This would be a most welcome edition to the ever expanding Jaguar library.

Another update: Super Thief was started by Palace and by all accounts was pretty well advanced (and good) when it was shelved. I am not sure of the programmer (Possibly Sean Griffith from Magic Pockets/ Rise of the Robots fame, but don't quote me on that) but the graphics were done by Dan Malone (Wh...

Re: Atari ST hardware based coin-ops

Thread bump...

Hmmn....

I discovered a claim that there were at least 2 Prototype ST coin ops being shown by Steve Bak..1 running Leatherneck and the other Xenon, intended to power Mastertronic 's Arcadia cabinets, but the Amiga hardware was far better suited so used instead.

A dissapointment more than a disaster, but given the commercial state of the ST games market at that time, hardly surprising. An STE version wouldn't of made commercial sense, ST conversion probably warranted in terms of if it's done enough folks will buy it, but don't tie people up for too long, we...

Re: ROBOCOP 2. Amiga or ST?

As a huge Robocop (Film and Coin-Op) fan, i found the Home games a very mixed bag. The Original Robocop was superb on a 128K ZX Spectrum, C64 version looked nice, but bugged, not found a console version i like. With Robocop II...the coin-op i found to be awful.

Re: Gauntlet II vs Ranarama (ST) - Which Is Best?
