There is an official english translation of this.
Looks nice, plenty of levels and enemies. But it is just way too hard. Needs probably 200 instead 2 lives to finish :-) Part of difficulty lies in laggy controls of hero.
No problem, I haven't found an actual original version among the cracks either though, only homebrew. Peter Putnik had also a version on his site which reconstructs the original with the Construction Kit release, maybe that's also were the Youtube stuff is from.

Interestingly, the game was reviewed by a German ST magazine, ST-Computer (http://stcarchiv.de/stc1991/10/relax-aktuelle-spiele). The article doesn't mention anything specific about the ST version and the author was known for writing lots of reviews of Amiga and ST games so it's not clear whether he really had the Atari one.
To my knowledge it was the other way round: Exidy licensed the original from First Star. The Exidy Arcade version is based on the Atari 8bit version.
There was yet another version later by Data East running on the DECO hardware - that's were the screenshot is actually from.
The cover of the Wicked version in the other entry looks to be just for the Construction Kit, makes me wonder if the original BD was really released for the ST.
You're absolutely right. Thanks for the correction. My 8bit Atari knowledge is very limited. There should be an original Boulder Dash release too for ST. At least on YouTube there's one and i've seen some cracks too. Wicked EDOS scan was on the wrong entry, thanks for spotting it too :)
One of the better Atari ST shoot em ups. I think its engine is much better than R-type 1 and that makes all the difference.
Strange, it's an RGB-version. It's the very same download than here -> http://www.fatal-design.com/fd_sites/pinball/
Works on my Falcon / Scart TV but with TOS 4.02. Also starts under Hatari emulated Falcon in RGB mode, but the emulation can't run the main game yet.
Does not run on my Falcon 4MB/Tos 4.04. I have an Atari 1224 RGB Monitor. Maybe this game is the VGA-Version?
Developer field should be Synapse for this and the Synapse published version.
