Dungeon

October 19, 2018 AtariCrypt

Dungeon is a role-player released in 1993 by TC Basset for legends, Budgie UK. It uses the Talespin adventure game creator engine which is something I’ve personally never experienced before. Upon loading, we are greeted by a creepy dude (with an obvious blood pressure problem) who has an incredible sense …

Goldrunner

October 16, 2018 AtariCrypt

It’s been a while since I posted into our Music section so I went looking for something extra special and then I remembered about this gem. It’s a Dark Rock remake of the Rob Hubbard original and it blew me away!! Okay, I’ll award 100 points if you can tell …

The Atari ST and The Creative People

October 15, 2018 AtariCrypt

  It was only back in August when I posted just how impressed I was with volume 2 and, within the blink of an eye, Marco has the third instalment up on Indiegogo. The first two volumes are beauties and I’m expecting more of the same from the final part …

Yomo

October 14, 2018 AtariCrypt

Yomo is an oldskool shoot ’em up by Aaron Fothergill for Mandarin Software and a runner-up in The 1989 Games Writer Of The Year Award competition. I’ve always liked its 8-bit look and finally got around to booting it up. Firstly, don’t get your hopes up too high because this …

Rubicon

October 10, 2018 AtariCrypt

I’ve enjoyed Rubicon on and off for many years. It’s quite simply my kinda game because it’s a stupid mix of both platformer and shoot ’em up genres. However, I admit that I’m rubbish and often failed to reach the third level – sometimes I cannot get by the first!! …

Thomas Ilg, of Laserball and Anarcho Ride fame, has released an early beta of his next project: Frogs. This is an Atari STe conversion of the C64 original and features more of the same zany gameplay with up to four little froggies frantically hopping around ponds munching defenceless bugs. Older …

Wings Of Death

September 15, 2018 AtariCrypt

Thalion’s Wings Of Death is a vertically-scrolling shoot ’em up which even supports the extra bits ‘n’ bobs lurking within the Atari STe for a truly stunning production. Gorgeous graphics and beautiful audio are matched in equal measure by the killer gameplay. Yet, despite my joystick skills, I’ve recorded another …

Eye Of Horus

September 14, 2018 AtariCrypt

Walk Like An Egyptian… Fly Like a Bird and subscribe to our channel 🙂 I’ve been trolling through my old videos and found Logotron’s Eye Of Horus. I remember this curious platformer thanks to the confusing labyrinths with many rather peculiar enemies. So it’s time to revisit this one… We’re …

Strider

September 11, 2018 AtariCrypt

I remember reading the review of Strider in ST Format who made it appear so brilliant and even explained how the ST may have had smaller sprites but the gameplay was faster and better than the Amiga. I foolishly believed them and wasted my cash on a game I could …
