Sporting Triangles
Copyright/Publisher: CDS Software/Mr Micro Limited,
Release Year: 1989, Genre: Mixed Sports, Number Of Players: 1 to 3

Central TV's answer to A Question Of Sport has been computerised. Like on the telly, three players (any of them human!) compete in seven rounds of sports questions, each contestant specialising in one sport.

Throw the dice and away you go around the triangular board - your question depends on which colour you land. Answering is by you simply telling the computer whether you got it right or not. In addition to normal questions there are special Hit For Six, Jig-saw, and Quickfire rounds.

Phil
Seeing as Sporting Triangles contains over 2.500 questions I was surprised to see the same ones popping up time after time.

Worse still they take hours to load in for every game, while the 'yes or no' answering system allows scope for cheating. Still, Sporting Triangles does manage to emulate the TV show in one way - it's extremely boring!

Stu
I can't say I'm much of a sports fan and was completely bamboozled by virtually every question I had in a contest with Phil. And as even ZZAP!s resident sports junkie couldn't get far I can confidently say this is one for fans only.

Technically the game is little less disappointing with unimaginative graphic presentation.
