And the Amiga didn't just have quality, it also had quantity, with a healthy ecosystem of games developers releasing a host of titles released on the platform which are today rightfully regarded as classics.
The good news is that some of these vaunted games are available right now on your mobile device. If the Spectrum era is more your thing then we've got you covered right here, but for now, sit back and enjoy our rundown of the best Amiga titles available on iOS and Android.
1. Beneath a Steel Sky: Remastered
Yours for £2.99, this is basically the original Beneath a Steel Sky, ported over to mobile operating systems. The major difference is that instead of going 'pixel hunting', searching for the right part of the screen to click on for your item or clue, the remastered edition re-imagines the mechanic for the modern era and gives you 'item hotspots' to look for.
Besides that it's the original cyberpunk science-fiction point-and-click adventure you remember from 1994, and that can only be a good thing.
