Not sure if anyone mentioned this one, I just scanned the replies.  I love the classic game... Scorched Tanks.

Starflight

Other than perhaps The Urquan Masters, there has been no decent remake nor any decent space exploration games of this nature since.

I would love to chip in on the game development if you need another developer. Are these graphics for an Amiga version? Or some other platform.

There is source code for a similar game:  Frontal Assault.  Both are written in AmosPro however.  I've tried to rewrite Frontal Assault in C++ but keep running into shortcomings in modern graphics hardware:
  • No palette support exists therefore most of the color-cycling animations don't work.
  • Emulating a palette requires shaders to work properly, and AFAIK there are no next-gen Amigas with shader support.
  • Lastly, a shader with copper rainbow emulation wastes memory becuase it only uses 255 foreground colors and a high-color backdrop but OpenGL doesn't support 8-bit frame-buffers any more.
  • Most graphics cards only support texture sizes of up to 1024 pixels across.  This makes doing scrolling around on high-resolution screens difficult.

Too many to list from the oldies like North&South and some mentioned.

A Payback fix for the newer generation Amigas would be cool as it nearly works and so could be quite easy to do.

Loopz.  Could be the next Tetris.

BTW @JJ Re: "and it sucks balls" is that a good thing or a bad thing?  I think it depends on your position at the time.

I see a few people mentioned Fairy Tale adventure. I quite liked this back when it was released. Me and my brother were playing it at roughly the same time. Being that he was more single minded with his games than I was (I'm more inclined to play a few games off and on at the same time) he progressed more quickly than me and got maybe 3/4 of the way through it before I accidently overwrote his save games with my own.... he wasnt happy with me  :-)  There is a PC version that was released at a similar time, but was also a sequel made for PC only. It's amazing how few amiga specific games there are, even if some started life on the amiga.... 90% or more of the games people have mentioned here also had pc versions, some even updates/remakes and/or sequels.
Back on topic, most of what Id like has been mentioned already, but I'd really like a revamped Z-Out (well, any of the better Amiga 2d scrolling shooters, but that was one of my favs.).
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

Scorched Tanks is awesome. No need to do a remake. Worms is like an updated ST. Same thing with Lemmings... It's the game play, not the graphics that make those titles.

Street Rod. This would be way cool. Spent hours with that title. The racing part was lame, but the concept of the game was great. Other car titles eventually updated through game consoles.

A couple of aircraft titles that need to be remade/updated:
 
Mega Fortress ~ could only get it to run on an 1.3 A500

B-17 Flying Fortress ~ If anyone knows of a modern pc equivalent, please direct me to the flight deck.

I always thought Amiga car simulaters weren't as diverse as the flight sims and felt quite primitive. When I migrated to windoze, my computer gaming went mostly towards Playstation. Except for Tribes and Tribes2.

I vote for Faery Tale Adventure also.  My favorite game on the Amiga.
My wife loves the Valhalla games.
