I tried Columbia in EightyOne. It's almost impossible. That's a hard game.

Hi Res defender (very flickery), even a porno game. This is quite a treasure trove. I do wish the controls were anything other than cursor keys however.

The covers of Defender and Columbia were designed by Manuel by hand, using only ballpoint pens

Yes, especially at 50Hz Zeddys. For better gameplay, set the EO to 60Hz (NTSC). Remember, the games was developed at a 60Hz machine (TK82C).


Versions of Atlantida and Columbia colourized for the Chrome interface have been made available here:
