Monkey Business - The very first commercial Amiga game is found and released

Well this came as a shock as if you thought you had played every Amiga game since the very early days of the Amiga, along comes ' Monkey Business ' to give you that much needed wake up call. This Mactintosh port according to Hall of Light, was reportedly the very first commercial game ever released for the Amiga published in late 1985 by little-known U.S. software company The Other Valley Software. For those of you like myself who have never played it, will be posted to know it's been found and uploaded to the EAB Zone for all to enjoy!

Although a much more indepth read can be found via the EAB discussion forums, Monkey Business is very much a Donkey Kong clone and instead of being an 80's Nintendo game with Mario having to save a damsel in distress from a giant barrel throwing ape called Donkey Kong. Is instead some sort of weird mash up as you pick up spray bottles, avoid strange dog like creatures and reach a person holding what looks to be a briefcase... Yes it is odd!
