How long have you been
waiting lot Wra th of
Magra? Well, kick those
cobwebs away because,
yes, it's finally arrived —
courtesy of
Mastertronic's new label,
Mastervision. The only
trouble is, it's had news

and not the E1.99 we
know and love.
manifests itself as a two-
cassette package
containing 120K of code
as well as 158-page
paperback crammed full
of spooky spells.
Plans are currently in
hand to make all three
parts of the adventure
available in one package,
but there's no price tag
as yet. But, further
thrills, there's another
part to the saga in the
pipeline, the working

Rack in the Summer, KS
held a competition in
which readers were
asked to prepare an
animated software
sequence which included
the Hippodrome Logo.
The standard of
programming was
extremely high from all
entrants, but two
displays in particular
stood out from the
crowd — and. as
Hippodrome owner
Peter Stringfellow says,
"They're as good as each
other — and both are
amazing!". So, in a
sudden burst of
generosity, Peter came
up with the obvious
solution — both entrants
win the first prize.
The two luckly lads,
Graham Thorpe of Kent
and Chi-Yeung Choy of
South Ruislip, are due a
full years' membership
to the Hippodrome, a
weekend wallow at the
Waldorf Hotel, a
Champagne dinner at
the Hippodrome (where
they'll see the first
showing of a video,
made up from a
combination of their
emries) and, best of all, a
free I 2-month
subscription to Your
Legacy of Light,
destined for a Spring
launch.
