If you were around back in the '80s and '90s and were old enough to play any of the games of the time, you will probably remember the Amiga computer system that was around.

I remember those things being very expensive at the time and I can recall wanting one very badly.

I never got one and played Nintendo or Sega mostly during that time.

The thing I remember most about the Amiga is all the awesome games with the great graphics for the time.

If you want to relive some of those gaming memories, you don t even need an Amiga to do it today.

A huge number of the games that were so popular on the Amiga system are now available via the Amiga software library.

The Internet Archive is the home of our digital past, and now it s offering the greatest gift to any kid who grew up in the 80s and 90s: thousands of playable Amiga games.

If you re unfamiliar with Amiga, the computer system was the technological successor of the Commodore 64, one of the most popular computers ever made.

The Amiga 1000 ran on its own operating system Amiga OS , could display up to 4,096 colors, and was Commodore s heavyweight contender against Apple s Macintosh.

It s still a much-loved machine to this day.

As The Next Web notes, the Amiga system didn t even have 10,000 games, so the archive could probably use a little housekeeping to get rid of some duplicates.

But there is some Double Dragon and Batman: The Movie along with some other titles I ve never heard of but sound A .

While I m old enough to have owned a ZX Spectrum as a child, it was the Commodore Amiga that really ignited my lifelong passion for gaming.

Now, fellow fans of the computer, which was popular in the 80 s and early 90 s, can drown in nostalgia on the Internet Archive, which has just uploaded over 10,000 Amiga games, applications, and demos.

The San Francisco-based non-profit organization already contains almost 2400 of MS-DOS games, along with more than 1000 titles from the Windows 3.1 era.

The Amiga collection is made up of over 2000 games, including classics such as King s Quest II, Double Dragon, Elite, R-Type, Batman, Back to the Future part II, Xenon, and Bubble Bobble.

There s also a huge amount of demos, shareware, and applications, such as Electronic Arts Deluxe Paint I through IV.

The collection runs in a browser version of the Scripted Amiga Emulator, though many games can be downloaded and run locally.

Version 8 of Amiga Forever arrives to save the gadget drawer from yet more junk

Looking glumly at that hunk of retrocomputing-esque plastic you got for Christmas?

Fear not, for classic Commodore botherers, Cloanto, have just the thing.

Amiga Forever and ever and ever

First released in 1997, Amiga Forever is effectively a front end for a variety of emulators of the venerable kit and saves the user from the hassle of configuring the likes of WinUAE and WinFellow and tracking down the necessary ROMs to make the thing work.

€9.95 gets you the Value version, with emulators and the Kickstart 1.3 ROM files.

The world's getting a new Amiga for Christmas.

Yes, that Amiga – the seminal Commodore microcomputers that brought mouse-driven GUIs plus slick and speedy graphics to the masses from 1985 to 1996.

The Amiga was beloved by gamers, graphics pros and many an IT aficionado who just appreciated their speedy (for their time) Motorola 680x0 CPUs, multi-threading operating system and ability to work with images, sound and video.

The platform died when Commodore went bankrupt, but enthusiasm for the Amiga persisted and various clones and efforts to preserve AmigaOS continue to this day.

One such effort, from Apollo Accelerators, emerged last week: the company's forthcoming “Vampire V4” can work as a standalone Amiga or an accelerator for older Amigas.

Apollo's produced similar devices before, but says the V4 should outpace its older models thanks to its use of an Altera Cyclone V A5 FPGA to fill the role once played by Motorola silicon.

For three years, then came Generation 64, Jimmy Wilhelmssons book on the popular home computer the Commodore 64.

Jimmy, also known as “Spelpappan”, was shortly thereafter asked if he was not going to write a similar book about the Commodore Amiga, and is now the sequel here.

the Commodore computer offered opportunities in the graphics and the sound side that no other home computer in the past had offered, which made it possible to without the need for costly accessories to create graphics and ljudupplevelser that could measure up to the music videos that were so popular in the tv box in the mid-80s.

It was also on the Amiga platform as the Swedish dataspelsutvecklingen took off in earnest.

Among other Digital Illusions (now Dice and a part of Electronic Arts) released its first game titles for the Amiga, and many of spelskaparna had its background in the so-called demoscenen.

Even those who already think they know everything about the Amiga will take part of the knowledge that fills in the gaps.

The rivalry between Sega and Nintendo - and their legions of zealous fans - dominated the early gaming wars.

There was a third way though, one which offered arguably better graphics and sound than either camp's consoles without demanding fealty to those embittered factions: the Amiga family of computers.

Alternative options rarely dominate the cultural zeitgeist though, and so many players missed out on the Amiga catalogue.

Now's your chance to catch up though, as the latest catalogue of retro games uploaded to the Internet Archive comprises more than 10,000 titles released on various Amiga platforms.

The collection, which surfaced at the start of August and has since ballooned, comprises classics such as scrolling shooter R-Type, puzzler Lemmings 2: The Tribes, and the earliest King's Quest adventures.

Sadly, some of the Amiga family's best-known titles, including Cannon Fodder, Syndicate, and Superfrog, aren't included in the collection, along with many other franchise titles still under copyright or trademark.

Enjoy a healthy dose of nostalgia?

The Internet Archive has uploaded a massive catalog of emulated Commodore Amiga games and applications this week, making many of the platform s most memorable releases playable for free in modern web browsers.

Most popular in European nations throughout the late 80s and early 90s, the Amiga hosted thousands of commercially released software titles over its 11-year lifespan, and many more games were produced by hobbyists.

Fans can now experience the platform s glory days free of charge via the Internet Archive s collection.

Among the Internet Archive s featured additions for this week are several Amiga ports of popular arcade games, including Irem s horizontally scrolling shoot- em-up R-Type, Taito s bubble-bursting action game Bubble Bobble, and Technos Japan s seminal beat- em-up Double Dragon.

Amiga-original highlights include Ocean s shooter Wizball and an action game based on Tim Burton s 1989 superhero film Batman.

The Internet Archive's Amiga Software Library features over 10,000 titles fully playable in-browser, including the classic Juggler demo.

The Internet Archive has once again expanded its in-browser emulation offerings, making available 10,000 software applications for the classic Amiga computer family.

Founded with no lesser aim than being a total repository for information both analogue and digital, the Internet Archive is a fascinating project.

Despite some setbacks and commercial competition, the Internet Archive - best known for the Wayback Machine, which allows you to browser a decades-deep cache of popular websites by date - has been going from strength to strength.

Following the release of the Historical Software Archive in 2013, the Internet Archive has been expanding its offering of software which can be executed directly within a visitor's web browser: in 2014 arcade games were added, and in February this year visitors could experience sanitised malware.

Now, the project's software library has extended to cover a new format: the Amiga.

The Internet Archive is full of surprises.

The group recently added a huge trove of Amiga games and programs to its collection, bringing the total to more than 10,000.

Even better: It s all available to you for playback and use in your browser.

The non-profit library of digital culture first added Amiga software to its catalog in 2013.

The size and scope of the new collection compared to what was added in 2013 isn't quite clear, but there s a lot of new stuff that was only recently added—4and an overwhelming amount of games.

the Bestselling Commodore 64 was at the height of its popularity, but the american company had its sights higher setting than that.

Hence, they bought up the small computer manufacturer Amiga, which had produced a game console with advanced sound and grafikmöjligheter, and stöpte about the product to a computer that would take over after the Commodore 64.

The new datorfamiljen was designed to be as powerful as possible on the graphics and sound side and at the same time be able to compete with the most advanced computers from Apple and IBM.

the Commodore 64 had been made that the Swedish young people got up the eyes for games and programming, but it was the sequel to the Commodore Amiga which brought the real revolution in the grafiksidan.

When the model is Amiga 500 was released in Sweden in the spring of 1987, it was the first time such powerful graphics and audio performance became available for ordinary home users.

the Commodore failed miserably to get enterprise users interested in the Amiga.

This 16-bit, floppy disk-based computer was a fixture in many a teenage gamer s fuggy bedroom, due to its winning balance of performance, accessibility and affordability – not to mention a steady supply of brilliant titles.

And thanks to the Internet Archive, you can now play many of those titles in your web browser, because the site just added over 10,000 Amiga titles to its emulation library.

Now, gaming historians among you might realise that that s about twice the number of games that were ever released on the Amiga, so it s safe to say that a lot of these titles are duplicates, demo versions and other pieces of non-game software.

Ordinarily, we d simply point you to our existing article on the 10 best Amiga games ever and suggest you play those first, but seeing as none of them except Stunt Car Racer appear to be in the archive, that s not going to be much help you should read the article anyway though, because all those games are fantastic, and there are other ways to play them .

Yes, this is a port of a coin-op arcade game rather than an Amiga original, but as we said above, we re dealing with a limited pool of games that actually work properly here.

What s important about R-Type is that it s simple to play with keyboard controls use the arrow keys to move and the shift button to fire , it runs perfectly in your browser, and it s still a pretty great game despite being over a quarter of a century old.
