Switch from DOS to Amiga for some of the best titles

When we started with GamesNostalgia we didn't have a perfect solution for Amiga games, so for some of the most popular titles of the Commodore platform we decided to publish the DOS version (fully working, but not exactly the same thing).

Now that we have our cool solution and after receiving many requests, we decided to re-publish some of the best titles from scratch. As always we created the self executable packages for both Mac and Windows, using FS-UAE as emulator.

These are some of the titles that were previously available in DOS version for which you can now download the Amiga one: Lemmings, Lemmings 2: The Tribes, Moonstone: A Hard Days Knight, Gods, Bomberman (aka Dynablaster), Double Dragon, Double Dragon II: The Revenge and Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe.

More will come soon. If you have other requests, let us know. In the meantime, have fun!

Man you are geniuses. I so love your selfstarting files, and no game corrupt. I did reload many of my old games cause your version run without any trouble. So perfect. Very nice work guys, keep em coming.
Today I thought about "The Blues Brothers". How about Rick Dangerous 2? I have a lot of old files, but they seem to have one or two problems, flickering or something. You have all the files? Is it complicated to create these running versions? GJ

Oh, and how about one of the best games ever, Blood Money? I have a running ADF file, i guess....

Thanks so much Chris! Solving all these problems was exactly our mission, so we are happy you appreciated it. Blues Brothers and Rick Dangerous have been added to the todo list. It's not complicated but it takes some time because we usually test the games and adjust the config if necessary. Stay tuned and remember to support us with a donation!

I think it would be an interesting read for you to go through the process of creating your package. There is a lot the community could learn from that. Keep up the great work!

Thanks Panthros, we'll think about it. I'm sure we could receive many useful suggestions from the community. Anyway let me anticipate that there is nothing miraculous here. We automated part of the process, but all games are manually tested and there is always some adjustments to be done, sometimes more, sometimes less, but patience and passion are always required :)
