Ok, so we’re cheating a little – but it is very possible that all of these games were released. So now we just need to make sure they get preserved.
Sophisticated Games advertised in various magazines during the early 80’s for their range of games, which were pretty much BASIC produced titles that were sold via mail-order. A typical back bedroom operation it seems.
Here is the list so far which were advertised and their statuses:
- Cricket …. PRESERVED! SEE DOWNLOADS!
- League Soccer … PRESERVED! SEE DOWNLOADS!
- Whodunnit? …. Currently lost
- Top of the pops …. In GB64
- Election Night Special …. Within C64tapes.org, but not yet preserved.
- Party 4 (Containing Masterword, A Day At The Races, Game X (Strip Poker) and Consequences) …. currently lost
- Adults Only …. In GB64
Now there are titles of them names but with different companies, so it is possible that Sophisticated games “borrowed” titles. But so far it seems based on the ones we know are out there, that they were all developed by a R.Hill (Richard Hill?).
Do you know any more about the lost ones, and can you help us digitally preserve them?
Both Cricket and League Soccer were preserved by Dave Bulwer and kindly provided to GTW to put in the archive. So download below and enjoy! We hope to find the others soon!
