Unofficial CD32 Release - Vivid Image : The Complete Amiga Works


Formed in 1988, it wouldn't be until 1990 when they released their first Amiga game 'Hammerfist'. Though it would be 1991's fantastic 'First Samurai' that put the developer on the map. A couple of years later the underrated sequel was released, a CD32 port was planned for release in 1994 that sadly failed to materialise.

Finally an Amiga game many don't even know was released on the Amiga is 'Street Racer' mainly because it didn't hit until 1997 and only Amiga CD, though CD32 users were unable to play the game as the disc wasn't bootable and it needed slightly more than the stock 2mb ram to load, thankfully JOTD has done a great job of jiggling the loading and getting a booting version for the CD32.

So for the first time all 5 of their Amiga releases are together on one disc and all playable on a stock CD32!

    Voxel Double Pack - Unofficial CD32 Release - FastRAM Required!


    Forgot to upload a couple of discs i made a month ago, so here's one today, this pack is for FastRAM equipped CD32's, the disc boots as you would expect and you get a choice of 2 voxel based games on this CD;

    • Wheels On Fire - Originally released in 1997 by Prolixity / Epic Marketing, needs 4MB of FastRAM, is a voxel based racing game.
    • Firewall (Demo) - Originally released in 1997 by Ralf Eisele, needs 3MB of FastRAM, is a helicopter voxel game demo in the style of the Comanche game for PC.

    Whilst these games would benefit further from a faster CPU and/or Akiko support they are at least playable on the CD32 now.

    Downloads are in the normal location on the EAB FTP uploads/cd32/fastram folder.

    Bubble Heroes - Unofficial CD32 Release - FastRAM Required!


    Another great Amiga CD game that CD32 owners missed out on, although this was released a couple of years after the last commercial CD32 game in 2000.

    Basically a Puzzle Bobble clone, but probably the best clone, certainly on the Amiga.  I had some difficulties getting this to run, as its designed to be installed on an HDD and run off disc, finally i had it running, but after a couple of weeks of trying the game still has graphical glitches on the intro animations and some of the loading screens, though once these have loaded the game itself is fine so it still deserves a release, though today i thought i'd fixed it as it runs fine on WinUAE but the glitches are still present on real hardware.


    Fully bootable on a CD32 console with 4MB+ of FastRAM, and playable with just a Joypad.

    CD32 Controls:
    Red = Shoot Bubbles

    Known Issues -
    Glitches on menu/intro screens. (ok on WinUAE)
    CD audio not playing (so not included in download)

    OnEscapee - Unofficial CD32 Release - FastRAM Required!


    The next Amiga CD to CD32 treatment is OnEscapee, one of the few Amiga CD games i really wanted when it came out 20 years ago, its a very professional looking game in the Another World/Flashback style of gameplay, comes with a fantastic intro as well.


    Fully bootable on a CD32 console with 2MB+ of FastRAM, fully playable with a Joypad, infact the game takes advantage of the extra buttons on the CD32 pad.

    CD32 Controls:
    Red/Rwd = As Fire 1
    Blue/Green/Fwd = As Fire 2
    Play = Exit to Main Menu
    Green+Yellow = Options



    Download is in the normal location on the EAB FTP uploads/cd32 folder.
