TI BASIC. Colin Banks
Read the review
A simple program in which you control a ship at screen centre and shoot down various aliens attacking from 8 different directions.
TI BASIC. Philip Hindley
A really simple maze to solve. The entire maze is displayed on screen, and all you have to do is get to the end. BUT...along the way are various invisible games for you to stumble over...
adding 5 two digit numbers ...watching and hoping you don't get obliterated by deadly dots ... trying to guess a number as the roof collapses ... being sent back to the start... a non-serious program for dedicated gamblers.
EXTENDED BASIC. Andrew Myers
A graphic maze/adventure. There are 18 levels each with 40 rooms. Each floor layout is different and higher levels have more energetic monsters.
To move from one level to the next you must locate 3 keys in the correct rooms (colour coded: colour tv essential). Only one room visible at a time so make a map!
in TI BASIC from Not Polyoptics.
Explore a large number of rooms to find hidden treasure. One room displayed on screen at a time.
Various difficulty levels and objects placed differently on each play. Nearly 100 different room layouts too! You cannot be killed by monsters but watch your oxygen supply.

A tile laying game for one or two players with superb graphics.

JOYSTICKS ARE REQUIRED. GBP 13.00
in TI BASIC. From TImagination. Read the Review
Two programs on one tape.
JOYSTICKS ARE REQUIRED.
Outstanding graphics in these well crafted programs.
Program One: Entering a dark churchyard while lightning plays overhead, you must dig up three keys hidden by a recently deceased miser. If the grave you uncover does not contain a key, the disturbed occupant will come after you, and you must avoid his deadly touch.
Program Two: Having found the keys...you enter the labrynth and have the task of recovering riches from the vaults.
Some contain weapons, while others contain a variety of harmful creatures.
This part of the program is also a maze game, as you have to find your way out, with or without riches!
Buy Walls and Bridges together with Zombie Mambo - three programs at a special price - GBP 19.75
. EXTENDED BASIC. from Intersoft. Read the Review
Your gun moves up and down the left side of the screen as groups of aliens attack from the right. If they pass you, they reappear on the right again. This game is against the clock....ah, they also fire back so watch out
... GBP 10.00
EXTENDED BASIC. from Intersoft. Read the Review
Yes, another asteroids game, the difference in this one is that you can take it real easy and score a measly 25 per asteroid, or take some real risks and maybe earn 1000 points for an asteroid!
The score you earn depends entirely on how you play the game. Survival is not important: how much can you score before destruction?
DEFEND THE CITIES.
EXTENDED BASIC from Intersoft.
From an alien mother ship drifting across the top of the screen fall.
Move your ship and destroy the bombs and the meother craft before the city below is destroyed. Four difficulty levels.
DEFEND THE CITIES 2.
Machine Code for MINI MEMORY MODULE.
from Intersoft. Joysticks optional. A machine code version of the above game, with greater accuracy in detecting hits, and of course faster response
TI Basic by Colin Banks for two players.
A track laying game, but different. In a preset grid players must direct their cars: these lay a trail of thick smoke (which randomly clears in sections).
The object is not to run into a trail of smoke or the other car. The cars 'wrap' around the screen.
Extended Basic. by Paul Triffitt.
Guide a snake to eat worms. The more it eats the longer it gets and the higher your score. Do not collide with the screen edge or your own body. Pretty fast and becomes difficult.
