Yes:

Arctic Moves is the 3rd in the series but never came out on the Amiga.

I love how the box has Arnie from film Commando on it. Looks like he's a long the bottom of the screen as well during the game

This Karateka game is awesome! I remember playing on a C64 somewhere (or was it Apple II), and found it already good. But the ST version is excellent. Great work.

Gauntlet is also very well ported.

I tested the other ports, and I'm sure they're faithful, but of course disappointing because hey, they're ST versions

I'm surprised you haven't played any of these ports previously jotd.

More information in this thread, which I'm sure I've mentioned to you before: Ports / Conversions --> Amiga

Yeah, I knew those existed a while ago, it's just that I didn't take time to test them. The technical feat to convert from the ST and respect the AmigaOS too beats me. You have to know both machines very well to be able to do such things. and when something goes wrong, well, ... go figure!

I'm not an avid player but I think I'll retry Karateka. It is so great and reminds so much of the latter Prince of Persia. J. Mechner is so talented!

Indeed, although from what I remember reading he was only responsible for the original Apple II versions of the games, ports have been done by other people.

I only ever played on the ST before so to have this on my Amiga is excellent and makes me very happy.

I really want to fucking kill that bastard Vulture! It's a pain in the foot!

Other news,

@Meynaf and @DamienD
I have been messing with configuring my Apollo 1260 last week or so. I do not know if this is anything to do with it but I was using the same CF Hard drive earlier but in WINUAE and suddenly Artic Moves was alright again and totally playable and quick enough. None of this waiting 10seconds every time I jump in the air! I couldn't believe it. So then I tried it but on my real Amiga.

Holy shit it's working again!

I dunno if doing stuff to the Apollo worked or it just was a fluke but either I'm now able to enjoy it properly.

So on Mission one what the hell am I supposed to use the lift for? All tips appreciated.


I would not object to the ide of a WHD load version of this by the way, it would still be useful even if I did get my version working again. So pleased.

Thank you for these ports Meynaf
I been messing with

It's very difficult game. I can do the first part of Mission 1 ok, but there are some tricky bits with the lifts.

Watch the gamemaster hipoonios' YouTube video here:

It's doable, just takes practice and you need to be real quick after hitting that switch

As mentioned, I can complete the first part of Mission 1 ok; afterwards it becomes way too complex for me...

hipoonios makes it look sooooo easy, but he is the gamemaster

Made the jump on the lift!

On the first part of Mission 1 there are 5 x radar stations you need to find / blow up. Of course you also need to find 5 x bombs.

These aren't that hard to find, just explore a little

Anyway, can a GMod please move all "Arctic Moves" discussion to a thread under the "support.Games" section?
