In a surprising announcement on Friday, February 21st, Cloanto - famous for its long running range of Amiga emulators - and the Mega65 Project announced that the two parties have come to an agreement regarding licensing official Commodore 65 ROM code for the upcoming Mega 65 8-bit computer, that fully clones the Commodore 65 using FPGA-hardware with a slew of enhancements such as Ethernet and HDMI connectivity. In a following comment, a Mega 65 spokesperson stated that preorders for the highly anticipated little brother of the Amiga 1000 is only weeks away.

This move may suggest that the Cloanto, currently involved with a legal battle with other parties claming ownership of the Amiga trademarks, will be open to similar deals concerning Amiga intellectual property once the ongoing court proceedings are finalized.

Another announcement has just arrived from Saberman, as he has just told us a previous Amiga game that was released in March of last year called 'AMIner', has been updated to ver. 20_2_16, which features a number of improvements making it a worthy game to play. If you've not heard of this game before, AMiner is an Arcade title that is not only based on a Motherload flash game, but also looks like an inspiration to Mr. Driller Drill Spirits, which was originally released on the Nintendo DS.

As we said before, AMIner was first submitted during the RetroKomp Gamedev Compo as a work in progress, where it scored 2nd place. This version however is a far more complete game as it was not only developed by KaiN, Softiron and mccnex, but features all the graphics in lovely 32 colours, lots of new graphical detail, and finally a new soundtrack by Witold Stanieczko all working on an Amiga KS1.3, with 1MB Chip and a bit of FAST...  Please note the game is still a work in progress so do expect further improvements down the line!

It was only last week that we announced on Indie Retro News that a demo was made available of a Dungeon Crawler called 'Legacy'; a game that appeared on the PDA by Redshift in the mid 2000's featuring a huge world, dungeons, towns, NPC's and pretty much everything you could want in an old school Dungeon Crawler. Well after telling people it was never going to be released as a full version due to rights issues(?), it looks as if Inked Pixel Software has taken up the task, and will be releasing the full version of 'Legacy' this year on the Amiga!

Dungeon Master, Eye of the Beholder, Ishar and even ones just released on the Amiga such as the great Black Dawn Rebirth published through Double Sided Games. So it's thanks to a great heads up by Solo, we now know that this great game of Legacy will be released on the Amiga and requiring a minimum 1200 + 4MB Fast + HDD or an ECS Amiga + 020 CPU + 6 of RAM + Kick 3.1 + HDD and is sure to be a great game indeed!

Doubleside games have announced Super Metal Hero for AGA Amigas on their website.

Super Metal Hero is a side-scrolling shooting action platform combined with shoot-up levels.
Game design and graphics are from TenShu with the help of Michael Gibs on programming and music.

The game will be available in the fourth quarter of 2020 for the Commodore Amiga 1200 (with a 030 accelerator and 4 MB Fast Ram) in boxed floppy and digital formats.

The pictures look very promising and you can see a very short teaser here:
