New section on the site: magazines!

September 25, 2022 by LynXX

News illustration image 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!

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!

Random review

As I said before, this is a simple game. Ok, not the state of the art maybe, but it' s immediately rewarding and fun to play. The problem is that there's not much to do, and you' ll soon get bored. Too bad, it could have been a good game with a few more options, an improved interactivity and a decent tune or two...
