Sinclair QL Super Arcadia Games Pack by Digital Precision Sinclair QL Super Arcadia Games Pack by Digital Precision

Super Arcadia is a collection of two machine code arcade games from Digital Precision Ltd. The games are:

BMX Burner
A space arcade adventure where you need to ride your supercharged BMX space bike by Derek Jones.

You zoom around a series of screens, avoiding the guardians and collecting objects in the right order in order to open the exit to the next level. There are missiles which you can pick up and drop in the path of a guardian to destroy them.

Grid Racer
A grid-runner/painter game which forms a race against time by Ian Robinson.

You need to move your man around the screen to get to a bomb before it explodes - however, you cannot go back over your own trail, so you have to consider your route carefully, as one bomb follows another. There are mines laced on the grid, so be careful of these, but there is also a useful shuffle command to move the grid and your trail to the left and right, which may help you get out of dead ends.

The pace of the game soon increases, with chasers and the dreaded boot.
