The Adventures of Willy Beamish (Amiga)

Happy holidays everyone! As, Retro Treasures will be taking a few days off, I thought I'd search and post something I had always associated with this time of the year: The Adventures of Willy Beamish as developed by Dynamix and published by Sierra. A cartoon-y adventure game that's I've loved since I was a child.

So, here's a fine copy of Willy Beamish (Amiga) up for grabs on eBay. It's the German Amiga version of the game and it comes in its glorious box with all the 3.5" disks, the excellent manual, the stickers and that pizza leaflet. Seller ships worldwide.

Happy 2016!

Rayman (Atari Jaguar)

It was stunning in the '90s and it's stunning now. Only difference is that Rayman is nowadays a huge international franchise, whereas 20 years ago it was originally envisaged as an Atari Jaguar exclusive. Still, if you do own Atari's final console, you do owe it a copy of Rayman; it was after all the system's finest platformer and its cartoony 2D were truly beautiful. Also, it's pretty rare too.

Anyway. Here's a Rayman (Atari Jaguar) auction. The game comes complete in its box with manual and lovely cartridge and the seller ships worldwide.
