Girly games

Any suggestions for good Amiga games that can be enjoyed by a non-dyke 6yo?, I mean, something with pink gradients, pretty bullshit and stuff

Have you tried puzzlers? They all seem to work for girls. Also cute platformers like Wonder Dog.

My sister used to go ga-ga with lemmings too.

My girlfriend is not 6 any more, but she goes crazy whenever I play Superfrog ("cuuuuuute!"). Seems to me that girls need something where even the walls have big, round eyes...

How about "puzzle bubble" aka "bust-a-move"? Or "Pang!"

I've noticed she's more of a platformer gamer, but I'm still open to suggestions

Try MegaBall 3 or 4 (a breakout clone). The wife of an acquaintance played it a lot. And my girlfriend occasionally tries to top my years old highscores in it :P. Megaball 3 was shareware, 4 was commercial, but nowadays you can download it for free.
You can download the game from Al Mackey's (the guy who did the gfx/music for the game) website: http://www.almackey.com/megaball.html

NEBULUS ??? No way man. Sure it is cute. But I think it is to hard.

Try Superfrog or Rodland. She will love it.

Did you try Trolls and Wiz'n'Liz?

Could also try some of the 'frogger' style games. You know the ones where you have to guide the little animal across the road and stop it from being splatted by the evil car thingies? Those are awesome.

Puzzle Bobble could work, at least it did with my wife. The two player game is great, even my parents like it. I think it has never been portet to the Amiga, but are there any similar Amiga games?

Fury of the Furries, Ugh, Chuck Rock 1 & 2, Joe & Mac, B.C. Kid, Baby Joe, lost vikings, prehistorik, Brian the Lion, out to lunch, silly putty

To name a few platformers. Now as for puzzle games:

Chip's Challenge, Clockwiser (that opening animation is so cute it sickens me), Brat, Super Skweek, Tiny Skweeks, the Power (also to cute for comfort), Antago

and you should definitely try out Wizzy's Quest, I know a couple of girls who are completely crazy about that game. This game is not in the HOL (probably PD), but I've seen it on a few emu websites.

That should get you going
