Best (rare) Amiga games ever
« on: September 30, 2004, 01:04:52 PM »
Lets talk about good stuff, I'm tired of those "worst" threads.

I guess we all know what are the best Amiga games of all times , but it would be nice to tell which games are really good AND RARE (were never very popular).

For eg. "Bumpy" is superb, IMHO.

 :-)
Better sorry than worry.

hehe.. that would be "Turbo Raketie" <-- not sure on how you spell it, it was a game from Finland :-)

A nice two player game, where you controlled an "always falling" rocket (read: triangled object). with had some weapons used to shoot down the enemy :-) As you might imagine it had very poor graphics but the gameplay was 110% :lol:

The correct spelling is "Turboraketti". Check out the official homepage for Turboraketti II :-D

Putty Squad ! This game is so rare, NO ONE HAS IT ! Well, at least not that I know of. If someone DOES have the full game of this, it HAS to be released on the internet, for every Amiga user in the world to enjoy. A lot of us played the demo, which was quite a few levels, and surely everyone loved it. There's even a WHDLoad Installer for the demo !The gameplay was awesome, the graphics were spectacular, and the music and sound were spot-on. Why was this game never fully released ? The magazines must have got a full version of the game because they all reviewed it, and the screenshots they used weren't from the demo.

Maybe we should try and get the full game released. Does anyone know how to contact the authors or the guys who worked on the magazines when it was reviewed ?
Amiga user forever.

If you want rare AND good then top contender has to be Moonstone (A Hard Day's Knight) - that commands up to £75 on eBay these days and from what I recall is a very fine game too! Certainly I thought the demo was cool at the time!

Wayne Gretzky Hockey 2 (from Bethesda) was a damn fine game and wasn't really mainstream (at least not in not hockey playing nations). You were able to get a massively tactical game going, that the EA Sports NHL-series never has gotten close to. EA Sports games are mostly hit and run-type, while in Gretzky you could for instance get a good powerplay going.  :-)

There's this game I used to play a lot on a friend's Amiga wich seems to be quite rare these days. It's name was Blade Warrior, and although it wasn't as sophisticated as Shadow of the Beast and the likes, I found it very enjoyable. Basically, you were a wandering swordsman/magician travelling through a world entirely portrayed in silhouette. There were some nice touches, such as the spell construction system and the ability to travel not only of foot, but by dragon as well. I believe it was written by Jason Kingsley from Imageworks.

@Arthur
Yeah, Blade Warrior was a nice game.  :-)


I just remembered the Team 17 budget release Arcade Pool. Me and a friend palyed Speed Pool every day for a whole summer. I booted it up a month ago only to find that he had an almost insane record on the high score list.  :-x

Lets see...

- There's the follow up to Vroom, F1 from Domark. Very fast, very intense.
- Fury of the Furries. You had to give this one time & when you did you found that EVERY SINGLE level was different. You don't get that very often.
- Kid Chaos from Gremlin. Sonic meets a cave man. Originally called Kid Vicious, which I though was a better name.
- Out to Lunch. Top quality platformer that was most known on the SNES.
- Push Over. I don't know how popular this was but I found it hard to find when I was after it. I'd like to see something like this done again.
- Vital Light. Well polished puuzzler with colours.
- Virocop. Silky smooth Shoot-em-up action.
- Yo Joe! This was so good but I only played the demo.

That's my commercial selection straight from the disk box... Onto PD, Shareware & demos (From memory)...

- Already mentioned. Putty Squad. I NEED THIS GAME!
- G2. Unreleased game from Psygnosis. AF had a demo.
- Ork Attack. Dropping rocks on Orks has never been so much fun.
- Odyssey. "Swish-em-up" where you could change form into different animals. Never found this one (Demo'd on AF 75b(
- Links Golf (US Gold) extra courses. I never found them but would like to.
- Super TwinTris. I had this on a cover disk but haven't now & cannot find it anywhere. It simply played really smooth.
- Wheelchair Gladiators. There was something appealing about this one but I'm not sure what.

FuZion.

Did anyone ever play the Amiga version of Stormlord?  That was one of my favourites, and I got it for $20, back in probably 1992 or so...  it had juicy graphics (looks good even today), great sounds and superb music... even the gameplay was good  :-D
