The Amiga conversion is of the same standard as the Atari ST game (reviewed in TGM004, 86%) with colourful cartoon characters and detailed backdrops. Basically a platforms and ladders variant, and while still highly enjoyable, Black Lamp could have been improved for the Amiga.
Running round flip-screen castles and scrolling outdoor scenes makes a nice start, but when it's just about all there is, you're entitled to feel disappointed. Sorcery packed a good deal more game into a far smaller map, and that one came out years ago.

Wenn man sich erst mal an die vertrackte Steuerung gewöhnt hat, wird man bei der Lampensuche eines putzigen Hofnarrs seinen Spaß haben.
