The new 'article' section is online

May 17, 2018 by ST Graveyard

Hello everybody,

After quite awhile, Atari Legend has finally gotten a new upgrade. We have been working daily. Lot's of stuff has been done on the back-end (which you can check out for yourself when you log in, should you be interested). However, the most noticable change is the new Articles section. I've written a first restoration article. I hope to do more of these things in the future and share my knowledge with those interested.

The next upgrade will be all about games. It will be worth the wait.

Take care.

Yes we are still alive!

News illustration image Over two months have passed since the last announcement. Our team of developers is still hyper active and continuesly working on the project. Fixing bugs, enhancing the experience ... And also, as promised, new features should soon be added.
At the same time, our database team is constantly correcting data and adding new titles very regularly. We do not post an announcement for each change that is done (you could check the change log for an overview). We hope the database starts to give you satisfaction and is getting more complete. Feel free to post a comment if you see a problem, we'll correct it immediately.
Finally, at the beginning of the year, we also received a huge donation of 130 games and software from Maho in Lyon (Virtual Worlds on the left was one of the games he sent). A big thanks to him for the 5 big parcels we received. A real treasure! We are listing, dumping and scanning the whole thing. The scans of the boxes are added progressively on the site, and the dumps will be available as soon as the Download part will be operational.
So stay connected, because the best is yet to come;)

Supa Zazai Da is out : Download it here!

February 9, 2018 by ST Graveyard

News illustration image Templeton, one of the best coders still active in the Atari ST scene, has just finished his brand new shooter Supa Zazai Da! The game was first presented in December 2017 at the Silly Venture convention, but it wasn't yet completely finished and debugged. 3 weeks ago, Templeton got in touch with us and asked if we would like to do the announcement once the game would be ready for the public. He gave us a preview version of the STe/Mega ST release (This game uses the blitter!) while he continued working on the Falcon release.

Finally now, the Falcon version is finished also, and this is what Templeton had to say about it :

"I did not want to change the gameplay by adding more things compared to MegaST / STe versions so that the scores are identical on all machines, so I improved the realization and added options. It's a shame because according to my first tests ... I could have displayed at least 3 times more items!

The Falcon version has the real instrumental music of Nirvana (+ a new one for the last level). The music is in Mp2 format decompressed in real time by the DSP. Visually there is something extra like thicker particles, or more behind the Boss (not to change the gameplay), an animated boss, etc ...

Finally, I added options such as keyboard support and Jag PAD / Falcon PAD, an Overscan mode (stretching the image), a switch to 60/50 HZ with gameplay readjusted, VGA support with gameplay readjusted , and the ability to disable music and / or sound effects."


You can find more technical details in the txt files that accompanies the downloads. So here it is :
Supa Zazai Da in all its glory! You can find the download links in the comment section.

Oh, and even though my fingers got completely blistered by all the oldshool shooting mayhem, I was still able to write a full review of the game ;-)

Hope you all like it!

Random review

As soon as the title screen appears, the tone is set. The design of the game is wonderful and the following screens confirm the feeling. Graphics are signed Vierbit, with additional work by Heavy Stylus and C-Rem, the same guys who had worked on the first game (Templeton, however, disappeared from the 'r0x zero' scene). The little ship you control is simple, but detailed, just like the enemies.
