Well, I had a coverscan of this game and something kept making me think it was on the Amiga. I spent a long time trying to trace any kind of reference to an Amiga version and all I turned up was dead ends, so I finally resolved that I musta been thinking of some other game.

Actually, I haven't checked my email all week. Yahoo totally messed me up. They keep changing their policies. I got forced into upgrading Eudora so I could reply to emails. That version doesn't even work worth a damn for me. And now Yahoo says they're killing all free pop3 support anyhow, so I upgraded (downgraded) for nothing. Getting mail for me now is a pain in the arse, but I will mess with it tonight after work. I was gonna do that last night, but I was invited to an orgy and had to accept (I couldn't, after all, be rude...)

re: hyperspeed i think your right it prob didnt come out for the amiga, but the docs that ive got did come from an amiga cd and are 99% as far as i can tell amiga docs. theres another game in there which i seem to remember a bit of debate about whether it existed on the amiga or not

enduro racer..?

Enduro Racer was/is one of my fav games on the Amstrad CPC and I spent more than a year searching for an Amiga Version, but today Im pretty sure it never made its way to the Amiga, only on these Systems :

AmstradCPC (1987)
AtariST (1987)
C64/C128 (1987)
ZXSpectrum (1987)

Not sure about the PC, but Enduro Racer is definitely not on the Amiga. Perhaps these guys that put together docs disks would cop some of the docs from PC BBS's and the same sounds like something that is on the Amiga, so they grab it anyhow. I've seen that a few times.

With so much information on the internet, it would sure be nice if someone tried creating a robust video games database in the style of Internet Movie Database. That would make knowing which platforms a game was published for an easier to reference task. Mind you, HOL will be just that for *Amiga* games, and that project is big enough. For us hardcore types, it's plenty enough work to comprehensively cover one platform. But just imagine going to IMDB and having it be what it is already, only with video games instead of movies. That would be so sweet.

Of course, this has indeed been attempted. Check out All Game Guide. Their heart was in the right place. I was a member of that team for a very short while. I was modifying some of the data and uploading images to their ftp (for several platforms), but all at once the info and images never got implemented. They were added once, maybe twice and then nothing. No clue what happened. Within a couple of months, the Amiga section had a few more titles added to the listings, but those seemed to only be from entries of the same game on another platform (and whomever input that data noted that it was also available for the Amiga). Frustrated, I just bailed and hooked up with EAB. The HOL will do all for Amiga games that AGG does for games in general, only much more. I know you guys are antsy to see the HOL Amiga database in action, but in order for it to be done right, it requires a massive amount of pre-production so that all possibilities for the future are considered (to prevent having to re-code the entire database at some future time). It will truly be worth the wait. But I digress...
