[Sticky] F.A.Q. and CD32 free games list

Q: Download X no longer works
A: Mega occasionally has issues with downloads. If it doesn't work, give it a few hours and try again. If it still doesn't work, note the exact message and game and leave a comment on the post. Also - use Firefox or Chrome rather than IE or Safari.

Q: I can't burn the CUE/ISO for download X
A: "Burnaware Free" is my default, which I find extremely reliable. "ImgBurn" seems to be less reliable, but has a lot more features (eg support for burning ISOs).

Q: Game X is unplayable with the PSX Adapter
A: Some games are entirely incompatible with the adapter in CD32 mode, try playing it in the 1 or 2 button configuration.

Q: Do these work on a real CD32?
A: Yes, in every case they've been tested on a CD32, although I haven't checked each and every single game on the 160 game compilation.

Q: In some platformers, you need to press up to jump. Can you make it so that on all platformers you can press a button instead?
A: We can't, simply because adding that functionality usually requires a custom patch in the WHDLoad slave, and implementing these is beyond my current technical ability. Normally, if this ability exists in the WHDLoad slave (eg Giana Sisters), I'll enable it. The best solution is using a third party controller like the AmiPad 32 where spare buttons are mapped to up, or the PSX adapters by Paul Willingham and Kipper2K that allows you to custom map buttons to up.

Q: On some games, the screen flashes repeatedly.
A: This is an unfortunate consequence of games that were only designed to load from floppy disc being loaded through WHDLoad or JOTD startup. Since the release of JOTD's "CD32 Load", some of these games can be loaded with far shorter times.

Q: Would you consider porting game X?
A: Absolutely, just let us know what games you'd like to see and we'll consider them. A few things to keep in mind however -
  1. We absolutely will not port games that are still for sale through ACP&TCP, AmigaKit etc
  2. Certain games we can't currently do due to technical limitations on a stock CD32, eg Primal Rage, Onescappe, Doom. We may consider doing these for SX-32 owners at a later date.
  3. We usually don't do games that are unplayable without the keyboard (we'd only make an exception to this for special cases, such as SOTB2 on the larger Shadow of the Beast collection)
  4. We do prefer doing games that we can bundle bonuses into, such as a new CDXL intro or one ported from a different version of the game.

This is an WIP attempt to provide a list of all currently available free CD32 ISO downloads, either unofficial releases or official ones that aren't on emulator sites, torrent sites etc. If we're missing any, please let me know in the comments below.

  • Scenery: the small pyramids now have rounds heads
  • Scenery: removed half of the cracks in the bricks
  • Removed coins in exit doors (you can now just walk in door to exit)
  • Removed jump sound (interfered with music)

All games
  • Pad control is now default
  • Menu control information now shows a big CD32 Pad

                    Eric W Schwartz Collection [CD32][SX32]

                    All Art © Eric W Schwartz. This is not an authorised release.
                    ISO Master: Earok
                    Cover: Earok (Template by Steve)

                    This one has been a long time coming!
                    • Well over 80 of Eric W Schwartz's finest works, from the late 1980s through to the early 2010s! Including many short cartoons, looping animations, tutorials and even an image browser.
                    • Although all animations can be watched individually, playlists of select animations are also available:
                      • Aerotoons
                      • Amy the Squirrel
                      • Flip the Frog
                      • The Juggette
                      • Sabrina and Red Shetland
                      • Other notable Cartoons (Anti-Lemmings, Morphy the Magic Man etc)
                    • For the first time in CDXL format, the animations "Amy: A Walk in the Park", "Amiga Tribute" and "Only Amiga"
                    Where possible, animations are in their original "MovieSetter" format. Many have been converted to Anim5 in order to run within the CD32's tight RAM limitations. This disc would not have been possible without RandelShofer's incredibly exhaustive page on Eric Schwartz's animations, where many of the converted animations were sourced from.

                    A few notes:

                    • The animations are sometimes unapologetically un-PC. As such, they're not for everyone!
                    • Most animations (the CDXL ones excluded) will loop continually until you hit the "blue" button.
                    • The audio is glitchy on some animations, apologies, I'm unable to fix that.
                    • NTSC is recommended (in PAL some animations have glitches near the bottom of the screen)
                    • The "Girls of ES Productions" application will quit from the menu. You'll need to restart the console to get back in to it.

                    SWOS 16-17 [CD32][SX32]

                    CD32Load by JOTD
                    CD32.co.uk version by Earok and Steve

                    The community over at SensibleSoccer.de have made an amazing effort bringing the best Soccer game ever up to date. Here's our totally not-official release of it ;)

                    Note that the SWOS 16-17 team DO have an official CD32 ISO, so to clarify the points of difference with this one.
                    • Comprehensive CD32 pad support
                      • Red - Action
                      • Blue - Show statistics when ball is out of play

                      • Yellow - Toggle player names
                      • Play - Pause
                      • Reverse - Replay

                      • Forward+Reverse - Abandon match
                    • CDXL intro adapted from the PC release

                    Heart of the Alien [CD32][SX32]

                    Another World / Out of this World: Eric Chahi
                    Heart of the Alien: Interplay (Adapted for Amiga by D.J.M)
                    Lost Level: Eric Chahi (Hacked on to the Amiga by Earok)
                    Cover: Steve
                    ISO Master: Earok
                    Much appreciated assistance: Cobe

                    A long time coming! The legendary Another World mythos has finally made it's way to the CD32 in its entirety.

                    Another World (aka: Out of this World)
                    The original classic, with one minor tweak - Press BLUE to open the level code screen. If you want to skip through the lengthy introduction, just use the code "EDJI" after the (cracked) copy protection sequence.

                    The Lost Level
                    An entire level that was added to later editions of the game has been back-ported to Amiga and included on this disc as a standalone entry.

                    Heart of the Alien
                    The largely unknown and forgotten sequel makes it's way to the Amiga due to the incredible and much appreciated efforts of D.J.M.

                    Controls have been faithfully adapted from the Sega CD original.
                    • Action: Red
                    • Whip: Blue
                    • Jump forward: Green
                    • Activate Bomb: Red+Blue+Green
                    • Enter Code: Pause

                    Special thanks to Cobe for tweaking some of the Heart of the Alien audio tracks, as well as squeezing "The Lost Level" on to the selection menu.

                    Press Play on Pad: The Demoscene Disc [Cobe][CD32][SX32]

                    Various Authors
                    ISO and Cover: Cobe
                    Menu: Earok and Cobe

                    This one's a little bit different for a number of reasons!

                    Cobe has assembled a cracker compilation of 32 demoscene productions on a single disc - almost all AGA titles such as the remarkable Nexus-7 by Andromeda, but also a few classic OCS demoscene productions as well (notably, State of the Art by Spaceballs).

                    What's more, the disc will by default play demos in a random order, making it a perfect "virtual jukebox" for the CD32. If there's a specific demo you'd like to watch, all you need to do is (as the title suggests) hold down the "Play" button when the console is booted.

                    The complete demos list:

                                                                                • Shadow Fighter has been changed from the CD32 edition to the AGA one. While the CD32 version would not seem to load at all, the loading times are still very long. My recommendation is to burn the original CD32 edition if you really want to play it on a real console.
                                                                                • Only the Ultimate Body Blows soundtrack is included now, reducing download and burn times.

                                                                                This is my soft-retirement post. I'm moving into the world of commercial Amiga game development as part of the PixelGlass team, so I can no longer justify the time and effort required to churn out these unofficial discs. I may be back at some stage, but certainly not this year.

                                                                                So I'm going out with a bang - this is the largest themed collection this site has ever produced, 40 fighting games across numerous different styles, most of the notable fighters are there as well as some rather obscure AMOS efforts.

                                                                                This is also the first time I've written a menu system entirely from scratch, as it was my intention to write bespoke menus for each new release. All forty fighters can be selected on a menu screen that resembles your typical Street Fighter 2 clone menu (you can even choose randomly - press blue to move the cursor to a different game).

                                                                                The complete list:

I've taken this opportunity to upgrade the collection to using the latest and most stable version of CD32Load. All games should work now. This is otherwise the same as the previous release.

                                                                                1.1 Mega Update!

                                                                                • Goal! (Slave: Stingray)
                                                                                Even though it's not by Anco, we felt Goal was an appropriate addition due to being a Dino Dini game.

                                                                                Unfortunately, with the exception of the Kick Off 1 and Extra Time, the load times for most of the games are very long. Also, in some of the games you need the keyboard to be able to sub - if one of your players gets injured and you don't have a keyboard, that's it, you're stuck.

                                                                                Kick Off 3 is the original OCS version, unfortunately the AGA version requires a keyboard to start so I went with the original.

                                                                                Select screen

                                                                                ISO Master: Earok

                                                                                An Amiga exclusive classic from DMA Design - a bloody, chaotic, tough-as-nails side scrolling shooter.

                                                                                I know there's going to be a few people collectively scratching their heads right now. Walker is well known as a game that requires two simultaneous input devices - either mouse/keyboard or mouse/joystick - but for the first time it's playable with the CD32 pad alone.

                                                                                For the CD32 release we've managed to make the cursor controllable by the D-Pad, and the Walker itself with the BWD/FWD buttons. The cursor moves quick when you're not firing, but slows down for more precision when you are (and of course you can still lock for more precision still). Full control explanation is in the help text that shows when you put the disc in.

                                                                                Of course a D-Pad is never going to match the precision or speed of a mouse, so because of that:
                                                                                - The original control scheme is available if you've got the peripherals
                                                                                - Skip level and invincibility trainers soften the difficulty as much as you need

                                                                                Project R3D (Trailer: Pixel Nation)

                                                                                Tanks Furry is one of the seldom few commercial games released for the classic 68k Amiga in the past few years. Shamelessly old school, the game combines the reflex oriented gameplay of any number of arcade classics with the aesthetics of Advance Wars. On top of that, two player co-operative and four player deathmatch are also supported.

                                                                                Fortunately for the CD32 community, Tanks Furry has now officially been re-released as freeware by the generous developers, so we've quickly put together a release of the game alongside a CDXL version of the trailer. Another feature exclusive to our release is that pause button is mapped to "blue" on player one's pad.

                                                                                Note that this is the regular edition of the game, not the exclusive IndieGO edition that was just distributed to backers of that project. And also that the physical release is also still for sale.

                                                                                DOWNLOAD (GAME+COVER)

                                                                                Time for another re-release!

                                                                                Wonderdog is a game that I didn't give a fair go during our original release. While it's certainly yet another "animal with attitude" platformer, it's surprisingly deep and playable once you really get into it. Worlds, enemies, bonuses, bosses, secret rooms and even secret levels are plentiful! The gliding mechanic and aimable weapon (the longer you hold fire, the higher it'll arch upwards) are also quite nifty. On top of everything else, the game features a password save system so an average gamer has a reasonable shot at being able to beat it.

                                                                                Cobe was fortunate enough to receive the blessing of original coder Dan Scott for his efforts (whose handwriting graces the updated cover) so we've decided to dust off the release and give it a little more love.

                                                                                First up - some of the levels have had their palettes altered to more closely resemble the vibrant feel of the Mega CD original. While we understand the artist may have designed the palette with Amiga monitors in mind, we feel that the more saturated palette suits the console oriented nature of our release.

                                                                                (Original on the left, new on the right)

                                                                                Secondly, it wouldn't be a proper CD32 platformer unless jump was on a button rather than the dpad. We've done this, just tap Blue to jump and hold Blue to glide.

                                                                                Thirdly, we're now using the magic of JOTD's CD32Load. No OS flashes, pause with play, quit with forward+reverse. Toggle music/sfx from the menu with blue.

                                                                                And of course all of the bonuses from the previous release are still there:
                                                                                • CDXL intro from the Mega CD version
                                                                                • Alternative HAM6 CDXL intro. Smaller screen but more colours. Hold down FORWARD+REVERSE on startup to see this.
                                                                                • All of the level passwords are on the title screen, in case you forget or get stuck!
                                                                                • Infinite lives trainer can also be activated from the title screen.
                                                                                • The original ISO is still present in the download if you prefer one button controls and the original palette.

                                                                                It just happens we were working on three separate projects that revolved around Helicopter shoot-em-ups, so we thought, why not release them all at once!


                                                                                Virgin Games. Slave by Codetapper. ISO by Earok, covers by Steve and Earok

                                                                                This beautifully rendered Choplifter / Fort Apocalypse clone is the only standalone release in the pack. This is one I've wanted to play on CD32 for quite some time, but it was impractical to do so without gamepad support. Thanks to the magic of JOTD's CD32Load, the game is now fully CD32 pad compliant.

                                                                                Three covers are included, one by myself with the really cool Blue Thunder image by JCH. The other ones are by Steve and are much more faithful to the original box art, thanks to a collector for sending in high resolution scans.

                                                                                (PS - AmigaJay, we stole your A500 Classics logo. Hope that's ok!)

                                                                                Zeewolf Collection

                                                                                A duo of fantastic Amiga-Exclusive 3D games. This one was a popular request for some time, but a release has only recently become practical thanks again to CD32Load!  We've taken full advantage of John Girvin's slaves, offering the ability to skip right to eight different missions in the first game, and all thirty two in the second. And maybe a trainer option. Shhh.

                                                                                In addition to full CD32 Pad support, you can activate a Virtual Keyboard to access all other missions and cheats that are only available from the password screen (such as 'FRAMPAGE' to access the Kestrel Jet).

                                                                                Strike Collection

                                                                                • Desert Strike (EA): Using CD32Load and Abaddon's brand new slave, the game is fully gamepad compliant, loads without OS flashes, allows trainers and level select on startup, defaults to NTSC (for full screen and silky smooth updates) and has guns/hydras/hellfires mapped to separate buttons exactly like the Mega Drive edition (no more fumbling with the select key in the middle of a heated battle!). Huge thanks to Abaddon for putting up with my constant feature requests and implementing all of them!
                                                                                • Jungle Strike (Ocean / EA): This is the plain-old CD32 version, but with the option of two intros - the PC CDROM DOS version and alternative "comedy" intro.
                                                                                • Urban Strike Game Gear (Black Pearl / EA): Don't flip, this isn't anything amazing. It's just the emulated Game Gear version, which is too slow to be really playable on anything underneath a 68030. It's included just as a gimmick.
                                                                                • Seek and Destroy (Vision / Mindscape): A fun little top down shoot-em-up, it notably features extensive voice acting, smooth rotating graphics and a two player mode where the second player controls the Apache's weapon systems. This again is the stock CD32 game.

                                                                                Original Post

                                                                                Demoscene productions, PD games, unreleased classics, ST ports and Gloom mods galore!

                                                                                All the previous games 2014-2015

                                                                                Uses: WHDLoad and Slave by Wepl
                                                                                Cover and ISO Master: Kloks

                                                                                Approximately 20% of our visitors come from Germany - the third largest group after the UK and the US - so we're well overdue for a German language release.

                                                                                Our first German-language only release is courtesy of Kloks. Tony & Friends In Kellogg's Land is a charming platformer from Factor 5, the developers behind franchises like Turrican and Rogue Squadron - and so unsurprisingly this is one of the extremely rare "promotional" titles that turned out to be good.

                                                                                A (cracked) English version of the game actually does exist, however it's incompatible with the current WHDLoad slave. As such, a CD32 version of the English translation is on our most wanted list.

                                                                                As a reminder, some of our releases have German language options such as Flashback and Dune II. If you'd like to see any of our previous releases updated with German language support - or any language for that matter - please let us know.

                                                                                Monday, 4 January 2016

                                                                                Jaguar XJ220 Turbo Challenge by Core is a fantastic arcade racer and is quite possibly our most bonus-laden solo release to boot. Features:
                                                                                • Latest WHDLoad slave - copy protection screen so no keyboard is required (but useful if you want to tinker with tracks)
                                                                                • Two CDXL intros, both the Mega/Sega CD intro and the promo video for the real XJ220 have been included.
                                                                                • Since saving is unfortunately impossible, I've chucked in four saves at the world selection screen (after completing England) with fully fixed cars and $65000 in cash (one and two player, automatic and manual).
                                                                                • Sixteen audio tracks that can be listened to in a music player (press PLAY to quit out to the music player). Includes all twelve of the tracks from the Mega/Sega CD release plus four fan remixes:

                                                                                  • Irohazaka, replaces Italy 1
                                                                                  • Tiny Track (14 laps!) replaces Germany 1
                                                                                  • Rollercoaster, replaces France 1
                                                                                (There's actually six tracks, the sixth is one based on Buggy Boy's "Offroad" and occupies the Brazil 1 slot but it unfortunately doesn't seem to work on a real CD32. Also please bear in mind that the disc is a bit slow loading!)

                                                                                Intro 1: Sega/Mega CD

                                                                                There were three games on the CD32 that were released with manual copy protection, all from Team 17. It's a little awkward to read the tiny numbers on the code sheets and enter them with the gamepad (assuming you've even got a copy of the codes handy). So what we're providing here is simply a download of the three games with copy protection disabled.
                                                                                • Alien Breed 3D - Copy protection removed completely
                                                                                • The Speris Legacy - Copy protection removed completely
                                                                                • Worms - Enter anything at the copy protection screen
                                                                                Other than the minor hack, the three are more or less as they are on their original release - no bonuses or anything else added. The information to make these cracks all come from the Amiga Patch List

                                                                                Our last 2015 release! The legendary Bitmap Bros puzzle platformer is now on CD32, thanks to the efforts of Galahad! This is a full blown CD32 port, with custom controls and a proper CD32 loader (no OS Flashes on this one!)

                                                                                Red: Action

                                                                                There's also an alternative intro chucked in, we've converted Rikonami's HD intro to AGA HAM 8 CDXL. We've had to down mix it down to a lower frame rate to maintain as much quality as we can - while it's only 5 FPS it's almost full screen and (for a CDXL video) looks stunning.

                                                                                We've tentatively tagged this as being SX32 compatible - please let us know if you have any trouble playing it on an upgraded CD32.

                                                                                ISO Master and CDXL conversion: Cobe
                                                                                Button 2 hack: Earok

                                                                                We're very saddened to hear of the passing of Lemmy, the lead singer for legendary heavy metal band Motörhead. For quite some time, Cobe has had a conversion of the Amiga game based on his persona waiting in the wings, and so we thought we'd release it now as a tribute.

                                                                                The original game notably lacked any actual Motörhead songs in the sound track, due to licencing issues. Thanks to Cobe, our release features the music video to "Ace of Spades" as the intro video. Controls are identical to the original, except blue button activates the superpower move rather than space.

                                                                                Friday, 25 December 2015

                                                                                Merry Christmas 2015

                                                                                EDIT: The community collection has been updated further since we made this Christmas Post.

                                                                                Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

                                                                                The Amiga Community have delivered some big presents this year. First and foremost, WHDLoad is now freeware, and we're all hugely grateful to Wepl for it. What this potentially means for us is that - since we're no longer limited to the CD32 edition of WHDLoad - we can support Fast RAM equipped CD32s with our future releases or re-releases.

                                                                                Secondly, one of the very few commercial CD32 games to be released lately, Viddi's Tales of Gorluth, is also now freeware! If you haven't already I strongly urge you to look into preordering the sequel. I doubt we'll ever see a CD32 release of the original game due to the memory requirements, but I'll certainly look into it.

                                                                                Thirdly, Kev McG has posted a bunch of Sci-Fi themed worms levels in the Commodore Amiga Facebook group. Will they ever be included as part of our releases? Quite possibly ;)

                                                                                But finally, there's a three pack of Christmas releases from us.

                                                                                1: From Psygore, another "secret" CD32 release of an AGA Platformer. Cover and controls screen by Steve, CDXL conversion by Earok. There's already a jewel-case formatted cover for this on the CD32 covers blog.

                                                                                2: From Galahad, the beta CD32 release of the high quality PD platformer Solid Gold. Since this is a beta, please do not distribute separately as it'll eventually be replaced by a full blown release.

                                                                                3: From the wider CD32 community: 101 games and demos in the 2015 CD32 Amiga Community Compilation. Except for Nittamituaki Elves' Dreamland (a last minute addition), all of them are represented in screenshots below. As you can see there's a huge variety of unreleased commercial games, full PD games, demos of upcoming releases, demoscene productions, Atari ST ports, Gloom mods and more.

                                                                                (All of these have been tested under an emulated environment, not all of them have been tested on a real CD32. Let me know if there are any problems).
