This is another of those small pcoket books that Virgin seem to churn out in such large numbers. Still, at least they ARE still churning out the books for us, which is more than a lot of publishers are doing these days. New books for gamers are becoming increasingly hard to find on the shelves.

This book contains 6 programs for typing in, all adventures. They are: The Explorer, The Patriarch, 3D Maze, Into the Unknown, Gotham Runner and Gold Nugget.

Unfortunately the idesa are not very original. We have all wandered around the countryside looking for our princess (though personally I'd rather have a prince) and we have all spent ages trying to get out of mazes or around fairytale lands before. In fact in The Patriarch the authors actually
say, ‘As many adventure cliches as possible have been squeezed into this program' – an idea which is Ok for one or two games I'd say, but not the whole book.

In the third game, 3-D Maze, you are charged wltht he task of finding the Magic Phllospher's Stone that will change any base metal into gold but which has been cunningly hidden in a maze. The next game, Into the Unknown, makes use of the randomising function on the amstrad by creating a fairytale landscape that will never be the same two games running. This time you have to find ten pieces of silver before you reach the Citadel. And so it goes.

The print is nice and dark, so you shouldn't have too much trouble keying In, although I thought the instructions could have been a bit fuller. Still, it's only £2.99 and not too bad a book for beginners.

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.
