LATEST NEWS:   18/07/2021

So sad to hear the news of the passing of Jason Kelk, games programmer TMR from Cosine, and Retro Gamer journalist, after a monumental 14+ month hospital struggle against COVID19.

Although I never actually got to meet him in person, he was invaluable at the start of Cronosoft, encouraging, supporting and supplying us with our first non-Sinclair games, with him being the creator of many of our games releases in the very early (and later days), such as Cyber Wing, Warflame, Reaxion, Lunar Blitz, ViColumn etc., across multiple formats, including the Commodore 64, Vic 20 and C16/Plus 4.
His games live on, and he made a massive mark on the world. Our thoughts are with his family. RIP.

Welcome to Cronosoft ...  Specialists in brand new software on cassette for 8-bit computers since 2002. We have probably the largest back catalogue in Europe of new games for old systems in our portfolio, and we're a not-for-profit software label.  Nobody at Cronosoft takes any payment or wages, and everything is done solely for the love of old machines.  You can buy brand new software on cassette for your Spectrum, Commodore 64, Vic 20, ZX80, ZX81, Amstrad CPC, Commodore 16/+4, Mattel Aquarius and Dragon 32/Coco from us, and in doing so, you're helping to keep these machines alive. 

We have been featured regularly in RETRO GAMER magazine, with a 6 page special in issue 166, as well as oftenmentioned on the BBC, and in THE GUARDIAN and INDEPENDENT newspapers.  We also feature in Andy Remic's film MEMOIRS OF A SPECTRUM ADDICT, and it's sequel SPECTRUM ADDICT: LOAD "FILM 2"


Have you written a new game?  We would like to see it.   Maybe you wrote a great game back in the day, and would like to see it published again?    We'd love to do that for you if we can.

2021:  16/3/2021

Apologies, but I've had to tweak the cost of shipping for outside of Europe countries. The USA's USPS introduced a charge to other countries' postal services for handling parcels to the US, so the UK Royal Mail introduced a new 'ZONE 3', making the USA the most expensive place to ship an item to from the UK.  I'm sorry for having to increase the shipping costs for larger chunkier packages that I can't send as a 'large letter' rate (which is anything above 6 cassettes), but I've reduced the shipping costs where there are 6 cassettes or less. Unbelievably, to send 6 cassettes stacked side by side horizontally within a 2.5cm parcel is £8.00 cheaper to send as a letter than as a larger package where they're stacked vertically. Bizarre!

Happy 40th Anniversary ZX81!  Lots of new ZX81 releases to look forward to in the coming year :)


Cronosoft is open for business as usual, but unfortunately, due to customs and other delays relating to Brexit, as well as delays caused by backlogs relating to COVID-19, mails is taking much longer than usual, particularly international mail.  For example, EU mail is taking around 3-4 weeks, rather than the 3-7 days it would originally have taken.   I'm sorry about this, but the situation is beyond our control, so please allow lots of extra time for orders to arrive.  We recommend that overseas European buyers limited orders to 1 or 2 cassettes at a time to reduce the risk of unforseen customs charges.   


Newly released games, and restocks of older titles have now had a price increase to £6.00 - Reluctantly, I've had to do this as the *very* few suppliers of blank tapes have had quite a substantial price increase over the past few years. When we started back in 2002, we could obtain inexpensive tapes from suppliers clearing out old stocks. However, whilst there is a resurgence in interest in cassettes, there number of suppliers seems to have dwindled, thus vastly increasing the price from the companies that still stock them.  I hope you agree that £6.00 is still a decent price, and probably what you might have paid back in 1983.
