"We are used to big blockbuster games from Superior, and Hostages is no exception"

...Micro User




A brand-new release by Superior. Five levels of fun and frustration as you try to balance your way around fifty different weird and wonderful structures. The addictiveness of play that makes for a classic. Superb music and sound effects. Joystick option (BBC Micro/Master version). Enhanced BBC Master disc version.




Three-dimensional strategy game for all Repton and Pacman fans. Puzzle your way through 16 graphically brilliant mazes with keys, magic potions, mystery boulders and monsters.


"A classic for your collection, but you may end up smashing your Beeb in frustration"

...BBC Acorn User




The brilliant and highly acclaimed game from Empire Software. Frustration as you try to join the pipes and let the flooz flow. Joystick option (BBC Micro/Master version). One or two player options.


"A classic puzzle game that is so addictive, it should come with a Government Health Warning"
