Who said that the Commodore Amiga can't do a half-decent beat'em up? Here we have a masterpiece of a game by good, old Tynesoft.

I have the suspicion that it was a full-priced game, as well. There is a comment in Lemon Amiga from a guy who claims he spent 25$ on it. Poor guy.

What is even more interesting is that the coder was Jools (yes, from Cannon Fodder). Yikes!

For this one we take a look at the classic racing game, Stunt Car Racer, which is considered one of the best racing games on the Amstrad CPC (and on every platform to which it was ported to). Is it as good as it is thought to be?

PS. Some frames were sacrificed due to the brutal video capture process. The actual game is smoother than that.

This time it's Gods, the legendary Bitmap Brothers' game for the miggy. Does it truly deserve it's classic status or not?

For this episode, another venerated Amiga game gets the retro rant treatment. This time it is Myth, by System 3. Is it truly a gem or is it a stinker?

Yeah, such a wasted opportunity...hope the CPC version is better, because I see that it has different gameplay than the Amiga. And that can only be a good thing. :S

For this episode we have Oh Mummy, one of the first games to be ever released on the Amstrad CPC. Pure retro goodness!

For this episode we have a recent Amiga title from 2018, Powerglove Reloaded, which is actually a remaster of an earlier C64 game.
