    Renowned programmer Steve Bak, who worked on titles including StarRay, Goldrunner, and Spitting Image, has passed away.

    Bak rose to prominence during the '80s after accomplishing breakthrough feats on the Atari ST, the most notable of which came when he proved smooth scrolling was possible on the console with the creation of vertical shooter Goldrunner.
