Amiga Less Games Type Available

What are the less available games genre on Amiga? Beside Doom clones, of course...

I would say adventure games, but probably because I cannot get enough of them.

(decent) Beat'em'ups would come at second place for me.

Definitely beat em ups (not 1 VS 1, but scrolling).
Except Golden Axe, that, imho, was mediocre even as arcade version, there's not really any other AAA beat em up.
Too bad Psygnosis, Team 17, or some other team didn't created any of it, in the past.

Luckily, upcoming Metro Siege beat em up, should improve things, and we will finally have Capcom style beat em up, on the OCS Amiga's!
Every other genres are pretty good populated imho. There's a lot's of strategies, adventures, shooters. sports games, manager games, million platformers... etc.

Strip Mahjong. To the best of my knowledge, not a single strip mahjong game was ever released for the Amiga. Which is a shame, the Amiga could've done a really good version of Super Real Mahjong or Suchie Pai.
