||Brilliant little game
that came with my ST, works in ST high or medium resolutions, may
work on Atari clones in Single TOS mode
||Small game where you have
to land your little man on top of a cross, looks rubbish on anything
other than a monitor and it needs an ST to run, strangely compelling.
|Box the Dragon and Mastermind
||Two games, Box the Dragon
being simple but addictive, Mastermind being simple but not so addictive.
Alarmingly, despite being ancient, this runs flawlessly on the Milan,
though its too small in high resolutions
Box the Dragon and Mastermind
||Slightly more up to date
version of the classic
||A vertical avoid-em-up.
It's fast and frenetic, if a bit crappy looking
||Small Space Invaders clone,
with both original and modern modes. A nice bit of nostalga.
||Another fun, small but
nicely formed game, Jetpac can best be likened to Joust, though with
lasers as opposed to spears.
||Reasonably nice looking
shareware platformer, where you must guide your round charater out
of a platform hell
|Rebels Vs Laserthons
||Laser Squad clone, although
obviously as non commercial software lacks the scope and polish.
Rebels vs Laserthons
|It's a Mugs Game
||Boxing game with highly
polished (if abstract) beginning and sound effects. Game pretty much
involves wacking the fire button as much as poss
It's a Mug's Game
|War Zone (1MB)
||Fairly competent if graphically
uninspiring Worms clone for the ST, most of the gadgets are there.
|Power Up Demo (1MB)
||Demo of the overhead racer,
much in the style of Super Sprint and Super Cars. Prefers HD disk
drive, and a Falcon or STE. Though it will work on a STFM, and will
fit onto two DD floppies, if you split the files (somehow?)
Power Up Demo
|Douglas Rockmoor (1MB)
||Yes it's that game again,
this one works on all Atari compatibles including the Milan in GEM
|World Fighting Championship
||Err yes, well it's not
Streetfighter 2 by any means, but it might keep you occupied for five
World Fighting Championship
||Another brilliant game
by Elite (Did they ever do anything rubbish?). A Bubble Bobble style
single screen platfomer. Collect the bombs before you get clobbered
by a range of strange enemies.
||Yes one of the all time
greats, a bit to lacking in excitment for my tastes, but a classic
none the less. Construct your city, building houses, power plants,
airports and shops. Then try and stop yourself going bust, or the
city falling to pieces round your ears.
||Non commercial Light Cycles
game, good for a laugh.
||Non commercial Dynablaster
|Goin' Down with the Captain
||No not some sort of Carry
On inspired joke title for some sort of dodgy tongue waggling sim,
this is a platform game, wher you must plug the leaks in a sinking
ship. Very much inspired by the game Tin Tin on the Moon, only this
is more playable.
Goin' Down with the Captain
||Helicopter game, clearly
inspired by Desert Strike etc on the Megadrive and SNES.
||The opening cover mounted
game for the excellent Zero magazine, Recoil is a great Defender clone
by Special FX, the chaps responsible for many of Ocean's horizontal
||Commercial game from Hewson,
another Zero goody, Ammotrak is a bit like Road Wars, the graphics
are crude in places, but it's very speedy, and the road looks good
(i.e. not stripy like most driving games!)
||Another classic, Rampage
takes the King Kong theme to it's logical conclusion. It gives you
control of a giant monster, and gives you a city to smash with your
mates. Once again this came from a Zero coverdisk from the days before
the games industry had conspired to kill home computers by banning
full games from coverdisks.
||Shareware game from the
infamous Dave Munsie. Asteroidia is unsuprisingly another Asteroids
clone. It's kind of snazzed up, like Star Dust or Blasteroids, but
it's very slow on an a STFM. The inertia situation is also very unrealistic,
and you have great difficulty controlling your ship, Megaroids (also
on this site) is more satisfying if less pretty.
||Vertical scrolling shoot
em up. Very hard, with difficult to hit baddies, but one of the better
||Shareware by Sinister
Developents, pretty good centipede clone, with good chip music!
||Probably the best version
of the lasers and mirrors genre, with a catchy chip music theme tune.
Deflektor was another commercial game (from Gremlin) released on a
Zero cover disk. Unfortuantly with this program it was impossible
to seperate it from the other program on the disk, a playable demo
of Venus, so there.
||The title also mentions
'the frisky flea' but I thought I'd leave that out for decency's sake.
Bizarre non commercial platformer, moving the joystick effects the
strength of the jump and the fire button sends you on your merry way.
It's tricky to get the hang of, but strangely endearing. Kind of sweet
Fred (The Frisky Flea)
||Colourful and playable
||Professional looking platformer
from the Rick Dangerous school of style. Stuck in a pyramid your character
must escape some rather tricky and devious (not to mention deadly)
|Lords of Chaos Level
||The exclusive level that
was done for Zero magazine. I think anyone who's read the reviews
section knows how much I rate this game! While the spells are more
limited in this demo it's still supremely playable.
Lords of Chaos level
||Another shareware arcade
conversion from Sinister Developments, this time it's the infamous
Galaxians who get the treatment. Not as good as their version of Centipede,
but maybe that's the original game for you...
||Another Boulderdash clone,
PD was always awash with them. This one has niceish graphics and is
||Yet another Boulderdash
clone, though this, allegedly, is the best on the ST.
|Cops N' Robbers
||Charming little non-commercial
game, involving two players. One's the cops and another's the robbers.
The robbers try to rob banks while the cops have to try and catch
Cops N' Robbers
|Cops N' Robbers 2
||As above, but considerably
improved!!. Thanks to the author Kevin Scott himself for sending this!
Cops N' Robbers 2
||Very addictive puzzler.
|Bomb and Blastman
||Very good non commercial
two player Super Bomberman clone.
Bomb and Blastman
||One for the Americans,
this is a reasonable commercial baseball game from Activision (Zero
cover game). It makes about as much sense to me as the offside rule
means to Dr Spock, but there we are...
||One of the better known
of Zero's cover mounted commercial games, Steel has your robot exploring
a space ship as it tries not to be destroyed by a never ending supply
of enemies. The most important objects (computers in the background)
can be accessed by pressing up on the joypad/stick. Doors can be accessed
by pressing up and down respectively.
||Infiltration game, with
seemingly one of the longest intro's in history (and it's tedious!).
Basically you have to guide these robots past security guards and
camera's to access a safe. A tad tricky, to say the least...Zero cover
disk commmercial game.
|Thurg and Murg
||A pretty good non commercial
platformer with nice graphics and gameplay. Kind of a cross between
Bubble Bobble and Bomb Jack.
Thurg and Murg
|Walls of Illusion (1mg)
||Shareware version of the
excellent Dungeon Master clone. It's so well done, it's almost as
good as the original. Probably the best of the non commercial Dungeon
Master clones. This is the English version.
Walls of Illusion
|Chaos (1mg version)
||This is an unofficial
16bit conversion of the 8bit game Chaos by Julian Gollop. This is
the game on which Lords of Chaos is based. It's got all the elements
of it's big brother here (although on a much smaller scale), plus
some excellent samples that really contribute to the gameplay. One
of the gems of PD. A 512k version will be uploaded as well soon.
||Goodish version of chess,
but you have to fight your opponents with weapons. Similarish to Battle
Chess. People expecting piles of forethought and intelligence may
||Another, less sophisticated
version of the nothing better to do on a PC classic.
||A selection of Tetris
variants that run under GEM and therefore are compatible with all
Atari's including the Milan.
||Kind of like an adventure
game crossed with Gauntlet. The graphics aren't all that special,
I can't remember hearing any sound, and its very easy to die. It's
an adventure game though, so fans of the genre may quite like it.
There is a sequel, which will be uploaded in due course. PD.
|Glass Buttock of Tharg
||Shareware adventure game,
very similar in graphical style to the first Ishar game. Your team
of comedy characters much go around recruiting as many men as possible
in order to eliminate the Glass Buttock. A very nice game indeed from
the author of Grandad.
Glass Buttock of Tharg
||Funny snowball throwing
game. A slight similarity to Worms. Players lob snowballs at each
other accompanied by a range of amusing samples. Pretty enjoyable
|Sky Duel (Not TOS 2.06
or TOS 1.02)
||Shareware by Munsie. Excellent
little game. Fly your little machines in an attempt to blast your
opponent out of the sky. Really very good.
|Snowball in Hell
||Totally random title for
a game with no relation to either of these things. Its really a odd
mix of Breakout and a shoot-em-up. Very frustrating. Ex-commercial
from one of ST Format's cover disks.
Snowball in Hell
||3D first person adventure,
written using the Freescape system. It's hardly Goldeneye, but the
3D is reasonable and you can work out what's going on quite easily.
Time has clearly been spent on the graphics, but the system is a bit
jerky, and the controls sometimes annoying.
||Excellent (If you like
that sort of thing) little text adventure with graphics.
||Strategy game in the style
of Civilisation. The bonus being that several ST's can be linked together
using, suprisingly from the title, midi cables. The docs are mainly
in German, but Zogging Hell has written a small playing guide to help
you get started (docs/zoggdoc.txt). The program itself is in English.
||Starball is a shareware
pinball game and a very good at that. Hailed as the greatest non-commercial
game ever on the ST.
|Robot Repairs Inc
||Arcade game. Your probe
thingy must collect virus particles from inside a robots head. You
could go mad if you took that scenario seriously! From the author
of Cops N Robbers.
||More snowball chucking,
without the samples of the game elsewhere in this page. From the author
of Cops N Robbers.
