The SAM Coupé was an 8-bit computer launched in 1989, a time where 16-bit computers were already on the rise. Even so, it was a powerful machine that rivaled some performance and features of 16-bit systems and was intended to be an affordable step between the two generations.
Sadly, slow sales for the system prevented many companies from wanting to make official software ports for it, and it became a commercial failure. However, there was an extremely dedicated fanbase that kept the charming SAM Coupé alive for years past its discontinuation, mostly in the form of independent applications, games, and magazines on disk.
Special items included: Games not in English (but only if they are easy enough to play without being fluent in another language), unreleased titles, the Adventurer game creation system, demos that never saw a full release, the Explosion ZX Spectrum Emulator and games package, ZX81 Spectrum emulator with several games, Games Master, extra level packs for various titles, the SAM Adventure System, SCADS game creation system with add-ons, three collections of direct Spectrum game conversions, and popular magazine disks (if they included games on them).
Items removed: Non-working dumps, duplicates, games not in English that require proficiency in another language to play, and homebrew titles past the 10 year mark after launch (1999).
Please note: While there are no exact duplicates, there are some compilation or magazine disks that contain some games that are also presented in singular form due to the fact that there are different versions available between them. Regardless, the total amount of games and the alphabetical list below treats each game as if it were only included once.
