First Amiga game you've played
« on: November 11, 2006, 05:35:25 PM »
Hi all,

I was expecting this kind of this question was already discussed here before, so I did an advanced search on the forums with "first amiga game played".

No hits relevant for this matter. So, proceeding :)

What was the first Amiga game you've played, and in what Amiga model ?

Honestly, I cannot tell precisely what mine was :-)

I think it was Saint Dragon on my A500.
(it could be also Battle Squadron or Golden Axe, since i've got the three along my A500 when I bought it)

So if you have clear memories than I, go ahead :)

Great question!

My first game was a beta of One-on-one on an Amiga 1000 in late '85.  

I was friends with the guys who later became Digital Creations.  They ported the program for Electronic Arts.  Actually, the sounds in the game were recorded at a Sacramento Kings game.

I'm always happy to beta!!

My first one was from Disc 63 CU Amiga called "Apocalypse"
I had an Amiga 600 at the time.

I can't remember exactly which game I played first. Before I got my own Amiga, I played a few times at a friend's house, where we used to play games we could do with 2 players. Our favourites were SWIV, Lotus Turbo Challenge II and Speedball 2.

When I bought my first A500, I copied a few of his games, and if I remember correctly in my first box of 10 disks were Lotus II, Speedball 2, Twintris, Cubix, Prehistorik, SWIV, Rodland, Turrican, and Miami Chase (LOVE! that game - especially the soundtrack :-D )

Xenon 1 on a friend's Amiga 1000. I was not impressed by the gameplay itself of that game, but I was already in love with the machine.

Nebulus on my A500.

Actually, my dad played it first. He picked the A500 up from Colchester Computer Center, near where I used to live, and took it back to the police station where he worked. He and his work mates set it up and played Nebulus, and they were absolutely amazed by the rotating "3D" tower. When we opened the A500 on Christmas day, that was the first game he said to play.

I still have very fond memories of that day, and still play Nebulus to this day :-)

Lost Dutchman mine... Maybe not the first game I played, but the first one I remember... What a great game...  On a a500 ofcourse.

Then I bought my own amiga and got really sad when I found out I needed another 512k memory to play it.

Lotus Turbo Challenge II
The only game we played on the Amiga 1200 as it was really reserved for a video titling machine, we played the game a couple of times a month and could we get onto the next stage? no, then my cousins came over and got to the third one first time, haha!

I bought several games when I got Amiga (500), don't remember which one was first: Super Cars 2, Gods, Chuch Rock, Centurion.
I didn't have joystick then, so guess it was Centurion.
Better sorry than worry.

Looks like the C64 game Tower Toppler. That's one of my favorite old games, I never knew there was an amiga version. Cool.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - The platformer.  It came with the A500 set that I bought.  It wasn't the best game I ever played on the Amiga but it showed off some nice graphics and sound.  It blew me away after the diet of C64 and Atari 2600 that I had been fed on until then! :-P

Shadow Of The Beast, on an A500 at a computer shop (Brighton Computer Exchange, in the UK - now long since gone). I was completely blown away by the graphics and sound and it was pretty much this that persuaded me to ditch the ST and upgrade to an A500!
