Awesome is a shoot em up game developed by Reflections (the team that created Shadow Of The Beast) and published by Psygnosis for the Atari ST and Amiga OCS in 1990. The ST version comes in 3 discs.
You fly with your spaceship through various star systems blasting other alien powers, meteors or even space debris. Once you vanish every enemy on screen, you are warped to a planet where you can purchase better weapons, stronger shields and you can enhance your spaceship. The enemies attack in hordes and you have to move back and forth or rotate your spaceship to vanish them. You can check any aliens survived via your radar screen. The game needs skill since it's quite difficult to cope with.
The ST version, though slightly inferior to the Amiga, looks (and sounds) really good. Unfortunately the intro sequence has no sound (compared to the sampled sound FX used on the Amiga). The camera perspective is from above and you can move towards all dimensions. In-game graphics are fine with minor differences between the two versions (mainly due to the 16 and 32 colors being used on the ST and the Amiga respectively). The ST music is a mixed score of chip tunes with some ST Digi Synth sound samples. My only complaint is that you cannot have simultaneously music and sound FX during gameplay. The animation is good with no slowdown issues. Awesome is a good game for the Atari ST, but it could've been better.
