This is absolute crap, plenty of good games came out. ROTR being good is the funniest thing I've ever heard!

Two of my all-time fav amiga games were from '89 - Battle Chess and North & South. ...Shufflepuck Cafe and Stunt Car Racer also rocked.

Dynamite Dux, Rainbow Islands and the Ninja Warriors were pretty solid arcade conversions from 89 which I also really enjoyed.

Good times

I didnt have an amiga in these years, so Im not biased my memories of better times. Probably only 2 games ive played from 88. Played a couple from 89 when i was in primary school (Sim City and Carmen San Diego). I spose all those crap games eventually lea to some decent stuff down the line.

88 - IK+
89 - Xenon2

Some reviews are from 1989 : http://hol.abime.net/1191/review
It's also on the box (original arcade is from 1987).

1988 - Wizball. Now I know that first it was made for 8 bit machines but cannot recall any 'typical' Amiga game released in 88 I liked

1989 - North and South, TwinWorld

years 90 & 91 were the shit!

It does say 1989 on HOL, so that's what I've always assumed myself.

Great Giana Sisters,

Stunt Car racer, I ran a 60 foot cable between mine and my mate next door but 1 so we could play against each other, good fun

There were a lot of good games in those 2 years, sometimes it was hard to actually decide what to play as i couldn't make up my mind half the time while flipping through the disc caddy
