Help Finding a Game

Postby jruark56 » Sat Dec 16, 2017 11:34 pm

I am trying to find a game for the ST. I played it back in the day. The game was for a helicopter to drop bombs into a canyon and destroy bricks below. If I remember correctly the helicopter would come in from the right on one pass and then come in from the left on the next pass. I think the game used a joystick to release the bombs, but I could be mistaken. The game was in color and I suspect it was in low resolution. You would lose a helicopter if you did not destroy a brick on each pass. You had a limited number of helicopters.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Sounds a bit like Canyon Bomber for the Atari 2600. I don't remember such a thing on the ST.

Skarg,
I can definitely confirm that this game was played on the ST. It may have been on some public domain disk i had back in the day.
Thanks for the reply, though. I was beginning to wonder if anyone would do more than just look at the topic.
I am still actively searching for this game and will certainly report back here, if I find it.

tteclado,
Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, the graphics for that game are waaay too fancy for the game I remember. This game was very simple graphically. Just some canyon walls, a set of different colored blocks at the bottom, and the darn helicopter flying above the canyon walls.
The entry on Atarimania does trigger an idea, though. This game may have been an 8-bit translation up to the ST. I just can't remember that far back.
