A cheat entry for now, as its possible that all 4 of the games were actually released – so this is more of a call to try and find these games and get them digitally preserved and available.

Piper Software was flagged up to GTW64 by contributor Håvar (who kindly loaned us Pluff for preservation a while back).  He has mentioned that there were four titles due for release by Piper Software called Dinosaurs, Birds, Astronomy and Aircraft.

They were all  educational titles, and were part of Piper Books LTD.  Each title came with an information book, so the game was likely sold in book shops.

None of the games are on Gamebase, although Dinosaurs is currently a missing entry.

Can anyone help us to preserve all four of the games?   We guess that they had a very limited release overall, although they were all released on the ZX Spectrum

    I own the dinosaurs version by Piper Software for the commodore 64. Do you still require information on this?

      Hi Kevin, do you have any means to back up C64 tapes to PC? It would be great to see any scans or backup of the game. Another guy has just found a copy too. Great to hear that the games are out there though! 🙂

        Thanks for the response, sorry but unsure how to back up tapes to PC.
        Good to hear another has been unearthed, is that also of the same topic as mine? ( Dinosaurs ) or one of the others in the set.

          No problem Kevin – yes, the other copy is Dionosaurs, as well as the Birds title. I’m hoping they will do some preservation work on both tapes to make them available on here soon 🙂
