The game has finally arrived. :) Very nice cover with cool booklet. You can see the Archos Zappo CD-ROM underneath.

Installing Tales of Gorluth on my Amiga 1200. :) You can see Filemaster in the background uncompressing the .LHA archive.

Review: Warblade (PC)

Old School Game Blog:

It’s been a few years since I published this post.. it was back in 2011! :) Thought maybe some of you newer readers would appreciate the review. My wife and I have started playing Warblade again – we just had a go and almost completed it on Hard-difficulty. In the old days we did it on Ace, but it takes time to get back on track with the game again. ;) Anyway, enjoy the review!

A Review of Warblade for PC’s running Windows

Introduction

WarbladeMany will remember the old Amiga classic called Deluxe Galaga. It is, as the title indicates, a Galaga clone. The creator of the game, Edgar M. Vigdal, lifts the Galaga-experience up to a whole new level with this game. There are plenty of secrets to be found, bonuses to fetch, and challenges to face.

A few years ago, Edgar M. Vigdal released a game called Warblade for the PC. It is basically a powered up version of Deluxe Galaga, with several improvements. The game has seen many updates since its first release. These added more stuff and/or fixed bugs.

In this article we’ll have a look at how Warblade plays and if it’s just as good as Deluxe Galaga.

Hello everyone,

Remember the legendary strategy game called UFO: Enemy Unknown from MicroProse? I surely do. I played the Amiga version back in the day, but did also try the PC one later on. A great experience. For those of you wondering what this game is about, it is basically orientated on organizing human resistance against alien invaders. You build bases, scan for UFO’s and intercept them, hire troops and research various technologies. The game has a lot of depth, details and possibilities – it really pulls you in!

The good news is that a remake of the original UFO game has been released on the 14th of June 2014! Check out the video below for more info:

The official homepage of OpenXcom can be found here.

Anyone going to try it out? :)

Thanks for reading and see you later!

TAWS: The Amiga Workbench Simulation

Nice picture by Kazik/Anadune from the demo “The Sunrise”. It is unrelated to the post below, but looks so cool that I felt the need to include it nonetheless.

Greetings,

Ever wanted to get a bit of the “feeling” of the AmigaOS 4.x, but don’t know where to try it? Then you’ll be happy to know that a guy by the name Michael Rupp has made an Amiga Workbench Simulation – and it’s Online!

Check it out for yourself:

Did you enjoy it? :) I don’t know what plans the author has for the simulation yet, but it certainly has some potential when it comes to marketing AmigaOS.

And do you like the picture at the top of this post? Great Amiga-art from the Polish artist Kazik.
