Syncytium was a compilation of games and utilities by Andrew Collier
, with some contributions by Ian Collier
. Many of the programs were previously unreleased, others had been featured in places such as Fred magazine (but of the ones that did, some were enhanced versions).
Highlights include Pipetris, a GamesMaster
game based on the “falling block” bonus round of Pipe Mania (which actually was missing from the official Sam version of Pipe Mania
); On The Tiles, a BASIC
puzzle game; and Ian’s Play command, a Sam implementation of the 128k Spectrum’s Play command (including about an hour of demonstration music from a variety of PD sources).
