This is game which was unknown for me in my early Atari years. I like it's graphic and atmosphere. And it works actually faster than DM, thanx to asm code.
Not so good part is disk related - too much disk swaps, and not enough disk change test :D
In any case, remake would be very nice :angel:

Cheers for the feedback :)
The disk swaps were truly awful - and sorry also for the green blob bugs.

When I finish my current projects I'll have to prototype a reworked version ... :)

I bought another Xenomorph on ebay... AtariZoll can you tell wich version this is? working/xenomorph_other_disks.7z (SCP)

It seems to been copied to re-used disks, this means "disk B" is doublesided and i presume it has data from previous copy on it? I am not sure the disk are 100% working but i can play it at beginning on my ST and converting to STX worked and playd in Steem.
I removed the label and it has been a Hit Squad game and also a Shapes and Colours (twice.. once for Amiga ond once for Atari ST)... or maybe they first used the disk to practice printing on it :mrgreen:

The Program disk used to be Captain Blood... i never seen that CB label before though:

The past life of disks :-)

Sent by my Note III
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

Anyone able to repack PPera's files to a FDD (820k)? He has the 1.4 Xenomorph with no disk checks etc but it needs a HDD. If re-packed it might be played from FDD on an ST with Gotek drive!?!?

I missed this post then. Checked it now. It is Version 1.4 and is OK. Compared with mine files and matches.
Indeed reused disks. There is some French txt. on Side B of program disk for instance.
