What are the best Amiga Public Domain/Shareware games?

What do you think are the best Amiga PD/Shareware games?
Do you maybe know any obscure PD gems?

I forgot about most of the weird/obscure PD games I used to have back in the day... what's out there?

I will start with these gems, although they are well well known
1. Llamatron
2. Spacetaxi 3
3. Achtung! Die Kurve
4. Airtaxi
5. Sneech
6. Masterblaster

I avoided PD games like the plague, except Llamatron. I suppose I might have missed out on some gems, but I'm not really kicking myself.

You do not know what you're missing out on

Just to add to other people's suggestions:

Scorched Tanks
Atom Smasher
Jet Set Willy '97
Tanx 'n' Stuff
Strikes 'n' Spares
Super Foul Egg
Tetris Pro
Fayoh 2
R3
Aerial Racers

I'm sure I'll be able to come up with more later on...

Another couple... Extreme Violence - Great little two-player versus shooter. Star Woids - Demo only, I wish this had been made into a full game!

Missed some great ones:

Knights (the BEST 2 player ACTION) - the older version with the cool intro music is better
Colonial Conquest
Biplanes

Will need a hell lot of time to download & check all of them!

... would be nice if people posting their favorites would upload'em to "DaZona" too, but I'm *not* suggesting anything...

Aminet and WHDLoad Pack by KG could be the main sources.
