Your Sinclair (Jan, 1989)
This latest Code Masters released (accompanied as ever by pix of those ghastly Darling laddies) is an assault on the ever popular pinball market (Nah? Really? Ed), and it's not at all bad. The main problem on the Speccy - well, on my cranky old 48K-er at least - is the hopeless sound, and pinball does need its sound effects to work properly. But despite this, APS is not as awful as most Code Masters games, perhaps 'cos it's written by the Oliver Twins, who also gave us the ill-fated Sport Aid project, The Race Against Time. If they have not captured the feel of a table particularly accurately, that's partly because they haven't tried to. Instead this is a computer game based, to a greater or lesser extent, on pinball, and as that it works well. Just be careful not to tilt the computer (Eh? Ed).

Mit diesen kleineren Macken kann man als Spieler aber locker leben, denn neben dem spaßigen Spielablauf spendiert CODE MASTERS den Low Budget Fans noch einige nette, kleine Grafiken, gesampelte Sprachausgabe, eine fetzige Melodie von David Whittaker und spielhallenmäßige Sound-FX auf dem Amstrad. Der Spectrum kommt somit insgesamt in puncto Qualität ein klein wenig schlechter weg als sein 8-Bit-Bruder, aber alles in allem ist der ADVANCED PINBALL SIMULATOR auf beiden Rechnern eine tolle Simulation, die Ihr Geld wert ist. Wenn ich an ältere Simulationen dieser Art denke, die weitaus teurer und zum Teil schlechter waren, würde ich den APS glatt mit dem Prädikat „wertvoll“ auszeichnen. Einen Hitstern hat das Game aber allemal verdient!
