and Cartoon type Characters make this
a game to look out for" "Deserves to
become a classic" - ST USER March 1990
A couple of quotes from a review when
Penguin sold for Twenty Pounds, shows
just what you are getting for a fiver !
Following the success of the Shareware
Super Card, we are going ahead with
two more Shareware titles - Penguin
and Master Doodle.
Penguin is a highly addictive and
original game, whilst Master Doodle
takes the Doodle part of the highly
acclaimed Master Time and expands it
into a program with a unique method of
control, ideally suited to children.
To All Super Card Registers
-- --- ----- ---- ---------
Thank you to everyone who sent their
fivers in for Super Card, the quality
of the people that did register made
up for those that didn't.
We greatly enjoyed reading all of your
letters, and only regret that any
reply had to be hastily scribbled on
the back of the documents that we sent
back to you. A lot of overseas users
and many Doctors and Vicars made up
the numbers, with some generous souls
insisting that we accepted more than
the five pounds that we asked for.
Well you can pat yourselves on the
back, knowing that you are responsible
for Two more B.Ware titles being made
"I can afford a lot of fivers but not
many fifties" said one user, which
sums up nicely what it's all about.
It doesn't matter to us if we sell a
little for a lot, or a lot for a
little, but it allows you to be able
to amass a lot of top quality titles
with a clear conscience, knowing that
you can be a genuine user for only
What is Shareware ?
---- -- --------- -
For those unaware of the concept of
Shareware here is what it is all
We put out a program of the quality
that you would normally pay twenty to
thirty pounds for, via magazines and
Public Domain libraries.
Then we ask everyone that likes the
program for a donation for which we
will send you some goodies, and
special offer forms that will allow
you to recoup your five pounds many
And then as you have made us happy by
sending your money, we do the same
You are free to copy the program as
many times as you wish, and pass on
copies to anyone, anywhere in the
Shareware relies on trust and honesty
- if no one sends in any
contributions, then we decide that
we're wasting our time and pack it in,
and you will have to find "lot's of
fifties" or delve into the seedy world
of piracy for your programs (and we
hope you get nicked and all your discs
eaten by a Virus!)
So please don't leave it to everyone
else - send a fiver in - Thanks.

2. Billy Bounce and Jump Jack
-- ----- ------ --- ---- ----
Two more top quality B.Ware programs
for just one pound fifty each ! - just
add on Three Pounds to make a total of
"Both games are superbly illustrated
with large sprites of friendly
characters, Jump Jack is a small devil
while Billy Bounce is a Ball. The
biggest difference between the two is
that Jump Jack takes place on a
limited screen that needs items to be
collected in order to leave a locked
door while Billy Bounce has a large
scrolling screen to bounce around in
order to find his objects. Both games
are amusing and frustrating and the
difference in screen format allows
enough individuality to make them both
worthwhile purchases." - New Atari
User Review Conclusion - Issue 44
Note that Billy Bounce and Jump Jack
are returned on One Double-Sided Auto-
Booting disc which will also work
manually from a Double-Sided second
If you only have a Single-Sided
internal drive and no external
Double_Sided drive, then please add on
an extra pound to cover the cost of
seperate discs - Thank you.

a: Send Five pounds to register and
get an info sheet, double_sided demo
disc and special offers.
b: Include a blank disc if you want
two single-sided demo discs instead.
c: Add three pounds (or four pounds
for Single-Sided versions) for Billy
Bounce and Jump Jack - Total eight
pounds (nine pounds for Single-Sided).
