Putty squad was apparently never released for amiga  :-( .

Some magazines had reviews of the full version, but they probably just played the ms-dos version.

I had the ms-dos version once, but the disks died.

LionHeart was my all time fave, dunno how popular it was, had great gameplay and multilevel scrolling background was awesome for an a500.

Does anyone remember Carrier Command? I'm not sure I've seen many games that have been done well like it since. It always struck me that it'd be a great game to play over a link either against someone or working as a team.

If the name doesn't ring a bell, have a look at:

1. Rick Dangerous
2. 3D Pool
3. Virus
4. Carrier command
5. Cybernoid 2

on it... that was amazing, all those games on one disk... does anyone still have that disk?

okay, sorry for probably stepping on lots of peoples toes here but can someone explain to me what is so good about Shadow of the Beast? Personally I think it's a crap game, very very boring.

You just run, press the button to kill a monster, run, press button, run, press button. You can climb for ages down a ladder into a well and when at the bottom not get of the ladder?!?

It has really nice gfx for it's time but that doesn't make it a good game to me.

*edit*
removed some stuff which had nothing to do with the thread :D
Slightly bored and severly confused..

There's nothing "good" about it now... but cast you mind back to 1989 when the best game I had played was a black and white text adventure on my ZX81...

Shadow of the beast was an excellent game..and I still like playing it!

As for climbing age into a well...what was the point? You dont need to go down there...thats the way out of that tree area..

The thing is with Shadow Of The Beast is that graphically it was amazing but the gameplay is pretty dire infact.
