A Look At Hermes Amiga & Dreamcast

Hermes is actually a Dreamcast game with AmigaOS4, MacOS-X and Windows versions on the same CD. The Dreamcast version can be seen as the main dish here i guess, the rest as side dishes as it is mostly seen as a Dreamcast only title as that is the only format the game autoboots on. The last attempt of this that i know of was Leona’s Adventure but as you may know this project failed to...

Lumberjack Reloaded for the Amiga came out a couple months ago now, the reason for this late article is that i wanted to try the game a bit more on various hardware here. There’s two versions available, 1 CD version (CD32/CDTV) and 1 Floppy version and the one i got is the CD version which works on both the CDTV and the CD32.
