FTL Games

FTL are: Bruce Webster, Nancy Holder and Wayne Holder

I'm often asked what are the best Atari ST games and sometimes what are my own personal Top 10. This is pretty much an impossible question to answer because, no matter how much I might try, the list changes almost daily. There are simply far too many excellent games to choose from but, with a little push, I can think of two worthy titles... What about the magnificent Oids and, of course, the mighty classic - Dungeon Master!

I've been in the middle of writing something for both games for several months now and it then dawned on me that FTL is probably my favourite company. Sure, they released few titles but what they did produce are absolute gems and nobody in their right mind could ever deny that. The previously mentioned games are outright legends which broke the mould to create a fresh groundwork for so many future games.

They also released a couple other games which I've not (yet) played and there is also RVP (unreleased) which I need to know more about. FTL are true retro gaming legends who were at their very best on the Atari ST.

AtariMania has everything listed in their database and Wikipedia has lots more information.

    1. Yeah I know mate. This is an old post I should probably update... Basically, I never got to play Sundog back in the day. TBH, I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it back then anyhow so it's no loss in that respect for me. However, I should download it and add it to my To Do list for the website... a list which is growing daily! lol.
      One day mate, one day. :)
