Description You can Stamp that out straight away!
Comments Here we have one of those games that are more decent than crap.

The game opens with a rather elegant title screen about a rather more intriging intro about the protagonist (Norman, an intergalactic stamp collector, prey tell!).

The title screen as a certain mark of quality: no spelling mistakes (just a slight grammatical error in the game title), word-wrapping carefully checked, colourful and subtle animation and well .... good?

Well, goodish!

Using the classic QAOP formation, you move your bloke around the playing area avoiding the Spectrum-come-Badies (couldn't they not have been C=64? - ed.) collecting stamps and progressing through the levels. There are apparently 10 levels although I only got to level 3.

The game is slow and I am glad I played it on an Emulator as I had to turn the dial up a bit to stop me nodding off to sleep.  Fair play however, it is written in BASIC and Dave is learning Assembly Language in his spare time :-). Keyboard response is a bit sluggish also which makes the game more trickly than it ought to be. 

I do however like the fact that the game apologises profusely that you've died!

Hats off to him for a great effort, but I suspect it will be just a bit too refined to winning the compo.

Description Strong Man with a chirpy side
Comments Well Dave has really been working hard at getting that crap factor perfected since his previous entry a few weeks ago.  Yes, Geoff Capes: Budgie Breeder ticks many more of the qualities that we are looking for.  Right from the top, the title screen is plagued with annoying title sound (I hasten to call it music) and unlike his last entry, word-wrapping has finally out of the window.

On to the game - Geoff Capes (known more for his world strongest man title than for his passion for Budgerigars) needs your help to breed his birds.  What budgie breeding has to do with rudimentry mathematics is lost on me. Nonetheless, the way to clock up those birds is to enter the answer to 2 x 4 or 11 x 12 or get close (two budgies for a correct answer, one if your are close).

Nice touches can be found such as not-cleaning-up-the-screen-when-updating-text and noddy graphics and sound.  Even Geoffs melon looks like it wouldn't look out of place as a spaceship in another game - then again, the likeness is uncanny!   AFAIK, the game continues ad infinitum (I did have a little look into the code just to check to see if I was missing anything - and I wasn't!)
