Tintin on the Moon (On the Atari ST)

Time for another flashback to the glory days of home computing and early consoles.

In 1989, French company Infogrames launched Tintin on the Moon for the Atari ST home computer. At the time, the ST was one of the best computers for graphics and sound on the market, making it the perfect platform for a Tintin computer game.

Judging from the reviews in “The One”, a magazine from the time, the producers of the game made full use of the computer’s multi-media potential. Unfortunately they failed to make the game interesting to play or long enough to justify the expensive price tag. It earn a rating of just 66%.
