Unofficial CD32 Release - Psygnosis : The Complete Amiga Works

2016 is the 30th Anniversary of Psygnosis' first Amiga game 'Brataccas'. Psygnosis were one of the most influential Amiga publishers over the 10 years they published for games for it. Many will recall Shadow Of The Beast being one of the major turning points to setting the Amiga aside from the Atari ST, PC and other home computers at the time.

As mentioned Psygnosis were the joint longest supporting Publishers for the Amiga, having supported the platform with releases over 10 years from 1986 to 1995, they were also in the top 5 Amiga Publishers of total unique game releases.

For the last 3 month's on and off, I've put this huge collection together, and unlike other compilations from years past, this time each and every game is playable on a stock CD32, yes my hair is thinner because of it (curse you Armour Geddon II!).
All my other releases I've made every game compatible with the cd32 pad, but due to the sheer amount of games and wanting a complete collection this unfortunately isn't possible, with some games requiring too many keyboard commands to fit on the CD32 pads 7 buttons! But still over 50 games are playable just with the CD32 pad, 10 or so need a mouse and around 5 titles also need
a keyboard, details of all these can be found in the readme, they are also listed on the CD so you know before you load each game.

Each and every game has been tested to try and bring you the best control method for the CD32 controller if possible with many games having controls mapped to the CD32 pad, along with improvements in some games i.e Globdule now runs at 60fps, and Red Zone runs at a more acceptable speed!

Game Selection Screen


There's too many games too list on this blog post what's on the disc, the full list can be found in the readme included in the download;

But the main premise of the disc includes;
  • 68 full released games (+Microcosm on Disc 2)
  • 1 full unreleased game
  • 2 demos of unreleased games
  • 2 demos with unique levels not in full releases
  • CDTV Psygnosis Demo
  • Musical Slideshow of other Unreleased Games
  • Musical Slideshow of Psygnosis Box Art

Download is on the eab server uploads/cd32 folder*

Yeah it may have been small in the grand scheme of things, but it was the last hurdle to finish it! I did thank everyone involved in the readme, it was just too big to repost everything here or on the blog!

i'm downloading right now, thank you, not only for this release, but for all the others too, your efforts are not unappreciated...

out of interest, how difficult would it be to put together a CDTV disc?

Cheers!

I'm not sure, i guess a few files would need to changed for startup, cd32load couldnt be used, so the real problem is the lack of memory <1mb i guess some 512k games via whdload may be possible, others booted directly, i guess thats why there isn't too many CDTV homebrew discs around, i did own one years ago but sold it again.
Earok was making a Test Drive disc a few months back i'm not sure if he completed it or not, but he would be someone to ask.

Hello and a big thanks for this great compilation from one of my favorite game producers. But...the FTP is too slow, 6BK only, is it possibly to upload a mirror to a one click hoster?

Thanks for your help!

Welcome to EAB deaddisk

It's possibly due to this and "Heart of the Alien" being released.

Did you try the mirror also? See the 1st post of the EAB File Server thread for more details

I could not control Brataccas.

No fault of the CD --- I could not with a Disk Image either.

Yeah tell me about it! I spent a few hours trying to get it working on the CD32 pad, but it still wasn't working very well, in the end I had to give up, the best way is to use a mouse, like a lot of early Psygnosis games the movement was like a RTS movement, you had to wait until the animation finished before attempting to move again...
