I simply loved R.I.S.K. from The Edge and also liked Motos from Mastertronic. And not to mention great The Master of magic (all C64), which I really can imagine remade for Amiga...

There is an Amiga port of Ballblazer - and it's pretty damn good.
Masterblazer: http://hol.abime.net/2420 (screenshot is from the optional "race" part, not main game)

In the intro, there's even a fractal mountain flyby that looks like Rescue on Fractalus - which is what made me start this thread in the first place.

Gradius, Joust, Robotron, and lots of other arcade games that I can't remember at the moment.
For Choplifter, check out
Apocalypse: http://hol.abime.net/3282

For Robotron, check out
Llamatron: http://hol.abime.net/4970

(I did also say, "games that have never been converted/cloned/copied in any form". Yeah, llamas aren't robots... but close enough.)

I've got this:


SD card reader for Atari 8-bit. It's awesome. I copy disk images from Amiga to Atari. Game loading is fast (well, compared to floppy loading). I've even typed stuff on an Atari wordprocessor, saved it on SD, loaded it on Amiga, then sent it on the internet. (Why? - because I can, damn it!)

Also - would've loved to see an updated version of Drol - another 8-bit favorite of mine.
You know there's an Amiga PD version of Drol? http://hol.abime.net/436

SabreWulf and Underwurlde.

Work on both titles was actually underway on both games (the idea was that the coders would license the titles from Ultimate), and screenshots even appeared in Amiga mags.

Sadly neither saw the light of day.

Interesting. Though I looked at a longplay of it on youtube, and it looks like they've lifted the graphics almost directly from the C64 without any improvements to take advantage of the Amiga, which is a bit disappointing.

Though I also found a video of a PC remake that, while the graphics looked polished just didn't seem to have the atmosphere of the original, so maybe it's for the best that they left it as is.

Second round from me, after loooong!!

Well, the mighty "Heavy on the Magick" from ZX Spectrum, "Tau Ceti" from CPC and "Driller" from C64 could be awesome on miggy...

Man, after 22 years of happy Amiga-fiddling, here's something I didn't expect to see!!! Thanks!
In fact I never searched for this one on miggy, but I was somehow sure that it hadn't been released for 68k..
Gonna try it on my real stuff at once!!
