THEA500 Mini shows its true colours as THECD32 Mini!

I have stumbled across the degree to which THEA500 Mini is compatible with the CD32. It seems more compatible with the AGA console than with some old OCS platformers/run and gun games which can run too fast! Great progress has been made with this and to get the CD soundtracks playing really adds to the atmosphere. I am one of those people that finds it hard to play the original Speedball 2 because I like the atmosphere of the CD32 version's CD tracks that I played as a teenager. I also struggle with Worms: The Director's Cut because it has no soundtrack! Now I can play the CD32 version, again like I was used to!

Oh, that looks nice. I'l be trying it out this evening.

When it comes to Worms, I'm perfectly happy with Worms DC, even if it is missing a soundtrack. I seem to vaguely recall there being a soundtrack released for it on a CU Amiga cover CD at some point, or am I misremembering that?

Yes, the files were issued but the game never shipped the code to make use of it! I guess you can play the Worms 2 soundtrack on your smart speakers/phone while the play DC!

The CD32 version even allows you to play your own CDs while you play on real 'miggy hardware!
