Added 'Download' and 'Screenshots' sub-sections, and added links to DSK files and galleries of screenshots of type-ins in issues 14 and 15
''Amstrad Action'' neglected to mention that ''Simon'' only works on CPC664 and CPC6128 machines, due to its use of commands that are only available in BASIC 1.1. This was noted in the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 15, Dec 1986|December 1986]] issue (#15), and they offered "apologies to any frustrated 464 users." A reply to a letter from a reader that was published in the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 16, Jan 1987|Christmas 1986]] issue (#16) also stated that the type-in only works on CPC664 and CPC6128 machines.

* Stained Glass (Alastair Scott) - requires BASIC 1.1, as it uses the <tt>FILL</tt> command (''Amstrad Action'' remembered to mention this fact this time!)
* Double Height (Leighton Derrick and Richard Montiero) - Leighton Derrick's version is written entirely in BASIC, and Richard Monteiro's version uses machine code
