The Christmas period is over, my spare time returns, and the prolonged absence of our beloved Atari Legend is proving the old adage “You never know what you’ve got until it’s gone.” Here’s hoping that it’s up and running again soon, its loss would be to great to bear for the clutch of ST gamers still out there. Still, the show must go on, and without AL’s guiding hand I must pick my own game to review. Why not pick an absolute cracker then? OK, I will!

Atari ST game releases are very rare these days. Atari ST sudoku games are even rarer. Atari ST sodoku games based in the world of a cult BBC comedy are about as rare as rocking horse shit. Well, maybe not quite that rare anymore as no rocking horse (to my knowledge) has ever feculated, but this year someone has made an Atari ST sudoku game based upon the characters of the BBC’s Mighty Boosh.
Old Atari ST programmer John Leather reckons he has a Supra hard drive full of his old unpublished, unreleased games, demos and dev software. Most notably amongst these, a “little gem of a game” called The Lost World (here’s hoping it isn’t a Jurassic Park license). Unfortunately, his drive is knackered (lazzy band troubles). He is currently trying to jimmy it back into action, and if he succeeds he promises to share the games within. Good times!
Thanks to Jamie Woodhouse for the photo.
That’s not all: he is also friends with James Woodhouse of Qwak and Nitro fame, who also has unreleased stuff he wishes to share. So very soon, we could be inundated with a glut of new stuff to play! I’ll keep you posted. Have a look at the Atari-Forum thread.
The Atari ST PD game reviewing wagon that is! This time, Matty turns his expert eye towards the STOS written Grandad and the Quest For The Holy Vest.
Once again it’s an informative and entertaining read from Matty, though there are a couple of unfair comparisons in there (see if you can spot them). Click here to read the review.
