide you with a host of options when passing the ball. You can punt the ball long, play a short pass or a delicate chip, without having to think about the controls. It's this accessibility that makes for the fast and funous gameplay. The players respond immediately to instructions; they tackle, run and jump smoothly and are surprisingly well-detailed considering how small the graphics are.
The referee's quick to punish any foul play. We found he tends to give a yellow card for fouls in open play. However, if you bring someone down as they bear in on goal, expect to be severely punished, with the red card being swiftly dealt.
In short, I'm the world’s greatest Sensible Soccer fan. I can play it forever, whatever machine it's on. The CD32 version offers little new in comparison to the onginal.

In typical Dungeons and Dragons-style, that’s the heroic scenario behind the latest budget adventure from Ihe Hit Squad. Originally from Electronic Arts, Black Crypt's a huge, sprawling adventure that takes some playing. This isn't the type of game you can get stuck into without checking out the instruction manual. It's tough to play, expect to die regularly to begin with, and, if you don't refer to the maps in the manual, expect to get lost every time!
The first step on the adventure trail s selecting your motley crew There are four characters to pick a Fighter, a Druid, a Cleric and a Magic- User. Choose each of the four in turn from nine different experts in that field. You select from heroic-looking characters, ordinary Joes and hideously ugly monsters. Ask not what they look like, but what they can do for you!
Each adventurer has a set of attributes. Once you've chosen the characters, the next step's deciding on how you allocate their strengths and weaknesses. Skills include Power, Intelligence Dexterity and Wisdom you can award points out of 20 for each one from a limited supply. Hence, if makes sense making your Fighter strong, quick and dextrous, while your Magic-User needs plenty of intelligence, control and wisdom.
The action's witnessed from the perspective of the characters. You move the party around a maze of corridors, searching for access to the later levels as well as the magic Spells, Runes and Gems aiding your quest.

Clicking on the right mouse- button brings up a second menu, showing the objects each man’s carrying in his satchel. This menu also shows things such as the food each one has, Ihe different magic Spells they're carrying and any scrolls providing clues to the quest.
Bringing an object up to the face of the character you're controlling allows him to use it. Thus, after a battle, it's advisable using healing Spells and food, restoring energy.

Okay, it's complex, but a little intellectual thought never hurt anyone did it?
The game’s been inspired by the historic events that took place in Eastern Europe not so very long ago. You must enter a tempestuous land and find the right tactics to bring order amongst the turmoil and desperation.
There are some smart graphics for a game this huge, and a high degree of interaction between you and the programme you’re drawn into the action and get swept up in the atmosphere of diplomacy and military action.
Ashes is an innovative adventure lhal’s got the perfect scenario for our politically-correct times. As a budget game, I recommend this highly. Even if you’re not a fan of the genre, it’s worth taking a look when the price is this favourable. You never know, it may broaden PBH Digital Integration, £16.99 fter what seems like a trillion years, this game finally loads, or so you think. In fact, after playing for a couple of minutes, you find it’s time to swap disks once again.
This isn't my idea of an interesting game; it’s too boring to make wading through all the options and the outrageously huge instruction manual worthwhile.
Okay, I'm sure diehard-fans of this type of economic political- simulation may find something of value in Ashes, but I'm afraid I'm not one of them.
The overall aim ol the game’s bringing peace and harmony to Ihe entire CSR.
To achieve this, you pacify five CSR Republics - Ossia, Ruzakstan, Belokraine, Moldenia and Servoma. Pacify a Republic by either controlling the capital province and at least two other provinces, or all provinces except the capital.
Community programmes in the province; these are UC Building, UC Demolilion, UC Pacification and UC Ethnic Harmony. It involves a great deal of jumping around between numerous option and combat screens, as well as plenty of disk- swapping, of course.
The programmes need to be completed to calm a province. For example, Demolition involves removing buildings threatening the area’s well-being, while Ethnic Harmony requires the support of different ethnic groups in the province, clinching their votes in the democratic elections.
There's limited time before your efforts become undermined by the actions of reactionary groups. They're serious let’s just say their Idea of disrupting the peace talks is launching a lew nuclear missiles.
Hmm, nice blokes ehl Funnily enough, a nuke exploding in a province makes it difficult to pacify the people living there. Who'd have guessed that? Personally, an exploding nuke in my backyard always make me feel really happy! As you may’ve gathered, this game isn't my cup 1 of the sweet, steaming stuff. It's too long-winded, and ultimately, irritating to win my support.

You then elect to use flawless torpedoes, which never malfunction, or historical torpedoes, which have realistic faults and may be duds.

Once into the game, a list of icons at the bottom of the screen accesses the different functions and charts available. You can check the sub's bearing, it’s position in the Pacific Ocean and the location of enemy craft. There's also a periscope (it wouldn't be a sub without one), giving you a Captain’s-eye-view of the surrounding sea you rotate left and right to view the area.

The conflicts you opt to participate in are all named after the Commander of the submarine involved in the battle. For example, you can play as Commander Randall 'Dan’ Daspit, in charge of a Gato-Class submarine in a fight against a single, unescorted oil-tanker.

Yet more Lemmings lifesavers from our team of cuddly experts!
SPECIAL MISSIONS ¦ Special Missions are only really worth entering if you've plenty of lives and a lot of patience. Guide your ship with great care around the underwater caverns as contact with any wall means instant death.
Dotted around the walls are green arrows, indicating the safest route to the exit. When moving around the caverns, only _ use very short bursts of thrust to I correct positioning. More usually sends you flying out-of-control into one of the walls.
¦ The Trilons appear as two diamond-shaped ships joined at the tip. They spin around the screen until they reach the centre. The ship then splits into two separate parts both attempt to push your craft into the oncoming boulders. One touch from either ship is fatel.
Destroy them by blowing the craft away as soon as it - ¦¦ appears. Upon A destroying the tgj one half, the ’v - "ij other loses bearings for a 'gitrSSst short while . JJJbmBj k this is your - chance to ' " close in and - wipe out the i » 4 remaining ship. ’ ¦ The Beetle-Ships travel in shoals, moving randomly around until closing for the kill.
Although the ships have no arms, they're teeming so it's very easy to collide, destroying yourself. Pass the Beetle Level by keeping your finger on the fire-button and not remaining in the same place for too long. It's much harder for the ships to home in and surround you.
ORBIT PLATE ¦ The Orbit Plate's a large shining disc.
Although it’s easy to destroy, the fireballs it launches can hit your craft unexpectedly from behind.
Wiping out the ship's not really a problem just keep a good distance and blast with laser-shots. About ten hits are sufficient.
¦ When the Killer Orb approaches, thrust to the other side of the screen, turning to face it. II opens up and fires now shoot at it’s centre, the only place where you can cause any damage.
When the Orb's laser gets close, activate your shield for protection. Switch to the other side of the screen when the Orb moves again and repeat the whole process until the ship's destroyed.
SPACE WORM ¦ You travel at full throttle in your bid to destroy this foe.
The best method of attack’s staying on a straight line either across or down the screen.
The worm then stays hot on your tail, allowing you to turn and blast chunks out of the beast.
The body's the only weak point If1- »» but watch --- out for pieces flying off when i ' ' you shoot. - They explode *¦ .jfe immediately.
Damage to your ship it it's * ¦ The Weapon Transport’s more of a bonus ship than a serious threat. Resembling a small bubble-shaped craft, it moves gradually across the top-half of the screen. Transports only pass once across the zone, so ensure you blow them up as soon as possible.
Destroying the ship rewards your craft with an extra bonus weapon. The weapons are all explained in their own section later in this ¦ The Fire-Spiller's a real pain, moving slowly across the screen.
As it moves, it spins in circles and throws out an arc ot tire from the centre. Contact with any tlame destoys the ship.
The only way ot destroying it is approaching from the blind-side and pumping it full of shots. It takes about ten hits before the ship finally ¦ Mine-Choppers are possibly the most deadly enemy. Automatically drawn towards your ship, they're large discs with spinning blades on top. Avoid at all costs as contact annihilates your ship.
¦ The large ships initially appearing are not the real danger when attacking a bomber. Avoid the large ships as you wait for them to pass by, and release the real threat, the Fire-Faces.
They attack in much the same fashion as the Fire-Spiller and should be handled in exactly the same way.
Jet a short distance away and fire with every available weapon to destroy them. Dodge the BONUS WEAPONS ¦ The bonus weapons can only be collected Irom the Weapon-Carriers on each level, so ensure you grab every one. Some prove vital if you want to survive the later levels.
MISSILES ¦ Homing Missiles are the most deadly weapon in your arsenal. They destroy a THREE-WAY ¦ The Three-Way weapon's one of the first to collect and can be very useful in almost every PLASMA ¦ Selecting Plasma gives you a multipurpose weapon the shot-power s mrrn ¦ The Burster releases a flaming Orb, exploding on contact with the opponent.
Although the weapon looks good when fired, it’s not really that potent mainly due to the delay amiGa ¦ FEBRUARY 1993 ¦ I DEATH MOVES | oystick-wielding should be in tune with our I descriptions for maximum effect. Explaining further, we use TOWARDS to describe 'towards' your foe, whether facing left or right When we say AWAY it means tap your joystun from the enemy. All button-presses are described as punches. If you've got a one or two-button controller, consult the manual to see how to inflict a punch.
TELEPORT Sneakiest ol all special tournament moves, make sure there’s sufficient room to reappear behind your opponent. Teleport and then let (ly with a flurry of fast punches to your opponent's head from behind.
RAIDENTRICITY Raidentricity's only effective as a long-range weapon. Using it when close to an opponent usually results in you being exposed to a beating COMBINATION MOVES For Rayden, start with a Torpedo, driving your opponent across the arena. Follow up with a couple of blasts of Raidentricity.
Allow your enemy to close in, then Teleport behind and finish them off with a volley of punches.
uproar amongst do-gooders rears its violent head on the Amiga.
Furthering your blood-letting escapades, the A-FORCE crew have spent many hours in the pit with Sub-Zero, Scorpion and even the lovely Sonia, producing these player's tips for vevery character. We've I even included the world-famous £ Final Death moves! t**'™ TORPEDO The Torpedo's for pushing opponents away, allowing you to inflict a combination move. It’s also useful for gaining distance to launch Raidentricity.
RAYDEN The Thunder God’s an excellent choice lor the intermediate player. His special moves, used properly, finish off almost every tournament fighter.
Game creating FATALITY MOVE Raidentricity Overload. Deliver a shocking experience, enough to send heads spinning, with the following move: TOWARDS, AWAY, AWAY, AWAY, PUNCH.
FATALITY MOVE Power-Punch. Cage's devastating power-punch is carried out by closing in and pressing: TOWARDS, TOWARDS. TOWARDS. PUNCH.
SHADOW-KICK Cage's Shadow-Kick's similar to Rayden's Raidentricity only execute at a safe distance. Not too far, though, as the kick won't fully connect.
FIREBALL Let loose the Fireball at the beginning of a match, catching your opponent off-guard. In close combat it’s less effective.
COMBINATION MOVES Start with a Fireball, then close in while your opponent's stunned, delivering a devastating Roundhouse Now, rapidly execute a Shadow-Kick. Knocking the rival back tar enough to deliver another Fireball.
Johnny's one ot the fastest and most agile Kombatants, demanding dexterity on the energy, preventing any HEAD BUTT Draw near, landing it straight to the forehead. Ensure you're close a missed butt usually ends in a severe FATALITY MOVE Heart Attack. Reach out and hurt your opponent, using the following combination: AWAY. AWAY. PUNCH CANNONBALL The Cannonball's effective at a distance especially when your rival's recovering from a vicious knockdown Don't execute when your foe's on his toes, as this attack's very easy to block KANO Kano’s steel skull makes his Head-Butt particularly
That aside, Kano's comparatively run-of-the-mill.
COMBINATION MOVES Deliver a Flymg-Punch, tollciwmg with a volley of hard punches to the head While your rival's reeling, inflict a Roundhouse and finish them off with a Head-Butt SPINNING BLADE The Spinning Blade, as with almost all projectiles, is only deadly from far range. The blade, unfortunately, can be thwarted or counter-attacked with hardly any effort.
VAN DAM SPEAR Coupled with another move, the Spear can be devastating. Launch it, then deliver an Uppercut Letting the Spear loose, as your rival's recovering from an earlier attack, allows you to maintain position, fighting a flawless match.
SCORPION Scorpion, a versatile and easy character to get to grips with, is ideal for beginners. With practice, deadly LIU KANG Liu Kang, the Bruce Lee look-alike, flies around the arena. He also kicks with lightning speed.
SUPERSONIC-KICK The Super-Kick's almost unbeatable.
However, only use it when your foes are af least half a screen away.
Otherwise, you sail over their heads, leaving yourself open to attack.
MOVES Liu Kang's combination composes vicious kicks and awesome speed Begin with a Supersonic-Kick when you land, follow with a Roundhouse, somersaulting away from rivals. When they approach, execute another Roundhouse as you land to catch them off-guard, before finishing with a Fireball FATALITY MOVE Helicopter Spm-Kick. Carry out this malicious move by drawing near, then using: TOWARDS, DOWN. AWAY, UP. TOWARDS.
TELEPORT-PUNCH The Teleport-Punch is only potent if synchronised so you reappear in exactly the same position as the competitor. As your foe has a nasty habit of moving while you’re in mid- Teleport. Most attacks are futile.
MOVES Apart from the Spear-trick, Scorpion's best combination is Spear and Uppercut, Ihen leap towards the enemy, delivering a Flying-Punch. Next, inflict a volley of punches to the face, followed by a high-kick to the face.
FATALITY MOVE Hellfire. Execute by getting a short distance away and then perform: DOWN, DOWN. PUNCH.
¦ FEBRUARY 19941 ICE-FIRE Sub-Zero’s Ice-Fire. Like Scorpion's Spear, is more powerful combined with an Uppercut. Watch out, though, for the double Ice-Backfire, created by firing another blast while your opponent's frozen.
COMBINATION J MOVES Sub-Zero can carry out similar tricks i to Scorpion, using his Ice-Fire POWER-SLID SUB-ZERO Sub-Zero could be considered Scorpion's alter-ego. Pitching the two together's probably the most even contest out of all Kombatants.
Sub-Zero’s moves, once mastered, are a force to be reckoned with.
. Close in on the enemy, still stunned, and strike TT-rtfS LEG-TOSS The Leg-Toss is the most impressive of all Sonya's attacks.
Utilise it to catch the enemy offguard. If you're quick enough, perform a Leg- Toss and get next to your opponent before he gets back on his feet. Execute another toss, removing large amounts of energy.
COMBINATION MOVES Begin with a Flying-Kick, followed by a Leg-Toss and then a Roundhouse. Wipe out the enemy with an Energy-Wave, quickly backed up with a high-kick.
AmiGa ¦ JANUARY 1994 ¦ Be wary ot mission-select ion from the Bulletin Board, t?.- fcwfn Although some missions offer EvaL t- 3 hl9h Pnce *or completion, e I wnc* they could cost the ultimate price your life.

In particular, a lady named Alison Edwards should be shunned at all costs. She pays well for her trips around the galaxy, but uses them to work against the Mafia even completing one mission upsets them. It also leads to an assassin on your tail in almost every system entered.
Groups of four or more people are usually a safe bet as they’re only visiting friends in other systems. However, these trips are only really possible when you’ve acquired a ship large enough to make the trip worthwhile.
A further marginally-dangerous mission's carrying tax reports stay alert at all times for an ambush Remember only lake deliveries which are on your route to another system. It's because the |obs don’t really pay enough to take the risk of making large delours.
Scour the bulletin board and you often find packages need delivering. Always check the contents before accepting missions, as it’s very easy grabbing the cash and realising too late you’re carrying illegal items. When taking jobs from the bulletin boards, demand half the cash in advance, preventing you losing out completely if your employer decides to do a runner without paying up.
No scruples about legal status, some systems can be very profitable for both gun-runners and narcotrcs-dealers. As an outlaw, search the anarchical ones for items you require. However, remember honour amongst thieves doesn't really ring true in this game When planning your route, ensure you don’t make a detour through a Federation system. Otherwise, you could well find yourself a magnet for serious police interest.
Guard against taking missions to the far reaches unless, of course, you’re doing the water-run and the stop-off's on your way.
When you reach the outer-systems, stay vigilant and ensure the ship's fully- armed. Many systems are controlled by hostile religious groups. They don't take too kindly to visitors, electing to blast them Into oblivion.
If you’re armed to the teeth and have Apart from the route between Sol and Barnard's Star, mentioned in our earlier tips, we’ve also discovered other areas are valuable sources of cash.

Dunng the cash-run between these two systems, always check bulletin boards for packages, passengers and missions to FormhaulL It’s only a short detour and a quick way of boosting cash. For easy money, also carry luxury items to the port of Schmder Town on the planet Discovery in Ross 154 and Delta Pavinons there's an acute shortage and top prices are paid for whatever you can take.
Check out outer-systems, especially ones close to fireball planets water’s a rare commodity there However, missions are only worth attempting when you've a larger ship, making the long journey worthwhile. Plan the route well and carry plenty of fuel, avoiding being stranded in a dead system with no chance of retreat.
The easiest way of tracking down the highest prices is checking out planetary information before going concentrate on riarryrng maior imports as higher prices are Enemy ships have greater supremacy when you're approaching a planet. Find the nearest galaxy, utilising Hyperdrive to warp to it. Fly for a short while before warping back to your original system. You now find you can fly closer to your destination before coming under attack again.
Repeat this procedure until you begin your final approach to the planet. However, there’s one potential danger make certain you're carrying plenty of fuel. It’s obviously more worthwhile if you're taking freight or passengers, guaranteeing loads of dosh!
If you're executing a jump into the galaxy with the Spaceport, fly a short distance through the present system first. Doing this makes the distance to travel in the next a lot shorter, enabling you to avoid any ships which may attempt to close in and attack.
Throughout Frontier, transporting certain cargo, including large supplies of arms and nerve gasses, attracts unwelcome attention especially through unruly systems.
Also, carrying over two tons of liquor lures many pirates to your ship. Use a heavily- armed craft if you're hell-bent on taking booze and earning cash.
Keep cargo to a minimum through lawless galaxies the more barren systems raid your ship for absolutely any freight, especially any type of meat or water.
When a superior craft attacks, it's wiser jumping out of the galaxy, returning to complete the mission another time.
If the Auto-Pilot gets destroyed, return to your last saved position and begin again.
Otherwise, you risk being completely stranded with little help through battles and tricky landing procedures.
WUrgilStepjjre PURCHASING SHIPS _i C gBIHli __________ Always check the Shipyards when landing at a Spaceport. In particular, examine the new and used ships section for upgrading your craft. If you see a ship you'd like and have enough cash, buy it straight away it won't be available again at that port for the same price. There's a very fast turnover in ship-trading!
Also be wary the weight of the ship isn't the actual load capacity. You also need to add peripheral items like Auto-Pilot, Lasers and Hyperdrive before you know the real capacity for cargo and passenger cabins.
If you decide to purchase a ship, go to the Fitting Yards and sell every extra item from your previous one, earning a little cash. Then sell it as an empty shell. However, you can't dispose of it if you've passengers on board unload all cargo and people at their required destination before you trade.

¦ These little fiends are a real pain. The only way of telling when they’re in the arena is by looking at the walls and floors. If you see a hole in the wall, immediately check the floor for a dark pressure-pad. Touch it and you launch the arrow.
However, they're easy to avoid in most situations if you remember to cross the piece of floor in the same direction as the arrow. It then follows you down fhe passage, allowing you to side-step it before it hits you. Remember the launchers' locations so you don't run into them when trying to escape from an enemy.
Arena guardians are many and varied. Some are very intelligent and can only be destroyed by shooting them, while others aren't as smart and wander into any traps set up.
¦ Tanks are very similar to Humanoids, though not as astute. It's possible to lead these guys blindly into sneaky traps. The biggest drawback ot having one follow is that, unlike Humanoids, Tanks can chase you across ice-tields.

There are also Choppers flying around the area with the sole aim of destroying you. However, the main objective's finding the entrance to the next zone and the relative safety of the interior.
ENTRANCE TO THE CIVILIAN BUILDING Finding the entrance to the Civilian Building s tricky. From the start, head to the left corner of the landing zone. Pass through the two pipes before heading across the bridge. Move to the tar left, continue across the loading zone and right until you've crossed the next bridge Keep moving right and you find the entrance just past the loading zone.
CIVILIAN CHOPPERS Not only can the Choppers shoot you, as they strafe the ground with their cannons, they also kill on contact. The best tactic's avoiding them, even if it means backtracking to get out of their paths.

The only way of destroying them's standing next to the main body and firing your weapon at the ring You cannot inflict damage by shooting diagonally to the ring only if you shoot it at right angles.
Don't linger in the room with an active Regulator, as it becomes overloaded with power, firing projectiles in all directions.
CRUSH MACHINERY I The Crush-Controls are to the north of the building. Once you've activated them, go as far right as possible. Travel down until you enter the small tunnel. Go to the end, discovering the deck-lift to safety.

One vital lip's running from a fight.
If you're faced with an oncoming alien, and your weapon isn't powerful enough, take flight. It not only saves you energy, it allows another shot.
As soon as you've found enough credits, upgrade your weapon. The one to avold's the Flame- Thrower it really isn't powerful enough to destroy the aliens.
Purchase a remote Tracking-Unit as soon as you can. These are very useful when you're running in circles as they reveal a map of the immediate area, allowing you to plan your route.
The general rule with alien warriors is if it moves, shoot it! All mobile aliens can be destroyed. The wall-guns and j laser- emplacements, however, must be avoided. Keep moving at all times, giving the guns less time to lock onto your ‘ - position.
Use all ammunition sparingly, as it becomes very scarce on later levels, and it's not always im easy finding a terminal and . _.rT-J purchasing extra clips.
Countering alien warriors. Shoot everything crossing your path and go to the right. Never take the central route, as nine times out of ten they're dead-ends.

V- 9flVi ) ¦ FEBI IIIARY 1994 ¦ ami mm EYE OF THE BEHOLDER afljV'J ¦ Due to a slight technical hitch we gt were unable to print the second part of the Eye Of The Beholder solution last month. For all you who've waited so long, here's the second part of Darren Jordan's solution.
Level two This level's filled with skeletons and zombies. If you want to avoid a fight, let your priest turn them, and you can walk past unharmed.
As you enter this level, you're faced with three identical corridors with silver locks. On the ground is only one silver key. First, open the door to the south.
The crossroads you come across spin you 90 degrees to the right each time you cross. At the west fork, the corridor ends in a 'travel' marker.
Step through it. Find the other one and step through that. You enter a room with two zombies. There's no treasure, but it's good experience. Return to the crossroads The south fork comes to a dead-end with a floor panel. When you step on the panel, you hear a stone-grinding sound. Don't worry it's a secret door opening further in the sewer. Return to the crossroads.
The east fork takes you to a small maze of corridors which teleport you around. To avoid them, find the travel' markers on the walls and step through them. This way, you avoid the teleports and can reach the other side. There is a secret door at the end. And here you will find another silver key. Return to the level entrance.
Next, open the door to the east with the silver key entering an area of corridors filled with pits.
Around the walls are various buttons to close them. With one you can see a floor-panel beyond. Throw something over the pit, hitting the panel and closing it. In this area you'll come across another silver key, and hear another stone-grinding noise. The ladder Playing Tips!
Leads down to a room underneath the pits. This is where you end up if you fall down a pit. Down here's a potion. Return to the level entrance.
Now use the third silver key to open the north door. As you step through, you see a corridor on the left that goes nowhere. This corndor opens slowly and is what's making the stone-grinding noises. You come back here later.
Most of the doors in this area appear stuck.
Force them open by clicking on the bottom of the door. If you fail to open it, have a few more goes. If you still fail, rest for a while, then try again. One of the doors can't be forced open so throw a dagger through it. You eventually find more treasure and hear another stone- grinding noise. Go back to the slowly-opening corridor mentioned earlier.
The corridor's now fully open. In the room beyond, you find a stone dagger. It's not a weapon. It's a key for a magic portal found later on in the dungeon.
The door in the bottom-left comer can be opened by throwing a dagger through it. You'll come across an alcove filled with lights. On the wall is the sign RATS' Rapid Action Transport System. This teleport lakes you close to the door to Level Three Don't go through it just yet.
Next, you come to a door, beyond which is a room containing a button and an inscription saying 'ENTRY LEVEL'. This is a lift. To operate it, close the door and press the button. The inscription now reads 'CORRECTION FACILITY'. You come into a room full of prison cells. In each are two skeletons. There's the odd piece of treasure to be had in some of the cells.
In the southern cell, the central brick on one wall opens a secret door. This leads back into the room that's under the pits from earlier on.
Return to the left.
Left again brings you to the DEATH SECTION'. There are a few zombies and a door that needs forcing open. Beyond the door, you find a gold key. This opens the door to Level Three. Return to the lift. Using it again takes you back to the ENTRY LEVEL’.
If you want to move onto the next level quickly, go back to the R.A.T.S, step through it, and go north until you find the door. Put in the key and you're off to Level Three.
If you want to explore a bit further, that's fine.
Going the other way brings you into a maze with wandering zombies.
To the left are a few rooms. To open the first door, place an object on the floor-panel. In the room beyond are two doors Behind each one are undead creatures. You can only open the north door. After the creatures are out of the way, you find a lever and a button The lever opens the other door. The button seems to do nothing, but has opened up a new corridor in the maze, and has changed a few of the walls round. Use your map to avoid getting lost. You can now go down to Level Three.
Level three The creatures on this level are Flinds and Kuotoas. Both can be a bit nasty. The Kuotoas’ first attack is a lightning-type spell. It's best to try to avoid it. Then attack before they do it again.
If you go round to the rooms on the right, you come across corndors of trapped gas. When the computer says you feel dizzy, you have turned around 180 degrees. Just turn back round and carry on.
Going to the left takes you into the rest of the dungeon. First, you come across another
R. A.T.S. If you use it, it telepods you almost to the end of
this level. A good way, if you want, to skip it. But you miss
out on all the fun!
Okay, stop whatever it is you were id | doing and pay attention! The cheats on these pages have to be cut out, so grab I yourself a pair of scissors (make sure that I your parents or guardians are present) and get snipping. Now store them all in a good place so that you can refer to them whenever r you deem it necessary!

Unpause and use N to skip levels.
The corridor after the R.A.T.S has a teleport- Irap and you're teleported back to the end of the corridor. This seems to work only once, so try again. If it does it again, try walking along the corridor backwards or sideways. Once round the corner, search for the button opening a secret room.
At the next junction, go south to the door. In the room beyond are three silver locks. You should have a few silver keys from the last level.
Opening any of them reveals a button. But, you should push the middle button to reveal a secret ' passage. The others aren't very pleasant to you.
On the map on the right is a small room.
Outside is a silver lock. Round the corner is another silver lock. If you open the lock by the door, it opens, but also puts you in the middle of a group of Kuotoas who attack from two sides at the same time. Not nice! Instead, open the silver lock round the corner. It still opens the door, but only subjects you to one Kuotoa.
Eventually you come round to the room with all the drainage holes. To enter, place the gem you should have found, into the square hole.
When you enter, to your right is a floor-panel with a rock. Step on it. This opens and closes some pits. Now carefully walk round the room.
There's only one route for you to take. You come across more lloor-plates. Stand on them.
Basically, if you see a floor-plate, step on it. You eventually work your way round to the treasure.
The floor-plate next to it helps you return to the door.
Next on your map is a square room with a maze beyond it. Both are full of Flinds and Kuotoas. There’s also treasure in there. The room has a teleport area that moves you into another corner of the room. In the maze, you come across a set of human bones. These, too, become another party member at a later date. In the top-left corner of the maze is a T-shaped area. The corridor on the right has a secret door taking you beyond the large room on the map.
The large room on the map’s marked 'MUSEUM' on the wall, and can only be entered from the door on the right, Inside are many monsters. They're not moving. You can walk past them to the other door. You notice there's treasure underneath some of the monsters. To get it, you must kill the monsters. But, if you fight a Flind, all the other Flinds wake up and attack.
The same for the Kuotoas. In the first alcove's a Kuotoa guarding a shield. Killing the Kuotoa may be easy, but once you pick the shield up. All the other monsters wake up and attack. A tip s to work your way to the other door and open it.
Playing iTipS!
This means you won’t be trapped in the room, surrounded by monsters. Then, pick a fight with a Flind or Kuotoa. Once one type of monster's dead, wake the other monsters and kill them.
You may want to rest between fights. The room is now empty and ready for plunder.
Through the final door you find the other end of the R.A.T.S. After the long corridor is the area with alcoves and dead-end branches. The alcoves each contain a pair of eyes, with one eye missing.
The dead-end branches contain blue gems which fit into the empty eye-sockets. Just put all the gems into the sockets. There are several confusing teleports moving you around the corridors. It's annoying, but you can eventually visit all the alcoves after a little patience.
Once all the gems are in place, the north and south alcoves open up into a large room beyond. There's some treasure there and a choice of two ladders down to Level Four.
