Year: 1984
Developer: Tynesoft Computer Software

Auf Wiedersehen, Pet is based on the then-famous show about a group of British construction workers getting a temporary job in West Germany. The game is split up into three single screen stages representing a day from Leonard "Oz" Osborne's life. The first has him laying bricks while avoiding heads and falling trowels in attempt to build a wall as high and wide as possible. Oz always walks blindly regardless of what obstacles are ahead, so you have to move him around to dodge them. After that, Oz takes a break by going into a local bar and getting drunk. Now, it's time to go home, but as the night approaches, street lamps go out, making it harder to navigate. Even worse, an officer and several police cars appear and also block your way. You must memorize where each object is and move up without bumping into anything. The game repeats all over from the beginning each time it's finished, although the gained points don't reset.

Bob Carr ported one of the show's scores onto the Spectrum, though only a segment of it and rather loosely. He also spelled six sentences and accentuations that an optionally plugged-in Currah MicroSpeech synthesizes as follows:

  • "Tynesoft presents Auf Wiedersehen Pet" (after loading)
  • "by Bob Carr" (instructions prompt)
  • "Z for left, X for right, O for up, K for down" (instructions page 5)
  • "You lose" (scenes 2 and 3)
  • "Now go home" (scene 3)
  • "Well done" (scene 3)
