Want more Box Art?

Okay, it's time for another hardcopy trip down memory lane and I can remember lifting this one of the shop's shelves. At first, it was only to admire its gorgeous artwork with medieval imagery that is so captivating - I love those lush colours which are in stark contrast to the brutal warriors. I think this is great artwork and quite scary too, so it perfectly illustrates the savage gameplay ahead. So, if you feel brave enough, shall we open the box?

Onslaught was programmed by Chris Hinsley, he of Custodian fame, and is a horizontally-scrolling hack and club 'em all to death battle. This exciting platformer has us killing everything in sight with massive explosions that beautifully light up the colourful backdrops and grungy medieval scenery. The music is perfectly suited for the theme and accompanied by meaty sound samples for all the grunts, booms, and metallic weapon clangs!!

This is a tough game that requires lots of practice so stick with it. Onslaught is superb with tons of colours, loud effects, and gameplay stuffed with brutal carnage!! This is a fun action kill 'em all and one of my favourite Atari ST games. Here are a few screenshots to drool over before getting to the all too necessary download links...
