LEARNING, TO FLY
So you want to be a binary celebrity? A master of machine code writing chart-topping hits? Mastertronic probably publish more first-time programmers than anyone else in the business, so we talked to Budget Supremo Andrew Wright about how it works. From sending the tape in, to preparing the artwork, we have the full story.
The programmers of Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back are putting the finishing touches to the ‘ultimate combat flight sim’, Bomber. We talked to chief programmer Andy Craven about solid 3-D, MiG’s and the confession of a rock star.
The man with the Right Stuff is Chuck Yeager; WWII aces, test pilot and Vietnam vet. His classic C64 flight sim has finally been converted to the Spectrum, allowing Speccy owners to get flight lessons from Chuck himself, then test fly all the latest jets.
