Apple 2 and Amstrad CPC commercial games done in BASIC

(repost)
By messing around i found out that a few Apple II games which were later ported (or not) to other systems were made in BASIC (and can be extracted from their respective disks), the gfx & music aren't exactly stellar quality of course, but the games engines remain essentially the same and could be used to port /improve
these games, make editors or anything else.

3D Docking Mission.
Accounts Receivable (Tool).
Advanced Blackjack.
Adventure.
AdventureLand.
Akalabeth.
Alien.
Alter Ego.
Andromeda Conquest.
Armageddon.
Battlecruiser I.
Battlecruiser II.
Battle For Normandy.
Bronze Dragon.
Bronze Dragon Side II.
Cartels & Cutthroats.
Conglomerates Collide.
Crypt.
Demon's Forge.
Demon's Winter.
Dungeon Campaign - Wilderness Campaign.
Dreadnoughts.
Epidemic.
Fortress.
Galactic Adventures.
Galactic Empire.
Germ Lab.
GoldFields.
La Cite Perdue (fr).
Nuke War.
Phantasie I.
Phantasie II.
Phantasie III.
Pirates!
Planetary Construction Set.
Questron.
Ring Quest.
Roadwar 2000.
Roadwar Europa.
Sands Of Mars.
Shard Of Spring.
Shattered Alliance.
Space Vikings.
Starship Commander.
Star Warrior - Starquest.
The Adventure - Only the fittest shall survive.
The Infiltrator (Asm source).
The Standing Stones.
Tigers In The Snow.
Transylvania I.
Transylvania II.

Ultima I (California Pacific Computer version).

Warp Factor.
Warship.

Also some Amstrad CPC games were also made in BASIC (in French unfortunately):

L'Affaire Sidney.
L'Affaire Vera Cruz (Available in English).
Faial.
Harry & Harry - La boite de Rajmahal.
Harry & Harry - Mission Torpedo.
Incantation.
La cité perdue.
La secte noire.
Les Griffes De La Nuit.
Les Templiers d'Orven.
Meurtres En Serie (ported on ST).
Meurtre A Grande Vitesse.
Saga.
SDAW.
Survivre.
Tyrann.
Une Affaire En Or.
Warrior & Warrior +.

I didn't investigate more but there's surely more of them on these machines or on other 8 bit (MSX, Thomson, etc.).

Download "CiderPress" from http://a2ciderpress.com/
in order to extract the .dsk files from the Apple 2

Download "ManageDsk v0.20h" from http://cpcrulez.fr/emulateurs_UTIL-DSK-manageDSK.htm
in order to extract the .dsk files from the Amstrad CPC.

EDIT: Added "Meurtre A Grande Vitesse".
EDIT: fixed download link for ManageDsk.

I forgot, i made 2 Ruby scripts to ease the Apple 2 games extraction process.

Ruby script to convert Applesoft BASIC to ASCII:

And another Ruby script to convert AppleSCII to standard ASCII:
