Linked reviews are available to view in full on this site.
Fun To Learn 6-12 (Unknown) (Spectrum 48K)
Overall 74% with a large redefined character used throughout.
Billy Ball Plays Catch (Stainless) (TI99/4A)
All have superb graphics, which compensate for the somewhat slow action during the game's initial stages, but things definitely "hot up" after the fourth screen.
Maths Utilities Library (Solway) (Spectrum 48K)
Fair use is made of the Spectrum's potential of music, colour and memory.
Blockbuster (APS) (Spectrum 48K)
A useful facility is that the questions can easily be altered.
Shipshapes 3 = (Argus Press) (Spectrum 48K)
Shipshapes is a game where a helicopter flying over a ship can be made to drop various shapes, depending upon which keys are pressed, on to a ship before it sails.
Spiders/Simon/Granny (CGL) (Sord M5)
These games are fun for the first few goes but would probably pall after that.
Only a very small portion of the screen is used to display the action... Very good graphics are used in the top half of the screen to show beautiful, snow-capped mountains.
Cassette File Handling (B. Jackson) (TI99/4A)
Cassette storage is impractical and rather risky, due mainly to the problem of shedding oxide and consequent drop-out.
Quite honestly, this program wouldn't even be worth publishing as a magazine listing.
Music Maker/TI Ludo/Charset 1 (PiKaDee) (TI99/4A)
Charset 1 contains character sets re-defined and their hexadecimal codes stored in DATA statements to use in your own programs.
Mr. Dig (Microdeal) (Commodore 64)
Sound and graphics are both very good... There is clearly a close resemblance between this and the arcade version.
Cassette 50 (Cascade) (Commodore 64)
Graphics and sounds would be very impressive if they were produced by a standard 1K ZX80 but as for the C64... need I say more?
Star Trooper (Melbourne House) (Commodore 64)
Quite an interesting rhythm plays when the program is waiting for you to start the game.
The Wall (Stainless) (TI99/4A)
There's certainly enough variety to keep you hooked on trying.
New Venture (Falcon Computing) (Spectrum 48K)
An interesting idea, with a PG rating - suitable for intelligent people above the age of 14.
