I've been using iGame for more than six years, both on WinUAE with game screenshots and on a real Amiga without, and I disagree with both claims.



I found it quite easy to install (why would you call a regular WB installation with MUI 'bloated'?) and it only takes a few seconds to load, even though I have no accelerator. Just an A1200 with 10MB RAM.

Granted, it took me months to set up that first database, correcting every single name and dividing everything neatly into categories, but I considered that time to be part of the fun. Whenever I've added new games since then, I've simply edited the gameslist file in a text editor.
