Nice list!


If you don't mind, I'll be checking it against the list of games we have listed at the PCW Wiki, to add the missing ones to our list too.


As you can see, we try to preserve anything PCW with best quality, so if you would like to help us, you'll be welcome!

Hi, yes please do. I've just noticed an error - Classic Collection vol 1 contains 'Munch It' not 'Much It'.

Quite a decent collection, considering that it was not meant to be a gaming machine!  :D

I am using CPM Box to play PCW games. Some games load and play with no problem. Some I can not get to work even after trying multiple different download of the .dsk file. For example, Apple Jack will not work for me. Do some games require more than just "inserting" the disk and then hitting the Play button? Do i need to change hardware etc? thanks inadvance

You must boot the computer with the CP/M system disk or start the emulator with the appropriate .dsk file. Then you change the floppy or .dsk file.
The dir command shows you the directory. .COM files can be started.
