Special Event Game of the Month / Special Event - Christmas 2022 - Psycho Santa

Special Event for Christmas 2022 is Psycho Santa!

A cover disk game, from Amiga One magazine. It really was a golden time for free Christmas related games. In this game you start by trying to throw presents in the house whilst dodging all sorts of weird enemies whilst even throwing snowballs at the ghost of Christmas past, if you succeed you are given a bonus level of trying to grab presents off a tree whilst bouncing on a pogo stick (What was the designer smoking??) This sequence just repeats and gets harder, ranked high as I love the pogo stick!

  • Release Year: 1991

AGA Game of the Month / December 2022 - Total Carnage
« Last post by NinjaKat on November 30, 2022, 07:57:42 am »
AGA Game of the Month for December 2022, is Total Carnage!

The war of 1999 left the country of Kookistan in shambles. Naturally, a dictator named General Akhboob took control of the beleagured nation and began creating an army of radioactive mutants. With a virtually impenetrable stronghold, a bunch of hostages, and a legion of mutants under his command, the evil despot will stop at nothing but world domination. Only two men have the courage and idealistic naivete to take on Akhboob and his forces: Captain Carnage and Major Mayhem, also known as the Doomsday Squad.

As Captain Carnage or Major Mayhem, it is up to you or you and a friend (in simultaneous action) to rescue the hostages while shooting hundreds of mutants bent on your destruction. As you walk and run forward, backward, left, right, and diagonally through 20 battlezones of nonstop action, you'll always have your machine gun by your side. Additional weapons which you can find along the way include grenade launchers, rocket launchers, plasma machine guns, flame throwers, spray-fire rifles, defensive blades, and an assortment of bombs.

Information:
  • Amiga Hardware: AGA
  • Release Year: 1994
  • Disks: 3
  • WHDLoad: Yes
  • Players: 1 or 2, simultaneous

OCS/ECS Game of the Month / December 2022 - Turrican 3

OCS/ECS Game of the Month for December 2022, is Turrican 3!

From Amiga Computing - December 1993 (page 112) - Score - 90%

Time has passed since mankind last heard of The Machine. Bren McGuire is on a United Planets Freedom Forces mission when suddenly he sees his worst nightmares come true again. Years ago, he was the only survivor of the starship Avalon 1 when The Machine took out his comrades in an attempt to take over the galaxy. Back then, Bren sought revenge against his enemy and finally destroyed him in the planet of Landorin. Nobody expected a return of The Machine, but now, after many people enjoyed freedom and peace in the galaxy, the dark forces under his command are starting to assemble again.

In a sweep of terror, The Machine destroys dozens of planets and enslaves hundreds of peaceful people. The old memories arise again when Bren hears the last message of a young and beautiful girl. Desperately she cries for help, as her planet is being taken over by the soldiers of The Machine. As Bren receives the message, he slips into his Turrican assault suit and swears final revenge.

Once again, Bren McGuire, now the current leader of the Freedom Forces, is the only hope in a crucial mission to definitely destroy the grasp of evil represented by The Machine. A lone warrior against the evil hordes of The Machine, Bren jumps out of his ship to face the ultimate challenge.

Oh Boy! sounds like a battle to get it going! I was hoping to get to them on time this month given the fantastic efforts to get them online so early! But with the present life changes going on I don't think i am going to get to it!

Fingers crossed I may just get a moment if i get to go to the meeting!

Well, best tonight is 1760.  I just could not work out how to direct the brick munch move (when you get the big puck)...  the only time I progressed was when I fluked it.  I think it was level 5 where I got stuck...

ok, found a working ADF and now playing on the A500 mini!  ;D  Will put a link in the description.
Wow, good score joey, I don't think I will be able to match that... not sure if it is my joystick or lack of skill... probably the latter.
I will try!

Thanks for the post joey!  I tried to get this going last night on my A500 mini with no success.  The ADF linked in the description worked but as the filename suggested it crashes after level 1...
The LHA version tries to boot using WHDLoad but as it is an installer it does nothing (slave not found).
Anyone know how to get running on A500 mini?
