Great Amiga Game To Play

Im home sick from work (thanks DODGY DIM SIM) and I have a hankering to play an amiga classic I haven't played before.

Can anyone suggest a great game on the amiga? Ive played hundreds but I'm sure I've missed a few classics. Im mainly into stragegy/sim.

Some of my favourite miggy games (to give you an idea):

Powermonger
Civilization
Populous
Wings
Frontier

PS This thread might be in the wrong section, if so please move it

Thanks

Flashback ?
Megalomania ?
Cannon Fodder ?
The Settlers ?

I am recommending those ones based on the games you said you like. Or else I would have recommended stuff like Ruff 'n' Tumble or Uridium 2

Cool

Give Colonization a try. It's not quite as good as Civ but it's still an excellent Sid Meier game.

This time the game is more trade oriented because people complained that Civ was too "war" oriented with not enough trading. The end battle with the English or whichever country you choose is a right laugh. You need to build a nice big army to win your independance.

No need for references to PC games here - use the Hall Of Light!

Gobliiins
Gobliins 2: The Prince Buffoon
Goblins 3

May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out.
