About Babylonian Twins:
Babylonian Twins is a platform computer game that was originally developed for the Commodore Amiga between 1993 and 1994 but was never released due to the demise of Commodore. The game was developed in Baghdad-Iraq during the difficult economic sanctions period. The game is considered to be the first commercial game ever developed in Iraq and that region.
The author, main programmer and project lead is Rabah Shihab, at that time, a student at the computer engineering department at Baghdad University. He developed the game with his friends Murtadha Salman, a talented artist and a student at the Architecture department at Baghdad University, and Mahir Hisham, a talented musician and a medical student at the same university.
The game was developed using only one Amiga 500 computer, with mostly 500KB of memory and no hard drive. It was written entirely in MC68000 assembly language with direct programming of the Amiga custom chip set. A custom map editor was developed to design the game levels.
