Retro Rated: Amiga 500 – Astra Pack

Released in 1987, the Amiga would be repackaged several times over its lifespan. Many owners will remember the Cartoon Classics bundle featuring The Simpsons, Captain Planet and Lemmings, whilst others may have picked up the Batman pack, featuring the titular hero.

Coming home from school and seeing that our parents had actually bought us this box of wonder is a memory I will cherish forever. Our machine┬ácame bundled with the Astra pack, a rather less illustrious collection of budget re-releases. But it didn’t matter. After the Spectrum, pretty much anything was likely to be an upgrade.

And so I thought it would be fun to step back in time and play through those original games. Let’s see what awaits us.
