Just to recap on just how ttiese ptiarts 
work, every month the Gallup organisa- 
tion (you know, the folk who do the BSC 
music charts amongst other things) 
prepares tor us two Speccy games 
charts (one full price and one budget}, 
based on a conlinuoas survey of sales 
in shops up and down the country. 
These include big chain stores like WH 
Smith, Virgin and MenzJes, as well as at 
ieasi 50 independent retailers, meaning 
we can bring you the most accurate 
guide possible to what's selling and 
what's not> What more could you possi- 
biy ask for, eh?

Philip Kiftrfwn, eh? What a star. H«'s 
put together Ihis ataolut^ly corlcing map 
tor us which! I tell you absolutely 
ewryttiing you could possJbty wani to 
know about Hong Kong Phooey {as long 
8S It's something to do with the i^yout ot 
the room ft). And there are even ftome 
excliuslvfl tips to get you ducking and 
diving as well. Worthy of the £50 prize? I 
think so too. 
Take il swayp Ptill! 

• Don't try to elimEr^le a weapon-carrying 
goon like you would an unarmed Qtm 
because ttiat's a sure way lo lose energy. 
G€l past sa(©ly by standing omfm same 
platforrri when he"s nol loo ctase. After he 
(ires, fall otf ro sateiy His ammunition is 
now used up so you can punch him withcuf 
worry 

• WHen you want to gel oft an elevator just 
walk off it Don t |ump because if yau 6o rt1l 
ascflind, making it impossible lo reach 
again. This may not be a problem m some 
ptaoes, but gerieralhr il't basi nol lo jump, It 
it happens l^ mtgWie ttwjgti you can get it 
back to normal by getting as tar away from 
the elevator as passible and then returning. 

• On ir>e section of the warehouse wtiere 
the barrels fall down, be careful as these 
are real enerfiy drainers To avoid a hit< 
stand on th^5 nght ol Ihe vertical passage 
and bo a high jump sifai-ght up When one 
fails, dimb higher and always do that iump 
on the r^ght Continue (his until you w&ch 
itm oonveyof belts at the top. Remain on 
ttie highest one on th^ right and jump 
ai^oss to the lowest one on the left. Wtwi 
you land, immediately hRgti-jump nghi Stay 
there untif the barrel is faffing Re-fump fefl 
and climb the bells fa Ihe platform Get the 
er^rgy and continue onwards, 

• The last swFtch is on the botiom-lati area 
of The map. Wtwi you fall off the platlorm, 
make sure you move left m the air to land 
on the todge wh^ch leads to that switch. If 
you miss i1 arid fall in front ot the final door 
there's rKJ way oi getting any further. 

• Touch the huge gunman to complete the 
game When I first saw him t was ah^aid to 
get too dose because that gun looks like it 
eouki do some senous damage. But luckjly 
he doesn t use it. Phewi

a free game.) 

Right, befdfe we start (and fust to 
make sure you don't get coriEysed 
or anything} this is the way I'll be 
referrlfig to the ^raens . 

-Go to IT 

means Zone One, screen one. 

*Go lo 2.4- 

means Zone Two, screen four. 

G<A that? 
I think &p. 
Away we go! 

CREATING ZONE TWO 
1 . Tfanspoft mammals to eavc 
in IS. 

Go Eo 1 2 and plaee a iravel pod 
there. Go lo 1.5 (using rhe 
ptofodaetyf to en:KS5 the met] and 
plam anoitier imvel pea by me 
c^VQi Go bac^ to 1 2 end stun a 
mammaf wilh yoyr beamer Stand

IS disi>iayed in th% iOQk vmdow. 
itnen traiisport yoijimll end Ihe 
mammat fo the pod in 1 .5. Repeat 
the above several limes You can 
have up to 1ft majtimate in the 
I cave a! any one time. You may 
transport mammals even attar 
you have created Zone Two. 

i. Go to 1.3 and block gteysera, 
Congratulaliortt] You've now 
created Zone Twa 

CREATING ZONE THREE 

1. Make a fire by cave In 2^5 to 
keep apemen warm. 

Place a pod by the cave. {Rre 
lasts lof>ger in the green area.) 
Go !o 2 2. find wood and 
trartspod it to 2.5. Go ro 2.1 and 
stand in rhe middle of the screert 
m\ the soIkJ paich. Go to U 
(change zones ) Transport the 
flame lo 2 S to ignite the wood. II 
the tire goes out jusl reignite the 
wood. 

2. UnWoefc gcvMt^« t^ ^arm up 
^ planeL 

Yati does nol fike the warm pfanet 

so It will try to bkxrk geysers! You 

can feed him by transporting 

apples from 1.2 or fish from 3,4. 

This wjil keep him happy tor a 

while! 

You ve now created Zdne Three.

REPAIRING THE TIME 

MACHINE 

1. H&cover Itve crystal unit fof 
the time machine. 

Kill a few lerronsts in 5 5 shd 
w#t for a bomb. Transpon this 



3. Plant aeeda in 2.4 (needed 
tor later iof\es\) 
place the pod on the nvar bank 
(in the green area by the existing 
plants) TranspofT the appto^ from 
1 2- Repeat for both rrver banks. 

CREATING ZONE FOUR 

1 . Transport round wheat from 

3 2 to 3,5. 

If you have ptanied seeds in 2 4 

then you should have trees ^n 3*! 

You need to break the branches 

of trees to torm a bridge. Vou 

need the bndge to take the wheel 

acrc]^ Ihe river The bridge is 

also r>eeded in iater zone^ 

US0 pterodactyl m Zone One 
and as you cross the river change 
i&tm at the appropriate place so 
ttiai you wou^d drop on to the 
branches! Repeat lot both 
branches. You can new take the 
wheel across ttw nver to 3.5. 

HINT - A quicker way ot getting 
ttw wheel io 3 5 iS to can^ the 
whee) to 3 J ar^ enlei the hut. 
You will then respf>ear in Itie hut 
in 3 5. Now watk up to Ihe square 
wheel ar>d drop the round wheel

pod near the barrel and wart for 
Goliath to get near the r^ht-T\and 
edge ot the bhdge ard then 
iranspod ttte Hanie from 1 . 1 to the 
barret lo tgnrie it. This will destroy 
the Goliath. 

7. Reveal oil source. 
Take another barrel from 4.5 and 
take It to 4 J and drop it by the 
rnovimg rock (oil source}. Place a 
pod near the barrel ar>d ^ite it to 
dislodge ttie movir>g rock thus 
re¥ealing the oil source. 
You wrll have now created Zone 



bomb to 1 t by the rock with the 

crystal in rIT Ignrle the bomb to 
cf iSkidge the ciystal from the rpcfc- 
You will not be able to find che 
crystaP m the swamp as ri is too 
deep, but you will tmd it m 2.t il 
you search for il 

Place a pod in kom of ttie time 
machine and transport the crystafi 
toH 

' .u I re h power to the time 

There is a povipec switch on lop ot 
the txjiiding above ft^ ViO OIL 
sign in 5 1 Use pterodactyf to 
land on top of the buildir>8 and 
beam at Ihe swrtch to turn the

EIAPIRE 



Within seconds of Four Pack 
No 2 arriving on the sea no. 
thin set of lips arfived from 
Paut Cardiio. Quick off the 
mark or what, eh? And be 
certainty seems lo know his 
stuff. 

To start with go fnto the 
startMse and collect your 
mi&Shon Follow ihe pointer to 
the aliens and when you reach 
them shooi one and turn away 
The pointer should still point to 
the aliafis so lum back and 
biast another Repeat thts until 
you ve destroyed them all As 
soon as the last one <s dead 
ga to the system map arid put 
the marker on where your ship 
1$. Fly back to Ihe starbase^ 
change to PO" mode and 
tdk>w the paintef back to the 
place where you put the 
marker. The pod should be 
around that area. Take the pod 
back to the staft>ase and you 
shoukj reoetve a trading pass 
AHer completing the mission 
90 10 the ^stem map and 
otose in on your pc^kxi On 
tie pppoa^te s^ of Ai^tlu 2 
there are two stars Putttre 
marker on the one nearest the 
ptonet. Exrt from the map and 
go into *P0' mode. Follow tt>e 
pointer to the del, dodge the 
pjanel. and you ^lOuld flnd the 
waip. If, tor some reason, you 
can't find it. go bACk to the 
system map arxi place the 



marker on the othef del Wh«n 
on the planet, shoot as many 
missiles as possib^ t>ecauae 
you can clear a planei of 
missiles Qiving you a free 
ohoice d pods. Remember. 
wf>0n you come up to a pod oit 
a planet, never point your 
s^hts directly at it becaiiM if it 
Is a way out you will never 
dodge It Always ooied peofrie 
and minerals fir^ beirause ore 
is main^ covered ^n radiation. 
II you pick up radioaclEve ora 
carry it away from the warp so 
you are never tempted to pidi 
rt up. 

Gftneral Tips 

• Never leave a system unbi rt 
Is oompletfid. even for a 
mission. It IS easier to do tti«m 
one at a time, 

• Shoot all the alien stiips rf 
you <^n because they're real 
pe^&. 

• Always use the same planet 
to gal pods t>ecause you have 
ri^>re ctiance of clearing 1I of 
miesileg 

• The pla/iet you chooee 10 
get po«k tfOfn shouki t>e the 
one nearest the startM$e 
because than Ms easy lo get 
ihe potfi becit.

satisfying il there was simp|!y im>f e of it 

The second level is very diflerent. but the seme 
comn^ents apply. Basitcallyp you're now a much 
Larger sprite m an unarmed deep-sea dwer suMi 
sp^shrng around for a spanner oi someihing tn^ 
the ship s fuel lank 5. Inexplicably these ire 
with piranha tish mt WW2 styre mines - all youW 
got to do is sc^ it&m to the oihei end ol the 
tank, pick ^3 the spanner, turn round and lOom 
beck. And, um. ttifllt rl - the trick la that since 
you tf mi armed you have to keep deliberately 
touching the mines (wWch act as smart bombsj to 
gel nd ol the attackifig tish. Very coiouHut. 1\ii of 
neat touches jKike the little whirling propellors on 
the iuit. or the smoothly animated surface to the 
watery but as a game pretty hopete^s^ It^ basically 
a ahorti^ journey in a straight ime. with only one 
trick to learn beloie you can complete jf. 

Then Ihere a Ltvel Three, and (would you 
believe?! <t s even simpler. Its basically [im 
wiiiiing along in a siraighi (Ineahooimg things. 
1 1 nd ing a compuler (or something i and destroying 
El As a garne it s not reaNy thereat all. but luckily 
lis just Bi impressive visually a» ttie other 
sections - perhaps even more so. You control a 
giant SJar iVarj^ style walker (or a start - Superbly 
animated, and quite possibty one ol the biggest 
sprites ever, as tall as the playing ir^. Even more 
fmpressive are some of the things you won I even 
notice on tirtt playing (tike the tact that everything 



that happef^ la rejected on the mirrored nogr). 
Visually alunning then, but as I said. Blm«tt 
bughably ahocl and ^rmpje as a game. 

And there we h$yt it Technically an Incradtt* 
achievement, but less satistying for the 
gameplayer This is a real progrm^mer s gaim, tiM 
ot tricks and bourxl lo provoke i million how did 
ttiey do thai, oh I see. how clever cctflmenii. 
Think of tt as a tun project, a tiobby ga^me packed 
with eflects you realty should see. that |usl 
happens lo have been puWiahed. That way you 
won t be disappointed when you buy it

I know what you're 
thmking: hciw doe« 
Mike majiagp lo review 
hi.*5 own grnne without 
giving it at k-o^t twelve out 
often in every category? 
Wq!I it'e ^mething Tve beeri 
wafrying at>oui tiMi! t 
obviotialy couldn t do it 
myKlf, and even if I aaked 
someone else to do it, th^n it 
wcHildn t be easy for thenn. 
knowing Vd be reading the 
review bcfone it was printed. 
So hunger it, I thought, when 
a hair>' little Balmg offered 
to do Qie review for me - I've 
^ot to print something. I've 
not let him give it any mairka 
I in ciww the tfti^picioua 
^imongBt you ihatild miaiieirt 
him of bias} but other thnn 
thatf over to >ou, hairy little 

With hin fe^l fimnly 
planted on the kitchen table 
and a Bteamtng mug of colTee 
in his hand. Balrog wais 
atteinpting to remove a large 
wad of hluish-gr^y fluff from 
the depths of his belty- 
hulton with the aid of the 
hixMd- knife The mitlc- of the 
letter-box ihattered the 
early morning flilence. 
startling the Balrog; causing 
him to nwing the knife 
downwardH. Ltiirkilv for him 
it caught the safety-pin that 
waw holding hift flien 
together and glanced off^to 
one aide. 

■*Whoop#t* he cried, "that 
waf!! a close eai^pec Mrs 
Balrog would tiever have 
rorgiven me if I'd apilt blood 
on the carpet.'" 

Shuffling towards the 
opc^n dofir, he went to nee 
what gTt^at joya awaited him 
on the mat beneath the 
tetter- box. He noticed a large 
pile of a«S4>rted envelopes, 
and right in the middle was 
a fl mall jiffy bag. 

Deftly tearing open the 
package, the BaJfOg was 
nurpriaed to see that it was a 
copy of Oiw 0fOiir Wombats 
is Missings a game oFteti 
talked about in quiet 
whiapers and hushed t43nes. 
hut never before seen in real 
life. "Hey, this is the game 
that old Ekim has been 
blabbing about m the page^ 
ijf Ytmt Unfyir for the pasl 
decade or aol He must have 
rtnally finiahed wnting it."" 
With that, the Balrog 



shuffled 
upstairs to ti^ 
out the tape. 

As the tape- 
deck whirrM 
and Batrogs 
battered telly 
flashed and 
hiaiad (much 
ai the Balrog 
himself used 
to do in the old 
daysh he sat 
and read the 
leaflet that 
came with the 
gattio: 

Tou play 
the part of a 
young apprentice £oi>-k#eperp 
who is sent out one day bo 
ensure ' 41 the animals 
have I ■ Jt*ly locked up in 

their cageSt and that all the 
visitors have gone home. 
However, to the young 
apprentice s surprise one nf 
Ihe cage doom is lyar and 
the cage totally empty Your 
task m to discover what's 
missing and, if possible, 
return it to the eagie." 

"Sounds a simple enough 
tSJik In tne," grunted Balrog, 
switching off the tapenleck 
and adjusting his 
underpants into a positton 
more comrortable for a 
lengthy spell of adventure- 
playing. ''Now which animal 
is missing/ the Balroig 
wondered, auite ohli^-ious to 
the subtle clue in the title of 
the game. 

For the next hour or so 
silence reigned in the Balrog 
ahodet with or^ly the odd cry 
of *" Where is that blet*din' 
wombat?!" or "Well, which 
key docs unlock that lioddin' 
door then?" m he attempted 
to probe the inner workings 
of the game. He spent ages 
chasing a small c<ickroa^, 
and met a very talkative 
bird* referred to as a *manic 
mynah'. ("Hmm," thought 
the BaIro|f, "Old Rkim muf<t 
be even older than he lookn. 
Some of his jok^ certainly

Despite having cmne 
across a multitude of locked 
doors and red horrinjESi 
Balrog wa« thuroughty 
engrossed in the game. It 
wasn't until he heard the cry 
of Tou lozy c*ld f*odf What 
have you been doing all 
day?^ that he realjMd just 
what time il was, and be 
slowly trundled downstairs 
to be met by an irate Mrs 
Balrog. 

'"Danvn good job then^' - 
SAVTS routine^m that yauii . 
he thought. 1 can get back 
to playing it when the old 
battleaxe goes out to her WJ 
meeting tonight. After all. 
It's a great little game and 
well worth ploying through 
to the end. Its not too big 
but still hard enough and 
different enough to refresh 
those parts that thtr others 
dont always reach. Mmm, 
that reminds me of 
Riiniethmg hut 1 can't quite 
thmk what/" 

Balrogian Rating: "Mare 
eiuoyable than a grsen 
cheese sandwich.'

you're at it too... Oh. and don't forget the

ring out with |oyous chjm&s because it's 
^^t time ot year again here at YS. 

But whal blimmtn' time, we hear you 
ca^, Chnstmas Mega cofnpo time ol 
course I H may only come but once a 
year, but my goodness it's cenajnty 
worth the wait- We ve got enough 
compos to sink a drink, or a ship 
even* or anything in fact. 
(Except tor V^ of course - weVe 
tmsinkable.} 

The only problem is. there're far, 
tar too many lu&cious luwiies to 
fit on one page, so we've had to 
spread Ihem about a bit - your first job'll 
be to hunt them down Careful l^y scan 
evitry page of this mag (except those 
with B^ on, and perhaps a CDuple more] 
and you II find them. Can't miss em 
really, there re everywhere! it's incfedi- 
We. but true* 

So what have we got to offer then? 
Plenty, mate, ptenty. Ttie proverfjial 
something for everyone and lh«fi «om# 
more. A stonking load of ipmtts Ikt. OOh 
welL Ifke DBlh^eranc^, Ewlyn Hughm'

lewt Tt^en thece are infinite (well, almost 
infinite^ amounts of other fab and alto- 
gether groovy things like posiers and T- 
shtrti and mugs andp oh, loads. 

And all yotj have to do is answer the 
qtieslions - simple. You don t have to 
ariswer tiwri all (1^ yoij might as weUI). 
ttien just fill vn the coupon below and 
Bob's your uncle. Oh, and you ll probably 
have to get a stamp and toddle off to the 
ix^t box as wen (Ta>ing stuff I know but 
we have faith rn you).
