dr. strange music
dr. strange
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.

zimmersound, Drums

demented designs
demented designs
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,
quest, who.

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
Andrew Elia
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
some reason.

Music Equaliser

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.

decade, jungle, mod4, short, urock,

Ronnie Simpson

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
personal censorship.

janet jackson

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

Not a bad scrolling demo with some useful routines.

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!!

armageddon demo
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 demo
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
different doors.

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.

dreamers 5.1

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
Night Fiction.

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
more parts.

time demo
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
be missing!

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

beer 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
Gary Shilvock
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!

structured insanity
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
Weird Science
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.

fizzy pop

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!

reinca demo
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.

MTV Demo
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!

Judgement Day
 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
Amivision programs.

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

Jabberwok Demo
Robert Tansley
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.

Celestial Visions
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.

Megademo 6
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
Rainbow Software
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.

Terrax Demo

This  little  demo  shows some interesting screens which could be useful
for beginners to look at.  Smooth demo well presented.

Cubic Demo
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.

Alpha Demo
Adrian Jenkins
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.

Golden Ages
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!
Interesting demo.

The After Time Demo
Andy Paul
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
Paul Harthen
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!

Brain Damage
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!)

Digital Orgasm
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
C. Paterson
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.

No Refund
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
Aaron McCormick

       ================ AMOS GAMES WITH SOURCE =================

treasure search
peter hickman
Hunt   for  treasure  in  this  clever  educational  co-ordinates  game.
Excellent  sound  and graphics make this game fun for everyone from 2 to

super quiz
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.

ronnie simpson
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
playing it.

Dynamite dick
adam leech
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.

chainsaw death
jaron collis
Very unusual two player game with excellent documentation.  A futuristic
board game which has you actually moving about a maze.

len tucker
Temporarily withdrawn
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
Len Tucker
This  is  a data disc containing more jigsaw puzzles.  The disc requires
APD103 - Pick-Up-A-Puzzle. (unavailable at present)

picture it
m. wellman

Two disc game.  Put the picture back together within a time limit.  Very
hypnotic effects as the pieces float around the screen.  Needs APD106.

cross fire
roger north
Very  nice game.  Keeps the kids occupied for ages!  Had good reviews in
the glossies.

delboy dodson
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.

aaron fothergill
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
patrik holstrom
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
graham woodcock
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
simon jewell
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
English instructions.

tile trial
dominic ramsey
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.

languages tutor
k. grigg
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.

master race
k. grigg
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.

colour.   Good  graphics.  MATCH_CARDS by C.  L.  Naylar is a one or two
player game based on "Concentration".  Match the cards.

Pair Crazy
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.

fruit machine
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
Various Authors
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.

demolition mission
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.

Missile Command
Daniel Bond
A simple game that will work on 1/2 megabyte machines.

amos quizmaster
mark venn
This is a shareware program.  Quite a good quiz game.

P-u-a-p Data Disc 2
Len Tucker
Yet  another  disc  of  jigsaw  puzzles  by  Len Tucker for use with his
program Pick-Up-A-Puzzle.  Needs APD103.

Jigmania Data 1
Len Tucker
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.
chris banks
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.

Dungeon Delver
Luke Miller
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.

Pixie Kingdom
Luke Miller
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
delboy dodson
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.

simon walklate
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
stealth software
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
Jim Campey
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
Jim Campey
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.

amos bingo
dave brown
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

Amos Asteroids
Mike Widdess
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.

chris hunt
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
David Boucher
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
program David.

M. Archer
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
Len Tucker
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).

War Simulator
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
company's products.

hobbs games vol i
david hobbs
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

robin hall

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

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.

wizard's domain
andy paul
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.

Battle Pong
Thorsten Hansen
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
fizzy pop
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.

Litter Busters

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.

Mariner's Mate
Daniel Smith
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
peter cartwright
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...
andreas andreou
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.

josh addison
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
addictive.  Recommended.

Hangman V2.0
Simon Walklate
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

fruit machine
gary hunt
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

T-2000 Software.
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

American Football
Composer Software
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
Peter Harris
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
action game.

Karate Worm
Mark Potter.
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'.

John O'Reilly.
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
dafter sentences.

Save The Trees
Mark Potter.
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.

Dynatrax Software.
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

Storyland II
David Alexander
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.

Squat's Revenge
Mark Potter
This  is  a Two player blast'em to death game.  Plug in two joysticks to
play this game.  (no longer shareware!)

Demon's Edge
Mark Potter
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.

Mike Austin
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.

G. Lund
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.

Jim Campey
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.

Games Disk
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.

Demons Domain
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!

Ian Parkinson
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.

Graham Lund
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.

Gory Story
Philip Richmond
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.

Card Games
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
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
Mark Potter
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.

Alliance II
Mark Potter
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
plays well.

Dave Cherrington
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
Paul Harthen
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!

Pictures (V2.0)
Graham Lund
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

Luke Miller
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
Dave Cherrington
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
Tony Kingsmill
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
Mark Potter
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
Stephen Binder
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
Graham Lund
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

Neil Wright
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.

Demons Breach
Mark Potter
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.

Arena 12
Paul Nordovics
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.

Stephan Scholz
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
From Australia
This is a 3-D game.

Blackjack & Tutor
From Australia
This  disk  will teach you how to play Blackjack and the will give you a

The Race

Previously known as AUS25.  This is a simple game where you have to make
2 characters race across the screen.

Duel And Underworld
From Australia
Previously known as AUS26.  Two games from Australia.

From Australia
A game of Invaders.

Dojo Fight
From Australia
Take out your agression in this two player Karate game where you have to
kick the sense out ofyour opponent.

Lotto Magic
From Australia
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.

From Australia
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!

From Australia
This is a vertically scrolling Space Shoot'em up game where, like on
earth you can only die once!

Close Quarters
This game needs two players. You can choose your weapons before setting
out to blow your enemy away.

From Australia
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.

Deep Space
From Australia

From Australia
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.

From Australia
The games on this disk are Arena and Crosswords.

Universal Racer
Mark Potter
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
G Wood
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
Craig Warner
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
Lee Bamber
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.

Tony Kingsmill
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.

Graham Lund
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

Games Disk
Michele Berionne
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..
Mark Potter
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!

This  disc contains PONTOON by Chris Labrum which is a bootable program.

Dungeon Shell
Allen Webb
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

Contains  code  for  an AMOS PDL catalogue with a full list of the discs

SoundTracker2.2  which  is  a better coded version of the converter, and
Spacker which is a small program for packing IFF pictures.

game.  Not too difficult either even I managed to complete a few levels!

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

Walklate.  Not much need to explain this one.

control  codes  in the procedures.  Chris has kindly provided the source
code  for  A.B.C.   as  well  as the compiled program, but unfortunately

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

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.

Max Chevalier
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
Mike Wellman
This is the sourcecode for a game written with TOME.  YOU WILL NEED TOME
travelling around a maze of tunnels on a hoverscooter.

Grapher & Life
David Head
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.

Amos Menus
Paul Harthen
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
Arne Neilsen
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
Simon Nicoll
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
TA Readers
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!

Pick'n'Mix 2
Ejber Ozkan
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
TA Readers
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
John Kinsella
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

G. Albrow
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!!)

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
John Kinsella
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  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 puzzles.

JD Extension
Joerg Dommermuth
This is an excellent extension for Amos Pro.  It is an extension full of
commands  which  look very interesting indeed.  The full docs are on the
disk,  but  are in German, so unless you can translate them, will not be
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.

                   ****CONTINUED ON NEXT RECORD****

 This  is  a new fast, and efficient extension for AMOS V1.3 and higher.
It  is  supposed to correct some bugs of AMOS and add some functions not
available in AMOS including New load and save routines.

F1 Licenseware
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.  

Neil Wright
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.

It  contains  articles,  or  info on what will be in it plus source code

Liberator extras
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
itself PD.

F1 Licenseware
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.

easyslide v1.0
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!

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

Screen Designer
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.

steven harrison

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,

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

Rainbow Warrior
Martyn Brown

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
serious users.

Amos Paint V3.7
Jounii Poullnen

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
jpm sound

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.

electrocad demo

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.

spectrapaint v3.1
twilight software

This  is  a  very  nice  painting  package that requires one megabyte of
memory to run.

Program Searcher
Roger Martensson

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
S. Griffiths

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.

documentation is included on the disc.

amos programs
j. kinsella

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.

Fractals Workshop
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
in fractals.

Amos Multipaint 2.0
Markus Nimtz

Usual  paint  package  facilities.   Press "Q" for help whilst using the
program.  Disc contains some pictures created using the package.

A. i. m.
Martin Donnelly

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
Mat Peck

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.

deluxe labeller
delboy dodson

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.
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.

colin naylar

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.

Font Display

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.

palette master

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

paint 1.16

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

TDC v1.1

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.

Coder V3.0
Andrew Elia

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
Jeff Tullin

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!

Chris Hurst

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.

Boot Utilities
Andrew Elia

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
Steven Rennocks

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
Europress Software

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
Andy Paul

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
Tony Swanwick

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.

M. Burbidge

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.
Sourcecode included.

Slideshow Constuction V2
John Kinsella

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.

U-tilities #1
Tony Swanwick

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
presented disk.

Volber's Utes
Volber Stepprath

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
onto HD.

Grab V3
David May

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
Philip Richmond

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.

Font X
Neil Wright

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
Pal Loberg

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)

Tom Laird

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.

Disk Filer
From Australia

This is a database which will keep a record of your disks.

Programmers WB Tool
From Australia

A disk which could be useful for Amos programmers.
Sneak-Preview         SQUASH_PROCEDURES.AMOS

Family History Database
Michael Tate

This  is  the  latest  PD version (v2.2f) of this popular database which
will keep the records of your ancestors in a tidy form.

Liberator Extras
Donald Cameron

This disk is a companion to the Liberator extension and so you will need
this extension to make use of it..

Alex Magney

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!  

J Houseley

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.

Paul Gumsley

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.

3D Demo

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.

Harlequin Demo

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

Virtual Worlds

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.

The Punishment
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.

Megademo 7

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
Derek Pell
This  demo  replaces all previous E-cad and Protyper demos.  It contains
the new price list.

Jamez Newcombe
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.

System Disorder
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!

Fumble Demo
Frederic Calendini
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.

Wonderland Demo
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.

Grafic Reality
A  new demo from Grafic reality.  It's nicely done with some interesting
effects  which  may  not be original, but nevertheless are worth looking

The Intruder
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.

Mutants Dreams
A single disk demo from the Famous French crew.

We Are The Lamers
Good  demo  from  Syntex,  nevertheless  a  mickey take of 'lesser' demo

Megademo 8
Fanatix  have  revived themselves and are now back in action on the Amos
Demo  scene!   This  is  their  comeback production and contains lots of
routines  which  you  can try to emulate in your own demos.  THIS IS A 2
DISK DEMO, ORDER GPD207 AND 208 (4.00p)

Substance Demo
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!

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!

Demos & Game
From Australia
  Headstrong Demo, Invoice Demo, Pacman. Two demos and a game.

Classified Demo
French  Demo,  very  stylish  demo  from  this  French  group  which has
impressed  Cubic  enough  to write a review of it for Totally Amos Issue

Another Boring Year
Syntex are still alive and producing Demos! This one is as impressive as
ever, but has everyone wondering if it is done in pure Amos!

Bill Tribble
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!

There  are  two  versions  of  this  Jeff  Minter game on the disc - a 1
megabyte version and a 1/2 megabyte version.  You basically must control
your  Llama  and  shoot at everything that appears to gain access to the
next level.  You can collect goats for extra power.  Nice game with lots

Seven Tiles
Alpha Flight
This  is a game not unlike the famous SpeedBall game.  The game features
great  graphics and music and fantastic, fast gameplay.  If you are into
games  then  theis disc is a must as this is a top quality Public Domain

Star Trek Game
Tobias Richter
Please  order  disk DV14 as well as this is a two disc set.  This is the
best  Star  Trek  game  to  appear  in  the  Public Domain.  It features
fantastic gameplay, great sampled sounds and brilliant graphics.  If you
are  a  Trekkie  or  like  space  games  then  get  this.   You won't be

Frantic Freddy

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.

Wraithed 1

This  disc  contains  two versions of Quiz Master, Genius 1 and Genius 2
editions.  Quiz Master is a simple quiz game like the ones found in Pubs
etc.   Also  on  the  disc  is  a fairly amuzing story about Crumpet the


Three  games  on  this  disc:   PACMAN87  - not a bad version of PacMan,
RETALIATOR - a Shoot Em Up Construction Kit game (blast everything) nice
graphics,  SORRY!   -  computer  version  of the board game.  Plus users
please note:- Retaliator will load from workbench.


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.

Golden Fleece
Jim Macbrayne
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.

Holy Grail
Jum Macbrayne
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.

Chinese Checkers

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

Board Games

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.

Necronom Demo
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
you buy!


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


Five  great  games  on  this disc.  Breaker - another Breakout clone but
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
of Tetris.


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.

Wizzy's Quest

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
games disc.


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.

Insiders Club

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
'inside'  information  to  help  you.   The  game  is Shareware and full

StopWatch - a timer with lap facility etc.

War Game

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.

King  -  card  game,  Raps - board game, FiveInALine-a Connect4 variant,
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.

Block It!

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

Bits & Bats

A  bit  of  a  mixed  bag  this disc.  WonderSound - harmonic instrument
design  tool,  Swish - makes the screen float!, AmigaTration - match 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
of programs.

Larn 12.06

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.

Assassins 6

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
highly addictive.

Assassins 2

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
Ahead - a logic tile game.  Great presentation throughout, lots of fun.

Assassins 1

Five  more  games  brought to you by Assassins.  Tanx - aim your missile
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!

Assassins 5

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.

Assassins 7

Another four top quality PD games for you to play.  Destination Moonbase

advance to the next level, Nightworks - a Fruit Machine simulator, Claus

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.

Lights Out

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.

Assassins 11

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

Trippin is a pipe line type game where you connect electronic switches.

Assassins 12

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.

Assassins 13

game.   Asteroids  is a version of the classic asteroids game.  Twintris

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.

Andy Whiteley
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
Chris Foote
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
Mike Wellman
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.

G. Sparks
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
Andy Platts
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 Potter
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.

David Hilditch
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.

Monstrattak V2
Raphael Borelli
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.

Superleague '93
Gary Pollock
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)

Quiz Time
Gary Pollock
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)

Spaced Out
Sudden Impact
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.
(Compiled Amos)

Paul Watson
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)

Games Disk
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
Sudden Impact
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.

Roach Motel!
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.

Assorted Games
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
your keyboard.

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
Greg Malcolm
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

Ian Williams
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
Mark Potter
Another good game from Mark.  This time we have a tank battle game where
you have to blast your enemy's position.

Wayne Morris
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.

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.

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
all ages!

Numtris Demo

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

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!

John Scott
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!

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

Tower II

Dithell In Space 
Demo Version
 Darren  Ithell has sent us his Shareware game to distribute as PD demo.
The  game  and graphics are very impressive and the full version is well
worth the registration fee which is less than a fiver.

Animal Land 1
MD Wilson
This is an educational memory game with animals as its theme.

In the Target
Michele Berionne
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.

Paul Young
This  game is a very colourful platform game where you choose your level
from a rotating menu.

Necessary Roughness

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
Michael Wilson
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.

Lee Bamber
This  is  a  demo  version  of  a  Licenseware  game  distributed  by F1

excellent.  This demo version gives you 10 minutes to have a look at the
kingdoms  and  their  stats  and also to do battle with one neighbouring

ships  before  they  are close enough to damage you.  It atarts of easy,
but gets faster and faster.

of  a  fighter  jet flying above the jungle.  You have to shoot down the
enemy planes as they come towards you.

Mr Shark Goes Racing

This racing game won a prize at the 1994 FES show in London. It is a
good program and is a shareware demo with more tracks etc available for
a fee.


This is a platform game with a fishy theme. Jump & collect the items
while looking out for the baddies! Recommended.

Paul Overy

This is the best Amos racing game around to date and shows what can be
done with Amos using the Turbo extension. Well worth looking at if you
enjoy this type of game.

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
discs.   This  is  a very nice program and if you want to make your life
easier  I  suggest  you buy it!  This is the latest version of this very
useful program.

the height of modern technology now is your chance.  I must admit though

disc is a very nice disc copy program by D-Mob called D-Copy.  There are
lots of different copy modes.

Sys Checker

This disc contains a full system checker to check your computers memory,
disc  drives, audio capabilities, graphics and clock etc.  This could be

instructions  are  included  which help alot.  Also included on the disc

very good.

For those of you who have been dying to turn your Amiga into a Commodore

also  included  so  you  can  use it as a work disk.  Nice collection of
small programs.

early  version  of  Daisy  Paint which is a paint & draw program for the

source code for the Smiley puzzle.

Assorted Programs
Volker Stepprath
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

Assorted Progs
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.

AddressPrint V3
Paul Lathwell
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
Star printers.

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
this type.

Gaters Gallery
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.

Guitar Tuner Utility
Lee Gillett
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!

Cool Copier
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
disk copier.

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.

Kieran Miller
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!

Ben Ashley
 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.

from various effects situated at the top of the screen in your drum kit.
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!
