.... Supersoft .... 16k
The HELPER is an aid to
Adventure players available from SuperSoft on cassette at £10. It
enables you to load a cassette based machine code adventure into memory
and then examine the listing for clues. It has a colourful introduction
and a pleasant screen design but basically does no more than the listing
on page 28 of issue 10 of PAGE 6.
I am sorry to be so negative
about TWO products from the same company but I really feel that
SuperSoft ought to think again. This would make an excellent magazine
listing but as a commercial program it is just not worth £10. With the
programs published by ANALOG and ANTIC becoming more and more
sophisticated and the price of Atari ROM cartridges at £9.95, any
programmer writing in BASIC needs to think long and hard about the
commercial value of his program.
