Retro Software 3x Atom: Chuckie Egg/Galaforce/JJ

Post by Samwise » Tue Nov 13, 2012 11:12 pm

For anyone who hasn't picked up on it already, this weekend has seen the release of three of Kees' best Atom titles to date, over at www.retrosoftware.co.uk and cements his status as our leading Atom coding guru.

Chuckie Egg - arguably, one of the greatest 8-bit ports of one of the greatest 8-bit games. This is awesome!

Galaforce - the legendary BBC/Electron shoot-em-up makes it to the Atom, and does so in amazing style!

Image

Jungle Journey - David Boddie's homegrown title is back-ported with great aplomb, to permit Atom owners the wonderful treat of escaping the jungle, like their Electron counterparts!

If you haven't already got an Atom setup, or Atomulator running. This is the excuse you've been waiting for. :) I really can't overstate how great these titles are.

Sam.
