dr. strange music
Please order Disc 2 (APD283) when ordering this disc. Well presented
music player with 10 very different pieces of music. The screen has
benn made to look like a Compact Disc player and has lots of buttons for
doing various things. The VU meter and Volume Indicator is also very
nice. Good disc.
Tunes are:- Bacteria 1-7, equalise, heavyballad, revolution,
This is a very well presented music disc. It features the most
origional VU meter I have seen so far in the AMOS PD library. The bars
move around on the screen whilst changing length in time to the music
and also change colour. There are 7 pieces of music chosen by using the
keyboard: Monolithik, Softoonz, Multimsuic, Bright Eyes, Softcred,
Calgames and R-Tek. There is also a nice loading sequence. Lots of
useful routines in this music program.
eko's music disc
Please order Disc 2 (APD290) when ordering this disc. I found it
difficult at first to believe that this program had been written and
COMPILED in AMOS but it has! There are 22 pieces of 8 Channel music on
tese 2 discs from various groups e.g. Kefrens, Scoopex etc. When you
choose a piece you also get the groups logo on the screen which is a
nice touch. Shame the program is compiled though! Very good.
The music titles are:-
axel, dawn, dots, dynamic, flower, future, GWLV7, klaas, metal, steel,
sun, tonight, ba1, Beast, Breeze, cluster, crazy, dark, Madness, Moon,
Please order APD311 (Disc 2) when ordering this disc. There are 6 music
tracks spread over these two discs all selectable from a nice menu. The
tracks are Tied Up, Infraction, Galaxy II, KGB House, Watch This and
Popcorn. The program is compiled so you can't look at the source code
which is a shame!
Music Mania is a well presented music player that... well... plays
music and thats about it! There are other options on the main program
menu but there is also a note saying that they are not on the disc for
Another music disc but this one requires AMOS to run and also needs 1mb.
There are nine different tunes on these discs all of which are fairly
good. The music player/demo isn't bad but isn't much to look at.
Music is:- carvup, cream, cryingspy, silhouete, uponme, blue, breath,
decade, jungle, mod4, short, urock,

superior AMIGA fonts added by Spadge. These can be cut into bobs and
used in AMOS. All fonts are displayed in a slide show format with some
iff picture disc 4
A selection of IFF pictures from the Newsflash archives which in the
words of Martyn Brown makes it "incredibly trendy with loads of street
cred". Actually there are some stunning pics on this disc including a
lovely kitten in a boot, a giraffe, Jack Nicholson as the Joker, and a
tree frog - twenty pictures in all plus music.
fun school 3 sprites
This disc was put into the Public Domain by Mandarin Software. It is a
collection of the sprites used in the Fun School 3 program.
nik williams broadcast
Contains some stunning pictures as an example from the NIK WILLIAMS
BROADCAST COMPUTER PICTURES LIBRARY. Please send more!
Please order APD202 (Disc 2) also. This is a collection of digitised
pictures of a very high standard. The disc contains some stunning
pictures in three categories. One contains brilliant pictures of
animals, section 2 is entitled FANTASY and contains some really good
quality pictures. The third section is a favourite of the kids as it
contains pictues of American Wrestlers and they are currently big fans
of Hulk Hogan who, unfortunately, dosen't feature in this slideshow.
Some of the FANTASY section may not be suitable for young children
although I didn't find anything offensive about them - it's a matter of

Pukadu, 4-Way Lynx and Work and Play.
Deja Vu Slides 2
Disc contains screens from AMOS Assembler, Word Factory, Go-Getter,
Hypnotic Land, Play It Safe, Arc Angel's Shapes and Pictures. Gives you
an idea of the quality of licenseware before you buy.
Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation Demo. Press return when it's loaded to
get the music going. Lisen to the music and look at the black and white
digitised pictures of her. If Michael Jackson has had so much plastic
surgery as the papers claim how does Janet manage to look so much like
him? Sorry, I digress, this demo will probably appeal to Janet Jackson
Digi Demo Slides
Technical Fred Software
This is an example of digitised pictures from the Technical Fred
Digitising Service presented in a nice slideshow program written in
AMOS. Very high picture quality. Impressive.
Digi Slide Show
A Digi-Slideshow of 10 colour and black & white pictures for you to
enjoy. Mostly on a fantasy theme.

Totally Amos Art#1
This disk has been compiled from contributions sent in by readers of
Totally Amos. The screens include pictures, sprites, tiles etc.
This is volume one of two so far produced. There are 2 stories on this
disk, Percy goes to the dentist and Percy goes shopping. They are short
stories told in comic book style. Might be useful for those who want to
contruct something similar.
The Cyborg Carrot
This is a grisley tale of a cybornetic carrot told in comic book style.
Hard to describe, really!
Percy's Adventures 2
Volume two in the series of everyday adventures of Percy. Here he visits
the doctor and also has a haircut.
==================== DEMOS ================
Amos Big Demo V4
The demo written by Peter Hickman to show off AMOS. Although originally
written on an early version of AMOS it is still quite impressive. The
disc also includes an extract from Newsflash - an interview with
microman's ball demo
Microman's Music Sensitive Balls comprises 15 pieces of music along with
some dancing balls. The source code is accessible so you can see just
how it was done. If you've got 1/2 meg you lose out on one of the
arc angel demo
Have you ever seen a breakdancing bunny? No! Well neither have I but
this demo contains a bunny who stamps his feet in time to the music and
a frantic fiddler amongst others. Well put together for a first demo.
fun school III demo
The third in Database Software's excellent Fun School series. Just sit
back and let teddy show you all three age groups in this new package.
Shows how useful AMOS can be in promoting software in demo form.
pink goes ape
The opening sequence of this scrolling demo features an animated Pink
Panther plus the Pink Panther theme. Lots of good music accompanying
the scrolling message on the split screen.
arc angel demo 3
Is there no stopping him? This one is BRIGHT!! All I said was that the
text in the PINK demo was a bit dismal and he presented me with this!!
Not a bad scrolling demo with some useful routines.
weird science demo
High quality digitised graphics from Back To The Future II. David is
willing to digitise video pictures of your choice for the measly sum of
£2.50 a disc. When you've seen the quality on this disc you'll snatch
his hand off!!
Curos And Stavros 1
Curos and Stavros Mega Demo II is a neat demo with some very useful
Please order APD082 (Disc 2) also. This is a two disc music player. It
has been featured in the screen shots on one of Mandarin Software's new
benson demo I
This is the winning demo in Mandarin Software's competition. Excellent
amos demo II
This is the demo that Mandarin were displaying at the Computer Shopper
Show. Contains some very useful routines.
Weird Science II
WEIRD SCIENCE DEMO II: BIRDS OF PREY is another collection of beautiful
pictures from David's digitising service. This time containing some
stunning pictures of birds.
panthorus demo 1
Please order APD113 (Disc 2) also. This is a two disc demo released to
celebrate Panthorus' first birthday. Nice demo with some good routines.
Music player that shows off some digitised pictures from PREDATOR. Neat
Excellent demo of bob routines.
benson demo II
Another good demo with some excellent routines. Well put together.
dreamers disc mag
New disc magazine put together using AMOS which also contains an AMOS
cybornetics demo 2
Access to the 7 demos on this disc is from a simple menu. My favourite
is ROB'S SIMPSONS RIP OFF. There's also a simple animation - gory!!
Yet another quality demo from Syntex. Superb graphics on this one.
Panthorus Demo 2
A musicplayer to play your AMOS music. Press fire on the joystick to
change the music.
curos & stavros I
Please order APD169 (Disc 2) also. This is a two disc demo. Music
player with an animated bunny on one of the songs.
gaz & matt's demo
gaz & matt
Please order APD186 (Disc 2) also. One meg is required for this two
disc demo. Some excellent routines.
fizzy pop demo
Please order APD194 (Disc 2) and APD195 (Disc 3) also. This is a THREE
disc demo containing some well REMmed routines aimed at AMOS beginners.
Xenomorphs & Fractalmania are the two parts in this demo. They contain
some good routines which may be of use to other AMOS programmers. Good
graphics and music.
robots megademo 1
Lots of different bob routines. This is another well presented demo by
madness week demo
Please order APD208 (Disc 2) also. Disconnect DF1: for some reason,
best known to the programmers. This is an excellent demo once more from
Syntex. This demo is the one used by Mandarin (or Europress Software as
they now wish to be known) in their most recent ad. It's the one that
is reminiscent of Shadow of the Beast. Control the "Beast" with the
joystick and enter different parts of the demo by going through
fanatix demo 1
Please order APD210 (Disc 2) also. This two disc demo contains some
good routines. The group responsible for it wants to get in touch with
other AMOS demo groups so drop them a line if you're into coding demos.
Sadly this is the last disc mag from DREAMERS. They also wish me to
point out that their PD library is no longer operating. Could be a
collector's item this one.
hanissis 5 demo 1
shock wave & pinnicle
This group doesn't usually program in AMOS but they have released this
disc so that you can use the code in your own demos. I was very
impressed with the quality of this demo. It contains some (not
"proper") 3D vector routines, use the mouse to zoom in and out. There's
some useful code on this disc.
fanatix megademo 2
Please order APD217 (Disc 2) also. Please note: THIS DISC REQUIRES TWO
DRIVES. Good graphics and effects in this demo. Nice use of bobs and I
particularly liked the end sequence.
robots hq demo
Please order APD228 (Disc 2) also. The "welcome" part of this disc is
to introduce a new member. The next part of the demo is a music player
with 3 decent songs. Graveyard Beats by Paul Harthen, Acieed! by Ian
Faichnie (new member) and Revolution by Paul Harthen. F2 gets you into
the "HQ" part. You are presented with a picture of Robot's HQ and
invited to touch different parts of the screen to see what happens.
Press on the brain for a laugh.
fanatix music 1
Please order APD240 (Disc 2) also. If you have an external drive please
disconnect. It is a music player with all the normal facilities, fast
forward, rewind etc. and a cassette turning when the music plays.
Music on the disc is Kilikanzaro - Crusaders, Imaginary Woman -
Cryptoburners, This Was The Dream - T.H.R., Hip For Da Hoop -
Slipstream, Torture - S.A.E., Scoopex Theme - Scoopex, Toxic - Anthrox,
True Faith - 4-Mat, Dragon - Escape/Outlaws, Unknown!! - Securtiate and
hanissis v demo 2
shockwave and pinnacle
I really like what this group is trying to do for AMOS. Unlike Syntex
demos all their code is unlocked. Their idea is to help improve the
standard of AMOS demos. In this one they challenge other demo groups to
do better. Contains bob routines to blow your socks off - well I think
they're good anyway. Unlimited bobs with a new direction effect that I
haven't seen before. Unlimited bobs with a bubble effect. Very smooth
multi-layer parallax starfields. Great music too. More please.
fanatix demo 3
Please order APD262 (disc 2) when ordering this. First off there's a 2D
line demo, very pretty. Then there's the equaliser bars with music from
Cryptic UK. Rotating scroller demo conatained a lot of text that I felt
obliged to censor. Sorry about that lads but I won't publish demos
containing four letter words. The next bit is called 'Star Harrier'
which is fairly self-explantory. Then we come to the star of the show
'Unlimited Bobs' that you can control with the mouse. There are some
excellent effects achieved in this demo I just wish they'd stop slagging
off the PD library. I do my best.
fanatix demo 4
Please order APD264 (disc 2) when ordering this disc. Would you believe
it in this demo they are complaining about being censored!! I give up!!
The first bit demonstrates the smooth hardware scrolling that AMOS is
capable of. The second part contains a fast moving game of Breakout
controlled with the mouse. Next bit has a very smooth dual scroller.
Another good demo from Fanatix packed with interesting routines and many
Simple demo disc containing all the usual demo routines including star
fields, vu meters and nice music. There is a little animation of a
ninja at the bottom of the screen which is quite nice. Nothing really
Amos 3D Demo
I suggest you buy this demo before you buy Amos 3D as this will show you
just what can be done with the new Amos module. This demo is absolutely
fantastic and all the graphics are so smooth in motion you would think
they were produced in machine code. This demo is very good and even if
you aren't going to buy Amos 3D at least buy this to see what you will
vic reeves slides
This disc is absolutely jam packed with digitised pictures and sounds
from the popular Vic Reeves Big Night Out television program. Such
famous lines as "You wouldn't let it lie" are included but it must be
stated that non Vic Reeves fans will not like this disc!
Cybornetics Demo 3
The demo starts off with a fake Guru message that I must admit had me
fooled for a short while (very short). There are 6 parts to this demo
all which can be chosen off a menu. Move Ya Mouse - use the mouse to
move different objects around, very good. Line Game 2 - this is a nice
version of the old light cycles game for up to 4 players. Matt's Demo -
simple stuff with a bouncing CYBORNETIC. Head Anim - strange animation
of an axe chopping someone in half. Head Anim 2 - another weird
animation of someone being shot. Strange indeed! Rob's Demo - very
nice graphics, lots of nice screen wipes and strange effects. Good demo
Not really a demo disc this but a collection of programs brought
together and labelled BEER MANIA. WasterPaint - nice painting program
with lots of option. MandelMaster - a full featured mandelbrot creating
program. Black Gold Demo - bob routines with a big scroller and large
vu meter. Simon - good version of the old classic "Simon" game. Good
Fracgen II Slides
This is a slideshow containing pictures created with Fracgen II
(LPD036). These pictures are absolutely fantastic and if this does not
convince you that you should buy Fracgen II then nothing will.
dark ages demo
Please order APD276 (Disc 2) when ordering this disc. PLEASE NOTE THIS
IS A COMPILED DEMO - source code not included. You won't believe the
quality of this demo, it will take your breath away. The music,
graphics (in fact everything) are completely unbelievable. The starting
scenes are completely flawless. This 2 disc demo features paralax
scrolling, vector graphics, great text effects, plasma screens, very
large scrollers (no jerk what so ever), starfields and much much more.
This demo is a MUST!
This is the latest demo from Fanatix. It contains some very nice
routines and must rate as this groups best demo to date. The demo
includes hypnotic rings(!), balls made from points bouncing around,
freaky screen patterns, fast and smooth bobs, cycling dot patterns and
bob flags. Purely fantastic (or Fanatix)!
Weird Science III
Another quality slideshow from the digitising firm Weird Science. This
time the pictures are under the heading of Born To Be Free and are a
collection of wildlife pictures. All of them are HAM mode and they are
all top quality.
BOUNCE AROUND MUSIC DEMO. This is a simple demo, nothing very
spectacular, featuring a starfield, copper bars, ball vu meter and a
very slow scrolly. Click the left button to load a different piece of
music. The music isn't that bad and some of it is quite nice.
fanatix megademo 5
Another 5 part megademo by Fanatix that has got very good music,
graphics and effects but unfortunately is COMPILED. The demo includes
sinus scrolling, line drawing effects and other routines. Shame you
can't get at them though!
THIS DEMO IS COMPILED. There are 6 parts to this megademo and they
include an impressive unlimited bobs demo, some nice music and graphics,
good scrolling routine, bouncing letters and a bouncing ball demo.
Nothing very spectacular and it is a shame it can't be used for routines
as it ist compiled.
Patrik And Ronny
This is a strange demo and involves a strange piece of music and a
rather plain screen apart from two big boxes containing digitised
pictures of two men whose mouths open in time to the music. Nothing
amazing but certainly different!
Syntex again show off their superb scrolling talents in this demo named
`Judgement Day'. How do they do it?
A disc full of Syntex goodies to amze you. These boys really show us
what AMOS can do.
A Step Forward
A demo showing various graphic effects from scrolly messages to screens
with plasma displays. Plenty to look at for ideas.
Powerbase V2.0 Demo
This is a demo version of Amivisions database on the LPD range it allows
you to try out the program before you buy. Also gives news of other
Zenn Soundbox II
This is the second soundbox from Zenn. There is a good display screen
with Vumeter bars bouncing to the beat. Options include changing the
tune, adjusting the volume & turning the LED on/off. There are nine
tunes, SAMAURI, WALKER, LAMENT, FAST BEAT, FAST TRAIN, MACHINE,
ARMALYTE, ARTAARTA and COUNTDOWN.
This demo is pure Amos Basic, it does not use Amos 3-D or the Compiler.
There are some nice 3-D effects accompanied by good music. There are
also some other interesting effects in this demo.
This offering from Fanatix is a slideshow of eight lovely pictures on
the theme of space. it includes spaceships and planet landscapes.
These pictures are accompanied by a sinewave scroller of text telling
you about the disc. The End Demo sends greetings, thanks and messages
to Fanantix contacts.
Needs APD377. This really is a MEGAdemo with 2 discs crammed full of
interesting demos. These include Unlimited Bobs 2,Full metal
vectors,How I won the war, (quite amusing, shows Sadam and John Major
'talking' to each other in time to the music), Lights Alive, Psycho
Bobs, Copperblitz, Multiscrol 3 (very effective) and Cute Fish which is
a great little game, you are a goldfish who has to catch food whilst
avoiding the shark. To end there is an End Part demo. Well recommended
for Demo freaks. Source code included. N.B. THIS DEMO NEEDS TWO
Structured Insanity II
This single disc demo from Fanatix needs all the memory it can get, so
disable those drives! The source code for this collection is included
on the disc as a crunched Ascii file to be decrunched with PowerPacker.
The demos include Plasma mind blowers, 3-D vectors, unlimited
bobs,stencil vectors, filled shapes, 3-D vectors (need Specs), MEGA
scroller (enormous!), vector bobs, Flag vector and pretty maths
Rainbow Educational Demo
This is a demo of three programs released by Rainbow Educational
Software. If you are looking for lower priced educational software,
then take a look at this demo to get an idea of what Rainbow has on
Purple Haze Demo
This demo contains various effect to amaze you! There is a radar
screen, plasma effects done by cycling, 3-D vectors, music, bobs and
more! Source included, interesting disk.
This little demo shows some interesting screens which could be useful
for beginners to look at. Smooth demo well presented.
This demo is by Shockwave (aka Nick Simpson of Hanissis V fame). This
demo is definately up to the high standards of his previous work and is
a must for avid Demo collectors. There is a scrolling commentary
throughout to let you know what's going on, and you can exit any section
by clicking the mouse button, which is a very handy feature that other
demo writers should use! First of all we have some new scroll ideas the
first winds its way around the screen, the second can only be described
as stretchy and bouncy, next comes a sine scroller. The Cubic logo
appears next as a huge wavy word. The next section is dedicated to
Sharon, who no doubt has to share Nick's free time with his Amiga! Also
in the demo are pixel dot effects, a picture, a joystick controlable
chess floor and mind-boggling circles. Recommended.
This is the author's first demo. It contains routines that might be of
use to the less experienced demo writers. Contains an amusing Mr Pain
charcter, music and scrollers.

Needs disk 427 as well. This demo takes us back to the Golden Age of
the Speccy and the C64, which for those of you who are younger than some
of us, were the computers that were around before the Amiga!!!! Look
out for the mock Guru Box which pops up, it caught me out good & proper!
The After Time Demo
This disk also contains 'Secret Data Base' which is written by Marco
Pinto from Portugal. This is a little database which you may find
interesting. Back to the Demo! This is a source only demo which tells
a story about Life on Earth after man wiped himself off the planet.
This is Andy's first demo, it is a bit jerky in places, but this is
because it is being run through Amos. Some interesting scrollers and
effects for you to look at.
Zirus Megademo 1
This is a four part demo accessed via a central menu using the Function
keys. Paul apologises for this 'rough and ready' menu but he's been
busy. The demo gives you a bouncy scrolling message, pretty dot
patterns (which Paul credits to another PD demo which he can't remember)
There is a scroller which is the height of the screen and moves really
smoothly. The end part shows the credits and a long bouncy message
scroller. Source is provided as an ascii file which you can load as
Merge Ascii into the Amos editor. You will need Ctext to run it from
This is the first demo from Futurize, a Finnish demo group who plan to
give you lots more Amos programs. Future productions include a disk
magazine which will be sent when it is complete. Source is provided,
but you will need Amos 3-D to run it from the editor, although, of
course, anyone may runthe Compiled version. The demo includes various
3-D routines, an add for Futurize's mag, Heavy Fuel, a couple of mind
blowing screen effects, a nice whirlpool dots picture and ends with
credits and greetings. Smooth work from Finland!
One of the few Demo writers who will provide source for budding demoists
to look at is Nick 'Cubic' Simpson. Take a look at this one and see how
all the demo effects are created. This single disk demo runs for over
20 minutes (if you read all the scrollers!)
This is Cubic's answer to FANATIX Megademo 7. It contains lots of
effects for you to look at as well as the source code so that you can
see how the effects were created. The title may be suggestive, but the
contents are good, clean Amos coding!!!
Tumpty & Firework Alphabet
This is a demo version of an educational program which the author will
be selling herself, full details are on the disk. This is a letter
recognition game and we are here given one section to play. The correct
responses are rewarded by a firework display. A very promising idea.
Mach II Demo
This is the second demo from Icky, the first, Freestyle is in the GPD
section. This one contains most of the source code used for the demo so
that you can see how it was created. Karl Roberts, aka Icky, has spoken
to us and has said thhat he is willing to help other demo writers. Find
his address on the disk.
THIS IS A 2 DISK DEMO so I'm sorry but it costs the same as 2 seperate
disks. The source code is included on the disk, but we have been warned
that it needs more than 1 meg of memory to be run from the Amos editor.
Lots of great routines are included as well as a shoot'em up game.
Fun With Cubby Demo
This is a demo version of Aaron's Licenseware program of the same name
which is to be found in CLR Licenseware. This demo gives you access to

================ AMOS GAMES WITH SOURCE =================
Hunt for treasure in this clever educational co-ordinates game.
Excellent sound and graphics make this game fun for everyone from 2 to
A little short on documentation but great fun if you do the same as we
did. Two teams, a few drinks and cheat like mad! The questions were
too hard for Martyn Brown, I reckon he might be a bit too young for some
of them 'cos they gave us "over thirties" no problem. You can always
look at the code for answers anyway if you have AMOS.
Remove 2nd drive with 1/2 meg memory. This is a personal favourite of
mine. Very playable and addictive version of the popular
Arkanoid/Breakout game. You even get a level designer so you can edit
this game to your heart's content. Highly recommended.
reversi & snakes
Reversi is an absolutely brilliant version of Othello. I can't stop
Quite a nice little game in which you collect the treasure, blast the
monsters and find the key for the next level. Also on the disc by the
same programmer is a slideshow and demo. Recommended.
Very unusual two player game with excellent documentation. A futuristic
board game which has you actually moving about a maze.
This disk has corrupted, and we have lost the source code! Does anyone
have a very early version we could have a copy of? (write to usual
address, all costs repaid!)
Jigsaw puzzles to solve with three levels of difficulty. Good graphics
and well presented.
P-u-a-p Data Disc
This is a data disc containing more jigsaw puzzles. The disc requires
APD103 - Pick-Up-A-Puzzle. (unavailable at present)
Two disc game. Put the picture back together within a time limit. Very
hypnotic effects as the pieces float around the screen. Needs APD106.
Very nice game. Keeps the kids occupied for ages! Had good reviews in
A variation on the classic "Bomber" game with some good graphics and
amusing touches. Had good reviews in the magazines. Plus users please
note: Re-Boot after reading the instructions.
What better way to show off the capabilities of AMOS TOME than to create
a playable game with it! If you're thinking of buying AMOS TOME, or you
have already got a copy, then this disc is a must. If you don't have
AMOS then the disc is worth having for the game itself.
the wooden ball
This game is Shareware. It is a futuristic ball game where you have to
score goals against an opponent. You can set the speed at which the
game is played. Very good graphics. Well worth a look. The shareware
fee for this game is disks not money.
simon says & maths
Nice version of SIMON SAYS that is very well presented. SAPCE MATHS has
five difficulty levels depending on the age of the player. The first
level caters for children under five and fifth level for over 16's.
maths calculator 1.1
Also on this disc is VENDREDI, a calendar program by Frederic Simian.
MATHS CALCULATOR is a very well documented program. It covers Area and
Volume, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Fractions and
Percent. Future updates are planned for Trigonometry (I hated that at
school!). On loading you are presented with a menu. You must use the
numbers on the keypad not the keyboard. There is speech when you
complete a set number of questions. Well produced progam that shows
much promise for futher updates. VENDREDI hails all the way from
France. It is an icon driven electronic diary. It includes a calendar
with diary, an address book and a manager for bank accounts. As the
program saves to disk you should use a backup. Nicely presented with
Another quality game from the programmer of REVERSI. This program is
shareware. Tile Trial is a sliding puzzle game. Each puzzle must be
completed within a time limit.
Build up your Spanish vocabulary with this program. Three options are
given - English to Spanish, Spanish to English and a random option.
Program now covers French and German also.
A quiz game with a difference for 1 or 2 players. Set in outer space
the object of the game is to answer the questions correctly. You can
then advance towards your opponents planet. You need to land on its
centre square to win. You have three ships but lose one for every 5
questions you answer wrong. When all three are lost you lose the game.
Amos Games 1
Adam Barker, Creative Software & C.l. Naylar
Four runnable games on one disc. THE HACKER SIMULATOR by Adam Barker is
a simulation of hacking money and using the share markets to make money.
Full documentation is supplied. COMPUTERFAX by Creative Software
Applications is like the pages off a teletext T.V. Users have to alter
and make their own pages. Full documentation. ATISHOO by C. L.
Naylar is a game where you have to match tiles or bricks by design and
colour. Good graphics. MATCH_CARDS by C. L. Naylar is a one or two
player game based on "Concentration". Match the cards.
Creative Software Applications
Match the cards to make a pair. Choice of music and sound effects is
given at the start. It is a two player game with one player using the
cursor keys and player two defining his/her own keys. I wouuld have
preferred the cards a little larger. Neatly put together game.
steve potts & mark cameron
Two games with a fruity theme. FRUIT MACHINE by Steve Potts will run on
1/2 meg machines with DF1: disconnected. Has full documentation on the
disc. Contains all the facilities of a fruit machine, i.e. nudge, hold
and gamble. Good graphics. FRUIT CRUSH by Mark Cameron is a puzzle
game. Full documentation on the disc. Not an easy game. Uses the
Amos Games 2
This disc contains a version of MAHJONG by Fred Quadt, GRUBGRABBER II by
Chris Hurst, SKYBLITZ by Tom and Kev and SPINVADERS by Brian Hills.
The source code for this game is on APD021. A good version of the
popular BOMBER game. Simple enough for children to play.
gobbit & pontoon
c. brown & p. d. wheatstone
GOBBIT by C. Brown. Guide your Psycho Ninja Gobbit (frog?) over all
the squares to change their colour, avoiding bumping into the "baddies"
of course. You begin on a pyramid, now I know this changes to another
shape on Level 2 but I haven't got any futher! Not due to a lack of
skill you understand, more to lack of time. (Pause for big laugh - my
lack of skill with the joystick is well known!). Very well presented.
Good graphics and music. Also on the disc is the old favourite PONTOON.
This version is by P. D. Wheatstone. Mouse controlled with full
documentation. This is the sort of gambling I don't mind 'cos it's not
real money! Play against the computer. You both start with $100 and
have a choice of stake from $1 to $9. All the usual options are there
i.e. twist stick or buy.
A simple game that will work on 1/2 megabyte machines.
This is a shareware program. Quite a good quiz game.
P-u-a-p Data Disc 2
Yet another disc of jigsaw puzzles by Len Tucker for use with his
program Pick-Up-A-Puzzle. Needs APD103.
Jigmania Data 1
This disc is a collection of jigsaw puzzles by Len Tucker. They are for
use in his licenseware game JIGMANIA. This disc needs LPD013 to work.
frantix & m.z.p.p.
There are two AMOS games on this disk - FRANTIX and MUTANT ZOMBIE PSYCHO
PIGS both by Chris Banks.
mastermind & pair up
vidar martinsen & mike wellman
MASTERMIND v2.1 by Vidar Martinsen from Norway. Use right mouse button
to access the menu at the top of the screen so that you can view the
instructions and type the names of the player(s). Good version of the
old classic. PAIR UP by Mike Wellman with music by Luke Miller. Nice
maze game where you have to collect items and avoid baddies. Two good
games on one disc.
NOW ON ONE DISK!!!! You must control Garf using the joystick and guide
him through fourteen levels of the dungeon in search of the captured
Wizard Meredith. Full documentation on the disc.
NOW ON ONE DISK!!!! You have to rescue the pixies. Lots of fighting
goes on in this game with lots of hazards to overcome during your quest.
towers of hanoi
Transfer rings from one pile to another without breaking the few simple
rules of the game. Also on the disc is CAL_MATHS by Shieldsoft to test
you on your maths and CALENDAR which is a utility to give you a screen
display of any year with an option of printing. Very easy to use.
Make-4 & Golf Score
D.R.Tart & Ross Cleary
MAKE-4 by D. R. Tart is a simple version of the old favourite "Connect
4". GOLF SCORE by Ross Cleary is a program to enable the golfers among
you keep track of your rounds of golf.
This is an unusual game in which you have to waggle the joystick to gain
enough power to do karate chops on a wall within a time limit.
bombs from baghdad
Bombs From Baghdad is an unusual game and, unfortunately, quite topical
considering recent events in the Gulf. You are given a briefing at the
beginning of the game in which you are informed that you have to
intercept aircraft which are bent on destroying you. This is a novel
game and although I would have personally preferred a less topical theme
it is, to coin a phrase, all done "in the best possible taste".
Prodigal Son by John Filsak is also on this disc and is a text adventure
based on the Bible. A knowledge of the story is recommended. The
adventue is controlled with the mouse and uses multiple choice
questions. At the top of the screen are the room descriptions and at
the bottom a choice of commands. Nice, simple adventure.
Jigmania Data Disc 2
Needs LPD013 (Jigmania). Len Tucker said that he hoped Jigmania users
would prepare some data discs for the PD and Jim Campey took him up on
it. Well done Jim. Puzzles on this disc are Computerview, Bungalow,
Castle and Tank for the adults and Count Duckula, Hotdogs, Robot, Bully,
Frog and audience for the kids. Well worth adding to your Jigmania
Jigmania Data Disc 3
Needs LPD013 (Jigmania). Another one from Jim Campey. On this disc are
Dredd, Thunderbirds, Garfield, Martian, Alien Legion and Bugs Bunny for
kids and Office, Tournament, Mansion, Honda and Porsche for adults.
Another good disc for Jigmania users.
Also on this disc is CRACK THE CODE by G. Woodcock. In order to play
AMOS BINGO you first need to print out the tickets so access to a
printer is a must. You can then play BINGO in the old fashioned way.
The numbers are called by the computer in a robotic voice (sounds like
most bingo callers to me) and you can play for a "line" or "house". So
it's eyes down for the first number .... and hold down the left mouse
button to make your call. For those of you who find the normal game a
little slow there is a faster version called MANIAC BINGO and it is
fast! CRACK THE CODE is a version of Mastermind with a Hi-Score table
and full instructions. You start by having to guess two colours then
three and so on until you have to guess six. I couldn't get past five
Contains four versions of the old Asteroids game. On version 1 all
graphics are computed rather than drawn by an artist. Disc contains
full documentation. The game is played with a joystick and the
objective is to destroy as many levels of rocks as possible and to
destroy the alien ship when it appears. Treat yourself to a trip down
memory lane or show the kids what games used to be like.
This game is shareware so please adhere to the programmer's request if
you enjoy the program. Your robot is trapped in a strange world whhich
is unstable. To escape the robot must fit 150 micro-chips into his
teleporter. The chips appear randomly along with bombs and holes.
There's also a robotic ghost to avoid. Also on the disc is Disc Manager
which offers the facility to delete files, make a directory, rename a
file, delete directory, list directory, mouse on/off, music on/off. Mad
which is a flashing colourful screen with music, and spritebankviewer
which is self-explanatory. All programs by the same programmer.
Teslar, Snake & Text
Teslar is a variant of Tetris with source code and documentation. Snake
is based on the old centipede type game and also has documentation.
Amos Text is a text reader used to view the instructions for each game.
Icon controlled for moving around the text and very easy to use, nice
I was very impressed with this game and offered to put it in the
Licenseware but the programmer wanted to try an experiment and has
released it as "discware". If you like it then you are supposed to send
the programmer a PD disc. I hope you don't disappoint him as I think he
deserves some reward. On booting you are given three options, F1: Play
the game, F2: High scores, F3: Instructions. The object of the game
is to fill in the black area of the board using the shapes shown at the
bottom of the screen. However, you only have a certain amount of each
shape which is indicated by the value below the shapes. You can add or
remove shapes but there is a time limit. If you complete a level you
are given a password for the next one. Beware this is a very addictive
game. Highly recommended for lovers of puzzles.
Jigmania Disc 4
Another disc to use with Jigmania compiled by the original author. All
puzzles on this disc are for the 99 piece option. Puzzles include
Butterfly, Lion, Spaceman and others. Nine new puzzles in all. Needs
LPD013 to run (Jigmania).
Creative Software Applicati
Unfortunately this game can not just be loaded and run you will need to
read the doc files on how to set it up. Quite a complicated procedure
unless you are familiar with the Amiga. You will find the docs in the
WARSIM directory. Also on the disc is a slideshow advertising this
hobbs games vol i
Docs for all the games are supplied. Games all run from a menu. Disc
contains CRAPMAN which is a version of PACMAN played using the joystick.
BATTLE which is based on noughts and crosses with magic! ADRIAN in
which you play a kid named...Adrian! Your aim is to find the Golden
Chalice which is hidden somewhere in the checkboard desert. To reach it
you have to avoid many obstacles. 80+ is the final game in which you
play Mr. Kwong protecting his retirement home with his Ninja Stick from
his arch enemy The Black Zimmer-Frame. Nice collection of simple fun
Please order APD260 (disc 2) when ordering this. A lot of effort has
gone into this program. Initially you are given the option of turning
off the music and pilot selection. You are given a choice of ten men.
You will be given full details on his character and background. You
control a chopper of course in this sideways scrolling game and have to
shoot the enemy. I got sick of Colonel Grim telling me my attempts were
feeble and that he was going to take over the world. I wasn't good
enough to stop him but you might be! Pity the music isn't original but
the game is good fun.
Yoghurt Boy and Twit Man in the Quest for the Pink Banana is a text
adventure in which you control movements by clicking on icons. The
adventure isn't very complicated but quite funny in places. Also on the
disc is a nice vertical scrolling shoot-em-up with some good graphics
and smooth animation.
This is a well presented scrolling maze game. Although the graphics are
small the game is extremely playable. The idea is to collect all the
tablets in a maze to proceed to the next level all within a time limit.
This is a good, addictive, game.
Very well presented game in the same mould as Shufflepuck Cafe.
Basically you have a paddle at one end of the table and your opponent
one at the opposite end. You then have to stop the ball going off your
end of the table. The action is very fast and the game is really
addictive. You can either play against a second player or against the
war of four demo
This is a demo version of a game that can be purcased from the author
for a sum of £3.50. The game is basically a war game between four
different races, Goblins, Dwarves, Elves and Humans. The game screen is
split into two. The top half is your current view and the bottom half
is where all your icon controls are. The game is very complex and lots
of playing would be needed to win or even complete it.
grand prix sim
The aim of this game is to be at the top of the Championship Standing
after 10 Grand Prix races. You start with a certain amount of money and
must buy a pit crew, an engine for your car and a driver. Spend your
money carefully as you only have a limited supply. Lots of options are
available in the game, there isn't much on the graphical front but the
game is absorbing.
fizzy pop games 1
There are two games on this disc. Noughts and Crosses is a very nice
version of... well I think you can guess! Super Brain is also a good
version of a classic, this time Mastermind. Both games have really nice
bas relief graphics.
KILL DF1: WITH 1/2mb. This game is very annoying yet so addictive all
at the same time! Basically you have to use your paddle to bounce a
ball out of the exit on screen but once you start to hit the ball it
will not stop and you can then only hit the ball at angles! Oh and just
to make things easier it musn't hit any of the walls or you lose a life.
To say this game is hard is an understatement. Very simple idea makes a
really good game. Recommended.
This is a Rockford or Boulderdash style game. The idea in this one,
however, is to collect the rubbish bags and go to the next level. There
are lots of levels and if you get bored of them you can always use the
level editor to create some more.
This is a Shareware game. The idea of the game is to remove pegs from a
star shaped board in a similar fashion to Solitaire i.e. by jumping
over them. The game is by no means easy and if you want an even more
taxing version then use the time limit option as well.
Black Jack Trainer has lots of options and is a nice implementation of
Black Jack. The main options include a help system and the ability to
load, save and test various strategies. If you like Black Jack or want
to try and learn how to play it then get this disc. The program is
Silver Bars And The Enemy. Do you remember Hunchback on the Spectrum,
64 etc. This is a brilliant version of that classic and very addictive
game. Also on the disc is a demo of Locks, Keys And Enemies a future
addition to Deja-Vu Proffesional Software collection, which is an
adanced version of the game on this disc.
Very nice game in which you play a cute yellow, fluffy thing called
Herbert and you must save your village from destruction. There are many
levels to complete and I must say they are very hard! Basically you
have to run and jump over monsters and obstacles on your way. Hard bt
The two programs on this disc, Hangman and Hangman Editor, are both
Shareware. Basically this is a spruced up version of hangman with an
editor to create lists of words to use in the program which can be
played by one or two people. Full instructions are also included on the
This is the latest version of WoodenBall. The game involves scoring
goals in the opposing players net. You can play a game against the
computer or against another player. There are also many options for
game speed etc. The gameplay is difficult to get used too but once you
have the hang of it it is quite an addictive game. Some nice routines
Very well presented Fruit Machine game with a large scrolling play
screen. All the usual options are included as well as some nice added
differences! This is a great fruit machine game that is recommended
This is a very good AMOS version of the popular Tetris game. Nice
display, with redefinable keys if you're not comfortable with the ones
In this game you are the manager of an American football team. This is
the radio version, ie it is displayed as if it is heard over a radio,
the TV version will follow shortly if you send off your shareware
registration fee. Looks good if you like American Football.
Snake in the grass
This is a centipede type game where you have to gather the white
mushrooms and avoid the red toadstools. You mustn't bump into the
border or other parts of yourself either! Good graphics in this fast
This is a game that almost defies description. Yes, it is possible for
a worm to do karate, but to see just how it's done, you'll have to buy
the game! It's a platform game controlled with the joystick. Plus
users please note:- Works from Cli just type 'ramos'.
Here is a program that you can use to create silly sentences, the kids
had great fun with it. You input names and situations and let the
computer do the rest, the results can be Ludicrous! There is a speech
option, which slows it down and also a silly mode which produces even
Save The Trees
A game which has a message in its title. We need trees! Here you must
stop the little men with axes from chopping down the trees. You are in
a bulldozer and stop them by driving over them or shooting them. It's
not as easy as it first appears as the axemen move faster than the
bulldozer. Nice idea.
Here is a simple, but very addictive game. It is based vaguely on
solitaire where you eliminate pieces from the board by making one piece
jump over another into a free space. In this game the pieces are fluffy
little creatures, the ones you jump over are `saved and the object of
the game is to save as many Fwuffs as possible. Shareware. Lots of
This is a shareware game with a difference, the author would like
donations sent to the charity he has nominated in his Docs. It is an
adventure for young children in which they journey to different lands to
help the inhabitants get rid of a wicked witch. Has very good reviews
in the magazines.
This is a Two player blast'em to death game. Plug in two joysticks to
play this game. (no longer shareware!)
This game can be played by SIX players, each one of whom has his or her
personal game displayed on the screen. The aim is for each player to
find the exit and go on to the following level. This is a novel idea
which Mark says came from an old Electron title. Worth trying.
This version of hangman has versions for children and adults. The
children's version has a sequence of soldiers marching on the
unfortunate prisoner, for each wrong guess another soldier brings on
part of the gallows and the prisoner shows signs of great dispair, if
you guess correctly, he jumps for joy! I found this idea quite amusing
even if rather macabre, look out for the final sequence. The adult
version has different animation with various parts of the hanged man
being added for each incorrect answer.
This is a 'Pairs' game where you have to match a card from the top half
of the screen with one from the bottom of the screen. There is a choice
of pictures to use, these include cars, patterns, smileys, and flags.
You may play against the computer in which case you can choose the
number of tries allowed per game, or there is a 2 player option. You
can also choose between 18 or 32 pair to be matched. All in all a
nicely done game.
This game is based on the old 'twenty questions' quiz. Up to four
players can take part and there are four catagories of questions -
Person, Place, Thing and Year. The aim is to get around the game board
by guessing words from clues given. You choose a clue by clicking on
one of 20 numbered circles, you are then given a clue to a word or year
from the subject highlighted at the top of the screen. You then have to
type in your guess, there is a timer to beat, but this is stopped when
you start typing. Your score depends on how many clues you have used.
This is Jim's first full game I hope he will do more as this game is
well worth adding to your collection.
Rattle Snake by Ben Ashley. This is a helicopter game with plenty of
action. Space Chaser by Paul Gaunt. A novel idea for a pacman clone,
here you have space ships going around the mazes. Mazeman by Stephen
Eaborn. A classic pacman game, very nicely presented. Source for all
three games is included for you to look at. A value for money disk
which will give hours of fun.
Roger North (Sarog)
This is the game that has kept the younger members of our household
glued to the Amiga for hours at a time! Roger is the author of
Crossfire, which was also very popular (APD110) and his latest offering
is just as addictive. In this game, your character moves through a
maze, but instead of meeting beasties, you are taken to one of seven
subgames which you must complete before going further. These games are
called at random, they are very simply presented, but very effective.
They range from a car race, dodge the arrows, guess the letter before
you get squashed to a pulp, centipede, minefield and a couple more
besides! Get this one, it will get you hooked!
This is a two player game which is played on a split-screen display.
Both players are in a maze and the aim is to find your opponent and
eliminate him before he does the same to you! Of course you can only
see you own immediate area so tracking down the enemy isn't that easy.
You are helped/hindered by transporter squares and one way doors. Good
Marc D. Bradshaw
Another Tetris-type clone where you have to match the patterned blocks
in groups of three. Nice looking Shareware game.
This is a card game which is joystick controlled. Here you have to
guess whether the next card will be higher or lower than its
predecessor. Get enough runs of five cards complete before going onto
the next stage of the game where you have to get all the guesses wrong!
Completing this takes you onto more sections of the game which,
unfortunately I haven't reached yet! Very nicely presented game.
At last - an adventure! This text adventure was written by Philip using
his CREATIVE ADVENTURE TOOLKIT (which is Deja Vu Licenseware disk
L/033). The descriptions are very atmospheric and make you feel as if
you are wandering around the forests on the Welsh/English borders.
Highly recommended! Updated May 1993
This is the latest addition from Roger North. This is a platform game
where the aim is to bound upwards to reach an exit hole at the top of
the screen. Not as simple as it sounds! Between you and the exit are
platforms, gaps appear randomly as the platforms move across the screen.
You have to jump ut through these gaps to reach the top exit. There are
no meanies on level one, so you can get the feel of the game before
progressing onto the higher levels where you have to avoid these beasts
as well as trying to get to the top of the screen! Recommended.
David A. Lorner
This is a disk full of card games and puzzles which will keep you amused
for hours - I know, I 'tested' it! The games are various versions of
Patience - each one has full instructions and a rating of how likely you
are to complete it. You won't need as much patience to play these card
games as you would using a deck of cards as they don't need to be
gathered up, shuffled and dealt out again between games! The card games
are:- STRATEGY WINDMILL FOURTEEN OUT KING ALBERT PATIENCE CASTLE CLOCK
SNAP EIGHT OFF FLOWER GARDEN & SIR TOMMY. The puzzles are:- SCORELINE -
a logic number puzzle, & TRAY which is a sliding tile game. David first
sent his work into Totally Amos, and we have watched them develop into
this disk full of games. Well recommended!
This disk contains three programs, the main one being a well presented
puzzle game. The playing area is a grid and the idea is to place
coloured stones onto this to copy the pattern given in a square on the
right of the screen. Easy? Not so, you are not the only player trying
to complete patterns, your oponent, which can be human or computer is
trying to do the same thing as well as blocking your next move. Good
game! The other programs are AbkPlayer, which is a (multi) music tool
and AmBOS V1.18 which is a Cli mask.
Marc Le Douarain
This game has been sent to us from France and is the programmer's first
game. It is a maze game where you are in control of a submarine which
is sailing through underwater mazes gathering ancient vases. You are
able to shoot a path through the walls to gain access to cut off areas
of the maze, but your shots are limited. Fish guard the treasure, and
colliding with one will lose a life. This is a shareware game which is
worth having in your game collection.
Karate Worm II
I still don't know how to describe a worm who uses Karate to defeat his
enemies! (Remember KW I?) This new arcade chop'em up is better than the
first, which was well received when it appeared. Here you have to
demonstrate your joystick skills to get around collecting treasure, it
isn't as easy as it seems.
This is another offering from Mark Potter. It is a follow up to
Alliance which wqas released a while ago. It is a strategy game which
This is a game with a purpose other than shear amusement! Dave wrote
this program to show how the effects of drinking can influence your
judgement. The program tests the time taken to react to different tests
and analyses the results. These tests should be done before any alcohol
is drunk, and again after a drink or two. If you manage to persuade a
few friends to take the tests, and you send the results off to Dave, he
will build up a database of the effects of drink on (would be) drivers.
A very interesting proggie, but I'm not encouraging the under 18's out
there to drink just to do the test, although those over 18 might find
out some interesting things!
Match With Humpty
This is a program which will teach young kids to match words to
pictures. Humpty sits on top of his wall watching to see how well you
do! Nice graphicsin this well presented program.
The Classic Collection
Horbinder Singh Ghag
This is a collection of three classic games, all provided as source code
only, so you can see how they were done. My favourite is monopoly which
is very good and gives the feel of the real board game. The good point
is that you can't cheat or get the money wrong! Also on the disk is a
version of Connect Four and a jigsaw puzzle game, both well done, but
for me, it's worth buying just for Monopoly!
This is a very addictive puzzle game for two players, or one player
playing two games at the same time, which is quite a challenge! Each
player has two boxes on the screen. The top one contains a hidden
picture, the lower one is the play area where you have to click on
squares to reveal a tick or a cross. Every tick you reveal gets you an
extra turn, a cross means that it's your opponents turn. To add to the
fun, there are bombs which clear your playfield so you will have to have
a good memory to remember where those ticks were! Great stuff from the
author of Couples and Kinghigh. Updated May 1993
Weedie the miserable wizard, is really unhappy to see flowers growing in
his garden, they are making the place far too pretty! He takes his
nuclear beans and sows them around the garden to destroy the flowers.
It's a novel game idea sort of anti ecological, but great fun and rather
addictive. Get your joystick plugged in for this game!
Card & Other Games II
David A. Lorner
Also known to be 1200 compatible. This is David's second disk of games,
I find these different games of Patience ever so addictive! They are
supplied with good instructions which give a probability rate of
success. This time we also have a version of the Rubic's Clock puzzle.
Short out is a puzzle game that will keep you going for hours. The idea
is to diffuse a bomb by connecting your defusing machine to the
terminals on the bomb to make it safe. Of course the right wires have
to be connected or you will blow yourself up. After each bomb is safe,
you are given a password which allows you onto the next level and a clue
which you should remember to solve the final challenge. This disk is
shareware, so if you like it, send Dave two pounds!
Top Of The League
This is a soccer management game, the first in the APDsection (there is
one in GPD). Use your skills as a manager to get your team to the top
of the league. Text and graphics are used in this program.
Frust & Devil's Dittany
Two games for the price of one from Mark Potter who has given us so much
of his work in the past. His latest offerrings are FRUST, which is a
Thrust type game, which I must admit I can't get the hang of! and
Devil's Dittany which can be played against the computer of better
against another human. Each player has his own screen to follow the
wizard's progress as he goes around collecting herbs to make spells.
Speedy Reedy & Football
Two games again on this disk! Speedy Reedy and His Crazy Capers is a
joystick controlled maze game where the aim is to guide Speedy around
the screen collecting sweets and avoiding the baddy at the same time.
It's a good little game which I got quite addicted to even if I can't
get past Level 1! The trick seems to be to keep moving - don't stop to
breathe, sneeze or gulp a mouthful of coffee! Football is a game for
those who just like pressing the mouse button. You don't haver to do
anything else! The program takes you through a season of competitions
giving you the results of each round with the list of the overall
winners given at the end. It does have some strange fascination factor
that keeps you pressing the mouse button until the end tho'! It will be
usefull to those who wish to see just how the scores were generated etc.
Couples 2 & Nomis
This disk contains the latest version of Graham's Couples game which is
a nicely presented Pairs game for two players. Nomis is a Simon game
where you have to repeat a sequence of colours by clicking on the
screen. Both games are very well presented.
Amos Invader & Creepy Crawly
SM Sutton & F Dudley
A value disk with two games for you. Amos Invaders by SM Sutton is a
version of the old classic Space invaders which is very well done with
aliens which get faster and faster as the game progresses. Creepy
Crawley is a novel game from Frank Dudley. You control a spider who has
to eat the flies it catches in its web. Watch out in later levels, the
flies fight back! Both of these programs are useful for beginners to
look at, as usual, the code is on the disk for you to look at. This is
the sort of program which can be played around with to see how it works.
Lateral Quizzes 3,4 &5
Dr John Foley
Parts 1 & 2 of this series of quizes can be found on GPD184 as they are
compiled. This disk contains three lateral thinking quizzes for you to
wrap your brains around. They are Easy Amos written and show that
people who have bought Easy Amos are coming to grips with programming.
By following the series from 1 through to 5 you will see how John's
coding has improved since the quizes were started a couple of months
ago. A warped sense of humour is needed to guess the answers to some of
the questions which are set out in a 'Catchphrase' style.
M K Lysons
This is a futuristic type ballgame management game where there are loads
of options to help you get your team to the top of the championship
Style is a pairs matching game which is very Stylish with 3-D effect
tiles for you to select to make up the pairs. You can also change the
number of tiles in the game to make it easier for younger players,
although finding 2 matching sets out of 4 cards might be a bit too easy
for even the youngest player! Nice version of an old favourite.
This is another Mark Potter game. This time we have a platform game
where you have to grt through the levels by shooting spells at the
beasties. You play the role of a wizard and your spells gain in
strength as you progress through the game.
This is a two player game where the idea is to seek out your opponent in
the maze and blast him before he blasts you! An added feature is that
there are energy pods to be collected in each level and your strength
and weaponry changes according to the number of these that you have
collected. Of course, these energy pods will also aid your enemy! A
well presented game.
This is a game written in AMOS 3-D. It is the first game of its kind
that I have seen anywhere. You are sailing a yacht in a race around a
bay, navigating around marker buoys and trying to beat your opponents.
This game has atmosphere! The display moves up and down just like the
real thing with all the appropriate creaks etc you'd expect to hear when
sailing. Good fun.
Super Battle Zone
This is a 3-D game.
Blackjack & Tutor
This disk will teach you how to play Blackjack and the will give you a
Previously known as AUS25. This is a simple game where you have to make
2 characters race across the screen.
Duel And Underworld
Previously known as AUS26. Two games from Australia.
A game of Invaders.
Take out your agression in this two player Karate game where you have to
kick the sense out ofyour opponent.
This program is based on the Aussie national lottery and helps users
pick a series of numbers. By inputting the results of past lotteries,
the program picks numbers that could come up.
This is a trader/Sim type game set on the moon where the aim is to build
up a colony. Looks interesting, but I haven't had time to play it!
This is a vertically scrolling Space Shoot'em up game where, like on
earth you can only die once!
This game needs two players. You can choose your weapons before setting
out to blow your enemy away.
I didn't know quite where to put this one as it isn't really a game! It
is an educational program which displays the letters of the alphabet one
at a time with a suitable picture and description, also a message which
tells the child of possible dangers or more info. eg Car - Do not get
into a stranger's car.
This disk contains two popular games. The first is a version of Cleudo
called Who Did It? for 2 to 4 players. The idea is to move around the
board collecting the clues which come in 9 pieces each and fit together
on a grid to make a complete pictureof Who Did It. Wheel of Fortune is
like the TV game, but you must bear in mind that the TV Programs in the
Answers are Australian.
The games on this disk are Arena and Crosswords.
This is a car racing game which gives you a choice of vehicles, choice
of tracks and the number of laps can be set from 1 to 5 for each race.
This game is joystick controlled and looks good. Source code is
Tables Test/Little Imps
Here we have 2 educational programs both of which are based on maths.
Tables Test is just that, a program to aid the learning of the times
tables while the Little Imps program covers addition, subtraction,
multiplication and division. The idea for this one is that you have to
answer enough sums correctly to fill up the `think tanks'. There is
also a reward game to play where you have to shoot down the paint pots
which the imps are carrying as they fly across the screen.
Jordan vs Shaq
This is a basketball package which has 3 different programs. One on One
is a two player basketball game, Slam Dunk Contest is a shoot out for
points choosing from 8 different trick moves to allow your player to get
the ball in the basket. Three point shoot out is a game where two
players take turns to shoot at goal to see how many points can be scored
in a set time.
This is a source only version of the game which originally came to us on
4 disks. The graphics are not the best, but the game works well.
Duel Sword Doods
After a year, we've got this game on the library! Due to disks not
working and getting lost in the post, it's now here for you to play.
It's a chop'em up game for two players who control 2 sword wielding
fighters. The idea is to cut up your opponent or drive him against the
nasty spikes which stop him retreating down the exit tunnel. I think
they come from Mars as they bleed green blood! Recommended by our
junior in-house testers.
This is a rarity in the library as we do not get many adventures sent
Tony has sent in this demo version which allows you to play the first
3 parts of the game - to get the rest you will have to contact him!
I have tried it out and it looks interesting. It's mainly text,but has
some illustrations if you wish.
The adventure lets you explore many locations through a town, woods,
sewers castle and more and the code provided is well commented to let
you see how it was constructed.
This game is a variation on the old bat and ball game. The difference
here is that instead of knocking a ball back to your opponent, the aim
is to stop the balls hitting the boundery on your side of the screen.
The balls appear several at a time and move across the screen at
differing speeds so that you have to dash from one end to the other to
hit them. If you miss, you lose a life, if you hit lots, you get extra
lives. There are very many different options you can use to make each
game different. These include speed and different game screen choices,
e.g. vertical game with balls coming from top and/or bottom, horizontal
game etc. An interesting game from Graham who has several others in the
This is a disk of four source only games sent in my Michele from Italy.
Atoms is the best game, it is a logic game to be played by 2-4 players.
The idea is to place atoms on a grid, when the limit for that square is
reached, the atom explodes into the adjacent ones often causing chain
reactions which wipe out other players' atoms - the winner is the person
who has atoms left when everyone else has been blown away.
Tetris - a new version of the old favourite.
Fantasy - blast the beasties with your mouse!
Super - Arcade game
Amos Pro Games Disk
This disk contains the source code for 3 games written with Amos Pro and
will NOT run in Amos Classic. Mazes is by Robin Cook and is a game set
on 5 levels of difficulty and is a game for one player set in 4 mazes,
all of which are displayed on the screen at the same time. Level one is
a trainer level, but on the higher ones you can be killed by an enemy or
bomb in any of the mazes, not just the one in which you are playing!
The best description I can think of for this game is 4-way Pacman!
Shooter is a space invader type game but here you only have one target
to shoot at. There are 9 levels of skill and you get a limited number
of shots. Power Pong by Harvey Ball is a nice variation of the old bat
and ball game for two players where each player has a bat on one side of
the screen and the aim is to hit the ball into the goal of your opponent
at the opposite side of the screen. There is a choice of 5 sporting
themes to play to add variety to the game.
Black Belt Tournament
D Slater & M Pickett
This is a karate tournament game where you can take out all your
frustrations by kicking your opponent without getting hurt. Not a bad
game from Mr Slater and Mr Pickett, but as I do not really like this
sort of game (joysticks and me don't get on!) I couldn't get to see it
all the way through.
It's the Cars..
The full title of this game is `It's the cars that ate the world'. A bit
of a strange title, but the idea seems to be that you drive your mutant
car around the game map running over the nasties who, from what I've
seen are people.
I'm no great joystick users, so I couldn't get very far, but it's an
interesting idea and as the code is on the disk, it could show other car
game writers how it's done!

Chris Labrum & J. Hale
This disc contains PONTOON by Chris Labrum which is a bootable program.
A very good version of the popular card game which sticks (no pun
intended!) closely to the normal rules of the game. The disc also
contains some AMOS programs that need AMOS to run. These include BITMAP
FINDER, CAVL and LIGHTCYCLES by J. Hale.
I am a self confessed DUNGEON MASTER fanatic, having played the game way
back in 1988 on a ... dare I say it ... Atari St!!! So, if you have
also shared in the delights of the game you have doubtless wondered if
you could produce a game as good! Well with this disc you are part of
the way there. The programs are all fully documented and basically give
you the bare bones on which to base your game. So hurry up and write
one and put people like me out of their misery and give us another DM
game to get to grips with. Well done Allen.
Amos Programs 15
Disc contains the following programs. 3 excellent bob routines by Steve
Bennett for you to use in your own demos, very effective. MegaBase v2.2
by Ben Ashley. Skeet and Target Shooting by Steve Bennett. A simple
game written with learner programmers in mind to help you master AMOS.
The program is unfinished so you can add whatever you want to it, a high
score table for example. Hit The Target by Nick and Matt Tucker - a
simple fairground shooting gallery. Give 'em hell by Ben Ashley is a
game in which you have a choice of aircraft, helicopter, tank or jeep,
It's red against green and you have to shoot the opposition. This disc
is recommended for budding programmers.
Amos Programs 16

SoundTracker2.2 which is a better coded version of the converter, and
Spacker which is a small program for packing IFF pictures.
Some of the programs on this disc are Shareware - please read the docs

slideshows (listen to the STARTREK samples while you run the program).

scancode of any key pressed. Disc autoboots.
Produced with the beginner in mind. Disc contains skeet-shooting,
light-cycles, simple-breakout, king-of-the-castle and sprite-viewer.

Also on the disc is GrubGrabber one of Chris's early games. Some of the
programs on this disc are Shareware.

deep cavern. You have to retrieve them. Nice platform and ladders
game. Not too difficult either even I managed to complete a few levels!
ERIC WATCH YOUR STEP by Colin Naylar. Help Eric to get home. Landmines
litter the way through 6 levels of difficulty. A nice touch is hitching
a lift on the train in a couple of levels. In the final stage you must
help Eric reach his front door. Simple game. HANGMAN by Simon
Walklate. Not much need to explain this one.

the word for you. Nicely presented program. Useful for solving

Amos Programs 31.
This game had to be entered as a source code as the disk was so full!
Luke has written a car race game which is really rather good, it's well
worth looking at and playing. Nice one Luke!
A.B.C. stands for Adventure Bank Creator. It contains procedures which
you can use in your own programs to create adventure games. There is a
graphics template which shows you how much of the screen can be used for
illustrating your adventure, and the banks are created by using the
control codes in the procedures. Chris has kindly provided the source
code for A.B.C. as well as the compiled program, but unfortunately
hasn't had the time to write an example program. We'd like to see what
you lot out there can do with it!
Ejber Ozkan - Storm
The idea of this disk is to provide programs which you, the reader can
improve on and send to Ejber (in London) for inclusion in the next disk.
There are compiled programs on this disk which will run without Amos,
the source for these is provided. Due to lack of disk space some progs
are source only. The disk is FULL and good value. It's easy to use as
it uses Menu Master selector program to get to the different parts of
Easy Amos Progs 1
This is the first disk of programs which Easy Amos users will be able to
load into Easy Amos to look at how they work. All these programs have
appeared on other APDdisks, but these versions have been converted so
that you can run them in Easy Amos without getting 'Command not in Easy
Amos' error messages! Progs:- Atishoo, Backwards, Carcollision,

easily - it has always been a top seller for Amos Users._ THIRTY SOURCE
PROGRAMS FOR EASY AMOS USERS!!!!!!!
Easy Amos Progs 2
This is the second disk for Easy Amos users, although, Amos users can
use them as well. All programs are elsewhere on the library but spread
over many disks. There are 13 more programs for you to look at
including Reversi by Dominic Ramsey, OXO, VertText, Vertstars.

Amos Programs 33
K. Hall Yazoo
The main part of this disk is dedicated to the memory of Kevin Hall who
tragically died in a traffic accident in the New Year. He had put these
two programs onto the Library just before the accident. The first is an
address book, the second a database for keeping a catalogue of a book
collection. Both these can be run independently of Amos or loaded into
Amos for you to customise to your own use. The rest of the disk is
taken up by 'Jumble' which is a Demo by Yazoo, whose work will in future
be found in the GPDsection of the Library. All three are runnable as
well as having source code on the disk.
Uncle Simes Progs 2
Also needs CTEXT. Look to see what stunning things you can do with Amos
and CText! Even uncompiled Simes' scrollers are superb. Well remmed
Source code for your delight!
This disk boots to a game of O's & X's, but if you look through the disk
using Amos, you will find some good source programs as well. Cas stands
for Chaos All Stars which is a French group of coders.
Which Way Out
This is the sourcecode for a game written with TOME. YOU WILL NEED TOME
AND AT LEAST ONE MEG OF CHIP MEM TO SEE THIS GAME. It involves
travelling around a maze of tunnels on a hoverscooter.
Grapher & Life
There are 2 programs on this disk, the first is GRAPHER which will plot
mathematical functions onto a graph, including 3-D functions. There are
extensive docs on the disk and the author says that it will be of use to
maths & science students from GCSE standard and upwards. It is well
presented and uses the Amos editor to run. The second program is called
LIFE. It follows a colony of cells from generation to generation using
simple maths functions to decide on whether a cell lives or dies. You
decide on the criteria for survival in the menu section of the program.
An interesting addition to the library.
This program will allow you to create click and select menus for your
programs which will be very useful if you have several programs on the
same disk. Full instruction given!
Programs From Denmark
This is, I believe, our first entry from Denmark. It contains five
useful programs:- a menu system, a disk base, a morse code program, an
input routine and a novel program which will give you info on resistors
if you put in the colour bands found on it.
Uncle Simes 3
You will also need CTEXT to run these programs which will show you how
great this extension is! Fantastic effects for budding demo writers, I
especially liked the Plasma scroller - has to be seen to be believed!
Totally Amos Source 1
I promised ages ago that I would put together a disk of programs from
Totally Amos. Well here it is! It also contains programs which were a
bit too big to put on the mag disk. Thanks to all who contributed!
Look out for Disk 2!

This disk autoboots, but you will need Amos to make use of the source
progs on the disk. It contains a couple of games, a printer utility and
an Unlocker to unlock Amos procedures. The idea behind this disk, like
it's predecessor APD410, is for programmers to pick a program and mix
in their own code to improve the result and then send it back yp Ejber
who will put your update onto Pick'n'Mix 3. Any contributions are
welcome. Some of the programs this time were sent in by Roy Huntley.
Totally Amos Progs 2
This is the second in the Totally Amos disk collection. This disk
contains programs written by TA readers which were too big to put onto
the magazine. The programs are POOLS by Andrew Cartwright. This
generates a random series of numbers which could help you to make up
your mind with the weekly pools coupon, there is a superb anim of a
wireframe running man in the intro to the program. Jeff Tullin provides
an alternative requestor. John Law has a crossword puzzle and Martin
MacDonald, a O&X's game. Stephen Bradley presents MasterMind. The
largest contribution comes from Steve Bennett who gives us a Zone
Editor, Maze crazy and walk around a maze which was featured in Amiga
Shopper, and a game called Planet which will help you to get to grips
with the basics of writing a shoot'em up game.
J A K Routines#1
This is a disk of very useful routines which will be of tremendous use
to beginners who may be asking "How do I do.....". These routines are:-
SPLERGE-splurge a pic onto the screen: FRACTAL TREE- creates a fractal
drawn tree: LINE EDIT - allows editing of a line of a given length in
your prog: BAT'N'BALL- a little Arkanoid type game: SCROLLER - how to
scroll text as seen in demos: OUTLINE areas on the screen in any
colour: FADE PICTURE: 32-16 - converts 32 or 64 colour .iff pics to 16
colours. PICCY CONVERTOR: MUSIC PLAYER: PIXELIZE - enlarges pixels in
given area of screen using Pixelize command: 3-D REQUESTOR - a 3-D
requestor prog to prompt user: BUTTON PRESS- checks parts of screen for
user response: 3-D BOX: FILE COPIER - ute for copying a file from A to B

This is Mr Albrow's second disk of source code. The first APD463 has
proved to be very popular. This disk is mostly for AMOS PRO users and
includes updated versions of some previously released programs as well
as some new ones to look at. Lots of people are asking for Pro source
disks, but the only way we can put together such disks is if Pro users
send in programs! (it need not be a full disk!!)

This is the third in the Pick'N'Mix series which is a type of
magazine/program exchange set up last year by Ejber for people to
contribute original programs or improved versions of progs from previous
disks. No 3 contains a map editor as its main feature. Source code is
on the disk as well for you to look at.
JAK Routines #2
JAK#1 is a popular disk, hopefully #2 will be the same. Here we have
lots more source routines for you to use and a good text reader that
also displays graphics. This can be seen in action as John uses it to
display his doc file which tells you what is on the disk. Good value!
This is the first issue of David's magazine disk for owners of the
Trojan Light Phazer. It contains plenty to read as well as a game for
you to try your shooting skills on. The game also works with the mouse
if you do not own a phazer. Lots of info on compatbility etc.
Issue 2 of the only disk mag for Trojan Light Phazer owners. Contains a
game which can be played with either the gun or a mouse.

This disk has been put together from other disks in the library and
contains a collection of screen wipes and scrollers. We are often asked
for these by new programmers who find it a bit expensive buying loads of
program disks to sift through for just what they want. If this proves
popular, I'll spend some time making up disks on othher subjects.

style of 'Catchphrase'. This disk has the source-only versions of the
programs so that you can get 4 for the price of one! The clues given for
the phrases aresometimes obvious, sometimes a bit cryptic, and sometimes
really obscure, unless you have a weird brain! A strangely addictive set

of much use except to read the command names.
Amos Extensions Disk
Lots of people have been enquiring about PD extensions lately, now you
can get them! Thanks to Karl Roberts for sending them to us.
The extensions on this disk are:
Turbo 1.9 Versions for Classic and Pro by Manuel Andre
Easy Life Classic By Paul Hickman
The EASY LIFE extension is designed to do just that - make life easier -
especially the parts of said life spent writing AMOS programs. The
commands included are not designed to speed up graphics to amazing
levels, but to speed up the actual computing work done in the
background, and to allow you to read various internal AMOS variables.

F1 Source code Issue 1
Steve and Belinda Bye who run a new Licenseware scheme in Exeter have
sent us in their first issue of Amos PD source code. Some of it has
appeared on Amos PD before, but a lot of it is Steve's own work.
This is the demo version of Issue 5 of the Nothing But Amos disk
magazine which is proving very popular indeed. Full details of how to
get future issues are on the disk.

This is another Amos User's magazine disk, this first issue being PD.
It contains articles, or info on what will be in it plus source code
This disk is released into PD by the author of the new Liberator
extension. It contains some utilities, most of which will be of use to
the more experienced programmer, as is the Liberator extension itself.
It is a must to those who have the Liberator extension, which is not

F1 Licenseware have now joined in the Amos disk magazine family. This
is the PD issue which aims to show you what they intend to give you in
the following issues, the first due on June 1st. There are articles
covering programming and hints and tips as well as a first hand insight
into F1 Licenseware which is growing at a steady pace.
John A Kinsella
John Kinsella presents his Easy Slide program which will allow you to
construct a slideshow of pics from an almost infinite number of disks.
John's Slideshow Construction Kit has been very popular, this looks like
an even easier version which can be used by anyone, even me!
AMOS DIALOGUE PROCEDURES
John A Kinsella
By using the AMOS Dialog Procedures, you can create a number of
different programs which contain dialog boxes and requesters. Each of
the procedures are written so that they act like a normal Amos command,
this is to avoid confusion on how to use them.
If you require a certain dialog box or specific type of button, then it is
easy enough to simply create it using the procedures provided.
I am sure that this will be very useful to many Amos users who want to
maketheir programs look more professional.

===================== AMOS UTILITIES ==============
game music creator
This is a powerful and easy to use utility that allows you to create
musical tunes. Uses all four channels and comes complete with
documentation. Use the GMC-to-AMOS convert program to alter a 'block'
of music data and then play it back in AMOS using a simple MUSIC
virusx + others
More utilities have been added to this disc along with VirusX version
4.1. This disc is a useful addition to any AMOS or non-AMOS users
James Robert Crosby
The idea of this program is to allow AMOS users to create large IFF
screens which can be loaded into any of their own programs. This disc
also contains lots of other routines and utilities to load into AMOS,
including Arc Angel's music player.
This is a small data storage program which will store any data that you
have as a sequential file on disc. Options include add to a file,
change any record, see the directory of any drive, edit a record, delete
a file, view records etc. Excellent help is available within the
Amos Update Disc 1.36
THE CURRENT VERSION ON THIS DISC IS v1.36. If you have AMOS it is very
important that you use the latest version whenever possible. If any
futher updates are made to AMOS then you can return this disc with 75p
to get the new updates when they become available. Please note that the
update service does NOT apply to discs supplied by Europress or Amiga
Format, only those supplied by AMOS PDL. Compiler is now also updated
to 1.36, see disk APD373. AMOS PRO is on its second update, V1.12 is
now available as APD466.
Forms Really Unlimited is a program that lets you design forms for any
purpose. It is very easy to use, contains some sample forms and has
plenty of documentation to read through.
hack demo creator
The HACK MAGIC DIGITAL DEMO CREATOR makes demo producing easy.
Basically all the hard work is done for you and all you have to do is
add your music and a scrolly message.
There is full documentation on this disc. Rainbow Warrior gives you the
opportunity to "paint" with the copper/rainbows and save them for direct
inclusion in your own programs. The program can output ASCII blocks so
they can be merged directly into AMOS programs. Rainbow Warrior is
written in AMOS so users can adapt, mix and merge their own stuff in
there too. The program also outputs data for K-Seka, Devpac, Binary,
Decimal, Hex and in its own formats. The disc also contains some of the
best AMOS utilities i.e. soundtracker converter, squash-a-bob. There's
even a database "BOMBASE" on the disc. This disc is a must for all
Amos Paint V3.7
Works well with 1/2 meg but 1 meg is recommended. There are 2 versions
of AMOS-Paint, PAL and NTSC. Features: 2-64 colours (you can load HAM
pictures), easy to use interface with automatic menu hiding, full screen
painting, smooth Real-Time Auto-Scrolling on Super Bitmaps, can save and
load both IFF and SPACKed files, colour cycling using SHIFT UP and SHIFT
DOWN, all normal painting tools and a range of painting modes.
jpm sound utilities
The music on this disc is copyright JPM SOUND. Included on this disc is
MED 2.13 which seems to be attracting more and more users; particularly
as you can save your creations as Soundtracker modules.
I don't know much about this sort of program so I asked Paul of NBS to
describe this disc. (Thanks Paul.) This is just a working demo of the
program. If you want the full version then you must contact the author.
Full details on the disc. The program is a CAD tool to draw schematic
circuit diagrams. On loading the main program you are presented with
the full screen for drawing lines in much the same way as in other CAD
packages but at the top of the screen there are icons representing
different electronic components (approx. 100). You can use these in
your drawings. A lot of work has gone into this program, and expansions
are planned for additional custom libraries, and for a PCB designer.
Demonstrates that AMOS is not just for programming games.
This is a very nice painting package that requires one megabyte of
memory to run.
Type in the name of a program and after a while the information appears
on the screen. You can find out if a program has used any C source.
There are 3 search options: normal, disc and option search. Full
documentation is on the disc. Also on the disc is a neat little demo by
the same programmer.
Sample Editor V1.2
Contains full documentation to the Sample Editor. Disc also contains
Hexdump, Sample Player to listen to samples, Colour It a program for
colouring pictures and Move It, a simple game.
This is a database that requires one megabyte to run. Full
documentation is included on the disc.
Full documentation is included on the disc. Contains AMOS Copy which is
a utility to copy files from one disc to another. INTERLACE CONVERTOR
is a program to convert an IFF picture into an AMOS bank so that the
program INTERLACE_BVIEW can show the file as an interlace picture. Also
on the disc are a couple of music players by the same author. All
programs can be used from a menu.
B. J. Hills
Contains two readme files the first of which recommends some good titles
of books on fractals and the second of which explains what the programs
on the disc do. The disc contains slideshows on MandelBrots and Julia
Sets and also generators for both. A "must have" if you are interested
Amos Multipaint 2.0
Usual paint package facilities. Press "Q" for help whilst using the
program. Disc contains some pictures created using the package.
A. i. m.
AMOS IMAGE MANIPULATOR is a simple program based on Pixmate. You can
use it to smear your picture to give it a sort of D-Paint smooth look.
Pixelize your picture, change the colour to give red, blue, green or
grey scales. Flip the screen horizontally or vertically. Shift the
colours up and down, splatter them, shrink the screen or erase part of
it. Disc contains examples. Documentation can be read from Workbench.
Niall 3.0 Demo
This version of Niall is shareware. Some of the facilities have been
disabled. You can buy the full version from Mat if you register. NIALL
stands for Non-Intelligent AMOS Language Learner. This version is a
vast improvement on the previous PD program both in presentation and
ease of use. You can have great fun trying to converse with the
computer. There are also some source code programs on the disc which
require AMOS to run.
Very well presented program for generating inlay cards for cassettes.
The program is icon driven and the default printer is set to Epson.
There is an option to set it up to suit your printer. Excellent
utility. Also on the disc for AMOS users is oodles of source code.
EDITOBJ, SHOWOBJ, JOURNAL, ADDRESS-BOOK and MEGABASE. Thanks to all the
programmers who contributed to the disc. Please note some of these
programs, written in early versions of AMOS, might not work correctly
under the latest version. Try to change them to make them work.
This is a music creator using a method not unlike SONIX. By this I mean
that you point onto the staves and click where you want your notes so it
is just like writing a piece of music. There are lots of options
including save, load and erase note etc. There are also some samples of
music on the disc.
This is quite a useful program to display all the fonts on a disc.
Although the program itself is not very complex the disc has been filled
to the top with fonts for you to use - most of which are very nice.
Even if you don't want the program this disc might be worth buying for
the fonts alone.
Create colour palettes easily with this program. You can choose the
number of colours from 2 to 32. You can spread, load, save as an ASCII
file for inclusion in your programs and select ranges amongst other
things. You can load palettes from IFF pictures also. A very useful
This is a very nice attempt at writing a quality painting program in
AMOS. Unlike most other painting programs that have been put in the
Public Domain this one does not operate or resemble Deluxe Paint alot.
This different way of operating may not suit some people but this is a
very complete program with lots of options. Not as complex as DPaint
THE DEMO CREATOR v1.1. This disc contains a demo version of The Demo
Creator along with some programs to aid the production of the demos.
Rainbow Warrior to create those lovely copper bars, Soundtracker to Amos
convertor to convert music to .ABK files and a Text File Viewer so you
can view the document files for the program.
pic play v2
THIS PROGRAM IS COMPILED. Also on this disc, however, is a crunched
version of the AMOS program that you can uncrunch with PowerPacker. Pic
Play is basically a slideshow utility for showing pictures and music at
the same time. Full instructions are included on the disc to help you
but the program is easy to use.
This is a well presented utility to enable you to encode files so that
only people with the correct code can read them. There are full
instructions on the disc. You can use this program to code text files,
programs, pictures etc. There is also a copper maker, zone maker and
vector virus killer on the disc. Program updated to V3.0, July 1992.
Now super fast!
Lc24 Fonts Demo
This is a demo of a Deja-Vu Professional Software title by Jeff Tullin.
It is a demo of his 24 pin printer font installation program to allow
you to use new fonts in your printer. Also on the disc is an AMOS
system font editor and a new system font. Try before you buy!
Banker is a collection of four programs. Sonic Blast - a simple .ABK
music player, Screen Packer - load an IFF picture and save it as a .ABK
file, SBV - a simple sprite bank viewer and Sample Ripper - take sample
banks and save them as binary files to load into Sample Bank Maker
(supplied with AMOS). Nice collection of small programs.
This is a collection of six boot utilities for virus protection. They
have all been written in AMOS and full instructions are included. You
will need a Virus program that saves bootblocks as files on discs before
these programs can analyse them.
Family History Database 1.01
This is a program that will be of use to those interested in geneology.
Now you can keep a record of your family tree on disc, and with this
latest version of Family History Database yu can print out your records.
There is also a 1mb database on the disc, look for PFDB. The previous
version APD132, has now been withdrawn.
Word Power V1.1
This rogram will be very useful to people who need to check their
spelling before printing letters etc . Thereis a dictionary included
which has over 3700 words already entered, but these can be added to as
needed to produce an even better choice of words for the program to
check, any spell checker can only find mis-spelt words if it 'knows' the
word. The program can also analyse words and help you solve anagrams
and crosswords. There is a load/save facility for you to save your own
dictionary entries. Steven challenges users to send in larger
dictionaries and also foreign language dictonary files. Full documents
are on the disc. This is a shareware program.
Amos Compiler 1.36 Update
This disk will update your Compiler to match the latest Amos (1.36).
This disk is also updatable, should further versions become available.
This service costs 75p for disks supplied by Amos PDL. See also APD36,
AMOS 1.36 Update and APD466, AMOS PRO V1.12.
My Music Machine
This is a program that allows the user to play tunes on your Amiga, just
for fun! The screen display is very good and is set out like your
average electronic keyboard. It has a good choice of instruments and
rhythms and you have quite a wide variety of options as the way the
program is set up - ie the rhythm volume and rate, whether or not you'd
like the note letters displayed on the keyboard display and even if
you'd like a finger to press the notes for you! The actual notes are
played using the Amiga's keyboard as with Sound Tracker, and as you do
so, the finger obediently moves up and down the keys. This is one for
the kids or musical novices to have a go with.
Easy Ramos Disk
With Europress' Permission
It has come to our notice that Easy Amos does not come with RAMOS which
means that if you write a program in Easy Amos, it cannot be made to run
independently of Easy Amos. This disk contains the Amos 1.34 Ramos
which we have tested with Easy Amos programs. If you name your file
AUTOEXEC.AMOS, then you need not alter the startup sequence on the Easy
Ramos disk. The only thing you will lose is Easy Amos' pretty file
requestor which reverts to the standard Amos one. A must for Easy
Amos'ers, remember, if you give a copy of Easy Amos away with your
program, it is piracy!!!! Full Docs included.
Tony Swanwick Utilities
The utilities on this disk are supplied as both Compiled and source
programs which will work on Amos V1.3 and above. There are four
programs on the disk, all of which will be useful to programmers.
Appear.Amos - experiment with the appear command variables using the
interactive keypad. Vey professionally presented. FileEd.Amos- An Amos
clone of NewZap which lets you directly alter bites within a loaded
file. GrabBOB.Amos - As the name suggests you can grab Sprites and Bobs
from any IFF file and save them as an Amos Sprite Bank. Fully menu
driven with advanced features. GrabIFF.Amos - Save disk space by
cutting down your IFF file pictures to their minimum size by cutting a
rectangular section out of a larger screen and saving it.
This is an Art Package, in fact the title stands for The Amos Painting
Package. According to the disk label it does.... sketch, linedraw,
ray, circle, ellipse, filled circle, filled ellipse, triangle, filled
triangle, parallelogram, filled parallelogram, box, filled box, cut,
paste, spray, mix, text, colourfill, cycle and grid. Yes all that and
more was on the label! The disk also contains AmPP0.9 Convformat.
Slideshow Constuction V2
This handy ute will allow you to put together a slideshow of IFF
screens. It will even allow you to use several disks. Full
instructions and sample pics on the disk.
This disk contains two very useful utilities - U-File and U-Zone.
U-File is a highly interactive file byte editor which is packed full of
features for modifying any Amiga-Dos file. U-Zone this is a Zone
grabber which is easy to use. You only have to load an .iff picture and
draw in the zones with the mouse pointer, the data is then saved out as
an ascii file. Full docs are on the disk, in fact full manuals are on
the disk, nothing has been left to doubt on this very professionally
Volber has sent in useful disks in the past, this is his best yet! It
has a cli type program, AmosCopy which will do your file and disk
copying, Q4mat which is a Quick Format utility and a directory full of
useful Amos Tips. This disk is a MUST.
Amos Pro V1.12 Update
Amos Pro is now on its second update at version V1.12. It was found
that some machines were locking up the system with V1.11, but apparently
it is now OK. If you have not updated Pro at all since you bought it,
it is vital that you do so as lots of bugs have been fixed. Hard drive
users will have to update on floppy and thehn put the new version back
This disk has a Compiled as well as a source version of this very good
Sprite/icon grabber. It will cut out sprites from an .iff screen for
you to save as a bank. Other features include cut and paste and delete
bank. Sample .iff screen and demo pacman game included for you to use.
Amos C.A.T. V3.7
This program's full title is Amos Creative Adventure Toolkit. This
Version, 3.7, needs Amos to run, while the latest version available from
Deja Vu Software is a stand alone program which can be used by anyone
with an Amiga. Basically, this program will allow you to create
graphical or text adventures. If your coding ability is limited, but
you long to write an adventure, text or graphical, then this is a
program which will allow you to do so. An example of an adventure
written with CAT is Gory Story, APD418, which was written by Phil to
show what Amos CAT could do. Well recommended, info on Licenseware
version is included on the disk.
This program will allow you to design and edit fonts using a very
friendly user interface. Neat presentation for what I feel will be a
very useful utility.
Disk Register V1.20
This is a very nice looking database which stores all the information
about your collection of disks. Well laid out and easy to use. This
program comes from Norway and includes full instructions.
tele title 2 (lowres)
This is a video titling program which was written to add the finishing
touches to a wedding video, but by altering the text and graphics, you
can adapt it to any event. There are ample instructions on the disk and
even pictures of how to connect up all your electrical equipment! I
think that this will be very interesting to anyone who wants to dabble
in video productions.
This is a database which will keep a record of your disks.
Programmers WB Tool
A disk which could be useful for Amos programmers.
APWT-INSTALLER.AMOS APWT_C.AMOS APWT_N.AMOS
Family History Database
This is the latest PD version (v2.2f) of this popular database which
will keep the records of your ancestors in a tidy form.
This disk is a companion to the Liberator extension and so you will need
this extension to make use of it..
This program needs a midi interface and midi instrument to work, so, we
have not been able to test itfor ourselves, although we are waiting for
a report from some one who has the right hardware. It was written for
an A level Project, hopefully it will help Alex to get a good grade!
All I can say about the program is that when it loads, you get a screen
where you can set your preferences for your keyboard. Apparently, the
graphics change when you select different voices on the midi instrument.
More about this program as soon as we get it!
This is a new fractal generator which will produce patterns which could
be used as backdrops etc. It has many options so that you can configure
it to produce patterns in different ways and a palette changer so that
you can create subtle pictures in hues of the same colour or mind
blowing flourescent patterns! Also on the disk is a program which will
catalogue the contents of a disk and save them to disk to be used as a
quick reference. The catalogue created can then be viewed fron an icon
in Workbench. An example is on the disk. To fill up the disk, there is
also a font reader which will list all the fonts available in the
presently assigned workbench source. A good value disk.
This is the PD issue of one of the latest Amos Magazines. Try it out,
then if you are a member of Totally Amos, you will be able to claim a
discount on future issues.
Includes lots of articles, hints, tips and reviews etc.
============== COMPILED & NON-AMOS ANIMS & DEMOS=================
Fillet The Fish
This is a very funny cartoon on a disc featuring Fillet the Fish. I
won't give the story away as it would spoil it. The way this disc has
been produced is very good and the animation is brilliant. Quite a long
story. There is also a cameo appearance by Puggs (from the other
cartoon-on-disc Puggs In Space).
Puggs In Space
This is extremely funny. It is basically an animated cartoon on a disc
but is very, very, very long! It follows the adventures of Puggs who
lands on Earth and gets in all sorts of trouble. The animation is
superb (especially when he electrocutes himself). This disc is so good
you will want to play it over and over again.
A 1 megabyte Real 3D demo (ray traced in HAM mode) featuring the words
Real Pinball and some balls bobbing up and down in water. The animation
and the effect achieved in it are very impressive.
Two versions of this demo are on the disc - a 1 megabyte version and a
1/2 megabyte version. Basically it is the word Harlequin on the screen
many times in different colours and the screen rotates. Not extremely
This is a very nice 3D demo featuuring 3D spheres. Very smooth vectors
with good, realistic movements. Includes a 3D Poi-Poi demo (remember
the demo). 2nd part is a story with fantastic graphics and 3D effects.
Very long demo with nice graphics and music.
This Syntex demo has been around for a while, so I hear, and now it's
here for you all. It is, of course of a very high standard and features
superb animations and effects. A must for Syntex Fans. Written with
Amos, no source.
Please note, this is a 3 disk production, you must order GPD137 & 138
as well. This Demo is in this General section as it does not contain
source code although it was written with Amos. Fanatix have provided a
wealth of demos showing lots of effects from scrollers to real time
plasma screens. Choice of which to view is made by moving the joystick
up and down the list. If you have just 1 meg of memory, then you must
disable your second drive, if you have one. For those with 2+ meg, 2nd
drive is accepted.
Electronic Cad Demo
This demo replaces all previous E-cad and Protyper demos. It contains
the new price list.
This is a light show demo which is best viewed in the dark to capture
the best effect. It does come with a health warning, serious, the
flashing lights can trigger fits in people who are affected by bright
lights. No source, but a very effective display nevertheless, from the
author of Cyad and Cyadonia.
This is the latest demo from FANATIX. All the coding was done by Jag.
It is, as usual, of a high standard and contains some interesting
routines for you to look at and try to emulate. The inter-section
screen rolls on and off and the commentary is in the form of a circle
scroll. There are yin yangs flying around, a wavy rotating bar , ghost
vectors, 3-D filled vectors, (no Amos 3-D) more bobs and an interesting
scroll effect. As well as this there is a coppersplit bob and a
transparent light sourced cube. All this is topped off by the credits
and messages. By the way, it's reset protected, so you have to turn off
your Amiga when you've finished watching the demo! Good value for money
- lots of things to watch - and all on one disk!
This is the first demo from a new French demo crew. They have lots to
look at in this demo which is really very good. The action is smooth
and there are plenty of routines which British crews will try to beat,
I'm sure! My Amiga has 2 meg, but I still had to disable Df1: to get
this to run! Should not be a problem on 600's or Plus's.
A new demo from Paul Harthen. A great demo to get you thinking "How did
he do that?"
Vectors R Us Christmas Pack
This is the final demo from Fanatix. This is a superb demo from the
boys. It is really smooth and has some fantastic effects for you to
look and marvel at. We#re sorry to see the end of Fanatix, but wish
them luck in the future.
A new demo from Grafic reality. It's nicely done with some interesting
effects which may not be original, but nevertheless are worth looking
This is a 2 disk demo from Syntex sent to us by a French PD Library.
Syntex have apparently turned to Assembler for most of their recent
demos, which could explain why we don't get them direct any more. Kill
df1: to run this demo.
A single disk demo from the Famous French crew.
We Are The Lamers

DISK DEMO, ORDER GPD207 AND 208 (4.00p)
This demo was produced by Shockwave as a Fanatix release. It has the
usual high standard of effects expected from this group. Look out for
Nick's routines in TA12 and onwards!

of new effects for you to look at. I'm told that if you would like to

ever, but has everyone wondering if it is done in pure Amos!
The program on this disk is properly named Bill's Magic Colour Cycler.
It's a series of coloured patterns which change and gyrate in the form
of a slideshow. It's something you could use as disco lights! There
are options to adjust brightness etc to make it blend in with your
colour scheme if you so wish. The comment on the disk label says `Don't
leave earth without it!' - As if I would!

games then theis disc is a must as this is a top quality Public Domain
Star Trek Game
Please order disk DV14 as well as this is a two disc set. This is the

Very nice platform game. Guide Freddy, helping him to collect the pies
but you must avoid the baddies at all costs. Nice graphics and music
make this a must to add to your PD games collection.
This is a very good role playing game which is set in variable terrain
between warring robots. It is a complex game and features lots of
possibilities for different settings. If you like role playing games
then I am sure you will enjoy playing this game.
This disc contains Blizzard and some small pieces of music. Blizzard is
a very fast horizontal shoot-em-up not too different from Uridium (that
brings back memories). The music on the disc is a collection of small
pieces but are very good never the less. There are 9 in all. Plus
users please note:- Type exec start from Cli.
This disc contains two versions of Quiz Master, Genius 1 and Genius 2

graphics, SORRY! - computer version of the board game. Plus users

This is a very complicated role playing game that is extremely well
presented but takes ages to complete. You start off by building your
character then wander around a village buying things and then make your
way into the caverns. Very good game.
This is a fantastic text only adventure. Everything has had so much
detail put into it including the parser which is very good. If you have
ever played one of Jim's adventures you will know that there is no need
for graphics as everything is described so well and in so much detail.
If you are an adventure buff then this is for you. Plus users please
note:- Use from workbench, will work with perseverance.
This is another top quality adventure by Jim MacBrayne. This time the
search is on for the Holy Grail. Again there is no need for graphics as
everything is described so well in the text. The game is extremely
atmospheric and the humour in places is very good. Again this is a must
for adventure fans everywhere! Plus users please note:- Will work from
workbench with perseverance
Now here's a game based on an old idea but with a modern twist. The
game is basically a BoulderDash clone but instead of collecting diamonds
you must collect bottles of your favourite tipple! The games music and
graphics are superb and the gameplay itself is lightning fast. There
are lots and lots of levels to keep you amused for ages. Game fan?
This is a must!
This disc contains the Colossus adventure and a very complex adventure
writer that is in no way suited to people not suited to the Amiga or
adventures. It is not very easy to use. The disc also includes a text
adventure called World.
Very good BreakOut game with all the modern tweaks such as expandable
bat, lasers, slow up etc. as well as some pitfalls such as compress bat
or explode! The game is very well presented with good music and
graphics. I know many versions of BreakOut have been programmed but
this one stands out from the rest.
This is a brilliant computerised version of the old Chinese Checkers
board game. Basically the board is a six pointed star and you have to
move your checkers over to the opposite side of the board first. Very
enjoyable game to either play against the computer or against 5 other
There are three popular board games that have been converted to the
Amiga. The games are Klondike, Cleudo and Monopoly. All the games are
very good copies of their board game counterparts. Plus users please
note:- Cludeo works from the Cli others need Amiga basic.
The disc contains a rolling demo of the forthcoming game by Linel. The
demo features brilliant sound and graphics showing how good the
scrolling shoot em up will be and it does look impressive. Try before
StarFleet is a simple game written with the Shoot Em Up Construction
Kit. It is basically a simple blast featuring some quite good graphics
but the game is not technically amazing!
Very professionally presented disc featuring Mayhem. Mayhem is a flip
screen game in which you must guide your ship safely through caverns,
deactivating doors on your way etc. The graphics and sound are very
good. Also on the disc is a vector demo and instructions on playing the

this time with a nice level editor, Welltrix - this is a variation on
the popular game Tetris but this time in 3D, China Challenge - remove
all the tiles by matching pairs, Mechanoid - this is a spoof version of
asteroids in which you shoot faces and Quattro - a fairly nice version
This disc contains three Shoot Em Up Construction Kit games. WolfBane -
space shoot-em-up, 109 - World War II shoot-em-up, Death - another space
shoot-em-up. It must be said that the quality of these games is not
very good as SEUCK was not a very good package in the first place!
Five classic games have been converted to the Amiga to make up this
disc. The games are Cleudo, Othello, Klondike, Cribbage and Canfield.
Quite a good collection of games.
Whizzy's quest is a very proffessional platform game featuring nice
graphics, animation and sound. The game is very nice to play and is
full of humour. The disc is worth it for this game alone but there is
also a graphical adventure called Castle Of Doom on the disc which isn't
There are two games on this disc. Metagalactic Llamas, a conversion of
a Jeff Minter game, is a strange game where you have to shoot spiders
coming down from the top of the screen with your Llama! Paranoid is yet
another Breakout game (when will it all end!) with a level editor. This
is extremely fast.
This is a very old role playing game and the graphics aren't up to much
but if you are a fan of role playing games then you will love it as it
is very in-depth. I have been playing it for ages and there are lots of
places to explore. Even though this is old it is still very enjoyable.
There are nine (yes 9) games crammed onto this disc. The games are
Number Fumbler, LadyBug, Bug, Paccy, Galaxians, Shootout, Tetris
Metallica, Pharaohs Curse and Cosmoroids. Most of the games are very
well presented and all of them are very enjoyable. This is an essential
Three well presented old classic games on one disc all selectable from a
novel menu. The games are: REBOUND - a BreakOut game (how original)
with a level editor (played horizonally instead of vertically which
makes a change, INVADERS - a nice game in the style of defender on the
old Atari console and GRIDRUNNER - another nice version of a classic
game. Very fast. Good games disc.
This is a Stockmarket game in which you have to make money and control
companies. If money allows you can also visit the Insiders Club to gain

instructions are included on the disc. Quite a good game. Plus users
please note: Will load from workbench.

different searches to be completed, AirAce - well presented
Shoot-Em-Up-Construction-Kit game with nice graphics, Mosaic - tile game
in which you have to aim to connect colours as much as possible and
StopWatch - a timer with lap facility etc.
This War Game simulates the Napoleonic War. There are no graphics but
the game is highly detailed and is quite complex. Good game but would
take a long time to complete.

CRobots - a game based on 'C' programming, Death - shoot-em-up, SB - a

This disc contains 3 different card games. The games are Harp, Plait
and Queens and are very well presented and easy to play. There is also
a game called push on this disc which is not too unlike Pukadu.
A weird game this one. You control a little character and you have to
shoot different type of blocks at a square made up of these blocks,
getting rid of the same block type! Sounds simple eh? Well it is but
the game is extremely playable and very addictive. Nice presentation
Eight nice games on this disc: Train Set - Build a track and watch the

cards in this Amiga version of Concentration, Conquest - war simulator
similar to Risk, CheatSheet - lots and lots of game cheats, SolitareX -
card game of Solitare, Memmon - shows memory available. Nice collection
This is another old role playing game played and looking much the same
as Hack. The graphics aren't too brilliant but the game is large and
complex and allows for hours of playing. If you like games like Hack
and Moria then you will probably love playing this game.
A nice collection of four games: Downhill Challenge - downhill ski
game, PacMan87 - early version of Pacman, MetaGalactic Llamas - strange
Llama shooting game, Welltrix - variation along the Tetris theme.
Although most of the games don't have stunning graphics they are all
Six top quality games all squeezed onto one disc! Yes it's true! Girl
Action - version of Galaxians, Missile Command - nice version of the
classic, Maze Game - guide yourself through a 3D maze, Invaders - need I
say anything?, Bally2 - sequel to the screen painting game and Think

and destroy the opponents tank, Rollerpede - very nice version of the
classic Centepede, Amigoids - good version of Asteroids, Cave Runner -
very fast Rockford type game and Avatris - three people can play Tetris
at once with this game!
There are three Shoot Em Up Construction Kit games on this disc so all
the gameplay is basically the same. The games are Go Looly - a cute
Shoot-Em-Up, Retaliator - War plane Shoot-Em-Up and Raid - a helicopter
blast. The graphics, however, on all the games are very good.
Another four top quality PD games for you to play. Destination Moonbase

Construction Kit game with nice graphics, H-Ball - another Breakout
clone (when will it end?), Number Fumbler - re-arrange the numbers in
the square into the correct order and Snake Pit - a centipede type game,
eat the mushrooms to get longer.
This game is similar to 'Master of the town'. You have to smash street
lights and windows to progress through the game.
This program generates crosswords automatically or you can create your
own via the menu. There is also an option to print out puzzles, you can
also save puzzle if one is too hard to complete in one session. There
is also a dictionary on disk.
This disk contains 5 very good P.D. games. They are Dad,Connex, Towers
of Hanoi, Reversii and Trippin. Dad is a tile sliding game where you
have to move one large tile from one end of the grid to the other.
Connex is a four in a row type game. Towers is a logic game where you
move disks from the first to the last peg without putting a large disk
on top of a smaller one. Reversii is a traditional Othello type game.
Trippin is a pipe line type game where you connect electronic switches.
There are four games for you to play. They are Car, Llamatron, Power
pong and Xfi. Car is a car racing game. Llamatron is the now famous
'Jeff Minter' classic blast'em game. Power Pong is a fast ping pong
game. Xfi is a tron clone where you control a line which you guide to a
target before your opponent reaches it.
This disk contains six more P.D. games. They are Ball, Asteroids,
Twintris, Blockout, Squamble and Amigatration. Ball is a breakout type
game. Asteroids is a version of the classic asteroids game. Twintris
is a 2 player tetris type game. Blockout is a sideways breakout type
game. Squamble is a plane arcade game. Amigatration is a pairs type
game with several levels of complexity.
There are two games on this disk. They are China challenge II and Amiga
columns. China challenge is a chinese puzzle game, good graphics.
Amiga columns is another tetris clone but this time you have to match
blocks of a pattern inside each block.
This game was written withthe '3D con kit'. It is a graphic adventure
where the aim is to disarm the warhead before the computer launches the
missile. Looks like a very good game.
This is the pretiest Tetris clone I've seen. It's perfectly suited for
beginners and kids as it's not as fast as some other versions - well the
first three levels anyhow! The display shows a 3-towered castle, the
game drops shapes in the two gaps between these towers. In the single
player game, the second space gives game statistics, ie how many of each
shape has been given. The central tower shows the game score and lines
completed. At the top of this tower there are two tiny doors, one for
each player. A lttle man is shown here and if you pause the game he
leans against the doorpost and tosses a coin to amuse himself until play
restarts! A very nice touch. This game is written with Amos and
compiled. It is in this section as there was no room for source code on
the disk. Recommended.
This is a shareware version of the ever popular Invaders game. The
graphics are very nicely done and very colourful. This version would be
nice to add to a child's collection of classic games as it is possible
for even a novice like me to get a decent way into the game before
dying! This game was written with AMOS.
Operation Lemming V1.32
This is a charity disk, all profits are sent to the RNIB. Blast the
little creatures off the screen just for fun!
J. R. Evans
This shareware game is a fast car race with a choice of courses. It's
fast and furious and has been tested by our own computer test driver who
thinks it's great. The display is 3-D and you feel as if your rocketing
through the fire and water as you try to complete the course.
Which Way Out
This game is for ONE MEG CHIP RAM OR MORE!!!!! It is a game written
using Aaron Fothergill's TOME and compiled. You have to travel around
on a scooter to complete the quest. The source-only version is
available in the APDL for those of you who own TOME.
This game comes from Australia and was written using Amos and machine
code. It's a great game with Egyptian-style graphics, it's a sort of
4-way block-matching game where you have a pattern of tiles that you
have to eliminate by matching each one with the tile that appears on any
one of the four sides of the grid. The tiles are matched by pressing
Fire when the correct tiles are in line. This description doesn't do
justice to the game which is well recommended. Shareware.
NEEDS GPD133 as well. Fanatix have sent us their FIRST GAME. This is
a departure from the very popular demos which have been on the library
for over a year. It has been put into this section as it doesn't
contain the source code, but it was written with AMOS. This is a space
game which is very professionally produced. There is an excellent intro
which tells you the story before you are taken to the options. Here you
have the choice of 3 levels of play, the harder the option, the better
the reward on completing the game! It's a space game where you have a
different task to complete in each level before getting to your goal.
In level 1 you have to dodge the asteroids... wow, is it fast and
furious! I've not managed to get past this yet, but I'm sure the rest
is just as action packed. Well worth the price of two disks!
Amos Games Disk 1
This is a games disk which contains six games, many of which will be
familiar to you. They include Glassback (a platform game) Snake Byte,
Minefield, Lightcycles & Life Expectancy. This is a shareware
production, well worth the registration fee.
Battle Beyond Infinity
Mark has contributed much to the APDL. This is one of his latest games,
and is a space/strategy program. It can be played by 1-3 players who
must buy ships, position them and the choose which weapon to use to try
and blast his opponents away. The interesting feature here is that the
order of play is created randomly, so that player 1 does not have any
advantage over player 3 when the firing stage is reached. A good game
that must have taken a lot of planning. The author is willing to
customise the game to your requirements for a registration fee, details
are on the disk.
This is an Amos version of the Lightcycles/tron games that were popular
a while back. This one caters for up to four players. Each 'race' has
four runs, after each of these you are taken to a shop where you can
spend your winnings on extra features like bombs, invisible trails etc.
There are five levels and after each race you are shown two score
tables, one shows how the bikers fared in that race, the second is the
overall championship table. Nice presentation of an old game.
This is a game, written with Amos, from France. Raphael kindly
translated the instructions in English for us. It is a sideways
scroller shoot'em up. Great graphics add to this excellently presented
game. It has 5 levels and an end of game animation. There are plenty
of control options - jumping to any level - the graphics are different
per level - fill up your energy meter - use shield etc. This is a great
addition to the library, the code is not provided as Raphael wishes to
do more to the game.
Here we have a football management game where you can be the manager of
Falkirk or Man United. Buy and sell your players, pick your team and
sit back and read the commentary as the match gets under way. Make your
team the champs with this well presented game. (Compiled Amos)
This is a collection of Quiz games done in the style of Pub Trivia
machines. The subjects are varied and the games play really well. This
is a very playable disk which is a good addition to any games
collection. (Compiled Amos)
This is a sideways scrolling shoot'em up and is S.I.'s first game. It
is very playable. Shoot the aliens down to get onto the next level.
This is a bomber type game with really souped up ideas. You are allowed
to choose your weapons and you will earn better weapons as you progress.
The graphics are lovely and the gameplay excellent. (Compiled Amos)
This disk contains 3 games - Arena, Card Sharp and Robot Sumo. Arena is
a space shoot'em up, Card Sharp is a card playing program and Robot Sumo
is a sumo wrestling game where robots battle to get theur opponent out
of the ring.
Spaced Out 2
This is a playable demo of a forthcomming release from SI. It's got
great promise and is very useable as it is. It looks nothing like
Spaced Out 1, although the gameplay is the same ie sideways scrolling
shoot'em up, but it looks so much better as it will be set in different
scenarios in different levels.
This game was sent to us from Playfield! which is an Amos newsletter in
Florida, USA. It was written for the magazine and this is an enhanced
version which spots PAL or NTSC and adjusts the screen depth
accordingly. The idea is to make the man walk around the platform
screens killing the bugs and collecting spray cans. There are various
other features like acid rain which kills you, and a magic toupe which
protects the wearer from some of the nasties! Good stuff, I hope to
form a link with this group to bring some American programs to you.
Derby Day by Leslie Wigmore. This is a horse racing game where you
choose your horse, place your bet and watch the horses run. You start
with 10 pounds, if you are lucky, you end up rich, if not, it's best to
go home and try your luck another day. Drawmore by Cybornetics. Did
you ever play the kids' party game where 1 person draws the head then
folds the paper over, the next draws the body, the next the legs, then
you open up the paper to see the result? Well this is the electronic
version and it is good fun. There1s a mini art package to aid drawing,
and you can even print out the result. It's not exactly shareware as
Rob asks only for PD disks as payment, Well worth it! KI by S. Teague

Lateral Quizzes 1 & 2
Dr John Foley
These 2 quizzes are compiled, parts 3,4 & 5 are in the APDsection (APD
475) If you liked Catchphrase on TV, then you will like these. Each
quiz can take about 30 minutes to complete, but you can choose to start
at a point 1/2 way through if you wish. Our kids love these disks, some
questions will beat an adult's warped sense of humour, but on the whole,
even a 10 year old can get a lot of fun solving the puzzles.
George's Quest For A Nose
Shareware - only 2.50p for the map editor, which is well worth
registering for! The story behind this platform game is weird to say
the least, but it boils down tothe fact that there are people whose
noses have been turned into trumpets, due to being forced to watch too
much Coronation Street. George has escaped and has to find his way to
the only nose replaceent centre which is in Birmingham. It really is a
great game, I enjoyed it, and managed to get past the first level.
Joystick controlled. Well worth adding tando your game collection.
This is a good and fair shareware disk, so please support the
Another value Shareware game a mere 2.50p for the full version! It's a
puzzle type game where you have a grid with bones, children and other
things scattered on it. The Gobblers are hungry beasts who gobble
anything they walk over, so your job is to protect the children and
guide the Gobblers to the bones. The Gobblers can only move in straight
lines and so you can force them to move towards the bones by taking away
squares. It's a bit difficult to explain, but believe me, it's a great
game. This version has 8 levels and if you enjoy it, then it is well
worth 2.50p for the ful version.
Heavy Battle Tank
Another good game from Mark. This time we have a tank battle game where
you have to blast your enemy's position.
A very nicely presented game where you are a warship whose mission is to
clear the area of submarines. At the same time the enemy is bombarding
you with an air attack. Quite addictive and pleasant to play. The
number of Subs to bomb increases with each level.

have guessed, the game involves numbers. There are three difficulty
levels, level 1 isn't too bad, but Level 3 will tax everyone who hasn't
got a calculator for a brain! In this game you have to build up columns
of bricks each of which has a number to make up the target number at the
bottom of the screen. The hard part is remembering the existing totals
for each column so that you can out the next brick in the best place -
if you exceed the target number, then that colomn is 'dead' until a
'zap' brick comes along which will allow you to wipe out the whole
column. Getting the exact target number will give you a new number to
create. 500 and 1200 compatible- there are two speeds set and basically
whichever Amiga you choose will alter the speed. Shareware registration
will get you the full version, this one trips out before a level is

offensive! See the docs for info!

reliever where you have to use your mouse by shooting the alien bugs as

square, the number is added to your score, a red square deducts from the

This is a tutorial disk for DPaint. Gator is German and so the disk is
bilingual. The English is very good and although quaint in places
presents no problems. The tutorial uses DPaint 3, mainly because v4 was
bugged when it was produced. Gator deals mainly with the creation of
logos for demos, but I am sure that there are verry many handy hints on
the disk which will be of great use to all potential artists. The
picture screens are .iff, so can be loaded into Dpaint and played around
with. This disk comes highly recommended by Peter Paton, a Totally Amos
member, who sent it into us.

quid off the professional guitar video produced by Lee. Full details

knowledge of guitar playing and she found it extremly useful. All the
chord for the song are shown before you start a song then you can play
along with the video as it shows each chord change and the song is sung.

ages! It's an Ansi writer. If you do not know what this is, it is a
