Title: Fist Lore *** (£30)
Some pleasantly large sprites, nice graphics and parallax (but incorrect!) scrolling fail to turn this into a winner. Poor control and a stunning lack of moves cripples what could perhaps have been the first decent Acorn beat'em'up.

Type: Beat'em'up
Needs: 2MB   OS 2: Yes   OS 3: Yes   RPC: Yes   SA: ?

Title: Flashback ***** (£28)
A brilliant conversion of this outstanding game, surpassing even the excellence of the console versions. Packed full of realistic animation, superb backgrounds and storyline animations, and with excellent game design and atmospheric event-triggered music, this is one of the best games on the Acorn platform. If you like puzzle solving then you must buy this game!

Title: Floopy * (£3.50)
Very cheap and primitive game with terrible graphics, very poor coding, and virtually no gameplay. Looks like a very early 8-bit game.

Title: Flying High - Euroblaster and Joust *** (£14.50)
Two game pack containing the shoot'em'up Euroblaster, a simple non-scrolling shoot'em'up, and a 32-bit version of Joust, a "classic" game where you must dismount riders from ostriches. Will work on non-StrongARM Risc PC but is too slow and jerky to be playable.
