FPGABee is a hardware emulation of a Microbee - the classic Aussie home computer of the 80's!

My Games

As a teenager I wrote and sold 5 Microbee games. Here's some screen shots and info on each. Although somewhat cringe-worthy now, at the time were quite respectable games!

Hopper

Frogger clone sold through AUSBUG.

Robot Fire

Definitely the best of my games. You shoot vertically, the evil robots shoot horizontally. Quite a few levels. Self Published.

Robot Fire sat on a tape in my shed for over 20 years before I recovered it.
