The greatest mini-games in Amiga games

I would like you to list all your favorite Amiga mini-games.

Here are some: (Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Heimdall, Project X, Shadow of the Beast 3, onEscapee)


Some others are the ones in Robocop 2, the duck game in one of the Lotus Turbo games etc...

Then we have the games which consists of nothing but mini-games, like those sport(sports?) ones, like Winter Games.

What type of mini-game would you like to play? It will be in Flash of course using highscores so people can compete.

I know we are not allowed to link directly to the pictures on HoL, so I did it this way instead. I could have chosen the Lemon Amiga ones instead, but thought this would be nicer as these has the stamp in them (except the T2 face one, took it from Lemon as HoL only had the other version which is ugly)

The 'circuit board' puzzle game in Paradroid 90.
this game is so hard its rinsed my sanity for 20yrs
you can turn the puzzle off and play it as an easier game as shump only
but that defeats the whole object of it

Wiz n' Liz is awash with mini-games
who can forget 'Intex Entertainment' from Alien Breed
Defender of the Crown is pretty much a series of mini games
And the slightly less obvious flying shooter game in Zool

I consider the flying sequences of Turrican 2 to be three mini games in themselves. Especially the third fast-flying sequence can be quite intense

Even though the game itself is mediocre at best, I do enjoy all the bits and pieces that make up universal warrior like the manual repair sequence. Bioshock's hacking system reminded me of it actually

I used to enjoy the word changing game in 'RANARAMA'. But then I'm a bit simple

worst mini game: Remember the way out before the level explodes and you lose all your lives....'Alien breed'

Some nice mini-games has been listed.

What do you think would be fun to play and compete in for most people? Could be a made up game, like Shadow of the Bounce on the Recorded Amiga Games site.

Tell me some mini-game ideas you think would be great (remember, no huge games with tons of levels, this is for mini-games where people quickly can do their best and post their score, so the playing doesn't last forever). An example could be:

The Chaos Engine meets Dogs of War and it takes place on two screen wide and two screen high stage/map where tons of enemies runs at you and you need to survive for as long as you can. The enemies could drop weapon power-ups and stuff.

Nothing so far that seems interesting to Ironclaw... we need a new Flash game so I tried to help him with ideas by making this thread.

One he seems a bit interested in is:

I seem to recall there was some space invaders game in the Burger Bar (or something like that) of Space Quest IV.

Also what you call a mini game in Project X is only just another level which was added to create some sort of "variety" (it's stolen from Aero Blasters actually).

There was some ad game for Royal Mail afair. Many mini-games, but I can only think of Snakes and Ladders. Does anybody remember the name?

some ideas for flash mini games:
- Dyna Blaster clone with Alien Breed graphics
- new single screen levels with graphics from Flood but without action elements, just puzzle
