Cannon Fodder, SWOS & Theme Park were my go to games.
Pity it's the PC ports of swos and cannon fodder as they aren't as good. Great prices though

The Amiga versions were a reward from GOD for being nice to animals and stuff. Long live the Amiga

Possibly a stupid question, but are these games to be bought that can be downloaded played in a desktop PC?
Must be my age, but I'm too used to mobile and console gaming nowadays
Both are classics and remind me of my misspent youth, just not sure what I'm buying...

massive heat on these games played em to death on my amiga, real game changers in the gaming world at the time
Do these old games work .. I downloaded battlefront 2 off steam - old version doesn't even star
Have very fond memories of these games on my Amiga 500.
Great games, but I bought Sensible Soccer a while back and have had a nightmare trying to get it to work with a pad. Gave up in the end.
My parents most hated games were :
SWOS
Cannon Fodder
Syndicate
Blake Stone
Theme Hospital
Secret of Monkey Island
Lemmings
... most played by me
Sensible Soccer is still my favourite football game of all time.

All those were **** amazing! haha.. although it was all about Flash Back. Best platformer ever made.
Staying firmly as memories , but omg heat!
Sensible World of Soccer... I genuinely blame that game for my GCSE results! If I hadn't spent so much time playing that I really do believe I could of improved each subject by a grade.
never mind mate. ^^^^^^ at least we have the same bad taste in football teams lol

You Sir, is my god!
Used to love player manager back in the day.
Easy way to score is to do a lob/chip shot - just work out your range!

Cannon Fodder and SWOS on PC was never as good as the Amiga versions.
Significantly worse than their Amiga counterparts, particularly sonically, this was a time when there were many variations of PC Soundcards.

Sensible Software, the last bastion of European Commodore gaming successes, the slow death of the Amiga brand alongside the shift of gaming from 2D to 3D led to their demise, RIP Sensible Software, RIP Richard Joseph......

Only two ways Sensible Soccer should be played.....

With this weapon of choice......

Sank hours into Sensi, Superfrog, Skweek, Turrican, Speedball, Xenon 2 & Lemmings on my Amiga 500 back in the day and I was 24 then.
Trusty Konix Navigator joystick, my wife armed with 'The Bug' and our early married years were bliss
As has already been said, the Amiga versions were head and shoulders above any others.
Used to swap games with Amiga contacts I found in New Computer Express.
Happy days.



Used to play my brother at Sensi on the Amiga all the time, was the only platform to play it on, pure class

We had an A600
His weapon of choice was a Quickshot Python and mine was actually a Mega Drive Pad (only the B button worked when it was plugged into the Amiga but that was all you needed for Sensi)

How those pads and joysticks never broke after being thrown about so much, I'll never know :-D
