I still remember playing Superfrog and Alien breed on my A500 in the early 90's. Good times. Amazing what they could do with such little computing power compared to today's hardware, though back then, most things were written entirely in ASM and heavily optimized to squeeze every bit of juice from the processor. I still take my hat off to the coders from those days. They were really skilled programmers, whilst I never learnt m68k asm, I did learn x86 asm and asm in general is not for the faint hearted! It's a good way to learn and adopt good programming practices, that you can even apply to higher level languages.

Seeing that A500 pic in this thread bought back memories for me too. I couldnt resist this thread

Ps: Sorry for the offtopicness/dribble
