NASCOM 1 & 2

Nasprint 80

Nasprint 80 is a 2K program which greatly extends and simplifies the operation of Nas-Pen. New functions supplied by Nasprint 80 includes: Pagination Output a page number of each page Output a title on each page Centre title Text formatting with embedded control codes. e.g. Change line length; change line spacing; change margins; centre line between margins; new page; output control codes to printer. The program contains a parallel printer routine for a Centronics type interface, specifically designed for the Epsom MX-80, but the program can be used with any printer, parallel or serial, as the output is routed through an address in RAM.

The program also facilitates the operation of a printer with Zeap, Nas-Dis, De-bug, Nas-Sys & ROM Basic; the software/firmware being used is selected fro a menu and Nasprint 80 then changes the necessary addresses to produce a hard copy output.

The program is supplied in 2x2708’s for fitting 2716’s in the RAM A card. £14.95

New Fase (16K/MC/G)

New version of the space invaders type with each new fleet of invaders having a different shape & kind of motion.Missiles fired at you come straight down or diagonally left to right & vice versa. Destroy one ‘fase’ & move onto the next. The fuel level is shown graphically and you can refuel if you obliterate four fleets. Your score is shown at the end of a game and the top ten scorers are ranked. Once again the difficulty level has been set very high. £7.95

Starship Command (16K/B/G)

The ‘real-time’ Space Adventure for ‘thinking’ campaigners! You command the sole fighting ship of a small league of planets who are pledged to resist the oppression of the powerful Terran Federation.

The 3-dimensional planetary system is divided into 729 sectors (9x9x9), your viewscreen revealing neighbouring sectors 5 wide by 3 high by 3 deep. It can be rotated to look up & down as well as N,S,E & W.

You will encounter friendly, neutral & hostile planets and, of course, enemy interceptors. Your long term objective is to raise the morale of the system’s inhabitants so as to bring forth a spontaneous rebellion against the Federation. This can be achieved progressively by winning in combat and converting neutral planets. The opposite occurs if you flee from a fight, upset neutral planets or just skulk!

Machine-code sub-routines ensure the clashes with the enemy are exciting. There are six levels of skill and many other features. Full instructions are given in a separate program. £9.95
