MEGA is fulfilling its mission of preserving mankind’s digital heritage at its best: The very last Amiga 1200 has been added to the MEGA collection! No other than Petro T. Tyschtschenko – former Commodore and Amiga International manager – handed over the “Magic Pack” to Dr. André Kudra – specialized in vintage Commodore and Amiga machines, and proud member of MEGA e. V. The historic and highly emotional handover event took place on April 2nd, 2016 at the Mannheim Retro-Fair, the 3rd edition of this extremely popular meeting point for retro enthusiasts. All was captured in video by retro scene blogger “VisioRetron” and kindly published on his YouTube channel. So all what’s left to say is: AAAMIGAAAAAAAAA!
After receiving a generous donation from a Swiss fellow named “Louis” which -among other machines- included a boxed early Macintosh Plus we decided to play a bit with this Mac. Spotting an original game in the shelves we did not test yet it turned out to be a lot of fun: Dark Castle by Silcon Beach Software 1986. A truly great action adventure for a wonderful classic machine. Thank you Louis!
