About BeebEm

The first "BeebEm" software (called Beeb Emulator) was created for the UNIX-based systems and was developed by David Gilbert in 1994. Since then, many developers have improved the emulator and have given it its new name. Mike Wyatt was most notable for maintaining the emulator and its website and developing it for the Windows operating system. Other developers have also ported the emulator to the Mac OS X, and Pocket PC platforms.


The BeebEm emulator for the Windows operating system is able to run most BBC Micro software/ games including popular titles like Elite, Exile, and Revs. This program can also run most BBC Micro ROM software like Wordwise, along with anything released on Superior Software/Acornsoft label.
