From the tv serie?

Yes.
How they ever got the idea for 'Allo 'Allo approved still mystifies me. Quite possibly one of the worst british TV series' ever made.

One of the worst games I've played is Face-Off Ice Hockey by Krisalis.


I had a great time playing this one. :-)

I think the most played game ever must be Kick Off 2.

I didn't play ####ty games on my Amiga. I mostly used mine for making music. I don't think there was a day that OctaMED wasn't up on my 500, then my 2000 and finally my 3000. 2 years ago, when I decided to get back into the scene and bought a stock 1200, I still did nothing, but use OctaMED.

Now that I think of it....I wasn't to particular about Wrath of the Demon. Don't know why, but I just didn't like it.

LOL. Actually on the Fire Button site, the worst 5 games as voted by their visitors are:

1. Akira
2. Navy Moves
3. 'Allo 'Allo
4. Rise of The Robots
5. 4x4 Offroad Racing


Yeah, but most people have only voted for the best games they've played. So there are lots of crappy games without votes yet.

But I agree those sure are crappy games. I'm a proud owner of Allo Allo.  :-D

Got it for free though.  ;-)

Captain Planet.

Truly awful. IIRC, I formatted the disk pretty much straight away. Not the best choice for bundled software ever made.


I got captain planet with my A500 and for a long time couldn't afford any new games or software.  So I ended up playing it even though it was pish.  It was really hard, I don't think I beat it. But when you got in to it, it wasn't too bad. ;-)

It's not the worst game ever, but should be on the top 100 list at a modest position.

This may be controversial, but did anybody ever play Star Lord? That has to be my most disappointing
game. I remember going into a computer shop and buying a random game which looked OK. What a waste
of £10. Parts of it seemed to make no sense at all. Though the space strategy bit was OK. Not enough
to warrant £10 though. Microprose didn`t do them selves justice in my opinion.

Leather Goddesses of Phobos!

A text-based "adventure" port, it came with a flashy box, cardboard 3D glasses and comic book in 1986.

What a waste of $20 clams!

Hmm...  Lotta things listed here that I have to agree with as really bad. (Except for Face Off hockey - I had the C64 version, and liked it well enough, but never got a copy of the Amiga one that worked!)

Days of Thunder- At least this game gave me and my friends a hearty laugh as the gauges just randomly bounced around and the engine sample looped with a pop every half second, or so.  That, and we'd sneak up behind each other and scream "Cole, ya look like $hit out there!"  Still one of the worst racing games I've ever seen, though.

Some NOT mentioned:
Dangerous Streets - What kind of crackhead would package this game in a gamer kit???  It was about the worst street fighter clone I've ever had the misfortune of seeing.  Even the Amiga version of Mortal Kombat (back-back-forward-diagonal/down-forward-back-button to duplicate a simple 1 button move in the arcade) was better than this!!

Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure - Another trainwreck of licensing...  It was bad enough it was actually pretty funny, though.

The Amiga version of Scooby Doo left a lot to be desired, as well.  In fact, most licensed games had a high potential to suck.  Looking through my disk catalog in the section titled "Why the hell do I still have this?" more than half appear to be licensed titles.

Other noteworthy titles include what I think was supposed to be a platformer called "Fire and Brimstone" and, of course, the summer games knockoffs, like "Summer Olympiad".

I had this game for my Atari Lynx (which some sod stole from me) Was the Amiga version similar to the Lynx version? I totally loved the game! I really should be a PPC card so I can use the Lynx emulator.

I once downloade the Gloom 3 demo from aminet.  Now that's what I call crap...


I agree wholeheartedly.  After playing Gloom 2, I decided to buy Gloom 3.  Biggest waste of my money ever.  I should have kept playing Gloom 2 instead.
