Branch Software sprouts new titles
A new company is producing low-cost, high-quality software for the 8-bit market. Branch Software has released several new titles, all designed to work on any 48K Atari 8-bit computer with DOS 2.0 or 2.5 installed.
In Blockaid you use your shield to defend yourself against the fiery ball of Zieweunthu. After learning how to pronounce Zieweunthu, you can destroy all the colorful blocks and advance into the next of 40 rooms. The game includes a Blockaid Construction Set, so you can custom design additional screens. The game even lets you insert your custom screens into the Blockaid game for future generations to enjoy.
Trivia Quiz is the improved version of the public-domain trivia game of the same name. The new version is filled with ready-to-use questions, with more companion data disks on their way.
In Agent 16, a role-playing game, three giant text adventures are stored on one disk. The central character, Agent 16, is a supersecret spy that tumbles from one deadly challenge to another. A special menu loader lets you see all the instructions and background information needed to play Agent 16.
All of the new titles are currently available and have a list price of less than $20.
