Gamebase ST allows any game to be readily available to play in the emulator of your choice by just clicking on the game name, thus removing all the fuss of manually loading the emulator and game by hand. Gamebase ST's interface allows you to browse the games in your database. When you click a game, you get to see a two or more screenshots of the game in action, along with options to play the game and listen to the game's music. Various fields in a Gamebase database hold information on the games, such as Publisher, Year Published, Musician, Programmer, Genre, Number of players.

The Overscan Demo was the last production on the Atari ST which was never imaged because of the format used. It has crossed the ages without being spread very well, so just a few people had it in 2004. Now it has been actually imaged and patched by the author himself! So it can be easily stored on a real floppy, or it can be ran with an emulator. Steem users have to employ version 2.61 of the emulator, since version 3.0 doesn't display the graphics of the demo. That same author Paul Simoes has also published some unreleased goodies, mainly devoted to replay routs.

Gamebase ST is a brand new database front-end for Atari ST games! The single goal of The Gamebase ST Project is to gather, collect, catalogue and make available, the very best versions of all Atari ST games and other resources across the Web.
Please visit http://www.gamebasest.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/ for more information!
Please note that the first release is scheduled next weekend and so the link to download the database does not work!

If you like snooker, you'll love this game! It's as simple as that. This is definitely one of the best games created for the ST! And I think it is still the best snooker sim, even today! I know Archer Maclean is working on a follow up for the PC. I wonder how it'll turn out!
