Below, on the valley floor, a convoy of armoured trucks snakes its way up towards tht fortress, aptly named The Eagles Nest. Their orders were then to destroy the fortress bui three were captured almoat immediately The fourth was able to place oxplosives in the key places throughout the fortress. Firstly, the scale of the graphics is far larger than Gaunt tor where you can tee a substantial area of the dungeons surrounding your character.
It takes two bullets to kill each guard one In the Spectrum version in lha"eaty" mode so you soon Stan to get a little short. Fortunately, the fortress is strewn with green rectangular ammo dumps, each of which contain ten bullets As with all objects in the game, just walking over an ammo dump is enough to pick up the bullets. These include paintings, boxes of gems, vases, and pendants. Collecting treasure increases your score but has no other effect on the game. Thus the C64 and Amstrad versions have tour Moors while Spectrum owners have eight storey's tot blast Bar tneirway through.
Lifts should be used with extreme discretion because, not only it there only one pass per floor, but also the doors you 're just painstakingly unlocked will be locked again if you return to the floor you're about to eave if you Ve elected to blow up the fortress, you must locate and activate the hidden explosives on each floor When rescuing the captives you must first find each one and lead them, one at a time, back to the ground floor and freedom. Understandably, your rescued comrades are sometimes a little slow to fallow you, having been shackled lo a stone wall for a week, so be careful not to go too last or there'll be lost off lho screen.
On he minus side, the status column, on the Amstred version, can only be seer when the game is paused This makes it more difficult to succeed as you never know Quite how many h its you've got In he nd or whether you're about to fire your last shot Although there is a small chance you may experience slight flickering in certain situations m the Commodore version, it is more or lets faultlessly produced and an exceedingly playable Overall the Commodore version of Eagles Nest a the bestof the three.
The game can be played on two levels, either as a mindless blast with no overall plan of action, or as a mindless blast with some idea of how you've going to succeed. After saving the local townfolk from the loci! St George never had this problem. Anyway, the Greet Wiz ard shu! To release himself, Imogen must use ail his intelligence and st a m i n o to ret ri eve the complete spell. Tough break, huh? Of course, this is a familiar format — you pick up and use objects, and so forth.
But Imogen is a more interesting hero than most. He can turn himself into Other creatures, for example, in order to surmount problems and obstacles — a monkey to climb ropes and trees, a cat to leap over chasms. You can swap between the various characters whenever you like, and very handy it is too. You can also get around by using passwords, although only four are supplied at the start. But from what I could see, the mode are graphics ere smooth and unusually lifelike, with nice clear detail. I would say this is an excellent rendition of an admittedly well-worn theme.
But it just shows how wrong you can be, because PSS is, quite frankly, superb The game is designed for two players, although handling both players' shots yourself can be equally enjoyable. All the main rules of snooker are catered for including touching ball and asking your opponent to play again. By clever use ol The Amslrad's higher resolution four colour mode, progammer Godwin Graham has been able to give us perfectly round bails foiling smoothly over the green baize. The four colours used by the program are green, red.
The screen is dominated by the plan view of the table, Above this are a message window and a magnified view of the cue ball. The window provides a commentary on the game telling the player such Things as when a foul has Occurred or when there's B touching ball. The window will also prompt the player to make specific decisions, such as nominating a colour attar a red has been potted, The graphic of the cue ball is used to set any spin you want to put on any particular shot.
This is done by moving a black spot around ihe cue ball graphic. Thus, for example, ifyou wanted to put a deep screw on 1 he cue bsi I so thai it comes back towards you after he shod you would position the spot towards the bottom of the bell. Below the table are displayed both players' scores and the current break value. To the right are repeal graphics of some of the coloured balls, each labelled to avoid any confusion when nominating a colour during the game.
Suppliers are far loo fond of saying things like that. A game doesn't have to be mrnd- blowingly different to be enjoyable. Tefl make up ar Complete solve the aH become of Xor, badge prog rem 1 mo heroes, for example, both of which can be used to pick up masks and solve puzzles.
To help get the direction right a silhouette of any ball being aimed at the object ball , mil appear behind the cue ball graphic at Ihe Top of the screen So, for example, if the silhouette is directly behind the cue ball then you are aiming straight at the object ball. The further to the right the silhouette appears, the sharper would be the vector of the ob ecl ball after being hit. When you're happy with your aim, press the space bar twice, The time between the two presses sets the power of the shot. Unfortunately it is very difficult to put the power you want on a shot because it's too easy to leave too short or long a gap before hitting space a second time.
Although you gradually get used to this method of play, there have been far more friendly methods of setting power in other games. Apart from normal play the program also offers a comprehensive practice mode lo help you gtil your eye in. There is also an excellent demo game which starts automatically after thirty seconds of inactivity.
The demo has everything from touching balls. Secondly, and more importantly, the method of setting shot strength is not in keeping with what is otherwise a genuine and successful attempt at a snooker game. That said. The screen shots were stunning. Too good in fact for the Amstrad. I read the blurb, Screen shols from arcade k version — home micro v-su;. Who are w j to kid? Do pig's fly?

But this freeway is no ordinary freeway.

It's not an easy game to master, although you can achieve a reasonably high score by nol having a clue what you're doing, as I discovered the first lewlimes I played. What with trying to dodge black holes II never did work out howl, bounce in the right places, avoid the wrong squares, all the lime going as fast as you dare, this is what I would call a challenge.

What was really different about DSD was that the action didn't take place on a board — everything came from the players own Imagination Just think of a game of chess where instead of using a board and pieces the players simply describe their moves in words. You can imagine the difficulty the two creators had convincing the world thai DSD was going to be THE new games craze! Time has proved them righl with the original DSD concept spawning hundreds of imitators Now you can become a barbarian, a space traveller, a comic book hero — you name it.
A role-playing game is like a play in which the actors make up the seripi as they go along. Controlling the fantasy world is a referee or dungeon master who administers the mles and presents players with certain situations which they respond to — taking into account their various abilities, Eactt player 1 character has different skills determined at the start of each game by the roll ol a die. However, experience players can keep their characters and they grow in powers and abilities the more dungeons and venture into.
Strength, intelligence, speed, magical powers etc are represented by numbers dictated by he roll ol the dice. Since they inhabit a fantasy world the players can take on the characteristics ol heroic fighters, scrawny mages or sty thieves. In the course ol their adventures the players will encounter a variety of creatures, some fantastic some very ordinary, who may be good or evil The players may find that these other Inhabitants of the fantasy world are helpful or horrible! More rules cover comba! In fad there are rules which cover almost every possible situation players may encounter during the course of a session in their laniasv land.
So what do ligurincs have to do with this world ol the imagination? Although the games do take place in the mind, some referees began to use markers lo represent the positioning ol characters in relation to each other. Bis helped tor instance in combat situations, since it determined just who could see who, or if the Dragon could rip the dumb barbarian In hall or was he possibly just out of range? Although all that was needed were simple markers, these were not very attractive, and some people began mailing models ol their favourite characters.
These proved so popular that professional toy soldier makers began taking an Interest, and applying their talents to this new trade. The fantasy miniature figure business was bom. Although there had been a huge wave ol inlerest in figurines there had only been sporadic attempts to explain what to do with them. A lot of people were drawn into the hobby simply through the miniatures themselves, since they were very cot led able and attractive Artists had meanwhile discovered that figures wei another medium in which lo exercise their talents and the results.
Gradually, the magazines responded lo this interest and began running features which included full colour photographs and. A basic figure is generally twenty five millimetres high. The sculptor of the figure works from a concept sketch, so the idea of what he is trying lo produce is fixed firmly in his mind Then a wire skeleton is made and the bulk of the model is buitt up using a coarse putty Once this is dry.
The sculptor employs a wide range of Instruments, from pencil lips to dentists' tools to create various effects. What surprises the outsider Is that the sculptors wort In the same scale as the finished mode. Once the master figure is completed it Is used to create rubber moulds. It one mistake is made I hen the likeness of thai particular model Is lost forever. The figure is cast and silting there in front or you. What next? Once cleaned of unwanted bits of metal, it may be painted. There is a huge variety of possible types ol paint to use , Irom artists oils through inks lo acrylics.
Each has different properties and may give different and unique effects, but it is a sale bet for a beginner to use acrylic paints since they are wafer based, do not smell, dry quickly and give nice, bright tofoors while still being easy lomir. As long as a potential painter has a good set of brushes, an adequate set of paints and sufficient time, then there is no reason why Ihey cannot produce wort Of the quality shown in my book. As In everything else In tile, the key to good results is lime, practice and effort Johi Blanche is one ol the top figure painters in the country, and works as Art Editor for Citadel Miniatures.
This company is one of the oldest In the business and is now the largest fantasy figure producer n the world — they usually have around ten sculptors working full time, simply making master mi matures. Several of John's figures were used to illustrate this article Figure painting is a rewarding hobby lllakes time, but the final product is very attractive, and certainly collectable Any person wishing to try. You certainly end up laughing more, and bouncing ideas off of each other And of course.

A combination of cheap, powerful computers aggressively marketed, has servied to put Atari well and truly back on the world map. On the domestic front, since the arrival of Bob Gleadow to the number one slot, there has been a shift in emphasis towards an ST range for home and entertainment use as well as for more serious business applications.
The very fact that you're reading an article which forms part of C VG's Atari Special is tangible proof that developers of entertainment software are taking the ST seriously. In fact some IS new releases didn't find their way into the review section this month through sheer lack of space! To mark C VG's first ST pull-out, we sent David Bishop, our regular ST games reviewer, along to Atari house for an informal chat with Bob Kati and Roland White house who between them are responsible for software acquistion, development, and marketing support.
RW — "You won't have to wait much longer. In fact I can tell you that we're planning a three phase release covering seven titles. Phase one sees the release of a vastly upgraded version of Neochrome, together with Joust and Star Raiders which should be available now, "Phase two will include Battle zone and Crystal Cashes, and Robotron and Millepede will appear in phase three. These titles will be for both 8 and 16 bil machines and even the VCS games consle.
So does this mean that you're resurrecting Atarisoft? BK — "Oh very much so. We're concentrating on sourcing and developing titles for all Atari machines. In the past, potential programmers, or game designers may have been put off from coming direct to a hardware manufacturer for fear their title might get lost or forgotten amongst so many other hardware or software launches.
RW — "We keep in close touch with almost every software house that's actively producing Atari product. We may be able to help them with extra technical documentation, or early viewing or acquisition of new hardware, and we can certainly keep them bang up to date with our future plans. BK — "Wherever a program uses 'line A' instructions, that's those involved with the movement of graphics primitives, gem windows etc.
It's important to remember that many games aren't written in a Gem environment and these will not be affected by the blitter," When will the blitter be available? RW — "We have set up a test department here, to pick up anything like that long before it hits the streets. We are asking all developers of ST titles to send us two copies of everything they release, One copy goes into our demo library, where it stays. Library copies aren't even loaned out to employees, in fact they don't move from that room. Obviously the quicker we can get hold of third party titles, the better.
We Ve heard alot about the new Mega STs. What are the main differences fromtheS2Q s? BK— "Interestingly enough, many of the changes made for the Mega's area as a direct result of comments and questions from users - Things like the battery clock, the new position of the jockstick ports at the back 9, and the detachable keyboard, all came about this way.
Of course the Blitter will be fitted as standard in the new machines. You will be able to switch it in or out from desktop. Football Ch. Wrestling Ch. Of you NU be rery disappointed!

And like OVG. Despite making money, the game did not meet with critical approval. Domark bosses Dominic Wheatfey and Mark Siraehan are determined it won't happen again.
He follows in he footsteps of Roger Moore. George Lazenby and Sean Can- nery who have all played the pari The title ol the m is taken from a short story by Bond's creator Ian Fleming. At the time ol writing the plot ol The Living Daylights is still a closely guarded secret. However it thought to about a Russian general who wants to detect to the West Bond is assigned Id help and protect and at the same time gets Involved with an evil arms dealer by the name of Wh maker. Add 10 that the ingredients which have become standard in the Bond Films ot lain — last cars, gadgets, gimmicks and, of course, a bevy of beautiful girls.
And of course there are the slums They're bound to be un- believable, silly, but al the same time great fun and bound to make you gasp arid laugh, in fact, there's this stunt where The game consists ot a playing area split into three sections. Each section scrolls to left at a ditlerent rate to give ihe im- pression ot three dimensions. The foreground makes up about one tenth of playing area, show- ing things such as buildings and hedges. The mid-ground takes up be- tween three and fourth tenihs ot the playing area. This Is where Bond moves, On some levels rocks and holes will appear in this section which must jump over, The background will consist of scenes from the film and where Bond's enemies will appear.
Bond will face four main types ol opponents and obstacles. These are: Snipers — these will appear from behind buildings, trees etc in the background. Attar a short pause which will allow the play- er to read, they will begin firing at Bond. II they are not shot by ihey will take cover again only to reappear later dr.
Throwing men — These are planned to appear on the right ot the screen and wilt throw va- rious deadly weapons at Bond. He must duck and jump lo avoid ihem Hocks — these will be in the mid-ground. Bond must jump over thfim Helicopters — these will travel along the top ol the screen dropping bombs Bond must fight his way through the diffe- rent backgrounds, representing scenes from the tilm.
Belore each level he must choose one ol four weapons. But it must be a wise choice. Only one weapon will be of use. The weapons, which will not be the same ones be lore each level, include knives, crossbows and bazookas The games opening setting will be Gibraltar. The guns aren'1 real. Bui the problem is lhat somewhere, looking exactly ihe same as the SAS men, is an assassin. He's deadly and is out lo kill bond.
Bond meets the Russian defector Kos- kov and must protect him Irom the Soviets. Survive and the action then switches to the Trans-Siberian pipeline. The more tranquil and civilised setting of an En- glish country mansion does not prove any safer for Bond and Koskov. Soviet agents want Kos- kov back and will stop al nothing to gel him. Beware Innocent looking people. Don't lose your bottle! Alt the tun of the fair next as Bond laces danger among ihe amusements.
Neil Bond is off lo Tanglers, avoiding capture by police The action takes place on ihe roof- tops. The next action has Bond cap- tive in a Russian aeroplane. He must fight his way in freedom without damaging the aircraft The next setting is a military complex in Afghanistan Can Bond take on the entire Soviet military might? Finally Bond musi face and defeat an evil arms dealer. All the program- ming learns — including the team on Ihe arcade version — are all working from his game plan.
In theory this means that all the versions should more or less be the same. Richard believes it is probably the first time an arcade game and computer game have been designed at the same lime. Says Richard: "The Amer- icans were going to design the game lor us. What they came up with was something we did in A View to a Kill, three games in one.
Nobody throught that was a good idea. He set about it the other way round. I came op with the idea ol a man walking along, shooting in front of a scrolling background. It was then a matter ol tying ihe background and characters Irom ihe film to the game. Next month don't miss ihe next report on The living Day- lights, more screen shots, pic- tures from the film and news ot an exclusive Bond competition planned for this summer.

ISBN 13: 9780615340258
Othe first programs that realty showed the Beeb could support quality software despite limited memory and graphical capabilities, was AcomsoJVs A u tator written by Geoff Crammond Geoff then went on to produce Rrus initially for the Beeb and , 7 has that rare quality of being totally original, and was recently voted Most Original Game of at -i very own Golden Joystick awards Now available for the Amstrad and Specturm game finds you as a robot ,t un working your way through the 10, landscapes which make up the world of the Sentinel.
Each landscape consists of mountains, valleys and plateaux The plateaux are made up of squares, rather like vast, open-plan chess boards. By using the keyboard only controls, you can swivel round and look in any direction. You can also pan up or down To defeat the Sentinel in each landscape, you must absorb its energy. This is done by working your way up to a vantage point, from which you can see down onto the square the Sentinel is occupying The catch is that you always begin at on- the lowest points in the landscape, normally with the Sentinel lowering high above you.
What is the secret to success in this highly ongmal punt? If you've tried this level before and failed, see if you landscape, as this will activate the Sentinel and sentries who will start to recognize any features which rotate and scan may give you a clue as to the start position. You will normally start in one of the lowest points of the landscape, towards the front of the map — bottom of the screen. If you're still having problems hen make a quick sketch showing your position relative to the little horrors.
Also look at the faces of the Sentinel and senfries — is one already looking at you or about to face you if it turns this way? Note which way they start rotating egame begins- Mark th information down on apiece of paper if necessary. This should help you to formulate a plan as to which direction to go in order to avoid being scanned too many times early in the game.
Use this to your advantage and keep your head down until the danger has passed Then, when you hear the Sentinel rotate away, make a dash for it! In some landscapes, the only way to succeed may be to hyperspace early on. Remember, though, this uses up three units of energy and you can't assume you'll find any trees to absorb when you get to the ot her end. You'll almost always need to create a boulder or two, as well as teleport once. This is a dangerous ploy as you're tying up too much of your energy resources on one square.
This leaves you fewer options for the nest move. Also, if you get scanned. Finally, if you teleport onto the top of a targe stack of boulders, especially one that is close to your present positions you'll use up precious seconds panning down until you are looking down on the square from whence you came in order to re-absorb your old robot. Whenever possible, avoid u? The further you teleport the ker you'll be able to re- absorb your old robot,sjnd any boulders he may have been standing on.
The other circumstances under which you may not have a clear view back, is when teleporting long distances where a mountain may get in the way. You may well be able to see the top of robot, but its base may :dden behind the sloping aide of a mountain. Very often you will hear the sentry rotate after it has absorbed the boulder This may mean that you can now teleport to the square with relative safety as the sentry will now have to rotate by almost degrees before tit can scan that square again. Of course, when you're up against a number of sentries, the only way of being sure that one of the others isn't now scanning the square, is to absorb the tree that was left and create another boulder in its place.
It takes the Sentinel, or a sentry, twelve moves to make a complete rotation, so use you ears! Remember, once you finally absorb the Sentinel and hyperspace out of the landscape, you will be taken to another landscape whose number is equivalent to the last one, plus the energy you had when you hyperspaced. The higher your energy level the more landscapes you can skip and, who knows, you may even see landscape number 10, this decade!
Don't forget, when the Sentinel saps your energy, it creates trees randomly over the landscape. So, when searchi ng for trees you might have missed , lake the time to scour areas th. Armed with this information you can adopt a strategy of opera 1 1 ng in areas the t have always just been scanned. If all else fails, go back to the previous landscape you completed and play it again. Gunship't revolutionary 3D graphics enable yen!
Remember those three Spectrum adventures from Incentive, that won the first person to solve them a video recorder' It's nice to see that they haven't died, and have just returned for the BBC and CM. The C64 version has one of the most original features I have seen in an adventure. It has a self-drawing map! The top half of the screen starts off blank, and every time a new location is entered, it is drawn on the screen, with a!
If you revisit a place, there is a little man with a pointy stick, who moves about and points to where you are. Of course, it would not be possible for many adventures to use a feature like this, for it all depends on whether the structure of the map lends itself to the treatment.
