Bold: another great game released today!

June 9, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image After the release of Droid2 three days ago, another rare game has been published today. This time it was written by Laurent Kermel, who looked very productive back in the old days. Unfortunately his games weren't spread so far so they were unavalaible until today.
Bold requires 1MB to run and was coded in GFA Basic. It is a shoot'em up such as Side Arms or R-Type and it's very fun to play (you need to play with the mouse).
Looks like the author has other games in his basket, too! Can't wait to see them, they seem fun and beautiful.

Grab the full game here and visit the official website here in order to download the documentation.

Droid2 released

June 6, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image Back 10 years ago! A game made in 1994 is now available for download. Looks like Droid2 was never released until now. This is the sequel to Droid, a game written by M.P. Lord and drawn by his brother Paddy. The author has also released the map editor for Droid 1. Thanks to Sauron for the news.

Download directly the game here and visit the homepage of the author.

Random review

Have you ever watched in envy as your friends played "Sonic the Hedgehog" on their fancy Sega consoles? Always wanted to play such a fast platformer on your ST? Well, "Zool" was the much hyped "Sonic" beater for the home computer! Released in 2 different versions for the Atari ST (an ST version and an STe enhanced version) by Gremlin Graphics, this game should have it all, big sprites, colorful graphics and most importantly... SPEED!

Did you know?

Did you know that there are some love messages in the TOS ROMs of the ST? In fact you can find the strings "Dave StaUgas loves Bea Hablig" and "JIM LOVES JENEANE" in all TOS ROMs with version number 1.xx and 2.0x!
