Description Edit | History

This is the original 1983 BBC 32K version of Granny's Garden. It has been converted to run on Windows without the aid of a separate emulator. It has the original tune and the mode 7 graphics which are so fondly remembered.

During the early days of computers in primary education Granny's Garden was the program which convinced many teachers that computers really did have a place in the classroom.

This seems to be the number one game that people remember from their days playing on the BBC Micro at school.

The adventure is set in the magical Kingdom of the Mountains, where the King and Queen's six children have been captured by a witch and you have to rescue them.

The program comes complete with a PDF copy of the original manual.

Why not relive your youth and play the "Retro version of Granny's Garden". It could be yours for only £15.50†.

If you would like to purchase it then please click on the PayPal Buy Now button on the right or call our sales team on 01271 325353 and ask for the "Retro version of Granny's Garden".

NB: Retro Granny's Garden is licensed for home use only. Please contact our sales team if you would like to discuss other licensing terms.

This is the first of our retro BBC games to be released. The second of our retro BBC games to be released is Flowers of Crystal.

This product is released as a windows product rather than a "Disk Image" because we feel that it makes it available to a wider audience.
