Following on from Deathbringer, the next piece of wonderful Atari ST Pixel Art is Firebird's Flying Shark which is a great example of 16-bit artistry. Just look at the title screen with its sinister face as it flys over the lush landscape. Yep, this screen is superb and so are the in-game graphics with gorgeous landscapes and sprites.
I remember getting this game on ST/Amiga Format cover disk back in my college days - much to the envy of my Miggy mate!! It's actually a pretty faithful representation of the coin-op with great graphics, ace music and excellent gameplay. The play area doesn't slide left/right (like in the arcades) but that's not required due to our wide resolution. I personally think Firebird released a cracker and this is a blast on the Atari ST. You will love it!!
