Anyone have any games for this system. I know it was a bit light on games, but remember playing a few back in the day. Looking for disks? Anyone?

What games do you all remember playing on one of these? I am sure I played Oregon Trail for the first time on this. I have a computer now need something to play on it :)

I seem to recall quite a few games available for the I/III...

Time Bandits (with digital audio!)
Eliminator - Defender clone
Defense Command - alien ships would descend and try to steal your 'milk cans' that you had to protect.
Stellar Escort
A Pacman clone
Galaxy invasion - A Galaga clone
Attack Force
Cosmic Fighter
Robot Attack - Berzerk clone
Volcano - a side scroller game
Tons of text adventures....
Dancing demon - you programmed moves into it and it would dance them out
Super Nova - asteroids clone...

Big 5 Software released a good number of those titles, they have a website you can check out (http://www.big5software.com). I believe the majority of those games were released during the 'mod I'' years, but all ran perfectly on Mod III's as the two machines were nearly identical internally. Hope that helps in your quest :)

The link you give isn't the same Big Five Software.
Perhaps you meant this site? http://www.bigfivesoftware.com/

My two favourites don't seem the be on that list.

TimeTrek and StarFighter.

Both could be played on either the I or III
