I would love to see an Amiga version of Castles of Dr Creep. That puzzle game was awesome on the C64. I read somewhere that the creator Ed Hobbs lost the source code which would make it impossible to recreate or port. An AGA version of the original with even more rooms would be cool!

Stunt Car Racer - update of that would be fun, but its kind has been done with Track Mania


So many people say that, and honestly, I couldn't disagree more.  The two games have nothing in common besides driving on roller-coaster like tracks.

TrackMania is a simple human vs. track game.  And the tracks just aren't interesting enough to make that fly.  Sure, you can race your ghost or your friend's ghost, but really, at its heart, it's just a time trial game over increasingly annoying terrain.  If I'm going to play a time trial game, give me Richard Burns Rally.  At least those cars are fun to drive, and the stages are challenging without being annoying.  

Stunt Track Racer (or Stunt Car Racer in some regions) was human vs. human taking place on the track.  There's bumping, damage, passing and blocking.  At it's heart was a great arcade racer.  The closest thing I can think of in spirit is the multi-player race mode in Flatout (the first one, not 2, not Ultimate Carnage or any of the other ones, but the original).  Sure, it's a completely different game in looks, but it has the same human vs. human(s) driving element, taking part in a challenging landscape.  

Anyhow, I digress.  I'm one of the geeks that would like to see a modern Stunt Track (or Car) Racer.

Hi,

I would go for the first two games that I bought for the Amiga,

Arctic Fox and Skyfox both by Electronic Farts.

Arctic Fox was one of the few games that I could beat on the Amiga.

Also I would like to see a remake of the spreadsheet VIP professional.

I did a ton of work with this program making databases, checkbook programs, and tracking programs by using macros, quite fun really.

I have no idea what your talking about, so here is a doggy with a small pancake on his head.

MorphOS is a MAC done a little better

F/A-18 was continued out through a series of at least four more games on the PC, each getting more and more arcade-y at every release.  Falcon FTW! (And Gunship, Gunship 2000 - the list goes on and on!).

Hired Guns was in the works years ago as - oh, noes! - an FPS using the Unreal engine (or maybe Unreal Tournament; it's been a long time and the project is dead, so I really can't recall).

Never cared for those little jumper/shooter sidescroller games that seemed so popular.  Bleaugh.  I wanted games that pushed my Amiga to the limit, not demanded I boot in PAL mode on an unexpanded A500 or A1200.

With that said, inasmuch as it was frustrating as all get out I'd like to see a remake of The Immortal.  Good action adventure game with fantasy RPG touches!

It's also a shame that the FRUA (Forgotten Realms Unlimited Adventures) mod community wasn't based on the Amiga.  You could still be playing all the classic AD&D modules today, and update the graphics to your own personal tastes.
Back away from the EU-SSR!

So some sort of ISO openGL game engine that can do updated versions of games like Cannon Fodder, Hero Quest and games like it?
or a nice platform engine?

I've got bits and pieces lying around (art, small code sections) from wanting more Hired Guns since the first demo landed.  Pretty sure I still have the map editor somewhere...

@ TNovosel: Come on, it wasn't such a great game :) At least the Amiga version...

Yes, Faery Tale Adventure was amazing and had some kind of magic in it.
I already started an attempt to do something similar


I look forward to it...
