PowerPlay Arcade #1

Power Arcade 1
After the cancellation of the Power Module, Amiga announced the release of a range of new cartridges at the 1983 Summer CES in Chicago. At the time they were known under the title of Multiplay Video Game Cartridges but a few months later had been simplified to the Power-Play Arcade series. In a time when other manufacturers were only including 2 games on a cartridge Amiga Corp. had managed to fit three. The company resurrected 3-D Ghost Attack, and added the new 3-D Havoc and 3-D Genesis games. As can be guessed from the titles, these all used the 3D glasses found with the Power Module.

The cartridge was expected to go on sale around Christmas 1983, retailing at around £30-40. Despite the small media attention, the games were never released.

Thanks to Atari Gaming Headquarters for providing information and screenshots.
