This is absolute crap, plenty of good games came out. ROTR being good is the funniest thing I've ever heard!

Two of my all-time fav amiga games were from '89 - Battle Chess and North & South. :) ...Shufflepuck Cafe and Stunt Car Racer also rocked.

Dynamite Dux, Rainbow Islands and the Ninja Warriors were pretty solid arcade conversions from 89 which I also really enjoyed.

Good times

Stunt Car Racer
Rick Dangerouse
Blood Money
North & South (great 2 player memories on that one)

for actual time spent playing it must be -
North&South - yeh, I remember playing this 2 player with my bro for hours.
still a good giggle today too

Minuous is on cloud cuckoo land. Rise of the Robots and Primal Rage are dogshit :D

My votes go to...

1988 - Sidewinder
1989 - Rainbow Islands

I didnt have an amiga in these years, so Im not biased my memories of better times. Probably only 2 games ive played from 88. Played a couple from 89 when i was in primary school (Sim City and Carmen San Diego). I spose all those crap games eventually lea to some decent stuff down the line.

88 - IK+
89 - Xenon2

spyros_s 12 April 2011 11:36

88: ik+ of course! I still play sometimes and i always win black belt! :)
89: Batman the movie! The batmania was so big this year so when the game was released i played it in every format available(zx spectrum and cpc that days...amiga a little time later)! I loved that game!

Obliterator 26 April 2011 19:54

I cant do just one i had loads in 88-89 like Insanity Fight, Future Tank ,Mouse Trap and IK+ but i must say i played Obliterator to death

Dastardly 26 April 2011 20:46

Rainbow Islands.

tuki_cat 26 April 2011 23:50

88' - Hostages
89' - Elite

When I'm not playing the above two games I am nearly always playing Rise of the Robots ;)

Giana Sisters

Test Drive II

Oh what I lost hours and days in these games. :D :nuts


Graham Humphrey 27 April 2011 12:35

Funny but I always thought Rainbow Islands was released in 1990?

TCD 27 April 2011 12:38

Some reviews are from 1989 : http://hol.abime.net/1191/review
It's also on the box (original arcade is from 1987).

Retro-Nerd 27 April 2011 12:45

Mmh, probably not released before January/February 1990.

humble worm 27 April 2011 13:15

1988 - Wizball. Now I know that first it was made for 8 bit machines but cannot recall any 'typical' Amiga game released in 88 I liked

1989 - North and South, TwinWorld

years 90 & 91 were the shit! :)

onkelarie 27 April 2011 14:08

It does say 1989 on HOL, so that's what I've always assumed myself.

Great Giana Sisters,

Stunt Car racer, I ran a 60 foot cable between mine and my mate next door but 1 so we could play against each other, good fun :)

There were a lot of good games in those 2 years, sometimes it was hard to actually decide what to play as i couldn't make up my mind half the time while flipping through the disc caddy
