8 BIT SOFTWARE
From: K6X (Cluke) Subject: Acorn User Show pics(Iss.43) If these show a true picture of the bunch of piratical-looking thugs which were manning, sorry, personning, the 8BS stall, I'm not surprised that they didn't get many visitors! Glad to see that Chris had finally got the water tank for the sprinkler system fitted on the roof of the camper, or was it the cool-box for the beer? From: K6X (Cluke) Subject: 20 Four Game ( Issue 43 ) What a good implementation of this old dice game. A clear and simple layout with no unnecessary trappings make it both easy and enjoyable to play. Even though the dice "throws" are random, tactical play can lead to higher scores, so the old addictability ingredient is also there. The only change I made was to put a "Press Space" prompt under the "Game Over" message, so my kids knew what to do. Nice one, Mynheer Looyenga. From: K6X (Cluke) Subject: Match it Game ( Issue 43 ) "Oh no, not another pairs game" was my first reaction. Roy has made this one better than lots of others though, by offering "easiness" levels. The option of playing a game WITHOUT sound is a real bonus with my kids home for the school holidays! Thank you, Roy. Any chance of extending the game to include lower-case letters, and also maybe colours, for the younger ones? From: 20G (Roy Dickens) Subject: SHOW PICTURE MICK NEEDHAM (6EE) gave us a fine picture of a fine bunch of five. Daniel, Duncan, Derrick, Jonathan and Chris. All well known names and now we can put a face to them. (Whoowa! I never thought they looked like that!) Subject: 20FOUR DICE GAME Thanks to MR LOOYENGA for another dice game. It has gone onto my 'board games' disc with the other one. I'm getting hooked on these. Subject: 8-BIT LOGO This picture by K2O would make a good first page of the disc. I had a go at doing one but packed up. I couldn't get the acorn in the back ground.
