Best Amiga game title

Ok, kind of a silly thread, but there's a bunch of games that I know I haven't played, and that even don't know what they are about if I don't go chek on HOL, but whose titles have struck me for years, and sometimes they occur to me out of the blue, because they just feel great.

So, what's your favorite Amiga game title?

Mine is, at least now, Leavin' Teramis

Never played it I think, but woah, how cool does that sound?

'Purple Saturn day'. Sounds like a prog rock band!

I've always loved the idea of a weapon called a Deathbringer, so Empire's game Deathbringer has to get a mention. Another one I remember was ITS Cricket, actually short for International Test Series Cricket, but at the time I thought it was "It's cricket", in the manner of Geoffrey Boycott.

Fury of the Furries
Eliminator (from Hewson), simple yet effective title!

My brother used to love playing Who Dare Wins
and I think the title rocks, not an Amiga game though.

Escape From The Planet Of The Robot Monsters

Also maybe the longest title

Eye Of The Storm is also nice.

Leather Goddesses of Phobos.

Unfortunately the sequel never made it to the Amiga:
Leather Goddesses of Phobos 2: Gas Pump Girls Meet the Pulsating Inconvenience from Planet X!

P.P. Hammer And His Pneumatic Weapon. Also one of the most original game concepts...
