I played this once at a friend’s house, I think it was probably on a cover disk from one of the magazines (ST Format/ST User/Zero… any others I’ve forgotten?) but it may have been a public domain disk. My memory has me playing it around the same time we played this other awesome game called ‘Maze’ (first person tag with monoliths) and that was on the cover of ST User 68 in October 1991. This one was a single screen puzzle game, with the gameplay based around matching colours in some way that I can’t remember. I want to say it involved changing coloured fuses, or there were glass bulbs and electricity involved in some way but that may be a red herring. The thing I mostly remember it for was the really catchy music, which at the time sounded to me like a chip tune version of a pop song I already knew (like the Thompson Twins or something). It may not have been a cover disk but it certainly wasn’t a retail game. I can’t for the life of me remember how we got hold of PD disks, but we must have done somehow because I used to play a few. Sinister Development’s Asteroids was a big favourite, no idea how I got it.
from the author of the ocean, us gold, and spectrum trilogy Chris Wilkins (boyo?) has started a facebook group, with the intent of garnering interest in a book about the Atari ST. Just thought I'd mention it... because i cant link to it...
