Eddie Edward’s Super Ski

October 11, 2019 AtariCrypt

So far, my Super Pack adventure has been very strong with some huge titles: Arkanoid II Revenge of Doh, Beyond the Ice Palace, Black Lamp and Buggy Boy. All are searchable right here and all are sweet Atari ST classics. However, there’s always an exception and it was Chopper X. …

Chopper X is a vertically-scrolling shoot ’em up released in 1989 by Paradox that places us in the seat of an Assault Helicopter which is armed with Viper Air To Ground missiles to battle against hoards of bad guys. The blurb says this pushes the ST with its stunning graphics …

After the joy of Arkanoid 2, we continue our trip through Super Pack land with Beyond the Ice Palace and Black Lamp. However, both are already featured right here on AtariCrypt [click their links] so let’s move onwards to another ST favourite of mine, Buggy Boy!! Now, those with a …

Arkanoid – Revenge of Doh

September 15, 2019 AtariCrypt

It’s time to kickstart my Super Pack adventure with Imagine’s Arkanoid: Revenge Of Doh. Now, I’m sure everyone has played this at some point in their life because it’s such a popular classic and easy to pick up and play. Our ST conversion was developed by a familiar name from …

Atari 520 STFM Super Pack

September 7, 2019 AtariCrypt

I’ve had an idea… And this is something that I’ve been thinking about for a while but somehow never managed to get around to doing. Let me begin by saying that my first Atari computer was (shock) the 520 STFM model and this beautiful machine came bundled with a ton …

Fuji Boink ASCII

August 30, 2019 AtariCrypt

I really enjoy digging through the ST’s deep archives to see what forgotten goodies I can find and here is one of the best I’ve ever seen. It’s called Fuji Boink ASCII and deceivingly appears to be nothing but a humble text file. Sadly, I’ve no idea who to credit …

Color Clash

August 23, 2019 AtariCrypt

To compensate for the lacking sounds, I decided to add a background tune – by The Phantom. Colour Clash was released in 1992 by AnimalSoft and is a puzzler starring Antonius the chameleon who has been captured by a mad scientist. Yup, there is usually some crazy fool trying to …

Ironman Challenge III

August 19, 2019 AtariCrypt

A couple of years ago, I asked Mike (of The New Retro Show) to play some Atari ST games. An alternative selection that I knew would push this bloke to his limits – it was especially fun watching him endure Fire And Brimstone!! Two years is long enough, so I …

Stunt Car Racer

August 15, 2019 AtariCrypt

Stonish are having a fantastic year with a ton of additions to their database. I downloaded a few of these crackers but ended up loving what Supremacy #7 offered: James Pond – a Steve Bak classic. Action Fighter – hey this is pretty good. The Mystic Well – one for …
