Ye Olde Spectrum Game (and Atari ST PD game) names


[link to this post]
 
I've been trying to remember the name of an old Spectrum game for many years now, whereby you had to protect your characters from bubbles - whilst you moved your character in the direction of a pointer (and which also denotes the direction of your weapons fire). It was a top-down game.

Can anyone put a name to the description ?

On the same sort of thing : There was an Atari ST PD turn-based, multi-player, strategy game which I was wondering if anyone knows the name of. It came on a blue PD disk, crashed a lot, but was very addictive (when you could actually play it). In it, you could move (and create) bulldozers (for creating factories), planes, tanks etc etc

The Atari ST forums only came up with on (incorrect - they suggested a sci-fi game), which wasn't it.

No, unfortunately - it was a top-down game...

No, as that has direct character control.

Why is it so important to know.........I have done some searches in Google and came up with quite a few puzzle games and the closest i could match would be from a later system like a Nintendo Snes and that was

You will have to do a search for every game release on the Atari St and painfully go through the ones that have potential on youtube or something.

Blimey I can't remember many games at all that I used to play on my Atari. I think R-Type and Crime Does Not Pay are the only ones I remember. What was that stupid one with the baby called? I remember having a shoe box full of floppy disk games haha.

Unfortunately being a PD game, most websites don't list it frown
