Product Description

Despite its untimely bankruptcy in 1994, the Commodore range of Amiga computers still prove a popular choice of hardware for bedroom programmers to create games on with some still developing software for release in 2014. The best selling Amiga 500 model was released in 1987 and its popularity led to hundreds if not thousands of public domain (PD) and shareware games being released, with many titles being superior to their commercial rivals. This book showcases the very best of these games as well as those released on Commodore's financially doomed successor, the Amiga 1200. Contained within the pages of this book are 200 mini reviews of arcade perfect conversions, high quality point and click adventures, classic beat em ups, adrenaline pumping shooters and charming 2D platform games. There are also many innovative titles which could only be found within the PD / shareware market, such as Jeff Minter's Revenge of the Mutant Camels, where you control a camel firing at exploding sheep and skiing kangaroos. The book also contains two exclusive interviews with Amiga shareware programmers David Cruickshank and Michael Welch, the talent behind shareware classics Alien Fish Finger and Scorched Tanks. For Amiga fans, this book is must have reference book providing key information on over twenty five years of shareware / PD releases. For those interested in gaming generally the book contains a rich history of games, many of which have been developed and transported to modern technology, especially the booming mobile phone game market.
