Downland

Dragon 32/64 - Released - 1984

In Downland, the object is to locate keys which unlock doors as you navigate underground caverns by climbing ropes and jumping or swinging across chasms. Difficulty is increased by falling acid, runaway boulders and a time limit which upon expiration means death by a flying bat.

Galagon

Galagon

Dragon 32/64 - Released - 1984

This is a remake of Galaga and was programmed by Brett Keeton. You control your spacecraft at the bottom of the screen. The objective of the game is to shoot as many aliens without having your own ship destroyed by alien fire or crashing into swooping aliens. The aliens attack in waves and most of them will stay in formation at the top of the screen while some swoop down to drop bombs or crash into you. Every so often, you will be presented with a special challenging stage where aliens just move across the screen in fixed patterns, and you can shoot as many as you manage for an extra...

Madness & the Minotaur

Dragon 32/64 - Released - 1982

A bold adventurer descends into the enormous labyrinth of the Cretan King Minos at Knossos, hoping to part seven mythical monsters (including the terrifying, titular, Minotaur) from sixteen treasures and escape with his life, helped only by a handful of arcane spells acquired while navigating dead ends and the enigmatic ramblings of an inspired Oracle wandering the maze.

Racer Ball

Racer Ball

Dragon 32/64 - Released - 1983

Racer Ball is a maze-chase game inspired by the Namco arcade classic Pac-Man. You control your Racer Ball through the corridors of the moon base, avoiding the Laseroids. Pick up the solar cells for points, and you'll advance to the next level when all solar cells have been collected. Additional items will appear in the maze, which can be collected for extra points. There are four energizers that can be collected and that will enable Racer Ball to chase down and destroy the Laseroids for a short amount of time.

Slay The Nereis

Slay The Nereis

TRS-80 Color Computer

You are the commander in charge of three mini-subs. During your mission, you soon discover that the area you were sent to scout is a dangerous one, teeming with several innocent-looking creatures-schools of fish, manta rays, starfish, jellyfish, and an occasional "Nereis," a marine creature which excretes a paralyzing poison. In addition to these native aquatic creatures, there is an enemy navy destroyer which fires depth charges with your submarine as its target.
