WHO'S A W.I.M.P.*, THEN?: Sharp-eyed BIG K readers will probably spot the odd item in this month's ish to do with the Apple Macintosh. The odd review here, the odd glowing comment there. we make no secret: we love the beast. And to those who say, "That's all very well for these millionaire hacks, but I've only just made the last payment on my Spectrum!"...we make no apologies. The Mac may be pricey by Spectrum standards, but in its design it has set the standards for all future successful computers. The proof of this was seen at this year's US Consumer Electronics Show, where Atari unveiled a whole range of cheap Macalikes, where the Mac philosophy has been blended with Atari's peerless games expertise. And at the reported prices, no-one can complain. Just to set the seal on where (we belive) Things Are Going, we proudly present the first instalment of SHATTER (p.76). See it to believe it. When affordable computers can do this, can fourth-generation SuperGames be far behind? We don't think so, and we bet you don't either. Enjoy. *Windows, Icons, Mouse Program. TONY TYLER.
