Not really an Amiga version in the real sense of Amiga is it! How many box standard 'Amigas' came with GFX cards and needing a 600Mhz+ CPU's!! So this won't run on my A500 with ACA500+ACA1230 then

Awesome news Have had the opportunity to play the beta of this, and it really is excellent. It looks really good, and the Amiga version also has a scanline emulation option for some additional 16-bit retro feel.

Congratulations Benitosub and Daytona for bringing a fantastic creation into being.

No joke there, this game looks really good. I may need to pick up the Steam version in the meantime.

Tower 57 Amiga has been released and it is a great game!

The person involved in getting this on Amiga was Daniel Mußenner.
Unfortunately he will not get anything like the amount of money from this that his efforts warrant.
He does not get ANY of the money spent at the link to buy the Amiga version...

For this reason if you play or buy the Amiga version, then a PayPal donation to GoldenCode.eu would be a great thing to do.

Yes. It's exactly the hardware I use to play that game.

Can the title be altered to say "Amiga OS4 versioN" instead? Because as it is, it's slightly misleading.
Yes, it's an "Amiga", but it's not an -Amiga-, if you catch my drift.

This game looks great, I've been meaning to bag it on Steam for a while, but since I actually want to play it, I am kinda holding out on them maybe considering a PS4 version at some point.

It would still be misleading, because it also works on MorphOS and AROS. Executables for these three platforms are distributed in the same archive and all get installed at once. So, developers simply call it "Amiga" version while it really is something "NG Amiga compatibles" version, feel free to fight the term

Yeah, it's lovely game. We started to play it as two player game last weekend with my wife. We played it on MorphOS and I used mouse/keyboard while she used Dualshock4 pad.

We probably didn't get too far yet, but it seems to have awful lot of all kinds of details and stuff going on everywhere. Fun to explore. We got out of sewers, shopped and gambled around the ciry, and then went to pools, but should have been more careful there and died stupidly. Have to continue soon, we got hooked

Yes AmigaNG would be an apt moniker.
