SOFTWARE REVIEW: MAGGIE ISSUE 4 BY THE LOST BOYS
Or...er...no. It should actually be:
THE SOLUTION TO MAGGIE ISSUE 4
by Richard Karsmakers
The reason for me writing this article is very simple: I want to
prevent people from getting awfully frustrated.
Please let me explain.
In Issue #4 of the British disk magazine "Maggie" (made by The
Lost Boys, as some of you may know - full review of an earlier
issue in ST NEWS Volume 5 Issue 2), there is a hidden article.
This article is only accessible to those who successfully
complete its hidden article quest, i.e. a load of things you have
to do before you can lay eyes on them.
The master editor, Michael Schussler, has taken the liberty to
duplicate one of his English school lessons, which the hidden
article quester will have to fill in without making any faults. I
am left slightly abashed by what this has to do with computers,
but that's not important.
The quest would, of course, be very easy to those speaking
English - were it not for the fact that one of the words you have
to type in has to be typed in SPELLED WRONGLY. If you write it
down correctly, you will fail the quest.
Tut tut, Sammy Jo!
So that's why I will hereby give the solution; The Solution.
The first part: The second part:
1 D 1 make
2 B 2 of
3 A 3 deal
4 B 4 all
5 C 5 to
6 D 6 in
7 C 7 by
8 C 8 same
9 D 9 that
10 B 10 those
11 B 11 in
12 A 12 the
13 B 13 to
14 C 14 off (!)
15 A 15 as
16 B 16 of
17 D 17 of
In the second part, the 14th question, you have to type 'off'
whereas the real answer should be 'of'. Bummer!
Well, once you've gone through this, you can select one of two
hidden articles. Of course, these hidden articles are extremely
perverted like they should be.
Unfortunately, you have to go through the whole quest twice if
you want to read both articles.
Well. That's it. I hope to have saved some nerves with this
tiniest of contributions to this special Convention Issue.
P.S. I decided not to write a review because I am hardly likely
to be objective enough. This particular issue has included
some major reprogramming - and, hence, a lot of bugs have
appeared. I will write to Michael and tell them to him
personally rather than splattering them wide open all over
The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues. Please take into consideration that the author(s) was (were) a lot younger and less responsible back then. So bad jokes, bad English, youthful arrogance, insults, bravura, over-crediting and tastelessness should be taken with at least a grain of salt. Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated. Due to the fact that these pages are not actually contained in an Atari executable here, references to scroll texts, featured demo screens and hidden articles may also be irrelevant.
