The Cycles

(Accolade, 1990)

Compete in the motorcycle championship circuit around eight tracks with nine other riders. You have the option of riding a 125cc, 250cc or 500cc motorbike, although you'll have to qualify for each race first. This is supposed to be a realistic simulation of motorcycle racing, but it's practically impossible to get your bike to stay on the track! Despite this problem, it's also too easy, even though there are five difficulty levels, and there's no impression of speed either. The graphics are quite good, and the "Accolade presents..." speech sample is actually rather funny, but the engine noises are grating, and unless you're a serious motorbike fan, it's not much fun.

Cylu

(Firebird, 1985)

Cylu the Otsan has been chosen as a future leader, but must prove his worthiness by collecting 24 objects hidden in a maze on the planet Vole. These have to deposited at the computer where you started the game. Other objects in the maze include fuel canisters, CPUs to disable forcefields, and teleport keys (which bear the names of 80s pop stars and groups!). The graphics are extremely garish with some of the most hideous colour schemes ever seen, and the sound effects – well! The game itself is tricky, with awkward controls, a fuel supply that decreases too fast, and an ability to see only a very tiny part of the maze at a time.

Cyrus II Chess

(Amsoft, 1985)

Of the many chess games on the CPC, this definitely gets my award for the best-looking one – that blue colour scheme is so nice, and the pieces look really good as well. Mind you, it still makes for a tough opponent, although this is because I'm no good at chess and never have been. There are twelve difficulty levels, but it doesn't seem to make any difference to the computer's moves. Nonetheless, the game features a useful array of options to set up the board and save, load and print out games, and if you don't like the 3D view, you can always change to a 2D view (with horrible colours thrown in).
