Amstrad Games Book by Kevin Bergin & Andrew Lacey
« on: 18:20, 07 September 21 »
Does anyone have a copy of this book?


I'd be interested in seeing a list of the contents, as I'm trying to produce an entry on CASA for the text adventure that's included in it.


I know the details of the Spanish version! :)

I guess that it's probably this game...

Edit: Yes, comparing the BASIC code with the Spanish version (book is online for that) then it matches.

It's available to download from ACME, along with scans of many other books. :) Look in the LITTERATURE LIVRES > (ENG) ANGLAIS > MELBOURNE HOUSE directory; unfortunately I can't provide a link to this directory as CPCWiki doesn't like the square brackets in the URL.
