    I just thought I'd post here for anyone ont the forums/internet that may be interested, because there is practically no information on this game at all out there. After setting up and testing my BBC Micros, I was able to find the old disk that contained ANDROID. It looks like the program was either part of a demo disk or else one of those programs you typed in by hand from a magazine.


    I'll post more information and perhaps even a screenshot tomorrow.


    EDIT: The following text is a copy of the instructions for the game:

    You control Transport Android, who is faced with a maze, containing the six eggs that must be transported from the top of the screen to the bottom, so he can escape. But the Mazedroids are out to stop him as they roam about the screen in ever increasing numbers.


    You must move the eggs within the bonus limit shown at the top of the screen. You have three lives, and a bonus life after passing screen five.


    When you have an egg you go yellow, otherwise you are cyan.

    Does this thing work now?

    Looks like it might be fun to try this.

    But only if it is now a solid, working actual emu.  If so, linky, plz.
