Real-time strategy: Command & Conquer is ported to the Amiga
Artur Jarosik is known for various game ports like the platformer Hydra Castle Labyrinth or the action adventure Heart of Darkness, besides his SDL implementation of the browser NetSurf. Now, as a contribution to the AmiGameJam, he has started to port the first part of the real-time strategy series Command & Conquer to the Amiga and named it "Vanilla Conquer".

The video published the day before yesterday shows the beta version of his game. As Artur Jarosik explained to us, the game is primarily intended for Amigas upgraded with an Apollo processor. However, it could also be playable on a 68060 processor with a grafics card with the music and sound effects turned off. Since the audio code is very resource hungry, it is explicitly written for V4 SAGA audio.

If you want to support the author, you can do so on his Patreon website. (dr)

Game Construction Kit: RedPill 0.9.6
RedPill, developed by Carlos Peris, is a game construction kit written in Amiblitz 3.8, which allows the development of games from various genres (see short tests of two Redpill games). RedPill is compatible with AGA and ECS, the "player" for playing the finished creations requires a total of 1.5 MB RAM.

This new version 0.9.6 provides many changes. Among other things, some games can now run on an Amiga with only 0.5MB chip RAM (Fast RAM still required). Also the loading of levels has been optimized and it is now much faster to switch between levels during the game. (dr)

Apollo-Team: Apollo V2 Accelerators Support Statement
Press release:
Dear V2 users, Apollo V2-series have been an extremely successful and hugely loved Amiga accelerator since 2014. Vast amounts of Amiga’s were resurrected from a lonely existence in the attic by “Vampirising” with the V2-600, V2-500 and V2-1200 cards featuring the powerful AMMX 68080 CPU.

Last year the Apollo Team declared the V2 accelerators End-of-Sale and introduced the new V4 range for Amiga 500/1000/2000 (Firebird), Amiga 1200 (Icedrake) and Amiga 4000 (Kraken) ( reported). In this Support Statement we want to give full clarity to our Apollo Vampire V2 user base about the end of the Roadmap for the Apollo V2 accelerators.


Apollo Team has always been and will always be 100% focused on compatibility, giving our users the best Amiga experience.

We continue to collect, analyse and mitigate reported issues from our users, specifically any experiences in game & demo incompatibilities. The recent maintenance v2.15 ApolloCore release for all V2-series shows our commitment and loyalty to V2 community.

For the foreseeable future the Apollo Team will keep bringing new “maintenance” ApolloCore release to V2 accelerators.


The physical limits of the possibilities in the V2-Series FPGA have been reached. This means the current functionality will be frozen, including the support for targeted OS platforms.

In practice, this means there are no new features to be expected. The V2 range will NOT support any other OS than Amiga OS3.x. Users that want to experience all new developments in ApolloOS, including the ApolloBoot multi-OS solution running up to 10 operating systems, are encouraged to look at the new Apollo V4 accelerators.

We hope that this Support Statement gives the needed clarity on the remaining Roadmap for the V2 accelerators. Please give us your feedback or tips for bug-fixes on the Apollo Discord channel: v2-series. (dr)
