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†.
