on August 04, 2016

3rd game in the Ishar series, plays similar to Eye of the Beholder, Dungeon Master & Bloodwhyche etc Instead of just dungeons this has a large open world to explore that is really hostile, head in the wrong direction when you start can end up being killed minutes from the start of play. Gr...[continue]

Activision used to do some decent conversions on both 8 & 16 Bit machines from the late 80s & 90s. This is another decent conversion that is faithful to the original arcade game. Nice graphics & sound and it is actually 2 player simultaneous (8 Bit C64 version is only single player). ...[continue]

Also know as McDonaldland I believe over in the USA. Not a bad game in all fairness, looks good, decent sound and pretty playable. If you have a CD32 pad and connect it to an Amiga 1200 you can use a second button to jump instead of pushing up. A lot of reviews mention blind jumping, guess the...[continue]

Times of Lore

on August 04, 2016

One of my favorite all time RPG's, I also have this complete for the C64. It is a top down ARPG where you speak with people, have to eat to survive and so on. Much like the Ultima games you get no quest markers, you have to read quest logs carefully and follow the directions from there. Al...[continue]

Dynasty Wars

on August 04, 2016

This is a pretty accurate conversion of the old Capcom arcade game where you are on horseback. Select a hero that have different attributes, weapons & special attacks. Pretty basic side scroller crossed with brawler but it is really playable and looks nice with decent graphics & sound. ...[continue]

Zeewolf

on August 04, 2016

Based on the earlier Zarch for the Acorn Archimedes which was known as Virus on Amiga & Atari ST. Zarch / Virus was a dog to control, over sensetive controls made it extremely hard, sensetivity was the thing with it. Zeewolf uses the same engine but a lot of work has been put into it, ...[continue]

Bloodnet

on June 28, 2016

From what I believe this was only ever released on PC DOS and AGA (Amiga 1200) machines even though Hall of Light states ECS chipset (Amiga 500+ & 600). Either way, this is a pretty good Cyberpunk game with vampires, it has a few bad design decisions like the creators thought that would be co...[continue]

Birds of Prey

on June 28, 2016

Very good combat flight simulator from EA as publisher and Argonaut Software, loads of planes and plenty missions to do. As with all flight sims of this era (other sims also) there was quite a steep learning curve but once you grasp it then you can play for hours. This runs lovely on the Amiga...[continue]

Alien 3

in Amiga Games
on June 28, 2016

Exactly the same as the megadive version except control is changed to 1 button scheme and up / down on joystick to jump & duck etc and you tap space to change weapons. It is an ok game, but way to hard, the Aliens appear onscreen and jump at you knocking you down, they move way to fast a...[continue]

Disposable Hero

on June 28, 2016

This is a really good side scrolling shooter that shows off just what the Amiga can do. It is extremely tough though!! At the start of the game your basic weapon takes numerous hits to take out enemies, even after powering up later on via the factories it still feels very underpowered. Still i...[continue]
