PCW Games Collection
By Century
Acorn Electron

Published in Home Computing Weekly #92

If I was allowed to judge the Computer Users Stocking Filler Of The Year award, I would give it to this package of programs. I cannot get over the value for money aspect: 20 games for under £5. That's what I call value. The real purpose of the collection is to stop you gelling callouses on your fingers, for this is the cassette of the book with the same name.

The collection is made up of games previously published by PCW in their program section and there is a fair variety to choose from.

There are strategy games like Black Hole and action games like Lander. Some are old standards but several are new and all worth a look.

The book contains a run-down of the programming techniques used and this would be useful if you wanted to learn from the games.

There are several differences between the two collections, Electron and BBC but for the most part they are the same. All are written in Basic and offer the opportunity for you to modify them to your personal desire. An outstanding collection at just 25p a game.
