Amiga Classix 3 Available (in Germany)
8:32 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The e.p.i.c. Interactive site was updated earlier in the month with information on a new Amiga emulator for the Mac and PC that contains over 100 classic game titles called Amiga Classix 3. Since the Amiga proved much more popular in Europe than in North America, there is currently no place to order the package on this side of the Atlantic. Thomas Steiding of e.p.i.c. also explained the Mac version is missing some features the PC includes. Here's more of his explanation:

I do not know if there is much demand for it in the US, as the
Amiga was mainly a european phenomena and in the us was mainly used by TV/Video specialists and less by the common home user.

The product is mainly for PC, but does work on Mac (and Amiga of course). Reason for this is that the PC emulator is much more advanced than the Mac emulator (no aga support). I think its great value for many pple who used to have an Amiga in the good ole days. The CD comes with more than 100 formerly commercial games sch as XTreme Racing, Beneath The Steel Sky, Lure Of The Tempress, Tower of Souls, Behind The Iron Gate, Wheelsüin, Tactical manager, F1 Manager, Xiriaz and many many more games.

Lovers of the maligned Amiga may want to send e.p.i.c. some polite email and an offer to pay shipping costs if you're interested in obtaining a copy of the title. For more info on the games included Amiga Classix 3, check out its page. We should have more info on e.p.i.c.'s other titles in progress later this week, so stay tuned to IMG for the latest.
