Type-in from the December 1987 issue of 'Science & Life' magazine.
Program is Listed at end of video.

From the magazine (courtesy of CPCPOWER):
"Many times, in this section, we have used various symbols especially for making games. This month, we have brought together the majority of them in the program that we offer you. It allows you to view them directly in the three modes that the Amstrad has and to examine the way in which they are constructed.
Indeed, once the chosen figure has been selected, the program will directly supply the position, the number and the content of the symbols necessary for its representation and this, directly, in the form of instructions to be reused in any program whatsoever.

Finally, note that some graphics used initially on the Spectrum have been adapted here at the Amstrad."


"The cursor will be placed under the chosen figure by holding down the "SPACE" key as long as necessary. It will then suffice to keep the "D" key pressed for a short time so that the screen displays the selected drawing as well as the arrangement of the symbols that make it up. It will then be possible to change mode by answering yes to the question: "Do you want to change mode (Y/N)".

As soon as N is hit, the composition of each symbol will be displayed on the screen. If the spacebar is pressed again, all the drawings will be displayed again. It will thus be possible to select a second figure and so on."
