These (and probably more) are NOT Amiga -> PC conversions they are Arcade conversions.

And some are 8-bit to PC conversions!

You can usually tell conversions

Amiga -> PC

The PC version sucked

PC -> Amiga

Both versions sucked!

The best PC -> Amiga conversions are the sort that got converted by Amiga fans after the original PC source code was opened up. Abuse, Doom and Quake all started on the PC and all rock just as hard on the Amiga!

I love Doom II on the PC the most though. Nothing beats a pixellated imp coming towards you at breakneck speed.

I should use "exist also on" instead of "conversion".

Flasback was pretty good in all versions, the best being PC.


I think the conversion was along the lines of

genesis / amiga

PC > Snes > 3dO > Sega CD

Flashback was best on Sega CD. It had that pre-rendered movie sequences, same as PC CD-Rom version. (and 3DO)

Pitty there were no decent joysticks to play it with and most PC users were using the keyboard to play this game...

True, any adventure/RGP game starting from monkey island or EOTB 1 using 256 color VGA, HD and a good midi rig. Amiga got some ok to good conversions (unlike the poor ST) but SSI art shines on PC. Just look at Kyrandia.

Oh and flashback 3 btw [ Show youtube player ] (don't you just love youtube)
