Yeah Wizard of Wor is something else. One of the best video games ever created, I'd love to get a Magic Voice cart to use with it.

Not going to waste my time any further with this discussion. The Amiga was shit for this genre of games. Anyone who argues a machine with 8 sprites is great for shoot em ups is simply deluded.

Not really. Having more on screen sprites doesn't count for much if the game sucks. Shoot em ups on the Amiga were crap, plain and simple. Couldn't even manage a 50hz port of R-Type, for god's sake....

Yeah, I couldn't disagree more with this, unfortunately.

Name one Amiga game as good as Metroid? Or Contra? Or Final Fantasy? Or the Mega Man series? They simply don't exist.

Looking great so far. The game seems to run really nicely on the 040, obviously a fair bit of optimisation needed.

Yeah, a collection of some of the worst shooters ever created. Fantastic.

Esp Ra De and Dangun Feveron are two of my all time favourites. I love the Psikyo games as well. Strikers, Gunblade, etc.

No need to be scared of a CRT if you've discharged it (several times) correctly. They can rebuild a charge if only discharged once. I've seen it happen!

TTL RGB is a digital signal used on the C128, CGA IBM PC's, and several other machines. The Amiga outputs analog RGB, which is why you're missing colours.
