PrBOOM won! Really?!

I didn't realize that many people were playing it, perhaps I should get my ass in gear and finish up my Star Wars project then...

So where's the links to these great games anyhow?

Huh, The only game on that list that I recognize is BOH.  I didn't even know the others existed at all.  I wonder where I go to find about checking out these 68k games.  Are they free or is there a cost for them?  If anyone knows I would be appreciative.

WOW, still no links...

And you know what's sad, the majority of these games are just ports, though you'd be amazed at what can be done with PrBOOM. Nothing compared to GzDOOM of course, but amazing stuff none the less.

Anyhow, I found a link to those Zelda games which...

...don't seem to be in english. Woohoo. :/

PrBOOM for OS 4 can be found here (will this run on MorphOS as well, and does it support OpenGL?):

I voted for BOH for Aros, which I play on my laptop through Icaros all the time :)



I think it would be nice in future if there were links to each of the games on the voting list, some of the games there I didn't know about or couldn't find on Aminet. I hope we can all make lots more games to fill the voting for the next Amiga Games Award contest, maybe with our Retro Remix Game Making Competition.

It would be nice, but the hard truth is that it isn't possible. The reasons are explained in the following Qs/As taken from the website FAQ page:

***

Q16: Can you port BOH to this OS/machine?
A: The game already runs on 5 different OSes. At the moment, no further ports are planned.
Also, please keep in mind that:
 * I do not own all the OSes/machines that exist on Earth;
 * I do not have room for more machines;
 * I do not have money for more machines;
 * maintaining more versions would be too demanding;
 * commercially it would make little sense.

Q18: Can you port BOH to classic Amiga machines?
A: Getting classic CPUs and chipsets to run the game acceptably (and still with a noticeable loss of quality) would require a complete and specific implementation from scratch. And, like for handhelds, maintenance would be a nightmare. So, sorry, it is not possible.
Please note that it has been reported that expanded classic Amigas running AmigaOS 4 are able to run the game decently.

***

I've been asked to port BOH to various platforms many times, but there's only so much I can do. Moreover, I can't stick forever to BOH, since that doesn't provide me with a living.

Thanks for providing the link (:)), but that actually points to just a little interview on an otherwise unrelated site. BOH's official website is at http://www.bohthegame.com (where, among other things, much more interesting interviews can be found) ;)

Thanks, and I'm very happy you're enjoying the game!

On another note: I see your copy is still wrapped up in cellophane... great to see BOH in the hands of users! :)

Heya Saimo, I'm happy to be enjoying it :D I guess I like the collectable feel of it still being shrink wrapped, and I guess since the game was available to download once I purchased it online, I have been playing it since the day I paid for it, even before the packaged disc arrived. I think that's a great method of distribution, and I can still download and install each update you release which keeps the game interesting for much longer.

No wonder it came first, BOH is a great game, we're very lucky to have it! Plus it was the first commercial Aros game, so I just had to get it to enjoy on my laptop.
