Oids


Oids is an adventure set in outer space where we need to rescue metallic men from captivity. However, it was capped to run at surprising 10/12fps (PAL/NTSC) which is shockingly low because the Atari ST can do far better. So Peter Putnik has developed an upgrade that runs up to an eye-popping 25/30fps which will deliver lovely scrolling with smoother gameplay and more responsive controls. This certainly adds a whole new dimension to this iconic game.
