What is Obsession?

Obsession is game for Atari STe and Amiga computers. It's a pinball game.

Why we have this page?

Well, I hope there is people who still love and play this game and they can share hiscore tables on this site! Cooper gave me idea to make this site when we chat on irc and exchange hiscore tables.

How to post my hi-score?

Simple send me HISCORE.DAT from Obsession and I'll include yours hi-scores in charts on this site! Please no hacks!

Have more question about this page? email me.

Technical stuff about Obsession (please correct me if I am wrong):

Obsession is very impresive in audio/video way. Game use:
- more than 16 colors at once (palete switching, up to 40 colors!),
- fine vertical scroll,
- 4 chanels mods + 2 chanels for effects,
- 336*260 overscan resolution (removed top and bottom border + 16 pixel left)
... very impressive list of 'dirty' tricks to push atari limits. Result is outstanding colorful, smoth game!

this information is about Atari versison, it would be nice if someone make comparation to Amiga version. Here you can find one screen shot of "Amiga vs Atari" version!

Trivia:

UDS (Unique Development Sweden) release "Absolute Pinball" for PC somewhere in 1996 with table Desert Run, The Dream Factory, Aquatic Adventure, Balls 'N' Bats (only missing X-ile from Obsession).

UDS make only one more game for Atari called "Substation". It's a FPS game.

Peter Zetterberg and Michael Brunnström (Atari enthusiasts, later founders of UDS) was 'annoyed' by the fact that "21st Century Entertainment" made a successful series of pinball games for Amiga only (Pinball Fantasies and Pinball Illusions) so they start work on Obsession.

UDS make "Slam Tilt" - pinball game for Amiga 1200 (ported to PC) which is "best pinball ever" by many people.

History of UDS taken from MobyGames.com

"Merlin software have bought the rights to the Atari version of Obsession. And they are going to upgrade it to use 256 colours in a first Obsession I' version, later to be followed by a Obsession II' which promises MultiBall and redesigned tables. Falcon only ofcourse." (this is cut&copy from dhs.atari.org )
