Friendlyware was a set of 30 computer programs that were written in BASIC and bundled with certain IBM personal computers. They were a collection of business, gaming and personal analysis software that pushed the power of BASIC to the maximum. Friendlyware was published in 1983 by a company called Friendlysoft. Friendlyware was one of the first pieces of software to have implemented a boss key. There were several releases of Friendlyware. The original "demo" copy came on a 5.25" floppy with a green label. The demo copy (Friendlyware I) had one arcade game (Brick Out) and other "family" software, including strategy games like Reversi. The Friendlyware Arcade pack came on a floppy with a red label, and contained eight additional arcade style games reminiscent of the early 1980s. The BusinessWare release came with a blue label, and contained simple business software.
