THE worst Amiga games?
« on: February 24, 2003, 11:24:12 AM »
Hello

What do you think are THE very worst games for the Amiga? I mean commercial stuff. If we went into PD stuff we`d endup with THE biggest thread ever. :-)

Though I haven`t played it much (for obvious reasons), I`d say The Addams Family. This has to be the worst excuss for a game ever made. I have it boxed and everything. It came with a few other games when i bought a load of Amiga stuff for £20. No graphics, no apparent playability and no point.

I didn't think it was physically possible to create a "bad" game on Amiga. Just the mere fact that it runs on Amiga raises its appeal 100 fold over anything else on any other platform. This is a well known phenomenon among avid Amigans worldwide and is aptly referred to as the Jay Miner constant! :-D

hehe j/k

PS: I even remember playing PONG for hours within that Alienbreed game. Truly awe inspiring!!! lol!

Sorry I can't even think of one, this will be a short thread indeed methinks...hehe.  :-D

Captain Planet.

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

BTW: Anyone here ever manage to finish Harlequin? This has to be one of the hardest games ever.

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

I don't think I could disgaree with you any more about The Addams Family. It's brilliant! I think it's the closest we ever got to a Mario beater on the Amiga and was head-and-shoulders above many other over-rated platformers (Zool, James Pond). Each to their own I guess.

As for the worst game ever on the Amiga, well... Days of Thunder was pretty awful. And Back to the Future 2. Both movie licenses as well - hmmm...

Edd the Duck has got to be the worst game the Amiga has ever seen.

I think in my oppinion the worst game was Terminator II (Ocean)... no playability, no fun and so freaking hard (I think I never made it to level 3) ...but I had a cool bit of digitalized movie in it... but definitely  not worth the $$$...

Also I think the worst games where the licenced movie games (mainly produced by Ocean  :-x )...

In terms of sheer hype, bloody awful gameplay and disappointment, my suggestion is:

Rise of the Robots

Countless features and WIP in magazines and it turned out to be a BOS!

Death Mask
Billed as a doom clone, but you could only move in jerky increments (not like doom at all) and the gameplay sucked.  But the guy who coded it (Rombust / Nerve Axis) is a really nice guy so I can't be too harsh about it, plus he also wrote Super Methane Bros which was a fun game.

hah...
the worst for me is Tales from Heaven,
altho the gfx where ok (till the titlepicture everything was damn cool), but the playablity was totally crap...
more worse was that i actually brought it..
how stupid of me....
darkage should do more demos, than games ;)
that doesnt mean i disrespect the darkage crew now....

i agree with the fact that gloom 3 was also a bad game, totally unprofessional textures&design, "5year old pd-game alike" sounds, and no challengeing gameplay..
