I think if I had your setup, I'd just sit and play Captive for hours. I occasionally dust off one of my Amigas with the intention of playing it, but end up losing a day dicking around with the setup as I've forgotten more than I can remember when it comes to the Amiga.

It's surprisingly easy to do.

1 Pi3 and a memory card. 16GB is fine
1 mayflash adapter for the joysticks (and a joystick if you haven't got one)
(alternatively, pretty much any usb controller works fine)
USB mouse and keyboard
RetroPie install
Then follow this guide

Pretty much it.

The kids are currently playing Sooty and Sweep's Fun With Numbers from 1991. Who said kids won't play retro?

They seem to like Mega Drive games best. I guess they're the right age ;)

Also, relatively easy to get into aren't they? Only 3 buttons to choose from and they're all there facing you.

Ah, but the Pi-miga makes things really simple, especially for joystick controlled games. One Button, no faff.

Now, if only I could get it to quit from the joypad...
