icon  Rare Amiga game "MagicianĀ“s Dungeon" preserved & released by World of Longplays
Posted by ScHlAuChi - 17 June 2021 18:02
World of Longplays has its 15th Anniversary on YouTube today. -

To celebrate this occasion we thought it is the perfect time to give something back to the community. A full dump of MagicianĀ“s Dungeon!
You can download it here:

This super rare Amiga game was discovered by NPI on Ebay a few weeks ago. There is no info about this game anywhere and no HOL entry exists.
So we went ahead and bought it for 892,- Euro and sent it to dlfrsilver to get it preserved! He successfully dumped the disks last wednesday - so
special thanks to him too!

The game might be crappy, but it is preserved now and can be played again for the first time in 34 years!
Here is the full video:

Metal Gear - Amiga Port - Released!
Posted by h0ffman - 21 May 2021 15:39
Originally released in 1987 for the MSX2, Metal Gear became an instant classic. Designed by the legendary Hideo Kojima, it spawned a huge franchise in stealth gameplay and is considered one of the top games from the platform. While there are ports for the NES, Spectrum and C64 they were missing a lot of the key details from the original game. An Amiga version was once advertised in a magazine but sadly was consigned to myth and legend. That is until now.

Based on a full and commented disassembly by Manuel Pazos of the original MSX2 game cartridge, this Amiga port has been built to ensure as near a perfect conversion as possible. Gameplay elements remain intact while additional features have been layered on-top to ensure the fullest experience possible of Metal Gear on the Amiga.
  • Code ported from Z80 to 68000 assembly by Hoffman
  • Gameplay adjusted to work at full 50hz/60hz
  • No slow-downs or sprite flicker
  • Multiple game modes
    • English Remix Fan Translation
    • Original European Version
    • Original Japanese Version
    • New Spanish Translation by Akira
  • Enhanced Amiga Soundtrack and SFX by Hoffman
  • Optional emulated MSX / PSG Music and SFX
  • Full support for CD32 gamepad for keyboard-less gameplay
  • Additional character graphics by Toni Galvez
  • All new ending / credits section
  • For any Amiga with 512kb Chip Ram + 512k Other Ram
  • Bootable disk image for low spec Amigas
  • WHDLoad installer by Psygore

12 Themes for AROS 68k/x86
Posted by AMIGASYSTEM - 11 May 2021 10:06

Created 12 Themes including Background Workbench and Windows, Windows GUI, Zune GUI, Pointers (optional), Themes are compatible with all AROS 68k and AROS x86 versions and will be available on the next releases of AROS One x86 and AROS One 68k

For the Theme Change I've created single scripts to be executed via icon from Workbench (Wanderer), once clicked a request will ask the confirmation that if accepted will restart the system with the new Theme.

To improve the graphical aspect I have also created small icons for viewing in detail on the Workbench, see attached video

I enclose a video that shows all 12 themes installed on AROS One 68k.

Mev Dinc - Life Is A Game biography
Posted by quahappy - 01 May 2021 17:35
quahappy's Avatar  Hi all! Long time since I've posted here and I use to be a regular, posting a fair bit. Yup, I'm still playing Amga games via the amazing WinUAE but over the past few years, I have been concentrating on pixel art, primarily ZX Spectrum, even releasing my own book, Better Late Than Never.

Anyhow, as a result of being a prolific pixel artist (ahem), I've got to know and become friends with legends of yesteryear, which is surreal as to me, they are icons I looked up to giving us ground-breaking games on Spectrum and Amiga! Back in 2019, I did a Happy New Screen year (Speccy) and thereafter, approached by award-winning developer Mev Dinc. Yep, the guy who did First Samurai on the Amiga as well as many other games! He asked if I'd be interested in doing a cover for the English version of his book, which was already released in Turkish (his native country). How could I refuse!

I ended up doing the book title with another good friend doing the film strip. I've not long finished reading the book (300 pages) and it really is a gripping rag to riches story, with many ups and downs, obstacles faced to his success as a game developer. Ironic to think even when a work colleague at a factory Mev worked at persuaded him to get a Spectrum, he showed no interest in it or in games! Rest is history!

Mev's book is available in paperbook or Kindle at Amazon and other online book stockists. I've not put the link as not sure if it's allowed.

Exhumed / Powerslave Amiga port
Posted by BSzili - 27 April 2021 07:37
BSzili's Avatar  Exhumed / PowerSlave is an Egyptian-themed FPS by Lobotomy Software using the Build engine. The console versions were quite popular back in the day, but the DOS one was largely overlooked due to the somewhat awkward controls and issues on faster systems.

Here's an early preview of the Amiga version:

New version of Remote Desktop for AmigaOS 3.x 68k (and OS4.x) - Update!
Posted by DarrenHD - 15 April 2021 18:14

Hello! I am happy to announce that we are working on a new version of the Remote Desktop client for AmigaOS 3.x (68k). It will also work on OS 4.x.

The RDesktop client allows your Amiga to bring up (in a window or full screen) the desktop of your Windows computer. So you can access your Windows computer directly from the comfort of your Amiga. It supports playing sound from the Windows computer to your Amiga computer through AHI.


We are working on developing a new version of RDesktop for 68K (AmigaOS 3.x) computers and compatibles. It will require AmiSSL 4.9 and the latest codesets from Aminet. It will have a netdisk=sys: feature where your Amiga directory will show up on the Windows side so you can copy files back and forth. Of course it will have RemoteAudio, Full Screen, a GUI (requires MUI5), and other features. It will be released based on the latest rdesktop code base. I have tested it on a real Amiga 4000, an Amithlon system, and a Vampire-equipped system so far. Tested to work on OS4.x as well.

Anyone who makes a donation (small or large) to encourage the developer (Micha? ?ukowski) to keep motivated will immediately receive the latest beta version via e-mail. I would hope the release version is ready in 1-2 months.

You can make a donation here:

Scroll down about half way on that page and click the Donate button.

Thank you very much and we look forward to releasing the final version!

TroyWilkins's Avatar  Not sure if this belongs in news or somewhere else, so if this is in the wrong place I apologise. I did a search but couldn't find any topics here that referred to

I'm not sure if anyone else here knows about this yet or not, but a YouTube channel called Action Retro has launched these two sites, designed specifically to work on retro computers from the 80s and 90s. Because they're a Apple Macintosh focused channel, their aim was to get at least some of the web usable on 68K based Macs, but they also show it working on a Windows 95 Toshiba ultraportable and an Apple IIe!

Of course my first thought was that this would also work on AWeb and IBrowse, and sure enough on my AmiKit XE install they worked perfectly!

I thought perhaps other people here may be interested.

Here's the video for more information:
