Download my Amstrad CPC 464 and 6128 games and utilities

I was a fairly regular contributor to the Type-ins section of Amstrad Action magazine and the listings pages of Amstrad Computer User. In 1993 I wrote a book, The Basic Idea, which you can now read on this site. My free Amstrad disc includes most of the software and games I wrote for those magazines and the book, plus some software that is otherwise unreleased. Many of the programs have been updated for this site release, with enhanced presentation, gameplay and sound.

Games and toys

Utilities and programming demonstrations

Programs have been edited to fit on the disc, with several demonstrations being compiled into a single program. This means that references in the tutorial to line numbers may not be correct. Contact me if you're struggling with this and would like a copy of the original Basic Idea disc.
