DescriptionBASIC Computer Games is a type-in magazine featuring a collection of roughly a 100 games (and some non-games) written in the BASIC programming language. Initially released in 1973 for Mini-computers, later editions provided specific information for microcomputers. There are slight differences in listed games based on the edition and language of the release. The games run on Altair/Microsoft BASIC and the magazine gives instructions of how the games can be converted to other flavours of BASIC. Most of the games run on many more systems than MobyGames currently documents such as the Altair 8800 and OSI.
