BIT ON THE SLIDE Polaroid have announced Amiga compatibil
ity for their CI-3000 Digital Palette. The device, already
popular on Mac and IBM platforms, enables high-quality
slides, prints and OHP transparencies to be produced at
high resolution from any standard graphics tile.
Amiga compatibility is to be provided via a special driver module for ASDG’s Art Department Professional.
Images loaded into ADPro will first be separated into RGB components and then sent one at a time to the CI-3000 via the parallel port. The Digital Palette will rasterize the images onto a miniature HQ 2000 line mono display. A dedicated 35mm camera will build up a multiple exposure full colour image via a set of automated filters.
Included in the price of the unit are all the cables and connectors, plus about a month's supply of film. The CI-3000 is currently retailing at £3950, whilst the ADPro module will be initially only available from HB Marketing, priced £129.95. Polaroid do not sell the CI-3000 direct, but call 07072 78209 for your nearest dealer Panasonic are joining the removable media fray but their soon-to-be released disk drive may not be the boon that it's claimed to be.
The LF-3000E magneto-optic disk drive works with
3. 5 inch cartridges, which is the same size as standard Amiga
floppies but about four times as thick. This is an industry
standard capable of storing around 128Mb of data depending on
how the disks are formatted. The cartridges have a life
expectancy of around ten ypars due to their non-contact
read-write method.
The drive joins a list of others in the market, most notably the IBM MD3125. In essence, most of the drives are very similar in specification, which isn't all that surprising considering they all use the same disks.
Unfortunately for Amiga owners one of the similarities is that all these systems require a SCSI2 interface.

2. 2 and Its ancestors have long been considered to be the only

The latest version may (or may not) include fractional font sizes, irregular tert wrap, graduated tills and Aren support.
Also due for release 'real soon now' is Professional Calc, previewed at the Denver Developers Conference SCALA IN PRINT Owners of Scala, the multimedia presentation titling systems will be finding a pleasant surprise on their doormats. At least Digital Vision hope they will find it pleasant, because they have spent large amounts of money printing 40,000 copies of 'Scala Magazine1 and distributing them to all registered users of their product.
The magazine is, as you would expect, a high quality glossy product and quite large at 54-pages with no advertising. About fifty percent of the content does seem to be preaching to the converted but hidden away amongst the hype there are a few really useful tutorials.
Scala magazine will be published twice a year and will supposedly Keep the reader informed about ‘the latest developments within multimedia’.

two words often used together in promotional blurb.
Usually incorrectly. Nevertheless, this is ' what's promised by Tekno Amiga.
Designed in Sweden it is an introductory electronics tutorial covering everything from wiring up a battery to NPN transistor theory. Using a combination of a hardware ‘designer board', software and a tutorial booklet, the user is invited to build a series of increasingly more complicated projects including timers, sound projects and real-time digital thermometers. Eager users will even be able to write their own software controllers for the board.
Sections of the course are (for the moment) compatible with National Curriculum requirements in Physics.
Tekno Amiga is available at the realtime digitally accurate price of £84.95 from HB Marketing.
ZELORIA - CORE Ever wondered just where all those socks and remote control units go when you lose them? According to Core Design, they go to the mystical world of Zeloria - the setting of their new arcade adventure. Originally pencilled in as an isometric arcade adventure in the style of Heimdalt. Core have instead opted for a sideways-on view. The whole appearance of the game is akin to watching a play at the theatre, with the rooms tapering into the background and playing host to a series of object and manoeuvre-related puzzles. The rather odd storyline behind the game tells of a kid who,
whilst playing baseball, is whisked away from his pitching mound to this distant land. Zeloria is expected for a March April release. BEAVERS - GRANDS LAM The Bumpkin-sounding Jethro Beaver has had his girlfriend kidnapped by the Fox gang, and she has been stashed away in their underground lair. Thus, Jethro must negotiate the four levels of the game, passing through forests, wintry wastelands, and the Foxes’ cave itself.
Beavers is being written by Arc Developments, and sports several ideas of which they are very proud. For instance, to escape danger, Jethro can use his flat tail as a helicopter to lift him out of the path of marauding nasties. COVER GIRL “ EMOTIONAL PICTURES Readers of that pinnacle of quality journalism, The Daily Sport, will be chuffed to Betsy to hear that those rascals at Emotional Pictures have got a Strip Poker game coming I out, and are using the Sport as a licence for it. Cover Girl I Poker, to give it its full title, features digitised pics of eight lovelies who are arranged in
Nurse's outfits, Santa suits and on exotic beaches just for you. Maria Whittaker and a handful of Page 3 models are also amongst the line up. All the women are depicted in digitised form, and some of them treat you to an animated sequence as they peel off. It'll be out in February so get practising. G-LOC - U.S. GolDSega's gut-churner is nearing the end of its conversion time, and Image’s attempt to recreate its many thrills and spills is looking quite impressive. The conversion features as many sprites as the coin-op and the previously-missing ground detail is now being added.
Set over a series of fast-paced stages, the player is given the job of destroying a number of enemy jets ___ before docking with their carrier. After this, it's time to do it again, only with large canyons and the like to negotiate - not to mention the enemy flak! Expect a review of G-LOC next issue. STORM MASTER - SILMARILS DAZE All of Silmarils' forthcoming games will now be distributed in the UK and Europe by a new London-based company called Daze, and the first release is a novel variant on the
a. * -j God sim. In a world controlled by the forces of the
wind, you must use the blustery conditions to bolster your
income and create large armies. The wind can be controlled
using windmills to provide power, and this power can be used
to produce energy to create new weaponry and food. Thus, the
construction of new buildings is your main task, along with
the more mundane tasks of book-keeping, feeding your people
and preparing armies. Set over a number of attractive screens,
there are even arcade sub-games and mystical rites awaiting
your attention.
SPECIAL FX GO IT ALONE... OCEAN LICENCED TO KILL News reaches us of Ocean’s latest acquisitions. The first is for an as-yef untitled film which movie pundits are predicting will be 'the next ET’. Creative Materials, the team behind The Godfather and Line Of Fire for U.S. Gold, will be handling the Amiga version - and Creative’s big-wig, Andy Hicke, is said to be tremendously excited about this latest project. 'We've only got a script and a few film stills to go on,’ he says, ‘but the potential for a good game is enormous’. Apparently, the film stars two as-yet unknown child prodigies and is
'1992's major tear-jerker'. We’ll pass on the Kleenex and details as and when they become available.
Also from Ocean, rumours abound that the Mancunian giant - and not U.S. Gold as was thought - has won the rights to produce a title for this year’s Olympic games.
But despite this flurry of activity on the licence front. Ocean’s line-up for '92 nevertheless sees a major swing towards original products. Although licence fans will be chuffed with Ocean France’s Liquid Kid conversion, original games predominate. First off is Push Over, which sounds a little like Lemmings, and next up is Sleepwalker in which the titular somnambulist wanders a series of scrolling levels. Details on the other forthcoming games are sketchier, but expect a fast, 3D flight sim by the name of Iron Angel, another arcade puzzler called Mister Nuts, a Robosport from Maxis, plus
what Ocean claim will be the definitive Golf game.
Special FX, the development team behind such hits as The Untouchables and Bobocop II, are set to break away from their long-term partnership with Ocean. In an AMIGAble split, Liverpool-based FX will be free to work with other developers and concentrate on a trio of original projects. ‘It was a decision both sides came to an agreement on,' said Special FX head honcho, Paul Finnegan.
However, the Liverpudlian team haven't ruled out following the likes of Core Design and going it alone as a full-blown publisher.
Already several companies are interested in FX's wares, and more details on the projects will be unveiled in CU in the next two issues.
KEVIN'S BACK!
The good old US of A is 'Home Alone II: Alone Again', starring Macaulay Culkin as the kid who, once again, is lost by his parents. This time, the action is set during a trip to the Big Apple, with Joe Pesci reprising his role as the bumbling burglar. Who will be doing the licenced game? The most likely candidate is Accolade who were responsible for the first Home Alone game - as bad as it was - but there are also whispers that Ocean may have a foot in the door, along with a couple of the other 'larger' software houses.
MICROPROSE’S FANTASY Those busy boys at Creative Materials are currently preparing a campaign RPG fantasy game forTetbury-based Microprose.
Said Creative's Andy Hicke: 'It’s becoming apparent that users want more than just Final Fights and Double Dragons these days, and we’ve been looking to get into the RPG market for a while and now seemed as good a time as any.' The as-yet unnamed RPG is claimed to add 'a little something else', although it won't be release until what industry top-nobs call 'the last quarter of '92'.
BUCK OFF... Coming soon from U.S. Gold and SSI is Buck Rogers: Matrix Cubed, offering pretty much the same style of gameplay as ils successful Buck Rogers predecessor - with armies to be amassed and aliens to be blasted. The game is currently 75% complete, and is about to undergo play-testing before if is released in the Spring.
ROADWORKS UNDERWAY With Lotus II riding high in the charts over Christmas, Magnetic Fields are currently writing a construction kit which will allow the user to create their own tracks. Compatible with both Lotus and the sequel, says Lotus programmer, Shaun Southern, 'it's the perfect answer to anyone who moaned about Lotus being better than Lotus II or complaining about the difficulty level.' The kit will allow the user to redefine virtually every aspect ol the game, and ideas which were in the first game but omitted in the sequel - the pitstops, lor example - can now be added.
Shaun and Co. Are also putting together a platform game, 'to get away from cars for a while'.

All Phc by a ft Phil Wolstenholms is one of the moit talented
British Amiga artists working in commercial art.
It'd be a shame to lose his like to the Americans PHIL'S HARDWARE SET-UP Phil uses an Amiga 2000 with accelerator board ami hard disk.
He employs design packages like Imagine. Sculpt 4-D and Deluxe Paint, but he's currently talking to a programmer who writes fractal design systems with a view to adapting code to run on his Amiga.
'It’s something no one else will have and it's going to send me in a new direction. My aim is ultimate animation flexibility. It you look at the Amiga's potential it's enormous - even musically. II they could produce decent software for it, the Atari would be stone-dead.'
¦he explosion in dance music since the late ’80s has been reflected in the boom in design which sprung up alongside it. Yet while much of the music rocking dance floors owes its life to the digital technology of samplers and MIDI keyboards, few designers have taken advantage of the parallel power of computerised design tools.
Phil Wolstenholme is the exception. He has been generating designs for record sleeves for dance acts and labels like Cabaret Voltaire and 808 State, and he's been using an Amiga to do it.
Two years on the dole taught Wolstenholme that working on a low budget was impossible, so, with a grant from the Prince’s Trust, he invested in an Amiga and set himself up in business with the intention of doing something a bit different: ’I was dissatisfied with the current sort of sleeve styles and I realised that producing my own was the easiest way to let people see my work'. The trend for vaguely psychedelic computer graphics had little innovation. So he set to work to shape something altogether new.
And the results are startling. ’What I'm trying to do is get the computer to provide the sort of sharpness of detail which suspends your faculties,' he explains.
Wolstenholme is aware of the hacking demo scene. 'Some of the European stuff I've seen is interesting, but the direction is worrying. It’s a case of outstanding technique but few ideas to back it up. Most programmers are simply excellent mathematicians, but the direction I'm looking at is to work with them and bridge the gap; it's getting to the point where I want to move on, and ten-hour ray traces are no use to anyone.’ Now Wolstenholme is looking to upgrade his system - with help. ‘I could put together something like the quality of Scitex or Quantel for a quarter of the price.' To this
end he hopes Commodore will provide some funding for his work.
'They're getting good publicity for their machines from me currently and I’d like them to offer me a similar set | up to the IBM in-house artist, William Latham.'
Wolstenholme is also looking to progress beyond sleeve design to creating TV work of broadcast quality. The answer though, may lie in taking his skills to the States.
The work of creative houses like Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light And Magic has blown him away. 'I went to San Francisco to see what they're doing there and it's amazing, years ahead. If you use computers creatively in this country you end up producing Domestos commercials. I want to make people think and I'm going to have to go to California to do that'.
To the streetwise, the Amiga can be as powerful a tool as the mixing console.
Mike Pattenden ventures into the underground world of album designer, Phil Wolstenholme, exclaiming... SO WHO DO YOU THINK WAS BEST IN 1991?

JPEG AT LAST ASDG's award-winning graphics pre- production package. Art Department Professional, has substantially increased its uselulness by now accepting industry standard JPEG images. JPEG is an image compression system which gives large space savings whilst still maintaining the data in a lairty accessible lorm. The algorithms give a compression ratio on average about 30 times that achieved in a standard IFF file, with a barely delectable loss ol quality.
The standard is already employed by professionals in Mac and even PC systems, so its arrival on the Amiga should be a boon lor those promoting its use in Desktop Video.
Other features added to ADPro include a greater printing accuracy using WB printer drivers, support tor DCTV and IV24 boards.
01 inleresl lo hobbyists is the inclusion of a text overlay capability.
Overlays wilt use CGIont technology and antialiasing effects, which should provide useful for titling applications.
BIGGER, BETTER, FASTER Those very nice chaps at Amiga Centre Scotland are now handling the new Progressive accelerator boards, which incorporate the latest Motorola chip (the MC68040).
Usually the Motorola 68000 series processors clock is slower than their Intel counterparts bul an Amiga equipped with this 040 board will actually run taster than a 486 PC.
The boards are available lor A2000 and A3000 users, the former coming with an option ol 0.4.8,16 or 32Mb of 32-bit RAM.
Conlact ACS on 031-557 4242 tor more information TEXTURED DISKS & FONTS IN SPACE One of the drawbacks of the advanced texture features on Actlxa's Real 30 Is that you have lo create some realistic textures before you can use them. This can be trial and error, especially if you don't have a super-fast accelerator card.
Racing to the rescue come Alternative Image. Using high-end, expensive equipment, they are working on a wide variety ol texture maps, including different woods and marbles. The ten disk set should be available in March at the less-than- frightening price of £30.
Also available wilt be a set of disks containing 30 fonts. The font disks will contain famous name' fonts turned into 30 objects by RaceTrace. Full alphanumeric character sets wilt be available in Imagine, Sculpt and Sea 30 formats.
DESTRUCTION One of the ideas the company are working on is an aircraft combat sim called Fleet Command. Probably their most exciting project at the moment, though, is the CD-TV version of The Three Musketeers. An incredible mix of graphics, problem-solving and arcade action, this could be one to watch. And for the last two years the company have had their hands on a simultaneous two-player version of Xenon ll XENON ‘The Xenon thing was just a result of boredom,’ says Steve, 'two of the programmers saw a screen shot of the Bitmaps' game in one of the magazines when it was still in develop
ment stages. From that one screen shot they managed to code an entire game that we think is even better than the classic that Xenon II has become.’ Of course, the Bitmaps game came out leaving the two programmers with no course of action but to keep their game under wraps, but they still hope it sees the light of day.
The company’s’ first game will be a novel space shoot 'em up called Strontium. ‘I'm here to ensure that only games of the highest quality pass out through our doors,' says Steve.
The team are currently looking for a publisher, and we'll let you know of any further developments.
Never heard of Arcane Design? Well, you will soon, especially if development manager Steve Isles has anything to do with it. The Crystal Palace-based programming team have only been together for two months but have already got no less than eight games on the go for the Amiga with two of those being for the CD-TV. And there are plenty more ideas just waiting to be developed.
SUPERFAST For a start, they've managed to invent a new code on the Amiga that will rival the fastest that's around. The working title is Lykos Code, which apparently runs as fast as the Megadrive's Sonic the Hedgehog.
Claims Steve: 'We can animate twelve enemy sprites and eight hardware sprites with a total of twenty-one characters on screen at once and still keep thirty-two colours and suffer no loss of speed.’ MOTLEY CREW On the art front, there's Andy Jones, an Amiga addict who's been doing the artwork for Amstrad games including Outrun, Rygar, Tiger Road, and 1942.
Meanwhile, the music is being handled by Jimmy Fredrickson, who may be better known under his pseudonym of Firefox and for his work on Full Contact for Team 17. Finally, the chief CD-TV programmer is Jolean Rowse.

Released. And there probably are a few decent igloo-based coders waiting for a chance to make a few fish for themselves, but so far these have proved to be very few and far between. Until then, as you peruse your local emporium's shelves looking at the WWFs and Godfathers that have been cunningly mixed with the likes of Chubby Gristle, Moonwalker, STUN Runner and Mafdet remember this: crap games never die.

So many games disappear into obscurity. The trouble is, so many ot them deserve it. As you stand in your local Smiths, clutching the thirty-quid you had to kiss your odd-smelling Auntie Olive for, choosing the next addition to your software cupboard is a difficult process.
After all, unless you are a devout reader of CU or keep a general eye on the games scene, maybe you'll accidentally pass up on Smash TV in favour of that yellowing copy of Alternative’s The Munsters- after all, it is one of your favourite programmes. Big Mistake.
LICENSED TO ILL?
Although it's not always the case, most of the games destined for the dumper are licences. Cast your mind back a few months, and you may recall games based on The Famous Five and Moonwalker, and those of you with longer memories may even remember the likes of Roy Of The Rovers, Eastenders and, get this, Treasure Hunt
- I mean, is your Philips' Monitor large enough to cope with a
digitised pic of Anneka’s bum? What were Gremlin, Macsen, and
Enigma Variations on when they gave the go-ahead for these
games?
Whilst conversions do undoubtedly offer the weirdest variations on themes, a lot of companies do fairly well for producing catalogues of completely duff games in the hope that some poor, unwitting sod will stump up twenty-five pounds for them.
SOMETHING FISHY Normally, the companies responsible for these soon follow their games into obscurity, but for every one that disappears, ads appear for a new 'blockbuster' written by an Icelandic fisherman's son who was coding in his igloo, when a wily would-be MD stumbled across him. One consignment of fresh Herrings later, and a deal is struck to publish the game... I’m probably being cynical, but it has to be said that for every mildly playable game released, there are probably three duff ones REALLY WILD THINGS A Hid readers will have noticed our review of Real Thing's Safari in our

Computer games come and go, with ‘classics’ often disappearing as soon as they have « appeared. But there are some games that • totally defy belief, leading Steve ‘Sarky’ Merrett to ask... SOME TO AVOID e otho.

ROSSMOLLER r V HANDSHAKE Welcome to CU coverdisks 26 and 27, absolutely jam- packed with all kinds of hot utilities and fully-playable demos of the hottest games around.
c c J ON YOUR DISKS The CU Collection goes from strength to strength, and this month features demos of two of the hottest games on their way to the Amiga: Guy Spy by Readysoft and EA’s long-awaited John Madden conversion.
And supporting these, we are proud to present Disk Master and Textra - utilities you can’t afford to be without.
Still, what did you expect from THE mag for Amiga users?
I S K S 2 6 - 11 MAND-ANIM If you read last Issue's PD Utilities section, then you may have noticed our high regard for Mand-Anim. The beautiful results gained from this unique utility prompted us to help you to enjoy the world of animated fractals. The program is highly intuitive and extremely fast compared to the majority of fractal generators.
Loading it is almost as simple as using it, just press the F2 key on the main menu.
Also, all the relevant documentation is available via the F3 key. Then, simply pull down the menu screen to reveal the necessary info.
When the program loads, you will be faced with a plot of the Mandelbrot set, and a menu of control buttons along the bottom third of the screen. This picture is known as MA-Base and, if you want to change the base picture, simply click the pointer on the 'Make Base Picture’. A second menu will appear, to the left of which , are the current plot co-ordinates. In the centre is a button marked 'render' above which is an icon representing a mouse.
Clicking on this creates a rectangle over which you control the size and position.
Once in position, click the right mouse button and press the 'render' gadget on the menu. A new plot will then appear and, once you are happy with your base pic- ture click on 'Menu' to return to the start screen.
Next, click on 'New Anim Series' to bring up a file requester. This prompts you for a disk volume and file name under which your animation frames will be saved. Start by creating a small animation of 10 to 15 frames by keying in the number in the appropriate box. Click on the mouse icon and draw two boxes - one smaller than the first over your base picture.
The 'render' button will then plot and automatically save all the frames to the disk you specified.
Animating is simplicity itself. Load up your favourite paint package and set the screen to Lo Res 16 colours. Via the file requester, click on the first of the pictures and change the number of pics to load from 1 to the number of frames you have rendered. When you are happy with it, save it out as an animation file for future use.
Obviously, the more memory you have, the longer the animations will be, but a normal floppy should hold in the region of 2.5 frames.
PICBASE Accessed using the F4 key, this is an invaluable time-saver. If you have loads of disks or a hard drive crammed full of data, and you want to find that picture of whatever you saw months ago, then this utility is for you. The program offers two main features: a picture searcher and a picture database. The picture search feature allows the user to scan through any volume for IFF ILBM files and. Once found, Picbase will display them and ask you if you want to compile the image as an entry in a database. Once loaded, the program will display a menu using the machine's Interlace mode.
There is a superb and comprehensive 'Help' facility huilt into the program which will guide you through all of the program s features, hut more into can be found on the menu screen.
Simply pull down the main screen to reveal all.
GUY SPY Just arrived on the first plane trom Canada, we are proud to present Readysoft’s Guy Spy. After much criticism regarding the lack of playability in past Readysoft hits, such as Dragon's Lair ana Space Ace, the Canadian team have hit back with what they hope will bridge the gap between Bluth-style cartoon- quality graphics and playability. Split into fourteen stages, comprising beat 'em up and shoot-out stages, we have one ot those fourteen stages tor your delectation. Set in the wintry wastes of Switzerland, our demo features a shoot-out set within a moving cable car. Guy is out to
retrieve a series of crystals before the evil Von Max can insert them to power his deadly doomsday weapon.
However, on route to his next destination he has been attacked and cornered by several of Von Max's henchmen. Leaping into a cable car, he attempts to escape their unwanted attentions, but they are hot on his tail in a second car. Controlling Guy, you must shoot each of the henchmen as they appear in the window, whilst avoiding their retaliatory fire.
Guy is controlled via the joystick, with the left and right controls turning and moving him in the required direction. In addition, the fire button prompts Guy to adopt a shooting stance, whilst another press releases a shot at the oncoming henchmen. However, his pursuers tend to move around, so the directional controls must be used to take aim or crouch to hit the lower area of the car. Guy himselt can withstand a number ot hits, and his health is displayed in icon form at the bottom ot the screen. This is the least ot his worries, though, as the henchmen are armed with sticks of TNT and if
they are left tor too long they will lob one into your car. If this happens, then all you can do is wait until your car is torn apart by the blast - effectively 'game over'.
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.
Please note that, due to the size of the demo, our taster is unfortunately minus any sound. However, when the final version is released, the action will be backed up by a David Whittaker tune and numerous sampled effects.
TEXTRA For your delectation and continual use, we are proud to present a professional-quality WP - Texlra. On loading, this useful package throws up a list of what's on the CU disk, and from here you can enter the package. All the usual WP features are there, and by selecting the options along the top of the screen using the right-hand mouse button, you can Cut, Copy, and Paste, and utilise the Find and Replace functions. In addition, you can also select areas of text and change them to upper or lower case at a stroke.
' Several documents can be kept on-screen at once and switched between at any time, and the package also allows you to save your text tiles out under other names or to other disks.
DISK MASTER Copying individual tiles and displaying pics whilst sifting through loose disks can be an annoying and time-consuming process - but no longer. Disk Afestersupports two drives and provides virtually every utility a disk user could possibly need. By selecting your required option from the long list in the centre ot the screen, files can be copied, displayed, viewed or whatever - all at the click of a mousebutton. The utility can also format disks and allows the user to check for viruses and verify disks.
IF YOUR DISK WON'T LOAD?
In the unlikely event of your CU disk not loading, remove all external cartridges and peripherals and try again. If It still won't load, pop the offending 26 271 disk in an envelope and address it to: CU DISK RETURNS, PC Wise Merthyr Industrial Park, Pentreebach, Mid Glamorgan. CF48 4DR They will then test the disk and send a replacement as soon as possible. Ring the PC Wise Helpline for any urgent problems. It's open between 10:30 and 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 tor possible damage caused by viruses which may have escaped our attention.
COVfERDISKS The version we have supplied is the most up-to-date version (3.2), and is widely regarded as one of the best disk utilities released - what’s more, it's yours free!

Across the pitch, with the firebutton sending them into a dive or punting the ball upfield. In addition, when you are in possession ot the ball and are about to be tackled, pushing up on the joystick effects a dive past the next line, whilst pulling down sees your player attempting to shrug off any challenges. All the real sport's rules apply, but when your progress upfield is halted, then it's time for a strategic rethink.
A trio of boxes appear, allowing you to choose your style of move. Before play resumes, a series of these must be selected. For example, if you want to select the left hand box, press fire and move the joystick to the left. Then release the fire button and move the joystick back to the centre. If it’s the centre play you're after, move the joystick upwards and, if you want to pick the right hand play, move the joystick to the right. Once you've made your decisions, play will resume. So strap on your padding and get ready to play the best American Football game to have ever graced the Amiga.
TANK Forget all your coin-op licences and film tie-ins, this is the game that has kept CU and ACE huddled around the office Amigas. As with all the best ideas, Tank is extremely simple and easy to pick up, yet the challenge will last you for ages.
A two-player game, Tank sets the contestants the basic task of blowing the opposition out of the game. To do this, each player takes a turn in gauging the distance and terrain between them and setting the angle of their shot's trajectory and the power behind it. However, with the addition of changeable weather conditions, and randomly-generated terrain, this is harder than it sounds.
Tank is controlled using the mouse, with the left and right buttons used to increase or decrease the power and angle of the shots. Once this is achieved, then pressing the central 'fire' icon sends the shot towards the enemy.
Players take turns, adding or subtracting from their initial estimate, until their opponent is finally hit. It might not sound fun, but you'll soon become addicted.
JOHN MADDEN A stunning success in its Megadrive form, EA in their infinite wisdom have finally converted John Madden over to the Amiga, and we can exclusively show you just how good a conversion it is.
Specially written for CU, our Madden demo contains a special one-off fully- playable ‘sudden death' game between the Madden All-Stars and Minnesota.
The game lasts four minutes, after which the demo will automatically restart, or until the first touch-down.
After the computer has decided who is to start, play will begin and you are given full joystick control over your team of All-Stars. Once in control, you will either play a defensive role or be on the attack, and the usual directional controls will guide your given player's actions SPECIAL OFFER GststtwlCU V 51 w hat other creature can be more sexy, groovy and sharper than the wearer of a CU Amiga t-shirt?

A software package, a video camera and 00 Amiga - end all of a sadden yoa're up there polishing an Oscar. With the right kit, a little patience, and the right advice, you, too can bridge the gap between film and computing.
Take 'em away, Oliver Stone ¦ FRAME THAT GAME Today, in almost every game released, you'll see the results ol combining a skilled graphic artist, video camera and a digitiser... In the arcade version ol Terminator 2, the designers at Williams had unlimited access to a wealth ol material, which was then converted lor the hardware lirst seen and heard in the award-winning Narc.
The game contains over 100,000 trames ol digitised animation.
Listen out lor Arnold Schwarzenegger saying ‘I am the luture’. This is one ol the phrases cut Irom the linal tilm.
Feeding video footage into computer software has become very fashionable in recent times. The reasons are obvious. For a start, it's incredibly easy to do: single frames or whole chunks of movie action can be grabbed and put inside a game. What's more, crafty designers use digitised images as reference materials, creating ever-more realistic images than before. All this can be achieved in a fraction of the time it would take using traditional methods.
Some firms are taking the idea one step further. For the adventure game, Head ol China, Dynamix employed the talents of over eighty actors, make-up artists, professional photographers and costumers rented from movie studios.
Once you've thrown in a script writer, soundtrack composer and producer, the term ‘New Hollywood' sounds plausible after all.
While the theories of importing video into software are pretty well consistent, the actual techniques can differ. Some developers simply transfer scenes from a film and use them as title screens or animated introduction sequences.
Ocean's Terminator 2 is a good example. The disadvantage is that digitised graphics have a unique 'blocky' look to them, which is why the people at Lucasfilm Games used a paint program to retouch the characters in their forthcoming graphic adventure, Secret ol Monkey Island 2.
Once the action was 'in the can’, artists at Lucasfilm selected the best frames and transferred them to the computer. Every single pixel could be changed by the commercial and proprietary paint and animation software at their disposal. Size, colour, clothes and facial expressions were tweaked to perfection. By the time they'd finished, you hardly notice the images were anything other than 100% computer generated.
However, take a closer look as the characters move with fluid, natural motion.
Manufacturers of arcade machines are using video, too. Williams, the coinop company with a string of early 1980s hits, such as Defender and Robotron 2084, have bounced back into town with the first arcade game to fully utilise digi- Used graphics. Terminator 2 incorporates film footage, authentic location backdrops, digitised images of the cast and sampled speech from Amie himself.
‘We’re the pioneers of live action digitised graphics,’ remarks programmer George Petro, ‘This exciting new technology combined with a lot of kick ass software is the main thing that keeps you coming back for more. We’re getting it closer to real life, it's just like playing the movie now.'
State-of-the-art never comes cheap.
T2 - the coin-op cost over three million dollars to make. It's a good job James Cameron, the director of Terminator 2 and Aliens, is a fan of video games. He gave Williams everything they needed.
Hopefully, this will pave the way for coproductions between the movie and games industries in the future.
El MINDWARE Now you, too, can produce video-based computer games, just like those from the software giants... While AMOS is probably the most widespread utility for creating your own programs, not everybody is willing or able to handle the complexities of programming an Amiga. Enter the unimaginatively titled Desktop Video (DTV) from On-Line Entertainment. This particular piece of authoring software has undergone more name changes than we dare mention. However, the small North London firm is using it to publish a steady stream of diverse CDTV software like Psycho Killer, The Hound ol the
Baskervilles and Women II tta intei.
I i T?
PSYCHO KILLER 2 A sequel to the Psycho Killer CDTV interactive thriller is currently being Tilmed' during the dark winter nights on location in Southampton. Another unusual game Irom Fergus McNeil ol The Boggit fame, Psycho Killer 2 will sport gorgeous 24-bit graphics and CDXL compatibility (see main text).
Id- Vivid Syste SoftWi have ronmi for thi Friday ees o Group sion c corres What programmers are now obsolete. A nice thought tor some perhaps, but still a little premature at this stage. Don’t expect to have the next Populous or Speedball in your hands within a week, but anybody with a hint ot creative ability can produce a professional product provided the right raw ingredients are available.
To do a really good job you'll need a wealth of pictures, animations, sounds and music to keep the punter interested and the quality of this visual and audio material can make or break a project. Of course, such elements never come cheap and at £5000, we’re afraid to say, neither does On-Line Entertainment's DIY multimedia studio.
On a more positive note, it’s extremely easy to use.
DTV should be seen as'a black box' in the design process,’ reveals Chambers, ’It is a tool like a camera or recording studio’.
One thing is for sure, On-Line Entertainment is fully committed to the concept of DTV and constantly increases the tricks it can perform.
Future enhancements will include support for 24-bit colour and CDXL, Commodore's partial screen motion video software technology capable of generating 1 3-screen images at around 12 frames per second. This should allow far better utilisation of digitised video footage within a typical CDTV release.
There’s even talk of a special cut-down adaption of DTV for producing ordinary Amiga applications on floppy disk. If strong public demand for such a program becomes clear, it's merely a matter of time. What about another name change, too?
In Motion.
On-Line Entertainment describes DTV as a multimedia publishing system which allows designers and artists to build CD based products. It company boss Clement Chambers is to be believed, gf At the very core of On-Line Entertainment’s Desktop Video we have shots'.

Vincent John Vincent and Francis McDougall at The Vivid Group have been using computers and video cameras to capture a person and transport them into graphics that can be seen on a big screen television. This unique technology, known Mandala, allows you to enter and control events without physically touching anything. Any video camera and Amiga can be used.
Hi Couch potatoes die! Mandala games, regardless of their theme, promote health and physical fitness. Sports organisations, including NHL Hockey, have already begun to tap this potential.
Ittj The ideas for interactive Mandala exhibits and attractions are being applied to museums, science centres and galleries across the globe. The Vivid Group has exhibits in such places as the Tech2000 Gallery ol the Future in Washington D.C.. Italy's History ot the Machine Museum in Torino and the forthcoming Canada Pavilion at the 1992 World Fair in Seville. Spain.
Hi The Vivid Group is now developing an add-on device lor the Mandala system that will enable users to control their own living rooms, including lights, telephones, TV, hi-fi, VCR, modem and toaster even functions such as wordprocessing and speech synthesis are catered lor. Eventually. The Vivid Group wishes to project images as holograms instead ol using video monitors.
Hi Much attention has been given to The Vivid Group's interactive make-your-own-rock-vldeos' recently seen on BBCI's long-running show, Tomorrow's World. Karaoke lovers step into a rock video ol their choice and instantly become the lead singer. You’re also able to play animated musical instruments such as drums and tambourines. As a bonus, you could walk away with a video tape ol yoursell in action!
Stif 1,111 II I BE YOUR OWN BROADCASTER YES, BUT WHAT IS IT?
A genlock is a small, lightweight video mixer. The function of the device is to mix the digital graphic images output from your Amiga with any other external composite video source: a camcorder, still-video camera or even the composite output of another computer.
The genlock takes the colour zero from the Amiga (the first defined colour, usually black) to be transparent.
Everywhere that colour appears on the Amiga display, a window is cut to the picture from the other source underneath. Even the most primitive examples have three modes of operation: Picture, Graphics and mixed. As you can imagine, these allow the user to select either source exclusively or a mixture of both. At last there need be no more arguments about whether to watch TV or use your Amiga - now you can do both on one screen, providing your parents don’t mind as you gradually colour in Anne Robinson!.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
In simple terms, what the genlock does is this. Each frame of action you see on the screen does not actually arrive as one complete picture at a time, but as a stream of data. Sitting on the RGB output of your Amiga, the genlock connects to all the digital colour data for the computer’s display. At the same time it receives the analogue data from the other video source.
As each pixel of the computer’s display goes past, the genlock checks to see if it is colour zero. If it is then the external source is switched through direct to the output. If it isn’t, then the RGB data from the Amiga is turned into a composite image and fed to the output.
Basically the genlock is just a very high speed switch with a bit of logic circuitry and a modulator thrown in. The cunning bit is that the frames from both You're going to need a genlock for Desktop Video work.. .and there is only one place to find out everything you need to know about them here!
People who have come into contact with computers soon learn that there is more than one type of reality. There is reality prime, the primarily analogue world which we inhabit, and then there is the digital world of the microprocessor, where everything seems possible as long as it has log ial ly-defi ned bit structures. The humble genlock, a sub £100 piece of plastic, is notable in that it can bring these two realities together in the mass media of the age - video.
Sources obviously have to start simultaneously if they are going to be switched properly by the genlock. The chances of this happening by pure accident are about the same as the chances of walking unscathed through the Dartford tunnel blindfold during rush-hour. The genlock doesn’t have much chance of controlling the external video source, but it can alter the timing of the Amiga's display. It does this quite simply by slowing the Amiga's clock down until both frames start together. This is one of the reasons that genlocks on Amigas are much cheaper than a genlocking board on most other
desktop Pcs - the Amiga can be clocked slower fairly easily.
This synch matching is a continuous process because the frames can easily get out of synch again. You may notice the Amiga slowing occasionally when you have the genlock connected. As a rule, never format a disk when you are genlocking.
In the same way that everyone’s first C program is a little routine that prints 'hello world', most people's first experience of genlocking is adding a set of horns to Jeremy Paxman on Newsnight.
But there is more to it than that.
OK THEN, WHAT_ CAN I DO WITH IT?
ROCGEN RG300C
- Evesham Micros Silica. £119 Plugging straight into the Amiga's
video port and the video In and Out sockets, this
beige-coloured device can provide fades, overlays, and can pro
vide displays dissolves courtesy of a dial at the front of the
machine. Another main advantage is that it synchronises itself
when it is working with the video signal. Basically, the RG300C
is a Jack Of All Trades which provides everything you’ll need
to get into super- -**** imposing. Extremely good value and a
powerful genlock - recommended.
Considering its tiny size, this unit is surprisingly good. Although its can't support S-VHS or Hi8, the unit simply plugs into the back of the Amiga and is ready to go. Although it can only fade in graphics or switch captions, the £100 tag makes it an ideal entry to the world of genlock and, as such, is probably worth a risk.
Further software is available for the unit, too.
RENDALE 8802

market, the 8802 is a sturdy-looking machine, giving it a solid
and reliable look. However, ALTER IMAGE GENLOCK
- HB Marketing. £100 GENLOCKS TO BUY... although this goes very
much in its tavour. The machine is controlled via its software
and this is extremely frustrating. Whilst this can be over

avoided. Very lew options seem available to the user, which
seems odd, and to perform the unit's many functions is a
daunting business. Mxxxm Hardly the most user-friendly device
released, and certainly not lor the novice user.

the casual user but, needless to say. Is a very professional
piece ol kit. One ol the nicest touches is the joystick control
it offers, where fades and the like can be positioned before
use. In addition, the SP also users the best quality BNC
connectors, rather than the customary input and outputs. The
unit is probably of more use as a digitising unit than as a
live video machine, but is capable ot some very impressive
mixing effects. II you're loaded, try it out.

a dial system), but the joystick system of the SP has sadly
gone. Also, if you want to use the fader, unfortunately you
will have to fork out a further £160 for the necessary

This technique allows traditional video to be over- layed on top ot a computer-generated background.
Without it, weathermen the world over would be heard and not seen. Because the video source doesn't exactly have an easily recognised colour zero, one colour component otthe video image is used as the transparent window.
Using a genlock and a Chromakey system (and two Amigas) you could make the external video source appear to be in between two layers ol graphics. There are some chromakeying devices available for the Amiga in the USA, but so lar they haven't made it to this country.
Because chromakeying means that the video source must lack one component colour (usually blue) It Isn't that popular with newsreaders, especially when the blue bits ol their ties suddenly turn Into famine picture from Somalia. For this reason, many news shows lake the effect and genlock graphics onto a plain background. As long as the newsreader doesn’t leap out ol his seat and try to run in front of the image it is very difficult to tell.
Have you ever seen the ITV Chartshow? All those funny bits that explain how Danni Minogue is afraid of spiders and how, in fact, Erasure are really quite talented and not just a bunch of talentless jerks? That's done with a genlock. A lot of the videos themselves have some degree of genlocking going on, though this is often performed with more expensive equipment.
Subtitling and closing credits are done almost exclusively with genlocks these days, because it's quick and easy.
It's just as easy for you.
Multimedia is another growth area for genlocking. Because the external source will be under software control, intelligent genlocking for touch-screens or multi-lingual subtitling is possible.
By the application of some simple cunning you can come up with some fairly astounding effects. A technique used in a lot of films before the advent of sophisticated computer hardware was glass-plating. In the sci-fi classic, 2001, there is a scene showing the ship against a backdrop of stars and through a large window you can see one of the crew working. The ship and the stars were simply painted on a sheet of glass with a hole for the 'live' footage of the crewman. The genlock can now take the place of the glass.
Remember that you don't need any software at all to run the genlock - it takes colour zero from any application that happens to be running - even Workbench. Best results are obtained with an art package like Dpainl which can use the maximum overscan area of the screen, or a specialist titling or presentation package. Really, the whole area of genlocking is a new medium for expressing yourself. The best way to use a genlock is to imagine the effect you want and then work out how to get there. Take a look at some of the examples here and just imagine what is possible if, unlike our own
director, you have some sort of talent.
Some genlocks have faders built into them but you could use some display software to gradually dissolve in your image. What about wipes? And zooms?"
And... Oh dear, we're going to have to lie down... ? DIGITISE, ANIMATE AND CELEBRATE Another way to use video is to grab impressive stills and animations to use on your Amiga.
Mat Broomfield dons his Roman Polanski director's hat to find out more... Most people are aware of the Amiga's impressive specifications in the field of graphics output. Doubly so since the much-publicised release of Dpaint
IV. And you would have had to have been in isolation not to have
noticed ANIMATION There is no reason why you can’t run an
animated sequence on top of a videoed backdrop. This is a
technique often employed in Canadian cartoons to great
effect, though they use a different process.

they are, or colourised using either a standard art package, or
an image processing system such as Pixmate.
OPTIONAL EXTRAS As for colour digitising, optional extras available for Vidi-Amiga and Video Digitiser allow you to grab in full colour. Called RGB splitters, the hardware separates incoming video signals into their red, green and blue components before combining them to produce a full- colour image. It's then a simple task to digitise a colour image with Vidi- Amiga, and will only take a few minutes to set up.
First, Vidi-Amiga It's all Beadli Camci an ars make you ha many I Jenkin If yoL use with option w colour vi from £5C that anyl modern.
Some ole dard con The rr tive to thi recorder which, as SCOPES UP A very time-saving use of digitised sequences is called Rotoscoping, whereby sequential frames are digitised, then adapted for use in games and demos. To summarise, the process involves a number of straightforward stages:
1. Digitise the frames to be used.
2. Using the digitised image as a template, draw outlines around
any characters etc, that you want to use.
3. Erase everything else, perhaps using the Stencil option of
your favourite art package.
4. Recolour the areas within your outlines.
Using this technique, far greater realism can be given to animations because they use genuine characters as the basis for their movements.
LEFT OUT IN THE COLD Less popularised of late, have been digitising systems such as Vidi-Amiga, Video Digitiser, and the likes of Digiview Gold, which are relatively cheap at £100-200 each. These allow the user to convert the output from camcorders, video players or security cameras into Amiga screens. These can then be used within your own slideshows or animations.
Basically, there are two types of digitiser: those which work in colour and those which don't. Video Digitiser and Vidi Amiga both produce monochrome images made up of sixteen shades of grey rather like those on a black and white television, These images are useful because of the the massive increase in interest in 24-bit graphics systems over the last year, such as Colorburst, Harlequin. DCTV and the many others.
However, although 24-bit graphics systems are superb in their own right, they require a massive investment in additional equipment and software, and for the average user they're not practical.
Must be plugged into the parallel port ot the computer; then Vidi-RGB (the colour splitter unit) must be connected to it.
The video source is then connected to Vidi-RGB via a phono cable.
If you're trying to digitise from a video recorder which has a SCART output but doesn't support phono, you’ll have to acquire a suitable adaptor, or make one up yourself. Once the hardware is connected, load the the Vidi-Chrome software (which takes care of the colour separations) and you’re ready to begin.
When you've found a video image that you want to digitise, you’ll need to keep it perfectly still whilst the software does its work. On a video recorder this means that you'll either need a digital freeze frame, or an extremely good mechanical system. From the software's menu, select ‘Grab Ham' and a greyscale image wil be displayed on-screen.
This allows you to visually adjust the brightness levels of the incoming picture. Once satisfied with this, another click of the mouse-button will convert the grey image into a HAM one which you can save for later use. Normally, the first picture you digitise will be displayed using the wrong colours, with the picture dominated by shades of one primary colour. Careful adjustment of the saturation and colour balance options will take care of this, although you’ll probably have to make slight adjustments for every picture you digitise.
TAKE ONE. . .
So, you've got your colour screens, but what can you do with them? The most obvious thing is that you can use them to make up a slideshow, perhaps forming a gallery based on a particular topic
- A Neighbours tribute (heaven forbid I) ora Roger Dean round-up.
Using a program such as The Director you can include music or
special effects and turn your slideshow into a presentation,
perhaps for educational use.
¦ CAM ON DOWN... - It's all very well for Jeremy Beadle-types to say, ‘buy a Camcorder, film yourself being an arse and send it into us to make me a celebrity’, but first you have to choose one of the many that are available. Chris Jenkins shows you the way... If you're choosing a video system for use with your Amiga, the cheapest option would be a second-hand mono or.
Colour video camera, which would cost from £50-350 or so. Make sure, though, that anything you buy is compatible with modern equipment, mainly because some old video cameras have non-standard connectors.
The more convenient modern alternative to the separate video camera and recorder system is the Camcorder, which, as its name implies, combines both funclions in one portable, battery- powered unit. Camcorders come in three main flavours, depending on the tape format used. VHS is the standard used by most home video machines: you can take a tape recorded on a VHS Camcorder and put it straight into your VCR; but the disadvantage is that VHS units are large and heavy.
VHS-C is the compact alternative. Its tapes are roughly a quarter of the size of a normal VHS tape, and VHS-C cassettes can be inserted into an adaptor which allows them to be played on standard VHS machines. This is extremely convenient, but the drawback of this format is that tape lengths are short, normally 30 or 45 minutes. Increasingly popular, is the newer Video 8 standard.
These 8mm tapes, specially designed for Camcorders, run for up to 90 minutes. However, you can't play them in your video machine - you have to play the tape in the Camcorder and connect it to the VCR or TV. Yes, there are Video 8 VCRs around, but they're rare and expensive.
Each format has its respective ‘high band’ equivalent: S-VHS, S-VHS-C and Hi8, and these formats offer considerably better pictures and sound, but cost more and require better quality VCRs and TV to get the best from them. If you're shopping for a Camcorder, go to a specialist store to get good advice - and then try the discount warehouses for bargains.
Good current buys are the VHS- C Chinon 1500, which is exclusive to Dixon’s and, at £499, is the cheapest machine around. Also, the Video 8 Canon E60, at £600, boasts infrared remote control and a clip-on video light. Probably the most desirable, though, is the Sony TR705 ‘Palmcorder’, a tiny Hi8 model with a multitude of features packed into a tiny package. Start saving up now, though, as it comes in at mss** k;:;: a cool £1000!

I ‘Bub and Bob, after rescuing the villagers of the Rainbow Islands and Rainbow World, have been given magic parasols by the grateful villagers. Unfortunately, an evil warrior called Chaos Tikahn has unleashed a slew of monsters across the universe.
With their magic parasols to hand, Bub and Bob must traverse the seven worlds to defeat this menace...' Thus, enlightened by the decidedly odd Japanese scenario, we are ready to once again team up with those founders of the cutesy genre, Bub and Bob, as they prepare for their third Amiga excursion.
After abandoning their dinosaur skins for dungarees in the transition between Bubble Bobble and Rainbow Islands, !R NEED!!

• J „tk-. I I, Brand ond other IOUSE MAT, £389 £439 £588 Bub and
Bob have once again evolved slightly to protect themselves from
this further menace, and their change is in the hands of
veteran Ocean coder Mik West and his graphics-supplying part
ner, Don McDermot. With the likes of Darkman and assorted past
Ocean licences under their respective belts, are they finding
it harder to recreate a The most famous sprites in Taitoland,
Bub and Bob, the diminutive heroes of Rainbow Islands and
Bubble Bobble are returning for a third bite at the Amiga
cherry. Steve ‘Taito-lly Great’ Merrett went over the rainbow
with them... cutesy game, where the emphasis is on the
playability, rather than a more 'serious' piece? Mik confirms
this: 'Playability is especially important in a game like
Parasol, and one of the hardest parts of its development is
combining its many hidden bonuses and gameplay quirks with the
addictive gameplay the series are famed for. It's all very well
having one, but to succeed, both must be present.'
Although it never appeared in coin-op form, Taito’s third game in the Bub and Bob series hit the PC Engine a year back and is a worthy successor. As soon as Ocean had secured the rights, Mik and Don started work by reworking the ST disks that Taito had crammed the game's many backdrops and sprites on to. 'Overall, IN DEVELOPMENT Taito weren’t exactly the most helpful of people,' admits Mik, 'and although they supplied the graphics, they still had to be reworked into our sixteen colour palette. Originally, the sprites had sixteen colours each, and there was no way we could have kept that in.'
Because of Taito’s lack of aid, both Mik and Don had to spend a series of late nights as they played the PC Engine game to death and tried to unlock its many secret rooms and concepts. Thus, armed with copious notes, Mik started to *- MRASOLSDUtS piece the code together on his Snasm- based 386 PC.
Parasol draws a great deal of ideas from its predecessors, with the sprites of Rainbow set against single-screen and platform-laden levels reminiscent of Bubble Bobble. The game is set across eight worlds, each of which contains a further seven stages and a show-down with a larger guardian. Armed with their parasols, Bub and Bob must clear each screen of its deadly inhabitants, before moving on to the next. And whilst this may not sound the most exciting task known to man, Taito's typically weird game ideas breathe new life into the game. For example, whereas they are now minus their deadly
rainbows, Bub and Bob's umbrella weaponry can be used to pick up nasties (or each other) and to hurl them across the screen to their deaths. In addition, extras, such as water bubbles can be collected one after another until a larger drip courses along the screen's many platforms - Bubble Bobble-style - killing anything in its way.
‘Despite what the scenario says, there are actually eight worlds,’ continues Mik, ‘starting with Woodland World, then on to Music World and eventually for a final con- SEQUELITIS The Bubble Bobble series of games are all similar in concept and Parasol Stars is a distinct mixture ot the first two games.
Retaining the single-screen system ot Bubble, the parasols our heroes use are every bit as effective as Bub and Bob's rainbow weapons. However, although each screen is played one at a time, with the assorted nasties littering their many ledges, they also scroll horizontally. The largest levels are two screens wide, and Parasol is graphically tar more complex than its predecessors, with parallax backdrops and more trames of animation per sprite. ‘I've got something like seven trames per character; says Mik. ‘and I’ve also tightened a lew areas that I wasn't happy with in the PC Engine
version. For instance, the Bub and Bob sprites didn’t turn last enough, so I've nipped a few frames there. It’s just little stutf, but I think it'll make a lot of difference.'
Before each stage. Bub and Bob are whisked across the game's map.
Irontanon against Chaos back in Rainbow World.' Where presumably the graphics are similar to those of Rainbow Islands? ‘Yes, exactly. We’ve got something like seven species of alien now, each of whom behaves individually but, like Islands the same creatures appear in different guises in later stages - you'll still recognise them by their movement, though.' So, with the game now roughly 80% complete with the sound still to go in, how does he feel it compares to the others in the series? ‘Personally, I feel that Parasol is the best of the three, and that's not forgetting that Rainbow is most
peoples' favourite game. However, Rainbow is basically a shoot ‘em up and there's more of a puzzle element to Parasol's goings-ons and I feel this extends the gameplay more. Hopefully, after playing Parasol, the player will go back to Rainbow and realise just how much is in our game.'
IN TUNE Alter the melodic rambling ol Somewhere Over The Rainbow' In Rainbow Islands, Parasols cute ditties and sound effects are in the hands ol Matthew Cannon and Ocean veteran, John Dunn, respectively. Theactual tune is another airy affair, and the effects will be similarly light-hearted with Dunn taking them Irom the console version and heeling them up when necessary.

One choi com and Mati a re' deal conl Sup Qua regL dow mini C throi mate the s ness exar i American Football hasn't had a chequered history on the Amiga.
Only Cinemaware's aging TV Sports Football managed to convert the sport into a playable game and, even then, if you weren’t a fan of the sport, you stood no chancel Now, thanks to Electronic Arts, there's a new contender for the Amiga Footballing crown.
John Madden Football lets you become both coach and quarterback to one of 16 NFL teams, effectively combining arcade-style action with in- depth strategy. Such a mix of gaming styles helps capture all the excitement of the real thing and effectively translates the sport’s complex rules, statistics and plays into a white-hot conversion destined to become something of a classic.
Such gushing praise is not undeserved. There are more than 100 plays in the whole game offering a wide variety of running and passing options backed up by some serious bone-crunching defensive strategies. The game begins with a comprehensive options screen which allows you to chose from 16 of the NFL's top teams as well as the John Madden All- Stars, a squad of players that are almost invincible and can run, pass and catch better than any other team. The instruction manual comes with a complete breakdown of each team's strengths and weaknesses and each player’s skills and attributes are
rated on a scale from 0 to
15. For instance, defensive backs are rated for their hitting
ability, pass coverage and tackling whereas the Offensive
line are scored on their weight, pass blocking, run blocking
and speed. All these attributes are reflected in a team’s
on-field performance and no amount of joystick wiggling
will make up for the fact that your quarterback is a
complete klutz and couldn't run down the street without
catching wind.
Other options include a comes eakdown sngths and iach attributes le tram 0 to tensive

M L NEW PLAYERS START HERE To the uninitiated. American Football can seem like an excuse for gratuitous violence between grossly-overweight young men who bear a striking resemblance to the Michelin man once they've donned their protective clothing. In tact, the game is just as much a thinking man's game as it is for those who have an overactive thyroid gland and a penchant for steroids.
Play takes place across a pitch (the 'Gridiron') which is 100 yards long by 53 yards wide. The aim ol the game is to move the ball more than 10 yards in lour attempts (called ‘Downs') and eventually carry the ball into your opponent's End-Zone (past their Goal-line) for a Touchdown (score). Each team has an offense, defense and special teams which come into play at different times during the game. If an opposing team's offense is on the field (having possession of the ball), then your defense will be called Into play to check their progress towards your goal-line. Each team has a number of
defensive and offensive plays which they use to try to second guess the opposition and either advance the ball down the field, impeded progress or regain possession. It's a bit like chess in that each team needs to pick the right plays with the right players at the right time.
One or two-player game, a choice of keyboard or joystick controls, and variable pitch and weather conditions.
Matches can either be part of a regular season, sudden death, or, if you’re feeling confident enough, part of the Superbowl playoffs. Each Quarter can either be the regular 15 minutes or scaled down to last for five or 10 minutes.
Once you've waded through all the options, a prematch Scouting Report lists the strengths and weaknesses of both teams. For example, one team might have a strong running game but a poor defensive line-up who are weak in the air whereas the other side might possess a big money quarterback who likes to play the long ball. It’s important to study these reports as well as the manual’s breakdown as spotting a team’s weakness and then exploiting it is the way to win games.
Play is viewed from above and behind the offensive lineup so that the defensive team always run downfield. This foreshortened 3D view works surprisingly well, especially with the graduated colouring WHO THE HELL IS JOHN MADDEN ANYWAY?
For those not sawy with American Football, John Madden could be any old jock putting his name to the finest American Football game to grace the Amiga. However, Madden is a man with a history and. In 1969, became the youngest head coach In professional football when he replaced John Rauch as the man in charge of the Los Angeles Raiders. In 1977 he helped the team win Superbowl XI.
After retiring from the game two years later. Madden began a new career as a TV sports commentator and his expert opinion can be heard every Sunday night on Channel 4’s footy coverage.
Of the pitch, and the screen scrolls up and down the field as well as from side to side depending on where the ball is at any given moment.
Unfortunately, each time the ball is lost the screen flips around so that the offensive team is progressing up the field. It’s a bit disorientating at first and can cause you a few lost points into the bargain. This annoying feature can happen at virtually any time during the game. For instance, if a pass is intercepted the screen will flip so that the team now in possession are heading up field!
After the referee spots the ball, a football-shaped strength gauge appears. By holding down the joystick and moving it from side to side, it's possible to determine the strength of the kick up-field as well as the direction the ball will take. Once the ball has been caught by the opposition and returned up the field, both the offense and defense must select their plays for the first down. This consists of picking the players who will take part in the play, the formation they'll take up on the pitch and the strategy used to pull off the play. This is done by a clever menu system which
displays a selection of running, passing or defensive plays depending on which team you’re controlling. By moving the joystick to the left or right it's possible to move through the different combinations until the required play is displayed.
The game then reverts to a display of the pitch. Even at this late stage it’s possible to change your mind about a play and call an audible to initiate a new tactic. These are the strange grunt-like utterings of the Quarterback which can often be overheard during televised matches.
There are six in all and each team has their own specific calls. Once the ball is snapped into play, you can either choose to take control ot the quarterback or let the computer execute the move.
If you’ve opted tor a passing play, your three receivers will pop up at the top ot the screen. To pull oft a successful pass it’s a good idea to throw to those players who are holding their hands aloft, otherwise you risk the chance ot an interception, an incomplete pass or a fumble.
Even when a receiver is in a good position, you’ll still have to get him underneath the ball to make the catch.
If you’ve got control of the defense you control the player nearest to the ball, but it's possible to cycle through each player in your teamto take up a better position.
Obviously, the best play you can make is to sack the quarterback or make an interception.
Unfortunately, all of this isn't as easy as it may sound due to the cumbersome control method that's replaced the three-button joypad used in the Megadrive game.
Everything in the original was geared to the pad's engineering with a choice of three on-screen plays, three receivers and so on. Merely transferring these characteristics over to the Amiga and expecting them to work perfectly with a conventional joystick is asking a bit too much of even the keenest gamesplayer. It'll take quite some time to familiarise yourself with the control method which involves multiple presses and joystick movements to pull off the majority of plays.
However, once you've become accustomed to the control system it’s possible to pull off some spectacular plays without raising a sweat.
In one game against the Denver Broncos I managed to throw a Hail Mary close to the Endzone from my own 30 yard line and run it in for a touchdown while shaking off the unwanted attentions of three defensive linebackers.
Ploughing through tackles, diving for extra yardage or spinning and avoiding tackles all together becomes second IT'S A MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD John Madden Football first appeared on the Megadrive almost twelve months ago and was heralded at the time as the finest American Football game ever. The eagerly-awaited Amiga conversion is the first Sega game to make it onto everyone's favoorite home compoter. Alter the one-way traffic of computer games being converted for the console market. It's encouraging to see games such as John Madden, Sega's Sonic and Konami's Mission Impassible reversing the
trend.
The Amiga version of Madden has been programmed by Gary Roberts.
If the name isn’t familiar yet. We re sure It will be in the months to come.
It's Gary's first stab at a commercial game. Before being snapped up by EA, gary was quite active in the Public Domain and coded the excellent Amiga Tanx game, included on one ol this month's coverdisks. As well as a six-disk Pink Floyd megademo reviewed in last year's July issue.
FOOTY FACTS
• The cost ot kitting out a professional team can be as high as
$ 300,000.
• The first professional player was Pudge Heffelfinger who
received the princely some of $ 500 to play for the Allegheny
Athletic Association in 1892 (who we all know went on to
dominate the sport ever sincel).
• Harvard University were the first team to allow a certain
amount of running with the ball instead of playing a largely
kicking game. In a game against McGill University in 1874,
only 11 members ol the McGill team were well enough to play, so
the game went ahead with 11 men instead of the normal 15 men
per side. If the lour men hadn't come down with the flu,
American football might well be played today with 15 men a
side.
’ A A A A . .
• One of the highlights of the 1968 season was the game between
the Los Angeles Raiders and the New York Jets.
The Raiders were trailing the Jets 32-29 when the network broadcasting the game interupted coverage to show the children's film, Heidi, and viewers missed two last-minute touchdowns which clinched the match for the Raiders. The game became known as the Heidi' game and such was the volume of protest that network TV would always think twice before interrupting another televised game again.
Nature after a while.
The sprites are remark- ably detailed and well-animated. Touchdown boogies are common place (even it the real thing has been banned in the NFL!)
And the realistic movement ot players during the many set plays is excellent. Bone-jarring sound effects when unstoppable offense meets immovable defense add significantly to the atmosphere as does the sampled speech
• The winners of each Super Bowl collects a souvenir ring for
their efforts. It isn't just any kind of ring, though.
Approximately 75 rings are especially designed and produced each year for the winning Super Bowl team. Such is the value and mystique of the rings that few have ever surfaced al auctions and those that have been sold have fetched astronomical prices.
During crucial plays. Even the crowd noise is authentic- sounding, something many sport sims overlook or use samples which sound like TV static.
The lack of an instant replay facility for dubious or close calls is a disappointment, especially if you pull off a long bomb or manage to sack the opposition's quarterback and want to watch it all over again. It's also annoying that only 16 of the NFL's 28 teams are included in the game. Fans of the Dallas Cowboys, New York Jets, New Orleans Saints or the Green Bay Packers will be disappointed to find their team aren't included in the game. Also, a bit more Speedball 2-type violence might have got some more mileage out of the game. Off the ball fights or the chance to follow up a hit on a
player with a fist in the face might not exactly be fair play, but it sure would be fun!
John Madden is certainly the most playable and addictive American Football game on the Amiga. It's not perfect, but once you’ve got used to the control system, you'll get hours of play out of it.

CO hir of to wc for breath, he clambers out of the pool and notices a large beast bounding along on the horizon. Although unarmed, it doesn’t mean you can't protect yourself. Pulling down on the joystick and pressing the fire button performs a very useful sweeping kick, whilst, from the standing position, a small toe punt can send the creepiest of crawlies scampering for safety. You have to get aggressive very early on in the game as it's not long before the environment starts to get downright hostile.
The backgrounds are sparse, to say the least, but they’re incredibly weird and alien. Distant lights and small animals can be spotted along the way, and various weeds and vegetation sway in the breeze, adding to the alienlike atmosphere. Don't hang around though; if you need to get out of a tight spot quickly, Lester’s lethargic saunter can be stepped up several gears, turning him into a veritable Linford Christie.
Delphine have made a radical departure from their normal graphic 'n' text adventures to produce one of the most original looking games in years.
Another World begins with a fabulously atmospheric animated intro, utilising different camera angels and recounting the background events of the game. A young scientist, Lester Chaykin, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Galleon from Planet of the Apes, is experimenting with sub-atomic particles late one night when the particle propulsion tunnel is hit by a freak bolt of lightning. The pulse travels back along the circuit control panel sending the unfortunate researcher into another dimension. It's just like a scene from Back To The Future!
The game proper starts with the scientist materialising underwater with the control panel sinking beneath him. Lester scrambles free and you begin to take control of his actions and guide him to the surface of another world. Gasping and wheezing All six levels are linked by animations. Don’t worry if you've been put off by the polygon COMICBOOK Another World took two years lo pro- graphics duce and initially was developed solely tor the Amiga. ou ve seen Its slyle and look has inevitably led to comparisons with in screen film - but with its varied gameplay, which incorporates shots - in
puzzles as well as arcade action, the whole ezperience fact, they're resembles an animated comic book adventure, let's a refreshing hope we see more product like this! And essential to the game's addictiveness.
What’s more they can be viewed in four different modes: standard, 'cinemas- cope’ high resolution, vertical (a somewhat scrunched-up and elongated view), and high resolution normal.
Granted they're not terribly useful, but they do serve to add value if you want to replay the game.
Chaykin soon realises that some sort of weapon would be handy and conveniently finds a discarded gun. The rock monsters that patrol the realm are also armed with the same curious weapon. A single pull on the trigger sends out a lone laser blast, but briefly holding the fire- button down produces a plasma ball and protective shield. Holding it down for even longer produces a huge pulse of power to bore through mountainsides and open up whole new vistas for exploration.
Not all the aliens you meet are the blood-thirsty slave- mongering type and in a novel twist early on in the game Chaykin is coupled with a rather large companion. The rebel rock beast follows the scientist everywhere and, if you're not careful, he can easily be left behind and unable to perform his useful services of opening locks and pointing you in the right direction.
Another World comes on only two disks and most games players will sail through the first three levels.
The ease of play, coupled with a code system that allows re-entry from your last exit, make the whole thing a very short-lived, if rewarding, experience. It’s a pity that there's not one more disk - but few games hold your attention long enough to warrant constant replaying.
Another World does and is one purchase that's truly worth making.

A lesson has obviously been learnt by Psygnosis since Beast, as Agony contains the superb graphics of the Beast series, but can also claim to be a rather playable shoot 'em up, too. As one of the apprentices of Acanthropsis, a wizard who has discovered the mysterious Cosmic Power, Alestes (that's you) must battle through six levels of nasties thrown at him by his rival apprentice, Mentor.
However, in a weird twist, and to justify the main sprite, Alestes enters battle in the form of a heavily-armed Owl.
Power-ups are the heart of a good shoot 'em up, and Agony has them in spades.
Periodically, icons tumble across the screen, and quick joystick-wiggling allows Alestes to swoop down to collect them. There are three types of bonus items: protective swords; potions to increase firepower; and scrolls which provide assorted effects. To use them later, the firebutton should be depressed to reveal the list of scrolls held.
Using spells at the right time can have a devastating effect on the bad guys, especially the end-of-level nasties which make their obligatory appearance.
The quality of the aforementioned main Owl sprite, and the superb backdrops, unfortunately make the enemy ones look rather • weedy. They are, however, both original and amusing
- including creatures that look suspiciously like flying koala
bears. Overall, there’s a vaguely Japanese feel to the game,
keeping in with the graphical style of Leander.
During the game, the monsters come thick and fast, but there’s no noticeable slowing of the IF LOOKS COULD KILL Agony boasts seventeen tunes altogether. And If you'd expected the usual bombastic drivel normally associated with shoot 'em ups, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Actually, the music seems inspired by South American folk music, with haunting pipe sounds complementing the action perfectly. Visually, I've never seen a game with this much attention to detail. With three levels of parallax scrolling smoothly across the screen, the backgrounds change to reveal scene alter scene ol
glorious graphics. Incredibly, all these backdrops are also animated, and it's hard not to be distracted by them. Add lo these some realistic bird animation and you've got one of the best-looking games of '92.
Action. However, the actual gameplay. Whilst suitably frenetic, isn’t exactly original - perhaps Psygnosis were hoping that the unusual main sprite would disguise this?
They also claim that 'priority has been given to playability’ and for once it's no idle boast. Things start out easily enough as you’d expect, but by the fourth or fifth level it’s serious mayhem on the screen - shoot ’em up heaven, in fact. It’s a shame that autofire isn't available (because of the scroll selection) but the action will soon have you ignoring tired fingers.
It seems that Psygnosis have finally got rid of the Seasf-ghost and other 'looks- pretty-but-where's-the-game' products. The screen shots will indicate the quality of the graphics, but thankfully there's more to Agony than that, with fast-moving playability putting it on a level above the vast majority of similar games released on the Amiga. Perhaps not a classic, it should still be given shelf space by anyone devoted to blasting games.
Matt Regan PSYGNOSIS £25.99 A game for once worth all the glossy packaging j GRAPHICS 92% SOUND 90% LASTABILITY 79% PLAYABILITY 83% OVERALL 85% WAYNE GRETZKY HOCKEY game's unplayable because you need two fire buttons, involving much fumbling with the keyboard, while with a mouse (slightly better) movement is achieved by positioning the pointer on the pitch and letting the player's on-screen persona drift towards it. To get anywhere in the game involves making lots of complex plays requiring loads of key presses.
True, the game's all very realistic and after a lot (and I mean a lot!) Of practice things do start to come together and some enjoyment is reaped. You’ve just got to ask yourself if you're really a big enough fan of professional ice hockey to make the effort. Trouble is, I’ve got a nasty feeling that the answer for 99.9999% of the Great British Public will be a re'sounding ‘No’.
David Upchurch Err... Wayne who? Okay, okay, so Wayne Gretzky may not be a name that's on the tip of everybody’s tongues over here, but across the Big Pond it’s a different story, where he’s acclaimed as ‘The Great One' because of his supreme prowess in the noble art of ice hockey. But while the boy Wayne may be a whizz on the ice, his performance on the computer screen is distinctly less impressive.
Having fought your way through the copy protection and some comprehensive but very drab menu screens, you’re into the game. Now the appealing thing about ice hockey is that it's probably the nearest any real-life sport gets to S'peedball, being fast, violent and frequently ending up in a huge fists-flying ruck. Massive potential for an all-out action computer game, you might think. And you’d be right.
Unfortunately, if that’s what you think you're getting here then I'm afraid you’re going to be sorely disappointed.
For Wayne Gretzky Hockey 2 is, as Bethesda Software is keen to stress throughout the game’s documentation, not just a mere game, it’s a simulation. Thus, instead of large well-animated sprites slapping the puck about on a big scrolling ice rink, we have tiny, tiny blobs milling about on an uninteresting top-viewed arena that merely scrolls left and right.
Control (something of a misnomer here) is not brilliant. With a joystick the PUCKER UP The big pity about Wayne Bretiky Hockey 2Is that it all starts really well, wilh a smart Intro showing a pad-clad skater (our Wayne, presumably) skating on-screen past a crowd of screaming, cheering spectators.

Although there is an intro screen showing Al Pacino, this is where the link to the films unfortunately ends.
Probably due to copyright and legal reasons that usually accompany bigger licenses the game takes on a turn for the worse and, for all we know, it might as well be the film license for Bugsy Malone.
Ting being blown up before the screen. When the intro comes to an end. A lone figure is standing under a street lamp and lights a cigarette before striding out into the gloomily-lit street to attend to some very serious ‘business'.
The first task involves walking a treacherous path to the first Mafia boss who must be mercilessly gunned down.
Gangsters lean out of windows and doorways ready to fill you full of lead and must be killed quickly as before you can shout Michael Corleone is the illegitimate son of a thousand fathers' it's off to the cemetery.
Controlling your man's actions is very frustrating and reference to the A4 postage stamp that's been substituted Few films have had as much impact in the cinematic world as the Godfather trilogy. Based on the best-selling novel by Mario Puzo the series chronicled the life and deeds of the mythical Corleone family and provided an unprecedented look into the Mafia world that few knew, or were prepared to admit, existed in 1940's America. Upon release, Marlon Brando's depiction of the Mafia boss, Don Corleone, was heralded as one of the greatest performances captured on celluloid and
confirmed his position as the most respected actor of his generation.
The game is a five level amalgamation of the three epic films. Rather than taking As game intros go you'll have to venture a long way to find one as detailed as this.
Using a number of 'camera’ angles, the title sequence sweeps through New York with bits of background info and the odd newspaper cutLIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION When plans were first announced to make a film about the infamous Italian American Mafia the lead role of Don Corleone was one of the most sought after in the business. Director Francis Coppola suggested Marlon Brando for the post but movie bosses had their doubts until they viewed an anonymous screen test by an old man.
The man turned out to be Brando, then only in his mid-forties, under heavy make-up.
Coppola’s own daughter Sofia actually appears in all three films in different roles from the baby Michael in the first to Mary Corleone, an adult woman in the third.
A familiar looking street scene that could remind you of any number of gangster films. The fantastic backgrounds are a credit to the artists.
For the manual doesn't help.
Huge limousines scroll from both directions obscuring your view and making the sprite invisible at the most inopportune moments and bullets fly through the air with all the grace of a brick. It's best to take on each hazard one at a time as dodging bullets becomes impossible with more than two hoods on your tail at the same time.
Villains' bodies litter the sidewalk in a bloody mess and remain there throughout.
Pram pushers and policemen wander aimlessly, oblivious to the gun battles going on all about them, and they don't bat an eye unless you send a bullet tearing into their flesh.

And so it continues with only the year and the scenarios changing.
From Las Vegas gun fights to a luxurious marina in Miami, the basic shoot 'em up action remains the same. The final showdown in the 1980s has the player defending the most important Mafia bosses from airborne assassins in a 'chopper. Certain icons can be collected during the game that advance your position, but, apart from the Red Cross package that doesn’t restore nearly enough energy, you can’t work out what they do.
Musically, the game's not bad at all. Although the original Godfather theme tune could not be used. The various gun shots and groans definitely add to the blasting, especialy in the Operation Wolf-type scenes, and the way the main sprite twists and turns on his toes to shoot over left and right shoulders almost made me reconsider the game's appeal but. Sadly, the characters are too nondescript to be convincing.
Untortunately, Godfather fails to capture the essence or atmosphere of the films and as a standalone game it's not much of a success.
Coming on six disks doesn't help and the constant disk swapping during levels is very annoying. Having only a limited life span might be an accurate reflection of the times and your character's lifestyle, but it's not conducive to the gaming experience. Die and it's right back to the beginning. The Godfather might have made a brilliant arcade adventure game, but as a shoot 'em up it adds little to the genre.

A battle that nearly resulted in a crippling defeat for Napoleon but which, in the end, was turned into a stunning victory. Quatre Bras was the first encounter between Napoleon and Wellington and ended in an inconclusive stalemate, while the Battle of Waterloo represented the final rout of Napoleon and his global ambitions of conquest.
Each battle has a preset number of moves available which, when completed, signals the end of the game.
You can either set your own objectives for each scenario or use those of the real battles which are documented in the excellent manual. A turn consists of movement and combat phases. Movement can only be made if enough movement points have been collected to move onto an adjacent hexagonal square.
The number of movement points necessary depends on the type of terrain you wish to move on to. Combat involves artillery fire and close range fisticuffs or a combination of the two.
The eventual outcome of each encounter is decided by a complex formula of unit strength in conjunction with attack, defense and movement ratings. For added realism, reinforcements can enter the fray at any time, but such additional troops will abide by the historical accuracy of the sim. A battery of statistics are also available to help give an idea on how each side is fairing and there's a useful strategic map for an overview of troop movements.
For added value, Impressions have also included a Construction Kit disk which enables a player to define their own game parameters and create entirely new battles from the same era. Simple to use, the Kit can create and modify the game's hex maps, military pieces and even the rules ot the game.
In all, Great Napoleonic Battles is a polished wargame which owes its appeal to its simplicity.

This time it's new publishers. Flair Software, who’ve come up with the goods in an arcade adventure which is radically
different to Accolade’s RPG- inspired gorefest.
After being visited by the ghost of a dead relative, who wants Elvira to claim back his castle from an evil King, she is shown two globes containing the two worlds she must conquer before she can enter the castle. In retufn for her efforts she will be crowned queen of Transylvania.
The choice of which world to enter first is up to you and, once chosen, the quest begins. The two environments, Arctic Earth and the Under World of Fire, each contain their own individual puzzles and monsters and are populated with an assortment of snake-like worms, slugs, flesh-ripping birds, wizards and ogres.
54 THE ARCADE GAME forms the parallax scrolls as onyth smoothly and impressively as vjsjjs r Elvira's animation. But don't ¦ be fooled by her feminine houses attire - with a sharp swish of her wrist she can send forth any number of weapons including knives, throwing stars and flaming torches.

Tel: 0444 831 761 As with French fashion, Gallic software has always been just that little bit more smartly presented than our home-grown stuff. However, whilst their releases often border on the weird and lose out on playability, our French chums nevertheless know how to breathe new life into a tired format. Worth And South was a perfect example of this, and now Infogrames
have come up with the goods in this revamp of tennis.
Ordinarily, there isn’t a lot you can do with the sport itself, but as Sensible Software showed in their 3D incarnation for Palace, simply mirroring the number of shots in the real sport can make for a very good simulation. Thus, by adding some neat animation touches to the odd-looking players, Infogrames have created two gangly competitors who make up in terms of flexibility what they lose in general aesthetics. The court is viewed in the customary third-person perspective from behind the nearest player, and as the ball is played from side-to-side, the screen scrolls to follow its move
ment. Despite sounding a rather cumbersome system, this adds an almost film-like quality to the proceedings.
MOODY STARS Tantrums and tennis seem to go hand in hand, especially in the high-eaming league. The likes of Doris Becker, Jimmy Connors, and, of course, John McEnroe are all famed for matching the word 'fault' with an F-word of their own! Wimbledon just wouldn't be the same without it To earn money and seeding, lournaments can be chosen al your discretii Opting lor the high-earning 'show' matches can mean missing out on important league matches, though.
And, as the screen frantically follows the ball during long- lasting rallies, the scrolling remains perfectly smooth.
These rallies are where Advantage Tennis succeeds over its rivals. In the past, companies have shied away trom the fast-paced aspect of the game and, although Palace's, UBI Soft's and Loriciels' games have been adequately playable, it isn't until you’ve experienced net play in the Infogrames game that you realise the true potential of binary tennis.
Another major benefit the game boasts is an instinctive control system, with the player plotting their shots almost perfectly using incredibly simple joystick controls.
These allow the player to respond to their opponent's high lobs or sneaky net shots quickly and with pin-point accuracy. In addition, the typically comprehensive Infogrames’ option panel also allows you to add particular shots to your capabilities (smashes, through the legs, etc.) as well as tinkering with the many parameters within the game.
Apart from the obvious limitations of the sport itself.
Advantage Tennis is a near- faultless rendition of the popular sport. By looking at previous tennis games, Infogrames have taken and added to the graphical style of Palace's game creating dubious-looking but thoroughly controllable players who bob, twist mid-jump, and even stomp on their racquets after a duff shot. Additionally, though, they have completely ignored the playing systems favoured by others in the sub-genre, and their method is far more user-friendly - not to mention accurate and responsive - than any I have encountered before. I have always been a fan of the Tennis genre, and
up until now always considered UBI's Pro Tennis Tour and the Palace game as the best on offer. With their innovative Advantage Tennis, though, Infogrames have lobbed those out of the court and are seeded number one as far as I am concerned.
Steve Merrett ISP NEW BALLS, PLEASE From its refined beginnings as a sport for the Gentry, Tennis has evolved into a fast-paced business, far removed from its delicate origins. Gone are the long flowing dresses favoured by the ladies, replaced by short skirts for minimum hindrance, and similarly the pleated trousers have given way to shorts and cycling shorts.
Tennis is now given over almost entirely to speed and agility, with new racquets created for optimum shot strength and players given specific training for weaknesses and limitations. In addition, top-seeded players now won't cross the road for the meagre E100 Fred Perry slogged for, with prize money now regularly exceeding half-a-million pounds.

R. R.P. £30.99 CHARACTER BIL-DING Bil is the classic
Machiavellian character seen in many a James Bond film. The
richest man on planet Dion, he will stop at nothing to get
what he wants. In true Bond-style, he invites you to his
offices as a guest and puts all his leisure facilities at your
disposal. Needless to say, you decline his bribes and let
his ostentatious behaviour fuel your mission. In the comer of
his office is a handy four- sided teleporter with a symbol on
each face. By walking into the appropriate symbol you can
beam to another point on the planet.
Remember the codes you use and you can beam directly back again.
JL Two years after the events in Damocles, and a spell inside, our hero emerges from the Time Warp prison on Metis for a new adventure. With dreams of retirement and a 50,000,000 cred reward for saving the planet he's going to have some fun. Yet things on the world are not as harmonious as he'd like, and industrial mining tycoon P.C. Bil is planning to rip Ihe heart out of the planet the Merc fought so hard to save.
Hanging up the pipe and slippers for a little while longer, you decide to save the environment one last time.
1H E DION CRISIS Aided by a computer sidekick, Benson, you'll quickly realise just how big a task this is going to • be. The planet is huge, with 3D polygon buildings littering the landscape, and there are at least four more planets to explore.
Transport plays a major role in the success of your mission.
However, although the public ' system is easily accessible, taxis and space shuttles are free while enjoying P.C. Bits legendary hospitality. This 'hospitality' doesn't last long, though. Once exploring on your own you realise that 50,000,000 creds is not as much money as it was two years ago. A 60 second taxi ride suddenly costs more than a beachside apartment on Venus!
You can walk and run but most of the buildings you visit are very far apart and take days to reach.
BLE ONLY EG !30.99 The main reason for taking a cab around the world is to get information. The various drivers pilots impart tit-bits about P.C. Bil and drop clues on how to-reach him. One driver lets slip that Bil’s standing for president and that you would make a great candidate. It doesn't take a genius to work out what to do next! In fact, the programmers have included six separate solutions to the game, five of which are included inside the box in sealed envelopes. Each one gives a varying degree of the solution from 50 to 90 percent. The last solution remains a secret for the
player to discover.
Interaction with the virtual world is limited to picking up objects, examining them and talking to people. There are also opportunities to trade and sell objects collected in the Trading Posts with hagglers preferring to operate with commodities although they'll take your cash if you ask them nicely. Slipping inside ground vehicles, spacecraft and aircraft is also possible if you have the right key and or money. The latter also doubles as a ground vehicle, allowing you to speed across the planet's surface. By suddenly pulling up the nose, it's possible to leave the atmosphere for the
occasional dog fight with Bil's private fleet.
Vast the world may be, detailed it's not, and although there are lots of buildings to explore, including Bosher's Bar, the Bank and Space Ports, their contents are as interesting as the complete memoirs of Donald Sinden. Uncle's Casino, where you can gamble for the jackpot of up to 50 million and disrupt the economy at the same time, consists of a large four-walled room and a single square machine. Most of the buildings have more than six floors with four of them totally empty!
Apart from the space shoot 'em up much later in the game, it's the usual ‘gather object, find clues and progress'. It’s feasible to wander around Dion for hours without accomplishing anything.
Sound throughout is limited to pings, pops and grinding noises: nothing is really special and apart from the jet engine noises it's unconvincing and lacking. I prefer a more involved adventure.

on an additional slip ol paper (in this case it was hidden between two maps and passed almost unnoticed), and the shots on the packaging are from the PC version.
As is usual with most flight simulations the presentation in this is excellent. The manual is large, and full of stories, biographies and bits of information that no aircraft or military enthusiast should be without. Very little of this has any relevance to the game. And. Provided you found your Amiga instruction sheet, you can play the game without opening the book.
First impressions on loading were good. There are plenty of menus and options to check out, and you get a digitised picture of each ace pilot plus a short resume of their careers. If diving headlong into the First World War isn't your idea of relaxed game-playing, you can start off slowly on a training mission or zip about pot-shotting Jerry then hit the escape key before they get a chance to fire back.
There's an awful delay between selecting a mission and it actually loading.
Although the graphics are really nice, with the machine running in 32-colour mode, this leads to the slowest han- Be careful who you shoot at as It’s difficult to tell the enemy from your own planes from a distance.
Dling game I have ever seen.
On a high detail level it can run as slow as one trame per second, and even with minimal detail and wire-frame aircraft the game is still too sluggish to be playable.
SCREEN SCENE Likewise, there are problems with the sound effects: they're nicely digitised, but the drone of the engine is extremely annoying and cannot be switched oft. All of this plays havoc with the Amiga's memory, which restricts the game to one meg machines
- and even then there's a warning in the manual that it might
have trouble running even with the extra memory.
Naturally you start off as a raw recruit, with no medals, no rank and no handle-bar moustache. The missions range from relatively easy tasks, such as shooting unarmed observation balloons, to intercepting enemy squadrons. You don’t fly alone as you're usually teamed with a squadron of rather unpleasant pilots. Your comrades, when not getting shot down, have a nasty habit of letting you shoot up a plane then diving in at the last minute to claim the kill.
Medals are awarded for valour 'above and beyond the call of duty', which basically means you have to take on a large number of enemy aircraft single handed. As your THE RFC NEEDS YOU!
Contrary to popular beliet, a pilot rarely saw a plane during his training period. Instead he would be contined to quarters while he grew, and learned how lo maintain, his handlebar moustache. A pilot also had to be honourable in victory, which meanl he had to show respect, rather than a v-sign, to downetFpilots.

Telephone (08) 234 5050 Fax (08) 352 8305 THE SPRITE STUFF There's certainly a lot of action squeezed into the game's seven levels and the playability has been set so It's not a walkover but isn't incredibly hard, either. The 32- colour graphics are superb and some of the sprites are gigantic linely-detailed creations, making your tiny sprite seem even smaller by comparison. The super-soldier you control looks just as much a mutant as Ihe creatures he lights as he’s a rather squat character in much Ihe same mould as Ihe sprite used in Ocean's Total Recall. Each level comes with its own graphic
style ranging Irom the molten lava pits and volcanic landscape ol the first level to the futuristic wasteland populated with all kinds of mechanical and robotic monstrosities.
T’s the 21st Century and a massive explosion at a nulcear weapons factory has spread a radioactive cloud over much of the old Soviet Union and Finland.
Now sealed off, reports have started to trickle in of strange mutated creatures roaming the 300 square miles of radioactive wasteland.
Beyond recognition, these once-human creatures have been transformed into hideous abominations intent on gaining control of the abandoned nuclear plant and unleashing its nuclear arsenal on the rest of the world.
As a genetically-engineered super soldier you've been hand-picked for the task of stopping the mutants from carrying out their plans and destroying the nuclear weapons plant for good.
This somewhat hackneyed scenario is the basis for 21 st Century’s new horizontally- scrolling shoot 'em up which pits the player against hoards of mutant nasties and renegade soldiers in your attempts to save the day.
The first three levels of the game involve yomping across a variety of radioactive wastelands including a volcanic area with steaming pits of lava and firebreathing dragons to contend with, a frozen landscape full of ED- 209 lookalikes and huge super tanks, and an ancient castle which comes with its own resident collection of subnormals waiting to kick your butt. Once you've managed to blast your way through that lot, it's onto the nuclear base where a motly collection of super mutants lie in wait, including a huge mother alien spitting its acid- based venom in all directions.
Despite the game's graphical finesse, Rubicon - attempts to cram too much action into too small a space with the result that some poor coding ensures the action slows up considerably when the screen becomes unduly packed with flying pterodactyls, rockets or some of the larger sprites. Most of the sprites are also poorly animated which only serves to undermine the mood created by the lush level graphics.
There’s a whole host of power-ups on offer, ranging from a bog-standard laser to jetpacks, heat-seeking missiles, a napalm thrower and laser bolts, but these are merely window dressing used | to tart up a game that offers nothing new and to hide the fact that the game offers little challenge to the experienced gamesplayer. Nice graphics, shame about the game...

After the runaway success of the first Lemmings game, which never left the charts all year, the inevitable sequel looks set to repeat its predecessor's spectacular success.
The new disk (available as a stand-alone game or a marginally cheaper data disk) has all the addictive ingredients of the first game. Levels range from 'Tame' through to 'Havoc' and feature some ingenious puzzles and traps to tax even the most ardenf of Lemmings addicts as you seek to guide your suicidal critters over some pretty arduous assault courses.
There's no denying that Psygnosis and Lemmings creators, DMA Design, have gone all out for value for money, and the 100 levels will keep you busy for a long, long time, but the fact that there’s nothing new on offer is a bit disappointing.

Understandable that Psygnosis don't want to give too much away with this new offering, but a few more Lemming icons other than the standard diggers and climbers would have been a nice touch. A little more variety in the graphics department wouldn’t have gone amiss, either, as it all starts to look a bit 'samey' after a while.

Lemmingy?!
RUFMCILMDG 1EMMMGS worth playing. Fortunately, the remaining 80 levels offer more challenging puzzles and certainly had me pulling out my hair in frustration more than once. In fact, they're probably a little too hard in places and, if it wasn't for some handy access codes (Yes, I know, I’m nothing but a snivelling cheat), I might have given up on SUICIDE IS PAINLESS There can be tew gamesplayers who have not succumbed to Lemmings-mania during the past year, but here’s a beginner's guide for those guilty ol just such a heinous crime.
The aim ot each level is simple: guide a small army of suicidal lemmings across an obstacle-filled screen to the safety ot their home. This isn't as easy as it sounds as lots of hidden traps await our hapless friends as well as some mind- bogglingly devious puzzles. A minimum number ot lemmings have to be rescued each go, and it you don't make the quota you have to play the level again (and again, and again...). Once completed, an access code means you can skip that particular level when you come to play the game again, so write it down and keep it sate... At the bottom ot each screen is a
bank ol icons. Each icon depicts a lemming performing a different task such as climbing, digging or building. By clicking on the appropriate icon with the mouse pointer and then on a lemming you can make the lurry critters do exactly what you want. This is harder than it at first appears, as timing a move Is all-important and if you slip up your lemmings will do what comas naturally: hurl themselves oft cliffs to their doom!
To make matters even worse, there's also a time limit tor each level - boy, they sure don't make lite easy!
Reaching some of the later levels all together! Even when you've sussed how to complete a particularly devious level, it's often a matter of precision timing which sometimes can prove just too pernickety to pull off.
Oh No, More Lemmings is exactly what you’d expect it to be and it you liked the first game then you'll definitely find "this to your liking. At £19.99 the data disk does seem a tad expensive, but it’s one game which will certainly bear the test of time.
You'll probably still be playing this a year from now!

sim's original level data.
This doesn’t merely entail some superficial tarting up of the original Populous graphics, though. The editor comes with five completely finished worlds which can be imported to replace those of the existing Green world.
These include a Western world complete with saloon bars and cowboys and Indians and a bizarre Fast Food world populated by gigantic pizzas and bags of chips.
Others include a futuristic Space world, a world based on the French Revolution and a Generic world which consists of very basic building blocks.
But that's not the end to this marvellous program’s capabilities. It's also possible to import IFF files from other graphic programs and incorporate these into your own designs or, by using the somewhat basic paintbox options of the Editor, change the original Populous designs to those more to your liking.
Graphic tools at your disposal include draw, fill, and merge options as well as a 16-colour palette. Once you're happy with your newly-designed homeland and sprites, all that's required is to save them to disk and load them into the original Populous.
Specific game parameters can also be altered, such as the birth and death rates of your subjects, the level of Manna that each household produces, and the intelli- GOT THE WHOLE WORLD IN YOUR HANDS... y, the Populous World Editor isn't the work of Romford-based but has been designed and programmed by Alexander Kochann ir Reift, two highly talented graphic artists. Hailing Irom . The two men were so impressed with the original game that they set about designing their own gaming worlds for a friend, and, as one idea led to another, they ended up with a complete editing program.

I displayed of individuals (to pro- s better weapons). Fatal r can be made harmful, bottomless turned into shallow bays every form of disaster controlled or allowed to run unchecked.
Using the editor is simplicity itself, even for those of very limited technical ability.
If you can find your way around Dpaint, then you'll have no problem with this.
It's so intuitive that I didn't even have to consult the manual before I was busily designing my own rather abstract lands. Perhaps the Paintbox tools aren't brilliant, but the ability to import IFF files more than makes up for this failing. What makes the program even more appeal- :h is a ing is the price t very competitive £14.99. Definitely a must for all Populous fans.

• Switch mode designl _ £44.95 British Made Ah, 1984... Madness
reigned supreme in the charts, alongside Bucks Fizz and Modern
Romance, and Maggie Thatcher was in her second term of office.
The year also saw the release of one of the most
eagerly-awaited computer game sequels ever - Jet Set Willy,
the follow-up to the classic Manic Miner.
Despite being riddled with more bugs than the Kennedy clan's bedrooms, Jet Set Willy was the first ever arcade adventure, with the player controlling the nou- veau-riche ex-Miner, Willy, as he collects the glasses from around his house after an almighty binge. Now, after eight years absence from our screens, JSWhas been converted to the Amiga, with the extra screens its sequel contained added as a bonus.
In converting Jet Sets predecessor Manic Miner to the 16-bit formats. Software Projects hedged their bets by including both the dated Spectrum original and a smart new version with flash scrolling and numerous other bells and whistles. Oddly enough, the original won the most fans, so it's a great surprise to note that the sequel only contains the updated version. The main problem with the graphic style that Software Projects have opted for is that somehow the games just aren't the same.
Whereas Manic Miner was originally a series of singlescreen levels, the updated version went for scrolling screens, and the flick-screen mansion of JSW has been dumped in favour of a scrolling building - losing a lot of the game's character in the process.
All the old favourite rooms are present: The Attic (minus the bug!), The Wine Cellar, and The Kitchens.
However, the scrolling means that they aren't named now.
Retained from JSWII are the space scenes, with Willy boldly going where no has gone before One of the nicest things about the original was that its rooms were revealed gradually as progress was made.
Hence, rooms such as 'The Attic', 'The Sewers', and 'The Garden' became catchwords among fans - sadly, the names have been lost in the transition and, although this is the extended version, a few of the 133 rooms are conspicuous by their absence. Although this sounds rather damning, fans of the original will instantly be at home with the layout of the rooms, and the weird selection of nasties have all retained the traits of their forerunners. In addition, the actual gameplay stands up quite well, with intricate puzzles requiring pixel-perfect positioning and timing. In all, the Amiga
version of Jet Set Willy, whilst not the game perhaps I was hoping for, is still a playable affair.
However, I can’t help but wish that Software Projects had put the original version on the disk, too, then everybody would be happy.
Steve Merrett BUG-GERME!
In keeping with its 8-blt parent, Amiga Willy also has Its fair share ol annoying bugs. Although it’s not as severe as the ones that plagued Spectrum owners, care must be taken or your entire stock ol lives will beealenaway. If Willy dies due to falling oft a ledge, he is automatically placed in the last position before he fell - and this can be next to the ledge! This isannoylng asthe game reguires pixel-perfect positioning and Willy must often move as far off the edge ol a platform as possible il he is to clear a large gap.

SUPERHEROES Following their Bond compilation, Domark have series ot butch heroes who, more or less, fit the tion. Unfortunately, though, compared to their stars, the games themselves are light-weight stuff. Starting with System 3’s diso' Last Ninja II, it is obvious to see why the Harrow-based abandoned this 8-bit update. Rushed out by Activision, Ninja II has none of the charm or playability of the 8-bit originals and looks even weaker when compared to Ninja III. Bland puzzles and ordinary gameplay relegal this to the Chuck Norris league of martial art heroes, rather than up with the Bruce
Lees. U.S. G's Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade is next, and erwise hot licence. See Indy jump, see Indy run, s to the The p above r Domark’s Spy Who Loved Me, a multi-stage shoot 'em up comprising vertically-scrolling and Op Wolt-style stages. Unfortunately, U.S. G's Strider II is stretching credibility somewhat, as it bears no relation whatsoever to the original coin-op.
Gone are Hru Strider's athletic powers and agility, instead he can turn into a clunky robot which has all the agility of a dustbin. A substandard collection, there’s nothing to recommend in Superheroes, and this represents dire value for money.
Steve Merrett, CU's resident iskin flint, peruses the veritable cornucopia of budget games set for release this month... CHAMPIONS 53% Famed for their Man Utd.

Whilst the mixing of the three oorts is commend- DOMARK OUT NOW £29.99 * RICK DANGEROUS only the Footy is above Despite playability shortcomings, Man Utd is still a solid if basic - kick around, with large sprites and an easy control system, but don't expect it to be as playable as its from dodgy ( firebird's square-jawed
hero’s ¦ debut gets another airing, and he’s just as fresh as when he first appeared. Basically an of the popular platform W cArtakes an Indy-style set over five stages and mixes in some of the most devious traps and pitfalls you are ever likely to encounter. Graphically, the game is excellent, with squat and detailed sprites set against deliberately bland backdrops - which even feature a black and white mode for B-movie buffs.
The five levels are incredibly tough, with loads of natives and Nazis to shoot, prod, or blow up, and a series of secret rooms awaiting your attention Rick D is one of the best platforms games I've ever played, and is an absolute steal at its new price. What’s more its XBKKSS as budget must-haves. Get one refined sequel. As for Squash, this i detection which is hampered by the odd | if the court had been viewed from directly t would have been more playable, but as it s confusing. Finally, for those who want earn a packet by organising bouts and training fighters, i elements of Boxing
management are catered for (except there’s no Don King fright wig supplied), but it doesn't capture any of the excitement of the real thing. This is mainly due to the hands-off fight sequences, but even so it still doesn't gel.
Champions is let down by the amateurishness of its players.

RAINBOW ISLANDS This is quite simply the best budget game you are ever likely to see. After months of wrangling between Ocean and Microprose, the Mancunian giant finally won the right to release Graftgold's nearperfect conversion of the Taito coin-op, and after selling bucketfuls as a full-price game, here it is as a budget release. The sequel to Bubble Bobble, Rainbow Islands is a seven-level platform affair, starring the ever-cute Bub as he tries to clamber to the top of the screen. The levels are based on set UBI SOFT OUT NOW £39.99 92% QUEST AND GLORY Cobbling together a batch of more
cerebral games for compilation is an idea which is long overdue, so thank goodness for UBI Soft’s Quest And Glory pack. Comprising Midwinter, Iron Lord, BAT, Cadaver, and Bloodwych, this pack will outlast virtually any other on the market thanks to the lasting nature of its contents. Both Midwinter and Cadaver are recognised as classics of the arcade adventure genre, and none of the rest are by any means weak. Cadaver was the Bitmaps' first exploration into the adventure genre, whilst Midwinter takes you to the icy heights as you seek to recruit a party to overpower an evil General.
The others are basic extensions of the style set either in space or in catacombs of some sort, and round off this excellent compilation perfectly.
Themes, such as Vampires, Toys, and Armies, and along the way, numerous theme-related nasties leap at our dungaree-clad hero. Pressing the firebutton, however, launches Bub’s secret weapon - a deadly rainbow. Not only do these kill nasties, but they can also be used to'climb across previously inaccessible areas. With loads of bonuses, arcade-quality graphics and some of the most addictive gameplay you'll ever witness, Rainbow Islands is quite easily a contender for the best Amiga game of all time.
Everything about it is stunning, and I find it impossible to fault.
A top-notch budget release, Rainbow Islands is THE essential purchase and if you are a member of the trio who haven't already seen it, bought it and played it to death, do yourself a favour and do so now. The world needs more games like this.
THE HIT SQUAD OUT NOW £7.99 97% HIT SOUAD OUT NOW £35.95 Ocean's compilation machine offloads another batch of recent releases. Opening with the martial arts larkings of Shadow Warriors, we are into playable coin-op territory.
This is an en]oyable extension of the Double Dragon ttieme, but lasts longer and is infinitely more playable. More arcade tomfoolery next from Golden Axe. Converted by Dementia, Axe is a near-perfect coin-op conversion. Graphically, the sprites are large and complement the attractive backdrops nicely.
However, the game is a little loo easy, but as compilation fodder, though, it’s excellent value.
Virgin's Super Otl-Road Racer is up next, and is probably the best variant the limited Super Sprint sub-genre can offer. The conversion rush, and it certainly shows.
However, this an excellent compilation and well worth the outlay.

scene, UBI Soft’s second gathering of titles offers a nice
balance of game styles. The hlgh-point of the compilation is
Speedball II which is still THE most playable futuresport to
date. It’s fast, it's rough and it will take you ages to top
the Speedball league. And once you've done that, it's time to
strap on those pads for TV Sports Football. I was never - ™
and still aren’t - a fan of this. Although the presentation
is excellent, it doesn't play particularly well and I can't s
modil ilimliru irnal.
SAINT DRAGON The Sales Curve's first solo project as Storm, Saint Dragon is a conversion of the rarely-seen Jaleco coin-op.
Unfortunately, Storm's game was released at roughly the same time as Activision’s Dragon Breed conversion and, as a result, was overshadowed by the slightly more playable game.
That’s not to say that Saint Dragon is a bad conversion, though. It's more like a mediocre one. It covers the usual horizontally-scrolling territory, with the player controlling their snake-like spaceship as they weave through the game's five stages. As well as a protective tail which can be wound around the ship for use as a shield, it features upgradable lasers which are used to blast a path through the countless aliens that line the levels.
Presentation-wise Saint Dragon is probably the closest you could hope to get, but the 16-colour palette seems slightly underused, giving the graphics a pale, washed out look. In addition, the game's speed seems to have been sacrificed so that the conversion could retain the coin-op's huge sprites, and this results in a very pedestrian blaster with little to set the adrenalin coursing. Saint Dragon is a pleasing but flawed budget release which, at the reduced price, is probably worth the eight quid outlay.
SOCCER STARS The Footy genre has long since been championed by Anco’s Kick Off II, and consequently the other three games supporting it in this compilation look rather stale.
Leading with Anco's classic and its stunning playability and brilliant lasting appeal, the rest of the compilation consists ot the decidedly fourth division Emlyn Hughes' International Soccer and Microprose Soccer, to the Vauxhall Conference struggler, Gazza
II. With the exception of Emlyn, these all use the overhead
view, but none can compete with Kick Off II.
Anco’s game features an easy to use but thorough control system, along with more shot styles than any other game, and the others just can't compete. Soccer Stars is only worth buying for Kick Off II, and that's cheaper as a stand-along product, so you know what to do... THE HIT SQUAD OUT NOW £7.99 65% EMPIRE OUT NOW £25.99 65% Capturing the manic essence ot Britain's most-loved 70s comedy show was a far from easy task, but Core Design’s multi-stage shoot 'em up did it perfectly. Filled to the brim with dead parrots, Spam, and the expected Spanish Inquisition (‘no-one expects the Spanish
Inquisition'), Monty also contains platform sections where the hero, Gumby, must collect as many tins of Spam as possible before entering key screens for an argument or a session in spotting key parts of the body. The graphics are deliberately low-key in their colouring, but are extremely effective. Monty Python is well worth a buy and is one of the most imaginative licences the Amiga has seen.
Help but think that Cinemaware hoped the presentation would disguise this.
Rick Dll is up next with enough puzzles to keep the most ardent platform fan busy. Next up is Mirrorsoft’s epic Falcon sim which still compares with the best. True, it's starting to show its age and isn't as smooth as some of the more recent sims, but it is easy to get into and offers a good variety of things to do. Last but not least, we end with Midwinter, that frosty little number that needs no introduction. Top League certainly lives up to its name and is one of the best 'variety' compilations of late.

LPD37 PLAY IT SAFE • 1C HACK 'N' SLASH CITY Combat is usually the crux of an RPG, but with Knightmare it’s considerably tougher than most. Many would-be dungeon delvers are no doubt tearing out their hair because of the resilience of the monsters in the game, so here are some tips to push the balance your way.
First of all, keep in mind that your party is faster than nearly all the beasts in the game, so dance around your opponents, leaping in for the attack before they can react. I've discovered the best tactic is to lure out a group of goblins (or whatever) and race through the corridors, turning to fire off a dart spell or a couple of quick hacks. Even better, find a door and entice the monsters to follow you, then slam the door on them - it will stun 'em while your fighters can lay into them with their swords. The added advantage is that you can rest while they mope around outside the door - but
watch out for food levels.
Matt Regan dons his silly helmet and prepares to lead bewildered adventurers through Tony Crowther’s weird and wonderful Knightmare... WELCOME TO MY KNIGHTMARE... Getting started property is the key to success. The ideal party is a samurai and gladiator up front, followed by a wizard and priest. Insectors and ghouls make the best spell casters, while trolls and ores are good fighters. Remember to swap wands and weapons around to give everyone a chance to increase their skills across the board - but make sure that you concentrate on their primary skills. Weapons are linked to certain
professions: the three-pronged knives (found in the first quest) increase samurai levels, penknives increase adventurer levels, and'knives will advance gladiators in levels.
It's vital to stock up on food before entering the quests, and rabbits are the best source. There are certain squares in the garden that generate rabbits, and hacking them creates juicy rabbit pies, so carry a dozen or so into each quest.
Once a character’s stamina reaches zero with no food, you're guaranteed problems, so avoid the situation wherever possible. Later on you'll have the chance to get spider legs, but don't squander the chance to take advantage of the unlimited rabbit supply!
Quest, seems to have no use apart from damaging the party if they walk into it.
Wait a minute, though: if the party loses a member, take the heart back here and throw it into the Sprig. Hey presto, the character’s brought back to life! Look out for switches on the walls, especially once you come across the boat, as they'll reveal further switches in other parts of the complex. The Prison that makes up the last part of the Shield Quest has caused some people problems: they obviously haven't looked properly for false walls. Once you’ve found the button inside the secret passage, beware the monsters you'll have released from the central compound, and retreat to the small
room to use the door as protection and a weapon.
Bear in mind that the last foes on each quest are EXTREMELY tough, so prepare and rest well before attempting to combat them. There's no shame in running away if you haven't got the resources to fight.
FUN AND GAMES Scour the garden for clothes and sup- I plies before entering the first quest (by I throwing the stick at the guardian). For a laugh, try to locate the cottage hidden in I the garden - it's through the maze of HAPPY HUNTING The little touches in the game are what makes it special, but on the other hand they can cause severe bruising when you hit your head against the wall. For example, the Sprig of Life and Death, found near the beginning of the Shield Uh."n von"“I m°Sl °' 'hem succumb even,ua,|y to a combination ol sword blows and magic. Use Dart, Cloud and when you tind the
Wand ot Pain, Fury to keep the ghoulies at bay - but watch health and stamina levels.

Leson lough, so tempting lame in t the worth exploring Is the Information on the spells that priests aoO mages learn as the* practice their an.
Here's a quick list el the earlier spells and their effects: REM - Helps the party to regain stats while asleep FITNESS - Restores stamina RESTORE - Restores Health GLOW - Makes those tin* objects on the lloot Hash CLOUD - A useful offensi»e spell against goblins, etc OPEN - Opens doors!
DART - A handy offensive spell REMOVE - Used enough will turn false walls lo mist QUICKEN - Speeds up the characters' movement CONFUSE - Contuses the hell out ot me... Al first I didn't think spells sech as Fitness and Restore had any eHect, but there is a knack to it. II there’s a character in front ol the priest he'll be hit with the spell. Alternatively, cast it and Immediately step forward (Quicken helps in this) to cateh the rays. Bouncing the spell oil doors works as well. Cast spells into hordes tor later use. Rememher to periodically increase the spell level (by left-clicking on
Ihe number al the top ol the scroll) so the mages learn more quickly.
Trees and you'll need your wits about you. Inside you'll find a cupboard, opened with a key, containing a seemingly useless spade, but once you re-enter the garden you can use it to dig up the violet flowers for tood. Be careful not to dig near water, or you might Hood yourselt. The well on the second level of the third quest may not reveal its purpose at first, but return later on to see if you've triggered Ihe event, One word of warning regarding boats.
It’s a good idea to stand a pace back from the water and eradicate sharks with dart spells so that the coast (no pun intended) is clear for exploring.
Likewise, use the situation to your advantage by keeping away from the shore and pelting trolls, etc, with spells from a distance, occasionally sneaking in for some rapid sword work. You can even sleep onboard! Whatever happens, try not to miss the boat, as a watery death is guaranteed if you accidentally step into the sewers.
That should be enough to see you through the first quest or two, and don’t forget to save the game every tew minutes - it can help enprmously and takes the worry out ot exploration.

Poor old 'Ratty' is having trouble with Operation Stealth because he can't find the piece of elastic with which to disable the helicopter's bomb release mechanism.

JEWEL BE SORRY
P. Friend and his wife are spending their spare time in Saudi
Arabia fighting their way through The Final Battle, and
although they have managed to find five of the magic crys
tals (Blue, Grey. Vellow, White and Green) they are now stuck.
This is a long and complicated game, so the best I can do is
lead you onwards a short way from where you will have found
the Blue crystal in the Huge Cavern. Leave the cave and return
to Ihe wagon in the forest. From here, go NE, N, E,
E. Up the mechanism chain, and Up again (but don't carry a lit
torch - even at night).
Then go East, unravel the vest with a double click and give it to Crysella. Get Crysella lo shoot an arrow at the rope bridge. East (across the mended rope bridge) before going in. Get Jack to go up through the gap at the fop of the door. Next, go South and pull the lever there. In the Castle you'll find a key, which, if you return to the courtyard, will unlock the gates.
LET'S TWIST AGAIN It appears that before I arrived to bring light into your darkness someone had a query regarding the waterspout in Lucasfilm’s Loom. Roger Thompson from Witham in Essex has sent in this solution. First go to the graveyard and examine the thorns, this will scare a rabbit out to wake up the owl. Now move to the small woods before Ihe graves and examine the trees to get the Night Vision spell.
Travel back to the village and enter the hut with the gold on the floor. Go to the back of the room until 'darkness' appears as an icon. Cast the Night Vision spell and you will get an extra note. Examine the spinning wheel and that will give you the Straw-to- Gold spell. Now that you know the spinning spell, this can be reversed to destroy the spinning waterspout which is blocking your exit from the island.
DIP STICK Andrew Wiltshire from Chippenham is onboard a luxury liner with Larry Latter. Not being content to lie on the sun-deck and ogle the girls, both of these nerds are desperately looking for a way off the ship. Our baffled pair complain that they can't find a knife which they can use to cut the rope which is holding up the lifeboat. The simple reason they can't find it is because there isn't one. Instead they should head for the bridge and look for the large lever which is used lo lower the lifeboat into the sea. Andrew also wants to know what else must be found onboard ship apart from
the bikini-top. I would suggest that you pay a visit to the cabin next door. If you time it right you can get in there and steal the sewing kit from the nightstand.

WANDERING IN WONDERLAND?
It's bad enough when you can't solve a game, but when you can't solve it with the aid ol a Help system, you really are in trouble.
Despite using the in-built help system which comes with Wonderland. Gard Vaaler ot Norway is stuck like a dormouse in a Treacle Well - and he's definitely lost his Cheshire Cat grin. There is a tiny door in the Long Hall which big Gard can't get through. He does have the bottle of magic potion which will shrink him down to size, but he needs that to help him get the key which is in the piano in the Music Room. Having used up the potion he is again too big to get through the little door. This puzzle, like all ot the puzzles in this clever game by Magnetic Scrolls, is quite neal. What you must
do is get into the Broom cupboard and find the overalls and other items which are hidden there. You won't be able to wear the overalls because you are too big. But it you wave the fan which you will have lound, your big, lumpy body will shfink down to size. Once you climb into the overalls the white rabbit will return and all ol your troubles will disappear along with your excess weight. The other way to lose 10 pounds of ugly tat is to cut your head otf.
BOG STANDARD In the good old days it only cost a penny to 'spend a penny'. However I have received disturbing news from a reader called Philip in Victoria that in the future, inflation will become so bad that you'll need a 'flexible friend' to help you get relief. 'Where do I tind the credit card which I need to get into the toilet in Future Wars?', he asks. Philip would also like to know how to escape Irom the Crughorn's prison cell alter he foolishly [ allowed himself to be captured. I have heard I ol Super-Loos, but I never thought that they I would become that expensive.
The simple answer is that you can forget I about entering the toilet cubicles as there is I nothing ot interest in there - I should know, it [ was me who wrote all ol the graffiti on the you will tind an ugly brute called Crusher who guards the trapdoor in the floor. This trapdoor is the entrance to the Guild, but Crusher will only move aside if you can give him the correct password.
To discover the password you must approach the two thieves who lurk in the alley outside and show them the thiet sign. A word of caution to any foolish hero who approaches these two slippery customers without knowing what the thief sign is.
Instead of the password you'll get a thump on the head and a place to lie down (rather suddenly!) Until morning. Take my advice and use the following options to create the best character to play this game. Select a Thief as your basic character, then give him Fighter and Magic User skills by allocating 5 bonus points to Magic and Parry, and 10 to Strength and Weapons.
FINAL QUEST It you were very unlucky you bought your Amiga when it was bundled with a dodgy adventure game called Dungeon Quest. John Verralls of Catsfield is one of these unlucky people, but he has persevered and managed to get within a dragon's whisker ot completing this quirky game. Having used the dragon nip to kill the scaiy monster he has made his way to the laboratory where he found a comp uter elty ot the game is that you can complete it in and a man under the bench. There is a big box on the wall which John says he cannot get into or get past, so he is w ell and truly stuck. Don't
feel too disappointed if you are stuck at this point, because the answer to your problem is ndt logical at all. After using yo ur sword you must do the following moves: East, Read Sign, Use Codewheel. Search, Look Person, Look Person, Look Person, Ask Person, Reset Computer. Don't blame me, I didn't write the silly game.
The vent in the wall of your prison cell and use the gas cannister in it. Finally use the newspaper on the hole to prevent the gas Irom seeping back inlo your cell and forcing you to share the tate ol your guards.
ELEMENTARY Koen De Keyzer Irom Belgium, who signs himsell as a faithful CU Amiga reader, says he has spent hours trying to catch the Fire Elemental in Sierra's Quest for Glory It. He is pretty sure that he has to lure the Elemental into a conlined area then chuck water at it, and he's spent hours trying to push it down alleys hoping to tind a quiet spot where he can beat it up. Sadly, Koen hasn’t had a sniff of success with this technique. The real sniff he needs is a sniff ol incense. The smell of incense is very strong and this is where Ihe answer lies. In order to defeat the lire ele
mental in the Gate Plaza you will need to lead it into the street using the incense purchased Irom the healers. Once in ihe street, drop the lamp and then use water skins on ihe elemental (these must have been filled at the lountain). Now you can retrieve the lamp which will contain the fire.

So, nursing a bump, he’s handed over Demos to Steve Keen.
‘And long may he reign,’ cheers the ever-generous Dan.... SUPPLIERS’ GUIDE DOLLY MIXTURE The Anarchy-spawned Demo Dolly 9 is a six section aflair compiled by Cosby. The sections consist mostly of scrolling vector demos. Not really very exciting, but hidden away under the Archaos title is a short animation of the Bart Simpson characters from his recent video. There then follows a handful of very nice comic fantasy art pics that can be flicked through and fade in and out of each other all set to a rather nice piece of music.
17 Bit, Disk 1512,** ROLF RAP!
Thi* peculiar demo features four pieces of music that are interesting to say the least.
From the Rolf Harris Rap, with such immortal lines as ‘pump up the Aussie' and ‘jack ya kanga' and samples from Neighbours, to a cut that features some mean guitar riffs this one is quite amusing. The voice sampled on the Rolf Harris Rap is not that of our Australian chum but H doesn’t really matter as a laugh is guaranteed.

Tony Horgan has sampled actual football fans on the terraces and some over-excited Brian Moore commentary and produced a wacky mix that beats anything that ITV have to offer. All this has been set to a very catchy music track and the only thing that lets down an extremely entertaining demo is the tacky intro screen at the front, but don't let that put you off. This mix is a blast.
17 Bit, Disk 1496*** PLANE SAILING Eric Schwartz s monthly offering is very tame by his standards and very short. The latest Aerotunes demo is called the Vietnam Conflict and we wonder if he’s running out of war scenarios? The 20-second demo features a small fighter, presumably Vietnamese, flying through the sky when he spots a huge American bomber fighter racing towards him in the distance.
Yet again the coward turns tail and hides in a cloud as the US plane parks alongside him. The cheeky small plane then starts to pull faces at the bomber and gets seen from out of the corner of its eye and dives into the cloud after it.
17 Bit, Disk 1533 ?*** |o with irmof I MEGA MIX Now That’s What I Call Music may have reached number 83, but they're still stuck In the single digits on the Amiga. Now 1 contains four tracks including Dance 1990 Megamix incorporating samples galore. Unfortunately, for 512k users, the best of the four songs, Get Ready, Is for 1 meg users only. Another pain is the fact that you have to reboot the disk every time you want to change the tune, but this is a only a minor hassle.
Varksoft, Disks 212 + 213, *** don’t last.
SEE ME! CD Ok, you've heard all the spiel about how wonderful the COTV is and how you can get amaz- I ing educational software and encyclopaedias and you can even listen to Martin Luther King's 30 minute speech in sterdo, but what about the games and their graphics? Well, thanks to Diskovery you can get a small preview of one of the games in miniaturised form. The demo gives you a taster from Psygnosis' proposed CDTV flight sim. A highly detailed fighter skims over a rocky canyon-type landscape and launches a rocket at a missile that has been launched from a silo. Due to mem- oiy
restrictions the play screen without the CD-TV's capabilities is limited to only one- and-a-half inches by two-and-a-half, but it's still an impressive sight if you compare it to other own flight sim offerings.
Diskovery, Disk CDTV Micro Flight, *** MEAT KILLS If you're looking for a cure to your insatiable appetite for burgers, try this novel demo from Coma. You’ll be either in meat heaven or overdose on cowhide.
The program is packed with some great scrolling fractals, burger-shaped of course, around coupled with some very effective shading. However, the real star is the short animation set on the production line. A conveyor belt system is making burgers layer by layer. Just as the sauce and top layer bun are about to be dropped a fly lands on the meat and is covered by a huge dollop of ketchup falling from the machine. The last bun is then laid on top and the juicy morsel is ready for consumption!
17 Bit, Disk 1517 *?** CARTOON CLASSIC For anyone who’s heard of, or seen, the Japanese animated epic, Akira, they’ll know why everyone is raving about its quality animation and cinematic effects. In fact, the film is fast approaching cult status and a television series has been planned for showing in this country. However, for now, fans can pick up this PD disk, containing a selection of hi-res hand drawn pictures from the film for next to nothing. There are only six colour pictures to look at, but they’re well drawn so quality is foremost.
Well worth a look if you're a fan.
17 Bit, Disk 1488 *** PREDATOR More film stills come from TVR Productions who have put together quite a collection of Predator shots. All the pictures are in colour and rate amongst the best quality colour pics I've seen digitised. Unfortunately, they look as though they've been lifted from the video and the subject matter only consists of tightly cropped pictures of the main characters. You'll have to wait for what seems like an age to get a glimpse of the Predator and Arnie himself doesn't put in an appearance until about pic 10. Once again, the dreadful music adds nothing to the show, but
if you want to see how a really good colour grab can be done, this is for you.

Their latest one takes on the subject matter ot the Aliens film. The screen is split into four sections each showing a different digitised picture from the film.
Quality varies but the different colours used to bleach the pictures add some atmosphere even if the terrible music doesn’t. There are roughly 70 photos, but most are only worth looking at once.

* •** It's nice to see that there's still a demand for the
classic Thunderbirds’ characters. The demo begins with the
traditional Thunderbirds countdown sampled from the show and a
black and white digitised picture of Thunderbirds
2. Yeah, I can really get into this!
The count downs started, the pics are flicking by, now cue that famous music. But then it all turns into a bit of a damp squib as instead of the thunderous theme tune you're presented with some sort of electronic wishy- washy fair. Pah! If it's not the original it's not worth putting in.
Still, a few childhood memories can be relived.
17 Bit, Disk 1516**** ana annasEEDUBKi aws-rascErs TERMINAL TASTER In what appears to be a huge plug for the Budapest Computer Fair, this demo is destined to turn people away rather than attract them.
Commencing with a Terminator 2 ripoff featuring their own version of the 'droid, the T-23, there's a mixture of Terminator music and animation.
The short clip plugs the show, whilst providing a sneak look at its comical Terminator mascot, and then makes way for some serious vectors. The broken English is a pain in the bum, but hey, they are Hungarian.

THE RIPPER'S GUIDE If you dabble in music or graphics, the Ripper's Guide is sure to be of interest.
It contains a variety of rippers which will enable you to take sound samples, complete songs or graphics out ot many programs. They're all very easy to use, and work in pretty much the same way: first load the program that you want to 'borrow' the sound or graphics from, then, once loaded, reset the computer by pressing Control and the two Amiga keys. Load the ripper that you want to use and it'll scan the computer's memory for any audio graphic data that may be present. This can then be saved for use in your own programs.

Doctor Who tans are in for a real treat here because this
utility contains an entire cross-reterenced database covering
every aspect of the bumbling time-traveller's history.
When Whom has loaded, a number ol choices are offered, allowing the user to access data under a variety ot Dr Who-related topics including the cast of every episode and details about every spin-off product (books and videos, etc).
Once a topic has been selected, you’re presented with a database that uses Superbase-style controls to browse through the numerous files. A vast wealth of information is presented which gives every conceivable tit-bit about the cult series. Need to know who wrote the music lor the episode called An unearthly child'? What about the title and script writer ol the tilth program in the second season, or the video and book titles ol anything featuring the Daleks? Wonder no further, lor Whom II has the answer to these questions and very many more.
Incidentally, there seems to be a quite decent database program lurking in there too. Unfortunately, no instructions are provided so you'll have to figure it out yourself. Great tun nevertheless.

£2.30 u People who often use Workbench will be familiar with
the slowness of some of its commands and the lack of disk-space
for you to store additional data or programs.
This simple and effective program solves both problems in a single blow for not only does it run at least 12% faster than a standard Workbench, there's even 250k of disk space for you to store your own programs etc. DISKOVERY PD *** SILLY SAMPLES I rarely use the PD Utilities column to tell you about bad products, but on this occasion I decided to make an exception.
The Silly Samples disk is undoubtedly the biggest load of old crap I’ve ever heard In my entire life. Whilst the title implies that the disk contains a selection of amusing samples, what you actually get is a selection of samples obviously created by a bunch of drunken louts who not only can't use a sampler (as evidenced by the constant whine of feedback throughout every single one), but are barely even capable of coherent speech.
I suspect it would have taken a roomful of monkeys about thirty seconds to come up with something better, and even Kate Adie's more amusing. Sfay Clear!
PD Soft V482 minus ***** P 9 UTILITIES JORDPROGS Programs written in Basic rarely make an appearance on the PD circuits nowadays, but this packed disk contains a great selection ot usetul and entertaining stuff.
II you're interested in self-education. Typing Tutor provides a number ot stimulating exercises designed to increase your keyboard speed. The tutorials are self-modifying so they increase the level of challenge as your speed improves.
10 Test uses a series ot Mensa-style problems to assess your intelligence quotient. The tests are all timed, and the answers are multiple choice. A clearly explained tutorial section explains the logic behind each set of problems, and there are seven clas- silications ol questions to answer which test you on subjects such as spatial awareness, logic, and verbal comprehension.
MUSICAL EFFECTS It you're into games programming or would like to spice up your musical creations, Killer Sounds offer a selection of sample disks which are bound to make things easier.
Available under a number of headings such as Musical Effects, Music Vocals etc, each disk contains a variety of IFF samples which can be loaded into music packages such as Soundlracker or Octamed.
The samples vary greatly in quality; some are quite poor whilst others are excellent. The same could also be applied to the choice of subject matter; there are some really unique sounds on the Musical Effects disk which you can use to add an original theme to your tunes, whereas some of the vocals sound as if they're recordings of the disk-compiler's rather weird friends.
Either way, these are a useful addition to anyone's sample library, but if you do decide to try them out start with the Musical Effects disks.

PACIFIC PD **** P-SUITE VI.4 If you’ve ever needed a text display program, P-Suite could be the answer you're looking for.
It allows you to display text in a number of eye-catching ways to ensure that your documents are more attractive. Multi-coloured documents are a doddle, and with this great utility it's even possible to add graphics to illustrate your point.
Also included is a useful animation program called P-Animate which can be used to create hi-res animations complete with musical accompaniment. Images can also be animated against static backgrounds and moved around at will.

T. BAG 61 Most people have heard of the the Fred Fish PD library,
but tar fewer have encountered any of the fantastic T. bag
(Tampa Bay Amiga Group) disks, which is a shame because in
many ways they’re even better.
Disk 61 in the set contains an interesting assortment of utilities to suit most tastes. At one end of the scale there’s the complexity of Thexx, an Arexx program tor use with the Video Toaster, and at the opposite extreme there are tools such as Oos-manager, a great disk management utility to make lile easier tor beginners.
The disk also contains Boot Pic and Boot Gen, two programs which enable the user to create customised boot-blocks, complete with loading picture. BizCalc simplifies the job ol calculating variable mortgage repayments, whilst RPNsimplifies the job ot calculating anything because it’s a superb scientific calculator that supports numerous geometric and logarithmic functions.
The T.Bag disks are especially attractive and easy to use thanks to their superb menu system called Transactor.

Steve ‘Key Whizz’ Chance went to town on Mindscape’s
eagerly-awaited Miracle system.
Can this be the path to pop stardom?
Close encounters ot a musical kind. This lesson, in which you copy the notes played by the aliens, Is Just one ot the many bizzare arcade sequences that will get your linger tinkling those ivories---- KEY TO SUCCESS For those ot you who want to spare the expense not to say the potential embarrassment of of having formal piano lessons, Mindscape now otter salvation in the form of The Miracle Piano Teaching System: an advanced electronic keyboard which connects to your Amiga, complete with software that teaches you how to play it.
Contained in the massive box are the impressive-looking four-octave keyboard, a separate power supply, two manuals, three unprotected floppy disks, and some other bits and pieces. The keyboard will work either on its own, or as an ordinary stereo synthesizer, with 128 different voices (patches). On the back are MIDI In and Out ports, phono sockets tor connecting to your Hi-Fi, and the Miracle Port, via which you connect it to the serial port ot your Amiga using the lead supplied.
Although the keyboard has two built-in speakers, tor private playing there is a headphone socket, too. Also supplied, is a strange tab of black toam, on the end of a long thin wire, which connects to a fiddly little socket on the back ot the keyboard. This is in fact the sustain pedal, and despite its odd appearance it works surprisingly well - although how long it will last, I wouldn't like to say. As part of a package costing £300,1 must admit that I expected something a bit beefier. Gripes aside, though, the overall quality of construction is reasonable. The keys themselves have a
smooth teel, and are velocity sensitive - which means that, as in a real piano, the harder you hit them, the louder the noise.
WIRED FOR SOUND According to the box, the minimum system specification tor your Amiga is at least 1 Mb ot memory, with a hard disk or two floppy drives - the key word here being 'minimum'. It you don't have a hard disk, the teaching program demands regular access to all three of the floppies, which, even with two drives, requires infuriatingly trequent swapping. Closer inspection, however, reveals that the third disk contains only 420k ot data so owners of more memory are recommended to copy its contents over to the Workbench RAM disk, and rename it the RAM disk as Miracle3:'. II all goes
well, your disk-swapping troubles are over. Why the program isn’t clever enough to check tor sufficient memory and do this itself, I don't know.
Once the program has loaded, and the keyboard has calmed down, you are invited to log on as a new student. You can define yourself as either a child or an adult, and it is worth noting that the computer is considerably more tolerant of its assessment ot a child’s performance. Alter a quick lesson on how to use the mouse, etc, it's down to business with Chapter 1 of the piano course, which teaches you how to play the tune ot Ode To Joy' from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony (see panel).
ADDRESS BOOK Tilt Miracle Piano Teaching System tosls £299 ana details are available Irom Mindscape, The Coach House, Hooklands Estate, Scaynes Hill. W. Susses HH17 7NG. Tel: 0144 831 761 ot looking down at the keyboard itself.
After each lesson, your performance is evaluated by the computer, and this is where the program’s supposed 'Artificial Intelligence' comes into play, and a new exercise is prescribed to correct any problem that may have been detected.
This part of the system can be quite rigorous and, although it suffers the occasional attack ot ‘Artificial Stupidity', it usually diagnosed my problems correctly.
For help, click on any of the highlighted words and you will enter a friendly hypertext help system. This is a system of cross-referenced help and information screens that make a detailed manual unnecessary, which is just as well, because you don’t get one.
PINKY BUT PERKY Each time, the lesson takes you into a new 'room', there is an unfortunate hiatus of grinding disk drives while yet another title screen is loaded. The problem stems from the package's American origins, where everyone owns a hard drive and where the problem would be non-existent. Another problem with the transatlantic origin of the software is the musical terminology used throughout.
What a British Tutor would call minims, crotchets, quavers and your little finger, the program refers to as half-notes, quarter-notes, eighth notes and your pinkie. Admittedly, the American terms make much more sense (except for ‘pinkie’), but if you're thinking of taking a British piano exam, you could run into trouble.
The course covers basic keyboard skills and most of the musical notation you-are ever likely to run into, and the playing of each song is taught in detail.
No actual printed sheet music is included in the package, so you can't visit a friend who has a piano and show- - MIRACLE ...at a glance good quality electronic keyboard • Friendly yet comprehensive piano-teaching software* Software interacts effectively with the keyboard • Kcylxmrd is velocity sensitive * 128 different patches and MIDI compatibility • Needs a lot ol RAM or a hard disk • Costs much less than a piano and a piano teacher.

Gram I the aimed nvited ew in as ran worth com- nore a fsson own ano ?lay TUNING IN Each chapter is divided into several bitesized lessons, introducing new musical concepts as they become necessary. By the end of each chapter, you have learnt to play the complete song along with the accompaniment of The Miracle Orchestra. Actually, The Miracle Orchestra was something which I could have done without. Most ot the machine's accompaniments are rather fussy and twiddly arrangements which put me in mind of the worst excesses of Viz's Captain Morgan (And His Hammond Organ). However, on the plus
side, they do enable you to participate in creating a rich sound at a very early stage. Also, there is constant on-screen feedback as to which notes you are playing, which helps to prevent the habit ALTERNATIVES The obvious alternative to the Miracle system Is signing up Kith a human piaro teacher. If you are still at school, plana lessons are often available free of charge. However, with the squeeze being placed on so-called 'non-essantial' subjects, less and less money Is available for schools to pay lor the necessary teachers.
Privately, you can eipect to pay around £8 tor a half- hour lesson horn a qualified teacher. Then, ol course, you will also need a piano for practising. A reconditioned piano will cost at least £580, while the price ol a new piano runs into the thousands. Beware ol settling lor the cheapest piano you can lind, though, as il the sound and touch are poor, you won’t enjoy playing, and yon will give up before you've even started.
Oft the song you have just learnt to play.
Also, you can't scribble notes to yourself above the phrases you have particular difficulty with. You can, of course, buy separate blank music sheets, but the chances ot it being ot the same arrangement as the one used in the program is pretty thin. Most sheet music is written to be played on the seven-octave keyboard of a real piano, and so won’t fit naturally onto the 4 octaves of the Miracle.
Though the software otters frequent encouragement, and does its best to appear to know what you are doing, there are some areas where it cannot take the place of a flesh and blood piano teacher. It cannot comment on the phrasing and expression of your playing, nor can it slap your wrists with a ruler when you neglect to hold your hands properly. However, it does offer infinite patience, and a certain addictive ‘I’ll just see what's round the next bend’ quality, which helps to sustain the all-important desire to learn.
CONCLUSION The Miracle keyboard system does virtually everything it claims to do, and should enable most people to play simple piano pieces with confidence. Bear in mind that the software is slightly sluggish, but still it's well-presented and intuitive to use. If you are serious about learning to play the piano, the benetits offered by this system would certainly justify the purchase ot a hard drive.
If you want to learn.
An excellent place to start.

Try to break away from the full- face view from time to time.

Keep a stiff upper lip and don’t even bat an eyelid - Peter Lee is about to tackle one of the toughest tasks facing Amiga artists: faces.
Drawing laces has wiped the smirk off many an Amiga artist's lips but, with a little help, plenty I of practice and some neat shortcuts, you will be able to meet this tough challenge.
O Wrong footed ?
Before explaining how to get things right, a word about what most people do wrong: they try I to cram too much detail into their faces. As you may have gathered in my series of hands-on I articles, it’s no sin to be a bit lazy; suggest shapes and forms rather than get every pixel perfect. Good though the Amiga is. Graphic definition isn't all that sharp.
O The shame of it Don’t draw faces from memory. Some people can, most of us can't. There’s no shame in using a picture as your source - it gives you the time to study the subject, and you aren't likely to put the bits and pieces in the wrong place. Start off with magazine shots, then work i your way up to snaps of loved ones (if they stay loved ones afterwards, you know you must be doing something right!).
O Forms in sight Before you even caress the mouse and start sketching, stop and consider what form your drawing is going to take. The Amiga lets you mimic several kinds of traditional art mediums, and these affect how your finished work will look. In both low and medium resolution you can have up to sixteen greys to mimic a pencil or charcoal sketch - the kind people endure on holiday by kerbside artists. And believe it or not. Sixteen colours is also enough to give a good tonal range for water-colour or pastel-type work.
Oon the starting grid There is one genuinely useful trick for copying pictures and one cheat. The cheat is to use a digitised picture, trace round it and colour it in (as we did in our Rotoscoping tutorial). This is not going to improve your art skills, but it gets the job done. The most time-honoured artistic trick for copying, whether from life or pictures, is to use a grid. Divide your original up into a sequence of squares, duplicate this grid on your Amiga screen, then methodically copy the contents of each square.
HEADS YOU WIN Not content with what nature gave them, some cultures have actually practiced skull re-shaping lor a variely ol reasons
- cosmetic, practical or intellectual. The bones in the heads of
young babies are very soft, and they can be made to conform lo
various shapes II bound or pressed. The ruling families of
Andenl Egypt are known to have approved this bizarie treatment,
which found favour al one time or another in Sweden, France and
native American culture. Indeed, in Nazi Germany in Ihe 30s.
Some parents are said lo have re-shaped Iheir offspring's
heads by binding In order lo better conform to the Ayrian
ideal.
O Easy life You are still doing all the work, but concentrating your attention in smaller areas makes life much easier. Use a bright non-face colour for the grid, drawing over it as you progress, then erase the grid by using the stencil tool to protect all other colour before clearing the screen.
0 Dodge city You may have already thought of another dodge: using a pointing device fixed to the mouse to trace around images. I have tried this and can give it a wholehearted, unreserved raspberry. It seems like a good idea until you try it - your dog could do better. Tracing an outline is easy, but while your eyes are fixed on the paper under the mouse, the pointer has developed its own personality on screen and drawn something resembling an ordinance survey map of Dartmoor. Maybe you'll have better luck than me, so give it a whirl - all you need is a thin piece of card shaped to a point
and some sticky tape.
0 Stereotyped The bottom line is that getting a face right (ie so someone else recognises it) requires a lot of patience. Not just in the outline, but in choice of colours.
Poster-style images, used to make an impact (as in my Arnie screen), can be done with three or four colours; but in this form it's all too common for realism to give way to stereotype. That's why it's best to keep persevering for the realistic touch.
0 In the pink Manually drawn faces cannot hope to capture the million subtleties of human skin; even 4096 colour HAM screens barely scratch the surface, and who needs the added aggravation of HAM with a subject as tough as this? But at the other extreme, even with only eight skin-pinks, nuances can be created which add true depth to the complexities of the face.
0 Blunt advice To enhance the recognisability of your face, it is a good idea to create the initial outline in a dark colour. Although this tends to give a cartoon-like quality to the finished subject, it is the most immediate way to present shape and angle; true, lips don't have sharp edges, but being too realistic on a computer screen will either leave the mouth looking like a gash or a sausage. Once you have gained confidence using outline features, you can move on to letting flesh-coloured face shades do the work.
QBIurring the edges An intermediary stage is possible which, in spite of its simplicity, gives a near photo-realism to your work: blurred shadows. Working in sixteen colour mode, with a grey paper colour and black as your ink, draw the outline, then add shadows as solid blocks. You will find that the shadows resemble a painting-by-numbers outline as they define the nooks and crannies of the face. Once drawn, use the smooth tool to blur the edges to give added realism.
A frame from a comic strip, showing how a minimum of pen strokes can convey dramatic feelings.
0 Lip-smackin’ Apart from housing smell, taste, sight and hearing, the face's main function is in expressing feelings. Initially, you will find it easier to adopt the melodramatic over-emphasised grimaces and snarls which you find in action comics. But practice will give you the skills to show joy, surprise, sorrow and so on with less emphasis. A curled lip, raised eyebrow or narrowed squint are the kind of nuances to employ for subtle mood inferences.
0Bare essentials This holds good in both simple and complex cartoon’drawings, as well as art-from-life images. You can pare the drawing information down to the bare minimum to create a computer comic-strip story (as found in daily paper sthps) or add colour and realism (as in the Batman novelettes). In either case, once you have built up a series of drawings, you can archive them and call them up to make slight amendments as the story unfolds. After all, there are only a few pixels difference between a grin and a grimace.
Ohot spots Whichever way you draw your face, the one feature you cannot skimp on is the eyes. Often'described as the ‘window to the soul' they are the most expressive feature of any face, and reflect this in their complexity. But, unless your subject is Dusty Springfield, eyelashes are not vital, and can easily be suggested by a thickened dark line. It is important to suggest - either by shadow or line - the hidden shape of the eyeball under the lids, and the pupil itself should be a black circle in the coloured iris. For real accuracy it is vital to put a white hot-spot on the pupil iris
area, to show the direction of a light source reflected on the wet surface of the eye.
Oln reach In the same way, a hot-spot highlight is often needed on a small area of the lower lip, where light catches a sheen of dampness or lipstick. Faces are tough to draw, but hopefully not out of reach now you know some of the tactics for tackling them.
A glint in the eye, a spread of teeth and a jolly grin captures this subject perfectly. Note the beard - achieved with a spread of four browns using an airbrush tool in cycle mode.
Unmistakably Arnold. Even though he's drawn using contoured shadows in just four colours, the strong features show through.
Building up a face-bank means you can cut down on work by editing a few features to convey many moods.

At Rower, 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 save files as normal.
When you do not want these features, switch them off and the PC880B will sit quietly, without clicking, pretending to be simply an extra drive.
The PC880B, the only drive to introduce Blitz Amiga, the Power anti-click device and to combat viruses, is only available direct from Power, priced at just £69-95.
We have noticed how pricey unintelligent drives are. Perhaps, it's yourturn to tell people where to stick it.

I GOT RHYTHM Here at last is a construction kit that composes in styles from Mahler to Bob Marley using a potentially unlimited number of samples.
At its simplest, SuperJAMI, from Blue Ribbon Soundworks, is no more than a glorified rhythm player - similar to the ones you' find on most synthesisers. Tell it to play reggae-style, for example, and it will deliver a continuous and suitably ‘boomba-chicka’ Jamaican rhythm.
Each musical style consists of up to six elements: lead, bass, piano, strings, guitar and drums. These elements are known collectively as 'The Band', and different styles feature different band members. A tune played in a classical style might feature the strings, piano, and bass sections, whereas a hip-hop ..or- Song writing can be easy to play four samples at a time, or eight using Octamed - but SuperJAMI sets no such limits other than on the amount of memory needed to store them. In practice, this means that five or six decent quality samples can be played on a one megabyte machine, and at
least twenty if you have three megabytes or more. A faster processor chip such as the 68020 or '030 boosts this number further still.
CONSTRUCTION TIME There are many ways of using SuperJAMI to play music, but the quickest is from the Keyboard window. To the left of this are buttons from which one of fill causes SuperJAMI to improvise until Ihe end ol the current bar load in a new play style lour ol Ihe thirty-two olay styles The keyboard is where you'll test most ot your ideas before recording them in the Pattern and Song Editors.
The Chord Filter allows you to decide what chords SuperJAM! Can use In your operations.
124 lour pre-loaded play styles can be selected, whilst to the right is the chord palette complete with buttons that generate patterns of notes.
The most important part of the window is the two octave piano keyboard that occupies the centre section. It is here that the user plays most of the key changes that comprise a tune. Many of the piano keys are labelled with letters denoting the type of chord (minor, major, diminished etc) that will be played when they are struck.
You don’t have to know what the chord names mean, just press the play button and a rhythm will start up, then merely hit a key on the keyboard or the chord palette and see if you like the results!
When you feel like creating a song, a quick click on the Section button calls up a requester that defines the name and length of the section to be created.
Once these are set, the section window appears, divided into blocks which represent bars of music. These blocks are further divided vertically to represent the members of the band, and horizontally or eight M! Sets t amount

DICTIONARY DEFINITIONS Your very own guide to the jargon used... CHORD A chord is a group of three or more notes played simultaneously.
CHORDFILTER When SuperJAM! Is improvising a piece ot music, certain chords will sound better than others. The Chord Filter allows you to filter out the ones that would sound discordant and out ot character with the rest of the piece.
KEY KEY SIGNATURE Change the notes used in an octave and you’ll end up changing the mood of the piece. The key identifies which notes in an octave will be used.
MAJOR MINOR By altering a single note to a chord, or adding an extra one, it can be made to sound richer or even entirely different. The terms major and minor refer to particular ways in which basic chords can be modified to produce different musical effects.
Major chords give music an uplifting feel, whereas minor ones sound sadder.
MIDI Stands tor Musical Instrument Digital Interface and is the name given to an industry standard way of connecting instruments to controller devices, such as sequencers, computers and other MIDI instruments.
OCTAVE An octave is a distance of eight notes between two notes of the same name, for example from C to C. Each octave is numbered according to its pitch. For instance, the note C in octave one is a very low note, whilst C in octave six is high.
PLAYSTYLE To play music in an identifiable style, ie. Jazz, house, waltz, folk, etc. RHYTHM A regular beat. It can form the backbone ot a song or as can be used as an end unto Itself.
SCALE A scale is a group of eight notes that go up or down step-by-step, starting on any note.
The note you start on names the scale, so start on A for the scale of A and B for the scale ot B. Doh, ray, me, tah, so, la, te, doh, popularised by Julie Andrews in the movie, Sound of Music, is, in tact, the way beginners represent any major scale.
SHARPS AND FLATS A Sharp will raise the pitch of a note, whereas a fault will lower it. All notes have their sharpened and flattened equivalents.
Uum ii_«----- Wbifiii to represent subdivisions of a bar.
At each section marker a different type of event can be specified. These range from simple ones, such as key changes, to more interesting events, such as changes of style, intros, fills and endings.
The various band members can also be switched on and off at each section marker, or their instruments changed, allowing even greater variety. When several sections have been defined, they can be played in any order via the Song window to create a backing track lasting as long as you need it.
GO IT ALONE Once a backing rhythm has been created, you'll be ready to take advantage of SuperJAM!s Lead Player feature.

Keyboard if one is connected. The top two rows of the computer keyboard (the number keys and qwerty), are used for chord (key) changes, whilst the other half are assigned single notes. For example, press the letter Z in Lead mode to play the note C, but press the letter 0 to change the key of the current rhythm.
THE MIDI CONNECTION Owners of a MIDI compatible instrument can designate some or all of the band via these external voices, and, although the program caters fully for non-MIDI users, it's in this capacity that SuperJAM! Really excels.
By including MIDI support the manufacturers have ensured that song editing and chord changes are even easier, so that any experienced keyboard player could doubtless trot out a very impressive performance.
VARIATIONS ON A THEME Another tremendous aspect of SuperJAM! Lies in its great flexibility.

can can be changed in pitch, volume and duration, either
individually or collectively. In fact, the note-editing
section bears a passing resemblance to the Dr T's KCS note
editor.
For the professional, there are also options such as chord filters, which specify the chords played in any particular key or song. Because SuperJAM!
Actually improvises some parts of the music (when changing from one style to another for example), there are even options to specify how it will handle these ad-libs, and this can also be used to define how Intros etc will sound.
Using the SMPTE features you can synchronise SuperJAUtt ouput with a video signal.
CONCLUSION SuperJAM! Is great fun and you'll soon find yourself turning in some great compositions. Its flexibility means that it is powerful enough for professional use, yet user-friendly enough for the absolute beginner who doesn't know an octave trom an octopus. Because it uses colour to represent associations between different sections, the user can grasp the more complex concepts with tar greater speed than a monochrome display would permit. It's far easier to use than any Soundtracker or Music-X clones, yet is capable of far more than either of them.
JJ JJJJj Intro Fitli Bfk End1 SuperJAM!s most impressive feature is the way that it can play a whole host of inslrumenfs, requiring nothing more than a decent amount of memory to bring entire orchestras to play for your home computer.
Without a doubt this is one of the most exciting, innovative and user- friendly music products ever to reach the Amiga, and it's bound to bring .

Al :R Y DISKS BELS ¦P CANON FODDER?
In June Iasi year I reviewed the Canon BJ- lOe. A portable printer with big ideas. Until now, nothing has come close in terms of quality or value-for-money, but Star are no longer content to sit on the sidelines while Canon dominate the bubble-Jet market.
In virtually all ways, the SJ-48 is identical to the BJ-lOe, trom the shape and size of its case, to its print speed of 83"characters per second in all modes. This is hardly surprising because the machine uses exactly the same print engine as Canon’s earlier offering.
However, despite the fact that the number of modifications made by Star is small, they are important and affect the output of the printer.
Fancy a low-cost bubble jet that offers near laser quality?
Star’s new SJ-48 does exactly that, which positively makes Mat 'bubble bubble’ Broomfield froth at the mouth with delight... STAR SJ48 ... a I a glance
• Near laser quality printing • Quite cheap • Very quiet • Fairly
slow • Extremely durable • Portable (At Sized) 5” f; foa w*
The typefaces that come with the SJ-48 are considerably more
versatile than the BJ- 10e's. Not least in their range of point
sizes.
CANON BJ-10E STARS 40 Price £405.75 £345 fme at on IBM Proprinter X24E IBM Proprinter X24E Canon BJ-130e Epson LQ-860 Speed cl 10 CPI 83 CPS 83 CPS Resolelion 360 DPI 360 DPI fin 16 bit mode) Resident Fonts Courier,Prestige Elite Roman. H-Gothic Download Fonts YES YES Memory flee feet butler) 37K 28K Paper Handling Good Excellent How does it perform? The SJ-48 is very quiet and reliable, although it sounds marginally louder than the 45 decibel tolerance of the BJ-10e. It uses a 48-nozzle ink jet printing system compared to Canon’s 64-nozzle bubble jet method. However, as current printer
drivers for the Canon only use 48 nozzles at a time, the resolution of the two printers is roughly equal when printing text.
Although the SJ-48 is capable of 360 dots per inch (DPI) resolution none of the printer drivers I tested (19 in total) could reproduce graphic dumps at that level, resulting in poorer image quality than the BJ-10e.
RESOLUTION Ironically, whilst the print resolution is actually 60 DPI higher than many laser printers, the image quality is just a tad less clear due to the additional precision offered by laser technology.
It’s feasible to use the SJ-48 for high quality desk-top publishing work. The SJ-48 uses its own ink cartridge which lasts for approximately 700,000 characters or 132 pages. I tried using a standard BJ-lOe cartridge and they seemed to work perfectly and will cost you about £17 pounds each to buy.
And both the SJ-48 and BJ-10e have a major advantage over other printers, for each time you replace the ink cartridge, the attached print head is also replaced, reducing maintenace costs to virtually nothing.
The SJ-48 is supplied with two typefaces, Roman and H-Gothic, each of which can be accessed in four sizes ranging from 17 to 10 characters per inch (CPI). These are sharper looking and more flexible to use than the Canon’s typefaces, but to my mind the BJ- 10e takes the prize in terms of attractiveness.
GOOD LOOKER Star’s new printer is smart looking in a pleasant matt grey colour. It also handles paper slightly better than its rival: for instance, it automatically turns the printer back on-line and ready to go after a new sheet of paper has been inserted.
CONCLUSION The SJ-48 is very similar to the already successful BJ-lOe and, minor points aside, is a good rival offering superb quality printing.
In the final analysis each printer has some unique advantages, and despite the fact that I’m a very loyal and satisfied BJ-10e user, I’d still recommend the SJ-48. Buy whichever you can get cheapest!
VERDICT Portable printer which represents superb VFM.

* I UJBMWUf ,m a mm Finally it’s here. A high-quality fractal
landscape generator that doesn’t require fifty gigabytes of
memory. Mat ‘Sherpa’ Broomfield heads for the peak of the
mountain... MEMORY SAVER In our July issue we reviewed an
excellent landscape generator called Vista Pro, which
unfortunately required three megabytes of memory lo run. Now
Micro Illusions have produced a program which works to the
same high standard, but which only requires one meg to operate.
Genesis creates landscapes in one of two ways: it can generate a ficticious terrain based on variables that the user specifies, or it can process Digital Elevation Maps (DEMs) which contain contour data about real locations.
Several DEMs are provided, and dozens ot others are available by mail order.
MULTI-FACETED LANDSCAPES Pictures are generated using triangles to represent each facet ot a landscape and, before rendering, a huge number of variables may be added to specify the nature of various terrain features. The most important variable controls the recursion level which, in turn, dictates the degree of detail that will be added to the finished picture.
There are five recursion levels, and each one uses more and successively smaller triangles when drawing a landscape. For instance, level one uses only twenty-tour triangles to create a very basic image but level tour can generate GENESIS
• Fast fractal landscape generator • Only requires one meg* Very
user friendly • Perhaps a little bit pricey • Quirky display
modes landscapes which replicate the degree ot detail that
would be visible to the human eye.
Although they're more dramatic to | look at, landscapes don't always have to consist of vast craggy mountain ranges, because the height ot the terrain and the likelihood of such features as cliffs are easily adjustable through one of several sub-menus. In the same menus, features such as SOI I We sto.
J end cur | titles w 31 Recon lakes, waterfalls, river widths and depths and sea level can all be individually adjusted.
It's also possible to adjust the user's viewpoint with great precision. The user can specify their distance from and height above a landscape, their angle to it and the direction in which they're facing. Using this feature, it's possible to create convincing animations in which the viewer is transported on'a journey of his or her own design.
To this end, an additional program called DEM2Gen is provided which will automatically script, generate, render and store animated sequences. The one prohibitive factor when creating large animations (other than the memory to run them) is the huge amount ot time it takes to render each frame.
Each recursion level increases the rendering time factorially, so an image that only takes live seconds to render at level one takes nearly thirteen at level two and over half-an-hour at level five.
Nevertheless, Genesis does seem lightning fast when compared to Vista Pro.
ADDRESS BOOK Genesis costs £49.95 and is available Irani The Software Business, Brooklands, New Road, St Ires, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, PE17 4BG. Tel: 0480 496497.
Ssi!
CuilK * Co4o*«Ui CortKCl .
CSo.fi' CONCLUSION Genesis is so user-triendly that the comprehensive instruction manuals are barely needed. It allows specific control over all ot the important terrain elements that comprise a real’ landscape, and its re-colouring options even allow seasonal variations. But even though Genesis is fun to use, I still teel that Vista Pro is more powerful.
: User-friendly fractal generator that's fun.

his reading specs and browses through a brand new book for
brand new Amiga owners... WRITE STUFF Computers are far too
interesting and too useful to be left in the hands of a bunch
of self-important geeks!’ writes Phil South in the opening
chapter ot Mastering Amiga Beginners.
With this sort ot attitude it comes as no surprise that this book is both a highly readable and entertaining introduction to the Amiga. It doesn’t set out to be a comprehensive guide to the machine, rather it points the beginner in the right direction for further progress.
SIMPLICITY The first tew chapters re-write the Amiga handbook provided by Commodore and. As such, they do a fine job. South then describes interesting and complex subjects - fonts, icons, speech synthesis, _ sound and graphics
- in a simple and straightforward fashion.
With more complicated subjects such as comms, hardware and sound sampling, the book gives useful hints and tips, rather than detailed instruction, and this approach works very well. Far too often, authors of so-called beginners books succumb to the urge to preach to and teach the 'ignorant'.
Happily this does neither.
CONCLUSION An excellent introduction to the Amiga, and even at £20 it's an extremely worthwhile investment for any beginner.

LOADS OF TITLES TO CHOOSE FROMI CATALOGUE ON DISK 60p mickey mouse it ain't Rombo’s latest video release adds sound and fury to your animations.
Peter Lee spends some time in the cells learning the lessons of Take-2 GENIUS Animation isn't all fun and games. In the old Disney days people used to marvel at full- length animated features and acclaim old Walt as a genius. Of course, Walt didn't do much animation himself. He merely oversaw the thousands of hand-drawn frames and rejected those he didn't like.
These days, if a sequence isn't right it isn’t simply a matler of spending more time doing it again - it costs money. Transferring frames onto high quality video for line-testing means spending time on some dedicated equipment - equipment which studios hire out by the minute.
You may not be in the business of producing feature-length animations in your bedroom but even the simplest of demos would benefit from some of the techniques involved in a more professional production. I mean it's all very well having the most visually powerful home computer humming on your desk, but you'll need help from some cunning software to make the most of your efforts.
GEARED UP Take-2 is a software-only package offering video and animation sequencing with four- track graphic conlrol and synchronised sound capabilities.The software is obviously geared up to work with sequences grabbed with Vidi Amiga - in fact it has its own digitising command screen to control the Rombo hardware. That isn't to say that if you don't own Vidi you will won’t get any use out of Take-2 since it lets you edit other kinds of animation, like ones created in DeluxePaini III or IV.
By edit I mean that Take-2 gives you control over testing and polishing your presentations. It has evolved from the author's original concept of a line-tester for checking digitised sequences pf hand-drawn images to become a self-contained video sequencer.
Two of the three disks in the package contain demo images and sounds, which the manual’s tutorials use to guide you through what is an initially tricky program, It has to TAKE-2 to load the individually saved frames into a more worthy animation program, with Dpainl being my choice.
And there are more niggles... You can save your completed work as a scene - all the image, sound and playback information is retained. But you can't play it back unless you load Take-2 first. There is no stand-alone player provided, so you cannot pass on your masterpieces to friends unless they have the program. This may be OK for home-alone types who don't need others to see their work, but as the package claims to be capable of ‘product presentation’, I would have expected this facility as standard.
CONCLUSION The release under test (v1.0) has its shortcomings, which Rombo are clearly aware of as they mention a couple in the manual.
Viewed as a simple line tester to be used in conjunction with Vidi Amiga, it is a worthwhile and fun addition to the range. It doesn’t cost the earth, gives you synchronised sound and lets those who like drawing images on paper, then digitising their images, remain with the grass-roots of cell animation.
Tie way to mimicking this useful feature with a Dub function. This is really a double-exposure’ style facility for blending two images together - it's rough and ready, often giving soup-like results.
Another glaring omission in version 1.0 is that you can't save an animation as an ANIM file. This is the standard format used by just about every other animation package and by all (as far as I know) other applications likely to use animations. II you want to make an ANIM out of your completed work, you need Get animated with this superb animation program EASE OF USE 70% VALUE FOR MONEY 90% EFFECTIVENESS 85% FLEXIBILITY 75% INNOVATION 80% OVERALL 75% | THE COMPETITION Delate faint III has excellent animation playback facilities, but only with the arrival ol version IV has an editing suite been
added. This is a full-leature application which provides a Light Boi technique lor viewing multiple trames on one screen (a kind ol onion-skinning). It is easier to use than Take-2, but lacks sound capabilities. 60% Delete Video III is a more comprehensive animation tool than Take-2, and also incorporates sound playback. It's really a professional presentation tool rather than a test-bed, so consequently the actual animation editing facilities are less powerful, but you do get a stand-alone player lor distributing your output to friends or clients, and it boasts sophisticated screen
transitions. 70% At the really professional end of the market there's a program called f:A:S:C- the professional animation sequence editor. It’s tough to use, you may tind It hard to get hold ol (it was produced by Pure Graphics in late ’89) but It Is still the most powerful animation editor I have used. 75% Disney Animation Studio eipects you to draw your images trom within the program itself before animating. True, Disney does have onion-skinning, hut it's very convoluted. 65% THE BIG PICTURE The main working screen looks more like a spreadsheet. It's arranged in a rather unimpressive
grid of columns and cells, but this unpromising starting point is the nerve centre ot a really tun program. Plain boring it might look, but the screen is arranged for functionality.
The sound"examples supplied are really good - from hiccups and kisses to horses and rips. You can also use other sounds if they conform to the 8SVX or RAW formats.

Each numbered and quickly scrolled through. This miniature view is overlayed at the bottom of the exposure sheet and is a handy browser.
IS THAT THE TIME?
To see the real-time animation full-screen you select the Flipper option. A pop-up control panel makes life simple by offering frame-by-frame control of a sequence.
Although this doesn’t include any editing facilities - these are accessed from the exposure sheet - it does give you the chance to taste your work and examine single cells or groups. This is handy if you want to time a scream sound to kick in on frame 18 when you see the exact moment the bullet hits home.
The program’s editing facilities need a little more intuition than I found I had (maybe I'm just stupid). Icons on requestors control just about everything but they seem to be all based on a standard style and are often a- great shortcut to getting in a mess!
GIVE ME SKIN The version of Take-2 under test does not support onion-skinning (that's the ability to see a ghosted image of previous and next frames under the current onS), but goes a lit- mickey mouse I aM be said that the manual is a vital read - none of this 'boot the program, push a button and see what happens’. The icons are fully itemised, but learning their functions add an extra hurdle to the process.

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... Datel Electronics 0782 744707 E59.95 E69.95 (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 it 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 Soundlracker modules and samples, even put cheat modes in games and, to top it all, you never need to load this wonder widget.
You just plug Action Replay into the side of your machine and forget about it.
This is one piece of kit for the Amiga that’s almost an ¦ essential purchase. Warning!
Action Replay II only works with machines with less than four megabytes of memory.
* **** AMIGA GENITIZER Date Electronics 0782 744707 E129.99
Using art packages like Deluxe Paint IV or Photon Paint can be
a bit tricky for some people using the mouse. Now these unhappy
Amiga artists can stop pulling their hair out because the
Genitizer is a graphics tablet that's as simple to operate as
drawing with a pen. Images can easily be copied from paper by
tracing around the image. Comes complete with a Deluxe Paint
template for easy use.
? *?* AMOS Europress Software 0625 859444 E49.99 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 as 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 E34.99 Almost every
Amiga owner has seen solid-3D vector images at some time,
either in a Red Sector demo or games like Thunderhawk (Core
Design) and Jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker (Virgin Games). The
programmers of these games had to perform thousands of maths
calculations to produce these complex graphics, and, for the
average person, balancing the weekly budget is about the
limit. AMOS 3D is here to help. With the maths already done for
you, all you are required to do is put the lines in the correct
places and devise a game around them.
This is easy because the software is completely icon driven and supplied with a comprehensive manual.
AMOS 3D was written by Voodoo Software, the folks behind a 3D game for Electronic Zoo called Xiphos.
* ** AMOS COMPILER Europress Software 0625 859444 E29.99 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 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.
* *** AUDITION 4 HB Marketing Sunrise 0753 686000 E49.95 Sampling

* **** CD-ROM DRIVE Commodore 0628 770088 ETBA New kid on the
block, CDTV, has been available for some months now. As more
and more software emerges, owners of the standard Amiga can
only sit back and watch. Commodore is planning to shortly
release an external CD-ROM drive allowing anybody with a one
megabyte machine to play CDTV software. No price fixed as yet,
but expect to pay around E350.
* ** COLOURPIC JCL Business Systems 0892 75791 £399 For a

The military conflict in Kuwait has given virus writers inspiration to create a new style of virus called Saddam Hussein. The 'Saddam' normally hides inside Dislc-Validator and infects all files whilst corrupting the disks structure.

drive (35 times faster than a floppy) that's been specifi
cally designed for the Amiga.
It fits nicely into the expansion port at the side of the machine. However a metal shield has to be inserted before hand to prevent interference from the drive and bad installation will kill your Amiga.

JOYSTICK TESTER Konix £14.95 Has your joystick made that last great move? Is the fire button feeling a bit flat? Konix has produced what must be the most remarkable product featured in these pages.
Although the Joystick Tester is aimed primarily for computer shops, it works Deskbench has been around in one form or another for months, but this souped up version has a host of extra facilities.

* ** LEED (LEVEL EDITOR) Shareware A very useful program for game
coders or anyone interested in doing it themselves.
This PD program lets you load IFF screens that are split into panels which can then be used as building blocks for creating levels many times larger than the original screen.
* * LIGHT PEN Trojan (0554)777993 There can't be many people who
enjoy using a mouse, especially artists, so the natural thing
to do was to produce a pen-like version of the rolling
headache. Trojan's latest addition goes one stage further and
actually draws directly onto the screen. Although not compat
ible with the A500P the gadget does come with a drawing package
for all you lucky A500 owners and is much easier to use than
the Amiga mouse.
* ** MASTER SOUND Microdeal 0726 68020 £39.95 If, after looking
through all the Public Domain lists of Soundtracker music and
dissecting hundreds of tunes you still cannot find that per
fect sound, the only thing to do is sample them yourself!
Using Master Sound there are no limits to the achievable sounds. That racing game you're designing could sure benefit from some meaty effects, so why not stand nexfto a Porsche 959 and get the perfect engine sound? Only the foolhardy will attempt to capture real thunder, though. Simply record these sounds onto tape, play them into your Amiga via Master Sound.
Then load Noise Tracker ot Quartet and place the new sound into your piece of music or game. Hey presto, your software is enlivened with realistic audio just like the professionals.

in creating music it's worth buying cheap, you never know,
after a couple of days you might hate it!
* ** NOISE TRACKER Any PD Library Around £2 Your Amiga is well
suited to playing sampled noises, the problem is to combine and
string the samples together to make music. With the aid of
Noise Tracker you can load up to 32 samples into memory and
simply play them using keys on the Amiga. You can even put a
few bars together by clicking on an icon and the machine will
remember which notes you have played. When you’ve finished,
simply play them back with just a click of the mouse button. If
it sounds a bit rough at first you can always do fine
alterations.
After completing a few bars you can rearrange them if necessary and listen to your final composition.
* * PAINTJET Hewiet Packard £999 A high cost colour printer that
puts out at 180 dots per inch.
Despite its high resolution it can't cope with solid blocks of colour and strangely enough appears grainy.lts quiet printing does not compensate tor the over-all poor quality ot pictures it produces so spend your money elsewhere.
THE ART OF NOISE Anybody can produce a chart-topping sampled dance track these days, and Amiga users have a head start! All you'll need is a sampler cartridge (tor around £50) and a fantastically free PD program called Noise Tracker. If you've got a MIDI-compatible music keyboard, you could control the beast from the comfort of your computer via some special software like Music X (two versions available for £50 and £100).
* PC880B POWER DRIVE Power Computing 0234 843388 £65 Now that
almost every title available on the Amiga requires an average
ot three disks, it’s about time you upgraded your system by
adding two or more drives.

S. W.A.G.-4. Strictly PD The fastest fractal generation you've
ever seen, the disk contains three programs. The problem with
most fractal artwork is the lack of speed, but Mandel Blitz
(first on the disk) uses new algorithms to speed up the
process and rather than crawling down the screen one raster
line at a time it draws them all over the place and fills in
the fine detail later. If this sort of thing gets you off
you’ll love this and you won't find better.
VIDEOSCAPE 3D Centresott 021 356 3388 Animation gobbles up memory but if you don't mind not having colour-perfect 3D representations of objects and want to conserve as much memory as possible this modelling tool could be for you. Using pseudo-shaded algorithms to generate light and shade almost the same effects can be achieved as with twice the amount of free memory.

realistic-looking landscape inside your machine has never been
easier. Vista Pro is probably the best and most friendly to use
fractal generator running on an Amiga. As soon as you load it

manual is very easy to follow and well presented but the
program is fully icon-controlled and simple to use. Rendering

Dodgy A320 AIRBUS buyers guide Welcome to the pleasure dome!
Sit back, relax and read through the definitive guide to the greatest and latest games available today... Thallon £25.99 Simulation An extremely detailed commercial flight sim in every sense. The graphics don't stretch our machine to the fullest, but they are as realistic as you could want. Many will find the whole thing tiresome but anyone who fancies themselves as a real pilot can’t do better than this.
Indeed, Thalion claim that anyone who can master the program is ready to take control of the authentic Airbus so die-hard flight sim tans will love it.
* *** ARMOUR- GEDDON Psygnosis £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 toray into the genre. Scores over the cult classic Carrier Command from Realtime Games Rainbird.
* *** BARBARIAN II Psygnosis £25.99 Arcade Adventure Hegor the
Horrible is back in a hacker slasher which, unfortunately,
doesn't live up to the Shadow ol Ihe Beast style of
presentation.
* * BATTLE COMMAND Ocean £24.99 Arcade Simulation Blend ot 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 ot 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 your 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 ot this game. Sparkling sprite
animation of the two main characters come complete with a
crazy backdrop full of traps and bonuses.
* *** CADAVER tmageworks £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. It only
they'd added a bit more action, too.
?** CAPTIVE Mindscape £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 ol
the Crown turns his attention to the Roman Empire.
Command legionnaires on the battlefield, construct a fleet of boats, catch a gladiator show, and try to seduce Cleopatra. Carry on, gamers!
* ** CHAMPION OF THE RAJ Mirrorsofl £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 tails 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 Delphine US Gold £25.99 Adventure Gripping
stuff from the Parisian software company.
Agatha Christie style murder mystery using the Cinematique system. Full of French flair, especially the black and white 'flashback' sequences.
* *** DOUBLE DRAGON 3 Storm £24.99 Beal 'em up Eagerly-awaited
installment 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 tew 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 ot this
follow-up to Millennium 2.2... ** DUNGEON MASTER FTUMirrorsott
£29.99 Role Playing Game One of the most popular computer games
of all time.
It’s your party of adventurers and you'll tight 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 ol the Beholder (SSI US Gold) and Captive (Mindscape). Chaos Strikes Back (FTL Mirrorsoft) also uses the Dungeon Master game engine.
Requires one megabyte of memory.
* ?** EPIC Ocean £25.99 Space Flight Sim Wing Commander on the
Amiga. After years of delay DID have delivered a masterpiece
ot 3D space combat warfare. Protect the Federation tleet on its
perilous journey through space and engage enemy fighters or
embark upon eight separate 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-15 STRIKE EAGLE II Microprose £34.99 Simulation Another
in the long-line of quality flight-sims from Microprose. Fly
hundreds of missions in six war zones around the world,
including the Persian Gulf, Vietnam and Central Europe.
Probably the best ever Amiga flight-sim... until the next one takes off!
* **** F-29 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 tmageworks £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 ol 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.
* **** ghost!
Klxx £7.99 Arcade A six-level arcade quest recounting the daring deeds of Sir Arthur, professional knight and babe rescuer. A far better game than its predecessor Ghosts W Goblins it's now out on budget release and still holds up today in gameplay and medieval fun. Also, six-of- ¦N' the-best in game tunes you've heard. An absolute must.
* **** GODS Renegade Mindscape £24.95 Platform Another corker of
a game from the prolific Bitmap Brothers. Highly impressive
graphics complemented by a wide range of multi-layered sound
effects and samples.
Utilises a novel system which makes the computer-con- trolled opponents respond intelligently to the actions of the player.
* *** GRAND PRIX Microprose £34.99 Drive 'em-up More hot racing
action from author of the award-winning Stunt Car Racer.
Realistic, fast-moving and excellent 3D graphics. With up to
sixteen tracks to choose from, you shouldn't dire of taking
these Formula One buggies out for a spin.
* **** 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 the old Spectrum game has been well worth the wait.
Primitive graphics and sound but phenomenal gameplay.
Hopefully, this could pave the way for adaptions of some of other eight-bit classics like Aliens, Delta, Forbidden Forest, Lode Runner, Lords of Midnight, Park Patrol, Pastfinder, Raid on Bungling Bay, Thrust, and so on.
* **** HEART OF CHINA Sierra £35.99 Adventure Graphic adventures
don't get much prettier than this. You take the role of an
obnoxious loud-mouth American (do they come in any other for
mat?) On a journey across China to rescue your fair lady.
Extremely funny dialogue and a great deal of oriental flavour
remain in the Amiga version converted from the gob-smacking PC
product. A monitor might fail to do the tunes justice, but.
Rest assured, they are excellent. The only thing that ruins the experience is the limitations in the Amiga's speed and the horrendous disk swapping. Still great stuff.
* *??
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 adventures... brilliant!
* **** KING'S QUEST V Sierra On-Line £40.85 Adventure Yet another
example of the classy fantasy graphic adventures coming over
from our American cousins.
Attractive to both novice and master. What about that price, though?
* *** KNIGHTMARE Mindscape £25.99 RPG Role playing with a sense
of humour. Don't associate it too much with the childish
television program as it would be much too hard for the
youngsters. Intelligent monsters that can actually be heard
coming with tell tale noises best exploited through head
phones. The characters are very quick to react to their
predicaments and can all be individually programmed to spring
into action at a single click of the mouse button. A joy to
play and equally addictive.
* **** 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 SKY 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 Britain or Germany in a bi or tri plane set in WW1.
Probably the fastest sim to date even when there's loads in the sky the ground detail and pace are still retained.
* *** 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 Mindscape • £30.99
- Simulation Unique game where you can become a surgeon in charge
of some unlucky patients with gut ache! If only the opera
tions could stretch beyond the stomach... ** LORD OF THE RINGS
Interplay Electronic Arts buyers guide £25.99 Role Playing Game
Fabulous interpretation ot Tolkien’s masterwork with point 'n'
click icon interface and a series ot graphic and text screens
to push the fantasy story forward.
* ** LOTUS ESPRIT TURBO CHALLENGE Gremlin £24.99 Drive'em-up
Surprise hit of the year!
Similar look and feel to the C64 classic Pilslop II from Epyx. Features 20 competing cars. 32 cruel courses, precious pitstops and capital controls. Split-screen racing action for one or two players.
* *** LOTUS TURBO CHALLENGE II Gremlin £25.99 Drive 'em-up
Eagerly-awaited sequel brings eight new stages and improved
graphics. Like Sega’s Radmobile coin-op, Lotus 2 also includes
fancy weather effects like rain, snow and, most impressive of
all, fog. In addition, four players can simultaneously compete
courtesy of an ingenious link-up option. Some players have
complained about the feel of this one, so try both games before
you decide.
* *** MAGIC POCKETS Renegade Mlndscape £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.
* * MANCHESTER UNITED EUROPE Krisalis £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.
* **** MICROPROSE GOLF 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
tournaments, 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.
* **** OPERATION THUNDERBOLT Hit Squad £7.99 Shoot 'em up The
original conversion of Operation Wolf was met by fans with
mixed critiscim as some thought it a tad too difficult for
them. However, this sequel set had all the essentials to make
it better than the first including simultaneous two-player
mayhem.
Unfortunately, the absence of an on-screen cross hair with which to aim was a disappointment, but a brilliant conversion nevertheless.
* **** 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
Golt has three authentic courses (Sawgrass, Avenel and PGA
West) and a bonus fantasy course. Play against one to four
human or computer opponents and see your best shots again via
the Instant Replay. There are plenty of golf games available on
the Amiga, but none of them come close to this classic.
* **** POPULOUS 2 Bulllrog EA £29.99 Strategy One of the best
games ever released. No kidding.
Basically the same play principle as Populous, only everything has been improved to perfection. Try to become more powerful than Zeus by defeating a series of Greek Gods and mythological creatures. State-of-the-art gameplay and presentation.
You simply cannot be without this game in your collection.
There are two versions, owners of one megabyte machines are treated to even better graphics and sound.
* **** POWERMONGER Electronic Arts £29.99 Strategy From Bullfrog,
the team that brought us Populous, this is another startling
example of how original games can be created by designers who
care. Life as a warlord is tough but immense fun. Spy on your
enemies, bribe the meek and send in your troops to attack. Get
the peasants to make food or invent something useful like
agricultural machinery or destructive weapons. More of a
'real-world' simulation than Populous, with an incredible 3D
representation of rivers, hills, settlements, people and
battles which can be zoomed and rotated at will.
* **** PRINCE OF PERSIA Broderbund Domark £24.99 Platform Arabian
swordplay and hijinks with delicious sprite animation. Looks
good, sounds good and jolly well does you good. Hey Broderbund,
what about a sequel?
* **** PRO TENNIS TOUR 2 06 soft £24.99 Sport Who needs Wimbledon
when you can have the ‘real-thing’ all year round?
* *** RAILROAD TYCOON 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.
* *** REALMS Virgin Games £29.99 Strategy Strategy warfare sim in
the same mould as Powermonger and Mbga-lo- Mania but doesn't
live up to either of them. Not that there aren't gripping
moments in the Virgin offering, especialy when both players
fight to the death, but with the launch of Populous 2 it's
managed to miss the boat. However, those who felt a bit over
awed at the complexities of Powermonger should give it a go as
it's a nice friendly introduction to the genre.
* ** 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. Far too expensive for most players.
?** ROBIN HOOD Mlllennlum US Gold £25.99 Strategy Adventure Kevin Costner and Bryan Adams have made huge amounts of cash out of 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 An original format
that breaks the usual mold of film licenses. 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 angels and the 3D animated sections keep the story moving along in a stylish cinematic manner.
However, gameplay is rather limited and the long lasting appeal of it all is extremely 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 Lucastllm 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 ot 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.
* **** SHADOW OF THE BEAST 2 Psygnosls £34.95 Platform
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.
* ** SPACE GUN Ocean £24.99 Arcade Shoot 'em up Operation
Thunderbolt-styled game that's been converted from the
space-aged coin-op.
The incredible arcade atmosphere has been retained mainly due to the thumping noises and great sound effects. The original utilised a pump action space rifle and Ocean have not only made the game mouse driven, but Trojan Light Pen compatible as well. Every conceivable alien comes out of the wood work at you and the few additions that have been made to the tried and tested game- style raises the game above even Beast Busters.
* *** SPINDIZZY WORLDS Actlylslon £24.99 Arcade Puzzle Marble
Madness was one of the first games to be released on the Amiga,
although we had to wait four years for the real thing.
Fascinating game design.
* *** STAR CONTROL Accolade £24.95 Shoot’em-up This one had the
crew at EMAP Towers hogging the Amiga when it first came out.
Sort of like Asteroids for the 90's with some spiffy sound samples from TV shows of bygone years. Requires one megabyte of memory.
* * STUNT CAR RACER Microprose £24.99 Drive 'em- up Inventive and
irresistible crash 'n smash race game with realistic suspension
and handling of the hot-rod cars.
Geoff Crammond, the brains behind Revs and Sentinel, produced some fast solid-3D graphics for the narrow suspended raceways. Grand Prix is his new attempt to simulate Formula One warfare.
* **** SWITCHBLADE II Gremlin 124.99 Platform Finally, a platform
slice'em- up which gives those pesky Japanese console video
games a run for their money.
Switchblade II is set across six enormous levels with over 600 screens of tense, claustrophobic challenges.
Hack-tastic, mate!
* *** SWIV Storm £24.99 Shoot‘em-up Kind of like a sequel to the
durable Silkworm. Vertically- scrolling shoot 'em up which pits
your craft against all manner of alien fighters.
Continuous loading during the game means there's always something to shoot at. Why can't all Amiga games be this smart?
* **** 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 mis
sion editor and replay camera with VCR controls.
Supplied with exemplary manual.
* **** THUNDERHAWK Core Design £30.99 Arcade Simulation Near
future chopper capers geared towards total action.
A mix of slick 3D polygonal graphics and simple easy-to- use controls. There's no better helicopter sim on the Amiga at present. Another best-seller for Core Design.
Yah-hoo!
* **** TIP OFF Anco £25.95 Sport 3 Kick Off goes American with
the most accurate basketball game for your Amiga available.
Slightly dodgy controls made this a slight disappointment,
but a great deal of fun can be had and hopefully set the
standard for a tweaked sequel.
* **** TOKI Ocean £24.95 Platform Qualified conversion of the
strange coin-op starring a monkey in the leading role.
Marvellous bright backdrops and surreal sprites. Sadly, the basic gameplay isn't that varied.
?** ULTIMA VI Orlgln Mlndscape £30.99 Role Playing Game Every Ultima is a masterpiece in its own right. Nuff said, mate? Savage Empire and Martian Dreams use the Ultima VI game engine and are now on their way.
* **** UTOPIA Gremlin £29.99 Strategy Despite a similar look to
Populous, this is really SimCity in space. Can you construct
the perfect place to live? Every game presents a new challenge
and there's loads to keep you going. This is probably the best
game ever to emerge from Gremlin.
* **** 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 ihe trade marked 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 stupidly silly live
commentary.

Mat Broomfield comes to the end of his tinkering with MED.
SLIDE EFFECTS Two months ago I showed you how to enter notes into MED so that you could hear the stereo effects possible with the Amiga. Although the block of music we entered was complete, it can be enhanced still further by adding a slide so that the transition from one to the other is smooth.
This tiny effect is ver y easy to add, yet makes all the difference.
(OHi.
) Estate a iF.T Move the outline cursor to line 004 of track 4. Select Range from the control menu. There are two slide options but we only need the second one, so select S2.
This performs a slow slide starting from the cursor position to the next note in the same track. You'll notice that some numbers have appeared in lines 004 to 007 of track 4. Number 2 is the slide command, whilst the number 1 is the number of semitones to slide by at each line. If you prefer, you can add slide effects manually.
The second block is now complete.
Now you can add this block to the block play list. Click once on the inner down arrow so that the play list cursor is over a bla nk position. If you look at the block play list, you'll see the letters INS followed by a down-facing arrow. Click once on this. You will see that it inserts the number of the current block into trie play list.
Repeat this process so that block 01 is played twice.
Now, we must add the final block of this section to the song. Select a new block and type in the following notes, ensuring that you use the correct instruments.
Remember: a number in brackets like this [31] means leave that number of lines blank. A hyphen means leave one line blank.
Key in the following to play the intro of the song: Track 1 - instrument 1 - Octave 1 &2;W-W-W-W-W-W-W-W-W
- W-W-W-W-W-W-W - track2- instrument 2 - Octave 1 & 2: R [31]
track 3 I
- instrument 2 - Octave 1 & 2: T [31] track 4 - instrument 2 -
Octave 1 & 2:0 [31] Notice that the notes do not completely
fill the block. This time, rather than reduce the number of
lines in the block, we're going to use a different technique to
get around the problem.
Move the outline cursor to line 31 and position it over the second zero (0) of track
1. Type B and then move the cursor back to line 31, positioning
it over the last zero of the same track and type 7. Track 1 at
line 31 should look like this: 0B07.
The letter B is a special command when placed in the second position of the command section of any track. It means jump to another position in the block play list. In our case it means jump to the eighth item in the play list, which will be the next block (when we've created one).
This method is preferable to the one we used earlier because it uses less memory.
Add this block to the play list and it's on with the show... THE MAIN TUNE Before we continue, load a flutey sounding instrument as instrument 3.1 used PanFlute which can be found on Master Soundtracker disk ST-01, available from 17 Bit Software.
From now on, all notes entered in track 1 will use instrument 1, all notes entered in tracks 2 and 3 will use instrument 2, and all notes entered in track 4 will use instrument 3. All notes are entered in octaves 1 and 2 (F1). Now type in the rest of the song to get the whole tune: BLOCK 3 track 1:W-W-W-W-R- R-R-R-Q-Q-Q-Q-Q-Q-Q-Q-3

top to bottom); 00 00 00 00 01 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09.
TIDYING UP There are just one or two last little things to be added before our song is complete.
Go to block number 9 and change the command characters in line 00 of track 1 so that they read 1C64. Now go to line 63 of the same track and change the command characters to 0C00. Now position the outline cursor on the same track anywhere between the two lines. Serlect the range menu and click on VOL.
The C command sets the volume of a particular note. A volume of 64, which is the default, is the loudest. By setting a second volume to 00 (silent) before we selected VOL (short for Volume slide) we caused MED to perform a gradual fade- out of volume on track 1. Repeat the process on tracks 2,3 and 4.
SAVING YOUR WORK The last thing remaining thing to be done is to save your song. Select the files menu and type in the name of your song in the small file-name window. Then select Save Song, and when the requester appears, click on Song. This will save your work in a compressed form ready for you to edit at a later date.

SANDALL DONCASTER DN3 1NU Tel: 0302 8S7332 TEXT PLUS PRINTING
Many people have con- f tacted us this month about M the tact
that r we didn’t L ,'-y [ provide Mg ¦ instructions for how
to print using Text Plus 2.2e which we gave away on coverdisk
23, nor did we put a printer driver on the coverdisk.
It’s very easy to make this great word processor work using your own printer preferences provided you have a version of Workbench which is configured for your printer.
1. Insert the Workbench disk and load It.
2. Double click on the Shell or CLI icon.
3. Type in CU23:textplus2.2e return That's all there Is to It!
Easy or what? The computer will automatically ask you for the coverdisk and load Text Plus, after a few moments all disk activity will cease and the cursor will flash different colours to signify that the program is decompressing. If you only have a single drive, you’ll be returned to the Workbench screen. Click on the ‘Window to Back' .
Gadget at the top right of the screen and the Text Plus window will appear.When you select ‘Print' Text Plus will now use the Workbench printer preferences.
STREAKY PRINTOU NTOUTS When printing art-work tici from Deluxe Paint 2, either hand drawn or from Vidi, I get a printout which is very stripey on any dark areas.
I’ve tried messing about in the preferences but to no avail.
O Jennifer Bell, Co. Down,
N. Ireland The likely reason for the effects that you've
described isn't easily remediable. As you're doubtless
aware, most printers use a matrix to generate characters.
For example, a Star LC10 uses a matrix nine points high which
is equivalent to the number of pins on the printer. When
printing graphics, the bottom row of this matrix Is over
printed by the top row of the following line, thereby creating
dark lines approximately every half centimetre.
SCANNER RESOLUTI LOTION How can I load an Image from my hand ¦ scanner into i* Kind Words V* 20? Every time I try, the computer tells me that the resolution is too great.
David Comer, London There are several solutions to your problem and each has different advantages.
Most hand scanners allow you to set the scanning resolution before you scan.
If you scan with the resolution at its minimum setting, (usually 100 dots per Inch), you may find that Kind Words will accept the Image. However, there will be a visible decrease in the quality of the finished Image, though this won’t matter too much If you’re using It at a very small size.
Alternately you can load the image Into an art package, such as Deluxe Paint, where you'll probably discover that it's been created In medium resolution or interlace. Go to the screen format section of your art package and select low- res. When asked If you want to stretch the image to fit the page, replying ‘Yes' should produce an image which retains similar proportions to the original, although the page size will be much larger than the visible screen. If you then save off this re-formatted image, It should load into your word processor perfectly.
If this still doesn't work, It could be that Kind Words Is objecting to the size of the page rather than its resolution; try cropping the image in D-Paint until It's small enough.
FLASHING CAPS LOCK KEY I've read umpteen times that in order to lessen the chances of a virus spread- should be ¦yJB switched off for approxi- mately twelve seconds. When I switch mine off and then try to re-boot, the Caps Lock light flashes continually and the keyboard is totally disabled. This doesn't happen if I just reset it using the 'Vulcan Nerve Pinch’ technique (Control Amiga Amiga).
Is there a problem with my machine?
Thomas O'Neill, Bristol There are a number of things which could cause the effects that you've described, and all of them are bad!
In the first place, I don’t think that turning the computer off for twelve seconds is long enough to completely flush all viruses from memory. I've heard many different times being quoted as sufficient, but there's one thing everyone agrees on: thirty seconds is more than enough, so keep your machine switched off for that length of time.
There are viruses which can disable the keyboard, or even Invert keys, but to the best of my knowledge no virus causes the Caps Lock key to flash.
The flashing Caps Lock is a very common symptom of internal problems, and my Instinctive reaction is that your Amiga Is in deep trouble and should be looked at by a professional as soon as possible. Why not phone Commodore's only authorised repair centre, FMG, and ask their advice before paying someone to fix it? Their number is: 0733 371304. Or you can write to them at Facilities Management Group, FMG House, Newcombe Way, Orton Southgate, Peterborough, PE2 OSF.
LOADING PROBLEMS I recently purchased Prince ot Persia after playing it on a friend's machine. I „ booted it up but after a M couple of Z '(r) 4B * seconds a ' A§* message appeared saying 'Load failed, please try again’, which I did several times with no luck. The game loads on my friend's machine, and his version generates the same error message on my computer.
I've even tried disconnecting all peripherals and extra ram switched off but it makes no difference. All my other disks load so why won't this?
EXTEI Dan Smith. Scarborough There are many reasons why your game won't work properly but it's likely that your game won't load because of some system incompatibility. You were right to remove all extra peripherals as they can sometimes cause loading problems. For example, some games use protection systems which check for the presence of extra disk drives or Action Replay type cartridges, and if these are present the game falls to load.
More serious incompatibilities can be caused by the system Roms that lie at the heart of your Amiga.
Does your friend perhaps have Kickstart 1.3 and you're running 2.0?
Another possible fault could be caused by the protection systems used in some games. As the need to protect their games from theft becomes ever greater, companies sometimes experiment with new loading systems which require that your disk drives be in near-perfect allignment to load them. They do this by altering the speed at which the drives spin and if your head allignment is slightly out or the heads are dirty, you could encounter problems.
A variety of cleaning kits can be purchased from most computer retailers, whilst Free Spirit Software produce an alignment checking kit. Contact them at: PO Box 128, 58 Noble Street, Kutz Town, PA 19530, USA. Don't forget an international reply coupon.
. , Can I boot my Amiga from a second drive, and if so how?
David Laster, York Yes, you can boot your Amiga from a second drive using a boot selector switch which is fitted internally. They're available from Amiga Direct, 4 Whitton Road, Middlesex, TW1 1BY. Tel:081 891 6704.
DISK DRIVE NOISE The other day I bought Head over Heels which „ »j, I immediately loaded up.
Whilst it r * wasload-
m. JM* ing.the disk drive
* was making the most awful grinding noise, followed by periods
of apparent total inactivity. The game did eventually load
perfectly but I'm very concerned about the noise my drive was
making because I’m sure it’s not doing it any good. Can this be
avoided, and if so, how?
Stuart Arkham, Burnside The way that data is stored on a disk makes a significant difference to the noise that programs make when loading. When a program is loading, the drive head is moved in and out across the surface of the disk by a small engine called a stepper motor. The more a stepper motor has to move the heads, the noisier the loading process becomes.
The noise can be reduced by mounting the drive on rubber shock absorbers, although I’m not sure where you’d buy them from
- Tandy’s probably.
It has been reported that because of the protection system on some of Ocean's and other companies' games, the drive Is made to work much harder, and a number of 'experts' have argued that this may shorten the life of the drives significantly, or at the very least knock the heads out of allignment. It is known that forcing the heads to try and read data stored higher than track 81 will eventually damage drives although this doesn't seem to be how these protection systems work. Personally, I won't knowingly buy games with this form of protection because I feel sure that making the stepper
motor do all that extra work must reduce its life, at least fractionally, and I'd like to see companies stop this form of anti-piracy. You may have opened a nasty can of worms there Stuart.
Perhaps some software companies would care to comment?
PC EMULATORS & HARD DRIVES I'm intending to do an Open University
* L«. Course in computing , but the specification says that I
need an IBM PC compatible machine which can run unmodified PC
software.
I know of two pieces of Amiga hardware which convert it into a PC, the KCS PC Power board and A Tonce.
Could you advice me as to which is the most suitable?
I'm also hoping to buy a hard drive but I was wondering whether it’s possible to store both PC and Amiga data on the same drive or if I'd need two drives.
There's such a huge choice of drives available, can you give me any pointers as to which one I should buy? I was hoping to buy a drive which allowed me to add at least two megs of extra memory. I was also wondering what difference a SCSI interface makes; would it allow my to connect a Hitatchi COR 1750 CD Rom drive which also has a SCSI card on it?
Jef Ormerod, BFPO 103 Well Jef, I’m afraid I can't really comment on PC boards much except to say that people I know who’ve bought the KCS Board seem very happy with them. I suspect that they can’t emulate the higher colour modes of the Pcs although this isn’t likely to be a problem with text- based software.
Obviously, a 5.25 inch drive Is going to be essential if you want to load software stored on that format, although most stuff is now available in both 3.5 and 5.25 inch disk ver- slons.As for memory, I believe the KCS board actually allows you to add extra to it.
When it comes to saving data on a hard drive, yes, you can store both Amiga and PC software on a single drive although you might be advised to set up separate partitions for each type.
You're right, there are a bewilderingly large number of hard drives available, and I think that you must first establish which criteria are important to you before considering the various options. If speed is important, then any drive which includes a Quantum mechanism will perform well. My recommendation would be the GVP Series 2 available from Silica Systems on 081 309 1111.
It features a very efficient controller, extremely fast access times, a stylish case, up to 8 megs of upgradability and a SCSI (Small Computer Systems Interface) interface.
On the subject of SCSI compatibility: yes, in theory you should be able to connnect your ROM drive, but in practice it may require additional controllers or software to access the data on it so contact Hitachi for confirmation.
MODEM CABLE I have an internal Hayes compatible IBM modem I would like to use vlth my A2000. Is there a cable I can use to connect the edge jnnector to the serial port? I have an XT Bridgeboard but I'd like to use the modem with the Amiga side of the computer.
Rob Stewart, South Australia I'm not aware of any cable' to make the connection you’ve described, but Videk supply cables for every conceivable requirement. If they don’t have one I’m sure that they'd make one up for you.
Contact Videk at Unit 10, Bowman Trading Estate, Westmoreland Road, London, NW9 9RN. Tel 081 204 6690.
INSTALLATION When I tried to install a printer driver on the Deluxe Paint 2 disk, A window titled 'Install."
Part 1' appeared containing the error message ‘Unknown Command'. What am I doing wrong?
J. Powell, Ebbw Vale It appears as If you're trying to use the
wrong command to install the driver. The Install command Is
used to create boot-blocks on disks and has nothing to do with
printer drivers or anything else.
The easiest way to add a printer driver to a disk Is simply to copy It there, then activate it from preferences. A typical command might look something like this: Copy Workbenchextras:Devs Pri nters EpsonO to DPAINTII:Devs Prlnters Once that command has been entered, boot using your Dpalnt d sk and call up Prefences, either by loading it from CLI or double-clicking its icon at the Workbench screen. Once Preferences has been opened go to the printer section and scroll through the list of printers until the one you copied Is highlighted. Click on OK to return to the main Preferences
window, then 'Save' to store your new printer configuration permanently.
HP DESKJET PLUS DRIVER?
I'm just going to T * * buy a HP " " Deskjet Plus
• (or is it HP Deskjel 500?) And I'd like to know if there's a
special driver for this printer other than the standard Deskjet
one that comes on the Extras disk (and which doesn’t support
many of the printer's extra features)?
Incidentally, could you tell me where to contatt GVP in Belgium?
Gilles Dutys, Belgium I've never seen a driver specifically for the Deskjet Plus 500 but if any of you readers know of one, how aboout letting me know?
As for GVP In Belgium, I'm not certain but I don't think they have a Belgian division, rather their entire European operation Is handled by a couple of big distributors, one of whom Is certainly Silica Systems.
Contact Silica at Unit 10, Ruxley Corner, Sidcup, Kent, England. Tel: 081 309

MIDI SAMPLES Last year I bought a sampler and Protracker and set to work creating original music.
, I'm now think- ° ** 'n9 °* buying gjwSB use with Ihe Amiga because I find that the four sound channels on the Amiga is too limiting for what I want to do.
Before I splash out £200+ on a keyboard, I need to know whether I'll be limited to playing the keyboard’s built in instruments or whether I can output Amiga samples through any of its MIDI channels. As the music I’ll be making will be house dance it's important to include some of my own samples. Looking at reviews of sequencer software I notice that notes are entered on musical staves.
As I'm used to using Protracker's style of input (which is much easier than traditional notes and staves), I don’t really want to have to enter notes in the old style.
Are there any sequencing packages which allow me to enter notes in the style I'm used to whilst still allowing me to use samples?
Paul Thacker, Walsall Most MIDI keyboards, particularly in the price range you're looking at, don't allow you to download samples from any external sound source, let alone the Amiga. However, once your keyboard Is connected, don’t forget that you’ll still be able to use the four computer sound channels In addition to any the synth may be able to generate.
Provided all sound output is sent via a suitable mixer or amplifier, you can then record your tunes with the synth and computer sounds blended together.
On the subject of sequencers, there are actually extremely few that allow Input In the form of traditional music notation, most of them using a system more akin to Protracker. The primary function of sequencers is to allow you to play music in real time via your MIDI keyboard, building up the various tracks Individually.
This input can then be edited manually to create professional quality music.
If you particularly want to retain the Protracker style of input, both Protracker
1. 1 and Med allow you to direct output to MIDI, although Med
provides you with more sound control commands such as pitch
bend etc. For the beginner, I would recommend this package as
it Introduces most concepts In an easily understandable
manner.
You can buy Med and Octamed from Amlganuts United, 169 Dale Valley Road, Hollybrook, Southampton, SOI 6QX. 17 Bit Software should be able to help with Protracker - their address is PO Box 97, Wakefield, WF1 1XX.
AMOS ON HARD DRIVE I own an A2000 and 40 megabyte hard drive, so I decided to install AMOS on it and this is where the problems started. According to the instruction manual (page 4), the procedure should be performed via CLI. It doesn't work, and only succeeds in producing the 'File not an object module' error message!!
Darrin Rapaport, Benoni, South Africa Load the main AMOS program and then run the Install.AMOS program through the editor. If you then follow the easy to understand instructions, you should succeed In Installing the program In no time.
ANY PROBLEMS?
If you have any questions of a remotely technical nature, we'll do our best to answer them.

Justine Thomas, U2 SUPER CARS 1 & 2 Could anyone please give me a cheat for any one of these games? They are driving me mad.
Ross Carter, U3 BRAT Helpl I'm going crazy. I can't finish the first stage on this game. Do any of you out there have a cheat? I need help as I keep falling to my doom.
Thomas Moen, U4 DARKMAN I have been playing this game for months and I keep getting killed on the roof. Do some of your readers have an infinite lives cheat?
Thomas Roel, U5 THE SIMPSONS Has anyone got a cheat for the Simpsons game? I find it really hard. I can get onto the skateboard but a stupid punk just knocks me off. So, if any of your readers can help me, I will be very grateful.
Andrew Weir, U6 F-l8 INTERCEPTOR Please help and give me a cheat for easy entry to every stage of this game.
Apparently, there are a bunch'of entry codes but I don’t know any.
Nick Devon, U7 DRAGONS LAIR - SINGE S CASTLE Any cheat for this ‘game’ would be really appreciated, Nick Devon, U8 FUTURE WARS Can anyone help me? I've had the game for quite some time now and I'm totally stuck in the sewer level with the slimy monster.
Ronald Naber, U9 ZOMBIE Could somebody please tell me what to do after I've collected everything in Zombie? I'm totally lost and don't have a clue.
David Wolf, U10 ESCAPE FROM COLDITZ I am looking for a cheat for Escape From Coldilz. I can find a lot of keys, lock picks etc, but I can't seem to get anywhere. Please, just give me a tip or hint as I'm loosing patience and I didn’t pay 20 quid for nothing!
Lee Gaskin, U11 MEGA-LO-MANIA Are there any cheats for this power seeking game? I don't seem to be able to build anything fast enough before I'm nuked!
Adam Day, U12 THUNDERHAWK I think that this is a great game and have completed all but the Alaskan scenario. In fact, I cannot even complete the first mission as I am always told that I have messed up the mission when I return to the base. I have tried everything from running away to levelling everything in the area but I can’t get it right. Please help me out before I go mad.
Chris Heeley, U13 ARMOUR GEDDON Help! I've been playing this game for months but I'm still in the middle of nowhere! I badly need a cheat, such as infinite fuel, shields and weapons.
Paul McLean, U14 SPEEDBALL 2 I’m always the loser on this game. I keep getting beaten by Fatal Justice and Super Nashwan! I need cheats and I need them now.
Paul McLean, U1S ROBOCOP 3 I cannot beat the robot ninja who always manages to get the better of me. Is there anyway I can beat him in fair combat or has anybody got a cheat to reduce him to a three stone weakling?
David Yewdall, U16 GODFATHER This great new US Gold game is really smart but I can't blow away the end-of- level gangster on level one. He just shoots too fast to get in close and polish him off and he soaks up bullets better than a sponge absorbs water.
Angela Lowther, U17 HAGAR THE HORRIBLE This 'horrible' game is terribly frustrating as I keep dying when I come up against the end-of-level army. Is there a cheat for infinite energy or lives?
Chocky Turner, U18 POWERMONGER: WW1 Look, I'm a Powermonger fan and all that and consider myself to be something of an expert, but this data disk is a real pain in the rear. I just cannot invent a tank before the other side crushes my army. How can I get one or is there some kind of cheat? I know Bullfrog often include cheats in their game so please help me!
Colin Langley, U19 OH NO! MORE LEMMINGS I might have most of the level codes to this game, but it's still impossible to finish some levels. How on earth can I stop my furry friends jumping to their deaths on levels 56, 70 and 74?
Mr A. R. Brown, U20 ROBOCOD Has anyone got a level skip for this brilliant platform game as I can only get so far and I want to take a look at some of the later levels?
Steve Allan, U21 ELVIRA I've completed the Fire World and have wandered everywhere in the Ice World but can't seem to get transported to the Castle. Has anyone gdt a tip for me to follow and help save the day?
David Reilly, U22 RESPONSES XENON II (Tl) Pause the game at any time and type ‘Russian Air’.
Mark Dempster, Scotland TEST DRIVE 2 (T2) Whilst your car is moving type GAS and the car will skip to the next gas station automatically.

Mark Dempster, Scotland TMHT (T5) To get into the blimp, go over it so you can't see yourself and press ENTER on the separate key pad. The blimp will light up and you will be able to move it about.
Mark Dempster, Scotland Fl 8 INTERCEPTOR (T6) Take-off, wack on your afterburner and fly to maximum altitude. This will make it easier to dog fight but don't fire a missile unless you are fully locked-on.
Mark Saunders, Poole.
SKIDZ (Tl 3) During play hold down fire on your joystick and press ALT. While holding down both of these, press C for infinite everything or L to play any level.
Tristan Greaves, Hampshire ELITE (Tl 5) When asked for the first code word from the manual, type SARA and then enter the correct code. Now, at any point in the game, press * and enter any one of these codes: 18 FF - Lots of money, 24 01 ECM System, 2F 01 - Energy Bomb, 32 01 - Docking Computer, 38 01 - Military Laser, 3F 01 - Cloaking Device and Esc returns you back to the game.
John Vickers, Herts FLOOD (Tl 6) To access any of the 42 levels of the game, enter MEEK as a level password.
Tristan Greaves, Hampshire DOGS OF WAR (Tl 9) To become invincible simply type in TIMBO while playing then press F5. The enemies bullets will not be able to harm you anymore.
Christopher Jenkins, Southport FULL CONTACT (T21) While fighting type in QAZWXEDCR- FVIGBYHNUJM. Before you complete HOW TO USE THE HELPLINE IT'S EASY. Just send in your letter, marking your envelope with the appropriate code number if you are sending a response or mark if 'Enquiry' if you need some help. Post your letters to : Play to Win Helpline, CU, Priory Court, 30-32 Farringdon Lane, London EC1R 3AU. If you are making an enquiry include a few lines explaining why you need a poke, cheat, help etc. If you are replying to any of these enquiries, don’t forget to mark your letter with the
reference code for the person you are responding to. If you send in more than one enquiry, please put each one on a separate sheet of paper. If you send in a response but have an enquiry too include them on separate sheets.
That way we can file everything in neat alphabetical order.
This sequence your opponent will give up, allowing you to go on to the next level. Remember: Don't press S after this or the game will crash!
Tristan Greaves, Hampshire AFTERBURNER (T23) Type in THUNDERBLADE when the game is paused. Pressing G will replenish your missiles, while N gives you extra lives.
Tim Crowe, Cornwall ZAK MCKRAKEN (T24) Before leaving home get the kitchen knife and the egg, then fly to any destination by knocking on the bus with the knife and using the cash card in the machine on the bus.
Do all the necessary stuff with the Destination Computer, then exit to the left. When on the plane walk left and enter the toilet and close the door. Use the toilet roll in the sink and turn on the tap. Now, quickly run to the right and put the egg in the microwave, close it and then turn it on. By now the hostess girl will order you to go back to your seat and ask if you did this mess.
The hostess will stay near the microwave. Pick up the seat cussion in front and you'll find the lighter on the floor nearby. Look in one of the cabinets to find an oxygen tank.
Tony Cregan, Manchester MEGA-LO-MANIA (T26) My sister bought this game from the computer show and, because we find it so hard, here are a few Epoch codes for the first four levels. Epoch 1 - CUEDEXVVINW, EPOCH 2 - TLDDC- QAKPBQ, Epoch 3 - WJPDOKPPZHE, Epoch 4 - KJUCGGQWDOG. I hope this helps some people out.
Edward Jagger, Lincoln CHIP'S CHALLENGE (T30) Start the game as normal and press F. The screen flips upside down and the game is ready to accept cheats. Try entering: SAGITTARIANS MAKE BETTER LOVERS. This gives you an infinite supply of keys, shields, ice boots and magnets. 09 12 57 gives you unlimited time. I THINK THEREFORE I AM means you don’t need to collect the chips to escape. Remember to include spaces and the full stops. Now you can press C to skip to the next level.
Pressing F will return you to the game.
Alan Miles, Shoreditch jMHMjlGHT RESISTANCE On the title screen pause the game and type ITSEASYWHENYOUKNOWHOW and see what happens!
John Kerr, Scotland SWORD OF SODAN (S5) I'll put you out of your misery! Play the game until you get enough points for the high score table then die. Enter your name as NANCY (I kid you not), and when you play you will have infinite lives. Pressing return allows you to skip levels.
David Atherton, Liverpool RODLAND (SIO) When the title screen appears, press P to pause the game. Press the Help key five times then unpause and you should see a white heart in the top right of the screen. You can now press the Space Bar to advance levels.
David HIM, Scotland ALIEN BREED (SI 2) The mazes always have a separate exit route for a fast run back to the deck lift.
So, don't try to leave the same way as you came in. A little exploring will pay off. Also, there are no operational computers on the last two levels so make sure you have lots of ammo and lives.
The laser gun is a must as it is very efficient on ammunition and very effective on the aliens.
Calvin Brewer, Hants THUNDERBLADE (R14) Type CRASH on the high score table then, during the game, press Help to advance a level.
Tony Weston, Kent SATAN (R26) Hold down Alt 1 D during game one.
You'll receive infinite lives and, by pressing Alt 1 M, you'll get infinite energy and credits.
Julian Price, Bedfordsheer One of the most enjoyable games to have come out of the Readysoft stable.
Perhaps a sequel is called for? Anyway, I've not heard of a cheat, but have completed the game by meticulously mapping the monsters so that you know when they're coming. I'm afraid I think that's the only way to do it. As for the huge guardians, a combination of skill, speed, observation and luck should see you clear.
Steve Fredrickson, London BACKCHAT WALK-OVER WRESTLING I am writing to you with a complaint that is all-too common ot late. It's not regarding the high price of games, but about their ever-decreasing durability. My key example is Ocean’s WWF Wrestlemania.
When I got the game home and opened it up to reveal the video inside, I was most impressed, but on loading the game I was met by a rather bland option screen. I soon got stuck in, though, and found it to be quite a good game with a wide variety of moves available.
After an hour, though, I found myself pitted against the final baddy. Sergeant Slaughter, and beat him to a pulp. Can you imagine how miffed I was to see my twenty-five quid disappear like that? Why can’t software houses give us value for money? OK, so it doesn’t apply to all games, with Midwinter, Beast II, and Gods springing to mind.
It's a real shame about WWF as it could have been a great game, if it wasn't for the nonexistent difficulty. I can now complete it every go and my interest in it has long gone. So please software companies, do something about it!
James Lynden, Stoke Bishop.
UNDESERVED NUMBER ONE So WWF Wrestlemania was the number one game over Christmas was it? How very deserved, I don't think. How on Earth did this piece of trash get anywhere near the charts? Even Epyx’s C64 Wrestling game drops on this from a great height. I was unlucky enough to have had this bought for me for Christmas and, as a fan of WWF, I was initially quite pleased - until I played it that is. The graphics are nothing special and the wrestlers don't exactly resemble the real-life grapplers, and the moves are more luck than judgment. Real superficial stuff.
As can be expected, as soon as Boots was open again I trotted along and told the assistant that it didn't loaded. The one good thing about WWF, though, was that it was sold out and, feigning disappointment, I paid an extra fiver and bought myself a copy of Populous II- the best thing I have ever done. The moral of this story? Please stop buying stuff because o'f the name. Looking at Boot's chart, Ocean seemed to have a monopoly and when you look at the quality of stuff like The Simpsons and WWF they don’t deserve it. So, if you want to spend the rest of your gaming days playing trash, keep
it up. Me? I'll stick to home-grown original stuff from now on.
David Williamson, Chepstow.
People either love WWF (mostly the younger readers, admittedly) or hate it.
Personally, we're not so keen and feel that it could have been done a lot better. Even so, as an overall package with the video you can’t argue that Ocean have tried to bolster its short-lived gameplay.
CREDIT WHERE CREDIT'S DUE I’ve just bought myself a copy of Populous II with my Christmas money and I can honestly say it's the best game I have ever bought.
Since I bought it I have played nothing else, and it's many tricks and twists, as well as humorous touches make this the ultimate 'God' game. I used to own a copy of the original Populous but this is far superior in every department. So, for anyone out there contemplating what to buy, I recommend you buy a copy as soon as possible.
Congratulations to Bullfrog for a perfect game!
Darren Carpenter, Gwent.
WILL PIRACY BE BEATEN Whilst I commend Ocean for trying to beat piracy with their new dongle, I wonder if they know that the game has already been cracked and is available to run without their little gadget. I was contemplating buying Robocop III as it looked really good and I eagerly awaited its release.
However, a couple of days before it was released a mate of mine said that he could me a copy if I wanted one. Not believing him, I bought myself a 'proper' copy - dongle and all. However, true to his word, after a couple of days he came round to show me his cracked version.
Whilst I wasn't angry at forking out for the packaged version, I just thought it was a pity that Ocean had spent all that money to no avail. I know this makes me sound a goody-goody, and I've copied my fair share of games in the past, but I just know that it is the paying games player who will lose out. Still, I've no regrets of paying for my Robocop III as it is an excellent game - if a little short-lived - and I think that Ocean shouldn’t be disheartened by this set-back and should definitely try again to beat piracy.
Sean Buckley, Aldrington.
CD NEEDY I don’t think I can hold myself together for much longer. The advent of CD technology for computers was announced way back when the CDTV was first being experimented with You also announced that there would be a smaller add-on for present Amiga owners and. Although there was a lot of confusion as to the difference ol these products, we, the readers, have managed to struggle by picking up bits of information where we could. Being slightly better informed than most, thanks to your mag, I've managed to resist buying a complete CDTV because I know we can not be far away from that ROM
release.
But please, please, please, someone must surely by now have a firm release date that's not going to be changed yet again.
I don't care how long I have to wait, as long as I'm not chasing shadows for the rest of my life!
Paul Anderson, Stockport Well this is a problem that's as old as a software reviewer's memory. The manufacturers of the CD ROM drive can't guarantee a release date so neither can we. But what is certain is that you will see the device before Easter and it's actually in warehouses as we speak.
We heard about the cracked version quite soon after it appeared, which was apparently released BEFORE Ocean got Robo III in the shops. Obviously, they weren't very happy about it, but expect further battles against piracy very soon.
MAG-NIFICENT!
Alter wandering in the magazine wilderness. I've now decided that CU is the one for me. Being of meagre budget, I have to very selective about what I spend my money on - both in software and mags - and CU ranks as tops for me. Congratulations on your ‘new look’, which is far removed from your old game-only days and the magazine has both grown and matured as a result.
Unlike other mags you steer away from being both patronising and childish, with informative and witty articles.
No, I'm not after a T-shirt, but congrats on a job well done.
Jason Darmin, Epsom, DIAMOND I've noticed that Diamond computers are offering an A1500 Plus for sale which r THE TOP FIVE This month we have the ten all-time faves of Tina Clarke who hails from Doncaster.
1 Heimdall (Core) 2 Robocop3(Ocean) 3 Robocod (Millennium) 4 Rainbow Islands (Ocean) 5 Supremacy (Virgin) 6 Speedball 2 (Mirrorsoft) 7 SWIV (Storm) 8 Kick Off (Anco) 9 Jimmy White's (Virgin) 10 Viz (Virgin) WRITE TO CU, 30-32 FARRINGDON LANE, LONDON, EC 1 R 3AU apparently uses the new Kickstart. Is this an official Commodore release or grey import?
Stewart Sterlan, Bude.
We phoned Diamond to check and it seems that the new A1500 Plus is simply a standard A1500 with 2.0 ROMs inside it. It seems that this is what Commodore are now supplying them with.
PROPAGANDA ANGER After reading your article concerning the 80,000 new Amigas sold, written by Steve Franklin, I feel compelled to write. The pages were little more than a publicity vehicle for the company and, as I am one of the people who bought the 500P, I can tell him now that the ‘unfounded’ accusations about its software compatibility are completely true and he can come round to my house anytime he likes to check.
The real reason I am writing is not to complain about Commodore - after all, the Amiga is a fabulous machine
- but that you gave valuable space to such a naff article. If you
are going to concern yourself with a retrospective about
Commodore, who better to write it than yourselves?
Martin Holmes, Manchester Well, Martin, we think you've missed the point.
The article was to herald what was in store for the Amiga in the forthcoming year and its diversity of applications. It also reassures readers that, despite the strong belief by a lot of people that the PC will be the machine of the '90s, Commodore themselves are committed to Amiga users and believe strongly in the machine's longevity.
Who better to write about that than Commodore?
SOUND FOR SOUND GOT NOTHIN’TO SAY? Howca„,ou change the face ot Amiga entertainment and productivity it you just sit back and take the bugs, poor quality hardware and software, and lack ot customer service? On the other hand, feel tree to praise where praise is due. This is the premier forum to air your views on anything connected with the Amiga scene.
Write without delay to the usual Backchat address. We re itching to find out what you think... You asked for it so here it is.
Just a few of my favourite tunes and sound effects from games as requested in the December issue of CU Amiga. Firstly, the main prize for impressive music must go to the dazzling tunes in Shadow Ol The Beast. Love it or hate it the soundtracks are out of this world.
Secondly, anyone who's got a 1 Mb machine must rate UBI Soft's excellent Unreal: the various sound effects of wind howling, crackling fire and rushing water must rate amongst the best ever implemented in any game. The sound track is also fabulous.
However, at the top of the pile is the recent Mirrorsoft release First Samurai, the best music and sound effects of any game I've experienced.
Steven Grace, Moreshead We'd almost forgotten we'd asked Steven. Thanks anyway and if anyone else has got any favourltes....send them somewhere else please!
COMPETITION COUNT UP I've entered almost all of your competitions in the last six months and have not seen many results. No, I'm not talking about winning the prizes but the actual competition results. You haven’t published any for ages so how about an up to date competition winners blitz?
David Sullivan, Southall OK, David where have you been? A lot of our competitions run for several months in order for the entries to reach us. They come from all over the world, so just because your Postie has a quick jog around the M25 before getting to us the day after you send your entry, spare a thought for the aborigine in the Australian Outback who has to trek for weeks just to get ¦n his entry to the local post master before it’s sent by jet to out roof top control centre. But don’t worry, by pure chance we’re due for a 'blitz' next month so keep reading.
LICENCED TO THRILL I was browsing through back issues of CU Amiga when I came across the article about the computer games that were planned but never released. The Marylin Monroe adventure, The X- Men arcade game, etc. It got me thinking that whilst software houses chuck money around like water on Terminator, Robocop and Turtles licences, there must be thousands of games they could snap up for next to nothing. For example, I'd love to see a game featuring the old American classic adventure TV series, The Time Tunnel, the futuristic robot western, Westworld with Yul Brynner, or, if you
wanted to splash a bit of money about, what about Blade Runner or the Great Escape. What do you think?
Sean Howies, Scotland Some great ideas there, although we’re not sure about the Great Escape.
With all the stars in that film there wouldn’t be anything left of the royalties after agents had had their slice. But Westworld and Blade Runner would make brilliant games, especially on CD. Imagine gun fighting it out with actual film footage from the film with Yul Brynner, or visiting one of the other worlds and living the life-style of anyone you liked. Hunting down robots with Harrison Ford sounds the most exciting, though. However, time is money, and due to the megabucks which most licences cost, a software company has to churn out a game quickly to make a fat enough return. That
might be sad, but it's true.
There are now dozens ot oames which allow two Amiga users to compete against each other, with companies such as Bullfrog and Microprose recognising that a good program can Oe improved substantially by the inclusion of datalink and modem options.
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... Connecting two Amigas couldn't be more straightforward: simply plug a null-modern cable into the serial port ot each machine and you’re ready to go. But why pay ten or even fifteen pounds to buy a datalink cable, when you can make your own in minutes tor tar less? Despite the necessary leads having twenty-tive pin plugs on them only three ot the terminals actually need to be connected; the
others are there to conform to the RS232 standard. The serial port has a pin tor transmitting data, another tor receiving it, and a third which acts as a ground. When connecting two Amigas, the transmit pin ot one machine is connected to the receive pin of the other, and vice versa, whilst the ground lead simply joins the same pin ol each machine.
You can buy the assorted parts from any hobbyist or professional electronics shop, such as Tandy or Maplins. You'll need two RS232 plugs lor connecting to the serial port. These are also known as 25- pin sub-miniature connectors, and come In two varieties: one of which is suitable tor ribbon cables, and the other will work with any type ot cable. Although the ribbon-type connectors require no soldering, they're more expensive, and may prove a little tiddly to use in the long run. I recommend the other type, as it doesn’t come with a plastic Insulating case, and only cost roughly two pounds
each.
You’ll also need some three- core wire ot roughly the thickness used in light household appliances.
Don't get more than you need, though, as the longer the cable connecting the two computers, the greater the possibility ol electrical interference between the machines.
You will only be able to achieve the highest transfer rates with less than two metres ot cable.
DIY DATALINK As more games allow you to connect two Amigas together, Mat Broomfield shows you how to make your own datalink cable for less than a fiver.
All that remains is to solder the wire to the pins as shown in diagram 1. Twist the loose ends ot the wires and apply a small amount of solder to "tin" them into a rigid point. You'll find it easier if you put a little solder on the actual pins of the plug before you try to attatch .
The wire. Be careful not to overheat the terminals as they can melt their plastic sheath, making the pin loose and unreliable.

• Again, Again forced an absolutely appalling adaption of The
Munsters down our throats. The original cast of this cult '60s
TV sitcom must have turned in their graves. And you thought the
Munsters Today was awful...
• US Gold reckoned over 100.000 copies of Thunderblade were sold
in Europe within the first five days of release.
According fo our files, CU said the conversion of this Sega hydraulic coin-op was 'an essential addition to every Amiga owning blast'em-up fans software library’. Our writers certainly were verbose in the good old days, eh?
• This is one Mindscape prefers to forget. Willow, based around
the fantasy film flop from George Lucas, was a bit of a
stinker. Sorry Mr Mindscape but nobody ‘enjoyed it to the hilt'
as your advert at the time suggested.
TWO YEARS AGO
• Turtle mania started to hit British shores when Konami launched
the arcade game. Journalists were comparing these Teenage
Mutant Ninja Turtles to the Cabbage Patch Dolls or HeMan, that
is, merely another short-lived kiddie fad. They were wrong. The
heroes in a half shell are still popular now.
Only Bart Simpson can steal the limelight and toy sales.
• Popular Amiga games being played at the time included F29
Retaliator, Hard Drivin' and SimCity. Buzz was itching for
somebody to pick-up the rights to Ridley Scott's thriller Black
Rain starring Michael Douglas. Sadly, another one slipped
through the net.
• The veteran ZX Microfair computer shows were finally put out to
rest. Out of the ashes rose the All-Formats Computer Fair. This
unpretentious' event has gone from strength to strength. The
organisers are promising more venues during
1992.
ONE YEAR AGO
• A most excellent month for brilliant new releases. The only
trouble? Should gamesters go for Lemmings or Speedball II?
Both games are still selling well and it remains a tough decision today. CU AMIGA believed Lemmings was 'the perfect family game’ while the faultless Speedball II turned out to be the Bitmap's best' thus far. Which one do you think is better?
Drop us a line at the usual address...
• Gossip reached our news desk that Ocean was preparing a third
Robocop game. Rumours suggested it was going to be a
multi-directional shoot'em-up programmed in-house. Okay, we
were slightly off-track for once! Robocop 3 is, of course, an
original attempt to tackle a movie license through the use of
3D graphics and novel animation sequences. Digital Image
Design, of F29 Retaliator fame, was the development team in
charge.
READERS SUBMISSIONS Here at CU we recognise Ihe hours of work that goes into your entries for our Screen and Tune of the Month competitions, to say nothing of Ihe time you spend putting together program submissions.
Much as we’d love to. We simply can't include every entry or submission on our coverdisks, but to show our gratitude, the very least we can do is acknowledge the hard work that you've put in by printing a list of entries received each month.
If you want to be sure that v e've received your entry, this is the place to look, so we'll start off by mentioning some of the entries we've received over recent months: alongside each name is a percentage which represents MV opinion of how good your work is compared to others in the same month. Originality and execution both play a large part in this mark.

Next moi mmutifui all Be sure to get next month’s issue of CU Amiga for the very best in games and serious uses... BRILLIANT TUTORIALS There' 11 be a whole wealth of product tests: watch out for reviews of Audio Sculpture, Visionary and API AS 2 1ong with a host of excellent tutorials, including how to set up printer drivers, make your own slideshows and how to make a scart lead to use for video digitising. UNRIVALLED GAMES COVERAGE And continuing our unrivalled games coverage, next month’s Screen Scene will boast Atar«tetwo coin-op conversions, Indy Heaf*.and Big Run, whilst Gremlin’s
Harlequin is now in our sweaty grasp and is looking rather neat - but for the full low-down, though, stay tuned. Also, after months of waiting, Ocean are promising Sensible Software’s decidedly surreal Wiz Kid, and Team 17 should also deliver the first review copy of Project X if all goes to-plan.
DISK BONANZA Our two disks will again be full to the brim with useful utilities, playable demos of the latest hot programs and games, and a clutch of complete games from the PD circuit. It'll be the best yet!
As well as these, expect all of the big titles first, as well as our usual exclusive In Dev reports, and the most comprehensive playing guides around in Play To Win.
