Running this website means that I play tons of Atari ST games - which is hard work but somebody's gotta do it!!! (please don't hate me lol). Now, quite often, I will revisit games that I remembered being good at and, today, I thought it would be a neat idea to play the amazing Anarchy by Psygnosis [Wayne Smithson/WJS].

This is basically a Defender ripoff, but one which is tremendously fast and exciting running at a jaw-dropping 50/60fps (I think WJS didn't even use the Blitter Chip!!). This is furiously good fun and one hell of a Defender "clone".

However, as I get older, I've begun to realise that some games are simply too fast for my reactions to cope with: and Anarchy is my nightmare!! Yep, I was all over the place wondering just what was going on. In the end, I gave up and enjoyed blasting everything and hoping for the best. Which meant that I didn't last too long...

... So, what is your "Anarchy" ??
