AMIGA RPG's
« on: December 10, 2002, 08:11:17 AM »
 Guess I'll start another list:
 What are some of the Amiga RPG's out there, of course I am aware of King's Quest, Space Quest, Monkey Island and the like, but weren't there some other Zelda or Dragon Warrior/Final Fantasy style RPG's out there as well?

There were a lot of them, like Eye of the Beholder and Ishar series for example. They are no match for [color=FFFF00]ADOM[/color] though ;)

Speris Legacy was a nice one if you like the
older Zelda games.

Wasted Dreams is the best ever RPG game for Amiga. It also supports 2 players. All is animated and is really fun to play. One of Vulcans best made games.

Hmmm, most titles you mention there are not RPGs, but Adventures...

I do not know about Final Fantasy Style RPGs, but some of the best (Western-Style) RPGs
on the Amiga are:

- Ambermoon
- Amberstar
- Eye of the Beholder series
- Dungeonmaster/Chaos strikes Back
- Legend of Faerghail (did you know that Olaf Barthel had developed this one ? :) )
- Ultima 4-6
- Pool of Radiance and some other SSI RPGs

Ah, Ambermoon. One of the best ever. Too bad I never got
Amberstar to work on the A4000.
 
Still, Dungeon Master is one of the all time best "first person games"
(Chaos Strikes back was too difficult to map
in my opinion). The custom magic/experience system is
excellent, not like the AD&D level crap. Followed closely by
Black Crypt which was a lot more technically advanced but
lacked some of the DM feel.

 Eye of the Beholder 1&2 (number 2 in particular) and
Dungeon Master 2 were also excellent in their way, but not
 even near the leading pack.
 
I don't know if Hired Guns can be classified as a RPG
(probably not), but you sure learn to know your characters
through the long campaign at it involves plenty of strategy
and inventory-planning similar to RPG:s.

 Awsome, this list will help a lot! Thankx for all the input.


 As for Final Fantasy 2 and 3 in the states...


 Actually 2 was Japan's 4, and 3 was the Japanese Children's version of 6. The real part 2 looked and played exactly like part 1, except that it took about 3 months to beat, as apposed to a few days, and the story was really plain, and the game went on and on and on with no real reason what so ever. Part 3 was  totally different for the Final Fantasy series at that point, in that the quests, stories, look, and whole lay out of the game in general was nothing compared to the 1st two of the series, as well as the games to come afterwards.

 As for the American 3, you can play it in full with added movie sceens on the Sony Playstation now, or else you can get a SNES rom of the japanese part 6, and patch it to run in English, though for some reason the latest patch locks up my game during the beginning cinemas. :/


 Too bad Amiga never had RPG Maker 2k...

Well here are my favorites and I do not think anyone else mentioned my #1.

1)  Black Crypt by Raven (who went on to do so many  other games for the PC)  EHB mode.  :)

2)  Pool of Radiance - Simple Charming and very addicting.

3)  Bard's Tale (Actually it is kinda my #1) - Heck it inspired my bbs (down for now.)  :-o

4)  Ambermoon

5) Eye of the Beholder

6) Ishar 3

Ok, well that is my 2 bits...
 :-D

you mentioned games like Monkey Island before, and that's an adventure game I know, but if you like that, then you should know that Simon the Sorcerer II is a game, quite newly released for the Amiga, that is a blast to play.

Btw, anyone into Interactive Fiction here? (textbased games... you know, Infocom stuff..  :-D)

Yes, I tried the playstation version.
They ruined it!

Loading time during fights.
Even changed the way it goes into a fight.

I hated it.

The only good version I know of is SNES version.
Maybe the superfacmicon.
Probably the same thing.

If it works in Frotz, I'm game. Or something: some interesting non-game stuff's out there. Check it out.
The Amiga engine (port) works, which equals that Amiga is #1 for this stuff. For me anyway.

I liked Downtown Tokyo. Present Day for instance. Infocom stuff seems pretty tough actually, but maybe it's a cultural thing.
