Amiga Mania - Retromania is going to launch a big Amiga event 19th May!


Throughout the years we've always tried to feature as many events as possible that are dedicated to a multitude of systems from the Amstrad, C64 and ZX spectrum, to the Amiga or even the Atari ST. Now most of these events feature different systems with talent from around the world showing just what these systems can really do with some rather impressive demo's.

A Mario Bros Classic Series Review by Thermoptic!


I have always loved the Mario Bros game, ever since i first played the arcade port of it on my Commodore 64. Its one of those timeless games that you never can get tired of. Its super simple to learn and control for new players and the gameplay is also simple but at the same time it can be very challenging! Mario Bros is definitely a game that is best suited for two players, and one thing i really liked about this game is that you can choose how you want to play it; either you can play cooperatively with a friend and try to clear as many levels as possible or you battle up and try to stop the other player and get the highest score.
