Re: a Multi User Dungeon needs some TLC!

I'll see if I can track down the software and hopefully get on. What is the process for connecting? Do you have to ring up first etc? The last time I tried anything like this was on my speccy with a viewdata modem connecting to silicon village.

The Wild Bunch from the speccy. Someone did a lovely conversion of it for the C64 recently. I reckon the BBC would do it justice too.

Re: Acorn Archimedes game recomendations

Adventure-wise you have stuff like:
Haunted House, Guild of Theives, The Pawn,Corruption then stuff like Pandoras Box too.

I've had my A3010 from new and it was used for games all the time.
