The AMIGA POWER guide to every Amiga game ever, ever, ever. Ever.

You want Absolute Power You got it. What that means is a 25-page guide to every Amiga game ever released. Improbable, but true. We've gone right back to 1985 to include every release from every single Amiga software company. That includes budget games, compilations, and all the other original and licensed games ever available lor Amiga users. Make no mistake, this is a real milestone in Amiga gaming. Nobody has ever even attempted to do this kind of thing before. And now here it is - right in your hands. With Absolute Power, you have access to more Amiga games information than anyone thought possible. You have the entire universe of Amiga games at your fingertips. Any game, any software company, any genre - they're all here. But enough of this fanfare, on with the show. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Absolute Power...

ABSOLUTE POWER - HOW IT WORKS

Trust us. it's dead simple. With each game we've included a mini review, a star rating out of five with red stars for the real hits), plus references for when it was originally reviewed in AMIGA POWER (if at all - BAP indicates Before Amiga Power), and an availability guide. This may be a rating from 0 to 10. or it may be some handy (or not so handy) comment about where you might be able to get hold of a copy. And. er, that's it. See, we told you it was dead simple.

EDIT AMIGA POWER FOR A DAY!

Okay, we admit it. We re not perfect, and there may be one or two games missing from this gargantuan effort. If you know of any strange, lunny, obscure or just plain stupid omissions then send your own Absolute Power-style mini revlew(s) (complete with details on price, manufacturer, and availability) to HA! MISSED ONE, DIDN'T YOU, AMIGA POWER, 30 MONMOUTH STREET, BATH BA1 2BW. We ll pick our favourite, and if that's you then you'll get to be the Editor of AMIGA POWER for a day. We ll bring you over to our Bath offices, sit you In the Ed's chair, and let you coordinate things, before popping oft lor an extended lunch hour. It's a once in a lifetime offer, so gel your reviews in by 30th April lo stand a chance of gaining absolute power (lor a day, at least).

ol llttla llgurat who light lully-anlmated battles, and there are three levels ol map lo view as well." It should be available In May.

Whan Two World* War Is another strategy war game, this lima between two planets and set In 2121. "Despita Ihe title it's less ol a war game It's a scMi game where most ol what you do Is not actually lighting but allocating raaourcas - farms, lactorlas, research centres and so on. You can than design end build different military units, and the fighting lakes place over three different locations, your planet, the enemy's and the space In between." When Two Worlds War will be available In March.

Finally, flutes of Engagement 2, lollow-/ up lo the highly successful., well, guess. "The core ol

•    the game will be very _ recognisable," says

Chris, which should please fans of the original Described as

*    a real-time, strategic space combat game. It Includes a mission and campaign builder, and you can even design the solar system within which the battles will taka place. It'll be available around summer lime.

ATOM SMASHER - THE CODES!

Oops! Like all other humans, wean AMIGA POWER are predictably fallible, and so forget to print the codes lor ATOM SMASHER. Ihe lab game of! issue 22 a cover disk. Hundreds of phone calls (well, over twelve) have prompted us to rectify this most heinous error.

First up Is a plain old cheat - type In CATHERINE 2ETA JONES on the menu screen and It'll say Ready.' Start the game normally, then use 'S' to skip levels, L’ to toggle Infinite lives on or alt. and T lo toggle invulnerability.

The code lor the level editor Is ZANDALEE:

ESC - Return to main menu.

DEL - Totally blanks the selected depth.

M - Toggles between BLOCK and BADDIE mode G - On depth 2, toggles graphic style through Metal. Rock. Snow. Brick. Krypton.

[ and ] - Toggle through existing level*.

F1/F2 - Play level In 1/2 player mode.

Designing a maze

Each level consists ol three layers, and pressing D' will go through them Depth 0 is where the backgrounds are designed, depth I is where the ice, mud and mines go. and depth 2 Is where you actually design the mass. On depth 2. pressing SPACE' takes you to the block select screen, where you can select any block by prasslng lire. This I hen puls you In BLOCK MODE (which

appears at the bottom right ol the icieinl where you can place the block by pressing tire again.

Placing characters Select depth 2 and press M to go Into BADDIE MODE. Position both players by pressing T and '2' at the desired positions. You can toggle through the baddies using Iha comma and lull-stop keys, and can place them using fire, or replace existing baddies by first selecting the space, and then adding your preference. Baddle characteristics can be changed by placing the cursor over H and than using Ihe arrow keys:

UP - Increase baddle speed.

LEFT/RIGHT - Decraase/lncraase the rata at which baddies drop hazards. Irom 01 (a hazard every move] to 99 (every 99 moves). 00 means it'll never drop anything.

DOWN - Increase drop speed by 10.

Pressing '9' will change the speed al which the baddies will then appear.

Once you've placed all Iha initial baddies, pressing RETURN takas you onto the QUE screen, where you can place up to SO replenished ones. Pressing 0‘ will change the lime between ihese baddies appearing.

Any new levels can now be saved on a blank disk by reluming lo the main menu and selecting the SAVE option. Simple, n'asl-ce-paa

MORE HUMANS

If you’va gol through Human% and you're gagging for more, why not go for 7ha Human Raca - Tha Juraatlc LavalM, Mirages now follow-up. It glvoi you BO more levels that ara apparently tha toughest yet, and will ha available ai both a data dlik which you can uae with tha original and also as a standalone version. Tha levels feature more dinosaurs, more tribesmen and even more chaotic terrains for you to overcome, though you still have all Ihe objects Irom the original game at your disposal. It'll be available very soon at £19.99 for the data disk or C29.99 for the stand alone version.

REVEALED! THE SHADY PAST OF TV GLADIATOR WOLF!

Taking our cua Irom those tacky nawa anlppati on Tha Ward, wa'ro delving Into gossip tarritory. Taka a vary closa look at tha baaleaka on tha artwork Irom tha old Pataca hack-'am-up Barbarian. Yas, it's none other than Wolf, ol muaclabound TV lariat Tha Gladiators. Wa Just bat ha doesn't have that ana In his portfolio. Er. that's It really.

I'M INNOCENT I TELL YOU!

Strange but true, Psygnosis ara working on a naw adventure lor Iha Amiga called (aak!) innocent - Until Caught. Representing something of a departure far the company (la it's not a cula puxxla/plallorm game),

Nik Wild, Producer of innocent - Unlii Caught, axplalns: "innocent - Unlll Caught puts tha playar in tha rota el Jack T Ladd, having Just baan capturad by tha Intargalactlc Revenue Service, who promptly give you a huge tax bill. It's than up to tha playar to go alt and tlnd a way to pay It. As tha plot unfolds you realise that there's mors to tha IRS than maats Iha aya."

From this simple baginning a series of events and twists el fata taka tha playar into daapar and daaper watar, tram planet to planat, etc, ate. Psygnosis ara keeping tha visual side under wraps, but It Iha actual game can match tha storyboardlng. than wa could ba looking at something really Interesting. Following tha PC version, tha Amiga game Is slatad lor an April release.

Game: FA Premier League Football

Publisher: Ocean Authors: Audiogenic (Graham Biighe)

ETA: April

Briefly: Hey. MTV generation. anyone remember issue H7 Anyone7 II you do. you if recall our giant preview of (what we thought would be) last summer's big football game releases Included in the superbly written feature (That's enough -Ed) was a game called World Class Soccer by Audiogenc. which claimed (or

rather, the company's boss did on its behall) to be a much better game' than the then torthcoming Sensible Soccer WCS was a thematc sequel to Audiogenic's encellenf (at the second attempt) World Class Rugby. and boasted a Unique Selling Point in the term ot a two perspectives apptoach giving the player a choice between overhead vew Sen&tw Soccer style and Manchester Unled Eurppe-esque sideways on horizontal saoirng. with Ihe viewpoints switchabie at any time, even in the middle ol an action replay

Sadly, despte being pencilled m to' an August release World Class Soccer suffered a succession ot setbacks and ended up not getting released at all Now the code's been bought up by Ocean along with a useful FA Premier League licence lag. and with a lew last little bits ol fiddling, the game Should Imally see the light ol day any minute now We'd normally shout Hurrah' at this pomt, but I've got a bit ot a sore head and can't be bothered

'As tor the game itseil.

It certainty contains a lot more combat and exploration than in the lirst game, but the ptot is the most important element, unlottng as you get deeper into Ihe game I should mention at this [Mint that the character psychology is very sophisticated m ishar 2. The characters have a targe degree ot independence -Ihe team members wil actually light and kilt each other, disobey orders, betray you. steal from you. or alternatively indulge in remarkably altruistic behaviour over and above the call ol duty This adds a sophisticated management element just not matched in other RPGs"

Verdict So Far: ishar 2 is shaping up to be big and beautilui As to whether it can compete in these days ol Captive 2 and Legends Ot Valour, we re not so sure Still, the character system sounds intriguing, and PPG games rely on plot sirudure and ease ot use. which Silmanls seem keen to get rflht

So. how do they work exactly'’

'It s an interesting elied. but to be honest it's very bonng to explain. It s much better when you actually see it in action '

Weil, that's an honest answer. Obviously Ishar 2 laces shfl competition

Irom Legends Ot Valour How do you rate your chances’

'Valour k an excellent game, but it can't be directly compared to ishar 2 in the Ishar games we've adopted various graphical and programming techniques to achieve a desired etleet. which * to give a visual and gameplaying equivalent ol a Tolkien novel, rich si dieamlike fantasy images, colour, sound and plot we think that the techniques and style we've used achieve this efleet Those m Valour, excellent though they undoubtedly are, would not.'

The only chance of survival was lo evacuate the island on a giant Hying boat, but the boat couldn’t fly without the power ol the re united talisman Each tribe must then take their piece ol talisman to the centre ol die island and jar together as one lemming race once more

Okay, so that s the plot So lar. so unremarkable The thing about this plot, though, is that n allows lor a game

structure that's a work ol genius Each tribe has to work thiough 10 levels lo

get thei' piece ol talisman, but they don t have lo do il in sequence At any lime, you can switch between tribes and have a go at gelling a different one a little bit further on it you re having problems with your lirst choice This means that you have to be completely llummoied at 12 separate points before you re completely stuck At any pomt you can save the current state ol the game out to disk (no more passwords, which means everyone s going to have to play through the levels for themselves, and a bloody good thing too), so

methodically working your way through a couple o< levels at a time should get you to the end fairly soon Hold On.

though Isn t that gomg to knock the lasting appeal on the head a bit'’ Wen no First off. the levels ARE Incky enough (lairty soon' in this case is going to be measured in weeks, not days) to provide a serious challenge, and there aie Still 120 of them Bui more importantly than that, solving a level in Lemmings 2 isn't the be-all and end-all any more. Unlike Lemmings, where you ether succeeded or tailed a level now there are varying degrees ol success Vsee. you don't have an unlimited lemming supply any more Each tribe stans oft with 60 of the little critters, and the number you save on one level is the number you stan with on the next level II you save the maximum number possible on any screen you gel a gold medal, with Sliver and bronze trophies for lesser achievements It you complete a tribe with gold medals all the way through, you get a gold talisman pece. but <f you ve sacrificed lemmings unnecessarily you'll only get a silver or bronze talisman piece. Hence, you can finish the game (your Imai talisman can be made up ol any combination ol gold, silver and bronze sections) without getting anywhere near the maximum level of success - you'll keep going back again and again trying lor that elusive all-gold talisman that really separates the game stars from the also-ran second-raters.

Lemmings 2 even makes It easy tor you to try that, too At any time «t a tribe, you can go back over levels you ve completed and try them agam ■n order to get a lew more terns through What all this means is maximum user-Inendbness without

compromising the game s difficulty, and it's lovely. I'm sick of games that treat you like a bit ol d>rt on the bottom ol their shoes - Lemmings 2 makes everything

® UPPERS The addition ot a plot end a goal works wonders, as does being able to play any one of 12 levefs al any one time. The carrying over ol lemmings means you've always got something to aim lor even alter you've finished Ihe game, and getting the ultimate-victory gold talisman will take you a very long lime Indeed.

The backgrounds are not varied by the Qame - if you want a new location you have to choose one trom the options menu, which is brill because it slops all that needless disk swapping when you just want to get on and fight (In one-player mode the locations are varied by the game). You can continue with the same characters or choose a new pair, and Ihere's a menu option which allows you to play Character vs Character, so. tor example, you can both play the Ninja character \ (and both ol you can \ laugh at each oiher s " \ silly looking crab walk)

But there s a hell ol a lot on there and they're sensibly arranged to minimise swapping, so that doesn't really count Nat having a distinct location lor each character, like S/Yldoes. costs it atmosphere points, too Lastly, It's a bit too close lor comfort sometimes - Buddhist monk with llame power, two brothers with Ihe same powers (Including llrebail-ihrowing). huge strong Russian bloke, boxer, thin token girl with spinning attack move, ate. Then again, you could just say that It makes Body Blows uil Ihe way SFTI should have bean done In the first place.

THE BOTTOM LINE

Get It. Now. Whatever you think about beat-'em-ups, get this one and you'll change your mind A hue corker ol a game, with undeniable Influences, but a leel and playability that are all Ita own. I've been waiting for this lor a long lime.

Such a simple, and some may say boring, concept is brought to Me by some awesome graphics The Walker itself boasts 81 frames of animation, so just about every conceivable head position is covered, and even though the soldiers are tiny, they Now apart most impressively in a spray ol visceral gore Also vehicles don i just vanish when you Nasi them, msiead you ve got to reduce them to

THE BOTTOM LINE

It's got no power-ups, no smart bombs, no extra bonus levels, but I just can't get enough ot It. I've never seen things explode so credibly or soldiers die to needlessly and gratuitously. Okay, so the gamapliy's simple and rapetlllve, bul It s yet to lose Its appeal, and I’ve been playing various versions ol this for months now.

This city may look healthy, but something's wrong. If you're not careful traffic jams start to occur with alarming frequency, and the centre of the city begins to break down. Your mission, should you choose to accept It. is to

So you want to be an entrepreneur Well, you need a good head tor figures because A-Train throws them at you with absolutely no apologies. Here's a few important ones to watch out for

MONET'S TOO TIGHT TO MENTION

man money maker SunOty and MicroProse's Railroad Tycoon There are su scenarios lo play through bul Ihe first is probably the best place la start Scenario the First is called New Town You load up Ihe map and across the lop nghl-hand corner runs a tram track that bnngs people and raw maienals in lo Ihe city from outside. I use the term 'city'm its loosest possible sense, because lo start off with, the fledgling New Town s just a couple at shacks

To lum New Town mlo Big, Brash and Bustling Town, and make lots of money into the bargain, you have lo build a railroad Laying the track is a sanpte, il slightly annoying process Click on where you want the route to start and extend the rails across the landscape Don't worry about planning permission - you're m charge ot the place and because you're totally evil any houses ihat happen to be m the way are automatically flattened So. the track's in place, you slap a couple ol stations at either end and then select some trams from ihe 19 passenger and freight locos available You start the whole thing running and you lose money You lose lots ol money because there aren't any people on ihe passenger trains and there aren't any goods lor the freight trams lo carry. And this is where the city-buildmg side comes in

Not only do you create ihe railroad, bul you have to construct cities to provide goods and people who will want lo use your trams The people need places lo live, places lo work, places lo shop and places lo have tun.

The more efficient your rail network is, Ihe more of Ihem you can provide and the more money you make As well as earning money from your (hopaliily] profitable railroad, you earn money tram subsidiary businesses such as apartments, lactones and resorts it's not long before you realise that all the businesses leed oil each other, and none can survive independently A-Tramis undoubledfy a complex simulation The difficulties of creeling an efficient rail network are a real, but enjoyable, headache to start off with, and once you've got your trains tunning smoothly you have lo switch your focus lo Ihe finer points of oty building and el its myriad complexities The success of each subsidiary depends on which ofher subsidiaries are nearby, so. lor example hotels do well when they're near to ski

resorts Butitdoesn t slop there. You have to remember that you're running a corporation, which means you've got to keep a keen aye on the bottom line, and if you make loo much profit in a year you'll be clobbered with income tax Throw in the slock market lor good measure and you've got one hell ol a strategy game

Its not without its flaws, however Even on the highest speed setting the game chugs along like a clapped-out steam engine, which means you often have to leave the game running for long periods before any big changes occur in your oty If you're patient then it's bearable, but there's a good chance that the slow pace couM put you oft altogether Then there's realism, which is always a thorny subject when it comes to computer games because by their very nature they're works Of Action But that doesn't mean they can't try lo be realistic A-Tram

m-r gyiTmTi Minimi

has its realistic bits, such as the bank and stock market which are only open 9-5 Monday lo Saturday II you want to borrow money or buy shares outside these limes you can't, you just gel a message saying you have lo wait until they open. This sits uneasily with your God-like ability lo pluck entire apartments blocks Irom thin air and plonk them down pretty much wherever you choose You can also switch a train ol 500 passengers Irom one line onto another. Where do all the people go

Apart form the speed issue, these are all really rather minor gripes A-Tram has lo be one ol the best strategy games around, and its open-ended nature means you never have to slop playing. You have lo care about what you're doing, but luckily A-Train gives you so much freedom to do what you want that you do start caring about Ihe cities, whether you went to or not As wth StmGry, you can just keep gang until you get boied of playing with your massively complicated computensed tram sal

• RICHARD LONGHURST

® UPPERS Potentially a never-ending game Ihat provides a stern test ol your brain power. Clear graphics In low-res mode, even better In hlgh-ras. and very litUe disk swapping even on lingle-drlve machines

® DOWNERS The music, the sound ellects and Its slow pace. Worth persevering Ihough.

THE BOTTOM LINE

Has lo be one of the best strategy games available on any computer format, despite ■peed problems. Groovy.

So Ihe game's all about gelling daddy back and just like Ihe original, you've gof to haul Chuck junior's bod tirough all manner ol obstacles >■ iXmetous honjontalty-seroling levels *Oh r-ah ' i hear the I'XMi cynically lined ol you out .nie ends m "mi sounds juft k>e Chuck

Before this gels bogged down a general discussion about the ments and

problems ol platformers as a game genre.

Junior is a miniature comic masterpiece. with goodness knows how many trames ol animation He wobbles along as he drags a huge club, yells as he swings, balances on the dub lo avoid ground attacks and throws a real tantrum every lime he loses a life, complete with tears and ground beating. All this care and attention to detail is thankfully spread over the entire cast ol characters There are sharks, surfing green dudes, and the added bonus of Mi Wiggy. whose

section lor instance the lirst level's a

slraighltorwaid platform section, with plenty ol taiing rocks and tlames. white on the second level you have to set Junior's dub on tire Why1 You just do. OkayFinally, level three has Junior frantically Ckmbing a tree as it rapidly descends nto molten lava At the top ol this there's yel another one ol the now lamous huge monsters See1 Comrc tun a plenty

As well as all these variations, there are also a lew subgames thrown m Usually these are pretty second-rate atlairs that seem to have been added because there was some space tell on Ihe <fcsk. but these are aduaiiy quite good

Wall, tha presentation ol the non-1200 varelon waa superb - lha Intro sequence and animations between levels are Impressive and tastefully dona.

HERO QUEST + VIDEOKID

There was a time when the word ‘budget’ meant ‘cheap’, ‘low cost’ or ‘economical’. And, in all honesty, it still does. Here’s this month’s round-up of games which are noticeably less expensive than so-called ‘full price’ ones.

March lor Irapa or treasure, or an attack on a monster during your go. Searching the room can reveal secret doors which are otlen essential for you to get through the quest. It you take on a monster then you have to sit back and watch as the computer deals with the battle. Suftlce to say It Involves throwing skulls and shields, and II you have mare skulls than your opponent has shields you get la clobber (and often eradicate) him.

Treasure lakes Ihe lorm ol money (which you can spend on more weapons and tools), or magic potions lor extra strength, speed, and so on. It you're playing with a wizard or an elf you're also given Ihe choice ol a lew spells at Ihe beginning ol the game, all ol which are very handy. Don't waste them, however. becauM you only get one shot with each. If you're Ihe barbarian or the dwarf you're a lot better at lighting monsters.

It’s all wonderful lun, whether you're a lantasy Ian or not. Ii manages to keep you engaged all the way through, and the quests are varied enough to prevent you getting

I bored. Criticisms - well, the later quests could be a little harder, and there are only 13 of them. Also,

It's a shame that casting spells Isn't accompanied by an animated scene - I was dying to see how the lireball spell blew away my opponent. But none of this detracts loo much from what is a very absorbing board game conversion.

This review barely needs

Introducing, except perhaps lo say that there are lour ol them. The action sport games, that Is. And they re all French.

Where do they gel these names from'* Yeah. I know that's something yogr granny always says about the latest beat combos on Top ot the Pops, but you've gat to admit, the titles at some PD programs are just plain bizarre.

As the genre goes. Crave is one ot the best looking and most feature packed examples around There is a set ot ready-designed arenas, plus an edit option where you can design your own There is an impressive range ot obstacles you can use. including mud. which slows the tank down, and oil. which makes it slip sideways, along with trees, wall, craters and a whole load more You can also decide how many shots it it take to kill your

ow. following on Irom Crave and Furmyre, you might think Oxydli a pretty datt name aa wall But In tact It doea Da In with the game, which la about opening littta poda to let out oxygen. H a all to do with some convoluted plot about allena lucking the atmosphere out ot tome planet (hey. la that a aublimlnal green meitage there ) but you Juat naed to know la that thla la a great-looking, snazzy note puzzle game

Your objective on each level la gat all the poda open almultineoualy. You do this by bouncing at them using a mouse-controlled marble. The trouble la, they come In different colours, and will dose after a few aoconda If there Isn't already a pod opan ot the same colour. In other words, If you open a rad pod you have to find the other one quickly belore the llral one closes.

Uallers are complicated by whtzzy things that'll kill you. huge ravines you could fall down, tasara which you naed lo activate and direct to blast down walls In Iron! ot unobtainable poda, bomba, remote-controlled doors, and loads ot other puzzley-type atult On the plus aide there are loads ot plck-upa to help you out, such as umbrellas and dynamite.

It's a very polished game There are level codas, ■ save game option, a timed game option, and the opportunity to turn the music oil (ah, relief). Host ot the level* era bigger than a single screen and. what's more, there are loads ol them.

Entirely Unoriginal Crap, urn Kilnfodder (OK. maybe that was a bn desperate) Furmyre. though, at leas! shows a modicum ot gameplay sensibility, with a decent difficulty curve, and it looks pretty lunky The graphcs arenf as weedy or msipid as they usually are - they re beefy, lull bodied and boldly colourful The nasties appear lo have had some thought and imagination pul into them as well But. when all is saxt and done (except it isn't because I ve got a bit more 10 say), it's still a SEUCK game, and slili scrolls relentlessly upwards It's one ol ihe better ones sure but there's never gong io be an essential SEUCK game
