I DO (Acornsoft/Ivan Berg) Loading Screeen - Only Available On Disc Image
I DO (Acornsoft/Ivan Berg) - Game Screenshot


A big box package featuring a suite of programs designed to tell if you, and your current partner, will get along if you take the big step towards either living together or getting married. A range of scales designed to measure specific character traits, including masculinity and femininity, which were designed in the 1980's and provide some fascinating social comment now.

Released by Acornsoft/Ivan Berg

Dragon 32 Universe - Archiving The Green Screened Dragon

Dragon 32 Universe, established 2012, is our attempt to build another Acorn Electron World - for the Dragon 32. Featuring a shop, screenshots, videos and information on Dragon 32 games, we also sell a DVD similar to the AEW one, containing all the games we've currently archived for this little-known computer.


Acorn Electron World is organised into distinct sections, to make it as easy as possible for you to explore all of it and locate any resource you require.


  1. Media
    1. Professional Releases (UK)

    2. Public Domain Releases
      Features all of that software written by home-coders and originally available from the PD libraries circa 1988-1995. All of this software is exclusively disc-based
    3. Companion Discs
      Features the code to accompany books and programs in the Books and Magazines archives - so that if you want to play a game originally supplied as a type-in, you don't need to type it in again. All of this software is exclusively disc-based
    4. Electron User Group (EUG) Discs
