List of monochrome games?

Postby Retrogamer_ST » Sun Feb 17, 2013 9:20 pm

Is there any kind of list for all games that worked or was made for the monochrome SM 124 screen? I know some games that works in monochrome mode but it would have been nice to see a complete list.

And if such list don't excist, i will probably make one myself i the near future using a well known method...

Hmm, this one works...and this one not. One more game for the list. Now i must test all the games from Rainbird...

Tiresome, but it works.

Of the commercial ones both Startgliders supported mono, most text & graphics adventure games did also, then there were monochrome only games. And what about GEM games? Most of them also work fine on monochrome.

A short list of non-commercial monochrome games is in Hatari's EmuTOS compatibility list:

Pretty sure you can search for high res games at atarimania. Actually just tried it seems harder than it should be. Search a game you know is high res then click high to find all that are listed, some 22 pages of them.

I'll add two games to the list.

SKULLDIGGERY - In my opinion the only Boulder Dash game on Atari ST that has the true feeling of the orginal Boulder Dash and even a two player mode.

SUPER BREAKOUT - One of the best break out games for the ST.

The great mono breakout game Bolo from Germany is on the list, but not Bolo Werkstatt. Make your own bolo levels.

Both is in the zip file.

One more game for the list...

MR Dash (Boulder Dash clone). Just start Dash_SW.prg to play the monochrome version.

Besides Ballerburg, there are also some other nice GEM games that work in monochrome, for example:
- Daleks
- GEM Amigo
- GEM GNU Chess
- Gobang
- GEM Nethack
- Invaders
- Patience
- Risky
- STello
- ST concentration
- Sudoku
- Yukon

(Of the already mentioned games, IMHO GEM Megaroid is the best asteroids clone.)

And few non-GEM non-commercial monochrome games than Super Breakout, for example:
- Columns
- Crystal Caves
- MidiMaze
- Pipeline
- Ramses
- Sherlock

(They're from the EmuTOS compatibility list linked above, and most are available on the normal Atari FTP sites, e.g. umich.)
