Line Of Fire

May 26, 2020 AtariCrypt

Line of Fire was converted from the arcades in 1990 by Creative Materials for US Gold and is basically a “crosshair” shooter. It begins from behind enemy lines as we’re trying to escape never-ending hoards of angry bad guys. They’re annoyed because we’ve sneaked in and pinched their brand new …

Silly Dabbles Demo

May 20, 2020 AtariCrypt

I love finding Atari ST programs that do something silly or unexpectedly cool. There are lots already within our Software section, like Full Screen Construction Kit, MandelST and I even got to play with overscan. Yep, I love to dabble in hiSTory so I was pleasantly shocked to find an …

The Galactic Miner

May 5, 2020 AtariCrypt

Galactic Miner was developed by William Anderson of (wait for it) Willie Wonka And The Software Factory. How ludicrously funny is that? Anyhow, this started life on the TI-99 4/A and is basically a Digger developed using STOS. However, it doesn’t appear compatible with many models of the Atari ST/f/e …

April 19, 2020 AtariCrypt

It’s always exciting to hear of another brand new game in development for the Atari STe and we’ve just been given an early playable demo of Randomazer. It’s by Thomas Ilg, the same fella who gave us a fantastic conversion of Frogs which should also work fine on the Falcon …

STAX #90

April 12, 2020 AtariCrypt

Everyone knows I love Menu Disks and there’s nothing better than going through a pile of floppy disks – even just to listen to the tunes and read through a scroller only relevant 30 odd years ago! 😉 Well, here is a belter by STAX. It’s their 90th disk and …

The Crackers

April 8, 2020 AtariCrypt

Marco’s on the scene again with a great idea for a fourth book: The Crackers. This will be an “untold story” of the secretive world of the cracker and what life was like for those lurking in the illegal side of creativity. The darker side of the Atari ST is …

GIANTS

March 28, 2020 AtariCrypt

This might come as a shock, but I don’t own any Atari ST compilations. Until now that is! Giants was released in 1989 by US Gold and is “a mammoth compilation of world beaters” according to the box. Inside a sturdy plastic case are lots of floppy disks for four …

Liberator

March 22, 2020 AtariCrypt

I’ve been given what I can only describe as a fantastic gift of kindness! A good friend, and patron of AtariCrypt, has donated a box of Atari ST games that he didn’t need and there are some crackers which are new to me: Impact, Battle Chess, Targhan, Skidz, Mean 18, …

The Adventures Of Robin Hood

March 19, 2020 AtariCrypt

I haven’t posted any box art from my collection in a long while – so I figured a guy in tights, lurking in the woods, was the perfect way to the end this bleak streak? The Adventures Of Robin Hood was released in 1991 by Millennium Software and is an RPG …
