Neat. I tried it on Dreamcast some time ago, but it wasn't a very good port. There was a lot of tearing, which is inexcusable for a game like this on such powerful hardware.
It was fun though, and seemed perfectly suited to the Amiga.

Ace, I shall have to try this ASAP. The downloads page says OS4.0 though? I've only got 3.1 but if it's supposed to boot from disk on an A500 I take it that's not really true.

The Amiga ADF download isn't on their official site yet, but they posted a link to it on Pouet.net from their Facebook page. You can download the ADF from here - http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=59951

You need a working floppy drive and a spare disk though.

Talk about addictive, you just have to keep giving it one more shot to see if you've worked out the sequence yet. Runs great on all the Amigas here, A500, A1200 and CD32.

os4.0? this game is meant for amiga! it even works on aros68k kickstart, but you need a genuine amiga or an uae. tried on winuae with 040-aga setting and it works.

Availability of floppy disks is my problem... can anyone recommend an ADF explorer type program either for Linux or Amiga?
