Nice! What a find. Thank you!

I remember the Office World (last time I went back to visit it'd become a Staples), but I don't think I ever went in as a kid.

Now I'm trying to remember where...

Compared to other Amigas, I loved the A1200. We had a 500, 600, 2000 already when my dad bought the 1200, and I loved it. Most of my fondest gaming memories with the Amiga are on the 1200, and 4 of...

I'm going to assume someone has already mentioned ThunderCats, which I loved as a kid because I lacked, y'know, taste. It's not a game that holds up, though. Not even slightly.

No saves. The cheats work though, unless you're on the AGA/CD32 version in which case they're all reversed.

Some stray thoughts about Worms: The Director's Cut, WinUAE, and CD audio

Worms: The Director's Cut was released in the Spring of 1997, but if you bought the February '97 issue of CU Amiga (CD-ROM edition), you would have been treated to a ton of extra content for the game...

Oscar and Trolls were both absolutely wretched. I ended up with like 5 copies of Oscar at one point, and I genuinely don't know how that happened.
