The BBC Microcomputer System, or BBC Micro, was a series of microcomputers and associated peripherals designed and built by Acorn Computers Ltd for the "BBC Computer Literacy Project" operated by the British Broadcasting Corporation.

Brief Overview of the ComputerEdit

Designed with an emphasis on education it was notable for its ruggedness, expandability and the quality of its operating system. Having won the Literacy Project tender as the "Acorn Proton", the BBC Micro became a cornerstone of computing in British education in the 1980s, being chosen by most schools and changing Acorn's fortunes. It was also moderately successful as a home computer in the United Kingdom despite its high cost. The machine was directly involved in the development of the ARM architecture which sees widespread use in embedded systems as of 2007.

While twelve models were eventually produced in the range, the term "BBC Micro" is often colloquially used to refer to the first four (Model A, B, B+64 and B+128), with the later eight models referred to as the BBC Master and Archimedes series.

Fighting Fantasy ConversionsEdit

All conversions for this platform were by the publisher Adventure Soft (UK). They were text only versions, with no graphics.[1]
