Very, very good news for you this evening. 😀

Battle Squadron was originally developed by Cope-Com for the Commodore Amiga Home Computer in 1989 and received numerous awards making it an instant Amiga Classic. In 2011 Come-Com released Battle Squadron for iOS mobile devices, and in 2012 for Android with our partner GoldenCode.eu.
We are now happy to announce that together with our partner GoldenCode.eu we are returning to the Amiga… making Battle Squadron available on Amiga OS 4.X, in addition to Mac and PC. Battle Squadron is available through both digital download and a pre-order special collectors edition with the signature from the original developers and the coder making it possible to return to Amiga OS 4.X.
The collectors edition contains all desktop versions: Amiga OS 4.X, Mac, and PC. The new desktop version is an exact replica of the original famed Amiga game, just as it was for iOS and Android. In addition, the desktop version has great new features… still matching the original retro style.
I’m definitely going to get this one, no doubt about that. 🙂 Anyone else out there hungry for this game?
Have a good evening and thanks for reading!
Hiya! thanks for coming by recently – haven’t seen you in a while. I see you’re still going strong! You know, I still remember playing ping pong – it was mesmerising (talking old school…).
Thanks to you as well for popping in. 🙂 Pong is fun, still today. I got a great Atari device consisting of two paddles that you hook up to the TV. Contains about 20 old-school Atari games. Lot’s of fun! Pong is in there as well.. 😉
How sweet. I bet your joint is GREAT FUN.
I can’t count the hours I lost playing Battle Squadron in my younger days – genius.
Hi there! Thanks for commenting. 🙂 Yes, was a lot of fun back (and still is.. hehe..) then. Looking forward to have a go at the new version for AmigaOS 4.x. Will post a review once it is up and running.
