Great Games - That were not well known

I spend hours browsing through Hall of Light, trying to find games that I may of missied when I originally had an Amiga.

What games did/do you love that were never well known.

I still enjoy playing:

Ports of Call: Great trading sim
Battletech: Jap style RPG on Amiga
Kult: Wierd but great and an awesom soundtrack
Yo Joe!: Best platformer ever?

Yo! Joe! was an excellent game. Not to mention it's brilliant music.

Typhoon Thompson!

It has beautiful graphics and great animation, atmospheric music and sound effects and an anti-hero who doesn't really want to go!

Try playing it with a trackball if you've got one.

Yo Joe was good but very flat and I finished it in 2 days.

One of the games that was not very popular but was still a great game was Mean Streets. Excellent game, great variability in the gameplay, cool Bladerunner-esque atmosphere.

Yo! Joe is good, but hardly the best platform game ever.



Benefactor, that's a game that deserves to be more known..

Come on, it's not THAT easy


BTW: this may be turnin' into a one "Great game - that were not well known", but hey, 'Yo!Joe!' deserves it!
Had some REALLLLY nice time when playin' it back in the 1995 - and i still do

Yeah I missed you too Alky
Ok great subject! my choice is Lords of War.
It's a warlords (see Atari VCS) rehash. But it's got cool music and graphics and great solo action (for freindless guys like me)

Yo Joe? Very playable and fun - but - very easy too - i finished it after one day...

Benefactor - great game - but very well known in Poland .

Not popular gems?

Lionheart (one of my alltime favourite)
Fire and Brimstone (very difficult game - similar to ghosts'n goblins, wiyh many, many traps)
Lolly Pop (very good platformer - nice graphics and very good music)
Leander (for me its better than Beast 1 and 2 together )
Elf (Ocean) - very good music
Traps'n Treasures - graphics average - but gameplay - superb, plenty of weapons, enemies, - great game - one of the best adventure platformers.Try it!!
Cedric - good but not great mix of adventure and platformer.

Yes, I also finished Yo! Joe in a couple of days playing it, and without using continues ...

D/Generation is another underdog... I hardly see anyone talking about it, and it's a damn fine game....
