This post is probably out of the usual scope of the blog, but while surfing I ended up on that video. All of a sudden I jumped back in time when I was 12 and faced a lot of souvenirs. Without the acquisition of that computer I don’t think I would have developed such a strong interest to computer graphics. You might want to turn off your sounds for the first video.
Let’s do a quick briefing for those who have not experienced the amiga. This was the first computer to offer the general public a range of high-quality video games from 1985 to 1994, with a “new generation” graphic ability offering more than 8 colors and playing music on 4 tracks:).
The competition at that time was the Atari ST / STE, and the PC but they were no match regarding the quality of the games. Toward the end of the amiga reign, Pentiums revolutionized the PC world and consoles grew even bigger on the market. This is a personal interpretation and very probably wrong, but this is how I experienced the funeral of my super cool Amiga 500.
I remember even having made my first step towards the graphics on this machine with deluxe paint, and later the 3d graphics with Sculpt 4d and Real 3d. I will be curious to review those first images I did back then.
Here is a list of the games that have marked my childhood, so many great intros, great moments that I hope some of you also remember.
Cruise for a Corpse
An some more :
BAT (1 et 2)
I could easily add 50 more titles which kept me stucked in front of my old computer.
If you really want to play again with those great games , then install WINUAE on your PC and I let you find the games using your favorite search engine.
Have fun !
