Commodore Amiga Gets a New Game: Worthy

It may be a relic of the 16-bit era, but the Amiga has a new action puzzle game called Worthy...

Thanks to the indie and homebrew communities, systems that have long since gone out of production are still getting new games released for them. The great-looking Tanglewood is a 21st century addition to the Sega Mega Drive’s library, for example, while the Sega Dreamcast has enjoyed a wealth of support over the past few years.

All of which brings us to the action puzzler, Worthy – a new game for the Commodore Amiga from indie developer, Pixelglass. Looking like a cross between Gauntlet and Boulderdash, with its tiny hero running around a maze killing enemies and collecting diamonds, Worthys colorful sprites and chunky typography immediately recall a bygone era of 16-bit gaming.

During its long life in the 80s and 90s, the Amiga built up a huge library of great games, from deep simulation titles to bouncy, vibrant platformers – and Worthy looks of a piece with the latter, and such titles as Zool, Push Over, and Putty

Although Worthy has been programmed specifically for 1MB, PAL Amigas, it’s available in a variety of options, from a digital download to physical releases on CD and floppy disc. We can’t say whether it’s a belated classic for the system, but it’s still pleasing to see the Amiga supported so long after Commodore stopped making it.
