Hyperion's aborted Amiga port of Worms Armageddon

Are there many game franchises still alive and kicking that had their beginnings on the Amiga? The key ones I can think of are Worms, Lemmings and (arguably!) The Settlers.

It's definitely AGA. No chance of a "floppy based version with the music in it" considering the majority of the in-game music is CD audio, though.
