New version of the Atari Legend website now online!

December 6, 2020 by ST Graveyard

News illustration image We have just released a brand new version of the Atari Legend website. This version is able to show different releases of the games, in much more detail, as well as downloads. Currently, the DB team is working on making the first games available.

The whole site has been recoded by our developer lynXX using Bootstrap, but keeping thru to the original design. This way, we hope the project will be more accesible to other future coders. If you want to help out, let us know.

You can also find us on GITHUB if you want to participate in the future development of the project.

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the brutal passing of my friend Sydney, known as Ultrasyd. Syd was not only a talented musician but the essence of kindness and genuine humanity.

RIP Ultrasyd

AtariLegend is now open-source

August 9, 2020 by LynXX

The code for the AtariLegend website is now open-source! It always was our desire for AtariLegend to be an open project, that's why we started sharing full database dumps in 2018. We wanted to open the code as well for a long time, but it took some time to reach that point. Today it's finally here, please find the source code on GitHub.

Contributions are welcome, and we hope that more developers will join us in continuing to improve the site. Also feel free to use GitHub to report bugs or if you have improvements ideas. And as usual please continue contributing to the database by submitting your reviews, game facts and comments!

Interview with Frank Schoonjans, creator of 3D-Calc spreadsheet

June 24, 2020 by ST Graveyard

News illustration image The Atari ST scene doesn't pay much attention to the more serious side of things, and that is a shame, because some really amazing business applications have their roots on the ST. A few weeks ago, I met Frank Schoonjans on the Atari ST Facebook group. Frank created the spreadsheet 3D-Calc on the Atari ST. This program was added to the 'Atari business pack', a software bundle by Atari BENELUX, together with That's Write and 'Astodat IV'. Globally, the program was distributed by Michtron. Join me as we take a deeper look...

Random review

This is a true classic showing what the ST is capable of. The game itself is hard and frustrating (I never ever managed to reach the boss of Level 1.) But the effects and technical brilliance of this game make it a winner!
