Impressive of the Tot - although It doesn't look at

The C64 incarnoflon looks alright, but locks the 
polish of other games such as Armaiytv. Still, it's Q 
reosonable enough rendition of fhe arcade game to 
warrant looking out tor. 

Work Is well underway for fhe Amstrad version, 
which should be more colourful than the Spectrum

R-Type is definitely the hottest shoot 'em up same 
<jf the last fcjuple of years. It has fiiood the it'st f)f 
time - passing through the phase of being the 'hit 
CDin-op' of the momenl to real, lasting cult status. 

Many a coin-op fan - including a few who work 
on this magazitxt" - will tell you that they are happy 
tu put a few bob in the latest machines but they

Quite how many folk ore 
Into off road racing in Ihis 
fiftCk of the woods is a bif Of 

mystery to me, so it is 
possible that 4x4 Oft-Road 
f^QCing wiW disappear 

! dowri thot some dumper of 
1 disinteie^i as the Shirley 
iMuJdfhingie drog racing 
I game of a tew morths ogo 

I've always been ol ihe 
I mind thol onythmg thai 
I conspicuously foi Is fo 

show ony screen stiots on 

ihe packaging ties fo have 

a thing or two to hide 

onywoy 
In the event, however, it's 

not too much ot o horror 
I story, justo bit uninspired. 

Takmg iis cue from those 
I skateboarding gomes, it 

allows you tifst to customise 
[your truck with tyres, 

1 winches, extra fuel and 
Other add on bits before 
setting out on the 

I "toughest, roughest 
I courses" in the world, 
Thts picking and choosing 
Ipecif Icotions is all very 
wftll, and makes for a nice 
extra to a gome, but to be 
bothered doing if. the thing 
real ly has to be special in 
I the first place. 

Right, terrain picked, 
ond difficulty level 
selected (you get to chose 
from four} and its time to 
chose your truc1( Each 
comes with horsepower, 
weight, and durability 
specifications, but it must 
be said, looks remarkably 
hke the rest (especially 
Irom the rear} ond performs 
not too disstmilariy, 

AM IS well ond good so 
tar. unless you gef 
■".'ioyed at the paintuify 
A selection process 
I which involves some duff 
punter sauntering up and 
down outside the shop 
I front Then - you've 
guessed it - it's aireody 
I lime to turn the disk over 
and load the roce ifself 
Quite how cassette owners 
could ever stand it I don't 
know. 

As you can see from the 
screenshots. the roce itsell 
Is not at all ctissimllor fo an 
inferior Buggy Boy There 
ore sticks, piles of mud ond 
dropped spore tyres to 
ovoid or jump over, and 
though It costs time, going 
up on hA^o wheels is both 
easy and fun Big rocks 
wipe you out whether you 




Choosffig yovr ttuck 




drive a little Katana or a 
hardy Highlander. Qf\ti 
various Items bounce out 
of the wreckage including 
the driver and O little dog. 
The moin difference from 
other driving gomes iis thot 
every so often big potches 
of mud oppear, totally 
obscurmg your path the 
idea IS to drive your AtA 
through, and while 
obviously ifs much easier if 
you've thought fo buy d 
winch to assist you, it is 
possible to rocic your way 
out witti the fire button in 
only a few seconds. This 
can damage your rig 

▼ Good plm for Kai^aiakil 



though, as can various 
colflsions you might make 
happen io make, which 
takes you fo a domage 
screen Here you can 
repair the fawff - an easy 
task when youve brought 
the right bits, but you lose 
endurance if you [ury-rig it 
There are check pomls to 
help you pace yourself 
against your opponents 
who you come across 
occQSiortolly, and o 
"Doombuggv to avoid, 
which is some homocidal 
maniac who tries to lorce 
you off the rood. To be 
avoided! 




fine ideo for a game 
undermined by poor ond 
rushed looking 
programming. The 
strategy elements help 
odd something to what 
would otherwise be a 
pretty basic sort of race, 
but the quality of the spriifes 
and bockgrounds. and the 
very bosic scrolling, make 
it very difficult to 
recommend. The trucks 
slide all over the place, 
and often appeor to be 
woiking OS each wheel 
Jolts up and down sn turn in 
fmifofior^ of suspension! 

It's o pity, because Tm o 
big fan of 4x4s, and would 
much rother play a good 
gome based around them 
than, for e sample, the 
awluf Roadblasters.

don't know whar i! ts aboui 
the Atan ST and the Amigo 
but most ot the 
programmers coding 
awoy on their 16 bil dfeam 
machmes seem 
determined to produce 
gomes wllti solid flKed 3D 
grophics. 

First there was StargHdet 
//, Ihenf/rtelortheST, 
Damodes looks as if it will 
go down this route, tmoge 
Works is polishing up 
fnlerphase^OT launch neict 
year and now Electronic 
Arts enters the arena with o 
solid tilled gizmo called 
Power Drome. 

Ihere is rvolhmg 
particulorfv wrong with 
tinis, Most of the games 
mentioned above are. or 
look OS if fhev wil'i be, 
brJHiant. It's ^ust that solid 
filled 3D graphics wos just 
one ot the things we were 
promised by ihe coders 
when tiie ST and the Amiga 
tirst arrived on the scene 
and thev were were alt 
drooling over their 
capabilities. We were otso 



promised digitised 
speech, sampled sounds, 
multl tasking, and a host of 
other things 

I om not being funny or 
anything - but we 
honestiv dont need too 
much more solid tilled 3D 
"Qosl^ whot a tost routine", 
stole ot the art" "really 
shows what a 16 bit 
machine can do" type of 
thiinking Time tor a bit of 
origmolity Tn'thinks. 

Now that I've got that off 
my chest, I'll tell you obout 
Powef Drome - ond if 
reolly IS quite good. 

You enter a future world 
grond prix. Not rac I r>g cors 
but sleek looking hover 
lets The first thing thoi 
strikes vou ^^ '^^e quality of 
the graphiiCi Programmer 
Nick Powe!) hos done a 
superb job of the racing 
frocks. Typhoori jets, and 
pit stops 

Using o mouse or joystick 
you have to riegoiiofe the 
hwisting corridors, funnels, 
bridges ot Pow&r Drome as 
you seek to secure the 
Cyberneute Trophy. 

The chompionship is 
spread over six races on six 
different planets - oil with 
different atmospheric 
conditions Your fuel and 
ship equipment has to 
modified accordingly. 

Scenario and ship 
customising screens apart 
this game is really about 
flight control and racing. 




It really is quite ditticult to 
fly tne ship. It will take you a 
good deol of practice - 
fiiying in proctice mode 
with the altitude control on 
auto pilot. This will enable 
you to learn how to bank 
and take corners Only 
when you hove mosierd 
this can you sfort 1o 
squeeze the occele rotor 
ond stort to dip and climb 

The ditticultv ot control is 
not a flow, (t IS tough 
because you have o great 
deal of control over the 




Rtady to foemf 



ship and fh© response on 
mouse or Joystick is highly 
sensitive, 

t preferred to use the 
Joystick but ihts does irtoke 
ihfe even more difficult 
when you need an extro 
hond lo cut the engines 

Approaciiing an op«fiiftg and do tutpia 






n 








oncl imp f"i-'", other 
monoeuvres which require 
/ou to lap cefiofn keys on 
the computer 

Anolher slighr gripe Is 
Ihal the gome con appear 
less like a race ond more 
like a &0I0 fitghi against the 
clock. This impression is 
creoied bv the tad (hoi 
there are only tour other 
rocers out there - ond 



* ^^ Opponent 

some of the tracks ore 
massive. You cori quite 
often lose the other pilots 
hght ot the t>eQinning of 
the roce if you ore a bit 
tosly - or more often ihan 
not they wM1 lose you ond 
gjimpse them every so 
often as they lop you. 

A roce ends when o pilot 
compJetes the ^et number 
of laps. The roce may end 
for you sooner than this 
thouQh if your ship 
becomes too badly 
domaged and you cannot 
makd it bac^ for repair. 



The ship sustains 
damoge malrvJy by 
croshmg into Ihe walls of 
' the tracks or by colliding 
With other Typhoon s 

PCwef Drome IS lull of 
neal grophiCOl trills. You 
discover more and more of 
them as you ploy. Most 
impressive ol these is the 
bit in the pits as the 
damaged wings and 
engines are pulled Owov 
from the Typhoon and 
reploced by new ones It's 
off corned out by pressing 
buflons on ihe keyboard to 
moke the repair droid do 
his work. 

There is also some 
stunning forked lightning 
on one of the planets and a 
graphical touch was the 
shadow of other Typhoons 
passing ocross the ground 
atter my croff hod nose 
dived, 

Sound effects ore well 
implemented Nice wind 
sounds, thunderclaps, and 
whooshing of Typhoons os 
they approach and 
disappear into the 
distance. 

This IS one ol EA's first 
home produced games. II 
hos taken a long time to 
produce - and the other 
versions will toke still 
longer - but is a quality 
piece ot software. 

It locks the depth of 
game ptoy of something 
like Corti0f Command 01 



Capfoin e/ood but then it is 
easier to get in to (apart 
trom the iJtght controt) and 
has a good story line and 
eiftremely thorough 
manual 

The bottom line (or Power \ 
Drome IS that it is a good 3D 
sfyJe racing game for the ST 
and Amiga and as there 
aren t mony games 
oroundthot tit this 
description f can 
recommend if thoroughly. 
You won't be disappointed 
It you fork out for it.

to the original PocMcrn in 
the respect thot the player 
guides Poc around o maie

ovoidina contact with 
ghosts. However, Instead of 
a 2D static viewpoint, the

ability to jump - useM.

con see you getllng pretty

Still, how has the 64

The best way to describe it 
is a cross between Mifk

The action is presented 
)n 3D, with the tower 
rotating and scrodsng

screen os he moves up ond 
around. The effect tS 
Iremendous. 



weil'Oimed bubble. 

Just Io make nn oners 
worse, each tower is 
ployed under o strict time 
limit, and it Ihis expires 
before the alien enters tihe 
door ot the top ol the tower, 
onolher life IS lost. 

It the door is entered, the 
rower is razed lo the 
ground and Ihe olien 
mokes liis way to the next 
one by means ot a bonus 
screen where a 
mini-submarine is driven 
under the horizontoHy 
scrolling sea Fish drift on 
trom the right ond ore shot 
and collected to ommoss 
©ictro time for the 
forthcoming level - which 
comes in very useful. 

N€iDUfus 15 simply 
brilliant. It's crystal cieor 
objectives and 
unpretentious go me ploy 
conspire to provide one ot 
the most pi^oyobfe and 
chollenging 





same ttme. and tne spntes 
ore excellent. 

There ore some unusiiol 
sampled sitor sounds 
heralding the beginning of 
screen and the end of o 
gome, end the sound 
ettects are pretty good. The 
title screen music is also 
good, with the Amiga 
version having the «dge 
over the Slightly tinnv ST 
tune

lorge dent in the ftdng 
cabinet. And still 1 keep 
going back to it. 

The $-bi1 versions of 
Nebuti}shQ0 similar effects 
when they were released 
fowords the end of last 
yeor. but now it has been 
feteosed in l^b<t lorm. 
complete with vastly 
improved graphics, better 
sound and sixteen towers 
- the original eight thot 
appeared m the first 
versions, ond eight new 
and even more torturous 
ones! 

For those who missed out. 
and you really did miss out. 
Nebuhs is a plottorm 
game - oibeit o stronge 
one. The objective Is to 
guide a little green olien to 
ihe lop ot a series of 
conslructions that tower 
Oui ot Ihe sea by 
negotiating the steps that 
fun around the outisde ot 



OS everything 
.iioves in full perspective 
OS tne tower scrolls 

The route to the top ol o 
tower lis a very preconous 
one, and every step is 
fraught with ho^ords Not 
only to some platforms 
disoppear when the alien 
steps on them, but there 
ore olso sSippery tloors to 
ovoid Immovobie blocks 
sometimes bar the woy, 
but these ore easily 
desiroyed by blowing a 
bubble at them, 

Sometimes gops in the 
platforms are 
encountered, but can 
usually be crossed by 
leaping the chasm, and 
there ore olso doors which 
ore entered to tal<e the 
alien to the other side of 
the tower - although these 
occosionoiiy leod to 
donger. 

Robotic guards ore in 
abundance and tollow set 
patterns Some move up 
and down, while others 
circle the tower. Flying 
obiects emerge from the 
sides of the screen ond 
travel across the playing 
Oreo, and bouncing balls 
occasionally appear, 
although these ore 
disposed of with a 



programs 
around. The bolonce 
between trustrotion and 
addiction is perfect, 
oflowing vou Io progress a 
little further with every 
gome. 

Supporting the 
gome ploy ore some 
tremendous grophics. The 
use of colour is superb - 
I've never seen so many 
colours on-screen at the

Whether or noi you are for I he 
postal strike or again i^l il, one

drastically affecied ihc Play Ry 
Mail hobby. Matiy f + VG

involved in PUM so v^e askt'd 
Wayne id i^ontaci the majoi 
PBM companies to check our 
whal is happening and how 
they are coping. Ifere is his 
special reporl. 

No PBM'er, be il cc»mpan:y 
or player, liVcs a postal strike. 
It is the one thing that t'hrow^ 
the whole hobby into utter 

,1 '- .md confusion- A> ! 
Miiu' ;i ^ttlemcnt haii 
suppcivedly been ironed 'Oul, 
but tt still seems very dubious 
whether ihe whole matter has 
been totally revived. All in all 
it i% goinij to be a leting time 
for many ol the smaller PBM 
..nil panics, aA they depend on 
Ihc regular cash How that their 
game generates to survive. I 
hj^oiild not be surprised to find 
ihal after ihe:strikea couple of 
the smaller companies hase 
folded. 

The larger PBM companies 
have the experience and ihc 
financial re^tource^lo weather 
the strike, htit even they will 
1ind tife dJtTiculi the longer the 
strike conIinue^, 

Kcs in t ritppcT. boss of KJC 
Games, has had to pay off 
mas\ of his staff for the 
djration of the strike, as they 
have processed all the 
computer moderated turns, 
avaibhlcand have no more 
work to do, A skeleton staff 
hasx been retained to process 
any turns that are telephoned 
in and to program KJC's new 
projects. They can't even posi 
out the backlog of turns that 
they have dealt with a;* I he post 
boses are sealed. Basically, 
because all of their gaines are 
computer moderated, ihcy 
have come to a virtual 
siandsitIL However, they are 
rfjds to resume v/ork at a 
inomenr* notiife. 

Sloth Enterprises' Simon 
Letts has confirmed that they 
too have also dealt with any 
backlog of turn» they m;iy have 
had. They have retained Alt 
their staff and are tii^sdy 
engaged in ncvl^u''^^rrv, game

About it months agti 1 ariunged 
for a playfest of all Rhann 
Gamw' products. This playTcsi 
was carried out by a stnaii 
handpicled group of C + VG 
readers which has been 
reporting to me on a regular 
basis. Here is the group's 
verdict . 

Khann's major game is Epic 
III - The Kinfts Came. It is a 
totally computer modcfaied. 
open ended, it word and 
sorcery game, where progress 
b made by strategic play, A 
player who is good at the 
diplomatic side of PBM will do 
well here. The game is of 
average complexity initially, 
biit progresses into a more 
complicated mode as the game 
advances. The turn fee is £2.00 
for basic turns and il can 
increase depending on ihe »ixe 
of your kingdom. 

When you start off, you 
have to chooK a leader for 
your small army. This teader 
can be one of six character 
types. Warlord, Necromancer, 
W'i/ard, Arcli Priest, Merchant 
Prince and Nomad Clan Chief. 
-Ml have ditferent. but 
halanced. statistics. You then 
have to make several choices 
itictuding the wJcciiott of your 
homeland and the elecnon of 
secondary leaders. Once this is 
done, it is up to you to conquer 

,^ JL ji the world, using vour leader's. 

rH-,nofv*.^Maf,vtities. 



The Laboratory's Paul 
Borretson said: ".\ll wat still 
well at ihc I ab. Wc are 
working on cvnnputer 
upgrades, game catenations and 
generally picking up on thingi 
thai should have been done a 
white ago. 

Rhann right hand man, 
Steve Upton, is re-writing his 
newly acquired game Tr^fes of 
Crane, another ex Mitre game, 
and generally "doing things he 
should have already done. ' ' 

Thai*.s how things stand with 



The game has many aspects, 
isome of which are discovered 
as you go along. There are your 
personal henchmen, who ore 
used for spying and 
assasiiinaiion,^ magic iiems and 
ariif^cts that can b? l-hIkt j 
htessin[! or a curse tts v,<njr 
forces, and troops who will 
tibey yi^ur e\ ery command if 
ymt li;uo kept their moral high

Rhann have worked hard on

from Australia ;ind they hjvc 
added some RKc lit lie touches.

moment. If iheie are any radical All battle reports .y< free, as

Th« game ccriaini)'' 
impre-.M.'d C * VC* playw^lcri 
Stev« Smith tOldham^and 
Sinclair Scon f Holland}. Steve 
called t'pii' "The best 
computer moderated PBM 1 
: .! - e ever played", and Sinclair 

J: "I can heartily 

L^mmcnd the game tf> any 
prospecti'ie empire builders, 
since II U noT simply a gamt, 
but ii rcai |>ower struggle/' 

Overall, the playicstet* 
really crijoycd I-pic ^inil the 
above two comments are 
rcpre^ntative of the general 
opinion. In faci [ did not 
rtccive tJiic bad report about it 
from oser 20 playteslcr?*, 

Ecdpse is by Ahann. [ had a 
whole game set up for C + VG 
tiiiden, which m^ani thai 20 
poapk could play fof nought. 
The players found that ttiipse 
h a fame of space evploration 
and conquest, which is haved 
around a vtar <^y<!tem that 
compromiiics of anyihin; 
between ISO to 220 stars. The 
aim ts to conquer tuo thirds of 
the iyitem cither on your own 
or with an allianwc t:o{i\iMing 
of several players. 

tDnccugain ihcgumc i* 
completely computet 
moderated, but thi» time it haii 
Htcd deadlines'- This mean^ 
that you have to get your turn 
detaik lo Rhann by a certain 
date or your organisation will 
suffer the consequences. 
Before you begin, you must 
chooic one of siss races: 
Human, Laariin, ('ii.sarti, 
Wcsan, Sagori or Arinne. Each 
ha^ differing s;h;iriicteri,viici, 
but as in t'pic ihey are 
b:ilariccd out so there 
is no one real advantage. 

The rukbook i*^ fairly 
comple.v, and mvolves a bit of 
number crunching, bui you 
soon eet used to if jfter A few 
reads. Hvcryihmg is covered 
from space Hccti aod armies to 
computer controlled forces. 
Filling tiic turn sheet in is a 
simple affair, with the turn 



price depending on the number 
of actions performed. 

The pkytc*icrs tht^ught that 
I he game wai OK , but suffered 
as a res Lift of a few annoying 
quirii^. Ni^el Parsons, Caxdtff, 
found that "somcofniy orders 
were in COT reel t\ nnputiedand 
thisfwined siMMi ,,ii nwiurn*" 



interested in being amonpst the 
first players in the re-launch, 
all >'ou have to do is send i\.W 
to cover P + P and yoit -.li 1 1 1 iicl 
a free rute book, st«n up jh liK 
new game and a free turn W.]

(!>iiLLt)mmptoni said that *'ihe 
primer ribbon jumped !»eclions 
at I he end of the page, prsitling 
things whcTC they 'vhimldrt't 
have been." However, Kes 
went on to iay that if 'kliaJiil 
could get their act togei tier, the 
game prospcci'4 look cMdlent 
overalt" 

I have alv*.i!i s found Rhann 
ready to ttsiieu, and as wc speak 
Thc> ;iTi' ovcthauling Eclipse, 
so \Uj\ it wsll be a quicker, 
moj^e detailed gantc. Who sayft 
nobody listens to playteiiefs?

Merlins Kingdom has come 
up wiiH a new concept in PBM 
(t h;is <<.taried a 
horfttr/ detective game, set 
around a mythas similar to the 
cult Role Playing Game "CaU 
Of l.thulhu". They claim to 
have combined "serious 
roleplaying with some 
humorous aspects," which 
.nuld make it very 
entertaining. PUycts can 
encounter any aspect oflbe 
unknown from magicians to 
spiders and v umpires and 
voodoo, Players may choose up 
lo four character types to help 
tfit:rn in their adsentures- The? 
Iiuild up ihcjr chaTaciers skill 
.IV ihev pri^gidks utid their 
object is to become "Master Of 
E ear.*" There is a targe problem 
'vcilving element to t he game 
.tnd it w ilt appeal to people 
*«.ho enjoy a "thinking" game 
r^it her than a "combat" game. 

Htart up and rulebook ci>^t-. 
fSlKl, whilst turns cost £1-^(1 
each, .All cheques. P '0*s 
should be made payable to 
\terlins Kingdom and sent via 
t" + VG with proof of 
purchase. 

What with the football 
season ju^l starting (as 1 « rite), 
it should be topical to mention 
(JAD Games. SotT'Pr 
Suptvtfio s. This is a game 
where you ptay the pan of a 
nianager of a ficticious 
football team in one of two 
different leagues, which 
consist of international club 
teams. 

You have to ensute all the 
ups and downs of football 
lactuding transfers, team 
I or mat ions, tactics, 
sponsorship deals, coaching, 
you I It team players, 
physioihcrapisls and trmncts. 
international country fixtures 
af$s> feature. 

So, if there are any buddiiiE 
Tony Coitecs out there, all 
you have to do is send me an 
s.a.c. and [ will arrange for a 
free rulebook to he sent to you 
with GAD's compliments.

help them ^ock in time (or 
Steve Meretsky's 
revetoiions about the 
history o1 the Great 
Underground Empire, in 
fheforthcofTiing preQuel, 
Zork Zero! Bjt Andrew 
wants to be there, too! 
What use is Ihe Queen 
PSotypOs's magic mirror, 
and where should he 
Inscribe the glyph otter 
causing a volcanic 
eruption? 

The Shadowgote 
diologue continues this 
month, with Matthew Hill ot 
Brighton, coming up with 
some more hints^ ond, 
would you believe, some 
more questions? First, 
though, he has a 
complaint: "th tho 



September issue you said 
thot my name wos 
Shadowgate. 

Untorlunately. tmportctnt 
though I om, I have not had 
a gdrne nomed after met" 
Apologies, Matthew. lhe$e 
Ihlogs do hoppen from 
lime to time! 

"Shodowgate' Hill's tips 
will be found in the clues 
section, Meanwhile, he 
asks: "How do you open 
the door in the well room? 
Are the blue hairs growing 
on my ho nds significant?" 
And there's this poor lady 
chained up in the lower; 
too. "How do you get the 
object from her?' asks Alan 
Wilson ot Folkirk. more 
concerned oboul himself 
than the unfoffunate 
woman, "and whot do you 
about the snake sfatue 
across the bridge?" 

Three questions in a row, 
and 1 couldn't answer orve 



of them! They come frorn 
Kevin Murphy ot Klrkcoidy- 
He can't kill ihe 
pterodactyl in Temple Ot 
Terror, he keeps breoking 
his leg trying lo get into the 
ritt in Frankenstein, and he 
can'1 gel past the guards 
ofter rescuing Twof lower in 
Cotouf Of Magic . Who con 
hit the jackpot? 

Some general help is 
sought by Poul 
Whittmgham of Wirrol. He 
hos only been, oble to 
obtain two stolemenis, the 
ballistics report, and 
autopsy, in The Sydney 
Atfaif, ond can get no

The seconid round of our 
wiriner Stays On contest was 
to be held, at arguably one of 
the most frenetic times of an 
always busy show; the 
dreaded Saturday lunchtime! 

Cor^testants were a bundle 
of more or less local lads, 
though on the day only three 
challengers could make tt. 
Though a fair few less than 
tha initial challenge ii made 
for far more managable 
numbers, and could well be 



First round champ 

Justin came with the 

crowds to the PC Show. On 

a selection ot PC Engine and Arcade 

games, it was lime to see if he could keep 

up his winning streak . . , 



ThiswasGafaga'BB - a 
combination of glorious 
graphics and simple shoot 
'em up gamepiay which we 
scarcely thought would 
provoke any upsets. This was 
not be, however, as Kojo, who 
had ad m lilted ly looked very 
strong in the practice bouts, 
surged mlo the lead, leaving 
Justin trailing by nearly 
1 5,D00 pomis in third place 
Previous Winner stays on 
contestants like Neil White 
and arch' rival Jor^athan 
Wood who had showed up SA 
Earl's Court lo watch the tun 
hed predicted an easy victory 
for Justin, but this was clearly 
r>ot going to be the case. 



the way we'll n/n Ihings in The 
future when Winner Stays On 
takes to the road. 

Paul GailsgheiT came up 
with a mate from Bromley in 
Kent, and both immediately 
demanded a law ""words" 
with Justin, because 'we're 
twth Amiga owners, arKJ in 
the magazme he said all 
Amiga owners are 
dickheads!" With Kojo 
El li mall from north London, 
and Martin Manley from 
Hayes m Middlesex, alt

So you wont to be o boxer, 
eJif WeJI, the Icey lo iucc«ss 
lies in Finding your

one of the PuncjHOu//^ borers 
has o porticulor weokness, 
wfiich, when discovered, con 
gjve Little Mpc (the play«r) o 
6ig advanioge. The olher 
thing is lo always woich yoor 
opponent so you know 
«xoctly what fve't doing, 
otherwise f^e nroy surprise 
you with o niighty punch. 

The first opp^ori enf ti poor 
otd Gloss Joe, a very weak 
boxer who is easily beoien 
with repeated punches. 
Wofch out for his big punch, 
wKnoci twt PittOA Hmdat 




then dodge left when he hits, 
and follow throve h wiih a 
series of foce and body 
blows. As *oon as you gel a 
slor, use your powerful 
uppercut io floor himi 

Next comes Von Koiser, a 
much more difficult opponent. 
When his trousefs flash, 
dodge right when he punches, 
and if he crouches, sway iefl 
and follow up with face 
punches. If possible, use on 
uppercut to floor him. 

Piston Hondo is a loirly 
fomidoble opponent — if you 
don't know hi; cKorocteristlcs. 
When he twitches his 
eyebrows he's about to do o 




A King Hippo. 

he'll ottock witho big right 
hook. Dodge this and 
counter-attack with repealed 
left- rig hi blows ond keep 
going until you Floor Him, 
When he geti up he'll ihfow 
onotfijir right punch; dodge 
loft ond use the one-two 
technique again, and ogoin if 
he monoges to stagger io his 
feet a thif d rime I 

Now conws fhe first if the 
reol tough guys: King Hippo. 
He blocks all your punches, 
and seems invincible " until 
you punch him when he's got 
hit moutjri open. This stuns nim 
momentarily, ond he exposes 
Hii obese Witlioms-like 
stomoch, ollowing you to 
attack with o jeries of body 
blowi. When he recovers, 
keep dodging hii punches 
until he open^ his mouth 
ogoin, and let him hove it, 
□nd follow up with more body 
blows, if you stick to this 
method, you should knock him 
out, and once he's down he 
never gets up. 

There's magic on the side of 
the next boxer. Great Tiger^- 
As weli OS being on excellent 
pugilist, he's olso copoble of 
the deadly Tiger Magic 
punch. When the bout storti. 



keep watching his turban. 
When the \awai at the centre 
Hoihei, dodge he inevitable 
right punch and counter wjlh 
a right, ond woit for the jewel 
toflashagoin. If he 
does a crouching punch, 
dodge and fotlow up with at 
many foce purtcHes as 
potiible. If he uses a Tiger 
Magic punch, use five blocks 
10 counter his attack, and then 
hit him once in the foce when 
he stops to floor him. Timing is 
crllicol, and ti iokes o lol of 
practice to become proficient. 

The finol Major Circuit 
fighter is Bold Bull, o lorge 
ond powerful psych op otn. 
Early in the bout ute oody 
and head punches, and you 
should be oworded with some 
stars, allowing you to use 
upperculs to knock down his 
energy, Keep Ot him uniif he 
siarts jobbing ond usiftg 
crouching punches, 
whereupon you should blocit 
and dod9e resp^edively. 

When he gets really 
mad he'll attempt o Bull 
Charge - he runs to the bock 
of the ring, jumps forward 
three times and delivers a 
deadly punch that'll floor 
yov- The only way to avoid 
this terrible attack is lo punch 
him in the body as he lokes hit 
third jump. Timing is 
incredibly tight, and if yOu 
miss, you'll be KO'ed. Agoin, 
prod ice mokes perfect.

Super Mario Brot ii widely 
regarded as one of the 
greatest ever video gomes, 
and Ihe fact that it has sold 
over 12,000,000 copies is a 
tAitimony to itsphenominal 
inventiveness. The 
iong-swoited sequel was 




A SMB il. 

released in Japan 
and AmericQ earlier this year, 
and look* every bit os good 
OS the original. 

The gome consists of seven 
different worlds, each split 
into threti sub- levels, 
guarded by a Little Boss who 
is d'QsffOyad to progress to the 
next level. 

As well as incorporating 
similar hof izonfaify scrolling 
platform and ladders-tYp« 
gameplay at the sequel, there 
are olso vertically scrolling 
sections where the ploy^r 
ascends ond de^endt the 
londicope- 

At the start of a gome the 
player chooses one of five 
chorocters^ Mario, Luigi, 
Toad or the Prlnc«sf . Each has 
his or her own characteristics: 
Mario it a gc»od alUrounder, 
Luigi can jump high, but slows 
when he's carrying 
something, Toad is stronq, but 
isn't a good jtimper, and the 
Princess con float for a second 
and a half. 

On the first level there are 
waterfalls and cbasms lo 
avoid before elambering up 
to where the Rrst Little E£oss 
resides. Next comes a magic
