WHAT'S NEW IN UPGRADE?

There are 20 new features, 29 new programs & plugins, 6 new games, 4 new demos, and 22 software updates! See the extensive list below.

We've also prepared a special portable version on a Bootable Crystal Flash Drive for YOU - the hardcore Amiga fan! :) Check our AmiKit website for more details. The offer is limited.

Do you remember the good old blue Workbench 1.2 from 1986? Revive your childhood Amiga memories with our new Modern Retro theme preset!

We have more flashbacks for you. Do you remember Barbarian or New Zealand Story? There are new remakes included! We’re also bringing you the “Lost Level” of the legendary Another World, as well as my favourite game, Mad TV - the strategy TV simulator game.

There are also some exclusive games for you too! A shoot 'em up game called Kobo Deluxe and an adventure called Abandoned House.

We've added many new features, programs and optimizations. For example, AmiKit XE now includes a new desktop pop-up notification system similar to the OS4 one. Or you can play supported games (or demos) in a Workbench window thanks 'Picture in Picture' (PIP) mode support and new emulation engine (WinUAE). And much more!

AmiKit XE now includes over 420 Amiga programs and supports the new AmigaOS 3.1.4, new Amiga Forever 8 and new Picasso96 driver too!
