While I'll always have a very big space in my heart for my first gaming love — the C64 — it was its successor the Amiga that really delivered games that still stand up today.

Think Speedball 2, Lemmings, Sensible Soccer and many many more.

So the announcement of a fantastic looking Amiga emulator (iAmiga) for the iPhone (and soon iPad) is great news for both retro heads and younger gamers who may have missed out on the Amiga first time round.

After spending some serious time with the iAmiga system, I can tell you that, for an early build, it is truly impressive. While it's true that a few of the games that I tried glitched at some point, the vast majority ran perfectly and buttery smoothly on my iPhone 4.

I'm talking about totally accurate sound, flawless graphics, glass smooth animation just as if the games were being played on the standard config Amiga 500 that iAmiga emulates. Additionally, they are in talks with an unnamed major mobile publisher that's very interested in putting Amiga classics in the hands of today's gamers.
