Computer Gamer was a multi-format magazine run by Argus Press from early 1984 to early 1986. The magazine is rather difficult to find - and we have only located one issue for our own collection. However, the 26 Computer Gamer magazines included a number of type-in programs for the BBC/Electron.

Fortunately, whilst we may not have a complete archive of the magazines, the World of Spectrum website does. Using their scans, Dave E was able to type up the programs in April 2009 to produce the Computer Gamer Collection disc. This is the first item in this catalogue, because it contains every program that was published in Computer Gamer.

The individual programs that complement a particular issue of a magazine are also available as separate disc images. Whilst these are clearly superfluous to requirements if you download the Computer Gamer Collection disc, they do illustrate the quality of the programs and may also be useful to someone looking to find a particular game quickly.
