ReviewsEdit

Game Title Publisher Reviewer(s) Page No(s) Val (%) Summary
Dropzone US Gold GP, JR, BW 18-20 95 Shmup fans can't afford not to have this one.
Entombed Ultimate GP, JR, BW 22-23,26 93 Even better than Staff of Karnath - what more can you say.
Rockford's Riot Monolith GP, JR, BW 28-29 82 If you haven't got Boulderdash the VFM is out of this world.
Hunchback at the Olympics Software Projects GP, JR, BW 32-33 24 Even at this price it's old and bad.
Roland's Rat Race Ocean GP, JR, BW 32-33 71 Great short term enjoyment although you may not come back to it after completion.
Spitfire 40 Mirrorsoft GP, JR, BW 34-35 33 There are much better flight simulators than this - even Glider Pilot has faster graphics.
Hi Bouncer! Mirrorsoft GP, BW 34-36 64 Good fun for all kids - we liked it!
Stringer Addictive GP, JR, BW 36-37 42 A very simple game that looks dated and won't inspire.
Operation Whirlwind Ariolasoft GP, JR, BW 36-38 76 Great value for a war game and easy to play.
Kikstart Mastertronic GP, JR, BW 42-43 90 The most impressive cheapo game we've ever seen.
The Bulge Lothlorien JR, BW 44-45 63 Great sussing out the battle plan but once cracked may pall.
Chopper Creative Sparks GP, JR, BW 44-45 56 A nice cheap shmup but pretty ordinary.
Amazon Warrior New Generation GP, BW 48 51 If you've got Forbidden Forest forget it.
Knockout Alligata GP, JR, BW 62-63 31 More variety and game flexibility are needed.
Ghettoblaster Virgin GP, JR, BW 62,64-65 69 Tremendous instant appeal but constantly collecting tapes may pall.
Taskmaster Creative Sparks GP, JR, BW 64-65 77 Excellent cheap game with enough difficulty to keep you busy.
Dam Busters, The US Gold GP, JR, BW 66 81 An excellent program bound to appeal to many tastes.
Conan US Gold GP, JR, BW 69 32 Can't figure out why it's only disk-based and for this type of game it's overpriced.
Whirlinurd US Gold GP, JR, BW 70-71 65 Disappointingly doesn't live up to the instructions, but it's tough.
Operation Swordfish British Software JR, BW 70-71 19 Rotten price for a very simple game.
Jonah Barrington's Squash New Generation GP, JR, BW 72 70 A good simulation that is very playable.
Strangeloop Virgin GP, JR, BW 74-75 86 One of the best aardvarks around, providing lots of complexity.
Chickin Chase Firebird GP, JR, BW 76 79 Great impact and excellent high scoring potential.
Poker Duckworth JR, BW 79 68 Perfect for those with a reckless gambling streak.
Gribbly's Day Out Hewson GP, JR, BW 96-97 90 A brilliantly original game with terrific control and a demanding task.
Gates of Dawn Virgin GP, JR 104 64 Not as good as Strangeloop and Entombed but still quite tough.
Spooks Mastertronic GP, JR, BW 108-109 70 Good arcade adventure for little cash.
Ciphoid 9 Monarch GP, JR, BW 108-109 18 Oh dear. Sadly below the advertising claims.
