Games available by emulating game consoles on the Vampire

Many desirable games were released for arcade machines and for game consoles but not for the Amiga. Some of these games can still be made to run on an Amiga, by using specific software that emulates the intended hardware for those games. Thanks to the unprecedented speed of the Vampire, many of these games run pretty well, even with the overhead added by the emulation layer. This opens up a whole new world of previously unavailable games to Amiga users.

There are many game consoles that can be emulated on the Amiga / Vampire, but the most useful ones are detailed below. The included comparison tables highlight the games that have become playable owing to the speed boost of the Vampire, compared to previous state-of-the-art solutions.
