All Cascoly Shareware programs run on the IBM PC family of machines.

ANTIC -- AntiC is a cross between Othello and Life. The object is to change
all the squares in the pattern to the same color using the fewest number of
transformations. Anti-Chaos networks are formed from squares connected to
each other by directional lines. Each square is one of 3 colors and sends
its color to the following squares in the network. If only one color comes
into a square, it takes that color. If two colors come in, they cancel and
the square assumes the third color. Each time you change a square, all the
colors are recalculated and redrawn. Ages 8 and up. Mouse/ EGA $20

WEBS is a deceptively simple solitaire game requiring both strategy and
cunning. You claim nodes on a web while trying to limit the nodes claimed
to your computer opponent. Automatic display of potential moves, a variety
of webs and difficulties give hours of challenge. NEW IN V1.1: Web maker
feature included. Registered users are eligible to enter a cash prize
contest. Ages 8 and up. Requires mouse/EGA. $20

ATC -- An air traffic controller game that's perfect for a few minutes or
hours of fun. Easy to learn, but difficult to master. The game tracks best
scores at each of 20 levels of difficulty. Ages 10 and up. (Supports
monochrome or color) $20

BORDER -- a cross between GO and connect the dots, this abstract strategy
game for 2 players involves enclosing more area than your opponent, while
preventing them from stopping you. Ages 12 and up. CGA/EGA $20

ECOMASTER -- A diverting ecology game for one or more players in which you
bid for and trade animals based on their abilities to thrive in different
environments. No previous biological experience is assumed. For 1 or more
players. Typical games last less than an hour. For ages 10 and up. $20

FICTIONARY -- The game of fantastic and farfetched definitions. Each
round one player chooses a word that no other player knows. You can choose
your own word or pick one from the large selection included with the game.
Then each other player makes up their own definition for the word. Everyone
votes for what they think is the correct definition. Points are scored for
guessing the proper one, or misleading other players. Special rules allow
play by 2 or even 1 player. Ages 12 and up. V 1.32 $20

QUILT is a diverting graphics program that derives from half square quilting
patterns. You can create specific patterns or set the program on sequential
mode for continuously changing patterns. Change widths, patterns, rotate or
flip the designs, or colors for "billions and billions" of combinations.
Full EGA and VGA support, with configurable color palettes chosen from 64
possible colors. EGA or VGA req. Ages 8 to 88. $20

CAPBUF is a memory resident (TSR) program that lets you capture any text
screen and save it for later processing or printing. It is quite useful for
programs that do not otherwise provide means of printing their results. Use
it for intermediate results of games, or collecting copies of messages while
on a bulletin board. (mono or graphics) $30


APPLICATIONS:

UDECIDE helps you make decisions such as which software or hardware to
purchase; ratings surveys; which project to pursue; ranking; or selecting
colleges, movies, stocks, or wines. You enter a list of elements by which
you will evaluate the contenders, optionally giving each a weight. Then you
enter the possible options, and assign a value to each element. You can
then sort to obtain an ordered list of the best options. Or you can perform
what-if analyses by changing elements or weights.
(mono or graphics) V 1.04 $30

CHRONOS
How old was Paul Revere when he rode into history? How many years separated
Michelangelo and Cortez? With CHRONOS, you can sort and select by
individual people and events, or groups and factions, to develop new
insights and trace patterns across different eras and cultures. CHRONOS is
used by history and art students, genealogists, teachers, writers and others
interested in exploring historical relations or cultural events.

CHRONOS comes with several datasets, which you can modify or add to. Or you
can design your own. Registered users will receive the current program
along with several additional datasets, such as CINEMA and 20th century.
(mono or graphics) V 2.02 $30

In additional you might be interested in the following games I've designed
for interactive, multiplayer use on CompuServe:

ATC -- multiplayer version
SNIPER! based on the TSR, Inc game, you command a squad of infantry in
wartorn Europe.

Shareware is a means of distributing software. Under the shareware concept,
software may be freely copied and passed along to others, or distributed
through bulletin board systems or national networks.

As a recipient of a shareware program, you may use the software for a short
trial period to determine if it meets your needs. If the software is not
suitable, then you can discard it. If you decide to use it, you should
register it. When you register you will receive the latest copy of the
program, plus one or more bonus programs. Registration also entitles you to
online support via CompuServe. Send email to Cascoly Software, CompuServe
number 76703,3046. (We will also answer mail from registered users.)

As an additional benefit, registration entitles you to a free introductory
account on CompuServe. (Details of this offer, which includes free connect
time, will be sent when you register.)

Cascoly Software is a member of the Association of Shareware Professionals
(ASP). ASP wants to make sure that the shareware principle works for you.
If you are unable to resolve a shareware-related problem with an ASP member
by contacting the member directly, ASP may be able to help. The ASP
Ombudsman can help you resolve a dispute or problem with an ASP member, but
does not provide technical support for members' products. Please write to
the ASP Ombudsman at P.O. Box 5786, Bellevue, WA 98006 or send a Compuserve
message via easyplex to ASP Ombudsman 70007,3536 .

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
