Tape 14, April 1982.
Arcadian 4, no. 7 (May 7, 1982): 67. (Full-Page Ad)

Star Fleet Command has put you at the controls of a pulse-pounding photon cannon. Your orders are to stop the invasion of aliens war machines. It takes a cool head and a steady hand. Only you stand in their way. Can Earth be saved or will the aliens destroy your cannon and invade Earth?

Normally, a picture this detailed in 3-dimension would require more memory than is available in the Arcade program section. We have utilized a special Arcade feature called mass screen memory. There is almost 4K of memory available in this way. The game operation is contained in the 1.8K program memory section. By using both in a unique way this game, with expanded graphics, is possible. It is equivalent to about 5K of memory.

This is probably the best use of the Arcade graphics to date and the largest most detailed play field yet developed for Basic.

This two-page L&M Software ad also has an ad for "River City Gambler" on the back as well as a high score contest for "Candy Man" (sorry, the contest ended on February 28, 1983!).

"The candy factory is enchanted. There are 2 jokers and 4 gremlins named, Tooter, Scooter, Harem, Farem, Darem and Scarem who play tricks on the Candy Man. This factory is in a mess since the two jokers have scattered life savers all the floor. The Candy Man must eat them up as quickly as possible while avoiding the jokers. Be careful the jokers will get their buddies, the gremlins, to help them keep the life savers. Are you up to it? This game will give you all of the enjoyment of its famous cousin of coin op fame. With Blue Screen Bonus Score & Bonus Lives."

"This dice game with 1 to 4 players plus The Astrocade for a maximum of five players. Or you can even let 'Astrocade play by itself or leave it out all together, if you wish. The object is to eliminate as many of the numbers at the top of the screen as you can, by eliminating combinations or single numbers equal to the combination of the two dice rolled. A new roll of the dice is made by the Computer each time you have used the previous dice combination. Numbers at the top of the screen can be used only once during a players turn. The computer disallows illegal moves. The low person WINS."
