"Only Amiga makes it possible; only Amiga makes it happen."

The Amiga is a family of personal computers, Commodore company's 16-bit generation home computer. The first model appeared in 1985 as a high-end product with graphical, audio and multitasking capacities ahead of its time. The most popular model, Amiga 500, was introduced in 1987 and became the leading home computer of the late 1980s and first years of 1990s in the most of West Europe. In the USA success was more modest. Amiga computers were used especially for gaming, demoscene activities and graphic and video editing. Second generation Amiga systems (A1200 and A4000 with the new AGA chipset) were released in 1992 and while technically superior in many ways, were not advertised and marketed well by Commodore and so, lost the popularity war and market share against other platforms such as IBM PC compatible computers and Apple Macs.

BC-Kid Platformer 1993 This is a unique port of Bonk's Adventure, most of the game has been updated with the style of Bonk's Revenge and Bonk 3 and there are alot of background changes!
