Report and video of Amiga prototype "Zorro" (Update)
Under the title link Eric Hill has reported on his recently purchased Amiga development system. According to his information, this prototype was named "Zorro" and is a later variation than "Velvet". Commodore did send it to Hewlett-Packard hoping that the company would support it but it would not. In spring 1985 a private person bought it from HP.

The main differences in comparison to the ordinary Amiga (1000) as Eric Hill found out:
  • Commodore logo instead of Amiga checkmark on the case
  • Commodore keys inbstead of Amiga keys
  • No signatures on the inside top cover of the case
  • Custom chips Portia (instead of Paula) and Daphne (instead of Denise) as well as an early Agnus version
The computer used a Kickstart disk version 29.11. A video complements the report.

Update: (07:29, 05.05.19, snx)
As it turned out meanwhile, the disk has been overwritten by the previous owner with Kickstart 1.2. (snx) (Translation: dr)

Source code of "Trap Runner" released
After the collector's edition of his jump'n run Trap Runner has been available, similar to other games Frank Wille has released the source code, level files and graphics of the game under a Public Domain licence. The archive includes all files necessary for creating a disk image of "Trap Runner".

The build process is portable that means you can assemble the game on different platforms. Additional to an ISO-C99 compiler and the AmigaOS assembler includes, only GNU-make, vasmm68k_mot and vlink are required. All other tools you can build from the source code. In Makefile you only have to adapt the variable ASINC to the corresponding environment. It includes the path to the Amiga includes.

Commercial Shoot'em Up: "Skillgrid" as download or Boxed Edition (AGA)
Skillgrid (video) developed by Simone 'saimo' Bevilacqua (e.g. BOH, Huenison) is an abstract, vertical shoot'em up which runs endlessly and according to the developer with "frenetic, tactical gameplay", diverse sub-games and many boss battles the player is supposed to be encouraged to chase after new highscores. The game requires an AGA computer.

Skillgrid is available from itch.io as chargeable download for 7,99 USD (about 7 Euro) or from RGCD as Boxed Edition providing two variants: As "basic CD-only version that comes with an auto-booting jewel-cased, glass-mastered CD complete with a professionally printed 16-page manual, a large weather-proof vinyl RGCD sticker, RGCD and Retream postcards and two disk labels (so you can make your own floppies from the images on the CD)" (for about 19 Euro) or as "deluxe version comes with all this plus a packet of four beautiful 25mm button badges, an A3 poster (rolled) and the game on two floppy disks - all presented in a plastic clam shell box complete with custom made foam insert" (for additional 6,90 Euro).
