Oids


Oids is a brilliant adventure set in outer space rescuing little metallic men from captivity and is quite similar to Thrust or Grav. However, it was capped to run at surprising 10fps which is shockingly low and the Atari ST can do much better so Peter Putnik has just made public an upgrade that runs up to an eye-popping 25fps!! This delivers far nicer scrolling with smoother gameplay and more responsive actions adding a whole new dimension to the gameplay.

Oids is iconic. A truly wonderful game and today it just got even better!!
