You can turn your Android device into a Commodore Amiga using the Amiga Forever Essentials emulator which is available on Google Play for £0.65p.
Amiga Forever - Workbench 1.3
For your money you get legal versions of the Amiga Operating System (OS) 1.2, 1.3, 2.04 and 3.0 giving you the platform to run A500, A600 and A1200 games and applications.

You’ll still need to supply your own software to run but fortunately there’s loads of classic Amiga games and applications out there which can be downloaded legally. Here are some great places to start your gaming collection:

  • Factor 5 – Katakis, BC Kid and the brilliant R-Type are all available from their website.
  • Cinemaware – Developers of classics like TV Sports Football, IT Came From The Desert have a tons of games available
  • Amiga Future – This German site is a huge repository of Amiga games, demos and apps and even includes raunchy stuff like Deluxe Strip Poker
  • Dream17 – Play tons of classic Team 17 games like Alien Breed, Body Blows and Project X

I’d recommend using the EAGER (Every Amiga Game Ever Released) and Moby Games websites as these are great repositories of info about the stacks of Amiga games that were released for the machine.

You can also buy the Amiga Forever emulator for Windows or play Amiga games in your browser using the free HTML5 Emulator.
