Really looking forward to this, used to love this back in the day!! Last version I played was for my Amiga CD 32. What a long time ago that is.

Looking forward to this, have a lot of great memories of playing it round at my mates house on his amiga between Speedball 2 and Sensi Soccer marathons.

Great news and a decent price too! :D

Wow, that brings back memories: Alien Breed, Dungeon Master, Speedball, Pinball fantasies, Shadow of the Beast, Sensible Soccer, Silkworm...I'll stop there as it'll just show my age.
Yes kids, games used to come in boxes made of Real cardboard! :lol:

This had the greatest cheat codes ever on the amiga. Like typing "Iwonderifdollypartonsfannyisasbigashertits".
I mean total genius! Can't remember what it did, but I was at that juvenile age where I found it hilarious... once I'd gone to find out who dolly parton was.
*sigh* happy days!

I loved my amiga, two games that always stand out in my memory are Flood, an early Bullfrog title which I loved and Wizball, I think Ocean were responsible for that little gem.

Happy days...

Alien Breed 2 on the Amiga 500 was one of my favourite games ever. So fun and a bit scary too. I used to play it back to back with Speedball 2, another absolute cracker.

I played this a month back at the Eurogamer Expo, was great. Especially in CO-OP and it looks graphically pleasing as well.

Amiga days rocked and will never be bettered!

It will be out on PSN, T17 just have some timed 360 exclusive deal, not sure how long though!?

I would love them to also release a compilation of all the originals!
That would be awesome!

I'm jealous. Will this be coming out on PC?

The originals were great at the time and I think I finished the first one, can't remember much of the others. I have it for an emulator now. (How I ever finished it I have no idea because I'm crap at it now) Still great, but there is a bit of rose-tintedness going on. Some things are better left in the past.
