Software titles mentioned / re-creation of screenshots


Further, I want to dig into all the software and games titles they showcased, sometimes with a couple of seconds with captions, other times only mentioned in the speech, but also sometimes not even mentioned by captions or spoken word.

I will to the best of my abilities and know-how produce new screenshots and links to all the software and games mentioned/visible in the entire Amiga Promo video in the order it was seen (more or less).

I also noticed during the research that even if the caption said a particular software name, often the sequences before or right after would appear to be from other software, so back then, one "could" get confused what animation or graphics actually came from the titles mentioned in speech or in caption. But, it does not matter, Amiga ruled everything no matter what anyway.

From video: First Shapes by First Byte.

In the video, they clicked on the "Toy Factory", then on "Truck".




Screenshot from the actual "First Shapes" software, where I took the same screenshot as seen in the video.

From video: This impressive animation sequence (or software we're fooled to think) is not an actual software, but rather an entire disk with a sequence loaded as an animation.

For years I always thought this was the coolest software to have back in the days, but must admit I get a little bit let down when it proved only to be a non-interactive animation.

Disk used:
"Probe Sequence (1987-06)(Joel Hage - Keith Doyle).adf"
File: "probeseq.film", which is an script to be played with a tool called "The Projector Version 1.0o 07/12/87 - Copyright (C) 1987, Right Answers Group"





Screenshot from the actual "Probe Sequence" film and disk, where I created the same as seen in the video.

From video: KidTalk by First Byte.

In the video, they chose "Speak" from the main menu and this is basically just the first screen after that.




Screenshot from the actual KidTalk software, where I simply chose "Speak" from the main menu, and screenshot the same as the video.

Disk used:
"KidTalk (1986)(First Byte).adf"



From video: This animation and image is not from any educational software, but rather a loaded IFF image called "Kunstherz" with color cycling animation turned on.

Most likely they just loaded it into "GraphicCraft" from typically a disk named "Graphicraft v1.1 (1985)(Commodore)[WB].adf", where this particular file is located.



Converted from original IFF to PNG.

I found the same color cycling picture on disk:
"Graphicraft v1.1 (1985)(Commodore)[WB].adf"



From video: A slideshow/animation from Deluxe Video by Electronic Arts.

This isn't interactive or an actual software, but merely part of a bigger animation slideshow script loaded of default samples of Deluxe Video disk!

They simply loaded "Videos/Instruction" of whatever Deluxe Video disk version they had :-)



Screenshot from the actual Deluxe Video software, where I simply loaded the "Videos/Instruction" and waited until the exact same screen appeared as in the video.

Disk used:
"bamiga_sector_one_bs1_2018_collection\bs1 part 43\deluxe video v1.00.adf"



From video: Great States (USA) by Designing Minds.

In the video, they most likey chose "States Game" from the menu.




Screenshot from the actual "Great States" software, but I was unable to find "Great States I", or "Great States - USA", not sure if that ever existed though.

The video has a header called "Great States USA", however I used "Great States II", and so says the title as well, no USA mentioned.
Anyway, it does not matter, at least this is the software series shown in the video.

Disk used:
"Great States II (1986)(Designing Minds).adf"



From video: Image is called "Eye.pic".



The actual image "eye.pic" as used in the video.

Found on:
"bird.thecompany BBS\33. GAMES & UTILS [DMS, LHA]\USERS\TheKaraCollection\Pictures.lha"

and inside directory "tkc_pictures", named "Eye.pic", even as PNG format.

I believe it originally oriented from "The Kara Collection: Pictures", "THE KARA COLLECTION CD-ROM"



From video: The Surgeon by ISM.

In the video, they simply started playing the game.



Screenshot from the actual The Surgeon software, where I basically just started the thing and grabbed more or less the same view as in the video.

Disk used:
"Surgeon, The (1986)(ISM).adf"



From video: Donald Duck's Playground by Sierra.

In the video, they went into "DuckBurg" at Intermediate level.



Screenshot from the actual Donald Duck's Playground software, where I choose the Intermediate level during the "DuckBurg" screen.

Disk used:
"Donald Duck's Playground (1987)(Sierra).adf"



From video: Kinderama by Unicorn.

In the video, they chose "The Robot Story" and played through until 5 robots was left and "Mary" in the video answered correctly.



Screenshot from the actual Kinderama software, where I answered correctly :-)

Disk used:
"Kinderama (1987)(Unicorn).adf"



From video: Robot Reader - The Little Red Hen by Hilton Android.

This page is 4th in the story.



Screenshot from the actual "Robot Reader - The Little Red Hen" software, where I stopped at page 4 just as the video.

Disk used:
"Robot Reader - The Little Red Hen (1987)(Hilton Android).adf"



From video: The New Technology Coloring Book by Software Toolworks.

In the video, they chose "Library/Show Catalog" from the menu and selected "CAT Scan", and basically just had filled some areas with color.




Screenshot from the actual "The New Technology Coloring Book", where I chosen "Library/Show Catalog", then selected "CAT Scan" from the menus and filled in colors just as in the video.

Disk used
"New Technology Coloring Book, The (1986)(Software Toolworks).adf"



From video: Keyboard Cadet by Mindscape.

In the video they just started a lesson.



Screenshot from the actual Keyboard Cadet, where I basically just started a typing lesson.

Disk used:

From video: Math Wizard by Unicorn Software.

In the video, they started "Wizard's Flash" from the menu and started playing the game, stopping at first question.




Screenshot from the actual Math Wizard software, where I simply chose "Wizard's Flash" from the game menu and stopped at the first question as in the video.

Disk used:
"Math Wizard (1986)(Unicorn).adf"



From video: The Perfect Score by Mindscape.

In the video they chose "Practice/Analogies" and Question Set 2 and answered first question successfully.



Screenshot from the actual "The Perfect Score", where I chose the "Analogies" from the "Practice" menu and selected "Question Set 2" and pretty much stopped there as the question are randomly given :-)

Disk used:
"Perfect Score (1987)(Mindscape).adf"




From video: Math Wizard by Unicorn Software.

In the video they showed the 3rd game from the menu called "Dragon Race" and had answered a couple of questions already to allow the dragon to almost reach the castle.

From video: Math Wizard by Unicorn Software.

From video: Unknown software and graphics used.



From video: Early Fur Trade of the Great Lakes by MicroEd.

Not much is showed in the video, basically just 1 screenshot flying by.

In fact, I have not found this disk anywhere on internet or in my own collection, so disk is pending for now.



From video: American History Adventure by Intellectual Software.

Now, its very hard to actually read any text on the blue screen, but from the looks of it, I believe its the one mentioned above, it was created in 1985 and was programmed in AmigaBasic.

I focused on the title of the CLI window, which seems to match "QUEUE ADVENTURE PROGRAM" -> See my screenshot from actual software to the right.




Screenshot from (I believe) the "American History Adventure" where I basically just loaded the software, and clicked some keys.

Disk used:
"American History Adventure (1985)(Intellectual Software).adf"



From video: Galileo v1.0 by Infinity Software.

In the video, they most likely took the Telescope view on the moon or something.



Screenshot from the actual Galileo software, where I played around with some menus and chose Telescope function on Venus.

Disk used:
"Galileo v1.0 (1986)(Infinity Software)[cr ECA].adf"



From video: Unknown software and graphics used.

Image can be found on internet, but most likely the source of it, it can be identified by "Monocytes and macrophages"
