Cascade Cassette 50 [Electron]




This compilation contains 50 very poor-quality 'shovelware' games.

It appears that Cascade labelled the BBC Micro version of the cassette and the Acorn Electron version of the cassette the wrong way round. (Also, some games on the cassette were repeated.) The BBC version contained games mainly in MODE 6, which much better suits the Electron, while the Electron version had better-quality games which were better suited to the BBC Micro. The version here was originally labelled as the BBC Micro version, but has been marked on this site as the Electron version(!). 

  • Game 2 is supposed to be Galactic Attack, but instead it is Galactic Dogfight, which also appears as game 9.
  • Game 29 is supposed to be "Spaceship", but instead it is "Space Search", which also appears as game 42.
  • Game 47 is supposed to be "Jetmobile", but instead it is "Jet Flight", which also appears as game 30.
  • Game 40 is supposed to be "Do Your Sums", but instead it is "Die Thrower".

U.T.S. stands for "Ulrich Technical Services" and is the brainchild of its owner, Guy Ulrich Wilhelmy. An interview with Guy can be found here.
