Atari ST Cracktro [019] Alien Cracking Formation [ACF] from Tangram

I will not have too many stories to write for 'CrackTros' (Demo screens that appeared as introductions to cracked video games) as I did not have very many of these back in the day.  I am mainly recording these now because they are art, and need to be preserved.  I will also attempt to transcribe the scroll text, which will be posted in a companion blog entry linked above.

Dragon's Lair III - The Curse of Mordread - Atari ST [014] PlayThru AutoPlay

Title Screen
Think of this capture as a movie, it (and the other five ReadySoft titles) were all run from a hard disk installation to avoid the disk swapping nightmare otherwise present on the ST.

I don't have too much to say about this game.  I did not have it in the 90s, unlike Dragon's Lair, Space Ace, and Dragon's Lair II: Timewarp, so going through it now was the first play experience for me.

Atari ST Demo / Intro [001] 3D Corp - Intro #2

Main Screen
My exposure to smaller demos was quite limited. Mainly I was exposed to the MegaDemos, like the Cuddley Demos, and Mindbomb, so I will have very few experiences to share for theses demos/intros.  I do plan to transcribe the scroll text, which will be posted in a companion blog entry linked above.
