Cascade Cassette 50 [BBC Micro]




This compilation contains 50 very poor-quality "shovelware" games.

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

  • Attacker (game 8) is a slightly altered version of Bomber from Beebug magazine, by David Graham.
  • Force Field (game 21) is very similar to Space City from Beebug magazine, by J. Banks.

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.

This compilation was later released on 8BS PD disc TBI201.
