36 Challenging Games for the BBC Micro [Part 1]




Published in the book 36 Challenging Games For The BBC Micro by Tim D. Rogers and Chris Callender, published by Interface Publications.

The book contains the following note about high scores:

before running a game for the first time so that you do not have the hi-score from the previous game interfering.

In some games, the 'highest score' is actually the lowest score, for example in games where you have to do things as quickly as possible. Before playing games of this sort, please enter



Tim D. Rogers: 18th Hole, 3D Invaders, Aspirin, Balloons, 'Copter, Guess

Chris Callender: Animate, Battlefield, Big Business, Breakout, The Clever Computer, Dodge, Downhill Skiing, Fruit Machine, Gold Mine, Hop It!

Please note that some of the games need alterations (which are noted in the book) to make them work on a BBC Micro Model A.
