Electron User games missing

I noticed that the website now has a nice "About" page which includes an appeal to suggest any games that are missing. So I'd like to point out that Electron User published many nice games that run on the Beeb, and that have slipped through the net so far because on stairwaytohell.com they're only in the Electron tape archive, mixed in with all the Electron commercial tapes.

I realize that many Electron User games are in fact already on bbcmicro.co.uk (especially the ones that were republished by Database or Alternative), so to prove my point here are a few examples of worthwhile games that are still missing:
  • Santa's Dilemma (December 1987)
  • Go-Pig (April 1988)
  • Shopping Spree (November 1989)

Hi joachim,
As we speak I am going through every Electron User magazine and collating a list of all missing games.
So far this is about 75% of them!

I have just completed my trawl of Micro User and sent all the missing ones to Michael Brown so he can get them on his new discs asap...

Oooh! I have a stack of electron user tapes from the later years, but I wouldn't want you to miss out on typing them in, so I think I'll just pass them across the bulk eraser and use the tapes for the speccy.

Thanks for your kindness and understanding Daniel,
I would really love to type them all in, and I was really looking forward to doing so, but unfortunately for both of us, I have the tapes too. :roll:

If you'd like me to copy impossamole onto those tapes too, just bung them in the post. I really think you'd be better off typing them in. =; no, no, don't thank me. It's all part of the service.
