Bitmap Soft releases definitive collection of DROID

November 13, 2021 by ST Graveyard

News illustration image 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!

Listen to your favorite game music on the site

August 23, 2021 by LynXX

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!

Interview with the Lord brothers

June 9, 2021 by ST Graveyard

News illustration image 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.

Up close and personal with Jamie Hamshere aka Junosix

June 4, 2021 by ST Graveyard

News illustration image In 2017 he enhanced Klax for the Atari STe, a little later he created the sound engine Turbochip and most recently, he completely redid the amazing platform shooter Droid for the Atari STe, turning from a flipscreen game into an 8 directional hardware scroller. Oh, and let's not forget his incredible work on Lotus Esprit STe. Join me as we go into full detail on all these projects and more, in this indepth interview with Jamie Hamshere aka Junosix!

Random review

And even though Crash Time Plumber is an ace (free) game, I do wonder what can be done with what we have here. A great game engine, a fantastic idea. What if a 2 player mode would be implemented? And different types of levels? And some boss battles? I'm dreaming again here. Seems these amazing Cerebral Vortex games have that effect on me ;-)

Did you know?

What does ST stand for? Some people believe it is an abbreviation of "Sam Tramiel", head of Atari. Others say it is short for "16 32", cause the ST was the first in a line of 16 - 32 bit computers by Atari!
