The TZX tape dumps of 10 Computer Hits 5 are already in the database, therefore I don't see a reason not to include the +3 DSK disk dumps as well.

Run Baby Run

Original publisher should be Micro Gold as mentioned here, and the price was £2.75.
I'm not sure about this one.

The article from December 1983 says "it will be retailing its first releases, two Spectrum games called Race Ace and Run, Baby, Run, at £2.75".

It sounds it was just their plan. There's no confirmation that's how it really happened in the end.

I recently added Legends Of Bytes to ZXDB. This magazine is an excellent source of information about Speccy game authors! Someone fluent in Russian should be able to obtain lots of useful information still missing from our database.

It's currently published by a guy called Gennadiy. If someone has his contact information and could invite him to our forum, I bet he would enjoy participating in this thread :)
I noticed a printing mistake in this magazine: David Taylor's nickname is "Tink", not "Pink".

Except for this, everything else seem very accurate!

Publishers Michael Orwin, M. Orwin and Orwin Software (UK) are the same person. Please can they be merged? I had the Spectrum Michael Orwin tapes when I was much younger. Wish I had kept some as they are MIA.

Evidence to back up change request:

Yes, please add them :-) Main reason is that we only have the main title registered when we linked to zx81stuff site. I've already aligned with @Einar Saukas on how to add the content for those compilations, by adding each title separately - something that is on my current work list.

Centipoid Plus 3 should maybe become genre 'Compilation', rather than 'Arcade Game: Action' as it was four titles on one tape:

Don't know if this is the right place but here goes.

The Spanish version of Sam Mallard currently in the database is 1.1 however the latest one is 1.11. The game can be downloaded from the link in my signature.

Also the game 'Elite' doesn't have an "Can be edited with" entry for 'Mostly Harmless – an Elite Save Game Editor'. Likewise 'Mostly Harmless' hasn't got "An editor for: Elite" entry.
