Battlestar

Commodore Plus 4 - Released - 1987

While on routine patrol over the planet Nuljai you spot the huge construction of a ring around the planet by the evil Cyfrots to syphon the water and transport it to their home planet. You decide that you will fly over the length of the ring and destroy the Pulse Mines and their marauding bombs.

Beverly Hills Cop

Beverly Hills Cop

Commodore 64 - Released - 1990

Eddie Murphy became a star in the police film Beverly Hills Cop, and it was this license that Tynesoft used to create a game featuring four distinct sub-games, each of which can be practiced from the main screen in some versions. First Axel Foley visits a warehouse to shoot out some bad guys in a Green Beret-influenced sequence. The second level (first on the C64 version) involves driving after 3 lorries full of weapons, and shooting them out one by one, Chase HQ-style. Avoid contact and stay on the road to complete this. Next you must cross the grounds of a mansion, shooting anyone who gets...

Bingo (Tynesoft Computer Software)

Commodore 64 - Released - 1984

Bingo is a gambling game where four to 100 players can play each other with four Bingo cards on the screen and the idea is to fill a card to win money. Each card on the screen is made up of a 5 x 5 grid filled with random numbers between 1 to 99 except the middle square which has the next number called. The computer calls a random number and if a player has that number on their card then they press any key on the keyboard to blank the number out but if the keyboard isn't pressed then that number stays on the card. Once a card has a full line either up/down, left/right, diagonal or the four...

European Games

Commodore 64 - Released - 1986

Like so many other "Games" games, European Games is primarily a joystick-waggler, with some precision elements thrown in. Taking place over five or six disciplines, depending on platform, you generally go left to right (or hit the right keys) with your joystick on those judged on speed, while pressing the fire button once a metre reaches its top (as in golf games) is the general method for disciplines. Throwing is handled by releasing your hammer when the power bar is at the top, with additional rotation control on the Commodore. Swimming involves more joystick action, but you also need to...
