I hope that everybody has made it safely through the World Cup - and congratulations to our French friends for the thrilling finals!

Around these parts it's been unusually hot for weeks on end, so perhaps some light reading might be preferable to straining your noodle over puzzles. Shaun McClure, bonafide Spectrum artist and author of two books on Spectrum gaming, is working on a new book on Speccy text adventures. And he's been a really nice bloke and allowed us to reproduce some of the interviews for said book. So here for your reading please are interviews with Charles Cecil, Scott Adams and Mel Croucher. The latter might not have a huge roster of adventure games, but he's had a fascinating career all the same. Thanks to Shaun for allowing us to use his interviews. Let's see if there might be more happening on that front.

Dome Trooper


Plot

In a far and distant future....

As the world's population grew our cities became dangerously overcrowded.

With nowhere left to build - a solution was found by the world's governments - massive city domes were to be built. These domes would be constructed on the ground where the old crime and disease ridden cities stood. Whole areas were cleared using advanced weapons creating vast deserts. Most of the populous were happy to be at last given a much higher quality of life, but some who fed off the despair created in the old world were not so happy...

Those who refused to comply with the new world order took supplies and equipment to start new lives away from the Domes. These people soon became jealous of the Dome dwellers and soon turned to crime whilst visiting the domes to trade. Life was much tougher on the outside and tensions grew between communities. This escalated into fighting and a tough new policing was needed to protect the Dome's from attack from the outsiders - the Dome Troopers. Heavily armed defence walls were erected.

You were chosen to be a Dome Trooper and posted to City Dome Alpha. It is your role to protect the people and the dome itself. Intelligence suggests that the 'Desert Rebels' have already infiltrated undercover agents into the Dome. They also have many friends who benefit through illegal trade in arms and contraband.

Your contacts tell of their plan to manufacture a drug so powerful and addictive - death will follow within days of taking your first 'fix'. It's name is HAD - High Addiction Drug. To make matters worse they plan to contaminate the dome's self-contained and highly precious food and water supply with this drug.

If the rebels are successful the whole city is at risk and all will be lost. The rebels will have secured their first stronghold. An official 'neutral zone' was declared as the first tensions arouse. The rebels chose to ignore this 'safe' area and after the defence walls were built the attacks became more and more aggressive. Now the neutral zone is a place of extreme danger. No one ever steps outside the defence wall if they value their lives.

You know your mission, Dome Trooper - City Dome Alpha depends on you.
