Missing BBC Games HELP REQUIRED!

Post by leenew » Tue Jan 30, 2018 9:00 pm

It has been suggested we make this a sticky...
Well that's up to the admins :wink:

The previous thread "Record of known releases missing from the archive" sounded a bit long-winded, so this is a new thread.

Hi, is Mission Alpha 3D still missing?

Also I would be interested to know more about the following:

Kon Tiki (Golem)

Any information would be useful, Is it an adventure game? Any inlay scans etc. etc.

Hi,
Yes, Mission Alpha 3D by Doctor Soft is still missing.
I believe Kon-Tiki is an educational title, and may therefore be has been crossed off the list.
The educational archive may still want to find it though!

Thanks...just for completeness I have reproduced the text from your link here (maybe I should cut and paste it to the educational archive):
KON-TIKI by J.Amos
Simulation program based on Thor Heyerdahl's KON-TIKI expedition. Enjoy a journey on the KON-TIKI, recording on a map the raft's position and entering notes in the logbook on creatures found, unusual events etc. Inclusive of booklet, background information, maps and fully supportive illustrated data sheets.
Looks like one would require all that related bumpf to use.

Were you aware some of the Akom Crossword Puzzles are available on E.G.G.?

Cheers Dave,
I will grab them 8)

I was just looking through the list at "Software for all".
It lists "Alien Planet" as missing... Seeing as we have "Planet of the Aliens", I think I will cross this off the list.
Probably one of those occasions where they shortened the title to fit on a small advert...

Can anyone point me to an advert from "Software for All" which mentions Galaxians??

Thank you,

Lee.

Removed "Super Simon" from IJK
This is almost certainly Beeb-Beep (sometimes Beep-Beeb :roll: ) which was advertised as "A Super Simon game".....
