MIKE SINGLETON (1985)

MIKE SINGLETON from Mersey is 34 years old and taught English in a secondary school. Three years ago he went freelance as a programmer.

He became interested in computing in 1980. After six months he decided to learn 6502 machine code. He wrote his first game. Space Ace, in machine code, which he sold to the now deceased software house Pet-soft. It sold around 100 copies. "The royalties in those days were pathetic, you couldn't last a week on them."

He then wrote a number of games for different companies – one of his most successful being Snake Pit for Postern, written for the Pet and later converted to the Spectrum.

His big break came in 1983 when he was approached by Beyond Software to write a game for them. Nine months later Lords of Midnight was launched. Doomdark's Revenge followed and Mike is at present working on another game for Beyond.

After Space Ace, publishers have always approached him. His advice, "If you've got faith in your own abilities, go for royalties rather than a salary."

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.
