Welcome to Cronosoft - Specialists in brand new software on cassette for 8-bit computers.
NEW GAMES? FOR OLD MACHINES? Yes...that's right. And you heard it here first.
You can buy brand new software on cassette for your Spectrum, Commodore 64, Vic 20, ZX81, Amstrad CPC, Commodore 16/+4, and Dragon 32/Coco from us, and in doing so, you're helping to keep these machines alive. We're non-profit making, but also pay royalties for every copy sold. We are undergoing a massive website change at the moment, which hopefully will make it easier to navigate, and provide more information, with a page about each release. At the moment, a lot of the old back catalogue of games is unavailable to buy from the website until it's completed, but you can always contact me, and I'll see what I can do to supply most of them. The latest releases are all available now on here, however. There are bound to be bugs in the site at the moment, which I'm trying to iron out....
WE WANT YOUR GAMES TO RELEASE !
We're always on the lookout for new games to release, for nearly all formats. If you've written a great new game, or perhaps have the rights to a game that you've had published back in the day, then we'd love to release it. Just email us!
We DON'T require any exclusive rights, just the permission to selling it for a value for money price - you're still completely free to offer it as a free download if you want to, and we'll pay you £1.00 a copy for every one that we sell as a standalone cassette title.
Formats that I have the capability to handle at the moment (I think...) (Spectrum, Commodore 64, Vic 20, ZX81, Amstrad CPC, Commodore 16, Commodore +4, Tandy Color, Dragon 32, Sord/CGL M5, Laser 200, Tandy MC-10, TI99/4A, Oric-1/Atmos, Sharp MZ-700, Mattel Aquarius, BBC Micro, Atari 400/800, Sinclair QL, Atari ST)
Reissue of classic titles: Due to popular demand, we're reissuing the excellent games HIGGLEDY PIGGLEDY and QUANTUM GARDENING, which haven't been available for a long time. Combining Jonathan Cauldwell's bizarre sense of humour with outstanding originality, these will keep you playing for ages. These are selling like hot cakes - if you haven't got a copy yet, then what are you waiting for?
EGGHEAD - A CRACKING DAY OUT. This game was completed by Jonathan Cauldwell many years ago, and was intended as a one-off special edition, to tie in with the Bletchley Park museum. However, this never happened, and it's here to buy now. Egghead has had five official game outings - this more obscure platform puzzler is a kind of EGGHEAD 5.5 or 5B !
