Trivial Pursuit: A New Beginning logo

Domark, £19.95 disk

Well (sob, sob) - the end of the world is nigh. So what are you going to do about it, huh? (Who me?). Yeah, you, the spotty one with the kipper tie who always gets all his homework right.

You're going to travel the galaxy collecting the six artifacts that will give you access to the only remaining planet able to support human life, that's what.
You (and a few mates) take it in turns to travel to planets and answer questions. Get one right and the next player gets a go.

Six artifacts in your pocket? Off you go to the planet Genus II and answer one final question. Get that right and you'll be scoffing lasagna when the big bang comes.
Smart guys have no heart...

Gordon Houghton If you just glanced at this in passing you'd have a hard job trying to decide whether it was an Amiga or a 64 game. Obviously, it's stupid to look for mega graphics and sound in the conversion of a board-game but I still think they could have jazzed up the presentation with more than a few spinning planets. The gameplay itself is as much fun as it ever was but if you're going cross-eyed wondering whether or not to add it to your collection, take a long look at Powerplay first. For a few quid more, you get a dead challenging trivia game which really exploits the potential of the Amiga.
Kati Hamza I really enjoyed playing the C64 A New Beginning but I'm disappointed that the Amiga version of one of my favorite games hardly makes any use of the Amiga's power. The graphics just don't amount to anything worthy of 16-bits and the sound, simply, is virtually non-existent. So what, you might say, it doesn't need them - well, no, but £19.95 still seems a bit steep when you can get the superior graphics and gameplay of Powerplay for a few quid more.
