BASGAMES GFA 3 4.10.2023

The twelve best games for the XPRO VGA REDUCED 2.12 gaming console are contained as games for the ATARI ST mono computer in the BASGAMES GFA package. Twenty less interesting games are contained as ATARI ST mono games in this BASGAMES GFA 3 package. Xsquare ATARI ST mono is available as a seperate download, so all 33 XPRO VGA REDUCED 2.12 games are available for the ATARI ST mono. A version of GALAXY, which makes winning fights against the aliens easier, is included as a bonus. Starbreak is also available as a version with mouse steering in the BASGAMES GFA 2 package.
The games are not tested on a real machine, but these versions of the games were converted from BrowserBasic 2.05 to GFA Basic 3.6. The programs run with the emulator hatari 1.8.0 and its built-in EmuTOS-image (

Running the games with hatari (in 2023):
Download hatari (a .zip) and extract the files to your hard disk. Extract the files from to the folder with the hatari files. Start hatari.exe. Press F12. Select "Hard disks". Select "Browse" next to "GEMDOS drive" and select the folder with the files from Choose "Back to main menu". Select "Reset machine" and "OK". Double-click "DISK C" and select a game-folder with double-clicks. The program file of a game (.PRG) can be double-clicked to start it.

The games also run with Steem v3.2 (, if the TOS-ROM tos1.02de is used, but they are not compatible to the STEmulator from the late 1990s. GFA BASIC was chosen as programming language to get games compatible to EmuTOS.
The subfolders in the BASGAMES GFA 3 download contain texts with information in German, how to play the games. I think you can also play them, if you just try out. You need to be familiar with the German language only for the bonus game Galaxy. The games from BASGAMES GFA 3 can also be played with the Hataroid app and its built-in EmuTOS-image. Hataroid is available for Android devices.

2bomb, Comball, Icerace, Pacfull2, Sacmania, Xfight and X-Race are games for two players, the other games are for one player. Galaxy can be played with one or more (n) players.
There are performance problems with Spacecon and Truebreak. The other games don't need much CPU power. Truebreak generates random levels. Some of the generated levels may not be solvable.
