Weird game where you are some sort of dinosaur lizard thing searching for something or other and firing off a laser at enemy creatures. I always thought this game was too hard. Some rooms had a skull in them, and would freeze you on the spot with no way to save yourself. Back in 1986 when I first got my ST, I had a copy of this game. I never could track down an original copy at my local Atari dealers. I finally found one on a website recently and bought it complete in packaging. It comes with a rather fancy set of maps, on 9 glossy cards that you have to arrange in the order suggested at the beginning game screen. With the maps it seems easier to avoid trapped rooms. Maybe I can complete it now. I remember this being one of the very first ST games, it sort of reminded me of a poor man's Adventure (2600 game), but with better graphics, and far less coherent gameplay. With so few ST games out at the time though I wasn't complaining.

Hi, first point to notice about lands of havoc is not that I've played many hours with it but that it was one of the only games that I could play with, because it worked in monochrome mode. That made a great game in a 640x400 screen size ! The game was really difficult as it was, if I remember correctly, adapted from sinclair QL, but not correctly speeded down. Or maybe it was due to VBL speed being 70Hz instead of 50Hz/60Hz in color ? I don't know, but it was really hard, and I was hopefully young enough to be able to play during...well lots of time. I've never finished the game, if there is an end to it, let me know...

I never played this one. The most interesting fact is that thsiw as teh very first game for the ST. Steve Bak wrote in on a Sinclair QL and ported it via ST Basic. One could buy this gamei n storey before you could even buy an ST.
