You've got to play Deuteros! It's the sequel and takes the game to another level of awesomeness

Back to Amiga adventure gaming, we take a look at Curse of Enchantia by Core design, in a video lovingly edited for spoiler-free viewing. Is this all looks and no substance or is it a great game?

We are back on the C64 for this episode, reviewing Boxymoxy, a 2020 puzzle game by RGCD! A great addition to the C64 library or just one more of the same?

Prince of Persia, one of the best games of all time, was officially ported only to the Amstrad CPC out of the major 8-bit micros. Is this a reason for CPC fans to be proud or were we better off with an unofficial port, like the ones the C64 and the Spectrum got?

Taking a look at Darkmere, an isometric exclusive Amiga title for this review. Have we discovered a hidden gem here or had this better remain obscure?

Time for some adventure gaming on the speccy, with a 2016 release, Sam Mallard: the case of the missing Swan! Do we finally have here an 8-bit non-text adventure game that doesn't control like a dog?

All new World of Lemmings is the 3rd installment in the Lemmings series and one that is, sadly, forgotten by Amiga gamers. I have included this one in my top 100 Amiga games of all time and I hope I can show you why in this review!

Well, it is time for a christmassy stinker review, taking a look at the notorious BMX Ninja for the Amstrad CPC! Is it truly a stinker or just a moderately bad game?

Starting the new year with Arazok's Tomb, an unsung Amiga text adventure from 1987! Is this any good or does this belong to the obscurity from which it came?

Well, after reviewing the remake of King's Quest I, it is time for the sequel. This one has an expanded storyline and extra puzzles. Were they successful in their attempt to remake this historically significant adventure game?

This time we are taking a look at Bridge Strike, a recent River Raid clone for the Amiga. Do we have here a good attempt or are you better off playing the original?

Time for an obscure Amstrad title and we have here Zap 't' Balls, an impressive-looking Pang clone. But is it any good or is it only graphics and no gameplay?

For this review, we will be taking a look at Spindizzy Worlds. This is an isometric puzzle/action game that I feel doesn't get much love from the Amiga community. It is time to set the record straight!

I am very happy you liked the review, Niko!

Getting a 2-button option for this one would be fantastic, great idea to ask the WHDLoad wizards!
