Diatomic is a fast retro arcade action game set inside a set of petri dishes. The safe confines of your petri dish are about to be invaded by nine different diatomic creatures that seek to destroy you. Armed with your shield, tail, strategic intelligence and good reflexes you stand a good chance to defeat the overwhelming odds. You must stay alive during 65 hectic stages, spread over five chapters. The high score list shows what kind of player you are. Playing defensively and gaining an all-out defensive high score is harder to pull off than gaining an all-out offensive high score.
After the intro Grendel Games logo this title displays a black screen and hangs. Underclocking the CPU in Dolphin's Config / Advanced tab allows the game to proceed past the hang, 50% seems to work though that may be dependent on the specific hardware. Speed can be increased once the title has booted. Refer issue 10825.
Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
