slightly off topic, is just a book about the best games or games with a interesting story about em, dont know what years these were but -
Great Giana Sisters - recalled called because it was a blatant mario bros rip off. Think this was about 1986
Worms - created in blitz basic for a compition in amiga format. much later than 86.
Rise of the robots- lauded as the next coming when the first screen shots appeared turned out to be one of the worst games of all time and a running joke. Much later than 86
Prince Of Persia - Noted for very early use of rotoscoping. Not sure of date.
