Prince Of Persia
Put on your heroic head and help the young adventurer on his
quest to save the princess (yet another girl’s blouse — Ed) from
the clutches of the evil Jaffar. Lots of jumping over large gaps, falling onto
spikes and getting sliced in two by mega blades! That’s if you’re
not careful where you’re stepping.
Lots of atomic mayhem in this hair-tearing puzzle game, spread
over 70 action packed levels! See the review in this issue for the full
FREDSoft’s first release includes two addictive puzzle
games in one pack. In Tritex you have to pair up the symbols to clear
each level and you even get mouse control! Viking, for two players, is
based on an ancient board game.
This classic Spectrum game of yesteryear has made it onto SAM
— only this version is even better! Skim through 60 levels of upgraded
and coloured graphics and boogie on down to the new toe tapping music!
Another classic Spectrum game, this time the Incentive hit,
Splat! You’re Zippy, a character that can only be described as a
‘thing’, who has to escape from a really weird land. You’ve
no control over the way the landscape scrolls, but you have to guide Zippy away
from the walls and death! On the way out you can eat grass, plums and avoid
traps like spikes and water. There are 21 levels to play, some of which are
A mega tile game with the balls zipping across the screen,
losing momentum the higher they get and forming an arch. Every level is packed
with colourful MODE 4 graphics and the power up icons that can be collected
will have you losing your mind with such effects as extra balls, expanding bats
and slow motion play!
The Sound Machine
Any budding pop stars out there? Then The Sound Machine
is just for you. You control SAM’s voice box and can enter notes and
songs using the simple menus, edit and improve them using keyboard, joystick or
mouse. Eat your heart out, Kylie!
F-16 Combat Pilot
In this corking flight sim, due out for Chrimbles, you can zoom
round the landscapes with shaded 3D or wire frame graphics and attempt the
daring missions waiting for you. Most of the graphics have been ported directly
from the Atari ST so it’s gotta be good.
