Next game to port?

So hypothetically.... if I was to port another game to the Amiga after Rygar, what would you like to see?

Fixed your poll and added "Wonder Boy"; as mentioned here

...this is a really difficult choice for me; as "Shinobi" is my absolute favourite arcade game of all time; as mentioned in this thread: Shinobi Boss Level 5

Plus the Amiga version is sooooo awful

The problem is, from your poll all these would be awesome:
  • Shinobi
  • Wonder Boy
  • Rastan
  • Raiden
  • Raiden II
  • Nemesis / Gradius
  • Final Fight
  • Double Dragon
...but you're only one man and it would 10+ years to do them all

Which one would you take to the Desert Island then?

If you put it that way then you know my answer, it absolutely has to be Shinobi!!!

Couldn't help myself and voted Dragon Ninja
The others seem quite doable except Final Fight, I think that would be quite tough to have 100% arcade perfect without compromises but that would probably make it the most challenging

It would be totally awesome to have Amiga port of Psycho Soldier Athena.

do something restful after Rygar: Pacman. But make sure to use original A.I. for the ghosts, or it won't work.

Probably the most difficult game of the lot.

It's probably one of those games I would have to read historical books on.

Its a surprise I would very much like even when I had my 1200 I still longed for a SNES just to play FF, it looked amazing in C&VG when it was reviewed but since then I've discovered it's missing 2 of the characters etc.

I've never played Gauntlet on the Amiga( reaching level 117 on the rather excellent Amstrad CPC version burnt me out on it). I take it its an ST port with crap scrolling?

Yes, there is no "real" Gauntlet on the Amiga.

Hey Graeme,

Should I split these entries into 5 individual ones?
  • Final Fight or Double Dragon (Arcade)
  • Raiden I/II (Arcade) or Axelay (SNES)
i.e:
  • Axelay (SNES)
  • Double Dragon (Arcade)
  • Final Fight (Arcade)
  • Raiden (Arcade)
  • Raiden II (Arcade)

Wow... I followed that link and the cost of Gauntlet was £25 in 1990!

That in todays money is over £50...

I remember 1990 like it was yesterday. I need another holiday.

I voted for None - Do you own game.

I'd rather see new original content than ports....

With this being said..... that discussion about the ED-209 robot from Axelay was REALLY because you were thinking about porting Axelay to Amiga? I was going to ask you if thats what you had in mind, but then I thought you weren't crazy enough

Any of those games would have an A1200 020 14mz 2mb as a target machine? If depending upon the game you would aim for an A500 standard setup, this would change my vote. I have no AGA machine, so anything made for OCS/ECS without acellerators is nicer for me

Done

Whoever voted previously for "Raiden I/II (Arcade) or Axelay (SNES)"... did you want your vote for:
  • Axelay (SNES)
  • Raiden (Arcade)
  • Raiden II (Arcade)
...at the moment it's registered to "Raiden (Arcade)".

Ahh ok, didn't realise, I'll have to try it out(if I don't get flashbacks to playing it for 6-7 hours solid on the Cpc)
