Title: BASIC games from other computers you want to play on CPC ?
Post by: SRS on 22:47, 17 August 18
So , well, after converting a bunch of adventures from "foreign" basic dialects to CPC, I run out of stuff/listings. Do you have pure basic games/listings you want to see running on the cpc ? well, not from big computers like amiga or so :) ... just put the link/source here, me or someone else could convert it to our nice machine then.

By coincidence I was looking at a game for the BBC BASIC the other day. It's not an adventure game though and it has a lot of graphical commands in it too. There is also some DATA in it, though it appears to be Musical DATA. I thought perhaps it might be a good game to test with BBC BASIC for CPC, though you'll have to run it through CP/M, it works in either CP/M 2.2 or CP/M Plus, though I found it much easier to use with CP/M Plus (only because I was doing a lot of DSK image switching with CP/M 2.2 and became somewhat annoyed with the process). So from what I csn tell it's probably only the Graphical Coordinate stuff which only needs changing:

Are all of the BASIC Computer Games (http://www.vintage-basic.net/games.html) type-ins published for the Amstrad CPC? They're kind of simple, but should almost all run with little or no modification.
I was glad to see someone had ported an early version of Oregon Trail (http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Westward_Ho!).
