Commando, Amiga

The 1989 Amiga version of Capcom‘s classic Commando was ported and published by Elite Systems, and it’s not too bad, although it’s definitely not perfect.

Paperboy, Amiga

The 1989 Amiga conversion of Paperboy is better than the Atari ST version of the game, in my humble opinion. The main reason being that it uses most of the screen and thus gives the game a more authentic feel.

Sinbad and the Throne of the Falcon, Amiga

I don’t know why, but the Amiga version of Cinemaware‘s classic Sinbad and the Throne of the Falcon looks absolutely terrible. The graphics are appalling and the presentation overall is very rough around the edges. Compare it to the Commodore 64 version and it’s easy to see the disparity.

Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe is the 1990 sequel to The Bitmap Brothers Speedball. The game makes several changes to the original Speedball, but the main change is that teams now have nine players on-field (eight outfield players and a goalkeeper), instead of the previous five.
