Full Instructions

The Last Ninja

The state of the martial arts... fighting with fists, swords, numchukas and skurikens, through six puzzling levels.

The top BBC/Electron game of 1989.

"Ninja is fast, furious and totally addictive" ... The Micro User

By Fair Means Or Foul

A realistic and entertaining boxing simulation. You can even cheat... if the ref's not looking! Have you the skills and cunning to become World Champion? Keyboard or joystick controls.

"Excellent boxing game" ... The Micro User


A brilliant, full-feature version of the classic joust game, with beautifully animated sprites. 1 and 2 player options.

"I can recommend Skirmish wholeheartedly. It is one of the most playable games I have ever seen" ... The Micro User


A new, much-improved version of the classic Alligata Software game, with twenty tricky, but highly amusing, levels.

"The game is a winner... very enjoyable, sure to give many hours of entertainment" ... Electron User
