Can you believe there was a Super Famicom port of this that *didn't* feature Mario? Talk about wasted opportunity! This week on Amigos we take a look at a timeless puzzler that was out FIRST on the Amiga, Pipe Mania!

Links is a pretty divisive game. Some people think it's the best golf game on the platform, but for others its graphical feats are overshadowed by the incredibly long wait times between shots, even with a fast "modern" Amiga. What do you think?

Epyx released California Games as a side shoot from their popular series of Summer and Winter Games. A collection of mini games around sports you might have seen on an episode of Baywatch!

Does the #amiga offering hold up against the wide range of versions and more importantly.....is it any good?


Join the Amigos for their latest Amiga adventure.

Did you see this years Amigathon?


Just in case you don't know what it is, here is the info. Every year Amigos Retro Gaming puts on a fund raising event to help out the kids. We donate to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. It's 12 hours of Amiga related antics which has grown this year to include sections from both Amiga Bill and Retro Man Cave.


This year we managed to raise a stonking $5,370 which is our best total ever. Thank you to everyone who donated and got involved.


We have been posting the event chopped up into sections. This week it is the interview with David Pleasance as he talks about his latest book, From Vultures to Vampires.


Here is the Youtube video: [ Show youtube player ]


We hope you will join us for Amigathon 2021!

Hakuna Matata everyone.

Do you think that a Disney license and pretty graphics are all that is needed to make a good platform game?

An AGA machine only game which apparently doesn't use any AGA specific features? Any thoughts on that?

Join Boat and Aaron as they review The Lion King on the Commodore Amiga.

There is also a look at this weeks Amiga News and the usual banter!

Time for another chunk of Amigathon 2020.
This week we have the MOD competition. A contest for anyone to submit their music created on the Amiga. Protracker, OctaMED or whatever you use. Viewers voted on their favorites.

We had 6 entries here, do you agree with the results?

See the video [ Show youtube player ]

The latest Amigos episode has Aaron and Boat looking at Tiny Little Slug, a new OCS Amiga game. This is episode 262.

The news section features 10MARC's interesting approach to concealing his UnAmiga.

See the full video here: [ Show youtube player ]

Is it the Amiga's first slug based puzzle platformer and what do you think?

Time for some Roadkill!

The Amiga A1200 and CD32 only racer sure looks pretty with its multi layer scrolling but is it any fun to play?

Join Boat and Aaron as they find out.

Plus there is a look at a new SD adaptor for any Amiga and could the Gotek be about to be superseded?

Check out episode 263 here : [ Show youtube player ]

Operation Thunderbolt is the follow up to Operation Wolf and it manages to surpass the original on a technical front but does it prove to be more fun?



Boat and Aaron will take a look and find out. Take a look at the 1h15m full episode and also get up to date with this weeks Amiga News!
