New ZX80 Games

Post by RWAP » Thu Oct 24, 2013 3:33 pm

With a few more games being converted back onto the ZX80, in line with the ZX81 Games thread, I thought it would be useful to add a thread specifically for ZX80 games.

If authors do not want to advertise their software in this thread, then that is perfectly acceptable - we don't intend doing anything with the thread.

If you want to details your software in the thread, please use the format:

Name of Software:
Author:
Release Date:
Requirements (eg. 1K, 16K, AY Card, Hi-Res Scheme):
Description:
Screenshots:
Download link (if available for download):
Commercial / Public Domain / Freeware / Other - please specify?

Most of these games he seems to have taken from C programs for other computers and converted them to the ZX80 - so I mean he has taken the original program and converted it.

Ah okay. I didn't knew that the old computer programs have been developed and/or published as source in C. ;)

Most of them come from the earlier computer's world, such as the PDP-11 and relatives. Most of them was already adapted for CP/M in the meanwhile.
