Menace


Menace is a great shoot 'em up and one of the few Psygnosis games I like but what's up with that YELLOW ship? I've always hated it so began to wonder if it was possible to change it white... I contacted Atari ST wizard Peter Putnik and he later came back with a solution. As you can see, our spaceship has a brand new paint job!

The caveat is the effect on the status panel, due to their use of the 16-colour palette... but try not to lose too much sleep over that! Of course, the game itself remains exactly the same - but with a white ship. I must thank Peter for being gracious to take on this request and his version of Menace is the only one I will play.

  1. Always remember that you have to shoot the floating [1000] dropped when you destroy and entire enemy battalion to get it to change to other weapons. Weapons are cumulative, not replacements, so it gets fun, especially with the unlimited shield trainer. =)
