Running fine after being copied to HD.

Great port. Works fine with a plain A1200 in WinUAE. Will try it later on my real A1200.

TCD found the AIDS bootblock virus via Xcopy on the DMS disk image. Seems true.

What an awesome port by Asman and Wanted. This game is great.

I noticed that game was originally was programmed by Tim Moore

Hopefully this means it would be better to understand a possible port of Metro-Cross. Another great arcade version.

Yep, the 'virus' was a false positive from X-Copy 10.x. Sorry about that

There is one important question. How close to arcade version is Metro-Cross from Atari ST ?

@Metro-Cross ST

The graphic is a bit weaker generally. The gameplay though is nearly as good as the arcade version.

This is a very impressive port! I've played three levels now and not encountered any issues whatsoever. No glitches, slowdown (running A1200 + 4MB fast RAM in WinUAE). Quite an addictive game.
