I'm currently missing Mac (coming).

Awesome!

Q*Bert would be a fun one, here's a pic from the National Videogame Museum (supposedly running it on hardware?): https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Clgi58uUsAAnu3c.jpg

there's a zx spectrum bard's tale too, not in the softlist, because doing a full speccy softlist is an undertaking for somebody crazier than I, but it exists.

also on the c64 apparently.

Thanks, Haze! I've added Amiga and ZX Spectrum screens to the initial post.

Stiletto: I think we can reproduce that entire grid from softlists smile I'll give that a shot later.

The best Q*Bert conversion for the BBC was Bouncer:
mame bbcb -fdc acorn1770 -flop1 bbcb_flop_orig:bouncer
To boot floppy hold SHIFT and press/depress F12 (BREAK)

Here's the 9801 Bard's Tale. The boot sector on the floppy seems corrupt somehow so you have to boot dos first then run menu.exe from the disk. Getting beyond this requires a char disk.

A retrogaming enthusiast "magazine" called "Retrogaming Times" used to do a monthly article called "The Many Faces Of..." which should give you a few targets:

Thanks Carl! Just the title screen is fine.

Pernod: I was just trying to reproduce the museum board Stiletto linked, but I'll go back and add more Qberts later. Thanks!
