Retro Round-up

For this fi­nal is­sue of Mi­cro Mart, Dave Ed­wards does what he does best – pick­ing up and play­ing those games that you, quite prob­a­bly, would other­wise never hear of…

Micro Mart - - Remembering... -

Ah, it’s the very last Mi­cro Mart, so they’ve let me bring you a fi­nal Retro Round Up… hence I’ve scoured far and wide for the very best of what’s been re­leased this month. I’m not one for long good­byes so let’s get to the games first and then I’ll let you into where those of you who have fol­lowed this col­umn can con­tinue to get your fix of it. the stu­dents, who will grab you to dis­cuss po­lit­i­cal is­sues and cost you time. Also be­ware col­lid­ing with the po­lice, who will take all your posters down.

Other than posters, there are icons which, if col­lected, can tip the bal­ance in your favour. The jacket, for ex­am­ple, switches your op­po­nent’s posters to your own.

Elec­tion Bat­tle­ground is a bit of a fran­tic af­fair but it’s pass­able as Ba­sic games go and if you can find a sec­ond player, you may well get some en­joy­ment out of it.

Elec­tion Bat­tle­ground

The ‘ games’ sec­tion is largest, with in­for­ma­tion about each game spread across two pages. A large screen­shot of the game in ac­tion takes up most of the space, with a few de­tails on the au­thors and pub­lish­ing house in the top left and a pas­sage de­scrib­ing the game ( nine lines or so) top right. On the left of the opened book page you find ei­ther a re­print of the poster ad­ver­tis­ing the game or, if one did not ex­ist, a re­print of the game’s cover art.

The ‘mem­oirs’ sec­tion com­prises roughly 60 of the 234 pages and this (prob­a­bly) holds the more in­trigu­ing in­for­ma­tion

Evenly matched, but one col­li­sion with the po­lice­man changes all that
