A&B Computing Adventurescape adventure games

Hi, I am trying to attribute all the games from A&B computing on bbcmicro.co.uk. I am making a note of the issue the game was published in, the year, the author and whether it was compatible with a Model A/Model B etc. etc. I think I have updated all the games from the magazines onto the website...

Mick may correct me, but I think it's a case of thinking (typing) aloud :wink:

Ah! That's interesting Paul. I never spotted that, but it's fairly obvious once you know.
Still no idea where it came from though :-k

Volume 1: 1-2 Bomber 1-3 Maze-Trap 1-4 Chunky Invaders 1-5 Higher/Lower 1-5 Hangman 1-6 Aliens 1-8 Breakout...

Re: 2 Mystery Games...

Hi fuzzel.
I have no idea. It's a mystery.
They have at some point been attributed to Acorn User and Beebug, but when or why I don't know.
I can't find any mention of them in the mags.
I don't fancy looking through them again. My eyes are square :shock:

Re: 2 Mystery Games...

Thanks PJ
I only have PDFs of the mags.
OCR listings of the games from the first 9 issues of Beebug would be great. I have discs for all other games after that.

Volume 1:


1-2 Bomber

1-3 Maze-Trap

1-4 Chunky Invaders

1-5 Higher/Lower

1-5 Hangman

1-6 Aliens

1-8 Breakout

1-9 Five Dice

2 Mystery Games...

Hi, I have been trawling hundreds (and hundreds) of old magazines, trying to attribute each type-in game that we have to its respective magazine. I have a couple (for now...) that I can't find. We have this: http://bbcmicro.co.uk/game.php?id=1136 Attributed to Acorn User, but as far as I can see, it...

Cool! Don't worry about scanning. A decent photo from your phone will do. Would you mind uploading pics of the 1984 and 1985 ones please. You only need to show a pic if a new title is introduced. I bet that many from the same year will be almost identical. I am just wanting to see if they continued ...

Beebug Magazine supplements/catalogues

Hi, I am trying to pin down which software from Beebug was commercially released, and when it was released. In issue 4 of Beebug, from July of 1982, page 35 mentions the software library, consisting of GAMES 1, GAMES 2, GAMES 3, GAMES 4, APPLICATIONS 1 and UTILITIES 1. Issue 6 page 35 mentions they ...

Hi there!
I am the annoying person who forgot to bid on the games then badgered you too contact the buyer :roll:
How well do you know him? Is it worth contacting him again? Or is that pushing our luck?
