However I will publish ALL programmers return material to date next month. I will soon be compiling a "Programmers Return" book which will contain all the comments recieved from Issue 1. If you have submitted programs to this library and would like a copy then please say so and I shall arrange this for you. NEW BATTLESHIPS(Issue8) 1K1= Although the gameplay was basic, the addictiveness was high. Me and my 14- year-old brother started fighting because of the game.

KEYBOARD PROGRAM(8) 1K1= After connecting my BBC Micro to some car speakers I found lying about, my deaf little sister could feel the different vibrations from them as she pressed the musical keys.

FIGHTER COMMAND(8) 2J3= Looks VERY good-initial comments are that it appears complicated to play, but just the sort of game I will enjoy. STOPPING DISTANCES(8) 2J3= Good idea-gives me an idea for extending it to include a general test related to learners. ADFS BACKUP(6) 4DO= Now this is useful! Used to backup all my stuff nearly!

Sorry members, but I can't fit any more onto the magazine. If you are a programmer and have had your program on any of the issues 4-8 then you may have all your reviews by post if required. I still have plenty to publish but if you would like advance copies please either phone or write.
