Video - Shufflepuck Cafe - Atari ST

I played this game incessently when I was younger until I could beat every player in the game (and that was no mean feat, let me tell you!) - sadly now that I'm older my reflexes aren't up to it, but at least I can still beat the first handful of opponents, including Biff Raunch.

Stunt Car Racer gameplay videos - Atari ST

Thanks to the joy of the STEEM emulator (for which I have only just found out about the SSE update - got to try this out!), I videoed myself racing a couple of tracks - perhaps the pressure of knowing it was recorded was all too much though, I managed to lose both races! Duh... (what a great game though!)

At some stage I will upload a video of myself actually racing well... :-o

Atari ST Gaming Videos

I've finally started taking my YouTube channel seriously... one of the things I'll be doing is uploading Atari ST gaming videos.  I'll post them here too but in the meantime, here's the link.

Buggy Boy (Atari ST)

Sometimes a game you remember quite fondly just doesn't stand the test of time.   Though it does quite well in that it's not simply a race against time as most of its contemplates, it struggles with bland graphics that don't give you much sense of speed.   The sound effects aren't much better.  From memory (not that reliable) it's pretty standard for an ST coin-op conversion at the time.  In later years some of them would get much better.
