We are happy tp present some new games for the Classic ATARIs in an
english version:

MINESWEEPER

The classic game, that is well known on PC's and ST's is now available
for the 8 bit ATARIs. It has different levels, a high score table and
can be controlled by joystick or ST-mouse.

GLAGGS

Unfortunately ATARI never presented a version of Klax for the 8 bit 
ATARIs, although it was a big success on the ST and Lynx. Here is our
program that is more than just a compensation.
Glaggs is one of the most colorful programs you ever have seen on any
8 bit ATARI.

Rubber Ball

Move a small rubber ball through the dangerous levels of an air conditioning
system. Perfect fine scrolling and digitized music are waiting for you.


All games are written in QUICK, the new programming language for your
8 bit computer (not a single machine code routine was used!).

To test the games you can look at the demos available at archive.umich.edu:
- QIKDEMO4.ARC is the demo of Minesweeper
- QIKDEMO5.ARC is a demo of Glaggs
- RUBBERBA.ARC is a demo of Rubberball



The German or International (English) versions of the games and QUICK
are available from:

PPP
Postfach 1640
W-7518 Bretten
Germany


In GB and Ireland you can get the games and QUICK directly from:

Dean Garraghty
62 Thomson Ave
Balby
Doncaster
DN4 0NU
England



Please note: Some of the games may not work on NTSC or 1200XL computers. Try
the demos and tell me the results, please.
