Sinclair User (May, 1988)
MS has really done itself proud here. Freebies include beer mats and newspapers, not to mention a very grubby staff memo. All look very authentic and very helpful in places. Jinxter gets full marks for presentation, style, wit and fun. One that will keep you up late at night and probably make you miss Neighbours as well.
Crash! (Apr, 1988)
From Kerovnia and The Guild of Thieves to Aquitania and the magician of Turani - Magnetic Scrolls' latest adventure deals with a land in which luck is running out. The good fortune of Aquitania depends on the safekeeping of the bracelet created by its wise magician. The bracelet and its five lucky charms have become separated through the machinations of the notorious Green Witches in a bid for control of the kingdom. Meanwhile, in households everywhere, the odds are stacked in favour of misfortune: the land is jinxed.
ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment) (Oct, 1988)
[Re-test] Odd adventure decorated with beautiful graphics in which you have to restore luck to Aquitania. Typical of breed of games where programming techniques overtook game design and writing style, but still worth tackling for adventurers and boasting some excellent pics.

Three megagames in a row for Magnetic Scrolls, but hardly surprising as this is definitely top-of-the-range Spectrum adventure stuff with only the likes of Gnome Ranger and Knight Orc as rivals. Plus-3 owners will be able to gloat at now having Guild Of Thieves and Jinxter, both unavailable for the kid brother machines. Inside the bright blue box, which reminds us that 'Every Silver Lining Has A Cloud', what do we find? We find a 3" disk with a game on it. We find a beer mat advertising Moose Bolter beer, and a compo that gives four people the chance to win every Magnetic Scrolls game for life. We find some simple instructions, a sealed envelope and a copy of The Independent Guardian, essential reading for Guardians everywhere, with news and views of leading Guardians like Len Pouch, Len Pisht, Len Moron and Len Wossname.
