Team17 Returns with a Rage In Raging Justice

The masters of the 90’s are back, it ain’t an Amiga game this time around sadly. It’s another PlayStation 4 release although this time with a brilliant 2D sidescrolling beat em up which is reminiscent of the quality stuff Team17 did back in the Amiga days. Team17 never made a sidescrolling beater indeed, but just about every game they made back then was of very good quality and...

Pixel Perfection: Tower 57 Hits Amiga

This Tower 57 article has been on the “list” for way too long now, the crazy thing here is that the first preview article was nearly done in “early” January and then postponed due to Daniel ‘Daytona675x’ Müßener’s (the guy behind this Amiga port) hard work and ongoing changes and optimisations. I was let in on the beta-team early and believe me...

Road Avenger, Out Now On Amiga CD32

Pixelglass Games returns with another LaserDisc/SEGA CD FMV game port, last years game was TIME GAL which was a solid port and a pretty unique game for the Amiga. Road Avenger from DATA EAST is the third game in the ReImagine series, a label that carries unofficial fan projects and in general pretty interesting projects for us here at the AmigaGuru’s blog. Road Avenger is like most other FMV...

Spencer Just Jumped Out Of Nowhere

Entwickler-X is finally back , this time with a 2D/3D pseudo platformer for Steam & AmigaOS4x. At first glance the game style looks quite a bit like Tin Toy Adventures and the likes from the mid 90s, that is until you move around and notice the camera and depth added. The playable demo kicks off with some sparkling graphics and it didn’t take long to notice how much effort was put into...

Retrospective: Banshee

The Amiga certainly had its fair share of brilliant shooters over the years,most people mention games like Apidya, Hybris, Blood Money, Project X or Battle Squadron as their number one Amiga shoot ’em up, all splendid titles but very few people mention any of the brilliant AGA exclusive shooters like Banshee, Super Stardust, T-Zer0 and so on. Core Design made a few shoot em ups for the Amiga...

The Dream Of Rowan – Pre-order Campaign

AmiTen Software have been around for a while now and most Amiga people have probably heard about them in one way or another by now for sure, one of the reasons is most likely because of their upcomming game ” The Dream Of Rowan “, a game i have mentioned before on this very site even. The game started as an normal game project and then it was put on kickstarter but failed to meet its...

Babylonian Twins Kickstarter

I recived a mail from the guy behind the Babylonian Twins project a while ago now (a month ago…) and the mail basically asked if we could try and help getting more people in on the mailing list to (basically)motivate him to kickstart the project. The version will be multi-format and one of the versions will be the original Amiga version which they started (and supposedly finished) back in...

A Look At Hermes Amiga & Dreamcast

Hermes is actually a Dreamcast game with AmigaOS4, MacOS-X and Windows versions on the same CD. The Dreamcast version can be seen as the main dish here i guess, the rest as side dishes as it is mostly seen as a Dreamcast only title as that is the only format the game autoboots on. The last attempt of this that i know of was Leona’s Adventure but as you may know this project failed to...

A Look At Lumberjack Reloaded CD32

There’s two versions available, 1 CD version (CD32/CDTV) and 1 Floppy version and the one i got is the CD version which works on both the CDTV and the CD32. Every version of Lumberjack Reloaded comes in a white DVD case and...
