GAME REVIEWS 1
----------------------------------------
THIS CHAPTER CONTAINS REVIEWS FOR ANY OF
SHELMIE'S GAMES.
----------------------------------------
NAME : DEVIL'S JACKPOT
AUTHOR: SHELMIE
TYPE : TABLE GAME

THE CLASSIC JACKPOT COMES BACK ON YOUR
+4:THE LUCKY INTERATION OF THREE RANDOM
OBJECTS WILL MULTIPLY YOUR BET.
TWO LEVELS OF SPINNING WHEELS ARE
AVAILABLE,'CAUSE YOU HAVE TO STOP WHEELS
BY PRESSING THE FIRE BUTTON. IF THE
STAKE IS 12 OR HIGHER,BONUS MULTIPLIERS
WILL BE ACTIVE. AFTER THREE UNSUCCESFUL
SPINS,YOU GET A CHANGE TO HOLD WHEELS
FOR THE NEXT TWIRL. IN CASE OF SUCCESS,
YOU MAY TRY TO DOUBLE PRIZE,OR GET IT.
GAME ENDS IF YOU REACH CASH ZERO,OR IF
YOUR CASH GOES TO 10000 OR HIGHER.
PROBABLY,THIS GAME CONTAINS EVERY
IMAGINABLE FEATURES FOR THIS KIND OF
PROGRAM. THE GRAPHICS ARE SIMPLE BUT BIG
AND REALLY CLEAR,THE GAME AREAS ARE WELL
DISPLACED TOO;SIMPLE JINGLES AND MANY FX
ARE USED. OBVIOUSLY,IT REMAINS LINKED TO
THE PARTICULAR GENRE OF GAME,THAT IS
VERY REPETITIVE,BUT I RECOGNIZED IT AS
THE MOST COMLETE I EVER SEEN ON +4.
THE STRANGEST FEATURE IS STOPPING WHEELS
BY PRESSING FIRE:IN THIS WAY YOUR SPEED
PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN ORDER TO GET
A REQUESTED OBJECT,GIVING A NOT SO REAL
'ARCADE' FEELING COMPARED TO A REAL
JACKPOT MACHINE.

NAME : STAR POKER
AUTHOR: SHELMIE
TYPE : TABLE GAME

ANOTHER CLASSIC REDISCOVERED BY SHELMIE.
STARTING WITH AN INITIAL CASH,MAKE YOUR
BET AND HOPE IN CARDS. FOLLOW THE POKER
RULES IN ORDER TO WIN 10000 CREDITS.
WHEN YOU HAND IS A WINNING ONE,TRY TO
DOUBLE ALL THE PRIZE OR A PART OF.
THE GAME SHOWS A VERY GOOD CARD'S DESIGN
AND IT'S FULL OF GOOD FX AND NICE
JINGLES THAT MAKE YOUR PLAYING NEVER
ANNOYING.
THIS POKER GAME FEATURES THE 'AUTO'
FUNCTION;SO YOUR +4 RECOGNIZES THE
HIGHER CARD COMBINATION AND SELECT THE
REMAINING CARDS:NOW YOU NEED ONLY A
CLICK FOR CHANGE THEM!

NAME : CASINO GOLF
AUTHOR: SHELMIE
TYPE : TABLE GAME

A FAMOUS SOLITAIRE GAME RUNS NOW ON +4:
TRY TO ARRANGE ALL CARDS BY PICKING ONE
BY ONE IF THEIR SEQUENCIAL VALUE IS
LOWER OR HIGHER BY ONE COMPARED TO THE
PREVIOUS.
THIS GAME HAS AN IMPRESSIVE NUMBER OF
AVAILABLE OPTIONS,THAT COVER EVERY
VARIATION OF THIS GAME:UNDO LEVEL'S
SETUP,ROWS,ON-KING,MULTI ACE,FACE UP
DEAL,STATISTICS...
IT SHOWS THE ABITUAL CLEAR GRAPHICS OF
SHELMIE'S GAMES REGARDING CARDS,BUT THIS
TIME THE SOUND IS VERY POOR.
BY THE WAY,THE GAME IS REALLY ADDICTIVE:
AN ENDED GAME CALLS ANOTHER "LIKE
CHERRIES",SAID IN AN ITALIAN WAY. DO NOT
PLAY IT IF YOU HAVE TO WORK NEXT DAY!

NAME : TORPEDO WARS
AUTHOR: SHELMIE
TYPE : TABLE GAME

YOUR SCHOOLTIME WAS FINISHED YEARS AGO
AND NOW YOU HAVE NOBODY WHO CAN TELL YOU
STRANGE PHRASES AS "B-7" OR "MISSED!".
THEN,YOUR +4 COMES TO HELP YOU WITH THIS
BATTLESHIPS SIMULATION.
AFTER PLACING YOUR SHIPS ON A SQUARE
GRID,TRY TO DISCOVER THE ENEMY SHIPS
LOCATIONS ON THE ENEMY'S GRID. WHO HITS
ALL THE OPPOSITE SHIPS WILL BE THE
WINNER.
ALTHOUGH THE GRAPHICS ARE VERY SIMPLE,
SHELMIE HAD SUCCESS THIS TIME TOO IN
CODING A CLASSIC GAME DOING IT VERY
FRIENDLY AND FULLY OPTIONED:IT'S VERY
EASY SETTING YOUR SHIPS,AND YOU CAN
SELECT THE MATRIX SIZE FROM 5*5 TO
16*16;STATISTICS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE,AND
YOU RECEIVE SOME DETAILED INFOS AFTER
THE BATTLE,WITH THE COMPLETE ENEMY GRID.
NICE FX AND JINGLES ARE PRESENT TOO.

NAME : MANIAC SLIDER
AUTHOR: SHELMIE
TYPE : TABLE GAME

DESCRAMBLE THE ORDERED 16*16 GRID ONCE
SCRAMBLED IN THIS WELL KNOWN GAME.
YOU CAN SET A TIME LIMIT OR A STEP
LIMIT,OR SET THE GAME BY AGE.
NICE GRAPHICS,THOUGH SIMPLE AS OTHER
SHELMIE'S GAMES;I MUST UNDERLINE THE
GREAT USE OF TEDSOUND FOR THIS GAME:HEAR
THE FANTASTIC BRAZILIAN TUNE ONCE YOU
WIN THE GAME!

NAME : HYPNOTIC CAVES
AUTHOR: SHELMIE
TYPE : ARCADE

CUSTOMIZE YOUR TETRIS! EVERY OPTION TO
APPLY TO IS HERE:PIT WIDTH,PIT LENGTH,
BLOCKS TYPES,SPEED,MUSIC/FX. THE GAME
STYLE MAY BE TRADITIONAL,WITH OBSTACLES,
WITH BLOCKS PETRIFY,WITH MULTIPLE
STACKS. OFTEN,THE HYPNOTIC CAVES:16
LEVELS OF DIFFERENTLY DIFFICULT CAVES TO
SOLVE.
THE COMMANDS ARE A BIT NEW FOR NOVICES,
BUT ANYBODY WILL FIND THEM VERY PRECISE
ONCE THEY HAD EXPERIENCED MORE THAN ONE
TIME. STRANGE THAT THIS TETRIS VERSION
MISSES OF THE 'NEXT' OPTION,WHICH SHOWS
THE NEXT PIECE. TEDSOUND IS ALSO WELL
USED, WITH SEVERAL RHYTMIC TUNES AND
GOOD FX.

THOUGHT THEY HAD TO BE REVIEWED...

NAME : ROOMTEN
AUTHOR: CRL
TYPE : SPORT

THIS SOFTWARE HOUSE PRODUCED 3 KNOWN
TITLES FOR C16/+4:SURELY YOU KNEW "SUN
STAR" FOR +4 ONLY,THEN THIS ONE,AT LAST
A REAL RARITY I NEVER SEEN,CALLED "DEATH
OR GLORY";APROPO,IF SOMEONE HAS IT...LET
SPREAD!
THIS GAME IS A 3D VARIANT OF THE CLASSIC
TWO PLAYERS BREAKOUT:DON'T LET THE BALL
GOING BEHIND YOUR BOUNCER PLATE. THE
SPLITSCREEN ALLOW ONE OR TWO PLAYERS TO
PLAY AND TRY TO DO THE HIGHEST SCORE.
THE BALL MOVES COHERENTLY AND THE
COMPUTER SKILL'S LEVELS ARE PERFECTLY
BALANCED;ALL THE GRAPHICS ARE SIMPLY BUT
WORK GOOD,3D EFFECT TOO. GREAT TO PLAY
WITH A FRIEND SCREAMING DIRTY WORDS?

NAME : BLOW
AUTHOR: PROKY/SNS
TYPE : TABLE GAME

FIRST OF ALL,I TELL YOU THAT I'M TALKING
ABOUT A 25 BLOCKS GAME WITHOUT GREAT
PRETENDING. TOUGHT,IT'S A NICE VERSION
OF "MINESWEEPER":AVOID BOMBS ON A GRID
KEEPING IN COUNT OF THEIR NEIGHBOURING
PLACES. THE WORST HERE IS THE UNFRIENDLY
CURSOR,THAT MOVES FOR HALF A SQUARE,BUT
THE REST IS GOOD. AFTER A WHILE,YOU HAVE
TO TURN OFF THE ABJECT'S INGAME MUSIC:
TOO REPETITIVE. ONCE THE GAME IS LOADED,
YOU CAN INPUT PASSWORDS FOR TIME,LIVES
AND LEVELSKIP.

NAME : PONK
AUTHOR: PROKY/SNS
TYPE : TABLE GAME

THE LAST PROKY'S PROGRAM ON +4. AN UGLY
INTROMUSIC AND TWO COOL LOGOS,ONE FLI,
INTRODUCE YOU TO THIS GAME IN WHICH YOU
HAVE TO PLACE SOME SYMBOLS IN CONTACT
WITH AS MANY OTHERS BY THEIR SAME SHAPE
OR COLOUR. OPTIMIZING YOUR CHOICES,YOU
WILL REACH THE HIGHER SCORE,AND YOU CAN
SAVE THE BEST ONES. INSTRUCTIONS ARE
ALSO AVAILABLES.
I FOUND THIS GAME A REALLY GOOD ONE,VERY
WELL CODED AND NICELY ENTERTAINING. YES,
THE ONLY BAD THING IS THAT IS PROKY'S
LAST....DAMN!

INTERVIEW
----------------------------------------
ANOTHER GLORIOUS +4 USER TALK ABOUT
HIMSELF ON THIS MAG:GABOR PROKOP,AKA
PROKY OF SEX'N'SPIRIT GROUP.

- PRESENT YOURSELF,EXPLAIN YOUR NICKNAME
AND TELL US EVERYTHING ABOUT YOU.

- OK. MY NAME IS PROKEE NOW,YOU KNOW ME
PERHAPS AS DIFFERENT NAMES:PROKY,OBSCURE
OF SLEEPWALKERS,PAULA OF PLUSSYCATS OR
JOSH TALLEY OF EXILE ON C64. I BOUGHT A
+4 IN 1989 WHEN I WAS ABOUT 14... BEFORE
THAT I'D GOT A ZX SPECTRUM,BUT WAS SOLD.
LATER I CHANGED IT ABOUT 8-9 TIMES!
- REMEMBER YOUR +4 CAREER:HOW'S STARTED,
YOUR MEMORABLE PRODUCTIONS,PEOPLE YOU
KNEW ETC...

- I HAVE A VERY OLD FRIEND,HIS NICK IS
COBRA AND HE WAS MY PERSONAL GRAPHICIAN
IN ALL THE GROUPS;I KNOW HIM SINCE 22
YEARS;HE HAS GOT A +4 SINCE 1985,AND
WHEN I COULD,I WENT TO PLAY WITH HIS
MACHINE,MAINLY WITH "ZYLON" AND
"CUTHBERT IN SPACE". SOME YEARS LATER I
STARTED MY COMPUTER LESSONS AT THE
SCHOOL,OF COURSE BY A +4. FIRST,I MADE
ONLY BASIC PROGRAMS,BUT NOT ANY BIG ONE.
THERE WAS A PLACE CALLED CSOKONAI,THAT
WAS THE MAIN SWAPPING PLACE IN BUDAPEST.
A C64ER GUY CALLED LACI WAS THERE ANY
TIME,AND HE HAD A +4 TOO. HE GAVES ME A
LITTLE SCROLLROUTINE,THIS WAS THE MAIN
THING,WHICH WAS HELPED ME TO LEARN
CODING. AFTER THIS,I MADE MY FIRST DEMO,
CALLED "GUY DEMO",NOT A BIG THING. AFTER
THIS,ME AND COBRA MADE OUR FIRST GROUP,
CALLED 'UNITED HUNGARIAN BYTEBUSTERS'.
THERE WERE NOT ANY QUALIFIED PROGS,JUST
MANY TRYING. COBRA'S GRANDFATHER WAS A
TCFS'NEIGHBOUR AT MISKOLC,THAT WAS THE
WAY WE MET HIM. THIS TIME WE MADE THE
'BITKILLERS' TOGETHER WITH GARFIELD,ADI,
CHEEBOOK AND COBRA. SOME MONTHS LATER,
TCFS JOINT US,AND THE NAME WAS CHANGED
TO 'UNIDENTIFIED STAINLESS STEEL RATS',
'USSR'. THERE WAS ONLY ONE KNOWN PROGRAM
AT THAT NAME:A DEMO CALLED "RUN TO THE
UNDERWORLD" MAINLY CODED BY ME. TCFS
MADE MANY OTHER GAMES,BUT UNDER HIS OWN
NAME. A BIT LATER,ADI AND CHEEBOOK HAS
LEFT THE SCENE,AND WE WENT TO NUKEMAN'S
PLACE IN GERMANY,WITH TCFS AND DOKY.
THERE WE MADE THE NEW GROUP CALLED
"PRISONERS",WITH DOKY AND OMEN. LATER
SJP/FYC JOINT US,WITH HIS CODES,AND
CSORY TOO,WITH CODES AND DISK SYSTEM'S
EXPERIMENTS. FOR SHORT TIME,SOME OTHERS
JOINT US:DECK,GARFIELD AND MAYBE OTHERS
TOO...BUT I'M TOO OLD TO REMEMBER.
THIS TIME WE MADE A SECRET CRACKER
GROUP,CALLED 'SLEEPWALKERS':ME AS
OBSCURE AND DR.JEKYLL,SJP AS TECHNOCRAT,
GARFIELD AS MR.HYDE. PARALLELY,WE MADE A
JUST-FOR-ONE-DEMO-GROUP,CALLED 'POUND':
DEMO WAS NEVER FINISHED...
LATER,WE WAS IN GERMANY AGAIN WITH TCFS,
DOKY,OMEN,OMEGA,OSCAR,CSORY,SJP,RATT AND
SOME OTHER GERMAN GUYS. WE HAD A LITTLE
TROUBLE,AND AFTER PRISONERS WAS DEAD.
NEW GROUP HAD A REALLY COOL NAME:'SEX
AND SPIRIT';MEMBERS WERE DOKY,OMEN,COBRA
AND ME. IN THAT PARTY WE MADE A SECRET
FEMALE GROUP CALLED 'PLUSSYCATS';OUR
ONLY GAME WAS "NIBBLY",WITH REPAIRED
LEVELS AND HEAD FOR THE WORM,RIGHT RATT?
A BIT LATER WE MADE A NEW AGAIN:"MONICA
ULLMAN AND HER FLYING FREECORPS",
'MUFF';AND AGAIN A NEW ONE:"20TH CENTURY
FAX"...AND,FINALLY,THE "TRIANTS" WITH
CSORY,BUT THEY LIVED FOR SHORT TIMES...
HMMM...PRODUCTS...I HOPE I REMEMBER
THEM:GUY DEMO,GUY DEMO V2.0,RUN TO THE
UNDERWORLD,PUNK PRODUCTION,IT'S
RIDICOLOUS,TWINPIGS NO.1-2-2.5-3,YELLOW
PAGES FROM NO.1 TO 5,BLUE PAGES NO.1,
NUKEPAPER NO.5,SOME GAME REPAIRS FOR
1551,TURN IT+,EOROID,BLOW,OVERLOAD,PONK,
SOME MUSIC RELOCATORS,SID DRIVER,SOME
USER TOOLS,MEGATOOLZ COLLECTION,
MAGICPAINT+++,NAKED DISK 2.6,NIBBLY,SOME
CRACKS,A NOTER THAT I HOPE THE EASIEST
ON +4...AND MANY OTHER LITTLES. I HAVE
STARTED MANY OTHER THINGS,BUT NEVER
FINISHED THEM...MAY I WILL?

- WHAT CAUSED THE SCENE'S DEATH?

- I THINK THE PC DID IT. BUT IT MAYBE
WILL MAKE IT REBORN BY THE EMULATORS,I
HOPE.

- WHICH ARE FOR YOU THE BEST GAME,DEMO,
GUY ON +4?

- "BATTERY 2" IS THE BEST,I THINK;
"BATTERY 3" WAS IT,BUT TCFS HAS DELETED
IT! BEST DEMO? HMMM...A BIT HARD
QUESTION...I LIKE MOST OF THEM;E.G.:
"EVS 2 YEARS","MUFFBUSTERS MEGADEMO",
"DIGITAL INTEGRATION",BUT SOME PARTS ARE
VERY LAME,"VECTOR VICTORY"...

- WHICH ARE YOUR ACTUAL PROJECTS
REGARDING THE +4?

- ??? THERE AREN'T ACTUAL PROJECTS BY
ME. I'M THINKING ABOUT OPTIMIZING MY
PRODUCTS FOR EMULATORS,BUT I'M NOT SURE
I WILL DO IT...

- FREE SPACE:TELL US ANYTHING YOU WANT

- THREE THINGS ONLY:
TCFS IS A LAMER *SMILE*
KEEP THE EMULATORS FREE AND THE +4 ALIVE
FOREVER!
MOST IMPORTANT FOR HUNGARIAN VETERANS:HI
ALL!!! I WANT TO MAKE A PARTY FOR OLD
BOYS ON +4! IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN IT,
PLEASE CONTACT ME BY EMAIL,READ IT ON
'NEWS' ON THIS ISSUE!

...AND I AM AT SAME WAY AS SJP,NOW KNOWN
AS EDHELLON,WAS AT THE FIRST "LONENEWS":
"CHANGING HANDLE IS LAME!!!"
