General

Latest rumour about the Loki developers - they've formed a company called Flair and need some money, so they're going to release a sound/music interface for the Spectrum. Also, the Loki cannot be Spectrum compatible because now Amstrad owns the rights.
    Sinclair's Pandora Portable also cannot be Spectrum compatible - the project is scrapped.
    Domark gets into trouble naming it's lastest game Splitting Images - they rename the game to Split Personalities to please the lawyers.
    Hardware round-up.
    The abysmal World Cup Carnival by US Gold goes straight to number one, keeping the brilliant Batman off the top slot.
    A Spectrum Teletext receiver is advertised by Volex Electronics for £89.99.
    US Gold beats the rest of the pack by getting the biggest coin-op licence of the year: Gauntlet.
    Software Projects announces that it's got the licence for the first interactive lazer-disk-based video game Dragon's Lair.
    Max Phillips complains about the lack of games for the 128.
