Retrogames and Amstrad CPC links

Retrogames are those classics from the birth of computer games, when playability counted more than presentation.

Free Repton game download

Repton is one of the classic games of the 8-bit era. It's an addictive puzzle game where you have to find diamonds in a mine and move rocks around to clear the path. Although it's most closely associated with the BBC and Acorn computers, versions or clones appeared on most other computers of the time.

The original creators Superior Interactive have now re-created it for the PC, along with the sequels Repton 2 and Repton 3.

Visit Superior Interactive to download free playable demos of all versions of Repton, Galaforce Worlds and other games from the Superior Interactive archives.
