Personally, I think the worst Amiga game ever created was by Amiga, Inc. and their "Amiga Anywhere" project.

Amiga Anywhere is *NOT* Amiga, it is an early Tao Intent. I think we can all agree on that.

I found that hilarious. It was like fighting monsters conceived by Terry Gilliam in one of his more obscure Python moments :)


Hehehe..

I remember playing that on the A500 after being told "it's just like doom!"

Only... It really wasn't.

Certainly that has to be in my top 10 gaming disappointments.

Now for worst game....

For me it'd have to be Akira...

Horrible graphics and controls that were obviously conceived by Beelzebub.

And to think it shared the name of the greatest Anime ever produced.

Also add Rise of the Robots and Cool World.

Biggest disappointment had to have been the way of the little dragon, olo fight and rise of the robots.  I know there's more that suck but i gotta think for a bit

Wow, how did I ever forget Rise of the Robots? Made all the worse by the hype.

I'd like to nominate HOI. Even with cheats it's still impossibly annoying.

I'll also put The Final Gate up for consideration - an FMV trainwreck for CD32. Similarly, Prey - An Alien Encouter is another one of those no-gameplay kind of games.

Akira and Rise of the Robots are definitely excellent candidates.

uh huh, some good candidates there.
i got suckered into the rise of the robots hype. i believe primal rage was either comming out or just out or something, and fighters where all the rage.
i'd just got a brand new CD32 and wanted a fighter. oh Rise sucked so bad. secretly  i hung my head in shame at it's pretty graphics and video cut scenes, but at the time, i was young and reckless and in my "Amiga beats all down, fool" phase, so on the outside, it was this kicks arse!
plus. never buy a movie tie-in, or a franchise deal. MacDonalds Land anyone?

Mine would be Dragon Ninja as they didnt program the game for a forward jump so once you got to level 2 where you had to jump over to the next platform you were f**ked. I think it got 1% in Amiga Format.

@morcar: i liked it, but as you say, it was impossible to play with joysticks with microswitches. But with a TAC-2 you could jump without problem.

i agree 100 on Rise of the Robots, but how could you say that about McDonaldland - It was one of my favourite games on my mate`s NES.

Microcosm was one of the worst games I've played on Amiga. The graphics were brilliant and the intro was incredibly fun in a B-movie Robocop-ish kind of way, but the game? Holy cr*p that was bad.

I haven't had a chance to try most of those games listed, but out of the ones I still have sitting around, "Turbo Outrun" and "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" were two stinkers that I couldn't play more than five minutes with, without giving up.  I also kinda have to agree with Hoi.  I played the AGA version, and although pretty to look at, it was annoying as hell to get through the levels with my limited platformer skill set.  Jump, miss, die.  Jump, miss, die.
