please suggest some old console games not available on the Amiga !

I recently 'donated' myself a GP-32 handheld for ~90 Euro. Mainly wanted it for playing my beloved C64 games wherever I am, but now I have got some interest in old consoles, too

But since I never had any console:

What are the best console games which were not available for Amiga or C64 ?

I am mainly interested in Super Nintendo, Megadrive/Genesis, Sega Master System, Nintendo Entertainment System and original Gameboy games.

So far I have tried Prince of Persia II, Splatterhouse II and some others which play quite cool !

Megadrive & AtariST have many classics that are already available on Amiga so DrMD and Castaway should definately sort you out there. GPEngine is also top notch on the gp32 for PCEngine games, 3 I can recommend off the top of my head are Raiden, Galaga90 and Liquid Kids.

The 8-Bit consoles also run a treat but to be honest I don't bother with SNES as it doesnt run as great as the AtariST and Megadrive on the gp32.

Sorry I can't think of more games at the moment have fun.

Edit: GP32 Spain have a nice top100 list of each system actually

If you haven't played any console game you should definitely try the zelda, castlevania and metroid series for nes and snes and the sonic games for the sega consoles. These games are good to start with.

Snes has a lot of wonderful RPG's (as is already mentioned). I would really try out Zelda, Secret of Mana 2 and Chrono Trigger. You may also like Final Fantasy 5 & 6 (FF5 is supposed to be the best one. I guess I'm biassed for playing FF7 first )
