30 Games

See the history of Spectrum games programming flash before your eyes with this one score and ten grab bag of games from Quicksilva.

Crammed onto two cassettes and culled from labels such as Bug Byte, Lothlorien, New Generation, Argus Press Software and Quicksilva, 30 Games is a collection of golden oldies and oddities which will give hours of nostalgic pleasure.

Playing games such as 3-D Tunnel with its onrushing bats, frogs, rats and tube trains may not be state of the art programming but they are still great fun whatever the vintage. It doesn't take a maths genius to work out that even if you hate half the games it's still great value, especially if you missed them first time around.

And no, we don't have space to list them all. Oh all right then... Carpet Capers, Antics, Planet Fall, Grid Runner, Bismark, Meteor Storm, Jet Set Gerry, 3-D Tunnel, Stock Market, Fridge Frenzy, The Valley, Dragon's Bane, Demon Knight, Ned's Garden, Space Intruder, Mighty Magus, Fall Of Rome, Draughts, Xadom, Detective, 20 Tons, Chess Player, Micro Maze, Tube Cube, Invasion, Escape, Laser Zone, Strontium Dog, Pyromania and lastly (and with a title like this probably leastly!) Blood And Guts.
