Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny

I think Santa has come early! Atari Legend is playing Santa with a fantastic run-up to Christmas by releasing something special every day throughout December. It wasn't until the 7th when they released a HDD-patched download of Ultima 5 did I become intrigued. I've not played any Ultima before and this looks especially interesting so I had to try it! The land of Britannia has lost its king, Lord British and is now ruled by a tyrant called Blackthorn. Okay, it all sounds corny and the visuals…

Another World

Another World

Another World was released by Delphine Software back in 1991 and I feel this 16-bit legend is groundbreaking and something everyone will fondly remember? Gameplay feels like a cross between Prince Of Persia with dollops of Dragon's Lair thrown in, which isn't something this old retro gamer would normally be too eager about. However, this beauty is going straight into our Pixel Art section thanks to the stunning visuals created by Eric Chahi. Our adventure begins with a nice intro that nicely…

AtariCrypt: Black Tiger

Black Tiger

Black Tiger is one of those games that I have loved since day one and today I got to play it once again after what feels like a lifetime ago! It's a good arcade conversion but sadly, my old joystick doesn't work well moving diagonally... So you will see lots of silly mistakes in my video recording. Honestly, it's the joystick! This game is classic arcade fun - pick up that joystick and instantly you're having tons of fun leaping over the landscapes and pummelling monsters into oblivion. Each…

Nightbreed - The Interactive Movie

When they knew how to make horror movies... I remember watching Nightbreed back in the day and absolutely loved it. Okay, it was a little cheesy but I'm a fan of most horror genres and Clive Barker never disappoints. It had such a different twist to its style and atmosphere and I loved the idea of Midian and its freaks being the good guys. Something I didn't expect at the time. Being the weirdo that I am, I would have loved to see Midian for myself one dark night - of course, armed with…

Faster Than Light: The Atari ST

Jamie Lendino of ExtremeTech has released a new book dedicated to the worlds best 16-bit computer. I've only just got the digital edition tonight but I've enjoyed flicking through some pages and to say I'm impressed would be a huge understatement. This is seriously good Stuff. Heck, even my little website gets a mention which is mind-blowing. Faster Than Light is crammed full and covers many different topics: from the history and range of different computers along with the various uses we…

Manic Miner (again!)

It's amazing to think we have Manic Miner for the Atari ST. I still cannot believe it and to think that it all started as a cruel windup (a teasing picture of the starting screen). Peter, you are a cruel, cruel man lol Enough waffling because here is a video showing snippets from each of the twenty levels. Now, those with eager eyes (and ears) will notice that this is STILL unfinished (come on, Peter pull yer finger out mate!!!) but I'm sure you will still enjoy what is nothing short of an…

Box Art help

As you guys probably already know, I enjoy sharing my personal Atari ST games collection within our Box Art section (three pages!). However, it's pretty tough getting the capture - as I manually try to line up the phone without shaking too much!! In fact, it's often pure luck when it goes right and that's after taking dozens of lame photos... I've been looking to see what iOS apps can make my life easier and ended up finding something called 'Memories'. This is umm okay but the freebie…

Hibernated 1 - This Place is Death

I've just taken delivery of what is possibly my final purchase for the Atari ST, Hibernated 1 by Stefan Vogt. You know, I feel like I've waited years for this to pop through my letterbox but it is here and I'm ecstatic to report a fantastic product. I'm unsure whether remove its lovely plastic seal... bah!! Of course, I've already unwrapped it!! Hibernated was reviewed back in August (how time flies) and I included an animation to demonstrate the game's awesome sense of humour during the…

Missile Command

[ my video recording shows both colour and monochrome games ] Let's take a big step back in time Straight out of the golden age of Atari's retro gaming archives is Missile Command, a phenomenal shooter which I played a lot, but more so on my old Speccy thanks to Ocean's Armageddon, a fantastic conversion. This cold war era shoot 'em up was all about protecting the cities of Zardon from a constant ballistic missile attack: aliens from Krytol noticed how prosperous Zardon is so want to…

Reach For The Skies

It's time for some cool BoxArt and today we have a wonderful flight sim by Rowan/Virgin called Reach For The Skies. I've definitely landed lucky because the box is in superb condition and even the contents are in good nick: manual, keycard and disks. It's almost like I used a time machine and revisited 1993 ( sigh... just imagine... ) Reach For The Skies was released back in 1993 and attempts a recreation of the Battle Of Britain era between the Royal Air Force and the German Luftwaffe. It's…

Intro by The Conceptors

Sometimes I need a break from the norm... So, over the last few days, I've been having a 'fumble' through my entire collection of Menu Disks. Whilst I've got the usual run of the mill stuff like Automation, Pompey Pirates, etc... I also found a few disks which I'd never seen before. Or possibly my old-man-memory had just forgotten? Anyhow, here's the menu from one such disk - Menu #01 by The Conceptors. I genuinely haven't heard of this group but I must admit, this is one sexy intro using…

Go Ahead Make My Bed

I figured I needed to make a silly video for Halloween and what better than Chainsaw Massacre by The Lost Boys? It's a short and nostalgically entertaining but also a fantastic example of the banter between ST groups. I love this a lot and ended the show with a beautifully-scary image taken from Halloween, by The Black Twins. Those of you who are too much of a wimp to watch a Swedish Carebear getting mutilated might be better off playing a game or two instead? The Atari ST has quite a large…

Liberator

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 he didn't need and there are some crackers which are new to me: Impact, Battle Chess, Targhan, European Soccer, Mean 18, Rock 'n Roll and Sky Fighter. Christmas has come early!! Well, add Liberator to that list. The box intrigued me with screenshots that appear a mix of Toobin' and Mystical. Like they both had a baby - then dropped it. Picked…
