  • Graphics Display I was originally 6128 only; the original version is saved as "Graphic6.bas" and a version that should work on 464/664 called "Graphics.bas" is included.
  • Space Hockey was the final type in, however this was revealed to be a rip-off of AA42's Space Hockey Type in as the original author David Hay wrote in to AA the following month, therefore the type in is not included on this page.
