  • Regarding the “Booter” nomenclature – the Amstrad PC1512 that was our family’s first PC came with 3 such games (at least the edition we had) – Bruce Lee, PSI-5 Trading Company and Tag Team Wrestling. They were described in the documentation as “Turnkey programs”. I have no idea if that term was common – I haven’t seen it anywhere else.

    Btw, Tag Team Wrestling had its own DOS (QDOS) and only used one side – the other side could be accessed by putting the disk in upside down (despite the machine having dual sided drives) and contained Dambusters (as a DOS program, not a booter).
