There were not many famous programmers for the Atari ST in Germany. Guido Henkel is one of them for sure. Games like Hellowoon, Ooze and Lords of Doom on the ST or the Das schwarze Auge trilogy - aka the Realms of Arkania in English - and Planescape: Torment will be unforgotten. ‘Hellowoon’ was the first game, that I bought for the ST, I had the idea to do this interview over a year ago and to my pleasure, Guido agreed with the words: ‘Yes, of course. Thanks, that you still remember me’.

Graphically, it's also nice on the eyes with well-defined graphics and animation. You really get the feeling that the developers put some thought and love into the game. Remember what I said about the large levels? Well these are wonderful and are very different to each other, they also scroll fairly smooth in all four directions.

When you boot up the game you’re presented with a fantastic loading picture of your ship. It's detailed with bold colours and it tells you This is 16-bit, bitch. Then you get the wonderful rendition of the Cybernoid theme that's on all the 8-bit versions. It's not exact but the changes still make it noticeable to anyone who knows it.

Now all of this might sound a bit much, but that really is not the biggest problem with Live and Let Die. In Buggy Boy you had checkpoints to reach in time. In this game, they have taken it all a step further...or maybe better, a whole leap further. You see, you run out of fuel when moving forward. And you run out of it fast, way fast. To solve this problem, fuel pods are scattered all over the waterway. Grab them, and you win yourself some time. Miss them and run out of fuel and guess what ... YOU EXPLODE!
