Update 30-12-2010
Death Trap One day to go and it is goodbye 2010, hello 2011. Twenty years(!) ago the Amiga was at its commercial & creative height with 30 new games on average being released each month including some landmark titles like Lemmings, Populous 2 and Turrican 2.
Less-known titles went below the radar but I am glad I discovered them after all and played them for hours just to grab pictures for this site. I am talking about Death Trap and Duck Tales: two highly addictive games sporting great graphics and music.
I wish you all a happy, healthy and playable 2011!

Update 14-11-2010
A new month with a new update. This time I've updated and added reviews of games starting with a "C"...

I also took the courage putting Cannon Fodder 2 online - a game of which I do not have fond memories... ;) It was waaay too hard. Playing it all those years after in an Emulator using a trainer, the game is even tougher than I remember. But at least I could grab some nice pictures of the Chicago-levels (See picture on the right - taken from Level 13 if I remember correctly). It is remarkable how well the game was still received by the press despite no new features and a full asking price.
