Flash Amiga game remakes galore

Monday, December 26, 2005

This entry has now been merged with my Amiga game remakes article so will no longer be updated
Last Thursday afternoon I was sitting in the office watching the seconds crawl by while I waited to be told I could finish early for the Christmas break. There was nothing to do because pretty much everyone we come into contact with during the course of a more typical day had either already sloped off through the back door or were in no fit state to make any demands of us - apparently there's alc-eee-hole in mulled wine. Who'd have thought?

Bored, tipsy and with time on my hands I started thinking about classic Amiga games, and more specifically, how many of them had been converted to Flash movies and uploaded to the web (it's only a matter of copying and pasting the source code into Swish, right Flash coders?). Finding out ought to kill a bit of time, I thought, so I set about Googling for the answer.

Would you believe some desperados actually go to the trouble of creating Flash buttons with the names of popular games written on them that link to affiliate shopping sites? The web just keeps on giving. Nevertheless, as boredom and idle hands beat spammers every time in the web equivalent of paper, scissors and stone, I emerged - weary and battle-scarred - but victorious.

The list below details all the byte for byte conversions, as well as homage style remakes, I managed to excavate and dust down from the spam-littered detritus of the web. As this appears to be the only list of its kind out there I'm hoping to make it as panoptic as humanly possible. If you can help to fill in any missing gaps please post your suggestions below.

Thanks for the link. Ironclaw has done an amazing job of making this lesser known classic accessible to the masses.

I've added it to the main remakes database as I no longer update this static list.
