3D Starstrike(s) were indeed stunning, but also not Argonaut. Realtime did them. Much later the two companies ended up crossing paths, I think via Rainbird, but the Starstrikes were very much done in-house at Realtime.

No one mentioned Embryo.

It was released around 1994 or 1995, not sure, from Black Legend, I never see people talking about this game.

It's a futurustic Flight sim or something like that, but it feels very arcadey.... I've played for the last time a long time ago. I remember it was incredibly fun to play and it was blimey fast and smooth! I played it on my Vanilla A600 back at the time and remember being very surprised with a 3D flying game on Amiga being so fast and smooth, I was more impressed with it than with Epic (which was an awesome game too, but unfortunately needed the numpad lacking in the A600)

I've checked the Wildcat demo on a WinUAE cycle-exact A500 speed config and it does seem to run at roughly the same rate as the video posted on YouTube. It definitely does not run at 25Hz (let alone 50Hz), but it is really rather impressive nonetheless.

Never heard of this.. Which is strange because I was an Elite, EPIC nut. I even bought Inferno on PC CD when it came out (what a stinker that was..). Now I need to research this game.
