A Tribute to the Dick Smith System 80

Downloadable Disk Images - Programs on "More Arcade 1" disk

This disk contains a collection of commercial arcade games, written in machine code for speed. It's interesting to see how game writers tried to jazz up the graphics in later 1982-83 games. This often led to a cluttered and ugly screen which detracted from the gameplay.
