The latest version of the raved golf game from US Gold is called Leaderboard Tournament. It has four new courses and other small improvements.
The new courses are in the same mould as those in the previous version: no bunkers, no trees, a fairway of ground, a rough of water. Still, some of the shapes are difficult to play. But Chris Boothman reports that the constant blue and green hurts his eyes.
It is still just as slow to draw the screen, but they incorporated the age-old method of drawing the background screen and then flipping it to the front. Putting is a bit slower, but not overly so. It may appeal to anyone new to Leaderboard but doesn't offer much else.
Much more exciting is the prospect of World Class Leaderboard. We've seen an early demo of this and hold on to your hats it's got trees, bunkers, different shades of grass colour and overhead views of the hole. We don't know when a review copy will be available, but when it is this could be the ultimate sports simulation for the Amstrad. "Can't wait," says CB.
