If the intention of the thread is meaning games designed originally on the C64 then later converted/updated to the Amiga, then there's been a few obviously. However amongst the better ones were Turrican's 1 & 2, Andy Braybrook also did Uridium 2 on the Amiga (prequel C64 obv.), & Sensible did Wizkid (sequel to C64 Wizball).

It was actually enhanced for the Amiga, for example it used all of Amiga's colors + copper shades. The OOPS code was the same but the OOPS was written for each machine. The scroll routine was obviously NOT Atari code.

I think most of Graftgold's later releases were ported to the Amiga.

Exile, if no one has mentioned it yet.

Oh i see.It sure doesn't look in any way enhanced and that scroll routine seems to be the same as the ST.Mind you i'm going from memory here so best i have another look just to satisfy my curiosity on this.

If you count official releases, then this topic could go on forever. But what games got an amigaport later, by amateur coders? Bruce Lee is an example of one of those, anything else?

But, IMHO (to be a little OT) the best version of this game was the C64 one, way better than the Amiga! Still play it on my breadbox, rather than my a500!
Deffo - the Amiga version was just the same as the ST with crappy framerate. C64 all the way for Wizball
