superb (especially when he electrocutes himself). This disc is so good
you will want to play it over and over again.
Now here's a game based on an old idea but with a modern twist. The

performed without the use of the keyboard, just by using the mouse by
pointing and clicking. It also contains lots of commands that are
normally not available in the CLI such as ARCing etc. This version has
been coupled with MessyDOS to allow you to use MS-DOS format discs in
SID so you can read text files, copy files etc. to and from MS-DOS

easier I suggest you buy it! This is the latest version of this very

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.

graphics. I know many versions of BreakOut have been programmed but
this one stands out from the rest.

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

a Jeff Minter game, is a strange game where you have to shoot spiders

is extremely fast.
What can I say? All of you who have been dying to turn your Amiga into
the height of modern technology now is your chance. I must admit though
it is a good program and emulates the Spectrum very well. Also on the

lots of different copy modes.
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

those of you having trouble finding the right driver for your printer.

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

dying! This game was written with AMOS.

used by the followers of Krishna. It also contains the addresses of
centres around the world.
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.
Copper Colourz V2.3
This is a new Shareware Copper Editor which the author says is set to
rival Rainbow Warrior. It looks good and is easy to use with very many
extra features. This is the latest version of Yazoo's program, updated
July 1992. This program was written and compiled using AMOS.
Super Sound II
This is a PD version of a really great sound sample editor. It does
everything you'd find in a full priced package, and it's really easy to
use. You can mess about with sounds to your heart's content, changing
the octave, cutting bits out, fading in and out, brightening the sample,
making it metallic, and lots more besides. It does the whole job bar
making the coffee. A good way into the world of Sound Editing.
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!
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.
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.
GPD136 & GPD137 & GPD 138
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.
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.
New Canon Printer Drivers
This is an official drivers disk from Canon. Load via Workbench.
Canon Bubblejet Drivers
This official Canon drivers disk contains drivers for Bubble Jet
printers. Load via Workbench.
This is a disk catalogue program which was written using Ncommand to
create its interface. The style is WB 2, and it looks very efficient.
This program is shareware and your registration fee gets you a much
improved version with enhanced features. This is a very user friendly
way to store the details of your disk collection, and will show you what
can be achieved with NCommand.
Harbinder Singh Ghag
This is a text editor that will give you all the features of a
commercial text editor. It's been tested and works really well, just
the thoing you need to write into the APDL or to TA! It saves as a
TurboText file or as Ascii which will load into other
processors/editors. Well recommended.
This is a disk full of proggies written in Amos which was reviewed in
Amiga Computing a couple of months ago. It has now reached us and is
available for your use. Picturesque is a shareware art package which
you can use just as you would DPaint. For a registration fee of ten
pounds you will get a version that you can run at the same time as Amos
so that you can flip from one to the other. AAlso on the disk is an
early version of Daisy Paint which is a paint & draw program for the
younger artist and a Smiley slide puzzle game. The programs are all
well presented and worth having. Full docs are on the disk, as is the
source code for the Smiley puzzle.
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 in the utilities section as 3 of the 4 programs are utilities,
the last is a game. The utes are as follows:- NotizBlock - this is a
calendar/diary program which will allow you to enter appointments for
any hour of any day. It looks great and will be a useful addition to
your collection. AIFFPaint is an art package, again nicely done, Ambos
V1.29 is an upgrade of an earlier release, it's a Cli mask. If you want
some entertainment, then have a go at Magic Turn which is a strategic
puzzle game, which will get your greycells working! Docs are provided
in English and German.
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.
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?"
Account Master V2.0
This program will keep your home accounts in order. You enter in the
transactions and the program will sort out the balance for you. You can
even put thing in in advance so that you do not forget them, then
activate the transaction at the right time. A very handy well presented
program which will be of great use to those of us who can't wait for the
monthly or quarterly statement! Sorry, it cannot arrange overdrafts or
hack into your local bank! Well recommended.
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)
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.
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)
Music Demo #1
This is a group new to the Amos scene. The five tracks are played from
a compiled player. There are 5 pieces of music to choose from all of
which are on the gentler side of computer music, I love it!
Music Demo 2
This is the second music demo and contains 4 upbeat tracks played from a
compiled player .
Music Demo 3
This is the third music demo containing a further 5 tracks from Sudden
Impact. The styles of music on this demo are varied.
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.
A new demo from Grafic reality. It's nicely done with some interesting
effects which may not be original, but nevertheless are worth looking
GPD171 & GPD172
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
Good demo from Syntex, nevertheless a mickey take of 'lesser' demo
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.
Dynamite Sums/ Amos Base
Complete the sums before the dynamite explodes! The second prog on the
disk is a database.
A disk of music for you to listen and use from the Aussie Amos club
A disk of fonts to add to your collection.
Printer Utes & .iff Fonts
Useful printer utils and some fonts to add to your collection.
This disk contains three very different programs. Stuart Taylor sent in
'TABMASTER' which is a guitar program which if you enter a musical note,
will tell you where to play it on the guitar. It can be set so that the
note is shown on any of the 6 strings. John Kinsella gives us 'HECTIC
II ' which is an addictive puzzle game for 1 or 2 players. The playing
screen is a grid containing red and green numbers, 1 player can only
move horizontally, the other vertically. If you click on a green
square, the number is added to your score, a red square deducts from the
score. It's hard to explain, but it's a great game! Last but not
least, My Dairy is presented by David Meager, age 13. It's a well
presented program which you use to make notes as you would in a diary.
This is a good VFM (Value For Money) disk.
This program will run on 1/2 meg machines, but only just, but if you are
reading this, you must have 1 meg anyway! This ute will take in
addresses from a database and use the information to print address
bels. There is a second version on the disk which is specifically for
Troni-cad V1 Demo
This demo program was sent into us from France to show what the full
version can do. It allows you to design electrical curcuit diagrams and
print out the results. The output is very professional. the program is
easy to use and would be useful to anyone who needs decent diagrams of
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
this is a midi program which allows you to store the instruments from
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.
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.

If anyone has played 'Minesweeper' on the PC (Windows 3.1) then you will
know how addictive this game can be! This is a long overdue Amiga
version which plays really well and is just as addictive. Well
recommended, well presented version of the original game.
Games & Demos
The Games on this disk are:- Pyromania & Mean Genie by Frank Dudley,
Light Bikes by Aaron McCormick. The Demos, All by Derek Piper are
Colour Rave Demo, Funline Demo and Hardline Demo. In Pyromania, you
have to fly around lighting candles as they move around the screen. In
Mean Genie, you are on a magic carpet and have to bomb ghosts whilst
avoiding snakes. Light bikes is a 1 or 2 player version of the Tron
game. The Demos are all colourful and should give you some ideas to
Lateral Quizes 6-10
Dr John Foley
This disk contains the compiled versions of John the Doc's latest
quizes. These will keep you well amused on a rainy day! Suitable for
This is an educational version of the now classic Tetris. As you might
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
Guitar Tuner Utility
Another guitar utility to add to your collection, this program helps you
to tune up your guitar properly with on screen diagrams and sounds.
Very stylishly presented by Lee. This is shareware, the registration is
a mere 2 quid and for that you will get a voucher which will give you 2
quid off the professional guitar video produced by Lee. Full details
are available in the ads on this disk. Lee sent us a copy of his video
and it was dutifully tried out by our 10 year old who has a small
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.
The disk is well recommended, the video also, although you will have to
send to Lee for that!
This is the first demo from Karl Roberts, Icky. and contains a wealth
of new effects for you to look at. I'm told that if you would like to
know how a particular routine was created, then all you have to do is
contact Karl at the address on the disk and he will help out. This disk
is very full!
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!
Someone In Australia!
This is a very good disk copier which was sent to us from Australia a
while back. A useful addition to your utilities if you do not have a
Compiled Amos Games
This disk contains programs which were sent in, or requested to be
distributed as compiled versions. Space invasion is from Kev Gallagher,
and is an Amos version of the classic game. Invaders is a slightly
different invaders game where the aliens move horizontally in single
rows while you zap them, this is by David Christian. Ben Addis sent us
in Amigaclock which is an alarm clock proggie - full explanation given.
Fabrizio Bazza gives us the last 2 progs on this disk. Mefistofele is a
card game and Nag is a snake in a maze game where the bad snkes are
hell-bent on eating you a segment at a time!
This is a dungeon game where the aim is to free the princess from the
nasties who live underground. Easy to control with plenty of fighting
and treasures to find before you find the heroine. There is another
version of the game available which I'm told is a bit 'naughty' but not
offensive! See the docs for info!
Tele Titler 2
The lowres version of this program can be found in the APD section. It
is, as the name suggests, a titling utility which has loads of features.
This program was written with Amos Pro and is a version of the Logo
language used by schools etc. There are ful instructions on the disk and
a Help facility which can be called up at any time. I haven't had time
to put this to much of a test yet, but what I've seen, looks good!
Compiled Amos Games
Quasi, by Paul Young, is a hunchback game where Quasi Modo has to walk
along a wall collecting bonuses and avoiding hazards to ring the bell at
the other side of the screen. In the Target is a game from Italy. It
is a shoot'em up where you have to line up ships, planes etc in your gun
sights and shoot'em. Bonuses are also available in this game set on
three levels of ability. Works rather fast on a 1200. Suicide Mission
is from David Christian. Here you are a helicopter pilot trying to
shoot down the enemy and avoiding getting shot down yourself. The
source for this game is on an Amos progs disk.
Tetrix, Underground, XFI

worth the registration fee which is less than a fiver.
Animal Land 1
This is an educational memory game with animals as its theme.
Ben has decided that this proggie is to be PD after holding onto it for
ages! It's an Ansi writer. If you do not know what this is, it is a
utility which allows you to `paint' using characters from the keyboard
to create coloured messages/pictures such are seen on Bulletin boards
etc. It's easy to use and useful for those wanting to design messages.
Demo showing big Fonts for Ctext, available as shareware
In the Target
This is a game from Italy where you have to shoot at targets using a
cross-hair gunsight. Not the greatest graphics, but the game is good as
a first effort.

Thanks to Brian of Vally PD for supplying me with a disk of Virus
Killers which work on the A1200! Several Killers plus full docs.
GPD240 & GPD241
This is a two disk American football management game written in Amos.
It looks very impressive, but as I don't have a clue about the game, I
find it hard to describe!
The Dragon Compilation
14 year old Michael has sent us in his first shareware game compilation
disk. It contains 3 games, Dragon Sim, which is a flight sim view
dogfight game where you, the `pilot' are seated on the back of a dragon
instead of inside a plane. Sewer is described as a mindless stress
reliever where you have to use your mouse by shooting the alien bugs as
they come along the sewerpipe. It might relieve your stress, but your
mouse will need a rest at a health farm to recover! Dragon 2 is an
isometric two player dogfight type game. Good fun for two players,
difficult for one!
Also on the disk are a couple of demos and vista pics.
This is a demo version of a Licenseware game distributed by F1

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

colour scheme if you so wish. The comment on the disk label says `Don't

You can cut and paste rythms, change instruments and load in a couple of
previously saved scores to hear what this program can do.In the full
version, available from Malcolm for a fiver, there is a choice of kit
which will make things even more fun! There are lots of facilities,
some of which have been disables in this version, but there are plenty
here to give you an excellent idea of how much fun you can have. This
program is very well presented and is easy to use and does what it says
it will! Have all the fun of being the next Phil Collins without the
expense of a full drum kit!
