SummariesEdit

Battle of Britain

Battle of Britain may appeal to the keen wargamer but it will be of little interest to the average ZX81 user, due mainly to the lack of graphics and the fact that the game must be followed on a map. It is difficult to develop a good strategy, and the game generally lacks realism.

Murder at Awesome Hall

The game is not visually exciting and rapidly becomes boring.

Atom Adventures

Acornsoft's Adventure costs £11.50, which could be spent on a more worthwhile game.

Mouskattack

This game is very difficult as well as addictive making each game a constant challenge.

Shockwave

One criticism is that the controls are not explained anywhere in the program or on the sheet which comes with the program — otherwise very addictive.

AdventureEdit

Adventure (Program Power) Atom - Keith Campbell - ¼ page (73)

The games speed of execution was disappointing but this was more than compensated for by the game's chatty manner and novel turn of phrase.
