Amiga History Lesson of Doom
« on: October 04, 2014, 03:11:10 PM »
News from: http://www.doomworld.com

"
Ant sends word of a video posted today to the Ahoy YouTube channel: Doomed: The Embers of Amiga FPS. It's a history lesson of sorts where you can learn about the many Doom clones created for a hardware platform that was nearing the end of its life cycle at the time."

Thanks, I enjoyed it too! What a great trip down history lane, and in the very time period when I was finally able to afford my first Amiga. Aside of making music that was my other goal (as lame as that may sound), which was to own an Amiga powerful enough to play all the FPS' on it in high resolution and without slow down.

Somehow they missed HereticII but they have mentioned all or at least most of the other FPS.

Thx, got it. The PC version is 16bit, so goodbye. But on Amiga Forever - nostalgia rises!
