Title: The most LONG-LIVED Amiga games...
Post by: starf81 on August 04, 2007, 04:55:53 PM
Hello!

Many times we've talked about our favourite Amiga games.
But... I remember I've spent so many hours playing games that today I stop after few minutes.
There are instead other games, perhaps not my favourite at all, even with an ugly graphics, that are immortal and I'm always ready to play them, also after fifteen or twenty years and even if I've completed them many many times.

In short... which are the most long-lived Amiga games?

It would be good if everyone could list 5-10 games in according to this idea because that could be a nice guide for the WHDLoad games that we MUST keep installed into our hard drives...  :-)
And... I'm pretty sure that we can still discover "new" games thanks to suggestions of other people!

Here is my list (in a random order...):

- Defender of the Crown
- The Secret of Monkey Island
- It Came From the Desert
- Zany Golf
- Pinball Fantasies
- Lemmings
- Sensible Soccer

I'm surely forgetting some others but it should be a good point to start...  :-D

For me, I'd have to say:
Codemaster's Micro-Machines

I still play often to this day, sometimes against one of my buddies who's also fan of the title.

Some games for which I'll still play a game for a lenghty amount of time occasionaly:
Colonization
Dizzy's Excellent Adventures
Lotus I, II, III & Top Gear 2
Prince of Persia
BC Kid
Syndicate

In no particular order:

Lemmings
Liberation (still needs a WHDLoad install!)
Simon the Sorcerer
Beneath a Steel Sky
Fate of Atlantis
Deluxe Pacman
Megaball
WormsDC

Hmm.... Things (that haven't already been mentioned) I still go back and play when I'm on an Amiga....

- Nuclear War
- Stunt (Track|Car) Racer (null-modem networked is a blast!)
- Fury of the Furries
- Shadow of the Beast series
- The Settlers (two player/two mouse mode is particularly excellent!)
- Super Stardust (which is now out in a new version on PS3?)
- Project X

And I'm sure I'm still forgetting plenty, as well...

Great suggestions!!!

With just three replies I've noticed that I've forgotten a lot of fantastic games.

Please, go on... games like those are an incredible way to... back to the past! :-)

I would also mention:
North & South
Another World
Flashback

Dune 2 is one of the few games I ever bought for the Amiga.  It's great until you've beaten it about a dozen times.  It has a very compatible HD installer included so you don't even need a WHDLoad slave.

So now the whole world knows who the damn Pirate is that killed the Amiga!!!  It's about time you confessed your crimes. Don't show up at any Amiga shows, you may get stoned to death with Boing Balls.

What a coincidence that this thread appears the day after I got the urge to spend some time on my A500 w/GVP 530 Turbo last night.  I started about 9pm to play a little "Pool of Radiance" SSI turn based RPG and before I knew it, the clock was showing 3am on it's face.  I have not played any games on any of my Amigas for many many months, but back in 1987 I spent many nights staying up until 3am playing one of the games shown in my list below, and then getting up at 5:30am to get ready for work.  Ahhhh, to be young again and able to recover from 2 hours sleep so easily.

Games I loved to play and would still get out of the box to spend a few hours playing today include:

Millennium 2.2, Return to Earth (spelling incorrect from the developer, not sure why I like this one so much)

All of the SSI turn based RPG games like; Pool of Radiance, Curse of the Azure Bonds, Secret of the Silver Blades, Pool of Darkness, Champions of Krynn, Death Knights of Krynn, Dark Queen of Krynn. (Construction Kit called "Unlimited Adventures" released on the PC, but not the Amiga, still has an active group creating new game modules in this style today.  When I am a better programmer I am going to port Unlimited Adventures to the Amiga with a conversion utility that will allow all the dozens of user created PC game modules to also be played on the Amiga)

MegaBall 4

UFO Enemy Unknown

Stellar Conflict (1 to 4 player strategy)

Fire Power (head to head split screen or null modem tank battle)

Many many more.  Amiga has so many great old games.  :-D
Title: Re: The most LONG-LIVED Amiga games...
Post by: Ilwrath on August 04, 2007, 07:20:18 PM
For sure... Plenty of greats we forget.
- Star Control (DUH! You'd think I'd remember THAT one!)

And lesser known ones that still offer some great play value:

- Starflight (was quite an amusing little space exploration / trading sim type thing)

- Big Business (The game itself is humorous in the research, corporate espionage, marketing, etc...  And the news headlines... "US Department of the Obvious study determines that large sums of money can be valuable!"  Then add in the fact that after playing for a little while the entire economy of the game glitches and goes pear-shaped, so you have people getting loans of billions of dollars from their parents...  This entire game usually results in laughter so hard someone loses beverage through the nose.)

- Conflict! (A rather simplistic but entertaining Middle East political simulator where you control Israel and try to bring stability to the area...  Mostly text-based but you inherit a difficult set of situations each time, trying to find the best ways of dealing with the unhappy people in the West bank, Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, etc...)

I realize you meant it as a joke but I'm not amused.  I gave up piracy in favor of public-domain software when I got my Amiga because I knew, as a programmer, that I would be a hypocrite not to since I would eventually be writing games and software that I would expect people to pay for.   :-x

That was a great game.

If you love Star Control, check out The Ur-Quan Masters (http://sc2.sourceforge.net/screenshots.php).

It's a open source port of the 3DO version of Star Control 2 (so it has great quality music and full voice acting).  Unfortunately, the main site only offers versions for Windows, Mac and Linux (which is fine by me since I'm run only Linux on my main box).

There's a source port to Amiga OS4 done by another party:

@SamuriCrow,

No offense meant.  At the moment it seemed amusing, to me anyway.

Sorry you did not appreciate the spirit that was intended, I did not mean it in anyway other than as a parody of the many messages here and elsewhere on the net where people have actually implied that piracy was responsible for the bankruptcy of Commodore and demise of Amiga production.

I hope you will accept my apology.

P.S. I also do not support piracy and have over 400 original boxed Amiga software titles (games and productivity) that I have paid for.
Title: Re: The most LONG-LIVED Amiga games...
Post by: Newtonian on August 04, 2007, 10:12:39 PM
Nobody else mentionned Micro-Machines.  Am I the only who loves that game?  It's really greate when you're playing one-on-one against someone else.

I also find the 'feeling' of the controls was perfect (like you you bounce of the bubbles in the bath level or slide in the sand level).

Has anyone else here even tried it?
Title: Re: The most LONG-LIVED Amiga games...
Post by: orange on August 04, 2007, 10:47:11 PM
yeah, sure I tried micromachines, I don't like it that much.
playing against computer can be frustrating

SuperSkidmarks, IndyHeat (and others) are better, not to mention SuperCars2

As a software developer who often used to use pirated tools, I realized that I would be hypocrite not to pirate games as well.

Post by: murple on August 04, 2007, 11:24:31 PM
I didnt own an Amiga until a few years ago, so most of my long ago game memories are on the C64. I was always fond of classic arcade type games (Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Frogger, fighting games etc) for their group entertainment value. Pulling out games like that for parties is one of the main things I use my C64/Amiga for now. I also used to really enjoy RPG and simulation games like Ultima IV, Seven Cities of Gold, SimCity, etc.

These lists gives me a good start on Amiga games to check out, so, thanks.

Hey Newtonian, I would try Micromachines, but can't find a P!rated copy in my pile of "Back-Up" floppy disks.

Looking in the "Room Of Amiga" just now I did find two more boxes full of boxed Amiga games that have not been added to the spreadsheet of "My Amiga Games".  Woo Hoo!  Maybe I'll find a few that are listed on this thread.

My first game that I was supposed to buy for my amiga 500 was "defender of the crown" but when I got to the computer store, it was sold out, so I bought the game

"Guild of Thieves" instead.

It was the absolute best text adventure I have ever seen. The interpreter was so great that you could write whole sentences and the interpreter understood. I have still, until this day not succeeded in finishing the game, I have never succeeded to get the parrot to say hurraay in the bank...  :)   I just love this game...

Lemmings is mandatory, no doubt. I doubt I'd survive for long without Civilization and Frontier. I also keep Deuteros installed in case I need a post-apocalyptic kick.

Nothing beats Lotus III and Stunt car racer when running with a null-modem, but as I only run emulated theese days, I guess that doesn't count.
Title: Re: The most LONG-LIVED Amiga games...
Post by: lionstorm on August 05, 2007, 07:03:37 PM
Cannon Fodder
Deuteros
SWOS
Kickoff2/ final whistle (the best game EVER)
Minskies furball (killer game for your girlfriend :-D)
Alien Breed Tower Assault


There is of course a lot more but these games will last forever (specially deuteros as I did not finish the game yet).

Total Chaos AGA: My family plays this every Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving etc. A great (and completely legal) way to kill your relatives.

Traders: Good 4 player adapter fun.  But we stopped playing this several months ago and will never play it again.

Various tank battle games: Always good fun.

I do not play any other Amiga games anymore.

UFO - Enemy Unknown
Worms

Most other games only really were fun to play through once.  For example, as much as I love Monkey Island 1+2, the magic was the exploration and unfolding story-line, it doesn't lend itself to repeat play IMO.

Lionstorm, I have been trying to find Deuteros for years with no luck.  Would you mind sending me a few jpegs of the front and back of the box and a couple of screen shots with a general description of the game play.  Someone suggested it would be a great improvement over another game I liked a lot, "Millennium 2.2 Return to Earth". (spelling incorrect by developer, not me)  If you don't mind, please send them to me via PM or regular email.

within each solar system.

After owning my (first) A500 for a few years and collecting a lot of boxed originals early on, I noticed many games that I would play for a week or two, while they were new, then never spend more than 5-10 minute stints on them again.

But, there were a -small- number of Amiga titles I'd play even when I didnt really feel like gaming on my A500;

-Rodland
-Buggy Boy
-Bubble Bobble
?

Quick, simple pick-up-and-play arcade style games.

Hi All-
Short games that give a little work break endure in my house.  The PD port of Freecell solitare is almost an addiction- and has the advantage of taking back several moves more than the PC version.  Crashes every so often, but not so bad that I'm not addicted.

Deluxe Galaga & MegaBall had a good run too, but Freecell has a grip on my brainstem or something.

I remember when friends used to visit me years ago, the game we always played was suprisingly a shareware game, it had great fast gameplay for 2 players but sometimes had problems with the way it made random maps, the game was Extreme Violence.

The game's author seems to have released it as freeware (assuming the shareware had some limitation or nag screen, I don't know) (http://www.geocities.com/simesgreen/ev/).  Might give it a try.

Didn't we just go through a thread almost exactly like this a few months ago?  I still have the spreadsheet on my (temporarily dead) desktop Dell that has hundreds of votes on dozens of games.

I am not saying that doing it again is bad, just hope we all have better things to do as well.

Going to give up trying to sell my house "By Owner" and going to a Realtor in the morning.

Anyone want to buy a "Fixer Upper" in the Southern Calif. area?  My medical condition prevents me from working on it any further and the bills are starting to mount up.  I hate to give in, but I am beat and can't fight it any longer.
