Game Covers - Buggy Boy (Commodore 64)

Use the joystick to select a course and press fire.  The race begins.  Drive your race-tuned Baja Bug along the race track, passing through gates and collecting flags for points.  Time gates give you an additional two seconds on the next leg so drive through them if you can.  Collecting the flags in the specified order gives you extra points.  Avoid hitting the fences, walls, trees etc. as they flip your buggy over and slow you down.  You are competing against the clock so don't waste time, push the pedal flat to the floor.  Try jumping obstacles by hitting the logs that lie across the track,  Show off your driving skills by running over molehills and tree stumps, tipping your car onto two wheels - see how long you can keep your buggy in this trick position.  Fasten your seat belt for the ride of your life.

Game Covers - Icicle Works (Commodore 16 and Plus 4)

ICICLE WORKS is a multi-screen game of snowballs, gift wrapped presents, polar bears and penguins.

Santa has returned from holiday to find that his presents have been scattered over the polar cap and are buried in the snow.  Your task is to help Santa dig his way through the snow, collecting as many gift wrapped presents as are required to complete the toy in each scene.

Life in the north, however, is fraught with many perils and poor Santa must be very careful not to get caught under an avalanche of his own creation.  His life is further endangered bu the many bad tempered polar bears and penguins which run up and down the passages Santa has dug.

Christmas is not as far away as you may think and Santa faces a horrible fate if he cannot complete the toy and escape to a new task before the time runs out.
