This book brings so many fond memories of my time as a kid playing all those titles on my good ol' Amiga 600. Settlers, Pang, Lotus, Desert Storm.
It's a MUST BUY for any fan of Amiga who not only want to relieve their favourite game moments but also learn how Amiga was ahead of the time on the graphics department - something I had no idea about as a kid.
I have a confession to make. I never actually owned an Amiga. But I vividly remember the day I first saw one. It was a friend of the family's house, and it was running Shadow of the Beast. I remember almost nothing about the game, other than the fact it looked incredible, and that I had to see more Amiga games.
I never did acquire an Amiga, but I had a number of friends with one and managed to spend some time with the Batman movie game, James Pond and Turrican to name a few. Those were happy days, and a crucial starting point for my love of video games.
The highest praise I can give this book is that every page vividly transports me back to those days, and it's a very special feeling indeed.
Fantastically presented visual history of a very special series of computers
I was fortunate to own or have access to many different computers during 1980's and 1990's. This visual guide through games especially but also popular applications is an exceedingly high quality product, a well-researched topic and as much fun to pick up and browse as it is to read end-to-end.
