Magic Bytes started as brand of micro-partner, founded by Thomas Meiertoberens in Germany. It was first introduced in 1987 for the European computer game releases of ‘Western Games’ and 'Clever & Smart'. After signing licensing agreements for well-known comic-characters such as ‘Tom & Jerry’ and ‘Pink Panther’, Magic Bytes quickly became a popular brand for home computer games, particularly in Europe, Scandinavia and Australia. Some of its products became award-winning releases, featuring high rankings near the top of the charts.
Most of its games were developed for Commodore Amiga & C64, Atari ST and Amstrad CPC, later also for PC's. A few titles were adapted for MSX and ZX Spectrum. In 1989, Magic Bytes developed, together with book publisher Falkenverlag its first educational title ‘Wall$treet’.
