    Not sure what A500 bundle I bought, but do remember it included Captain Planet.

    Also, can't remember what A1200 I had, I think it may have not been a bundle though.

    Alas, my 1200 always had overheating issues on the motherboard - it finally burned out (literally) after about 3 years. My 500 died of old age.

    I do still have one of the A3000 machines used to produce the first series of Knightmare (the telly from way back) complete with the huge Texas Instruments DSP board.

    Batman pack here - worth it just for New Zealand Story :D

    I can still remember the cheat for that game as it was rather rude :blush:

    After that I had a A1200 with a hooooge (at the time) 220mb hard drive, which was later upgraded to a 1gig drive :eeek:
    I still have my A1200 and it all still works, including its powerhouse of a 50mhz 030 accelerator with a 32mb SIMM ;)

    Mmm im tempted to fire it up now just to play Syndicate hehe

    Syndicate was bloody brilliant...

    I loved that game... I managed 27 hours straight on id once, before my Dad came and shouted at me (I was 13 at the time).

    Dear lord, this thread brings back some memories...

    Superfrog wasn't bad

    Turrican (1 and 2) were bloody good though (3 was crap)
    Supercars 2 was great fun
    Dynablaster ruled in 4 player mode (though I wasn't aware of the original PC engine 5 player version - bomberman - until later on)
    Speedball 2 was very addictive
    Gods - really good - though you had to be good at it to really appreciate it (speed and points bonus, etc)
    Shadow of the beast was like the best looking game ever
    Stardust was pretty polished

    It's amazing how many I *can't* remember right now

    Bought the A500+ (extra 0.5MB of memory!!!) which came with rainbow island, F29 retaliator and some other games that I can't remember. Games I remember fondly are both the shadow of the beast and monkey island series...

    EDIT: Nearly forgot Speedball 2! Class...

    Oh man, Speedball 2!!!!!!! A friend of mine was the store manager for a small Amiga shop and sold me my 500. We used to sit around at night and play the hell out of games sold in the shop on the 2000's and the brand spanking new speed demon his store had just got in, the 3000. Woo Hoo.

    I must admit though that my favorite on the 500 was Powermonger.

    I didn't have an amiga but my friend did- the games I used to love were:

    Goblins 2 (ahh, the comedy)
    Jim Power (some random shoot-em-up)
    Bart Vs The Space Mutants (the skateboard bit was sooo hard!)

    OOOhh yeah!

    I got the Batman pack too :)

    Mother Trucking Kiwi Barstools (Well nearly!) :nono:

    Gods - nice theme tune "In to, the wonderful, da, da, da" - never did finish that game.......... the snake monster always killed me off.

    Speedball "Icecream, Icecream"

    Speedball 2 - killed 2 joysticks on that game :)

    Zennon II - Classic - better than R-Type.

    ;)
