Internet News   Internet News : Amiga Games That Weren't launched
   posted by Duke on 31-Oct-2005 12:31:00 (2490 reads)
Amiga Games That Weren't is a website dedicated to lost Amiga games, that were for some reason not released. Their first case is Son Shu Shi, a platform game similiar to Super Wonderboy. The complete game is now available, thanks to the help from a friend of the original programmers, the Software Preservation Society (Disk mastering), Codetapper (WHDLoad install) and Adrian Simpson (investigation).

FINALLY!

I'm a fan of the C64 Games that Weren't, and I was eagerly awating for this site since it was announced more than a year ago. Thank you!

Very interesting. I like the "under construction"-boing ball.

@ Teddy,

How about NHL and Mutant Heague Hockey?

I've heard that Ocean started to convert them around the same time they released a couple of other EA games.

The Retro Gamer magazine had a column with the very same name...

Although that was a multi-format magazine, issues 15 and 16 featured a couple of games that should have been relesed on the Amiga as well, including Flood 2, Duffy Duck and Universal Monsters (this last one looks impressive).

*The retro editor of GamesTM magazine is liasing with one of the coders behind the Amiga version. Fingers crossed people!

Too right. I intend to e-mail these guys with some nominations, and that will be one of them.

BTW, if you were a RG reader, I recommend you check out www.retrosurvival.co.uk
