Professional Releases


A selection of screenshots from surviving Colour Genie games

Welcome to the Professional Releases library for the Colour Genie. To the left is a navigation bar which allows you to find anything ever professionally released (as long as you know which software publisher it was released by). Summary information is presented on every game, and a number of icons appear to denote downloads that are available on the Colour Genie World DVD. If a game is known to exist, it will also be present within this section.

The icons in each "box" of the catalogue will, on the DVD, direct you to huge archives of further information such as cheats, instructions or reviews.

The comprehensive key to the icons, and what they mean, is as follows:


Information Icon
This icon means full playing instructions and game controls are archived for that release. These are present on the DVD, but are not present on the web site
Movie Icon
This icon will redirect you to YouTube where a video of the game in action will be played to you. This works on both the DVD and the web site
Chewing Gum Review Icon
This icon means the release was reviewed by Chewing Gum at the time it was released. All Chewing Gum reviews have been OCR'd and are present on the DVD, but are not present on the web site
Micro Mart Review Icon
This icon means the release was reviewed by Micro Mart. All Micro Mart reviews have been OCR'd and are present on the DVD, but are not present on the web site
Personal Computer News Review Icon
This icon means the release was reviewed by Personal Computer News. All Personal Computer News reviews have been OCR'd and are present on the DVD, but are not present on the web site
Solution Icon
This icon means, mainly for Text Adventures, that one (or more) full solutions are archived for that title. These are present on the DVD, but not present on the web site
Tape Icon
This icon means that the original tape version of the game is available to download. The tapes are available on both the DVD and the web site


Sadly, a great deal (roughly half) of Colour Genie software that we know to have been professionally released will probably never be found. However, this site contains everything that we have been able to find so far, coupled with its instructions, user guide, cover art, reviews and screenshots. We have also added its tape images to the DVD.

The archiving of the majority of the Colour Genie English games was completed by Dave E. The archiving of the Colour Genie German games was done by "persons unknown".
