Some fond memories from BITD... all day out and about with your mates' on your bike and the evening spent playing on the Amiga :cool:

Xenon II...

LED storm

Turican

Pinball Dreams?

Remember the Atari ST/ Amiga Demo groups?

I managed to get an Atari ST when Amstrad were still flogging their 464 for the same price (including crap desk, crap printer and crap monitor). I inherited an Amiga off my mate when he upgraded.

I was heavily into Amiga gaming, Armour-Geddon and Mercenary were favourites. Often thought about picking one up on the bay and getting back into it. Todays console games are sooo easy in comparison.

Turican and Pinball Dreams were awesome, don't remember LED Storm

I think you were either an Amiga or ST man... firmly Amiga on my estate even tho' some of my mates' were using the Atari to make rave music. Harrier Attack on the 464, tantamount to genius 8) 8)

I had TCB Tracker for the ST and ran a few bits and pieces through the midi ports, if I remember rightly Betty Boo did her whole first album on one...preferred the Amiga for games

Mind you playing Lazer Squad on the Spectrum 128 all night with a bunch of mates was good fun.

Budbrain 2 (a little bit NSFW)

Cebit demo from Red sector

Remember Xcopy with the hardware dongle?

Remember Soundtracker?

awww... Seems like only last week I fired up the Amiga... it didn't work but it was last week :(

p.s. There is an Amiga Emulator for the PC if you can get it working.

This is an interesting read if you were ever into Amigas:

I had one too New Zealand story, Stuntcar racer and Speedball 2 were the biz. I'd love to find some online versions.
