I've finally got hold of a (legitimate) copy of this incredible game. It surpassed my expectations. It's so smoothe and playable. The sound is also fantastic. The rooms are a bit samey but I think that adds to the intense atmosphere.
UDS were undoubtably THE masters of STE programming. This may not be quite as good as Obsession but it's more than I ever thought possible on an 8MHz machine.
It's a shame so many people had already abandoned their Ataris when this came out. Who knows what UDS could have done next... :
This was indeed something special for the STE. A great piece of programming marvel. The atmosphere was pretty creepy, and the sound system was impressive.
But in the end the fun didn't last long for me. I thought Substation was to repetitive. Substation came a bit to late in the ST's life span.
The best 3D shooter memories I have on the ST where the 1st person levels of Robocop 3.
It took a while to get used to it, but in the end, Substation has something that many quicker and more colourful ego-shooters on PC lacked back then: A great story and a lot of atmosphere.
The final level is terribly hard if not impossible. The end, however, suits the game perfectly well ...
One of the STE all time classics.
There are 3 extra levels released as PD aswell
