P557 ORACLE 557 Sun 5 May C4 2020:20 4/6 TECHNICIAN TED (Hewson C.) for Sp.48k Reviewed by MATT SHAW This game is nearly a brother to "Jet Set hlly" — they are so alike. While it loads Ted walks across the picture, which is more fun than a still image. Whe the game starts, Ted (who is not a bear) lpst knock boxes in the Chip Factory and then get out. The graphics are lively, the tune is ace and can be switched on and off as 8ou please. more > A host of SCI-FACTS on page 558P557 ORACLE 557 Sun 5 May C4 2021:07 6/6 Microscope TopP0Z - to May 6th 1 1 SOFT AID Soft Aid 2 3 SPYHUNTER US Gold 3 2 SOFT AID Soft Aid 4 4 WORLD SERIES BASEBALL Imagine 5 5 IMPOSSIBLE MISSION CBSWFPYX 6 14 GREMLINS Adventure Int. 7 9 STARION Melbourne House 8 6 WORLD SERIES BASEBALL Imagine 9 8 GHOSTBUSTERS Activision 10 12 GREMLINS Adventure Int. 11 INTERNATIONAL BASKETBALL Comm. 12 PITSTOP 2 CBS/Epyx 13 7 BRIAN JACKS SUPERSTAR Martech 14 10 BRUCE LEE US Gold 15 13 GRAND NATIONAL Elite Spectrum 48 Comm'64 BBC Amstrad reviews >P557 ORACLE 557 Sun 5 May C4 2020:10 5/6 TECHNICIAN TED review (cont'd) The game has two drawbacks.
