I am wondering is there a website or a blog that updates daily or almost daily that have hundreds of icaros games, reviews of games links to download games for icaros?

I am going to buy that tiny laptop in a week or so and I want to install icaros 2.0 in it and I want to fill it up with so much games I can have fun with it in a bus or in car or anywhere I go. It will be like a mini portable console system :D :D :D

ALSO I want to fill that laptop with lots of movies too!! YES!

Also side, side, side note is there sticker I can buy that have icaros logo and icaros logo to put in the keyboard keys, etc?

Most of the Aros (x86) games are at the Aros-Archive. They are separated into categories so you can choose the kind of games you like. It's updated about once a week.

Many games are also at the web sites of the AROS porters Yannick, Bszili and SerkUK. Check out the ArosWorld web-links page for more info.

I don't think there are any game reviews, but you can get info about some AROS games by going to the ArosWorld News Categories and look through the Games section.

Good luck !

In additional to cavemann's answer,

some enthousiast did start a gamer website (called aros playground) [url=arosgamer.blogspot.com/]here[/url], but unfortunately most people are so busy that it hasn't been updated for quite a while now.

As mentioned by cavemann some porters put their work up on their own websites, or upload them to the aros archives or aminet.

In case you are serious about gaming and considering your quest for an icaros compatible laptop, be aware that when you are truly collecting aros games (and want to have them all installed) you have to take diskspace into account.

especially bszili and sometimes serk concentrate on porting games that require a lot of diskspace for the game-data. So, a couple of GB's extras is required or at least can't hurt :)

As a hint, my AROS gaming machine has more then 5 GB of games installed and that's only with games that i like to play more often.

Thank you for the heads up! Yes I am beyond serious! I want to fill up the HD with every single icaros game made for it or ported for it in existence. When new ones come up I will update more into the folder. So, yes I am serious.

However, my concern since icaros is an going growing OS what would happen if say I have put 5 GB worth of games and then icaros 2.1 shows up, or icaros 2.4 shows up and so on, would that mean I have to redownload all these games again because I have to keep wiping HD? Can the new versions just be updated on the OS itself without affecting files and documents?

I use another partition for games and stuff. When I update the Os, I only format the system partition and not the partition with all the apps I want to keep.

Or if you prefer, use an Usb stick for the system and only update it. Then use your internal drive for your own files.

No! :) I would rather very high speed boot up time and I want my icaros on a HD as it is my main and only OS I want installed in the HD. I will make three paritions.

1) Parition SYS: (4 GB)
2) Work: (20 GB)
3) Games (rest)

Of course depending on the available space it will fluctuate to that.
