Quite impressive... do you know of any popular games that were made with STOS? I'm curious, how powerful this system was and still is....

Always wanted that compiler but looking back now I had nothing worth compiling :lol:

As for commercial games not sure about STOS made ones on the ST but AMOS made ones on the Amiga were huge in number, I think 1 even won some competition way back Charlie Chimp. So im guessing there was probably a large number released we prob don't even know about.

Lots of those Shoot 'em Construction kit made games ended up on cover disks but to be fair they was pretty much all the same, you just knew when a game was made with that, same layouts, same sprites, same sounds.

Cool Croc Twins for the ST was also made in STOS, I remember looking at the sprites recently. Also you could try the Grandad series of games, Skate Tribe, Psycho Pig 2, Skystrike Plus, Ozone, H.E.R.O., Alien Thing, Bio Hazard, Realms of Reality, Fate Master, there's some more :)
