Mr. Ee!, BBC Micro

When Mr. Ee! was released way back in 1984 the games industry was a bit like the Wild West – everybody cloned everyone else’s games and no one gave a sh*t. It wasn’t until later that official licenses and lawsuits for similarities became a thing.

Which is why Mr. Ee! is an almost perfect clone of the arcade game Mr. Do! and was marketed as such back in 1984. Because they could get away with it…

In the early Eighties clones of famous arcade games were all the rage and every software house was making them for every home format. It was rare, though, for them to get the conversion absolutely right. Adrian Stephens did a sterling job translating Mr. Do! to the Beeb though.
