Overview - Generation Design
Generation Design are continuing to produce budget games for the Acorn
market. Their software is targetted at general family use rather than at
hardened gamers - the emphasis is on a simple game with simple graphics that
will appeal to younger players. If you're the sort of person who enjoys
playing something like Alone in the Dark or Sim City 2000 then
their games probably aren't for you.
Just about all of their games are definitely for children, in my opinion, but they're
all cheap. You can now buy a CD from APDL ("Archimedes Public Domain Library") with all Generation Design games on for £16.50 plus £1 postage and packaging.
Generation Design's games include Caves of Confusion,
a sideways-scrolling shoot'em'up; The Last CyberMoch, a sideways
scrolling platform game; RoboCatch, a space invaders-type game;
SeaTrek, where you must wander around a large scrolling area collecting
objects; and The Pharaoh's Secret Tombs, where you must click on sequences
of arrows to guide a character roun the screen.
Generation Design offer a free 14-day home trial of their games - for

All their games work on any RISC OS version, and recent versions of their software
work with both 8-bit and 16-bit sound systems.
