Super League Soccer aka a tale of Hariseldon’s idiocy
ST Format Review
For this review I’m running Steem with my usual 1MB STFM. The crack disk of choice today was Automation 451. This one is a fairly simple cracktro – scrolling colour bars behind static text with some nice chip music.It feels like a quick one knocked up for a fairly mediocre set of games. It’s always a bad sign when a cracktro drops you into the desktop to start the game…
So this is a football management game, and it looks like it’s running in GEM, using native alerts, wimp, etc. That’s quite unusual, and a real hint at a seriously shoddy bit of code. It’s copyright Budgie UK which I’m sure was a Public Domain distributor, which does beg the question why was it selling for £19.95 through Impressions.
I elect to have music and soon regret it. Shit chip tune. Seems to be trying to do the Batman theme without breaching copyright.
So I change a player’s name to Wankbreath.. so far this looks below the level of the little educational games I made in GFA basic when I was 11 and my mum was tutoring kids and wanted something to help with that. In hindsight she should not have been allowed near children.
This does not look like the game ST Format reviewed. I think Automation have shafted me. I am an idiot.
I will endeavour to find the correct game tomorrow. Tonight, I can’t be arsed.
