Cascade Cassette 50 [BBC Micro]




This compilation contains 48 very poor-quality 'shovelware' games. Yes, 48 — the last two games listed on the inlay are not included. (See the Electron version for the other 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. 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 Electron version, but has been marked on this site as the BBC Micro version(!).

  • Attacker (game 8) is a slightly altered version of Bomber from Beebug magazine, by David Graham.
  • Force Field (game 21) is very similar to Space City from Beebug magazine, by J. Banks.

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.

This compilation was later released on 8BS PD disc TBI201.
