Your Type-Ins Wanted

Anyone who has watched the show will know about the type-in section. Here I reveal the games that I typed in over 25 years ago from various magazines. I found a few old C90 tapes a while back, and managed to get the files off into emulator format.

Most of them have not been seen since they were first published, and it's great to see them again, even if some of them are a bit poor.

As this series comes to an end, I have no more type-ins left, so sadly the section may be missing from the next episodes. That, unless you can help!


If you have any type-ins lurking in your collection and want to share them, or if you want to type something out and send it in, please help keep this section alive.

I am looking for anything, not just games, that appeared in a magazine at any point. Please make sure it has not been published already (see the brilliant Type Fantastic website for a complete list of games both available to to be typed in).

You will of course get a shout out on the show!

I look forward to seeing what you can find.
