Pole Position


We all love the hear about new games in development for the best 16-bit platform on the planet and here is Pole Position for the Atari STe by Jonathan Thomas. It's been a long time coming but the latest release is now available to download (please, ignore the flickering in my capture - this bug has now been fixed).

Our game features super fast framerates, lots of colours, sprite scaling, Blitter usage and sound effects ripped directly from the actual arcade machine - played using the DMA coprocessor! In fact, Jonathan has reverse-engineered the official programming code to provide an authentic racing experience, which cannot be beaten.

Pole Position. Out now for the Atari STe.
Take a few minutes to think about that... Now, go and play this incredible racer!! :-)
