Super Sprint and Oids for Amiga / ST Emulator

A few ST games were never released on Amiga, notably these two. Also, it turns out there are loads of ST emulators for Amiga that I sort of suspected but didn't know existed, even though I had tried a Spectrum and PC/DOS emulator back in the day.

So, for no reason other than in case someone else also happened to miss it, here's Meynaf's site that has these games and a generic search link.

Good initiative and yes, certainly when it comes to ports.

Before Amiga, hits got ports across all the hot platforms. Some 16-bit devs defaulted to port from ST to Amiga (and this gave games that didn't use the hardware fully) and a few made hits I enjoy. The non-hits may have found a fan in a dev and would then get a version or other on Amiga. Sometimes PD, sometimes professional like on 8-bit.

These two were big hits on ST that were never ported to Amiga by studio, fan dev, or PD coder. I never had them. I suppose that's why I looked them up.
