Atari ST Cracktro [062] The Exceptions [TEX] from Arkanoid



Here is the TEX 'cracktro' to Arkanoid, but this release was more than just that.  TEX converted and included the Commodore 64 title music. They also included an editor for the game, so this cracktro is sort of an ultimate edition!

Atari ST Demo / Intro [026] First Demo by Anticopyright Association [ACA]



Here is ACA's first Atari ST demo.  They previously did Commodore 64 demos, so they were not totally new to the scene.  This is a simple screen. I do like their logo; it is a nice piece of pixel art!

Atari ST Cracktro [060] Anticopyright Association [ACA] from Xenon II


Here is a nice and simple cracktro attached to Xenon II from Anticopyright Association or ACA, formerly active on the Commodore 64 before coming over to the Atari ST.  I always loved the sample the Bitmap Brothers used when loading the first, most likely totally useless, disk of Xenon II!

Atari ST Demo / Intro [024] A Trick Of The Light by The Conceptors


Here is a nice intro I stumbled across with a very neat 3D effect and scroller.  Unfortunately, my real hardware did not play the demo correctly, so an emulator was used for the capture.

Gauntlet - Arcade [007] Shortplay PlayThru Levels 1-26



Here is a playthru of an emulation of the arcade's original quarter eater: Gauntlet.  Four player co-operative simultaneous gameplay, with limited health, and an easy player opt-in design made this game a favorite in arcades at release.  I can remember line ups at this machine in the local Time Warp arcade.
