Apart from the actual car itsed, there are also a


lot of other changes here. You get to race across the
whole of the US this lime, instead of lust California,
meeting all kinds of weather and road conditions
like snowy mountains, sun•baked deserts and just
plain rainy cityscapes. Not really the ideal
convertible driving conditions, I'm sure you'll
agree! The other main differences are the addition
of puddles. 'sleeping policemen', those temporary
road bamers for you to drive through. and not
forgetting, of course, the fashionable turbo! Usage
of this 'tool' is limited by the fact that the car engine
overheats it used excessively - keep a close eye on
that temperature gauge! Oh, and you can bash the
other cars on the road too, but make sure you don't
knock yourself oft!!
It I hadn't played Chase HO first and seen what
can be achieved with a Speccy arcade driving game
might not have been so disappointed with this, but
then again maybe il wouldn't have made that much
difference. It is fast and it is slick, and some of the
graphical bits, like nudging the Porsches (heh heh)
and driving through the barriers, are nicely
rendered, but on the whole I felt let down- Your
main sprite is nice and large, but your viewpoint is
more that of the car behind rather than from slightly

You've been building up your Spectrum software collection for years. You C
want a computer with better sound. better graphics, more power - but you
don't want to lose your software.
The Coupe is the computer for you. Four screen modes with a choice fr o m
128 colours, a six-channel stereo sound chip, 256K RAM (expandable to 512K)
- yet by actually slowing the Coupe down, we allow most o f your 48K
Spectrum software to run in the Coupe's level 1 mode.
c3

Growth
You never stand still with a computer. You're always learning, always growing,
always wanting to do more. With the Coupe, your computer can grow with
you.
Memory can be expanded from 256K to 512K. One or two 1 MB disk drives
tD • can be added. There are output ports for almost everything we can think of,
and an expansion connector for things that other people develop later. And all
of it simply slots in - no screws, no soldering, no hardware expertise.

Graphics
See the full range o f 128 colours on an ordinary TV set. Or better still, use a
video monitor for really high definition. Best o f all, use a modem TV with
SCART to get the quality of a monitor on an ordinary TV set.
The Coupe has four graphics modes. Even at the lowest level - Spectrum
emulation - you can change the colours i n the the software to take fu l l
advantage of the palette. In modes 3 and 4, you can display up to 16 colours
per line, a different colour for every pixel in a 256 x 192 pixel display; or have
an 80-column 512 x 192 display for word processing and spreadsheets.
And free with the Coupe comes FLASH!, a software package by ace Swedish
programmer, Bo Jangeborg, designed to give you total control over these •
powerful graphics. •••

There won't be a better buy fo r all you aspiring electronic musicians. The
ol C o u p e features a full implementation o f MIDI - MIDI In, Out and Through
with 16 channel capability, and MGT is promoting a full range of MIDI suppon
software. Better still, the Coupe features an 8 octave, 6 channel stereo sound
chip. For sensational sound effects, just plug in your headphones.

The keys are "soft". allowing you to re-program and re-position them i f you
wish. On the right, there are 10 function keys, which double as a numeric
keypad.

The basic model of the Coupe comes ready to work with software loaded from a
standard ca,s,sette recorder. But you can also add one or two 1 MB 3.5" Disk
Drives. These are ultra-slimline drives from Citizen in a special case which
allows you simply to slot them in when you're ready.

Who'sPaulGascoine,anyway? l ° M e l
Well, he's a footballer, isn't he? (A prettyi z e e
famous footballer, in fact.) They've been4 a f t
calling Gazza the most promising player in e r
English soccer for knocking on three years t h
now, though the Your Sinclair 'experts' a t
reckon he's still not quite realised his true d a
potential. Anyway, he's certainly famous t e
enough to sponsor his own rather corking ,
footie game, which is exactly what he's gone
s
and done! It's called Gazza's Super Soccer,
o
it's from Empire, and it's jam-packed with a
choice of leagues, a tactical foul option, 40-
odd frames of animation for each player,
and loads of other good stuff. There's also
an option which allows you to either ploy on
the same side as the great man, or against
him.1-lurrohl

Andwhatdopointsmake?!
Prizes!! And what prizes they are! For firsi
prize we've got a rather fabulous de luxe
table-top football set, the Star Cup game
from Polo. You know the sort of thing —
you've got a whole row of M a l poles with
players skewered on them, and you and your
opponent twiddle them like mad from either
side, trying to knock the boll into the goals.
It's the but And not only that, the winner will
get a football signed by Gazza himself tool
Then there's the second prize, a Tomy
Super Cup electronic football game (we've
got one in the office, and it's fob!) which
comes complete with another signed ball.
Three third prize winners get a Club Edition
Subbuteo set each, then ten runners up get a
copy of the Gazza's Super Soccer Speccy o'f
game. It's such a brilliant football giveaway!! , 0
