Re: Xanir Adventure & Pipe Mania demo & AYO

Ayo was on our (long) list of games to upload to bbcmicro.co.uk.
Not sure we will be including the demo, but that adventure is a new one on me.
I will upload it this morning.
What was the "Telesoftware" service? Do I class the game as Commercial? or Public Domain?

Re: MIA Games on eBay

So could Galactic Invasion have been recorded onto that Games 5 tape by the owner? So maybe was never a part of Games 5 from Beebugsoft?
Or is it definitely original in your opinion?
How would people have known there was another game on the other side?
