Entries in database: 15050 (+38)

Not 100% working: 73 (-)

That's it! The database has been frozen at the 15,050 entries' mark, and now we have entered the fine-tunning steps that need to be done before release. The database will now be converted to the new GameBase format (the team used a special format during James development of the GameBase program) but this will take some time as Michael Plate has to crosslink more than 1,800 precursor/sequel/related games. As always, watch this space for developments...

  Adventure of the Week - Supergran
19 May 02

"The White Wizard has been unhappy with the lowness of the quality of the adventures this month. There are three very poor and one fair to middling cassette adventure in this months review section. Looking back at my all-time favourite trio, the Zork series, was the high point of the month but having to review the others made me very annoyed. Where have all the decent cassette adventures gone dear readers? I hope to bring good news to you diskless adventurers next month, but until then you'll just have to make do."
