I had this game. Yes I agree it was awful. Thankfully the same disk had Stunt Car Racer on so not a complete waste of a floppy.

I'll see your Vixen and raise you Dynamite Dux. Even in two player mode it was awful.

Also theres a series on youtube called Amiga Games to Avoid which is quite funny and has some of the best examples:

Strider was a god awful jerky pixelated mess of a conversion. Capcom's conversions for the most part seemed like that...

Damn, a lot of good Games mentioned over here in this thread. Loom? Last Ninja 2? Cool Spot? Giana Sisters (Amiga Version, of course)? I mean...they're DAMN-good compared to Games that really makes you wanna puke.
It's kinda fun to dig out some of this old and crappy Games. Somehow it's strange fascinating like...yeah, watching a huge road accident from the distance. You can't look away ("OMG, what has happened over here??? HO-RRI-BLE!") 8) (but of course a road accident doesn't make you laugh, like a crappy Game, don't get me wrong)

Played a lot of those accidents on the Amiga in the last years. Dick Tracy for example. For me it's totally unplayable. Outstanding (for me) that someone managed to play through this whole mess. What a Hero! [ Show youtube player ]
Disappearing (and bullet-sucking) enemies galore. Playing this feels like...beeing pushed down a Tower just so they can hear you scream.

Or "First Person Pinball". It's a MESS. The Physics just makes you laugh - you don't even have to play the Game - the Ball is alive and is just doing what it wants to do, I tell ya. [ Show youtube player ]

Another one: Microbattle. WHAT IS THIS? [ Show youtube player ] WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? And why for gods sake do they have to crush my Ears? Damn...

Oh,yeah. And let's not forget about this brilliant Boulder Dash-clone "Rocky". [ Show youtube player ] Just brilliant. Play it on an unexpanded Amiga 500 and get asleep instantly.

I'd rather play Last Ninja or Cool Spot on the Amiga for the next two weeks than only one more Hour with these "classics". ^_^

I'm with you on this one.

Ok, I'll admit I sound a bit harsh now when I'm looking back.
The rage of the moment got the best of me.

Hahaha, I can feel your love for this game. FromWithin's reply cracked me up though, you know he was responsible for the music in the Amiga version, don't you?

I do now.

Sorry FromWithin, if I would have known that at that time, I would have been a wee bit nicer.

As I said, it was in the heat of the moment, I just had to get it out of the system.

I'm with HungryHorace in regards to Blood Money. Terrible game. It was like the player was part of a scrolling demo. Was slick enough, and looked ok, but less fun than sticking a knife in a toaster. Hours of boredom so intense that a persons face is prone to melt.

While a terrible game it still cant hold a torch to Inertia Drive. A shooter so bad that friends accused me of having made it with SEUCK when I played it. Not just that, but they also told me it was one of the crappier SEUCK games I'd made.

1943 has to be up amongst it too. I knew it was bad, but hadnt played it in years (decades). This thread however got me interested enough to try it again, and wow, that really is bad.

Street Fighter 1 is pretty horrid too. Makes the often maligned SF2 seem fantastic in comparison. And HKM,.... what the hell happened there? SF1 gets terrible reviews, in mocked to high heaven so the authors decide, "ok then, SF1 didnt do well so lets make another game based around a tweaked engine". Rather than tweaking it for the better however they appear to have decided making it worse would be a good idea.

Maybe HKM was just released upon the world as some sort of punishment for the mockng SF1 received.

Me too, I wasn't impressed in the least, and it was hyped to the point it was silly. Even the graphics were hit and miss in my opinion - the player sprites looked like children's toys - and the music was kind of depressing.

Can it be worse than The Final Trip?

Metal Master, Abandoned Places, Crazy Cars... I don't know if they are the worst, probably not, but they stuck in my mind as examples of WTFery.

Dangerous Streets was shockingly awful in every way. I could never fathom what possessed Commodore to bundle it with the CD32. What a way to show off the new system!
