Dungeon of Doom from Usborne

Hey,
Has anyone got "Dungeon Of Doom" from the Usborne book "Write your own Fantasy games"?
It is quite a big listing and I don't fancy typing it in :D

Hi Paul,
I am aware of this!
I *do* have the Fast Access discs from whence these games came. It's just a case of remembering to make a seperate SSD for each of them :oops:

I think this is a case that it may have been retrospectively referred to as 87 to distinguish it from the new "'88" version.

Re: Chart Challenge - Outlook Enterprises

Slight confusion!!

The original *IS* Chart Challenge '87 - released at the end of 1986.
The follow up is "Chart Challenge '88", which was released (presumably) in 1987. I will try and find magazine reviews for it.
