Genre & year of release doesn't matter.

I'm almost completely unfamiliar with Amiga games, save for what I know from PC ports, and a few liberated releases like Putty Squad and Perihelion.

It'd be nice if someone could point me towards a free downloads site like RGB Classic Games or dosgames.com. So far I've only found a big listing of free games here, without any downloads attached, and very little actual information on game developers and publishers to verify that the freeware games they list are indeed such.
