Romantic Robot - Multiface St

The Multiface was a hardware peripheral released by Romantic Robot for the Atari ST as well as many other home computers. The primary function of the device was to dump the computer's memory to external storage. Pressing a button on the Multiface activated it. As most games of the era did not have a save game feature, the Multiface allowed players to save their position by saving a loadable snapshot of the game.

It connected to the cartridge port with a wired connector attaching to the monitor port (to generate the interrupt signal when the button was pressed). Far less effective than the earlier Spectrum models and the same as the CPC model, it required the cartridge to be present in order to load saved games.
