Guest Release #4: Tiny Troops

Perhaps ironically, there are precious few Real Time Strategy games on Amiga even though it spawned the genre with Dune II.

Tiny Troops - released well after the Amiga was past it's prime - is one of those few and is Cobe's third guest release. Playing as one of two miniature Alien races, you attempt to annihilate the other one across multiple "planets" (which appear to be different areas in a home). A feature that this game contains that's certainly very rare in the genre is the ability to play two player split screen, too.

With this release, you can also preserve your saved games in NVRam. Detailed instructions are included but essentially all you need to do is quit from the main menu after saving as usual in the game.

DOWNLOAD (Virus checked 25th May 2015, it's also been updated to be much easier to play without a mouse)
