Question Bignonia games

Bignonia was a group of Dutch C64 enthusiasts who converted old C64 classics to Amiga. In most of their titles they added extra levels to it to extend the lastability.

I am curious which C64 games they have programmed to Amiga. These are the Bignonia games I know:
- Aztec Challenge (Cosmi, 1983)
- Donkey Kong (Nintendo, 1982)
- Frantic Freddie (ODS, 1982)
- Pharao's Curse (Broderbund, 1984)
- Popeye (1983)
Is this list complete or have they programmed more C64 games for Amiga?

I think they made a Zaxxon conversion too.

Yep. Here's a shot of the menu to chose graphics

BTW I didn't know they had convertet Aztec challenge nor Pharao's curse.

Hmm I just noticed in the lower right there's a list of their games. Never saw Bagitman either.

Smile C64 games

Thanks for the screenshot, Drake. It sure brings back some memories. I never knew Zaxxon has made its way to Amiga.
I remember I had Bagitman once on my Amiga. I quickly got bored by it. But then again, the original C64 game wasn't too good to start with.

Do you know whether the other games you could vote for have made it to Amiga?

Some of those Bignonia games can be grabbed from Aminet as well, you know.

I also think a few of the games reside at World Of Classics too, but I could be wrong.

Arrow Slow motion

Thanks for the adresses, Marz.
Since I have an ancient PC which isnít capable running Amiga emulators at a comfortable speed, I havenít spent much time looking for sites where I can get ADFs. This will change in the near futureÖ
