This website is dedicated to 'The Lost Patrol', a computer game by 'Shadow Development', published by 'Ocean Software Ltd' in 1990/1991. The game was released on Amiga and Atari ST, the major home computer systems in the late 80`s and early 90`s. A rather unknown DOS version converted by 'Astros Productions' does also exist. The game was most recognized for outstanding graphics and a fantastic soundrack, aswell as it`s playability resulting from an unique mixture of different genres into one single game.

Our chopper tailed-out after taking a hit... the pilot won`t be leaving the ground again. Now I have to lead my weary platoon back to our lines through the jungles and paddy fields. Entering what appears to be a friendly village, only to find it is a cover for a guerilla faction, is just one of the things that helps our insomnia... that and the elusive psycho in my squad - I gotta figure out who he is before the morale factor becomes our worst enemy. Jeez, will this stupid war never end!
