After Shadow of the Beast I enjoyed The Killing Game Show and Ballistix.

To be fair the chronology is a little backward: I bought my first Amiga 500 just so I could get SoTB but it did not come with it but did have the other two I name.  I got Beast many years later and was not disappointed.

Heck, I think tomorrow I am going to fire up Ballistix.

Here are my takes on what games to play:

Crazy Cars 3 - Nice single player ladder with decent advancements

Star Control - There are two styles of play, ship dual and senarios.  Once you get good with ship dualing try some of the senarios

Cannon Fodder - Gets a little repeative but great fun

Dungeon Master - One of my all time favorite games.  I like to pick it up every 5 years or so.  Last time I was finally able to beat it.  Great online resources to help you when you get stuck

Black Crypt - like DM but better looking and MUCH harder

Enjoy!

I see no one mentioned Dune II - an excellent game that will run on your machine.
Also, Chaos Engine, It came from the Desert, and I'll second Wings.

Agreed, Dune II needs a stock A1200 to be fun.  Even so it is a bit laggy with switching from the build select screen to main playing screen compared to the PC.  Just like Wing Commander was sold as an OCS game but really needed a A1200 to be a pleasant experience! Why not make these games AGA in the first place?

No need for AGA, runs pretty well on stock A1200 and with a 030 is a dream :-)
ADS was extremely playable on A1200 too.

What I mean is; as it requires a 020 14Mhz for speed why not upgrade the graphics to an AGA screen mode while you're at it. The CD32 version of Wing Commander looks far better than the A500 version but wasn't available to A1200 owners until the WHLoad installer become available! What a waste :-(

I know its been mentioned but Turican II is probably one of the best games ever made.
Deluxe Galaga and Delux Packman by the late Edgar M. Vigda are also great games

+1. Also second the votes for the SSI "Gold Box" games (Pool of Radiance, etc.) if you like that kind of game.

Also tossing in a vote for Battle Squadron. You can find clips of all these games on YouTube to see if they perk your interest. :)

I have never played them but surely Super Turrican 1 & 2 on the SNES give the Amiga versions a run for their money?

Just looked up a quick YouTube video - the SNES versions don't even look like the same game.  I might be slightly biased, but IMHO the Amiga version is still better.  ;)

Im sure they do, but as far as the Amiga is concerned Turican II is hard to beat.
