In recent month's, there has been something of a surge in interest of ye oldie Atari ST games, getting a new burst of life on the Atari Jaguar, with the likes of Xenon II, Custodian etc being officially sourced and converted and a good few others being unofficially converted....
But i never seem to hear of what was done many years ago, bringing ST/Amiga games to the GBA, ST code being used in many forms from just the graphics, to source code itself.
I was reminded of this, as i dug out my trusty GBA Micro and games, when i stumbled apon Thrust Advance which is based on the ST version and Qwak! which is based on the Amiga version.
But there have been a lot more, some sadly never finished it seems, but likes of:
Another World, Deflektor, Flood, Goldrunner, Airball, Eliminator, CarVup etc all have roots in the Atari ST (as does PS1/Saturn Bubble Bobble)...yet you never seem to hear people mention them...or thank the ST
The person behind many of them was the same guy responsible for converting Robinsons Requiem from PC to Jaguar and Ishar III from PC to Falcon it seems.
