Crime Wave


You know me, I love my Atari STe and I'm always on the hunt for games, demos and programs that make use of the enhanced hardware. Today, I was flicking through ST Format #58 and noticed a review of a homebrew game called Crime Wave, by Dillon Agoma from 1994. It appears quite similar to Super Cars and makes use of hardware scrolling! However, the reviewer didn't seem too pleased with the controls so perhaps it was a work in progress?

This is a tough one to research because the name is the same as a commercial US Gold game and no PD library stocked it because Crime Wave was only available directly from the author. Yep, I've searched online but sadly found no downloads or other information but I've written a letter so let's hope he still in that house and has a copy to share!

Feb 2017 update: Sadly, I never received a reply to my letter.
July 2017 update: Dillon has replied and thinks the disks are in storage!! :-)
Oct 2017 update: It's not looking good but he hopes the disks are in his attic.
