New Retro News: 10,000+ Amiga games ready to play

For the 2 people with even a passing interest in video games that haven’t heard yet: The Internet Archive has recently made over 10,000* Amiga games available.

R-Type

What this means is that you can play the games, right now, practically in a single click. No emulators, fiddly settings, BIOS files to worry about.

Update: Well, that was quick – all the games have been taken down. According to the Internet Archive: “After a beta-testing period, the emulated Amiga programs at the Archive have been taken down for further development.”

About J.C

I grew up in the dark dingy arcades of the 1980s, blasting heads with Robocop 2, but grew up in an era that spanned the introduction of the x86 home computer, through to the 16-bit revolution, into the polygon age and beyond. I write about food, travel and of course, New Retro Games. I started newretrogames.wordpress.com and contribute to www.thecitylane.com. I am also a freelance business researcher, writer, and editor having published academic and corporate articles on innovation and intellectual property.
