POPULARITY POLL by Richard Karsmakers

You  might remember me telling you that there had been  a  little 
earthquake  in the game Top 10 in the previous issue of ST  NEWS
but this time it's even worse:  Not only have two new games taken 
place 1 and 2,  but I also had to make it a game Top 15 in  order 
to get all good games in it. "Flightsimulator II" is rashly going 
down in the charts,  and it's to be seen if it will be present at 
all in future Top 15's.

Due to the eventual launch of the "B.I.G. Demo", Mad Max from TEX 
is  once again onm the first place of the music programmer's  top 
5, whereas David Whittaker is still working hard on the ST - thus 
deserving the second place. The other ranks didn't change.

1)   Mad Max from TEX
2)   David Whittaker
3)   Rob Hubbard
4)   Holger Gehrmann

In the next issue of ST NEWS,  you'll be able to read the  things 
that have happened in the charts....'till then!

The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues. Please take into consideration that the author(s) was (were) a lot younger and less responsible back then. So bad jokes, bad English, youthful arrogance, insults, bravura, over-crediting and tastelessness should be taken with at least a grain of salt. Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated. Due to the fact that these pages are not actually contained in an Atari executable here, references to scroll texts, featured demo screens and hidden articles may also be irrelevant.
