520 days later

March 5, 2019 by ST Graveyard

520 is a magical number in the world of Atari. Today, exactly 520 days ago, we released the new Atari Legend project. And this calls for celebration. I was hoping to have something nice for you all in store, but lately, we all have been very busy and real life has been getting in the way.

Still, a lot of great stuff happened during the past year and a half. For me personally, the biggest surprise occured in November 2017, a month after the initial release. Nico joined our development team. He has been a big help so far, teaching us how to properly code. We have had the pleasure to work with some great teams as well, releasing nice, new productions. The DB guys have been busy, adding more games and detailed info. And we have had the opportunity to talk to some very interesting people and share this with you all. 10 interviews and 19 reviews were released, which I personally still really enjoy doing. For this year, we have some big plans ahead.

I do hope to at least make some of them reality, so stay tuned. I would like to thank you all for the support. Stay Atari!

News illustration image After a break of a few weeks, we are proud to offer you again a new release: Esprits Maths CE1-CE2 volume 1.

This time it is an educational game signed by the company Lankhor. Sorry for the non-French readers, but this game is so rare that we couldn't miss it.

The music is signed by Epic of TMS crew and it's an unpublished track.

More to come very soon!

The Replicants are back and they have a great gift for you!

December 25, 2018 by Brume

News illustration image As a last gift for Christmas, we are very proud to offer you a new release by... The Replicants! Yes, the famous French team is back, that's not a fake!

So what is the name of the game? The Replicants present Safari Guns, a French game that was never properly cracked. Orion did a fantastic job and he also multi-trained the game. You now have unlimited lives, but also max points per pictures, level selection, etc.
Also please note the game is now working on Atari Falcon, too! Yes, it has been tested on the bird machine and it works like a charm!

As good news never comes alone, their first hack after 25 years is a cross-release: it's signed by our friends of Hemoroids, but also by... Atari Legend! We are very honored to see our name associated with the famous Replicants, indeed.
The great intro has been coded by Kelly X of HMD, while Dieu made the brilliant graphics. Also don't forget the new tune composed by Dma-Sc from sector One. We really hope you'll enjoy the result as we do each time we see this Xmas intro.

Enough spoken! Time to download the game and wish a good comeback to the Replicants! Also don't miss their next release, which is an even more unexpected game.

Random review

The chiptunes by David Whittaker are really nothing special in my book. Even though I'm a fan of the man, this game features a very mediocre version of the Bond theme. But there are some really nice sound effects present. Just listen to the chopper in the first level. It sounds so real. I love that.

Did you know?

Did you know that there are some love messages in the TOS ROMs of the ST? In fact you can find the strings "Dave StaUgas loves Bea Hablig" and "JIM LOVES JENEANE" in all TOS ROMs with version number 1.xx and 2.0x!
