Just a glorified speccy in the end really.
Just check out those specs though.. put's my P4 to shame it does.

Sure i've still got mine somewhere. One day i'll probably bring it out of retirement and have a go :)

I don't even know where it is any more. Could be in the loft or in storage.

If I find it i'll let you know.

# blimey!
I still have the issues of Crash saying how great it was gonna be. Wonder if there's an emulator anywhere

# in the grand scheme of things
they were doomed to fail; not as good as the Atari ST, Amiga, Megadrive or SNES, and without the cash of the giants behind them.

I actually met the two guys that created it at a convention once (sad I know).
I remember the struggle they had to keep that company going. Very competitive around that time.
When PC's became viable games machines that just finished them off.

# i'm just as sad
i'd love to meet the original Amiga design team. Not that I could meet Jay Miner, what with him being dead and all, but still.
