Then camp out by your letter boa and await the arrival of your free game courtesy of Mirrorsoft antPCU Amiga - THE magazine for the discerning Amiga user. Hristmas may well be over lor another year, but there is one more celebration left betore the new year takes hold. One more celebration, that is, tor Amiga owners as their numbers pass the one million mark in the UK, and 1992 is set to be a magical year tor the Amiga. Most ot this magic will stem trom hard work which went into-last year, which saw major landmarks established: the launch ot the Amiga CD-TV, the new Amiga 500P, and the Amiga's unquestioned dominance ot the home computer market. OPEN LETTER It’s not often that CU Amiga gives its dearly beloved pages to guest writers - but what better way to see in the New Year, and the sale of 80, 000 new Amigas than an address by Commodore MD, Steve Franklin? The most tangible proof of this dominance lies with the Christmas poll of titty top independent computer retailers. When asked what they thought would be the biggest selling computer this Christmas, an astonishing 96% replied in favour ot the Amiga - the remaining 4% plumped tor the C64. All this success means more choice for Amiga owners, more software, peripherals, sales outlets, and innovation. Already established as the first choice for publishers, Amiga titles will continue to be brought to market first, benefiting trom development on and for the Amiga. These developments will then be passed on - as witnessed by the introduction of the A500P in October last year. As the first major revision of the Operating System for three years, the speculation over incompatible software has proved totally unfounded. All major software publishers endorse the new format, and have been developing software for the new machine for the past 18 months. In fact, the only people to have been 'less than impressed' with the new Amiga were those with stocks of delisted and old budget games on their hands. No compatibility problems exist with either current or future releases; indeed virtually all full-price software available now is fully supported - but if you have any doubts then check with your dealer first. The benefits of the new OS have been well-documented in magazines such as CU Amiga. In essence, the key benefits are in better display resolution and the improved productivity users can expect. The reasons these issues are important lies in the way the Amiga is now used.

All aspects of the Amiga will be covered, including business, education, DTP and, of course, entertainment. If the attendance at the recent Earls Court Show is anything to go by tickets should be booked early and all enquiries can be directed towards
Westminster Exhibitions Ltd, Surrey House, 34 Eden Street KT1 1ER. Tel: 081 549 3444. CU Amiga will have a stand at the show, so if you want to have a chat, shows us some of your work or discuss the magazine, please drop by and say hello.
Meet the CU crew at the 16-bit Computer Show... World's best pinball sim from 21 st Century? ... Commodore and Japanese in CDTV venture... New easy Amos to be released... Robocop 3 is pirate-proof... New compatibilty add-on THREE FROM ONE graphics. Console-style gaming coupled with platform action make this a promising project. Perhaps the most exciting is their proposed Pinball game. Although in its early stages, the finished product will incorporate all the features you'd expect to find on one of the more conventional arcade machines.
There should also be a facility that will allow you to create your own table - now that would be something!
21st Century Entertainment have three interesting products in the pipe line. Rubicon, a fast action shoot 'em up, boasts some absorbing game-play and equally attractive graphics, whilst Deliverance follows on from the success of Cybernoid and Stormlord.
Having undergone a complete redesign for the 16-bit version, 21st Century hope to provide an exciting mixture of Barbarian-style hack'n’slash and arcade-style 'monster’ COMPATABILITY SOLVED!
Amiga 500 Plus readers led up with incompatibility problems can rest easy.
Centresoft have developed a 500 Plus ROM chip which makes all your lovely software that wouldn't load, loadable again, and all (or only £29.99. Also available is the Addxtra, which includes a new 1 Meg upgrade which, when used in conjunction with half Meg Amigas, will increase memory lo 2 Megs for only £59.99. SIX OF THE BEST The first games exclusively for the CDTV are now beginning to appear.
On-Line have six titles about to hit the softshops including Animals in Motion (a study of Disneyesque-type images), Chaos in Andromeda (a fantasy RPG utilising tons of digitised animations sound effects and music set inside a blazing space carrier), Hound of the Baskerviiies (pit your wits against the famous Sherlock Holmes.), Psycho Killer (an interactive TV experience, filmed with real actors and digitised), Women in Motion and Town With No Name (a cartoon Wild West adventure in five languages). Watch for them in the new year.
SHOW TALK The World of Commodore Show, held at Earls Court in November, received a record attendance of 35,790 visitors. The show was reported as being the biggest computer show ever held in Britain with three times the floor space of last year’s event. Plans are already afoot to make next year's show even bigger and better - and you can bet that CU will be there in force.
ADVANTAGE TENNIS Infrogrames have a tasty looking tennis game waiting for release.
As you'd expect, the game is bursting with options and tournaments with the usual choice of venues and playing surfaces, but what makes this tennis game different is the use of what look like pipe-cleaner sprites. Don't be put off, though, because the animation that’s gone into the players is phenomenal. If you can picture the character from Prince of Persia in a Fred Perry shirt and shorts you'd be pretty close. A whole arsenal of shots are available including a special through-the-legs shot. Be warned, however, as your player is sometimes prone to throw a tantrum or two.
CHAMPIONS There are sporting games everywhere this month and Krisalis have decided to add their own contribution to the Festive hamper. Champions is a three game compilation including the recent Jahangir Khan World Championship Squash game, the original Manchester United football game and World Championship Boxing Manager which received a CU Screen Star when first released. If you’ve been clever and have kept up to date with these releases in our magazine, you’ll be able to make your own mind up, but as far as we're concerned the boxed set looks like being a winner. GREAT NAPOLEONIC BATTLES
strategy specialists, Impressions, are to release a game set during the Napoleonic Wars. Scenarios include the battle of Waterloo (which ended Napoleon’s career), Quatre Bras Ligny and Bonaparte's first great victory at Marengo. The title also indudes a map editor, man editor and war editor so that the game can be customised to your own needs.
CAVITAS Nite Time Games are set to release their first game in January. Cavitas is a six-level shoot 'em up adventure set deep beneath a planet’s surface. Stumbling across signs of an ancient civilisation, in the form of some abandoned mining machinery, it’s up to you to explore the deep and cavernous underground caverns. Your team of hand-picked men encounter all kinds of beasts and can easily get lost in the maze-like passageways which require a subtle blend of puzzle- solving and brute force to circumvent. BLACK CRYPT More RPG escapades are on their way from Electronic Arts in the form of
their new game, Black Crypt.
The programmers behind the fantasy adventure want us to think of it as more of a dungeon simulator that'll give a player the impression of walking through a multi-level dungeon. All combat is animated on-screen as are all the spells and actions of your character.
The usual assortment of tricks and traps are incorporated plus a novel twist that allows the monsters to learn certain spells and give you a taste of your own medicine. The visual aspects of the game are very detailed and this could be a contender for the RPG crown.
MORE OF SEYMORE Code Masters' very own super hero, Seymore, is back in another platform arcade adventure featuring huge cartoon graphics and animation. Super Seymore Saves the Planet is an environmental epic that wreaks of chemical misuse.
SEE Equipped with a host of super power-ups, Seymore must combat the toxic waste that ails the Earth and clear up the mess. The game promises to have loads of levels and be equally as much fun.
STRIDE ON Programming team, Tiertex, have turned away from the Strider series to concentrate on Grandslam’s new game, Die Hard 2 - Die Harder. The computer version of the hit film will be loosely based on the movie and include Operation Wolf-type shoot 'em up sections and arcade romps. Set over five levels, the action takes in snow mobile chases and dog fights in the sky. Each level is separated by mind-bending subgames and the finished game should be available as you read this.
OFFICIAL WORLD CUP CRICKET The New Year will be a hive of activity for sports fans. Not only will the European Football Championships be gearing up. But the Cricket World Cup will be batting off. Too. So what better time for Soundware International to put out their cricket game? Every aspect of willow beating is . . 1 ' eluded and you can choose to represent ¦ f-H I [FI I one of nine world class sides. One of the
- ! hardest things to simulate in cricketing HLJhM games is
bowling, but in this version you can achieve anything from a
Daisy Cutter u to a Yorker. The game is for one or two players
with any controversial judgements J ......|_____| strictly
controlled by the umpire, so dodgy appeals for LBW will fall on
deaf ears. How the game will fair against Audiogenic's Graham
Gooch license is anybody's guess, so watch out for reviews of
both games next month.
LANGUAGE LINK-UP Microdeal are already jumping onto the CD bandwagon with the release of a language-based learning program for French students starring everyone's favourite Gallic warrior, Asterix. Developed by Eurotalk, the program exploits the Amiga CDTV’s amazing audio capabilities with over 30 hours of French study and more than 60 minutes of spoken French.
There are 30 characters to meet in the cartoon environment and over 400 cartoon drawings in full colour.
The system can also be linked up to Voice Master, enabling you to listen to one of 70 sentences selected from the story as well as the facility to record your spoken French.
SOMETHING FOR NOTHING If anyone's having problems finding educational software, Rickitt Educational Media operate an efficient mail-order business specialising in just such a service. The programs are suitable for preschool learners as well as students studying for GCSE. All programs are a fun mixture of graphics and sound and specific packages conform to the National Curriculum Key Stages 1 and 2.

57152. ' L Following hard on the heels of top programming
pack- age, Amos, comes the beginner’s version Easy Amos.
M| The new product consists of 350 Amos commands being given by, of all things, a Martian professor. He 3 provides useful hints and help, so Amos can be as easy and fun as possible. Older programers, who happen to be beginners too might not find the prof to their liking, but for those with absolutely no prior knowledge it might be worth bearing with the youthful approach.
When sport gets serious At MicroProse we’re serious about sport.
Because we know you are.
But it’s only a game.
Try to remember that when you’re playing our simulations HiCRC PROSE MicroProse Ltd. Unit 1, Hampton Road Industrial Estate, Tetbury, Glos. GL8 8DA. Tel: 0666 504 326 NEW AMIGA It’s rumoured that Commodore are planning an extension to their Amiga range of computers in an attempt to tackle the console market. High on the list of possibilities is the A300, which would incorporate some very special new innards and a reduced keyboard. The A300 would probably retail at between C250 and £300 pounds and could spark a frantic new round of price cuts across the board. From Switzerland, there's also
unconfirmed rumours of an A4000 and we'll bring you more news as and when Commodore release it.
To our story last month concerning Ocean’s new pirate-beating software protection system, we can now reveal that the device, known to many as the 'dongle', will be shipped out with every version of Robocop 3. The key plugs directly into a joystick port and without it the game will not run. The 'dongle' is basically a PCB with a chip. Games can be copied as normal, but all copies will have to run with the extra device plugged into the back of the Amiga. However, this news is not only bad for pirates, but responsible gamers, too. Unless something else can be done to replace the used up 2nd
port it could spell the end for simultaneous two- player games forever. Also, if this system is taken up by other software houses every single 'dongle' will have to be different for each new game released and someone, somewhere, will have to foot the bill. And we all know who that'll be, don't we punters! The companies have always maintained that the main reason for exorbitant prices has been due to the losses made from pirating. With piracy defeated, will prices now start to come down? We can only wait and see.
SENSIBLE CHOICE Mirrorsoft are continuing their productive relationship with Sensible Software, and have just announced that four more - titles are currently in the works from the Cambridge-based development team.
As well as a datadisk and sequel for the highly-acclaimed Mega-lo-Mania, SOFT OPTION Mev Dine, still basking in the brilliant reviews for his First Samurai beat 'em up, is currently working on his next project for Mirrorsoft. It's rumoured to be a Super Sprint-sty e game offering more tracks and cars than Gremlin's ultra-slick Super Cars.
More news as we get it.
PROJECT PROJET Citizen have added another printer to their ever expanding range. The PROjet has three print speeds, with the fastest being 360 cps, and three resident fonts: Courier, Times Nordic and Letter Gothic. The machine is capable of landscape and portrait printing and features an easy-to-use control panel. The basic printer weighs in at £496, but with accessories the totasl cost could be over £700.

As our disks reach their quarter-cen- tury we've got two contenders for the Christmas Number One spot - Ocean’s Space Gun and Storm’s Big Run as well as a fistful of useful utilities and brilliant programs.
Simply insert the disk into your Amiga’s drive and it will autoboot to reveal a menu. Simply select which demo you want to play with the relevant ‘F’ key and you're away... All the programs on these two disks will work on the new A500 Plus - Guaranteed!
ON YOUR DISKS SPACE GUN Step into the combat boots of an intergalac- tic Marine on the mission of a lifetime. A signal has been received from a colonised base regarding an invasion by a race of hostile creatures, but since this was received nothing more has been heard. Thus, equipped with the latest in weaponry, you have been sent to investigate and destroy any hostile forces.
Our Space Gun demo features a complete level from Ocean’s conversion of the Taito coin-op, and gives a taste of what to expect in the final version.
The game is a variant on the Operation Thunderbolt theme, with the base's many corridors twisting and turning as you make your way through the base. The mouse is used to control the game, with the left button sending a stream of fire into the screen. The hostilities begin as soon as the Aliens start appearing, and these must be blown apart before they can reach you.
Whenever an Alien gets too close, scratch or bite marks will appear on the screen, indicating that you have taken a hit and your energy will be depleted slightly as a result.
As the play area is scrolled, care must be taken not to hit any of the colonists who make a break for cover, as killing these unfortunates results in a premature ending to your mission.
However, to make your unenviable bug hunt a little easier, packing crates often contain extra supplies for your gun, including firebombs, freeze grenades, and smart bombs, which are stored for later use. The left Amiga key is used to switch between the stored weapons, with the on-screen target changing to indicate which is currently in use. So, get ready for battle... NB: Due to the complexity of the demo, leave the disk in the drive for further accessing.
BIG RUN All the thrills of Jaleco’s coin-op are brought to your Amiga, courtesy of Storm, and we've got an exclusive peek of what to expect. The Big Run coin-op features several levels of hot race action, with the player guiding their car across a series of torturous routes in a desperate race against the clock. The scene is the Paris-Dakar Rally, with the player coming up against all kinds of adverse conditions as they speed towards each check point.
Our demo contains a section of the desert level, but the basic aim remains the same.
The joystick is used to control the car, with the left and right controls steering the vehicle, with the fire button flooring the accelerator. As progress is made, the road will start to wind to the left and right, and leaving the lighter trail will slow your progress considerably. In addition, contact with any roadside objects should be avoided at all costs, as should the speed-reducing water which occasionally spills over into your path.
COVEMMSKS IF YOUR DISK WON'T LOAD?
In the unlikely event of your CU disk not loading, remove all external cartridges and peripherals and try again. If it still 24 25 won't load, pop the offending disk in an envelope and address itto: CU DISK RETURNS, PC Wise Merthyr Industrial Park, Pentreebach, Mid Glamorgan . CF48 4DR They will then test the disk and send a replacement as soon as possible. Ring the PC Wise Helpline for any urgent problems. It's open between 10:30 a nd 12:30 during weekdays and can be reached on: (0443) 693233 Whilst CU Amiga makes every effort to check cover disks for all known viruses, we can accept no
responsibility for possible damage caused by viruses which may have escaped our attention.
I S K REAL THINGS DEMO On our second packed disk, we've got a wonderful demo from RGB Studios’ new Real Things collection.
By pressing F1 you can see a sample animation taken from the Safari collection. This demo has been saved in the Anim. Format so you can easily load it into D-Paint III or IV and adapt it for your own use. At the top left of the animation the current frame number flashes past as each of the ten frames are played. If you want to incorporate the animation into your own creations, you'll first have to convert it into an anim.brush:
1. Load D-Paint and select Load from the Anim menu.
2. Insert the coverdisk and select the file called Zebra.anim,
then click on OK to load the animation.
3. Once the animation has loaded, select Pick Up from the Anim
Brush sub-menu.
4. Draw an outline around the Zebra starting from the top left
hand corner and extending to the bottom right of the screen.
You've now defined the anim.brush, so save it for future use via the Save option of the Anim Brush menu.
To demonstrate how powerful these anim.brushes can be, we'll create a 100 frame animation in which the zebra appears to canter into the distance:
1. Start by deleting the zebra animation LOADING YOUR DISKS Both
disks boot automatically from the internal drive. Disk 20
starts with a tune and a pic, followed by the menu screen.
When it's loaded, kill the tune by pressing the right mouse
button then press the function key of your choice to load a
program. To load Disk 21's programs just use the function
keys.
That you’ve just loaded, then go to the Anim menu and select Frames Set . When the requester appears type in 100 and press return.
2. Now load the anim.brush that you created earlier via the
Anim Anim Brush menu.
3. Position the anim.brush at the right- hand edge of the screen
so that the zebra’s snout is just touching the border, then
press the left mouse button once to paint it onto the screen.
4. Select the Move requester from the Anim menu and set the
X-Distance to 1000, and the Z-distance to -2000.
5. Ensure that Count is set to 100, the play direction is
forward, and that the method is set to Draw (the ball with an
arrow pointing to it).
6. Select Draw and the computer will automatically animate the
zebra.
There are two ways to add a background picture: you can either load one before you set the number of frames or draw one on the spare screen (accessed by pressing 'J', then picking the picture up as a brush and defining it as a fill pattern).
Incidentally, you'll notice that the zebra only uses eight colours from a possible palette of sixteen. This allows you to use the other colours for your own use. To make things easier still, the colours used by the zebra are all adjacent to each other in the palette.
If you require more than sixteen colours, set the required number from the Project Screen Format menu before you begin creating an animation. When you’ve loaded the anim.brush select ‘Project Colours From Brush' and the brush colours will be combined with your new palette.
As you can see, Real Things are incredibly versatile, and can help create impressive wild life animations. The zebra included here is just one of eleven different animals lovingly reproduced across eighteen animations on the Safari disks. Read the full review of Real Things Safari ana Sea Life on page 163 for further details.
SCREEN OF THE MONTH This month's winner hails from Sweden.
Mikael Raim’s superb 32-colour lo-res picture is appropriately titled, 'Dawn of the Gargoyle'. It's just one of several excellent illustrations Mikael sent us and for his efforts a one-year subscription is winging its way to him.
TUNE OF THE MONTH Nico Arianoutsos of Spain has come up with a truly inspirational tune. His seven minute masterpiece demonstrates that although sampled beats can enhance the sound of a tune, it's perfectly possible to create professional drum and melody tracks using single instruments. One of the most creative tunes we've heard in a while. Well done, Nico.
TUNING INTO SUCCESS For those of you thinking about entering a copmposition for out Tune of the Month spot, here are some simple guidelines to help increase your chances of winning:
1. Try to keep tunes below 100k in size.
2. Only tunes submitted as modules will be considered.
3. If you’re going to use an obscure music package, please
include the module player as well as your tune.
4. Don't try putting clever loaders on your disks. I load
everything into a single module player when judging the tunes,
and non-Dos disks get ignored straight away.
5. Let's have some entries which aren't house or acid music. What
about classical or good ol' Rock 'n' Roll?
6. Don’t rename all of your instruments so that they spell out
messages or addresses etc. I like to know what you're working
with so that I can assess how well you've done.
Also, please write your name and address in capitals on each disk. You'd be surprised at how many people forget to do such ? Simple thing.
POWERPACKER 2.3B When disk space is tight, Powerpacker helps squeeze on fhose few extra bytes of information. It performs special compression algorithms on any files, and can reduce their size by up to 50%. There are full documents on the disk, but here's a few tips to get you started: Powerpacker is capable of compressing two types of file: executable runnable programs and data files. Executable programs are those which load by simply typing their name from CLI, and includes things such as most C directory commands, D-Painletc. Data files are simply lists of binary data such as D-Paint
screens, word processor saves etc. Before you can compress a file you must tell Powerpacker which type you’re trying to crunch. This is done via the Prefs menu, where you can specify Command or Data File.
Also in the Prefs menu is the Efficiency option where you can specify how much compression Powerpacker attempts to generate. Although Best results in the highest compression rates, it also takes the longest time to perform.
For most purposes, this is all you'll need to know. Just load a file and it will automatically be compressed. When it's finished processing a file, Powerpacker states how much compression it’s achieved. If you're satisfied, you can save the file, which automatically has the characters .pp added to the end of the file name.
Powerpacker can also be used for decompressing files which have already been processed previously. Many of the menu options will be of little interest to casual users, but they are fully explained in the documents which can be accessed via the Cover disk docs menu (F9).
FEE ¦ LONGSAMPLE This easy to use program enables the user to create an auto-booting disk, complete with two-colour intro picture, which plays consecutive samples straight from disk.
Furthermore, it plays them so quickly after each other, that they can appear to be one continuous tune if they're sampled carefully enough.
All you need is a selection of samples, a blank, formatted disk and a two-colour intro screen (lo-res). Once Longsample has loaded, select 'Write Boot Own Boot' from the Disk menu. At the file-name prompt type LSBoot and press return. After a few moments the boot will have loaded and you'll be prompted to insert your blank disk. If you’ve correctly followed the on-screen prompts, the boot will be installed on your disk.
Select ‘Write Graphics' from the Disk menu. This will write the picture to your sample disk.
All that remains is to add the samples themselves, which is done by selecting 'Write Samples’ from the Disk menu. This time you'll be prompted to enter the name of a sample, which will be loaded into memory.
The computer will continue to request sample names until it has enough to write to the disk. This may take some time so be prepared! Once it has enough samples, it’ll request your demo disk to write the samples onto. If there’s still space left on the disk, it may return to the sample loading stage, where you'll be prompted for yet more sample names until the disk is full.
Once all of the samples are on the disk, it's ready. Just reset your Amiga, insert the disk and it should play all of the samples for you. Incidentally, Longsample can only handle samples which are tuned to middle C, or have a period of 428. Read the documentation for more details.
CRYPTATOR cbvUHXSKS If you have ambitions to be a spy, or simply have data which you need to keep from prying eyes, CryptatoTs for you. It encrypts any file you care to give it, in such a way that it can only be decoded using the password that you define.
It’s simplicity itself to use: type C then Return to code a file. At the prompts enter the name of the file to encrypt, the code word to use, and the name that you want the file saved under. Cryplatorm l do the rest. To decode a file, you follow exactly the same procedure. Cryptatorautomatically detects if a file is encrypted or not.
RETCHA-SKETCH This just-for-fun program takes you back to the days when loon pants were all the rage, you could still win a Gonk at the fair and everyone owned an Etch-a-sketch board.
This tribute to those heady bygone days faithfully reproduces the Etch-a-sketch machine which was so popular. Simply press fire to begin, then, using the joystick, draw to your heart’s content. It may seem primitive, but it's ideal for younger children and, don’t forget, you're reliving history! Incidentally, once the screen becomes too messy, pressing fire will clean it up for you. You don't have to shake the monitor!
KEYMAP ED Some time ago a utility called Setkeyms released which allowed the user to define their own keymaps for use in menus or programs. Unfortunately, the program had one major bug which defeated a lot of users.
Keymap is an updated program which performs the same function, minus the bugs!
As you load up, a requester appears which offers the user the opportunity to load a keymap. If you select GB, you’ll have the opportunity to see the keymap used for the Coverdisk menu. Once it's loaded, you’ll be presented with a picture representing the keyboard. If you're using a European Amiga, you should immediately set the keyboard to reflect this via the Layout menu.
By clicking on the F1 key on the screen, a box appears showing the current definitions for that key. Under the section headed ' 'Alone’ you'll see the following: cls rppanim x20zebra.anim r This is the command sequence used to load and animate the Real Things Zebra. If you were to type the same command from CU it would look like this: CLS return ppanim Zebra.anim return Two special character sequences are used in the key definition; r which is equivalent to pressing return, and x20 which is equivilent to pressing space.
Once a keymap is defined, it should be saved in the Devs Keymaps directory from where it can be activated with the command setmap xxx. (xxx is the name given to the keymap). There are full documents on the disk, and you’re advised to read them before you attempt to create too many keymaps.
FONTS The final tools on the disk are twelve superb fonts which can be used with any graphics package.
They’re located in the Fonts directory, and can be accessed directly with D-Paint III and IV. If your art package doesn’t allow you to load additional fonts, simply go into CLI before you load your package and type Assign Fonts: CU241 fonts. When you proceed to load the package, it should automatically request the CU coverdisk for all of its fonts.

Hristmas may well be over lor another year, but there is one more celebration left betore the new year takes hold. One more celebration, that is, tor Amiga owners as their numbers pass the one million mark in the UK, and 1992 is set to be a magical year tor the Amiga. Most ot this magic will stem trom hard work which went into-last year, which saw major landmarks established: the launch ot the Amiga CD-TV, the new Amiga 500P, and the Amiga's unquestioned dominance ot the home computer market.
OPEN LETTER It’s not often that CU Amiga gives its dearly beloved pages to guest writers - but what better way to see in the New Year, and the sale of 80, 000 new Amigas than an address by Commodore MD, Steve Franklin?
The most tangible proof of this dominance lies with the Christmas poll of titty top independent computer retailers. When asked what they thought would be the biggest selling computer this Christmas, an astonishing 96% replied in favour ot the Amiga - the remaining 4% plumped tor the C64. All this success means more choice for Amiga owners, more software, peripherals, sales outlets, and innovation. Already established as the first choice for publishers, Amiga titles will continue to be brought to market first, benefiting trom development on and for the Amiga. These developments will then
be passed on - as witnessed by the introduction of the A500P in October last year. As the first major revision of the Operating System for three years, the speculation over incompatible software has proved totally unfounded.
All major software publishers endorse the new format, and have been developing software for the new machine for the past 18 months. In fact, the only people to have been 'less than impressed' with the new Amiga were those with stocks of delisted and old budget games on their hands. No compatibility problems exist with either current or future releases; indeed virtually all full-price software available now is fully supported - but if you have any doubts then check with your dealer first. The benefits of the new OS have been well-documented in magazines such as CU Amiga. In essence, the key
benefits are in better display resolution and the improved productivity users can expect.
The reasons these issues are important lies in the way the Amiga is now used.
Professionally, Amigas are pioneering the market for multimedia, and are becoming accepted as a high quality workstation, setting the standards for professional music and video production for some years to come. Clearly, the Amiga is not a toy.
We're proud that it is universally heralded as the best games computer - but that's only where the story starts. Some PC analysts have long dismissed the Amiga - but now with Workbench 2.0, the Amiga stands favourably on its own against any other rival PC. Similarly, the strength of the Amiga in the home has a major role to play in education. Schools and colleges in Britain and around the world appreciate that the Amiga is the computer that is most commonly used in homes, and is the computer pupils and students most want to own.. In fact, the analysts who once JL This newly-launched system
offers an amazing option for users to actually remove drums, guitars or keyboards from records so you can ‘play along with the band'. This, and this and the ability to play games with CD-quality sound is an incredible achievement. With other areas, such as the Guinness Book Of Records and Trivial Pursuit greatly expanded for the CD medium, followed by another 200 titles - perhaps now you can see why 1992 will be a magical year for the Amiga.
Many thanks to Steve tor his personal opinions. Any comments should be posted to oor letters page, Backchat.
We will happily forward mail on lo Commodore UK.
W which is exactly what the Amiga first promised in 1985 when it was launched by Andy Warhol and Blondie's Debbie Harry.
The CD-TV removes the limitations of the computer: a single CD offers the equivalent of over 700 floppy disks - enough information to hold the entire UK telephone directory. Imagine what the world's leading software developers are creating now the barrier of floppy disks has gone.
All this is with a player that lives quite comfortably under the television, and has a remote control with fewer buttons than the average TV set. What’s more, this media is also to be available for all Amiga 500 owners with the A690 CD-ROM drive. Not only does the A690 transform the Amiga into the ultimate games platform, but it also transforms the way in which the technology can be used. Additionally, as a standard CD player, the CD-TV and the A690 not only play hifi quality music, but add graphics and other value. As record companies realise the medium can do both CD and GtCD, MIDI will
become commonplace, and I believe that the CD-TV will become the musician’s favourite - techniques, such as sampling will become much easier and MIDI In and Out lends itself to that marvellously.
Dismissed the Amiga now recognise Commodore's contribution in providing the most effective multimedia platform available today. As the multimedia market takes shape it is clear that the Amiga will have a leading role to play. No other computer matches its capabilities - video, sound, qraphics, photography, and database management are all placed at the fingertips of the user.
In developing applications and in using multimedia, the Amiga is at the forefront - position which was underlined when the CD-TV was launched to a packed and expectant audience in spring. Commodore have taken on the giants of electronics and won the battle to develop the world's first interactive multimedia player. Even for a company like Commodore, the CD-TV is radically new and exciting. Its potential exceeds any of our past innovations. With the PET in 1975, Commodore invented the PC, the VIC20 was the first colour home computer, and the C64 remains the world s most popular computer. The
CD-TV, though, is something rather different.
It is different because it can touch and change all our lives - whenever and whatever you do. Learning becomes fun and entertainment takes on a new dimension - ¦iern» OF OUR LIVES last i men' simp Publ Amip get f' used invol area offer impr been Minti els. 1 Aunt boun seem poiys s stuff, must 1991 promised to be a great year. Twenty-four- bit colour, god-sims such as Mega-lo-Mania... it sometimes seemed we were spoiled rotten - but what was hot and what - indeed - was rot?
ALL ABOARD! Tottenham won the F.A. Cup, Maggie Thatcher was booted out of number 10, Terry Waite was released after five years captivity and Ocean almost got Epic in the shops! Almost. All in all, things have never been better on the Amiga front with a consistent run of top class games and utilities filtering through every month. Anyone who saw last month’s CU Amiga can testify to that as no less than 12 awards were given for excellence. But as we all know opinions vary and what's one mans meat is another man's suicidal software from hell. There are some things, however, that you just can’t
argue about... IN-SPEC-TION If there's one thing that can be said tor the Amiga in 1990. It's that it came into its own. Alter dithering with the ST in the mid-price bracket, it shook off Atari's competition by making the break everyone wanted it to do. By making 1 Mb of memory a standard, Commodore pleased virtually everyone who has anything to do with the machines.
Game and hardware manufacturers had more to play with, and as a result the machine moved up trom its superior 16-bit position to the industry standard, with its technical and software support expanding across a wider range. As a result, the serious software scene has expanded ten-fold,with a number of high quality and sophisticated packages now available for virtually any application.
ABOUT TIME TOO At long last, seriously hot coders are writing some really creative stuff for the machine. The two worlds of music and graphics have been blessed witlr software that would convert the most dedicated IBM groupie over to the Amiga. The expanding Amiga user base has been the major catalyst for all this development, but technological advances have also brought the cost of it all down. A few years back even basic Genlocks would have cost about three times as much as they are now. In fact its in the area of Video and 'True- Colour' graphics that some of the most impressive changes
have occurred. All this is good news for the Amiga's entry and position in the professional broadcast and video world.
Amigas equipped with 24-bit colour cards are being used by TV stations in every country of the world, especially in the Third World and Middle East where their cost effectivness have fended off the competition from the Apple Mac and IBM video solutions.
ON TV On the domestic side, we have all seen Catch Phrase and the Chart Show's innovative use of real-time Amiga graphics. Also, the last year or so has seen a dramatic improvement in the music scene. The software has simply got better (especially within the busy Public Domain network) and will ensure that the Amiga will prove itself as the number one gadget tor the musician, who hitherto may have used an ST. For anybody wishing to really get involved with some major stuff in the creative area of computing, the Amiga has never before offered such viability. Only a while back, an
impressive graphical demonstration might have been a half meg Amiga and a copy of Jeff Minters Trip A Tron pumping out coloured pixels. Today, you can map a portrait of your Auntie Glenys on to an animated sphere whilst bouncing it around the screen over moving scenery composed of a million-and-one fractal polygons!
So you see, if you are new to all this Amiga stuff, then you haven't missed out. But you must be ready for the ride of a lifetime.
WHO S A CLEVER BOY, THEN? Thelasttwelvemonthshasseenmasslveadvances In the realms of the Thinking man’s’ game. With Eye Ot The Beholder, Knlghtmare and Populous II attaining classic status almost immediately, why have these games suddenly taken off? ‘Basically, it’s because of their flexibility,’ offers Bullfrog's head honcho, Peter Molyneux. 'Whereas In a shoot 'em up the player can only control one set of actions then decide whether they can make It to the next stage, In a game like Utopia or Mega-Lo-Manla, the game can exist without the player, offering a number ol other play alterna
tives. This expanded game task can then offer the player challenges they may not expect,’ he continues, 'and we used this concept as much as possible in Populous II. For instance, throughout Populous II the player can win using a number of Ideas, whether they want to destroy their way to victory, or attain it relatively peacefully. It’s almost certainly the open endings the game leaves that make them a success.'
Another argument is that these games offer far better value lor the punter’s money than coln-op licences or the latest game-of-the-tilm. 'Yes,' agrees Molyneux, when we put a game together, we want the person who’s paying out the thirty quid to get good value for money. Personally, I think that games are bloody expensive but I can appreciate that the development costs behind each release can bump up the price.
However, by cramming as much Into our stuff as possible, we like to think that we make ours a worthy buy.
It certainly beats adding another puzxle section just to boost the number of levels In It.’ PASS THE PORT-OVER... On the whole, 1991 was quite a good year for Amiga game players, too, and the plague of games copied directly from the inferior Atari ST that made up the bulk of 1990's releases have now pretty much dried up, paving the way for games such as Heimdalland Z-Out which are written on the Amiga to make the most of the machine's many capabilities. However, there still seems to be a tendency to concentrate on the look of the game rather than the playability, and after a few breaks with
this tradition in the shape of M.U.D.S, Car-Vup and Rodland, we seem to have got stuck in a fresh rut of film and coin-op licences again. Let’s just hope that potentially hot licences as The Addams Family and Batman Iiaren't wasted. One of the most exciting prospects of the last year, though, was the release and announcement of several old classics from dead and buried computers making their Amiga debut. Head Over Heels was the perfect example of this, and there are still dozens of games resting in Ocean’s, U.S. Gold's and assorted other software houses’ back catalogues that are just ripe
for plundering.
SIM CITY One of the most memorable games was Speedball which, in our book, is the best thing to hail from development team, The Bitmaps Brothers' stable. It took the the first Speedball and expanded it in every conceivable area, yet didn’t lose an ounce of its playability - in fact, it even expanded upon that, too. Next up, is another sports affair, too, with Archer Maclean's brilliant Jimmy While's Snooker. This is just so playable it's incredible.
Shoot 'em up fans were kept happy, too,with three superb blasters, namely SWIV, Turrican II and Z-Oul. The vertically-scrolling SWIVms the unofficial sequel to Silkworm and used the same load-as-you-go system for uninterrupted blasting. Z-Out was the super-fast follow-up to Rainbow Arts’ X-Oul and the German company also managed to improve the original Turrican for more alien-slaying mayhem. Originality, was another innovation we weren't used to seeing, but Psygnosis' Lemmings proved to be a worldwide hit combining cute graphics, an easy-to-use control system, and enough addic- tivity to
keep even the most avid puzzle and strategy fans happy.
In all, '91 was quite a good year for games, even if we'd like to have seen just a few more BUT SERIOUSLY... TECH ED, MAT BROOMFIELD REVIEWS HIS FAVOURITE PRODUCTS OF THE LAST YEAR.
Colorburst: Tills graphics board finally brings true 24- blt graphics within the reach of non-millionaires!
Costing £599, it's half the price ol Its nearest rivals.
It’s just a pity the software isn’t better.
Octamed 2.0: A dream come true, at a mere tenner, (Warned Is one ot my all-time favourite pieces ot software. Nol only does it give the music programmer unparalleled power, It even works with MIDI.
Professional Page 2.0 2.1: A really powerful and easy lo to use DTP package which lets anyone create professional results at home. Fun to use, and especially recommended.
Vista Pro: The most Impressive fractal landscape program available, Vista Pro allows the Importing of real digital elevation maps so that genuine landscapes can be modelled. The Inclusion ol automated animation and 24-bit colour support keeps this package head and shoulders above the rest.
A500P: Despite the compatibility turore, the A500P is the easiest way of getting a machine that runs Kickstart and Workbench 2.0. Although of little Interest lo gamers, the new interlace enhances every other operation.
The Miracle: This great-sounding keyboard allows even the absolute novice to learn to play like a professional. With It’s artificial intelligence, It can adapt the lessons to your own proficiency level. It's built-in MIDI capability means that it can be used as a professional instrument between lessons.
DVP Series 2 HD8 Hard Drive: Even amidst the multitude ol Hard Drives released this year, the Series 2 stands well above the rest. Easy to use and install, It allows up to 8Mb ol extra RAM to be added and runs so last you'll eipecl to hear a sonic boom!
Dpalnt IV: Electronic Arts continued the Bpaint saga with this HAM-supporting addition. As well as supporting HAM, though, it also gave the user a multitude of new till types, a more flexible palette, and numerous new manipulation tools. Quite simply the ultimate In art packages.
Exceptional examples. Nevertheless, the sheer number of Screenstars we carry each month is surely a good sign, even if it's been difficult to spot the new Rainbow Island or even Kick OH 27 Still, here's to your health, and there's always Kick Off 3 to look forward to. And as for the so-called 'thinking games', such as Populous 2 and Eye of the Beholder, that particular genre has had an amazing past year____ The best is yet to come, however, and in 1992 we can continue to expect the very best in games, graphics, video, sound and peripherals. CU dusts down its crystal ball and makes a few
predictions as to next year's big events... THE FUTURE NOW SENSIBLE SOCCER ¦ Mirrorsoft.
With Wizkid almost out the door, Sensible Software are set to return to the genre that they revolutionised back in 1988. After proving their diversity with the likes of 3D Tennis for Palace and Mirrorsoft's Mega-Lo-Mania, Jon Hare and Chris Yates are now working on a Footy game which they hope will punt Anco's Kick Off into orbit.
The game uses the favoured overhead view, with the players kept deliberately tiny to optimise more animation frames for less memory. In addition, Jon and Chris have created an 'intelligent' control method, where players behave and shoot depending on their proximity to the ball. Also, a 'form' option has been included where a player’s attributes are changed depending on how well they fared in past games. With other ideas, such as a transfer market still to be added, it’ll be a while before Sensi complete the game for Mirrorsoft, but expect it within the first quarter of next year.
A' THE PC THREAT mat broomfield debates the ever-present rivalry BETWEEN THE AMIGA AND THE MANY PCS ON THE MARKET.
With the ST slowly breathing its last, the only real rival to the Amiga in 1992 is the ever-growing PC range. There are also several nasty stories ol people perhaps abandoning the Amiga over the next year or so in lavour ot the PC - so is there anything to worry about? In all lairness, no. Whilst the PC is a very capable machine, before it can rival the Amiga in terms of graphical prowess and speed, it must be expanded by purchasing the relevant boards. Even then, the Pcs can only keep up with the Amiga rather than surpass It. The main reason lor the PC series' success is that IBM were quite
simply there first. From this early beginnings, they went on to build up their present massive user-base which makes the Amiga's world wide user-base ol 3 million look a bit wee. However, since the Amiga only really started taking oft last year, that's not as small as it may seem.
When you buy an Amiga, everything you need to get started is there. The sound and graphic boards are there, the processor is last enough to handle the most troublesome ol data, none ol which can be said ol the PC - not II you intend to stay in the same price range, that is. In addition, the Amiga's software support is rapidly becoming more adaptable and varied than the PC counterparts, with Commodore's machine moving into the business market with ease. Software also pushes the Amiga's hardware further than ever, with the new Super am package a perfect example.
This little package allows the user to use the Amiga's lour channel sound with as many samples as their memory can handle - try doing that on the PCI Basically, there is nothing to be worried about. Yes, both machines will be around in live years.
But guess which one will have the most exciting software and hardware developments. I'll give you a clue: it begins with the letter 'A'... PARASOL STARS
- OCEAN.
Converted from the PC Engine original, Parasol Stars sees the welcome return ol those dungaree-clad heroes, Bub and Bob fresh from their adventures in Bubble Bobble and Rainbow Islands.
The game draws its title from the pairs’ unusual weaponry.
Whereas Rainbow Islands saw them throwing Rainbows all over the show, in Parasol Stars they are armed with tiny parasol umbrellas with which they can gather objects or nasties and lob them across the screen. For instance, by collecting five or more raindrops on their ‘brollies', Bub or Bob will be armed with a massive drip which, when released, will kill everything in its path.

Kets. There are two ways to do this: you can run your business properly, by head-hunting and developing; or you can play dirty and kidnap people's families to make them work for you, or send specially-bred mercenaries to steal the all-important blueprints. In all, Bob contains 115 countries, within which there are 32 towns, creating a massive play area in the process. There’s still a lot to do before its hopeful Summer release, but Bob looks like another winner for Bullfrog and EA.
PAPERBOY II
- MINDSCAPE.
Atari's delivery boy won a legion of fans in his arcade debut and subsequent conversions, and Paperboy II takes the basic idea one step further. Whereas the first game limited our hero to a oneway scrolling play area, the sequel allows the player to choose one of three routes and make his deliveries along that.
Development is primarily on the Famicon at the moment, but the Amiga version is already looking up to the stanoped by Ocean’s in-house team, and is currently over 60% complete, so expect further news within the next couple of issues.
BOB
- EA BULLFROG.
Fresh from the success of Populous II, Bullfrog are currently working on another isometric affair called Bob.
However, for those of you expecting another Powemonger or Populous, then you're in for a shock. Once again, Bullfrog are giving the player control over events within the game, but this time the emphasis is on the worlds of big business.
As one of a series of manufacturers of mind-co-ordinating silicon chips, you must ensure that you are the fastest- growing company, with continual new developments and ever-growing marTHE FUTURE NOW FUTURE TENSE... MAT BROOMFIELD LOOKS FORWARD TO AN EXCITING NEW YEAR... If one thing is almost certain this year, it’s that Amiga-related prices are set to take a tumble. With Commodore currently working on more compact circuit boards, the price for further expansion boards and accelerator boards should fall as well, making the Amiga even better value for money. In addition, by the end of the
year, I’d expect the CD-TV unit to be reduced to the C399 mark, especially with the imminent release of Commodore's dedicated CD-ROM drive. Other drives should start to appear soon, too, making them more affordable for the home user, and if the likes of Ocean and U.S. Gold aren’t already working on titles (rumour has it that U.S. G are currently thinking of releasing Kev Bulmer’s Legend Ot Valour on the CD format) then by the end of next year they almost certainly will be. After all, this could be the end of piracy as we know it if CD takes of*.
With Mindscape's Miracle keyboard paving the way, the Amiga music scene is about to take off in a big, big way. Up until now, the ST's T-Base has reigned supreme, but two Amiga packages - Dr Ts KCS and XOR - are set to knock the spots oft this and any other competitors. Similarly, although I doubt that Dpaint IV will be surpassed I have a feeling that several HAM-specialist graphics packages may hit the market, offering faster use of this multi-colour mode. Also, it's about time an affordable Amiga Video Editing package hit the streets, but the aforementioned price reductions should speed
this along. Let's hope so.
As far as the computer itself goes, there's plenty of speculation regarding an A4000 or a console-based Amiga, but there's nothing concrete. If Commodore do produce an A4000 it will be aimed at the higher end of the market at the high-end PC-owning fringe perhaps. The console on the other hand is a quite exciting idea, but only if Commodore improve on the Amiga's hardware to make a machine that can run Amiga games but take even more advanced cartridges - another way to end to piracy. If Commodore do this, then they should be able to take on the likes of the Famicom or the Megadrive, both of
which have specialist sprite enlarging and scrolling chips. PC fanatics are predicting that the introduction of consoles will consign the Amiga to an education-only role. The answer to them is obvious: at the end of '92 you will still have in the Amiga the best multi- media tool, the best music, tool, the best machine for programming and graphics, and, most certainly, the best machine for games.
Dard of the console version. Unlike the first game, newspaper subscribers now line both sides of the street, with the player tossing the papers either way. Failure to keep a set number of clients prematurely ends the game, as does the aforementioned loss of life, but if a round is pulled off then a bonus section awaits you. Keep this up for a week, and you'll be suitably rewarded. Expect a review of this much- awaited sequel some time in February.
• mi m aii* With the Amiga gaining popularity all the time, HELL
FAN CU has been there every step of the way. What’s more, our
growth has paralleled that of the Amiga, too.
| elieve it or not, CU is actually | reaching its 12th year in exis- ’ tence. It started life as the pamphlet-like VIC Computing in January
1981. Covering Commodore's 3.5K baby, the magazine consisted of
reviews, news and type-in listings for programs that rarely
worked properly.
Come 1983, the VIC was dead on its feet, so Commodore User was born to expand the magazine’s coverage to include the new C64 and its games.
However, something had to go and on dropping the VIC20 coverage, there was a public outcry by doomed VIC owners.
Bi ti In 1984, EMAP took over publication of the mag, and with its only rival, Newsfield's Zzap! 64 going from strength to strength, the first Amiga coverage was seen in the-September.1985 issue. However, by October 1987, things had started to change, and Commodore User now sporting a sixteen-page Amiga reviews supplement which expanded until the mag became CU Amiga C64 in Feb '88, but more outcry was to follow a year later when the C64 half was dropped and the magazine became the CU Amiga we know today. With another revamp following in October 1990, it wasn't until June last year that
we made the break and became the 'complete' guide to the Amiga, with our expanded pages including reviews of serious products, as well as the definitive games coverage.
Since then, and without blowing our own trumpet too hard, we've been the first to cover the likes of Dpaint IV, the CD-TV, and the possibility of an Amiga cartridge (which may see the light in the mythical A300 console system), and by buying the magazine you have helped our sales expand so greatly that we even topped Media Week's (a trade magazine covering publishing houses) top twenty for year-on-year growth - with CU's 88% growth beating the likes of The Clothes Show Magazine and Smash Hit’s sister publication, Big. And who said that computers were a flash in the pan? In addition, we are now
aiming to aid the Amiga's development with ideas, such as our 'Design An Add-On’ feature, and we are often asked to give early impressions of forthcoming games for any faults they may have. Proving that, as we promised, CU Amiga is at the forefront of the Amiga world.
Cu In *91 and '89.
Recent trends indicate that computing may now be as popular as music COMPETITION Steve James: Steve joined CU as Deputy Editor in January 1989 before eventually progressing to take the reigns a year after. A jovial fellow, Steve likes nothing better than relaxing with pints of Cider and the odd libelous anecdote.
Dan Slingsby: Deputy Dan joined the team in April 1990, and spends most of his time editing our Screen Scene review section, proofing hundreds of pages and perusing the hundreds of PD demos we receive each month.
However, he still manages time to squeeze in the odd game-playing session and stuffing his face with chicken kebabs.
Steve Merrett: Steve moved over from editing Amiga Action in November 1990, and became our Editorial Consultant. A massive games fan, Steve is responsible for our In Devs and First Impressions features and can often be found idling away with a game of Kick Off II or Jimmy White’s Snooker.
Mat Broomfield: Mat's fave pastime is stuffing his face with E-numbers, whilst ogling the latest technical advancement. However, he’s also a keen gamer who enjoys the more cerebral delights of Eye Of The Beholder and the like.
Steve Keen: The third Steve has been with us for the last two issues, and joined us from our sister publication, Sinclair User. Our avid Staff Writer is a fan of all things trivial, and when he's not messing around with gadgets and toys he often finds time for a game of Monkey Island.

Steve ‘Mince Spy’ Merrett spoke to Readysoft about their attempt to bridge the gap... IN DEVELOPMENT 'Actually, I think that some of the flak we've taken regarding the laser disk conversions is a little unjustified,' comments Readysoft's project leader, David Foster. ‘After all, when you play a Dragon 's Lair or Space
Ace coin-op, you know what you're getting, so why be surprised when the computer conversion is the same?' Was such criticism the main reason for the advent of Guy Spy, the first supposedly fully-inter- active game to emerge from their Canadian base? 'Yes, we've already made a name for ourselves for quality animation, and we wanted to try to combine this with a completely playable game. Hopefully, we’ll silence a few critics along the way.'
Consequently, Guy Spy is the latest hero to emerge from a country known for its rugged Lumberjacks, square-jawed Mounties, and butch Ice Hockey players, and PLAYABILITY PLOY Readysoft are claiming that it will bridge the gap between full playability and their famed graphical finesse. They don’t, however, consider that Guy is the furthest they can take the system.
'Although we consider it as a large step forward, we have to admit that the system isn’t totally interactive,' Foster concedes, 'but, nevertheless, it is a remarkable advance considering we aren't using CD-ROM technology.’ Will it be another 'move at the right time' job then? 'No, definitely not. We've now got longer, more playable stages based on a series of game styles and played within a series of linked sequences rather than nonsensical interludes.’ Guy himself is a marked departure from such reluctant cowardly heroes as Dexter and Dirk The Daring, and is Readysoft's equivalent to James
Bond, with deliberate Indiana Jones-style overtones. Typically, in a scenario worthy of both heroes, an evil Germanic tycoon, Von Max, is currently scouring the world in search of a series of crystals which will power the Doomsday Weapon he has had built. Before the evil genius can hold the world to ransom, Guy has been sent to thwart his plans, but Von Max is on to him and has left a series of henchmen to thwart his plans.
Thus, over fifteen action-packed stages and a number of game styles, Guy must battle his way across Europe in search of the elusive master criminal. ‘We came up with the idea during one of our planning meetings,' Foster recounts, 'and a group of seven or eight of us basically created the character and built the plot up from there. It was here that we decided on how to tackle the playability problem, so we started a few sketches and took it from there.' Did combining a more flexible hero cause problems with the detail and size of the sprites. 'It's certainly SKETCHY DETAILS Sullivan Bluth

More memory intensive, but we had allowed for it when we put the storyboard together, so it was basically just a matter of making sure that the action flowed well.’ Just how controllable is Guy? 'Depending on the scene, the player can control him using whatever options are relevant during each scene.
For instance, in a fight scene, he can perform all the usual punches, rolls and dodges, whilst he can also take aim and pick off Von Max’s cronies in a shootout.'
'We've made a point of making the action instinctive and easy to control,' he continues,' and we’d like to think that the player will be able to manipulate the joystick to make Guy move in the way they imagine he should.’ So, has combining more interactive sprites with their Disney-style backdrops meant that Guy isn't as varied as, say, Space Ace, in terms of the number of scenes within the game? 'It's not really fair to compare them,' says Foster. ‘Yes, we have reduced the number of screens that Lair and Ace had, but most of the screens in those games were only on screen for mere seconds
anyway. In Guy, things take place on a series of screens, and continue until the player wins through.
However, to keep the feeling of an interactive cartoon, we've retained key animated linking sequences to update the plot, so Guy will enter a chalet or a cable car ready for the next stage, or will square up to an opponent, for instance.'
In keeping with Ihe cinematic leel ot peel Readysoft games, each level is preceded by a scene-set g sequence, with Guy arriving at each stage only to run Into the trouble awaiting him there.
- 1 How long do the graphics take to prepare for such a large
game? ‘Well, it varies: we've been working on Guy since
January, but we didn't get anything on screen until March. Our
team is made up of an Amiga coder and a trio of graphic artists
who handle the conversion from paper sketches to onscreen
reality; What problems have they had? 'Our main one has been
incorporating the improved gameplay, " but luckily this was
solved fairly early on in development, so now we’re just slot
ting the graphics in as they're needed. It still took longer
than we expected, though; The Readysoft process is a fairly

«• * --screen GENESIS OF A HERO Wtth the basic idea for each
scene prepared and sketched beforehand on paper, one o, Ihe
trie graphic artists digitises the sketch which is then saved
as an IFF tile and loaded into Dpaint. A second artist will
then go about touching up the scanned picture, by outlining the
faint lines and adding selected colours from the sixteen-colour
palette. Each scene takes roughly a day to complete, and the
sprites are developed simultaneously by the third artist.
These characters are then overlaid on to this screen and their
movements refined so that they don't look out of place within
the scene (le. Walk through walls). When all this is running
smoothly, any rough edges are smoothed and the completed scene
is saved to hard disk for later inclusion into the main game.
However, with graphics as intricate as Keadysoft s, there is a
price: the game will span six or more disks, although second
drives will be supported.

GUY SPY simple one considering the complexity and detail of their games. The 68000 coder writes the basic game routines on the Amiga for porting over to other machines such as the PC and Mac(l), whilst the three graphic artists work on backdrops and sprites between them.
The development sketches are digitised using Digiview and are then touched up using Dpainl, where further detail is added from the 16-colour palette. These are incorporated into the code a section at a time, and the freshly-designed sprites and game objects are then added to complete the stage. 'We’re currently using over 1500 frames of animation,' Foster continues, 'and creating each stage individually makes linking them together easier for when it comes to compressing the game down on to floppy: _I With 20-30 frames completed a day, work is steady but unhurried. However, the team are now
battling to condense the game down on to six floppies. Sound is always the last thing to be added to their games, and Readysoft are currently scouring Britain for someone to incorporate the game’s many effects and sound. 'We intend to have a movie-style tune running through the whole game, and will also feature assorted sound effects to tie in with the action. If all goes according to plan, as Guy punches and shoots, the sound reacts accordingly.' How pleased is he with its progress? 'I think we've covered a lot of ground with Guy, and although it's still not fully-interactive, it's far more
playable than anything we've done.’ And the future for Guy? Is there a sequel in the works or even Guy Spy: The Movie?
Wait and see,' Foster ends enigmatically... ON THE COMPETITION AND THE FUTURE So what does Foster think ot other peoples' attempts to combine superior graphics with playability - Core Design's Heimdall, for eiample? ‘I've only seen a tew screenshots and reviews,' he concedes, but it's flattering to see that our graphical style has obviously been the inspiration.' Does he think that the gap is being breached? 'Yes, all the time. It's going to take a while before we combine them perfectly, and I don’t think that it will be totally possible on the Amiga or ST.' Are they signing the Amiga's
death warrant as their development machine?
Not just yet, but we’re starting to look at the PC and its palette of 256 colours and it’s looking very inviting indeed. In addition, CD-ROM is tempting, but I don't think it'll really get going lor a while. It would be unwise to write off the Amiga just yet, though.’ SHADOWY GOINGS-ON .
In their first entry to the RPG genre, Domark and veteran development team, Teque, have joined forces to create the dark world of Shadowlands, where evil rules over the five-storey kingdom full of zombies, skeletons and other unworldly creatures.
The player is cast as a human whose Earthly form has been destroyed and his remaining bones scattered throughout the massive play area. Thus, recruiting four wanderers of the Shadowlands, the player must pit their new-found team’s wits against the many puzzles within the game arena.
One of Teque's main aims was to give the game a predominantly Japanese feel, and this is apparent from the very start. The game opens with a team selection screen, where the roundeyed looks and strength attributes of the four characters can be altered where necessary. Following this, the game switches to an isometric view to depict the detailed landscape and its many contents. Another priority on Teque's agenda was to make the game accessible to both the veteran RPG fan and the newcomer. Thus, the entire game, from movement to object selection and fighting, is controlled using the mouse,
and this simple system allows the player to perform virtually any feasible act on the game's many objects and locations. For instance, teleporters can be accessed and keys placed into specific locks with a quick press of the mouse button. This system is then used to piece together the many clues that stand between the team and the recovery of your bones.
In an attempt to capture the interest of the novice and casual RPG players, Teque have concentrated on making the massive adventure easy to play by limiting the controls to the mouse only. Thus, using a simple point'n’click method, virtually every avenue of exploration is immediately available, taking the frustration out of the many puzzles. Another factor is that the game utilises a technique which Domark have called Photoscape, which basically means that light in the world of Shadowlands behaves as it should, with torches gradually burning down and the corners of the dungeon gloomily lit.
Team leader, Dean Lester, is the cre- Mega-Teque One of the oldest development teams going, Teque have been responsible lor some ol the most ground-breaking games ever. Pete Harrap, lor Instance, was the man behind Gremlin's Monty Mole classics, and since then they have produced games for Domark, Krisalls and Ocean. As well as original products, Such as Manchester United and the European follow-up, they also produced the conversions of Escape From The Planet 01 The Robot Monsters, Chase HQ and Klat, and are currently beavering away on another football game for Krisalls.
Domark are set to enter the RPG arena with an adventure set in the Shadowlands. Steve ‘National Elf’ Merrett visited this strange world.
Ator of Shadowlands, and over the last year what started as a nice idea for an RPG has expanded far beyond his expectations. With the rest of the team made up of graphics man, Mark Anthony, and coder Barry Monk, between them they have taken ideas from games as diverse as the Ultima series and the SSI games, whilst ensuring that the ease of use remains. Due to the size of the project, though, the game is still months away from completion, with three of the five lands still to be implemented. Despite it being another new avenue for Putney-based Domark, they are confident that Shadowlands will
be another string to their bow and are hoping that their simplistic control system will breath new life into what can be a tired genre. We'll be able to see for ourselves when the game is finally released in March.

Children’s television: it's a wasteland of American cartoons, inane presenters, and Australian series - but who doesn't watch it when they've got a day off sick? One programme, though, will catch the eye of any role-playing enthusiast, and that's Knightmare, which uses computer imagery to transport hapless youths into a dungeon watched over by the mysterious Treguard.
Mindscape snapped up the license and now Tony 'Captive' Crowther's game reaches the shops just in time for Christmas.
Superficially this is a Dungeon Master-style game, with four characters, drawn from a selection of races and professions, exploring 3D dungeons whilst combatting monsters and overcoming puzzles and traps. The party tackles four quests - or underground complexes - in search of the Shield of Justice, Sword of Freedom, Cup of Life, and Crown of Glory, and can choose the order they approach the first three (although in all honesty the player must find the Shield to get the skills required for the others).
Treguard's image is everywhere, offering advice and giving a fix on the player's location - just in case they need to get help from Mindscape, a useful feature which others should adopt.
This is where the similarity to Dungeon Master ends: the game is much closer to Captive, or even Gremlin's excellent BSS Jane Seymour. Knightmare is pretty tough, and there are no ‘introductory levels'. All four sections of the game demand skill, forethought, and, most especially, careful management of resources.
My party came close to dying as I hadn't paid enough attention to their food levels - so make sure they have enough spider legs to munch $ $ & on. Health, Stamina and Magic are shown as bars near the character portraits, and they are depleted through movement and combat. Sleep recuperates lost points, and if a priest casts an REM spell they are recovered much faster.
Although the game itself Is complex, Knightmare sports an incredibly friendly point'n'click icon system____ The top-right hand set of icons represent characters, their stats and energy levels, and those below are directional.
LEVEL BEST As the characters progress they leam to improve their skills. Starting off a novice, moving through tenderfoot, adept, and up to master, they blossom into Gladiators, Priests, and so on. Practice makes perfect, so it’s a good idea to pass that magic wand around the party once in a while to give everyone the opportunity to increase levels. At first, only one or two options will he available: stabbing with a knife, tor example, or opening a door with a spell.
The puzzles are bizarre and typical of Crowther's weird sense of humour. Each Quest is guarded by a tree monster who demands an object before letting anyone pass. The first request - for the tree’s child to be returned
- stumped (no pun intended) me for a while, until I remembered
the twig I'd found earlier! Finding objects is far from easy.
Because of the block of four. This is very handy when checking
for overburdened or injured characters. The graphics are, on
the whole, attractive and full of original touches, like plant
pots on the walls and flooded passageways.
Sometimes the graphics are garish, but usually they're just right. I can foresee problems for those people playing on a TV and not a monitor: as I've mentioned, the writing and other details can be obscure, although thankfully the program includes a preferences option to change colours.
Nature of the graphics, some items are all-but-invisible against the background; but after a while your eye becomes trained to spot objects. I walked right past a key I was searching for at least three times before locating it.
As with Captive, the players' stats can be viewed individually or in a ScreexstaR This doesn't help disguise the numerous spelling mistakes - ‘enterance’ instead of ‘entrance' and 'sandles' instead of ‘sandals' were two I discovered.
One of my favourite parts of the game is the novel use of transport. The players whizz around in a mining cart at the beginning and then row a small boat in shark infested waters. Unlike Dungeon Master and its derivatives, Knightmare's monsters use some intelligence. If you run off and cower behind a door, don't expect the goblins or whatever to wait around forever, as they’re likely to wander off ¦ ' •

plenty of opportunities for the role-player to engage in
traditional character generation.
81% and hide, launching a devastating attack when you least expect it. One of the best ways to reduce risks is to follow the manual's advice to use either headphones or a hi-fi link to bring out the best of the genuinely impressive sound - the stereo effect allows you to trace monsters very simply by following the sound of their footsteps.
Ultimately the game leads to a confrontation with the FrightKnight and his boss Lord Fear - a fight to daunt even the toughest of adventurers. Knighlmare's innovative combat spell system succeeds, mainly because each character can be ‘programmed’ to perform certain tasks with a single click of the mouse, and this MUSIC TO MY EARS When creating the music and effects, Mindscape travelled to Anglia Television in deepest, darkest Norfolk, In order to make use of their audio department. Although more than half-a-meg is needed to get the best out of the game (along with headphones or con
nection to a stereo as described elsewhere), even through a mono speaker the results are fabulous.
Invest in some extra memory (owners of the 500 Plus will be pleased to know it's fully compatible) and a stereo lead - you'll be surprised at the difference in atmosphere.
RABBITS FROM HELL In the forest that marks the beginning to the quests, cute bunnies are seen frolicking In the meadows. Don't be deceived - these buggers are vicious. Hack away at them whenever possible, as you're rewarded with a rabbit pie. Later on, when the party comes back wearied from its Quest, you might find that the rabbits have been up to their usual habits and that the whole place will be crawling with them. So lob some holy hand grenades to get rid of them, and make Monty Python proud.
KNIGHT MARK A -- - Run, rabbit, run ... or you might end up in a pie! When players feel peckish they can shoot these cuddly-looklng but not-so-harmless bunnies.

A game this huge has secrets that even an in-depth review won't yield. And the fact that I'll keep playing it until I finish it speaks volumes.
I love this game. It's taxing, whimsical and, unlike most RPGs, it actually has a sense of humour. I wonder whether the use of the TV name is so wise, though?
Most kids will find this too complicated and, let's be honest, not remotely like the TV series at all. The manual contains a poster of the actor who plays Treguard (I can't wait to put that up on my wall!!) And an invitation to join the Knightmare Adventurers Club. Whatever the case, I'm thrilled with Knightmare; and you will be too. One of those games you just cannot put down.
Mat Regan CAPTIVE AUDIENCE Captive, Tony Crowther's previous venture into RPGs, topped the charts and was also voted Adventure Game of the Year in 1990. Set In the far future, the task Is to guide robots through worlds with the aid of a portable super-computer. While the catacombs in Captive were computer-generated, Knighlmare’s dungeons were designed by hand, making the overall design much smoother.

TELEPHONE: 061 832 6633 • FAX: 061 8346 I don't know what it is about the Readysoft laser-disk conversions, but there's something strangely appealing about them. We all know what to expect in terms of the series’ minimal control over the character, but somehow they still offer a challenge that won't go away until the game has been completed.
So, as can be expected, all the usual criticisms of the games can also be levied at this new addition to the family. However, due to what appears to be scrimping on Readysoft's part, somehow Borfs Revenge falls short of my already set expectations.
The scenario picks up straight from where the first game left off. Borf’s evil plan to reduce the age of everybody within the galaxy using his Infanto-Ray backfired when the heroic Dexter used a mirror to reflect the blast so that Borf himself was regressed. However, in the opening scenes of the sequel, Borfs cronies, the mischievous Goons, have reversed the polarity of the Infanto-Ray and given the blue giant a blast to revert him to normality. Thus, Dexter's girlfriend, Kimberly, is once again whisked away to Borfs lair whilst you're left to give the Goons the slip and make your way into
Borfs ship to rescue her.
Unlike the first game and, indeed, the others in the series, the most notable improvement in Space Ace II is that the game flows more smoothly and the scenes roll into each other perfectly.
Conversely, though, this exposes just how few scenes the game contains, with a mere three to four covering each of the package's six disks. Starting with Kimberly's abduction, Dexter is immediately set upon by Borfs Goon friends and it’s time to move the joystick at the right time to progress through the twenty-seven stages that stand between you and victory. There are five moves at your disposal, and clues to which will probably be the correct one are given by the positioning of exits and even the situations themselves - for instance, if Dexter is grabbed by a particularly hungry
monster, it's odds-on that drawing his laser is the perfect remedy. However, due to the limited number of moves, certain ones will have different effects and whilst pressing the firebutton during one scene will draw our weedy hero’s laser, in others it will activate the wrist-con- troller which temporarily boosts Dexter's weedy frame to that of his eponymous and beefier alter-ego, Space Ace.
As the correct moves are chosen, the action takes Dexter past ravenous creatures and robotic security systems and into Borfs space station, for a final stand-off under the deadly Infanto-Ray's machinery.
There’s not really a lot else to mention, as by now SBCEACEII lORP'S MV1N«I
- you’ll know what to expect.
However, whilst the ‘save’ and ‘load’ options are still mercifully present to avoid playing the same scenes repeatedly, Readysoft seem to have cut a few corners here and there. This is particularly notable in the sound department, where the game reuses all of the samples and effects from the first game.
Considering that all these game’s really have going for them is their presentation, this is a major faux-pas and the chance to add to the atmosphere has been completely wasted. Presumably, this is because Readysoft have created the game from scratch without the use of a coin-op for reference, but all the same it’s a bit of a swizz.
In addition, there are a few graphical rough edges, too, where a few more frames of animation might have been worthwhile.
So there you have it: the new Readysoft ‘masterpiece’.
Unless Super Don Quixote is on the cards, I have a feeling that they have milked this system as much as they can, and the advent of the supposedly more interactive Guy Spy seems to confirm this. If so, then it’s about time, as the system started waning after the novelty of Dragon's Lair wore off. Perhaps l’m being a little harsh as I did find Borf's Revenge initially appealing, but for fifty quid I feel that perhaps Borf's next adventure will see him abandoning the Infanto-Ray and spending the profits of his first two defeats on an island in the Bahamas. A sure-fire triumph for the evil
giant, methinks... Steve Merrett

SPORTS COVERING 21 EVENTS Jake Masters is one of those
Americans who provide a strong case against tourism. Loud,
self- confident to a ridiculous degree, and blessed with the
silly nickname of 'Lucky', Jake’s an adventurer, bankrupt
importer, and self- appointed hero. Finding himself in Hong
Kong in the 1930s with his Airborn Imports business
deliberately destroyed by E.A. Lomax, a hardened rival, the
former war ace decides to take up Lomax's 'offer' of a reward
to rescue his kidnapped daughter, Kate.
Kate is a do-gooder nurse, snatched from the hospital where she was tending sick children - naturally - by the evil henchmen of Li Deng, the area’s major crimelord.
Lucky's task revolves around freeing her from Deng's palace, but only recruiting the help of Zhao Chi, a local, Ninja. This is where Heart of China's major novelty feature comes into operation: the player switches between Lucky and Chi (and Kate, once she’s been rescued), because many of the situations within the game can only be solved by switching between the trio.
For instance, during a search for healing herbs, the shopkeeper, Madam Wu, is a xenophobe and refuses to sell them to Yankee Jake.
However, by switching to Chi to make the initial contact, any barriers will be broken and she’ll talk to him. Oddly for a supposed hero, though, Jake takes a backseat to the actions of Chi and Kate later in the game.
The first stop is Li Deng’s sinister Chengdu Fortress.
This comes as a slight disappointment as, after searching the building, with the exception of a few locations in the areas of Katmandu, Istanbul and the Orient Express, there’s very little to see. In addition, the lack of locations would be bearable if the puzzles offered any real challenge but, sadly, these are severely lacking, too. And this may leave some adventurers feeling short-changed.
To try to counter this, Dynamix have incorporated numerous ways of finishing the game, with a non-linear progression through it. Whenever the player makes a choice that takes him or her along an alternative path, a message pops up stating that you've decided to follow a particular plot branch. In truth, there are very few chances to make 'alternative' decisions, but the idea is a nice one and will hopefully be exploited further in Dynamix's next release.
As with the company's previous foray with this system, Rise of the Dragon, 1 HOC comes as a 1 Mb-only game spanning an astounding nine disks. Unfortunately, single-drive users will find themselves swapping disks like there's no tomorrow and this interrupts the flow of the game enormously. Even with a hard drive, access time is far from quick, but is a vast improvement nonetheless.
CHINA Playing the game is simplicity itself, as the interface is a joy to use.
All usable objects can be dragged around the screen, and icons at the bottom of the screen act as inventories. Clicking on Jake’s portrait brings up either a quick inventory - which is used for manipulating objects - or the main screen, which also includes a large shot of the character.
This allows you to wear items of clothing (important when infiltrating the palace) or activate weapons, and so on. This may limit the numbers of actions you can perform (even more so than Sierra's SCI interface) but, on the plus side, it makes playing the game considerably easier.
The period flavour of HOC is its strongest aspect, along with the Indiana Jones plot - although the pseudo-mystical and religious overtones are thankfully missing. Dialogue is a scream, and Lucky can't help winding up people with his 'Oh, yeah?' Attitude, while the usually silent Chi has a sardonic sense of humour.
If presentation is important to you, then this is the best adventure on the Amiga. The music, from dramatic scores to eastern tunes, sound superb when played through a stereo system, but my monitor fails to do it justice.
The graphical style works much better here than in Rise of the Dragon, and from the intro sequence to the finale the game is a wonder to behold. The price for all this though - in money, access time and disk-swapping - is hard to justify in my opinion.
Unless you’re a total newcomer to the genre, I'd think long and hard before spending the money on Heart of China.
Matt Regan GETTING IN ON THE ACT Heart of China's original incarnation on the PC featured the use of live actors for truly gasp- inducing graphic images. Over eighty actors were cast and decked out in period costumes, filmed in front of white backdrops. Their digitised images were then superimposed over painted scenery. The shooting took well over a year, running simultaneously with the programmers' work of creating the actual game system. Despite the amazing success of the project, though, the filming wasn't without certain hitches: the actress playing Kate Lomax, Kimberly Greenwood,
discovered she was pregnanta couple of months into shooting, and recasting and refilming was deemed too expensive at that point. So tricks were used to hide her ever-apparent bump, to the extent of hiding it with cushions, retouching the images on a computer, and so on. Unfortunately the Amiga's colour palette doesn't run to these leats, so we re stuck with drawn .representations of the actors!

The Victorian era has been carefully recreated right down to the use of pounds, shillings and pence, although cash figures can be converted to pennies-only for those who find mental calculations tricky.
As Great Britain was still the most powerful nation at the time, social standing is fundamental and characters range from the proletarian all the way up to the aristocracy. This determines wealth, and also effects, such as the way other people view the character.
Unusually, the emphasis is firmly on puzzle solving and Space 1889 is by no means the best RPG I've played, yet I wholeheartedly recommend it I for those searching for a game I with an original concept and lashings of creamy playability I and atmosphere. Tally ho, and I God save the Queen!
Mat Regan fight reaps next to no rewards, while talking (and frequently bribing) non-player characters yields information about the job in hand. The biggest drawback is the graphics - they're competently drawn, but the overhead movement screens are about as clear as British Rail's ticket pricing. Likewise, the sound is poor, but these failings are more than forgive- able in the light of the intriguing scenario and novel feel to the game.

In the glorious tradition of the British Empire, it’s eipected that the party will pay very little regard to the customs and feelings of aliens - be they

The Victorian Age is famous for its industrial advances, puritanical morality, and its advanced space flight program. Space Flight? Well, according to Empire, who have adapted the Games Designers Workshop pen-and-paper RPG, Space 1889, to the Amiga with great success.
The plot commences with an overheard rumour about the location of King Tut's tomb.
This prompts the party to travel to Egypt, which in turn leads to further adventures and subplots winding on Mars, Mercury and beyond. The' character generation system is marvellous; skills are determined by professions which vary from the mundane to the bizarre. Each profession gives the player a unique set of abili- tiesr; actors learn eloquence and theatrics and engineers study mechanics and science.

(AMIGA 1MB ON L Whilst the Amiga-own- ing world impatiently
awaits Kick Off III, Anco attempt to bridge the gap with
their foray into the world of Basketball. And, whilst it's by
no means as immediately playable as Kick Off and its sequel,
it is by far the best Basketball game to grace the machine.
Actually, with competition limited to Cinemaware's TV Sports:
• Basketball, that's not saying a great deal, but Tip Off is
probably the most playable home variety we are likely to see.
In terms of graphical and presentation styles, we’re in
familiar land here, " with programmer Steve Screech's tiny
sprites once again adorning the screen, and numerous Player
Manager-style option screens preluding the actual matches.
However, the sound front has been greatly improved, with a sample-laden tune interrupting the load and the furious squeak of sneakers against wooden court complementing the action.
Everything within the game is joystick-controlled, with its many icons all available at the press of the firebutton. As well as the usual features we have come to expfect - length of matches, choice of ref (although modesty prevents me mentioning the inclusion of a certain dashing Editorial Consultant who makes an appearance!), skill level, etc
- the more strategic can also opt to lay down complex play moves,
which your on-court team will then endeavour to follow.
However, complicated as this may sound, the moves are easy to
effect and follow, and don't get in the way of the main action
at all
- a major bonus.
The actual game itself is played over a series of court surfaces, with the players sprinting in from the right ready for the start - the 'Tip Off' for possession of the ball. In keeping with Kick Offs sparse graphical style, the players are represented by tiny sprites, but on playing it becomes apparent that they are considerably more impressive than their footy- playing counterparts.
HP OFF Depending on their direction and position on the pitch, these guys spin on the spot, poke the ball between their legs, or even dummy the opposition - all in perfect detail. Apparently, there’s over 500 frames of animation per player, and in the heat of a match it’s easy to see where it all went. Control over these miniature Magic Johnsons is simplicity itself, with the joystick activating ’steals', blocks and shots instinctively, depending on the player's vicinity to the ball. In addition, passing and shooting are equally simple, with the computer deciding who the best player to pass to
is, and also gauging the accuracy of a shot from distance. The latter is indicated by an enlargement of the ring itself, along with an indication as to where the ball will hit it.
So how does it fare in the playability stakes?
Comparing Tip Off to Kick Off and its sequel is grossly unfair as the two sports are so greatly different.
Basketball is played over a smaller area, with more complex rules so, as a result, the game is slightly more disjointed than Kick Off.
However, by ignoring a few rules (you can now pass back over the halfway line, for instance), Screech has tried to make the game more fluid. Personally, I think it works well, and that the game is both fast and easy to get into, but fans of the rough'n’tumble of Kick Off may be disappointed. Of COCK-A-HOOP! Although if is widely believed that professional Basketball came info existence in 1949, along with the formation of the National Basketball Association, stories actually date its conception to fifty- seven years before that. In addition, the rules have changed a great deal since then, too,
with the original game's 14-man a-side teams battling it out in a caged arena gradually evolving into the present 5-man teams and courts we are used to seeing today.
The seed of the idea lies with one James Naismith, a PE teacher from Montreal.
Originally, Naismith's intentions were to promote Christianity within young men. And joining the local YMCA in the capacity of Physical Instructor, started to teach Baseball, Football and assorted Gym activities.
However, due to the area’s varying weather conditions, the class rapidly got fed up with the limited indoor activities available during i the winter months. Consequently, Naismith i the idea of a fast-paced indoor Lie germ of Basketball was planted, tempt at a simple ball-game was deemed a failure bvrthe class members, so elements from Football, Rugby and even Lacrosse were added to give further pace to the new sport.
AH the time the fledgling sport wasgvolving. Naismith was being scrutinised by the VMCA's higher echelons, Who were ngtrried about thejfcie he was wasting developing it. Ho®er, With ball-pldyilready determine , all that was needed now was to determigg how each pt Recalling a game he played in his youth, Naismit ’ring’, into which the ball should be thrown. This A slowly in popularity, changing gradually! the sgprfWe no today.
Course, this is a fault inherited from the real thing, so neither Anco nor Screech can be held responsible. A brave attempt which is bound to come as a slight disappointment after Anco's two Footy classics, Tip Off is still a playable and impressive game. Not quite a three-pointer, but it still scores with me.

Now, from German-based Thalion,
comes a 'proper' flight sim where you swap missiles for passengers and military fatigues for a pilot's cap.
As the Captain of a passenger plane, there’s more to Airbus than just pulling the yoke and playing with the throttle. The first step on any journey is to plot the course, and to do this you need to input your destination, calculate how much fuel is required for the flight, and what route to take. However, before you even start the engines, calculations based on the cloud base, difference in air pressure and weather have to be entered to calibrate the plane's computer.
A320 oozes accuracy and Thalion claim that anyone who can pilot their computer version is ready for the real thing. Included in the package is a map featuring international low-altitude routes, approach coordinates, restricted air-space and flight routes. This reveals the complexity of the sim perfectly and the incredible detail it contains. Most of the controls are based around the mouse, but the keyboard comes into play for the engines and occasional navigation functions. Surprisingly, though, these simplify what could be a very difficult landing process.
Basically, Airbus's action is limited to taking-off, landing and pointing the plane in the right direction. This may sound a bit harsh, but the real skill comes in navigating and working the flight details before you take-off.
Navigating is a complicated process which requires locking onto a beacon and planning your course to avoid other flights, bad weather and mountains. Once this is mastered you can graduate from training mode and take on a plane load of passengers. However, during the dull areas of inactivity, strai; partii landi rectit instri (ILS) find!
Last: appr visu; Thalion have added a ‘time skip' key which allows you to bypass the boring in-flight movies and other routines of uninterrupted flying.
The A320 handles extremely well for a passenger aircraft, but don't expect it to be as nippy as an F15; try to be flash in one of these and you'll wind up hitting the ground - fast. Additionally, 1 because the plane takes a long time to respond, you'll have to think a few seconds ahead to make sure you Bank Vtrt.Spcad: H»*dtn«: Nr.of Touohdowni: Final T D Point: Futl Calculation: The graphics and animation for A320 Airbus are superb, especially the hazing effect of Hying through banks of cloud.
Overall Rating (in P*po«nt) INPUT A series of well-designed screens lead you through the setting up of your flight, and the checking of the weather conditions. The cockpit layout is neat, with all the relevant instruments clearly displayed.
Because the Airbus is a modem plane, most of the readouts are situated on a AIEEEE! WE RE GOING TO DIE! Anything can happen wben straighten the aircraft. This is particularly true of making a landing, as last second corrections are vital. There’s an instrument landing system (ILS) which must be used to lind your glide-slope, but the last 30 seconds or so of an approach have to be done visually.
Cated s lock- I 0 avoid her this is Juate 1 take sen- the time you to ght les of fou're trapped in a plane at 40,000 teet, or so American writers would have us believe. William Shatner, playing a priest, battled the Devil on a 747 In Terror at 30,000 Feet. After treeing several people Irom demonic possession, the evil one got the better ot him, and a very crude cardboard cut-out of Shatner on a chromakey background was seen plummeting from the aircraft.

Monitor, rather than a bank of dials which are usually common in commercial aircraft.
This also comes across well in the computer version, although you can only input numbers through a fiddly onscreen numeric pad, which proves awkward to use.
In terms of presentation, the graphics and sound are simple, but very realistic. The engine effects consist of a few samples which change pitch according the how much throttle is being applied. Similarly, the graphics feature minimal and bland scenery, punctuated by the occasional special effect, such as the hazing when you go through a cloud, adding to the realism.
A320 Airbus is a very good simulation. It's both extremely detailed and accurate, but unless you're really into this kind of 'hard-core' sim, you could find the appeal wanes quickly. Had there been a disaster mode which caused the engines to cut-out, cabin pressure to drop or lightening to strike, the game would have much greater appeal. As it stands, though, this is most certainly the game for wannabe British Airways Pilots and realism freaks.

Oversized baldies in cheap makeshift togas tussle each other to the floor whilst old grannies wave umbrellas and throw rolled- up bits of newspaper into a ply-board ring. However, in America, it's a totally different story. Beer bellies are replaced by finely-toned gargantuan physiques, and the pensioners fight for ringside seats with adults and children who sport their
latest hero’s face on placards, T-shirts and moulded rubber masks.
Yes, WWF is big business.
And so, as most things do these days, Wrestlemania has crossed the Atlantic and become the latest craze on our shores. Ocean's game takes the most popular characters from the Federation and separates them into good guys and bad boys.
Naturally your choice of characters is made from the former category.
With each hero comes an individual set of moves and statistics. Weight, birthday, favourite sayings and best move are all listed, and all that’s missing are their star signs. The first wrestler is Hulk Hogan, the definitive WWF star, who just loves to tell you that he has the biggest arms in the world and that very soon they're going to be squeezing the excrement out of you. British Bulldog is less outspoken, but no less outrageous, and his special move has his opponent scooped-up and power-slammed to the canvas. The last choice of wrestler is The Ultimate Warrior, who looks like an
ex-member of rock band KISS. He likes nothing better than to cuddle up close for the Gorilla Press.
The game has two modes: Competition and Practise.
The latter is vital for learning all the joystick and fire button combinations. Although WWF is billed as a two-player game this is only possi' in Practise mode and only one of you, the good guy, can choose the character to use - the opponent will always be Mr Perfect. Get used to the large sprites, develop some go combinations and fighting tactics, and then take on the first of the five pro grapplers: Mr Perfect, Warlord, Million Dollar Man, The Mounty and Sgt. Slaughter.
During the five minute contest the aim is simply to reduce the opponent’s energy bar by knocking the hell out of him, get him on (.. canvas and hold him there.
Sooner or later you're going to get in a clinch, a stand off where both of you grimace face-to-face, straining to go one way or the other. The only way out is to waggle your joystick from left to right faster than the opposition, picking him up and hurling him across the ring. And there's action outside the ropes, too - there's always a handy chair to smack over someone's head. Apart from this there's nothing more to' Not bad fun for those young enough to think the real thing’s authentic, but it becomes a touch tedious for the test of us.

The wrestlers are then introduced and have a slight slanging match in which you are offered a choice of responses. The audience cheer and the big fight eventually begins.

By the 24th century, the Federated Worlds have grown, expanding through known space, and are now meeting hostile resistance from a mish-mash of alien races and rebel forces.
Sound familiar? Apart from being a scenario uncomfortably close to a multitude of other sci-fi games. ROE draws from Star Trek for most of its inspiration. Having failed the test for originality, does ROE have what it takes to be a valid contribution to your games collection?
On opening the box, the thick wad of rules can be found. To be fair, the rule- book is laid out in a linear fashion, and the first chapter is a very helpful warmup tutorial.
Once into the game, its sophistication and depth become apparent.
A series of menus and selection screens guide the player through the myriad choices and decisions required of a .Fleet Commander. Send an order and the subordinate commander receives and acts upon it some time later.
Some captains even choose to ignore commands; this realistically illustrates the ‘fog of war' problems faced by commanders.
The dull graphics may turn away many cynical players, and it's true that they have all the visual splendour of an amateur drama production, but with so much information to supply it's hard to see how else they could look. A control panel at the top of the screen uses icons to accesses sub-menus, and everything is entirely mouse- driven.
It doesn’t take long to learn the system, although keeping track of all the variables can be a pig. As mentioned, multi-ship operations are the trickiest - it's hard enough putting your own ship through its paces, let alone three others.
Likewise, everything moves in real time, so there are few opportunities to sit back and relax, except when your armada is en route to an enemy location. Combat is a very complicated business with both ships blasting, circling and trying to hammer down the enemy’s shields for a killing blow. At times like these, it’s best to put trust in your captains and leave them to their own devices.
Trekkieswillbegladto know that nearly all the sound effects in the game have been inspired by Star Trek. Communicating with other ships causes a whistling sound to make Spock proud, and firing the Enhanced Beam Weapons will bring a tear to the eye of any Roddenberry fan.
But the game is just too complex. During combat, manouevring, fighting and defending are too demanding, forcing the player to concentrate on one instead of all three simultaneously.
SCREEN SCENE RULES Of The combat movements are similarly tricky. 'Halt' is a waste ot time until the opponent is rendered harmless, and 'Position', while providing the good guys with plenty ot chances to tire, unfortunately does the same tor the enemy. 'Shadow' keeps you relatively out of harm's way, but trying to get a fix on the enemy is slippery work indeed.
The missions are helpfully classified according to difficulty, and strategy tips are included for good measure.
Apart from fhe obvious ship combat, patrols and outpost assault have been included - the latter being especially enticing with the IGS link. A full mission creation facility adds to the already impressive long-term appeal of the game, and it's a shame that there’s no facility to link two Amigas and battle it out with a human opponent. Despite this, the emphasis is on running succesful campaigns, nursing your alter ego through the fACTCAL K Ejlw fi Uhdilll Above: The combat screen. The target's locked, but is still outside effective range. The navigation screen (left) shows the relative
positions of the space craft before closing to fight, while (be ow) orders are issued to the rest of the fleet.
Junoim 001 tm IliMIM!
Scenarios whilst gaining promotions and decorations - and with three difficulty levels and 21 scenarios, I defy anyone to finish this quickly.
I was happily surprised by Rules of Engagement. So many space combat games ot late - such as Starflight II and SSI's Renegade Legion Interceptor- have been disappointing that it's a pleasant change to find a good example of the genre. The graphics may be discouraging, but they give the player exactly what he or she needs to get stuck into the game.
Nevertheless, I wouldn't recommend this to novices or those who like simple-minded blasts, but tor those who are hungry for a slick and playable space combat simulator, this is easily the best around.
Matt Regan ONCE MORE INTO THE BREACH Boarding actions In ROE are handled by the computer, which controls the two sides and informs the player ol the result. There's little the player can do to influence the outcome except tor using experienced troops tor the battle. However. ROE is part ot the Interlocking Games System (or IGS lor short). Which means that owners ol Breach 2Irom Impressions can make troop combat tar more exciting.
When troops enter an enemy vessel or outpost, the game loads in Breach scenarios, allowing lull control over every squad member.
The game draws its approach from Star Trek, but adds some great touches that put it In a class of its own. The commander above, in control of FWS Explorer, tends to follow orders accurately, but you can't rely on all your subordinates to this extent -1 guarantee you’ll tear out your hair the first time someone uses their ‘initiative’ during a fight and scarpers!

Thus, in a scenario straight out of James Cameron's Aliens, the player is left to wander the apparently-empty corridors of a dark base in search of numerous trapped hostages, armed only with a pulse laser and a limited supply of grenades. Whilst the gameplay offered nothing' new, though, the Space Gun coin-op simply oozed atmosphere, and this conversion recreates it perfectly with ominous heartbeats and eerie squeals following every movement.
Busters' veteran, Henry Clark's conversion features all the gruesome explosions and strange creatures that graced the coin-op, along with other new features the machine introduced. For instance, whereas Operation Thunderbolt and its many clones force the player to follow a set route, Space Gun occasionally throws up a choice, with the player allowed to select one of two routes during key sections of the game. One noticeable loss from the arcade parent is, unfortunately, inevitable, though. Whereas we’re all used to seeing Uzis stuck on to the front of game cabinets, the Space Gun machine
housed two futuristic rifles which sported an impressive pump action to load in your many freeze grenades, smart bombs and fireballs. On the Amiga this has given way to the right mouse button which, whilst it is every bit as effective, just isn't the same somehow. However, to give Ocean and Images their due, they have made the game compatible with Trojan's Light Gun, adding to the fun immensely - somewhat surprisingly, it also proves to be very accurate, too.
Having selected a one or two-player game, the game opens with the player moving slowly into the shadowy corridors ahead. As can be expected, this is typical Op Thunderbolt territory, except that the dark secretions the Aliens have left on the walls and the general feeling of gloom that the graphics and sound give, raise the game above even Beast Busters in »- SPACE Gur I terms of atmosphere.
With the mouse guiding your cross-hair, the game’s many aliens start to appear from the distance, and pressing the left mouse button sends a stream of laserfire towards them. These nasties range from the expected facehugger clones to a variety of multi-armed reptiles and ant-like creatures.
Contact with these saps your already-limited health - represented by a set of red, dripping claw marks across the screen - so they must be shot before getting too close.
However, as the game progresses, they get harder to kill and care must be taken not to wound any of the hostages within a level.
Each level winds its way through a separate section of the base, past multi-floored decks - complete with gaping acid holes in the floor - and eventually to the escape shuttle which represents the end of the game. However, should all the hostages within a level be wiped out or your energy and credits fully depleted, your mission will be prematurely ended. Likewise, in the final battle within the shuttle, if too many of your shots slam into the ship's cockpit, the craft will be rendered unusable and your mission deemed a failure.
Gurf s levels scroll smoothly in the four compass directions as you pad through the base, and ' the graphics change accordingly as you get nearer the heart of the Aliens' lair. Also, blocking your exit to the next area are a series of larger mutants who, in time-honoured fashion, must be shot repeatedly until they eventually explode. Graphically, though, these guardians are nothing short of stunning, with huge tentaded creatures dominating the screen or legions of smaller creatures making an appearance - brilliant stuff.
Although there are only a few additions to the tried and tested game-style, at least Space Gun offers fast and uncompromising gameplay.
THE SQUEAL THING Space Gun's sound is simple but very effec- live, with a Ihumping heartbeat and numerous sampled Alien squeals accompanying the action. As the player gets closer to the guardian, the heartbeat starts to speed up, and whenever the player concedes a hit a loud groan signals the loss ol energy. Plus, whenever an Alien egg or a breakable object is hit, there is a loud splat or crashing noise. The game's sound was handled by Images’ veteran, Matt Simmons, who sampled the effects from the coin-op before reproducing them using Noiselrackeron the Amiga.
Bearing in mind how well they add to the atmosphere, it is even more surprising to learn that they take up less than 50K of the complete code.
The attention to detail adds a certain edge over others in the genre, with plasti-glass doors shattering, and humans mutating into Aliens whilst others scurry across the ceiling. One fault I will levy, though, is that the action doesn't vary a great deal, but the continuous changing of the backdrops (which Includes a jeep ride across the planet's surface) and the multitude of new Aliens ensures that it will keep your interest. I am a major fan of the coin-op, and this is the best conversion anyone could possibly have hoped for. Very few details have been lost considering the Amiga's
relatively-low specifications compared to the arcade game, and this makes for a solid - if unoriginal - shoot 'em up.

Acknowledged Joe Pineaooes copyrtghi - Fleetway PuWcabora 1991 [ if the name of Centaur S I Software's new shoot ‘em up I sounds tamilar, that's because it's based on the Academy Award- i winning tilm ot the
same name.
Made in 1966, Fantastic Voyage starred Stephen Boyd, Raquel Welch and Donald Pleasance in a battle against time to save a dying ? Scientist. In true Cold War-style, the detecting professor had been badly hurt in an assassination l attempt by the ‘other side’ (ie the commies). Suffering serious brain damage, the dying man is vitally important to secret tests being carried out into miniaturisation, and the powers-that-be decide to shrink a mini-sub and its crew to microscopic size and inject them into the man’s circulatory system to destroy the clot in his brain.
Such B-movie pretentions were i at odds with the film's lavish spell l cial effects, which won the movie V an Oscar. Much the same can be I said ot the game. Although the' H, graphics are superb, the actual I, gameplay is pedestrian and uncre- J ative. The scenario follows the film V almost to the letter. The game . Begins in an artery near the neck If' otthe patient. Controlling the sub- I marine, Proteus, you have to guide I the miniature vessel through the II maze-like byways of the human 11 body, avoiding antibody cells and H other defence systems, in an If attempt to reach the brain and
I ' destroy the blood clot with a laser.
Along the way, nine pieces of a cir- | j cut board have to be recovered in Tlw push-scrolling technique used In the game Is a little off-putting at first, especially as It's difficult lo see whal's coming up next.
Order to operate the laser, as well as fuel and oxygen pods to keep Proteus operational. Failure to do so will result in either the ship exploding or its occupants turning a very dark shade ot blue!
There are three difficulty levels to choose from (Beginner, Advanced or Pro) and these determine how many hits the Proteus can sustain. Starting with three lives, with two continues for added longevity, the ship can move in eight different directions via the joystick.
In all, there are three huge levels to navigate, all made up ot intricate passageways through the human body. The first involves what look like massive flying marshmallows which, I'm reliably informed, are antibodies, together with cancer cells and other miscreant nasties. Most of these have been based on electron microscope photographs of the interiors of blood vessels and cells, although some are obvious flights of fancy, especially when they start shooting back. Level two is even more bizarre featuring organisms based upon ‘tracks created in the bubble chamber ot particle accel
erators when they are subjected to beams ot sub-atomic particles'.
Sure guys, but they still look like marshmallows to me! After collecting all the microchips and completing the last level, it’s off to try the blood clot and complete the mission.
Graphically, Fantastic Voyage is superb. The area immediately surrounding the vessel is illuminated with the rest of the screen masked in varying degrees of darkness.
The programmers have also used the effect first seen in Battle Squadron, which distorts certain parts of the screen and causes a liquid-like ripple. Here it's used to brilliant effect and at times it almost seems that you are indeed piloting a ship down a human artery. Despite the tlashy graphics, there’s no hiding the tact that the gameplay is a bit 'tired' - the ship SOUNDING OFF The sound etlectj are disappointing and sound almosl -tinny'. The metallic thud ol the laser lire as II crashes Into the surrounding caverns Isn't exactly how I would have Imagined it Id sound.
However, the music oplion Is eslremely atmospheric, consisting ol a cacophony ol swirling electronic noises strung together wilh a psychedelic wall ol sound. And it lasts lor an Impressive 23 minutes before looping.
Moves at a snail’s pace and it’s easy to avoid the on-coming bioslugs and attack waves. To some extent this is excusable as the variety of bio-beasts on the loose is superb; it’s just a pity that the overall design is a bit sloppy. The film set the medical crew a time limit of sixty minutes to complete their mission before they grew back to real size. A similar time element introduced in the game would have given a certain urgency to the proceedings, but as it standsr there’s nothing here to set the pulse racing.

It is obvious from the minimal gameplay that Electronic Zoo have seen how fast the Amiga can scroll and based a game around it.
The result is a frenetic and relatively playable blast which, sadly, doesn't contain enough meat to keep the player interested. A variant on the Armalyte theme, Cardiaxx pits the player against the might of the Cardiaxx empire within a two- way-scrolling play area.
Within this area a series of alien attack waves and guardians appear and these must be taken out before the ever-decreasing time-limit expires. And that, dear reader, is Cardiaxx.
The game is split into four areas, within which the player must exercise their trigger finger and reflexes, whilst leaving their brain in neutral.
These levels, despite the addition of bas-relief or organic backdrops, are pretty much alike with the player destroying one wave of Cardiaxx fighters before using their on-screen indicator to locate the next. I have a feeling that Electronic Zoo were hoping that the nail-biting speed of the game would trick the player into ignoring the lack of variety, but it actually has the opposite effect.
Providing that the player survives the almost inevitable energy-sapping collisions with the enemy, they eventually reach a pair of guardians (who remain the same throughout the game - whatever happened to variety?)
And who block access to the next level. Following a short space-bound sequence, the next level is then entered.
Like so many games from the shoot ’em up genre, Cardiaxx is initially very playable, and the urge to have another crack is akin to all those 8-bit games we so fondly remember. However, once the first level has been beaten and the ensuing space scene passed, the repetitive levels erode any further interest. If larger space bases or extra background detail was added, perhaps this would have helped, but I suspect that this would have slowed it down considerably. As a budget release, I would have no hesitation in recommending Cardiaxx as it is perfectly suited for the odd blast whenever the
need to do some damage arises.
FAST’N’FURIOUS Creating a good balance between speed and longevity within the limitations of the shoot 'em up is extremely tricky. With Cardiaxx, it is only the lack of variety that causes the problems and, to date, only a few blasters have bridged the gap. The C64 was choc-a-bloc with top-notch shoot 'em ups, with Andrew Brayhrook’s Uridium and Cyberdyne Systems' Armalyte regarded as true classics. Thus, with the Amiga’s faster processing speed and far superior capabilities, surely we should be up to our necks in speedy blasters? Nope.
The problem apparently lies with shitting backdrops and numerous sprites at speed, as even the Amiga has problems doing that.
Thus, it Is far easier to slow the games down and concentrate on the game’s look rather than opt for a sparse but fast game.
However, this is by no means a bad thing as past hits such as Z Out and Denaris prove.
Unfortunately, as it stands, twenty-six quid is too much to pay for such limited carnage.

Werrett Hidden somewhere in the instructions for Celtic Legends and the usual mystical tosh about long-forgotten kingdoms, unicorns and dyslexic dwarves is a highly playable slice of strategic combat gaming.
The scenario for this French-programmed game revolves around two wizards, Sogrom and Eskel, involved in a titanic battle for power after the demise of the world of Celtica’s original ruler. It is a classic case of good against evil, with the winner ' ,*J u taking all the spoils. The con- flict is set on the island * * archipeligo of Rochebrume. •£ ,-.*L ¦ There's a choice of two N. ¦ islands to wage your cam- J|p " mz, paign on, each of which is ¦ ¦ * * divided up into hexagonal grids and which act as ‘play- across two screens: one for ing squares'. In fact, as Celtic the strategy
element of the Legends unfolds, it has much game, the other for the tac- in common with board games tics or action. Having chosen like chess and, less an island to fight on, you abstractly. Risk as it does move to the strategy screen, with role-playing. This is divided up into a small The action takes place window depicting the island, and a larger magnification of the area you are concentrating on. Each wizard begins with a finite number of legions composed of creatures with a variety of combat power. These can be split or moved whole around the playing area. Each move costs a number of
points, limiting the amount of ground you can cover with heavy units using more points. It is possible to construct castles from the strategy screen, but these cost magic points and The play area is split into a series of squares, within which the characters move. Each move within these costs the player a number of points, thus limiting your options It spells &re to be cast.
The moves are effected from a special selection window and, from here, the player can designate where to put their magicians and soldiers for optimum effect.
Magic points are the key to Celtic Legends, as they determine the power of each particular wizard.
Each player has a turn on the strategy screen, moving his units into positions of strategic power and challenging the opposing army as it attempts to build up power and control the island. When you’re satisfied that you've set your strategy you wait for the other player or the computer to make their move.
This generally results in a small or large scale conflict, taking you to the area of combat and putting up the tactical screen.
Legions are composed of loot soldiers, dragons, cyclops and magicians. Each has a certain amount of strength and stamina in battle when it comes down to straight hand-to-hand combat, but the best approach is lo use magic to overcome the opposition, saving your troop strength and protecting your key players. Both magicians and troops are limited by a number of factors displayed down the left-hand side of the screen. Hit points simply I SPELL CASTING There are some 15 spells which come into use during the game. These grow as you gain experience and accrue magic points. Since each spell cast
costs points you have to budget your actions accordingly. At the lower end there are simple spells like fireballs which only cost five points, but the stakes rise as you begin to cast spells like contagion (which sends one of your units over to the opposition carrying a deadly plague), or lightning which zaps them with a particularly effective bolt from the blue. Other spells allow you to heal your own men or teleport out of trouble. Some of the spells can be blocked by natural objects in their path so it pays to manoeuvre the enemy so you have a clear ‘shot’ for something like a fireball.
Determine your ability fo carry on; magic level denotes just how many spells you can use; experience shows your level of experience which, as it increases, boosls you spell knowledge; action points denote the number of actions possible each turn; strength shows the amount ot damage you can inflict with a blow and dexterity shows just how good your chances of hitting the target are - this is particsequences and sound effects with a serious amount of strategy. Each of the characters is readily identifiable and the islands are given character and variety with mounds, castles, swamps, and
trees.
The only reservation which exists about it is that its role- playing element is restricted.
Ular crucial in spell casting because wasted spells mean wasted opportunities.
Pentangles situated on the islands allow you to create new characters, while the game can be thrown randomly when savages on the island attack either side without warning.
Celtic Legends is an entertaining slice ot fantasy combat, that combines some nice animation, action If you compare it to some top-of-the-range DSD games you get the interaction and the exploration combined in the package. There again if you only ever play them for the combat then Celtic Legends has more than enough depth and variety to keep you going.

REALMS Iot lhat long ago, some bright spark thought it would be a good idea to give players the illusion of having great power over their weedy sprites. The first batch of these so-called 'God Sims’, Populous and SimCity, became two of the most successful computer games ever created.
Publishers are keen to Jump on the bandwagon, and so we’ve seen a recent spate sequels. Realms is the latest but does it add anything to this over-crowded genre?
‘Realms is more than a mere ‘God Sim' or wargame,' proclaims Virgin Games at the beginning of the manual, Realms is a fully-functioning fantasy world'.
THE BRAINTREE BOYS So much tor those tacky Essex Man and Girt gags, this is the place that spawned hardcore dance music raves Irom The Prodigy and some ot the best known computer games in the mid-eighties. Steve Turner and Andrew Braybrook, partners in code, have an extensive list ol hits on the old Spectrum and C64 to their credit including 30 Lunattack, Avalon, Bribbly's Day Out, Paradmld and Urldlum. More recently, the dynamic duo have produced the appealing Rainboiv Islands and Simolcra. Their latest eflort is a brave attempt to relive lormer glories. Sadly. Realms doesn't quite manage to
pull it oft.
An impressive series of animated screens skillfully create a sullen mood at the start of play. It’s the old story of famine, poverty, war and a new king itching to prove himself. No bonus score for guessing who you take the role of. It's your job to balance the budget, give the peasants plenty of food and weapons, and make sure your butt remains intact during a battle. The twist is that you’re lording over a fantasy land populated by the likes of OrCs, Elves, Dwarves, Barbarians, Vikings and Amazons. Ores hate Elves more than Dwarves, so watch your back when going for quick alliances!
There’s always an enemy lurking somewhere nearby and the task ahead is to crush them without mercy and win overall control of the realm.
Ll fnFrr Your citizens are totally loyal to your cause. So hit ’em where it hurts - in their wallet.
Software development team Graftgold has supplied eight scenarios with the game, although there’s no reason why these couldn't be expanded via datadisks in the future. This product is very much like Powermonger from Bullfrog EA, except there are less icons and nit- picky details to worry about.
Both games are played in real-time and a mistake can turn into a masterstroke in a matter of seconds, providing you don't panic. The big difference between the two is that Realms lets you control vast cities of plebs and is on a much grander scale than Powermonger.
N Once you’ve selected a crippling tax rate and seen the overall state of your nation on the World Map, you can drop into an isometric 3D world. It's possible to scroll across the land in four directions to view all the armies, settlements, grasslands, deserts, water and forests lying around.
Graphically, Realms is beautiful. You can’t zoom or rotate the landscape as in Powermonger, but at least this screen is updated in a much quicker fashion. Some of the fractal maps have been constructed from nearly 200 polygons and look superb.
A single man can represent up to one thousand troops. Friends are distinguished from foes by the colour of their flags. Yellow is your colour, the enemy is dressed in red and waverers denoted by blue. There are sound effects for major events and the crystal ball on the bottom left-hand comer of the screen will flicker into life.
Clicking on this will reveal a brief description of what's happened.
It's in the cities and towns where crucial decisions are made. If the settlement is big, you can recruit some soldiers. Groups can be armed depending on your cash flow.
And watch out for poor morale. A few coins in their greedy hands should appease them. Money really does make the world go around... without it, you won’t be able to buy grain to feed the hungry hordes, build stone walls to protect them or pay your armies to extend your empire. When push comes to shove, you'll also require lots of cash to take care of life's little worries like outbreaks of plague and rebuilding razed cities.
The occupants from getting out of line.
The real fun begins when the crystal ball shows a pair of swords. This lets you know that a full-scale battle is about to commence. If you activate it, the display changes to a more classic computer representation of a wargame until the battle is won or lost. Individual units can be positioned into place and perform a combination of attack or defensive actions.
Flags at either side of the One little tip: Always keep approximately one assignment of foot soldiers or cavalry outside every city under your control. It keeps FROM THE DEEPEST PITS OF UTUMNO According to fantasy novelist supremo JHR Tolkien, Melkor tortured many Elven tolk In tils dark dungeons thereby transforming them Into the horrific race of Ores during the First Age of the Stars. These loathsome red-eyed slaves, twisted by pain and hate, were solely created to satisfy Melkor’s evil curiosity and to do his bidding. Although they were fierce and deadly warriors, Ores often resorted
to cannibalism and feared the light.
Huge armies of Ores went on the rampage throughout Middle Earth until a tinal battle before the Black Gate ot Morannon.
After Sauron's One Ring was destroyed at Mount Doom, their numbers and power dwindled until Ores merely became know as mischievous Goblins. If you want to find out more, try reading The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings or The Silmarlllion.
Battlefield provide you with a clue to the morale of both forces. Ultimately, the idea is to field more troops than your opponent - but blind luck or a cunning strategy can swing the tide your way. There’s nothing more satisfying than to see the enemy take flight and retreat off the screen.
The battle sequence could have been expanded. It's the best part of Realms but doesn't go far enough.
Perhaps the designers could have placed more powerful MoCl ir creatures in the armies to help balance an unfair situation and add a bit of spice?
There were many times when I could have used the aid of a fire-breathing Dragon or a tough legion of Trolls to sort the opposition out. And why is sieging a city so boring?
Where are the massive mobile wooden tower things you always see soldiers using to smash fortifications in the movies? I suppose expanding the game further would have caused the introduction of irritating disk-swapping. Oh, I didn't like the annoying tune that constantly plays in the background, either.
Powermonger and Mega- lo-Mania are tough acts to follow and Realms isn't as exciting as either of these epics. Not that this Graftgold game doesn't have its gripping moments, it's just there are too few of them. This omnipotent outing has somewhat missed the boat, especially with the imminent launch of Populous II- the almighty 'Zeus of God Sims'!
Then again, players who couldn’t handle the complexities of Pewermonger should definitely give it a go.

and Elite, Demonware’s latest offering is a strange hybrid of
gaming syles which puts you in control of a huge intergalactic
spaceship.
The human race has fled the solar system and is desperately seeking a new safe haven. As commander of the Starlight, a gigantic vessel with more than three million cryo- genically frozen civilians on board, it’s up to you to guide the ship to its new destination.
An alien presence has been detected and its a race against time to ready the ship's defences and save the dayl The game uses a simple point-and-click icon-driven interface which is easy to use, but allows quite complex commands to be handed out.
There are approximately 100 missions to complete, ranging from picking up stray meteorites for their valuable ore content to intergalactic dogfights against a squadron of alien attack craft. To help you in your task, it's possible to 'defrost' a number of crack pilots from their sleep-like state and boost their aggression and piloting prowess by tinkering with their inate abilities.
Once you've assembled your crew, you need to prepare some ships and equip them with whatever might be necessary, such as laser batteries, force fields or photon missiles. Unfortunately, in an effort to save space, the mothership is only stocked with raw materials, so any armaments or equipment have to be specially ordered. It can take time to fulfill some orders, especially when there's a lack of certain materials, so it's best to plan ahead.
As the game progresses, you’ll come into contact with friendly traders, war-like races and other intergalactic travellers. Each time combat takes place, pilots grow in experience and ability, and trading can provide valuable new materials for constructing bigger and better armaments.
The strategic flavour of the game is complemented by a 3D shoot 'em up section. Once a ship is sent into space, a player can chose to either let the computer control the action or opt to take manual control.
Why Demonware felt the need for such an arcade sequence is beyond me - it just seems so out of place with the rest of the game.
Overall, I can’t find much to fault with Exodus 3010.
Conversely, I can't find much to commend it. Either. The linear progression of missions restricts the freedom to explore the universe which Elite offered, and locks the player into performing some incredibly drab missions before undertaking some of the more dangerous ones in the later stages of the game. There is a game in there somewhere, but it's hidden beneath an impenetrable layer of tedious and routine chores.

without warranty DUUHBRINGER Karri the Barbarian must be
destroyed, so a pact has been devised: persuade a demon called
Abaddon to transform himself into a magic sword called
Deathbringer. In return Abaddon may take the souls of his
victims. But, by an uncanny twist of fate, the weapon falls
into Kam’s own hands as he sets out to rid the world of the
wizard's menace.
Looking at the screen shots you could be forgiven for thinking that this is the best game since you paid £45 for Dragon's Lair. However I don’t think I've been more frustrated with gameplay since Des Walker scored an own goal in the semi-final of the World Cup.
There are 36 levels of parallax scrolling spread over the 30 interconnecting levels. Kam's adventures take him across icy wastes, underground caverns, dense forests and other extremely detailed backdrops. The idea behind this is to satisfy the sword’s ever increasing appetite for souls. The more people killed the more power gained - and if you don't fulfil your quota the sword will take control of you and eventually drain your own life away.
There is more than one route to the wizards’s lair, and some paths are longer and loop back on themselves. All levels are linked by animated guardians.
They’re cunning and attack in an unpredictable manner - so save time and lives and just run for it.
The trouble with the game is that it's very hard to control, particularly Karn.
His sword movements are slow, and when he runs he needs a second or more to stop. Most of the monsters can be jumped over or passed without hindrance and, although the screens are great to look at, you won't be too sad if you never have to go through them again. Probably a game that’ll fill many a Christmas stocking, so tell your folks to cross it off their list.

MNIB COMMAND There are two important things to note about Fighter Command. First, it’s set in the Middle East in modern ti This is not to suggest that Fighter Command has little depth.
The challenge of running an air campaign should stretch most people, particularly when there is as much to do as there is in this game.
Begin by selecting a scenario. There are 28 possible setups ranging from conflict between small states like the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait, historical battles like the 1973 Yom Kippur war, and a full-scale Gujf War scenario embroiling everyone.
The action unfolds over a series of maps. A strategic map depicts the entire region, and a small cursor square can be clicked on to take you into a radar representation of the relevant area. This gives a tactical view of the playing zone with a Strategy games are Impressions tone and Fighter Command Is certainly up to their usual standard and is one of the better wargames on the marttet.
Variety of coloured dots denoting cities, bases, units, civil and military installations and, most importantly, the air traffic. By the time you’re embroiled in a major conflict, the screen is a mass of multi-coloured lines and dots which should confuse anyone without air-traffic controller's qualifications.
A satellite map gives a smaller, detailed area that shows what's on and above the terrain; nevertheless, most of the action unfolds on the radar screen. However, this is limited by the range of your sweep, so one of the first things you’ll need to do is send out an AWAC aircraft to increase your information.
The key to Fighter Command is careful resource management, because not only are your various aircraft limited, but so are your supplies.

Mike Pattenden Like Fighter Command, EA's Strike Fleet is a command-based battle simulation, but unlike Impressions’ approach, it shifts you down the chain allowing you to involve yourself directly in the action.
The 14 possible scenarios range from Falklands skirmishes, Persian Gulf patrols and several what-if, WWIII battles involving pesky Commies (somewhat anachronistic, but who's quibbling?). You begin each scenario by configuring a task force of ships best suited to the one you have chosen, though it’s often worthwhile making sure at least one of your vessels carries medium or long-range SAMs as they're invaluable. With a balanced fleet you then set a destination on the map (zooming in on the hotspot) and issue orders to the ships under your command, placing them on general quarters and
setting their radar and sonar defences in operation.
With the basics set up, you can shift to the bridge of your flagship. Here you can control just about everything in the game and even swap to the bridges of other ships or the cockpits of helicopters. The radar is the most crucial setting allowing you to monitor the activity around you for hundreds of kilometres. Enemy movement is shown as red dots and clicking on them will give you further information.
Each ship has a variety of attack weaponry ranging through surface-to-surface and surface-to-air missiles, torpedoes, cannons and defensive armoury which includes phalanx shells (a computer-guided anti-missile cannon) and chaff. Warning lights on the lower right tell you if you’re under missile attack.
If the action is proceeding too slowly you can compress the time, though once it starts hotting up out there you’ll want to slow it down to a standstill! After each game your performance is marked and a ranking assigned to you ranging from ensign to fleet admiral.
While the graphics are hardly breathtaking, they are clear and well thought out. The ELECTRONIC ARTS £24.95 gameplay soon becomes absorbing, since it never takes long for the action to develop, particularly when using the time compression facility. If you're the sort of person who likes to keep track of lots of projects at once then Strike Fleet is the business.
Mike Pattenden f Excellent battle sim that's action-packed • J GRAPHICS 78% SOUND 77% LASTABILITY 81% PLAYABILITY 83% OVERALL 81% You’d think life as a gnome was boring enough - all that standing around fish ponds in suburban gardens waiting for dogs to pee on you
- without having to control one in a game as dull as The Magic
Garden.
The idea sounds promising: a mischievous gnome has to manage the Gnome King's garden as a punishment.
The lawn grows rapidly and can fall victim to rampaging plants and other naughty gnomes who dig up the turf. To complicate matters, the climate is unstable and you only have a limited amount of energy which must be replenished by growing vegetables to eat or discovering little life-giving hearts.
Much of the work you have to do in the garden involves you using objects found in the shed and the greenhouse.
The gnome can store useful implements in his pockets, anything in fact, from trowels through seeds, lawnmowers, watering cans and gardening forks.
There are also objects which stop him losing energy too rapidly, such as an umbrella when it’s raining and slippers when it turns cold. Both the greenhouse and the shed need a regulated temperature, which involves getting a generator up and running and repairing broken windows in the greenhouse.
There are less obvious areas of the garden to explore including the outdoor lavatory, a hollow tree stump and a magic well which leads to a maze of tunnels. These all contain more useful items, particularly extra energy.
The Magic Garden is reasonably good to look at - while the characters are small, they're well defined. Part of the problem is the irritating control method which involves you rifling through the gnome's pockets and clicking on objects to activate them. Most of all, though, the gameplay simply doesn't add up. It turns out to be about as interesting as listening to Gardeners' Question Time, and that's gnomean feat.

ROBOCOP The first really successful movie licence, Robocop was
the first Ocean game to utilise the now-overused mixture of
puzzle and arcade sequences. Stepping into the metallic insoles
of ol’ chrome dome himself, players must blast their way
through a rogue's gallery of bad guys until he reaches the end
of the level for a face-off against a larger guardian.
Alternating between these arcade sequences, though, are a series of puzzles, ranging from a cross-hair-based shoot 'em up scene to a photo-fit sequence, where Robo must identify a particular felon. The mixture is a little dated now and the action repetitive but, on the whole, Robocop is still a playable blaster
- if a bit on the easy side. On the downside, though, it hear
kens back to the days when the Amiga saw too many straight
ports from the ST and, as such, can’t claim to push the
machine. This said, it's probably still worth a look at its new
eight-quid price tag.
Steve Merrett, CU's resident skin flint, peruses the veritable cornucopia of budget games set for release this month... 74% HIT SQUAD OUT NOW £7.99 OPERATION THUNDERBOLT An oddity, this. Although Ocean advertised its availability several years back, the Amiga version of .
Taito's duff 'em up coin-op never actually appeared in the UK. Faithfully recreating the five manic stages of the coin-op, Software Creations' conversion is graphically very similar to the Amstrad CPC • game. The gameplay seems as slow as that of Alan Sugar’s baby. The scenario tells of a street fighter out to avenge the kidnap of his chick from the clutches of yet another Mr. Big. Thus, starting in the sub-way, the player works his way through to Big’s lair by kicking the crap out of any thugs who get in his way. With a full complement of easy-to-use kicks, punches and throws, the player
must take on up to four opponents at a time, many of whom are armed or are seated on motorbikes.
And, as expected, a harder fighter is rolled on when all his subordinates are KO’d.
As a conversion, Renegade is more than adequate and is quite a steal as a budget release. However, its lasting appeal is severely doubtful, and the hardened binary fighter will complete it within hours. Still, hopefully Renegade will pave the way for the 16-bit conversion of Target Renegade and Renegade III, which are considerably better.
After an over-difficult conversion of Operation Wolt, fans of the series were relieved when the sequel was almost identical to its arcade parent. Operation Thunderbolt combines the sideways- scrolling action of the first game, with a forward- scrolling section which has casemodif B Slimline 0 Internal since been much-copied in the likes of Space Gun and Line Of Fire. Once again, we are in 'rescue the hostages' territory, as the player and a friend attempt to blast a path through to the escape plane at the end of the game. All manner of extra weapons are both available and thrown at you,
and must be shot to deflect them and the assailants blown away. The one major fault with Op Thunderbolt is that initially the player is left without a gun-sight, making aiming very difficult indeed, but when the laser device is found all is soon rectified and the action can really get going. A superb conversion which has lost absolutely none of its appeal and is one of the best budget re-releases to date.

(AXSHUDI GAME OF THE MONTH Z-OUT » s a budget release, this is
an absolute steal.
• •Rainbow Arts' five-stage blaster nicks ideas from virtually
every shoot 'em up ever released, but combines Rainbow Arts'
typical polish and presentation with utterly addictive
gameplay, raising it above the competition. It’s back to the
R-Type-style gameplay, as the levels unveil their Gigeresque
aliens and underwater creatures, with all the usual beam
weapons and missiles you'd expect to see. However, whereas R-
Type stuck to one pattern, by borrowing ideas from other
blasters, larger space ships appear and must be blasted bit by
bit, and the enemy attack waves attack in manners more
accustomed to the likes of Xenon II and Scramble. Add to this
some of the most breath-taking graphics the Amiga has seen, and
it is the final cherry on an already succulent cake. Everything
about Z-Out is brilliant: it’s fast, it's graphically superb,
and it's only eight quid! Buy it today and do yourself a
favour.
GAME OF THE MONTH FOUR-VWEDMVI CHART ATTACK Gremlin enter the compilation fray with an odd mixture of driving, platform and shoot 'em up games.
Opening with the brilliant Lotus, the pack then hits further heights with U.S Gold’s excellent Ghouls'n’Ghosts compilation, before reaching average with Millenium’s James Pond and Gremlin's Venus. There's nothing really wrong with the latter two, and both are playable little numbers, but neither can really claim to sustain interest past the two-hour mark, particularly Venus which is essentially the same all the way through - a predecessor to Pegasus, perchance? However, with the compilation scene fairly bustling with packs up to the standard of U.S. G's MAX and Ocean's The Rainbow
Collection, Chart Attack seems both over-priced and a little weak in comparison.
78% 90530 4 Gremlin's second compilation concentrates on what they have been primarily famous for recently - the driving genre. Opening once again with Lotus, which needs no introduction, the compilation is completed by the likes of Toyota Celica Rally, Team Suzuki, and Combo Racer. Of the three, I must admit to preferring Combo Racer, as it is a fast and playable racer, which also adds to its longevity with the addition of a track designer. Toyota on the other hand bores the pants off me, with its clever but ultimately dull action - proving that different effects aren't enough to add
variety to a game.
Finally, Team Suzuki is a technically-brilliant game which is slightly over-responsive and is also rather fiddly to play. Four- Wheel Drive is an uneven drive which runs out of Juice and is recommended with some reservations.
THE UNTOUCHABLES Once again, Ocean used their combination of game styles to create a neat package, and all credit goes to Special FX for creating a moody and atmospheric game. As Eliot Ness, leader of the titular band of law- enforcers, the player is left to complete seven arcade sections before Al Capone is finally put behind bars.
Starting in a warehouse, where Ness must locate bottles of booze whilst avoiding the bullets of patrolling hoods, the game closely follows the film's plot as the player progresses. These scenes take the shape of an Op Wolf-style roof-top shootout and a really clever pram sequence, where Ness must steer a pram and its infant contents to safety whilst plugging Capone's cronies. All seven sections play really well, even if the first two are a little too long, and The Untouchables is a value- packed game which deserves to be in anyone’s collection.

Retaining the 'run and jump' action of the original, Ghouls has a larger and more varied play area, with a whole host of zombies, magicians and vultures impeding your progress. The storyline recounts how Arthur the Knight's babe has been kidnapped by
Satan himself, and whisked away to his demonic lair. Armed only with a handful of lances and a suit of armour, you must steer Arthur through the game's six levels until you get a chance to kill off Satan and rescue your girly. This action then proceeds through platform-filled towns and areas, where Arthur can collect extra weapons to aid his progress. Graphically, although they are tiny, Ghouls' sprites are well-drawn and detailed, and the backdrops are of an even higher standard.
In addition, supporting the action are six of the best tunes you’ll ever hear from your Amiga - all of which are courtesy of Tim Follin. A brilliant little game, Ghouls'n’Ghosts ranks as one of my all-time faves, and as a budget release would make an inspired choice.
A though Tiertex's Ca Capcom conversion contains virtually everything from the all singin’, all leapin’ coin- op, it still lacks that certain something to keep the player’s attention. Set in a Russia of the future, Hru Strider must run and jump his way through an evil Tsar’s bio-metallic base, using his trusty sword to cut a path through to the guardian who awaits at the end of each stage.
The levels are varied and interesting, with a large selection of gun turrets and baddies, and the 01 fifi assorted stages take the player through Amazonian-style forests and the wintry wastelands of Siberia. The main plus about Strider is that the game is easy to play, with extra weaponry and powerups adding to the fun.
However, there is a feeling of luck rather than skill as progress is made, and the loss of life is often down to the illogical actions of the aliens rather than the fault of the player. It's debatable if the game will keep your interest for long.
93% KIXX OUT NOW £7.99 77% KIXX OUT NOW £7.99 Taito's coin-op combined arcade technology with a typical Miami Vice scenario to provide arcade-goers with one of the best slants the racing genre had seen
- a good old-fashioned chase. After receiving orders from Nancy,
your Police computer, the player must drive past all manner of
obstacles in order to reach the baddy trying to escape. At hand
are a number of turbo boosts, but time is short and the roads
are very busy indeed. All this leads up to a ramming mission
until the bad guy's car is run off the road. The Amiga version
had virtually everything from the coin-op in terms of ideas,
but the implementation was very poor indeed. The other vehicles
are tiny and resemble bubble cars, and the road wends its weary
way slowly and jerkily. In addition, the same task must be
performed repeatedly, which wasn’t especially noticeable when
playing the coin-op, but is a real drag CHASE HQ 55% here. An
OK conversion at best, Chase HO looks older than John Thaw’s
shirts in an episode of The Sweeney.
THE HIT SQUAD OUT NOW £7.99 Despite its many filled 3D thrills, there's no denying that Voyager is basically an update of the old Battlezone poin- op. Released at the same time as Robocop, Voyager garnered an array of accolades for its fast 3D action, sadly, the repetitive gameplay was virtually ignored. Blasting tanks and planes whilst slipping between your vehicle's two modes is all very well, but in terms of depth it has less than your average puddle. There has been an attempt to rectify the problem, with the inclusion of a tunnel section, but, this too is dull and tired. A playable
game in the short-term, Voyagerwas a visual showcase which doesn't even have that going for it now.
Following their brilliant Rainbow Collection, Ocean gather together three more similar games for a second crack of the whip. The pack contains Dragon Ninja, Double Dragon, and Shadow Warriors, but only the latter makes the grade. Both Dragon Ninja and Double Dragon are inept conversions that are both dull and uninteresting and, in the case of Dragon Ninja, pretty unplayable. Shadow Warriors, on the other hand, is a playable conversion of the popular coin-op which is sadly let down by its companions. Still, with Double Dragon and Dragon Ninja already out on budget, perhaps Shadow Warriors
will be re-released through Ocean’s Hit Squad label. If so, wait until then... W. v. ¦V DOT MATRIX PRINTERS 192 CPS 80 COLUMN

Heimdall creatores, Core Design, take you by the hand and
offer worldly advice to the game’s many problems.
THE SUB-GAMES: CAREFUL WITH THAT AXE, EUGENE... BOAT JUMPING As the aim here is to get the gold to the left of the scrolling boat, try not to waste too much time fighting off the blokes protecting it. The control system is a simple turn and jutnp' affair, so jump to the far left of the screen to the gold, pausing only to kill whoever gets in the way, and then leg it straight back to the right of the vessel. Don't hang around and you'll have no problems at all.
The main problem here is that the wobbly cursor makes aiming tricky. To counter this, simply position the cursor as close to the girl's head as possible, leaving as little leeway as possible.
Then, wait until the cursor is over the rope's thickest point and it should hit it first time. You have ten axes to sever each of the eight ropes, and it is best to hit the two vertical ropes first as their angle makes these hardest to hit.
THE MAIN GAME: SELECTING A PARTY Depending on your success in the sub- Whenever you approach anyone Important, games, or if you opted to ignore them always listen to what they have to say. Altogether, you will be allowed to choose the members of your five-person crew.
A CRASHING BOAR The hardest of the three sub-games, the key to catching the rampant pig is to take your time. The pig will knock you over whenever you get too close, wasting valuable time, so the best way to catch hold of it is to run alongside it and Among the trades available to you are Magicians, Warriors, Druids, and Blacksmiths, and a good balance between strength and magical capabilities should be struck. Thus, when you are about to explore an island, your ideal trio would be two strongmen and a Magician; the former two can then protect the latter as he translates the runes.
On the whole, though, the following selection are probably the best: a Bezerker, as their strength and excellent health makes them invaluable in combat. A Warrior tor the same reasons as the Bezerker. A Wizard, to translate the Runes should Heimdall be killed - otherwise you won’t be able to read them.
Finally, despite any real dexterity or speed, round the party off with a Navigator as they, too, make excellent fighters. He will then warn you about the length of journey, allowing you stock up beforehand.
THE QUEST BEGINS Obviously, with so many puzzles within the game’s three worlds we haven’t got the space to explain every puzzle, but they follow a simple pattern which the following guidelines will help you through: Before you select an island, give all of your gold to one member of your landing party. Then keep this person as the 'banker' throughout the game. If you use another guy to hold all the keys, not only will this save carrying space, but you’ll be able to keep track of all useful objects quickly.
Always collect loads of food, as it is essential for keeping your party alive - it’s also necessary if you are to survive journeys to the further islands. Also, make sure that members of the crew left on the boat have food, too. Keep an eye on the party’s health stats at all times for an early warning of hunger or a dangerous loss of energy.
If it isn't possible to translate a scroll with your current members, DON’T chuck them away. All the scrolls will prove useful, and the one you throw away may be the extremely useful 'Reincarnation' scroll which can breathe new life into a dead hero. If you have several of one kind of scroll (lots of trap disarms, for instance), either leave some on the ship or discard them if really necessary. Additionally, if any of the weapons you are carrying are surplus (do you really need two swords?), don't hesitate to drop the weaker ones.
The space saved can be used for extra spells or food.
When your party stumble across a chest, don’t bother using a 'disarm trap’ *¦ Shown here are the tourney times lor each island.
By recruiting a navigator, you will receive early warning about whether your tood supply will last the voyage.

are more useful later in the game and the energy lost if a
chest sparkles with evil magic or shoots out daggers is
minimal.
As a rule, explore the entire room before you activate any lone floor switches. It’s more than likely that a series of arrows will shoot out at you, costing you loads of energy, so see if there is anything it could alter in the room before risking it. Another basic rule is to be wary when walking past chests.
These are often surrounded by hidden pits which you'll fall into when approaching. Try to skirt around them instead.
Also, try to keep to the edge of a room as pits are generally less frequent here
- there's normally twice as many pits in the centre of a room
than around the perimeter.
Concentrate on increasing Heimdall’s or the wizard's Runelore skills. This is effected by using the potions marked with the rune signs. Some will increase your health and strength whilst others will bump up your Runeskills - either way, use them on the chosen two. As their Runeskills grow, this will make more scrolls available to you and will Swapping between the party members allows for more efficient use of spells and weapons.
Be careful, as some ol the Islands can be entered trom two points.
FIGHTING Only start a fight if your party's health is up to it. This is especially true of Heimdall as he is the most capable character and his loss can wreck your mission instantly. If possible, try to avoid fighting unless you’ve come up against a dead end and you think the opponent may hold the key to solving the puzzle.
This can be achieved by either giving them a wide berth in the 3D section or by trying to run away.
Familiarise yourself with the layout of the fighting screen, too, as the game is played in real-time and energy is lost rapidly. Use the heaviest weapons you have for normal fighters, and save the magic spells for the larger Spiders, Sea Monsters and the like. If possible, though, avoid the Spiders as they are probably the hardest creatures to kill. If a fight is inevitable, wait until your opponent is off-guard before you swipe at him or throw a dagger. This depletes his energy faster and effectively doubles the effectiveness of daggers - the most deadly of all the weapons. Finally, if a
party member is losing badly - change himl That way, nobody is lost for good. • Island 8 begins with your party shipwrecked at the lop ol the level.

Brief Summary of what your program does PLAY TO WIN STRIDER II - U.S. Gold Start the game and type SWIFT. A cheat icon should appear and now pressing E will replenish Strider’s energy, while D will replenish his Robot’s energy.
ARMALYTE - Thalamus Arc's original variant on the C64 classic left a lot to be desired, but if you splashed out twenty-five quid for it here’s how to get a little more for your money. Pause the game with the P key at any time and enter the legend DELTA 3 (not forgetting the space). Ta da!
Infinite lives are yours for the taking... LOTUS II - Gremlin To gain infinite time for this exciting road-racer, simply type TURPENTINE in as a password. The timer will then be set at ten seconds, but won't budge.
Also, if you enter DUX as a password an updated version of the old Atari coinop Carnival appears - this one is definitely for nostalgia fans.
ELF - Ocean This is a massive game, so a cheat was much appreciated. Type in CHOROPOO on the title screen and your little Elf will be the proud recipi-" ent of 99 lives no less. Also, you won't need to buy the Wolf or Hardman potions - just press W and H for them respectively... THUNDERJAWS - Domark Chunderjaws, more like. Still, if you shelled out for this one, just put the mouse in the joystick port, hold down the left button and press 'S'. Follow this by presing the right mouse button, too, and a level skip is yours.
HYDRA - Domark Type in KILLKILLKILL during play. This will activate a hidden cheat mode.
Pressing F will then top up your fuel to maximum and the Return key will cycle through your weapons.
WARZONE - Coro SWITCHBLADE II - Gremlin There’s a hidden game in the code of this successful sequel, and it's activated by typing CHROME into the title screen. This screen will then switch to a rather neat shoot 'em up. By typing Level2 (for instance) into the title screen of the proper game you can skip to any of the game's level. Simply change the number after each stage to reach the required level.

PD Soft, *?** Those of you who were unfortunate owners of an ST, before upgrading to an Amiga, might remember an old Telecomsoft game based on the cult '60s sci-fi show, Star Trek. Written by Mike Singleton, the game featured digitised images of all the principle crew members with an easy point- and-click system used to access the various ship systems. By clicking onto each character, a variety of controls were uncovered. For example, by clicking onto McCoy the medical facilities of sickbay were at your disposal and clicking onto Sulu let you set the course and destination of the
Enterprise. The game never made it onto the Amiga as Telecomsoft folded and the license to Star Trek was lost.
Obviously, Eric Gustafson was quite a fan of the ST Star Trek game as he's taken the bones of the original and designed his own Amiga version of the game.
Everything’s there, including the digitised opening sequence from the show and all the sampled sound effects which run throughout the game. The three-disk game puts you in control of the Enterprise as you undertake another five year mission, this time to recover vital Federation information which has been stolen and secreted somewhere in the galaxy. By guiding the Enterprise around the various star systems, it’s possible to visit the various planets and search for vital clues to the information’s whereabouts. Although this game has been on the PD circuit for a number of years, it's still
terrific stuff and one of the best-selling PD games ever!

Ultimate's Jetpac game, which took the Spectrum world by storm in the early eighties, makes its debut on the Amiga this month courtesy of Marco Bianchi. Jetmen puts you in control of a small spaceman who has to be guided around a screen using his jetpack picking up parts for a space buggy while fending off attacks from alien attack craft. Once the buggy has been built and fuel pods collected, the game begins anew with another, more complex craft to build and so on. One for nostagia fans only!

HAMMERIN' TIME Good rave disks are becoming more and more popular and here’s one of the best. Produced by Extensor, Hypnotic Hammer II otters a meaty beat coupled with some great graphics and strobe effects. S’funny, but if something like this got onto Top of the Pops or the Chart Show, it’d leave everything else trailing in its wake. Hot stuff.
Diskovery PD, Disk D233, ***** HYPklAUTIC JACK'S BACK!
Ol’ plastic face is back! Yep, the idol of millions!!?) Has decided to inflict his particular brand of music on us once more and, to my horror, somebody has already released a sample of Black & White onto the demos circuit. If you’re one of those poor deluded souls who think Jacko’s music is pure bliss, you’ll love it. For those of us who pride ourselves on having a modicum of taste, however, this is beyond death... CLS, Disks B&W 182 ** HAMMER II NOW THAT'S WHAT WE CALL MUSIC... Static Bytes have released All-lime Greatest Hits Vol.B, featuring some serious sonic earbashing by the likes of
Phenomena, Silents and Network. Best ot the lot is Anarchy's Enjoy the Silence, a digital reworking of one ol Oepeche Mode's greatest hits.
17 Bit, Disk 1459, THANK YOU FOR THE MUSIC Mahoney and Kaktus bid a fond farewell to the PD scene with His Masters Noise, a blistering compilation of 100 tunes. It’s taken the guys more than 20 months to cram all the songs onto two disks, but it’s been well-worth the effort. Not everything is an instant classic, and some parts are decidedly ropey, but when the team gel they're capable of quality music.

GROUND FORCE New PD company, Ground Zero, have published a series of quality game disks. Number five in the series has 23 games on offer including such PD stalwarts as Bally II, Tiny, The World of S-Ball, Maze, Missile Command, Slot Cars and RusHour. The last game is a PD clone of the age-old coin- op, Head On, in which the player has to drive a car around a mazelike arena collecting point-awarding white dots scattered about each lane while avoiding a suicidal computer-controlled car.
Qround Zero, Disk G63, **** GOT IT TAPED Sample disks are always great fun and Dennis have come up with a disk crammed full of over 60 brilliant samples including the Flintstones theme tune, HAL 9000 trying to convince everyone he’s basically an A-OK computer and Dirty Harry threatening to blow your head clean off your shoulders. Excellent.

compilations go from strength to strength. Volume II, disk 3,
features Trix, a nifty Our variant, and a more-than-competent
text adventure which has you exploring a strange new world in
search of alien life. There's also a Pool sim which, while not
in the same league as Virgin's Jimmy While’s Snooker, is a
competent ball game. The cue ball is aimed by moving the mouse
in the required direction. This draws out a line radiating from
the cue ball and the overall length of this line determines the
strength of the shot.

Jed , Star Trek, Atlantis, Ring World and Safari obviously give some indication as to the type of adventures each contain, but I'll leave you to work out what
Grungy Towers is all about for yourself. All the adventures are fairly detailed and easy to get in to. If 4* you've never had a go at one before, now's your chance.
Ground Zero, Disk G42, ***** THE RETURN OF CHUCK Just to prove you can't keep a good guy down, Steve Packer has resurrected his Chuck cartoon character for a special festive greeting to all of his many fans.
Nice one. Not available.
French group, Atlantys, have released a cracking slideshow of their members' work. Amongst a massive selection of quality pics are illustrations of Wolverine from the X-Men, those irascible Lemmings, Strider and many other heavily-armed warriors.
Definitely one of the best slideshows we've seen in a long time.

17 Bit, Disk 1449, ***** BRAINSTORM Have you got what It takes to be an egghead? Are you a budding Einstein, Plato. Aristotle or Leonardo DeVinci? Now’s your chance to tind out wHh this intriguing intelligence test program which sets brain- straining questions covering a wide range ol problems, including spatial, logic and observation tests. Once you've completed a section, the computer will calculate your IQ and show how you compare to the rest ol the population. Needless to say, but the CU crew scored well-above average, eicept for Steve Merrett who's still trying to team joined-up writing
and tie his boot-laces.
17 Bit, 1498,*** BUGS IN THE BED The Invisible World takes a look at all all those nasty slime-ridden bugs the size of microscopic pin-heads that lurk in every dark recess. Particularly nasty are the magnifed pics of two-fanged beast- ies that make their nest in the human skin and live of our blood until they become so bloated that they fall off, keel over and die. What a way to go!
Strictly PD, D462, ** 'ZINE SCENE The Amiga is blessed (or damned) with a large number of disk-based mags. One of the best has to be TCS's Scanner magazine. Issue four is now out and features Imploder
4. 0, a menu maker, three Saddam virus killers, a music ripper, a
two-player strategy game, Phenomena's Joyride demo and
assorted features on the A500 Plus, a beginner's guide to
Workbench and lots of news and gossip about everyone's
favourite machine. TCS, **** The Crusaders latest Eurochart
disk is currently on release. If you’ve never come across one
before, each issue is crammed with charts ot all the latest
games and demos and full of news about all the different
groups on the circuit. If you want to get involved in the
scene, now's your chance. NBS, ** Jean-us Pannonius, who works
for Computer Mania, Hungary's premier computer magazine kindly
sent me number 11 of Brainstorm magazine. It's a text base mag
with an entry on almost everything The news section was
especially informative, covering EA’s upcoming Deluxe Paint 4
Plus programme and the new A4000.Put this one on your must buy
list. A Bit On The Side, **** MATHS WIZARD is the Troll's
toyshop which is absolutely stuHed with goodies. Each
correct answer is rewarded with a toy plane, teddy bear,
marbles or other toys. At a' guess, this one's aimed at three
to seven year olds. Virus Free. Disk 2068, *** After my plea
for more educational software, I received the excellent Maths
Wizard from Virus Free. This brilliant program is split up
into four sections. You can either visit a magic Wizard, go
fishing with an EH, ride a dragon or collect a bunch of toys
from a Troll. Each part mixes a variety of sums with some
animated fun. For instance, on one level you're seated on a
flying dragon and, for each sum correctly answered, your steed
advances towards a faraway palace. Even better NU TO YOU
Vertically-scrolling shoot 'em ups are ten-a-penny on the
Amiga. Unfortunately, most of the PD ones aren’t up to much.
Nu, from Virus Free, is set to change all that.
Although the scenario is awfully dichbd - blast off and strike a mortal blow against the evil Tryto empire - the actual game offers a fair test of your reflexes as you seek to skillfully negotiate the aliens' mothership and successfully crush the on-coming battle ships. Virus Free, Disk 2030. *** LIKE CLOCKWORK Never one to shy away from controversy, Demos' regular, Brazzle Atkins, has produced a demo based on the controversial film. A Clockwork Orange. The original movie has been banned in this country for some time, due to its explicit sexual and violent content, so chances are that most
people have never seen Kubrick's acclaimed masterpiece. So, what better way to get around the censor's ban, than a slideshow with images directly culled from the film, accompanied by text taken from Anthony Burgess' novel. Some of the digitised images are a bit ropey, but the overall effect is quite atmospheric, especially if you put a bit of Beethoven on the CD to accompany the show. For more info, write to Brazzle c o Orbis Publishing Ltd., Griffin House, 161 Hammersmith Road, London W6 8SD, *** Now in our Ihinl year of trading. ’ (• denotes 1Mb) DEJA Vli Professional Licensed Software

QUICKBENCH
- SHAREWARE If you’ve ever bemoaned the length of time It takes
Workbench to load, then this is for you. It's basically a cut
down version, which not only loads far faster than usual, but
also makes all commands memory resident. This means that
commands, such as Copy and Format etc, which would usually have
to be loaded into memory each time they’re used, are now
available without having to refer back to the Workbench disk
constantly. This makes the package ideal for singledrive
users as many commands are now much easier to use.
An additional advantage is that Quickbench can survive a soft reset, which means that if you press Cntrl Amiga Amiga, Quickbench will reappear after a few moments. This makes it especially useful when perusing large numbers of PD disks which load via Workbench.
As this is a beginner’s version, some commands and tools have not been implemented, but if there is sufficient demand perhaps
D. lbbotson, the program's author, will write a more complete
version.
Incidentally, Quickbench requires Kickstart 1.3 or higher to run and there's a special version available for Workbench 2 owners: Oiskovery PD, Disk Quickbench **** ADDRESS BOOK Ground Zero, 4 Chandos Road, Redland, Bristol, BS6 6TE.

C - PD C is one of the most popular languages on the Amiga.
Offering the power of machine code, but only slightly harder
to learn than Basic, it’s the perfect choice for would-be
coders to learn. With the appearance of the new Sozabon C
compiler, that possibilty is more likely than ever.
The package comprises all of the programs required to write C programs. These include a text editor, linker, bug checker, disassembler and, of course, the compiler itself. Full documentation is included although there’s a rather childish snipe at Amiganuts buried in there which seems unnecessary. Never-the-less, this seems to be the most complete public domain C package yet available, and demonstrates the spirit of PD very well.
Excellent quality software available to all for nothing more than the cost of a disk and postage!
Ground Zero: Disk U104.
S. WJLG-4 - PD Despite the fact that fractals seem passe to many
people, this disk may be exactly what it takes to revive an
interest, and contains three programs: Mandel Blitz, Mandanim
and Zplot.
The greatest problem with fractals is the huge amount of time it takes to render anything worthwhile. Mandel Blitz attempts make them more accessible as it uses new algorithms to greatly hasten the rendering process. In fact, it is instantly apparent that Mandel Blitz is doing something special as you watch the unusual way that it renders fractal images. Unlike most pack- ages which create their pictures one raster line at a time, crawling down the screen, Mandel Blitz just draws rough lines all over the screen before adding detail afterwards. This really is the fastest fractal generator
I’ve ever seen. It’s literally hundreds if not thousands of times quicker than most of the competition!
Mandanim forms the perfect complement to Mandel Blitz because it animates fractal images.
Having defined the number of frames to be animated, and the exact areas to be used, Mandanim will automatically render and save all of the necessary images. These can then be loaded into your favourite art package for inclusion in your own projects, or to be saved in the compressed .anim format. This program is easy to use, and the results are worth the effort.
The final program, ZPIot, describes its function as being able to ‘Graph formulas based on 4-D complex number planes’. In practice, this means that you can give the program a complex formula, and it will draw a colourful 3D representation of it. I didn't really understand how this program worked at all, but I loved the results. Strictly PD, Disk U312**** HARD DRIVE UTILITIES - pd Hard drive owners will be aware of how tedious it is to make back-up copies of all data on their drives, especially if they have a high storage capacity. Fortunately, there are a number of utilities which can make
life easier, and many of them are grouped together on this disk.
When you make a back-up of your hard drive, you don't want to copy files that have already been saved earlier. By using the Date option of programs such as MRBack-up and Kwik back-up, you can specify only files created after a certain date for duplication. Also included are Fixdisk and Sectorama, programs which are invaluable in helping the user to recover damaged or lost data from either a floppy or hard disk.
Bringing up the rear are DiskPerf, FMSDisk and ClickDOS. ClickDOS is a file copier and mover similar to SID and Diskmaster, although somewhat more primitive. FMSDisk and DiskPerf help to improve the performance of your hard drive, although they're definitely not tools for the beginner. Overall, a very handy disk which may be worth hundreds of pounds to hard drive owners.

PACIFIC PD PRODUCT TEST thd four primary colours. Therefore, it's essential that the page is lined up exactly each time it's fed through the printer. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to achieve the required degree of precision feeding the paper by hand.
A MESSY BUSINESS The colour kits are available in two configurations. For owners who already have a few empty BJ-1 Oe ink cartridges, a refill kit will suffice, which allows the user to fill the old cartridges with coloured ink. This kit includes cleaning solution so that excess black ink can be HANDY HINTS When using colour refill cartridges, Ihe ink doesn't alway llow as soon as you start printing. Betore running each separation, lest Ihe ink llow on a blank sheet ol paper. If there appears lo be a blockage, running the printer s auto-cleaning routine a couple ol limes will usually clear

GREAT VALUE Many Amiga users have discovered what superb value for money the Canon BJ-10e represents, with its near-laser print quality and relatively cheap price tag. Now the printer is even more powerful thanks to a company called System Insight. They produce a colour kit which allows it to print colour pictures which are superior to those ot printers costing five times the price.
Because each screen must be coloured four times, full colour printing is only available using the optional ASF- 6410 auto sheet-feeder; one tor each of Believe it ot. .1 not, it is possible to'get a relatively j inexpensive ¦ mono printer to output in glorious technicolour.
Mat ‘Midas man’ Broomfield shows you how... removed from the carts before tilling.
Gloves are also supplied so that you don't have to get ink on your hands!
Refilling old cartridges, though, is an arduous task, which involves pumping cleaning fluid and then air through them until all the ink-stained fluid has been ejected. On the downside, I discovered that the dried ink inside old black cartridges seems to re-dissolve after a couple of weeks, staining the coloured ink now in the cartridge.
Alternatively, colour kits can be purchased supplying already-tilled coloured ink cartridges. I recommend buying your first like this, but if money's a bit tight, at least buy a yellow cartridge as a freshly-cleaned cartridge may still contain spots of black which taints yellow the most.
ADDRESS BOOK You can contact System insight at: 120 Wordsworth Court. Middlefield, Hatfield, Herts, AL10 0EF.
Tel: 0707 276913.
HOW IT WORKS Printing on the BJ-10e is achieved using the same technique as commercial colour printers employ. A full colour image is created using cyan, magenta, yellow and black separations ot the screen to be printed. These must first be converted to shades of grey, and printed using the Grey Scale option of an art package. Each separation is printed, using the appropriately-coloured ink, and it's the collective effect of these that creates a full colour image.
Unfortunately, this is a very time and labour-intensive process, but for limited use, the results more than justify the effort.
VERY SPECIAL The BJ-1 Oe can print at a resolution ot 360x360 dots per inch (DPI), which is 60 DPI higher than most laser printers. This means that it's capable ot greater subtlety of shading, and can produce a resolution ot colour mixing that leaves all other home printers dead. Even the ever-popular Hewlett Packard Paint Jet is only capable of a resolution of 180x180.
The kits cost £14.95 for a pack containing two bottles ot a single ink colour.
Also included is a plastic glove and a bottle of cleaning fluid. Alternately, you can buy a kit containing all three colours for £39.95.
• Full colour on a mono-chrome printer
• Requires auto sheet feeder
• Available as retills or cartridges
• Very time consuming but the results are brilliant
* **** colour revolution colout prints 1mm mono printers Any
black and white printer can produce full-colour images provided
you can obtain different coloured ribbons for it.
The process involves daUni ceta to yourJlls three straightforward stages, which can be simplified even further if you own the right software.
SEPARATIONS The first stage involves generating the four colour separated screens that you'll need to print later. Every image, regardless of its complexity, or the number of colours it uses, can be broken down into four basic colour constituents: black, cyan, magenta and yellow.
Different colours are created by mixing these four elements in varying amounts. For example, shades of green are created by mixing amounts of cyan and yellow together, whereas orange is created using magenta and yellow.
Although you can calculate the colour separations yourself, it's far easier to use image processing software such as Flexidump to generate the images.
Simply load the required screen into Flexidump and select 'Separation' from the ‘Options’ menu. A number of separation types are available, but the one you’ll need is called YMCK. Click on one of the letters to create a single separation, ie Y for a Yellow separation. I don't know why but K=Black Grey.
• •••••••••••••••••••• NO SHEET FEEDER?
It your printer doesn't have an automatic sheet feeder, or has one that is inaccurate, you can still attempt to print colour pictures: When you feed your paper into the printer ready for the llrst print, make small pencil marks on the printer casing to indicate where the edges should he when you feed it in for consecutive passes. Also, lake care to ensure that the sheet is pushed as lar into the printer as it will go with- ; or bending It. 1 y ensure that every sheet ol | s your printer in exactly the sa A perfect image will then be created.
You'll need to load your original screen for each colour of the process, but once it's finished you can keep the separations on file for future use.
Once a colour separation has been you'll have a screen composed
• of shades of that colour (sixteen : to be precise).
GREY DAYS For the next step, you'll need to convert your sixteen shade colour s into a sixteen-shade grey s When you come to print your: . You’ll be printing using the grey ile option of your art package. Using ; option, the computer converts all into a brightness value, which it then translates into one of sixteen of grey. It then sends this grey i to the printer. If you tried to print coloured separations without converting them to grey scale, bright separations such as yellow would all be translated into light shades of grey for the printer’s purposes.
If you own Flexidump, you can easily convert coloured screens into grey scale ones. Load your image and select 'Balance' from the ‘Options' menu and a box will appear containing six sliders.
Select the 'Saturation' slider and move it down as far as it will go (-15), then click on ‘Draw' and close the box. Your image is now in grey, so save it ready for printing.
If you don't own Flexidump, you can still convert your pictures into grey scale using Dpaint, it just takes a bit longer.
Load your single-colour separated screen into Dpaint and call up the palette by pressing ‘P’. Select any ASH COM 0530 411485 PRESENTS THE POWER WITHIN MAC ROCTEC SLIMLINE DISC DRIVE ONLY £59.95 ROCTEC DISC DRIVE

You'll find that one of them is adjusted whilst the other two remain set at fifteen. All you have to do to convert a colour to its grey scale equivalent, is move the other two sliders until they're level with the odd one out. Then save the screen for later use.
Once you've converted all three of your colour separations to grey scale images, you're ready to print.
Incidentally, the fourth separation (black) is already in grey scale format and doesn’t need converting. All that remains is to make the four prints.
There are a number of ways that you can approach the order in which you print the colours. If you're using ribbon, it’s probably wise to print the yellow and magenta separations first because the ribbons may become stained if you print them on top of darker colours.
If you're using a bubble jet printer, you ought to print your separations according to which require the least printing. The more white on a screen, the less ink needs to be squirted onto the page. Better results are achieved if you print the least ink-intensive screens first. Good luck!
This picture could almost have been printed with just a black cartridge as it's composed mainly ol shades of grey. But what a difference , those little splashes of colour make!

TIPS Even with a sheet feeder, it can sometimes be difficult to line up the paper exactly after the first print. This is due to the paper stretching as the wet ink loosens the wood fibres. [ There are a number of ways to reduce this effect:
1. Print the separations with the least detail first so that the
paper doesn't become ink- logged too early.
2. Use a heavier weight of paper which is less prone to
stretching. I prefer cartridge paper | because it also holds
the ink better and produces more even colouring.
3. Ensure that the paper is fully seated into the sheet feeder
each time by gripping it firmly | at the top and pushing
downwards.
4. After a couple of prints, the edges of the paper can become
dog-eared. Make sure lhal | you smooth the paper out before
feeding it into the printer.
5. Make sure that the paper guide on the sheet feeder is pressed
as close to the edges ol I the paper as possible. This reduces
the possibility of the paper wobbling' as it's fed through |
the printer.
You may also find that your images come out very dark once printed, and this is usually I due to the black element of the process. You can easily adjust the colour balance of a picture using Dpaint. To reduce the amount of black, and therefore lighten the printed image, load | the black separation into Dpaint and call up the palette by pressing ‘P’. Select any shade o grey, then lift the ‘S' slider by three positions. Repeat this process for every colour in the | palette, and save the screen. Your screens will now appear much lighter when printed.

0: :ui3 EET 5 1BL JOES less as the software incorporates a system of synchronising the video tape to that of the Amiga’s clock. Due to its low cost, the system offers an ideal alternative to tape-streamed and floppy-disk back-ups.
However, as two domestic video players are rarely alike, a restoration via another recorder could cause problems. The number of variables associated with this form of data transfer, such as video head alignment, tracking control, tape tension, motor speed and even humidity, will always make this method of data back-up a gamble.
Comes with all the necessary connection leads to link up An Amiga to a VCR, as well as the all-important control software, a manual and - unbelievably - 160Mb of free PD software (201 Fred Rsh disks) on a video tape. One VHS 240 minute tape will back up around 200Mb on a recorder in Standard Play (SP) mode. The hardware itself, built into the connection cables, encodes the data from the Amiga using 'modem'-style techniques and converts that to an audio frequency and composite video for direct input to the relevant connections of the 'in' sockets on the machine.
The software controls whether the data back-up will include selected directories, archived data or files that have changed since last being backed-up.
Restoration of a hard disk or floppy is also made painach each I title

• Debatable reliability

Isles 50 LOO IMAIL | SEI 0 Whichever system In hardware you go for, and there are many, there is no denying that in the long run disk drives are not enough. Faster data access, saler storage ot programs (in the case of hard drives due to their air-tight casings), a huge amount of storage space held in one place (a 40Mb hard system can store the equivalent of about 40 floppy disks) and Improved, lengthy animations without the need for disk swapping to update data... All this adds up to a vital part ot your computing experience and once you have it you'll wonder how you ever got along
without it.

Having just spent £400 on a new computer the last thing you want to be told is that you've got to pay another £300 for a hard drive. Well, don't be taken in by the sales talk, because there are alternatives and you, too, can experience easy, fast and cheap data access and storage for a fraction of the price. If you're sick of constant disk swapping and huge gaps of silence inbe- tween your favourite game's levels, but don’t have an untraceable Swiss Bank account, then this system could be for you.
The Video Back-Up System’ is an amazingly cheap product from German company Rossmoller Handshake of Cologne.
Rossmoller have been in the Commodore market for ten years and have consistently delivered superb products from memory expansions to accelerator boards. They’ve now come up with the most original budget back-up system yet which makes use of conventional video tapes and household VCRs to store digital data.
Costing about £70, the backup system HARD DRIVIN' If you really want to be able to just sit back and watch your Amiga safely download all its valuables, then state-of-the-art comes with a heavy price tag.
The OP150 streamer from Omega Projects offers state-of-the- ¦ art hard disk back-up for all the Amiga models and boasts someimpressive performance specs, but It’s not cheap. Your £630 buys you the external unit and a first free tape. The data transfer is very quick - 112.5k per second! Tapes are available ®ll i 0r 250Mb formatted cartridges and any industry .
Standard (DC600XTD, DC6150 or DC6250) tapes will be compat- tbie. I he device features an effective media head loadinq mechanism to protect the head from damage during load unload procedures, assuring accurate head-to-tape alignment and quieter operation. Being fully SCSI, your favourite back up software can be used, although a copy of AMI-Back is bundled as the control software (normally costing £49.99). If you have had to back up over 100Mb of hard disc onto floppies, you'll know what a laborious task it is. This system is

Stuck from A to B? Tony Dillon gets on his bike to road-test Complex Computers’ solution.
MOTORWAY MADNESS Route planners have been available to PC owners for Donkey's years, yet, surprisingly, very few have made the journey over to the Amiga. However, in response to all you lost souls out there, Complex’s GB Route is here to plan out the shortest and fastest routes between any two points - and between any three areas you care to mention.
Unfortunately, the package limits you to the main Motorways and A-Road, but presumably this is because memory restrictions stopped them from incorporating the country’s many backstreets.
The package's best asset is its speed. If you were asked to describe the quickest route from Hammersmith to Rotherham, GB Route will have answered before you'd even opened the A-Z. In fact, it can predict most journeys in a mere two seconds. The database is very comprehensive and the user can zoom in at any part, allowing them a closer look at key areas.
OUT OF GAS All route requests are entered via a prompt window, which requires your starting point, destination, and any places you may wish to visit on the way.
In addition, it will also ask how much petrol your car uses per mile, the price ot petrol, and the time you wish to leave.
From here, the broken-down route will appear, including an estimation ot the fuel's cost, and the length of your journey. You can even vary the road speeds
- -- ...w uvvvumi, ao n- Road traffic can be as slow as 20MPH on
a busy day.
Although this is a very handy utility, forty quid does seem rather steep for what is basically an A-Z. And despite the excellent presentation and aforementioned ease of use and speed, the price stops GB Route from becoming a 'must have.’
• Easy to use
• Ouile comprehensive
• Nice zoom facility
• Over-priced for what it does
• Otters print-out option

The latter program is especially useful in promoting hand eye
co-ordination and involvim keys, reading and colour recognition exercises. Each subject is introduced in games which use a Teddy Bea as their central motif and character.
ADDITION The first game has Teddy in a nursery school where he's shown up to nine objects on a blackboard and must choose a number corresponding to the objects on display.
Each correct answer allows one of the Teddy Bear nursery school's inmates to escape to the playground. Nice to see that some traditional school values remain unchanged.
Level two introduces simple addition. As the addition is done in symbols (two frogs plus two balls), the answe can be obtained by counting and, if completed correctly, the next level sees the removal of the symbols so that you liave to work in the more abstract concept of numbers.
Europress Software’s blockbusting Fun School Series continues apace with a fourth collection of programes added to the stable. Garth Sumpter went back to school to access the merits of the new set of disks and awards the marks out of ten.

considi some of the best educational software that money can buy. By disguising inherent educational worth of their programs behind a colourful veneer of the series has captured the imagination ol children and the admiration ol ents alike. With the fourth set of disks in the highly-acclaimed series pois to hit the softshops, we took a look at both the Under Fives collection and more elaborate 7-11 year old educational package.

Level two has some of the pictures replaced with words and you must again try to match the two together.
TEDDY'S KARAOKE I'm afraid that Karaoke is spreading everywhere and even children's software is unsafe from the embarassing pastime. Unfortunately, nursery rhymes are excellent things to use to aid reading
- children can learn the words to a song with ease and a bouncing
ball moves them through the words of the song.
This is an excellent and speedy form of word familiarisation and possibly the fastest reading aid on the disk. Level two has the child tapping out the beat of the song to get the notes to play in time and level three has song breaks where the first letter of certain words have to be entered. I see very little use in this exercise, except for musical chairs, but the excellent first level more than compensates.
TEDDY'S BOOKS The final game in the program is a numbers game. Daddy Ted is reading bedtime stories from a shelf of six numbered books. The child must enter the number of the book he's using by finding the missing number in the series. On level two, the books are not in ascending numerical order and so the task is complicated by having to work out which book is missing. If a guess proves to be wrong then they’re told to guess again, choosing a higher or lower value, emphasising the idea of quantitative value.
On the whole, I found this program to be excellent. The number games, especially Teddy’s Books, are well-planned and reasonably good fun to play, and they teach precise numerical skills and ideologies - counting, relational values, number order, addition and sequence.
These are all key ideas that are put across fairly well and make the software worth its price tag. Numeracy is the strong point of this package with balanced and gently progressive exercises.
Graphics are very large and simply coloured and, although simple, they don't detract from the exercises at all.
• Straightforward
• Fun to learn
• Mouse and keyboard skills encouraged
• Simply the best
• Well-thought out tests
* *** FUN SCHOOL 4: 7- II YEAR OLDS The six programs in this
package cover Mathematics, Geography, History and General
Knowledge. Maths has three separate skills represented in six
different games. Each are a part of an overall plot: that of
Agent Sammy who must track down the thief who stole the ancient
riches and secret papers of King Ftaram. It’s not a great plot,
but the theme is maintained throughout the games, giving some
continuity to the proceeding and a goal for the child to aim
for - an important factor for any child who is likely to ask,
'Why?' And 'What am I doing this for?'
PROPORTIONS This game, as the name suggests, tries to develop the ideas of percentage, decimals and fractions as a way of expressing the relationship of parts to a whole. By showing a screen of objects, and then asking for the ratio of like or similar objects as a sub-set of the whole, this might sound very complicated but the game progresses sensibly throuqh each of the three tests.
In the first, our diminutive secret agent enters spy school and is faced with ten spies. He's asked questions like 'What proportion of spies have green coats?' Little Agent Sammy must then identify the colour of the coats and how many are visible. The answers will be expressed either as a decimal
(i. e. 0.4 if the answer is four out of ten), as a percentage
(40%), or a good old-fashioned fraction - decided either by
the computer or by selecting the type of answer needed
(fraction, decimal or percentage) from the keyboard.
Each correct answer allows a double agent to hand on a secret paper to Sammy.
EXCHANGE RATES The second program introduces the idea of differing rates of exchange amongst European countries. It requires children to use multiplication and division skills so that Sammy can collect » IF YOU'VE NEVER TRIED P.D. BEFORE - YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE MISSING!!

TIMETABLE Once our hero has collected his travel bag and other essential, it's onto the airport. This three-stage game has the child calculating departure and arrival times on either a 24-hour clock or i am pm.
GEOGRAPHY Sammy has to navigate a plane, boat, submarine or hot-air balloon across various continents and oceans in search of clues. The first level asks no questions and is used to familiarise the child with the names of each country for later in the game. By level two, children are asked to identity specific countries. As the levels unfold, the player is then asked to identify major seas, cities, rivers, island and famour landmarks.

HISTORY This game tries to introduce and reinforce the century, decade and year ot famous historical events. A question is asked and then Sammy is moved around a pyramid to break up the stone with the correct date on it to reveal gems and artifacts - sort of grave robbing for beginners. This is well done as each historical date is narrowed down on subsequent levels.
Pitching at just the right level for the age groups concerned. Graphics are crisp but animation is minimal and possibly the weakest area of expertise. Provision is made for control by mouse but the choice of keyboard keys is sometimes puzzling. The space bar, for example, is used to move around highlighted options, when learning to use cursor keys would seem a better idea.
SPY QUIZ Everyone's favourite, no matter what age, has to be general trivia. The only problem here is that some of the questions in Spy Quiz are a little more specific, calling for not only general knowledge, but also mathematics and spelling.
• Still the best educational packaoe available
• Covers maths in depth
• No steep learning curves
• The sound and graphics are unobtrusive to the point ol being
very average.
• Mouse control included hut some key choices are illogical.
• ???

Mat Broomfield explores the digi- jungle.
Wiki thing CREATURE FEATURE Back in 1989, RGB Studios, a small Sussex-based company, impressed the Amiga world with the release of their Real Things Horses collection.
Comprising numerous animated horses suitable for inclusion within the user's own demos etc, the product Was only the first of a successful series of animated studies. Now, in a burst of pre-Christmas activity, RGB have released not one, but two new portfolios: Real Things Safari and Real Things Sea Lite.
ROCK LOBSTER Real Things Sea Lite comprises thirty-one animations, depicting eleven types of sea life ranging from sharks and sting rays to anemones and crabs - it also takes the prize for the most bizarre subject for an animation with its Plankton anim.brCish! Like Real Things Safari, Sea Life contains scenery, demonstration material and a construction utility for the user to assemble themselves, this time illustrating a shark.
The collection is every bit as attractive as its land-based partner, and presents the user with the opportunity to create vibrant and realistic animated scenes. RGB Studios say that Real Things can only be used on j t Amigas with one megabyte or more, and if you want to use it with Dpaint III or IV this is true.
However, if you don't wish to edit the animations and merely want to Incorporate them into your own demos, half a meg is enough if you use a scripting package such as the Director.
Alternately, they can be instantly compressed and animated using Power Packer and PPAnim.
WILD THANG... Real Things Safari contains eleven different animals vividly brought to life in eighteen animations. There are lions, tigers, zebras, wildebeest, elephants and giraffes. And, to complete the menagerie, there are three kinds of monkey.
The first of this two-disk set contains a demo showing a leopard, as seen 1 ' m 3 163 X-BACKUP PROFESSIONAL The essential package for all your BACK-UP needs Now includes HARD DISK BACKUP & FILE BACKUP.

* " through binoculars, prowling through long grass. This
impressive scene immediately indicates the standards that the
user can achieve. The scenery is quite simple, but the animal
itself is little short of photographic in quality. I could
almost hear the grass rustling!
Also on the same disk is something that RGB call a Zebra construct. Despite its technical-sounding name, this is simply a series of individual screens which you can join together to create a running zebra. I'm not a hundred percent sure why RGB included it on the disk, but my guess would be that it's there to give you an appreciation of the process involved in creating your own animations. Whatever their reasoning, the zebra is an impressive showcase.
In the Line & Palette directory, there's an animated lioness which has been created using an extremely stylised fashion, describing the animal in broad bands of light and shade rather than attempting to represent every single hair on its body. This is an interesting way of depicting the beast because muscle movement is highlighted, giving far greater clarity than if it had included much more detail. Although it’s the only animal represented in this manner, it reminds the user to view things from different perspectives.The remaining animals are all stored as anim. Brushes and this means that
they can be included in an existing animation or picture without having to mess around with spare screens, etc. The icing on the cake can be found on the second disk, where a number of scenery elements are stored. These include grasses, trees and some valuable tips on creating shading for complicated shapes.
OUT FOR A BITE... You can learn a lot about the way animals are feeling from the body language they give off.
Like humans, animals adopt different postures according to their moods. Examples of this can be seen throughout the animal kingdom, ranging from the exotic (and often comical) courtship rituals of birds, to the more subtle warning signals given off by dogs and sharks.
Most people are familiar with the way that the hackles (hair) stands up straight on the back of a dog's neck when it's getting ready to fight. Portrayed as vicious creatures in films such as Jaws, most sharks are docile creatures which don’t go out of their way to attack, or even approach, humans. They do, however, have a great deal of curiosity about their environment, and it is this that has lead to a large percentage of so- called shark attacks. Because they don’t have limbs to feel objects that arouse their interest, sharks resort to biting them to find out more, and it's these
exploratory nibbles that are often misinterpreted as attacks.
Mind you, the great white has a bite pressure of well over one ton per square inch, so you don’t really want it to 'explore' you if you can help it!
If you ever find yourself facing a shark, and it appears to bow to you, rucking the skin of its neck into great folds, look out, because this is the signal that a shark feels threatened and is about to attack!
ANIMAL CRACKERS The people at RGB Studios are clearly great nature lovers and proficient arti6ts. Each animation has been lovingly rendered so that, rather than being just a pixellated representation of an animal, it conveys the essence of the animal's nature.
It would be too easy to simply digitise and tidy up a picture, but to capture the sense of majesty and latent power about the animal requires more than just a camera. The crea- =* Where you can stick it.
Viruses, disk swapping, clicking drives, disks which won't back up.
Is there no end to the whingeing of the Amiga user?
At Power, we want to tell you just where you can stick your disks and worries. In fact we will show you. The slot in this picture belongs to our PC880B, the first intelligent disk drive. Insert a disk.
Now you can back up at lightning speeds using the inbuilt Blitz Amiga hardware*, with free software, (even if the disk is Atari or PC) and if your computer has a virus the PC880B will stop it being written to the bootblock of any of your drives, though you can still savefilesasnormal.
When you do not want these features, switch them off and the PC880B will sit quietly, without clicking, pretending to be simply an extra drive.
The PC880B, the only drive to introduce Blitz Amiga, the Power anti-click device and to combat viruses, is only available direct from Power, priced at just £69-95.
We have noticed how pricey unintelligent drives are. Perhaps, it's your turn to tell people where to stick it.
£69-95 Our latest dual drive uses the slimline, ultra low power NEC drive mechanism. This drive takes less then half the power of a normal floppy drive, so no bulky power supply is needed! The new dual drive includes all the features you would expect from a Power Computing drive.
The NEC drive mechanism is able to access high density 1 -44MB disks. While this may not be of use to you at the moment (the Amiga can only access 880K), watch this space for our new'high density1 Interface, on the market soon!

CONCLUSION Although most users are bound to derive pleasure doodling with Real Things, they are clearly capable of much more than that. Forming an exciting addition to an already superb collection, there is a marked improvement in the quality of the images over their predecessors. Additionally, the enclosed manual is full of valuable tips to help the user get the best from them. Although they are a little pricey for such a specific task, Real Things Safari and Sea Life can be thoroughly recommended as an interesting aside.

Tel: 0582 491949 Laser printers offer high print quality at an equally high price. Paul Clarke looks at the Star Laser Printer 4 to see if it offers anything new.
Laser printers offer a cheap source of high- quality prints.
Unfortunately, most laser printers are prohibitively expensive for the average home user although recent years have seen a steady reduction In their prices. The Star Laser Printer 4 is one of the new breed of cheap printers.
The LP4 is capable of emulating an Epson FX850 or a HP Laserjet II, with IBM Proprinter emulation also available as an optional extra. I used the HP LaserJet J driver from the Workbench 1.3 extras disk, and, although this was not the exact driver specified, I found no "problems printing either text or graphics.
All the set-up routines are accessed via programming pads on the front of the printer, alongside which is an LCD display window to show selections as they’re made.
As usual, the printer is connected to the Amiga via the parallel interface, although AppleTalk and Serial interfaces are also available for use with other computers.
FIELD TEST I tested the printer with a variety of packages, including Dpaint, Scribble! And ADDRESS BOOK Star Mlcronlcs UK Limited, Star House, Peregrine Business Park, Gomm Road, High Wycomhe, Bucks. HP13 701. Tel: 0494 471111.
The printer company, Star, have an immense reputation, particularly among first-time buyers, but who knows that the company also makes cut- price laser printers?
LIGHT SPEED?
The Laser Printer 4 (LP4) claims to offer professional-quality printing at a budget price. It prints at four A4 pages per minute (peak performance), and although this may sound fast compared to dot matrix printers, it's slow as far as laser printers go, with most printing at six pages per minute or more.
EASY START-UP Before printing, the LP4 must be configured to work with the Amiga, and as long as the comprehensive instruction manual is followed to the letter, this is a simple task which shouldn't take more than ten minutes.
Professional Page. I was very impressed with the subtlety of the graphics printing, and found that it was also capable of producing a full sixteen- shade spread from black to white.
When printing text from a word processor, the LP4 was more than adequate in terms of quality, although I’m not a great fan of the standard typefaces that are provided with it. Instead of Courier and Lineprinter, I would have liked to have seen Star show the same imagination that they did with their dot matrix printers, and provide some creative-lookinq fonts.
As graphics have to be down-loaded a whole page at a time, the LP4 comes with one meg of memory as standard, and this can be upgraded up to 4MB if required. The machine I used had 2MB, and this was quite sufficient for the most complicated pages that I could find to print. It was when printing pages from my Pro Page DTP package, that I discovered how slow a four-page per minute printer is. Although it can print four pages per minute once they're down-loaded, it takes the same time to down-load a picture to the LP4, as it does to transmit to a dot matrix printer.
When printing a full page, complete with text and structured and bit-mapped graphics, I found the LP4 took as much as fifteen minutes to print a single sheet.
Had I printed the same page ten times, only the first page would have taken that long, with all consecutive ones only taking about fifteen seconds each.
The LP4 is available with or without Post-Script compatibility (which allows far greater image and font manipulation). The standard version costs £999.99 and the Post-Script version £1399.99. The LP4 is not particularly cheap and, if you hunt around, you can find superior laser printers in the same price bracket. Compared to a dot matrix printer, the quality of the output was superb, but pitted alongside other laser printers of this price, the LP4’s was rather ordinary.
It was a luxury to have a laser printer available for a few weeks, but pound for pound, I’d much sooner stick with my Canon BJ-10e bubble jet. It's not as fast, but the ink cartridges are cheaper, it’s easier to maintain, dnd it doesn't take up nearly as much space.
• Far superiorto the best dotmatrix printer
• Not as cheap as it might be
• Very easy-to-use installation routines
• Fairly compact size
• Prints four pages per minute (slow)
• Very quiet ?* AMISPEED AmiSpeed brings you: GUIDING LIGHT

They're sophisticated fonts which move, and there are several sets available. Each set comprises a standard Amiga font and an animated font in the selected style.
The former typeface is a full-colour font which can be loaded and typed through any package which supports colour fonts. The latter provides the user with an entire alphabet, including upper and lower case letters and symbols each stored individually in the anim.

Add style to your video productions with some animated typefaces. Mat Broomfield gets on the move with Kara fonts.
ANIMATED FONTS To create animated words, the text to be animated must first be typed using the normal font. Having transferred this text to a spare screen, it’s used as a template when adding the anim. Brush letters, a character at a time. The process is quite time-consuming, but is considerably quicker than drawing each frame manually. A number of different palettes are also provided, and these will let the user transform the entire appearance of their animations in seconds, effectively increasing the number of fonts available.

JHImSSLhSIL, ,5; If you want to create professional demos or
presentations, The Director II from Right Answers is the
essential accessory. Mat Broomfield rolls ‘em... JACK OF ALL
TRADES There are countless packages which can play music and
samples, show pictures, replay animations or synchronise
sound to motion. Director II is one of the few packages which
can do all of these functions and a lot more besides. As its
title implies. Director II choreographs all the different
elements which go towards making a successful demo or educa
tional business presentation. It can replay animations, in
whole or part, and it can play tunes saved in the SMUS (Sonix)
format. Additionally, it can display screens using a variety
of tade and wipe styles and combine areas of ope picture with
another both statically and as animations. In short, it's a
complete demo studio.
NEARLY BASIC Commands are issued to Director II via a programming language similar to Basic. In fact, many Basic commands are included and the syntax (grammar) THE HEART OF THE MACHINE At the heart ot the package's abilities are special memory stores called buffers. Buffers are areas in memory into which graphics, sounds, music and fonts can be loaded. It's the way that the program manipulates these buffers that makes it so special, though.
There are two basic types of buffer: the chip butter and the fast buffer with further sub-divisions according to what’s stored in them. Understanding the difference between the two can be crucial when creating effects. The blitter chip is a custom chip inside the Amiga which can move blocks of graphics around the computer’s memory extremely quickly, thus making it ideal tor animation purposes. However, the blitter can only manipulate graphics stored in chip buffers.
As you've prsbably guessed, chip butters store their information in Chip RAM. As this is usually limited to a max- is almost identical in some areas. For example, the program supports the use Of FOR...NEXT loops, IF...THEN ELSE statements and many other commands which Basic programmers will recognise.
Some commands have been refined and simplified so that they’re easier to use. In many dialects ot Basic a FOR...NEXT loop requires a variable to be assigned at the start ot the loop (FOR A=6...NEXT A, for instance).
Director II allows you to abbreviate that tor FOR 6...NEXT. Only the number of repetitions of the loop needs to be specified (six in this case). On occasions where the variable name is required, it can be given.
ADDRESS BOOK The Director 2 costs £102.12 and is available from HB Marketing, Unit 3, Poyle 14, Newlands Road, Colnbrook, Slough. SL3 ODX. Tel: 0753 686000.
DICTIONARY AN1M - The standard format for compressed animations. To save memory, programs such as Dpaint store just the differences between consecutive frames rather than storing an entire screen each time.
MIDI - Musical Instrument Digital Interface - The music Industry's standard interface lor connecting computers to instruments.
PAGE FLIPPING - Creating animation by rapidly displaying a sequence ot screens.
SMUS - Simple Musical Score - This is the earliest attempt to create a standardised format lor music scores on the Amiga. Unfortunately, it's very limited in that it doesn't allow effects to be applied to notes (slides, vibrato etc), and triplets quintuplets and tied notes aren't supported.
SPRITE - A user-defined graphic character which has special Amiga hardware assigned to controlling it quickly and efficiently.
SWAPSIES This raises another very important concept which is integral to many of The DirectoTs operations: double buffering.
Although The Director II can manipulate anim. Files, there are occasions when the user may prefer to animate by flipping through multiple screens (page-flipping). Alternately, he may only wish to transform part of a screen by printing small graphic characters onto it.
Double buffering allows any of these operations to be carried out with ease.
For example, there are occasions when a user may need to print a lot of text on to a screen. It's both time consuming and clumsy if the text was printed character by character, so a duplicate is copied to an invisible buffer. The text is then printed onto this buffer, which is only displayed once all the text is in position, thus making the whole process appear instantaneous and much more professional. Invisible buffers can also be used for image processing purposes, perhaps taking the currently displayed screen and altering its palette to create night-time or negative effects.
Imum of 2Mb, even on powerful Amigas, careful management is sometimes required to create an effec-.
Tive program. Fast buffers use Fast RAM (often referred to as expansion RAM) as their store.
Information stored in fast buffers can't be acted upon by the blitter unless it's transferred into chip buffers first.
WIPE OUT The DirectoTs moslbasic use is for creating slideshows. However, even in this capacity it offers far more options than other construction packages. Using the Wipe, Fade, and Dissolve commands, screens can be made to disintegrate pixel by pixel or even to slide on and off the screen in several directions.
There are various fade modes including one where all colour gradually drains from a screen or smoothly changes from the palette of one screen to that of another.
Slideshows can be designed which either display new screens after a period of time, or respond to user input such as ¦ mmm ijm$ b iiD nji ujjcM sraraw Vqr,worm .w

- --- LdilJdiiJj ¦ mouse clicks or key presses to activate screen
changes. By extending this principle a little further,
tull-screen animation can be generated which rapidly displays
sequential screens at a rate of up to about 20 per second.
Sprites can also be manipulated, offering yet another way to
generate animations. Also, these sprites can be moved freely
over any screen buffer regardless of whether they are visible.
Director II can replay any IFF or SMUS samples, allowing the possibility of adding atmospheric sound effects.
Although the package can also replay music modules, it only deals with data stored in the outdated SMUS format.
Programs such as Sonlx and Deluxe Music Construction Set are capable of generating these files, but the quality of music is very limited compared to recent software such as MED. Having said that, it does allow the execution of CLI commands so there's no reason why you couldn't play a MED or Soundtracker tune in this manner.
Unfortunately, if you choose to load non-SMUS modules, you’ll miss out on one of Director Its most exciting features: audio-visual synchronisation.
These are a special series of commands which tell the computer to react each time certain instruments are played. For example, if you load a SMUS score containing a drum, you can tell the computer to play a particular animation each time the drum occurs within the tune.
Incidentally, Director II also handles the SMUS MIDI format, so programs can be written which will play any MIDI compatible instruments you may own.
EASY EDITING Unlike its predecessor, Director II is supplied with its own editing software called D-Edit from which you can write, test and run your programs. It’s extremely easy to use, and means that you can move from program to the finished result in virtually no time. D-Edit resembles a standard text-editor in many ways. It includes cut paste options and search replace facilities, however, it also provides direct access to most of the Director's other utilities, including the Library routines. Library routines can be very important when working on a machine with limited memory. They also
provide instructions for some of the Wipe animation effects. If a program doesn’t require these, they are ignored, thereby saving memory. Additionally, you can also add your own library routines.
CONCLUSION Director II is an extremely useful tool for linking together many different types of data and turning them into impressive demds. Whilst it's true that you’ll have to learn to program, the language is considerably easier to master than the likes of AMOS Basic.
It's greatest failing is its inability to directly support MED or Soundtracker- style scores, which becomes especially irritating when sound-to-graphics synchronisation is required. It’s by no means cheap, but it could be the tool that finally allows many people to write their own demos.
VERDICT
• Very powerful sound & graphic produc tion language
• Allows sound and animation synchro nisation
• Only supports SMUS music scores
• Quick and easy to learn
• Quite expensive
* ** SPEEDY SLIDESHOW To demonstrate how easy Director II is to
use, here’s a quick slideshow program. The line numbers (1-8)
are for reference only and don't form part ot the program: 1
LOAD 1 "Picturel* 2 LOAD 2 -Picture2- 3 :start 4 DISPLAY 1 5
PAUSE 10 6 DISPLAY 2 7 PAUSE 10 8 GOTO start The program loads
a screen and displays it for one second before loading
another screen and displaying that for a second. It then loops
around and starts again. Here’s how It works: 1 LOAD 1
"Picturel ’ - This loads a screen called Pcturel into memory
buffer 2 LOAD 2 "Picture2” - This loads Picture2 into memory
buffer 2.
3 :start - This is known as a label. It's simply a marker so that you can refer to that part of the program.
See line 8.
4 DISPLAY 1 - This displays the contents ot buffer 1 (picturel ) on the screen.
5 PAUSE 10 - Makes the computer wait for one second before continuing to the next command.
6 DISPLAY 2 - The computer displays the contents of buffer 2 on the screen.
7 PAUSE 10 - Another one second 8 GOTO start - This tells the program to go to the line labelled 'start' and carry on from there.
The above program requires only the most minor adaptations to produce page-flipping animation. If the pauses are reduced to a tenth of a second, for example, the screens would flash past quickly enough to appear to be in motion. Load a tew more screens and display those as part of the sequence and there you have it: full-screen animation in less than ten lines of program!

MEMORY MAN There's no disputing the tact that animation gobOles up memory - especially when coupled with Ray-tracing. To create animations ot any duration using these systems requires either colossal processing power or immense amounts ot time.
For users who simply require 3D representations ot objects, rather than colour-pertect duplications ot them, a package such as Videoscape 3D may be the answer. Rather than attempting to calculate the exact shading ot every point on an object, it uses greatly simplified pseudo-shading algorithms to generate areas of light and shade. Whilst it's hardly 100% realistic, though, these algorithms result in objects which have visible depth and dimensions, and which are rendered in a fraction of the time needed to generate the Ray-Traced equivalent.
The latest version provides a number ot enhancements that add more power to the ageing basic package. The addition of HAM mode support, and new colour codes which add further realism, will doubtless prove to be welcome additions tor people who're familiar with the original program.
SCAPE GOAT Videoscape 3D allows the user to render and animate complex scenes in a fraction of the time it would take using a Ray-Tracing package.
However, the resultant image is appropriately less convincing as a representation of 'real' objects. As a presentation or educational tool, Videoscape 2.0 has some merit, and compared to packages such as Amos 3D and the 3D Construction Kit, it's far more powerful. The animation tools allow 'movies’ to be defined fairly quickly, and the addition of hierarchic motion (which specifies the movement of an object relative to its 'parent') makes very complex animation feasible. Perhaps a little expensive at £89.99, Videoscape is an interesting and speedy alternative to Ray-Tracing.
• Powerful 3D modelling tool
• Better than 3D Construction Kit and Amos 3D
• Easy to define animation
• Provides simulated shading REDUNDANT MOUSE Step the Hght
fan-dango How about a light pen that looks good, feels right
and makes artistry more easy?
Mat Broomfield draws his own conclusions.
Many artists hate using a mouse. Trojan obviously recognised this because their Light Pen can draw directly onto the screen. Made of smart grey plastic, it measures just under six inches, and has a square cross-section with each side approximately 374 of an inch across. It has two fingertip sized buttons mounted close to its tapered end which replace the mouse buttons.
The Light Pen plugs into port two at the back of the Amiga, and co-exists quite happily with the mouse, which can be left in the other port as usual.
Before it can be used, you must run the Light Pen installation software which is supplied on a normal Workbench disk. This can either be autohooted, or activated from OLI once your other software has loaded.
Just point the pen at the screen, and provided you’re within its range (about 7 inches), the onscreen cursor will move wherever you want it to.
The button nearest the screen duplicates the left mouse button, with the other one simulating the right button. I found that my index finger naturally rested on the lower button whilst my middle finger sat snugly on the other one.
The Light Pen mimics all the functions of the mouse, but, warn Trojan, it'll only work wilh programs that use the standard Amiga operating system. Most games and, surprisingly, D-Paint II don't, but D-Paint III and IV, Music X. Pro Page, Audio Master II. And MED are just a few of the programs that definitely DO work with the unit.
KWIK ON THE DRAW The Light Pen is also supplied with a proprietary art package called KwikDraw. It provides a number of D-Paint style options including freehand draw, lines, circles and several other simple tools.
Trojan describe KwikDraw as a simple paint drawing package, but it can still handle all screen formats from sixteen colour right up to 4096 coloured HAM mode.
The pen worked exactly as described, and operated further from the screen than I'd expected.
The cursor didn't seem to follow its tip quite as instantly or closely as I'd have liked, and my arm soon became tired holding it up to the screen all the time. Perhaps I’d eventually get used to it, but I was not as happy with the pen as I thought I'd be.
The driver supplied didn't work with an Amiga Plus machine, so it's fair to assume that it's incompatible with 2.0 system ROMs. This would seem to
• Works perfectly
• More natural than a mouse
• Makes your arm very tired
• Works with most mouse driven programs
• Doesn't work with A500 Plus
• Allows you to use the mouse as well ADDRESS BOOK The Light Pen

This is the only place you need to look if you're thinking of getting a new game or gadget for your Amiga! Every item is described in detail and rated out of five. Don't leave home or pick up the phone without it... Datal Electronics 0782 744707 £59.95 £69.95 (A500 A1500) Programming the Amiga can sometimes be very frustrating when your code causes a crash tor no apparent reason.
The task becomes a little easier with the help of packages such as Devpac 2 or Argasm but your problems don't stop there. With Action Replay II you can now examine your code whilst it is running to see what is happening. Even if your machine has crashed, the press of a button makes it all come rushing back for further examination. You can also load almost any game and examine other programmer's code, look through memory, and save graphic images, play and save Soundtracker modules and samples, even put cheat modes in games .
And, to top it all, you never need to load this wonder widget. You just plug Action Replay into the side of your machine and forget about it.
This is one piece of kit for the Amiga that's almost an essential purchase. Warning!
Action Replay II only works with machines with less than four megabytes of memory.
* **** GENniZER Datel Electronics 0782 744707 £129.99 Using art
packages like Deluxe Paint IV or Photon Paint can be a bit
tricky for some people using the mouse. Now these unhappy
_____s.
Amiga artists can stop pulling their hair out because the Genitizer is a graphics tablet that's as simple to operate as drawing with a pen. Images can easily be copied from paper by tracing around the image. Comes complete with a Deluxe Paint template for easy use.
AMIGA REPAIRS FUG 0733 391234 £57.45 If you've had a fault with your Amiga in the past you will know how much it costs to repair. FMG is the National Repair Centre for Commodore so the work that’s carried out on your machine is the best you will find.
* ** AMOS Europress Software 0625 859444 £49.99 There are a fair
number of BASIC programming languages on the Amiga but
nothing to top AMOS. The icon-driven interface and concise
screen display make it a pleasure to work with.
AMOS incorporates an extensive library of over 500 commands, including complete control of the hardware registers which enable you to perform pixel-perfect scrolling both vertically and horizontally, software (blitter) and hardware sprites, copperlists for rainbow colour bars like in the Turrican II (Rainbow Arts) and James Pond (Millennium) games, and a Soundtracker Noisetracker player. Some useful utilities are included with AMOS for editing sprites, pictures and animations. AMOS runs at such a fast speed that you can produce quality homegrown games.
* *** AMOS 3D Europress Software 0625 859444 £34.99 Almost every
Amiga owner has seen solid-3D Vector images at some time,
either in a Red Sector demo or games like Thunderhawk Core
Design) and Jimmy White’s Whidwind Snooker Virgin Games). The
programmers of these games had to perform thousands of maths
calculations to produce these complex graphics, and, for the
average person, balancing the weekly budget is about the
limit. AMOS 3D is here to help. With the maths already done for
you, all you are required to do is put the lines in the correct
places and devise a game around them.
This is easy because the software is completely icon driven and supplied with a comprehensive manual.
AMOS 3D was written by Voodoo Software, the folks behind a 3D game for Electronic Zoo called Xiphos.
* ** AMOS COMPILER Europress Software 0625 859444 £29.99 For
those who are not sure what a compiler does, it's very simple.
Honest! After writing your blockbuster on AMOS you now have the
option of converting it into stand-alone machine code using the
compiler. Once you have compiled your game it now reacts just
like a normal game and you can start it from the CLI without
loading AMOS. The only problem is it may run too quick to play,
so you will have to incorporate some routines to slow your game
down. Definitely worth a look!
* *** AMNUTS VIDEO VIEWER Licenceware PD Young Steven Spielbergs
amongst you will be delighted with this useful PD package that
creates scrolling titles using any Amiga fonts. A variety of
text wipes and colour fades can be achieved and it's great
value.

presented and includes good descriptions, working examples
and an optional disk including all the program listings.

megabyte machine to play CDTV software. No price fixed as yet,
but expect to pay around £350.

* *** DELUXE PAINT IV Electronic Arts 0753 549442 £89.99 PD OR

here are available from the PD circuit and at a fraction of the

Only just out on the streets, Deluxe Paint IV is alive with fresh icons, faster screen update and a host of new functions including transparency which enables you to draw over a previous picture and still see the old image, Anti-aliasing to remove all those jagged edges, metamorph from one object to another and colour mixing to find that perfect shade.

Using Master Sound there are no limits to the achievable sounds.

* * Hewlet Packard £999 High cost colour printer that prints out
at 180 dots per inch. Despite its high resolution it can't

poor quality of pictures it produces so spend your money
elsewhere.

Dodgy ALIEN BREED buyers guide Welcome to the pleasure dome!
Sit back, relax and read through the definitive guide to the greatest and latest games available today... Team 17 £24.99 Shoot'em-up Similar in play style to Gauntlet but enhanced by exceptional audio video delivery. Inspired by the imaginative Ridley Scott movie. Requires one megabyte ot memory.
?*** AMNIOS Psygnosls £25.99 Shoot’em- up Playable eight-way scrolling shooter utilising ideas pioneered by classic arcade games like Asteroids and Defender. Weird and wonderful backdrops and sprites.
* ** ARMOUR- GEDDON Psygnosls £25.99 Arcade Simulation Chance to
drive or fly six different types of vehicle in a futuristic
fusion of simulation, strategy and shoot'em-up.
Full marks go to Psygnosis for this first foray into the • genre. Scores over the cult classic Carrier Command from Realtime Games Rainbird.
* *** BARBARIAN II • Psygnosls £25.99 Arcade Adventure Hegor the
Horrible is back in a hacker slasher which, unfortunately,
doesn't live up to the Shadow of the Beast style of
presentation.
* * BATTLE COMMAND Ocean £24.99 Arcade Simulation Blend of sci-fi
shoot 'em-up and strategy from Realtime Games of Carrier
Command fame. Advanced 3D graphics and a plethora of missions.
* ?* BIRDS OF PREY Electronic Arts £34.99 Flight Simulation
Featuring dozens of planes including the hi-tech B-2 Stealth
Bomber, Boeing 747 and the Hercules transport craft and based
around an East West conflict, Birds of Prey is one of the
finest flight sims ever. Some of the more manoeuverable planes
are a little hard to control, but the game incorporates a
useful auto pilot system that will fly you to the various
missions before you take over. Great.
* **** BLUES BROTHERS Titus £25.99 Platform Fans of the cult '70s
film will really get a kick out of this game. Sparkling sprite
animation of the two main characters come complete with a
crazy backdrop full of traps and unexpected bonuses.
* ?** CADAVER Imageworks £24.99 Arcade Adventure Pays homage to
the outstanding isometric-3D games produced by Ultimate in
the Golden Age of Arcade Adventures. The Bitmap Brothers pack
the five levels with quality puzzles and graphics. If only
they'd added a bit more action, too.
?** CAPTIVE Mlndscape £24.99 Role Playing Game Veteran programmer Tony Crowther's ‘Dungeon Master in space' has an almost infinite number of levels and a sometimes bewildering array of collectible gadgetry.
* *** CENTURION: DEFENDER OF ROME Electronic Arts £24.99 Arcade
Strategy The creative force behind the legendary Defender of
the Crown turns his attention to the Roman Empire.
Command legionnaires on the battlefield, construct a fleet of boats, catch a gladiator show, and try to seduce Cleopatra. Carry on, gamersl
* ** CHAMPION OF THE RAJ Mirrorsoft £25.99 Arcade Strategy Catch
the laughable Captain Pugwash animation in Level 9's answer to
those Cinemaware 'Interactive Movies' like Defender of the
Crown and It Came from the Desert. Somewhere along the line
that whole affair falls flat... about 23 seconds after
inserting the disk, in fact.
* CHUCK ROCK Core Design £24.99 Platform Prehistoric lager lout
travels through five levels made of jungles, caves, underwater
passages and ice chambers before a finale in the dinosaur's
graveyard. Brilliant animation of some crazy creatures. A bit
too easy to complete. Ungabunga!
* *** for'aecorpse DelphlneUS Gold £25.99 Adventure Gripping
stuff from the Parisian software company.
Agatha Christie style murder mystery using the Cinematique system. Full of French flair, especially the black and white 'flashback' sequences.
* *** DOUBLE DRAGON 3 Storm £24.99 Beat 'em up Eagerly awaited
instalment in the series. An accurate conversion of the
coin-op that adds nothing new to the previous games in the
style department. However, there is a slight twist to the plot
and a few puzzles are included in an attempt at jazzing up the
old tale, but its all been seen before. Fans might like it.
* ** DEUTEROS Activision £25.99 Strategy Space opera about as
interesting as playing with a number-crunching spreadsheet.
Still, some people out there will get a kick out of this
follow-up to Millennium 2.2... ** DUNGEON MASTER FTUMirrorsoft
£29.99 Role Playing Game One of the most popular computer games
of all time.
It's your party of adventurers and you’ll fight monsters if you want to. Excellent blend of playabillity, lastability and atmosphere. Downside?
Looks a little dated in comparison to more modern games like Eye ot the Beholder (SSI US Gold) and Capf ve(Mindscape). Chaos Strikes Back (FTL Mirrorsoft) also uses the Dungeon Master game engine.
Requires one megabyte of memory.
* *** EPIC Ocean £25.99 Space Flight Sim Wing Commander on the
Amigat. After years of delay DID have delivered a masterpiece
of 3D space combat warfare. Protect the Federation fleet on its
perilous journey through space and engage enemy fighters or
embark upon eight seper- ate missions. A long time coming, but
worth the delay.
Epic 2 is in production.
* **** EYE OF THE BEHOLDER SSI US Gold £29.99 Role Playing Game A
Dungeon Master clone that is superior to the original.
Takes the idea a stage further by incorporating the feel of AD&D role-playing with improved characters and story.
* **** F-l 5 STRIKE EAGLE II Microprose £34.99 Simulation Another
in the long-line of quality flight-sims from Microprose. Fly
hundreds of missions in six warzones around the world,
including the Persian Gulf, Vietnam and Central Europe.
Probably the best ever Amiga flight-sim... until the next one takes oft!
* **** RETALIATOR Ocean £24.99 • Simulation More an arcade game
than a straight flight simulation, F-29 is brimming over with
fast solid-3D graphics and fair number of ‘bugs’. Contains
dozens of different tactical missions with intense aerial
combat and ground battles.
Runcorn-based developer Digital Image Design is currently working on Robocop 3 and Epic, Ocean's answer to the award-winning Wing Commander.
* *** FIRST SAMURAI Imageworks £24.99 Arcade People behind such
classics as Cybernoid and Last Ninja have produced a very
playable romp. Plenty of beat'em-up action and hori
zontally-scrolling landscape to explore. Beautiful sprites and
backdrops coupled with unusual orchestral sound effects. A cut
above the rest.
* **** FLAMES OF FREEDOM Microprose £34.99 Arcade Strategy Even
after all these years, Lords ot Midnight programmer Mike
Singleton can still cut it. Midwinter II is a technically
awesome 3D adventure with 22 different forms of transport, over
1,000 intelligent characters, dozens of useable weapons and
the equivalent of 1,000,000 square miles of terrain to explore.
The nearest a computer game has ever come to a James Bond
movie.
* **** FLIGHT OF THE IHTRUDER Spectrum Holobyte Mlrrorsott £34.99
Simulation Superior 'game-of-the-novel', based around the
exploits of American carrier aircraft jocks dunng the Vietnam
war Not bad stuff.
* *** GODS Renegade'Mindscape £24.95 Platform Another corker of a
game from the prolific Bitmap Brothers. Highly impressive
graphics complemented by a wide range of multi-layered sound
effects and samples.
Utilises a novel system which makes the computer-controlled opponents respond intelligently to the actions of the player.
* *** GRAND PRIX Microprose £34.99 Drive 'em- up More hot racing
action from author of the award-winning Stunt Car Racer.
Realistic, fast-moving and excellent 3D graphics. With up to
sixteen tracks to choose from, you shouldn't dire of taking
these Formula One buggies out for a spin.
* **** GREAT GIANA SISTERS Rainbow Arts £N A Platform Just to be
trendy, here is the ultimate underground hit.
Nintendo forced this game out of punters reach because of its likeness to the megasuccessful Super Mario Bros series. Praise indeed, pity the game is no longer available on the open-market.
* *** HEAD OVER HEELS Ocean £7.99 Arcade Adventure This transfer
of tlje old Spectrum game has been well worth the wait.
Primitive graphics and sound but phenomenal gameplay.
Hopefully, this could pave the way for adaptions of some of other eight-bit classics like Aliens, Delta, Forbidden Forest, Lode Runner, Lords of Midnight, Park Patrol, Pastfinder, Raid on Bungling Bay, Thrust, and so on.
* **** HEIMDALL Core Design £30,99 Arcade Adventure Graphics
easily up to the standard of Dragon's Lair complemented by
really meaty gameplay, too.The ultimate in arcade adven
tures... brilliant!
* **** HUDSON HAWK Ocean £24.99 Platform This Bruce Willis
'action comedy’ may have bombed at the box office, but Ocean
has managed to produce one of the better movie licenses of
late. Basic game style never really changes but Hudson Hawk
isn't dull so who gives a stuff?
* ** KING'S QUEST V Sierra On-Line £40.85 Adventure Yet another
example of the classy fantasy graphic adventures coming over
from our American cousins.
Attractive to both novice and master. What about that pnce, though?
* *?* IK+ System 3 £9.99 Beat'em-up Definitive example of the
genre from maverick programmer Archer Maclean.
Looks and sounds like a Bruce Lee martial arts movie, incorporating frantic combat and a great sense of humour.
Dramatic sampled sounds and super smooth animation of head-butt, face slap and gut punch moves make the game virtually unbeatable.
Are you a karate kid?
* **** KNIGHTS OF THE Microprose £35.99 Flight Sim Taking the
flight sim world back down to the basics. No radar guided
missiles or electronic HUD displays here just 105 horse power
engines and a machine gun that's prone to jamming! Fly or die
for Bntain or Germany in a bi or tri plane set in WW1.
Probably the fastest sim to date. Even when there's lots going on the ground detail and pace are still retained.
* *** LAST NINJA III System 3 £25.99 Arcade Adventure Will this
martial arts saga ever finish? Concept is looking very long
in the tooth though the execution is bang up-to-date. This
could possibly the best beat'em-up for avid explorers.
* *** LEANDER Psygnosis £24.99 Platform Head and shoulders above
most other platform games, Leander smacks of those Japanese
console games currently in vogue. Easily the most playable game
from the Psygnosis stable but even this can become a little
repetitive. Recommended.
* *** LEMMINGS Psygnosis £24.99 Arcade Puzzle Take command of the
wackiest collection of misdirected death-wish rodents ever
seen your screen. Click on a series of icons to make your cute
little Lemmings perform potentially life-saving skills like
digging tunnels, climbing, building bridges, and so on.
One of those games that will grab you until you've completed it. Psygnosis and DMA Design are promising extra level disks and a brand-new sequel.
* **** LIFE AND DEATH Software Toolworks Mlndscape ¦ £30.99 ¦
Simulation Unique game where you can become a surgeon in charge
of some unlucky patients with gut ache! If only the opera
tions could stretch beyond the stomach... ** IOT Tht
Interplay Electronic Arts £25.99 Role Playing Game Fabulous
interpretation of Tolkien's masterwork with point 'n' click
icon interface and a series of graphic and text screens to push
the fantasy story forward into the 20th centuary.
* ** LOTUS ESPRIT TURBO CHALLENGE Gremlin £24.99 Drive 'em-up
Gremlin's surprise hit of the year! The race game has a similar
look and feel to the C64 classic Pitstop II from Epyx. Features
20 competing cars, 32 cruel courses, precious pitstops and
capital controls. Ultra fast, ultra fun split-screen racing
action for one or two players.
* *** ments, courses and up to 72 holes to play around. You can
play back your shots whenever you like and there are up to ten
camera angles that twist and turn in and out following your
ball during play. Better than the rest and avoids annoying disk
swapping.
* **** buyers guide KHMHffl Gremlin £25.99 Drive em-up
Eagerly-awaited sequel brings eight new stages and improved
graphics. Like Sega's Radmobile coin-op, Lotus 2 also includes
fancy weather effects like rain, snow and, most impressive of
all, fog. In addition, four players can simultaneously compete
courtesy of an ingenious link-up option. Some players have
complained about the feel of this one, so try both games before
you decide.
* *** MAGIC POCKETS Renegade Mindscape £25.99 Platform Overrated
release which proves even the Bitmap Brothers can get it wrong.
Customary excellence in graphics and sound let down by unrewarding play.
* * Mflmbi Krlsalls £25.99 Sport Popular soccer game recently
updated for the new international season.
Features four-player option when used with special joystick adaptor. Arcade and management modes to suit everybody.
* *** MEGALOMANIA tmageworks £30.99 Arcade Strategy Skillfully
crafted action wargame with some super sampled sound effects
and speech. Make your moves and watch hordes of little men run
around the screen killing each other. The boys at Sensible
Software have done players proud with a witty interpretation of
the genre.
* **** PACMANIA Grandslam £N A Arcade Perhaps the finest moment
for the cult video game character. Pacmania is an old but
competent conversion of the colourful Namco coin-op.
Every bit of your screen is filled with pseudo-3D mazes occupied by nasty ghosties out to get our hungry hero.
Excellent choice for younger players. **?
PANG Ocean £24.99 Arcade Puzzle Lashings of addictive playa- billity and loveable laughs.
Even better when played with a friend.
* ** PGA TOUR GOLF Electronic Arts £24.99 Sport Compete against
sixty PGA Tour Pros in four-round tournament play. PGA Tour
Got has three authentic courses (Sawgrass, Avenel and PGA West)
and a bonus fantasy course. Play against one to four human or
computer opponents and see your best shots again via the
Instant Replay. There are plenty of golf games available on the
Amiga, but none of them come close to this classic.
* **** POPULOUS 2 Bullfrog EA £29.99 Strategy One of the best
games ever released. No kidding.
Basically the same play principle as Populous, only everything has been improved to perfection. Try to become more powerful than Zeus by defeating a series of Greek Gods and mythological creatures. State-of-the-art gameplay and presentation.
MmftOPROSE Microprose £34.99 Sports Sim Very strong contender for the golfing sim crown previously held by PGA. Fantastic scenery and an easy to use style of play. Different tournaYou simply cannot be without this game in your collection.
There are two versions, owners of one megabyte machines are treated to even better graphics and sound.
* **** POWERMONGER Electronic Arts £29.99 Strategy From Bullfrog,
the team that brought us Populous, this is another startling
example of how original games can be created by designers who
care. Life as a warlord Is tough but immense fun. Spy on your
enemies, bribe the meek and send in your troops to attack. Get
the peasants to make food or invent something useful like
agricultural machinery or destructive weapons. More of a
'real-world’ simulation than Populous, with an incredible 3D
representation of rivers, hills, settlements, people and
battles which can be zoomed and rotated at will.
* **** MR OF BroderbundDomark £24.99 Platform Arabian swordplay
and hijinks with delicious sprite animation. Looks good, sounds
good and jolly well does you good. Hey Broderbund, what about a
sequel?
* **** iouRTaNN,s Ublsoft £24.99 Sport Who needs Wimbledon when
you can have the 'real-thing' all year round?
* *** ¥8loRo°N4D Microprose £29.99 Strategy Build yourself a
railroad empire in North America or Europe during the heyday of
locomotion. Each territory has its own economy, products and
resources. Players must choose the right train engine and
rolling stock for the job and keep the equipment up-to-date.
Newspaper headlines keep you informed of events which could
bring in new opportunities for budding tycoons. Typical Sid
Meier release with an exhausting amount of depth.
* *** RBI BASEBALL 2 Tengen Domark £25.99 Sport Addictive
simulation that hits all the bases. Perhaps other software
houses should take note of how to expertly adapt a Nintendo
video game to the Amiga.
* *** RICK DANGEROUS II Microprose £24.99 Platform Rick is ready
to greedily soak up your free-time. Beware, the game can be
very frustrating to play at times.
* ?* RISE OF THE DRAGON Dynamlx Slerra Online £39.99 Graphic
Adventure Above average release inspired by Ridley Scott's
Blade Runner cyberpunk film.
No typing involved and it sports some lush location graphics and animations.
Plenty of disk-swapping for those of us without a hard disk.
* ** ROBIN HOOD Mlllennlum US Gold £25.99 Strategy Adventure
Kevin Costner and Bryan Adams have made huge amounts of cash
out of our legendary hero, so why shouldn’t us Brits grab a
slice of the pie? Robin Hood is an epic game, pleasing to both
the eyes and ears.
* ** ROBOCOD Millennium £24.99 Platform Sequel to James Pond
Secret Agent is a real scorcher. Fantastic combination of
humour, platform play and cute graphics. How can one lonely
programmer produce a game of such calibre?
* **** ROBOCOP 3 Ocean £25.99 Arcade Adventure Jtwilgional format
that breaks the'usual mold of film licences. You can take the
role of Robocop in this 3D environment and play the arcade
sections for instant action or follow the course of the full
movie adventure.
Great use is made of different camera angles and the 3D animated sections keep the story moving along in a stylish cinematic manner.
However game-play is lim- mited and the long-lasting appeal is questionable.
* *?* RODLAND Storm £25.99 Platform One of the most playable
games to hit the Amiga in a long time. This Jaleco coinop has
been cleverly brought to life without losing any of the
original appeal.
* *?* SECRET OF MONKEY ISLAND Lucasfilm Games US Gold £25.99
Adventure There’s not much you can teach the George Lucas team
about creating top-qual- ity interactive entertainment.
The Secret of Monkey Island is superb in every respect: gorgeous graphics, seducing sounds and heaps of humour. This swashbuckling pirate adventure has absolutely no typing involved and incorporates a terrific use of dialogue. Requires one megabyte of memory.
* **** gHADOW OF THE Psygnosis £34.95 Platfonn Ridiculously
difficult game- play, most impressive graphics and ever so
overpriced. What else can we say? Oh yeah, Shadow of the
Beast 3 will be here soon.
* * SILENT SERVICE II Microprose £34.99 Strategy Accurate
submarine simulation set in the Pacific during the Second
World War which could do with a dose of excitement.
* ** SIMCITY Maxis lntogrames £29.99 Strategy Influential urban
planning simulation which looks slightly tired against the
recent batch of god games.
Now sold with EA's Populous. SimCity 2 should be here next year.
* ?** SIMPSONS - BART VS. THE SPACE MUTANTS Ocean £24.95 Arcade
Shameful lack of imagination!
This copy of the Acclaim Nintendo video game isn't going to impress anybody.
Somebody convert the Konami coin-op, please!
* SPEEDBALL II Imageworks £24.99 Sport Based on the cult '70s
movie, Rollerball, this game is easily the best Bitmap Brothers
release thus far. Skillful mix of beat'em-up and a futuristic
adaptation of American Football. Possibly the last word in
sports games, but we're willing to be proved wrong.
* **** SPINDIZZY WORLDS Activision £24.99 Arcade Puzzle Marble
Madness was one of the first games to be released on the Amiga,
although we had to wait four years for the real thing.
Fascinating game design.
* *** STAR CONTROL Accolade £24.95 Shoot’em-up This one had the
crew at EMAP Towers hogging the Amiga when it first came out.
Sort of like Asteroids for the 90’s with some spiffy sound samples from TV shows of bygone years. Requires one megabyte of memory.
* * RACER CA" Microprose £24.99 Drive 'em- up Inventive and
irresistible crash ‘n smash race game with realistic suspension
and handling of the hot-rod cars.
Geoff Crammond, the brains behind Revs and Sentinel, produced some fast solid-3D graphics for the narrow suspended, raceways. Grand Prix is his new attempt to simulate Formula One warfare. Stunt Car Racer is due to be re-released on budget.
* **** SWITCHBLADE II Gremlin £24.99 Platform Finally, a platform
slice ’em up which gives those pesky Japanese console video
games a run for their money.
Switchblade II is set across six enormous levels with over 600 screens of tense, claustrophobic challenges. There are plenty of power-ups to collect and a huge variety of uglies to blast to smithereens. Hack-tastic, mate!
* *** SWIV Storm £24.99 Shoot'em-up Kind of like a sequel to the
durable Silkworm. Vertically- scrolling shoot 'em up which pits
your craft against all manner of alien fighters.
Continuous loading during the game means there's always something to shoot at. Why can't all Amiga games be this smart?
* **** TERMINATOR 2 Ocean Acclaim £25.99 Arcade Smash movie hit
of 1991 should make a cracking good game, right? What there is
is well done but lacking in originality. Definitely not all
it could be.
*?
THEIR FINEST HOUR: THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN Lucastllm Games US Gold £24.99 Simulation Thrilling and historically accurate air combat simulation set during the crucial summer months of 1940. Players have the choice of flying eight famous planes including the Supermarine Spitfire, Junkers 87 Stuka and Messerschmitt 109. Lots of special features like a mission editor and replay camera with VCR controls.
Supplied with exemplary manual.
* **** THUNDERHAWK Core Design £30.99 Arcade Simulation Near
future chopper capers geared towards total action.
A mix of slick 3D polygonal graphics and simple easy-to- use controls. There’s no better helicopter sim on the Amiga at present. Another best-seller for Core Design.
* **** TOKI Ocean £24.95 Platfonn Qualified conversion of the
strange coin-op starring a monkey in the leading role.
Marvellous bright backdrops and surreal sprites. The basic gameplay isn't that varied.
* ** ULTIMA VI Origin Mindscape £30.99 Role Playing Game Every
Ultima is a masterpiece in its own right. Nuff said, mate?
Savage Empire and Martian Dreams use the Ultima VI game engine
and are now on their way.
* **** UTOPIA Gremlin £29.99 Strategy Despite a similar look to
Populous, this is really SimCity in space. Can you construct
the perfect place to live? Every game presents a new challenge.
Possibly Gremlin's best game ever!
* **** VIZ Virgin Games £19.95 Sport A far better game than
everybody was expecting. Adult fun which should annoy any of
your prudish friends or relations. Players have the choice of
playing Biffa Bacon, Johnny Fartpants or Buster Gonad in a race
around the streets of Fulchester. Watch out for cameo
appearances by The Fat Slags, Big Vern and Spoilt Bastard.
Roger Mellie provides the live commentary. Fans of the comic
will love it.
* ** WARHEAD Activision £24.99 Arcade Strategy Within the next
fifty years Earth will be attacked by horrible insect-like
aliens from a nearby star system. The survivors send you,
their last hope, to prevent total destruction of the human
race. Challenging space simulator with accurate flight
dynamics and forty progressively tough missions to conquer.
Listen out for the Gary Numan-esque soundtrack during the
intro sequence.
* *** XENON 2: MEGABLAST Mirror Image £9.99 Shoot’em-up Bold Bomb
the Bass soundtrack and silky Bitmap Brothers graphics.
Journey through five stages of evolution blasting everything
that moves (or doesn't). An essential buy at a value-for- money
price. A benchmark shoot 'em up that has utilised every
adjective in the English language for praise.

Karen Neill, Sales Executive Jenny Abrook, Designer Remzi Salih, Advertising Production Esther Rodd, Advertising Production Garry Williams, Publisher strange effect , which I » don’t
* under- '* stand. It happens when I open a directory window,
then load a program.
Mat Broomfield brings you a heap of handy hints to help heal your hurting heads!
If I then return to the Workbench screen and close the directory window that I opened to load the program, the amount of free memory displayed in the bar at the top of the screen goes down I Why does this happen? I can't understand why it costs the computer memory to shut a window. Am I missing something obvious, or is there something sinister afoot?
Michael Dawson, Kemsing, Kent I don't know if what you're missing would be classed as obvious, Michael, but there’s certainly a straightforward explanation to the effects you've noticed.
When you initially load Workbench, the remaining free memory is displayed In the status bar at the top of the screen. This figure is continually revised as you .
Work from the Workbench screen. As soon as you load a program which opens its own output window, that window becomes current, temporarily disabling the Workbench.
Because it's disabled, Workbench no longer updates the free memory figure, so the number shown represents the amount of memory remaining when the program was loaded. When you load a program this figure will remain unchanged on the screen, but In actual fact the program has taken up memory.
When you eventually reactivate the Workbench screen by clicking on it, it becomes current, and finally prints the updated memory figure which will, of course, be lower because your program has taken up some memory.
HARD DRIVE ANIMATIONS I have recently purchased an A500, and I’m
* r * n now aiming to buy a hard i* drive for it.
V I've noticed that Power Computing stock the GVP series of hard disks, however their advertisement says '8MB of Fast Ram on board’. Could you please tell me if Fast Ram is what's capable of running animations requiring large amounts of memory?
Mr J A.Hall, Shelton, Staffs No, Fast Ram is not the ideal type of memory for running animations, but Chip Ram is. Having said that, you can use Fast Ram for large animations, but It’s not quite as efficient as Chip Ram.
The Amiga includes a special chip called the Blitter, which Is very good at moving large blocks of graphics around in memory. Unfortunately, the Blitter can't move graphics stored in Fast memory, so when possible, it’s better to store them in Chip Mem.
When producing animations that are larger than the available Chip Mem, the computer Is capable of transferring graphics from Fast Ram before displaying them. But to do this, it uses the ordinary processor which is considerably slower than the blitter.
For most animation needs, this slowness will not matter as it's only the most demanding of animations that need the speed offered by the Blitter.
Many packages allow you to run animations from Fast Ram including D-Palnt 3 4 and the Director to name but two.
WHICH FILE?
Please help mel I have just completed my B- Tech and I would like to put all my ¦B one or more file disks, but what software do I use?
I need text and graphics, but I also need to be able to mix them together. I've tried Pagesetter but you can't read the whole of the screen.
Please help.
David Hendricks, Peterborough There are three possible solutions to your problem, but each depends upon the type of data that you want to store, and the way It's to be output.
Most database, desk-top publishing (DTP) or word processing (WP) systems are designed so that the information created by them will eventually be output to paper. Therefore, their output on the screen is not of the highest quality. Mind you, having said that, regardless of the package you use, the screen output is severely restricted by the resolution of your monitor, and the computer page resolution.
To create the highest level of detail, you’ll need to work in high-res or Interlace, but unless you own either a flicker fixer, or a multi-sync monitor, the display will appear to flicker and pulsate. If you work under these conditions for long, you risk migraines and eye strain, so they’re not really ideal.
At the top end of the market, you could opt for a professional DTP system such as Professional Page
2. 0. This will allow you to mix text, bit-mapped and structured
graphics on a single page. The page can then be magnified up
to 200 times to enable you to view particular parts in more
detail. The pages can then be output to any dot matrix or
laser printer, and post-script format is even supported.
Unfortunately, unless you own an accelerator or maths
processor, the screen update can be painfully slow as you edit
a document. You’ll also need lots of memory -1.5 megs minimum,
4 megs+ ideally.
Another possibility Is a database such as Superbase 4 which provides you with great flexibility when storing information. However, its nature is such that it's not really suited for pages where the page format changes frequently, le, graphics on one and not on another, inconsistent page layouts etc. The final option would be a WP package such as Wordworth or Penpal. Both packages allow you to Incorporate graphics into documents, and they both have fast screen updates and good readable text. I find that although Wordworth is the more powerful package, it's not very user-friendly, so my
preference would be Penpal.
You can buy Superbase and Pro Page 2 from Cemresott, Units 2&3, Holford Way, Holford, Birmingham, B6 7AX. Tel: 021 356 3388. Wordworth is available from Diglta International Ltd, Black Horse House, Exmouth, Devon, EX8 1JL. Tel: 0395 270273. For details about Penpal contact Gordon Harwood Computers, New Street, Alfreton, Derbyshire, DE5 7BP. Tel: 0773 836781.
TESSELLATIONS Do you know of any programs, PD or commercial on Tessellations, ie shapes which interlock ‘MC Escher' style?
Clifford Allen, Thatcham, Berks No, Clifford, I don't know of any programs on that subject, but I'm also a big fan of MC Escher's tessellated studies, and have often wondered whether such a program might exist. Of course, the computer is the Ideal medium for designing tessellations because the interlocking shapes (and transformations at advanced level), can be duplicated so quickly and precisely.
For readers who are not familiar with the subject, tessellations are pictures or patterns formed by reproducing one or more perfectly interlocking shapes time and time again. MC Escher, a German mathematician, was fascinated by the subject, and tried to develop the concept to its limits.
Far from using simple shapes, his work usually included numerous animals and figures, all interlocked to form the most incredible collages.
It may interest you to know that you can buy a superb book of Escher’s work, containing ALL of his famous pieces, reproduced as full-page plates. It’s called The Graphic Work of MC Escher’ and can still be ordered from WHSmiths for about £20.
If any readers know of software which explores this fascinating subject, please let us know as soon as possible.
JOINING ANIMATIONS Please could you tell me if it’s possible to join two separate D-Painl 3 animations using CLI so that, when played, they appear to be just one -*!_?» continuous » animation? ."V I've tried I to do this using PPAnim, but the first animation plays until I click the mouse-button, then the second one loads and plays. Obviously I don’t want the user to have to press the mouse button at all, and I don’t want a break whilst the second half loads.
If it’s possible, could you tell me what commands and or utilities are required to perform the task? My animations are drawn in 8 and 64 colour modes, and between them total 3000 frames!
Michael Lalor, Stradbally, Ireland A couple of solutions spring to mind, but I suspect that they may be foiled by the difference in colour formats between your pictures.
The first solution requires D-Painl 3 and enough memory to load both animations at the same time. When you load an animation into D-Paint, and then attempt to load a second one, you'll notice seems to be a readonly device I can't see how it would be possible to make an additional option In the File menu called Append.
Append allows you to join one animation onto the tail- end of another. However, both animations must share the same screen, page and colour formats.
The Ideal solution is to convert your half-brite (64 colour) animation down to eight colours. If this means a loss of colour from your pictures, perhaps you could convert them both into 32 colour mode? If not, convert the eight colour one up to 64 colours and save it to disk.
Load the first half of your animation into memory, then use the Append option to add the second half to it. Now when you save the animation, both halves will be joined.
Another possible solution is to use a utility called the Director. The Director is an animation scripting language which can be used to make presentations and sllde-shows etc. It includes a facility called Buffering, whereby you could load the entire second animation into the computer (memory permitting), ready to begin playing the instant the first one has stopped.
You can get more details on the Director from HB Marketing, Unit 3, Poyle 14, Newlands Road, Colnbrook, Slough, SL3 0DX. Tel: 0753 686000.
CDTV PONDERINGS I was thinking about buying a CDTV, primarily for games use. Using my A500, many games allow me to save scores and gameposi- tions, but as the CDTV any kind of save.
At the moment I don't even own a CD player, but I was told that the CDTV can be used as a normal CD player as well. I’d appreciate any information you can give me.
Charlie Streiber, South Ockendon, Kent You’re correct about the CDTV being a read-only device as far as Cds are concerned, but you can purchase memory cards in 64 and 256K sizes, which will allow you to save game information. These removable cards cost £79.99 and £249.99(1) respectively.
As for using the CDTV as a standard CD player: it features 16-bit 8 x over- sampling which means that it's capable of noticeably higher sound quality than most ordinary CD players.
In addition, it can handle a new CD format called CD + G which stands for Compact Disk + Graphics.
When run with the TV or monitor switched on, graphics will be displayed to accompany the music.
ASSIGNATIONS I ve been using a word processor called Scribble', for a couple of years now, and recently I was fortunate jvuio ¦ iv tv , auu was enough to jffr » be given if .. * a hard drive so I copied the entire Scribble! Program disk onto the drive.
Scribble I is actually part of a suite of programs called The Works!, which includes a spread sheet, database and dictionary.
Although Scribble', loads and runs perfectly, whenever I try to access the dictionary for spell-checking purposes, the program asks me for the original Works', disk.
Can this be avoided, because it's very tedious to have to keep the disk to hand all the time? I must say, it seems pointless using the hard drive if I have to use a floppy for dictionary access, which is the most time consuming part.
Peter Vogt, Teignmouth, Devon The problem is that the dictionary has been assigned to the Works! Disk, so that all dictionary access automatically asks for that disk if it’s not already inserted.
But don't worry, this can easily be overcome using the ASSIGN command.
Load the hard drive startup-sequence (It’s In the S directory), and add the following line somewhere near the end; ASSIGN WORKS!: DHO:SCRIBBLE!
This will now tell the word processor to look In the Scribble! Directory on your hard drive (partition DHO:).
If your dictionary is in a different directory, or on another partition, simply substitute the correct path name where I've written DHO:SCRIBBLE!
JFsampler I want to take music from my collection and put it onto computer. I gather that I’ll need a sound sampler, but I’m interested to know how they work. Is there much difference between the types? Which is the best, and what about value for money?
Javid Simpuhr, Singapore A sampler Is simply a device which converts the analogue waveform of sound, Into a digital format which the computer can store and edit.
The sampler 'listens' to the sound, and thousands of times every second it translates what it ‘hears’ Into a number representing the amplitude and frequency. Amplitude Is another word for loudness, and frequency means the pitch of a note (le C natural, D sharp etc).
When a sample Is played back from the Amiga, the computer performs a reverse translation, converting the digital signal back to analogue.
As a matter of Interest, CD players and DAT machines also store their Information In a digital format, whereas ordinary tapes and records use analogue.
The difference between the cheaper samplers Is virtually non-existent, and it's only their software that separates them. Once you move up to samplers costing £80 or more, the hardware Is often capable of a greater frequency response, which means that they can sample a wider range of sounds, from extremely high pitches, to really low ones.
I believe that Audio Engineer, which is currently one of the more popular models, is actually capable of sampling sounds far beyond the range of human hearing!
Anyway, my preference is the excellent Sound Master from Aegis, which works extremely well and Is "very user-friendly. It costs £129.95 so It's not really what you’d describe as budget priced, but It Is admirably straight forward.
In terms of value for money, Technosound Turbo, at about £30, offers the best price-to-features ratio of any sampler and Is definitely worth a look If you're new to the joys of sampling.
You can buy Sound Master from Centresoft who's phone number Is 021 356 3388. For details on Technosound Turbo contact New Dimensions at Brooklands House, Bryngwyn, Raglan, Gwent, NP5 2AA. Tel: 0291 690933.
„ MIDI MUSE I was going to buy a MIDI compatible keyboard so that I can use my Amiga to make 'proper' music. I already own Music-X 1.1, and I thought that if I bought a keyboard and perhaps a drum machine, that I would be set up ready to go.
I've seen a number of keyboards that allow you to select different instruments but they don't let you play more than one instrument at a time, which seems fairly pointless to me.
Would I be able to access two or more instruments at a time via the Amiga or would I have to buy a separate keyboard for each instrument I wanted to play?
Phil Marchess, London In the first place, you’d also need a MIDI Interface to connect your keyboard s to your Amiga, but once that's out of the way you can start considering which keyboard Is best for your requirements.
There are two expressions to be understood when buying keyboards for MIDI use: polyphonic and multl-tlmbral.
In the early years of electronic keyboards, most of them were only capable of playing a single note at a time, which made It very difficult to generate decent music with a single instrument. Polyphony is the ability of a keyboard to play more than one note at a time. Today, most keyboards are capable of playing either eight or sixteen notes simultaneously, and this even applies to the cheaper Casio and Yamaha keyboards.
Although most cheaper keyboards are polyphonic, they still only have the ability to play one instrument at a time. If you’re composing a piano concerto, this is fine, but If you prefer modern music with a variety of instruments, you’ll have to look for a multi-tim- bral keyboard.
Unfortunately, these are quite expensive but they do allow you to create richer and more varied music.
If you actually play keyboards, you'll appreciate the fact that most multl- tlmbral keyboards can be split so that the left hand plays, for example, a bass instrument, whilst the right controls the lead.
If you're not Interested in actually playing a keyboard manually, you might prefer to buy a sound module. These are small banks of sounds which have all the facilities of a keyboard- encased version, but without the expense of having to buy a keyboard as well. They’re also a good way to expand an existing library of sounds.
Cheetah provide a range of professional keyboards and synth modules, and you can contact them at Norbury House, Norbury Road, Falrwater, Cardiff, CF5 3AS. Tel: 0222 555525.
STARTUP SEQUENCES Following your tutorials earlier in the year, I've started trying to make my own compilation disks with some success.
Having looked at the startup-sequence that comes with my 1.3.2 Workbench, I encountered the following command which I don’t understand: ADDBUFFERS DF0:10. Is this command essential, because I haven't included it in any of my startup-sequences and yet the disks seem to work perfectly? What does it do?
Paul Mitchell, Stamford, Lines There are many commands In the Workbench startup- sequence which are completely unnecessary for most disks, and ADDBUFFERS Is one such command.
It's used to set the amount of memory allocated for disk drive buffers.
Whenever you request a directory of a disk, that Information has to be loaded first. Using the Addbuffers command, an area of memory Is set aside by the system for directory information. Therefore the first time you request a directory, it will have to be loaded as usual, but any subsequent directory calls will access a directory list stored within the buffers that were initialised In the startup-sequence.
Although the default size is ten 512 byte buffers (5K), an ideal maximum figure would be 25 buffers
(12. 5K). 8HB up' My Ram expansion includes a battery backed
clock, but apart from telling me the time and date (which I
can check on my wall clock!) It doesn't seem to serve any
useful purpose.
Why is it there?
Stephen Hughes, Eastbourne.
Sussex To most users, the battery backed clock doesn't serve much useful purpose, but to hard drive owners, or other users who regularly make back-up copies of precious data, it is invaluable.
When backing up a 105 meg hard drive, you don’t really want to duplicate files which are already backed-up elsewhere.
Obviously, to make a copy of the entire drive (if it’s full) would require at least 105 disks, not to mention several hours to perform the operation. However, back-up utilities such as MRBackup include an option to backup all files created since a certain date.
ANY PROBLEMS?
If you have any questions of a remotely technical nature, we'll do our best to answer them.

Nlal Benson, Braintree THE IMMORTAL (R3) Alter using the magic carpet to dodge the trolls, give Anna the ring, then walk around the triangle on the floor three times clockwise.
David Colwell, Lydney CADAVER (R6) When you enter Diano’s lair, don't wait, go through the middle door and pick up all the gems. This should boost your mind blast up to 240. Go back to his lair and, when he says he’s tired, use your mind blast and pick up his head.
Paul Derrick, Scotland ROCKET RANGER (R8) To get past the last two guards, follow this guide to the letter and you'll be OK.
Keep your 'dukes’ up all the time. Wait for the guard to lower his fists and punch his face. When the guard flips his lid and sends an array of punches towards you, don’t panic. Keep your guard up and watch carefully for when he does a body blow. Block his attempt by moving down and then give a counter body blow. You should be able to deliver a couple more blows to the face before he flips his lid again. Using this you should beat him with half your life left. It does take a bit of practice to perfect.
Chris Munroe, Middlesex P-47 THUNDERBOLT (R7) Type Zebedee on the Hi-score table.
During the game press F1. The Complete screen should come up.

Ben Stonehouse, Crawley KICK OFF 2 (R30) In mid-match run your finger over the function keys from left to right. S12 or S14 should appear in the top right hand corner. You will now be able to substitute the computer’s goalie and the new guy will be completely useless.
Paul Roffey, Barnsley KICK OFF 2 (R30) How to save penalties: Simply switch on the autofire on your joystick, or repeatedly hammer the fire button. The goalie will save the ball every time.
E. R. Aarseth, Norway HAMMERFIST (R33) Type in TAEHC OT TNAW when
you get a high score and F7 will teleport you to the next
level.
John Kerr, Bathgate GODS On level 2 buy a shield, magic potion, 3 fireballs, 3 stars and buy food with the rest of your money. Collect the 3 gems (fire, ice and water) and collect the world key. Use the shield when you want. Just before you go down the last ladder use the potion and then open the world door.
DON'T GO IN. Before you do so make sure you haven’t got enough energy to survive contact with a creature. Stand by the door ready to leave and as soon as the thief touches you push up. You will have oodles of lives and the score will keep going up and up.
Trevor Faller, Ely TERMINATOR 2 Pause the game then press F1 - F10 and then press fire on your joystick to skip levels. If you want to get out of a particular level press the Escape key.

Dion Willemen, Breda Holland information What's hot and what's rot? Who's climbing the charts and which products have sunk into oblivion? Games, applications and peripherals, they're all given the CU treatment in inside Information... Might as well face it, there's no such thing as a free lunch or completely bug-free computer software. So, what actually are these ‘bugs' in your favourite games and utility programs?
EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW... ABOUT BUGS Any type of computer, no matter how big or small, has to be told exactly what to do, otherwise unforeseen events can occur. Some wag dubbed this phenomenon ‘bugs' and the process of eliminating these mistakes 'debugging'.
The reason so many of these glitches appear In personal computer software is that some publishers don't have the resources to thoroughly test their products before putting them out for sale.
Quite a few programmers get very nervous when asked about the bugs in their software. It’s like you’re accusing them of having acne. Even the laid-back American designers of the Amiga got really annoyed when they tried to get the operating system working properly. This is where the infamous Guru Meditation message stems from. Apparently they would sit down in front of their machines every time a crash occurred and contemplate greater things before attempting any more coding for the day. Otherwise they might have thrown a brick through the screen and we’d be using boring old Atari computers
today!
SOME BUGS PREPARED EARLIER F-29 RETALIATOR «* .)
Yes. We did have some problems with F-29,' admits Phil Aissop of Digital Image Design. Do I have to go into them? Urn, the reason the first version of F-29 was so bugged is simple. We had to rush it out to put the game into the Amiga Games Pack from Commodore. We just weren’t ready and it wasn’t tested very well. You get all sorts of problems if you just sit down in front of your machine and start hacking away. You’ve got to test a section as you write it Some copies of F-29 won’t draw landscapes if you fly off the map, and if you lower the landing gear when you’re outside the game zone, the
indicator will light up but the gear won t actually drop. There are many other glitches in the game - see if you can find them. • 'Our latest game. Robocop 3 for Ocean, had a few bugs but we’ve fixed them now. We had two programmers working independently on the project and this is a common cause of problems - everyone blames the faults on their colleagues. Sometimes things go wrong because of hardware faults with the Amiga. The Blitter Line Draw command, for example, will sometimes miss the last six pixels when moving something around the screen.’ KICK OFF 2 (*-..) 'There are probably five or
six bugs in Kick Off 2,' confirms designer, Steve Screech. Bugs are difficult to detect because it’s hard getting them to happen every time you play. We only found out about the bugs in Kick Off 2 after the game had been released, and then it was too late to do anything about them’.
Perhaps the most noticeable mistakes are that comer kicks are taken at the wrong end and substitutes go missing at half-time. In the Extra Time accessory disk, if you hold the fire button down the keeper will automatically save the ball. Very handy!
'There’s no way to make a totally fool-proof game,’ continues Screech, 'only if you’re going to give it to one thousand testers for a year, or something like that. Nobody has got the time or money to do that. A program like Kick Off 2 is very involved. About one third of the development time was spent debugging the software.’ POPULOUS llUrirMk Art.)
’We don’t have any bugs in our games do we?,’ asks creator Peter Moiyneux of Bullfrog, ‘Oh yes, we dol They’re horrible things. I hate them. It's hard to track them down because they usually only manifest themselves in the product that goes out on sale. Anybody who says their game hasn't got any bugs in it is talking rubbish.’ ‘There are really quite a few bugs in the original version of Populous, but not a horrendous amount. I hasten to add. If you build volcano on a particular spot for instance, then build a house and finally raise the land up to maximum height, it will crash the game.
If 8 embarrassing isn't it?’ ¦If you’re playing a two-player game and a random monster comes up, there is a good chance that the game will crash completely. Actually, there are graphics in there for a random monster that never actually appears, no matter how long you play the game. It’s a rock monster who goes around laying down rocks and grabbing people. He is quite a nice little thing. The funny thing is that this bug has been transferred over to the console versions of Populous.'
POWERMONGER (ikdmk u,| • There are probably a few in there but I can’t remember them,’ swears Peter Moiyneux. ’Erm, there is one but I’ve never actually found it myself.
Sometimes, under some weird situation, your main captain turns into a black box which floats all over the place for some reason. It’s one of those things that happens once in a hundred games.’ THUNDERHAWK (Cr.
'I don’t Blink there are any serious bugs. There was originally a bug in the keyboard handler, which meant the game wouldn’t work on the Amiga 2000 or 3000 series,' declares the programmer Mark Avory. 'Surface-to-Air Missiles won't seek properly because I got a compare statement round die wrong way in Bie program, so missiles don't actually see you on radar. This is a very subtle mistake, you shouldn't normally notice It. My 3D system also makes some objects go oil the screen if you’re really dose to them.'

everyday story. You're on the train, tube or bus and a person
nearby has their Walkman cranked up to maximum volume. Not only
is the noise annoying, but it could actually be causing some
physical damage to their ears. Now the Electronic Industries
Association ot America is trying to make the general public
aware of potential hearing loss by promoting the safe use of
electronic entertainment equipment.

The National Institute of Health in the USA estimates approximately 10 million Americans have suffered some hearing loss impairments as a result
of exposure to high-intensity sound system.
The hazardous zone of decibel levels begins at approximately 75 decibels, which includes items such as average town traffic, rubbish disposals or an alarm clock ringing up to two feet away. High sound pressure levels (loud noises) can damage or kill the fine hair cells in the inner ear. Hearing progressively deteriorates as more hair cells are damaged or destroyed.
Damage to your hearing can be short term (known as temporary threshold shift) or long term (called permanent threshold shift). Short term often clears itself with little recognisable hearing loss while long term damage is often irreversible.
Warning! If you’re suffering from any sort of hearing loss, please consult your doctor.
Qometimes you need to inject Osome visual trickery into your home video epics. If your Amiga • genlock is being overloaded with a stream of special effects, Panasonic has released a Digital Effects Generator to help ease the strain.
‘Anyone who has ever wanted to produce music videos like the pros or give a slick artistic look to ordinary home videos will welcome our newgadget,' confidently predicts a spokesperson, 'more and more amateurs are getting into editing and producing their videos in a big way.'
The Digital Effects Generator can act in unison with your Amiga to create some dazzling video sequences. Apart from adding a hazy or surreal look to the picture, you’re able to reduce the screen image by 75% and place it in any one of nine different positions. Digital Mosaic breaks down the image into hundreds of squares, providing an abstract geometric feel. With the monaural colour effect, you can cast a single tint over an entire image to project mood or a dream-like quality. Individual frames can be rapidly or slowly flashed on the screen for a stroboscopic effect.
These digital video effects can be combined with one another if so desired. Best of all, these effects can be synchronised to the beat of accompanying music.
An audio mixer provides precise level control over sounds from three sources.
DECIBEL LEVELS OF NOISE 0 Lowest sound available to the human ear 30 Quiet library, soft whispers 40 Living room, refrigerator, a bedroom away from traffic 50 Normal conversation, quiet office 60 Air conditioner at 20 feet, sewing machine 70 Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, noisy restaurant 80 Average city traffic, rubbish disposals, alarm clock at two feet (these noises can be damaging under constant exposure) 90 Tube, motorcycle, truck traffic, shop tools, lawn mower (damage may occur in eight hours or less of exposure) CALLING ALL VIDEOPHILtS!
100 Rubbish truck, chain saw (less than 15 minutes of unprotected exposure is recommended) 120 Rock band concert, thunderclap (danger is immediate. This exposure can damage your ears).
140 Gunshot blast, jet plane (beyond the reasonable threshold of pain, any unprotected exposure is dangerous) 180 Rocket launching pad (noise at this level causes irreversible damage and tends to be rather hot!)

Unlimited seasons and ageing players produce a realistic game of fluctuating fortunes.

The appropriate coach will give you his view of the cunent form of any of the players and how they are performing in training. A 40 yard timed run will reveal then sharpness. Wide receivers, running backs, linebackers, comerbacks and safeties need to shine here.
COLLEGE DRAFT. During the 16 match season, plus whatever playoff matches you achieve, you will find yourself praying for a second classy running back or wide receiver, or need to beef up your offensive line (too many sacks). The college draft should be used to find those stars of the future and make sure they're playing for you.
STATISTICS. The statistics centre will encapsulate your team's and your players' season. Total yards, rushing yards, passing yards, kick-off returns, punt returns (and averages for all these), interceptions, sacks... all these are kept for each match, the whole season, for the team and for each player. American Football is a game of stats and we retain that.

It’ll be the best yeti We’ve started so we’ll finish... tune in for the next installment of our Workbench 2 tutorial. ...ON SALE 26TH JANUARY 1992 col©« solution Vidi... No 1 in UK & Europe (Leading the way forward) Get the most out ot your Amiga by adding: "The Complete Colour Solution" The Worlds ultimate creative leisure product for your Amiga. Capture dynamic high resolution images into your Amiga in less
than one second.
And Look No Filters , Images can now be grabbed from either colour video camera, home VCR or in fact any still video source. The traditional method of holding three colour filters in front of your video camera is certainly a thing of the past. Because Vidi splits the RGB colours electronically there are no focussing or movement problems experienced by some of our slower competitors. Lighting is also less of an issue as light is not being shut out by lens filters. Put all this together with an already proven Vidi- Amiga VidiChrome combination and achieve what is probably the most consistant and
accurate high quality 4096 colour images ever seen on the Amiga.
The colour solution is fully compatible with all Amiga's from a standard A500 to the ultimate A3000.
No additional RAM is required to get up and running.
You will see from independant review comments that we are undoubtedly their first choice and that was before the complete solution was launched. If you have just purchased your Amiga and are not sure what to buy next, then just read the comments or send for full review and demo disk.
