Any game, in fact, we reckon is tricky enough to warrant it will receive the Amiga Force treatment. Tips requests for games that you're stuck on will be taken seriously, and tips that YOU send in are particularly welcome!

$ Q If IR BISKS?
A That's right! We're the only Amiga games mag that hasn't got at least one disk taped to the front cover, and there’s a very good reason for this: MONEY! Way over half the stuff that’s bunged onto free' disks
• hese days is rarely looked at what's the plunge to carry any
able to keep Cl.95 a HOW IFS BON!
¦ Every Amiga game released is sent to our office, and eagerly loaded. After a good blast, we all sit down and discuss the various pros and cons. If the general consensus is good, we'll go ahead and review the game. But if we reckon it’s appalling, we won’t devote any space to it. After all, noene wants to read reams and reams about ndibishy games. Basically, if we haven’t covered it think very carefully before you buy... BYE Byi,v, EBB NOW!

May The Force Be With You!
Steve Shields Editor ¦ Staff Writer Ian Osborne’s biggest claim to I fame is that he I once slood on the same escalator as Nanette Newman in British Homestores.
Not much to brag about, we know, but he maintains that the memory always gives him a warm glow, so who are we to argue?
A dedicated adventure roleplaying butt, Ian’s philosophy in life is simple: examine everything and, it that doesn’t work, roll a dice at it! Oh, and contrary to popular belief, Ian wouldn't be seen dead in an anorak (he prefers to wear it while he’s still alive!).
¦ Affectionately known as Corky to his friends and called a whole lot worse by his enemies!
Mark is one of the longest-serving members of Europress Impact. Some say the offices were built around him. While other, less kind individuals reckon the building should be brought down on top of him! A huge shoot- 'em-up fan, Corky's into games which provide a bit of blood 'n’ thunder in his otherwise remarkably dull existence.
¦ With an ego the size of a small galaxy (and a bank balance to match). Mark is responsible for designing Amiga Force. Almost obscenely talented in all aspects of design, it's just a pity his dress sense doesn't reflect the fact. Head- over Cuban heels in love with all things American, Mark's big dream is to wake up and discover his mom bakes the best apple pie on the block, his pa’s become a redneck and the house has miraculously mutated into a condo! Sad, isn’t it?

Rumours about enhanced computer-controlled goalkeepers have reached our ears, too. Hopefully this new, tweaked version of the game will incorporate new, more intelligent net-men our only real criticism of the original was that the keepers would occasionally let the side down badly by failing to pick up the ball. For further information about this, or any other Renegade product, write to: Renegade, Unit C1L, Metropolitan • Wharf, Wapping Wall, London E1 9SS.
THE ART OF BART a belated April Fool. Once again Cheetah are inflicting yet more ridiculously pointless joysticks on the gaming public, this time using character licences as a selling point.
As well as the awful Bart Simpson effort, Cheetah also scooped the rights to Batman Returns, Alien 3 and Terminator 2 expensive and pointless licences that are reflected in the £12.99 price tags. A Cheetah spokesperson described the concept as ‘possibly the biggest ever tie-up in film-licensing and video-game- hardware history... a truly new product concept.’ Bart Simpson joysticks? I’d rather eat my shorts!
One of the AMIGA FORCE crew's favourite games of all time has just received an overhaul. Renegade Software have listened carefully to footie fans' comments about their chart- topping hit, Sensible Soccer, and decided to incorporate the suggested changes.
A special 1.1 version of the game, which features clubs and players currently performing in the 1992-3 season, is hitting the shelves about now... but Sensible Soccer fanatics would be (football?) Mad to rush out and buy it. Instead, devotees who already own the game are offered a special deal whereby they mail off their original version, along with just £3.95 (+ p&p) and they'll receive not only the updated version, but their own copy back to boot!
It takes two to turbo!
As well as seeing their favourite Amiga games in sharper detail, purchasers of the CM8833 II will receive Gremlin's excellent Lotus Turbo Challenge 2. Given away free with every monitor from now till the end of January, owners of the game needn't feel too hard done by: for only £5 they can exchange their freebie Lotus 2 for the soon- to-be-released Final Challenge Lotus 3.
Still not satisfied? Then why not enter their exclusive competition too? First prize is a helicopter trip for two to the 1993 British Grand Prix at SilVERSIONe, where a pair of grandstand seats await as well as an introduction to 'a famous Formula One personality' (let’s just hope it's not Murray Walker).
For further information about this, or any other Philips products, contact Philips direct on: 081 689 4444.
And hardware manufacturers are taking their places on the commercial starting-grid.
In pole position on the monitor front we find Philips Consumer Electronics who, it has to be said, have a rip-roaring, tyre-screeching, turbo-thrusting (I’m going to put my foot down in a minute; get on with it! Ed) offer for the festive season... Not only have they slashed a huge £100 off the price of their CM8833 II colour monitor (ensuring they’re the first to break the £200 price barrier it’ll now be retailing for a reasonable £199.99!), they've also struck a deal with Gremlin Software which will see them giving away some top gear!
You any idea what we're talking about? No? Then Bruce Smith Books Ltd may have the answers!
Mastering Amiga Workbench 2 is the latest additional to the BSB book range, and deals exclusively with the updated Workbench. Written with complete novices in mind, the volume takes users through the intricate world of Workbench with little fuss. Equally well suited to beginners or upgraders alike, this is a vital purchase for anyone struggling to get to grips with their machine.
Just DOSing around From relatively simple functions (such as learning how to use the menus and copy files), to advanced procedures like getting to grips with AmigaDOS and Graphics Printing, MAW2sets everything out in a clear, concise, easy-to-understand fashion. Weighing in at a hefty 328 pages, it’ll ring the cash register bell at £19.95.

' It’s the run-up to Christmas, once again, i THE RACE FOXING CLEVER!
French software giants Titus are taking the budget market by storm as their new label Fox Hits explodes onto the scene! Launched late last month, 12 releases are planned between now and November. These are Crazy Cars 2, Fire And Forget 1 & 2, Wild Streets, Arachnophobia, Off Shore Warrior, Dick Tracy, Duck Tales, Galactic Conqueror, Prehistorik, Knight Force and Dark Century.
As yet, all titles are rereleases, though Titus are considering splashing out on originals. Whatever they decide, the games cost a mere £9.99 well worth hunting down!
Is the latest car racing game driving you round the bend? Then help could be at both hands from Logic 3, joystick manufacturers extraordinaire!
On its way to a shop near you is the new Freewheel controller. As you can see from the picture, the Freewheel is shaped like a car steering wheel, with the addition of two thumb buttons conveniently located on the inner part of the ring. Plugging straight into your joystick port, the wheel incorporates a number of microswitches which respond to left right rotational movements, as well as forward backward tilting making it ideal for flight simulators also.
Awaiting test drive We haven’t received the actual device yet (although we re assured one is winging its way to us), so how well it performs has still to be tested. Try it out in the shop before you buy would be our advice, then, and don’t forget to check your mirrors!
For further information about this, or any Logic 3 products, contact super-stockists Spectra Video at: Unit 27, Northfield Industrial Estate, Beresford Ave, Wembley, Middlesex HAO 1NU.

First there was Band Aid; that dreadful racket that raised a fortune for famine relief. Then came Live Aid, which saw everyone who was anyone (and a few who never were!) Tripping the light fantastic in a marathon gig to end ’em all. For the more athletically minded there was Sport Aid, and now there’s Comic Relief, an ongoing spectacular where everyone can (and should) do their bit for the Third World.
To coincide with the March ’93 event Ocean Software are releasing Sleepwalker, a game in which you must guide your somnambulating buddy through a construction site, jungle, zoo, graveyard and all manner of dark and dangerous places. To prevent your chum waking, you must set off traps yourself! Walk over' those tacks, detonate that dynamite, stick your fingers in a plug socket painful, but true!
Needless to say if the sleepwalker hits a trap he’ll get a rude awakening.
Every link in the software chain will make a donation (distributors, retailers, us!) But no- one’s expected to make a loss. We'll bring you more news as it’s made, so slap on that red nose and stonk!
Commodore recently unveiled their latest offerings tor budding Amigamaniacs everywhere with some great new A600 packs.
The Wild, The Weird And The Wicked is aimed at groovy game-freaks everywhere, and features Deluxe Paint 3 (has anyone actually bought that program, or did everyone get it with their Amigas? Just a thought). MicroProse’s brilliant Formula One Grand Prix, Ocean s Pushover and System 3 s forthcoming Silly Putty.
Great stuff, eh? Certainly better than potential Hard Drivers get from the somewhat patchy Epic HD pack.
Millennium s Pome is great and System 3‘s Myth has its followers, but why did they include overpriced, overhyped tosh like Epic? Trivial Pursuit is a curious addition, too. Okay, so it s a good program, but you’d be far better off with the board game. The ubiquitous Deluxe Paint 3 is also here.
The Wild, The Weird And The Wicked sets you back a cool £349. While the Epic HD offering costs £499. They’ve certainly got Atari worried they’ve just slashed the price of the beleaguered ST to a minuscule £249. They’ll be giving it away in cornflake packets next!
I=M *1 IALL ABOUT ITS curse of 1 IBBSnaM 1L3M117BIB I Trademinds Tfbuse, Wifi Ashbourne Road, Derby, DK2 335. Telephone (0332) 297797 facsimile (03327 381511 ing 'a driving sim is an even more precarious business than looking for a second-hand car.
There are a lot of dodgy motors going around, so to make sure you don't buy a banger, PHIL KING test-drives Hie very best racers on the Amiga road. K it ain't here, it ain't worffi bothering with.
[APB I Domark Not a racer at all, this has you driving round the scrolling- overhead- view town in a cop car.
Arrest the daily quota of petty offenders and you're given a proper pursuit job, scouring the streets for a major criminal. These take a bit of finding, and are only arrested by repeatedly smashing into their vehicle, Chase HO style. Back at the station there's a hilarious interrogation sequence where you waggle the joystick to shake a confession out of your captive!
The programming is mediocre with sluggish, ropey scrolling, a washed-out colour scheme and dull soundtrack. The fact that it’s still a good game is a testament to the gameplay quality of the Tengen coin-op.
Don't prepare to be dazzled, but get ready for some compulsive crim-catching.
OVERAL ROOM I Lankhor Ubi Soft f rrectaciilar speed makes this wone a real thriller. The sprite- based 3-D is possibly the fastest ever, with a very smooth update.
In addition to a training mode and modem-link two-player option, there are two distinct ways of playing the game. The Arcade mode involves passing a set number of cars, Super Monaco style, to qualify for the next circuit.
On the other hand, the Race mode is a World Championship tour with points awarded for the top six places in each race.
The superfast race action is hectic. Collision with roadside objects or other cars costs precious seconds and can cause damage. This is rectified by a pit stop, as is excessive tyre wear.
As a serious sim Vroom can't compare to the likes of Formula One Grand Prix. But for no- nonsense arcade-style driving it’s a top contender.
CRAZY CARS 3 ¦ Titus The first two Crazy Cars games were mediocre, but it’s a case of third time lucky. The superfast, undulating 3-D is very reminiscent of the Lotus games. It’s this immense speed which provides the thrills as you weave through the considerable amount of traffic. Smashing into other cars, or roadside objects, causes you speed- reducing damage costing you dosh for repairs in the garage between races.
Other cars are mainly there just to get in the way, but in most races you compete against up to three rivals. Beat these and not only do you win the top prize money, but you collect on any side bets laid with them (via a neat poker-style bidding scene).
It’s not nearly as easy as it sounds though the higher the prize money, the higher the race entry fee. And car add-ons like turbos, better tyres and higher top speed cost an absolute fortune. Perhaps the most useful, and affordable, extra is the radar for detecting police speed traps.
Although being chased by a cop car is the ultimate thrill, getting caught results in a huge fine. One dirty trick is to bump another driver into the cops, so they chase him instead!
Individual races are enjoyable, and compulsion is enhanced by the long-term challenge of a four-division driving championship. The only thing missing is a two-player mode, and this is where the similar Lotus 2 has the edge.
INDY HEAT | I Storm Strangely, this sequel to Super Off Road removes the bumpy dirt tracks and goes back to its primitive Supersprint roots. It's still a very playable game though, with the classic bird's-eye-view, singlescreen racing proving addictive.
As usual, the tour car sprites are tiny, but they zip around at a fair rate. In tact, using nitro-boosts is only recommended on long straights, unless you want to slam into the scenery. Hitting objects or other cars causes damage which must be repaired in the pits.
Refuelling also occurs here so, as in Lotus Esprit, you often risk running out of gas by leaving the pits early. As if there isn't enough bumping and barging on the track, dirty tricks include knocking opponents out of their pit lane, and even running over their crews!
As the 10-race season progresses, the cars can be souped up by spending collected spanners on nitros, engine, tyres, speedier crew etc. It's classic, hectic racing, particularly with three players.
; OVERALL 84% FORMULA ONE GRAND PRIX ¦ MicroPros* Geoff Crammond’s comprehensive Formula One sim picks up where Ferrari left off. Every aspect of your car’s setup (gear ratios, wings, tyres etc) can be altered to suit each of 16 international circuits. Advice is given in the superlative manual, which also includes track maps and oodles of background information on the circuits and teams it's fascinating reading.
On-screen presentation is no less impressive, with plenty of attractive static screens and a stunning action replay mode, incorporating a host of camera angles to view the action. This is portrayed in glorious 3-D: fast, accurate and with incredibly detailed scenery zooming round Monaco is an experience to relish. The cars are also very well drawn with bits flying off when they crash a pity their engines sound like electric drills!
The most useful option for beginners and perhaps the game's most impressive aspect is the choice of how much you want to control. Not only can you have automatic gears, but also auto-braking and even the best racing line shown as a dotted line on the track.
These 'tutorial' options (plus the manual’s excellent 'driving techniques’ guide) are perfect for getting to grips with the car, so with a bit of practice you’re soon zooming around like a pro.
To do well in the World Championship, though, you need to do more than fast lap times. Dealing with traffic takes real expertise, especially on narrow, tortuous tracks. Overtaking the intelligent computer cars is a difficult task even lapping backmarkers can be tricky. And for once, qualifying sessions are complicated by the realistic inclusion of other cars arggghl, how does Mansell keep so cool?!
Due to the incredible amount of detailed realism throughout this epic of a game, there's a fair bit of shuffling between the four (I) disks (a second drive is definitely recommended). However, this minor annoyance is a price well worth paying for what is undoubtedly the greatest motor-racing simulation ever created.
OVERALL 98% FORMULA !©ne | I Electronic Arts This detailed simulation of Formula One racing even gives you access to Ferrari's Fiorano test track (with split-time I sensors), dyno room and wind tunnel.
I These are used to test the efficiency of your [ car adjustments. Virtually every aspect of your Ferrari can be altered: tyres changed, | engine tuned, aerofoils raised lowered, gear ratios and suspension adjusted, etc. The presentation for this is excellent: just drag the cursor over each part of your car to bring up the relevant settings menu.
As racing fans know, there isn't just a universal optimum setup adjustments are required to suit each of the 16 Grand Prix ! Circuits. Even then, the best setup for qualifying sessions will be vastly different i from in the race, where fuel is strictly limited and tyres must last longer.
The tactical side of the game is so strong that you can choose just to manage the team, letting the computer drive for you. But for budding Mansells, the 3-D race section isn't bad, considering the game's four-year age. Control is via mouse only, and pretty sensitive too. Though this can prove frustrating at first, with practice it enables subtle drifting. If you're out for total realism, you can even race the authentic number of laps, with races lasting up to two hours realtime!
In the arcade stakes, Ferrari is left on the grid by such superfast thrillers as Lotus, but as a tactical sim it still finishes in the points.
¦ Gremlin Not only is this a technically excellent 3- D racer, it’s also one of the best two- player games ever... Weaving through the intelligent computer traffic, you can see your opponent in the distance. As he bumps into the rear of a computer car, you put your foot down and get ready to zoom past. Swerving one way then the other, you attempt a Mansell-style overtaking manoeuvre, but at the last moment he spots you and baulks your move. You ram into his backside, and slow to a snail's pace.
WUdlshAlJlaK' It’s a furious contest all the way, especially with rocks and oil patches on the track. Then there’s the gamble of taking as short a refuelling pit-stop as possible, risking running out of gas if you misjudge the amount needed to complete the race.
As in the sequel, the undulating tracks are impressive for their graphical detail and supersonic speed, especially considering the split-screen effect. The superlative presentation is completed by some neat blueprint intro screens and four thumping rock tunes plus meaty engine FX.
Lotus not only looks dead flash, under its bonnet purrs a finely tuned monster of a gameplay engine.
OVERALL 96% ¦ Virgin Believe it or not, this game's lastability is even longer than its mouthful of a title. The Leland arcade classic has been perfectly converted by the veteran Graftgold programming team.
Four tiny cars speed around the eight bumpy dirt tracks, splashing through water pools and leaping over ramps. As in the coin-op, up to three players can take part, one using the keys which is actually an advantage with the simple rotational controls.
The racing's tough, but if you’re far behind, a few quick nitro-boosts help you catch the leaders. Nitros, and more permanent car improvements, are bought in the interievel shop paid for by money bags collected on the track. And you need all those power-ups to beat the great 'Iron Man’ himself watch out for him speeding up towards the end of races.
With better graphics, an extra player and more hectic racing than its sequel Indy Heat, this is the superaddictive speed-king of Supersprint variants.
OVERALL 88% ¦ US Gold t’s not quite a top-notch conversion of the classic coin-op, but still a compulsive cruise across America. Your Ferrari F40 packs a massive engine, and the 3-D scenery whizzes past even faster (if a tad jerkily) with the turbo activated. 16 frantic stages take you through a coast-to-coast tour of America, dodging thick traffic and outrunning the cops. Regular checkpoints must be reached within strict time limits, or it’s game over. Furthermore if you’re overtaken by the Porsche driver, he nicks your fickle girlfriend! Every fourth stage, you get to upgrade your car’s
engine, tyres or turbo.
Although technically far surpassed by many newer racers, this oldie retains the feel and playability of the classic coin-op.
¦ Gremlin The big question was how could the original Lotus be improved upon. The answer is, it couldn't. Instead, this 'sequel' drives off at a tangent. There's still the split-screen view, undulating 3-D and simultaneous two-player mode (or three four players with two linked Amigasl). But this time, rather than racing around circuits, the action is much more like Turbo Out Run. Checkpoints must be reached within strict time limits, otherwise it’s game over.
Though this decreases the competitive two-player thrills slightly, the superfast 3-D makes Lotus 2 an exhilarating arcade experience. Graphical variety is much improved over the original with eight vastly different stages, and this adds to the gameplay with such features as logs to jump, night-time racing, ice patches and even juggernauts crossing the road!
It's a completely different kettle of fish to its predecessor (the whole screen is used in one-player mode), but the same technical excellence and compulsive playability make Lotus 2 the best 'checkpoint' racer around.
¦ MlcroStyle Another Geoff Crammond masterpiece, this is far removed from the realism of Formula One Grand Prix. Here the action takes place on rollercoaster-style tracks, complete with incredibly steep hills, ramps and huge gaps to jump.
Performing huge leaps and nitro-boosting round banked bends is a stomach-churning experience, and it’s all too easy to veer off the side as you race to the limit against a solitary computer driver. You then suffer the ignominy of being hoisted back onto the track by a huge crane, and watching your opponent zoom into the distance.
Whether you’re far behind or way ahead, there's always the incentive to go for the fastest lap to earn an extra championship point. There are four divisions of three drivers and two tracks each, with promotions relegations at the end of the season.
It’s a tough challenge to rise through the ranks, but the emphasis is on fantastic fun there’s nothing quite like just making it across a huge ravine! Fast 3-D ensures an exhilarating experience, though the drill-like engine noises irritate.
Presentation is excellent with options to practise all the tracks, enter an eight-driver league, play head-to-head against a real-life opponent via modem cable, and save position and lap records to disk. It all adds up to a supremely playable racer with a unique, refreshing style.
OVERALL 94% 5UPE iMS II | I Gremlin A great improvement on the original Supercars, this souped-up sequel incorporates a split-screen two-player mode. The scrolling overhead- view races are hectic as hell with bump-'n'-barge tactics employed by all. But even Ayrton Senna would draw the line at firing missiles at his rivals! Take enough damage and your car explodes, costing precious seconds to be replaced on the track. You’re also dealt a whopping repair bill after the race.
Money for repairs, weapons and car improvements is earned from finishing in the top five (fail and you’re disqualified anyway) and also from sponsorship. The latter is decided by your responses on just one of many (optional) conversation scenes. You also get to talk to a Policeman, Journalist, Solicitor, etc, to earn lose money or championship points.
This ongoing drama of financing your racing adds extra spice to the longterm challenge of the championship, as does the tactical use of weapons.
Most of all though, it’s a hell of a lot of skiddin', slammin’ fun!
OVERALL 87% mt Psygnosis Up to three players can compete in this slick variation on the Hot Rod (Sega coin-op) theme. Four-car races take place on overhead-view scrolling tracks. If a car gets left behind by the scroll it's repositioned further down the track, losing some fuel in the process. Gas is the name of the game run out and it's game over.
Extra fuel can be collected en route, as can nitros and cash to spend in the interlevel shop. As well as upgrading tyres, acceleration etc, you can even change your car type (sports, buggy or Formula 1) to suit the current terrain. Each of 32 races takes place on roads or cross-country. It’s a bit of a mystery tour, with the route only shown by a few arrows. Night races are especially confusing (you can even pick up a dark bulb to turn off your opponents’ headlights!) you’re recommended to follow the other cars round most of the way, and try to get past just before the finish.
Though the even-paced action never really gets the pulse rate rocketing, it’s an enjoyable solo challenge. Multi-player games are more fun, with cut-throat competitiveness and a mad dash for the bonuses.
OVERALL 79% JAGUAR . XJ22 o | ¦ Core 1“ t doesn't quite live up to its illustrious name, but Jaguai1 s a highly polished game nonetheless.
Ironically it’s very much in the Lotus style, with split-screen two-player racing and easy car handling you can go full throttle round most bends.
There’s even a similar CD-style selection for the soundtrack.
The 3-D moves at a fair old rate too (though not quite as fast as the real thing!), with varied scenery for 36 worldwide races. Particularly effective are the weather conditions, such as fog, rain, snow and sandstorms.
However, even with your view partially obscured by such | distractions, it's not that tough to beat ! The computer drivers and win top prize money (awarded for the first six places). Cash is essential to pay the air fare to the next international venue, and repair your car.
Presentation for the latter is very slick, with the facility to view the Jag from three angles.
The only slight flaw is that it's fairly easy to amass a lot of money, detracting from the challenge of a full season. Individual races are still a lot of fun though, especially with two players.

SflSS 11 D ¦¦ ' IBB!
LEAGUE TRBLE ARSENAL A ¦ Thalamus, £25.99 Football games come and football games go, but only the very best make it to the Amiga Force League Premier Division.
Renegade’s Sensible Soccer's top of the table and looks damn- near invincible, but this could all change with the release of Arsenal by Thalamus. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we called Arsenal supremo George Graham... Brring brring, brring brring 'Hello, Highbury'... 'Hello, George! George that is you, innit George?'
'Yes it’s me, George Graham. Who am I speaking to?'
I Up the 'ammers!
I Slick options screens and plenty of options are I typical of a top-notch Thalamus 1 release... 'It's Amiga Force magazine! We want to ask you about Arsenal, the computer game.'
What? Why should I bloody know about it? I run a football club, not a software company!'
But what about the horizontally scrolling pitch, George? I hear it runs at an incredible 50Hz?’ 'I don’t Weedin' know! Look, ask me about Saturday's game. . .'
And what about the digitised pictures of the players, George?
They’re only stills, but I bet they move faster than the Arsenal boys!
Ha ha ha!'
'Very smeggin' funny! Now stop waffling bout that bloody game or get off my phone!'
And what about the match commentary, George? And... George? Are you there George?...' Oh well, we asked the president of the Woolwich Train Spotters And Stamp Collectors Club for his opinion. I've got mixed feelings about it,' he said. I hate those nasty, horrible arcade games but I might make an exception if the management element's good. I don't know whether I'll buy it yet money's short, and I need a new anorak.’ WAXWORKS ¦ Accolade, £34.99 Waxworks are creepy places at the best of times, and in the next Accolade release you get to explore one, searching for your missing brother Alex. The
building was owned by your S recently deceased Unde Boris, who spent years creating his collection of wax dummies. All of them are either dark, treacherous beings from his imagination, or characters from horror films. Your first temptation is to destroy the waxworks, but something draws you to the old Victorian building in which they're housed.
Before you know it you're enticed into a dark, shadowy world where the wax figures come to life. You discover that Alex is somewhere in this strange scene, so you set out to rescue him.
There are five worlds to explore, including ancient Egypt, 19th century England, a musty mine shaft and a haunted cemetery. The game's completely icon-driven, and a first- person perspective means you’ll have plenty of chances to meet horrid creatures face to face. Programmed by Horrorsoft.
The team who brought Elvira: Mistress Of The Dark and Elvira II, Waxworks opens its doors in November.
DARKMERE ¦ Core Design, £34.99 ¦ Eat steel, you spawn of evil! This is a mock-up screen depicting a typical combat encounter.
We have only seen static screens of the game so far, but each and every one just screams ‘quality’.
Long ago, a young Elf warrior named Gildorn performed many brave and daring feats. One of the most difficult was the slaying of a giant Dragon called Enywas, who was terrorising a human village. Although for this act Gildorn was banished from his own race, he became King of the grateful village and married a beautiful Elf woman named Berengaria. They had a child named Ebryn, but soon afterwards Berengaria disappeared, never to be seen again. Gildorn searched in vain for his beloved bride, but he soon became a morose and broken Elf.
This gnarly geezer on the left is actually your dear old dad, who can be called upon to give advice and guidance during the game. We’d strongly suggest you try to stay in his good books!
So much so, he allowed thieves and cut-throats to terrorise the village, while in the surrounding forests a horde of Ores planned mischief. Gildorn realised his mistake and sent his by-now-fully-grown son out to battle the forces of darkness, armed only with Gildorn's enchanted sword. Ebryn’s task, therefore, is to hack the enemy hordes to ribbons, and thus end the Curse of Darkmere.
A 3-D isometric adventure, Darkmere is split into three main levels: the village, forest and Ore cavern (each level is split into a wide variety of locations). There are plenty of characters to interact with (or hack apart), so it's not all ‘kill anything that moves’ fun. Find out if Ebryn can save the day when Darkmere appears in October.
¦ (Below) The Amiga Force Editor arrives for work on Moday morning... and is welcomed by the Publisher, (right) Atmospheric graphics and a user-friendly icon system look set to make Waxworks another sure-fire winner for Accolade.
A misleadingly innocent-looking old waxworks (left) holds deadly secrets galore. Can you rescue your long-lost twin before the assorted ghouls and ghosts get the better of you? Just follow the yellow brick dirt-track to find out!
ISSUE ONE AUTUMN 1992 AF ¦ Accolade, £24.99 Original concepts ahoy! Or maybe not. The latest in a long line of puzzlers, Zyconix involves the novel concept of positioning falling blocks to form lines of the same colour which then disappear. This prevents the screen filling up when chockablock, it's game over.
¦ Like an off-colour Sonic Hedgehog, Tearaway Thomas zips around the scrolling screens at very high speeds... indeed!
It’s a blindingly original idea, as you can see from the screenshots. Oh well, if it plays anything like those other compulsive puzzlers (to which are it bears absolutely no resemblance whatsoever!), you'll be doing more lines than you ever did at school.
To prolong appeal even further there are four different game modes (named after characters), all of which permit one or two players (with split screen). Louis' is the basic game, while in Dazza's each player starts with a pre-built block remove it to enter a bonus level. Spry's game allows the player ten blocks to complete a line, or else an indestructible line appears at the bottom of the screen. In two-player mode, the first player to complete a line passes the indestructible one to his opponent! Finally, Shazza's game is a straight race against the clock.
In all modes, matters are complicated by special items which help or hinder: mines, spikes, disintegrators, transparent blocks etc. There's also the usual array of difficulty levels, so novices and experts alike should find Zyconix a treat when it drops onto the screen in November.
¦ Soundware, £25.99 The Sega consoles have Sonic The Hedgehog, and the Amiga will very soon be visited by another fast-moving creature.
Tearaway Thomas is obviously inspired by a certain speedy hedgehog, and will be hitting the shops in October (the programmers are completing the game as we speak). It's a multilevel platform game (the number has yet to be decided) that sees Thomas whizzing around scrolling screens, collecting various coloured gems within a very tight time limit and finally reaching an exit.
Of course as this is a platform romp, there are plenty of objects for the athletic hero to jump on, spring from and fly off. Evil creatures can be leapt over with ease, but if Thomas hits them he's stunned for a short while.
Watch out for hidden gems and bonuses, and teleporters which whisk Thomas off to strange new worlds to collect loadsa goodies.
Get ready for the speedy new star of the computer world as he hits an Amiga near you soon.
Inside the castle, Thomas must avoid the spooks and collect tenough gems.
UWUUUIuu ¦ Not ‘just another Tetris clone', Zyconics offers four different styles of play, in one or two- player mode. Thwart your opponent or go for glory first.
Numbered caves peppering the various platforms, and carry him or her to the cave chosen. Do it fast enough and you’ll get a tip, but be careful hit the ground too hard and you’re in trouble!
You need to transport a set number of bods to get on to the next level, but be quick about it running a chopper on pure pedal power's blimmin’ tiring, and if you run out of energy before you reach your quota you’ll come to grief. Energy can be replenished by dropping a huge boulder on a tree and eating the fruit that falls from its branches, but you can only do this once on each level.
To help Fyou flash your 'cash in the right!
Directions, here's a roundup of the best new releases on the market tany of which arei kworth shelling out for... ¦ As a troglodytic taxi driver (flyer?) Your mission is to deliver your cave-dwelling comrades from one stoney abode to another. Their vocabularies are very limited, so you won’t get bored en route!
Careful not to land on top of your passengers too!
¦ Playbyte, £25.99 As game names go, this one lakes the biscuit UGH! Sounds more like something you hear in an Indian restaurant lawy than a classy computer game!
Can you imagine going into a software shop and asking for UGH!? The shopkeeper would call the men in white coats! Hopefully Playbyte won’t lose sales over it though, because it’s really rather good.
You play a prehistoric caveman who runs a taxi service from his stone-age helicopter (don’t you just love it already?). Being a pedal- powered prehistoric model your chopper doesn't hover too well the heart of the game is learning to fight the effects of gravity and inertia.
Each level is played on a static screen where you must collect stone-age citizens from the As you progress through the game you’ll come up against all manner of tricks and traps. Some caves are unreachable without taking a dip hit the water from a great height to reach the required depth, then swing it under the obstruction. Later still you'll be battling marauding dinosaurs and racing rising water levels. Although your taxi's amphibious, it doesn't handle too well under water and keeps bobbing to the surface, so it's best to complete the stage before the cave's submerged.
Each screen has its own password so you won’t get bored of the early levels (unless you really want to).
UGH!s an undeniably addictive game, and some of the presentation effects are dead snazzy. The water is particularly good it's a pity the screenshots can't show the ripples. And the way the get ready' signal is printed on a log which falls into the drink and floats away has to be seen to be believed.
Absence. When the chopper or its passenger hits the water, there's no splash. Land too hard and you just bounce off the screen intact falling to pieces on the spot would look much better. Worst of all, if you hit a platform when flying, exactly the same thing happens, missing a real opportunity for some digitised destruction.
At the end of the day UGH! Is a great game, but with a little more thought it could be even better. Try before you buy, but there's every chance it'll grab you by the throat and refuse to let go.

This makes life very difficult for the reviewer: how do you write a review that doesn't sound more like an indictment than a buying recommendation? At the end of the day it’s up to the reader to decide if its strengths outweigh its weaknesses, but let's get this straight right now overall, Fascination is NOT a bad game.
The first thing you notice is the interactive character's a WOMAN! Highly unusual, but make no mistake this isn’t a right-on attempt ¦ Kingsoft DMI, £25.99 ¦ ¦¦e've all heard about computer viruses and the harm they can do. In Bug Bomber, trouble with a capital T strikes when a band ot bugs' invade an important computer.
¦ V This paralyses it, but help is at hand as you and up to three pals become debuggers.
Pre-game options are abundant, even incorporating two completely different game modes: Versus Computer has all the players cooperating to destroy computer-controlled bugs, while Versus Opponent is a sort of demolition derby between the players. Other options include the number of computer enemies, computer IQ and number of games needed to win.
The playing area is a large square split into 165 smaller ones, and life is at first peaceful. But it soon becomes hectic as other players and computer-controlled characters enter the tray. By moving the joystick in one of the four compass directions, various weapons and items can be accessed: Blocks, Bombs, Mines, Thunderbolts and Eggs. The laying of eggs takes precious energy, but they hatch into various deadly drones (Painters, Crunchers, Hunters and Killers) or energy. The last item's certainly needed when the enemy hordes attack, as loss of energy reduces the speed of your character's
movement. This is annoying, especially if you're being chased by enemy forces or you've just planted a bomb.
Energy conservation is the key to succeeding in Bug Bomber. To help you out, there are plenty of energy and IQ icons lying around. The latter are important for boosting the intelligence of your drones: they start life with the equivalent brain-power of your current IQ level.
Bug Bomber's one of those games that doesn't look too good at first sight, but proves incredibly compulsive. Good fun played solo, it really comes into its own with more than one player. This is particularly true in Opponent mode, when it becomes a frantic, strategic contest to the death! The variety of things you can do means success can be achieved using many different tactics though one thing you'll always need is a ruthless streak!
¦ It’s not much to look at, we know, but Bug Bomber does offer one hell of a lot to do. One to four players can compete... or even co-operate.

delectable Doralice - now you too could have a body like hers;
just make sure you take good care of it on Miami’s mean
streets... to redress the gender imbalance in computer games,
just an excuse for cheap sexism. The user manual describes her
as 'the sexiest captain on the Paris-Miami flight’.
Her goal is to find a dangerous aphrodisiac and take it to a company president, and worst of all while she takes a (gratuitous) shower you watch a graphic routine that has no effect on the game whatsoever! Is it any wonder that the overwhelming majority of gamers are male when game designers seem incapable of portraying a female without becoming preoccupied with her sexuality?
The second major malfunction is the puzzles they range from the devastatingly easy to the ridiculously obscure. For example, before you leave the first location you must hide the aphrodisiac. Several places are available, but finding the right one is pure guesswork! This isn't difficult you'll find the right place eventually through trial and error, but it's hardly good adventuring.
Thirdly, the game design is frustratingly linear, and never lets you forget you're playing a computer game. You can't explore xLest captain on the Paris- suspense? UeLl you're Lc Lous ueohend u Lth rne ... ye 're ready for tabeoff !
Your world to any degree: you can't leave most locations until you've solved the necessary problem, even when there's no logical reason why you shouldn't. Also the manual guides you through the game like Anneka Rice leads Treasure Hunt contestants, limiting still further your freedom to explore.
This intro screen (left) reflects the graphical quality which is evident in every screen of the game.
You'll have to buy it to see the shower scenes, iihouqh!
With so much going against it Fascination must be a complete disaster, right? Well, no it's got a lot going for it too! The graphics are clear and crisp, the user interface is dead simple to get to grips with, and for all its faults it has a certain endearing quality. At a tenner it would be ideal for the inexperienced adventurer (or voyeur?), but at thirty quid? Not a bad game, but think carefully before you buy.
» ‘ 9 • W r T| 1 Wilt ft :---- X o ¦ Ice, £25.99 We've all heard of the elite fighting forces such as Delta Force.
Navy SEALs and the Green Berets. Now a member of another hard-assed group is being sent into some of the worst hell-holes in the world... if you want to take up the challenge, that is!
You play an operative of Fireforce. And it s your job to succeed where the regular army have failed. The game starts with you filling in the duty roster: just sign on the dotted line. Then head for the Deployment screen, where you can choose the mission type (there are 12 on offer), get a description of the current mission, start and rendezvous times and the rendezvous point (write it down if you can't remember it).
You're also given the choice to revisit the roster, begin the mission or visit the armoury. There's some real ass-kicking ordnance available but you're limited to a maximum equipment weight of 26 (any more and the character would probably keel over). The weapons are certainly impressive: you've a choice of M72 LAW Rocket Launcher. M177 Carbine. AK-47 Assault Rifle.
M60 Machine Gun. M16 8 M203 Grenade Launcher and HSK MP5. Other equipment includes M16, MP5 8 AK-47 ammo. M60 belts. M26 8 M203 grenades. C4 explosives and field-dressing packs (essential after a fire fight).
As mentioned before, our hero only has a short amount of time to complete each mission (generally 15 minutes), and return to the rendezvous point. So once he's dropped from the helicopter, go for it. Of course there are enemy soldiers out to stop you. But a lead sandwich is an excellent argument-stopper.
If a stray bullet strikes your frail body, a chunk of energy is lost (first-aid packs replenish it). Dead bodies should be searched, as very often there's equipment to be scavenged. A small tip here: on the armoury screen you should grab the Kalashnikov AK-47 Assault Rifle, for the first couple of missions at least. This is because most of the enemy weapons are of Russian manufacture (AK-47s no less), so there are no problems with restocking ammo (clever eh?).
Each mission has a different goal. Most involve either terminating an important enemy target or blowing up buildings (great fun). It's best to know " w’ia’ You ,e dealing with _-____ on each mission, so you

¦ Europress Software, £25.99 Originality isn't always required tor a good game, as Dojo Dan proves... well, not quite.
There are plenty ol borrowed' gameplay ideas here. The most obvious similarity is with the excellent First Samurai. But while Dan can perform athletic martial-arts leaps, kicks and punches during his epic arcade adventure, he's a much more cute-looking chap.
This mirrors the slick cartoonesque style used throughout the game, with some cherubic baddies looking almost too sweet to kill. Bashing 'em reveals yin-yang symbols, providing Dan with much-needed extra energy. If he runs out, he loses a life and is plonked back at the start of the level arrrrghh!
The only respite from this problem is when you touch one of the restart points, but these are few and far between and often located in the most awkward places. So things get very frustrating, particularly as many of the levels involve leaping upwards and it’s all too easy to fall to your death. Things aren't helped by the way the swarming nasties quickly rematerialise after dying, often completely without warning.
Some of the hair-tearing frustration is eased by the ability to start on any of the first four of the five worlds though it's difficult to imagine completing one, never mind all. There's a further choice of which order you attempt each world's four levels. These aren't all multidirectionally scrolling platformers variety is added by some horizontally scrolling flying action (Dan sprouts wings!) And a Moon A erfstyle section. Then there's the Sonic The Hedgehog-like volcanic level, featuring swinging platforms on chains and stone blocks to push into the lava and ride.
All in all, it's a hotch-potch of ideas that don’t quite gel. Though providing much-needed variety, some sections look totally out of place, while others (including the standard platform action) don’t work as well as they might. It's perturbing that the game’s best, and most original, aspect is the superlative soundtrack, with a different tune for each level. Nevertheless, if you can bear the initial frustration, Dojo Dan eventually proves a reasonably playable challenge.
B Core Design, £34.99 Okay, so it sounds like a gut-bustin' dish from a Mexican menu but Core Design’s Curse Ol Enchantia is a lot better than the title may suggest. A sprawling arcade adventure featuring a host of lavish backdrops (painted freehand in acrylics, then digitised), this game is set to wow Amigaphiles everywhere.
The dark and mysterious world of Enchantia exists in a different time, space and dimension from Earth. But thanks to the machinations of an Evil witch, who rules the realm, a portal has been opened allowing the cackling hag to teleport a young lad across the void. And guess what. Yep, you've got it... that little chap is YOU!
¦ Having just found the fish bowl (after escaping his cell), our hero must now make his weary way along a scrolling corridor.

experiencing some difficulty. If anyone can send us a few tips on how to complete it there’s a drink in it!
Clips enable our hero to complete his quest (which is, of course, to find a way back home).
With a similar approach to Gobliiins in its playing style, Curse Of Enchantia features a host of icons which, if selected in the right place, at the right time, AND while the proper object is being held, allow access to further screens. And what screens they are! Superbly painted and rendered, this one scores over Gobliiins by including scrolling sections.
Surprisingly fast for an icon-driven outing, and wonderfully logical in its approach, Curse Of Enchantia has wide appeal and bags of originality. The rib-tickling humour featured throughout is the icing on the cake, and we strongly recommend you take a closer look at it ‘in-store’. Better than a bean burito any day!
¦ Storm, £25.99 Long, long ago in a land far away (barf!), lived Divinius the Sorcerer and his two apprentices, Hocus and Pocus. Professional to a fault, they spent far more time mucking around than doing their studies when it came to all things magic they were as competent as Sarah Ferguson’s PR man! ‘If a job's worth doing, skive it’ was their motto.
Irritated by their nauseous antics, Divinius sent them to clear out the storeroom, which hadn’t been touched for centuries. ‘That’ll keep them out of mischief he thought. He was wrong!
Unbeknown to Hocus and Pocus, of Div was making more Troddlers (I thought only a mummy and daddy Troddler could do that) hoping they’d behave better than the gruesome twosome. And guess what was in the box? That’s right TRODDLERS! Not wasting a moment, the wee ones made a dash for the wizard’s teleport system and were transported to a grim wasteland. Divinius was furious. ‘Get them back at once!’ he screamed, ‘and be bleedin' quick about it!’ A 175-level save-’em-up in the Lemmings mould, Troddlers just oozes variety. Your character (a big Troddler in a green jacket) must guide the little
Troddlers (the Pinkies) from their starting point to the exit, saving a set number to reach the next screen. Getting them from A to B isn’t easy like the Lemmings, they mindlessly plod along regardless of what’s ahead, but unlike Lemmings they can walk up walls, over blocks and even along the ceiling! So how do you guide ’em through the wasteland and into the exits? By building some blocks of your own, that’s how!
Like the PD game Wizzy’s Quest (reviewed this very ish), you can build your blocks in any direction, but only in squares adjacent to your own position. Slap ’em above you, build ’em below, next to you, diagonally... the choice is yours, but you've only a limited supply so don’t build recklessly. You’re far too long in the tooth to walk walls yourself, but you can jump the height of a block. You can also push the blocks and even destroy them, though there’s nothing you can do about the lighter-coloured bedrock.
Easy, eh? What could possibly go wrong? Well for starters some of the Troddlers were mutated into grey, garish zombies who kill the Pinkies on contact and deplete your energy. Getting one in the exit means automatic failure. There’s also a whole host of tricks and traps standing between you and success. You’ve got to work quickly too delay too long and you’re forced to plant blocks on top of our pink pals, making a horrible squidgy mess.
With 100 levels in one-player mode, 50 with two players working as a team and a further 25 with them at war, you won’t complete it in a hurry a comprehensive password system prevents it getting boring too. A great game, though perhaps not quite as Entrance Where the Troddlers start.

STEG THE SLUG If you thought all games were clones of copies of blatantly derivative rip-offs, you've obviously never played Stag' One of the most original concepts in years, this one will have you slugging it out with your Amiga for ages.
Stag's a hard-working slug with a hungry family"to feed. Starting each level surrounded by maggots, you must take them to your kiddies through a series of chambers and passages not easy with no hands! This is achieved by enveloping the maggots in floating bubbles and guiding them away from hazards, eventually bursting them over the Tyungunz (as the nippers like to be called).
Watch out for some interesting power-ups and devices too.
For all its potential. Steg isn't that well executed. The scrolling leaves much to be desired, and guiding Steg round corners is a bit awkward at times. Even so. It's still blimmin' good with loads of levels and a password system to stop you getting bored early on, it s certainly not a rip-off._ ¦ System 3, £25.99 What the Amiga needs now is a really great character for the public to latch on to. You know the sort of thing, an instantly recognisable figurehead, a superstar to beat Sega's Sonic or Nintendo's Mario. Well now we might just have one. Not only is System 3’s Putty a fantastic
game, it also stars one of the cutest, most versatile critters in the history of Amigadom.
Putty is NOT a happy chappy. Imprisoned on planet Earth by Dazzledaze the Cat, to escape he must battle his way up a skyscraper which extends all the way to Putty Moon. Trouble is it hasn't been finished yet, and the construction droids aren't doing their job sounds like a good excuse for a platforms-and-ladders romp!
And that’s exactly what we’ve got here: a Blue Pencil Draws an umbrella which is stored for use as soon as you pick it up.
And activated when you fall too far.
Red Pencil Draws a balloon. As soon as you grab it, it'll take you floating far higher than you can jump.
Green Pencil Draws a potion bottle, which in turn makes you invincible for 15 seconds.
Yellow Pencil Draws a stopwatch that freezes the screen for 10 seconds.
Eraser Bomb Rub out your enemies with this mega-powerful smart-bomb.
AUTUMN 1993 ¦ ISSUE ONE CJ IN THE USA DIZZY When Codies ovoid wonder first appeared on the Spectrum it was heralded as one of the most original games ever. Since then it s spawned countless sequels, each an advance on (though not particularly different from) the last. Magicland Dizzy Is simply more of the same, a cutesy arcade- adventure-cum-platform-romp through the magical world ot the Yolk Folk.
The problems and character interaction are a definite improvement on its predecessors, and the graphics well you can't go far wrong with Dizzy, can you?
Magiclands a blindingly addictive game which arcade adventurers everywhere will love to bits if you've never played a Dizzy game, give it a go. If you have, you'll know what to expect... There's nothing like a good old cutesy platform romp, is there? CJ In The USA is so cute you'll puke, but it doesn't play as well as its predecessor. Elephant Antics.
Those familiar with CJ's last romp will find no surprises here it's virtually the same game1 The same through-the-trunk bullet blasting, same collect-and-chuck bomb lobbing, same everything, but with one important difference it s not as goodl So what went wrong? The movement controls are a little wonky, the collision detection's somewhat erratic, and the overall layout's not as exciting. Even so it’s not a disaster if you've finished Elephant Antics and are hungry tor more, you could do worse than check this out.
Vertically scrolling platformer! Each of six levels is graphically very different, comprising three separate stages. Though not huge (about sixscreens high), these are superbly detailed and packed with some of the neatest touches ever seen on the Amiga.
To complete each stage you must take up to five robots to the exit, represented by either a spaceship or lift. Standing in your way are some of the wildest baddies ever seen, all of which deplete your pliability, which is effectively an energy bar. This is restored by absorbing anything organic, including fallen toes.
As Putty's an amorphous blob, he can bounce like a squash ball, stretch across platforms, mould himself into a list and punch, or flatten out to absorb enemies or robots. If he's really desperate he can blow himself up it costs 25% of his energy, but destroys everything on screen. Best of all he can take on the attributes of certain toes after absorbing them, eg to get rid of the light bulbs he must turn into an electric worm and give 'em an overload. All functions are achieved through the joystick, so controls are complicated at first, but soon become instinctive. Full marks to System 3 tor
including a training screen!
Putty boasts a tactical depth never before seen in a platformer, and it's brilliantly executed too no fiddling around with endless menus and no Rick Dangerous-style unfair deaths either! You'll spend ages picking out the best way to get to the exit, how to get rid of this baddie, how to get round that problem, etc. For example, at one point you come across two mortar-firing doobries who cry 'incomiiiing' and fire a rocket at you on sight. By jumping between them at just the right time you can con them into blasting each other. A few screens earlier there’s a Terminator Carrot (‘Uzi nine
centi-meteeeeer) keep in front ot him but out of the firing line and the recoil from his gun sends him crashing over the edge of the platform. It’s little touches like this that put Putty in a class of its own.
It's difficult to describe just how good Putty is. The graphics are unbelievable, speech samples excellent, gameplay a dream, and the main character could easily become a cult figure. The inclusion of level codes would've been a boon, but that’s about the only flaw.
Short, tight stages with well-defined goals make it a spawny rip-snorter no Amiga owner should be without!
TaWaWa ROBIN HOOD THE LEGEND QUEST Aha. A controversial one1 Robin Hood The Legend Quests never before been released, but opinion's divided as to its merits. Half the team think it's a pile of tosh, the other halt quite like it.
It's not difficult to see where the inspiration tor Robin Hood came from. A blatant Gods clone, you must guide ol Robin through a suspiciously familiar-looking castle, collecting treasure as you go To make progress you'll need to collect a tew keys very useful for opening doors1 Look out for the Sheriff of Nottingham's nasties as well.
Robin Hood has all the trappings of a good game, but loses a lot in the execution department The main sprite walks like he's tilled his underwear, and his legs bend like the rubber pencils you get Irom joke shops. Worst of all. The scrolling's a pain in the eyes it's smooth enough but all that garish brickwork s a bit sickening.
So there we have it. Forty quid's worth of games for a mere £25.
There's something for everyone here, and no outstanding turkey. Robin Hood Legend Quest and CJ In The USA aren't as good as their stablemates, but are far from being duds. Super All-Stars is well worth checking out.

When first released the title was often taken to mean Silk Worm IV. Although the programmers denied it was a sequel, the similarities are obvious both feature one- or two- player action, one warrior taking a helicopter, the other a jeep. Both have you blasting through umpteen tons of high-tech gadgetry, collecting power-ups. - But that's where the similarities end. Where Silkworm was ' a side-on-view horizontal scroller, SWIV takes a vertical A overhead perspective, giving the jeep far more room to manoeuvre (in Silkworm it could only hug the ground, jump A 1 M.

it much better as a two-player outing.

I Kixx, £7.99 (Rerelease) That's the thing about System 3’s Last Ninja series you either like them or you don’t. Fans of the 3-D-isometric- perspective-arcade-adventure-cum-beat- 'em-up genre will turn cartwheels over this, but despite much-improved execution and playability it won’t win over any detractors.
Taking on board complaints about the earlier games in the series, Last Ninja 3 features far more convoluted problems: the size of the game screen has been reduced, giving more room for the control panel. Object manipulation is made vastly more complex the previous Ninja games suffered from an appalling lack of depth in this department, and rarely expected you to use more than one item in solving a problem. The screen update is far quicker too.
With all this improvement going on, you'd think they’d do something about the control system. The other Ninja outings were cursed by some of the worst joystick controls ever seen on the Amiga it was hell trying to get your man to do what you intended! While Ninja 3 is undeniably an improvement, it's still far too easy to hobble off a cliff when trying to boot a baddie.
All things considered, Last Ninja 3 is a fine game. The improved object manipulation gives the game real depth, and the problems are trickier (if a little obscure). Okay, the controls still suck but we can’t have everything. If you're a fan of the earlier Ninja games or maybe disappointed by their lack of depth, Ninja 3 is an essential purchase.
OZDI CodeMasters, £7.99 (Original) Captain Dynamo isn't your usual superhero. He's got the tacky monicker, the superpowers and (most important of all) the multicoloured tights, but... he's a geriatric! Pulled out of retirement at an age when most get fat and talk about the good old days, Dynamo must save the world (again) from the evil diamond thief and retired scientist Austen Von Flyswatter.
A perilous platform spectacular, Captain Dynamo's a cross between Rick Dangerous and Rainbow Islands. Starting at the foot of each level, you'll need all your wits about you to reach the exit at the top, collecting gems as you go.
How do you time your leaps between laser blasts? Where should you land when you've done it? What do you do on the lifts? Each level presents a new set of challenges such as moving platforms, rotating buzz-saws, pulleys... all the thrills and spills of a top platformer! Its forgiving (not pixel-perfect) leaps don’t make life easy, they just mean when you die you've only yourself to blame (which is exactly how it should be).
As well as great gameplay, Dynamo also boasts superb graphics and animation. The sound leaves a lot to be desired: an ill-fitting tune and no effects at all.

Kixx, £7.99, (Rerelease) In days of old when heroes wore loin cloths and carried huge axes, lived one of the 'ardest Barbarians around. Savage loves nothing better than whistling his axe through the air and eviscerating his enemies. And it would seem he has good reason to be peeved: being locked in a castle dungeon with only rats for company doesn’t do much for anyone’s temper. To add insult to injury his sweetheart’s been kidnapped, and is even now being held somewhere in the castle.
Not knowing this, Savage makes a break for freedom. This entails a huge battle against the castle’s demons in a horizontally scrolling shoot-’em-up. As he stomps along, the dungeon denizens attack without mercy. Savage is initially in possession of magical axes, but destroyed creatures leave behind jewels and more powerful weapons.
After displaying gymnastic abilities over flaming and seemingly bottomless pits, Savage reaches the guardians of the dungeon door. Once past he finds himself in Death Valley, a vertically scrolling section where vicious skulls, ghosts and monoliths attack. This section’s viewed in a 3-D first-person perspective, so get ready for a phrrt-inducing time.
At the end of the level, Savage discovers what we’ve known all along. His girlie’s being held in the castle he just left, so there's nowt for it but to return to the castle!
This time he manages to go around Death Valley, and very soon the walls of the castle loom.
Savage’s only hope of seeing his sweetheart again lies with his pet eagle. This he sends into the castle to destroy the last of the demon hordes, and then pick up their special powers. You control the eagle, via Savage’s psychic link with the bird. The feathered fiend cheerfully dispatches the surviving evil creatures with venomous spit.
It then only remains to rescue the girl of Savage’s dreams. A shoot-’em-up in the classic mould, Savage is tough but well worth the measly eight-quid price tag.

US Gold's conversion ot Sega's Super Monaco GP isn't the best driver on the Amiga, but at budget prices it's not a rip-off.
Super Monaco Gpfeatures an excellent choice of gear controls beginners can opt for an automatic, progressing to a four-gear model and finally there’s a seven-gear super car for the really flash. Well it's excellent in theory anyway. In practice it's far too forgiving you can spend far too long in top gear, using the brakes to slow down and accelerating with impunity.
The graphics are a bit hit- and-miss too. The cars are pretty enough and the sprite- based 3-D gives a real feeling of speed, but a few liberties have been taken with the backgrounds since when were F1 circuits surrounded by high-rise office blocks? And as for the sound... pass the ear plugs!
Complaints aside, Super Monaco GP is still a very playable game. It's fast, exciting, and if you turn the sound off and ignore the backgrounds it’s not bad at all.
Not the best racer on the Amiga, but a fair game in its own right. Don’t expect miracles and you won't be disappointed.

I. V »C f|l 11 it XIIIMM HI*M Kixx, £7.99 (Rerelease) Why do the
villains in computer games possess such silly names? The arch
enemy in Flimbo’s Quest is no ex exception: Dr Franz Dandruff
is in big trouble due to a failed immortality experiment. He’s
ageing rapidly, and will soon die if he doesn’t do something
fast. To this end he’s kidnapped a young girl called Pearly,
and plans to use her 'bodily sustaining juices’ to return him
to normal. But help is at hand in the guise of Pearly’s
But Dandruff hasn’t been voted ‘Megalomaniac Most Likely To Trample Everyone Else Into The Dirt' seven years running for nothing. Dandruff sets his army of mutated creatures loose to bite and sting Flimbo, depleting his lives (he starts with three).
But Flimbo’s in possession of a gun, so he can cheerfully blast the little blighters' kneecaps off.
As he leaps around the horizontally scrolling, platform-filled levels, Flimbo collects coins to spend on weapon improvements and potions in the centrally located shop. This is also where he brings the parchments needed to reach the next level. Dropped by some baddies on their demise, each contains a letter of a computer code.
Seven code words need to be discovered and fed into Dandruffs machine. Otherwise Pearly'll never speak to Flimbo again, come to think of it she'll never speak to anyone again.
Platform games are always popular, and Flimbo's Quests no exception. The original £25 price tag was a tad over the top, but on budget the game's a snip.

Trouble is, die soon after and you restart here
without your drone. In this case, use rapid fire and watch thei By now you should be heavily armed with drone and lasers, so the big jetpackers are no problem.
Watch out, your drone won’t protect you against these huge fireballs. There are a couple of ways to deal with the creeps that fire them: either send the drone into them (hit the space bar), or keep moving up and down, using your beam weapon.
This big guy looks tough but he’s a piece of cake to kill. Just position your ship level with his mouth, send in the drone and move to the top, just left of the eyeball to avoid his fire.
These weird alien plants’ spout pods which, if not shot, quickly i deve,°P ‘nto firing nasties. No problem if you’re fully armed.

PLAYING TIPS Shoot this to reveal a power-up collect it and your helpful drone comes to join you.
If you've lost your drone, this section is very tricky. Shoot the first power-up ship, collect the speed-up and zip past the missile launcher.
The second power-up gives you the drone, so you should then be okay.J Shoot this power-up ship to collect missiles.
ITT in 1 There are two possible techniques here: use your drone (in front or attached to your ship) to hit the vulnerable segment, or use I the beam weapon. Either way, use the drone to deflect bullets.
[If you have the orb, use it to smash into 1 these guns. If you haven't, then some delicate aerial manoeuvres are in order!
Hfl __ ¦WiMa.IfS These revolting geezers pop out of the scenery, top and bottom, without warning. They take a few shots to kill, but you can eliminate two simultaneously with the beam.
WA.. -p, tom Place your ship to the left of the baddie, just above the level of its top, and send in your drone.
Move down to the bottom left (where you’re safe from the worm), press space again to lodge your drone at the top of the baddie and keep blasting , to knock out the vulnerable blue ‘eye’.
Vfc 1% ! .
We reckon these yellow things are meant to be fireballs whatever they are, they’re very useful as they follow the contours of the landscape.
The top icon gives you the R-Type drone (below) which absorbs bullets, fires and can be attached to the front or back of your ship.
You can’t destroy this wriggly worm, but gain extra points from shooting his segments. After making an expedition leftwards he returns to the big end-of-level baddie.
Diagonal lasers are great for getting at baddies hiding in nooks and crannies. They even bounce off walls, so with clever aiming you can even do ricochet shots.
Aim rapid fire to just clear the top of the rocket flame and hit its source. If you’re unarmed, these two power-ups will give you a drone and fireballs.
Ram your drone into this gun, then move down to avoid the laser fire and use fireballs to eliminate the second gun.
Shoot the power-up to collect high-powered lasers. Use these to make mincemeat of the four rockets and detaching ship section.
The first power-up gives you your drone, * hit it as soon as possible to knock out the missile launcher. The other is a speed-up.
Clear away any remaining green stuff to allow maximum manoeuvrability.
The big baddie splits into three sections then reassembles before splitting up aaain. When he splits, go to a safe area of the screen and send in the drone.
Use the beam weapon to kill these, but watch out for their segments which spin towards you.
These aliens home in on you, usually creeping up from behind. Either put the drone on your back, or manoeuvre around and behind the baddies.
WirogTOglhi wafta aMiaiBgaa These laser-firing aliens require two beam-weapon shots to destroy. As you’ve little hope of killing them all, try to just clear a path through.
, v «iVW-vjwU'’«iV Attach the drone to your rear to deal with these baddies which come at you from .the left. Collect the power-up for lasers.
After destroying all the top guns, send your drone in and quickly move right round the ship, pressing space when you’re just to the left of the alcove. Your drone should lodge in the heart of the ship. Move your ship into the alcove and fire like there's no tomorrow. If you blow it... there won't be!
Wait for the three guns to fire then smash your rear-attached drone into them. Use the same technique on the top guns.
Stay in this alcove when the ship scrolls down, then blast the three guns, shoot the power-up for diagonal lasers, and quickly manoeuvre the drone to attach to your ship’s rear.
The easiest route though the green stuff is down the bottom. Blast thrrough with your beam woapon it's best to keep your drone behind to deal wtth the nastiee that follow you._ This is where it starts getting tricky! Use your beam weapon to knock out loads of baddies simultaneously.
Use the beam weapon and the drone to knock out all the blobs to reveal the nasty who can then be easily dispatched.
¦ ISSUE ONE AUTUMN 1992 AF These big ships can’t be destroyed, so weave between them, shooting the firing ‘chips’ as you go. Grab the « mi M power-up to get the drone.
You need to quickly W** j shoot the power-up to Ikl get the drone, then move to safety to the right of the wall, firing to kill the stream of baddies with the drone.
Place your ship to the left of this gap, ready to knock out all the yellow ships, then speed past the missile H|| launchers. £ j This huge ship appears from the left, so it’s a good idea to attach the drone to your rear Use the beam weapon to dispose of these baddies, before speeding past the missile launchers.
?? Loads of these green “H foetus-like aliens appear | from the top and bottom.
Your orb will deal with the falling nasties while you beam the little alien who pops up from the floor and the big baddie on the right. Mm These indestructible stars appear from the bottom and swirl hh around in large circles, so can be avoided by f staying in the middle._ This gives you diagonal lasers. It’s best to wait till he comes out of his hiding place before shooting him, so the power-up's easier to collect.
This geezer blocks the way, so you need to get through before he gets to this position.
With the drone attached to your rear move your ship to this position and just keep firing to destroy all the big ships which enter from the top.
The best technique here is to put your ship above the little platform to avoid fire from the other baddies, and use rapid fire to knock out most of the yellow ships before the scroll forces you to zip to the right. Easy... Though getting through this level is easy enough, you need to collect all the power-ups for the final big baddie.

PUB LIC DOMAIN DMACUN GAMES PACK 1 Wild-a seven- game collection of the snappiest PD games ever, and it’s even cheaper than usual! Can’t grumble, can you?
The first package kicks off with Amoeba Invaders, a near-perfect copy of the ageing classic. There's a few changes the arcade original was monochrome, but gave the illusion THOSE DATACLAN DUDES Unlike most PD libraries, Dataclan don’t charge anything for copying just send ’em the blanks and a stamped addressed envelope and they’ll do the rest.
Send ’em to: Dataclan, c o 17 Saltford, Allerdene Est, Low Fell, Gateshead, Tyne & Wear NE9 6BG. Make sure you send enough disks and the correct postage. And fon’t forget your own name and address!
Public Domain (or PD to its chums) programs are those where the author has relaxed his or her copyright, allowing them to be distributed freely. PD libraries charge only disk and duplication costs, and you’re perfectly entitled to copy a friend’s disk. PD’s bosom-buddy Shareware can also be freely copied, but if you like the program and continue to use it you should send the programmer a small fee.
Kmm B9H MPH ¦PH PHPP ¦PHI r-t *T'i V i" i i » i *r Spanky sprites and sizzling sound don’t prevent Blob-A-Blob being the worst game on the disk. Walk along the platform, stop and jump up when the baddies arrive, walk some more... once you’ve covered them all you go on to the next level, but by then you’ll have fallen asleep. Booooring!
Tip: reset the computer and load the next game.
By contrast Cave Runner is one of the best PD outings I’ve ever seen! A great interpretation of the old Boulderdash arcade opus, Cave Runner features better graphics, sound and puzzly bits not seen in the original, eg floating bubbles that turn into collectables on contact with diamonds. A real PD classic that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat for ages a lot of budget games don’t play this well.
Tip: when chased by a roving baddie, block its path with a boulder.
Of colour by using tinted cellophane strips!
Thankfully the PD version has coloured sprites.
The sound’s slightly different too, but what the hell? if it’s an accurate copy of Space Invaders you’re after, look no further.
Tip: shoot the ones at the sides first the aliens then take longer to reach the edge of the screen, and therefore longer to reach the ground.
AF AUTUMN 1992 ISSUE ONE ¦ Another rave from the grave. Girl Actions is a cleverly-titled Galaxians clone (think about it). Though mildly playable, it’s a flawed conversion the aliens in formation only move from side to side, not up and down, and they're not animated at all.
Worth a look, though.
When the yellow alien makes a move, kill his guards first for more points.
Yourself or with a friend, you fit the falling blocks together to form complete horizontal lines which disappear. If the pile reaches the top of the screen, the player is Mr Wobbly Leg Vs The Space Invaders is regarded as a classic on the PD circuit it's a real mystery why! A witty interpretation of Space Invaders (quelle surprise), your sprite is initially unarmed. Run across the screen collecting stars and power-ups. Then when you die you're into Space Invaders proper with your ship's attributes depending on items collected. I'm all for updating the old classics, but this is utterly
pointless a pity as it’s a great piece of programming.
Tip. Work quickly when collecting power- ups. The aliens fire at an incredible rate, so as soon as your shelters are breached you’re in trub!
Eliminated, leaving the other to battle on by himself highest score wins.
It’s a blindingly playable conversion that urinates over the official conversion. There’s no excuse whatsoever for not having this one in your collection!
OMAIN Tip: multiple lines score heavily, and all lines score more points the further up the screen they are.
As PD ‘tributes’ go, it’s a miracle Zeus stayed out of the courts. All that money Ocean spent on the Puzznic licence just to see some smart-arse PD programmer rip it off for free! A fiendishly addictive puzzler, the aim of the game is to get rid of all the tiles by matching like with like it's mouse only and hasn't as many levels, but apart from that it's a complete clone (and a damn fine one at that).
Check out the level codes elsewhere in this column.
One of the lesser Amiga mags described Wizzy's Quest as a game you wouldn't mind paying 20 quid for.' That’s a slight exaggeration, but it’s still bloomin’ good.
Each level is played on a static screen.
“1 where you must guide I the lady in purple out | of the doorway and j into the next level by ! Building blocks next to.
above or below Wizzy.
, You can jump one block in height, but she can’t so don't let her fall below door level! It’s funny how the most addictive games are based on the simplest concepts.
Always warm the pot before making the tea. (Sorry, I couldn't think of a hint for this one!)
Neat they put together a blinding two- disk package, chuck the entire menu on disk one and force you to swap disks if you pick out a game on the second disk! Personally I'd have preferred two separate packages, but who’s quibbling? (You are Ed.)

The graphics are cool, the sound amazing, and the power-ups some of the most imaginative I’ve ever seen they’re cumulative too, so you don’t have to choose between the one you’ve got and what's falling. A Shareware outing, if you pay your registration fee you get a level editor to design your own screens.
Tip: learn what each power-up icon does, as some of them actually power-down!
¦ How many sprites can the Amiga handle? With Shoot Out (if you’re equal to the challenge!) You may just find out.
Depth, it won’t keep you playing for long but it's fun while it lasts.
Tip: when the screen fills, keep your eyes on your craft, not the enemies.
Drip's a blimmin’ good game. None of us crumblies remember seeing it in the arcades of yesteryear but it plays like a golden oldie.
A sort of cross between Pac-man and Painter, your task is to run along the pipes, rusting them as you go. As well as the standard blundering baddies, watch out for floating bubbles, electric pulses and acid puddles. A wonderfully addictive game, it’s outings like this that really show the value of PD.
Tip: when falling from a pipe, guide yourself as you drop you don’t have to land where you fall.
Crossfire is more of a mental agility test than a game. The ship on the ‘floor’ is controlled by left right joystick movement, the one on the ‘wall’ by up down. Can you imagine how confusing this is? The enemies move in straight lines at first, executing increasingly complex attack patterns on higher levels. At the end of each level you can trade your score for power-ups. Another prog that won’t hold your attention for ever, but it’s an excellent exercise in lateral thinking.
Aim at vertically moving baddies with the lower ship; horizontal ones with the wall-mounted one.
Shoot Out is a typical PD blaster, with the enemies bouncing around the screen at varying speeds. On Level One there's only one, two on the second, three on the third, etc it gets pretty hectic by Level 25!
Smooth and fast but completely lacking in 0004758 No prizes for guessing what rave from the grave Rollerpede's based on! A rip-roaring Centipede- inspired blaster, your task is to smash the creepy- crawlies, segment by segment. If they reach the edge of the screen or hit one of the randomly growing mushrooms, they move down a line.
Unlike Space Invaders you have limited forward movement, and you’ll need it contact with a nasty is fatal! All the embellishments are there, such as jumping spiders, spaceships that bomb the hell out of you, and the odd tank keeping you off the ground. A true PD classic.
Tip: just keep firing!
There’s always a bad apple in the barrel, and Mr Munk In Fluidland is the traditional turkey. Walk along grabbing the Ankhs, leaping the spikes and dodging the bouncy balls simple and straightforward, but hellishly boring. A shame, as the graphics and sound are excellent.
Tip: the longer you hold fire, the higher you jump don't jump too high, and remember you can control your sprite as it flies.
¦ Wow, what a mental game! Drip (Right) is one of those puzzlers that plays like so many others, but remains totally original! Magic.

- - - 4 ands up everyone who bought Ocean's official conversion
of Williams' Smash TV? Bloomin' awful, wasn't it?
Technically tailored to the American market, differences in television systems (we use PAL, they use NTSC) causes a big black gap at the foot of the screen when played this side of the Atlantic! Thankfully Amiga-ites can play Smash 7Vin the privacy of their own home without H ¦ Wakka wakka wakka kersplat!
Eat death, suckers... blam blam blam KABOOM! (You’re fired Ed.)

Forking out 25 quid on that tosh Mark Gallagher's honestly-titled Smash TV The Rip-Off is an absolute raver!
The first thing you notice about the game is the brilliant Llamalron-inspired firing system which eliminates the need for the coin-op’s second joystick. Here your man fires constantly hitting the fire button aims the gun in the direction of movement; releasing it keeps it steady regardless of movement.
Sounds complicated, but it works brilliantly in practice.
The second thing you notice is that it's faster than a chicken vindaloo! The official version was a bit sluggish at times, lacking the fluidity and urgency of its arcade counterpart. Again The Rip-Off scores highly here, retaining the psychotic-slaughterfest atmosphere of the original, though it does slow down ever so slightly when the screen fills. Also, after each screen is completed the Shareware version scrolls onto the next, as did the coin-op the official version didn't, giving it a cheap-and- nasty look.
Perhaps the biggest fault of the Ocean game 17 Bit, £1.10 Registration fee: £5.00 Jeff Minter is a disillusioned man. His independent software company Llamasoft was set up in 1982, a time when anyone could produce an exciting and original product and get it sold not any more. Today's market’, claims Jeff, 'is full of huge corporations putting out the same game over and over again with a different film licence tagged on.' With producers uninterested in anything that isn't spaceships-and-aliens or cutesy character licences, Jeff decided to go it alone and sell the brilliant Uamatron as
Based on the Williams coin-op Robotron, Uamatron is a blaster par excellence. You control a cutesy llama besieged by some of the B It’s the wild, wacky presentation screen but if I had a haircut like that I'd wear a paper bag and not sunglasses!
Weirdest baddies ever seen Coke cans, joysticks, hamburgers, Space Invaders... you name it, it's probably here.
Like the original, you must collect the ‘goodies' (humans in the original, furry animals in Uamatron) by running into them they then follow you in a neat little line. Each stage is played on a single screen, though unlike Robotron sequel Smash Twit's largely featureless and all the baddies start on-screen. The longer you survive the more intelligent they get.
If you’ve got two joysticks (and who hasn’t?)
You can emulate the original Robotron control method, using one for movement and the other for firing. Alternatively you can use just one, *

Auto-firing in the direction of movement, holding the fire button to freeze direction of fire whichever way you move. Just as above, in fact. There’s also a two-player option and a brilliant computer-assist mode where the (single) player is helped by a computer- controlled robot. Just right for beginners!
Naturally there are loads of power-ups on offer, such as three-way fire, extra lives, hotshots, bullets that bounce UBLIC DOMAIN jm.:' This (?) Sr- ¦T'.Ta you a right powerful (if not confusing) grenade-lobber.
Is that it's so heavily cut down. The screen display is tiny compared to the original, forcing the programmer to make a few compromises on the baddies not so the Rip-Off. The full screen is used, and the attack patterns are far more accurate.
For all its strengths, Smash TV The Rip-Off does have a few drawbacks. There's no background tune (though the sound effects are blimmin’ good), and when you lose your last life the whole thing crashes back to the intro screen no game-over message at all! Don't let this put you off though. It isn’t often an amateur programmer beats the biggies at their own game. Smash TV The Rip-Off is (to put it bluntly) one of the best Shareware shooters we've ever seen, and is worth every penny of the £3 registration fee.
Buy AND die!

Wodges of slime, and a • really snappy fractal effect that takes loads of hits before dying unlike most baddies, it fires back too!
It's difficult to describe just how good Llamatron really is. The action is exciting and fast, the game slowing not one iota when the screen fills. Controls are well thought out and easy to manipulate, and the all-round presentation is of a standard you'd expect from a £25 game! As for the sound... one-meg owners will gasp at the brilliant samples.
All this for a fiver! You couldn't wish for a better barg, so get that cheque in the post NOW!
I Oh no, another Llama-inspired caption to write. How about ‘Llamatron it's a great game'?

* 4 SHAREWARE SHOPPING The principle behind Shareware is that if
you like the game, you pay the programmer a small fee. If you
don't like it, just re-format the disk, and you've lost
nothing. If you 'forget' to pay your registration fee you're
guilty of piracy!
Shareware is an excellent way of getting games, as you’re in no danger of buying a dud, but if people don't cough up for them the programmers will lose faith in the idea abuse it and you'll lose it.
