Plenty of great ones too though! Skirmish is a near-identical version of Williams' Joust, and plays perfectly. Snapper (original release) was so close to Pac-Man that Acornsoft were forced to change the graphics. Mr Ee! is an almost perfect clone of Mr Do! ...and so on.
I don't think any of these were officially licensed releases. Maybe licensing was the kiss of death for the Beeb!
