Hobbit Maker Adds Graphics For Spectrum

Melbourne House, creator of the top-selling Hobbit program, has brought out a new package that allows Spectrum owners to generate their own impressive colour graphics.

Called 48K Melbourne Draw, it is based on the routines that Melbourne House developed to create the graphic effects used in its programs. It costs £8.95.

One particular feature of the program is its ability to enlarge or reduce an image. You can therefore enlarge a portion of the screen to create detailed pictures and then reduce it again to normal size.

You can also create personalised lettering anywhere on the screen and in any direction - including backwards and upside down.

Additional commands allow you to create user-defined graphics, control and alter colours on the Spectrum and store graphics on cassette.

Melbourne House is on 01-405 6347.
