ffs how tight were 'st action' to only rate this timeless classic only 68%. the reviewers should of been sacked for such poor work. i f**kin' loved this game and still do. the minimalistic grafix and sound tied in well with its amazing gameplay. in fact, if this game were a woman i would of had my ring on her finger within the first few hours of meeting. back of the net!

There's one Emulator that was designed specifically to run it...do a search on "Atari ST Emulator" and "Oids" and you're bound to find it.

does this run on any of the emulators?

OIDS drew a line between games that were fun because there was nothing else, and games that were fun because they were spectacular in every possible way.. and then took one giant leap over that line.

Ah nothing like killing those little oids in a variety of amusing ways.

This was THE game that ate up literal days of my college dorm time. I must have shipped countless classes and study time completing this game again and again. THe level editor is easy to use and the game is addictive to the nth degree.

I can't believe no one has commented about this game yet! One of the very best for this computer, this game is a cross between Asteriods, Caverns of Mars, Lunar Lander, and Choplifter. Mostly it was like Choplifter in space. Included a map maker utility, this game was super fun! If you don't get any other ST game, get THIS!
