Top Banana.

I remember getting that on a coverdisk as a demo back in the day, even back then I was pretty much scratching my head and hating it. It wasn't so much how it played, it just seemed to have an aesthetic that was totally bang on for what I found irritating!!

Its parallax scrolling is very good, though.

Yes it is a shame that somebody tried so hard to make it look that bad.

Meh, I still think Yolanda is the worst piece of shite on the Amiga ever.

I couldn't even complete the first fucking level!

Top Banana features HAM6 in the opening sequence AND the gameplay, and you're DISSING it? There weren't enough HAM6 games coming out, I'm glad this did, and it's not that bad.

Come off it. Who cares what screen mode it uses, it's a piece of shit that's not worth playing.

Cliffhanger is really bad too, especially since it was released quite late.

I played through Top Banana for the HOL screenshots: http://hol.abime.net/1457/screenshot

The gameplay is fairly poor but not quite as bad as I had expected. It's quite like Rainbow Islands.

The primary problems are the bonkers graphics and rave theme.

Thinking about this game reminds me of a Harry Enfield sketch where he plays the role of 'The Yorkshireman' to troubleshoot the problems at bank or something, and part way through he says "I have two words for you, Shite! And shite!"

Aany game that has one of the sound effects from the Catchphrase TV gameshow is a winner in my book! Its a really weird, colourfully absurd game but not the worst out there. Its certainly not a great or good game either.

I played originally on the Amiga Format coverdisk demo, the first AF coverdisk I had which made it a surreal introduction to Amiga.
