Cody's Wonderful Wall Of Amiga Games!

Welcome to Cody's Amateurish Photography of Amiga Game Boxes Section.

Firstly we have a wall of Amiga games that I constructed in my room. Unfortunately, it collapsed soon after, nearly crushing the cat.

Also, the photography is very blurry and rubbish.

Even worse, this time! Wings, Stardust and Dragon's Breath are all halved at the top. On the left is Captive and the three remaining ones are Mercenary 1 (cheap budget version), Mercenary 2: Damocles (full version) and Mercenary 3 (full version).

*Drools*

The only box which I've seen before would be the Ultima V one, and that's because it's the same as the C64 release except for the label on it.

It's fun to see boxes for games that I only knew as European cracked imports. Had they been around in my local software stores, I might have bought some of them.

My personal favorites are the original Infocom packages, especially the oversized folios. I don't think they ever released folio editions for Amiga, however.

Alas, my collection is only a small selection of the 3,500 Amiga games released (think of versions in different countries and budget versions too).

The boxes are at my parents' house, which is where I am at the moment, on a 56K modem!

They do take up a lot of space, as my parents keep noting. It's a struggle to stop them being transferred to the shed up the garden!

Ha-ha!

You must be a completist. I would personally recommend setting fire to that particular 'classic'.

More fun than playing it...

Impressive!!!!!!!!!

Anyone for a game of Jenga?

Me first, I'll pull out goal! :laugh

Or perhaps a game of real life arkanoid using a cricket bat and ball?

*hides as entire wall collapses *

Is that a computer desk hiding behind that wall cody? Seems like you've built yourself a little Amiga base LOL
