All great games! Well, except for Sensible Golf. Never quite got into that one.

Were you one of the 5,000 people who managed to snag a copy of Worms The Directors Cut? I still have my copy somewhere. In fact I still play it via emulation from time to time...

Ha! I actually went into a store - an Electronics Boutique, of all things - and spent 14.99 on a copy. Then I started playing it, and I've never really stopped. It's the one game in my library that has remained consistently played, even as other Worms games have come and gone.

Hi Thurbo, squirminator2k and vackillers thank you for the warm welcome :)

I still have my trusty amiga's (A500+ with dual kickstart) (and an A1200) but sadly they don't get any airtime these days...

Been playing Worms 2 Armageddon on xbox live for the last few years.
Got Alien Breed Ep1 and 2 also on XBLA.

God I do miss games like P-X, Superfrog, Lost Vikings, Fury of the furries, turrican and such... They were good times indeed !

Thanks again for the warm welcoming guys, I look forward to contributing here. ;)
Thanks for keeping worms alive T17 !

Ooh, I don't remember it coming out on Amiga.

Yeah, I didn't think Curse came out on the Amiga either. Like you, I had Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2 on the Amiga then got Curse on the PC.

Oh, and to all you Amiga veterans, I had an Amiga 500 and the original Worms (no fancy Directors Cut for me ;)). Instant classic and I've been worming ever since.

Hi there!

In order to keep the "Beta" thread clean and to give all (former) Amiga users a place to chat about our favourite computer :-) and walk down memory lane for Worms and other games on the Amiga, I started this thread.

I think it is really cool to see so much Amiga people here. So, tell us your Amiga story! Remember when computing was fun? :-)

Cheers!

When I say "I" still have one... I guess I am using it as in the royal we..... as in, the one I used growing up remains at my parents' house. I used to get it back out every now and again, though as much as I love the nostalgia trip - I'm just a bit impatient nowadays with loading times etc.

Hi and yes good idea for a thread. I grew up on Amstrad cpc464 and moved into amiga while growing up. For me it was the best computer. I Loved the system in general and the games for it. That was where I first played greats such as worms and dynablaster now a.k.a. bomberman. Loved platformers and puzzlers on it aswell stuff like Lost Vikings, Toki, fury of the furries, Syndicate Pinball Fantasies and dreams, Lotus2... I also loved the amiga for music. What can I say really...?! The Amiga was rich :)

I still have mine but don't use it because of 1/space and 2/video output, I mostly play 360 in hd these days... Still I might grab UAE so I can play bodyblows and turrican again.

Curse of Monkey Island never made it to the Amiga, unfortunately - LucasArts abandoned the Amiga in, I think, 1992, so LeChuck's Revenge would've been their last game for the system. I remember that because most of the reviews for games like Beneath a Steel Sky and Simon the Sorcerer were very enthusiastically saying that Revolution and Adventure Soft had done a great job of filling the Lucas hole.

Erm.

It seems it may have been released for Amiga OS4 - at least, Wikipedia lists it as such - but I'm not able to find any specific information regarding that. Which is weird.

It's worth noting that Curse of Monkey Island can be played on an Amiga via ScummVM, though I haven't tried it. ScummVM's compatibility chart (http://scummvm.org/compatibility/DEV/comi/) doesn't list an Amiga version of Curse, though.

some good ones in there, Puffys Saga, Chaos Engine nad of course how can ANYONE forget lemmings, though Lemmings 2: The Tribes was so much more amazing though, there was some crazy crazy stuff they did with that game back then, oh the HOURS!!! lost in lemmings........ -sighs-

vackillers
10 May 2012, 18:48
Of course, flashback was amazing, that was one of the later games i ever got though for the amiga, If i remember right, that was one of the games i had some issues with, not sure if i just happen to get a bad floppy disk or not but sometimes it would through up that EVER-So-Anoying black screen with red writing mentioning something about a read/write error if my memory serves me well... but i prefered the original anyway, if anyone didn't know, flashback was the sequal to Another World, which i still think was one of the best adventures ever made, but holy crap, if you died, you had to start so far back and some of those puzzles were REALLY bloody hard!!!

Pushover even though i had, never really played it that much, same for shadow fighter... but common guys, you GOTTA REMEMBER IK+ ??? the best martial arts game EVER!!! with the flying heads and the kick to the balls!!!!! :D

Double Dragon series was a good one too though as far as beat-em-ups went next to street fighter 2, but i think everyone who owned any sort of gaming machine back in the day owned that damn game :D

Some more games just to list a few of my 100's of games i had lol

Skidmarks 1 & 2, Super Skidmarks (AGA version), SWOS, Zanny Golf, Super cars 1 & 2, Altered Beast, Pandora, Arkanoid!!!! woooo, my fav was the 3rd one, i loved the ghost power-up you could cover the entire bottom n never loose a ball lol, Marble Madness, Hunter (the original battlefield) lol

Squirminator2k
10 May 2012, 19:07
I don't think there was an ECS/OCS version of Super Skidmarks, was there?

Super Skidmarks was interesting - the Amiga version supported LAN play, which wasn't uncommon for Amiga multiplayer games of the time (case in point: Team17's own Alien Breed 3D), but Acid were, for a time, actively working on a method of networking the Amiga and the Mega Drive so that the two versions could compete against each other, being as they were based on the same code. Unfortunately for whatever reason that didn't come to fruition. Possibly Sega complained, or something.

Edit: Also, worth noting that Flashback wasn't actually a sequel to Another World - it was just erroneously referred to as such by the gaming press at he time.

vackillers
10 May 2012, 19:25
yea i dont remember which one it was... it was the skidmarks that was available for the amiga1200, the last skidmarks they made, which took use of the AGA chipset which enabled you to have more cars on the strack, it was amazing that game, messing up all the strack as the more you went around it.. loved that game, one of my favs was driving around the track with caravans attached to the back of you, you could swing that thing into the other cars to gain an advantage on the corners lol

I actually thought it was, it might have been the pre-qual as well, its so hard to remember now...

edit: yes, it was super skidmarks

I [i]loved[i] Skidmarks. Both of 'em. The manual for Super Skidmarks included instructions on how to make a four-player adapter for the Amiga. I remember staying behind after school for three days soldering wires so I could build that thing and race with my friends. Worked beautifully too, though it looked like ****.

Clydos
10 May 2012, 19:55
Ha, Super Skidmarks, what a great game! Yeah, I also loved the Caravans thing - what a great fun!

Do you also know "onEscapee" which was some kind of successor of Another World and Flashback? Was released after the golden Amiga ages and it was beautiful!

Also, I know for sure, that there is no native OS4 version of "Curse for Monkey Island"! The must mean the way by ScummVM.

And like hanschke stated in the beta thread, I _loved_ the Worms beta, which was delivered on the cover disk of the magazine "Amiga Games" here in Germany. I never ever played a demo version such often as I did with that (I think it was even limited to 5 minutes play only). But after some months of playing I could finally afford the full version! :-)
Loved the cool copy protection book - black numbers on blach "shiny paper"!

@beth: I think it is most cool, that there are still Team 17 members which are/were Amiga users! What about the rest of the company?

hey Clydos, i sure dont remember that one, onEscapee, i may have played it and simply just dont remember the name, i had quite a few friends back in the day that owned either a A500/A500+ or the A600 so chances are high i played it, but im really sure i never owned it which is a shame, you make it sound good now :D

I could go on and on for litterly, hours now, on Demo Disks, wow, from the Cannon Fodder stuff to Sensible Moon Soccer, back in the day the demos were amazing, they would let you do a few levels of a game, or just purely designed as a one off thing to promote the game, the articles and everything were really awesome, i remember a 6 page spread in Amiga Format mag that covered one of the Leisure Suit Larry games, think it was Leisure suit larry 3 : amazon queen or something like that, distinctively remember the pictures even now haha!!

Did anyone here ever had the Amiga CD32? because at the time i didn't have the cash to buy back in the day, and it went extinct almost as fast the Atari Jaguar lol... I remember a few of the Cds that were vailable for it, the massive mutli collection of games stuff, but that was about it really for that platform that i can physically remember

Squirminator2k
10 May 2012, 20:30
I've owned two CD32s in my time. It was briefly, the most popular CD-ROM based gaming system in the UK, despite Commodore's best efforts. That is to say nothing of developers (including Team17, sadly) who released rather lazy drag-and-drop ports to the system (though Worms, Alien Breed: Tower Assault and Alien Breed 3D did get CD32 enhancements). The only games released for the system that were specifically developed with the CD32 in mind were Liberation: Captive II, a rather fantastic open-world scifi game which used a bizarre save file mechanism, and Microcosm, which was actually supposed to be an FMTowns exclusive before being ported to a number of different systems.

vackillers
10 May 2012, 20:39
I played Microcosm at a gaming event in london which was absolutely fantastic, loved the hell out of that game, at the time that was one of the only games available for it though. Its a shame in a way because i personally felt, the CD32 and the Atari Jaguar had so much potential and life in their systems but nothing was being developed for either systems, nothing of good quanity anyway, The Jaguar was the first EVER 64bit machine, PCs at the time weren't even 64bit which showed how much advanced the 2 platforms were, could even consider them ahead of their time, but were being out played by the masses of the nintento and saga megadrive which left no real desire (financially) to develop anything for the 2 systems, that, coupled with next to no advertisement on TV adds or anything like that meant the systems got tagged behind because no one really knew about them.

To my shame, I've never played Police Quest. I don't remember being invulnerable in the Superfrog demo, but I do remember one interesting quirk:

The demo contained the entire third world of the game - Circus world - but if you entered a password on the Options screen, literaly any password, you could play the first world! Finishing it would "load" world two, which was actually just a scrambled mess of broken tiles.

Hired guns was a really hard game, to me, the first of its kind ever, for a FPS genre type game.. music and soundFX kicked so much ass on that!!

interesting they made a PC version of that, the only did that with a few games actually, Cannon fodder, which was terrible, all the men were stretched and it just simply ran too fast haha, and the original settlers, which was a really good port.

@MadMaxquinn... hahahaha, same thing here man. Hate football but loved that Soccer Kid Demo, I had to get involved that game had such a charm about it and was fun/interesting to play.

As for the Talk of the Monkey Islands, I'm pretty sure only Monkey 1 and 2 came to Amiga. Curse of Monkey(3) came to PC.
Escape from Monkey(4) Came out for PC and PS2.

Was all well and good until the day we argued over the controller and the computer fell off the table. Green screen blues make a bobby sad.

I miss Days of Thunder. Crap game but execellent theme tune.

Worm Mad
20 May 2012, 13:22
Days of Thunder was one of the first games I had for the Amiga (it came with the computer) and man, it was terrible. I don't even remember ever beating the first race.

Also with the machine (Amiga 500) were Shadow of the Beast 2, Night Breed and Deluxe Paint. I thought there was another game and Google suggests it was probably Back to the Future 2 (which I did have but thought I'd got later).

Anyway, Shadow of the Beast 2 was pretty naff but was the first Amiga title I played. I remember being in awe of the screen when you died thinking the graphics were incredible (before that we'd had a Vectrex).

Night Breed was horrible. It was creepy as hell (at least for a young kid) and the gameplay wasn't exactly enjoyable.

Deluxe Paint was the best product in the package. A smooth piece of art making kit that easily beats the risible Paint that comes with today's PCs.

And, since it may have been one of the originals, Back to the Future 2 wasn't great but was still fun. It always used to amuse us that the characters mouths moved open and shut in the animation sequences for far longer than it would realistically take them to say the dialogue.

"MARTY. WE'VE GOT TO GO BACK. BLA BLA BLA BLA"
"BACK WHERE? BLA BLA BLA"
"BACK... TO THE FUTURE. BLA BLA BLA"

I got to the second race in DoT once.
Night Breed was a keyboard mashing game one bit and a poor point and click game the next. It was dog hard with no saving. BtF2 was again a bit random but we managed to get through most of it without cheating.
Shadow of the Beast, in the days before the Internet often left me scratching my head trying to figure out what to do next. I could usually break it by jumping through the floor in certain locations. I usually gave up and played Fighting Fantasy instead.

It was a pretty weird game. In fact, there were loads of really weird games on the Amiga. Nowadays, you'd never get them funded but I guess it was an age where games were made with far smaller teams (sometimes one or two people) and budgets than you get today. Still, sometimes you miss the insanity :o
