While I do try to avoid writing on weekends, this was too good not to spread the word! As thanks to both Earok and Saberman letting us know earlier today, they have told us that AmigaLive has made available a hack of the Amiga version of the 1994 game ‘Last Action Hero’. As in the words of Earok “AmigaLive did a hack of the Last Action Hero awhile ago, I got permission to repost it here. It features a raft of gameplay balance tweaks to improve on the notorious film tie in.”

Furthermore as noted by SquawkBox via the EAB forums “Last Action Hero + above mentioned speed hack was made as an ADF by Aladin (only existed as a WHD package until now) which was tested on a 1 MB A500, works as intended”. Changes include : Unlimited continues, selectable lives up to 9 from 5 max, health is 100% restored with all food types, increased move speed left/right (from 2 to 4), increased move speed up/down (from 1 to 3), decreased flying distance when hit, decreased flying time when hit, decreased backflip self damage (from 5 to 1), and finally decreased backflip damage to enemies (from 16 to 4)
