Shadow of the Beast includes emulated Amiga original

Quote from VG 24/7

"Shadow of the Beast is a new PS4 game from Heavy Spectrum, inspired by the classic Amiga release of the same name.

Many of you may not have been born when it came out, and others will still have been too young even for the sequels that followed in the early 90's. Do not fear, and do not go looking for a ROM: the full original game is included via emulation as an unlockable bonus in the remake.

Since the original Shadow of the Beast is kind of a nightmare for we soft modern gamers, Heavy Spectrum has added an infinite lives mode as well as some other as yet undisclosed features to make it easier to battle through, although these can be disabled for masochists.

Announcing this feature on the PlayStation Blog, Heavy Spectrum revealed Ian Livingstone is behind the soundtrack, which will be available as a free download from the PlayStation Store. It reworks elements and themes from the original soundtrack, so it will be interesting to be able to compare the two in one package."

Quote from link about

"One of the most famous Amiga games of the late 80s is transformed into a stunning new adventure that plays as good as it looks. Shadow Of The Beast is the game I've been dreaming of for 27 years. Before saving up enough money to buy an Amiga 500 computer I would spend so much time staring wistfully at screenshots and previews that I ended up literally dreaming about it, or at least the game I imagined it to be. The real thing was hugely disappointing: beautiful but shallow, and so petulantly difficult it seemed purposefully designed to crush my dreams. But this reimagining is the game I always hoped Shadow Of The Beast could be, and it is glorious."

Sure, but with subpixel precision.

I got this game too and I do like it.

The original game set the bar higher as far as graphics and sound on the Amiga platform.

I don't think this is all that for the PS4, but I don't regret it for $20.

Here is a link to the US version:
