The object of the game :
Evil aliens from the planet ^&!œ$" are trying to destroy
Earth by throwing down huge blobs of .... er... radio active
... er.. things! These things come in 7 different shapes
and if, using your INVISIBLE tractor-ray-gun, you can rotate and
move these shapes so that they fall into a line they melt down
and disappear ( and you get 15 points ). If you manage to get 4
at once you get such a big melt down that the sign at the bottom
of the screen lights up!! ( and you get some more points ). If
you, unfortunately, let the blobs get up to the top they all
explode, and every one dies. But before the thought of exploding
blobs and other associated things makes you WRETCH, God stops
time and lets you press space and try again! ( Cor streuth!! )
The aliens ( who incidentally are also invisible ), after a
while will slowly catch on if you seem to be good at melting
their blobs, and once they've twigged they'll throw them down
This game is a cross between a demo and a standard game.
Teserae has got a few little features that hopefully add up to
a nice game. It's got rasters behind the blocks, a scroller,
a byte-bending logo, and it's got the infamous brain-straining
'Oh no I feel like I'm drunk and staring at a piece of wall
paper, that's changing!!' background scroller, which, if you're
finding the game too easy is sure to numb your senses. Ya see?
The ST can do weird effects like that, it isn't just noisy
Porkipines that can do that! ( That's a bit cryptic )
It's got 6 levels. ( Only 6 six?? I hear you cry.. Ah ha!!
But these are whopping great levels that get 'exponentially'
harder! ( What? ) ). And I've only ever got onto level 4. If
any one sends me a video of them playing my Teserae game, and
completing level 6, an all expenses paid holiday to Florida USA
The scoring is simple, you get 15 points on level 1, 20 on
level 2 etc and a bonus for getting 4 lines at once.
If you are running this game on a Mega STE ( not an STE
with 1Mb of memory ), then unless you've got it switched to 8Mhz
you will notice that it flickers, to cure this terrible
affliction just use that nice control panel and switch it to
8Mhz, if you don't have the control panel then it'll already be
We hope that you have a lot of fun playing this game, if you
do ( of course you will! ), why not copy it for all you friends?
Why not copy it for everyone in existence? The more people the
better!! If you really like it maybe you could set up a
rehabilitation centre for people who have been staring at the
moving background for a couple of hours too long, their brains
will be melted, the symptoms are a head-ache and eyes which move
in odd directions all by themselves. The cure, to calm you down,
is to listen to some Scanners music or to put your head in an
ice-box for several hours and think tranquil thoughts.
If you are at all interested in this game and want to know
anything about it, or want to know what else The Albanian Sausage
Corporation make, or want to know how various bits were
programmed or want some source code then I'm sure we could
strike a deal. All source is for Devpack 2 and a tiny little bit
for STOS. If you want to contact me write to :

The SYD 150 bit is very important, by the way. See ya!
