3 Amiga classics go plug and play!
« on: January 22, 2005, 01:05:21 AM »

Check out the above link.  The games include SWOS, Cannon Fodder and Mega-lo-mania.

Looks interesting.  I wonder how Cannon Fodder and Mega-lo-mania will work as these pretty much need a mouse.

I think I want one of these for SWOS alone!  By the sounds of it, two players will be possible.

Can anybody find any more info??

SWOS and Cannon Fodder are being re-done for mobile phones too :-)

HTF are you going to play either SWOS or Cannon Fodder properly on a mobile phone?!

Plugging in a Suzo The Arcade or a Competition Pro isn't going to work I think...

I know what you mean.  But hey, some of those 3G mobiles are as big as a PSP!!

I wonder what hardware the games will run on?
It would be quite cool if it contained the old custom chipsets from the Amiga- it could possibly inject some outside enthusiasm to the platform, ala the c64 in a joystick.

@tangletown

Having read a few threads on that, it'll be highly unlikely to have Amiga custom chips.  Some would say impossible even.

It could still have a positive effect though as a lot of people will buy it cos they had an Amiga.  Even if it makes them do a google and find Amiga.org that's a good thing in my book. :-)

Maybe the same as the Megadrive-in-a-joypad???
I want a Cheetah:The Bug joystick to play SWOS with it was much faster than  Tac-2
