Fair Game; Multi-title disk to help charity.

Gamers are set to raise more than pounds 250,000 for charity thanks to a new disk out this week.

Power Source (pounds 9.99) is packed with playable demos of top titles such as Tomb Raider, Porsche Challenge, Robotron X, Riot, Exhumed and Total NBA 97.

And all the money raised from Power Source will go to the Prince's Trust, which helps disadvantaged young people in the UK. The disk, which can only be played on a PlayStation, also features a video about The Prince's Trust with commentary by Radio 1 DJ Mark Goodier.

A spokesman for PlayStation maker Sony says: "The project is about giving something back to the age group who buy PlayStation and about proving that video games can actually be of benefit."

Also on Power Source is a competition, the top prize being a chance to develop your own PlayStation game.

Magic, published by Microprose, is played by building up a deck of cards - a spell book - to create spells against your opponent. To stand a chance of winning a copy of the game on PC CD-ROM plus a pack of cards simply tell me the name of King Arthur's magician. Was it a) Tommy Cooper; b) Merlin; c) Paul Daniels?

REVIEW..REVIEW..REVIEW..

It's out of this world

MDK (pounds 29.99, PC CD-ROM)

THE most original PC game since Doom will top the charts for weeks.

Created by Dave Perry, of Earthworm Jim fame, it combines a variety of styles from 3D shoot-'em-up to platforms and puzzles.

Your sniper's weapon zooms into the action with pinpoint accuracy as you attempt to halt an alien invasion.

Very impressive. And at this price it should be on everyone's list.
