Notes

This compilation contains fifty very poor-quality "shovelware" games.

  • Game 2 is supposed to be Galactic Attack, but instead it is Galactic Dogfight, which also appears as game 9.
  • Game 29 is supposed to be Spaceship, but instead it is Space Search, which also appears as game 42.
  • Game 47 is supposed to be Jetmobile, but instead it is Jet Flight, which also appears as game 30.
  • Game 40 is supposed to be Do Your Sums, but instead it is Die Thrower.

U.T.S. stands for "Ulrich Technical Services" and is the brainchild of its owner, Guy Ulrich Wilhelmy. An interview with Guy can be found here.

More than you ever wanted to know about Cascade Cassette 50.

It appears that Cascade labelled the BBC Micro cassette and the Acorn Electron cassette the wrong way round. (Also, some games were repeated.) The cassette that was originally labelled "BBC" contained games mainly in MODE 6, which suits the Electron much better, while the cassette labelled "Electron" had higher-quality games that were better suited to the BBC Micro! The compilation on this webpage was wrongly labelled "BBC" originally, but we have chosen to correct the error and to label it as the Electron version here.
