I made this more than 20 years ago

Note: This article appeared in Dutch originally on my other site, Plaatj.es.

24 years ago I was experimenting with AMOS on my Amiga 600, and this was the first game I built. I uploaded it to Aminet, a network of websites and mirrors containing a huge library of free software for Amiga systems.

By accident I ran into this youtube video. The video both excited me, and peaked my interest if other old projects of mine were still floating around the internet somewhere. A quick Google search helped me remember my old email address, and the address helped me find back my long lost uploads to Aminet.

LHA was for the Amiga what ZIP and RAR are to the pc currently.
