Game Covers - Back To Reality (Commodore 64)

Not so much an arcade adventure, more a way of destroying your social life.  Set inside an alien artifact this test of your powers of logic and deduction requires you to become immortal, switch universes and solve the most fiendish problems ever to keep you up nights!

It is challenging and addictive.  Start it at your peril.  Stopping might not be so easy

Game Covers - Zub (Commodore 64)

Take agent Zub through the perils of ten nasty worlds to retrieve the eyeball of Zub for his King, Zub.  If Zub fails Zub one will lose the war to Zub ten and his Commander, Zub will probably Zub him.

Confused?  You won't be once you've played this amazing all action game.  It's got more alien types than you'll probably ever see.  100 frames for animation, parallax like you wouldn't believe, and most of all - playability.

Game Covers - Kikstart 2 (Commodore 64)

Now this was a blinder of a game, and a real bargain for £2.99.  I would've been happy to pay full price for this.  24 courses of motorcross/trials fun, based on the BBC television series Kick Start, but what made this stand out from the previous Kikstart game (besides the better graphics) was the inclusion of a powerful, and very easy to use course editor.  I spent countless hours designing my own fiendish tracks and saving them to tape.

An amazing game, made by the same team that would like go on to make the Lotus series on the Commodore Amiga.

Ride your bike over the 24 all action courses in this new improved version of Kikstart.  Devise your own mindbendingly tortuous test with the course designer or make things really easy - the choice is yours!

Game Covers - Space Hunter (Commodore 64)

A fun romp in space, featuring two styles of game play (3D space flight simulator, and 2D maze/map exploration).  Well worth the £1.99 which I paid for this back in the day.

"The world is starving and the only food available is in space.  You must search through 15 star systems to feed the world.  This complex 3-D simulation takes you from rookie pilot to the hero of the world...  If you're good enough!"
