This web page exists to record the many items of software that Stainless sold for the TI99/4a, mostly on cassette tape. We start with programs in the last catalogue, and I'll add older programs (dropped in later catalogues) to the end. Enjoy. Alphabetic list of titles and authors
Most titles carried the Stainless name only on the packaging, the actual coding, even where programs were only sold by Stainless, did not carry the Stainless name.

From the U.S.A, by Mark Sumner (PS Software, Challenger Software): OCTAL plus KEYS OF THE CASTLE. Extended Basic. Five Star review. 100% for value. 90% for playability and Graphics. Read the Review
In OCTAL, from your ship in screen centre you must fight off enemy ships attacking from the sides of the screen. Several screens. In KEYS you must move through a maze of increasing hazardousness to locate keys to open chests to obtain passwords... avoid ghosts... at higher levels the maze may be invisible and fatally electrified. Challenging. Two games for GBP9.00
[Ray Kazmer, an ExBas fanatic in California played FLOORAWAY for four hours when he first saw it. Tony McGovern (Funlweb) thinks it is the best TI BASIC program he has seen, and one of the best in any language. If you must, the program DOES run in ExBas (faster).][Mr Trueman left the TI community in April 1985, moving on to a more popular computer]
Five star review in HCW. 85% for playability. Joysticks optional.
LOTS of different screens as you try to climb a wall, faced with many different patterns of attack to dodge and avoid. A challenging game...who can make it to face the dragon?
[Stainless sold just five copies of this program despite its good review]
GOBLINS REVENGE. TI BASIC. Pewterware. GBP 6.00 Five star review in HCW. with 88% for playability. Read the Review
Find your way out of the maze, and avoid the goblin chasing you.
The maze layout differs each play, and only one third of it is visible on screen at any one time! Two levels of difficulty, and if you are very good you may find a third level!
Down the road towards you comes other trafic (and oil patches). How long can you avoid them for?
Just as you think you have the hang of it, along comes nightfall, and all you can see are the headlights. 5 star review.
HCW qave 5 star review and said 'by far the best for a long time'
100% for graphics and for value
You must guide your ship into the depths of an alien planet, collecting fresh fuel and ammo along the way. Defend yourself and when required blast your way through. Several different hazards!
