I guess you are right, I ran it on A1200. :hoo

That means I must try this beast on my 1200! However I remember my disk version not running in it. I hope there is a WHDLoad version of it!

I have no problems running Ruff'n'Tumble on my A1200 as long as I use TUDE to go to 1.3 rom and ECS graphics.

I mostly played P.P. Hammer on the C64, thought the Amiga version though it looked better and had far less bugs (chances on the C64 were that if you got killed one place and tried the level again the enemy who killed you would not be there)

As for rainbow islands, I didn't think it was that superb a conversion. The game itself is superb but the conversion I thought just lacked something, just like I was missing something from bubble bobble.

I always liked elf, good platformer, sweet coppers.

And then there's the 8thday/core classic premiere

which kinda sucked now that I tested it again, nostalgia does strange things :/

Nobody mentioned Sword


Good game in my opinion. It was even released as late as 1998!

Funny, that almost sounds like Superfrog's tune to me!

In some respects though, how do we define some of these platform games?
After all, the simplicity of say eg:Addams Family,(Marioesque jumping), is a tad different to the strategy/timing of Flashback, & of course the classic Turrican 1 & 2 are jump & run shooters in themselves too.
