Space Quest IV Amiga version longplay

I've been playing a lot of Sierra games lately and I thought I'd play the Amiga version of one and make a longplay.

Space Quest IV for the Amiga is an absolutely rubbish port. The graphics are very awful, it's slow as hell on a normal A500 (and even on a normal A1200) and playing it from floppies is pretty much unbearable.

I recorded this emulating an accelerated Amiga in order to get the speed decent. This is a longplay of the WHDload version as I didn't want to swap floppies and all that.

Here are the links -

Part 1/7 (introduction)
Part 2/7
Part 3/7
Part 4/7
Part 5/7
Part 6/7
Part 7/7


EDIT - I wanted to upload this one to Recorded Amiga Games but that site won't let me log in no matter what I do

Just finished watching.

Nice video, but you are right, horrible horrible graphics.

Oh yeah, and I still refuse to comment on YouTube, cause YouTube sucks.

You watched the entire thing?

The horrible Amiga ports of 256 color Sierra games is actually the reason why I bought a PC

Sad too cos the Amiga can do 256 colours games very well. Look at the Eye Of the Beholder remake.......
