My A1200 Wishes You A Good Morning!

Good morning everyone,

Took a few photos of my Amiga 1200 in action this morning. Running the EXCELLENT adventure game from Lucasfilm Games, Maniac Mansion! I love most of the old point and click adventures, like Zak McKracken, Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade and so forth.

Anyway, my Amiga 1200 says good morning to you with these pictures:

Thanks for visiting my blog and have a nice Sunday! πŸ™‚



  1. Summer is awesome this year indeed. Getting little tired of that heat though πŸ˜‰
    I was never into PowePC much but that news sound cool anyway. Watching a demo in an emulator window is way more fun than watching it on youtube πŸ™‚


  2. Very nice! I heard the Amiga/PC version of Maniac Mansion was a little better than what was ported to the NES.


    • Thanks. πŸ™‚ The Amiga version is great, but I have never seen the NES-version in action. I would believe it would be a pain using a gamepad for such a game though – much easier with a mouse!


      • The NES version has a weird control scheme. Although explaining it is a bit harder than actually showing it. I think they might’ve taken some things out of the game for the Nintendo version, as for what I do not know since I haven’t played the original version.


  3. Yes! Maniac Mansion and Zak McKraken were my favorite games for years and years! I could never beat Mansion as a kid so I spent a month or so drawing up all of the environments and where items were located. This makes me want to find a copy again somehow…
