Non-Official Companion Discs
Mainly publishes: Arcade Games
Best Known Game: Wall Destroyer
Number of titles released by this publisher: 50
Number of titles currently available: 48
Archive Status: Incomplete

There are numerous games, and utilities, hiding in the pages of Home Computing Weekly, a newspaper-styled magazine which was published weekly in the early Eighties. Scans of almost all of the issues, in full, are available in the HCW Scans section, but we have also made a start in bringing some of the games to you. These are available to download below.

At the bottom of this article, you will also find a 'look-up' table which will direct you to the particular magazine and page where all programs not currently available can be found (if you wish to type them in yourself). However, this is only temporary and we do hope to bring you all a full archive of HCW companion discs in the fullness of time.
