  1. Shamus

    Shamus is a computer game written by William Mataga and published by Synapse Software. Originally released for the Atari 8-bit computers in 1982, it was later ported to a number of platforms including the VIC-20, Commodore 64, TRS-80 Color Computer, TI-99/4A, IBM PC and Nintendo Game Boy Color; several of these ports were made by Atarisoft. It was followed by a sequel Shamus: Case II, available on the Atari and C64. William Mataga's original version was 16k in size and released on disk, tape, and cartridge for the Atari 8-bit family. The VIC-20 port was 8k and contained only 32 levels. Other releases were either on disk or tape. In 1999, Mataga developed an improved remake for the Game Boy Color. The original Shamus is notably incompatible with any of the Atari 8-bit family except the 400/800. Official ports of both Shamus and Shamus: Case II are available for iOS devices.
