MICROPROSE RELEASES DAVID LEADBETTER'S GREENS
 HUNT VALLEY, Md., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- MicroProse (NASDAQ: MPRS), a leading developer of interactive entertainment software, announced today the release of David Leadbetter's Greens, The Instructional 3-D Golf Simulation, for IBM PCs and compatibles. David Leadbetter is generally regarded as one of the best golf instructors in the world and is the coach of three-time British Open winner, Nick Faldo; 1992 PGA Champion, Nick Price, and 1991 British Open winner, Ian Baker-Finch.
 "David Leadbetter's Greens offers the greatest number of features and most accurate presentation of the complexities of golf of any game yet released," said MicroProse Chairman and CEO, Bill Stealey. "Computer golfers will find an intense and highly entertaining challenge in Greens."
 This is the first golf game designed to help players improve their golf fame while having fun. David Leadbetter, the pro that teaches the pros, will accompany players on their rounds and provide advice on club selection, stance, and swing. David Leadbetter's Greens is the only 3-D golf game that provides players free movement around the course, instant screen redraws, and animated "televisual" presentation with six camera positions, including a unique follow-the-ball option.
 Additional features include: six challenging courses, each in a different style; varying ground and atmospheric conditions; player profiles which change over time, including a full handicap system; a dozen game types including strokeplay, matchplay, best ball, skins, and a full tournament option for 1 to 4 human players; customizable computer opponents and replay facilities; and statistical and graphic hole-by- hole analysis of player's performance.
 MicroProse will also offer a competitive upgrade featuring four (out of six) golf courses and the option to receive the additional two courses or a $10 rebate. This is the first time that a competitive upgrade has been made available in entertainment software. The upgrade product is available at a reduced price point -- $10 off suggested retail price (SRP) -- for a limited time only.
 David Leadbetter's Greens is available for the IBM PC and compatibles. SRP is $59.95. The game requires 2 MB of RAM and a hard disk. It supports MCGA/VGA graphics and Roland, AdLib and Sound Blaster sounds. A mouse is recommended.
