This Month On Edge

The things that caught our eye during the production of E285
Amiga games deliver a potent hit of nostalgia, but revisiting
them used to require either the bulky original hardware or fiddly emulation. The Armiga Project aims to provide a compact, hassle-free conduit for that dusty collection of 3.5-inch disks in your attic. The slim machine comes in two variants, one with a
built-in floppy drive, but both can run ADF images of Amiga games (the larger one automatically creating and storing them on an SD card). It’s still a prototype, and there are a few issues
as a result – there’s no 360 pad support yet, while playing a game that requires mouse control proves frustrating at best – but if you’re prepared to put up with teething issues, there’s
plenty to recommend it, not least Lotus Turbo Challenge II.
