Is this pretty much Defender of the Crown with mobsters?

Damn remember a while back when we heard a company was buying a lot of the Amigas back catalogue (where possible). I thought i recognised the name 'CW Entertainment'

Not too keen on this one but i'm sure there'll be LOTS of Amiga games coming out like this soon if they've got the 'engine' all working well. Looking forward to more

Actually I'm sure the CW stands for Cinemaware, as so far the two games that have been released recently were theirs.

Yeah apologies i think i got it mixed up with this company who now owned tons of Amiga games, as you say perhaps this is just CinemaWare and no one else. Good to see some classic Amiga games out there

I was a fan of this game and remember thinking "wow" about it.
But my faves was wings and rocket ranger.
Wings was coming to ios couple years ago... But it never appeared

IIRC Wings for iOS became complicated to get working "cycle exact" with the Amiga emulation layer that was in place. Whereas manomio was able to get Defender of the Crown working perfectly, Wings presented some unique challenges.

Cinemaware picked Wings development back up and they launched a Kickstarter to redo the whole game (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...stered-edition). I believe Cinemaware are still accepting funds from their own web site: http://cinemawarewings.com

Wings was one of my favorite games, so I do hope this makes it out for Mac and iOS!
