Wanted: Cascade Cassette 50 (Electron)

Post by MikeDHalliday » Mon Oct 28, 2019 11:03 am

Hi all,

I am looking to buy the Electron specific version of Cascade Cassette 50. I already have the BBC A/B version, and want to complete the 'Acorn' Set of this dire games collection. - I have a 'thing' for naff games. :o

Who has it for cheap and in reasonable condition? - I saw a forum listing for it from way back in 2017, but nothing recent, that I can find! :(

Give me your best price!

Thanks

Mike.

Thanks for the welcome.

Yes I am completely nuts as you can see from the image.


The Electron version, along with the Atari 8-bit are the missing pieces to my complete insanity. - The Atari version is being delivered sometime this week! :o

Regards

Mike.

viewtopic.php?f=32&t=12358&p=196958&hil ... de#p157467

Don't feel mad, I had someone else also after the electron version for his collection, think I sold it for £30 :shock: :lol:
Guess what, I have another one in my collection that came with a bundle I needed for archive purposes, so if stuck can look it out :o

Hi,

I have copies of the files already, but haven't tried them yet. I am sure they are all as bad as the other Cassette 50 games. ha ha

Alas, £30 would be way too much for me to pay for it, regardless of how rare it is so I will say thanks, but no thanks on that!

Mike.

I have received the PM, but cannot reply for some reason.

Yes, I will have that off you.

Send me another PM with your payment address and I will paypal you over the money + fees and IM you my address seperately.

Thanks

Mike.

You can't send PMs until you have 25 posts - it was put in place to stop some rather spammy behaviour that was going on. I'll enable them for you.

Now. This has thrown the cat amongst the pigeons...

Why is this cassette got white and blue printing?

The one I have received today has yellow and blue printing.

Are there different revisions/releases of this collection???

OMG - do I have to buy another full set in a different colour now??? lmao
