Reliving the ST games of Christmas 1988

I always thought my first ST was given to me for Christmas 1987 as the Explorer Pack... but after some research, it looks like I had the Super Pack for Christmas 1988 (520 STfm). Weird really, I could have sworn I remember it as the Explorer! Anyhow, I'm about to relive that first Christmas all over...

Death Chase

Atari ST for exxos.jpg When I first heard of this game, I thought ZX Spectrum and Mervyn Estcourt... but it's no 3D racer! In fact, I'd rate this as one of the best Atari ST games I've ever played. It's just so much fun! ...even though I couldn't play it using my joystick! https://ataricrypt.blogsp...

Re: Shadowlands

Wow that is some serious upgrade they have there for under 400 quid. It's a shame the ST doesn't have something similar (or does it? I don't really follow). But looking at that, I'm sure it would be possible on the Falcon or TT but they're still way behind that 68060 so they'd struggle too? Again, g...

Re: Shadowlands

I didn't know about that but I'd be shocked if anybody tried to bring it to the ST. It'd be possible on the STe with a reduction to the colours, etc... but would it work overall? Surely this game is too huge for a 4MB machine? But...are there the ppl to put in the time on the ST - Esp compared to th...

Shadow lands Atari ST.png Calling all Diablo fans... no, wait... Sorry! But seriously, this is one sweet game and it's years ahead of its time in some ways. I really love this RPG.

Re: When I hate the ST :o

I know. Yuk game. Yuk lame conversion. :( TBH though, I've since thought about this... Seeing the ST doing everything that it is doing, WITHOUT using the STe's hardware, is actually impressive on some level. Of course, it's a joke compared to the Amiga so still a sad shame. But still, the ST holds i...

Re: When I hate the ST :o

Oh how many times I've gone to wiki for various gaming info only to be told that the game I'm playing on my ST only came out on machines like the Amiga /etc/etc lol It's sad if Psygnosis kept to the bog-standard 720kb disk rather than using 10 sectors. There's no excuses. But then again, they usuall...

Re: When I hate the ST :o

Lemmings also felt like a lame port to me but Xenon?? Come on mate, surely not!!
Then again, I never got off "sector one". Not back in the day anyhow, only did it once or maybe twice the other year. Didn't cheat, honest.

When I hate the ST :o

yolanda_2.gif Some people seem to think I love every single Atari ST. (It's hard not too!) Well, I don't. There are some stinkers out there and I think you might be shocked by one or two I picked ;) Yolanda is only one... Click here for the others: https://ataricrypt.blogspot.com/2018/03/atari-st-g...

Re: H.A.T.E

Yeah it's got a bit of a Zaxxon theme going on, I'm sure you'll enjoy this one mate. Let me know if you play it.
