Thanks, I removed AIM, MSN, Game Gavel and ICQ. I don't know anyone who uses ICQ here in the US still, although maybe some people do. I'll have to look at Yahoo Messenger. We'll have Discord partially integrated in the forum when I update the forum to a significantly newer version. Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Instagram and other social media profile fields would be useful, the new software has much better integration with them.
Haha, yeah there weren't even all that many hard drive runnable games until the last few years of 'life'. Seemed for some reason the ST developers, after the initial years that it was in the lead of the Amiga, just did mostly lazy ports and most were not big enough to warrant even making them work from a hard drive.
It would be difficult for me to even think of some games that were not solely playable from disk, until patched many years later.
When I was into the Atari ST "back in the day", not many people had hard drives. I eventually got one, I think maybe a Supra Drive. I now have a Mega ST and a Megafile drive, but I've never hooked them up. But hard drives weren't that common here in the US for people who had STs, except for the more hardcore enthusiasts who could outlay the cash for one.
Since this game was never released, I would call them reproductions as opposed to bootlegs. He has purchased games directly from the AtariAge Store to sell on eBay, including various 5200 games. If you see any AtariAge homebrews in his eBay listings, they are legitimate copies of the games.
Two of my favorite party games are Fall Down and Assembloids.
Fall Down is an excellent and highly competitive simultaneous two-player game, great fun! We ran a tournament one year at a show using Fall Down. And Assembloids is an easy to learn but challenging and frenetic puzzle game, pretty unique on the 2600, and very well done (and in only 4K!) Two games I'm glad to recommend to others.
