For me personally it's:
1st = Rygar [AGA]
2nd = Reshoot R [AGA]
3rd = Sinbad and the Throne of the Falcon [Atari ST conversion]
...pity you can only select one in the poll and not 1st / 2nd / 3rd.

I will probably release a new game by the end of the year, because I have made at least one Amiga game per year since I begun coding for it.

I am pretty sure it won't be a contender on this poll, as none of the Amiga games I ever released took more than a month to develop, but whatever

(I'm still working on Quasarius Rush though, if anyone still remembers it).

I really have to try all those games. I played River Raid reloaded last week, it was pretty fun. It was the only game on that list that I've actually played, but I am pretty sure half of those games wont work on my vanilla A600.

Shatterhand; I remember you said that in order to play Rygar you would need to emulate.

...not a big deal; emulation is not a dirty word

All games don't need to be played on a "real" Amiga to be enjoyed (in fact, it really makes no difference these days with how advanced WinUAE is)

What?

I thought it was released two week or so ago? If not, then it's being removed from the poll

...otherwise, I would have added other games that should be released this year like: Scourge of the Underkind

MY RELIGION IS AGAINST EMULATION, IT'S EITHER REAL HARDWARE OR DAMNATION IN HELL.

Ahem.



I use Winuae to test code written for Amiga in a PC. Other than that, I may test one game or another sometimes, I'll probably take a look at Rygar at some point (Because, damn it, it looks *damn* good). But for regular playing, I really cant bother to use my PC too much... configure control pads, organizing folders, updating drivers, configuring Winuae, all that stuff... it takes a lot of the fun away for me. I use my PC for regular working (most of my work nowadays is done from my home), so sharing it with my fun times sometimes feels like a hassle.

But I admit I play a lot of Rainbow Six: Siege on it, but its no emulation SO MY SOUL IS SAFE FROM ETERNAL SUFFERING.

Hard choice
My vote will go for Landfill since I play it most. Simple and addictive game.
Second place go for Pong 4K, another "simple" game that can be played in spare time, with great music.
Third place is for Bridge Strike, it was fun too, bit hard, but love that Koyot pixel art graphics.
Fourth place is for both Rygar and Reshoot R. I wish I could have more time to play them.
Fifth place is for Kiwi Tale, cute game I definitely do not play long enough.
Sixth place would be for Zerosphere, it is just small upgrade of old one version.

What's with Black Dawn Rebirth? Is someone played in this game to vote on it?

Sorry, something's not right here...

I would like to vote for Starquake just because I did the intro graphics, but the promised optimised v1.2 was never delivered by Galahad. Also Starquake was released 2018. The same with Kiwi's Tale, Pong4K and Heroes of Gorluth. Black Dawn Rebirth will be released in December and probably the same with Metro Siege. I think this thread should be closed, because it is just preliminary.
