Your Top 5 Best Looking Amiga Games

Yeah yeah another 'top blah blah' list.

What do you rate as your top 5 most graphically impressive Amiga games. 'Experts' always bang on about how graphics don't really matter and that it's gameplay what's really important. This is mostly true, but graphics do matter and some quality placed pixels (vectors) go a long way.

Heres mine.

1. Gods - Stunningly realised visuals from Mr Coleman.
2. The Chaos Engine - Steampunk+Dan Malone= 8)
3. Ruff n' Tumble - Beautiful showcase for the Amiga.
4. Lemmings - So much personality from so few pixels!
5. Heimdall - Gorgeous isometric stuff from Jerr OCarroll.

I have to tell you, that you have a mild list fetish Dast

Okay, my top 5 in alphabetical order (Turrican 2 being of course 1st )

Gods - what Dast said
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis - Not AGA, but it looks damn nice
Lionheart - Not my favourite game of the sort, but for non-AGA it's really impressive
Shadow of the Beast (2/3) - Still like the style
Turrican 2 - Just because No really, great graphics

Is that the fiery lava level? If so, that is a very good looking level. I even made it to level 4 once and I suck at shmups!

Nope, it's the 'water' level. Project X has nice graphics, but you can see how they 'themed' the levels to match the colours

Actually, some of the graphics I've seen in Superfrog are very well done. As I said elsewhere..."you can polish a turd"

I'm sorry... I had a look at HOL and it's messed up and I couldn't remember it myself and... you know... I'm getting old

Something always bugged me about Lionheart's graphics and I've just realised that Nieborg's backgrounds are gorgeous, but his sprites are horrible!

I liked them. Although the main character (who reportedly looks similar to Henk himself) is... erm... well you know.... a bit CAMP looking when he moves

Can't make an order out of these

Flashback - beautiful and believable worlds with stunning animation

Transarctica - again just the most amazing atmosphere from such amazing artwork

B17 Flying Fortress - the statics are all all so lovingly created and gorgeous with the 3d world itself one of the most convincing on Amiga

Lionheart - a crime not to put this in as it's technically fantastic and drawn so incredibly well

King of Chicago - possibly an odd choice but it's one of the finest example of style on Amiga adding to the whole experience i think


I'd like to put at least one for Dan Malone's here as he made my time in Chaos Engine a glorious one and he does such fantastic art, but iv'e run out of room

I think super stardust has some quite amazing graphics technically but they don't look to be drawn(well the ships at least) which i do find to be always more impressive here

Probably my choices are more arty but i do like beautifully realised work more than anything
