RARE Barbarian, Crazy Cars, Enduro Racer, Wizball, Rampage for Atari ST - NEW:
This is State of the Art - 5 Star Pack by Ocean for Atari ST.
It is NEW, shrink-wrapped.
In this game you play the role of a barbarian who must navigate his way through dangerous dungeons. The game is played from a third person side scrolling perspective and also has platform jumping parts to it. The barbarian is controlled by using left and right on the joystick to move and up and down is used to scroll through the various commands at the bottom of the screen. When a command is highlighted pressing fire will perform that action thus saving on extra buttons being needed to play. There are two weapons at your disposal. A sword which you start the game with and later a bow which is handy for long range attacks. There are many traps to avoid and various monsters who have different attack patterns.
Crazy Cars Description:
Starting Titus' racing series of third-person perspective racing games, Crazy Cars encompasses the American Cross Country Prestige Cars Race. This takes in several parts of the USA, in several powerful cars. Initially you have a Porsche 911 Turbo in your hands, but this can later be upgraded to a Lamborghini and then a Ferrari. There are other cars on the road, which you must avoid contact with. Bumps and divots in the road throws the car off course, as does contact with any of the roadside barriers. Each race must be completed within the time limit.
Enduro Racer Description:
Enduro Racer is a racing game featuring dirt bikes. It is very similar to its immediate predecessor Hang-On, originating on the same arcade hardware, but besides moving the action off-road, there are also several gameplay changes and additions.
As in Hang-On, the game is seen from behind the player's biker. Besides the usual turns in the road, the tracks now also feature hills and declines. Obstacles include not only other bikers and trees or signs at the side of the road, but also rocks or other objects on the road. Logs or sand barriers crossing the road can be jumped over, launching the bike into the air. The controls not only allow for steering, accelerating and braking, but also for performing a wheelie for a speed increase at the expense of maneuverability.
In typical arcade style, the race takes place from checkpoint to checkpoint, with the line having to be crossed within a time limit to continue. All in all, there are five different stages, with environments including grasslands, two different deserts, a forest lake and a beach.

If you only buy one coin-op arcade game conversion this year on the current turn out from companies such as Ocean, US Gold, and Elite go for Electric Dreams- Enduro Racer is tops.

This is without doubt the greatest and most accurate coin-op conversion I've seen. It captures all the playability and realism of the original and is one of the most compelling and addictive game I've played. This may sound a little over the top but this game has to be seen to be believed. I did not think the Speccy was capable of such a game. Buy it. It's just about the best there is!

Well done Activision! At last someone’s come up with a very realistic arcade conversion — you feel as though you’re actually sat on a bike, hurtling along a race track at over a hundred miles an hour. The graphics are amazing, hills, dips, jumps, trees, rocks and stones are all well designed and excellently animated. One little quirk though, I wasn’t happy with the annoying tune which plays while you’re racing — it gets in the way of the engine’s revving sound. The price is a little high, but the realism makes this package well worth the money.
In Wizball the player takes the role of the friendly wizard Wiz who can turn himself into a green ball that is able to defend his world against the color-sucking enemies who have turned his once brightly colored Wizworld into a drab planet. With his trusty feline companion Catelite, the wizard will restore the colors to the world by retrieving them from defeated enemies. There are eight levels to be completed.
The player starts out as a bouncing green ball that can shoot and be put into more or less heavy rotation to move slowly or faster, physically correct through the side-scrolling levels. The first task is to upgrade the ball by shooting the first non-moving enemies, and collect the green bubbles that are left by them. In order to stand a chance against the following moving enemy waves, some upgrades are a must. First and foremost, complete control over the ball should be activated (i.e. flying through the levels), a shield sheltering the top and bottom of the player's should be acquired, and two-way fire (left/right) should be obtained.
But the extra needed to advance in Wizball is your friend Catelite who will, once summoned, take the form of a small green satellite that will imitate the ball's movement, or can be directly controlled by the player. Besides upping Wiz' fire power, Catelite is able to collect paint drops left by a certain kind of defeated enemies until the respective color pot is filled up. There's three colors available (red, green and blue), and several different combinations of them must be collected to complete a level and restore it to former colorfulness. Every color combination collected will send Wiz to a bonus stage, then to his laboratory where one of the power-ups can be made permanently.
The game also features a bunch of multi-player modes, there's even a two-player cooperative mode amongst them.

Wizball is virtually flawless. It's addictive qualities, combined with super smooth graphics and highly original gameplay make it one of the very best games to appear this year. A classic.
92/100 Crash! (Oct, 1987)
Wizball is a classic. The graphics are brilliant, despite some colour clash, and sound is excellent on the 128s (but a bit limited on the 48s). At first the bouncing is difficult to control — but once it’s mastered and you’ve picked up a few of the right icons, Wizball becomes one of the best shoot-’em-ups I’ve played for ages. It’s so polished it shines!
George, Lizzy and Ralph were just ordinary Americans, until an experiment went wrong, turning them into a Gorilla, Lizard and Werewolf respectively. Following this, the three of them plan to go round destroying buildings, and up to 3 human players can join in.
Smashing at the edges of the buildings for long enough will make them collapse. The police and military are after you, and will shoot at you, so try to destroy them (failing that, you can avoid the bullets). You will need to eat regularly, with things like plants on offer, to avoid shrinking back to being human.

Overall, Rampage is a fun game - if you're a fan of the coin op then you won't be disappointed by the C64 version at least!
89/100 ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment) (Feb, 1988)
The monsters are well animated and colourful, and the buildings have plenty of detail. The title music and sound effects are also slick and attractive. Initially control can be tricky and it's quite difficult to survive for long when playing a one player game. A classy conversion.

Rampage fans are not going to be disappointed with this one. Sure it lacks a bit of graphical polish but all of the essential game play elements that made the Bally Midway game the smash that it was in the arcades are here to play on your 64. Good fun and definitely one of the games I'll be playing on Boxing Day and long after.
