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.
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!
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
