Atari ST version of Sinbad and the Throne of the Falcon gets an Amiga port by Meynaf

C64 box art

Throughout 2018 Indie Retro News and our good friends Amiga Bill, Saberman and even Per Ola, has been at the forefront for Amiga news announcing games such Coco Banana, Powerglove Reloaded, Tiger Claw and even The Zing to name but a few. But this time we've got another special announcement, as thanks to both DamienD and Saberman, they have told us Meynaf has released the Amiga port of the Atari ST version of Sinbad and the Throne of the Falcon.


Now when I first heard of this release I was a bit skeptical, as I knew for a fact Sinbad and the Throne of the Falcon was not only released on the Atari ST by Cinemaware in 1987 and the C64 in 1988 but the game did infact appear on the Amiga. Which yes even now sits on my shelf looking all cheerful for itself. So why the need for the port? Well according to DamienD prior to this release, the Amiga version is totally different to the other versions which are more fun to play, and the graphics are nothing like what's shown on the original Amiga box art and don't represent the "Amiga Version", hence the need for the port. (See discussion link below for proof!)


So if you want to try the game you can do so below, just be aware it does requires V39+, it may run on 68000 but you will need an *accelerated* 68000.
