Pete Cooke

Pete Cooke achieved wide recognition as one of the most accomplished Spectrum games programmers of the 1980s, producing a string of critically acclaimed games.

Cooke cut his teeth with adventure games before graduating to arcade / simulation games. His first big hit came in 1985 with Tau Ceti, a first-person 3D shoot-em-up which is still an impressive game, as is its sequel Academy. Both were converted onto a variety of other formats, including the 16-bit machines and PC. With Micronaut One in 1987, Cooke created possibly the most visually impressive 3D game seen on the Spectrum.
