That's the problem! It's difficult to be sure your data is correct.

Re: Atom Software Archive

Hi,
Whilst searching for some BBC Micro games, I came across these in "Games Computing" magazine (issue 2, Feb. 1984)
ATOM solitaire square.jpg
ATOM Yahtzee 1.jpg
ATOM Yahtzee 2.jpg
The magazine is quite hard to find so maybe these are missing from the archive??
