Atari ST exclusive games

http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...&game_search=1
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=3532
you need only Atari ST emulator, disk images (planetemu.net) and TOS image version 1.62
Alien Thing & Alien Blast need more than 1MB of virtual memory
I don't know why Alien Blast is little slow under emulator (STeem)


Edit1:
Exclusive Atari ST games that were never ported to the Amiga

We know that the Atari ST was physically hardware inferior to the Amiga, but there were still quite a few commercial Atari ST games that never saw an Amiga release. This has always interested me because, even though the Amiga is and probably always will be my favourite gaming platform, the ST and all other gaming platforms always have their own special and unique games to play.

So far from the old thread Atari ST games that outshone the Amiga we have a few exclusive ST games mentioned, plus I've collected together quite a few more.

The list I have so far is as following (with links to Atari Legend entries):
* = need to check there isn't an Amiga version
+ = available now on Amiga, but never officially released
# = ported from the ST to the Amiga by meynaf in 2012:
http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?p=797066#post797066


Are there any more anyone can think of?

They don't have to be exclusive to the Atari ST. Just not released on the Amiga. For example Star Trek was also released for DOS and the C64, but never on the Amiga.

I know that the early US ST released were mostly never ported, Early Activision, Ere Informatique, Hippo and Loricels games, Atari Corp games... will have to check the releases from those to see if there are any more that were not released on the Amiga.

Update: I've just found a load more listed on a few forums. I've updated the list above to include them. Quite a few for us all to try and enjoy via emulation.

A really good Alien Breed clone is Alien Swarm, a free mod for Unreal Tournament 2004. http://www.blackcatgames.com/alienswarm.html

They were working on an updated mod using the source engine, but I dont know how much progress they made with it.

The best bit about the mod is doing 4 player co-op!

I checked some games:
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...?game_id=5409# no music, collision detection with some unexpected glitches, basic & odd sounds, good gfx, main hero is little too slow
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=5042 nice Dizzy clone but jumping is horrible, you can hear music from Sanxion/Extirpator on title screen
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=3521 Montezuma's Revenge clone, very similar 8-bit playability, but it's good game with weird main hero
http://atarilegend.com/games/games_d...p?game_id=4082 you can name it Flood 2 bombs/grenades bounce & explode with similar effect

Hoog is very nice!,I never thought that the Atari ST would interest to me in its PD games.Its commercial games are all in Amiga except for some bad one.There were many users of Atari ST,the support of the users to the Atari ST is very nice!

http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=4927 it's only Hunchback/Quasimodo with better graphics (from Magic Pockets)
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...hp?game_id=975 brilliant little game with Amiga quality but why main hero is defenseless?
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=4491 & http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=3401 very nice Super Mario Bros clone, it should be Amiga game
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=3622 single screen pinball game, average
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=4035 second part of that pinball game, this time with scrolling playfield, not bad game but table is too empty
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=3765 it's totally different game than that from Amiga with same title, great graphics with characters made with "bobs" and good playability
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=5388 average controls, good graphics for free game
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=4485 look at screenshots, it's commercial game from 1990 Loderunner clone, but I don't know how to kill a monsters
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=5021 tiny sprites, sampled sounds, good playability, strange game hick-ups when you kill enemy
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=4057 extremely cheap Magic Pockets clone, avoid

and more:

http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=6303 weird controls, instead of jumping you can only float for how long you want, but you must stand on the ground to exit screen, good graphics, one object is from Amiga game Venus the Flytrap
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=2475 good graphics, basic sounds, jumping should be little better
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/gam...p?game_id=3953 choppy animation of sprites, nice gameplay, basic sounds, no music
