    Could always use an amiga emulator and bring them all!

    But if these are native, even better.

    Would love to see the list of games being worked on. I emailed the makers of battle squadron after they released the android version of battle squadron one to see if a PB version might be in the works. No response. Some emulators are being worked on as well. I would pay dearly for some Amiga games or something like Directory Opus on my PB.

    I have a console based amiga emulator by the way. Just need to package it with a UI and get some decent touch controls.
    It ported with no code changed though. Can probably port a better one.

    They do have some good titles. But I really wish rim would focus on a BT controller instead and let Devs focus on Apps

    BT controllers are in a dev build so it's likely coming in future.

    I vote for an amiga emulator until the native ones come out!

    Emerald Mines for the win!! Loved that game. Even the x-wife loved it. Good single player and more fun cooperative two player.

    Still have my Amiga2000 in the basement and it works.

    Good to see a bunch of Amiga fans! I still have an A4000/030. Had a 1000, 2000, and a 500 as well for a time.
    Worms!

    Anyone have Jeppsson's email or twitter so we can get an update on this? I would pay mightily for BattleSquadron, Hybris, Rick Dangerous, and a mess of others! An emulator to be able to run Perfect General would get you perpetual gratitude!

    Elite was good (for the time), but have you tried GOF2 HD?? It's like an up to date ver of Elite imo, and a great game too...

    I had a C64 and a Vic20 also, before we went to the Darkside and got an Apple IIc.

    I had over 1000 amiga games.

    The ones that stand out to me:
    1) Cadaver (by Bitmap Brothers?)
    2) I forgot the name but it starts with a few riddles you have to answer. Then it's an RPG (sort of point and click). Reminds me of Diablo. You have to attack ghosts and stuff and put items on. There is a town where you can talk to people and trade stuff too.
    Edit: Faery Tale Adventure!
    3) Labyrinth
    4) Dungeon Master
    5) Forgot the name but you have two guys and it's a side-scrolling shoot 'em up. You attack these weird animals and other things to get points. It was unique because of the characters/animals involved.
    6) Lemmings
    7) This game with a monkey. You have to collect bananas.
    8) Sensible Soccer. Was really easy to control!
    9) Probably a dozen more
