Amiga A500


One of the games I used to play on a borrowed A500 was Speedball.
Had great fun playing Datahopa with this game.

The A500 had a dodgy monitor (everything was green) partly the reason I had it. Played this game loads with the dodgy monitor.
Got the monitor fixed and Datahopa could no longer work out what players were his and I could beat him easily. No fun for either of us.

Oh yes we did have fun with this game, until we got the monitor fixed, that’s what can happen when you are colour-blind like me.

Was a good game though  Cool  nice find Snowy

Speedball on the Amiga was a great game, used to play it all the time when I had my Amiga  thumbsup

I knew what the 4256 chips were (they're the same RAM chips that the Atari 800XL used, and that was the first "out of the box" computer I ever modded), but that was about it. It was nice to learn that the other numbers on the chips/boards were date codes, and how to decipher them. Smiley
