TurricanII is better on pc than on the amiga

edit: damn, just saw Bloodwych's post LOL LOL LOL

edit2: I had a 386sx around 1991, I remember that First Samurai , Gods, Jim Power, Xenon all had worst scrolling , but some looked better because of more colors...

But it was released a lot later so it doesn't count

It's the same with Last Ninja 1 for PC and Last Ninja Remix for Amiga.. the Amiga version was released later on so I won't include that one.

Cool. I'll need some games that look good on the PC as well to show that I'm not completely biased (though I am! ).
I guess the sound is a lot worse in those games anyway.

Thanks for the suggestions so far!

But I still need more I guess 10 more games or so will be enough.

The only version to play is the Arcade version via MAME32 IMHO

Guess I say this as I grew up playing the Arcade version, it's still one of my favourite Arcade games of all time

Arcade:


I was sorely disappointed when the Amiga version came out, it could / should have been sooooo much more. In my opinion even the Sega Master System looks and plays better:

Sega Master System:


Anyway, enough Off Topic from me. Sorry laffer...

That PC screen doesn't look too bad, but wasn't the Amiga full screen?

Uups, it's better on pc than on amiga. BTW those EGA Sierra games rock on pc. MT-32 music's are simply amazing.

Of course, an MT-32 was VERY expensive back then, more expensive than a brand new Amiga if I'm not mistaken.

Yes, MT-32 was very expensive, but even some Atari ST games support it.

Don't get me wrong, I love the MT-32, I own one actually. I got mine on eBay though, a LOT cheaper than back then
Sounds really nice.

But back on topic - I still need more suggestions - and stop suggesting the few games that are better on the PC! Saboteurs!

OT: don't forget MT32's bigger sister: the all mighty LAPC-I (same as MT-32 but with some extra SFX built-in)

I just thought of a game I need to include - Desert Strike! The cannons in the PC version sound like an elephant with diahrrea.

Well, this is your idea to create something and you have right to do it your way. Still, I think that you need to be objective or at least, in the future, create something the other way round: which Amiga ports were horrible in comparison to PC versions.
