The above list includes games gamma-released by their authors (made available to the general public as finished products). If you know of a game which is not included in the list, please let me know.

The list is an updated, somewhat modified version of the list of MM and JSW games developed by Dr. Andrew Broad. The last update of his list took place on 28 May 2009. While Dr. Broad's website is currently offline, that last version of his list is currently available here.

The JSW Central list of MM and JSW games preserves the general layout devised by Dr. Broad. The games are listed in the order in which they were first gamma-released. In the case that a game was reissued (as a bug-fix or a special edition or a further-development version), it retains its position in the list and a revision descriptor is appended with the year(s) of reissue(s) and the reissue name(s) (if pertinent).

A game may appear in more than one category if it has versions using various game engines.

The following type descriptors have been used in the list:

JSW48 games:

• Geoff Mode I: based on the game engine introduced by Geoff Eddy's J4 (The Fourth Remix);

• Geoff Mode II: based on the game engine introduced by Geoff Eddy's ZX Willy the Bug Slayer;

• Erix1 Mode: based on the game-engine introduced by Vidar Eriksen's Maria vs. Some Bastards;

JSW128 games:

• HLn: based on JSW128 Hacklevel n;

• JSW64:HLn;v where v is a subset of {V,W,X,Y,Z,[}: based on JSW64 Hacklevel n, Variant v (where n and v are independent of each other).

As this website develops, there will be links to individual pages dedicated to each of the games included in the list.
