Amiga R-TypeIn the Internet Archive you will find numerous hits from the past &# 8211; among others, the classic space shoot-R-Type.

Some of the available games are indeed only demos &# 8211; given the large number of titles but there are enough full versions. The bigger problem so far is that not all titles are emulated easily &# 8211; Some games do not start spitting out weird error messages or get stuck in the start screen. These problems should be resolved in the coming weeks and months &# 8211; at the moment the HTLM5 emulation is not fully developed. Jason Scott, the project manager at the Internet Archive wrote on Twitter that there &# 8220; would be a billion things that would improve it and refine&# 8221 ;.

Interestingly, of course, the question of whether the project will be expanded in the future. Although numerous classics already available &# 8211; the very hot iron was investigated but so far in vain: Graphic hits like Turrican, the LucasArts adventures, the groundbreaking action games of the German cult Developer Thalion and the entire work of the Bitmap Brothers are missing at the moment &# 8211; whether there are the title is unclear, especially since there should be lizenrechtliche problems with some of these games certainly.
