The best game of all time......I must have wrecked many a joystick with that slamming technique needed to lock the fire. I have tried the pc version but it is not the same.....no sound and the beasties are too close to the bottom compared to the st version. I remember getting to 249 a couple of times but without instant hot bullets level 250 was a definite no no! I hate to think how many hours I must have logged playing it!

One of the all-time greatest games for the Atari ST. What more can I say?

This was a game we played over and over back then very fast I hope it runs in Steem but as I am an Xp user I still have none working disk I do have tons of magazine disks hoping to convert them to images so they run in Steem then i make them available on one of the FTP sites listed in links

I am propably one of the few people that did not like this game at all. For me it was a shoot em up in a box/screen. Never did understood why people love it so much even after all these years. Still, I don't blame them, I might be wrong.

Fantastic game, and as Yak is a totally cool bloke this has now been made freeware specifically for use in emulators. :)

One of the best games ever! I really love the whole trippy psychedelic style of it, the rizlas, the poo, the ozric tentacle...! Minter is god!

Much better than Robotron, especially the toilet :). Only got to the 130th level so far. Jeff Minter is a diamond geeza! Need to get a copy of this for an emulator!

I got my best ever score on this after having consumed a certain hallucinogen! Excellent, simple, addictive fun!

Jeff Minter is a dude. Classic game very simple but highly addictive. Great samples and wacky graphics. If you don't get any fun out of this you might as well become a tibetan monk.

Not only is this superb, but the Yak is Back! Check out http://www.llamasoft.co.uk for new games from the man himself.

Totally mental! Top notch joystick waggling action both versions (512 and 1024) are superb, this has to be one of the greatest games ever.

One of the fastest and most enjoyable shoot-em-ups I've ever played. so simple but so addictive. Jeff Minter is one of the best games makers I've ever read an article about (narrows it down a bit) (did a damn fine vlm too ;) )
