Little Computer People

(Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128, Amstrad CPC, MSXII) ( Activision )

Based upon Activision’s US hit product, this was a conversion of the game to a local European format, the multi-million-selling Sinclair Spectrum. The challenge to Software Studios was enormous; the US original was disk based – ours had to work from linear cassette; the US original had 64 colors – we had only 4 on our target.

This was typical of the ‘conversion’ challenge that Software Studios had, and under my direction we consistently turned out high quality, award-winning versions.

This won many awards including the "Sinclair User Classic". Sinclair User said: "An incredible programming achievement, you’ll come closer to actually believing than you can possibly imagine" (see panel on right for full review)
