Free Usborne 1980s Computer Books

#1 Post by Alastair » Thu Feb 11, 2016 12:46 am

In the early 1980s Usborne published a number of books with type-in listings for adventure games. Now Usborne has released fifteen of its 1980s computer books, including some text adventure books, for download as free PDFs.

Neat, I used to have most of these as a sprog. I still have Adventure Games on my book shelf (it has a Haunted House text adventure in along with my scribble notes for converting to the Sharp MZ-700, which was the only computer we had in the early 80s).

Oops, I should have updated this thread a few months back!

The address for these books has changed, the above link will take you there but in case the old link stops working here is the current direct link (scroll to the bottom of the page to see the books).
