Rebuild complete!

It's been a long time coming, but each and every one of our releases has been virus scanned, fixed and for the most part, updated. Nearly all of them have been enhanced in one way or another, including:
  • Save game packs
  • Ability to save games or scores
  • Gamepad support (on some titles where a mouse was previously a requirement)
  • Menu music
  • Additional 3rd party levels
  • Additional languages
  • Additional bonus games
  • Optional OCS versions
The complete list of fixes can be found here.

Now we can get back to focusing fully on our regular releases! Some special things are planned over the next month or two. Stay tuned!

Cobe Pack: Final Odyssey / The Strangers + Bonus [Keyboard required]

Games originally published by Vulcan software. All ISO masters and CDXL conversions by Cobe.

Two flashy looking Vulcan games from late in the Amiga's life "Final Odyssey" and "The Strangers", together on one disc. Unfortunately they're both sadly keyboard required - easiest thing to do is to order a Lyra 3 adapter and find an old PS/2 keyboard, or to just play on WinUAE.

Covers are included in the download, and it's also bundled with two existing CD32 titles - Litil Divil and Flink, but with intros from the Philips CD-I and Sega / Mega CD versions of the games respectively (these do not include the CDDA files for either game, you may want to source the originals and burn the Cue files but with these versions substituted in).

Mutant League Hockey

Ocean / EA (Cracked and mastered by Galahad/Scoopex)
Cover: Steve
ISO Master: Earok

21 years late. Better than never!

Mutant League Hockey was a popular Sega Mega Drive / Genesis game back in 1994. Along with it's cousin Mutant League Football, it inspired a cartoon series that ran for two seasons. As the name implies it's much sillier than most Hockey games, and the gameplay revolves as much around violently attacking the opposing team as it does scoring goals.

An AGA Amiga port was almost completed (with unconfirmed speculation about a CD32 release), however despite extensive coverage by the gaming press at the time it was never released.

Thankfully, the files from the project were supplied to Galahad who in turn finished the game and released it to all of us. Some more of the history (as well as alternative ADF downloads if you intend to play from an Amiga 1200) can be found on Indie Retro News' launch post about the release.

Guest release: Kloks' Megapack: Volume 1

EAB user Kloks has generously donated a series of seven standalone, bonus free CD32 conversions.
  • Aunt Arctic Adventure (Midware, WHDLoad slave by Bored Seal)
  • Duck Tales (Disney)
  • Jumping Jack Son (Infogrames, WHDLoad slave by Harry)
  • Nebulus (Hewson, WHDLoad slave by Wepl)
  • Ninja Warriors (Sales Curve, WHDLoad slave by Mr.Larmer and CFOU!)
  • Prince of Persia (Jordan Mechner and Br0derbund, slave by JOTD)
  • Toki (Ocean, WHDLoad slave by Mr.Larmer, JOTD and Stingray)
Rather than release them one at a time, we've decided to spring all of them at once.

High resolution covers are in the pack, all of them are by Kloks based on Steve's DVD case design (although we've chucked in Steve's own Prince of Persia cover as an optional alternative too).

The ISOs themselves were all created by Kloks, with the sole exception of Duck Tales.
