BBC games with joystick, download

Post by rph »

Hi, I've found a list of games that use joystick control but was wondering if anyone is able to upload a zip of any games if anyone has them. Means not having to hunt for each one individually, and meaning can get my kids playing retro games asap. Any games appreciated, so far only got Snapper.

Cheers

Thanks just wondering if someone had a compilation that was just joystick games though, cuts out having to run out cross reference against lists then download.

My boys are 3 and are only really able to use a joystick. And any help to save time appreciated as a father of twins!

Thanks Ralph

Have you seen www.bbcmicro.co.uk ? Pretty much every game is there, it's searchable and you can download each ssd easily.

Thanks have looked at the site and used before but can't search joystick suitable games. Just hoping for someone to upload some games, that would be great.

Mine do, they should auto enable when fire is pressed, but some on bbcmicro.co.UK will need the game started by pressing fire.
0 or 1 fire button
Space Invaders
Frogger
Centipede
Carnival

2 fire buttons
Scramble
Phoenix
Astro Blaster
