Blogging a decade of the games of COMPUTE!'s Gazette
August 1985 - Space Dock
Huh, Editor's Notes apologizes for the smallness of the issue, but says that's reflective of the whole home computer marketplace. Which is kind of funny, because a lot of people think that the glory years of this magazine lie ahead. The editorial also makes the arguments how home computers aren't a fad in the way CB Radios were in the 1970s, but half-jokingly pleads for the next generation to please step forward. I wonder if the Amgia/Atari ST met that role or not...
Space Dock - Aaron Bobick
Another "maneuver past horizontal traffic and dock" game. Has some decent thrust physics I guess, but the layout of the ships you have to get past is very uninspired. Rating:2/5
