Far too many. I have about a thousand I'd select.
Amiga games are the greatest ever.

For me....

It has to be Shadow of the Beast.

Technically, it was a groundbreaking game in its day, and I still think it looks good today.

Compare a lot of the early Playstation stuff with later games, and they don't hold the attention so well.

Its ironic. Either SOTB is a testament to Reflections and Psygnosis's skill at developing software, or an indicament that few others managed to match Beasts technical ability in such jaw dropping fashion.

Lionheart.

very clever effects and colour used in that game. very nice graphical style, smooth animation, fantastic stuff for an OCS/ECS game

Yeah Lionheart was pretty special for an OCS game. I thought Ruff'n'Tumble looked great for an ocs game too.

Super Stardust looked awesome.

And Tearaway Thomas get's it for the best looking character ever.

Watching that little dog(?) jump about like a loony is graphical heaven.

hehe I love Tearaway Thomas also but it's too fast!

Any amiga game with a copper-fade background does it for me (me loves copper-fades!) ^_^

Thumbs up

Obviously the later AGA games have very good graphics but the OCS game I'd choose which really stands out is Elfmania which has truly exceptional graphics with such a limited colour palette.

I agree with almost you said, it's a pity the enemies sprites looks so "dull" when compared with the main sprite or the background.
A good choice, however my vote goes to Rattus... erm... Lionheart.

That's true, I agree. I also think the same applies to Agony, the owl looks superb it's just that the enemies look bland and unconvincing. *ducks any thrown objects*

Lionheart? I never understood what people find in that game. The graphics are so.... ugly!

As for good graphics, add all games by Cinemaware to the list.

Lionheart was great. It had nice backdrops, excellent scrolling, sprites with many FPS etc.


Super stardust was also great but a bit static.

My vote though goes to :

OnEscapee
http://hol.abime.net/?id=2305

This is a hell of a game with excellent graphics, sound and playability. It was one of the games that made me think how great the Amiga is....

As for Lionheart, look at the tree on the right of this screenshot:

One straight line upwards. "Great".

All you see in this game is only a "straight line designed" tree?

What about the 15 levels parallax scrolling?
The coppered background?
The multiple palette used (600 colours simultaneously)?
And all at 50 Hz!

Congratulations!
