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!
