In the first game, CRICKET CRAZY, you are the Manager of an England cricket team, due to fly out to a remote West Indian island, to give the local native team a game of cricket.

You have some good players in your team and they all play their part in this text adventure with graphics. You start In the plane when a hijacker comes on board. It is a good job that you have got some good throwers of the ball because you have to get one of you to bowl the hijacker out before you can get started. You've got Gooch, Lamb, Catting, Botham and Edmonds In your squad, so you do have some useful players!

You eventually get in the air and over the island where you make a crash landing away from the town and it's cricket ground. After many problems and much wheeling and dealing with the local inhabitants you eventually arrive at the cricket ground, when the game of cricket actually takes place in part two of the adventure.

In the second game, CUP-FINAL FRENZY, you are the Manager of a down and out football club which by a stroke of luck and good fortune has won its way through to the Cup Final. The Club is just about broke, but having managed to get them so far you are going to do your best to get them to win the final. You manage to pay many of their bills but have no money left to get their dirty shirts, shorts and socks washed after the
last game. Your laundry lady has just refused flat to wash them if you don't pay her last bill; no more credit and that's definite.

Well they can't play In the nude, so there's only one thing left, and that is you'll have to get scrubbing yourself. You give the kit a good scrub and put it to dry on a heater. Well, I'll leave you to guess what happens next?

It's an interesting and amusing story up to Charles Sharpe's usual standard, with many good graphics.

The third graphics adventure with a sporting theme is GOLD OR GLORY, which takes you to the Olympic Games as Manager of the English javelin team, with one of your team with the somewhat familiar name of Tessa. You are staying at your hotel when you soon begin to suspect that the food of your team is being tampered with due to a general lack of lustre In the competitors and a general unwell feeling. If they are going to get back to their former energy, you'll have to look jolly quick and do something about it, after all you are in charge!

You had better have a quick word with the coach and get a doctor to do something about the problem. Is someone adding drugs to their food, if not, what is causing the trouble? Unless you find the answer to the problem, your girls don't stand a chance of winning the gold.

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
