General software. From trouble with the Banyan Tree to OCP Art Studio, post any general software chat here. Could include game challenges...

Sidewinder II [Mastertronic Plus]
Cautious and moderately paced vertical shoot'em up.

Satan [Dinamic Software, 1989]
A strange Dinamic game in which it's hard to die and there aren't colourful but clashy graphics, they're in fact small and monochrome.
Your character is an agile guy jumping, clinging and climbing with ease while collecting power up's and annihilating dozen of monsters.
It's playable. Dunno if it can hold one's interest for long though.

That sums it up nicely. It's pretty good, but to me it seems like an accomplished tech demo with placeholder graphics, waiting for the artists to give it a personality.

Fired up my (so far) trusty +2, and played the Cronosoft release of Buzzsaw+ until the level 4 cutebots handed me my arse.

Fridge Frenzy by Bug-Byte.

An bit irritating Manic Miner-like game by Bug-Byte. You have to move quickly due to the limited time to pass the screen.

A not-bad version of the arcade classic Panic, which I love in every version.

Still can't get past the first level of The Untouchables. 70% is my top completion score.
