A modification to ''Amstrad Drumkit'' was published in the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 9, Jun 1986|June 1986]] issue (#9). The modified version would later appear appeared on the covertape included with the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 16, Jan 1987|Christmas 1986]] issue (#16), and again on the covertape included with the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 74, Nov 1991|November 1991]] issue (#74).
John Keneally also programmed the game ''[[Dervish]]'', which was published by [[The Power House]] in 1988.
Two versions of ''CAT#8'' were supposed to be published in this issue - one version for CPC464 machines, and a shorter version for CPC664 and CPC6128 machines, which used the <tt>COPYCHR$</tt> command. However, ''Amstrad Action'' forgot to print the 464 version. It was published in the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 11, Aug 1986|August 1986]] issue (#11).
''Blitter'' would later appear appeared on the covertape included with the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 16, Jan 1987|Christmas 1986]] issue (#16).

== '''AA 014- November 1986''' == * Poster Maker (Peter Doel)* Torus (Roger Wilson)* Simon (T. Magee) ''Amstrad Action'' neglected to mention that ''Simon'' only works on CPC664 and CPC6128 machines, due to its use of commands that are only available in BASIC 1.1. This was noted in the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 15, Dec 1986|December 1986]] issue (#15), and they offered "apologies to any frustrated 464 users." A reply to a letter from a reader that was published in the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 16, Jan 1987|Christmas 1986]] issue (#16) also stated that the type-in only works on CPC664 and CPC6128 machines. == '''AA 015 - December 1986''' == From this issue, the Type-Ins section was expanded to five pages, allowing many more type-ins to be published in each issue. A new typesetting process was also used in order to make them easier for users to enter correctly. * Sound Digitizer (Richard Monteiro)* Motor Control (Alex Aird)* Kaleidoscope (Alex Gough)* Patterns (P. P. Tunstall)* Hypnotic (Simon Tully)* Spiralu and Spirald (B. A. Knight) - ''Spirald'' is very similar to ''Spiralu'', but some lines have been altered* Stained Glass (Alastair Scott) - requires BASIC 1.1, as it uses the <tt>FILL</tt> command (''Amstrad Action'' remembered to mention this fact this time!)* Double Height (Leighton Derrick and Richard Montiero) - Leighton Derrick's version is written entirely in BASIC, and Richard Monteiro's version uses machine code
== '''AA 015016 - Christmas 1987''' ==
== '''AA 016''' ==* Fast BASIC Double-Height (Chris Boothman)* Calendar (R. Bellerby)* Snowstorm (Shaun Garrad)* Artist (Simon Watson)* Wandering Through Space (Julian Smalley)* Pyramid (Adrian Sill)* Shady Dump (Mark Gannon)* Screen Squash (Simon Solway)
== '''AA 017 - February 1987''' ==
