There is an Amiga port of Ballblazer - and it's pretty damn good.
Masterblazer: http://hol.abime.net/2420 (screenshot is from the optional "race" part, not main game)

In the intro, there's even a fractal mountain flyby that looks like Rescue on Fractalus - which is what made me start this thread in the first place.

Anyway, my choices:

Choplifter, Karateka, and The Oregon Trail, on the Apple II

Gradius, Joust, Robotron, and lots of other arcade games that I can't remember at the moment.
For Choplifter, check out
Apocalypse: http://hol.abime.net/3282

For Robotron, check out
Llamatron: http://hol.abime.net/4970

(I did also say, "games that have never been converted/cloned/copied in any form". Yeah, llamas aren't robots... but close enough.)

I've got this:


SD card reader for Atari 8-bit. It's awesome. I copy disk images from Amiga to Atari. Game loading is fast (well, compared to floppy loading). I've even typed stuff on an Atari wordprocessor, saved it on SD, loaded it on Amiga, then sent it on the internet. (Why? - because I can, damn it!)
