Escape from the Planet of the Robot Monsters - Atari ST

I loved this game, which if memory serves came in one of the Atari STe bundles - never actually saw it in the arcades, so I can't say how good the conversion was.  It was a shoot-em-up with puzzle elements, and when you finished a stage you hopped in your spacecraft, navigated a maze section which either got you killed (fairly frequently, I admit) or took you to a new level - with three options depending which way you went.

Everything about this game was weird - from the music and sound effect to the graphics (quircky quasi-isometric view) and the gameplay itself.  But at the same time, it was all rather wonderful, in an odd sort of way.  There's never been another game quite like it - or if there has, I don't know about it!  Sadly however, it's yet another one of those games that I never did quite manage to complete...
