I know people have mentioned OutRun, but what about the Amiga version of Chase HQ? That was a bit feeble. But it is slightly better than the first two Crazy Cars game I suppose.

Yeah, Chase HQ felt like you were driving through quicksand with five parachutes attached to the back of your supposedly speedy car. Perhaps among the worst attempt at simulating high speed driving ever!

The music was kind of catchy though and the gameplay was bearable. I've played worse.

Arrow I agree with you Bips

When I had played Blood Money for the first time I had been so absorbed with the various enemies and the details of the background that I was loosing continously, bumping on the walls or edges... very hard game I must admit though!

Crappiest Amiga Games EVER

Hi there guys, i was wondering if somebody could recall some of these "often famous" but ignominous Amiga games, name them and put them into the zone for "God's sake" and our personal "pleasure".

I can recall some of them.

For example.

TOP BANANA
BARRAVENTO

MORTAL KUMQUAT
BUCKTOOTH BOB

I can post the first two, and i'm looking for the other ones.
Any other ideas?

There is a thread about this already.
I dont play bad games and when something sucks at the beginning I dont play it any longer.

Yeah, Yolanda was pretty awful, I couldn't even get off the first level!

Borobodur Planet of Doom was pretty crappy.

Yolanda is shite!

Chase HQ is appalling, especially considering the SMS version is about 50x better.

Chase Hq is a game I really thought was bad on the amiga, the road was pink and green iirc, and it looked no better than the spectrum version.

Most of the movie tie in's where rubbish from memory, robocop, batman, back to the future 2 (although I quite liked that, it just wasnt that good)

I cant stand bad ice hockey games (it means almost every ice hockey game on Amiga), both FaceOffs arent good, Karamalz is utter crap (but its not commercial I think) and Daley Thompsons Olympic Challenge, its shite of epic proportion and in comparison with speccy D.T.Decathlon or Track and Field on MAME its the one the worst game ever. I really hate it, Daley is one of the best athlete in history and this ... I dont wanna be banned. It makes me wanna puke, Ocean
