Dracula's Revenge (Softek) (Oric 48K)
One of the better games around for the Oric and should certainly find favour with the games player - providing he is not frightened of the dark.
Heist (Soft Spot) (BBC Model B)
Very good... Had me playing for hours.
Postman's Knock (Lizard Games) (TI99/4A)
Similar to a Ski-run-type program, but
it has sufficient additional elements to make it quite amusing.
Robot Riot (Mikro-Gen) (Spectrum 48K)
It's really just another maze game, but well presented and enjoyable.
Sheer Panic (Visions) (Spectrum 48K)
Definitely high on addictiveness, and great fun to play.
Into The Empire (Penguin) (Spectrum 16K)
The concept is good, and given an imaginative plot, the mixture of computer game and good book could be a winner.
Escape From Arkaron (Penguin) (Spectrum 16K)
All are principally in Basic and thus slow, are not error-trapped, so they can be brought to a confusing halt quite easily and are about the standard of magazine listings.
Uncle Groucho (Automata) (Spectrum 48K)
A good try but can do better.
Alien Demon/Plague (K-Tel) (Commodore Vic 20)
The two-game package is good value, but K-tel will have to improve its standards if it wants to succeed in the software jungle.
Castle Colditz/Battle Of The Toothpaste Tubes (K-Tel) (Spectrum 48K)
I've seen better games than these in magazine listings.
Quadrablitz (Stanless) (TI99/4A)
This game is not really for those who like fast action, but may suit you if you enjoy a more leisurely pace.
Knockout (Mikro-Gen) (Spectrum 48K)
This is an excellent game, simple but very good fun to play.
Snooker (Visions) (BBC Model B)
The movement of the balls is a little less fluid than I would like.
Bridge Player (CP Software) (Spectrum 48K)
A very entertaining game, but it's not true that you can abandon the game during play, as the inlay states.
UXB (Virgin Games) (Dragon 32)
It should pass an interesting evening for a moderately expert bomb disposal officer, but be warned that in your profession, careful thought is more important than a fast finger on the button.
Battleships (Stainless) (TI99/4A)
Battleships is a nicely laid out program with adequate instructions given on-screen before the start of the game.
Up Periscope (Beyond) (Dragon 32)
This is definitely a thinkers' game, but should as the makers claim "give a challenge which lasts for months not minutes".
Falcon Patrol (Virgin Games) (Commodore 64)
This is one of the best games for the C64 that I have seen.
Battle Flight (Stour Computing) (Oric 1/Oric 48K)
Generally good value, but too complicated for younger children.
Armageddon (Silversoft) (Spectrum 48K)
Highly recommended... The graphics are excellent - missiles come in fast and furious, planes, satellites and intelligent weapons abound and the explosion of your cities looks, and sounds, truly evil.
Alien Swarm/Arena (Titan) (Spectrum 16K)
To be fair, this is a good game concept... In the hands of Ultimate, Imagine or Psion it could have been superb.
Starclash (Micromega) (Spectrum 48K)
A personal vote of thanks to the suppliers for giving the reviewer an unlimited lives version - a nice business courtesy.
Bat Attack (Alligata) (Commodore 64)
I liked this game and had a job to stop playing it so I could write this review.
Martian Attack (Micro Power) (BBC Model B)
The game is well presented but with little to distinguish it.
Maths Invaders (Stell) (Acorn Electron)
Slow and boring... A great idea but poorly implemented.
Mr. T's Shape Games (Ebury) (BBC Model B)
The whole thing is boring for even young children... There are never any mismatches
Castle Spellerous (Sinclair Research) (Spectrum 48K)
Tests visual discrimination and short term memory only, not spelling.
Lunar Letters (Longman) (Spectrum 16K/48K)
An interesting program, full of colour, movement and sound. My three year old loved it!
Sums Are Fun/Taking Away For Fun (Stainless) (TI99/4A)
Two straightforward programs with two difficulty levels in each.
Adventuremania (Intrigue) (TI99/4A)
Adventuremania is not a difficult game to play. Unlike some adventures, your progress is not impeded by cryptic clues that take hours to unravel.
Zorgon's Kingdom (Romik) (Commodore Vic 20)
It's one of the best games for the Vic-20 on release at present.
The Kingdom Of Klein (Epic) (BBC Model B)
A game for the experienced adventurer and not for the beginner at all.
Dark Lore (8th Day) (Spectrum 48K)
Good intentions but uninspired presentation... The speed of execution was annoyingly slow.
The Hobbit (Melbourne House) (Oric 48K)
A superb adventure... You will be captivated, elated, frustrated but never bored.
Volcanic Planet (Thorn EMI) (Spectrum 48K)
The only snag with this was dragging myself away from the computer!
Alien Break-In (Romik) (BBC Model B)
The speed of the ships is impressive, and the sound is good too.
Dancing Monster (Commodore) (Commodore 64)
Looks like a great party game.
Super Meteors (Softek) (Oric 48K)
The game has a good start... but has not been properly finished.
Snooker (Visions) (Commodore 64)
A load of balls - my thoughts exactly. There's nothing much going in this game's favour, because it is so inaccurate.
U.F.O. (Christine Computing) (TI99/4A)
The game is great fun and addictive to play.
