The Final Gate was the worst P.O.S. i ever played on the Amiga CD32.  I'd rather gouge my eyes out, pour vinegar in them and be forced to play Akira all night than play that junk again.

Well i'd like to add EA's "One on One" Dr J and Larry Bird. What a piece of sh8t. The c64 version is way cooler looking and better music. How lame

Oh and same thing with Airborne Ranger. I mean how can a c64 version get crappier going to amiga??

Crappy early Amiga Title Ports:
Electronic Arts - Adventure Construction Set
Epyx -Rogue (Compare the Graphics of the ST Port against the Amiga Port)
SSI - Demon's Winter (Looks Like they used IBM Graphics)
Activision - Hacker, Portal, Little Computer People

Couldn't agree more! Throughout its history, the Amiga was seriously gypped that way. Between horseshit AtariST ports and clunky looking IBM DOS ports - what in the F#CK were they thinking?

I've never played Wing Commander on the CD32, but I can just imagine how clunky and slow that translation is.  :angry:


I think it speaks volumes to the whole conversion theory that Wing Commander for the Amiga...

A: Ran in 16 colors in menu/on-ship areas
B: ACTUALLY HAD the menu for selecting the Secret Missions disk - it functioned, if you click on it, it waits for you to insert the (nonexistent, never created) Secret Missions disk
C: Actually works and runs well on 030 machines.  Try it on an 030 equipped AGA machine, it's lovely.  For that matter, if you can get the CD32 version it runs in 256 colors.

Pisses me off it does.
Back away from the EU-SSR!

Amiga Last Ninja2 was pretty bad. Straight port from the already crappy ST version.

LN3 was ok-ish, and not a straight ST port, but still not as good as LN3 for c64. Remix was the only Amiga LN game that retains the feel of the c64 and other 8bit versions.
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.

The Sierra games I had in mind were already VGA games -256 colours. Our AGA machines would have had no problem handling these. But then It would have to be harddrive-only. Not many games were, I only recall Willy Beamish (quite a decent PC port) and a few later games.

Rise of the robots was crap on all platforms, so I guess that doesnt count :)

they are quite protective over the game too, when we put the music online. I guess people will have to manage without it. hard luck.

Ah, how could I forget Inertia Drive

I remember the 1st time I tried it out on a compilation disc. I had friends with me at the time and they accused me of having made it with S.E.U.C.K  :)

The one game that I always used to use as an example of a ridiculously unplayable game was Obliterator. The guy in the game was totally sluggish and unresponsive and you had to use the row of big onscreen icons to control him. It's easy to run into walls or end up facing the wrong way or perform some other stupid action. You have no chance unless you rehearse the action over and over again. I haven't played it in years but the memories remain.

I dont really agree.. Technically it was quite impressive, and although the graphics dont fit together at all, they are quite large and colourful.
 
Same goes for Baby Jo. Although I never played the game, at least in the visual department its not bad at all.

One Christmas I asked Santa for Amiga games. He gave me "Days of Thunder","Slackskin and Flint" and "Custodian".
That was the worst Christmas ever.
