FeaturesEdit

Building a Computer World - Mark Blundell - 2 pages (24-25)

It is ironic that one of mankind's most practical and logical 20th Century tools should provide so many opportunities for fantastic and historic escapism. Many computer games indulge us in our quests for myths and legends on exotic planets and more romantic eras. We asked Mark Blundell of computer moderated gaming company, Mitre Wargames, to explain how to map out computer controlled worlds and times as the fabric for a fantasy game.

Pimania - Terry Pratt - 1 page (85)

A specially commissioned £6,000 prize provides the best evidence that computer gaming has come of age. The Golden Sundial of Pi is the prize destined to grace the mantlepiece of the first person to solve an elaborate computer adventure, Pimania. TERRY PRATT tried his hand at Pimania — and from his report his mantlepiece is likely to remain bare.
