If you already know about this then move on. This news story has been plugged via Twitter, Facebook and every Amiga and retro related site imaginable. Work's been really hectic as of late, and unfortunately this has been the first chance I've had to give this a plug.
Originally due for release towards the latter part of 1994, and reviewed in the September 1994 issue
of Amiga Power (reviews also appeared in other magazines of the time)
, Putty Squad has been one of the most talked about of all the Amiga's "missing in action" titles. Not surprising really, when it would seem that the game was completely finished and sat there gathering dust.
Now, some 19 years after its release System 3 Software have kindly given us Amiga owners a rather lovely Christmas present - the full version of Putty Squad, to download, for free!
Simply point your web browser over to the System 3 web site at http://www.system3.com/
, and you'll see a link to Amiga Putty Squad on the main page.
The zip file contains two disk images, so you'll need to either play these in an emulator, or have some way of getting the images back on to floppy disk.
If you'd like to find out more about how this release came to be, you'll want to read this thread
over on the English Amiga Board.
Those of you who'd like to install this to hard drive may want to download the WHDLoad installation, which you'll find here
It just leaves me to finish by saying a big thank you to all at System 3 and the Amiga community for helping to make this available to the rest of us.
Right, I'm off to give this a go and see what all the fuss is about.
