MISSING IN ACTION - COVERTAPES

A joint effort of Martijn van der Heide, Steve Brown, Andy Barker, Tony Barnett and Juan Pablo López-Grao.


Thought that nearly all games ever written were available from this site? Guess again! Here you find a huge list of all games known to be commercially produced, but which are not available in this archive yet.

Any help in resolving these is highly appreciated!

Please help us shorten this list and turn all game names into download links. If possible, please provide them in TAP or TZX format (and I don't mean multifaced files!), so the loading screen and any additional data (extra levels etc) are present. Files that were only ever released on disk can of course be provided in disk-image format (DSK or TRD).

Please look carefully and match both the game's name as well as the publisher's name. For example, Ant Attack is on the list, but this is not the one from Sandy White (that one has been in the archive for years).

Uploads can be done using either HTTP or FTP. Please see this page for more info.

Please make sure to also check the Spectrum Tape Preservation project!


Games already available, but incomplete or broken, are printed in italics, and the column 'Replace' tells the reason.
Column 'M' means: this is a multiloading game (so we really need a TAP or TZX file)

Only (perfect!) TZX images are kept of covertapes, and MP3 for any additional soundtracks.
