Rainy Day

Ray the Ed. has just dropped off a load of cassettes for me to review. Sorry wife, I shall have to stop the decorating and press on with these (Heehee).

First of these is Rainy Day, nothing to do with rain but a compendium of games to play when it's raining. If you're rich you can use your Currah speech unit and the program is compatible with a number of joystick interfaces.

There are three games which you can play. Game 1 is called 'puzzle unit', where you can choose one of ten pictures which are jumbled up. Then, with the aid of the cursor, you have to put them back into their original form.

Game 2, called 'Codebreaker', is based on the Mastermind game. Instead of colours though, they use numbers which makes it more difficult. You have to break the code within fifteen attempts and if you are successful a safe door will open.

Game 3 on the tape is not really a game at all but a reaction test. A ball is dropped from the top of the screen into a glass at the bottom of the screen and you have to hit a key before it reaches there. Comments are made on your ability.

Not a bad tape for £2.99 which I think has been aimed at the 10-16 age group. (To tell you the truth I couldn't do the pictures.) Spectrum 48K only.
