The Towering Inferno typein listing for BBC Micro

Post by uniforix » Wed Jan 17, 2018 1:27 pm


Its been "doing my head in", but I remember there being an adventure game type-in in one of the 80s computer mags called "The Towering Inferno", it was in a magazine I didn't really buy so probably bought a one off, initially I was thinking The Micro User, then Your Computer, and then I found there was Games Computing which really sparked some memories when I had a look, but there's only a few copies of that online.

Does anyone on here recall it? I do remember the first page was left side of mag and it had artwork of the Towering Inferno on it, the Your Computer/Games Computing style seems to ring true but it could have been another mag.

Grateful for any ideas? It may be the game is rubbish when I find it, but its just nagging me, always wanted to type it in but I had Electron so never tried (may have run on it, who knows).

Here's a sample of Games Computing, but may not have been this, I had forgotten about this mag though: ... cations_GB
