Snowball review in Micro User

Do you know if and what issue Alice reviewed Snowball from Level 9. I wonder what he thought of it as I was reading one issue where he points out that a lot of space adventures involve a broken spaceship (non of the controls work), a helpful computer etc....

Try the February 1984 issue. And as a special bonus Colossal Cave (sic) is also looked at too.

The July 1984 issue of Crash (for Speccy users) has a review of Snowball in Derek Brewster's adventure column (pages 73,74).
I think I'll download a big pile of Crash magazines because his columns contain a lot of adventure reviews and tips and some software houses released their games for a number of 8-bit machines.

And Micro Adventurer has a review of Snowball on pages 22 to 23 of the December 1983 issue (issue 2).
