Synthwave alert - An interview with Stefan Benz / Lotek Style

September 17, 2019 by ST Graveyard

News illustration image If there is one man who has done his share of contributions to the Atari ST scene, it must be Stefan Benz. He is the founder of projects like Fading Twilight and Fujiology, main Atari ST archivist at demozoo.org, full time YM Rocker and member of The Sirius Cybernetics Corporation. He has been creating chiptunes since the early 90's and has recently released his first synthwave album called Laser Days. If you are a fan of Atari ST demos, the scene or music, this has got to be your cup of tea! Check it out here.

Box scanning and buying originals!

September 13, 2019 by Marcer

In the last few months, I was lucky enough to borrow Krilar's complete originals collection, for dumping and box-scanning.

Now he has got into dumping and scanning too and he has supplied his own preservation dumps too. Many thanks mate!!

Meanwhile, whilst I was working out the original games, a small devil woke up inside me.
- Hey some boxes are cool.
- Hello Ebay!

Now i have started to collect and buy original games like a madman.
The majority of the games I personally try to buy are missing from our database, nor are they available elsewhere.

So work is going on in the shadows here on Atari Legend. We are beavering away to get as much information, box scans and preparations for the hosting of these original disk dumps are on-going.

A big batch of rare menus on Stonish

July 4, 2019 by Brume

News illustration image This is not directly related to Atari Legend but rather its small sister site, Stonish.net. We are really proud to announce we've recently imaged most of the Supremacy menus, which is probably one of the rarest collections ever made. As great news never comes alone, we've also received many The Deliverance menus, which are really scarce, too.
The Deliverance menus are already on the site. Supremacy disks will be uploaded step by step, one per day during the holidays.
Thanks must be sent to Poliyo Soft, Razaac/Supremacy, AD/MPS, Pump/MPS, Cooper/Paradize, GT Turbo/Cerebral Vortex and Orion/Replicants for their help.
Visit the Stonish website to download all these disks and get more info on this subject.

520 days later

March 5, 2019 by ST Graveyard

520 is a magical number in the world of Atari. Today, exactly 520 days ago, we released the new Atari Legend project. And this calls for celebration. I was hoping to have something nice for you all in store, but lately, we all have been very busy and real life has been getting in the way.

Still, a lot of great stuff happened during the past year and a half. For me personally, the biggest surprise occured in November 2017, a month after the initial release. Nico joined our development team. He has been a big help so far, teaching us how to properly code. We have had the pleasure to work with some great teams as well, releasing nice, new productions. The DB guys have been busy, adding more games and detailed info. And we have had the opportunity to talk to some very interesting people and share this with you all. 10 interviews and 19 reviews were released, which I personally still really enjoy doing. For this year, we have some big plans ahead.

I do hope to at least make some of them reality, so stay tuned. I would like to thank you all for the support. Stay Atari!

Cheers!

News illustration image After a break of a few weeks, we are proud to offer you again a new release: Esprits Maths CE1-CE2 volume 1.

This time it is an educational game signed by the company Lankhor. Sorry for the non-French readers, but this game is so rare that we couldn't miss it.

The music is signed by Epic of TMS crew and it's an unpublished track.

The Replicants are back and they have a great gift for you!

December 25, 2018 by Brume

News illustration image As a last gift for Christmas, we are very proud to offer you a new release by... The Replicants! Yes, the famous French team is back, that's not a fake!

So what is the name of the game? The Replicants present Safari Guns, a French game that was never properly cracked. Orion did a fantastic job and he also multi-trained the game. You now have unlimited lives, but also max points per pictures, level selection, etc.
Also please note the game is now working on Atari Falcon, too! Yes, it has been tested on the bird machine and it works like a charm!

As good news never comes alone, their first hack after 25 years is a cross-release: it's signed by our friends of Hemoroids, but also by... Atari Legend! We are very honored to see our name associated with the famous Replicants, indeed.
The great intro has been coded by Kelly X of HMD, while Dieu made the brilliant graphics. Also don't forget the new tune composed by Dma-Sc from sector One. We really hope you'll enjoy the result as we do each time we see this Xmas intro.

Enough spoken! Time to download the game and wish a good comeback to the Replicants! Also don't miss their next release, which is an even more unexpected game.

Random review

I remember many a night on my ZX Spectrum playing Cybernoid and its sequel for hours on end. It was a hard and frustrating experience as you had to be pixel perfect to get past screen after screen. It seemed very closed in and one wrong move resulted in you dying over and over.
