Description Edit | History

Interceptor Micros also known as Interceptor Software (and later as Interceptor Group) was a developer/publisher of video games for various 8bit and 16bit computer systems popular in Western Europe during the eighties and early nineties.

In addition to publishing games and utilities under the Interceptor label the company ran a tape and later disc duplication business, a print shop and associated graphic design studio, manufactured dual size cassette tape cases under the Compact Case Company brand and also published budget priced software under the Players and Players Premiere labels, and a couple of full-price titles under the premium Pandora label.

The company was owned and operated by father and son team Julian and Richard Jones, out of various locations in and around the small town of Tadley, near Basingstoke in Hampshire, England. At the height of its success the company employed around thirty people, but fell victim to the 90's video game decline, and went out of business in the early nineties.
