This "Mighty!" thing is confusing and makes no sense. Just ask for some great platformers.That does the trick.
Anyway, give me Nicky Boum anyday.

Tearaway Thomas. All the speed you could ever want in a platform game

http://hol.abime.net/?id=1326

And I can't believe you didn't list giana sisters.

How's about putty? Too bad putty squad never made it out on the Amiga

http://hol.abime.net/?id=1181

How about globdule? Stranger of the bunch
http://hol.abime.net/?id=2735

And not to mention Morph. A good platform puzzle game

http://hol.abime.net/?id=2513

My personal favorite would have to be Globdule of that group.

Hehehe

Actually there's one thing I loved about Globdule's music driver ( I think that's what it was, correct me please): If you started hopping around mindlessly, the sound of the glob impacting the walls would go in rythm with the music! So I performed many "globdances"

Interesting, but I'm afraid the music driver was just the standard Protracker player. Just a nice piece of luck that your bouncing around happened in time with the music.

I was going to design some of the levels before I started the music. The level editor was on the Archimedes, so I got given one of them to play around with, but never actually got round to doing any (too much other work to do).

I enjoyed doing the music, and was surprised that I never ran out of ideas before the end, although I was actually completely musically dried up at the end of it. There are 36 in-game tunes and a title tune (all available at exotica), a shocking amount.

It's nice to know that people liked the game. It was one of my favourites, but never seemed to get the attention it deserved in my opinion.

If it was luck I would have not been able to reproduce it everytime I think the way the sound engine sticks the SFX samples in between the music is what made the "globduling" audiorythmic. I will try to MP3 it!

I didn't mean luck on your part, but luck in the programming. I think a lot of the music is at the same tempo, so the combination of distance between walls, scroll speed, and delay between jumps coincidentally matches with the tempo of the music each time.
