Hit and Run


Status: Full Game, Findability: 1/5

A quick entry for a game which was flagged up by Peter Weighill whilst doing some research.

Hit and Run was a cricket game which was advertised in the likes of Your 64 and Commodore Computing International in 1984, and was a one or two player game where you would captain and select your team in a 40 overs innings match.

30 players were available for selection, offering millions of permutations according to the advert. Conditions would vary from match to match, and the game included the usual run outs, wides, no-balls, byes and leg-byes.

The game was for sale at £7.95 on cassette and £9.50 on disk and seemed to only be available via mail order from a company called Bytewell.

Thanks to contributor Dave Bulwer, the game was recovered from an inherited collection of games, confirming its release which we are pleased to attach here!

Case closed!

  1. Just a quick note to say I have just bought this game on eBay and have converted it to a D64 along with a couple of other mail order sports games. Once I get around to tidying it up, I will be sure to release it to you.
