The Dam Buster Man - 1 page (33)

Michael Bate was in town. Not our town, unfortunately, so we had to interview the man who's behind such games as BC's Quest for Tires and The Dam Busters over the telephone.
Sydney Developments is a Canadian company, and Michael Bate is sort of Producer/Director on their games - an ideas person. He was in the UK, talking to US Gold, and we seized the opportunity to save the cost of a transatlantic phone call, and rang US Gold's Birmingham HQ.

ReviewsEdit

Game Title Publisher Reviewer(s) Page No(s) Val (%) Summary
Thing on a Spring Gremlin GP, JR 18-19 93 Sproing, sproing, sproing you can't go wrong.
Beach-Head II US Gold GP, JR, PS 20-22 90 A fantastic piece of software, one look will convince you.
View to a Kill, A Domark GP, JR, PS 23-24 36 A powerful idea that seems to have missed the point.
Way of the Exploding Fist, The Melbourne House GP, JR, PS 30-32 93 A slick, polished package, fun to play and requiring skill.
Nutcraka Software Projects GP, JR, PS 34 22 Might appeal to the very young.
Action Biker Mastertonic GP, JR, PS 40 83 Good game, low price, can't be bad.
Jack Charlton's Match Fishing Alligata PS 42-43 70 An interesting game to be commended for trying something new, probably has limited appeal for those who prefer making a lot of noise on the river bank.
Captive, The Mastertronic GP 42-43 61 By no means outstanding but still pretty good.
Lands of Havoc Microdeal GP, JR, PS 44 36 A very empty and thin arcade adventure.
Elidon Orpheus GP, JR, PS 46 83 A good arcade adventure of exceptional beauty.
Dig Dug US Gold GP, JR, PS 66 54 Conversion of ageing arcade favourite that will appeal mainly to ageing arcade junkies.
Rocky Horror Show, The CRL GP, JR, PS 72 43 Sadly doesn't match up to the Spectrum version.
Pac-Man US Gold GP, JR, PS 88 35 It's the best version of Pac-Man on the 64, but it's just too late.
International Tennis Commodore GP, JR, PS 90-91 86 The best available to date.
Jump Jet Anirog GP, JR, PS 92 42 Probably won't even appeal to the average armchair pilot.
Confuzion Incentive GP, JR, PS 95 89 The best arcade-puzzle available.
Fourth Protocol, The Hutchinson GP, JR, PS 96-98 95 One of the most impressive programs we've seen this year.
Brian Bloodaxe The Edge GP, JR, PS 99 18 Just very disappointing.
Jet Set Willy II: The Final Frontier Software Projects GP, JR, PS 100 24 First sequel to actuall include the original, perhaps you ought to send in your old JSW and get a refund against the new one.
Herbert's Dummy Run Mikro-Gen GP, JR, PS 104-105 59 Not a lot different from the others in the series.
Stop the Express Commodore GP, PS 104-105 66 By no means outstanding but certainly a good little game for the price.
