Radarsoft was a Dutch video game developer of the 1980s. It released its first game (3D Tic Tac Toe) in 1984 for the Commodore 64. Until 1987 Radarsoft released multiple titles for the Amiga, Atari, Philips MSX and DOS.[1][2] Their main focus was the Dutch market, so most games are only available in Dutch. In 1986 Radarsoft went to the American video game market, where it hopelessly flopped.[3]

Some of Radarsoft's most successful games include the shooter Eindeloos (aka Endless or Infinitis, 1985, also released in France and England) and the platform game Hopeloos (Hopeless, 1986). They also released a Commodore 64 platform game featuring Snoopy (1984) and Co & Co (1985).[4] The last game Radarsoft has been credited for is Zenith (1997), a pinball game for the Philips CD-i.[5]

Radarsoft is still around but quit making video games. They are now focusing on educational multimedia software and multimedia projects on CD-ROM, DVD and internet.[6]
