Mentioned Q&Q watch was sold for some $30+ Dollars in Miami in year 2000 - 2001(also manufactured)

Indian man entered our store all excited insisting me how Q&Q will from now on produce high quality

products such as those of Citizen etc. A local criminal from Slovenia who used genocide against me to penetrate on markets arrived to Miami and bought good number of watches straight from Indian neighbor in Miami Downtown. Slovenian career criminals such as Lojze Peterle / Bavčar and others who next to Kučan wouldn't allow me to exist, opened one road just as to other Slovenian self employed criminals lucrative deals abroad.

I was against purchasing Q&Q watch due to cost which in my eyes was exceeding costs of Casio/Citizen at the time  and because Indian guy inflated costs associated with one for probably at least $10. Was extremely disrespectful. Chosen by my Ex wife to whom one gave discount, watch was sent to Slovenia. All the girls involved in MK Ultra, however, begun to investigate...original name for mentioned watch produced by Citizen as was told by Thai Princess Bajrakitiyabha was Mother Of Pearl watch as seen above. Pollacks involved in watch issue a poster as seen bellow etc. Watch became a passion of many and one more curse on my way to freedom. Selling watches inside of the ex wife's store, I wouldn't even wear any due to being traumatized with degree of crime which went on via MK Ultra specially back in Slovenia and due to stress in daily life. Slovenian police officers harassed also inside of the ex wife's store with our products which at times I would purchase with entire salaries so wife could have something for sale...I will be fortunate if I manage to survive this murderous British corruption ordeal $$$$ as was nothing about other than getting one systematically murdered.


When package was ready in 2001 - 2002, ex wife brought watch perhaps even two(possibly also for sister I have no clue), and we send one to Europe with other gifts. Mother, however, sent to Miami repeatedly Dollar banknotes as how pathetic whole situation was...certainly some $300 in cash over the years.

This watch is not worth to me shit - it was a replica of what I wanted of watch for myself that resulted in robbery of life. Shit watch

Abru makes appearances throughout the game and is always causing trouble for Slick. Thankfully, you'll know when he's approaching as an alarm sounds as he enters your current screen.

Overpowering a guard, you grab his gun and set out on your quest for freedom! T he Colditz Story is a huge arcade adventure game, and begins with you in the top room of the Castle. You have three options — move, take or drop. To move, simply hit one of the directional keys — if you want to take or drop hit T or D. Some rooms have nothing in them, but often, upon entering a room, you'll find yourself at the beginning of a mini-game. You may have to swing across a rope, blow up-a German guard, sneak past a patrol, answer questions — each one requiring a different skill to complete. Complete a screen and you can move again — fail and the dawn shooting party awaits!! As you move around the castle, your position is shown on the right of the screen. The top display shows available exits, and the whole castle map is shown below: the window of your current location lights up as you enter a room. Can you find the right escape route before being caught?! COLOITZ KEYS The ultimate prize for any prisoner — the keys! And they are: Q/up, A/down, O/left, P/right, l/inventory. T/take, D/drop.

FAIR PRICE FOR SOFTWARE Prices for SAM Coupe software look set to stay at the price initiated by Enigma Variations when it released Defenders ofthe Earth, that's £11.99 on cassette and £14.99 on disk. 'It would be easy to charge a lot more for SAM Software,' commented an Enigma spokesman, 'but we feel that people who b * It's Pfpe Mania! This is a screen from the Atari ST version • Enigma Variations reckon the Coupe version will look identical. Probably. 0 SC O R-E : *ith Coupe software as yet but CMiS PD is willing to take a look at any games, demos or utilities Coupe owners send in. At the moment three pieces of software are available, amd they are: Soccer Challenge — a soccer management gome featuring full colour made four graphics, sound fx ond music; Satellite '90 is a space target shoot-'em up, similar to Operation Wolf, ogain with mode four graphics, music and sound fx. The third piece of software is Sprite Editor which features easy editing facilities Two demo disks are also available. The PD disks cost £1.50 each and you can get full details and o catalogue, if you enclose o stamped addressed envelope, by writing to: CMS SAM Coupe PD, 70 Donald Drive, Chadwe-li Heoth, Romford, Essex RM6 5DU. • Q: What exactly is a public domain library? A: Right ho, first of all you need to understand what public domain software is. It's software, which can be a game, a utility or simply a graphics and sonix demo, whicf au trior has given up their copyright on. This means that anyone is free to bought the Coupe were | ooking for 16-bit computing power and graphics without tne high cost of software at £25 a shot — we have to offer them power ond performance at a fair price.' Bravo! The only known exception to the £11,99/£14.99 price rule is Trivial Pursuit which has always sold at £15 on cassette and £ 2 0 on disk*. You can contact Enigmo Variations at: 13 North Park Rood, Harrogate HG1 GPD. SAM PD A public domain library cotering specially for Sam Coupe software has been set up by David Cowell of CMS PD, As the library has just got going, CMS's shelves are not exactly bulging copy and distribute it, without profiting from it. A PD library basicalfy keeps a stock of software from which you can choose what you want. Cost is very low — you simply pay the price of a disk post and packaging and a small handling charge. In CMS's cose it's just £1.50. Often it's the best way of getting softwore and if you're a programmer if II get you noticed. Check it out! QUICKSHOT TIP EB Evans from Mansfield, Notts dropped the SAM desk a line to on this tip: If you're having pri with software when using o Quickshot II joystick on tne SAM Coupe try disconnecting the red wire in the joystick. The red wire is the autofire connection but Mr Evans found it was simply causing chaos and games continually crashed So you'll be without autorire, but the crashing problem should be cured. The outputs on the 'stick ore 0 for fire and 6789 for directional control. WHO DREW THAT? The screen shot published here lost month of a spiffy sports car was created by DA tattersall from Barnsley.

TWO-PACE JET MA N EXTRAVAGANZA CRASH CHRISTMAS PLUS NOVEMBER 1 5 199 0 BRILLIANT IDEA Dear Lloyd I've got a brilliant idea. I own a Spectrum +2A and waiting for games like Batman to load takes years. My idea will make this time fly! Software houses could do a bit of advertising instead of showing a loading picture. Providing a service like Ceefax: they advertise different games giving a review of each, and if I wanted to read about a different game I could just press the space bar to turn over a page'. This would help the company sell more g^mes and keep me happy while the game loads. When the game has loaded I could come out of the service and play the game. Is this brilliant, or is this brilliant?! Why don't companies do this? Richard Corden, Leek ST13 6EP. What a grea t idea! The reason games don't already have this service is because you've only just thought of it! Here, have a $40 software voucher and a gold star for being so clever!! LM FAIR OR FOUL? Dear Lloyd My son is always on the look out for combat, rniartial arts and boxing games for his computer. Recently he spotted a new release fromi CodeMasters called Pro Boxing Simulator. The screens hots on the back of the game looked! impressive and so my son eagerly spent £2.99 of his hard earned I pocket money and 18 • CRASH NOVEMBER [ excitedly took the game home. Imagine his disappointment on loading up to find that it was only By Fair Means Or Foul originally from Superior Software under a different guise, which he has had I for over a year and was released around January of 1989. The only I change in the game appears to be the main title screen where | ]ust the name has been changed. I felt strongly that this game was being promoted unfairly. The | packaging falsely described the product as a new release. I am writing to you with the I hope that you might publish this i letter and warn your readers. Roy Acland. Maidstone ME20 6TY. | Yes. it is quite unfair to promote a product as a new release when the actual game had been | published before. This case calls j for a bit of Mangram | investigation and so I've been on the blower to Richard Darling at CodeMasters who had this to I say. Pro Boxing Simulator was a I new release from CodeMasters. | but it was really unfortunate I and a mistake not to indicate that the game had been originally published with a different name. The cassette inlay has since been reprinted and now includes the information on the cover' CodeMasters is also offering to recompense anyone who bought the original By Fair Means Or Foul game and has since also bought Pro Boxing Simulator believing it to be a different product.

COVER STORY Dear Lloyd I've been buying CRASH for ages now and never once have my parents commented on CRASH However, when I bought my last issue my mother said, 'Nick, the illustrations on these magazines are always very good ' I suppose I'd never really noticed how excellent they were. I then went and looked through all my back issues and noticed how good they all were. So, could you answer a few questions for me: Who draws these pictures? Does he draw them on a computer? Was he once a professional artist? Does he do the CRASH posters as well? Has he been at CRASH from issue one? Please help me Lloyd! Nicholas Watters, Manchester M28 4TN. Right then Nick, answers ahoy! CRASH covers are designed and illustrated by none other than Oliver Frey who also edits the magazine. The illustrations are first sketched out in pencil, the major colours are airbrushed in and finally the details are hand painted using inks. Oli still is a professional artist, and has illustrated for many magazines in his career and currently illustrates for our sister magazines ZZAP! and FEAR. He has also drawn Dan Dare and drew the Superman comic that features at the beginning of the original film. Oli not only painted the very first CRASH cover but actually created CRASH in 1984. For that ultimate Oli experience you can't do better than the giant A1 Oli posters now available through the mail order pages (plug!). LM RADIO SPECCY FM!

Dear Lloyd Could you please tell me why everybody who organises a computer fail always stages tt in London Why can't it be in different places around Britain every year like the National Garden Festival7 If something doesn't change soon I shall abandon the idea altogether. N Salt. Bishop Auckland DL74 ODS For the answer to that, please give a big CRASH welcome to the organiser of the All Formats Computer Fail, Bruce Evenss!! "The thing is, 60-70% of people in Britain live within a suitable commuting distance from London. People have tried to organise regional fairs, but have always been unsuccessful. This is because it's more difficult for most people to get to a regional venue than travel to London.' There you have it. It's a case of not being able to please all of the people all of the time, but pleasing most of the people all the time. Erm.. or something like that.

Start the offending tape, and the game should now load. These games now load with the command, whereas they didn't before: Monty on the Run, Bounty Bob Strikes Back, Lunar Jetman and Marsport.'

AMSTRAD KILLS PLUS 3 • The Spectrum +3 is dead. The top of the range computer is no longer to be manufactured by Amstrad The company made the shock decision last month, leaving only the Plus 2 in production. Launched three years ago the Plus 3 was aimed towards more serious computer users. A variety of business packages were written for it in a hope that it would be see* as a business rather than pleasure machine. Of course the people vho bought it were not all interested in the latest data base or spreadsheet available, they wanted to play games, and software companies started to produce disk as well as tape versions of all their producs. So what went wrong? With 15% of all Spectrum owners owning a Plus 3 and disks being produced all fie time why scrap such a success story? The mam reason seems to be the new disk-based Amstrad CPC 6128 Plus machine. Amstrad does not want potential buyers lo have to make the decision between its new computer and the much cheaper Plus 3: the best way to ensure the new machine takes off is, of course, to get rid of the competition. This doesn't mean the end though, far from it The Plus 2 is still a sizzling success and coupled with the Sam Coupe will take Spectrum computing into the future. Gotta high score?

Three heroes, Johnny. Sammy and Paul (could it be Big Fun in disguise?!) pit their battle skills against an army of zombies. Through the ruined city streets our heroes trudge blasting all that moves, and if you're too slow on that trigger you'll end up in the same state as the villains! R-Type II is the second release and it's another mega space blaster. Like the original, your craft is initially armed with a laser gun, but bolt on extra weapons can be collected. R Type gained a CRASH Smash two years ago — will its sequel do as well? Stay tuned! Jonny, Sammy and Paul, looking a lot like big Fun, rough if up with a load zombies in Beast Busters n c i JUDE! • A big warm, soft, cuddly welcome to the latest member of the CRASH team — it's a GIRL (y'know, them things what are different from blokes)! Big' Judith Bamford joined the team in September and is Group Advertisement Manager, which means she rings up software houses and hollers 'Give us your money!!!', What does this mean to you lot though? Well, it you have a problem with an advertiser drop Big Jude a line and she'll try to sort it out! Remember though folks, she's a busy lady so before you approach her there's a few things you should know: • Jude lives in 'sunny' Birmingham. She wanted to move to Ludlow but isn't allowed because she worries sheep!! • Jude's very talkative. In fact, her mouth doubles as a steam turbine1 • Jude's favourite Speccy game is Chase HO which she reckons is a real simulation of her driving!! • Jude used to be a dancer six years ago and invented the disco craze for wearing white .high-heels and dancing around a collection of handbags!! • Jude's favourite food is Tangy bars! • Jude has a friend who's not very good at keeping secrets!!

Dragons, eh? Big spooky creatures with big gnashing teeth, sharp claws and always up to no good! Bit like kittens really. Anyway, If you've never been a dragon before (pretty unlikely) here's your chance with Storm's new coin-op conversion Saint Dragonl Saint Dragon is part of the Cyborg Monster army, an attacking force of monster machines causing hell throughout the galaxy! None before had the strength to stand against the power of the Cyborgs, but Saint Dragon rebels against the Cyborg Masters and begins its fight against the tyrants! The Dragonship is under your control as it enters five levels of non-stop mayhem and destruction! There's a host of weaponry to turn the Dragonship Into the ultimate fighting machine! Look at this lot: the lethal armoured tall, fireballs, bouncing bombs, ling lasers and turret weapons, all useful to destroy the swarm of mechanoid bulls, punas and cobras that are your opponents! SOUNDS PRETTY HOT! It's a rollicking arcade blast and a game worthy of a mega CRASH cover illustration — which leads us onto the great prizes on offer in this Saint Dragon compo! On offer are 75 — 75!!! — exclusive Saint Dragon t-shlrts featuring this month's cover illustration by Oliver Prey, reproduced in full colour! This is a real limited edition prize — only 75 will ever be made available to the public and winning one in this compo is the only way you'll ever be able to get one!! Destined to be a collectors item, the Saint Dragon t-shirt will bring you fame, fortune and make you look dead sexy, probably. To be in with a chance of winning get your glasses out, squint a bit, hold the magazine at a funny angle and look closely at the two dragon pictures on this page. Look identical, don't they? Ah ha! They're not! It's what we call in the biz' a Spot the Difference Compo! Hurrah! There are ten differences between picture A and picture B — can you spot them? If you can, ring each difference, fill in the name and address coupon, snip it out of the mag (or make a photocopy) and send it to: NEWSFIELD, DRAGON T-SHIRT COMPO, CRASH. LUDLOW, SHROPSHIRE SY8 1JW. Entries here by November 15 cos that's prize-picking day, and follow the compo rules or face the wrath of the Cyborg Monsters! BleeH * 75 CRASH ST.

Super Off Road in the arcade is a three player no holds barred game where you race around eight barren and pot holed tracks trying to beat your mate$ to the finish line. On the computer the aim Is the same, but there can only be two human players (the other two are computer controlled). When you've set the game controls it's straight into the PRISON RIOT IKUCT H KfcV t Players Premier • £2.9 9 • | oe Blade is back! Back! BACK! Except he isn't. But he might as well be as Prison Riot is a typical Joe Blade style game. Not that it makes it bad. Not at all. because this natty flipscreen arcade adventure is one heap of fun! Chaos abounds in a security prison where, overnight, the inmates rioted and are now running around with hoods over their faces and causing no end of trouble! The only way to halt the riot, before a complete massacre occurs, is to recapture the seven ringleaders and chuck em off the prison roof (don't worry, a helicopter winches them away)!! While rampaging inmates are dangerous and touching one drains energy, you are armed with a rifle, but ammo is limited so keep an eye out for top-ups. When ammo runs dry, knock off opponents by kicking their heads in! Other top-ups include keys to open security doors and food to replenish energy. Capturing the ring leaders isn't easy — first you have to find them, one by one, and then correctly solve a puzzle before leading them away. Graphically it's a bit on the mega side — all the characters are animated well and are dumpy and cartoonlike. Backdrops are varied and well designed so as not to be cluttered. Prison Riot is an excellent arcade adventure and the only hang up is that you have only one life. CRASH t-shirt to the first infinite lives Poke!! RICHARD RATING first race, with all participants, both human and computer, beginning the season on equal par (ie with no dosh). The idea is to complete each race in as high a position as possible and thus earn loadsadosfc, — Each race consists of four laps, and il jostling with three rival drivers isn't bad enough the state ot the tracks is terrible. Huge mounds ot earth, pot holes and watery obstacles stand in the way, but you do have some help. You start the game with 25 nitros: press the lirebutton and hold onto your crash helmet — and keep your eyes peeled because extras can be collected from the track. At the end of each race the prize money is distributed Uipi f This Is a racing game with a difference. You view mOl l the proceedings from high up in the air, and the animation used on all the cars is out of this world! As each car goes over bumps and ramps on the track It tilts up and down and jumps very realistically. Each track is packed full of seemingly impossible obstacles for you to get around. Grills, water pits, domes In the road, they're all there to try and slop you finishing first. Racing against another three computer players gives the game a feeling ol excitement as you attempt to get over the line first. Super Otl Road Racer Is a great game, full of road wrecking fun. 88% and you're sent to the spare parts shop to improve your 4x4. It s then onto the next race to win the fame and glory that you deserve, plus a lot of money on the way. All the coin-op's addictive gameplay has certainly been transferred to the Speccy conversion, and as always the best way to play is against a friend. Graphically the game is greal with small but nicely detailed and last moving car sprites. The backgrounds are also detailed and certainly cause headaches, especially when an opponant is on your tail and you end up al the bottom of a water filled hole!

Enigma Variations • £11.9 9 • £14.9 9 Sam Coupe F our games that will test your brain rather than your trigger finger: In Nuclear Waste you try to save Earth by disposing of dangerous cannisters of waste in a giant spaceship. The objective is to launch the ship before the cannisters become volatile. A series ot conveyor belts are set up for the cannisters to travel along and all you have to do is switch on the correct lift to move them up. The game only becomes challenging on the later levels when the conveyors speed up and more cannisters arrive. The simplistic graphics definitely don't do the Coup6 justice, and Nuclear Waste soon gets tiresome. Graphics are even worse than Nuclear Waste in Magic Caves. Playing the part ot a ball (!) you roll around each level using the sliding platforms and lifts to collect a potion. Keys open doors and reveal secret passages. Magic Caves looks very simitar to a game I once wrote in Spectrum basic! It took me half an hour and I didn't bother saving it. There's nothing here to make you want to come back for more. The besl ot the lot is Blokade. It's well programmed and simple to tackle. Played against the clock, you have to change all Ihe blocks on screen to the target colour by sliding the panels. When a block is surrounded with the correct colour you can change it and goon to the next. Playing Blokade soon puts a great strain on your eyes and the monotonous gameplay will only keep you going for a tew games. M ARIf ' d h 0Pe d on e 01 lh e ,ou r games would be IvIrtn W mildly playable, but no, they're all dull. Graphics on each are very simplistic albeit colourful. Even at a budget price I would consider them all poor value for money. 21% Bombed Out is graphically similar to Blokade with its neatly drawn sliding platforms and a timer to beat. You have to collect ail the bonus Hags and get to a bomb before it explodes. The playing area has skulls to avoid (they're deadly) and watch out tor disappearing blocks! Mind Games I is a collection ot below average games lhat look cheap when you can see what the Sam Coup6 can really do.

The game is played in a basic platforms and ladders style with the added complication of having to collect and use icons to move about You have to gather up energy pods so thai Sam can escape from this crazy world he has landed in. A world inhabited by weird and wonderful creatures, all excellently animated and coloured Graphics are brilliant colourtul and cheerful. The cartoon style ot the sprites wilt appeal to everyone, especially fans ot cutesey graphics like me. Icons dotted around the multitude ol screens allow Sam to progress further, cushions let him fall large distances, big jumps give him twait for it!) bigger jumps, shields surround htm with deadly fireballs and keys open the doors. I found the game quite challenging the restricted head room you have on most screens makes liming a necessity when lumping the creatures The totly tune playing throughout the game and the hunger to see more will keep you coming back tor more, and more! Sam Multipack 1 is a must tor all Sam Coupe owners Sam Strikes Out' is definitely the best of the two games with Futureball jusl a bonus lor buying the pack.

You have to compete in ten gruelling events as well as having to endure a training session complete with sit ups, squat thrusts and weight lifting. As an added annoyance you also have the choice of lour pairs ol trainers to wear. If you choose the wrong ones your performance will be seriously impaired. Events include 100m, high jump, discus, pole vault, 100m hurdles and long jump. Each event needs tots of practice to get right. The pole vault is probably the worst as you have to judge exactly when to start moving the pole down, get it wrong and Daley could have a nasty accident.t> The graphics are very goo'd* throughout, especially the training section which has a couple of clever touches.

You're the only one who can save the city Irom being blown into tiny pieces by Mad Dog Jackson . He's the big boss ot the meanest gang ever and has planted bombs all over the city's most treasured buildings and demanded one million pounds lo disarm them. Can the city be saved from total destruction? You're the only one who can answer that question armed with nothing but your trusty atomiser. Atom Ant, like other games in Hi-tec's Hanna-Barbera series, has superbly drawn and animated sprites and highly detailed scenery. The graphics on the buildings and enemies are nothing short of brilliant and Atom Anl zips around them with ease. I just wish there had been a little more colour. The objective is to collect all the bombs and chuck em in the atomiser, the higher the level olplay the more bombs have to be defused. Icons, when picked up, are helpful: an alarm clock gives you a minute of extra lime, a helmet protects your head and loaves of bread are nice to munch on.

The idea is to blast everything in sight — your only worry being to protect the dragon's head. A hit there and he blows up into space debris. This is where the armoured tail comes into play. It can be used as a protective shield around the sensitive head. What would a shoot-'Iemup be without the option of building up your weapons into bigger and brighter things?

NICK n every Bond movie I there s an evil megalomaniac who attempts to take over the world —here it s Karl Stromberg. a bit of a fruit cake. who. from his underwater base Atlantis, has hatched a cunning plan! He steals two nuclear submarines, one British, the Other Russian, and with them plans to destroy New York and's up to Bond and beautiful Russian spy Major Anya Amasova to save the world (again). The game is split into six parts, each a scene from the movie. The first has Bond and Anya driving along the open road to meet Q. Bond s white Lotus is viewed from above (in true Spy Hunter style), and the idea is to collect 3s many ol the Q tokens as you can whilst avoiding the obstacles. The Lotus is armoured but repeated knocks and crashes result in a loss of a life By visiting a dock hallway through this scene the Lotus transforms into a speedboat and you race it up the river avoiding jettys. mooring posts and trigger-happy Stromberg goons. In scene two various vehicles hinder progress but 0 s van is at hand Board it and you can buy additional weapons with your collected Q tokens. Make sure you get the jobbie to convert the Lotus into a submarine because you re underwater in level three where Bond and Anya are attacked by a variety ol underwater vehicles as they head lor Atlantis. The tinal three levels see Bond blowing the doors to the control room where the nuclear subs are being directed Bond is perched atop a surveillance camera whilst you. as Anya. must shoot the soldiers trying to stop Bond. Scene live sees Bond and his jetski heading lor Atlantis to save Anya who has been kidnapped by Stromberg. whilst the sixth and final scene has Bond shooting it out with Stromberg and his sinister henchman Jaws The movie is one of my favourite Bond romps, and so I had high hopes lor the game. The verdict... well it does have ils good points, the attention to detail is one. Both the moving and static sprites are nicely detailed, though scrolling is a little on the juddery side. The gameplay is tough which may put some people off. Also the sound is a bit of a letdown, the decent tune at the start makes way lor a lew bog standard blasting effects during play, li s a good Bond adaption, but doesnt lop Licence To Kill for action!.

The first sections are very similar in look to the age old Spy Hunter but. sadly, not as playable The most annoying thing about Ihe game is that changing direction as you are driving along makes the car slide Ihe opposite way. almost always into Ihe ditch or oft a bridge!

Let's see how it measures up to the driving game formula, shall we? Okay then.roads. Yes, it's got four of them; real European racetracks too! Curving and twisting all over the place — distinct lack of hills though. Cars? Oh yeah — plenty! Well, in the main competition anyway — you get the road to yourself in the practice round and your finishing time in this round determines your grid position in the race. What's next, erm... Speed! Lots of that too. You can drive at around 120 mph but the car spins out of control on sharp corners at this speed, keeping between 60 and 80 is okay. Next — controls: accelerate, decelerate, left and right. It's simple tbut it takes a few goes to geet used to the sensitivity. Do (the vehicles look like earss or squashed dustbins? Nlol a squashed dustbin in slight, the car graphics are gtood but not animated very mutch — turn left and the graphitic suddenly switches fronm straight ahead to 45 degrees, not bad really. There ss scenery along the roaodside and just the right amoount too! It doesn't look cluttereed but going off road is hazar rdous. Graphics are black anod while so it's clear but lookss so very dull. And finally — is i it any good? Hummmm. it's c okay, just not very exciting.

As the manager of a struggling fourth division team you must lead your men to Ihe top ol the first division and try to win the FA Cup. But to stari with Wembley is far away. You control the game with a set of ten icons — they include facilities to train players, buy and sell players, view the league tables and perhaps most importantly of all. check the bank balance. Your first consideration is to train your players, with this underway you can choose what type of talent scout, physio and coach you want. These go from useless to excellent (depending on price): go for average at first, you can always change later. Hi*Tec Software • £2.9 9 T he planet Poseidon is having temperature problems.

The screens are simple with nothing new and exciting to spur you on. but the animation on the hero of the game is out ot this world! Or would be if the locations didn't have a roof to them. When you jump the character shoots up the screen at a hellish rate. It's Impossible to judge successfully where he's going to land, you just have to hope for the best. Poseidon - Planel Eleven is nothing new but it's a reasonable arcade adventure. NICK RATING When your lads are fit to play clicking on the Match icon brings up the results of the day's play. Gate receipts are then tallied and wages can be paid. Be.carelul, if the board think you're spending all their cash without results you'll be kicked out of the club. Ten quid for a soccer manager game is expensive, especially with many similar games available on budget labels. So this is really for keen manager types. Don t expect much in the way of action, but a lot ol text screens: this is after all'that style ot game. Still, despite the plethora ol very similar product available, soccer management does seem popular, and this version compares favourably. MARK 50% RATING SOLAR EMPIRE Players Premier • £2.9 9 • W ith a plot lo enslave the entire galaxy, the evil Dargons must be stopped as they invade ours! Dargon Ringworlds (like a planet on a spaceship) are sent in to conquer populated worlds and then use them as a base to conquer other worlds. You have to stop em quick before they take over every ruddy planet! Ringworlds are destroyed with a photon torpedo. Then, to liberate an occupied planet you have to capture a shooting star and steer or tow it towards the planet. Release the star onto the planet and it destroys the Dargons and liberates that world. Oh, and there are loads of alien thingies all over the place to shoot too. Gameplay is essentially an eight-way scrolling shoiotem-up but with a yucty intellectual aspect' thrrown in. There are billions {quite a few —Ed) of dials to keiep an eye on and to succeed imust be followed correctly, tfte status panels (on the left and right hand sides) are continually blasting you with information which takes away most of the fun you might have in carelessly blasting everything! Solar Empire is a funny mix of gameplay— you want to play It fast and furiously, when you should be playing it a bit strategically. Except you can't play it at all on the +2A, because it's not compatible. RICHARD RATING m Players Premier • £2.9 9 • F our outlaws are on the loose and must be caught. Seeing the huge rewards you take up the challenge to track 'em down and give em a showdown at high noon. Outlaw is played in a very similar fashion to the cowboy shoot-'em-ups that used to proliferate in the arcades. The playing area scrolls towards you and you're free lo run your gunslinger around the area pumping lead into the seemingly neverending army of opponents. Obstacles also litter the route and crashing into one loses you one of your lives. But do look out for helpful objects: there are extra lives, exlra speed, weaponry, ammo and more. Outlaw is a difficult game to master: the main problem is that the ground is speckled so it's almost impossible to see enemy fire, or your own bullets for that mailer! There have been a few games of this type before and none have worked especially well on the Speccy. Outlaw is pretty much the same as the rest. A good looking game but when it comes to payability it's a greenhorn (ie: not much cop).
