H= hello there! please tell me your real name. F= my name is OSKAR STAL. H= and your age is? F= 15 years old. H= what's YOUR job in LIGHT? F= i'm coding and swapping. H= in how many groups have you been in, and what's their name? F= it's 4 ones. first it was a group called MICRO SERVICE. that was the time i coded in basic.. after that i joined a group called TITAN. well, i didn't stay there to long, so i joined TRIAD. after releasing some demos for them i left and joined LIGHT, and where i still am. H= how many members are there in LIGHT and what's their name? F= there's 6 of them named: WACO, GOBLIN, RASH, ICECUBE, SHADE and ME. H= who found the name LIGHT? F= i think i was goblin. H= when did you bought your 64? F= in the end of 1986. H= how did you got the interest to start coding? F= i read the manual and started to CODE in BASIC three days after i got my computer. one of the reasons is that i didn't know anyone who had this marvellous computer. in SUMMER'88 i started to code in machine language. H= when did you got famous? F= first it was not so many who know who i was, but with the time i got more and more wellknown. nearly all the swedes know who i am. H= what's YOUR future plans? F= i will continue computing until it get's boring. H= who is your best PALS on the scene? F= the lighters... H= who is THE BEST CODER? F= i don't really know, but i like KJER's mathematics calculations. H= THE BEST GRAPHIXER? F= well i don't know really, but i think it's the guys who besides drawing logos and fonts makes ALL KINDS of pictures like: girls, land- scape etc. H= and THE BEST MUSICAN? F= well, i think it's MANIACS OF NOISE. H= how many HOURS a DAY do you spend computing? F= i don't compute that much. some hours in the weekends and when i don't have some- thing to do. H= what do you think about the scene novadays? F= i think it's a petty that some GOOD guys leaves for the AMIGA. and i think it's goin forwand but VERY SLOW! H= what do you think about cracking? F= i think it's boring. i will not start to crack myself but if someone didn't do it you couldn't get games, 'cause who want's to buy a game for 150 SKR. H= that's ofcoz'. well, what do you think about the LAMIGA? F= i don't gonna buy one, 'cause i don't have the strength to learn how the machine works as i did with the C64! H= aren't LIGHT gonna do a MAG? F= when JEDI was a member of our group, we thought about it but when he LEFT due to some problems we haven't plan anything. H= in YOUR OWN oppinion, wich is the BEST DISC-MAGAZINE? F= i don't really know. i think it's SEX'N'CRIME, but i don't like their DEMOGROUP list. and i also think that there's too many mags right now. H= what about HOTSHOT then? F= i think the scrollers in the intro is abit strange but the REST IS OK. H= who is the BIGGEST asshole? F= i don't know because i don't know one. H= please describe A LAMER? F= it's a guy who think he can code. H= now some questions BESIDE THE COMPUTER. what are you doin' on your sparetime? F= looking at vi---SPA---ISSUE 2 my friends. H= do you have a GIRLFRIEND? F= NO... H= what is your FAVOURITE: FOOD = spagetti MOVIE = don't know. COUNTRY = some sunny place MAGAZINE = larsson GAME = last ninja MUSIC = nothin' special. SPORT = ishockey ANIMAL = nothin' special. H= what makes you HAPPY/ANGRY? F= the thing that makes me ANGRY is when the demolists is SO FUCKED UP i can't belive it myself! and the thing that makes me HAPPY is when people likes what you do, and when your high voted on the lists! H= do you got any ENEMIES? F= no, i try to avoid to gjt ones... H= and now as the final and the most used question. what should you bring to a desert island?

________________________________ GAME REVIEWS ________________________________ well, we all know that in the BEGINNING of this year there were only released SHIT-GAMES from the SOFTWARE COMPANIES! i also thought that the ruling C-64 was going to get a BITTER DEATH... but then i was WRONG, and i'm sure i was not the only one either... it really seems like the software companies have got their ASS IN SPEED, finally! so, this time i'm really PROUD of PRESENTING some REVIEWS on some very POPULAR GAMES... HERE WE GO... -------------------------------- 1. HAMMERFIST well, i've always meant that the 'LAST NINJA 2' is the best game ever made on the C-64, but yesterday i and my friend ( scorpie of hoaxers ) decided to PLAY this game. after i had played some minutes i became so FUCKING IMPRESSED, and the game is the BEST GAME i've EVER played!!!! NO DOUBT!!!! the graphic and playability is the BEST i've ever seen on a game, and the music is very GOOD aswell. the point in the game is to DESTROY the SECURITY system at the different STAGES, and at the last stage you have to destroy the big 'BRAIN' who has made all the WICKEDNESS in the game... the 'THE END'- screen is like i've always WAN- TED a 'the end'-screen TO BE. the programming is very good and the game contains a lot of WELL-MADE SPRITES. YOU ALL ought to PLAY this MARVELLOUS GAME!! GRAPHICS: 100p. SOUND: 86p. PLAYABILITY: 92p. CODE: 95p. IN ALL: 93P. THANK to BOD OF I+T for sending me this GAME. -------------------------------- 2. IMPOSSAMOLE well, this game i a NICE game too. the JOYSTICK control is a little bit BAD some places, but that DOES NOT really mat- ter anyway. it was a little problem to figure out what the point is in the game, but i think it is the same as in HAMMERFIST. the graphic is not so very IMPRESSING, but i like the MUSIC! the 'the end' screen was bad, and the last battle was an EASY FIGHT... the game reminds me about giana sisters and the cool game called rick dangerous, and it's PRETTY FUNNY! GRAPHICS: 58p. SOUND: 82p. PLAYABILITY: 56p. CODE: 45p. IN ALL: 60P. THANK to DAMIEN OF GENESIS P. for sending me this GAME. -------------------------------- 3. OPERATION THUNDERBOLT this game reminds me about OPE- RATION WOLF!! the graphic is not to boast about, but the CODE is NOT so very BAD. the playability is MISERABLE!! anyway the game is WORTH to PLAY... the point is to KILL as many MEN as possible ( i think! ) !! DON'T buy it... GRAPHICS: 35p. SOUND: 52p. PLAYABILITY: 31p. CODE: 58p. IN ALL: 44P. THANK to ANTITRACK OF COSMOS for sending me this GAME. -------------------------------- 4. HOTROD this game is a pretty GOOD one. the graphical INTRODUCTION is very COOL, and also with DIGI- TIZED music! the game has got a nice playability and graphic aswell. the point in this game is to WIN the race ( oh?! ), and you are able to BUY things which IMPROVE the car and make it better! when i played the game i had some problems in the beginning, but after some hard PRACTICE i finally became a GOOD DRIVER!! this game is worth its PRICE!! GRAPHICS: 77p. SOUND: 75p. PLAYABILITY: 60p. CODE: 56p. IN ALL: 67P. THANK to BOD OF I+T for sending me this GAME. -------------------------------- 5. DANDARE III dandare is a very COOL game! and i really think this game is the COOLEST of the three dandare games which have been RELEASED. i'm sure i'm not the only one eiter... the graphic is very good, so is the gameplay aswell!! the sound is also pretty good. i had not so very much time to play this game, but my first IMPRESSION was that this game is WORTH its PRICE!! try it!! GRAPHICS: 91p. SOUND: 78p. PLAYABILITY: 83p. CODE: 65p. IN ALL: 79P. THANK to DAMIEN OF GENESIS P. for sending me this GAME. -------------------------------- 6. SONIC BOOM eh... well... this game is PURE CRAP!!!! the graphic is bad, the sound is bad and the play- ability was bad! personally i prefer BLUEMAX instead of this game. GRAPHICS: 32p. SOUND: 39p. PLAYABILITY: 38p. CODE: 56p. IN ALL: 41P. THANK to CURSE OF ATG for send- ing me this GAME. -------------------------------- well, thats all folks! i hope you think i've been FAIR in the EVALUATING of those GAMES. personally i think i've been MORE than FAIR!! if you DON'T AGREE in the JUDGEMENT, then SEND me a LETTER!! signed DEXION OF 'HOTSHOT' red.
