Amiga Games

SSI Games

for the Amiga

 

The following SSI games were available for the Commodore Amiga family of personal computers.  The series included the original A1000, the second generation A500 and A2000, and the ECS-enabled A3000.  I have no information on the compatibility of SSI games with the AGA Amiga (A1200 & A4000), but I do know that there were problems with A3000 compatibility most notably in the horrible, horrible conversion of Gateway to the Savage Frontier.

 

First Amiga Conversion

Computer Baseball

Converted circa 1986.  $39.95

512K RAM. (This game is hard to find, but I have seen screenshots of the Amiga version.  It ran in AmigaBASIC, which is probably one reason for its short lifespan.)
