[Found: Miniblast, Suremosch] Looking for two old games (maybe Public Domain)

Hi. I am looking for two old Amiga games which I had many years ago.

One of them was a helicopter game where you had to navigate your helicopter through a cave, not colliding with the edges. Additionally you had to dodge rockets that were shot from the ground out of little rocket silos. It also was possible to destroy those silos by shooting them. I made a rough sketch of the game - but I am pretty sure that the game was only in yellow and blue and not full-coloured.


I don't know much about the second game except that the disk is labelled "Supermosh" and that my brother said you had to use different jump abilities (long jump, short jump) to navigate through a level, so it's a puzzle game I assume.

It could be possible that both games were Public Domain games. Would be great if someone knew the exact names of the games.

The first one definitely is the arcade game 'SKRAMBLE'.
I am not sure if an Amiga version exists, but I expect there was some PD games like this.

yeah, seems like it was a Skramble clone. But it's not Squamble. It was definitely a low colour game. And it was window based (workbench executable), I think.

no, I am pretty sure that it hadn't had many colours (about two distinguishable colours) - and there was a ceiling so you could destroy your helicopter quite easily.

EDIT
I think I've got the first game. At least I've found one that plays definitely like the one from back then although I was quite sure about the yellow - maybe it's an emulation problem.
The game is called "MiniBlast", I think -->

I think the image looks a lot like http://www.lemon64.com/games/details.php?ID=2940 Zeppelin, or even Airwolf, both on the C64.

Regarding the colours looking wrong, if it was in workbench were you using 1.3 or booted off a workbench disk with a custom palette? The default wb1.3 had white, blue orange and black as it's default colours so any game in a window would use those then.

I have found the other game or, differently said, I was able to copy it off the old Amiga disks.

It's called Suremosch.

Hi Grizzly and welcome back to EAB!

Would you mind to share your Suremosch image?

Thumbs up

Before we go asking the obvious, I'd like to say Grizzly a HUGE thanks for coming back here! Most don't...instead let people guess the following years to keep them busy So that's really a great burden you're taking from us that way!

Yes, I uploaded it to a filehoster:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=OUFKAJ02

There are two images in there, both created on an IBM PC, so I cannot verify their correctness.
Supermosch.adf: Created from within WinUAE via the "diskcopy cat: to df0:" command.
Suremosch.adf: Created with the Catweasel imagetool directly.

They've got different CRC Checksums.

Oh and thanks for the nice words. I thought it might be useful to share the information, because the game seems rare and maybe some other person is looking for it, too.

Cheers for the upload Grizzly I've also put it on the EAB file server (http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=43633) in the folder 'Games/rare_games/Games (De)'.

Yeah, that's because diskcopy will copy file by file to a location where it thinks it fits best
Your catweasel image is more original, because each single used block, which every individual file consists of, is still EXACTLY at the offset where it was on the source disk.

Thanks for the upload.

Okay, thanks for clarification

Now, some admin can change the topic title to

[Found: Miniblast, Suremosch] Looking for two old games (maybe Public Domain)

I cannot change it myself.
