Astroball (SAM)/Revelation (YS80, 90)
   Just as much fun as the Speccy version, if not more so. Screamingly playable.
Batz 'n' Balls (SAM)/Revelation (YS76, 77)
   If wall-smashing's your aim, then this is your game.
Beetle Mania (SAM)/GA Bobker (YS79, 56)
Boing! (SAM)/Noesis (YS83, 75)
Brainache (SAM)/Supplement Software (YS79, 71)
Bulgulators (SAM), The/FRED (YS86, 70)
Daylight Robbery (SAM)/Supplement Software (YS80, 65)
Defenders Of The Earth (SAM)/Enigma Variations (YS58, 84)
   The first 'proper' SAM game and it's stunning. Perhaps lacking in long-term appeal though.
Drop Out (SAM)/Supplement Software (YS83, 25)
Dyadic (SAM)/Phoenix (YS87, 45)
Dyzonium (SAM)/FRED (YS85, 82)
E-Tracker (SAM)/FRED (YS91, 87)
   Powerful 'tracker which should go down a storm. A few awkward bits and that price mar it slightly.
Fish And Chips Demo (SAM) (PD)/Electron Affinity (YS87, 72)
Hexagonia (SAM)/Revelation (YS73, 84)
Impatience (SAM)/FRED (YS73, 90)
Kaleidoscope (SAM)/SAMCo (YS79, 60)
Lyra III Demo (SAM) (PD), The/ESI (YS91, 62)
Manic Miner (SAM)/Revelation (YS76, 84)
   Spread the word - the eccentric explorer with the taste for treasure is back!
Mega Demo 10 (SAM)/SAM Supplement (YS77, 69)
Parallax (SAM)/FRED (YS83, 58)
Pazook (SAM)/Supplement Software (YS80, 52)
Prince Of Persia (SAM)/Domark (YS69, 90)
   Top-notch platform slash-'em-up, with incredible animation. As good a reason as any to buy a Coupe.
SAM Adventure System/Axxent (YS82, 85)
SAM Coupe Arcade Development System/Glenco (YS84, 82)
SAM Juggler Demo (SAM)/Codigo (YS77, 80)
SAM Pack One (SAM)/Revelation (YS78, 81)
Sheriff Gunn (SAM)/Axxent (YS84, 60)
Splat! (SAM)/Revelation (YS76, 68)
   Sweetly simple and horribly playable. You may flip over it. Then again you may not.
Surprise Demo (SAM) (PD)/ESI (YS87, 70)
Triltex - The Later Levels (SAM)/FRED (YS77, 84)
   Triltex fans will need no holding back, but be warned - this game is hard.
Waterworks (SAM)/FRED (YS88, 80)
   I really enjoyed playing it, but I can see why people wouldn't like it. Non-puzzle fanatics should knock 25% off the score.
Wop Gamma (SAM)/Revelation (YS91, 88)
   You could boycott it to show we want more than puzzle games, but it's just too good to miss. (Sorry.)
