I don't believe so. You can head over to the Dragon Archive to check. They have pretty much everything on the Dragon there.

Didn't even realise you'd joined this forum till now. Excellent. Hi Elgin, yes, I've been here a while but don't post very much! Jolly good, look forward to seeing you there. Due to domestic issues, I had to bail out of running things and missed a whole season since you went Need to squeeze in a ga...

What about the Mattel Aquarius? This poor machine isn’t even listed in Retro Gamer's computer guide! I never owned one originally but I remember seeing it in the shop (I think it was Boots) and having a play with it. I do have one in my retro collection now though which I bought on eBay. It has lo...

Hi Ant, Yes, I’m now back from my trip to the US. It’s funny; I always quite fancied having an Oric! :shock: I think some of the screenshots of games looked quite tempting. I keep trying to buy one on eBay to add to my retro collection. Collywobbles PS: I’ve got my 2 nominations in for Wk7 of ...

All of this talk of your dads owning Dragons is making me feel old! I owned a Dragon 32 back in the 80's and was very proud of it. My mates had C64s and Spectrums. I learnt my trade as a programmer on the Dragon and it's what I still do today. It had some pretty good games - some of which were even ...

I believe Attack of the Mutant Camels came out in 1982 and Revenge of the Mutant Camels in 1984. I haven't played Revenge since, but you took the role of the Camel (instead of attacking them with a space ship as in AMC) and had to shoot all sorts of bizarre enemies. Some I of the other nasties I rem...

Attack of the Mutant Camels

Just had another go at Jeff Minter's Attack of the Mutant Camels (on a real C64 not an emulator) and clocked up 94787 reaching Sector 16. I used to be quite good at AMC, but I can't remember what I used to score 20 odd years ago! I still find the Atari joystick the best for controlling the ship. I p...

The first game on my own computer would have been either Quest or Metioroids on the Dragon 32, both by Dragon Data. These both came bundled with the machine. Quest was a an RPG written in Basic and used text based characters for the graphics. I still played it for hours though! Metioroids was a pret...

Yup, no Tandy, but I owned a Dragon 32. I let it go some years ago, but I now have another one that I bought on eBay. When Dragon games got harder to find I used to go into the Tandy store in town to buy CoCo games hoping they'd run on my Dragon. As long as they were in machine code and didn't use a...
