Status: Preview, Findability: 2/5


Boost is a neat little title which has different segments, kicking off with a very simple sideways scroller and then going onto further screens where you control a space man.

Although it is very simple and basic to look at, it has a certain charm about it that I like and I was intrigued to see what was beyond that initial space shooter (and was surprised to find the new screen with the ship).

There could be more tucked away inside this, so let us know if you find anything more. It would be great to learn if more was done to the game and what the plans were for it.

Well, Lars Sneftrup got in touch via the comments, and explained that he was one of two developers on the game. This was their first ever game made in 1986, and was sent to a couple of publishers – but no one picked it up.

This as a result is very likely as far as the game got, with nothing more to find.   If you know anything more about it – please do get in touch.

  1. I am one of the two developers. This was actually our first game we made in 1986. It was sent to a couple of software publishers, but was never published. We did release other games commercially after that.
