New Order used ST at the time, as I`m sure a lot of other groups did in preference.
Todd Rundgren used 10 Amigas for one of his tracks, I cannot be bothered looking it up, others may.

Bucktooth Bob's Jungle Adventure is one of the best Amiga games!

Actually I was involved in creating it The game is based off of my BBS nickname which was Bucktooth Bob.

I recall buying Dragon's Lair 3 but did not have a CLUE what to do! The controls were impossible but the graphics/audio were brilliant.

I ended up using the game as a 'demo'... enabling the cheat so it runs the entire way through and cycling it on my Amiga

Sure this has already been mentioned.

Great Giana Sisters, biggest pile of trype ever. The day that stopped working on PSPUAE, was a blessing in disguise, .

As mentioned before; Pitfighter was a huge downer when it came out on the Amiga.

Tecno Cop was also a travesty. Boring racing sequences, combined with stiff shoot em up. I used to show it to my mates from time to time, because of how the enemy bodies exploded. Pretty violent for its time.

Oil Imperium never did it for me either. I rather played Ports of Call.

Now I am not in any way a fan of Giana Sisters at all - but worst ever? I think if that was the Amiga's worst game it would have done very well indeed

I think it just annoys them that they suck at GGS Surely not the worst game, but have I mentioned Jungle Boy and *new* Top Banana? Now those are really awful

Rogue Trooper - what a stupid game
Major Motion and Batman were disappointing, too

EDIT: Somebody posted Loom here. I can't believe it. That's ridiculous! Is he trolling, or what?

I spent hours in front of Major Motion! That game was extremely addictive. I never tried Spy Hunter, but I really enjoyed MM.

Always thought Bill's Tomato Game is a nice puzzler, but maybe that's just me

Legends of the Lost. Awful game, I think if I'm right I actually parted with 10 for this dreadful game. Stuff of nightmares.

Someone metioned Extase and you know - I love popping that game in, playing around and listening to all the excellent audio...

But I also agree - what in the HELL are you supposed to do to get past the first level? I am so lost there... gorgeous music though.


Worst miggy game? Well, Of the ones I've tried I must say I can't get into Renegade or Turrican 3. T3 suffers from control issues in what might have otherwise been an awesome game. Renegade was... crap in arcades, crap on the Amiga.

I was hoping it would be the ZX Spectrum style of Renegade, which is awesome. Nope.
