Is there a decent crossword game for the ST?

Postby STcomp » Sun Sep 28, 2008 11:41 pm

I am looking for a crossword game, one that is easy to use and will run in medium res. The only one I have found so far (times crossword and sun crossword vol 1) has a terrible interface. If anyone has any tips I would appreciate it.

Not commerical ones but I have vague memories of some PD efforts that were quite good. Will see if I can find them.
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

Some "old timers" might recall CROSSWORD CREATOR and WORD SEARCH CREATOR, two puzzle making utilities I developed and marketed for the Atari ST platform back in the early 1990's under the software company name of FAIR DINKUM TECHNOLOGIES. They were pretty popular in the day and quite nice utilities that worked in both high and medium resolution. I also marketed a little tool called CRYPTOGRAPHER designed to create and solve simple encrypted messages. I wrote these in compiled GFA Basic. Dearly loved that language. Also contributed several articles and programs to STart magazine. Does anyone remember BATTLESHIP? :) Ah, those were the days....
