Please note that these games are for the Sinclair QL home computer (or emulators).  Some of the games require expanded memory or enhanced graphics (such as available on the Aurora motherboard, or Q40/Q60 compatibles and the QPC2 emulator).  If so, this is indicated in the description of the program.

If you are just interested in finding out more about the Sinclair QL Home Computer and trying out some of its games on your PC, we also offer the Sinclair QL Games Collection, which is a package designed to be run under Windows, and includes a runtime QL emulator package and 10 commercial Sinclair QL games, for just £10.

Sinclair QL Games Collection for Windows PCs


One of the growth areas of computing is retro-games, allowing people to play arcade games which they remember from their youth and also capturing the hearts of some of the new gaming generation.

RWAP Services is able to provide various re-releases of several arcade games originally produced for the Sinclair QL, allowing you to recall your youth and those hazy days of the mid to late 1980s when computers were just beginning to make their presence felt in the home and computer games had just emerged from an era of a couple of lines and a dot on the TV screen to represent a game of tennis.

You might also like to see if there is any second hand games software which may interest you.  Another option, would be to download one of the excellent ZX Spectrum emulators for the Sinclair QL and use it to run the wide range of games which were produced for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum - we ourselves have a wide range of second hand programs for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

Q-Word - a brand new game for the Sinclair QL which will revolutionise leisure software - this will make the most of the new graphics modes available on the latest versions of the Sinclair QL, such as the Aurora motherboard, the Q40 and Q60 computers and emulators such as QPC, whilst a version for original QLs will also be made available.  The aim of the game is simple - you need to clear a grid of letters by making as many words as you can from consecutive letters in the grid.  Points are awarded depending on the letters used as well as the length of the word.

PC Users can play a demo of this program, which can be downloaded from our dedicated QWord page.

 

 

 

   

Alien Hijack

Alien Hijack is is a 3D Adventure game, based on-board a ship, where you are the engineer.  Having entered the Bermuda Triangle, you find that the ship has been taken over by aliens and the crew vanished.

You have to explore 192 rooms to collect 3 codes, which together form the shape of an anchor, avoiding the various entities inhabiting the rooms.   With these codes, you can regain control of the ship.

There is food to replenish your strength, but moving about takes some getting used to.

Jungle Eddi (Arcade Game) 256K ** re- released Dec '04 **
Review: QL World Dec'86

Another superb arcade game  light relief over the long winter months, Jungle Eddi includes the best features of an outdoor maze and elements of risk to sustain your interest.

Two levels of play are provided as the initial options which determine the speed of character movement and your reaction time. Local scenery and background throughout the game occurs in a hundred smoothly-changing, random obstacle layouts - no two successive games are exactly the same.

Well-balanced in terms of action, risks, elements of judgment - to jump or not to jump - and movement options, you have opportunities of gaining lives as you, in the tradition of Tarzan, jump from ground to branch or through the trees to capture the flying hearts. At the same time you must avoid poisonous snakes, scorpions and tortoises, or falling to your death into crevasses or drowning in the evil, smelly marshes.

Points are gained by capturing flying bells, numbers and pigmy stickmen versions of Tinkerbell, or is it Peter Pan? If Eddi is on the ground, he can be killed by greenfly or, if he jumps, the greenfly are worth 200 points. Pinkfly can either push you to your death or cause you to jump.

NB: Does not work under Pointer Environment or SMSQ/e !!

The Lonely Joker v2 384K

The Lonely Joker from Jochen Merz Software, is a collection of six different patience card games - Echelon, Napoleon, Cascade, Spine, Crapaud and Four in Hand.

The games are all pointer controlled, so you can play with a mouse on the Sinclair QL and includes the normal patience game which we all love, plus 5 other types of patience. You can select whether to turn the pack over in sets of 3 or single cards.

Excellent graphics and smooth play make this at least as good as the patience card game built into Microsoft's Windows.

Open Golf (Golf Program) 384K
Review: QL World Dec'90, QL Leisure Review 1, QReview Vol 1 Iss 4, Quanta Oct '98

Do you enjoy playing golf, but cannot afford the club fees or just cannot face going out into the howling rain to play a round? No ?? Then do you have an hour or two spare and would like to find something to fill the gap ?? In either of these cases, this is the program for you.

Open Golf is an excellent implementation of a classic game - select the correct club for your shot and watch the overhead shot as the ball flies through the air. With 50 18-hole golf courses to choose from and close up 3-D shots of the you making your swing, or on the putting green, this has lots of features to keep the whole family entertained.

You don't need to be a real golfer to play this one, it is well designed and easy to handle, taking account of swing, power and wind effects; it takes some thought to get a hole in one!!

QuizMaster II (Pub Quiz Program) 128K
Review: QL World Jan 89, QReview Vol 1 Iss 2

Quick... Which Actor Starred in Three Way Stretch and The Pink Panther??

QuizMaster II is a colourful implementation of a Pub Quiz game, with two modules of questions currently available, each containing over 300 questions.  Both modules, a General Knowledge Module and a TV & Film Module, are supplied with the program. Other modules will hopefully be released if demand dictates.  Only downside is that the questions are very 1980s based in line with playing the original Trivial Pursuit nowadays!

Each question appears on screen one letter at a time and you can either play another human player to see who can be the first to get the answer (selected from four options) or just play against the clock.

With the ability to easily add your own question modules, this is good all-round family entertainment.

Stone Raider II (Boulderdash Clone) 128K
Review: QL World Feb'87, Micro Mart March 2004 (8/10)

This is a very colourful implementation of a Boulderdash game, popular with younger users.  You play the part of a miner, trying to collect all of the hexogems from around an abandoned mine.  However, there are various obstacles in your way which will try to kill you - not only are you racing against time, but you also have to deal with falling rocks, JCB diggers, toxic waste and mutant creatures.

With 32 large multi-scrolling screens, this should keep everyone entertained for quite some time.

This is a very colourful game where you play the role of an explorer looking for lost treasure inside the Pharaoh's tomb.  You need to acquire keys to open gates and there are hidden tunnels - you can enter the green tunnels, but beware the blue ones out of which all manner of dangerous insects and snakes appear.

Pengi 128K

(Back by popular request)

In this colourful game, you control a small Penguin (Pengi) as he tries to survive the antarctic climate, trapped inside a maze of ice blocks which is surrounded by an electric fence.  Faced with deadly snobees all around, the only way to survive is by pushing ice blocks onto the snobees and squashing them, before they touch Pengi.  You can also collect diamonds to gain additional points.

Blocks can also be removed by crushing them against another block, thus allowing you to make new paths and tunnels in the maze.

Hoverzone (Defender Clone) 128K
Review: QL World Jan'88, Micro Mart March 2004 (8/10)

This is a fast and furious implementation of a popular old arcade game.  You control a space ship flying around the surface of a planet, as hoardes of invading aliens attempt to reach the surface and pick up the inhabitants of the planet.  You have to shoot the aliens, before they get back to their mothership with the people which they capture and use them to mutate into even more deadly aliens. With lots of levels and plenty of action, this should provide hours of fun.

Not currently QPC or Q40 SMSQ/E  compatible, but PC, Mac and UNIX users can use either the Shareware QeMulator QL emulator or the public domain QLAY /QL2K emulators to run this. More details. Q40 users can use Classic QDOS to run this program.

Deathstrike (Scramble Clone) 128K

This could be seen as the follow-up to Hoverzone. Written by Damon Chaplin, this is yet another fast and furious arcade game, based on "Scramble".  Here you are flying through a tight network of underground caverns, trying to find and destroy the alien base and their mothership. The caverns are defended by radar controlled missiles and alien spaceships. Can you survive the maze and reach the end?  Lots of colour, and lots of fun.

E.V.A by Westway 128K

In some ways, this is the Sinclair QL equivalent of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum classic Jet Pac game.  You take the role of Herdemar Greech, space station repairer, who must move around the outside of your space station whilst it is under attack and build new pieces of equipment from the parts as they fall from above.

Having finished construction, use the teleport to move to the next level where even more deadly aliens are awaiting!

Microdeal Flight Simulator (Training Plane Flight Simulator)

This was the earliest flight simulator for the Sinclair QL. It was designed by an aeronautical engineer and is based on a single engined light training aircraft (the SAH1 by Trago Mills).  With 9 different worlds to fly around and the ability to set up weather and wind conditions, this provided an excellent training tool for use on the QL.

The view is from the cockpit, with wire-framed 3d views of the world outside the window, radar view, and all the standard controls which you would expect.

Review: QL World V2 Iss 12, QL World Dec 89

This is no simple flight simulator for the QL. It is based on a twin engined passenger jet flying around a 'world' of various airports and landscape features. The worlds can be edited and changed to suit your own flying skills as you progress.

The view is from the cockpit, with shaded 3d views of the world outside the window, with VHF omni-directional range and distance equipment, automatic direction finding and an instrument landing system to aid you in your flight, just like a real pilot!

Microdeal's QL Hopper

QL Hopper is a good implementation of the classic arcade game Frogger, where the aim of the game is to guide 5 frogs into their individual homes, which are situated across the other side of a busy motorway and a fast flowing river.  Dodge the cars and trucks on the motorway, but use the logs and lily pads on the river as stepping stones to help you across.

The different speeds of each obstacle makes the game more difficult to judge - highly addictive and rewarding when you do manage to get the frogs into their homes.

Microdeal's The King

The King is a good implementation of the classic arcade game Donkey Kong, where the aim of the game is to climb to the top of the ladders and platforms to rescue the damsel in distress who is guarded by King Kong.

King Kong is throwing barrels at you to stop you in your rescue mission, although you can smash them with a mallet.  In this version, if any barrels reach the oil in the bottom left, they turn into a green monster that works its way back up the ladders to kill you.

Microdeal's Crazy Painter

A novel arcade game where you have to paint the QL screen using as little paint as possible.

Dip your paint brush into one of the tins at the bottom left corner of the screen and away you go.

Various things which get in the way - a big dog that leaves paw prints all over your new paintwork, a rival painter that will dump an old tin of paint on the screen, a spider and more make it more difficult for you.

Eight levels and a challenge game where you have to use your scraper to stop the paint dripping off the screen.

Microdeal's Cuthbert in Space

This is a fast and colourful arcade game which is reminiscent of Jet Set Willy.

You are flying a large spaceship from world to world seeking treasure and resources. Having landed, each planet has two phases - in the first, you need to fly a small shuttle about the screen to collect the fuel cells which appear on various platforms and the treasure which falls down from above. Your journey is made more hazardous by the flying alien spaceships trying to protect their planet's resources. Luckily your laser cannon will destroy the aliens.

Two levels of play make the game addictive.

Microdeal's Lands of Havoc

Lands of Havoc is a large graphical arcade adventure, where you have to explore a large maze made of 2000 screens, in order to collect items which will open up new levels.

Your task is to explore the Lands of Havoc, and collect various items (starting with the Book of Change) which can be used to defeat the Dark Lords. As you collect each item, a cryptic message tells you where you need to travel to next on your quest.

Each level is cut into different areas (for example, the desert, the swamp, the forest, wild wood, village, castles, graveyard, the jungle and the mystics).

The action is fast and furious as you move around the screen, avoiding (or shooting) various monsters intent on stopping you in your quest. There are hidden ways of zapping instantly between locations, which can help.

It can be controlled from the keyboard or joystick, and has sound effects for when your tyres screech on the sides of the track, all with 3D perspective graphics.
