Ports / Conversions --> Amiga

Hello all,

As suggested by one of our new members AmigaBill

I will hunt these down !
So, here it is... A thread dedicated to all "Ports / Conversions" --> "Amiga"

Myself (and hopefully other Global Moderators) will try to keep this as up-to-date as possible


Arcade ports / conversions:


Atari ST ports / conversions:

  • Arctic Moves [meynaf]: thread
  • Back to the Golden Age [meynaf]: thread
  • Gauntlet [meynaf]: post (and possibly others within thread)
  • International Karate [meynaf]: thread
  • Joust [meynaf]: post (and possibly others within thread)
  • Karateka [meynaf]: thread
  • Metro-Cross [Asman]: thread

Note:
a) meynaf's ports / conversions can be downloaded from his website.
b) unofficial .ADFs of meynaf's ports / conversions can be downloaded from the EAB File Server under the directory "TheZone/files". A pack containing all the latest versions is called "meynaf - Atari ST conversions.rar".
c) some of Asman's & meynaf's ports / conversions can be found on the "Wanted Team" webpage.

  • Aztec Challenge [Bignonia]: HOL

Phew, that was quite a bit of work... but I think that's all of them; if not then please let us know

Yeah maybe but...

...I don't really think it's a good idea to be adding in any ports that are still work in progress e.g:

a) Enduro Racer
b) Starquake

Let's wait until they're completed

Given the latest Atari ST port from master "meynaf", I've updated the 1st post with relevant details and also the above pack to include "Arctic Moves"

Finally, I've also added details of NovaCoder's awesome "DOTT" & "ScummVM" work to the 1st post

I guess I should also add all the "Bignonia" C64 conversion as well:

You know I've never played those, just from the screenshots they appear to be solid ports!

Are they complete and not betas / work-in-progress?

Also as I'm being lazy, you'll need to PM me details like:

a) port from what computer / console / machine.
b) the EAB thread.
c) etc.

I'll have an arcade port (though it's closest in spirit to the Playstation edition) to add to the list.. soon

Sounds friggin' awesome, can't wait

I am an arcade junkie at heart, trying to think what this game you're porting could possibly be...

From what you've said though a very rough guess would be Raiden / Raiden II / Raiden DX but that would be too much... I'd have a heart-attack

Aaah no not that awesome sadly (I wouldn't mind seeing if the Atari STE Raiden that's in progress can be ported to AGA though). It's a LaserDisc port.

Out of curiosity, why are these Bignonia games considered to be C64 ports as opposed to arcade ones? (Did they reverse engineer the C64 versions etc?)

Nothing that advanced - it's a Dragon's Lair clone, but one that's never been ported to the Amiga before.


Edit: If anyone wants a copy of the "release candidate 1" edition, I'll PM them with the download links. Requirements are:

- CD32, or
- KS 2.0, 2MB Chipram (MAY work in 1mb if you have very little running in the background), 68020, 450mb hard drive space (OR 2x speed CD-ROM)
