RISC World


Aaron Timbrell rounds up the software directory

Welcome to the first DiscWorld column of Volume 7. This time we are giving every reader a free copy of Desktop Repton! For those that don't know Repton is the classic Maze game. This is the full 32bit version that runs on the Iyonix and the A9 from Advantage Six.

Desktop Repton - original rrp 19.90

Although this special RISC World edition of Repton is not restricted in any way, for copyright reasons some levels have been omitted. However, Alligata media, who publish the RISC OS version of Repton, are offering a special deal for RISC World subscribers and you can upgrade to the very latest version with all the addional levels and hi-res graphics for just £6 including UK carriage. See the flyer enclosed with this issue or the Index page for more details.

The complete DiscWorld line up

As per usual we have our collections of the latest RISC OS games and applications, as well as support files for this issues articles. So the full DiscWorld line up looks something like this:


All the games from this issues games world column.


All the latest PD, shareware and freeware releases from the PD column.


A full version of Desktop Repton.


This contains two sets of Toolbox Modules. The Castle archive contains the latest 26/32 bit neutral system components, required if you want to run a lot of new software releases on 26bit machines. The RISCOS Ltd archive contains later and improved versions of a number of modules and is suitable for all versions of RISC OS from 3.1 onwards. We have also included copies of SharedUnixLib and UnixHome as these are needed by some programs.
