Welcome to The Amiga Boing Blog, Born on 11th November 2020, which started with the Review of Cave Runner
This Blog aims to preserve Classic Gaming specifically on the Commodore Amiga range of computers
My main aim for this Blog is to bring the Amiga to the masses, by creating easy to use HDF (Hard Drive) images which can be used with an Emulator such as WinUAE/UAE, and also I now provide RP9 files which can be used with Amiga Forever by Clonto, this allows you to get hold of the Games in an easy to use format and allow many more to see how the Amiga shaped the landscape of the 80’s and 90’s and is, still today, a very well loved machine, and still used by thousands of dedicated fans all around the world
All the Public Domain and Shareware Games I review, will be available to download from the relevant section of the website, I will from time to time review Commercially Released Games which I love as well – I love mixing things up a bit 🙂
Each month I will update the HDF (Amiga Hard Disk File image) along with the Amiga Forever RP9 files, which are designed specifically to be Click’N’Play – ie. You double click em, They Load’N’Play – Super eh?
From time-to-time, I may also review a game on another system, But my aim is to remain heavily focused on Amiga-based Games, Demos and other Software which was written or made available on the Amiga Platform
Please feel free to make suggestions on what you would like to see here, I am open to ideas and suggestions of any kind, so please do suggest new ideas to me, there is a Guestbook link in the sidebar where you can let me know how I am doing, What you want to see here, maybe you want to suggest some changes, I am all ears, as I am doing this FOR YOU TO ENJOY!
The Amiga for me, was a huge part of my life growing up, I used to get Games from a local store which no longer exists *sigh* and disk swap with friends, and yes, we all used X-Copy in those days to create backups of games, except my friend “Charlie” (not his real name to avoid his blushes) whos parents bought him an Atari ST *OH THE HORROR* so he could never Disk Swap with me and my friends, awwww….
My late Mother loved playing Mouth-Man, Deluxe Pacman and Flag Catcher and was always playing them when I came home from School, oh yes, Those were the days, when Games were not 3 billion pixels and needed a High End PC to run them, yes we had to wait while the Good ‘ol Amiga spinned up his Floppy Drive (remember those? maybe not if you are under 30) and have to Disk Swap in games like Cannon Fodder, I truly love the Amiga, and many more can also enjoy it today, with emulators like WinUAE (Windows), UAE (Linux), and even Raspberry PI ports of them, making the Amiga so portable, You can still take it to a friends house, and play in Full HD on a Raspberry PI !!
The all time games I personally love are Cannon Fodder, Flag Catcher, Amoeba Invaders, Mine Runner, Deluxe Pacman, Kari Pacman (mainly for its lovely music, and 2-player simultaneous gameplay) – of course I love ALL Amiga Games, But those above are the ones I tend to play the most, as they are so addictive to me
