Kongo by Acornsoft BBC

Postby Michael Brown » Fri Mar 17, 2017 4:02 pm

Hi All,

Has anyone got a BBC B copy of a basic game called Kongo by Acornsoft from 1982/83
I have an electron copy and was wondering if it got released on the BBC or just Electron.

Mick.

Hi Paul,
That's the game.

So was Me and My Micro a Electron only compilation or was it released on the BBC?
I cannot find it anywhere.

The Fred Harris, Yorkshire Television connection sounds familiar, and I imagine that there's a mention of the television programme in Electron User from that time. I'm guessing/recalling that this was a tie-in to the TV show which used the Electron to demonstrate things. Probably no Beebs on YTV, though, and Acornsoft probably weren't going to do a similar Beeb release for something not BBC-endorsed/funded.

Thanks for the info.

It is easy to add a routine to slow down the game for the BBC, but I was hoping a BBC version would have been written.
