Is there a hard kicked A1000?
(maybe there is I don't know)

(BTW I think I saw Marble Madness first time exactly like that. But it wasn't the first game I witnessed I think)

Not sure which one was actually the first...but the first time I played games on an Amiga at my friend's home we played Blood Money, Defender of the Crown and Ports of Call....so these 3 games will always have a special place in my memories...

"Marble Madness Ultra HD Edition"? Seeing it required 256 MegaBytes(!) of RAM

One of my first memories of an Amiga game was walking into town into my computer shop that I went to regularly, and seeing an A500 showing a Shadow of the Beast 2 demo or something. The thing that struck me was the big, grandiose church organ theme that blasted from the monitor, and I'm puzzled that I've never been able to find it since.

Was it my imagination or not?

For fun I read the whole thread once again, and conclusion is the importance of Cinemaware and Psygnosis in making Amiga what it became

Red Heat

u(°_°U) ~~~begins to sweat nervously, has to take shirt off*
((. Y . ) )

When I bought my Amiga 500 it came in the original box and the previous owner included a couple of disks. F/A-18 Interceptor, Oil Imperium, and Red Heat. It's a rev6A with late '88 datecodes, and since I got it around '90 maybe the seller wasn't too impressed by Red Heat as the machine was passed on so quickly. Thankfully it didn't have the same effect on me and I ventured forth, finding joy in hobby gamedev, and Red Heat was forgotten... until now~

Mine was Marble Madness on my Amiga 1000 as well. Man, that brings back the memories.

For me, it all started with The Great Giana Sisters when my uncle brought along this new and fascinating computer tech called an "Amiga 500", some time in the late 80's

And when Turrican released, omg ... I couldn't let go! haha
