Free TEK1608 Pyro update download available

As previously revealed on drobe.co.uk, before Christmas Artex were planning a big update to their realtime strategy game, TEK1608. The explosive update, titled Pyro, is now available for download for free from the Artexsoft website and brings the following features to the game:

  • Enhanced missile system
  • Enhanced laser system
  • Wayfinder rewritten from scratch
  • Improved AI
  • Smoother 'fog of war'
  • Improved stability and other minor enhancements

According to the email sent to drobe.co.uk from Artex, Pyro is the result of months of hard work by the RISC OS games developer. Acorn-Gaming praised Artex's war game, saying, "..it clearly ranks as one of the best games ever released for the platform". So there you go, what are you waiting for?

Any sign of their promised demo version?

It's been expected 'within a few days' for the last few months! :-)

They may have fixed some of the stability problems, but I seem to have more than before; occasionally it just quits when it finishes producing something or when somebody blows up... better than crashing I suppose ;-)
