Star Wars Commodore Amiga port
The Commodore Amiga port of the smash hit Atari coin op game, Star Wars,
was published in 1998 but Doomark. This game was released 5 years
after the coin-op release. Obviously the wireframe graphics were
ancient by Commodore Amiga standards, consider the bouncing ball demo.
This port does give some improvements in sound with clearer sampled speech
direct from the movie. Take a look at our article on the the audio capability of the
Star Wars Coin-op game.
