The Amiga versions of Double Dragon were really, really bad. Made a Vic20 blush

I was never ever able to play that game, it just crashed my a500, though i had the orginal disk  :-)

I cant recall the name of the worst amiga game i ever played... All i can remember is:
It had a gorilla throwing some  bananas or something, some stupid waterfall ...... This was one of the few orginal games i actually bought, it was damn boring and had loads of gfx glitches on my a500. No wonder why i had most pirated games ;(

One of the worst games in my opinion was Deathmask - I'm sure I've mentioned this before.

TKG was great IMHO. However it was universally slammed for its speed, which I can sympathise with.
However, you have to look at it in the light of the fact that Andy Clithero was working pretty much single handed on the engine and under pressure to get it out as quickly as possible.

Still, it ran fine on 040 in 2/3 screen, even better with the tkgturbo patch, and it actually was quite smooth on my friends CS MK3 (060@66MHz)... Mind you, clickboom's quake port was even faster on his system than TKG itself :lol:

From the gameplay POV, the thing I really hated was the stockpiling of ammo/health. They should have left it as it was in AB3D1, perhaps with a difficulty setting that sets the cap for ammo/health.

Hmmm,

I think a very bad game for the Amiga was...

Sim City 2000

Nice game n all, but ugh, ran terribly on my 68030/50mhz!  :-(

There are a couple of Amiga games on this list that haven't got the best ratings around.  ;-)

The worst games ever?

But then most people only tend to give ratings to the best games they've played so a lot of the really bad games haven't been rated yet.

Oceans movie licenses, except perhaps Robocop 1.

Oh, and the pinball game that came with the Amiga Magic pack. Boy, does that suck! They should have thrown in Slam Tilt instead.

you're talking about disk swapping?  :-P  

dark seed was a FANTASTIC game, if you had a hard drive  :-D  otherwise it deserves to go on this list, cause who has 6 disk drives ?  :-P

Lots of games released between 1996-97 were very poor, sadly. Except for some Doom games. And a few others.

Valhalla was one which you either loved or hated. I hated it. It was so dull I couldn't play it.

Catch 'em back in 1992 was horrid as well. Only played the demo of it, but at the time it got 25% in The One Amiga, about 40% lower than what they considered to be a poor game.

But let's not forget Kick Off '96. What exactly was the reviewer in CU Amiga magazine thinking when he gave an unplayable (litreally) game 79%? A score 69% higher than Amiga Format's and Amiga Power's scores put together, stats fans.

Reality games were usually sub-standard as well (Backbone was the better (simple, easy to use) game creator by far).

Dangerous streets. Mm. :-x

Worst game ever?

hmm, Captain Planet & The Planeteers for A500+. came with Comic Special Edition of A500+. And Lemmings was awful too.
"GAZZA" wasnt too brilliant.

I've been thinking about this thread a lot to come up with some of my worst games ever, and I've realized I haven't played many bad games on the Amiga, so here's my 3 games that were really bad due to some particular issue involved.  

Shadow of the Beast 2  (the most unplayable game I have ever seen, can anyone get more than 5 minutes into the game without God mode turned on?)

Maniac Mansion - I loved this game on C64, unfortunately, the amiga one looked like it was a rip of the nintendo port, colors were all messed up, and the music truly sucked.

My other is The Krystal - probably Cinemawares worst game, mind you, IIRC they only published it.  It was perfectly playable, it was just...bad.

I agree with the person who said Double Dragon was awful. I think Baal was bad. But it was an EARLY Amiga game so I'll cut it some slack.

Barbarian was bad (not the one with the headchopping action, the other one).
