Overscan demos finally imaged

March 9, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image The Overscan Demo was the last production on the Atari ST which was never imaged because of the format used. It has crossed the ages without being spread very well, so just a few people had it in 2004. Now it has been actually imaged and patched by the author himself! So it can be easily stored on a real floppy, or it can be ran with an emulator. Steem users have to employ version 2.61 of the emulator, since version 3.0 doesn't display the graphics of the demo. That same author Paul Simoes has also published some unreleased goodies, mainly devoted to replay routs.

Get the Overscan demos here: http://pacidemo.planet-d.net/atarilegend/OVERSCAN.ZIP

Right now dealing mostly with the ST series, but maybe it will expand to all other Ataris as well. What I'd like to ask you for is any tips you think should be included... get in touch with me: gryzor-at-gryzor-dot-info !

Screenshot of Ishar 2 - Messengers of Doom
Random review

Ishar 2 is a well released game but suffers from few defects. One of them could be the slowness of the gameplay, but graphic quality has a downside, inevitably. This game is, in my opinion, the most fascinating of the trilogy and I advise you to play it.
