Welcome to THE CRONOSOFT SHOP

            

CRONOSOFT - PROVIDING NEW SOFTWARE FOR OLD MICROS SINCE 2002
__________________________



EU BUYERS - VERY IMPORTANT -     PLEASE READ!

After a considerable amount of time for which I apologise, I am trying to resume sales to EU countries again.  I have had many problems with items delayed or returned to me over the last year or so because of Brexit.  I am now trying to ship to the EU countries again as an experiment. If it goes well, then I will continue, but if not, then I will need to stop again.   

Anyone buying, PLEASE expect that there are likely to be customs charges imposed by your country that will need to be paid to your country's customs, before the item is released to you. If this is not paid, the item will likely be returned.  If this happens, I will refund your payment, less the shipping charge.  As a registered business, I must declare the item on the customs label as 'sale of goods' and not a gift, and to the full value of the purchase price. Often, this is the reason that goods are returned.   Also, any sales of more than one cassette will need to be sent by tracked airmail.   I know this is more expensive, but as a
not-for-profit organisation, I cannot afford to lose packages.       Thanks, Simon @ Cronosoft.

SPECTRUM 40, Walsall
30th April & 4 new game releases...
Thanks to everyone who came to see us at our stall at SPECTRUM 40 in Walsall at the weekend. We got to talk to loads of you and met some great people, including Kevin Toms, Rich Stevenson, Simon Brattel, Sandy White and many more. 

If you were also there, you may have spotted FOUR new game releases that are now available.
     
First up, we have CURSED CATACOMBS from Walter Ariel Risi, a great new title for the 16K ZX81.
Secondly, our first dual format "Flippy" game, THE MANDARIN,
a split format arcade game for the
Spectrum and Amstrad CPC, from Mananuk
Thirdly, EGGHEAD GOES TO TOWN is the latest installment of Jonathan Cauldwell's classic Egghead series. This was made in 2017, and it's finally out on the Cronosoft label.
and last but not least, Jonathan Cauldwell's ENCYCLOPAEDIA GALACTICA - an epic space arcade adventure.  Please note - this game is not compatible with the later +2A/+2B/+3 models of 128K Spectrum.
All cassettes are £7.00 each, and come with an emulator version too, though if you want just the emulator versions, you can get them here



SPECTRUM 40th BIRTHDAY
Today is the 40th birthday of the ZX Spectrum, that machine that links us all
It is a bittersweet announcement, but we're releasing a new game, THE 8-BIT WARS

as a tribute to both the ZX Spectrum, and to Andy Remic, who we sadly lost earlier this year. This was one of the last projects that Andy worked on with the superbly talented programmer Luca Bordoni.   You can find out more information here.  What better tribute to this great guy, who achieved so much, that we release this spectacular game on the 40th birthday of the machine he loved.
All proceeds from the sale of the cassette will go to Andy's family.



GET THE CASSETTE VERSION HERE
EMULATOR (DIGITAL) VERSIONS ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR MOST TITLES ON THE SINCLAIR MACHINES


Digital versions of nearly all ZX81 and Spectrum games are now available to buy if you don't require the cassette tapes, or live in the EU, where shipping has become very difficult.  For a reduced price of £1.99 (unless specified for certain releases), you'll get the file for emulator (.TAP/.TZX/.P for example), along with a copy of the artwork for the inlay, so you can print it yourself!   I'll endeavour to make sure that the emulator versions are sent out by email as soon as I spot them after the order comes in - please allow up to 48 hours, but likely much less than that.


ANDY REMIC
1971 - 2022
A tribute to a great person

ZX81 41st BIRTHDAY RELEASE
ABDUXION AND ZEDIPEDE

2 - in - 1 pack

ANEWS:   11/2/2022     SHIPPING TO EU COUNTRIES  


It is with regret that I can no longer ship to EU ZONE countries.  I have found that I am losing money due to items that have customs charges being rejected by buyers, items going missing and other problems.   

I am really sorry to my many loyal EU buyers, but as a not-for-profit software house, I have lost several £20+ orders, including some charity releases that I now have to refund out of my own pocket, as I've paid the charity already.   

Some items sometimes get returned to me after customs charges are not paid by the buyer, but this can be months later.  Also some buyers (who don't want to wait) just initiate a Paypal chargeback. I just can't afford these losses any more, so had to take the decision to stop.   

Other non-EU zone countries like Iceland, Norway, Switzerland etc., and worldwide sales are not affected.

Apologies again. I did not vote to leave the EU, and urged as many people as possible not to, as I anticipated this happening.

As of today, 11/2/2022, all future EU Zone orders will be refunded.    In the future I may open up sale again soon to the EU, but it will be via EBAY and the tracked Global Shipping Program. This way it does not get held up in customs for many weeks and taxes are paid in advance. I'm sorry that it is more expensive this way.
