[Xmas countdown] Day 6: Rings of Zilfin

December 6, 2018 by muguk

News illustration image It's release #6 of our Atari Legend Advent Calendar and we bring you another of FGC's releases. This time it's Rings of Zilfin.
It was supplied by Alex/ICS and is one of the earlier SSI adventure games that they converted from the original 8-bit release version back in 1986.

MobyGames said this about the game: "Rings of Zilfin is an unusual, but relatively unknown early fantasy solo RPG by Ali N. Atabek, who went on to create the Magic Candle series. It was meant for beginners to computer RPGs, featuring no character creation, simple game play and movie-like cut scenes, concentrating more on atmosphere than on character stats."

Download Rings of Zilfin by SSI

The download above has both an MSA version (which needs to be run from the desktop) and the files version which can be copied across to your hard-drive. Naturally, it's been fixed for Falcon030 as part of CB's work on this release :)

Enjoy!

[Xmas countdown] Day 5: Who can help the Mindfighter?

December 5, 2018 by Brume

News illustration image After a lot of releases by Elite, this is Atari Legend's turn to bring you a new game: Mindfighter. In fact, as mentioned before, both teams joined for the Advent Calendar, so it does not really matter. This is another cross-release.

Today, we offer Mindfighter, an adventure game by Abstract Concept. Although the game is not rare, it has been patched by the FCG: it's now compatible with Falcon 030, but you can run it on a standard ST, of course. It can also be launched from a hard drive.

In the archive, you will find the MSA version and the files version.

Enjoy and see you tomorrow for another rare item.

[Xmas countdown] Day 4 : Twice the fun

December 4, 2018 by ST Graveyard

News illustration image We're back again. And today it is twice the fun. First Elite presents you the rare educational game Construction Company - Beta Version. You can download the game here.

If you're not into building things, we have taken a closer look at the last release by Thomas Ilg, Frogs. A lot has been said about this game, so I couldn't resist to share my thoughts. To spice things up, I added a little bit of history and a mini interview to the review.

[Xmas countdown] Day 3: time to eat some delicious cholocates

December 3, 2018 by Brume

News illustration image As promised, here is our third gift of the Advent Calendar. This time, this is a rare game by AVNI Inc and Atari that Marcer found in his basket. It's named Chocolate Factory and if you think the goal is to prepare chocolate and manage a factory... you're totally right!

The intro was coded by our friend Jace of ST Knights in 2005, while Evil of DHS made the demosystem. Fonts were drawn by Dieu of HMD and guess what? The great new logo was created by STS of Elite (yes, ST Survivor is a member of the team!).

Enjoy and don't forget to come back tomorrow to collect another pure gem before christmas.

Download Chocolate Factory.

[Xmas countdown] Day 2: Dominion is yours

December 2, 2018 by Brume

News illustration image Second day, second game. This time, Elite and Atari Legend bring you Dominion, an unfinished game by Core Design.

Yes, the company behind famous hits such as Car-Vup, Rick Dangerous and Switchblade planned to release a tetris-like game in 1992. But for an unknown reason, it was never published.

Fortunately, a prototype was done. Although it lacks music, the game is fully playable. That's the version we offer to download today. Last but not least: if you like (or hate?) the game, don't hesitate to leave a comment on the game details page or on our Facebook page. See you tomorrow for another gift.

Download Dominion by Core Design.

[Xmas countdown] Day 1: Brenarvious is available for download

December 1, 2018 by Brume

News illustration image Christmas is coming! Elite and Atari Legend wanted to celebrate the event with a big bang. As a result, both groups teamed up to create a great advent calendar. So this year, we will offer you an unreleased or a very rare game each day.

Today Elite brings you the game Brenarvious - Aaron 2 by Top Byte. An incredible intro was coded by !Cube, who also composed a fresh, new tune. Also Prowler has drawn a great new logo for Elite. And the whole thing really rocks!

Greetings are also sent to everyone who took part in this event, especially to Mug UK who suppilied the game, and Marcer who released a great new disk!

The disk can be downloaded here. Enjoy and come back tomorrow to discover another treasure on the advent calendar!

Random review

Around this time of the year in 1994, one of my friends generously surprised me one morning by handing me her boxed copy of Puzznic and saying "This is for you. We're getting a mac for xmas and I've decided to give you some of my games. I'll bring the rest around in a parcel on xmas day in the evening."

Did you know?

In the mid 80's Atari was approached by a company called Nintendo. They asked if Atari was interested in distributing their new 8 bit system. At that time, Jack Tramiel was head of the Atari company. He declined the offer, saying Atari wanted to stop releasing consoles and focus on personal computers instead! So in the end, Nintendo had to distribute the consoles themselves ... In just a few months, they wiped Atari from the throne!
