Linked articles are available to view in full on this site.
Beebul (Scorpio Gamesworld) (Spectrum 48K)
It may never become the talking point of computer buffs, but will certainly go down well with the younger members of the family as it's not too difficult.
Fahrenheit 3000 (Softstone Limited) (Spectrum 48K)
Graphics are reasonable... There is also a fixed time limit after which the game ends in a suitably cataclysmic manner.
Smash And Grab (Superior) (Acorn Electron)
I expect this game will have you rolling with laughter. I certainly did. Ha ha ha. Ha.
Zany Kong Junior (Superior) (Acorn Electron)
This stands out from the crowd. The graphics are in four colours and this makes the game cartoon-like.
Loderunner (Software Projects) (Spectrum 48K/128K)
There must be months of enjoyment here. However, the excellent editing facilities are barely mentioned, so you'll struggle until you get the hang of them!
The Music System (Island Logic) (BBC Model B)
Highly commended... An easy program to use, versatile in its application allowing a child to experiment and a composer to give free range to his imagination.
Breden's Basic (Visions) (Commodore 64)
Breden's Basic has some good features but these are cancelled out by about half of the commands being unnecessary and serving no real purpose.
Gold Digger (Firebird) (BBC Model B)
Not just a challenge, a fight against the odds... If it could be slowed down or had a joystick option it might prove a winner.
Space Pilot (Superior) (BBC Model B)
The professional presentation coupled with the incredible addictiveness makes Space Pilot a must for all shoot-'em-up fans.
Rally Driver (Hill MacGibbon) (Spectrum 48K)
Tricky, addictive and challenging... Full marks but why the weedy sound?
Hit-Man (Scorpio Gamesworld) (Spectrum 48K)
The best value for money I've ever seen, publishers of expensive stuff could learn from this. Highly recommended.
Cavern Commander (Scorpio Gamesworld) (Atari 400)
Graphics are good, as are the sound effects... Go ahead and try this, at this price you cannot lose.
Overdrive (Superior) (Acorn Electron)
The game is fast, responsive and easy to learn, having said all that there are other versions that have curves and these make the whole process much more interesting for the driver.
Cyclone (Vortex) (Spectrum 48K)
Stunning... The best game I've seen in months.
Strontium Dog: The Killing (Quicksilva) (Spectrum 48K)
The structure is very similar to Atic Atac, colourful border round the screen enclosing one 'room' with exits out, blind alleys and so on.
Erbert (Microbyte) (BBC Model B)
Nevertheless, anyone who likes playing Q*Bert will like Er*Bert with its extra features.
Cluedo (Leisure Genius) (Commodore 64)
Up to six people can play at once. This makes it ideal to amuse the family.
Star Warp (Superior) (BBC Model B)
If it hadn't been done several times before I might enthuse but this is far too late to make any impact at all.
Jack And The Beanstalk (Superior) (BBC Model B)
A great game for all the family... The interesting sound adds to the enjoyment too.
Airlift (Superior) (BBC Model B)
Graphically good, but I expected a little more from the writer of Overdrive.
Devils Causeway (KayDee) (BBC Model B)
An interesting idea that can be fun but is ludicrously overpriced. For this sort of money, you could expect a full machine code game.
Galactic Patrol (Warlock) (BBC Model B)
Doesn't have that addictive quality... I expect that from a top flight game today.
Ewgeebez (Software Projects) (BBC Model B)
It may not be the most incredibly original and mind-shatteringly complex game ever devised for a home computer, but it is very good fun.
Ledgeman (Software Projects) (BBC Model B)
A very enjoyable Manic Miner derivative at a very low price... I did find that some of the screens were a little too hard.
Steve Davis Snooker (CDS Microsystems) (Spectrum 48K)
Very classy, but rather overpriced.
Acid Drops (Firebird) (BBC Model B)
I liked it... Perhaps a little too difficult, but good value.
Vampire Killer (Scorpio Gamesworld) (Spectrum 48K)
All in all quite good, better than many magazine listings. Don't expect Jet Set Willy though.
Mineshaft (Durell) (BBC/Electron)
One of the most enjoyable platform and ladders type games for the Beeb.
Crypt Capers (Software Projects) (BBC Model B)
Crypt Capers is recommended. An addictive game with lasting interest, sold at an incredibly low price.
Birdstrike (Firebird) (Acorn Electron)
All the action is fast and smooth providing a game of limited scope but well-executed.
Duck (Firebird) (BBC Model B)
An amusing and quite original interpretation of an old theme.
Savage Pond (Starcade) (BBC/Electron)
A good, instructive game.
Jet Boat (Software Invasion) (BBC Model B)
Maybe some people would like to buy it just to see the graphics but for the rest, Jet Boat can't be recommended.
The Nomad Of Time (Mosaic) (Commodore 64)
I would not rate the game very highly because its slow speed makes it unplayable.
Yacht Race (Hill MacGibbon) (Spectrum 48K)
First class quality... With an excellent manual and automatic save to Microdrive.
3D Grand Prix (Software Invasion) (BBC Model B)
This is the best version of Grand Prix as far as graphics are concerned but way behind the official version by Atarisoft when it comes to playability.
Salvage (Sumlock Microware) (Commodore 64)
Quite a lot of thought and effort went into solving this game one evening... I would recommend it to anyone at all who likes adventures.
Here And There With The Mr. Men (Mirrorsoft) (BBC/Electron)
Good value for money... Four games for the price of one.
Frantic Fingers (Power) (BBC Model B)
This is not just too highly-priced... similar programs to it have actually been published in magazines before.
Pitman Typing Tutor (Pitmansoft) (BBC Model B)
Although this is rather expensive, it has been carefully designed and should prove to be useful to those determined to become better typists.
Winning Games On The ZX Spectrum (Ellis Horwood) (Spectrum 48K)
A large library of different games at low individual costs: for me, the cost doesn't compensate for the lack of sophistication.
