BASIC Computer Games is a type-in magazine featuring a collection of roughly 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 on how the games can be converted to other flavours of BASIC.
