SummariesEdit

VIC 6

Two good games did not really compensate for the frustration of four games that would not start, or would not work properly it they did.

QS Scramble

Quicksilva have already won themselves a good reputation for producing good arcade replicas within the limitations of the ZX81, this cassette will further that reputation.

Conflict

I enjoy this strategy game as it made me think, rather than letting the computer do all the work, as so many other new computer games do.

Borg

I found Borg an enjoyable, even compulsive, game though I was not sure — even as I pressed the space bar for what must have been a 100th time, whether I was doing so out of real enjoyment, or out of sheer frustration at being unable to get further than the second room.

Reviews

  • Ghost Town (Adventure International) Atari 8-bit, Apple II, Sorcerer, TRS-80, Video Genie - Keith Campbell - (⅛ page) (66)
    • One of my personal favourites among Adventures!
  • The Time Machine (Molimerx) TRS-80, Video Genie - Keith Campbell - (⅓ page) (66)
    • I sat down with my family, and we just managed to complete the game in one long evening sitting - but there were five of us and we are all hardened Adventurers! So this would possibly make an ideal first for someone not wanting to solve the seemingly impossible.

BBC Tipster - Ian Sinclair and John S. Sinclair - 1 ½ pages (OWL 5-6)

The BBC microcomputer is well equipped with a multitude of high resolution graphics commands. However, for the person who wants to use programs of a reasonable size it soon becomes apparent that due to the large amount of RAM taken by the graphics the length of programs becomes appreciably limited. For this reason it is of great value to be able to make use of the Teletext graphics capabilities of the machine. In this article Ian Sinclair and John S. Sinclair of Sinclair (U.K. Software) guide you through the mysteries of Teletext graphics.

Book Review - 1 page (OWL 7)

Atom, Basic Programming on the BBC Microcomputer

The Helpline - 1 page (OWL 15)

The BBC Computer Referral Service was set up to run in tandem with the television series The Computer Programme. Where the programme kindled an interest the Referral Service fuelled the fire with a rundown of local information centres and other starting points for the computer beginner. 89,000 enquiries later it is still going strong.
