Which are your fav low budget games ?

I love low budget games. They habe often more fun than a full pricer.

Here are my top ones.

All DIZZY games of course. But my fav is of course FANTASY WORLD DIZZY.
http://hol.abime.net/?id=502
FANTASTIC DIZZY is aso brilliant. But the changed inventory system was totaly frustrating.

QUICK AND SILVA by AMIGA FUN. Yeeeah! I love nearly every single AMIGA FUN game man!!!! I`d bought em all back in the day. But QUICK & SILVA was outstanding. One of the colorfull platformes i have ever seen. And one of the best musics ad sounds by Chris Huelsbeck. PURE FUN !!!

METAL LAW. Another stunnin game by "THE NEW BITS ON THE RAM". The same team that brought us QUICK & SILVA. Great jump`n`schoot. Did someone realise that the logo of "THE NEW BITS ON THE RAM" looks very similar to the "BITMAP BROTHERS" label? MMMHHHHHH ???

APACHE FLIGHT was a bad codet SWIV clone. But i love it anyway. But i never reached the end of the first level without cheating.

So far so good.

Nop. It was released under the "AMIGA FUN" label. It was a monthly released disk mag here in germany. Was very cheap with 19.80 DM.

Here are some more excellent "AMIGA FUN" games:

LETHAL ZONE. One of my fav shoot em ups.
http://hol.abime.net/?id=880

THE FINAL DAY. Not so well codet. But great atmoosphere. But why is it MIA @ HOL???
http://hol.abime.net/?id=45

FUTURE SHOCK. Wooow ! Great CYBERNOID clone with one of the best AMIGA musics i have ever heard. SOEDESOFT kixx ass !!!.
http://hol.abime.net/?id=641

GAINFORCE. Great DEFENDER clone with brilliant sonix.
http://hol.abime.net/?id=2684

VYRUS. YEAH! This one brings back so great memories for me. I bought this issue of AF on an ice cold heavy snowing winter day in early 1991. This game was totaly thrilling. Also excellent musics from Michael Tschoegl.

apologies in hijacking this thread...but...

@plasmatron : do you still have your Amiga Fun's ?

I ask as I'm trying to work out what games came with which issue's etc and (unless it's well hiddden) there isn't exactly a lot of information out there on the internet regarding these mags.

So far I've only managed to get confirmed info for 2 of the UK mag issues and 6 of the German mags, with unconfirmed info for 2 more German issues.

The information I'm after is the issue number, the date & the disk content. Cover & disk scans of course are ideal, but whatever anyone has would be great

I second Qwak. Probably the best budget game ever.

I enjoyed Captain Dynamo a lot too, though it was a little too short.

Yes! Metal Law was fun. But you must check the first game of this cru.
QUICK & SILVA was outstanding.

Was SEUCK a budget release? I seem to remember it being one at the time I bought it.

If yes, then I say SEUCK.

I think the SEUCK package was released by Palace as a mid price product.

I think it was GBH that reissued SEUCK.

One that I really liked was Super Grand Prix by Codemasters - it was based on the C64 grand Prix Simulator game, but had lots more different vehicles and circuits. A really enat Super Sprint style game. Qwak was superb as well.

Universal Warrior is a surprisingly decent budget game.

I like Universal Warrior too.

Also a fan of some of the Dizzy games, but my all-time favourite budget games has to be Arcade Pool from Team 17. It was only a tenner at the time but has provided me with years of entertainment so can't argue with value for money there

Turrican II was re-released as a budget title - does that count?

If not, I would have to go with Qwak.

Sidewinder by Mastertronic was a great shooter and the explosion effects sounded particuarly good through the hifi at the time
