The ever-popular board game makes its way on to the CPC, featuring guest star TP. Up to six players can play, answering questions and attempting to collect wedges in all six categories. Instead of typing in the answer to each question, TP shows the answer, and you choose whether you got it right or not – no cheating, now! The graphics are a real treat and TP is cute and fun to watch and listen to; he talks in a really strange way! It’s as much fun as the board game, and some questions also contain diagrams and music – things that aren’t really possible in the board game. There are lots of extra questions with the game as well, and if you still can’t get enough questions, you might also want to try the Baby Boomer Edition, the Young Players Edition, and for French players, the Edition Révolution. (The answer to the question in the screenshot is “hearing”, by the way.)

Screenshot of Trivia: The Ultimate Quest

If your brain is filled with knowledge of TV, films, geography, history, literature, science and sport, then you might like this trivia quiz game. Then again, you might not. There is only one aim in this ‘ultimate quest’, and that is to accumulate as many points as possible. Each question you are given has three possible answers, and you must choose correctly before the time limit. If your choice is correct, you get a token, and if you collect 21 tokens, you score bonus points and start collecting tokens again. However, the clock becomes faster as you get more tokens, and the game is over if you answer three questions wrongly. Normally, I like quiz games, but this one looks appallingly ugly, which doesn’t make me want to play it any more than other quiz games. (The answer to the question in the screenshot is “solid carbon dioxide”, by the way.)

Troglo

(ACE, 1986)

Reviewed by John Beckett

You take control of cute troglodyte Troglo, and must slide the rocks in your cave to squash the invading critters. That’s right, it’s another Pengo clone, albeit a Spanish attempt this time. The levels are randomly generated, the pace is quite hectic (more so than a similiar CPC game, Penggy, which is a tad slow at times), and you gain extra points depending on how quickly you clear a level. However, the graphics – though cute – aren’t very interesting, and the whole thing gets very monotonous very quickly. There is a very catchy little ditty on the title screen, and it’s fun for a quick blast, but apart from that, it doesn’t have very much going for it, sadly.

Troll

(Kixx, 1988)

Humgruffin the troll has been transported to a mysterious world called Narc – a strange land of crystal caverns populated by goblins. His only means of escape is to collect crystals. Each cavern has a floor and a ceiling, and by stepping on a pyramid, you will be transported between them. There are also magic holes which will transport you to another cavern; you can also create these holes yourself, and stepping on a toadstool allows you to change their behaviour. The first few times I played this game, I didn’t know what I was doing. Eventually I began to understand it – and soon realised that it’s not much fun to play. The music is very jolly indeed, but you seem to have little or no control over which cavern to go to when you step on a hole, so you find yourself revisiting the same ones again and again. The game is also very confusing to play when you are upside down on the ceiling of a cavern.

Trollie Wallie

(Players, 1986)

Wallie has popped down to the supermarket to collect his groceries. There are forty items on the list, but he can only carry five at a time, and has to stop at the cash desk several times to pay for his items. The supermarket consists of platforms, ladders, escalators, and lots of nasty flying creatures – it’s certainly not your average shop! Sadly, the graphics are horrible and clash with each other, and it’s slow and difficult to play, and you’ll lose your five lives quickly. The music (a version of the classic synthesiser tune Popcorn) is well worth listening to, though.

A cheerful tune awaits you once this simulation has loaded. Navigating quickly to the main menu, you find lots of flashing options. Here you can do just about everything from customising your bike, tuning its performance, to choosing the track to race on. Your first attempts will always end with close studies of grass as you struggle to stay on the road, but with practice, skill and serious consideration of track conditions, etc., you will start to get the hang of things and catch up with your opponents. Once you master your bike, the adequate visuals and effects sit second fiddle to your newly developed biking skills.

The sultan’s daughter is held captive somewhere in the Kashba. You play Yusuf, the captain of the sultan’s personal guard. If you find her within three days, the reward is... the girl herself. In this complex adventure, your task begins gathering information, but this is only the beginning. You’ll have to find where to sleep, eat, buy weapons and ammunition, cope with treacherous informers, make your way through hostile quarters (which means, among other things, becoming involved in shootings) and even steal money from peaceful people you come across. Sounds great, doesn’t it? Personally, I find this game too difficult (the Kashba is huge indeed) and the gameplay a bit repetitive, but I also think it’s worth giving it a try, so you can judge for yourself.

Tubaruba

(Advance Software Promotions, 1986)

There are silly games, and then there are really silly games, of which this is one. From what I can make out, you walk and fly around a house, collecting as much money as you can. The monsters you come across are truly zany and some of them are extremely fast, too! It’s a fast and furious game with absolutely no time to take a breather; you’re constantly shooting monsters and trying to dodge the missiles they fire at you. Cute graphics and bouncy music add to this to make one of the most bizarre games I’ve ever played!

Tujad

(Ariolasoft, 1986)

Reviewed by Pug

This game sees you controlling a GEN 19 combat droid who has been assigned the task of repairing Tujad – the main computer. You explore the interior of the supercomputer in search of fifty pieces of circuit board that will fix the fault. Defence droids are on high alert though, patrolling the vast computer complex and attacking anything that moves. The GEN 19 comes equipped with several weapons (with limited ammo) that destroy specific types of droid. It’s here that the game demands some skill as certain areas cannot be passed unless you have ammunition. The sprites move and animate without any issues and are colourful. The graphics and sound work well, resulting in a playable challenge.

Tuma-7

(Delta Software, 1990)

Reviewed by CPC4eva

Tuma-7 is a run-and-gun platformer split into two parts. The first part sees you riding a motorbike at breakneck speeds in an alien-type world combatting various different creatures in a platform environment. In the second part, you lose the motorbike and you take on more human-like enemies face to face, again in a platform environment. The sprites look very similar to those found in other games but much, much bigger. Like most Spanish CPC games, this one has loads of colour with some outstanding graphics and really cool firepower; you can use both joystick buttons to fire a laser or huge rockets at your enemy. However, the gameplay is poor, it’s hard to control your characters, you get stuck in places and it seems very difficult to advance further at times.
