BBC Micro emulator

Topic.
Been looking on Google and found one, now I'm looking for games for it, all of which are legal by the way, I am specifically looking for a game I used to play in the IT Room at School called Repton 3, it was a Boulderdash clone where you collected Diamonds and avoided/killed monsters.
Found a website called "Stairway to hell" which has loads of BBC Micro game files and have downloaded Repton 3 but I can't get it to work.

Re: BBC Micro emulator

I hate that little Repton character....caused me hours of frustration. Angry
I have a couple of BBC micros, monitors and hard drives complete with a floppy disc version of Repton 3 in the loft if you want to play it native.
I downloaded a BBC emulator and ran a copy of Elite as that was my favourite game. I didn't try Repton.

Re: BBC Micro emulator

What emulator are you using, as it may require a bit of configuring first to get that to run?

Re: BBC Micro emulator

I downloaded BeebEm earlier and a zip file of Repton 3 from Stairway to hell.

Re: BBC Micro emulator

Ah BeebEm, should be ok with that. You may want to try out the different modes available, see if that game will run or not.

Re: BBC Micro emulator

Never mind, I found a Flash remake of Repton 3 on Google.
