The Giddy Game Show

Postby ivor_the_injun » Thu Aug 02, 2007 6:47 pm

Was just looking around for a disk or tape image of this game, and I can't find mention of it anywhere. Can't see it on any of the "missing" lists either.

Anyone got this one?

Which BBC game (not Giddy Game Show) actually had the music in it from the TV programme?
Andy Davis.

just tried the DL link at bottom of everygamegoing.com, and first game just says 'Bad Program'
so I've bid on it, so leave well alone for 2day! [-X
& then I can make a MIA .UEF of it :) & scan intrustions on inside inlay cover.

I can 'splash' out on it as a customer gave me a £40 tip the other day (& two cups of tea) 8)

The file 1.ALPH1 is corrupted (as is 1.ALPH2) , only starting from line 270... must be missing a sector or two. Perhaps Dave E has a working copy somewhere?
