The Chaos Engine (Amiga 1200)

Legendary 16-bit coders The Bitmap Brothers released the finest run-and-gun shooter the Amiga had ever seen in 1993. It was none other than the excellent The Chaos Engine, a steampunk shmup set in Victorian times, and involving time travel, quality local co-op, shiny graphics, and near perfect design. It is a true AGA classic, and a game that never aged.

To grab it for your Amiga 1200 you can bid on this The Chaos Engine (Amiga 1200) eBay auction. The game on offer has been tested, and comes in its original box on two 3.5" disks with the manual.

Boxed Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128

It was admittedly slightly under-cooked and a tad late, but we all loved the ZX Spectrum 128. It was a beautiful machine to look at, offered much more RAM than the 48k model, had a pretty decent sound chip, and was meant to be the final Sinclair computer. It is also pretty rare these days, and if you always wanted one you should definitely be looking at this lovely ZX Spectrum 128 eBay auction.

The micro seems to be in good condition (though something might be off with the keyboard), and comes in its original, well-preserved box. The power supply, required cables, and manuals are also included.

20 Games for the Sega CD

I still consider the Sega CD (and Mega CD) an extremely and inexplicably charming machine, that somehow and despite the broken promises managed to almost live up to the promise of an emphatically different next generation of gaming. Obviously Sega's 16-bit add-on didn't set the world on fire, but it did get several great and/or interesting games released for it.

So... You actually can buy 20 of said games via this 20 Sega CD games eBay auction. Each one comes complete in its box, and the collection on offer includes such personal favourites as Dungeon Master II, Rise of the Dragon, Dracula Unleashed, Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective vol.II, NBA Jam, and Jurassic Park.

Fantastic Commodore 64 Bundle

Commodore's record selling 8-bit computer has aged gracefully, and remains an utterly wonderful platform to play, reminiscent, and create on. Also, this amazing Commodore 64 Bundle currently being auctioned on eBay is a great, and most probably cost effective way of revisiting this definitive '80s micro and its software.

The Commodore 64 and monitor on offer work fine, and are accompanied by a printer and an apparently problematic disk drive. Add to those three complete copies of War In Middle Earth, The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, and Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, tons of magazines, books, and 50 or so loose disks, and you have the beginnings of a great collection.

Super Mario Land (Game Boy)

The first Mario game I ever played, Super Mario Land on the Nintendo GameBoy was released in 1989, and developed under the supervision of the legendary Gunpei Yokoi. It is an excellent, varied platformer with short shmup bits, that's been tailored both to the needs of gaming on the go, and to the GameBoy's humble hardware.

Happily, and before prices rise to ludicrous levels, you can buy a fully boxed, sealed copy of the game via this Super Mario Land (Game Boy) eBay auction. As is the case with all GameBoy cartridges this will happily run on any version of the handheld.
