Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mike Singleton (born 1951) is a British author and video game developer who wrote various well-regarded titles for the ZX Spectrum during the 1980s.

Before developing video games, Singleton was an English teacher in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, England. Singleton originally started programming in 1980, teaching himself BASIC on the Commodore PET, and writing Computer Race, a horse racing game he designed for a betting shop. Moving on from this, he began working on arcade games for the Pet, working with PetSoft, where he wrote Space Ace entirely in 6502 machine code.show more
