Changing the ways off TV All the Amigas at Amblin are connected together on a network, and most of the rendering is done in a Render Farm arrangement which means that each Amiga is given a single frame of an animation to render. Once these are completed, the results are transferred on to digital video tape for the final editing process of combining the computer generated images with the other film. Amblin seem to be happy with the Toaster and Lightwave, "it's changing the way network TV in the US is done," says Taylor. "It means that effect- based series that could not get off the ground before for financial reasons are now possible." O FOR A FEW Since the inception of 24-bit graphics on the Amiga, it has always been one of the most exciting areas of Amiga graphics. In no time at all, many companies equipped their software with 24-bit support. Now that the standard Amigas have the ability to display at near true-colour standards, the importance and popularity of 24-bit graphics has never been higher. But it is still a confusing field for many. Even those with the knowledge of the software and hardware necessary to handle 24- bit graphics sometimes have difficulty sourcing objects and textures for their images. In order to assist graphics enthusiasts in their search for fonts, objects, textures, images and so on. Gordon Keenan and John Campbell formed the 24-Bit Club. The club's loose association of Amiga graphics enthusiasts includes DTP users, 3D buffs, animators and graphic artists. In fact anyone with an interest in Amiga graphics.

Before you do anything else you should be aware that this month's Coverdisk will not boot directly, so you will have to boot up from your normal Workbench disk first. Then simply insert your Coverdisk and you are away.
The Coverdisk also makes use of a library called explode.library. If you do not have this on your Workbench disk, you will have to copy it across. To do this simply open a Workbench Shell and type: A seasonal offering of software stunners adorn this month's cover.
Battle through the three games and then annoy Cranny with SuperJAM!
Copy AP54a:liba explode. Library libs: You will have to swap disks a few times and then the operation will be complete.
Disk 54b is autobooting, so if you want to play this special demo of Sensible's best shoot- em-up, just stick disk 54b into your drive and turn the machine on, or perform a soft reset.
IlBgj For more details on how to play the Cannon Fodder demo, turn to page 12... ON THIS MONTH'S Cxiverdisk 54a you will find a grand tolal of four things to play around with - just like Xmas morning. First up is the top- notch music package SuperJAM'.. Don't worry if you have no musical knowledge at all: even if you can't tell a metronome from a garden gnome, you'll be able to create wonderful sounds with this excellent package from the world- renowned Blue Ribbon Soundworks!
This full disk is stored on the Coverdisk in compacted format. To decompress the disk you must open the disk window and then double-click on the Super am! Disk's icon. You may be asked to insert Workbench again - don't worry.
When the compressed file is copied to RAM, the decompression utility will ask you to insert a blank disk into DFO:. The internal disk drive. Do this and then press Return. After a while your SuperJAM! Disk will be created.
To use your SuperJAM! Disk, you will have to boot from your Workbench disk again.
Also on the disk you will find two more compacted files which will decompress on to whole disks. One of these is XAP, an excellent and original game which pits your craft against alien blobbv things bent on destruction. Decompress this disk in the same way as the SufierJAM! Disk above.
The last compressed file on the Coverdisk is for a disk containing the source for this month's Hlilz Hasic column and another excellent game, coded entirely in Hlilz. Finally, we have also included a drawer on this disk called 'Textures', with extra textures for use with Imagine.
1 MEG IMAGINE USERS Due to circumstances beyond our intelligence, there were a couple o errors in the Preferences set up details in last month's Coverdisk pages Any of you who tried the Preference fixes only to be thwarted when trying to quickrender the image, please accept our apologies and make the following corrections to the type-in.
The Quickrender preset should indeed be lores. But it should appear as "Lores'' and not "LORES" in the Preferences listing. The second error is the output file format which should remain unchanged as "RGBN-12 bit” or can be changed to "IFF" for a non-impulse format file.
Backing up your disk :i ¦r».|'|t.lw,B n fail «« fm. He s r-f.
¦M. "SuV tfitW fiaiir'i Jjhgj | 1r tOcm “ Load your Workbench disk. Open the disk, find the icon that says Shell or CLI and doubleclick on it There are two ways of making a copy of your disk, and this is the easy one. Don't be daunted by the fact that you need to use the Shell or CLI: it's actually a lot easier than you might think. Lmdyou,« Just follow these simple steps... ' icoo«£T» .ira.wrnygrr.Ti; 2 When the Shell window appears and the drive light is out type in (OfO as in Zero, not DfO as in Oops): Diskcopy from OfO: to DfO: and press the Return key.
3 The Amiga will now ask you to insert the 'source' disk. It means the disk you want to copy, so put the Coverdisk in the drive and press the Return key.
4 Wait for a while and it will read all the information off the Coverdisk. Telling you how far it has got. Then it will ask you to insert the 'Destination' disk.
Put the disk you want to copy your Coverdisk on to. In the drive and press the Return key. Note that the disk does not need to be formatted already.
5 Put the source disk and destination disk in a couple more times when the Amiga asks for them.
When it says ‘Diskcopy Finished" just type in: enddi to get out of the Shell or CLI. You may have to put the Workbench disk in again. Now your copy is ready!

A HO! HO! HO! Vvhat greater fun could you have this Yuletide season than trolling around two mind- mangling and totally exclusive levels of Sensible Software's latest violently strategic outing, Cannon Fodderi We couldn't think of anything more warmingly seasonal than pressing a mouse button to unleash fiery death on several blood-lusting enemy monsters, so here's the plot... You are in command of four likely-looking troopers. Your task is to destroy everything in sight - buildings, helicopters, people - in order to clear these two snowily wonderful, seasonally-adjusted levels of the enemy
scum that infests them.
Couldn't lx- easier. Well, it could. It could Ik- a great deal easier. In fact, most of the games you've ever seen are a great deal simpler than this. But boy oh boy. Is it fun! Read the following instructions carefully before ploughing straight in. Or you'll Ik- sorry. And a big "Ball! Humbug!” to all of you... HOW TO MOVE ABOUT... AND KILL THINGS... your men to them and then clicking on the object with the Left Button held down.
HOLD DOWN RIGHT BUTTON AND THEN PRESS LEFT BUTTON to throw grenades or fire rockets.
Make sure to position the sight over the target and away from yourself.
|P) KEY pauses the game. Which can be useful to give yourself a chance to think and work out just what's going on.
RIGHT BUTTON: fire guns. Spray fire by moving the mouse around.
LEFT BUTTON: walk - keep the mouse pointer as far ahead as you can, the guys will follow it. You can also pick up rockets and grenades by leading THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT Below are just a few of the elements that you will chance upon as you wend your merry way through the snowy landscapes and winter wonderlands that your commanding officer has decided should be the place of your ultimate victory or doom... 1 This is a 'friendly' gun - well, it’s not manned by the bad guys, anyway. This means that you can climb into it and start shooting by laying into the right mouse button with a
vengeance.
2 This is an enemy gun emplacement. You can tell this by the red light on top (as well as the chappie standing next to it). Don't try to get into this one - just blow it up with a grenade or a rocket.
3 That will leave it looking like this.
* An enemy chopper. Once again the red light on the top tells you
what you need to know - as if the fact that it will be raining
bombs on your head won't give you a hint or two. Avoid it at
ail costs.
5 Water: don't be afraid of it. Go on, dive in. Fortunately for your lads, you can fire at the enemy when submerged up to your necks in icy aqua. But do move fast.
6 Your grenade and rocket sight. Position this over the chosen target and dick both buttons to unleash a shower of explosive death. Merry Christmas to ye!
7 Goalposts. Now, for the sake of keeping excitement levels at the maximum, we are showing you the posts at the top of the Land of Hope and Glory level. We don't want to spoil all the secrets, so we won't show you what lurks between the posts at the bottom. Take our word for it it's nastier than Peter Shilton in a bad mood.
8 An enemy hut - you can tell by the door. Your task is to grenade or rocket it so the door disappears. Fail to do this and the enemy will just keep coming at you.
There is snow in the air and the land is filled with the spirit of Christmas as Sensible Soccer and Cannon Fodder characters celebrate the brotherhood of man. Well, actually, they try to kill each other, but it was a nice thought for a moment.
GAGGLES OF GROUPS Now here's a handy tip. Just because you've got four soldiers in one group doesn't mean that you can't split them up and deploy them over the terrain. All you need do is click on one or two of the names in the top left panel so that it is highlighted. Then click on the badge over the names (the snake, the bird, the panther). This will then split your troops. You are in control of the lighter coloured box. While you're away, the other troops will stay where they are and look after themselves. To rejoin the whole squad, simply move one of the sections into the other. This is
a useful tactic for exploring - sending one chap is better than wasting the entire group.
DISK NOT WORKING?
We have duplicated over 560,000 disks this month and out of all those, sadly a few will be faulty. If your disk is faulty or any of the programs on it will not load or run properly, there may be a problem. Don't panic!
However, if your Coverdisk is in fact faulty, you should send it back INCLUDING A STAMPED, ADDRESSED ENVELOPE for a free replacement within one month of the cover date to: Amiga Format Christmas Disk Disk Copy Labs Ltd Units 2&3 Omega Technical Centre, Drayton Fields, Daventry, Northants, NN11 5RT XAP An original shoot-em-up.
LAND OF HOPE AND GLORY a* • I ,;rr PBPA • .
..... «n‘ .
In the first mission. Land of Hope and Glory, you must remember to destroy these huts, avoid the helicopter, man the gun. Pick up the grenades and kill everyone. Why destroy the huts? If you don't then enemy soldiers keep emerging from them. Here's a tip, though: you only need to destroy those huts that have doors. You can tell IT'S SNOWTIME!
In the second mission - It's Snowtime! - you have to move from the bottom of the screen to the top. You do this by swimming through icy water, picking up rockets, shooting enemy troopers and knocking off two gun emplacements at the top when you've managed to do the job when the hut no longer has a door.
As you can see from the second picture, these huts are no longer a danger to the good guys. Remember, though, that these dwellings cannot be destroyed simply with guns. You've got to grenade them from a safe distance.
Of the screen (first picture). You can only destroy these with grenades or rockets, so don't waste them. Once you've overcome that problem, trying to blow the hell out of a helicopter could be a good idea. Or maybe not. You decide.
R. r-« J*e Mr .1
i. KFJ, inBUSfi H«Jt,M'k1 t, PL.A} This is the Shareware demo
version. You can always register for even more mayhem.
An excellent if somewhat confusing, shareware shoot-em-up by Cas Prince. The story line: those nasty Gidrahs are attacking your planet and you have been given command of a purple sphere which fires bullets and smart bombs.
You are the last hope for Xap... Ahem. You've got to pilot your purple sphere around shooting the baddies while leaving the goodies alone. The goodies are the little flat purple ones with the eyes, and the baddies are everything else.
When you first start a level, your ship will take a few seconds to appear. You can control where it will appear by moving the mouse pointer. You shoot by pressing the left mouse button, and a stream of bullets will shoot out in the direction of the mouse cursor.
Pressing the right mouse button causes the sphere to move towards your cursor.
Shields are activated by pressing the left shift key, and smart bombs by pressing the ctri key.
All this sounds complex, and it is. Just watch the intro screen for a fuller explanation, and a list of aliens.
I. I -I i ¦ ' I H .X | 1 | . I • safe distance when loosing
either rockets of grenades or you'll kill yourself.
Hint: on the LoHaG level, go to the left and right of the screen before descending the slope to find rockets and grenades.
Move around a lot and kill things - be the best strategy.
That seems to TOOLS OF THE TRADE Handy and useful tools of the trade. On the right you can see a bucket full of green stuff which is in fact a bucket of rockets and a packing case which is simply, erm, packed with hand grenades.
The illustrations bottom right show (left) four grenades ready for use (just click on the grenade icon) and (right) 10 rockets ready for use - just dick on those as well. To fire either rockets of grenades, hold down the right mouse button and then click the left one. Make sure that you're at a Another Blitz classic.
Another stonking example of how good Blitz Basic games can be. Caffeine Free is a horizontal shoot-em-up featuring a bizarre array of incoming nasties. To make things trickier your ship's also hampered by the forces of gravity.
There are plenty of bonuses and power-ups like Anti Grav and Hot Shot to keep you going.
The on-screen display gives your current energy level - collide with too many baddies and you have to start all over again - and a little black box shows the currently held power-up. The game's controlled by the usual up down, left right and Fire joystick moves or with the keyboard.
Invest in a pair of stout Government-approved underpants. You're going to need them in the alien-crazed world of Caffeine Free.
The cute little blue aliens just want to lead a happy and peaceful life, so it's a good job you're here to blast them out of their complacency.

Computer Trade Weekly's analysis of the market shows CD32 software now holds a 23.3 per cent stake of the total CD software market. This compares very well
with the MegaCD. Which has been on sale since April and the PC CD-ROM which accounts for just 28.5 per cent of the market.
Since CD32 has only five games actually on sale at the time of writing (2oof.
Sleepwalker. Pinball Fantasies. Robocod and Doeneration). This performance is nothing short of miraculous. But with Morph. Overkill. Alfred Chicken. American Football. Gulp!, Total Carnage. Ryder Cup Golf. Trolls. Whales Voyage and Sensible Soccer 92193 all out soon, we can expect to see the Mega-Seedy in a distant second place by Christmas.
ACORN TALK CRAP!
LET ME TELL you about a recent presentation made by the folk at Commodore: the firm's guests were the great and the good of the European software development community. The idea was to impress upon them the potential of Commodore's new generation CD32. Remember that fact - it might prove difficult to grasp a little later.
The centrepiece of the get together was a presentation by Commodore's UK managing director. David Pleasance.
Unfortunately. Mr Pleasance had to battle against mumbled conversations and heckling. Even more unfortunately, the sins were committed by his boss. Medi Ali, from Commodore US.
Mr Ali, presumably, was there to add weight to the occasion.
What he actually brought according to many of those publishers present was a bad attitude, and what he left behind was a very nasty taste in the mouth.
As well as making life difficult for Mr Pleasance by so publicly undermining his authority (one publisher told me the exhibition was so cringe-worthy that they actually blushed on his behalf at one stage), Mr Ali also upset at least one of the publishers (publishers who had. Remember, been invited to the conference and had taken the time and trouble to attend) in a more direct way.
One of those present asked Mr Pleasance how many A1200s had been sold. Although the conference was about CD*2, the question was relevant because the technology in both products is so similar that development costs can be shared between the two formats. Also. CD drives will be available for the A1200.
Mr Pleasance. Sadly, did not have such basic information to hand. But fear not Mr Ali was there to intervene with the perfect answer: "The A1200 has sold hundreds and thousands of units and that is all you need to know," he informed the audience.
Right that's that cleared up then. Green light for all those Amiga projects. No need to worry about investing time and money in a format that has sold hundreds and thousands of units. Details such as in which countries these units have been sold were not deemed important enough to divulge. It's probably a good job, however, as Commodore don't seem to have much of a grip on the state of play in some European territories.
At one stage during the conference, a representative from a company called Leader introduced his firm as the Italian distributor of CD32 and revealed that the machine would be shipped in the near future "when software support increases".
Mr Ali seemed rather surprised by this. He was under the impression that the CD32 was already on sale In Italy and was most perturbed to leam otherwise. He proceeded to berate the poor man from Leader, informing him that if the firm did not get CD32 moving through the channels pretty damn sharpish.
Commodore could be looking for a new Italian distributor.
Piss-up and breweries, dear readers, piss-up and breweries.
There are a number of worrying implications that this charming little vignette throws up. The first is the huge question mark over the communication skills of a company that doesn't give vital sales information to supposed software 'partners'. You also have to wonder about the position of a company that daims hundreds of thousands of sales but then isn't sure of where its machines have or haven't been launched.
It's also rather worrying that Commodore found out about the Italian cock-up in such a public forum and then felt no qualms about having an extremely public row about it. But above and beyond all this, is the attitude that underlies the comment "hundreds and thousands of units and that is all you need to know".
Commodore need as much support from as many publishers as possible. You wouldn't have guessed it from the attitude of this particular charm school drop out. If s important to point out that building bridges with the software community has been a speciality of Commodore UK for some years. The current boss, Mr Pleasance, is one of the foremost exponents of the art and knows how rewarding good relationships with publishers can be.
Mr Ali's River Kwai Construction Company approach to bridge building can't help his cause. If Mr Ali ever wants to know how many software titles a publisher is developing for CD32, the machine that will make or break his company, he shouldn't be surprised if he's told: "Sod all - and that's all you need to know".
AMIGA FORMAT CAM exclusive* reveal the first details of the new Wordworth 3 package which is due for release early next year.
Wordworth 3 has been significantly improved to keep up with rising expectations of Amiga serious software. Apart from adding more features, and improving printing speed. Digita have done considerable work on the user interface.
The redesigned front end will lx- familiar to Wordworth 2 users (and there will be lots more of them, now that it’s included in the Desktop Dynamite pack), and offers increased control to users.
The interface follows the Workbench :1 guidelines, but goes a step further by- adding a few features previously unseen on the Amiga. Among these are editable popup gadgets and font-sensitive requesters which will be familiar to Mac users, and are a welcome addition to the Amiga.
The 'modeless object inspectors’ enable users to have the information lx x active and still lx- able to edit objects on the document, something even Mac word processors can't offer. Our favourite feature of the new look Wordy is the user-editable toolbar. This is effectively the main control panel, and it can be arranged either down the side, or across the page. It COMMODORE HAVE BEEN granted an injunction against Acorn, preventing them from using their promotional video The Home Computer Minefield.
The video purports to assist in selecting a home computer for complete familv use. But is little more than a thinly disguised knocking campaign against the Amiga. First it looks at the Archimedes.
Amiga. Atari. Macintosh. PC. Mega Drive, and SNES as games machines, and all pass with living colours.
The next test is how the machines handle serious applications and business software. The SNES and Megadrive are immediately and not surprisingly ejected, but scandalously the Atari and the Amiga are also eliminated at this stage.
It’s not like us to defend the Atari, but how mans recording studios use an Archimedes'- As for the Amiga, look at the Wordworth 3 preview- (above) to see how lar Amiga applications software has come.
Acom's pathetic knocking campaign dtx-s no credit to their powerful machine.
Such advertising is usually the mark of an underdog - alter all. Who would want to be compared to something that was trulv less capable than your product.?
All the machines mentioned in the comparison are verv good at what they do.
But only one of them hits verv little software available for it.
We'll leave you to make up your own minds about which one that is.
In our vi«w the Acorn video treats the Amiga unfairly.
Is also a floating window, so it can lx- j oM- lion wherever the user prefers.
Font support is enhanced bv the addition ofTruetype fonts to the existing Agfa.
PostScript and Amiga font support.
Digita are most proud, and rightly so.
Of the two new features. DigiSense and TextEffects. DigiSense is an auto correction mode which performs simple typographical checks as you tvpe. So. Transpositions (typing 'the' as 'hie', for example) are corrected as soon as you press the spare bar. TextEffects provides users with a series of special typographical styles which can lx- applied to text to make documents more attractive.
At their most simple these effects enable you to perform functions such as attaching text lo a line, or placing text at an angle. At iheir most complex, lexi can be spiralled, waved or pul in a siar shape.
Another innovation for Wordworih 3 is (he move lo framc-orieniaied formatting, this means lhal lexi and pictures are placed in boxes which can be moved around the page independently. This is the technique used by most DTP packages, and allows great flexibility for changing tile page layout.
All in all. Wordworih 3 seems even more powerful than its predecessor, so does it represent Digita's attempt lo cross over into DTP? Managing Director Jcremv Rihll insists not. “We're really going back lo the SOLID GOLD GAMES ACTION!
A STUNNING AMIGA Christmas games bundle from Silica Distribution Limited is now on sale at shops throughout the country.
The Chaos Pack, which follows the success of last year's SDL Zool Pack, contains four Amiga Formal Gold games |Chaos Engine, Syndicate, Pinball Fantasies and Nick Faldo's Golf) worth a total of £125.
The pack comes in two versions, one for the AGA machines (the A1200 and A4000) and one for the non-AGA A600.
If you buy your Amiga at the recommended retail price, you get the Chaos Pack for free, and if you buy an Amiga at a discount price, you can still pick up the pack at an attractive discount.
So, if you pay the recommended retail price of £299 for an A1200 you' get the pack included for free. But if you buy an A1200 at a discount price of £250, you'll probably be able to get the games bundle for about £30 (last year's Zool Pack was frequently available for around £30).
Silica Distribution Limited press officer Andy Leaning said: "We wanted to ensure that dealers could offer customers the best in Amiga games. We looked around for some time before choosing the games to ensure they were the very best.
"The fact that all the games in the bundle are Amiga Format Gold winners this year was a key factor in this decision."
Basics of word processing.
We're not even calling it a word publisher, or a document processor like we did with the original Wordworth," he said.
"We don't want people to get confused. We want them to know that Wordworih is the best program if they just want to write letter. But if they need the extra power, they've got that too.
We've concentrated on the text side of things with TextKITects and DigiSense to make this a more powerful word processor."
It's ironic that at a time when Acorn arc- claiming the Amiga can’t run applications software (see story on these pages).
Digita ate about to bring out one of the most accomplished applications we've yet seen.
There will be a demo of Wordworih 3 on our February Covcrdisk.
If you want a copy of Wordworth 2. See our Mail Order section on page 226. Or call Digita International on 0395 270273.
Amiga Formal editor Marcus Dyson was so impressed by the pack that he gave permission for the Amiga Format Gold logo to appear on the packaging.
The Chaos Pack features full colour packaging, and each game has full documentation. Strictly speaking retailers are not allowed to sell the pack separately, but this didn't stop many from doing so last year, and we expect the same will happen again.
Last year SDL came up with the fantastic Zool Pack for the Christmas market... If you can get your hands on it.. do!

38. Now it's back, ond it's more mega than ever. The new version,
called Mega mouse 400, is now 400 DPI, and costs a mere
£14.95. If you need a new mouse it's not easy to find better
for cheaper.
Call Golden Image on 081-365 1102.
GREAT GRAPHICS It's often difficult for Amiga owners to get their graphics masterpieces output in high-quality colour. Max Graphics in Cardiff (0222 522332) can output large images, but they have an optimum viewing distance of over six feet, which is great for posters, but not so good for reports. If you want high-quality smaller output, the Times Drawing Office in Maddox Street, London may have a solution. They can handle most Amiga graphics formats including JPEG, and the output we have seen is extremely good, so give them a call on 071-629 5070.
GET THE PICTURE Galaxy Graphics of Swansea are offering three disks full of hi-res overscan 16 colour images, for a mere £14.95. The pictures, called Media Backgrounds, are intended for presentation and video use, and have no transparent colour. The images range from keyboards and cameras to videos and textures. Call Norman Harris on 0792 290998 for more information.
SFII BARGAIN US Gold are releasing Streetfighter II on the Kixx budget label at the bargain price of £14.99. What more need be said? Perhaps just that it's out on December 3rd and, since the £27.99 original is still at number 32 in the charts, it's a good offer.
Ft AGA AMOS IS CURRENTLY caking a battering from Acid's Blitz 2 in the popularity stakes. But news that Francois Lionet, the father of AMOS, is soon to begin work on an AGA version of AMOS could balance things out a little.
Despite recent claims from will amos make a comeback with Ftlrepress that further AMOS the release o« an AGA program?
Developments have effectively been shelved. Francois has exclusively announced to Amiga Format that he has no intention of leaving AMOS coders in the lurch.
Francois is currently putting the finishing touches to the Europress PC product Click and Flat, and will start work on die AGA version of AMOS Pro after Christmas. The new version will enable AMOS programmers to open lull 256-colour screens, use 256-colour bobs, create AGA rainbow effects and olfer support for the 16 million-colour palette.
Francois explains the task ahead of him: "A lot of the code in AMOS Pro is very old. So I II have to write much of it again in order for it to work with the AGA chipset. Once Click and Play is finished. AMOS Pm AGA will be my number one priority."
For this reason it is unlikely that that AMOS Pm AGA will be a free update to existing AMOS Pro users, as previous updates have been. In order to recoup the high costs of the development lime, existing users will probably have to pay an upgrade fee. A rather reasonable £20 is being considered at present.
On a slightly different AMOS note, an upgrade to the slightly buggv AMOS Pro compiler will be available soon. And this will Ik- free to registered users.

WHO SELLS MOST GAMES?
Quiz time. Who sells the most computet games in the UK? Last time we checked It was. Surprisingly. Boots (the not-sochemist). With national chains such as WH Smith and John Menzies groping for a larger share and music stores Virgin and HMV constantly extending their games coverage.
But now the biggest Independent games retailer Is Future Zone, who have lust zoomed to number one status by opening their 31st store. They reckon they are well ahead ol schedule to hit their target ol opening their 40th store by Christmas.
HANNA-8ARBERA. THE catloon makers famous for Tom and Jerry and The Fllntstones, now have their own Amiga animation package. Published by Empire, the Hanna-Barbera Animation Workshop has a straightforward.
Icon-controlled Interface that they reckon Is simple enough for kids as young as four to use.
It's a paint and animation package with which you can draw animated sprites and drop them over a background that you've also drawn, with eight colours for each. You can also connect a digitiser to grab In drawings, but you're supposed to do soundtracks on a cassette player, so there are no sound facilities.
Perhaps the best part ol the deal Is that addon discs with stills, animation and clipart will be available so that users can colour and animate "their tavourlte cartoon characters", and these will also come with an audio soundtrack. -We’ve got the rights to use every CUTE HYPE GOES WILD FURRY CREATURES STARRING In platform games is The Thing this Christmas season, and competition for press attention Is Intense.
Sega lead the way with several hedgehogs, but Ocean, in particular, are bombarding magazines and newspapers with spurious press releases and photos concerning Mr Nutz the squirrel, star of their colourful platformer due for release In January.
The latest press release concerns Nutz s allegedly shady past, and he Is photographed leaving a London nightclub. Hmm.
Meanwhile Brian the Uon, a 404evel plat- former from Martin Edmondson of Shadow ol the Beast fame, has been put on hold until after Christmas because the wildlife competition Is too Intense. It's due out from Psygnosls on 21st January at £29.99. Contact Ocean on 061-832 6633 and Psygnosls on 071-709 5755.
GOLD AT WINTER OLYMPICS US COLD WILL release their new Winter Olympics game to coincide with the start of the skating, skiing and bobsleighing extravaganza in Lillehammer.
Norway on February 12th.
Most of the Olympic events arc realistically portrayed in the game, called Winter Olympics, and to stand a chance of winning, the player has to adopt the correct stance and read the terrain in skiing events such as the Downhill. Super G. Slalom and Giant Slalom.
Character, so we can do Top Cat, Whacky Paces, the whole lot," eays Empire's Carol Nudds. The program will cost £49.99 and should be out right now. For further Information contact Empire on 081-343 7337.
CORE, THAT'S CHEAP!
IN A SURPRISE move renowned software house Core Design hove launched o new budget label, to be known by the slightly unlikely name of Corkers.
The outfit used to just moke games for other people, but they've been publishing their own stuff for a while now, so they hove a back catalogue of good games which they ore releasing at bargain prices First up on the Corkers label is a collection of four games (Chuck Rock, Corporation, War Zone and Torvak the Warrior) which are available at a mere £9.99 each. All four games should be out now. For further information contact Corkers on 0332 297797.
Oqp Lillehammer’94 The four-disk game uses visuals of the official Winter Olympics, including the logos, the medal designs, and incorporates all the ceremonies. What's more, you can sneer at Sega and Nintendo owners by telling them that all the sprite animation for their versions was created on an Amiga by Barry Armstrong Design, at Barry's studio in Cheshire!

the Seaquest Deep Submergence Vehicle, chief submarine of
the UEO.
The Seaquest is equipped with a variety of smaller subs. One of the Seaquest's hyper-reality probes boldly goes including this rather cute undersea tractor. Where no Hyper-reality probe has gone before.
MORE THAN 19 million Americans watched the pilot of Steven Spielberg's Seaquest DSV a couple of months ago. Now, ITV are showing the series on Sunday evenings, and 9.2 million people watched the pilot episode. The show is a cross between Voyage To The Bottom of the Sea and Star Trek and follows the adventures of a bold crew of clean cut heroes who cruise around in a submarine righting wrongs.
But what makes Seaquest of particular interest to you is that the special effects for the outside shots of the submarine were all produced using Amigas and Lightwave, the ray-tracing program that comes with the Video Toaster.
Turning to the Toaster Most sci-fi shows (such as Star Trek) use miniature models to create the special effects shots, but the special effects people at Amblin Imaging wanted to produce the kind of effects for the show which would be either too expensive or impossible to do with models. So they turned to the Toaster.
"We sold the show to the networks on the basis of some conceptual art and some computer graphics produced on the Amiga," says Taylor Kurosaki, facility manager of Amblin. "The network commissioned 22 episodes of the series, which is completely unprecedented."
Of course, producing images that look this realistic isn't very easy. The main model of the Seaquest for instance, has over 70,000 polygons, and many of the other models used in the show are equally complex.
Each animator at Amblin has two Amigas (they mainly use A2000s) to enable them to work on one shot while the other is rendering a test image. The submarine itself began life as a series of sketches by Jim Lima, the art director and conceptual artist for the show. From these, he produced a clay model and the animators produced the Lightwave model.
To make sure that the images looked realistic, Amblin called in as an adviser noted underwater scientist Dr Robert Ballard, the man who found the Titanic To produce the quality of images seen on this page, Amblin set up a very powerful facility. "We have around 70 Amigas, including 10 that act as playback machines on the set for producing screen displays," says Taylor Kurosaki.
"We were originally only going to be involved with Seaquest, but now we're also going to be produce graphics for other Amblin TV shows."
Amblin can produce around three and a half minutes of computer generated footage per week, which in Spielberg special effects terms isn't bad.
" Jurassic Park had around six and a half minutes of special effects in it' says Taylor. "That took them over two years to produce. We had six and a half minutes of effects in our two-hour pilot show, and we did this in three months."
Changing the ways off TV All the Amigas at Amblin are connected together on a network, and most of the rendering is done in a Render Farm arrangement which means that each Amiga is given a single frame of an animation to render. Once these are completed, the results are transferred on to digital video tape for the final editing process of combining the computer generated images with the other film.
Amblin seem to be happy with the Toaster and Lightwave, "it's changing the way network TV in the US is done," says Taylor. "It means that effect- based series that could not get off the ground before for financial reasons are now possible." O FOR A FEW Since the inception of 24-bit graphics on the Amiga, it has always been one of the most exciting areas of Amiga graphics. In no time at all, many companies equipped their software with 24-bit support.
Now that the standard Amigas have the ability to display at near true-colour standards, the importance and popularity of 24-bit graphics has never been higher. But it is still a confusing field for many. Even those with the knowledge of the software and hardware necessary to handle 24- bit graphics sometimes have difficulty sourcing objects and textures for their images.
In order to assist graphics enthusiasts in their search for fonts, objects, textures, images and so on. Gordon Keenan and John Campbell formed the 24-Bit Club. The club's loose association of Amiga graphics enthusiasts includes DTP users, 3D buffs, animators and graphic artists. In fact anyone with an interest in Amiga graphics.
As Gordon readily admits, the dub's location (it's based in Glasgow) is a hindrance when it comes to club meetings, which regularly attract around 20-30 members. Not a bad figure in itself, but when you consider that the club has more than 2,500 members scattered around the ORE globe, it shows that not everyone can make the trip to Scotland to attend.
Nevertheless, members are admirably catered for by the club's excellent magazine Power User. The A5 magazine has features on graphics techniques, interviews with prominent figures in the Amiga graphics world and reviews of the latest software and hardware for 24-bit enthusiasts. The club welcomes submissions for the magazine from all its members.
Cim The 24-bit Club not only acts as an interchange for views, tips and ideas between members, but it also offers members an extensive library of files on PD disk, including an impressive array of textures and objects. These files are available to non-members, but the £20 membership fee carries considerable benefits in terms of discounts. The dub also acts as a central registration point for shareware fees for 3D models from such luminaries as Carmen Rizzola, who created the fabulous Enterprise model used on AF49‘s cover.
We would recommend dub membership to all our readers hoping to get the most from last month's Imagine Coverdisk. 24-Bit Club, 6 Skirsa Square. Floor 1, Glasgow G23 5DW.

Worst moment in 1993 This has got to be three o'clock in the morning in Ostend. Belgium. At this moment
myself and Andrew Braybrook along with Marcus Dyson and Steve Bradley of Amiga Format had been waiting six hours for the organisers of the OZ computer show to arrive and take us to a nice comfortable hotel with food and warmth. It was at this moment we heard that our host was tucked up in bed. Not stuck in a traffic jam that had brought the roads into Ostend to a standstill for four hours. He could pick us up at 9am in the morning if we could wait another six hours!
Year we go.
If you were one of the world's top Amiga game developers, what would you want for Christmas? We asked some of the A- - »* best people in the games bizness how their years have gone, and what they’re hoping for in their stockings... MEVLUT DINC, VIVID IMAGE 1993 could prove to be the most important year for Commodore's history. A1200s are still selling, but Commodore's success really lies with the CD”. It's an excellent piece of hardware and I hope it succeeds.
We will be doing our bit with a CD” version of Second Samurai.
I believe the software has to be even better than the hardware to help it sell.
Commodore must invest time and money in the software publishers to produce software that makes good use Best moment in 1993 This was last week when Commodore invited Graftgold along with other developers to Commodore to increase developer relations. They are even going to sort out my monitors and let us come to their developers' conference and register us for a modest fee. It's like Christmas already! Seriously, though, this is an excellent move by Commodore and much welcomed at Graftgold.
Best album For Andrew this one's easy - he had a calendar on the wall whith all the days marked to the release of the new Rush album Counterparts. Excitement was high, but alas no album in the store on D-day.
Luckily it was only a day late and sounds of Rush have been emanating from his office ever since.
Ian Wallington, our new Amiga superstar, is a Saxon fan and votes Forever Free. I'm still playing the Def Leppard album I got last Christmas.
Favourite Amiga games It's been a busy year and there's not been a lot of time to play other people's games. Bitmaps' Chaos Engine was the favourite until my son Mark borrowed the company copy and an A500 so he could try it in the holidays and it disappeared.
Favourite film Jurassic Park gets our vote for outstanding effects, although Andrew has not seen it yet.
Favourite book Programmers don't have time to read! Andrew's into T. Pratchett for long ferry trips and waiting around in terminals and the like.
Favourite letter The one that came last week with some money from the Mirrorsoft adminstrator.
What I want lor Christmas... howabout an AGA-based Amiga with CD drive built in that is really cheap and has a keyboard serial port and a controller with heaps of buttons?
SIMON ARMSTRONG, ACID SOFTWARE What? Santa has already- started to deliver them?
That's awesome! CD. Eh?
Wow! If kids can't copy the software, holy smoke, they will have to buy it! That means not only will we have to pay less for manufacturing games (no stupid oversized boxes and only one disc instead of three disks) we'll probably sell heaps more.
Of the hardware. The developers in this country produce top-quality original products and Commodore must start investing time and money in them.
My highlights of 1993 Favourite game: Second Samurai Favourite serious software: Word for Windows (sorry, I use it on my PC!)
Favourite film: Reservoir Dogs Favourite book: I can't read Favourite record: Get Back, Peter Gabriel Best moment for the Amiga: The launch of Amiga CD” Worst moment for the Amiga: Too many different Amigas!
OK, in that case all I want is for heap of people to buy simon °* Acid il ,he man b«hind idmerks and the Blitz Bssic language that produced it.
These new CD machines so (x mmodore don t go bust and we have a nice big market to sell all the cool stuff we have planned for the next year. Come on Santa, you can do it - even if the kids want ajap console, slip them a CD52 instead.
The only other thing I really want is for Skidmarks to be release on schedule with all die off-road tracks we've been working on so we can start the Formula One extensions. A 68060 based Amiga would certainly help with all die rav-tracing we're doing (Santa, you still listening?) And the rumoured new version of Imagine is definitely needed. I also want a big Super-MIS TV to play CD32 games on with a 4000Watt stereo so the neighbours think there is a speedway in die neighbourhood when we start playtesting Skidmarks,2.
KEITH SMITH, MILLENNIUM Scene: Outside a top department store in the West End of I cm don.
It's the first week of December and a light dusting of snow from the Jirst of many entirely practical bliizards is coining the bonnet of my chauffeur-driven limo. The Tour O’Clock Sews is about to come on and I sit joyfully listening to a compilation of Millennium game soundtracks.
The phone rings. It's the Telegraph. Thev're trying lo get an inside track on the next big product that will send the Millennium share price spinning into orbit. The dotation was five times oversubscribed and tin- company's name is on the lips of the top city movers and shakers.
Digbins. My chauifeur and minder, is smiling wryly into the rear-view mirror as he eatvvigs on my conversation... “Yes. I understand that this would boost circulation, but what's your offer?" The reply squeaks from the receiver.
"I'm sorry, but this news is confidential. You can't expect me to show favour to one publication just to get a page of coverage."
I place my hand over the mouthpiece and snigger back to Digbins.
"OK. Look, you have a word with your boss and get back to me."
I place the phone, one of three lines, back on its cradle.
“OK. Digbins. Let's spend some money!" I shouted manfully.
"Let's show these sockets what shopping is!"
With a tolerant sntile and an arched eyebrow. Digbins turns the ignition anti the powerful live-litre engine throbs to life, l it- leans back. “Your wife is already doing that, sir."
Scene: Inside store. As walk along the aisles, an assortment of perfumery gals are trying to get ms autograph. hand them a pre-pnnlcd card that Digbins obtained from a machine in an underground tube station. They seem to be immensely grateful.
I turn to my escort. “Digbins. I think that I should go and see Santa's grotto. I mean, we are in the youth market and I want to see what the word on the street is. Where is it?"
"We were parked in it." He replied.
"Digbins. Have I told you about my gift? You see, I have special powers and if you don't watch out, you're tired."
“Very droll, sir."
We continue to the third floor where there is a queue for Santa's grotto. At least 50 families are eagerly awaiting the time when their pride and joy can sit on the lap of an elderly actor, breathe in beery fumes and walk away with a tov. I approach a kindly ell.
"Sense me. Can you help me out here? I'm in the computer games industry and. As a leading edge developer, we need to know what the kids want. Do you mind if I jump the queue and quiz your Santa on the latest demands?” I show her my card and smile as Digbins leans menacingly over her.
"Just a moment, sir.” FADE to Scene: Outside a rather unconvincing cave entrance though don V know quite how this would translate on to radio)... I stagger out ol the grotto under the influence of a large intake of whisky vapour.
"Bigdins, fret not. I'll get a bloody knighthood for this!
Get me down to Commodore quick! I've got to see David Pleasance now." In the limo I call Commodore and arrange a meeting for fipm.
I Scene: Commodore HQ, 7. 30pm that niglil "Mr Smith. Mr Pleasance will see you now." Continued*- Keith Smith likes bouncy fish best of all.
A recent photo shows Keith and friend... Favourite single: Fall at your feet - Crowded House Favourite pudding: Treacle with custard Keith Smith has written the bizarre play-type thing on the right... TOBY SIMPSON, MILLENNIUM Christmas ditties by Toby Simpson, Lead Programmer for Millennium, author of Diggers for CD32 and A1200.
I'd like Commodore to be working on a new generation of high-end Amigas, not letting them continue to slide further and further behind the PC. I hope they are, and they hurry up with a CD32 compatible drive for the A1200 and A4000!
My real wish, though, is it would be nice to have some high-standard word processors, spreadsheets and other productivity tools which didn't look embarrassed next to Windows programs on the PC. Let's hope loads of amazing games come out on the CD32. Millennium are certainly working hard on a new generation of CD software.
Best Amiga moments of the year: The CD32 release turning out to be OK. And selling well. And the UK Developers Conference, where I discovered Resolve and someone asked me for my autograph!
Favourite game: Frontier Favourite book: Rama Revealed.
By Arthur C Clarke The follow-up to the mould-breaking Elite. Frontier Favourite dinosaur: Stegosaurus - has the Millennium staff totally absorbed. Generally underrated, but great.
ARCHER MACLEAN I haven't seen a load of films this year, although I did gel hold of an NTSC version of The Jungle Book, and bought the letterbox version of Terminator 2 - in Dolby surround sound with a monster TV it's quite something.
I haven't seen Jurassic Park but I am still pissed oil that 1 came up with a dinosaur game design three years ago that was full of fast, smooth animation, yet all the publishers I approached were totally uninterested. Now they are falling over themselves rushing out any old crap with a passing resemblance to a dinosaur in it. As for books. I don't read much but I watched Madonna get away with her sex book last year, so I have been working on a join the dots porn Itook. Because it’s not pom until you have filled it in.
And lin going to call it... ‘Pencillration'.
My musical tastes are so varied as to Ik- undefinable, but one jungle beat that refuses to get our of my head is Connected by the Stereo Mcis. As for games, the most impressive tiling I've had a go on was a huge six-player arcade game called Oalaxia in London's Trocadero. Simple, but mightily impressive for the £30 I must have put in.
Favourite album: Squeeze's Some Fantastic Place. It just goes to prove that really talented musicians can turn their hand to any style Favourite book: The Van by Roddy Doyle.
I read it in one miserable cold day in Dublin two years ago and haven't stopped laughing since.
I slop Digbins beating up the security guard. He has done 110 wrong - it merely entertained nte while 1 waited.
We enter David's phrsh office. I'm not saying it's big.
But on the way in I pass Bono packing up his gear from last night's extravagant client bash. It is larger than my office, but only because my en suite is in a separate room.
David is relaxing in a hot tub. A glass of chilled pink champagne by his side.
"Alt. (here you are David. I could hardly see you among all those bubbles." I coolly say.
"Let's get straight to the point. Smith. I haven't got time to waste, you know. I'nt a very busy man. Close the door, will you? There's a hell of a draught around my overflow.
This had better.be important, time and money and all that."
I flushed with anger. "It's important enough to interrupt me when I was in the middle of purchasing some luxury leather goods. 1 want to know what's going on. Santa told me that he was delivering A1200s and C.DS!s this Christmas, and quite a few of them too."
"Absolutely, Smith. I've done a deal with the man himself and by Christmas morning people all over the country will be unwrapping dirty great big boxes containing our wonderful product - and nothing can stop me now!
HA! HA! HA!"
JON HARE, SENSIBLE SOFTWARE Dear Father Amigamas, please can I have for Christmas: 1 Cannon Fodder at Number one in the charts 2 Lots of royalties 3 The Sensible Software 'WAR' video 4 A penis extension kit 5 A penis Highlights of the year 1 My five-year-old daughter's first poem 2 Norwich qualifying for Europe 3 Doing the WAR' video 4 Buying a nice house (thank you. SertsiSoccer) Bfrom Commodore we would like them to: 1 Sell hard drives as standard with all A1200s so that developers can aim their products at hard drive users only.
2 Bundle the A1200 with hard drive and monitor for much less than a PC system.
This seems to be the only way to ensure I thought for a while as he climbed out of the hot tub and padded gracefully over to his walk-in wardrobe. I Ie opened it and lifted out two carefully wrapped garments as I followed him across the marble floor.
“What do you think. Smith - red or blue?” "Can I be honest. David?" 1 asked. He nodded “I don't think that you suit a cocktail dress. How about that suit?"
"1 suppose so" he conceded.
“So the biggest question is; just what products can we.
The mighty Millennium, have ready for Christmas and the New Year? We've got HrutaI Fmlball in November, now that's a game and a half. Blood, laughs - the whole shooting match. Diggrrs is now out on the CD52 and A1200, and that's so big it should keep them busy until March..." Suddenly it hit me like slug from a '45 right through the brain. James Pond!A third version for the New Year!
"David. I have to go. There's no time to waste."
"It's just down the corridor on the leli.” “What?"
"The little boy's room" "David, this is no time to be discussing latrines. There's work to be done."
FADE to Scene: in the bach of the limo. WWF Wrestling is being beamed live into the ear and the female stars of (iats are with me in full costume enjoying the champagne and Handy Savage.
Continued Nick & Jon Court, THE DOME Most wanted pressie from Santa has to be a machine which can play Formula One (.rand Prix faster and more detailed than a high-end PC.
Our favourite game has to be Formula One (except for Hob's Had Day, but we should not mention our own product - at £25.99 published by Psvgnosis and at a computer shop Formula One Grand Prix - they're completely mad near you now!) About it. Or just completely mad. O* course... Our favourite record just has to be one minute. 15.3 seconds at Mexico, although I managed a pretty decent lap time in Germany, and my time for France wasn't that bad. And the time in Belgium... Our very best moment for the Amiga during 1993 was when we took delivery of a brand spanking new A1200 which played Formula One
brilliantly (it also played Bob’s Had Day rather nicely, too. But we're unable to say anything about...). And the worst moment was when the man from Psvgnosis killed the A1200 two davs later.
That ground is not lost to the rival formats.
3 Realise they have a loyal following to which the CD3* should be aimed rather than at Nintendo and Sega users.
4 Invent a revolutionary anti-copying device to stop the thieves ripping off our games.
5 Convince the publishing community that the Amiga is not going to die and so avoid a self-fulfilling prophecy occurring.
Fave game of 1993: Scrabble on a board Fave film of 1993: Electric Pomo Hippopotamus Fave book of 1993: Diary of a Hippo Pervert Fave record of 1993: Lenny Kravitz's new one Fave hardware of 1993 My Zydec mouse CHARLES CECIL, REVOLUTION SOFTWARE Amiga ups and downs None really, but too much new nonstandard hardware to confuse the public and dilute the developer.
“Michael, this is Defcon 1. Real important. There will be some product out for the Amiga around Christmas, but what games are going to be on sale straight after? None!
So I was thinking..." FADE to Scene: opens in massive press conference hastily arranged at the Albert Hall. It's packed and thousands of pasty- faced journos are stuffing free sandwiches into their jackets. I look around and realise that they are hanging on my every word. If I do a runner now. We’rr in trouble big.
Can th* lad Smith uvt the world with his simple fishy ruse?
RICHARD EDDY, CODEMASTERS Hurrah! For 'ti* Chrimbo! Right what do I want in my stocking from Commodore? To keep home computing alive, if s really important that's exactly where our next generation of programmers is coming from. You can't exactly get a lot of experience programming on a Super Nintendo (not enough buttons, y'see).
So. Commodore - push the point that the Amiga also opens a whole new world for users beyond what the consoles can offer. And, aspiring Amiga programmers, send your game or routine demos to David Thompson, Project Manager, at the usual Codemasters address.
Best thing about this year's yuletide season? Micro Machines (surely the most utterly playable two-player head-to-head racing game ever to grace your disk drive).
Ah, what a year it has been.
Highlights have included Codemasters (and their American chums) smashing Nintendo in the courts and being the first UK game publisher ever to have a whole TV show devoted to one game (Cosmic Spacehead, a Sega arcade adventure coming soon on Amiga, was the theme for a Central TV-produced show, aired in October). Bad point of the year is, as always, piracy. You sad bunch of parasites - y'know, why not Micro Machines - OK, we shouldn't let him plug come round and steal the bloody his own game, but it's sooo good I programmer's furniture too?
What I would like Commodore to deliver for Christmas: Apart from the heads of certain high- ranking Commodore international officials mounted on sharp sticks, there's only one thing I want from Commodore - the near mythical CD” expansion drive for the A1200.
Favourite game: Well, I don't get to play as many Amiga games as I used to, but there are three classics which stand out in my mind - Pinball Fantasies. Diggers, and my favourite of the year - Superfrog from Team 17.
Favourite serious software: This is difficult. I use so many packages day-to-day. And many of them are excellent. Special mentions go to Directory Opus. SAS C 6.3 and Art Department Professional. My award for the most fun and easy to use software goes to Lightwave 3D - the 3D rendering package bundled with the Video Toaster - pure fun.
Favourite hardware: Special mentions to the V-Lab YC (the best video digitiser for the Amiga) and the incredibly fast Toshiba XM3401B CD-ROM drive, but my favourite of the year is the Sunrise AD512 16-bit CD quality direct-to-disk sound sampling board. A bit pricey at over £1,000, but well worth the money - the quality is absolutely perfect.
6 For everyone to go out and buy the brilliant Beneath the Steel Sky - the excellent graphic adventure from Revolution!
Favourite game: Alone in the Dark (for presentation rather than gameplay) Favourite film: Jurassic Park (pity about the story, though) Favourite record: Any of the REM singles.
Best moments: I can't really think of any!
Worst moment: The news of Commodore's financial difficulties, of course.
Favourite film: Jurassic Park, despite butchering the plot beyond recognition Favourite book: Trojan by James Folett Favourite record: Elemental by Tears for Fears Worst moment for the Amiga in 1993: The continual announcements of the departure of some of the best people from the Commodore Amiga development team.
JOLYON RALPH, ALMATHERA "Please forgive the urgent nature of the press conference, but we felt that as a forward, leading-edge company, that we should warn you of a forthcoming product that will cause such a ntsh to the stores, you won't know about it. The retail industry has never had it so good. The traditional post-Christmas blues will now be replaced by a psychedelic rainbow kind of effect with cheese on the moon..." I was losing it - and it showed. The front row began to shift nervously in their seats and my suit felt much too big. I was dying.
"James Pond ?.r I blurted out. .An immediate change in the audience's mood. Eyebrows arched and pens twitched, poised over scruffy little notepads, with the noteable exception of the staff of Amiga Formal who all had Apple Newtons - typical.
"We're going to release James Pond 3 on all Amiga formats in the months of February and March next year. This game has already- been acclaimed as the best yet.
Over 140 levels, bigger, more animated sprites. Special equipment like a Fniit suit. Spring boots.
"He punches, jumps and he runs faster than any other platform character. He has always proved to be an outstanding success and this will undoubtedly mark him as the 'Sonic of the Amiga. So buy it!"
The crowd lept to their feet and cheered heartily.
Christmas had been saved by James Pond. Commodore were going to sell skip-loads of hardware and I felt pleased.
"David, can't we record something on Saturday? I'm rubbish in the morning. OK. Saturday, 3pm. Thanks, David. Say hello to the wife for me. No, not my wife, your wife.
How...?" The phone went dead.
I sat back in the sumptuous leather upholstery and caught Digbins grinning.
“What are you smirking at?"
"Oh, nothing, sir. It's just I couldn't help overhearing the problem earlier and while you were holding the press conference I took the liberty of buying a container-load of Commodore shares in anticipation of an increase in sales.
“You dolt! How much did you spend?"
"Oh, not much. It was with the change that you left in the ashtray. So in the worst case small losses, and in the best case we’ll make a mint."
“Digbins, you’re a genius. Take the rest of the day off as a token of my thanks. It'sjust as well I have large ashtrays..." fin FADE to Scene: opens up back in the limo driving to City Airport.
Digbins is humming a Carpenters single. I am, incredibly, on the phone talking to David Frost who wants me to appear on his Sunday morning show.

It's more like using a pen than a mouse, giving a more natural feel to your drawings.

© TRIFECTA Getting a little short on hard disk space? Why not add a few extra megabytes of very fast disk space by adding a SCSI 2 hard disk drive and interface to your machine.
PRICE £239 (80Mb) O VIDI AMIGA 12 Capturing the real world and saving it to your hard disk has never been easier than with this video digitiser. This gadget is more fun that you might imagine - it can take a video signal from a camera or VCR and convert the picture on your TV screen into an IFF file for printing out or using as a basis for your own pictures in Brilliance or Dpaint.
O CD TV It may not be state-of-the-art but it's still a 1Mb Amiga with CD-ROM drive, floppy disk drive, keyboard and mouse for an extremely good price. It can also be used as a CD-ROM drive on a big box Amiga with the PD ParNet software.

PRICE From £965 ? VAT Commodore 0628 770088 © MORPH PLUS If you’ve ever had a yen to transform a baby into an owl, or a car into a running horse, this could be the program for you. The powerful graphics package takes one image and smoothly transforms it into another - it's the technique used for many TV ads and in the Terminator 2 movie. Very weird and very wonderful.
PRICE © POWER SCANNER If you're involved in Desk Top Publishing, you'll know how useful it is to be able to scan illustrations or other printed images into your computer and include them in your documents.
£119 (mono) O WORDWORTH 2 Word processing gets serious! This powerful and easy to use program from Digita is definitely one of the finest word processors on the Amiga, though Version 3 is due early next year.

This latest version supports the AGA modes on the A1200 and A4000. In operation it's quite similar to Wordworth 2, so you don't need both!
O NICK VEITCH To complete the Amiga set-up for the serious Amiga user, why not add a Veitch? An excellent source of knowledge about the Amiga, but watch out for the excessive Guinness consumption and bad language.
£99.95 PRICE 1 Pt Guinness per Hour: 0225 442244

One of the classic Amiga games comes to the CD32- but remember it's also available on floppy disk at a bargain budget price.
PRICE £29.99 0223 844894 © POWER MOUSE The older Amiga mice were dreadful things, the mouse which comes with the A1200 still leaves something to be desired, and the CD32 doesn't come with a mouse at all. The Powermouse is smooth, with a 400dpi resolution.
PRICE © MOUSE MAT Give your mouse a life of ease with this Amiga Format mouse mat. It's emblazoned with the Amiga Format logo, it's flat with rounded comers and you can put your mouse on it.
£7.99 0458 73279 PRICE_ Future Publishing © ANALOGUE JOYSTICK Flight sims can be much more realistic with an analogue joystick: after all, real pilots don't use a Bug.
Aanalogue sticks also give much smoother, more realistic control because the amount your plane or car turns is proportional to the amount you move the 'stick by! This model sits easily in the hand, with the fire buttons in a comfortable position.

PIRACY: it's killing the industry" - so say all those who suffer from it and those who try to prevent it. But the pirates who actually break the law have their point of view too. Over the next four pages we let them all have their say... More than 50,000 illegal disks have been seized by FAST (Federation Against Software Theft) investigators in the past year. They have at least one new case of piracy every week and following a new prosecution initiative funded by ELSPA. They are now awaiting trial on 10 cases. We talked to leading investigator John Loader, who described how FAST came
about.
"It was set up in 1984 as a result of the computer industry lobbying parliament to get the law changed. The software industry pushed for the law to include software, the government said OK. But you'll have to set up your own watchdog to keep tabs on It So FAST was founded in the shape of one man - Bob Hay. The new Copyright Act of '88 actually made it a criminal offence to copy disks.'
Onment others can be dealt with in a magistrate's court where it carries a six month maximum sentence. But in practice, it doesn't happen often. The alternative is a £5,000 fine and or six months imprisonment in lower courts, or £5,000 with two years in Crown Court.
©: What do you feel about the way the law stands at the moment?
JL The punishments provided are adequate. I'd just like to see them deeper ranging. At the magistrates' court, although they can punish over six months, it is seldom used. But one of the things we try to do is make courts aware of what a problem it Is to the software industry... the Amiga is suffering very badly from piracy. You've only at the number of games released last year new games that are released this year.
Continued overleaf r THE AMIGA GAMES scene is dying. Like the Vic-20, the Sinclair Spectrum and the Atari Sts did before it.
But those machines all died out because they were made obsolete by newer and better machines like the Amiga. Users abandoned those machines in droves for the chance of owning a spanking new A500.
The Amiga, on the other hand, is still the world's most powerful and flexible home computer. The Amiga isn't losing users to a new super-machine - in fact the newest super- machine is an .Amiga, the A1200.
No. The .Amiga games scene is dying because some Amiga owners arc too selfish, and loo stupid, to do anything about it. The Amiga games scene is dying because piracy is so rife that software companies can't sell enough copies of most games to make them pay. Companies are abandoning the .Amiga in favour of the consoles because while cartridge piracy exists, it is infinitesimal when compared to piracy on the Amiga. The average Amiga game sells around 8,000 copies. There arc over 1,500,000 Amigas in the UK alone. This means your average game manages to sell to a mere half of one per cent of
all owners.
Pirates have long attempted to justify their actions by claiming that games arc too expensive. This may be true, but there is no chance of prices dropping while games are selling in such low quantities.
The fact that budget re-releases of games are pirated just as frequently as full-price product makes a mockery of this defence.
Pirates often claim that most games aren't any good. But if a game is no good, why pirate copy it? And the standard of Amiga games is as high or higher than that of the consoles - how many times do you spot the words a conversion of an Amiga game' in console mags? Many of the best and most original games came from the Amiga. Sure, some games are crap, but a quick flick through a reputable mag like Amiga Format's review pages will prevent anyone wasting money on a dog.
Some pirates claim that they can't afford games. This may he true, but if you can't afford the petrol, you can't drive the car. Tough... but true! If vou can't afford the software, you should make do with what you have, or use the PD, or magazine Coverdisk demos, or the local library, or swap with your mates - the options are endless, but for many theft is the easiest one.
Now, we here at Amiga Format are writing this feature to get one simple message through to all you Amiga users. If you use- copied games you will be responsible for the death of the Amiga games scene. There will be no new games for the Amiga by mid 1995. Now that may sound a long way off, but it will come around sooner than you think, and then that £300 worth of cheese coloured 32-bit wedge will be just so much junk. We don't want the Amiga to die. And we're damn sure you don't either.
So think as you tuck in to your Christmas dinner, those cheap games could work out to be very, very expensive indeed.
O: Do people inform you of pirates?
JL: We get complaints by telephone from all sorts of people - those who've bought pirated software and have just realised what they've done is illegal because they've seen the prices in the shops. You’ve got shopkeepers who see these stalls active, in action, and it's ruining their business. And you get everybody in between really.
What's the next step?
JL: We used to direct those complaints to the Police or Trading Standards officers, but Trading Standards would say they couldn't do anything about it because they didn't have the resources. The Police would say they've got burglars to catch so they don't think it's serious enough for us. Last year Roger Bennett went to the ELSPA council and said we need to do it ourselves or we'll do it through FAST, but we've got to do something.
£ : So what happens now?
JL: I'm running a team of six investigators all over the country. They channel their actions back to me.
I get big sacks of disks and notes as to how they got them and comments made by the pirate - all the facts of the case.
I put them together, type out the summonses and send them off to their local magistrates court.
They issue the summons and sign K and the guy has to go to court and answer the charge. Then I come along and present the facts.
In such a case where he might say he's going to plead not guilty, he's going to dany the offence, I’d employ a local solicitor to handle the case for me.
O: When do the Police get involved?
JL: The only time Is when I need an officer to come with me, say to a market stall, mainly to prevent a breach of the peace. The presence of the uniform gives it the credence that ha's being dealt with properly.
O: Does FAST deal with serious software as well?
JL You can subdivide it. Of course, there's a lot of spill-over because, for example, a guy might be selling PC disks and he'll always sell both business and games. Basically I deal with software for the Amiga.
Sega and then a lot of the console stuff.
©: What's the percentage of pirated to legal software?
JL It's impossible to assess... it's a very large ratio, illegal to legal. You've just got to look around our office: there’s 2,200 disks in that pile that we picked up in Camden Market two Sundays ago. One of my investigators was recognised and the bloke legged it abandoning all thoses disks. How many thousands of disks has he got elsewhere? In that bundle, there CASES FAST
• High Street dealer in Wales selling copied games to customers,
four month suspended prison sentence and £1,000 fine.
• Youth in Cleveland selling copies by mail order, fined £250.
• Young man in Liverpool dealing copies from home lost 3.500
disks and fined £200.
• Employed Sussex man dealing in disks from home In spare time
fined £650 at Crown Court lost 2,500 disks and his computers.
• Swindon man selling at car boot sales. 80 hours community
service, paid £250 at Crown Court were 18 or 20 copies of Space
Hulk, Hind Guns, Prime Mover, all the latest stuff which has
only been out for a week or so.
H: Are most pirates amateurs, or professionals?
JL: When you go right across the scene, you've got to start from the Bulletin Boards and the cradling teams. They do it for kicks. Then you get guys who are on the boards - they're on to get the software they want They get the stuff off the boards or from modem-trading and they amass the software. They seem to go across into the market stall area where you get guys who are dealing with the modem traders - usually mail-ordering and the market stall guys are getting it from the modem-traders.
When it comes to the market stall traders, you're talking about people who're purely in it for the money. They're not the slightest bit interested in Amiga software - last year they were probably selling videos. There is a lot of money In It - there are some very heavy people involved In It now.
They're actually cartels, operating at a number of car boots at the same time. Look at the overheads
- they’ve got 25-50p per disk and sell them for £1.50- £2 per
disk. These guys are making £100,000 a week.
Is it true that software houses and programmers are leaking the stuff to the pirates?
JL: There is more than a little truth to those sort of suggestions. That's all I can say.
2 : What about CD piracy?
JL: The latest I'm hearing about is a guy's selling a complete range of Nintendo software on one CD.
It costs £620. You're talking about 600Mb of info. How many has he got to sell before he recoups the £3,000 for the CD presser? So he buys a CD manufacturing machine, makes the Cds, sells 500 and he's made more than his money back.
CD will be a problem, yes, because though you can't do it cheaply now, the technology will overtake it and no matter what you do, someone will find a way round it.
Do you think if software was cheaper there would be less piracy?
JL: I don't know. Budget titles are still cracked.
Budget titles are only £8-10 aren't they? And you get just as many cracked disks for the budget titles.
1) . What about games that cost up to £70?
JL: Well you could apply that argument but I would counter that by saying Jaguar motor cars are a lot of money, but I don't go out and nick one I make do with a Nissan. If you can't afford it you can't afford it that's what life's all about.

KEV BULMER md, Dimension Creative Designs.
Responsible for Legends of valour and Resolution 101.
JOHN LOADER - LEADING INVESTIGATOR FOR FAST We don’t make much profit, but we do enjoy doing what we do. If Amiga piracy continues, then its up to the publishers who advance us development money against potential sales if they want us to develop for the Amiga.
Software publishers at the moment are not interested in developing for the Amiga, the CD-1- yes, hut not the Amiga.
People who pirate will suffer in the long run. They might have 200 games to play with this month, but in six months all of the big software houses will have pulled out and they'll be left with nothing.
DINO DINI A firm footy fan, Dino has produced Kick Off 2 and Coal.
I work for a living, not to provide entertainment for free. If the level of Amiga piracy stays the same, 1 will continue to support it, but only because 1 can also produce other formats as well. On its own. It wouldn't be worth it Goal! Is probably the last game I will develop on the Amiga first Pirates should see that there aren't as many new games coming out as there used to be. It's time to grow up and buy games.
If they carry on like this, they can look forward to a future where the only software they can get for their Amiga is in the Public Domain.
Piracy is theft and is done by rather sad, juvenile misfits. It has no excuse. It will ultimately mean that the quality of Amiga software will decline. If pirates want good games, if thev want the Amiga to survive, it's up to them.
ANDY BRAYBROOK Programmer, Graftgold Andy has worked on Fire and ice and uridlum 2.
The more piracy there is, the less able we are to develop new games. But the Amiga platform is moving on to be less piratable.
With CD32 and the CD add-on for the A1200 there's going to be less piracy... The arrival of CD32 actually means we’re going to stay in the market a lot longer than we would have done.
Software pirates only realise how much damage they're doing when it affects them personally. We get people who come into the office who suddenly realise how much what they're doing affects what we do for the Amiga.
SMALL AD DEALER An ad in a local newspaper offered all the latest game releases for sale at £1 each. So we contacted the number in the ad to find out exactly what the seller was up to. We told him we were from Amiga Format, he agreed to talk to us. He said he worked for MicroProse and, as member of staff, that he could buy the games at a discount.
However, he also said: "I’ve got everything for sale on the market - all the latest releases. I can't go through , ... „ The latest Amiqa games on sale for £1 a
2. 000 games with you really. .. „ ' .
. Disk! But is rt all above-board?
"My games aren't pirated - they re original stuff. They're not for sale at £1 each, they're £10.1 know a lot of pirates.
Everyone who's got an Amiga I reckon has got copied stuff, but obviously I'm against it because I work for MicroProse. Everybody who works for MicroProse is allowed a specific number of games a year and you can do what you like with them really. You hold your allowance for a certain amount of time and you can get a bulk order.
"I don't want you to contact MicroProse. They don’t set any rules about what you're meant to do with the stuff, but it is a bit iffy."
When we contacted MicroProse, they said that although they were aware that staff receive free copies of some games, they do not have a staff discount scheme and were shocked by what this man was doing.
ROGER BENNETT, GEN SECRETARY, ELSPA ¦Piracy; he says, *is a major source of loss of revenue for legitimate publishers - somewhere between £50 to £70 million loss in the UK alone.
O: What can be done to stop it?
RB: Hopefully, the new technology will stop it. Although whenever there's new technology someone will always find a way of cracking it but it might be a lot easier to protect. At the moment ELSPA (European Leisure Software Publisher's Association) are investing very heavily in investigating software piracy in every possible area.
'Ti What measures do you think they could take to tighten up on piracy?
RB: They must be wary of leaving review copies anywhere, in any circumstances. At the ECTS a software publisher left his stand for two minutes and within three days It was on sale in Europe. Security is the name of the game as far as software houses are concerned. I know there are problems in some software houses, and they have to get to grips with it. There's now little they seem prepared to do in terms of protection, at least on the disk. Manual protection, at least, is still the most effective means.
O: How do you think CD is going to effect piracy?
RB: It costs quite a lot of money to buy a machine to duplicate a CD. In which case it's easier to isolate those machines if anyone is actually duplicating on it.
CD: What do you think of the news that Frontier: Clite 2 has been released on a Bulletin Board?
RB: It's clear that as soon as games are released they're cracked and put on Bulletin Boards for distribution the same day. The Home Office Committee are investigating computer pornography and offensive material transmission by Bulletin Board shortly.
'2?: Is the situation with the Amiga the worst?
RB: Yes, because a lot of product is easily piratable - back-up devices are available widely and legally - and on a single disk. PC product is multi-disk which makes it more difficult and it's manually protected as well.
1) What would you say to someone who's pirating software, or
using pirated software?
RB: There's always the risk if you've got a hard drive you could easily corrupt what you've got on it by using pirated software. Those who buy counterfeit software are likely to find that they won't have any software to pirate in the long term - the Amiga market has been substantially reduced as a result of piracy.
MARTYN BROWN Director and project manager, Team 17 Team 17 have a exceptional reputation lor quality software - such as Body Mom. Alien Breed and Project X - often at very competitive prices. Because the main arguments of users of copied software are that games are too expensive, or too crap to warrant paying for. We thought Martyn Brown would have a more encouraging tale to tell. Not so. .
"Price doesn't make a difference - the cheaper games are copied just as much. Our prime concern isn't for how much money we're making, we have to make a profit but I'm not bothered about getting mega-rich. I love the job.
"We're bothered about the future of the Amiga. There will be no games in the future if piracy continues. But people don't see what they are doing as an individual is affecting die industry. They just think 'well, it's just one copy. It can't do any harm'. But ii does."
DETECTIVE SERGEANT STEVE LITTLER, COMPUTER CRIME UNIT, NEW SCOTLAND YARD Tr. What’s the police's attitude in general towards software piracy?
SL It's something that's left to a certain extent to FAST. They do a lot of the investigation and call upon our assistance when they need K. It's not an act that many polio have to deal with. If you think of all the acts on the statute book, unless you know specifically where to go to, I could see the problems that would arise.
O: What if saw someone selling illegal software at a market, would you make an arrest or would you pass the info on to FAST?
SL Not directly, because obviously we'd want to know a bit more about it and we would probably let FAST know something about that.
* 2 : Is there a procedure the Police go through with FAST?
SL Because of where we are (Scotland Yard) we deal with them quite a lot so we tell them the information and then they deel with it. FAST have the knowledge that we could never gain, because we can't gat any expertise in individual operating systems that they can. Because we haven't got the resources, the manpower and generally things like that.
What sort of cases have you dealt with?
SL The ones that we've had and assisted them with are Bulletin Boards.
Do you think the police take piracy seriously enough?
SL Any crime is a crime, isn't it? I would say that very few people come to us complaining of software piracy or theft.
A SPECIAL CASE Police office Sergeant Mick Pearson, from Dudley, is one of those rare officers with the specialist knowledge required to recognise and deal with piracy. Sgt Pearson has an A1200, having upgraded from an A500 this year.
When he went to buy some Amiga games from a man who advertised in his local paper, he suspected him of dealing In coplad software. After further investigations, Sgt Pearson pursued the case and his investigation resulted in an arrest. The case went to court the magistrate gave the man a conditional discharge and ordered that he should pay the court costs, that all the disks should be confiscated and that his A1200 should be given to FAST to further their progress in fighting piracy.
PETER MOLYNEUX MD, Bullfrog.
Bullfrog have produced great games like Populous and Syndicate.
Piracy on the Amiga is a serious threat and to my mind the pirates have won. We didn't put copy protection on Syndicate - there's no point putting protection on games, because they only get hacked within a couple of days.
Here's a message for Amiga pirates: congratulations, you have now won over on the hacking side, and you have shown us how much better you arc than us developers. Well done for making the Amiga a secondary marketplace behind the PC - we always used to develop fust and foremost for die Amiga, but too much piracy means this is no longer the case.
Adies and Gentlemen... A real life pirate!
'If: How long have you been involved with software piracy?
About three months now.
If How did you get involved?
A mate of mine, he's a real entrepreneur, said to me that he could get the games, and did I want to sell them. I look after my sick father. I'd just finished my degree, and my mate knew I needed to make some extra money. He knew someone in one of the large piracy organisations, and they'd stopped dealing in software, so he got me all the letters and I replied to them.
If: So did you have, or do you now have, any interest in computer games?
I’m not very interested in computer games at all. I used to be. I had a Spectrum. C.64 and an Amiga.
If: So you don't have your own modem at home?
No. I don’t have any gear at my house. 1 have a PO box, but that's registered at someone clse's house, and the Amiga isn’t there.
If : These precautions are for fear of prosecution?
Not prosecution, no. You see in Scotland (where this man is from) the Prosecutor Fiscal has declared that it Isn't in the public interest to prosecute software pirates. But the police can come round and confiscate all your gear.
If : Does it ever strike you that piracy is wrong at all?
In the course of our investigations for this feature we came across a dot matrix printout that included a comprehensive list of Amiga games for sale for £2.50 for the first disk, and £1 for subsequent ones, we contacted the seller, who turned out to be an affable and intelligent man in his early twenties. He agreed to the following interview... Yes, I consider myself very honest. I know piracy is wrong, but if I wasn't doing it, someone else would be in my place. I've got to make my money somewhere, I can't get a job. I'd rather not do it. I don't make a lot of money out of it.
I deliberately don’t make a lot of money out of it. I don't want FAST on me. I don't think FAST are going to touch me, they’ve got plenty of other people to do.
'If : How do go about getting your custom?
I advertise in the local paper.
We're advertising on cracked games now as well.
'If : Aren’t you concerned that piracy will kill the games industry? In the end it will result in you having nothing to sell.
In my experience, pirates really don’t care.
There’s always something else to copy. Cartridge piracy is increasing. Compact Disc copiers are only a few thousand pounds. No one cares whether it’s the Amiga or any another machine.
We’d like to pul a stop to the speculation and gel a clearer picture of the extent of Amiga piracy. So we're asking the biggest network of Amiga users in the world. Amiga Formal readers, to give us die low down. This will be in complete secrecy, we don’t want to know your name and address. Just answer these questions...

Amiga Format, 30 Monmouth Street, Bath Avon BA1 2BW.
DAVID BRABEN The BIGGER Picture Greats such as Elite and Frontier Elite 2 come from the Braben brain.
Piracy means that I may not be supporting the Amiga in the future. I've always liked the Amiga as a machine. The hacking isn't a problem, it’s the people who sell the games on the streets who're doing the real damage.
So where do we go from here ?
So there you have it, die view of piracy from those who really know. The games developers who will be forced to abandon the Amiga if it continues, the men who dedicate their lives to combating it. And the people who actually do it.
The impressive thing here is that everyone cares about the future of the Amiga. Except, of course, for the guys who are actually selling pirated software - they just want your cash.
The Amiga has more enthusiastic and dedicated bunch of users than any computer. This is you I'm talking to. The machine keeps getting better and better, as does the software, the customer support, (the magazine?). But it could all be brought down by a bunch of no good thieves who.
In some cases are making more money than legitimate software shops FAST are doing their best, but only one group of people can really stop Amiga piracy, and save the Amiga from certain death. You!
Spread the message, save the machine. 'If VOURi _ 3 THIS ™ m CHRISTMAS well...you asked for it but are you gonna get it!
Just cut out the pic, make sure your nearest and dearest brings it to us. They part with the money, you slam it in the machine - doddle!

Pnarnnr Our fishy superhero is back, and this time he’s...well... what?
How is Pond 3 going to improve on Pond 2? And how, indeed, is it going to be different from all the other colourful platformers?
And even if you manoge to do all of these things, Maybe has one lost shock in wait. "I'll give you o hint - it relates to the blue cheese. That's a surprise for the player, if he thinks he's done it," Ion says mysteriously.
So there's more plot, ond what's more, it's closely tied in to the player's progress in the game.
"From time to time the player reaches 'Event Markers', which reveal the next bit of plot, encourage the player, and explain the pieces of stuff he's gathered." Pond con pick up all kinds of things, and some will be crucial to his progress.
An example is "the beacon on each level, which is a glorified exit pole, and you have to bop it to proceed. First time you encounter one you'll get a message from HQ.
Sometimes you have to enable them by collecting other objects."
On top of all this, there's more than just one secret agent in this game. Three others have been sent to the moon before and disappeared, and Pond will need to find them, rescue them and use their special powers to complete his quest.
The three are Fineas Frog, girl agent Angel Fish and Fineas' cousin, an archaeologist called Farley - who has a special purpose, which cannot yet be revealed I Pond has more powers: lost time he could stretch, but now he can run, jump, climb surfaces, go into Turbo mode and even turn completely upside down. He can throw a punch, too, which is important: some baddies, if he just jumps on them, won't be harmed (though neither will Pond) ond, indeed, this is an important form of transport.
All this isn't even the half of it, all thanks to Chris Sorrell, who did the original design. "It does seem that people ore missing a trick by not doing more of the things that they could do," Ian comments. And is that about all we have time for? "Apart from the fact that it looks incredibly pretty and is incredibly playable - sell, sell, selll" he chuckles.
Expect A1200 and CD32 (with CD audio) versions in late February next year, with the A500 600 version just a few weeks later.
"The Amiga is closest to our hearts, so we’re looking forward to springing it on the Amiga community." O In Pond 2, our hero could basically Jump around and bop people, and he could stretch. In Pond 3 he has lots ol special equipment and special moves. The trickiest thing In terms ol programming Is that he's wearing moon boots - he oan walk up walls and get upside down on the celling.
More is probably the key word. More of everything. More development time - "We've been working on it for over two years," says Ian Saunter, Millennium's development director.
And it's more of a challenge, too.
"We didn't want to write just another platform game. You're looking at a game that is trying to be full of stuff, giving weeks or months of play."
This means more levels, of course. Set on the moon, it has eight zones, each constructed from a different dairy product - yellow cheese, custord, yoghurt, butter, blue cheese, slime, ice cream at the poles, and also crystal caverns. "Scattered throughout those zones are 105 levels," explains Ian, "but you don't have to complete each one to get through to the end because there's lots of routes."
More variety too, then? Indeed.
"You choose your route from a map screen, which as you complete each level opens up new routes and offers different angles. So there's an infinite variety of routes, and also you can find secret tokens which open up secret routes. Most keenos will find most of the secret stuff, but some of it will be pretty hard to find."
There's more plot, too: and this is important. "Doctor Maybe, the arch enemy, has gone up to the moon to mine cheese in vast quantities in order to flood the world market and cause an economic crisis," explains Ion. "The player is trying to find the point on the map where Maybe puts in an appearance, which he does, in fact, in a large flying cow-like device. " Yes, as you might expect, there's much more silliness on the way as well.
"Along the way," continues Ian, "four of the levels are cheese mines, which you have to destroy". If you miss the mines, even if you defeat Maybe, you will be disappointed.

The amount of fine detail In Frontier* world to quite astounding. There are huge explore, and If you fly down to a planet and explore It, whole cityscapoe appear.
Moment's silence please while we time ago there was sjpme. This game struck a crjrd with a generation of games players. It put you at the controls of a spaceship and left you to your own devices in a huge area of space, free to trade, prospect, smuggle, pirate, assassinate and get chased slap into an asteroid by the cops. That game was coded Ade. Ten years have passed since f fe wos released, and now the sequel has arrived and everyone is all-a-quiver.
Fly through a huge virtual reality, shoot some people and sell other people some fruit and veg. Elite is back, and it’s I bigger and badder than ever. Join us on a fantastic voyage of discovery as we explore David Braben’s Frontier... Basically Frontier is the same game as Elite, there, it had to be said. The objectives, basic gameplay and game systems are the same, only bigger, bolder and better.
Let's start at the beginning.
Your grandfather is dead, bit of a blow that but these things happen. In his will he has left you a spaceship and his good wishes. The game starts with you sitting in the cockpit of your new crate with 100 credits and a ridiculous number of stars and planets to explore.
At each starport or space station scattered across the star systems you can buy and sell goods and equipment for your ship and scour the local ads for interesting jobs. There is no single objective other than to amass money to buy bigger and meaner ships to journey further and survive longer. The ultimate aim is to achieve the status of elite, meaning you are one dangerous spaceball.
There is a wide variety of ships to use, all with different statistics and each can be fitted out with swish bits of kit including the obligatory lasers and missiles.
Star quality How you go about things is up to you. Trading in legal goods between safe planets is a nice steady living that will keep you going for years.
Answering an advert for a bounty hunter and trying a spot of assassination work is generally a rewarding and SHOOT YOUR WAY THROUGH THE STARS, OR TRADE YOUR WAY AROUN a:ive tc-La-e Static: Relative ta Ma-i Pried Homing M-ssile Oops. It's the cops. Er. My laser just sort of went off accidentally officer, please stop shooting at mo. If you get trigger-happy In Frontier, you'll be in trouble, so seloct your targets wisely.
Another day. Another credit. This is you blasting off from Mars, which is now green ond full of life. This Is the second of the three starting points from where you can embark on your travels.

A Mars a day The game b controlled b combination of keyboard mouse or joystick. Flying about in space is weird at first because there is no up and no dawn, and battles can easily turn into a spinning frenzy as you try and bring your guns to bear.

CHRISTMAS 1 993 GAME REVIEW The best thing about Frontier Is the size of It - there are millions (well, lots) of places to vMt. In fact, it's a game that could turn into a way of life. Damn. I was trying to avoid that clldia.

At ways to make money and get Relative lufioston Bate is particularly complicated, so once you've read through the manual once and tried out a few flights you'll have the hang of it.
It's best to start with a spot of commodity trading then build up to a couple of the simpler missions to get some dosh together for better ship before you try anything really dodgy. To tackle the serious stuff you need to pack a much heavier punch. Getting to the heavy-duty ships will take a long, long time.
One of the pains of the original Elite was docking with the space stations. It required plenty of practice and involved lots of frustrating explosions. Frontier gives you Mm chofc* of three ttart- Richardson s Munr Hork; planet with a thin atmosphere Mass O DE Earth masses Surface temperature -1E°C Major Starports Mew 5terens:n ?rbital period kdays Orbital radius 0.DC4 R U Orbit Err and Inrl. 0.EG8.1.B* orfmended starting position comes complete with an automatic pilot, a real boon. Elite purists can start at the original starting position with the same Cobra ship as Elite.
If you are going to get very far in Frontier. It's vital that you do your homework. Check up on a system to find out what goods they have got. What they need and who is running the show.
That ship you always dreamed of. But, it requires patience, and it is easy to muck things up and end up a fugitive from somebody or other. Combat takes a little practice, and it really helps to write prices and availability of goods down as you go along.
Frontier alto demands a meticulous appraoch, and some battles are very long winded and frustrating.
Aficionadoes of the original Elite may be a little disappointed, sure the 3D routines are stunning but tha bare bones of the game are pretty much the same only bigger. It would have been nice to have had more interaction with the universe instead of constantly flying about and fighting.
If you missed out on Elite then you are in for a treat.
The basic concept is simple and the addictiveness is horri- fying. If you find yourself getting hooked then you have a game that will last and last.
There will always be another world to see, another few credits to earn and another spaceship to fight it out with.
The universe is yours, try not to dent the ship, eh?

I j eJaJ jBJ hi mi juj ai b i CYBERPUNKS And this is the big green spaceship you are dropped oft by. I wonder If mum or dad s driving? Do be at the pick-up point by 9.30!
Gee: “Now whore are those ruddy aliens then?"
You: “Oh come on! Behind you! Behind you! You bunch of spotty nerds. It’s behind you!"
Cyberpunks is whal you are, in an interactively multi- media, virtually real environment Lifestyle-wise, your tasking is orientated towards downsiding the alien threat.
Keeee-riced! Just how many faddish buzz-words can you pack into an opening sentence in order to get consume-or-die space cadets to take notice (not you lot, of course, but the other ones who are thinking of dropping their consoles and using decent machines). But buzz-literacies are what will sell Cyberpunks because there is obout as much cyberpunk in this gome os there is in an episode of Open All Hours.
This is your basic bug hunt, no matter what the normally above average Core Design would have us believe. It features three cute Nippon-style heroes - Raa, Bee and Gee (yes this is where the Gibb Bros go when there isn’t o crapulent movie to write a soundtrack to).
Because they are Japanese cartoon- style (not Manga, let me add, but Pizza Cats or whatever they were called) they look like heavily armed eight-year-olds who have overdosed on caffeine - that's where those enormous eyes come from, surely?
Their task os part of 501 st Cyber Assault Squad is to ’rid the universe of the toughest of alien enemies!'
Well, you get a bunch of sprites that look alarmingly like Alec Alien from the Alien movies, some blotchy blobby looking things that blob blotchily around the place, and some other monsters who follow you nastily. I'm sure that in the later-later levels there are heaps of real state-of- the-art 'toughest of alien enemies' but the urge to find out just isn't there.
Don't mistake these harsh words as a kicking for this gome; as bug- hunts on jazzy-coloured backgrounds with a choice of weapons and a few puzzles to negotiate goes, then Cyberpunks does the job A few people who watched while I was doing battle said; "Chaos Engine" You have to live with comparison-making in this job. It does feel a bit like Chaos Engine because there is more than one chorocter shooting at things.
In short, you control all three characters at once as they conga their way around alien worlds. Sure, you can choose a character to lead the crew. Sure, you can pick things up with that lead character until he gets full-up, and then swap characters using the space-bar. Sure, it will appeal to younger Amiga owners as well as a legion of spotty console-owners come the conversion, but as for lasting interest, I can't see it. But the one thing that destroys it as a playable fun-thing is that Raa and the BeeGees can't walk and fire at the same time. This turns it from a game that won't do anybody
any harm to a just above average filler.
Tim Smith O “ Cyberpunks is a basic bug hunt and is enjoyable as such. But it hasn't got the right ingredients to urge you on to higher levels or hold your interest for long. ** Mutation PUBLISHER Core Design ~ RICE £25.99 RELEASED Out now Cutesy Japanese-style figures firing some multi-coloured shells at some very cute enemies.

.r II Hired and emotional The only places you can't look or fire are up and down (I hope that DMA tweak this for CD- - a big tweak, I know but if it can be done on Jurassic Pork from Ocean, I don't see why they shouldn't have a bash at Hired Guns). Apart from this restriction the rest of the Hired Guns world is your rather rank and life- threatening oyster.
As for the control system, put it this way, before Psygnosis deigned to present us with a review copy in fully finished form with box and manuals, I had been playing the pre-review copy for weeks without reference to anything but what appeared on the screen. And I'd been loving every minute of it.
This review isn't a manual, so I'm not going to explain how everything works here, you'll have to find that out for yourselves. Suffice to say that it is the most seamless control system of its type that I've ever seen on the Amiga. Brilliant.
Thot really is that. Hired Guns is all about strategy, violence, intelligence, problem solving of a superbly weighted standard, atmosphere, ond playobilty. If Amiga games really are taking over from pop music, then Hired Guns is Their Satanic Majesties, and DMA are The Stones.
We have only just begun.
Cenaries. In fact, you con be one of four, or two of four, or three of four.
And if four of you wont to play Hired Guns, well just do it.
You can be a mercenary with a soul, a mercenary with a dark secret, a mercenary with a workstation for a mind, a mercenary with poor dress sense, a mercenary with a beard, a mercenary with cramps every 28 days... but most of all you can be a mercenary with a gun and with the desire for dosh.
If you played the demo of Hired Guns on the cover of AF44 then you'll be aware of the perspective ond control system. If you're new to Amiga Format, welcome, and what you have been missing is one of the most atmospheric, enclosed and son- ically-appealing games of the last few years. Yes, Hired Guns really is that good. In fact it's the best Amiga game of this year, and perhaps even any other year.

From the deserts of the Middle East to the killing fields of
Cambodia, there’s only one plane guaranteed to strike fear in
the maddest dictator’s heart. Stealth Fighter 2.0 is here...
Flight sims, eh? Most of them are about as exciting as
watching the M25 video, or a driver's eye view of the rail
journey from Aberdeen to Penzance. They come with manuals the
size of bungalows and instructions which you need a degree in
Physics to understand.
Sheeshl You have to admit, though, that some are rather better than others and MicroProse have earned themselves a fat fortune making games that are just that.
F-f 17A is the long-awaited sequel to the fantabulous F-19 Stealth Fighter, one of the best flight sims ever, and shares Gunship 2000's extremely playable game engine.
For Stealth's second excursion into the world's battlezones, MicroProse have enlisted the help of some of the world's biggest trouble spots - Central Europe, the Persian Gulf, Cuba, Korea and Vietnam - and supply you with an infinite variety of suicidal missions for you to throw your Amiga at.

EreaE fei • ’ R1.' Jki This is disgusting. Appalling Shameful. This is irresponsible, degrading, vicious, untenable, vile, gross, rotten, dismal and thoroughly despicable No matter how much I think about it, no matter how much I try, no matter how much considered brain-working combined with finely honed judgement I put into it, there is no way in which I can rescue the civilian from his cage in one of the scenarios of this massive game in time for this review to go to press.
Believe me, I pleaded with Afs editor to tell the printers to hold their multi-thousand-pound presses for just a few days longer. I lied about having the flu', the plague, the pox, Delhi- Belly, Montezuma's revenge and scabies in order to get a few more days - no a few more hours - to play this domnable computer entertainment.

addictability. And if there are two things it has then they are
addiclobil- ity and killer playability.
Like lemmings or Syndicate, it discovers o tiny piece of your cerebellum that is most prone to fun, self-sacrifice, problem solving and extreme violence and, I'll say it again: "Whammo!"
You're nabbed.
For those of you who haven't given this month's Coverdisk demo a go - either. But that's the kind of hold that Cannon Fodder can have on you if you don't watch out. There you ore doing something important when "Whammo!" An idea leaps into your by now fried mind as to how to complete one section from one mission.
Bye-bye day. Bye-bye really important thing... Hello games mania.
Because, if there's one thing thot Cannon Fodder has in spades, it's poppy-bedecked screen that lists the names of the dead like a kind of mobile Washington Wall or Cenotaph.
Oh for sure there is o heap of mouse-driven wandering around various backdrops shooting, grenading or rocketing things Yeah, there are skin-crawling death scenes in which soldiers - their innards doing spastic dances on their uniforms - writhe around on the floor as they wait to be put out of their misery.
And boy is this offensive But then again, the sight of people writhing around on the floor in then here's a quick overview of the action and the plot.
Ready for real war?
Cannon Fodder is o wargome.
It is a wargome without statistics. It is a wargome without lediousness It is a wargome in which people die.
That's right, when you lose one of your troops, your ore made more than oware of it by the black, agony while fighting futile little skirmishes for rich oil componies, drugs, money, or other less dignified causes is offensive. At least playing this diversion will keep you out of the army.
Cannon Fodder does not muck around when it comes to violence.
Where many other pieces of computer leisure-ware (the term 'computer game' is rapidly going out of fashion in this industry) emulate films such as lethal Weapon, Universal Soldier or Under Siege in their sanitised, sentimentalist, feel-good portrayals of violence, Cannon Fodder goes for the Reservoir Dogs approach. You're shot. You bleed.
You cry out loudly in a most embarrassing and un-TV-like manner. You can take a hell of a long time lo stop living. Then, in time of war, you lend to get left where you lie, probably forgotten for o while until the furore is done with. Then maybe forgotten for ever.
For the purposes of this game, you and your mouse fingers ore in control of a number of recruits.
Their mission (whether I HeftOfcS !N'VlfctORY CANNON FODDER !«v -fERVV.-$ fiAL.LV ,*$ t JASON Boo-hoo-t1000. These chaps didn’t make It back. Poof old Rog - he was a fine lad. Dear old Pussy, she was much loved. Beefy and Howard, on the other hand, were privates. Next!
Huua and hurrah! West Point and Sandhurst, all ol them... well, except Jason, but he is damned useful for lying over the top of barbed wire and for diving on hand grenades.
PROGRAMMIRS Sensible Software heavy stuff What's Ihe gomeplay like? Bloody brilliant matel That's what Easy. Too right it's easy. For a start it's mouse-driven, so even if you've never considered buying a loystick, you can still ploy it. Right button to walk. Left button to lire Right and left to throw something that goes boom There's a map at the lower left of the screen to give you some handle on where you ore and what you've got to do - it also pauses the game, tipsters.
Then there are the “ You will have had very little sleep for quite a while, your mouse hand will be twitching in a deeply worrying manner, and you will probably be giggling under your breath. ** scenarios.
As Sensible Supremo Jon Hare admits, the graphics are utilitarian They do their job very well indeed, setting atmosphere and (thank goodness) using up most of the screen. Your little guys (and lasses, who can tell what sex they are?) Bear a striking resemblance to the Auxerre side from Sensible Soccer out on a severe training run.
They are liny, cute and highly motivated (what?!) And they are very dangerous when used properly.
The missions are many and varied. As I mentioned, in order to accrue more ronk (or your grunts, they have to complete missions - but these missions are more often than not split into several sub-sections.
Each of these is a drain on your abilities, so when you do actually or not they agree to accept it) is to go into various bottle situations and sort out the enemy. This 'sorting out' process involves destroying buildings, expunging the opposition, rescuing occasionally unwilling civilians, and surviving intact.
If this final condition is met, then your troops are hoofed up a rank.
This has the tripartite purpose of (a) making them and you feel good; (b) upping their intelligence, reflexes, speed and ability to move around the terrain in the optimum manner; (c) giving them really good- looking grave stones when they eventually meet the inevitable shell that is emblazoned with their signature Because that’s what happens at the end of an unsuccessful mission.
You are returned to the distinctly sparse and obviously Sensible recruitment screen, and on the hillside behind the queues of eager dead I you've managed to produce.
Of course, the higher the rank of the corpse, the more impressive the tomb marker. Neat eh, gamesters?
But enough of this ironic stuff This is a game review here, ond the 1powers-thol- be don't want all this young grunts preparing to don the small white crosses marking the number of war *¦ b- .-I khoki and do battle, you will see loads and loads of Can you keep in control?
We ll have to wait a year to see whether it lasts the course. I would still have liked to ability to customise names, to hard disk install, and for the control of the skidoos ond the tanks to have been a little easier.
But I can see this magazine, for one, printing map after map for some very frustrated gamers in the next few months.
And. Despite what the tabloid press (well. The Star] have to say about the 'shameful' nature of this game - Sensible used pictures of the commemorative poppy on the originol packaging and in-game graphics (the graphics have now been changed), this is possibly the most anti-war game I've seen in a while. So have fun with it Tim Smith O complete one of the later or middle missions, not only have your troops improved, but you've also come away a better player OK, so your nerves will be shattered and you will have had very little sleep for quite a while, your mouse hand will be twitching in a
deeply worrying manner, and you will probably be giggling under your breath, or whispering: "Eat that!" Or "Die pig!" Or "Go on Tubby, chuck the grenade!", but you will have finished a mission.
The more you get into this game, the more adept at it you become and the more dangerous the little uns become. This gradual curve, in tandem with the fast reactions and intense problem-solving abilities you have to invoke, goes to place this as a classic in the making.
* Violent, yes!
Extremely thought provoking. Highly enjoyable foray into the intelligent side of wandering around the place and doing it to them before they do it to you. ** A theme tune that sticks in your head, sound effects that work a dream - superb.
ADDICTION maumflflEa It will keep you playing and playing and playing and playing for weeks and weeks.

GUI5 3AJ.Tel:(0276) 684959 This caterpillar thing is real
annoying. You're trapped in the comer of the screen, you can't
run away, and Bren s firepower seems to have little effect.,
but you have to destroy it somehow Otherwise, it continues to
swoop down to the floor and hammer »©u to pieces. Then the
answer dawns on you: the energy wheel' roll.
Bren turns Into a moving ball of pure power and blasts the pesky bug to bits.
There's something comforting about playing Turrican 3. It's a bit like bumping into a casual acquaintance you haven't seen for years, going for a beer, reminiscing about old times and discovering that despite superficial changes, you're pretty much the same people deep down. If that acquaintance was Bren McGuire, the hero of Turrican 3 the conversation would probably go like this: "So Bren, what you up to?"
"Same old thing, mate - ridding the universe of an alien scourge."
"That sounds interesting."
"It's got its moments. Doesn't get any easier, though - 15 levels this time. The first few are OK once you've got the general idea, but it gets a bit hairy towards the end. I've The cockroachy thing on the right 1s easy enough to deal with, but the green armadillo is a persistent little bleeder.
Got some impressive fire power, though. It's not so much the action as the tactics that cause problems. One wrong turn and you've had it, especially because you're up against the clock."
"Another beer, Bren?"
"Got to fly; promised the missus I'd pick up a pizza."
Turrican 3 falls into the 'action packed platform romp genre, and as such involves lots of shooting, blasting, jumping on to lifts, swinging across gaping chasms and collecting things, in much the same way as the popular Turrican (88%, AFT 3) and Turrican 2 (80%, AF20).
The beasties that look like cockroaches on stilts are easy to handle, but the large green cannon-firing beasties and the crabs take a bit of a blasting before they curl up and die.
But Bren's no fool and he's well tooled up with plasma bolts, homing missiles, deflector shots, smart bombs and an energy wheel, which involves him turning into a rolling energy mass and wasting everything that comes near.
Why tike the *t*t-» when you'YJ got a pavna rope?
Bfon i one awing fig guy. ¦ This awesome firepower comes courtesy of the Turrican Assault Suit which Bren slips in to before starting his adventure through 15 worlds littered with hazards, chasms, bonuses and watery bits.
On top of this, you've also got the plasma rope - handy for exploring the bits that Bren can't leap to and swinging across things, it's a touch tricky to control at first, but with practice you'll be swinging around with abandon.
But lots of shooting and swinging do not necessarily a great game make. Turrican 3 is fun. It's tricky and frustrating enough to keep you glued to your Amiga for a fair whife, but there's nothing outrageously origi- Y nal about it.
Bren is o solid, reliable character, = and so is the game.

SOUND BBBBBBBBBB Wind whistles through the trees, waves lap on the shore and pigs snort. Marvellous.
Fed up with the nine-to-five routine? Then why not sign up as the leader of a completely new civilisation - a people with an overwhelming desire for money, food and somewhere lo park their pork, Erm, pigs, that is.
Settlers is the latest game from History Lire and Battle Isle programmers Blue Byte, This time around, though, the German Wunderkinder have turned their backs on their warlike past and opted for something altogether more 'wholesome', You control o tribe of settlers whose aim is to establish a harmonious and successful economy filled with bakers, pig farmers and fishermen. Naturally, you also have to be prepared to defend your fledgling civilisation against attack and indulge in the occasional spot of warfare to prevent your opponents hogging all the best land.
Can't stand craving The game is based on the theory of supply and demand. The greedy knights who defend your civilisation have a constant craving for gold which you must meet. Producing the gold involves a network of 25 sets of workers who all depend on each other to get their jobs done. The farmers grows the wheat for the miller, who turns it into flour for the baker, who makes the bread which the ore miner eats to give him the energy to get the gold. The mined gold is then passed on to a merchant who smelts the gold with a little help from his friends the coal miner, toolmaker and steel
maker. With the potential to have up to 64,000 characters on-screen simultaneously, you have quite a feat on your hands There's a constant demand for new roads, new buildings, fresh resources, mines and boats, so you have to be a dab hand at juggling competing demands made of you.
You also soon discover that simple mistakes can prove costly - over-ambitious expansion in the early stages can mean you run out of resources later when you need them most.
To help you sort out the whole complicated mess, you're presented with a series of tables and statistics giving you all the latest information about your tribe. You can adjust the flow of goods at any time and can even opt to make your knights more or less aggressive depending on how war-like you want to be.
It may sound as much fun as a lecture on monetary policy from Norman Lamont, but in fact nothing could be further from the truth.
Settlers is pocked to the gills with originality, humour and playability.
Blue Byte have injected each worker with his own personality, so it's eosy to tell them apart when they're wandering around the screen
- the carriers wave at each other and stick pigs under their arms
for delivery to the butchers, boatmen row their way across the
lakes and you can see bakers and toolmakers fashioning their
goods in the windows of their shops.
The battle sequences have a very cortoony feel with each tiny character performing leaps and twirls to evode the other's sword thrusts. Even when beaten, you're not treated to some bloodthirsty gut-spillage, but a cutesy waddle away from the scene of battle. The only disturbing bit is when you see your buildings going up in flame Popu ous-style - when an enemy encroaches on to your land.
Oozing atmosphere Graphically, Settlers is superb. From the 3Mb intro sequence to the isometric Populous-style gameworld, the game oozes quality with smoothly animated worker sprites, rippling pools of water and rustling trees adding to the atmosphere. The sound effects are great too, and change as you move oround the screen - get near to a lake and you hear the sound of waves lapping the shore, skip over to the farm and you get oinking pigs.
If that's not enough, it also features 50 different missions and a two-player mode where you can battle either against each other or jointly against an Amiga-controlled opponent. You can change the size of the game world, although you will find saving larger worlds difficult if you don’t own a hard drive since they need at least 1 6Mb storage space.
But one of the best things is that it only needs to load once. There's no disk-swapping and hardly any disk- accessing - Settlers is a joy to play on even the largest game world.

You can chose your rider from o gallery of mugshols and enter his or her name, age, weight and height and you can also take various options for accelerating and changing gear, or you can go for automatic shift.
A word of worning here, if you're using the joystick Up and Down option to change gear, it's all too easy lo jump a cog when you’re banking into a corner. Not that this is a fault of the game, it just takes a bit of getting used to and making a judicious choice of joystick would alleviate this minor inconvenience.
Prime Mover lacks a two-player option and spectacular crashes, but other than that, it is a perfectly ordinary racing game.
If you want an adequate motorbike game, look no further, but if you want a white-knuckle inducing, speed-freaking, adrenoline-pumping, turbo-charged experience, you may be disappointed.
Richard Jones O Most of my memories of riding motor bikes involve breaking down on country roads in sub-zero temperatures, running out of petrol and falling off.
So what a joy it is to be able to race around 12 of the world's most famous circuits in the comfort of a nice warm room, without a care about running out of fuel or grazing your knees. At least it would be if only Prime Mover was just a little bit more exciting.
True, you can zoom around the circuits at breakneck speed; yes, you have a choice of five bikes with the suitably daredevil racer names of Firebird, Hellcat, Hurricane, Nitemare and Rogue; and certainly, the graphics and sound effects are impressive enough, but despite all this, Prime Mover somehow fails to get the adrenaline racing.
You go round the tracks, you overtake other bikes, get overtaken, hit things (but never, not ever do you fall off), finish the race, and, if you JET STRIKE Jetstrike Sshl Don't look now but some of the world's biggest nutters have just walked in the door. The man with the moustache and the funny handshake is leader of a Third World dictatorship, the guy with the briefcase is an arms dealer. Traffic Wardens? Yes, there are some of them here too. All these psychos are members of SPUDD, a secret society with an evil intent - the tyrannical rule of the planet Earth. And you're the only one who can
stop them.
Jetstrike is an arcade shoot-em- up which enables you too fly 39 different types of aircraft on over 100 individual missions against the dastardly SPUDD. You get to fly everything from attack helicopters to Stealth Fighters, ond Spitfires to stunt planes, with just two slight catches.
Firstly, they've been lent to you by sympathetic governments on the understanding you'll look after them.
Secondly, most of them have a complete lack of ejector seats or parachutes. Gulpl Things don't get any easier when you see what you’re expected to do.
The action is viewed from a third-person perspective - no cockpit views here. This means you can't see what you're flying towards most of the time and you must rely on extremely risky hedge-hopping techniques and a crappy radar system.
Strangely, the plane handles them like a normal aircraft. You push the joystick up to dive, pull it back to climb when you expect it to be the other way around given the perspective. This means you make more than your fair share of mistakes, especially when it comes to sticking your kite on the Tarmac.
Once you've mastered the tricky controls ond got used to the weird viewpoint, Jetstrike actually proves quite rewording. There's a lot of variety in the missions, from bombing runs, to complicated dogfights, carrier landings and personnel drops. The huge number of different aircraft also makes this game more fun to play - the helicopters are easier to fly, but are pretty useless in dogfights against SPUDD jet fighters, for example.
The graphics are nothing stunning, there’s very little peripheral action on-screen, ond the plane sprites are small ond very sparsely detailed. It reminds me of the kiddie combat sequences in Ancient Arts ot War in the Skies, rather than F-19, but it's greot fun nevertheless. The sound effects are especially convincing with some tasty aircraft samples and ear-splitting explosions.

The War of the Roses - indeed, you may have seen the film starring Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas. And in 1974, a board game about that period of history was introduced with the title of Kingmaker. Now it's time for the bloody war battles to appear live and direct on your Amiga. This is your chance to rewrite the already muddied annals of mediaeval history.
KINGMAKER US Gold 021-625 3388 PRICE £37.99 Brief history lesson. The Hundred Years War with France ends in ignominy for the English king. Some of the folk in the kingdom ore a tad peeved and decide that a new king wouldn't be an altogether bad idea.
Naturally, the king’s a bit reticent in the departure lounge. Then a Tannoy announces that the House of York are gathering together a major posse, while the House of Lancaster are fairly busy in the old 'getting some chaps together' department.
And so it kicks off for a few years.
Right royal adventure Kingmaker is a point 'n' click strategic adventure game in which the ultimate aim is to be in control of the one surviving royal piece, becoming, in the process, undisputed King (or Queen) of England. To do this, you must capture an heir and kill all his rivals before getting him crowned You're oop north', and now ts your chance to attack. The choice, as they say. Is yours.
King in a cathedral. It's not as easy as it sounds.
All the historical personalities in the game are factual (you'll have to take US Gold's word for it) and you control a faction of nobles - you can also choose how many factions you wish to face (between one and five).
Other options include two difficulty levels, and the enchantingly named 'Advanced Plague' when infection can break out across towns, cities, ports and the countryside. It can Ckro.uU lop!,. Urn £»nut k«u.
AtobUj 'lit!.. Office.
Jlccfcbl.kapi e.d eiibopi JbrteMfUi Skip.
Animated graphic Interludes add to the ‘feel' of Kingmaker, and very Impressive they are.
Even kill ihe royals. Cue demonic laughter. Aha ha ho ha. Aha.
There is an Autohelp facility which provides help and advice on all facets of the game - useful for those who are new to strategy games, and for those that haven't got a clue what's going on.
Taking a pasting But the path to righteous justice is not smooth. The Plague can be a pest, peasants can revolt, and vast armies con give you a posting. Control is via mouse and keyboard, and after the initial learning process, the icons become familiar. The 150-page manual is packed with historical info and it's one of the few I've enjoyed reading from cover to cover.
Kingmaker is not purely icon clicking - there are graphic interludes and you can control the visual combat scenes using the mouse.
Similiar to a board game in that you move, and then your Amiga counters it. Kingmaker is on enjoyoble, if bloody, romp through one of Englond's most turbulent periods.
Even though it is well researched £38 is a tad too steep for even the most enthusiastic battler.
Stephen Bradley O Out now The icons are clear and the graphics reasonably impressive, although not exceptional.
Not Kingmaker's most distinguishing feature, considering most of the game is without it.
ADDICTION If you're into armour and choin- mail, you'll not be able to get off the battlefield too easily.
PLAYABILITY Usual strategy stuff - tough c the start, but persistence brin rewards in the end.

WHY NOT RING FOR A QUOTE. SAMEDAY RESPONSE. (SEE EXAMPLE) Panaso«'ic Quiet £WI We researched the colour printer market at great depth to find a colour printer good enough to cope with Amiga's powerful output, yet at an affordable price.
We found the perfect printer in the KX - P2180 and KX - P2123 quiet printers.
We then considered that if you were going to buy a Panasonic printer you would probably need a quality word processing package to use with it. We found that too. With 'Wordworth' yet at a retail price of £129.99 we thought that might be a little too expensive on top of your printer purchase!

Address... WHEN TWO WORLDS WAR The Westock-Waadam Warfare Workstation has one purpose: to manage and expedite the war between two planets. Or so it says in the manual. When you first boot up When Two Worlds War you are immediately thrown into o full-scale simulation of mechanised warfare in the far future.
The arena of combat is separated into three areas: your planet, the enemy planet and all the space in between the two.
You are placed in control of the entire war machine. You have to make the decisions as to which Military Units (MUs) you want to develop and how they are deployed once they are built. The options for new kinds of military hardware include tanks, jets, spaceships, submarines and satellites, and once you've got a set built, your units are RULES OF ENGAGEMENT eing a Fleet Commander in Rules Ot Engagement II. Though patrolling your space beat the game has many nice touches, for the Federated World such as being able to change the Force should be a fairly configuration of olmost every part of
happening business - but not, sadly, the game, when the proverbial hits the fan this is a rather dull and boring strategy exercise.
The theme of RoE II is that you are given a number of ships to deploy and a number of captains to... well, captain them. In your space sector there is a vast array of outposts, waypoints and enemy ships and a variety of missions. The most basic of these is to destroy two ships full of drugs and piloted by the alien Basree race. The missions get more sophisticated and much harder as you go along until you are involved in full-blown inter- galactic warfare.
The game is controlled from a split screen where you can call up four screens of tactical information at any one time. Each of these tactical screens deals with a different aspect of controlling your fleet, ranging from ship attack CHRISTMAS 1993 organised into squads with a base on your home planet.
The game is easy enough to control: each unit can be ordered to perform various functions in eoch of the three arenas, from simple patrols to direct engagements. Units can also be ordered to whizz out on seek-and-destroy missions.
Into the bargain, for your money you actually get the game in both standard and AGA form, on two separate sets of disks.
When Two Worlds War benefits from having an exploration os well as a warfare element. As your units invade the enemy space your radar reveals more and more to you.
The graphics are neat and clear, although some of the icons are a little confusing. The gameplay is reasonably intriguing, and as you and your enemy develop new units and increase in strength, the escalation of the war gives you a definite feeling of tension.
The essential skills required to succeed at When Two Worlds War are good management of your resources and production facilities, combined with strategic forethought.
When Two Worlds War is neither simplistic nor shallow. It is an intriguing war game that will absorb you for some time.
Richard Jones O ond defence capabilities, to communications, navigation, troop orders and information screens. This novel control panel and the flexibility of information it provides is probcbly the best feature of this otherwise turgid game.
All right, so you can choose the kind of aliens and ships you'll be fighting, the missions and campaigns you'll be playing and the physical aspects of the systems you'll be patrolling. But in the end Rules ol Engagement II is just plain dull.
It doesn't take long to realise that no matter how successful a Fleet Commander you may be, there will never be a great deal of satisfaction to be had from erasing monochrome dots on a screen.
Big fans of Public Domain Star Trek games may well find themselves hooked, but us ordinary mortals will have to look elsewhere for our kicks.
Richard Jones O ou always know you're in for a bad time with a game when its title is a very tenuous acronym.
SUB, apparently, stands for Strategic Underwater Battles. Oh dear.
The plot is that the surface world has become uninhabitable due to atmospheric depletion, and the only safe place on the planet is now under the sea. Obviously in such a situation the survivors of the holocaust would immediately build a base, arm themselves to the gill implants and go for all-out sub-aqua carnage. It seems highly reasonable.
There is a vague deja-vu aspect to all of this. Before you can buy weapons to kill everyone, you have to research and design them.
Millennium 2.2 springs to mind here.
Initially you have just one underwater base with research facilities, but you can build more, but you first have to make some money.
You can either sell the plans to weapons, ships or whatever you design, or you can sell components that you have manufactured yourself.
In the early stages you will not have the resources to make things, so selling plans is the only choice.
The mineral wealth of the ocean bed is there to be exploited. Mining platforms can be constructed to take oil, gems and ore from under the sea bed to power factories making components and ships which you can either sell or use to wage total war.
Ships can be organised into platoons to seek and destroy pirates.
You may leave the combat up to the computer to sort out, but it isn't advisable. Considering the whole game is about strategic underwater combat, it's a bit of a shame that the combat part requires all the strategic expertise of a really tough game of Snap.
This could have been a good game if only the user interface wasn't so tortuously unfriendly and if it didn't look like a poor version of a title released a couple of years ago.
This game is certainly sub-standard.
Nick Veitch ® SUB Remember that bit in The action takes place Theatre of Blood across two different screens - where Vincent Price the first is a map where you straps his victim into can move your forces collec- a chair and spears his eyes lively and plan your strategy, with a pair of rotating knives? The second is an overhead- That's what I feel like doing to - --- the programmers of this.
Theatre of Death combines arcade shoot-em-up and strategy elements based around the fictional Def Com Military Academy. As one of its keenest students you've been let *83 f ’ loose on a military simulator to engage in a war of attrition _ 9 A typical mMoo Involvw lou of very small 09a m St TOUr rum less common* pgppig rum*e around Uka toadlaaa chickens, ders and their armies.

You If you're a fan of can be called to launch troop gratuitous pixellated violence assaults, jet strikes, tank you're in for a treat. Like attacks or helicopter raids on Walker, Syndicate and a series of enemy targets. Cannon Fodder, Theatre of blasting everything you see. Death gives you plenty of tiny blood-spilling sprites. Your chaps even get splatted by tanks, swallowed by sharks or suffocate in the
swamps that cover the game area.
Sound good? It's notl Pass the suicide pills Theatre of Death is plagued by an almost insurmountable number of problems. The control method is incredibly fiddly: you move your troops and vehicles around using a mouse, but are forced to scroll around the Action Screen with the cursor keys, so instead of centring on your selected platoon, the game makes you chase around trying to find them. Worse still, appalling scrolling inevitably means firefights happen off-screen and you get caned by an enemy who's just out of sight.
Another major gripe is the game's lack of artificial intelligence when it comes to moving your troops. Click on the Action Screen to give them a destination and they plough through rivers or swamps, drowning in the process. They also die if you move too dose to your awn vehicles. Why?
Your tanks and A Pcs are little better. They manage to get themselves stuck behind every building, tree and hillock going, so you end up wasting even more precious time trying to negotiate obstacles, when the Al should work out where you want to go.
Graphically, ToD looks the part - the helicopters and jets are good, casting convincing shadows, the sound effects are good too with some con- _ vincing gun noises, explosions and spine-tingling screams.
But it's all spoiled by some dodgy collision detection and flickery sprites which get stuck behind objects and then stay there. What a shame.

* "***] OM??
P P ’] PROGRAMMER: F If you battle through the huards and obstacles of Wonder Dog and make It to the final level on planet K9. You'll encounter enough unpleasant things to send you barking mad.
First impressions con be misleading, and that's certainly the case with the platform extravaganza Wonder Dog.
Let's face it, Bunny Meadow isn't where you'd expect to start an adventure in which your canine hero must save the galaxy from the evil General Von Ruffbone and his army of dog troopers.
In fact, why anybody would want to go to Bunny Meodow is beyond me. The rabbits don't attack you unless you hit them first, the moles nip your ankles in a cute sort of way, and all there is to do is leap around the greenery and foliage collecting bones and diamonds and stumbling across the occasional bonus level before wandering off towards the next challenge.
You half expect Wonder Dog to slop half way through and say: "Come on bunnie wunnies, come on moles, come on hedgehogs, come on ducks, let's all stop and have a picnic." Pratt.
Collect the little smiley token to make the Invls- Ible platforms appear before your very eyes.
Anyway, after this less than auspicious start, Wonder I Dog begins to show its teeth. The levels become more challenging, there's Ihe occasional puzzle and you discover that Wonder Dog can burrow down to deep levels and slide under things, and that if you shoot some of the walls there are bonuses concealed within them.
After working your way through six levels (including the entertaining 'Dogsville' ond 'The Scrap Yord' and the extremely tricky Planet Weird') The hero of this escapade has.
Allegedly, been injocted with a

capsulo In a dosporato effort to save the galaxy from General

And taking on some particularly mediocre guardians, you arrive at General Von Ruffbone's home planet, K9, where your mission comes to a moderately thrilling climax. All of this is accompanied by the sort of music they ployed to carpet advertisements ot cinemas in the 1970s, and some rather good graphics.
Although it seems a bit ruff at first. Wonder Dog eventually shows some pedigree.

“Elite was pretty fronty. But Elite 2
- is FRONTIER!”
- Dave Green makes a very bad pun to introduce our massive
in-depth review of ELITE 2: FRONTIER.
He helicopter has been something of a tour de force in 1993, what with the brilliant Desert Strike, the fantastic Gunship 2000, and the slightly less impressive Firehawk. Noel Edmonds has still got his, I think; and Leonardo Di Vinci almost invented it. And Guns 'n' Roses go to concerts in them, apart from when they go by bus. Or by limousine.
Next up is Vision Software's Seek and Destroy, a blast-em-to-smithereens affair. Four different terrains (desert, water, snow and jungle) and a heap of missions are on offer in this easy-to- complete number.
I'm lying actually. This game is not easy. I've got a fax from Vision headed 'Hints and Tips'. At the bottom of the sheet it states: "everyone at Vision has been able to complete all 15 missions and continue playing for points". Fair enough, they wrote it, but they're so matter-of-fact about it. I haven't seen sight nor sound of snow or jungle.
So this is a shoot-em-up that will keep you in business for some time.
Seeking the folk that you must destroy is achieved by using the radar which is permanently on the tail of the chopper. Coloured dots represent the different enemies which include 'copters, tanks, and ships. Buildings are yellow (not scared, yellow dots, I mean). There is also a built- in map screen which you can refer to in times of need - in my case this was constantly.
Tactical manoeuvres Seek and Destroy has a two- player simultaneous mode.

Zool is very fast, very furious and filled with all kinds of psychedelic obstacles and baddies for you to overcome.
Widely touted as a console-beater when first released, the triumphant arrival of Zool on the CD32 should help establish the machine as a viable game-playing format and consign pretenders like the lacklustre Oscar to the bargain bins of history.
The aim of the gome is lo get the "Protector of Creative Thought ond Defender of Positive Action" through seven themed worlds - Sweet, Music, Fruit, Tool, Toy, Funfair and Shoot-em-up - collecting bonuses and zapping a motley collection of baddies as you go.
Zool CD32 plays like an absolute dream. You're hooked within the first couple of minutes of play as the scorchingly fast Ninja leaps from platform to platform. There are lots of great touches - like the ability to cling to the side of objects - and his spinning bamboo attack puts even the toughest baddies in their place.
As well os (obviously!) Including the enhanced graphics and sound effects of the AGA version, Gremlin hove also added some marvellous 3D animated sequences and a selection of - hey! - real music for you to blast through your stereo. All in all, Zool is an incredibly slick, doy-glo bered by baddies you thought were part of the scenery and the sight of Zool pirouetting madly from platform to platform against such a distracting backdrop can actually make you feel quite ill. I also hate the way baddies keep coming bock to haunt you no matter how many times you kill them.
However, these are minor niggles in an otherwise cracking platform game. Rush out and get yourself a copy today.
Rot) Maud ® SLEEPWALKER CD32 Programmers: CTA Developments ¦ Publisher: Ocean 061-832 6633 ¦ Price: £25.99 ¦ Release: out now ¦ AF Rating: 83% You think you've got little Lee into the perfect spot for a good kick up the side of o building when he trundles off and spoils your plans.
However with six massive levels, stacks of puzzles, bonus sections and some genuinely funny moments, Sleepwalker turns into on addictive and absorbing platformer. This CD32 version has all the gorgeous graphics, sound samples and animations of the AGA incarnation as well as some very Christmassy music. It's a shame Ocean Comic Relief's oil over now, so you forget about being charitable. The question is: can Sleepwalker CD32 stand up to close inspection, now the hype is all over?
You play a cutely animated dog called Ralph in a platforming adventure centred around your sleepwalking master, Lee. The aim of the game is for you to safely guide Lee through the hazardous streets of Kipsville and get him safely back to bed.
The first thing you realise is that Ocean have done this on the cheap. The plastic CD box doesn't have any special artwork or information on it hoven't included extra levels or animations (though there is a rolling Inferno demo) but this is still a brilliant game to get for CD32, despite the cheapskate packaging.
Rob Mead O platformer with a real sense of character. You're hooked into his technicolour world right from the word go and it's almost impossible to put the controller down. The pace is frenetic and you can make Zool move even faster by toggling the Intertia and Speed settings on the Options screen. There are three difficulty levels too.
Controlling Zool is simplicity itself. Press the Red button on the joypod to make him jump, the Green button to fire and both together for a baddie- beating leap. The D-pad is used for Zool's eight other gravity-defying moves.
No game is perfect, though, and Zool has more than its fair share of faults. For one thing, the backgrounds are so overwhelmingly colourful at times that it's hard to tell what's in the foreground. This means you end up being dob- and you get a copy of the stondard Amiga manual with a slip of paper showing you which keys to press on the CD32's controller. Tut, tut.
Sleepwalker also loses points for being almost unbearably frustrating.
DINOSAUR DETECTIVE AGENCY A timely release or a cynical cash-in on the fashion for all things Jurassic? It doesn't matter, really, because this game is complete and utter tosh.
Dinosaur Detective Agency is a cutesy platform game starring Sherlock Ness - the dino detective of the title. You have to help him traverse four different worlds in search of the clues which can help him solve the different cases his pals have reported to him.
Naturally, there are plenty of bonuses and nasties hanging around each level to help or hinder your progress. At the end of each level Of all tha detective agencies In all the world, why did this creep walk Into mine? He knew we were both victims of a sad movie casMn.

Rob Mud O GRAHAM GOOCH'S SECOND INNINGS When Graham Gooch's World Class Cricket arrived in the office it was met with the odd suspicious glance. Cricket and Amigas tend to make uneasy bedfellows, the intraca- cies of the gome being difficult to portray successfully.
But Audiogenic did a magnificent job combining great graphics and sound with convincing and realistic gameplay. It was by no means perfect, but good enough for me and a mate to play through the first half of the FA Cup Final.
You couldn't bowl a googly, but spin, swing and fast balls were all weapons in the armoury for budding Wasims, Warnes or, erm, Pringles.
Programmers: In-house I Publisher: Audiogenic 081-424 2244 Price: £ 17.99 ¦ Release: out now H AF Rating 80% Unfortunately, you have to sponk the monkey out of your joystick to get the ball to go ot Wasim speed.
And now Audiogenic have released Graham Gooch's Second Innings, an add-on to the original game with a whole host of extra features. The computer batsmen are improved, all 18 county squads are included and there are five historic matches to watch including 'Botham's Test' from 1981.
You must have the original game to use Second Innings, and the total cost for both is a fulsome £48. The game has been improved and it is a worthy addition to a good cricket sim but I would have liked to have seen the price nearer a tenner.
Steve Bradley O BILL ELLIOT'S NASCAR CHALLENGE It's a couple of years old this game and it shows. The graphics are fairly basic although the roar of the engine is splendid.
So what's Nascar then?
It stands for National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing and it takes place on short tracks and superspeedways across America. And as luck would have it, our Bill is the fastest driver of them all. He once qualified for a race averaging 212 mph - ond that's mighty fast.
The drivers have to be adept at racing on the many types of circuit - on both high-banked oval tracks and on flat road tracks.
There are three cars to choose from (a Ford, a Chevy and a Pontiac) and eight different circuits including one at Darlington. Options are plentiful and they include auto ond manual gears, and you can even drive on 'no damage'.
Programmers: Konami ¦ Publisher: Gametek 0753 553445 Price: £14,99 ¦ Release: out now ¦ AF Rating 50% How does it race? Well, just like a lot of other average racing games but I couldn't face the 300 laps of some of the tracks - it gets heavy going. The control works well after a bit of practice but on some circuits it can get a bit tedious because it's so easy. Another rather fiddly option is the car tuning section, where you can tweak the motor for the particular circuit you're about to tackle.
I'll leave you with wonderful quote from the box: "A stock car simulation that turns your disk drive into a pit pass to the most authentic racing environment available". Fine.

• Friendlies. Precise transfer markets club history, financial
position and much much more1 Why is FT2 not in the shops?
The very essence of a football strategy game is its accuracy With transfers happening every day. Rules being changed and players being injured, shop games are out-of-date the moment they come out. Some publishers issue yearly revisions That may be fine but not fine enough for us The FT2 you buy is 100% up-to-date We revise the program and data weekly There are no compromises Who wants to play a game that says that Fiorentina are in serie A r?ri or Newcastle in Division One? Who wants to play a game that features Roy Keane at Forest or Ruud Gullit still at Milan? No known football game is more
up-to-date than FT2 and that's a tact!

Cmdra (0*33 8*8131) ttn Compaen 10 (Hard Sued sop (0292*1 played the demo of Skidmarks on Amiga Format 51 Coverdisk, you'll know that it's the racingest, chasingest multi-player racing game ever to hit the screen. Vision Software are currently putting the finishing touches to the game, but to keep you occupied until it arrives they've devised this excellent competition.
Just model yourself a car using last month’s superb Imagine Coverdisk, or any other 3D package if you prefer. And you could win one of 20 fabulous remote control off-road racers.
The winning cars could even be included in a future release of Skidmarks on CD32.
These cars were provided by Vision Software, authors of Skidmarks, and Beatties' Virtual Reality stores, your one-stop shop for all your computer leisure software and hardware requirements.
BUILD A AMD ?
J DRIVING FAST CARS, off-road at break neck speeds, crashing and bashing obstacles and opposition out of the way. It's a fine pastime, but it's so difficult to get the opportunity to do it.
One way is to play Skidmarks, the outrageously playable racing game from Vision Software. Another way is to go out and buy an ATV (we really like the Renault Racoon concept car, if any of Renault's directors are feeling generous around Christmas) and get off-road for a bit of mud-plugging action.
Both these options are a bit difficult. The first because Skidmarks isn't on the shelves yet, but by the time you read this it will only be a few weeks away. The second because All Terrain Vehicles generally cost more than a few weeks' pocket money. In fact they cost more than a couple of years' wages!
The perfect solution is to get your own pocket sized off-road vehicle, a Tamiya radio-controlled scale model. So Vision Software and Beatties' Virtual Reality stores have got together with Amiga Formal to offer you this exclusive chance to get your hands on one of these extremely fast, fun and desirable motors. If you've already been to a Virtual Reality store, then you'll know that in each shop there's a virtual reality machine which you can get to grips with, plus each of the chain's 10 stores has a huge selection of Amiga software and hardware for sale.
Radio control fever Back to the cars... The Amiga Formal office was bitten by radio control fever in mid 1992 when one of the software houses gave us a Ferrari.
Unfortunately it was a 1 25 scale radio-controlled car, and even more unfortunately it ended up under the wheels of a passing Allegro.
But it was too late, the team were bitten, and our office next to the car park was ideal. Frank and Marcus would spend every lunchtime in the car park pulling power skids and wheel spins, even Damien (ex-editor - for new readers) would have a quick go and get involved in fits of four- wheel drive fun. Then they moved us up to the second floor and it sadly all went downhill.
Now there's a huge pile of Tamiya cars in our lab, and our thumbs are itching to get on the remote control joysticks again. But this time it's you that could be revving the motor for hours of automotive fun.
What you have to do To win one of these great cars, what you have to do is to build a car in your favourite 3D program
- last month's Imagine Coverdisk would be the ideal choice. So if
you turn to page 243 of this issue you will find a special
Imagine tutorial designed specifically to help you model motors
in Imagine. Once you have designed the vehicle of your dreams,
send it as an Imagine (or whatever 3D program you use) model,
with one or more renders of your car to this address: Imagine

NIGHTSHIFT Kixx ¦ £12.99 ¦ Reviewed AH 8 81% GARDIAXX Team 17 ¦ £10.99 ¦ Reviewed AF31 37% The shoot-em-up is one of my favourite genres. In fact, I can't think of anybody in the AF office who doesn't like flying high and having o blast. Team 17, nice picture on the box, Cardiaxx spelled with two x's, a tablespoon of flour - sounds like the right ingredients for some tremendous fun.
But no This is not a good shoot-em-up. Can't complain about the sound or graphics - very competent. It's just not a playable game. Every time you touch the joystick the ship veers off across the screen, the baddies hide in difficult-to-get-al pits, and you keep having to turn around and go back on yourself, which is brilliant in Defender but doesn't work quite os successfully in Cardiaxx.
8 10 KNIGHTS OF THE SKY ...... 'The young flyer walks out of the barracks. It is early dawn. The sky is beginning to lighten over Hunland. It will be another clear, cold day in Flanders.'
I love manuals, me. Engage in head-to-head bottles against historical enemies.
Use the word Fokker as many time os you like. Planes flew at a decent speed 9 10 Strange idea for a gome this. You're on a trial period for a night job at a toy factory. The boss is watching your every move lo see if you're good enough for a permanent position. Crikey, Marcus is watching me. Best make it look like I'm working hard. Nose. Grindstone. That's better. Choose to be either Frank or Fiona Fixit and head off to the factory floor where your task is to keep the machinery (known os the beast) running smoothly. Leap around the platforms plugging leaks, switching switches and generally
keeping the toys running off the conveyer belt in one piece. After all, who wants to buy Darth Voder with two heads?
Nightshift is a comical platform puzzler with _ many surprises. Lemmings, hoovers and many other nasties attempt to sabotage the evening's proceedings and to make matters worse it's against the clock. Great fun and original to bool.
Back in the First World War. You could see the enemy - no speed of sound stuff then. And Knighis of the Sky has a great feel to it. There are hundreds of missions, and at 13 quid, it's a bargain.
RAILROAD TYCOON LINKS Action Sixteen B £16.99 fl Reviewed AF22 92% Kixx B £16.99 B Reviewed AF36 92% I could never qulto manage to get the Leads to Harrogate railway off the ground. Or on the ground. Unks: not a helicopter, or a mombcr of the cat family, but a rather excellent golf game.
Golf is a fine game. Young Jonesy and myself recently pasted our beloved Ed and Frank at the local pitch-ond-putt course. Oh what joy. Loading Links takes a similar amount of time to a round of pitch-ond-putt. It also takes an age to redraw between shots and you need an external floppy drive to load it. A hard drive is what's really needed unless you have the patience of Job.
Gripes aside, Links is visually stunning - the golfer sprite looks superb.
The gameplay is excellent with detailed information about your shot at your mousetips. The variety of shots can take a while to pick up, unlike PGA Tour, but that's all part of part of the charm and the _ challenge. Eight people can play at one time although there are only three courses (another gripe). So if you've got a hard drive, then this is a great buy. If not, goodbye.
9 10 GRAHAM TAYLOR'S SOCCER CHALLENGE Buzz B £9.99 B Reviewed AF37 82% The challenge is not to take 'control' of the national team and employ bizarre tactics in Scandinavian countries, but rather to take the helm of a Third Division club and win football matches. Not that Graham's is a hard act to follow, what with him winning fewer trophies thon Manchester City. The gome is comprehensively packed to the gills with all the usuol management options.
Enter the transfer market - I hear you can get some nice deals on Leeds players at the moment although, as manager of Burnley, my £ 14,500 bid for Gary Speed was surprisingly rejected.
Graham Taylor's Soccer Challenge combines slick presentation (which is more than can be said for the real Grahom Taylor) with excellent arcade action. You even get match reports on newspaper back pages, and I'm just relieved that the tabloids haven't labelled me 'Turniphead Bradley'.
5 10 A point-and-click adventure gome with two pages of instructions. Now there's a novelty. Hook's a pirate and he's 'borrowed' your children, so you (Peter Bannining, Ne Pan) must get to Neverland (good album thot, ho ho, - oh nevermind) in order to rescue them from his evil clutches. So with the help of Tinkerbell you toddle off asking all sorts of pertinent questions around the port and getting insulted by all and sundry for showing such a healthy curiosity - which rather begins to grote after a while.
Hook is slickly presented but it lacks the qualities that made Monkey Island (itself a recent budget release) a great game. Graphically it's not as stylish, and it doesn't have the options, depth or humour of it's illustrious counterpart. The character interaction doesn't evolve, it repeats the same messages off pal. Pat who? Hook is not bad, but it's nowhere near great.
Empire building in the golden age of the railroads is the name of the game.
Build tracks, stations, even whole industries in one of four regions - Eastern and Western USA, Europe and England. Each region has its own economy which has to be studied before you decide where to invest your capital.
Stations run on a supply and demand basis and if you’re not making any money you won't last long.
If successful, you can then move on to other towns, increasing your rail network, expanding your rolling stock, building bridges and seeing off rivals in fare wars until your empire stretches across the entire game world. Railroad Tycoon is not a visual extravaganza, but the gameplay is compelling.
Out of my way, I'm off to build a railroad through my Granny's back garden.

MINDSCAPE DREAMLANDS COMPILATION* Silmarils ¦ £29.99 ¦ Storm Master (AF33 90%) ¦ Ishar (AF37 76%) ¦ Transarctica (AF45 60%).
STORM MASTER John Kettley is o weatherman, though unfortunately he has yet to be promoted to Storm Master.
Countries at war, the discovery of flight, seo monsters, a pinch of salt - sounds like the right ingredients for a strategic affair with the odd bit of arcade action thrown in for good measure. And this looks good as well, with its impressive intro sequence showing the Storm Master cooking up some tremendous weather.
You are the leader of the island of Eolia and the object is to win the war, or rather wind the war, by calling up the Storm Master to give you a prevailing wind to help your aircraft on their way.
And there's even a most enjoyable dogfight section to tackle when you get over the sea in your plane. Recommended.
TRANSARCTIGA Centuries after a severe Nuclear Winter, the survivors live on large trains. Yes, you read that right.
Folk travel around a rail network controlled by the evil Viking Union, trading to make a living. You, os luck would have it are o good guy, out to smash the Viking powerhold. Trade mammoths and slaves, equip your train with weapons ond travel the scenic Settle to Carlisle route.
Unfortunately, Transarctica is o rather pedestrian affair, and it won't be long before you're back ot the BR station taking numbers. But I'll leave you with this cheery Christmas thought - a quote from the press release that accompanies Transarctica suggests that it's a 'frighteningly realistic scenario of o possible future for our planet’.
Merry Christmas.
ISHAR Gesundheil. Very funny eh? Anyway, it's on with the role-ploying fun. This time the evil happens to be in o place colled Kendoria, and you've got to head up to fortress Ishor to kill the bad man. On the way you gather a merry band, pick things up, kill monsters and search for clues. It's a good looking game this, as well as being rather large - 20,000 locations apparently, but don't quote me on that because I only saw 18,762. Pleasing fayre, though some may find it a bit of a plodder.
An all round good egg of a compilation (if you like RPGs, of course), _ although I wouldn't want to spend Christmas Day playing Transarctica.
7 10 COMBAT CLASSICS 2 Empire ¦ £29.99 ¦ FI9 Stealth Fighter (AH 6 91%) ¦ Pacific Islands (AF35 93%) ¦ Silent Service II (AF28 82%) F-1 9 STEALTH FIGHTER There's lots of war in the Combat Classics 2 compilation. Aeroplane, tank and submarine warfare is the order of the day ond in F-19 Stealth Fighter you con gun for glory as o new pilot in ond fly through masses of missions os you attempt to get promoted through the ranks.
As luck would hove it, the aircraft is so difficult to pick up on rador, the enemy has a heck of a time trying to shoot you down because you are masked in a cloak of radar invisibility. Much of the game is taken up with ensuring that you maintain this advantage by monitoring enemy radar positions. F-l 9 is o comprehensive flight sim and though not graphically stunning, it's a worthy addition to a combat fan's collection.
PACIFIC ISLANDS Tanks up next in Pacific Islands, the jewel in this compilation pock. More Americans and more war as you battle the North Koreans who have invaded the Yoma Yama islands. You can mobilise up to four units in your attempts to drive out the occupying forces. It's a tactical affair, ond success depends on your ability to manage all ospects of the campaign.
For example, if you damage civilian villages as you fight it out with the enemy forces, you'll find that your money supply dries up because you lose support for the cause at home. Pocific Islands is more a test of tactical and slrtegic skill than just a tank battle blast-em-to-kingdom-come job, but it does still involve plenty of shooting action. A most excellent thing it is, too.
SILENT SERVICE II Sneaky business this, sneaking up to ships and torpedoing them out of the water. Ideal for anyone who yearns to be a World War II submariner, Silent Service II places you in command of a sub in the Pacific, pitting you ogainst the Japanese.
It's best to start at practice level where you can fire off a few rounds at some defenceless sap before heading off for some serious war. There's loads of detail but the game is surprisingly easy to get in to. Once you've mastered the basics, Silent Service can be a tense and atmospheric experience. Combat Classics _ 2 is a fine compilation for those with a keen interest in all things warlike.

I've been stuck for over a month on Curse of Enchontia. I've entered the castle, picked up a gold ring ond pulled a book in the library which operated a secret panel. I walked through the panel into a room where a witch started costing spells ot me.
I'm stuck in a circle on the floor with a flashing ring around it. I ended the first spell by sucking the ghost into the vacuum cleaner and the second with the fire extinguisher, but a third spell of fire keeps knocking me down and I still can't move from inside the circle. Please help.
D Chamberlain, Shrewsbury Try attacking the witch with the fan - which you should have picked up near the portcullis earlier - when she unleashes her next fireball. This should be enough to kill her.

MAD ABOUT SENSIBLE I read the European Champions review in AF52, buf the question is, is it up to the standards of Sensible Soccer 92 93? When will Sensible World of Soccer be released? What are the game's new qualities?
Barry Smith, Dunfermline European Champions isn't a patch on Sensible Soccer. It's nowhere near os playable and the graphics have a nasty habit of slowing the game down. You'd be better off getting a job as England Manager. If you want a footie games that's going to really knock your socks off, you'd better wait for Sensible World of Soccer to be released at Easter.

STARDUST This is actually a super-charged '90s version of Asteroids - all the way from Hungary - but when we saw the amazing 3D tunnel effect on the bonus levels, we knew we just had to get a coverdisk demo.
And we did. These graphics really put the consoles to shame.
BLOB This 3D puzzler from Core caught a lot of people (including us) by surprise when the finished product arrived unannounced on our desks. We moved heaven and earth to get you loads of levels and give you a taste of what its innovative gameplay is all about.
CANNON FODDER PLUS The game that everyone's talking about - but only AMIGA POWER brought you four Interactive- Diary-Of-A-Game levels showing the development of the game AND a special big-prize Sensible Software quiz. Incredible.
DEFENDER But it's not all glossy commercial demos round here - oh no.
AMIGA POWER always keeps an eye out for the most playable of public domain games - classics like Blitz Basic’s Defender (shown here) and, the mother of all arcade games, Pong.
SNAPPERAZZI + LEVEL ONE + BLACK LEGEND Wake up and smell the news! This is where we track down the hottest leads and vaguest rumours, and then turn them all into - TRUE STORIES!
Tc t C OVER EXPOSURE!
Computer ut soon from Alternative, Snapperazzi is a mar shops new platform-style title that, as far as we oooeio Iron' iuftcr know, is the first Amiga game to feature three different instances of product placement. As you travel around seven worlds of page-three-girl photo opportunities, you'll also be enjoying ads for Fizzy Chewits, Domino s Pizza and, of course, The Sun newspaper, whose idea this whole thing was in the first place. The last we heard, the coders were IS IT A record?
Pulling out all the f-stops to get it ready for Christmas, so you should be able to snap it up around then. AMIGA POWER says: Will it have an Our daguerreotype-loving hero clearly has a waterproof camera cate.
End-of-level Guardian?
It's a pun on 'Space (Ho ho. - Ed) Invaders', see?
Clever wording, Dateline: London. HMV Oxford St, already the world s largest record store, has lust opened the world's largest computer and video games department. Boasting over 6.000 , square feet of floor space, they reckon L they'll be able to stock over 10.000 different titles, all in shiny high-tech futuristic |A surroundings with big Tvs and stuff. In fact, when the AP team were there recently, we were quite shocked to find our game- playing exploits being broadcast on screens all over the shop, so don't say we didn't warn you. Alright? Anyway, if you're tempted to pop in. It's on Oxford
St (in London, obviously), just along from Oxford Circus and up a bit from Regent SL There's even a picture (oh. And a fantastic £1.000 compo) in the December issue of AMIGA POWER if you need any more help finding it. I mean, what do we look like, your mother?
5=13 Mmm. Hum. We all love pin* here at AP. Arc you listening, Domino?-' Black Legend Software is a new y label devoted to bringing you top games from all around the world.
Already on their books is last month's lumpy coverdisk star.
Fatman. (full game out soon) rapidly pursued by another cutesy platformer.
Fantabulous. And some sort of Wild West game that we don't yet fully understand the idea of. It's called Gunslingers, anyway. Then, in December, we can all look forward to a very high-speed 3D adventure - provisionally entitled Outsiders - and a fully-animated Flashback-style arcade adventure. Out Ot Time.
And this sounds like it's just the tip of the iceberg - the company claim that they've currently got over 500 programmers working for them, on over 100 different projects. Looks like 1994's going to be a good year all round then, eh?
ALMOST LEGENDARY Look up the phrase ex-demo coder in the AMIGA POWER Dictionary Of Received Journo Cliches, and you'll find it defined as a "broadly meaningless term used to describe the author of any game that scrolls at an acceptable speed”. Still, cynicism aside, you can't deny that those wacky foreign assembler junkies have come up with some pretty impressive treats in the past, and it looks like we're headed for more!
AMIGA ROWER RECOMMENDS + COMING NEXT MONTH NEWS RECOMMENDS J7_ Not sure what you’d like for Christmas? Hey, no problem - AMIGA POWER is here with our personal pick of the hottest releases from the last six months.
JULY Nippon Safes Inc (Kompart) In an odd move (or point- and-click adventure games of that classic Monkey Island variety, in Nippon Sales you've got to manoeuvre not one. Or two, but THREE characters through the bewildering and sprawling (but always spotlessly clean) streets of a modern Japanese city. None of these hapless adventurers are actually Japanese however, and neither are the programmers (who are all Italian, apparently) so it all ends up as a bit of a cross-cultural mish-mash.
Fortunately, as cross- cultural mish-mashes go, this happens to be one of the Amiga's finest.
AUGUST Battle Isle '93 (Blue Byte) While there are plenty of wargames knocking around, the list of user- friendly. Playable, fast, two-player wargames could be very easily written on the back of a postage stamp, in crayon. And yes, the name of Battle Isle 93 is crudely drawn in red wax, simply because it's the best, most user-friendly and all-round fabbest wargame on the market.
It's more of an update rather than a sequel to Battle Isle, and the pace is a tad pedestrian, but the new setting, playing areas, units and weapons will keep all you wargamers glued to your trusty Amigas through the winter.
SEPTEMBER Syndicate (EA) Yikes! Like a bunch of small children in a sweet shop we just didn't know which one to choose from this month's batch. Would it be MicroProse’s obscenely playable helicopter sim Gunship
2000. Or would that fantastic platformer-with- attitude Yo! Joel
make the grade? Or perhaps the real-time wargame brilliance
of Virgin’s Dune 2 would prove to be the deciding factor.
But the pick of the bunch is Bullfrog's hideously amoral
god game Syndicate. With strategy, taxes, research AND
armoured cyborgs, there truly is something for everyone
here. Buy the lot of 'em. That's our advice.
OCTOBER Soccer Kid (Krisalis) Just to prove to you that we only spend vast amounts of time slagging off platform games simply because there's a seemingly endless string of crap ones, here we are devoting page space to a great one. He's a funny kid romping his way through levels set all around the world, but the twist here is that he's got a football.
Soccer Kid can do a plethora of brilliant moves, and can use them against baddies to kill them in an extra special way. It just goes to show that you can do something different with platform games if you put a bit of thought and imagination into them.
NOVEMBER Micro Machines (Codemasters) No. Not those little toys that you can buy in the morning and then lose in the afternoon, but an excellent console conversion featunng the same easy- to-misplace model vehicles. It's an overhead racing game where the racers are less than an inch long. Thrill as you swerve around baked beans on the breakfast table, spill as you fail to make it across the ruler bridge and fall to your doom between school desks, and gasp in sheer amazement as you break free of the plughole whirlpool. For once, size really doesn't matter.
DECEMBER Cannon Fodder (Virgin) It’s got to be admitted that those Sensible boys are masters of the intuitive control system. I mean, all you have to do is pick up a joystick, and within two minutes, you've got to grips with the controls of Sensi Soccer. Now they've gone and done it again, with a tongue-in-cheek mouse-controlled wargame that puts the 'grin' back into grenade'. Bowl bad guys over with small-arms fire and gasp in despair as you accidentally blow up half your platoon for the twentieth time. When it comes to games, it seems Sensi can do no wrong.
Owe.

BATTLE ISLE 2 ¦ i . II w Briefly: Life can sometimes be cruel to wargamers. It's a savage world out there, with cute platformers and fast action shoot-'em-ups leaping out from every comer, so to anyone interested in large- scale tank warfare, the boys from Blue Byte are heaven sent. Time after time, this team have sat in their Mulheim offices and produced battle sims that play Something wicked this way comes. The coolest place to be is in AP’s highly exclusive previews section.
Extremely well in one- ______¦_; and two-player mode without s' making you plough through a 4 lA i 1 4 ¦ - twelve- H" - billion-page manual. Meanwhile, on the ground, the tanks started rolling inexorably onwards.
The creators speak: After the successes of Battle Isle. the mission disks, Battle Isle '93 and the extremely popular History Line 1914-
1918. It comes as no great surprise to find that there aren't any
major changes to the basic game engine for Battle Isle 2.
The map is made up of hexagonal units, and the action's
still broken up Into move and attack phases, but pretty
much everything else is bigger, better and generally
flashier than before. One of the authors took me on a
whirlwind tour.
There are far more different units than before, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, but this A time there's the additional problem of logistics to deal with. In war, the recurrent problem is that of getting enough supplies up to the from H line, and by adding this element.
You have to concentrate on planning your attack."
A problem of the Battle Isle T games is that every time a unit goes into battle.
they become more experienced and M harder to defeat, f i I I until they're virtually
- *-iS!se 9uaran,eed vic,0fy- JMS “Although we felt this H was
a good idea, the experienced units were far too tough, so we've
now evened this out.
“One of the main changes of the game is the terrain, and how it affects the game. We now have lour height levels in Ihe game, which makes the use of planes much more realistic. At the lowest flying level, planes can't fly over mountains and can come under light ground fire, but are at a prime height for ground attack. If they fly higher, then they can safely over fly most enemy units, but are susceptible to anti-aircraft missiles.
Throughout the game, the seasons change from wet springs and autumns to dry summers and frozen winters. This means that lowlands are often too boggy for tracked units, but also that rivers and lakes are passable in winter when they're iced up."
The other main change is that the two-player mode is no longer on a split screen. By including radar and AWACS early warning planes, this means lhat you have to find your enemy before you can engage them, which sounds I brilliant, adding Game: Battle Isle 2 Publisher: Kompart Authors: Blue Byte ETA: Mid 1994 ¦¦¦BA another layer of realism to what is already an exceptionally detailed game.
Verdict so far: The lack of a split screen means that you’re going to have to play the game either on two computers linked together, or alternately on the same one. Hiding your movements from your opponent, which is both time-consuming and a nuisance as it interrupts your thoughts. Hmm.
It's such a big game that it's probably going to be A1200 only, and even then will probably need be hard drive installable.
It's a small price (Er, relatively. - Ed) to pay for what's set to be one of the best wargames ever.

"0" I' L. Game: Cool Spot Publisher: Virgin Author: John Twiddy
ETA: Dec ’93 Briefly: Never before has a small red dot gained
so much press attention as this little guy. He started out life
as the red blob on the side of a can of 7-Up, and was released
on the Mega Drive in America as a tie-in character, but when if
came to his UK debut there was some kind of horrid mix-up. Out
went the fizzy drink tie-in, which left all the green bottles
in the game with little or no reason to be there.
Thankfully, no- one really noticed or cared, because everyone thought the UK Mega Drive game was quite splendid, super and lovely, and went out to buy it in droves.
Since Virgin aren't silly, they've decided to release an Amiga version of this console smash hit in time for Christmas. Who says capitalism is a bad thing, huh?
The creators speak: John Twiddy of Jaguar Software Consultants is working night and day on the Amiga conversion and told me that the Amiga Coot Spot is going to be virtually identical to the Mega Drive original, so I suppose I'd better explain what that one's like.
In one of those illogical chains of events that frequently happens in platform games, all of Cool Spot's friends have been kidnapped and ll incarcerated in floating metal cages. The way to bust them out is to dash around collecting small, not-at-all-cool spots, which somehow allow him to open the cages. The problem is that Spot's only about an inch and a half tall, so it’s a bad and quite literally big world out there.
As he battles his way across beaches and bathrooms, behind skirting boards and through people's bedrooms, he comes into conflict with untold masses of cute and lovable bad guys. Being a cast-off of a soft drink, he's got astonishing carbonated powers, which enable him to fire of bolts of, err, fizz.
These fearsome CO: blasts allow him to blast his way to freedom for himself and his buddies. Yeah!
The most impressive thing about the original is the number of animation frames for the central character, who leaps, struts, swings, yawns and yo-yos his way through the game in a non-stop blur of amusing ways. “All the animations that were in the original are going to be in this version,' said John.
“Although the game's going to look the same, I hope that I've improved it on all playability aspects. The sound’s going to be the same as well.” Verdict so far: I've played a couple of levels of the Amiga version, which seem to back up what John told me. As you can see from the screenshots there's still quite a bit of work to be done on the backgrounds, but even now it's a very visually impressive game to play.
The thing is. Does the Amiga-owning public want another platformer? It seems to me that although they're the core of the console market, computer owners are more discerning and favour more in-depth games. I've no doubt that Cool Spot will be a hit, but I'm not convinced that it'll be the smash that it was on the console market.

- Hey babe, this is Just on* of my CANNON FODDER The game of the
year? War, it seems, has never been so much fun k A A IE
reviews Publisher: Virgin Authors: Sensible Price: £29.99
Release: November Having to write pages of reviews every month,
I'm always on the look out for some concise and snappy quotes
to put around the page (Known as ‘Cali Outs', technical term
Ians. - Ed) but this time those Sensible boys have done my job
for ne “War has never been so much fun,’ they tell me, in a
groovetastic song that starts off the game, drums the message
home and sets the tongue-in-cheek, boot-m-mouth 'one of the
game brilliantly.
This year, the Sensible boys won't be getting that Nobel prixe.
So, boring game details next. The game is made up ot 23 missions which are spread over 72 different maps. There are five different terrains - Jungle. Desert, Arctic. Heathland and Underground Base, and although they’re fairly well mixed up, there’s a definite weighting towards jungle levels at the beginning and underground levels at the end So why buy it? Well, for a start it's massively simple to get into. You start off the game with a squad of men. And at the end of every mission, you get a further 15 recruits, which initially seems a tad excessive However, by the time you get to Mission Six
and your boys are being slaughtered like cattle, you start to realise why you get so many troops. Every time a Modem warfare is hell, especially when you can't swim and shoot at the same time. With rockets coming in from all directions, don’t expect many of your boys to be home for tea.
AMIGA POWER SPECIAL EDITION 0 t*r Alone in the arctic, our . Heroes suddenly started in the desert, but you never know how they're going to react to you.
You want to know more before you buy this game?
Blimey, how much? Okay, how about hyper-intelligent baddies in helicopters who'll trash you in the open, but can be evaded by hiding in the treeline or holes? How about a completely interactive terrain, so your troops bounce over every bump, slide across every ice floe, fall down every cliff and even sink in the swamps? It’s another incredible game feature, since you can blow down fences with grenades and destroy huts with explosives, but you’ve got to look out for bits of debns as they fly off in all directions. You’ve also got to keep a look out for suspicious lumps in the ground as many of
the levels are littered with lethal booby traps of all descriptions.
And you want blood? Good, 'cos Cannon Fodder's got masses of it, with THE BOTTOM LINE soldier survives a mission, he's promoted, and his accuracy, range and rate of fire is increased You get quite attached to anyone who survives more than a couple of levels, but since everyone in the game has an equally tenuous grip on life, there's inevitably a horhble moment when a rocket with his name on it comes whooshing in and he gets his.
You control your boys with the mouse, and click on the left button to move, the nght to fire and both to throw a grenade or fire a rocket, depending on what you've selected The scrolling system works so intuitively that most of the time you're not even aware of it.
Still not convinced yet? Well, the missions involve lots and lots of killing, with the occasional spot of hostage rescue thrown in before masses more killing.
Complete carnage doesn't impress you?
How about four channels of sound that completely immerse you in each world?
What do I mean? Well, if you come out of the jungle (squawks, rustling, etc) and get to a river (running water) but hear distant rotors (whump, whump. Whump), then you know there's a helicopter near, and that it's time to hide. Muted gunfire tells you that enemy soldiers can see you and are heading your way, and the flop-sweat fear of hearing a rumbling tank engine has to be experienced to be fully understood Thinking that it sounds like 72 maps of pretty much the same thing7 Wrong! Although you start off the game with a fairly simple run-around- and-shoot-everything approach, you quickly
cotton onto the fact that this tactic only works for the first few levels, and that a bit more finesse is required for later levels. By the time you get to Mission Seven, many of the levels are puzzles in the Lemmings mould, and successfully completing the level depends as much on you planning ahead as it does on your reactions How exactly do you get past the helicopter, evade the gun turrets, blow up the bunkers and then blast down the stockade wall so that a civilian can escape to his house7 Well, take it from me. It's hugely difficult and involves a tank.
Yes. Tanks' And skidoos and jeeps and helicopters firing heat-seeking missiles. Whatever fearsome vehicles the bad guys have got. Then at some point in the game you get to drive them as well and whenever you find a ramp, then rest assured there's lots of Dukes Of Hazzard' tomfoolery to be had.
To cap it all 1here are civilians too. There are cute little eskimos in the arctic, natives in the jungle and even moseying gunslingers each little guy blowing apart in a hail of gunfire, or lying around moaning and squirting after a spring-loaded spear has shot out of the ground and impaled him.
And then there’s the... Oh. Just go and buy the flipping thing.
• CAM WINSTANLEY GAME REVIEWS PRIME MOVER Game: Prime Mover
Publisher: Psygnosis Authors: In house Price: E25.99 Release:
Out now.
No, really.
What is it about racing games? After issue 30's fantastic violation of the laws of time in FI 7 Challenge. Psygnosis have picked up the gauntlet ot ndiculousness and come up with something even more astounding - the amazing moving mountain. In Prime Mover's Japanese racetrack, the hilariously-named Nontendo' course, most of the scenery is dominated by a huge snow-capped mountain, looking not at all unlike the legendary Mount Fuji which appears in most Japanese racing-track games. As you crest the long hill coming up to the start finish line, this imposing peak lies dead in your centre of
vision, providing a strangely stirring backdrop to the action. Until your second lap.
That is, when you notice with puzzlement that, as you climb towards the line. Mount Fuji (or. As it’s probably actually called in the game. 'Mount Fudgy' or something equally side-splitting) has cunously and almost imperceptibly shifted a couple of screen inches to the right, leaving it haltway to the edge of the screen. Do another lap, and you' probably be only partly surprised to discover that several million tons of earth and rock has somehow disappeared from view altogether. Oh dear Sadly, that's not the worst tlaw in Pnme Mover, only the funniest one. For a game that's been about two
years in development, there's a stunning lack of almost anything at all in it. It looks like something from 1988 (Super Hang-On.
Which was more or less the Amiga's first motorbike racer, leaves this a mile behind graphically), there aren't any new or exciting features of any kind, the control is rudimentary skidding around, the sound is the usual drone combined with tuneless music, and the now-ubiquitous weather effects are simply a poor imitation of the ones everybody and their dog's already done. You rarely see any opponents after the start, there isn't any indication of where they actually are on the track map. When you smash into a roadside barrier at 140mph and suddenly drop to 50, you don't actually, visually,
appear to be going any slower at all, the roadside scenery is the same all the way round most of the courses so there's no way of really learning the track layouts, which is the only way of getting round without hitting things (the incredible shifting scenery hardly helps), and... I could go on, but you’d only get depressed.
The Amiga motorbike-racing game market has long been dominated by two truly excellent titles.
Super Hang-On is lovely- looking, arcade-fast and intensely exciting (and eight quid), while No Second Pnze is beautiful in a different kind of way.
Equally speedy and thrillingly - realistic. Prime Mover , isn't fit to wax either of * their leathers.

CURSE OF ENCHANTIA Q'What must I do after I have got out of the well?"
Allan Andu, Holland A By wearing the mask when you climb into the bucket (created by attaching the mud to the seaweed and the mud and seaweed to the twigs), the F A INTERCEPTOR Qben Cassie of Cornwall was having more than his fair share of problems rescuing the pilot and launching the pod.
A “Fly as low and slow as possible towards the drowning pilot. You should be aim to drop the pod (Shift and
F) just before passing over the pilot by paying close attention
to your rudder and external camera views (especially the
satellite). By the way. Does anybody know how to destroy the
earner sub? I've been trying for five years, having even
landed on it before trying to blast it to smithereens. Any
suggestions?"
Matt Bainton, Bristol BLACK CRYPT Qyou probably didn’t think that it was possible to hog The Last Resort in any way, but fans may remember that
13. 741598 percent of issue 30's juicy pages concerned a rather
hefty chunk of questions from Jonas Lindolmer of Sweden. And,
unbelievably, someone was actually daft enough to reply. (I
seem to remember some talk of prizes, so I'll see what we can
do.)
O A “(a) The Soultaker. To destroy the Soultaker you must have located all three crowns. (Cue sound of Jonas’ jaw hitting the floor.) Don’t worry - it’s far more a matter of time than anything else.
Put them on the skulls and the blocked passage will open. Go in and explore the area with haste where you will be confronted by the Soultaker.
(b) Medusa: She can only be killed with the mirror shield. Three
mirror keys must be located in total. To her southeast is a
door; go into the passageway as fast as you can and a wall
will vanish. (Repeat if this doesn't work first time.) This
leads to a new area which in turn leads to a key.
You’ll have to scan the walls for the switch to disable the teleporter to reach it.
(c) Ramdemons: Go down the hole.
Run your eyes over the walls lor a switch.
One of the pillars will move, and you will get to use your ‘O' key. Always use the Wizard Sight spell for auto-mapping and to reveal secret doors on the map.
The Blackjack armour? That, as you probably expected, is just armour."
Angus Brown, Aberdeen CADAVER Q(a) How do you...? (b) What does...? And (c) Where do you...?
Enquired Michael Hall of Clywd.
A “(a)... pass the two flares? Drop two sacks in front of the flares, then jump on the sacks. Place dipsticks in front of the sack to stop the flares and use the potion to get down and up again.
(b) ...the lever in the room where you blow up the barrel do?
Pull the lever for the blue casket (you should now have
three). Insert a holy symbol in each casket, put the caskets
into a strong box, pull the lever and collect the spell.
CASES CLOSED Of course, from time to time, there are conundrums that even the mighty games-playing brain of Rich Pelley cannot solve. In which case he asks you, the readers - and this is how you reply...
(c) ...use the friendly slime? It collects otherwise unreachable
coins and pushes objects out from under ledges."
David Evans, Bridgewater CHUCK ROCK 2 AMIGA POWER SPECIAL EDITION Qalex Collier of Maidstone had ground to a rocky halt trying to overcome Brick Jagger.
A “When Brick appears, run to the left.
He will stop above you, then run right and he will come down. Hit him and repeat the process until he dies."
Daniel Jones, Banbury THUNDERHAWK Qthe first mission of the Alaska campaign of Thunderhawk was getting on Ben Vowles of Bristol’s goat.
"Destroy the forces attacking Ice Station Omega (there's no need to destroy the buildings), then go northeast to catch a convoy of trucks making off with the biologicals. Destroy these and return to HQ. It's best to take a radar jamming pod for this mission as attacking aircraft can really shorten your day."
Michael S Hoffs, Glasgow monster at the top of the well will try to kiss you, but jump down in disgust when the mask falls. Don't forget the gem behind the rock before heading off.
Q'But having talked to Ultar to gain entry through Weregate, how do you pass the cave section? I have entered the second cavern, but what are the skull combinations?"
Stuart Freeston. Bilston A Look at them both, then pull the right one. Simple.
HUNTER Q“On the Mission I can find the first man, and then get to the old man but he does not elicit any information. Can you help? I have also found every vehicle, with the exception of the hovercraft. Do you have any coordinates?"
Si Quinn, Bolton A Bribery is the answer to your first query. Hand over money to the old man and continue doing so until he refuses more. TALK to him and he will reveal the whereabouts of the second man. And the hovercraft? A rough map that I once scrawled down reminds me that it's on the main island, sort of in the centre but over to the left a bit. There appear to be plenty of cars, vans and even the odd bike or two on the island, so go get one of those and scout around.
THE LAST RESORT FIRST SAMURAI Q'How do you kill the big baddy on Level Four? I have played through the level so many times I could do it with my eyes closed, but every time I reach the end I die."
Gareth Bright. Oldham A I can sympathise with you here because once upon a time. I found myself in a similarly sticky situation. As with end-of-level-bosses throughout the globe it is a question of formulating then perfecting a certain strategy of attack.
Mine was to stand towards the left of the screen, face left and let loose with a continuous stream of flying slashes which the robot should periodically walk into. It should be clear if he is going to hit you - in which case you can edge back: if you reach the edge of the screen then you can fire a dagger, leap over him as he blocks it and continue from the other side.
GOBLIINS 2 Q "Frustration has reached mouth- foaming proportions and sanity is at risk! (Wahey. These Gobliins players are an excitable bunch. - Ed) How the blazes do you get the egg from the chicken on the Giant screen?
I have tried strangling it. Stoning it to death, even setting it alight. I did actually get the egg once before, but I haven't the faintest idea how."
COMPLETE CONTROL Peter Marsh. Nottingham A So let s just re-cap - to make sure you haven't missed anything. You've tried strangling it, stoning it and setting it on fire. But have you tned hitting it with a sausage? It's worth a thought.
INDIANA JONES AND THE FATE OF ATLANTIS QT have followed your solution to the graphic adventure but have ground to something of a halt. Near the end we are instructed to find a crescent-shaped gear, the bronze-spoked wheel, the machine part and a bronze gear. I can find the first three, but where is the last?
Nowhere in the entire solution is this information given."
David Washer, Wembley A Wanna bet? Open issue 24, turn to page 80, and locate the first T of the heading. Scan left a fraction and, in arguably small but perfectly legible wnting you should see the words ‘Bronze gear' and an arrow pointing to the relevant room. (It's near the machine room in the outer ring). Mine, I think, is a pint of Pepsi and some dry-roasted peanuts.
HOOK II Q'How do you get the Pirate's uniform? I've tried pinching it from Mrs Sweedles' washing line with the pole."
Sirish Parekh, Preston A I trust you already own the hat.
Knock on Mrs Smeedles’ wash-room door but - and this is the trick - swing back on the rope before she opens it. Go back all the way round to round about where the game started and you should be able to snatch the iacket with the pole. If you were already doing this, you just need to do it faster!
Q 'l have no money to purchase a magnet to get Dr Chop's clock" Kerem Cetindamar, Leicester A Try to pick up the pots next to the portcullis on Hook's ship and you will find some gold. This should secure you the magnet from the Pirate tailors that you have been dreaming of.

S o ¦o O $ m x w ¦u m o r m o H o o 0 THE rite ) f In the AMIGA POWER letters page, a year is a very long time. Exactly 365 days, 52 weeks or 12 months, to be precise. Anyway, here’s a brief selection of some of the post we received during 1993 - just to give you some idea of what to expect when you go out and buy the magazine for real.

Ismm 22 Feb 'SHAMANISTIC LEMMINGS' admit it, she's a babe. Even though you're not a very pretty bunch (in fact, you’re all damn ugly) you should still ask her out. If she's still not taken then you lot are a sad bunch (apart from Stuart Campbell 'cos he's cool).
I'm yours forever, Lisa Andrew, Germany This is just one of the many letters we get every month singing the praises of AP's lovely Ad Assistant, and, coincidentally, insulting the rest of us. Sadly, the only pic in this supplement is of ‘cool' Stuart Campbell (page 2. Fact fans), so you'll have to go and buy the proper magazine to check out the rest of the team in all their photogenic glory. Have fun now.
Dear AMIGA POWER, I like Shamanistic lemmings, me.
Me. I like Sliamanistic lemmings.
I always say it boosts a lemming's credibility no end if he adds a few Shamanistic tendencies to his personality.
The more the better in most cases But I digress. I like Shamanistic lemmings.
Me. I like Shamanistic lemmings.

Imm 2S May 'I WISH TO PARTICIPATE' To: AMIGA POWER, I have seen your magazine and I wish to 'NOT A VERY PRETTY BUNCH' Men ol AMIGA POWER.
Don't any of you fancy Lisa Kellett? Go on.
ELOCUTION LESSONS winner 'WE CAN HANDLE A FEW MORE RUDIES' Dear Persons at that great magazine called AMIGA POWER.
POWER SPECIAL EDITION Crap. Crap. Crap. Crap. Crap. Crap. Crap, crap, crap, crap, crap, crap, crap, crap, crap (Snip! - Ed), crap. Crap.
CRAP! Is this the only naughty word you're allowed to print (apart from •@!fl' which I don’t understand)? Your reader poll discovered that 79% of your readers are 15 and over -1 think we can handle a few more rudies.
As the great Ben Elton once said. "TV is built on the superstition that only a three-year old with a sponge for a brain is watching." I sometimes wonder if this magazine is like that, frightened to print a word like (We can't print this word. - Ed) just in case a three-year old will read it and copy you.
The frequency of the word "crap" is phenomenal. For example, in the Downers section of issue 19's Poof review.
Stuart says, "maybe it's just me being crap." This could have been replaced with "maybe it's just me being crap (We can t print this word. - Ed) " to much better effect. If the word (We can’t print this word. - Ed) upsets that miserable (We can t print this word. - Ed) Editor of yours, you could edit key letters like the i' in (We can't print this word. - Ed). You could refer to the controls of Kick Off as "The controls are an absolute (We can t print this word. - Ed), but they ’re a piece of (We can 't print this word. - Ed) when you get used to them."
O participate in it. May I have your terms, please?
Your friend, Hameed Yousef Mhameed, Kuwait Our terms, eh? Well, a couple of bunches of daffs and a Playpeople annual from 1976 should do it.
Imim 26 Jun. '93 'BEING A PSYCHIATRIST' To all at AMIGA POWER.
Whilst I’m probably one of the most aged readers of your periodical, a young at heart 53,1 can t help but find this computer games lark just so jolly enjoyable. I’ve also found that it helps many of my patients.
Being a psychiatnst, I've recently noticed how playing computer games reduces tension and allows patients an outlet for their anger and frustration.
Greg, before his tragic and unfortunate death, found computer games For that very nice letter, can I please have a copy of Civilization for my Amiga?
Yours (We can’t print this word. - Edjingly, Dal* Bird, Cannock (We can't print this word. Ed) off. But seriously, Dale, it 's a funny old world. You can put Die Hard on the telly, no problem, with hundreds and hundreds of people being horribly killed, shot in the knees and oozing blood everywhere, but every time Bruce Willis says "(We can't print this word. Ed)", it has to get dubbed out so he looks like a goldfish, or replaced with "Flip ", or something equally ridiculous. Of course, swearing for its own sake isn 't big or hard or clever. But, personally, I don't think there's any such
thing as bad' language (except in the sense of having a crap command of English), only language with different levels of expressiveness. How can a word ever possibly be offensive in its own right? It's a word, tor God's sake! (Actually, better be careful, the ‘G‘ word's a bit borderline as well). That said, the Moral' Majority (in fact a very small minority with ears in high places) exert a powerful hold on this country, to the extent that a magazine can be removed from shelves for printing the most ridiculously wet of phrases - our erstwhile sister magazine Your Sinclair was once stopped from
using a covermounted door hanger bearing the words "Bog Off " (oh no, we re in trouble now!), on the grounds that WH Smith, purveyors of the printed word to a nation, refused to stock the magazine if it went ahead with it. We ourselves can't even use the word 'sod' (taking our careers in our hands here), because, seemingly, it's actually short for (It is. And we can't print this word. - Ed). It s a sick and disgusting state of affairs, but there 's not really much we can do about it. If it'll make you feel better, though, feel free to ring us up every month and we ll tell you down the phone
which words we really wanted to say every time we actually used "crap". Okay?
As a new way of faking his anger out on something, instead of his former way of venting his anger on himself. I truly believe that if the power cut hadn't taken place, he would still be alive today So. To conclude. I certainly believe that computer games are a good, entertaining way of recovenng from mental illness, and that parents should be encouraged to support their children's gameplaymg enjoyment.
Yours. Dr S Buscemi, Croydon Yeah What he said.
'A FREE POSTER OF WINONA RYDER' Dear AMIGA POWER, I don't like coverdisks. How about a free poster of Winona Ryder instead7 Yours. Dave, Herts We're trying, Dave. Nnnnggghhh.
IWM 27 July '93 'PROFESSOR OF OBSTETRICS' Did you know that the Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Kings College Hospital. London is called Stuart Campbell?
Simon de Rivaz. Cheltenham No, but it you hum it, we ll - no. That's not right.
Ismm 23 Aim '93 'OTHER PEOPLE MAY HAVE CONSIDERED COINCIDENCES' I've worked it out -1 know the solution to life, the universe and everything1 Or. To be more specific. I know what's happening to the AP team. Every time I open up the new issue of AP, I turn to 'Just Who Do We Think We Are?' To be greeted by a myriad of new faces. What’s happening to the AP team? Just when I get used to one reviewer's style, they're off. Where are they all going7 I refuse to believe that they all moved to different magazines. No.
[DRAMATIC PAUSE] I know what's happening to them - I've connected a number of things which other people may have considered coincidences to arrive at the obvious conclusion. Firstly, who is the only member of the team (apart from good old Jonathan Davies, who doesn't count) that has been with the mag since the beginning? Secondly why does said person nearly always appear in dark glasses with a fan hiding his face? Why is this person apparently so good at games?
Yes. Stuart Campbell is a VAMPIRE! He's devoured the old AP team members - look out Cam, Steve etc! I reckon the only reason JD hasn't been noshed is because he doesn't taste very nice.
I will not obey authority1 The Scarlet Helmet. Derbyshire Oh God. It's going to be one ot those days, isn’t it? - Stu.
Issw* 29 Sop '93 'THROBBING LOVE GUSSETS' Congratulations on the new addition to the Power Family - The Secret Garden.
(Which is what our Reader Ads page is called, tor no very good reason we can currently remember. - Ed) Particular congrats are due for the decision not to include a lonely hearts column. It's a well- known fact that computers are of far more interest to males than females, although it still baffles me why. A lonely hearts column only serves to raise the hopes of those sad. Sad individuals who have neither the right nor the confidence to walk upon this grey and unpleasant land Do these people not realise that my stomach is strongly offended with every mention of throbbing love gussets that seem
packed into the classified pages of every publication? Anyway, you haven't included such a section, so I'll get off my soapbox and on to the point of my letter.
What ever happened to the great articles that first enticed me to buy POWER back in those Matt Bielby golden days? You should make a lot more of the good ideas you have - for example, the Right Profile in the July issue. Great! I'd like to hear about the views Jon Hare has with regard to the software industry, or even his views on nothing in particular, but lay it on thick! The same applies for beefing up Diary Of A Game - you could drop the coverdisk, as far as I'm concerned, but give me something substantial to read.
SOCIOLOGY DEGREE winner beating. Yet there was none of the violence which is so common in today's schools.
All we hear from today’s youngsters is that there's nothing to do. Put them to work, that's what I say. I fought in the war for today's youth: well, the Cold War anyway.
Once I had a snowball fight with a Russian exchange student -1 would've won if he hadn't hidden behind a wall.
The reason I'm telling you all this is to introduce a new argument into the causes of violence' debate.
Computer games, television and films are not to blame - it's the idiot politicians who keep prattling on about Victorian values’. Every night some politician is on the news wittering on about subjects they know nothing about. Your reaction? "I'd love to smack his face in," and there we have it - violent thought. There is a direct correlation between the increase in viewing time given to politicians and the increase in violence.
Ian Ritch, Dundee, Aged 24, single, unemployed, hacked off, and making a vain attempt to double the AP mailbag PS: You still owe me a prize from several months ago. It’s not fair, but that's life. Speaking of which, I have a turnip whose shape you wouldn't believe.
Ian - It s in the post, okay? Just leave us alone, please.
'A SEVERE BEATING' The other day I was on a bus when I heard two young boys arguing about which computer mag is best. One thought AP was good, while the other thought Amiga Format superior. The discussion soon became heated and a fight broke out. It was a close contest, but the lad supporting AP was definitely ahead on points when I intervened.
"Boys," I said, "what do you think you’re doing?
When I was a lad there weren't any computer mags, no computers, no TV, and if you wanted music you had to sing. You just don't know how lucky you are."
I think this kind of violence is indicative of today's society. In years past, if you had a fight then the local bobby would skelp you about the head. You thought twice about fighting again, I can tell you. At school, lateness, disrespect and speaking out of turn all resulted in a severe I remember in my infancy as a gamesplayer picking up Your Sinclair. It always had something worth reading, even if the feature had bugger all to do do with computer games. One month I saw an article about the magazine staff having a paintball match with a local police team, just when paintball was new to the
country
- come to think of it, I think your very own Jonathan Davies was
involved Regular readers know who you are, I think you could do
articles about what you get up to as a team.
PSYCHIATRIC HELP winner I'm probably in the minority with my views, and I understand you have to cater for the larger part of your market, but I hope you'll consider these views in future months. I'll continue to buy POWER because it offers an unnvalled reviews, tips and previews service better than anyone else in the whole world. It's still the best mag in the world of computerdom.
Thanks for letting me sound off!
Yours faithfully, Phil Helme, Bolton You 've kind ot answered your own question al the end there. Phil. I used to love those ridiculous old YS articles too, but from the rest ot the mail we get it seems as it most readers think we’re quite sell-indulgent enough already, thanks. I think maybe those happy, innocent, carefree days are gone forever.
'IN ADDITION TO SOME OTHER PEOPLE'S' I am 25 and have all my own, in addition to some other people's, teeth.
Randolph X, Edinburgh 'HUGELY EROTIC' Re: Cute Games.
Please tell me which institute you let your Staff Writer Cam Winstanley out of. And don't you think the authorities will find out where he is after his recent articles in your magazine?
I find both articles biased and twisted
- it's painfully obvious that Mark only likes one type of game
and is Inin 30 Oct '93 'A LARGER-THAN- LIFE PSYCHOPATH' I’d
just like to congratulate Mr Cam Winstanley, author of that
brilliantly over- the-top review of Walker. Every mag needs a
larger-than-life psychopath and he fits the bill perfectly,
giving your already excellent mag an edge over competitors.
Geoff Noonan, Rudgewick Cheers Geoff I expect you're pretty ‘on the edge yourself. - Cam Iimm 31 Nov '93 'VERY BORING- LOOKING LADIES' To Ye Olde AMIGA POWER.
One morning, as I was leafing through the pages of The Bristol Evening Post, I happened to find the nominees for the 'Miss Bristol' competition. Amongst the other very boring-looking ladies, I saw a name that jumped out and thought "Oooh, that sounds familiar." I sat and thought for a while and remembered where I'd heard it, rushed upstairs to get my AMIGA POWER and found that it was Lisa Keliett1 I phoned up to vote for her right away, and I think she should win, so just unwilling to give CLP any other type of genre a chance. It's mM like giving a film IS | reviewer who loves horror films
Sommersby to write about.
Another thing that I did find strange and rather annoying was the fact that I found Mark Winstanley in a bunny rabbit suit hugely erotic.
Please advise me.
Yours forever, James L Carter, Crawley PS Any chance of Linda in the bunny suit?
Dial nght now. You'll have to hurry because the lines close at 12 today.
(That’s that sketch knackered then. Ed). Why not, if she wins, do a centrefold of our lovely Lisa?
Love, Duane Dibbly, Clevedon Sorry - it's another Lisa Keliett letter. We did warn you. But now you really do have to buy the magazine in order to find out what she really looks like. Don 't you?
Iimm 32 D*« '93 'I GET A @ BY PRESSING SHIFT AND 2' I have had my computer for about six months and am having a few problems. I had an Atari 1040 for about two years previously, but when I heard about the new Falcon not being compatible and the ST being discontinued, I bought an A1200 with a 64 Meg hard drive.
I print from a Canon BJ10 Ex which served me well on the ST. I have Pen Pal installed on my hard dnve which I use to do my assignment for University.
The problems I have are: 1 When I print, it takes about 5 minutes for a single page of text. It seems fine on Dpamt but is far too slow on Pen Pal. I bought a new printer driver from PD but that doesn't help. How can I get my printer to print at the speeds I know it can?
2. The keymap is set on American, meaning I get a @ from pressing
SHIFT and 2 instead of the desired ". How do I change the
keymap to UK?
3. 1 used to sample sequence music on my ST. Exactly what
equipment and which is the best value for money, would I need
for the A1200 to be able to sample and sequence7 I have a MIDI
keyboard.
Yours, Rodger Wyber, Bickleigh Although AMIGA POWER quite clearly presents itself as a dedicated Amiga games mag, some folk still persist in asking us technical questions. We decided to let Stuart answer these ones:
1. Are you deliberately trying to annoy us. Rodger, or are you
just the stupidest person ever to walk the face of the planet,
ever7
2. Try ramming a fork into your eyeball, that might do the tnck
3. You're at University. Rodger, surely you must have at least
some kind of vague inkling of what the phrase dedicated games
mag' means7 Surely?

Tech boys Nick Veitch and Richard Baguley explore the idea of upgrading an existing 'obsolete' machine.
Build your own MAKE NO MISTAKE, h, A4000 is .in exiHlrni machine. You might well wish to buy one - bill could sou build your own cheaper?
We're not suggesting that you go out and buy a soldering iron and send oil a large order Ibr electrical components to Maplin. But could you construct a machine of similar performance from third party expansions that are readily available?
Could vou upgrade your present machine to A4II0II performance, without having to actually bin a real A1000?
To start with, vou will need some form of Amiga, and unfortunatelv nohodv but Commodore seems to make them.
So which of the range would you start with? I'he A5II0 is a good solid workhorse, but lacks the expansion capability that we would need for this project. The A'JOOO would be a better choice, but vou can get a even better bargain with the AI5II0.
For £399 Silica will sell vou a 15(1(1 with a load of software and a PC Bridgeboard thrown in. Second-hand vou can easily pick up an A 15(H) with some form of hard drive for about £450. Check through local papers, the small ads and classifieds in .1 Shaft m.
The A1500 has plenty of room for expansion. Il boasts a total ol seven slots for PC and Amiga expansions, plus a CPC slot for accelerator cards and a video slot to plug custom video cards in.
You've got the basis now. But vott'll need to expand quite heavilv to get any- where near the specifications of the A4000.
HITTING THE TARGET - WHY YOU REALLY NEED RETARGETABLE GRAPHICS Retargetable graphics (RTG) has been one of the most talked about but least understood aspects of the Amiga. Commodore have promised support for it in future versions of Workbench, and several graphics card manufacturers already have models which boast RTG features.
RTG has been present on the Apple Mac for years, so you can run programs Like Photoshop on anything from a black-and-white to a 16-mil- lion-colour Macintosh. So what does it all mean?
The basic idea behind it is to make programs independent of the graphics cards they run on. So you would be able to run any 24-bit paint program on any 24-bit graphics card.
The program doesn't talk directly to the card, but accesses the card through the operating system. Every different graphics card has a special library which tells the operating system how to write to the card. This means that as far as the program is concerned, all graphics cards look the same. All the work of actually producing the screen is done by the operating system.
This all sounds very well, but what's needed is a standard, so both the manufacturers of graphics cards and programmers can start producing hardware and software that complies with it. Commodore have promised a standard, but it's not yet appeared.
Several manufacturers have RTG features on their graphics cards (such as the Picasso II and Retina), but the only standard which covers several cards is the EGS (Enhanced Graphics System), pioneered by manufacturers GVP.
All manufacturers have indicated their willingness to comply with the official Commodore standard once it's defined, so let's hope that The Retina and Picasso cards are very good alternatives for the Commodore get a move on and help make the non-AGA set. A 256 colour Workbench can still be yours. Amiga a more professional video machine.
WITH A MASK AND A SWORD, IT'S THE SWASHBUCKLING ZORRO SLOT... Zorro slots are so flexible, almost any sort of device can be added to the Amiga, from broadcast quality video cards to sound samplers.
The A3000 and A4000 series machines have a Zorro III slot which is even more powerful. It uses a multiplexed Address Data Bus to virtually double the rate of information transfer. This would be very useful if anyone ever produced a Zorro III compliant board, but very few such boards have actually appeared so far.
The Zorro slot can house a multitude of add-ons, ranging from hard drives to 16-bit samplers, SCSI interfaces and virtually every device known to man.
(such as the Palette requestor).
The upshot of this abilitv to display application screens, is that vou can happily run many applications. Including Workbench itself, through the Retina.
While the programs may not be able to lake advantage of the extra colour resolution, some ol them can take advantage of the greatly increased pixel resolution.
The Retina can display screens at up to 1440 by 566 pixels in a non-interlaced screen mode. Many applications, such its Directory Ofrus, Professional Pape. Ihrfesiional Draw and Alaxifrlnn T can make use of this THE EASY A3000 OPTION Another thing to consider is the A3000. Yes, it is a little out of date, yes, it does only come with Workbench 2, yes, you do have to boot Kickstart from disk.
On the plus side of things, you can pick up an A3000 for around £700 - a lot less, in fact if you pick it up second-hand.
It comes with a 25MHz 68030 - a full version with an MMU, an FPU and a SCSI interface. It also features four Zorro III slots, which means that the latest range of Amiga peripherals can be plugged in and used (when someone finally works out what the Zorro III standard actually is).
Slap in a Retina or Picasso board and you're away. Total cost just over £1,000. The stock A3000 wil outperform the A4000 030 without too much trouble, as Richard Baguley keeps pointing out to anyone who will listen.
Enhanced pixel resolution.
Speed is the second thing you have to worry aboul. A graphics card will help out here, because it uses its own graphics memory which is incredible fast, hut obviously von will need a new processor card to match the power of the A4000.
The 4000 030 runs olT a 68EOOSO clocked at 25MHz, so obviously you are going to need something better than that to impress your mates.
There are quite a few accelerator cards available for the Amiga, but probably the fastest and best in terms of compatibility is the G-Force accelerator from G T.
This comes in many versions, but dump spec model includes a full 68040 chip running at Ti.Mll . The card also includes an extra serial and parallel port and a SCSI interface. 82-bit wide memory can be added to the board up to a total of 64Mb, using CAT’s own !6.Mb SIMM modules.
Also still available, although no longer in production, is the Zeus 040 card from Progressive Peripherals. This card is very- similar to the (AT one. But is slightly faster according to our tests (Ah'49).
In order to be faster than the 4000 080 all you really need is an accelerator which has a 08080 clocked at more than 25MII . If you got the 40.MII '080 version of the (1-Force card, you would only have to shell out £699 - not bad really, as this gives you a RAM platform and a SCSI interface its well as a fully functioning 68080 chip, clocked at nearly twice the speed of the one in the A4000 0.80. An FIT’, incidentally, is a maths coprocessor which works in tandem with all processors from the 68020 up. And dtamat- icallv reduces the time taken to perform inanv mathematical calculations.
Those AGA chips are all the rage in 1998 and are probably the lirst thing to worry about. The A4000. In case you're not aware, uses the completely updated AGA (Advanced Graphics Array) chip set which has a number of extra graphics modes.
The most important of these is HAMS mode, which enables suitable equipped machines to display hi-res images in up to 264,144 colours. Not bad. Really. The 256- colour mode is more useful on an everyday basis, though, because it doesn't use up any valuable processor time.
There are no way that you can upgrade an older machine to the AGA chip set. It isn't just a matter ol popping in a few new chips or anything like that. The AGA chip set involves a complete new architecture which affects the wav the entire motherboard of the computer is laid out.
Bill if the major difference is just a few graphics modes, why bother?
There is a number of very cheap display cards available for the Amiga. These don't bother with HAM8 and all that cunning kludge business - instead they go straight for 24-bit. Which gives you a total of 16.8 million colours to play with.
One tempting choice of 21-hit card is probably the MacroSystem's Retina, which is the original, useful, inexpensive 24-bit graphics card. The Retina is much more than just a display device, though. As well as performing framebuffer tasks, such as displaying static images, the Retina can also handle animations.
Probably more important is the abilitv of the Retina card to display normal Amiga application screens. This is done by using an emulation program and a software library to redirect Workbench.
It is a form of retargetable graphics (see panel below left), in that the software fools the applications into opening windows on the Retina display rather than the usual RGB Out at the back of the Amiga.
This feature works without the cooperation of the particular application in question, so it is quite cunning. However, it is not always entirely successful.
Retina does not support screen dragging, so you can't look at two tasks simultaneously. It therefore has problems with programs such as Deluxe Paint, which open tool bars and requesters using overlay screens on top of the main screen The Zorro slot on the A1500 is. Indeed, a fox so cunning and brave. In fact they all are. There is a total of four full Zorro slots in the A1500, and three PC slots.
The PC slots are useful if you have a PC Bridgeboard, because you can install PC cards such as an AdLib sound card or whatever. In fact they are still useful even if you don't have a Bridgeboard - expansion cards for the Amiga only use the slot as a power source, and these will worti just as happily in the PC slots.
The Zorro slots themselves combine a power supply and an Address Data Bus so the card can communicate directly with the CPU. Because over our Frankenstein machine. Even the meanest of distributors is supplying the 4000 with I Mb of Chip RAM and 1Mb of Fast RAM on board.
Matching the Fast RAM capability isn't really a problem. It is usually solved at least in part by your accelerator card. Most accelerators, including the G-Force which we picked out previously as a good bet.
Have slots for 32-bit wide Fast RAM.
The RAM is usually installed as either a ZIP or SIMM package, readily available if you search through the small ads of A!-'.
32-bit RAM gets over the Autoconfigure memory limit (9Mb with Kickstart version
2) . 32-bit RAM can be mapped “over the top" and be directly
accessed by the processor 011 the card.
In practise, this 32-bit RAM is faster than the 32-bit RAM on the A4000, because it can be accessed in such a direct fashion without fiddling around with all the messy Bus protocol that slows down memory operations on the A4000.
This doesn't solve the other problem, though. In non-.AGA machines, the maximum amount of Chip RAM which can be used by the system is 1Mb. This is normally enough for most people, but if you use applications which make extensive use of custom chips, it may be a bit restricting.
The sort of thing affected is samplers, graphics programs such as Dl’ainl and anything which uses HAM. This software relies heavily on the custom chips, and since the custom chips rely on Chip RAM, you may find yourself short. Chip RAM may also be required by other devices which make use s4*tiqti 1500: Silica or 4 iatd. £399 Retina: ?4*aya &eM ie Scotland 059 657 553 £345 (rm) -"poocc : Silica Stfjlemo 051 309 rut £699 - 1299 9He acAip.2: 'Poatm Somputiny 0234 543355 £159 " 05: Silica S fi(C4M 05i 309 nn £799 (427Xt) 9C£ “PfD “Diiuc: 7 o vei (ZaMtfutfiHj 0234 543355 £79.95 tyuutd *7otal AND
HERE'S ONE WE MADE EARLIER it is all very well saying how easy it is to upgrade your machine, but are we just saying that, or did we really get our own hands dirty?
Well, actually we borrowed a sad and defunct A1500 from Amiga Shopper (which has a great collection of sad and defunct things) and soon had it filled up with lots of exciting extras to make it the most powerful machine in the office (if you don't count Sue’s brain).
Here is how it all came together... Iwhat a lot of kit we've got! Now all we have to do is find some cunning way to shoehorn it all inside that horrible, knackered old A1500 box.
5 Not a saucerful of secrets, but a 1500 full of Zorro cards. The cards you need to add are really up to you, but a hard drive should be high on the list.
6 Remove the Agnus (preferably with the correct tool) and note the orientation. Then slip in the Megachip2 board, pushing home firmly.
7 Attach the crocodile leads very carefully. They must be attached to the correct pins and they must not short out the legs of the Gary chip.
Of the custom chips.
The answer to this problem is the Power Computing Megachip2. This is a small board, complete with a 2Mb Agnus and four Zip packages, which simply plugs into your existing Agnus socket. The only problem with this is that as your original Agnus is still in the socket you will have to remove it.
When the board is in place there are four crocodile cables to connect to your Gary chip, and then you arc set. Make sure you get the right connections otherwise you could do some damage. You will know if you got it wrong, because the .Amiga will probably just display a red screen at boot up. Probably the most important thing is to get the chip the right way round.
High Density disks, if you want to gel really fussy, are probably next up. Doubling the storage capacity of each floppy you use.
Commodore plan to do an official HD upgrade for the A1200. But there are no plans for the older machines: which is a bit of a shame, because after Kickstart 2 they ADVANTAGES Faster than stock A4000 • Better colour resolution • Compatible with existing software • Better performance price ratio • FINAL SPECIFICATION Graphics - 24-bit (16.8 million colours) Processor - 68040 O 33 Mhz (20+ MIPS) Chip RAM - 2Mb Drives: SCSI and High Density floppy are all capable of running HD drives.
Fortunately. Power Computing have now released an internal version of their much celebrated XL drive. This mechanism comes in two versions, one for the A500 A1500 and one for the A600 A1200.
Both versions use a high-quality Sony mechanism which actually transfers at speeds slightly faster than the A4000's internal drive.
The drive can also be used by CrossDos to access high-density PC disks, just like the A4000. The final formatted capacity of your disks under AmigaDOS will be up to
1. 8Mb (depending on which filesystem you choose). PC formatted
disks will be the standard PC capacity. 1.44 Mb.
On the hard drive side of things, the A4000 comes complete with an IDE interface and mechanism. This is a great bone of contention between enthusiasts and Commodore, because although the drives DISADVANTAGES
• Non-AGA software compatible
• Custom chip operations are slower than the 4000
• Zorro II standard only arc cheap, they are not as fast as a
SCSI mechanism. This is an excellent opportunity to go one up
on the A4000 owners by getting a SCSI card, or even a SCSI 2
card which is faster still.
SCSI 2 can give transfer rates of around 5.5 Mb second. This interface is included with die O-Force accelerator, or it can lie obtained separately in the shape of something like an HCS card or Trifecia.
What, in the end. Do we make of it all?
Looking at the prices, it becomes apparent that, depending on the kind of deal you get when getting hold of some of the older stuff (the prices of a lot of the older GVP equipment have been falling for some time) it would probably be slightly more expensive to upgrade your A1500 to the top specifications. However, these specifications are far in excess of the A4000.
If you already have an A1500 or A2000.
Then it would probably be more prudent to upgrade than try to finance a completely new machine. Remember that you don't need an '040 accelerator to beat the A4000 030.
I( you compare the price for an A4000 040 (£1.790) against an upgraded AI500 (around £1.599) you'll see that it is possible to create a faster machine for less money. Be aware also that these prices are simply guidelines. If you shop around, go to shows or keep an eye on the local papers, you will probably be able to pick up most of this equipment, particularly the accelerator cards, for much less than the prices quoted here.
THE PROS AND CONS It is also something which can be more oasilv achieved in stages: starting, say. With the A1500 and a SCSI drive, getting a display card, then the accelerator and finally the Chip RAM expansion - you won't find that you can't run anything without it. It just makes life a lot easier.
Adding things in stages not only keeps the outlay down, but also means that you only buy the things you actually need. You may find that after adding a graphics card and a hard drive, you don't really need anything else to achieve your purpose.
Ultimately, the changing pace of software development will leave your machine not exactly redundant, but certainly disadvantaged in the years to come. On the other hand. Commodore are committed to producing a RISC-based super-machine, probably very late next year or early '95.
It may be worth the wait, but in the meantime an upgraded A1500 may be a 2Wi'n taken the lid off it now. Both literally and metaphorically. Look at all that dust! Never mind, though If II soon be even better than new.
3 Removing the drive and power assembly is just a matter of undoing all the screws at the back and lifting it up. There is only a slot holding it at the front.
4 Fitting a Zorro card is aasy. Just rtmovs the blanking plate and slot It In. Press firmly on the card to make sure it fits properly In the connector.
8 To fit the XL drive you will need to disassemble the drive and power subassembly. Detach the spacers from under the old drive and add them to the XL.
9 The XL drive at home. It may be a little whiter than the standard ones, but otherwise it looks just the same. Now 1.6 Mb disks are at your command.

• Could this new hardware and software combination really be
the solution to all that searching through videos for the right
bit?
Nick Veitch sits in the director's chair... IF YOU'RE ONE of those people who have a lot of video tapes, you're probably also one of those people who have a lot of things on several different tapes which you know would be just that bit more wonderful if they were all on one tape, all edited together nicely.
You can. Of course, if you really enjoy doing things the hard way, manually edit everything together - lining up the tapes, pressing the right buttons at the right time and all that nonsense.
You run do it. And if you have a lot of tapes, you probably even havr done it - just the once. It is a tedious task and one which, in this age of enlightenment and computer automation, should be done for you by some technical wizardry. And. Of course, it can be.
EDIT MAT However, video recorders being rather strange things, and video tape editing in particular being a highly specialised occupation. Such a piece of technical wizardry has never quite been created lo everyone's satisfaction. Various combinations of hardware and software have been tried and some have worked pretty well, considering that it's a difficult job. But mass consumer appeal, cither among video enthusiasts or with Amiga fans, remains elusive.
So it is that from time to time some bright spark thinks he's cracked it and a new solution appears. One solution is the Edit Mate system from Camljnk, a system converted from the PC package of the same name, and that remains essentially the same, except for the software.
The system consists of rabies to link your Amiga to your video decks, a 'wand' for controlling infra-red video recorders, and a sound mixer.
There are two versions of the software, one of which is designed, according to the manufacturers, for a 'normal' Amiga (we can only assume they mean an older 68000-based machine; an A500 or A600) and one curiously labelled Edit Mate A1200 which, turns out to be an optimised version suitable for any Amiga which uses a 68020 or better processor.
TIMECODING You must have seen those rough cut music videos they are forever showing on TV that display timings in the top left comer of the picture. These numbers are actually timecodes, and are very useful for deciding the edit points in a clip.
What happens is that the original tape is duplicated, with the numbers overlaid on to the image. This tape can then be viewed to make edit decisions and the timecode data noted. The timecodes should match up exactly (or near enough so as to make little difference) with the original tape, so all you have to do is take a note of the numbers and type them straight into your Edit Decision List.
This is all very well, but how do you get the timecode numbers on the tape in the first place? Well, all you need is Edit Mate and a genlock. The package includes a program which will generate numbers for you at the right speed.
Then it is Just a simple matter of duplicating the tape with the Edit Mate-generated numbers genlocked over the top.
The installer program supplied with the software is not exactly a prime example of state-of-the-art coding. For a start it assumes that if you have a hard disk then Workbench is installed on a 'DUO:' partition. This wouldn’t be so bad were it not for the fact that since about two years ago the first hard drive on an Amiga system has been called HDO: as default. Strange.
Needless to say. The installer is a custom script and not one that uses the Commodore Installer program.
Once the software is actually running all you have to do is set up the edits.
Clicking on an edit number will switch the software into edit mode.. Front here you can control the video player with the These wands are becoming quite commonplace now. Their first use on the Amiga was with Edit Mate's rival. Gold Disk's Video Director, but they were also used with the IFR system on MacroSystems’ V-Lab video digitiser.
Comments can be added to the clips, and if you are feeling confident you can even edit the liming points as well.
Edits can be entered manually, which can save a lot of time if your video decks arc not too hot at rewinding. Used in con-

nonsense. You can, and if you have a lot of tapes, you probably
Have - once, it is a tedious task.* VERDICT junction with the
timecode feature, you could enter all the edits manually if you
wanted. In fact, from the main control screen you could set up
and perform all the edits yourself, without using the EDI.
At all. This may not sound too sensible, but ii is still a lot easier than pressing all the buttons yourself, believe me.
On the whole the system works well, allhough perhaps a bit more time could have been spent developing the software for ihe Amiga version. The sound mixer is a very useful addilion to the set-up, although it was probably a little unwise 10 include ii in this pack. Such devices are widely available in photographic video shops and people heavily involved in video will almost certainly already have one. The audio mixer must lie controlled manually, which tather detracts from the automatic ideal of the whole thing. All in all this is not a had effort, though. O
* * A nice effort, but there is still room in the market for a
reasonably priced editing system which can control VCRs and
also insert Amiga graphics into the live footage.
However, Edit Mate is a useful stopgap. ** 72% REQUIRED EQUIPMENT To use Edit Mate you will need at least one tape device capable of playback which supports either the Sony or Panasonic remote editing protocols.
If your video set up doesn't feature at least one machine that supports either of these protocols, you can forget about Edit Mate.
Almost every Sony and Panasonic model made In the last two years supports these standards, but it is worth checking.
The Sony equipment should have a 3.5mm jack socket marked LANC (which apparently stands for L Ancillary Control) and the Panasonic machine will have a strange 5-pin DIN-type socket usually marked ‘‘Remote".
It is worth remembering that only the play unit need support one of these protocols, as long as the record unit can be controlled by an infra-red device. If you are using a camera with playback capability and a VCR as your tape units, the camera must support one of these protocols.
Mouse to gel to the start of the clip you want to record.
Next step is to mark this position and once again use the mouse to get to the edit out point. You have now successfully completed your first edit. It's certainly not going to cause any great mental strain to anyone with an IQ higher than that of the average monocellular lifeform. Simple and easy-to-use is the order of the day.
You can repeat this process as many times as you like. The edit points will be stored in memory. Once you have all the edits you want all lined up and ready to go, you can then progress to compile an Edit Decision List, or EDL. This is the rough equivalent of a music sequencer, but instead of music it plat’s video clips.
The Edit Mate comes complete with an infra-red wand which can control any infra-red deck. The wand unit plugs into the controller system, which is connected to the parallel port.
There is nothing inherently magic about it actually, it is just a combined infra-red receiver and transmitter. With the software provided, the wand receives and analyses signals from the VCR’s remote control unit. These are then stored and can be played back through the transmitter to control the deck.

be displayed on a variety of different kinds of graph.
Of your data can be assigned to an icon on the program desktop, so you can access it by just clicking on it.
There are also some extras, including an option to determine your net worth, keep track of any shares or bonds and perform a "What if r” calculation. You can also set the program to automatically save the data at specific intervals. If the facts and figures are loo depressing, you can always have a quick go at the sliding block puzzle which seems to pop up in all of Digila's products. This even gives you the choice of lour dilferenl designs for the blocks.
Money Mutters is a very flexible program. And it's also very fast. It certainly slows down when you're dealing with a complex set-up. But ibis is only to be expected. It gives you plenty of control over structuring your data, and the possibility of comparing two dilferenl budgets could be extremely useful for determining exactly where your predictions departed from reality. O VERDICT
* * This home accounts package is easy to use, powerful and
quick.
If you need to get a grasp of your financial fortunes, it's an excellent program for dealing with the various facts and figures in a quick and efficient way. 99 McMtt cMrw cwt Hw* Nanber fccogat Co* BalMCt UwttM linit Hii Horn* Linit Im 1 m Title RflffMKf Nwbff B 85% Money MATTERS 3 When it comes to cash, keeping a check on where it's all going is not always easy.
Richard Baguley finds out if this budgeting program is worth its weight... SOME PEOPLE'S IDEA r budgeting is two streetwise dudes silting on a sola in the high street, with one saying "I love money" and the other saying “I hate money". Suffice to say that this sort of attitude is hardly likely to make you the bank's favourite customer. What banks like to see is people in control of their finances, with a good idea of where all die money goes.
The obvious question that springs to mind is what happened to versions 1 and
2. But this is actually version 3 of Home Accounts. Much of the
functionality of the program is the same, but Digita have
added some new features, speeded up the program and added AGA
support.
The basic idea of the program is simple. You enter a series of figures which describe your financial behaviour, such as bow much you spend on rent. Food, and so on. File program takes this data and provides a projection of your financial situation, which can be presented either as a table or a graph. When you actually spend the money, you enter this data, and the program provides an analysis of how far from the truth your estimates are.
The program is certainly easy to use.
There’s an excellent manual and an equally good on-line help facility which means it's easy to find any information you need quickly. Entering great wodges of figures and setting up the account details is a bit tiresome, but that's hardly the program’s fault. It allows you to define as many different types of transactions (such as cash withdrawals, petrol,¦¦‘food) as you like, pending enough memory and disk space. New accounts or transaction types can be added later if needed, so von don't need to worn about getting it completed right first time. Each of the variotiSiAspet ls J |J J M £ A

I -388.881 I 4 DiPrtit (art I jut.Wtti' | A CZZ3 m tefTTfSge Hi IzmI J v| J 4 A A If a picture tells a thousand words, an animation does it at 25 frames a second. Nick veitch gets up to speed with Terranova’s latest utility.
Retina animations can be displayed in any of fhe different colour resolutions. Playback from hard disk is possible, but it is slow unless you have a very fast SCSI mechanism.
Magic LANTERN THE ABILITY TO displav static images is all very well. They look particularly nice in the new AGA modes too. But in the real world, tilings aren't static. They move. Magic l.antcrn attempts to bridge* the gap with reality by enabling the user to combine static IKK images into an animation file, which can then be placed hack on the Amiga.
Thousands of you are probably wondering why I am bothering to go on. Yes, of course you could just load the images into Dpainl, string them together in Anim 5 format and replay them. But Magic Ijmtmt has a few tricks of its own.
Possibly the most important of these is tite choice oi animation compression modes. You can select the type of compression used to store the initial frame - normally a form of Run Length Compression (RI.G). This is the same way in which Dpainl would store an animation, but Magic Lantern gives you a choice of different RLC modes.
It is also possible to select delta preferences for the rest of the anint. Animations are often stored as delta files, where only the differences between successive frames arc stored. These can then Ire compressed and tlit- result is an animation which is not necessarily the si e of ail the initial images combined. This compression can he optimised for playback speed or for si e.
The potential use of this software is further extended by its support for 24-bit enhanced graphics cards. The Retina card is supported in S. 16 and 24-bit modes - which just about covers any replay options you may have. Also covered is the rather obscure GDA card.
The control of tire Retina also allows you to select which screen mode the Retina will use. Out of the dozens of different resolutions it can handle for all the different colour modes.
Magic Lantern is supported by two player utilities. The first is a play from RAM utility. There is no real difference between this and playing the DIFF files from within the editing software except, of course, that the memory overhead is less if you are disadvantaged in that area.
The other is a play from hard disk routine. Obviously this is a less than ideal solution, but if you have a huge animation there is no other option. The replay speed is reasonable. If you are the lucky owner of a SCSI 2 interface with a really fast mechanism attached, you will probably not notice the difference. But on a normal hard drive, things are less titan perfect.
You should he able to manage about 10 frames per second, but if you have saved the animation at a higher frame rate, vou will encounter some tedious difficulties. The plav routine will attempt to match the selected speed and fail. That isn't a problem. The problem is that it doesn't fail regularly. If the entire anim was slowed by the same amount it wouldn't be that noticeable, but varying display speeds will produce a jerky result and completely ruin any cunning timing you have embedded into the anim structure.
Still, this is a very useful piece of software. It is a lot more effective than the Mokrracr animation system supplied with the Retina, and a lot easier to understand.
If you have a Retina, this software is heartily recommended, but for other users, you may as well stick to Dpainl. D VERDICT
* * In spite of its many options, this software is limited in
application because it is directed mainly at users of a few
24-bit cards. It is really only worth buying if you have a
Retina or CDA card - then it is an excellent purchase.** 76%

* LF SIGNATURE: CAMBS PE17 4LF he One-Stop MUSIC SHOP THE AMIGA
HAS long been crying out for 16-bit sound capability. At its
launch. 8-bit sound with sampling was unheard of in home
computers. .And in the last couple of years pressure has been
put on Commodore to introduce 16-bit sound as standard on
Amigas. To keep them one step ahead of the competition.
Even with the new AGA machines Gommodore have remained with the proven 8-bit engine, so it's up to third-party manufacturers to come up widi the goods.
Based around E-Mu Systems' Proteus I MIDI sound module. Blue Ribbon’s One- Stop Music Shop promises to Ire the Messiah for the Amiga faithful. Certainly, it's got the technical spec to make it a winner - 4Mb of 16-bit sampled sounds in ROM. MIDI compatibility, link for MIDI sequencers and a built-in MIDI interface.
The 4Mb of ROM on tilt- One-Stop card contains over 210 sampled sounds and waveforms, from which you build up and synthesise your own sounds. When you first load up the Onr-Slop Editor, the sounds are arranged into 128 different presets, and 64 drum maps - effectively 64 separate drum kits.
One-Stop is obviously aimed at the novice synthesist, because the layout of the editor is simple and intuitive. It lay's all the elements of each sound out as a simple schematic diagram, with boxes representing operators such as LFOs and modulators, and arrows linking them all together. Of course, many recent synths use similar graphics, but One-Stop has the advantage of a full Amiga screen to display everything clearly.
Each sound can be made from up to two separate samples, arranged as Primary and Secondary instruments, chosen from the list of 210. When you play this sound, both instruments will be heard simultaneously, the volume of each depending on the position of a slider called a Cross Fader. For example; if you want to create a harsh bass sound, you might select a Slap Bass preset as your Primary Instrument. To make it more punchy you could select a tight Kick Drum sound as your Secondary, and make it. Say. Hall the volume of the Primary. When played, the Kick Drum and Slap Bass will be played
simultaneously, hopefully treating the sound you require.
It 'catapults you into the world of professional, CD-quality stereo audio.'
At least, that’s what Blue Ribbon would have you believe. Andy Nuttall finds out what The One-Stop's really got to offer.
.As you might expect, there are plenty of functions provided to alter your sound.
A separate ADSR function for each instrument enables you to alter the Attack.
Decay. Sustain and Release components of your sounds: while three modulation sources control how the sound is played.
Two LFOs (Low-Frequency Oscillators) provide familiar effects such as vibrato and tremolo, while an Auxiliary Envelope function means you can add cross-lade, pitch bend and other effects to your sound.
.Also, if you're controlling One-Stop from an external MIDI kevboard. You can set up each sound to play differently depending on how hard you strike the keyboard. And the position of the pitch and modulation wheels. One-Stop also enables you to control elements of your sound using up to three footswitches. Phew!
When you plug One-Stop into your MIDI setup, you get a fully-functional sound module, with 32-voice multi-timbral- ity. That means you can assign a different sound to each of the 16 MIDI channels supported by One-Stop, and play them all simultaneously - in stereo.
"Alt, but what if I use my Amiga as a MIDI sequencer?" You say. Fortunately that doesn't stop you from using One-Stop's Understandably, Blue Ribbon have made The One-Stop Music Shop compatible with all their music software and hardware. Given that their other products are among the best on the Amiga anyway, this isn't really a problem. On the contrary. It makes Amiga composition a lot simpler to leam and do.
ONE-STOP NEPOTISM On the One-Stop disk are several tools and accessories which can be dragged into the relevant drawers on your Bars & Pipes Professional 2 disk.
Then you can simply use the SoundEngine In and Out tools instead of the MIDI In and Out tools on the main sequencing screen. All MIDI information coming from the SoundEngine tracks is directed to the One-Stop card using System Exclusive (SysEx) data.
Similarly, accessories are provided for connection to Blue Ribbon's Super JAM I auto-composition package (which you'll find on a disk stuck to the front of this very magazine). SuperJAMI composes music for you. Following certain musical guidelines you give it for different styles - Jazz. Soul, Rock, and so on. Instead of using Amiga internal sounds, it plays the One-Stop's 16-bit samples instead - with some amazing results.

These will be familiar to synth veterans, but newcomers may take a short while to understand them - the manual doesn't provide much basic information.
Sounds. If you happen to be using Ban Cs 1’i ies Professional 2, Blue Ribbon's MIDI sequencer (reviewed A 46, FG90%), then using One-Stop sounds alongside MIDI notes is simple (see box below). II you're using another sequencer, then you ran simply connect the MIDI Out from your MIDI interface to the MIDI In port of One- Stop. And bingo! You can play your synthesised sounds. There's a program called IjiopBack on the One-Stop disk which you run before loading your sequencer - this tells One-Stop to expect MIDI information from vour interface.
It seems as though Blue Ribbon have thought of everything. Their programs have always used similar interfaces, and they are designed to be compatible with each other - but One-Stop is possibly their most important package yet.
The sound capabilities answer the prayers of all Amiga musicians: clean, crisp samples, which are easily configurable into the sounds you want; software which is simple to use for the novice, but has enough features for the hardened muso.
Then, a built-in MIDI interface, giving you 16 MIDI channels.
Revert Set Incidentally. Blue Ribbon also manufacture a MIDI interface called Triple Play Plus, which gives you 18 MIDI channels, so combined with One-Slop you get 64 channels - incredibly powerful stuff.
The One-Stop Music Shop brings the Amiga into competition with top professional recording equipment: equalling or improving anything other machines have to offer. With Blue Ribbon promising further Music Shops, including one based on the amazing Kurzweil sampling keyboards, the Amiga's sound actually matches the excellence of Amiga video. All we need now is for Commodore to include it its standard in their next generation of machines. C& P £ 499.95 R Available now SPEED • • • • The patches take 30 seconds to download when you switch one, but after that it’s all speedy.
A bit thin on the page count, but it serves its purpose. Could do with more synthesis theory.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • • Easy to install and get going, highly configurable and compatible with all software tested.
FEATURES • • • • • Selected sounds from all four Proteus sound modules, and software is powerful enough to drive it all.
VALUE • • • • Less than the price of one Proteus module. Doesn’t have all the sounds, but incredible value anyway.
VERDICT

technology, with good software. A combination which Amiga
users have, until now, only dreamed of - and now they're one
step ahead of the competition. " 92% DUST COVER MOUSE HOLDER

Creating stylish titles for you videos can really give them a professional touch.
And a new program from InnoVision is designed to do just that, so Richard Baguley finds out how much of a starring role it can play... Montage 24 PRICE £329.95 RELEASE Out now SPEED • • • Even on a fast machine, it takes a long time to render both the images and the fonts.
Extremely good, with plenty of examples to work through, and all of the technical info on the program.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • It's certainly easy to use, despite its quirks. Support for more graphics cards would have been good.
* * Useful for producing large numbers of 24-bit titles quickly,
but the lack of support for Compugraphic fonts and the way
Montage turns off multitasking make it less of a realistic
option. Perhaps the next version... ** Montage is designed to
do exactly this. Although it's based around creating 24-bit
files, it can also be used on an AGA machine without a graphics
card. But Ire warned: this program requires at least 8Mb of
memory, and when you start creating large titles with complex
animations, you will need more.
Montage only works directly with two 24-bit cards: the QpalVision and the GVP IV-24. If you have either of these, you ran display files directly from within the program, and run most of the various animation effects that come with it. If you have any other 24-bit card (such as the Retina or Piccolo II). You have to save the titles out as 24-bit IFF files and display them using software that comes with the card. Montage also works in HAMS mode on AGA machines, and the quality is nearly as good as 24-bit.
Montage only has eight fonts and it uses a proprietary format which means you can't use the Compugraphic or bitmap fonts which abound in the PI). Given that this program is designed for creating titles eight fonts just aren't enough for serious or IF YOU WANT people 10 actually watch your videos, the first thing to do is to get them interested. This means providing titles that leap out of the screen and beat them around the head. After all, the titles will probably be the first bit of your latest mega epic they see... With plenty of programs such as TvTrxl (AMO Coverdisk). Srala or Adoragr.
The Amiga has never been short of ways of producing titles. You could even use a drawing program like Dl’aint, although this is less flexible than a dedicated program. But there's been one thing missing from all of these programs - the ability to produce 16-million-colour titles using the numerous 24-bit graphics cards available for the Amiga.
One you've created your titles.
Montage can animate them. It's got nowhere near as manv effects as Adorage.
With 13 for AGA users. 20 for OpalVision cards and two for IV24 cards. The playback is vers- smooth, even in super hi-res mode.
There is also one serious bug in this version (V 1.0) of the program. Munlage defaults to certain directories when you try to load a new file. If vou want a file from another director. It brings up a requester which reboots the machine. So. You have to copy all the files you need to the correct directories before starting the program. This brings up another irritating as| ect of the program - Montage turns oil multitasking. Thus you can't run other programs at the same time.
This program occupies a curious middle ground. It has fewer animation elTects than Adoragr (which will soon support AGA modes), but it can work in 16 million colours. You can't do any more with it than you can with Adl'ro. ImagrIX and some Arexx scripts, both of which support Compugraphic fonts. But it's faster to produce titles using Montage, so if speed is ilal to you it may Ire worth the high price. Zj professional use. Additional fonts are available from the programmers, and a program which allows you to use PostScript fonis w ill Ik- available shortly.
Want a quicker Amiga, then adding Fast memory could speed things up, as Richard Baguley explains... PCI 208 ALTHOUGH THE A1200 is by no means a slow machine, there are limes when some people need, or even crave, more speed. II vou are one of these speed-hungtv users, then you could well be interested in the latest RAM expansion offering from Power Computing - the PCI208 which can hold up to 8Mb of memory and an FPL’ running at up to SOMII .
Adding this sort of Fast memory to your A1200 will certainly speed things up. Because the Central Processing Unit and custom chips won't have to light for access to the Chip memory.
All of the memory on the PC 1208 is 32-bit Fast memory, which increases the speed more than twice (by 2.I9 times to be precise).
Whether this will double the speed of your programs is another question. But if a program is written to use Fast memory, it will certainly run faster with this card Fitted.
Lem getting hold of an Floating Point Unit, hut if the FPU is running at a different speed to the CPU, you'll need a crystal, which plugs into the other socket.
The PC 1208 Memory Expansion is a very well-constructed card, with a clean design and at a good price. I would have liked to have seen another SIMM socket, hut this isn't a real problem, because most dealers oiler part exchange deals on SIMMs, so upgrading should not present you with too manv difficulties. RZ ...And Nick veitch gives you the lowdown on GVP's new runner in the A1200 RAM and SCSI expansion stakes.
Not a simple task, and it is also expensive, therefore the development of such components by GVP would implv that they will continue to develop hardware expansions for the A12(H).
The Fast RAM installed on the card will speed up your Amiga on its own, simply because all scu ts of data caches can be set up in areas of memory which are exclusively accessed by the CPU. Campled with the optional 68882 FPU this gives a IF THERE IS one tiling that A1200 owners learn early it is that there is only one trapdoor slot. This means that whatever you decide to add to your AI200. You are stuck with it. There may Ik- wacky American companies working on a trapdoor doubling board, but even if one does appear it will require some inventive expansion through your desk to use more than one
card.
The solution is to get everything on one card, and that is what CLP are attempting to do in the shape ol the SCSI + RAM board. As well as a fairly hefty RAM expansion, it also features a through port of sorts which is actually a SCSI interface.
There are many SCSI devices available. Although the most common use for SCSI is its a hard disk controller.
The port is controlled by a custom VLSI (Very Large Scale integration) chip, designed and produced by GVP. Manufacturing custom chips of this complexity is PC1208 Memory EXPANSION The PC 12(18 takes its memory in a single SIMM slot on the bottom of the card, so if you want to upgrade your card from 2Mb. Or 4Mb. To 8Mb you'll need to replace the existing SIMM. Fortunately there is an easy solution to replacing the existing SIMM because Power ate planning to part-exchange SIMMs, although prices have not yet been fixed. Other companies offer similar schemes.
The card can also hold a maths co-processor (either a PGA or Pl.CC type) so there shouldn’t Ik- any probspeed increase of 2.19 times that of the standard A1200. Not had.
Memory expansion can run up to 32Mb on the card, using GVP's own 16Mb SIMM modules. SIMMs can even Ik* mixed, as long as tile 16Mb one occupies the first slot (and you make sure you have set up the jumpers correctly).
The SCSI + RAM is impressive, hut expensive, especially because you have to buy an adaptor to make the SCSI port in any way useful. 'If SCSI + RAM VERDICT " A well-designed RAM card at a good price.

"The quality is outstandingly good" FUTURE MUSIC For this price you can't really do much better" AMIGA FORMAT Also Britain's favourite STREET SELF DEFENCE The most effective street fighting techniques revealed by atop professional 'bouncer' Top professional bouncer Paul Wellard has been attacked by fists, boots, pool cues and knives. He has learned a thing or two about what goes down in a real fight. As a 2nd Dan Karate Black Belt he has also learned that martial arts training is useful in a brawl, but it is no substitute for real street fighting "know how". An active participant in dozens of
fights where brawling is quick, dirty and very violent.
Wellard has compiled a unique guide to self defence The Secrets of Street Self Defence i volume 1 Reveals: • 18 facts you should know about street fighting • The "rules" for street survival
• Inside the mind of a thug • The martial arts and their
relevance to real life street fighting • How and why fights
occur t Dealing with confrontational situations.
• How to psyche out an opponent • Essential principles of street
fighting • Some commonly taught nonsense. • Using surprise to
your advantage • The importance of correct targeting. •
Blocking techniques. • How elbows and knees are used in a
street fight. • Vital tips. And much, much more. Price £12.95

2 Reveals: • The warrior mentality. • The most effective street
fighting techniques and how to use them. • Defence against
knife bottle attacks • Defence against more than one attacker.
• Using your fists and legs to maximum effect. • Headbutts. •
Physical conditioning for peak performance and much, much more.
Price £12.95 postpaid In his highly detailed books, Wellard
draws on his experiences to reveal the psychology, strengths
and weaknesses of a street fighter, the characteristics of a
real fight (you might be surprised): ways of dealing with
aggressive people and lots of tips and tricks. He presents the
basic defence moves that can be applied to most types of
attack, the most effective methods that he has used dozens of
times to defeat stronger and larger opponents. Wellard uses
accounts of his own fights to illustrate key points and offers
straight forward training programmes to improve individual
techniques. He supplies the critical information no one else
talks about - that will keep you unhurt and intact.

But GVP have come up with a solution for even the most processor power-hungry users. Nick Veitch does a standing quarter with the best-value accelerator the A1200 has ever seen.
A1230 Turbo+ install an Fpl' and some Fast RAM. There are mans Fpl' and RAM cards available for the A1200 and most of them give an average increase in speed of about 2.5 times that of a standard AI200.
The best solution of all though is to get an entirely new CPI'. The processor family of the Motorola 68000 series goes from the original 68000 through the 010.
The 020 (installed as siandard in the A1200). The 030 (found in the A3000 and A4000 030), the 040 (found in the A4000 040) and the 060 (not currently available for the Amiga, and in all likelihood it never will be).
As you progress through the series, the processors get faster. So obviously an 030 is a better processor to have in your machine than an 020. GAP thought so too.
Which is why they brought out the A1230.
The A1230 has now been upgraded to the A12S0 Turbo* (although the older versions are still available) which still features a 68030 chip, but this one is clocked at a massive 40.MII . A faster clock speed means a faster machine. II you don't believe us. Take a look at the speed comparison table - the A1230 is the Bonn to the A4000 030s Bruno.
Installing the A1230 Turbot is a simple matter ol popping out the trapdoor panel and slotting the beast home. No, really it is that easy. The A1230 Turbot is the easiest expansion it* lit into an AI200 ever. You won't have to resort to unscrewing everything and Irving a top down approach. Once installed, vou can simple the MMU unit to take a look at what's going on without disturbing the normal flow of processes.
Another use for the Memory Management Unit is in running Unix. Because of the nature of the operating system. Unix requires an MMU unit to run.
Fortunately most Amiga owners are too clever to want to run Unix.
The only thing it is very useful for, is to run GigaMem. The virtual memory system which makes your Amiga think it has more memory than it actually has.
There is no common use for the MMU, so most manufacturers decide to go for the (slightly) cheaper versions of the 68000 series processors which don’t have one. If you did have an MMU, it would probably just sit around most of the time being a bit of a lazy thing anyway.
WE ALL HAVE a need for speed.
Whether it is tearing up Tarmac on your motorbike (on private roads of course), waiting for the tube to arrive, or those tedious minutes spent watching the video rewind, there is an urgency to life.
You haven't got long and you need to cram as much into vour allotted years as possible. Nowhere does this become more evident than when you are waiting for vour Amiga to do something.
To a certain extent, multitasking helps relieve the problem. You can always be working on your accounts or formatting a disk, or writing the next Booker Prize winner while that huge Imagine file is rendering. But when you multitask, whatever you are waiting for takes even longer.
You don't get something for nothing.
Time spent on other tasks is time not spent tioing the big thing vou are working on.
The only way to resolve this is to buy in some extra power. There are several ways ol increasing the speed of the basic A1200.
And the simplest is to install some Fast RAM. Fltis doesn’t actually increase the processing speetl. But it does decrease the time it lakes to perform certain operations.
If data is cached in Fast RAM (which is only accessed bv the (.IT ) instead of Chip RAM, it means the CPI’ does not have to wait around for the custom chips to slop playing with the data bus.
The next liest solution is to install a Floating Point Unit (FPl). Or better still.
The 68030 chip which is installed in the A1230 is not really a 68030 chip at all. In fact it is a 68EC030 chip.
What does the EC mean? Basically, the EC chips (and you can get EC020S, EC030S and EC040s now too) have one part of the full package missing. This part is called the MMU.
An MMU is a Memory Management Unit. This is a component of the Central Processing Unit which allocates memory for different uses when required. This is not a terribly useful part of the processor from the Amiga's point of view, because AmigaDOS dynAMIGAlly allocates memory as and when the system needs it anyway.
However, there are some functions for which it would be useful to have an MMU, such as for using the development tool called Enforcer, which acts as a sentry to find out what AmigaDOS is up to. And uses MEMORY MANAGEMENT UNIT DO I WANT FLOATING POINTS?
There is a socket on the A1230 to permit the addition of a 68881 or 68882 chip. These chips are what are known as Floating Point Units, or FPUs.
No, they do not make your Dpaint pictures go all funny. Floating Point refers to mathematical routines which deal with numbers which have both a mantissa and an exponent. In fact this is the same way in which most modern calculators work. They have a number which contains the significant part of the number (say the first 10 digits) and an exponent which is the power of ten to which the number should be raised.
As you can imagine, calculating with these numbers is a fair bit more involved than dealing with just integers, so it takes a bit more processing time to come up with the answer. Unless you have an FPU that is.
The FPU spies on the instructions which are being fed to the main processor, the CPU. When a floating point operation comes along, the FPU steals it works out the answer and then feeds that to the CPU. Because the FPU is optimised for this sort of work, in fact that is its whole raison d'etre, it is able to carry out the operation much faster, usually in one clock cycle instead of the CPU's three or four cycles.

4. 64_ The software supplied with the A12S0 Turbot is a mix of
utilities for checking RAM and altering the processor options.
Or ii is supposed to be. The RAM lest works line, but the
processor control software seems to expect to find a O-Force
accelerator (the Zorro card version) and won't run. This is a
shame, because it contains the patch for enabling Shadow
ROM, Shadow ROM is a technique which involves copying all of
the Amiga's 5I2K ROM into Fast memory. This gives a marginal
speed increase, but it's not really worth it. Most people
would rather have the extra RAM.
The A12:10 Turbo+ can accept up to 32Mb of Fast memory, via SIMM modules in either 4Mb. 8Mb or 16Mb chunks, and it really is advisable to get at least 4Mb of RAM when you bin the unit. Amusingly enough, ifvou have no Fast RAM at all. The A1230 Turbot is only 98 per rent as fast as a plain A12(H)... O HOW AN A1200 WITH A GVP A1230 TURBO+ COMPARES WITH THE COMPETITION Notes:
1. These figures are for an A1200 with FPU and 4Mb Fast RAM.
Since it is virtually impossible to get an FPU without a RAM option.
2. This is a quickrender from Imagine INT. Not the FPU versions.
If the FPU version had been used, the figures for the A1200 with FPU would obviously be a lot better.
3. A graduated line fill on a complicated image.
The speed up with FPU is actually more due to the addition of Fast RAM.
See how quickly your A1200 works with the A1230 Turbo* by checking out the processing speed with the PD utility Sysinfo.
VERDICT “ Turbo* is a silly name - Turbonutter would have been much more apt. Now you can show up all those people who went out and bought an A4000 030, but on the other hand, it's so quick there'll be less time for cups of tea. ** 86% When you get Amiga Shopper, you get all this:

out two new Cds. The first is packed with games, demos and
utilities... THIS MIXED BAG of demos, games, clipart images and
samples contains thousands of programs. Utilities and pieces
of artwork, so as you would expect, the quality varies
immensely.
There are more than 70 demos, on the disc, but unfortunately all of the classic ones are missing. None ol this year's top 10 demos arc present (see Demo Zone, page 218). And many of the ones that are included are not overly inspiring. This may have something to do with Almathera's decision not to feature any demo that contains had language. Which instantly eliminates well over hall of those released.
Fortunately, there is far more to the disc than just demos. There are more than 2.000 SiuiiulTrarkn songs which you can load and edit using Almathera Systems Almathera Systems 081-687 0040 £19.95 one ol the many versions of SountTTrnrker intituled on the disc.
The disc also contains hundreds of clipart images, more than 100 I’D games and over ( .000 samples. Not everything is of a high standard, but there are enough pearls among the swine to make this a worthwhile collection. Among the high points are the excellent liner Initlx 2 game and a “ Although there's a huge collection of files, finding the ones you want can be a real struggle.

There is a good range of useful files, but there are Weird Science Weird Science, 1 Rowlandson Close, Brackenfield Chase, Leicestershire LE4 2SE PRICE £19.95 VERDICT two serious omissions: I’arNet and Workbench. If I’arNet had been included you could access the disc from another machine via a special lead in the parallel port. It is still possible to run I’arN'ct. But you will need an external lloppv drive connected to your CDTV.

MODULAR - Simple upgrade from Xcad 2000 to Xcad 3000 and PC UNIX versions.
Xcad harnesses the incredible power of the Amiga to deliver a draughting tool to beat all others. Processing times are cut to a fraction of most PC based systems. Plans, designs and blueprints can easily be produced using simple, flexible menus or commands.
The Xcad range starts from as little as £79* for Xcad 2000 (1Mb FAST RAM minimum) which includes both 2D Detailing and 3D Modeling plus automatic perspective views.
Imagine The 24 bit image below was completely originated on an Amiga computer. The drawings were designed with Xcad. The 3D model was created from the 2D drawings and the 24 bit image (1280 x 1024 resolution) was rendered with Imagine!
Compare this to AutoCAD, and 3D Studio which will cost £4550
- and that's just for the software!
Never before has the Amiga been so well complemented.
Never before has the Designer been given so much power, speed and flexibility at such an affordable price.
The above building was designed by Architect David Bishop, modelled by Xcad and rendered with Imagine.

The recent launch of Blitz Basic 2, AMOS has been taking more than a few knocks but it's not out for the count quite yet. Jason Holborn takes a look at a new extension that could put AMOS back on to its feet.
FOR MANY YEARS AMOS has ruled the BASIC programming language market with the sort of monopoly that British Rail would lie proud of. But now with the release of Ac id Software's brilliant Blitz Bush 2 their leadership has been challenged. In the battle for supremacy. AMOS has certainly taken more than its fait share of blows to the chin - lack of intuition and AGA support have both been contributing factors to its poor performance. But just when it seemed that AMOS was out for the count, it has received a much-needed boost in the form of Craft from Black Legend Software.
Craft is an extension for AMOS that adds more than 160 new commands to the existing AMOS instruction set. Unlike most AMOS extensions. Craft works with both AMOS Classic (the original AMOS) and AMOS l‘‘wfessional. Many AMOS extensions don't work with AMOS Professional so it’s good to see that Black Legend have made sure that all AMOS users c an benefit. It still won’t work with Easy AMOS, but then that's more a failing of Easy AMOS than a lack of vision from Black Legend.
With both AMOS Classic and AMOS Professional being sold so cheaply these days. Easy AMOS owners should take advantage of these price cuts while they can.
So what is Craft capable of- Short for Colours. Requester. Audio. Fractals and Turtle. Craft is a multipurpose extension.
That is. Its command set addresses more than one area of program development, unlike some extensions which tend to concentrate 011 one aspect of coding.
Solaris (the Finnish, and original, developers of Craft) have attempted to provide AMOS programmers with a wide selection of new and improved commands which cover areas that are either not addressed by the basic AMOS command set. Or are simply ignored.
The Craft system consists of two .lib extension files that need to be installed on to your AMOS program disk in order for i GET £6 OFF CRAFT j Because we know many of our readers will be keen to | get their hands on Craft, we've arranged a special deal j with Black Legend to save you a huge £6 ] If you want Craft for a mere f 19.99 (+£1 p&p) | instead of the normal £25.99 retail price, just send ¦ this coupon and a Cheque, Postal Order or Credit Card i order for £20.99 made payable to Black Legend i Software, to: | Amiga Format Craft Offer, Black Legend Software, | 25 Hart Road, St Albans,
Herts AL1 1NF.
I i t t i t AMOS to access them. Thankfully this is handled automatically using a well-presented Install menu which not only copies across the two files, but also automatically changes your AMOS Interpreter.(lonfig* file and even manages to create a disk packed full of demonstration programs foi you to play around with.
When attempting to install Cruft on to an A1200. I encountered a few copy protection problems with the review samples we were sent. However. Black legend assure me that these problems have now been rectified, thus you should be spared the heartache lhal I had to suffer.
Once installed, vou can start using the extra commands which Craft supplies simple by loading up your copy of AMOS. If everything runs smoothie. AMOS should inform you that two extra extensions have lieen loaded. Before you start placing around with the commands, it is worth taking the time to load up the demonstration programs bundled with the package - they adequately illustrate what Craft is capable of.
Particularly noteworthy is Craft's Mandelbrot and Julia fractal set demonstrations which use the Fractal commands built in to the extension to produce some control drawing operations by issuing commands such as Turn 50 (degrees) 01 Move 90 (units) to an invisible pen. Known as a Turtle. Kssentialh this gives you simple control over a polar co-ordinate system of drawing graphics.
The Craft commands are virtually identical to the Turtle graphics Iniilt in to most modern dialects of l-ogo (including Commodore's version), although the syntax is somewhat different, so don't expect lo he able to port code straight ac ross into AMOS. However, largo it.sell was used primarily as an education tool, so there is no reason wltv the Craft extension cannot Ire used in exactlv the same wav.
" With Craft Black Legend have definitely made a step in the right direction. A very powerful extension for AMOS, it makes writing any application in AMOS considerably easier."
Stunning images. Developers Solaris also include the same programs written in native AiMOS c ircle just to demonstrate how- fast its own fractal routines really arc - believe me, they're fast. I he range of fractal commands on ofler is impressive, but if Solaris were going to support this area at all it would have Ireetr better il Craft covered the full range ol frac tal graphic generation - in particular, a fractal landscape generator would have been useful.
A major addition to Craft's graphic drawing arsenal is its Turtle graphics commands. These work by enabling you to did not support mod format. Kuropress corrected this with the release ol AMOS itnwn I. • .
Cra I adds two new forms ol requester to AMOS - the good old Recoverable Alert (a hit like a Guru message hut without the fatal consequences) and - best of all - a highly configurable OK Gancel-stylc requester, which should have been built into AMOS years ago. I bis makes writing applications a whole lot easier.
A Dl'niiit-like colour requester accessors is also included with Craft which demonstrates its powerful colour handling commands although, surprisingh. This is not built into the command set.
Craft is a verv powerful extension for AMOS that makes the task ol writing applications in AMOS considerably easier.
However, its downhill is that it doesn’t include proper intuition support, support for the new AGA screen tvpes or faster hob and icon drawing commands. But. These gripes aside, ('.raft makes a definite step in the right direction. It may not he the one- stop solution that Black I.egend were hoping to produce, hut it is definitely the closest thing so far.
If our Coverdisk version ol Itlitz Hasic 2 on Amiga Format 52 hasn’t yet tempted you away from working with AMOS, then Craft could be the- product to reward your allegiance! R~i " At this sort of price. Craft should definitely be at the top of every AMOS programmer's Christmas list. It certainly gives AMOS a much-needed injection of new life. " 82% VERDICT ? RECORDING ?

(bpeii.llamK A Ipnt P«v I h D» IO( Ol I II IION II Is Using a heat fusion technique, Star's latest printer promises to produce colour laser quality for less than £700.
Richard Baguley waxes lyrical.
STAR HAVE FOREGONE the usual dot matrix and inkjet technologies for their latest offering. Instead, they have used a technique called heat fusion, which transfers the colours from a wax- based ribbon to the paper by momentarily heating the print head. This melts the wax and then transfers the colour to the paper. Although this process is certainly nothing new. It has previously been extremely expensive, with printers costing more than £ 1.000. Colour dot matrix ribbons have the four different colours used to print the image arranged in a series of horizontal stripes, but the ribbons for the
SJ-144 use a different system. They are divided into sections. Each containing one of the four primary colours - Cyan. Magenta. Yellow and Black. The image is printed in four passes, and the ribbon is wound 011 after each pass 10 a different colour section. It sounds odd. Hut it works. Unfortunately, it's a rather slow process, and means this printer is slower than the Canon BJ( -t 00 reviewed in A 'last month, which is able to print all four colours in one pass, because it has four separate print heads.
On the other hand, the SJ-144 has a wider printer head than most printers, which means it can print just under three lines of normal sized text with one pass of the print head. Therefore printing black and white text or images is significantly quicker than with a dot matrix, because the SJ-144 can prim several lines ai once, meaning ihai fewer passes are required ¦ complete the page.
Star distribute the cut down version of Wolf Fausts' I’nnl Sluttio with all their printers, and as part of the software there is a driver designed for use with the SJ-144.
Paper is held in a built-in sheet feeder at the rear of the machine, which can hold around 30 sheets, depending on the thickness of the paper. Paper can also be fed in through the rear of the machine, which enables you to print on thicker paper.
The quality ot the output is excellent, with strong bright colours and solid blacks.
You need to Ik- a bit careful about what sort of paper you use, because it doesn't much like thin or bumpy paper.
You should also bear in mind the cost of running the Star printer. Star quote a figure of 24.5 pages for each colour ribbon. But this will be significantly less if you're printing large images or ones with lots of black in them. With each ribbon costing around £14. You are looking at a figure of at least 50p per page of colour printing, although this will van with the amount of printing required for each page. Black ribbons cost around £11. And last significantly longer.
Overall. I'm extremely impressed with this printer, and it’s good to see an affordable printer using this previously expensive technique. The image quality is excellent, but the cost of running this printer could put people oil. It compares well with the BJ0600, but the Canon bubblejel prints slightly faster. In terms of quality, there is relatively little to choose between the two.
With both printers giving the same resolution. The Star performs slightly better with images with large areas of black, because the liquid ink used by the Canon can cause the paper to pucker. 1)
* * One of the smallest machines on the market, the SJ-144 is an
excellent colour printer, although it is fairly slow and will
be expensive to run.
The quality of the printouts is extremely good. M The documentation is well written with all of the relevant information easily accessible.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • The bundled printer driver software ensures that there won't be any hassles getting up and printing.
This machine produces excellent results with strong clear colours and solid blacks.
VALUE • •• It's not cheap, and with colour ribbons costing £14 each, it's not going to be cheap to run.

claim that their latest dot matrix printer offers high-quality
black and white printing at low volume.
Richard Baguley dons his ear muffs to put it to the test.
The Panasonic KX-P2023 dot matrix printer offers good quality black and white printing, but do you really need a black and white printer?
PRINTING CAN BE health ha ard. The* noise from most dot matrix printers has been known to drive dogs wild and to wake the dead, especially when you're printing out the latest draft of your 500 page novel about life and death in a grim northern town.
Panasonic's latest offering for the ever-hungrv printer market is the KX- P2023. A 24-pin black and white printer with a Super Quiet mode. In terms of hardware, it’s fairlv standard, weighing in at around live kilograms. It’s about 13cm high, although the optional sheet feeder adds about another 13cm to this. The sheet feeder is an optional extra, although if you get a move on and buy vour printer before the end ol December this year, then you'll get it free.
Included with this printer is a special driver written by Amiga printer guru Wolf Faust. Vs well as all the usual control over the print density, dither patterns, and the suchlike, the driver also enables you to control the single sheet feeder and to put the printer into Super Quiet mode.
Although this mode is quieter than normal, it's still rather loud anti irritating in a high-pitched whining noise sort of way which all users of dot matrix printers will be familiar with. This is especially true when printing graphics, but it is a lot quieter when printing text. Using this Super Quiet mode also slows down printing significantly. So you have to decide which is most important: quicker printing or your ears and sanity.
The quality ol the output is good, with solid blacks and a controllable dither meaning that even graphics, which normally look weak on a 24-pin printer, look good although a fair amount of fiddling and experimentation is necessary to get the best results.
There is a slight amount of handing, hut this is not particularly pronounced.
This is some test text printed out on Panasonics new KX-P2023 printer in the 'Prestige' Pont, one of the five built into the machine. What do you think of the quality?
Panasonic KX-P2023 font PI Brut Ih I (Mr S.t PI 6r«rtit 1 I 81s Birpct. PI II | 2*r« PI Upon I I Pitch Pi 17 cpi | P.p. Umth Pjll.47 lpc | kUKtl and can be nearly eliminated with some careful adjustment. Five fonts in a variety of sizes are built into the printer (Program. Cannier. Prestige. Bold PS and Script). Text printing is reasonably fast, with a quoted speed of SO characters per second in letter quality mode and 240 cps in draft quality.
The printer driver included with the printer gives plenty of control over all aspects printing.
It can also print when the print head is moving in either direction, so there's no need for the print head to return at the end of each line to continue printing.
This is certainly a line 24-pin dot matrix printer at a reasonable price. The output is good, and the quality of the graphics is perfectly respectable. However, there is a wide variety of high-quality colour printers that will only cost you a few pounds more, and the decreasing price and increasing quality of bubhlejet, inkjet and laser, printers makes me wonder whether dot matrix technology hasn't finally had its day.
This is the sort of text quality you can expect from the Panasonic KX-P2023.
Perhaps the time hits arrived for dot matrix printers to join all those eight-inch disk drives, punch cards, paper tape drives, and BBC.
Micros in the great museum of computing history. 2 Reasonably fast, but putting it into quiet mode does slow things down considerably.
No specific Amiga information, but all the technical gen is present correct and well written.
ACCESSIBILITY • • • • The Amiga driver gives you full control over the printer, including aspects such as the sheet feeder.
The Super Quiet feature does cut down on the noise level, but not to the extent I would have liked.
VALUE • •• Not bad value, but with plenty of colour 24-pin printers available for only a few quid more... VERDICT “ It's a good black and white 24-pin printer, with high-quality output and comprehensive driver. Unfortunately for Panasonic, there are colour printers available for only a few pounds more which give Just as much in terms of quality. W 70% ~ Uf 5 i i 8 0 J X UJ 1 ?

you're looking for a stocking filler for your Amiga-owning loved one, you then you could do a lot worse than going into the Public Domain Christmas grotto, sitting on Richard Baguley's knee, and seeing what he pulls out of his sack... L-Jhat does this sign nean?
I think the answer to this one is three.
Perhaps that explains why I've never learned to drive... MOIUCUS EXPRESS PD U1002 I must admit that I've never been a great Ian of cars, unlike the editor of this line magazine, who drives one of the laslest big pink cars you can gel.
Anyway, to pass your driving lest, you're supposed to be able tt recognise a profusion of road signs and answer questions such as "What’s the stopping distance of a two-ton elephant at 7(1 mphr" Ibis program provides you with a handy way of testing your knowledge with a multiple choice quiz tut all the aspects of the Highway (aide.
There are a total 123 text questions, plus 73 questions relating to traffic signs, all with a choice of three possible answers. Codrmongus is very well pul together, and even features a high score table, which adds to its entertainment value. So il you're not sure of the difference between a Humpbacked Bridge and a Men At Work sign, this could be a useful program for you.
The title screen of Bounty issue eight. The two-disk mag.
Which covers a wide range of issues, now costs C3.
BOUNTY CYNOSTIC DO-189 Dual carriageway ends Dual carriageway begins No tuning forks Ifisk mags are last becoming something ol an art form, with a lot ol coding groups producing their own mags such as this one. Bounty has been around for a few months now. And this is the eighth issue. But it's no longer Iree and from now on you'll have to fork out t:t lor the two-disk mag.
Bounty doesn’t look as exciting as disk mags such as Grofmonr or l.unrhtimr, because it’s all text based (except for the gallerv section), but the articles are ol a high qualilv. Topics covered in this issue range from shag pile carpeting to game reviews and swearing (which is not big or clever).
ENTITY ' CYNOSTIC It vou hadn't noticed, vou are bring invaded bv the hntitv. And all vou have to defend voursell is a Stix Sounds nastv. You're also enclosed in an electrified fence, and il vou touch the side, a short i ire nil drains vour batteries and sets vour bonus to MOTOROLA INVADERS 2 AGA TELESCAM I must admit that the original Motorola Invaders passed me by. But that doesn't stop this being an excellent game. As you may have guessed, it bears a certain resemblance to the classic arcade game called Space Invaders, but instead of aliens you have to shoot Viruses. These nasty little
specimens are trying to get to the bottom of the screen, and thus invade your computer. It's your task to blast them into oblivion.
On the first level, they zoom around randomly, but on the second, they act like conventional Invaders and move down the screen in rows. If you get as far as the third level, you have to face a rather large boss virus, who takes an awful lot of expunging. As you may have guessed from the name, this game will only work on AGA machines (the A1200 and A4000). But the author (Martin Rebas from Sweden) has done a good job of using Get on to level three and you have to face this rather nasty invader who takes a lot of shots to destroy.
The extra power of the AGA chipset to create smooth graphics, good backgrounds and a sampled Me tallica soundtrack.
POWERTEXT CUR PowerText is, as you would expect a word processor. However, it differs from most in that it only costs f 3.SO, instead of the usual f 90 or so. Created by AMOS veteran Gary Stimson PowerText is an impressive bit of programming. It boasts many powerful functions and is designed for producing printed documents.
The most useful part of the program is the ability it gives you to insert commands into a document in a similar way as you do with Protext.
These commands control the printer, and can set font size and justification. These commands don't affect the screen representation of your document so the program is certainly not a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) word processor. But with a bit of planning and a few practice runs, LlM. 1 Celtmn' 1 I PoMi-tf .t Milrmt Mw It trl nr * ltd tT»SfOf e*hc» fiMtly. Vr tH ik» rijki nirsim lb lk»l II* Mrm a tkf nil si4r el ik» Inin.

my trier PowerText is an extremely capable and effective word
processor, and it will only cost you a measly £3.50. PowerText
can produce excellent results. It’s certainly not going to
replace the best commercial word processor programs such as
Wordworth or Final Copy, but for producing simple documents.
PowerText is an extremely capable and highly effective tool.
Unfortunately, the well-intentioned programmers have created a disk that is only of limited use. The program is designed to show a new user around OctaMED (up to version 3), but it fails on one serious count. Because the author wrote the program using AMOS, it can't multitask, which means that you can't read a section in the tutorial, flick over into OctaMEl to try something out. And then flick back to the tutorial.
You could get round this rather annoying problem by printing out the 20 or so screens which form the tutorial, but this is hardly an ideal solution to the problem.
The author obviously knows a lot about using OrlaMEl). As the live songs included on the disk show. It's just a pity that this knowledge is presented in a manner which makes it difficult to get the most out of it. 'Ii I Careful where you point that Stixl You could have somebody's eye out with thatl THIS YEAR'S TOP lO GAMES & UTILITIES We've seen hundreds of PD games and utilities over the year, and there’s a wealth of programs out there to enrich your Amiga-using life in every way you can imagine. Here's our pick of the year... zero. So. You move your Stix around with your mouse controlling
one end. While the other moves randomly. Anything that gets between the two points is zapped. To make matters a bit more- tricky, the Entity attacks you in multiple parts, some of which take more than one zap to destroy.
If any part of the Entity gets to the wall, it will drain some of your energy and once that falls to zero, it's goodnight Vienna.
Entity is a fast, complex and Irustrating blast- em-up without the blast. Perhaps that should be a zap-em-up. Anyway, we mentioned this game in PD Update way back in April, but the author has rewritten it so it's faster, and now works properly on A1200 and A4000s. He's also working on the AGA version, which should Ik- out next year.
OCTATUTOR TELESCAM Using your Amiga to make music can plex business, and powerful programs such as OctaMEl) can be a touch difficult to get to grips with. So. Anything that makes ii easier to work out what's going on in these programs can't be bad.

CYNOSTIC PD Office 1, New Enterprise Centre Little Heath Ind. Est.. Old Church Road, Coventry CV6 7NB. 0203 613817 IT IS A rare and fortunate Amiga user who lias never been struck by a virus. These rogue programs. Such as Byte Bandit and the Crime Virus, can hide on an infected machine and emerge at a predetermined time to do something extremely nasty, litis can range from changing your mouse pointer lo overwriting a random part of your hard disk and possibly destroying all the data held there.
Whatever it does, a virus will cause you problems.
Virus Writers beware! Somebody is out to get you. Richard Baguley looks at how Safe Hex International are taking on the virus programmers.
Fortunately, there is a solution. Programs such as Virtu Checker and Virus , can Ik- run in the background on your machine, and will check for any viruses which are hiding on your Amiga. They will also check every new disk you insert to make sure that nothing unpleasant is lurking on it. Both of these programs are regularly upgraded, and they are widely available as Freeware.
Safe Ilex International (SHI) has been at the forefront of the battle against viruses since 1990, but it's only recently that a UK branch of the organisation has opened. SHI is run by Paul Browne, who participates in anti-virus efforts with the other blanches of the organisation around the world, including the head office in Denmark, nut by Erik Lovcndhal Sorenson.
Safe Hex International concentrates on producing The New Superkillers, a disk containing the most up-to-date versions of the best anti-virus programs, litis comes in two versions for Workbench 1.3 and Workbench 2 and above users. It’s upgraded regularly. And part of the money made from the disk goes to the authors of the programs, and towards the campaign to raise awareness of what viruses are and how to prevent them spreading.
SHI offers a reward of SI.(100 for information leading to the conviction of virus programmers, and they are currently working with the police on

One case with a view to prosecuting a virus author.
Because this case is still pending we can't print details, but anybody who has encountered a virus will agree that legal action against the people who write these destructive programs is long overdue.
But why do people write virus programs? Well the simple answer is dtat it's because they are bloody minded, they intentionally want to inconvenience. Or they get some sort of kick out of showing off their programming ‘skills'. Whatever the reason, creating a virus is certainly not big and it's not clever.
One word of caution: many of the anti-virus programs will complain about games disks, and generate messages about “Non standard boot blocks". This doesn't mean that your disks arc- infected by a virus, just that the program dcn-sn't recognise what's on the disk.
G jilt: XI | |»n IwttlKtl (Ml luttual Q fm: hoi | |K Iwtlltrt | frutr htm | | Mw taltlvl ft NMM-a*,.! WHMH MM This is the Bootlab of VimsZ looking at the bootblock of the Second Semurei demo on AFS1.
Many software houses use different wavs of storing data on the disk to stop people copying them, and some anti-virus programs will offer to re-install the hootblock with a standard one. You should never reinstall the bootblock with a standard one on a game disk, because this could damage the disk and render the game unplayable.
If you want further information about Safe- Hex International, contact them at: SHI Regional Virus Centre UK. 304 Leeds Road. Eccleshill.
Bradford. West Yorkshire BD2 3LQ, or at the following E-Mail addresses: 2:250 320.4@Fidonet.org or 29:138 14.4@A miganet.org. SHI can also Ik- contacted on the Fidonet echo SAKE JI EX.
The New Superkillers disk costs £2. Safe Hex International will send you the next five updated versions of the disk for £10, Cheques should be made payable to Paul Browne. O VIRUS UPDATE PUBLIC DOMAIN JARGON BUSTED The world of Public Domain is full of confusing terms and names. At Amiga Format we aim to demystify this world, so here's our easy guide to common PD terms and names.
One of the newest viruses likely to be encountered by Amiga users is the Crime Virus, which has two strains (CRIME and CRIME**). It's not yet clear exactly what this virus does or how it is triggered, but it's likely to do something nasty.
This virus appears to be able to infect data files and turn them into infected executable files. This caused some panic when a recent version of Virus Checker (6.31) falsely reported that files compressed with the utility Powerpacker were infected, and proceeded to try and remove the virus, damaging the files in the process.
Unfortunately, this damage was not easily repaired, and many people lost important files.
Later versions of Virus Checker do not detect the Crime Virus, and Safe Hex International recommend that you use VirusZ version 3.07 to deal with this unpleasant virus.
PUBLIC DOMAIN - Any software which is in the Public Domain (PD) can be copied and distributed by anybody, as long as no money beyond the cost of the disk changes hands. There are many companies that sell PD who advertise in AF, so read through the adverts in the following pages. Many PD companies will make up collections of programs with a specific theme or purpose, so if you need a certain type of program, check the adverts and phone around. You are also allowed to make copies of PD disks and distribute them to friends, again as long as you're not making a profit.
SHAREWARE - This means that the freely distributable version on the disk is disabled in some way, and the full version is obtainable by sending a small sum to the author. Some people distribute the full version, but with the proviso that if you use the program regularly, you should send them a small registration fee.
LICENCEWARE - This is somewhere between PD and commercial programs, in that you are not allowed to distribute them, but they don't cost very much. A Licenceware disk will cost you under a fiver, but as a rule the quality of the programs is much higher than many PD programs.
FREEWARE - With Freeware, there are no restrictions, and you can copy it as many times as you like, and pass it on to friends or upload it to bulletin boards.

x) emo ione the rest of us went out carol singing in our scarves
and woolly hats, and then downed pitchers of mulled wine
around a blazing log fire, Stephen Bradley worked late into
the night, alone in a corner of the AF office to bring you all
the latest news from the demo scene... SATURNE 93 TELESCAM
Here's a slideshow with a nice jazzy barking nark, which is a
bit like watching the Vision On gallery ("I'm sorry but we
can’t return any of your disks").
Many subjects and styles are crammed on to the disk ranging from the naked-woman-clulching- sword-riding-dragon style, to cuddly cartoon bunnies and a rather menacing looking clown.
I he quality is mostly very good (some are a little blurred) though it's best recommended to the dedicated gallery folk.
PERIL MBS (DISK PI26) With a leading man who looks like a cross between Dracula and Michael Barrymore, Peril is tale of er.
Peril. Peril, thal is, for a blonde female who happens to be lied lo a train track by the lovable neck-biting game show host. Does he strike it lucky or will the temptress Ik- saved from the rapidly approaching express? Can leaves on the line stop the train? Created using Dpainl , Peril isn't the most sophisticated of .Amiga anims but there are some nice touches ol humour.
THE TEAPOT AMD THE ANCLEPOISE LAMP MBS (DISK P125) THE FIGHT TELESCAN The Fight is the first in a series of animations (we're told) by somebody called Evan. The Fight is an almost Monty Python Gillian romp with a You don't see this going on outside the chippy ol a Friday night, lain McCaffrey has produced an excellent (if rather brief) animated battle, using Deluxe Paint 4. Which pits teapot against lamp.
Beautifully drawn and incredibly smooth, tin- light is a series ol moves bv each combatant ending in the destruction of both parties. A message there for all you silly lamps and teapots who think that fighting is clever (that bloke's a nutter).
DAT A-X TRILOGY MBS (DISK M526) Yo! Trevor McDonald, turn up the bass. And indeed he did. Lot on this Data-X demo we are treated to a rave version of the .Vrwt at Ten theme.
Strong sense of the absurd running through it. A couple of Morph-type characters get involved in a ruck. Not so much brawling as carefully choreographed moves as in WWF. The best scene involves one chap dropping from above, getting back-kicked in the chops, whereupon he picks up a FIT OilX 2 AMD 3 AGA TELESCAM Swirling cityscapes set the mood for Extension, a moody, atmospheric and visually splendid demo.
EXTENSION CYMOSTIC (DISK D0182) Imagine if you will, the incidental music for a cat ( base in an extremely low budget American cop movie. The track on this demo by the interestingly-named duo Coconut and Flame, sounds as if it would lit such a scenario perfectly. And I like it.
Visually. Extension by Pygmy Projects is one of the more innovative demos of the many that wait patiently in the queue on my busy desk each month. The dotscapes and tunnels and swirling city scapes (as well as the obligatory Glen vectors) are mostlv extremely effective and at times Extension is quite atmospheric. O Beavis and Butthead regularly make the observation that "naked girls are cool. Huh. Huh huh.
Huh huh". And who am I to argue with them? If you agree that naked girls are cool, and would like to look at reasonably good quality pictures of naked, young-feller-me-lasses, then Fit Chix 2 and 3 should be right up your street. Not that they're completely naked you understand, just sort of semi-naked.
TIP PITY TOP IO FOR 1993 Not the bestsellers, but what we thought were the best.
1. STATE OF THE ART (CYMOSTIC, DISK D0031) The graphically
stunning State of the Art saw the rave demo come of age. The
smart vector polygons and smooth morphing outshone the
music.
2. REVELATIONS (CYMOSTIC PD, DISK P0028) This incredible
slideshow was created using either 16 or 64 colours, yet the
results are stunning with remarkable attention to detail.
3. JESUS ON E'S (MBS DISKS 13 D9&10) LSD's lengthy megademo
consisting of flashy swirly graphics synchronised to an
excellent rave track was well received in the Amiga _ ...
...... Format office back Jesus On E's set the standard . _ ,
for rave demos in 1993. ¦" February.
Roddy McMillan's six minute anim about Maxel Mite's experience at a haunted manor is visually resplendent and features some quite wonderful sound
4. QUALITY TIME (TELESCAM, DISKS 1-4) Flip the Frog's attempts to
get it on with Amy Squirrel are frustrated in Eric Schwartz's
six minute. 5Mb monster. Cute and funny.
S. DESERT DREAMS (EXPRESS PD, DISKS A1276 18.2) A cross between a
megademo and a trackmo.
Desert Dreams is beautifully illustrated and backed by some great tunes, expertly synched.
WHERE TO GET THE DISKS Ml THIS ISSUE A mixed bag of slides this, ranging from fantasy, lo Athena poster-type pictures, to the Japanese style of Manga animation - a very popular artistic genre for slideshows at the moment. All of the images on the disk hate previously appeared in the Art Gallery section of Scanner disk magazines. Three of them are HAM and the rest are either lb or 32-bit.
With such a wide variety, there will Ik- something in here that appeals to most tastes. Me. I liked the painted Union Jack face best because it reminded me of Among The Thugs book by Bill Buford.
Gun. Shoots his opponent dead and promptly gets squashed by a large human fist. I think there's probably a moral in there somewhere.
The Fight is a totally excellent (but sadly all too brief) looped animation and is well worth a gander - whatever that means.
Unlikely bedfellows they may well make, yet The Marcels sit comfortably aside News at Ten and The Jam.
The Jam's doing Underground and lllur Moon by The Marcels also get similiar treatment. I'd be misleading you somewhat if I said the demo was visually rewarding, it's just a tunnel effect with the colours changing now and again. But if you fancy 17 minutes of daft ravey wavey Davey music then check this out.
