Cascade Cassette 50 [BBC Micro]




This compilation contains fifty very poor-quality "shovelware" games.

  • 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.

More than you ever wanted to know about Cascade Cassette 50.

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

It appears that Cascade labelled the BBC Micro cassette and the Acorn Electron cassette the wrong way round. The cassette that was originally labelled "BBC" contained games mainly in MODE 6, which suits the Electron much better, while the cassette labelled "Electron" had higher-quality games that were better suited to the BBC Micro! The compilation on this webpage was wrongly labelled "Electron" originally, but we have chosen to correct the error and to label it as the BBC Micro version here.
