Eeeh.. fuck it. I've zoned the whole lot. The google doc I posted on the last page has notes about which have source, which have already been released, which I've made a couple of patches to etc.

But please bear in mind that none of these games have had approval by their original authors for public release, so (other than obviously the ones that are already online) they're definitely NOT for Aminet etc.

It's certainly worth tracking down the original authors to see if there are more complete editions of these games. At least a couple advertised that they were demo/shareware editions (Crystal Kingdoms and Mr Zen at least). One remarkably still has a live webpage advertising the game - http://homepages.paradise.net.nz/ants/pyromid.html

Did someone else want to take over making the videos then?

Think it is safe to upload these games.

I took a quick look and found these interesting: (so will do longplays of them).

Derring-Do ... Not the best game in the world. But this was on the cover disks of Amiga Format and Amiga Power. So this is maybe even worth adding to HOL.
Doctor Strange ... There is a longplay of Doctor Strange 2, but only shortplays of this one. Both games already in HOL.
Robo Tastic ... Below average, but will play anyway.
Wriggly II ... The Amiga version of a C64 game!
Pyro-Mid ... No comment.

Not sure yet:

Crystal Kingdoms ... I normally do not do longplays of demo versions of games. But this one is quite interesting, so will make one exception here.
Yerop ... No sound?
Mr. Zen ... Have not figured out how to play yet.
Spaceman ... The character is stuck so you can not move. Emulation issue?

AppleJack and Cyberdroid are the better games in the archive. But there are already videos of these games.

Have tried to track down the author of Crystal Kingdoms with no luck.

Already lost interest? You should ask Per-Ola Eriksson, s2325 or petsasjim1. These people upload shortplay videos.

If Spaceman is Lunar Jetman remake it may require ZX-Spectrum style controls (QAOP).

Lunar Jetman is not even the same kind of game.

I've created a bootable ADF of Crystal Kingdoms for anyone who wants to play it. It's in the Zone now.
