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, whilst flicking ST Format #58, I noticed a review of a homebrew game called Crime Wave, by Dillon Agoma from 1994. It appears similar to Super Cars and makes use of hardware scrolling! However, the reviewer wasn't too pleased with the controls so perhaps it was a work in progress?

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

June 2017 update: Sadly, I never received a reply to my letter :-(
