I second for Ruff 'n' Tumble. Brilliant, IMO the best Amiga platfom game.

Besides Ruff 'n' Tumble, there are 2 platform games not mentioned here that are just EXCELLENT, and both published by the same team:

Arabian Nights
Soccer Kid

Those 3 games will give you more than enough platform action with much variety.

Hell yes. RnT is a sublime piece of coding.

And tearaway thomas is one of the funniest games I've ever played, watching that little bastard dart about like a loony is hilarious.

I'd give New Zealand Story and Rainbow Islands a shot. They are simply awesome arcade platformers.

RUFF`n`TUMBLE was not a game published by KRISALIS like Soccer Kid or Arabian Nights. It was a Renegade game.

No, if you look again at what he said

"BESIDES Ruff 'n' Tumble, there are 2 platform games not mentioned here that are just EXCELLENT, and BOTH published by the same team:"

He means the same as each other, not the same as Ruff 'n' Tumble.

Parasol Stars is another great platformaer btw.

How so? the thing slows down like hell and I never understood why, since it loks pretty simple to the eye (not even the slightest sight of parallax in it, for example). Probably it has to do with the loads of stuff going on on-screen, but is it really that wickedly programmed?

I like it.

Therefore it's good.

And it looks superb for an ocs game. If I remember rightly it got voted best looking game in 1994. No idea who by.

Now I've just got to wait for the caps version which Fiath promised me

hmm... I don't generally like platformers, but I find Flimbos Quest and First Samurai entertaining.

slow down?? there isnt slow downs on Ruff´N´Tumble. It has multidirectional scroll with 32 colours and it runs pretty well. It has the same frame rate than BitmapBros games Gods, MagicPockets.. just your character has more inertia than Bitmaps games... thats why I guess some times seems slow.

Well, Superfrog and Assassin also are 32 colours multi directional scroll,.. but I guess their characters havent the complexity of Ruff´N´Tumble characters.

PP Hammer is pure nostalgia for me. It doesn't look very good and the idea of the game is pretty lame, but BOY do I love it!!

Bro, I htink you ran Ruff n Tumble in your A1200 or something, because in my A600 it slowed down like hell, besides the bloody sprite flickering!! So it's far from a "technical prowess" I say. Fine game, yes, but not brilliantly programmed IMO.

I don't know why, but I just remember that Flimbo's Quest was way better on the C64 than on Amiga.

Shit, the Amiga is just full of excellent platform games.

Well, hell, the Amiga is full of excellent games in just about every genre

Agreed. Two of the best IMO, and that RI music just gets into your brain and never leaves!

YEAH the C64 FLIMBO is a bit better than the AMIGA version.
The C64 version was the original version. But the conversion were also done by the original 8 bit team. I think it was Mario Van Zeist. Musics by MON ( Reyn ). One of my TOP 5 games of all times ever !!!


Another brilliant platformer is:

WoW! I bought this game back in 1991. This one was released under the AMIGA FUN label. AF was a monthly released game disk.
I had nearly bought all issues of AF because the price was hot.
19,80 DM ( 10 € ). The quality of the games was often better than a full price product.

Somebody just told me something very cool!

The Rainbow Island music is a "chipmunk" version of "Somewhere over the Rainbow" from "The Wizard of Oz" (1939, Directed by Victor Fleming not to be mistaken with dreadful other makes of the same book). Performed by Judy Garland.

To see what I mean, sing this, fast
http://www.reelclassics.com/Musicals...bow-lyrics.htm

The music is even featured in "Face/Off" as the counterpoint to a very violent scene heard through a walkman by a child.

I thought everyone knew it was from Somewhere over the rainbow?

Was it not common knowledge? I just took it for granted that people knew. :hoo
