What an accomplishment this game is. Created with such a small team, the result is really amazing. The game oozes creative passion. While the gameplay is really well balanced, it is a tough cookie, very hard from time to time with its moments of sheer frustration. As of level 3, timing becomes key. You will need to practice and learn the levels to complete this game, there are so many bad guys on screen it sometimes gets a bit hard to take.

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.
What does ST stand for? Some people believe it is an abbreviation of "Sam Tramiel", head of Atari. Others say it is short for "16 32", cause the ST was the first in a line of 16 - 32 bit computers by Atari!
Acopy (Utility) is present on 15 menudisks.
THE EVIL FORCE PROUDLY PRESENT EVIL DISK NUMBER 4 I AM IN THE MIDDLE OF ONE OF THOSE STAY UP ALL NIGHT AND HACK KINDA THINGS AGAIN, SO EXPECT QUITE A SCROLLER THIS TIME! DURING THIS SCROLL I WILL TALK ABOUT MANY DIFFERENT THINGS! THERE WONT BE A GREET LIST ON THIS ONE, AS THE LAST MENU HAD A VERY EXTENSIVE ONE!!! ANYWAY, FIRST ON THE LIST IS THE GREAT GAME ON THIS MENU WHICH IS CALLED MIDNIGHT RESISTANCE! THIS HAS GOT TO BE ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING GAMES I HAVE SEEN IN A LONG TIME! ITS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE MINDLESS SHOOTEM UPS, BUT I REALLY LIKE THE GRAPHICS ON IT! DO YOU? ANYWAY, LETS TALK ABOUT THE ACTUAL MENU STATUS. I AM IN THE PROCESS OF ADDING AN EQUALIZER, OR PERHAPS AN UPPER BORDER SCROLL AS WELL. I HAVE THE SOURCE TO READ THE VOLUME, AND AM JUST WORKING ON GETTING IT TO WORK PROPERLY WITH OUR MENU. EXPECT TO SEE IT IN THE NEXT FEW DISKS, PERHAPS... TCC IS ON VACATION RIGHT NOW, SO ITS JUST ME AND M.O. FOR A WEEK OR TWO. AFTER THAT, I AM GOING ON VACATION FOR A MONTH, BUT TCC AND MO CAN SURELY KEEP THE DISKS FLOWING, I HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THEM... MY MEGA HERE THAT I AM USING TO WRITE THIS MENU IS ON THE BLINK AGAIN?

ALRIGHT, SO DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY TO ME RIGHT NOW??? NO!? OH ALRIGHT ILL LET YOU HOLD YOUR PEACE FOR A WHILE LONGER I SUPPOSE. I REALLY LIKE THE NEW HOTLINE INTRO WITH THE BIG BOUNCING LOGO ON THE TOP! I WILL HAVE TO DESIGN SOMETHING SIMILAR TO THAT MYSELF FOR OUR MENUS IN THE FUTURE WHEN I GET A LITTLE BETTER AT CODING, ALTHOUGH WE ARE OFF TO A GREAT START ALREADY! ON THIS DISK YOU WILL FIND A WHOLE PILE OF UTILITIES AS WELL! MANY PACKERS FROM THE VARIOUS GROUPS HAVE BEEN INCLUDED ON THE DISK, AND I HOPE YOU FIND THEM OF USE! THE REASON FOR DOING THIS IS THAT THERE WERENT ANY OTHER QUALITY GAMES AT THE TIME, AND WE DIDNT WANT TO WAIT FOR PUTTING OUT THIS MENU AND KEEP YOU WAITING NOW WOULD WE? MAYBE I COULD USE OUR LITTLE BAND UP THERE IN THE PICTURE AS AN EQUALIZER SOMEDAY HAHAAHAAA THAT WOULD LOOK PRETTY COOL WOULDNT IT! OH YES, WHILE I AM AWAY A FRIEND WILL BE LEAVING HIS HD HERE FOR MY BBS TO USE, SO THERE WILL BE HUNDRED NINETY FIVE MEGS ONLINE AT THE AARDVARK!

THE NINETY FIVE LINE, SIX GIGABYTE SYSTEM IS GOING DOWN IN JUST 7 DAYS! OH WELL, WHAT CAN YOU DO... THEY ARE SELLING ALL THEIR EQUIPMENT INCLUDING THE 100 IBMS FOR 100000 BUCKS CANADIAN! ANY BUYERS OUT THERE. HEH ANYWAY, I THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE A REALLY LONG SCROLL, BUT THINGS ARENT WORKING OUT THAT WAY. I UNFORTUNATELY WILL HAVE TO LET YOU GO, SO UNTIL NEXT TIME, TAKE CARE TIME TO WRAP ....................................
