Vicmen

Vicmen is an excellent version of the arcade game Puckman and will give hours of entertainment.

Games Pack 11

A good value for money games cassette from Acornsoft. Three very polished pieces of software. A shame that the programs did not have any skill and variation options to choose from, as that would certainly increase the audience range

Breakout

I appreciate that the version was rushed out to be the first available software for the machine, but simple unoriginal games need the most thought and care with presentation. Please try again.

Comments

Centipede

A very professional game and well worth the £4.95 It costs.

QS Asteroids

This addictive game is certainly worth spending £5.50 on.

Football Manager

I came to review this game fresh from writing C&VG's World Cup Manager (which would make the reviewer Terry Allen) and was expecting a little more. Football fans will enjoy it and the game is good as far as it goes but I would have welcomed the opportunity of having more decisions.
