The List of Sam Coupé Games

This page was written in 2001. Last minor update: 22.03.2012


Pipe ManiaHere comes the list of Sam Coupé games those I've been tested in SimCoupé. All games were tested on the MS-DOS versions of SimCoupé 0.70, 0.74, 0.78 and ASCD 0.90 and 0.95/0.96/0.97. If a game worked in an old version of SimCoupé, I haven't tested it in the latest version. I assume it works too. Some games can be spread in more than one version, so if you have other experiences than me, please let me know. Also, you may have other nice games those aren't listed here. It's because I stopped work with Sam Coupé in the early 1994, so the games listed here are mostly the old ones. So, if you have a nice game, please pack it and mail to me.

SpheraSome games are full-price, the others are public domain or freeware. If you want to download some free-of-charge games, simply click on a highlighted name. Warning: There are usually some games packed together onto one diskette. So, if you download one of them, you'll automatically get the other ones too. It is possible that I'll add next packages in the future.

All games listed here were tested in SAD image format. Some games were originally copy-protected, but the protection had to be removed in order to run the game in emulator! Please don't ask for these SAD images, I can't give them to you. The authors still stupidly keep their copyrights, so I can't give you anything. I don't understand why somebody wants to sell 1990 games in 2001 or 2012, but he does, so we must respect it.
