A new Magazines section has been added on Atari Legend! We will be slowly populating the database and linking the magazines to game reviews (including scores) and developer interviews. When checking out a game, you will be able to read all the magazine reviews at the time to get a full picture on how it was received.
We rely on archive.org providing the magazine as a way to safely store them on the long term and make them available more generally, outside of Atari Legend. If you posses magazine collections, please consider scanning them and uploading them there!

After the release of the video a few months ago, Bitmap Soft is now ready to do the announcement. A beautiful boxed definitive edition of the MP Lord classic Droid will be released in time for Christmas. This release will contain the original ST Format release, the STe enhanced version by Jamie Hamshere and a final version of Droid 2, with a few bug fixes done by Miles Lord himself. And of course, as in true Bitmap Soft tradition, some extras like a nice booklet with author notes and more.
If you want a boxed ST game underneath your christmas tree, you can pre-order here.
From my side, I hope to release a 'making of' video and company profile video on the AL TV channel in the coming weeks.
And friends, there is more to come in 2022!

Game pages now feature game tunes! Checkout the music player on the right side of Turrican for example.
The player has been added some time back but it took a while to associate each tune with each game. The music comes from the SNDH archive and the recordings are gracefully provided by sndhrecord.atari.org (Thanks Adam!). Check out this site to listen to a lot of other non-games tunes (demos, etc.)
Enjoy the sound, and let us know if you spot any mistakes!

Zero-5 was one of the most ambitious games during the final years of the Atari STe's lifespan. An incredible spaceshooter which really showed what the STe was capable of. Find out more in our in-depth interview with its creator Andrew Gisby here.

The last chapter in our little SCUMMVM adventure. We talk to Anders Granlund, the man who made it possible to run the Lucasarts classics Monkey Island 2, Fate of Atlantis and Day of the Tentacle on a standard ST. Check out the interview for all the juicy details.

Miles and Patrick Lord are two self taught game creators. Born in the 70's, they grew up with Sinclair machines and of course the Atari ST. They started to hack games on the mighty ZX Spectrum before dabbling into 16bit assembler. On the Atari, they created the amazing Droid. But it didn't end there. If you want to know more about the history of one of the best free games ever to grace an ST Format coverdisc, look no further.
It is 1992, me and my life long Atari ST buddy (Cheers to you R Hellshrieker!) are 12 years old, and we get our hands on a copy of this game. We didn’t know what to expect. The game starts impressive. A very atmospheric, beautifully drawn intro animation, with very moody sampled music. What is this all about? And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, almost right from the get go, we are treated with (albeit small) digitized shots of a naked lady in the shower. I can assure you, at that moment, the game was turned into an instant classic!
