Stario!!


Super Stario Land was released in 1995 by Top Byte and might remind you of a certain game featuring a daft Italian plumber? Yep, it's pretty darn similar but this isn't merely a cheap clone but a great game in its own right that offers fantastic entertainment. It's a delight to play with controls that are both easy and responsive so feel authentic.

The graphics scroll by at a smooth 50fps with fine attention to detail, if small by ST standards. Sound effects are pretty chirpy and suit the console style but, if you press F9, then music will play by Big Alec!

I love this game. It's like having a Nintendo on your desk, but with a keyboard! A brilliant platformer.


Stario's Christmas was released in 1996 and must rank as one of the last commercial games ever for the Atari ST. It basically offers more of the same but within a Christmassy winter wonderland and is equal in every awesome respect to the first game. Look, if you loved Super Stario Land then you're gonna drool over your presents for Stario's Christmas. Yep, two incredible platformers to play over the holidays. Merry Christmas everyone †
