Anyone had any dealing with this company? They offer many Amiga games on CD that I thought were not even available on CD. I want to order some CD's from them but wondered if anyone has used them. They have monkey Island 2 on Cd for Amiga and other like Heard and Heavy. Any info would be most appricated.

I thought that Cloanto was the only ones licensed to sell a CD like this I would think these maybe rip-offs or something like that. I'll check out their online web site at ebworld and see if they have something like this for sale. I betcha you saw them in the used/pre-owned section ???

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT buy from these people. Absolute thieves. The prices are not good, and if the stuff ever arrives to you, it surely is faulty or not what you ordered.

Absolutely unreliable.

Too bad somebody has to take advantage of Amiga users like this. You'd think that they would bend over backwards to get your business as there is only a small market compared to PC's. But then again greed knows no boundaries

Well, I dont know why, but there's a lot of people that like to cheat on the Amiga user and sell him/her shite. The worst thing is, they fall for it and buy their shite.

Can I say Amiga Inc.? :P

And I should've asked, is there an English page? I can make out some things and not others. Also the pricing needs to be exchanged for US dollars. Geeze, I'm not asking for much am I

You can easily found his e-mail address, on first page.

Hardware, software, games doesn't need to be translated englis ;-)

Last lines of these pages are just that usual stuff, "we keep the rights to changes"

Interesting choise pages are partly english

Other pages are just links, misc,,,,

Prices are in €, if I emember 1€=1$ or little less

amigagames.co.uk is run by the company EPIC. i bought some hardware from them (2 items) and both of which reached me faulty, so i personally would not shop there again.

WTFO, they actually are trying to sell a single PD game? I've seen places sell a CD-ROM collection of PD/Shareware stuff for a small amount to cover the production costs and shipping. Oh well, perhaps the best thing for companies like this is to keep info about them archived at places like EAB
