Subject: Does anyone remember this very old, very niche Amiga 500 game? Crosspost from r/tipofmyjoystick
First person space shooter where you had to defend some space bases from being conquered by enemies
Estimated year of release:
Around 1985-1990 probably, maybe it's an older game ported to Amiga because it looked pretty bad for an Amiga game
You just see the empty black space, enemies are very far away and they look like dots, the bases you have to defend looks like vertically placed yellow dumbells. Everything moves very slowly. There is also a map on the screen where you can see the enemies spreading and bases locations.
I don't remember having ever seen any character in this game, you just shoot at slowly moving dots.
Notable gameplay mechanics:
There are 4 major bases you have to defend and other smaller bases, when you start the game they are all your friends, enemies start moving very slowly from the sides of the map towards the bases and you can see their advances on the map.
When enemies are close to a base you select that location on the map to go there, then you can see the "yellow dumbell" base floating and enemies trying to enter it, you shoot them from far away and it takes a while for the shot to reach them.
It's not an action game, it's more of a "guess where the enemy is going to be a few seconds from now" type of game.
If all the 4 major bases get conquered by enemies you lose the game.
There is no background music, just sound effects.
It was on a floppy disk together with other games in a small compilation.

Subject: Read/Unpack ADF file
Is there a PC program that can unpack an ADF file to a directory like a ZIP or RAR file? I can mount a disk in WinUAE, copy it to a hard drive directory on my PC but was looking for a simpler way.
Thanks in advance.

Subject: A600 wanted...
Like a dummy, I got rid of the last 600 I had and I'm pining to have one again... Ebay is ridiculous so I thought I might query the collective to see if anyone here might have one they are on the fence about getting rid of. I am a collector/user, not a reseller and would likely end up running a bbs on it.. and even if not it would most certainly get used...
Regardless, thanks for the awesome reddit.. I am a bbs software collector (all platforms) as well as a bluebox/wardialer/codescanner/etc software collector (most platforms)..

Bring back any memories?
Subject: ISO singing female voice clip for the Amiga, circa 1986
Hi folks, when I was a kid, my mom worked at an Amiga dealer and the salesmen would play a clip of a woman singing to demonstrate the sound capabilities of the computer.
I can't remember the lyrics, but it had a loud, rock-synth vibe and the clip was about 10 seconds long and it ended with the singer wailing a bit at the end.
Not sure if this rings a bell with anyone, but I'd love to be able to hear that clip again.
