Rainbird at it again

The software publisher that brought ST users such hits as Starglider and Carrier Command has now announced the release of two more games for the Atari ST.

Virus, billed as the most infectious game ever for the Atari ST, gives players a chance to stop a poisonous menace intent on destroying the Earth. The menace is a "Seeder" that is slowly spreading spores that reproduce at an alarming rate, infecting everything they touch. The impressive three-dimensional graphics allow the player to move in any direction, including "into" and "out of" the screen. Virus lists for a low $29.95.

Space Cutter is a fast-action shoot-'em-up that also requires players to dust off their thinking caps. Players get to take their chances at piloting a spacecraft that is so powerful that no one has been allowed to pilot it before. The ship blasts through interstellar space in search of star gates, while at the same time battling off lethal spacecraft, enemy missiles and flaming asteroid belts. All this excitement can be yours for a low $29.95.
