Big grin After Awesome Platformers

So far have found, Robocod, Rodland, Giana Sisters, Ruff n Tumble, Rainbow Islands, Superfrog oh and Arkanoid and am running out of ideas!

Also does anyone know if you can get to the secret Islands on Rainbow Island on Winuae versions?

I'm new to all this stuff

Thanks!!!

I'd recommend Parasol Stars, Qwak, Global Gladiators, Soccer Kid, Arabian Nights, Donk, Naughty Ones... possibly quite a few others I've forgotten, too

Maybe even

Aladdin http://hol.abime.net/3225
or
Lion King http://hol.abime.net/893 if you are a Disney lover.

Brian the Lion http://hol.abime.net/208 perhaps.

Thanks Guys

@Musashi - Gotta love NZ Story (OK so maybe I'm biased )
Tried Bubble Bobble but skipped to Bow Islands

@Graham - Ooh Qwak looks nice as does Arabian, Naughty Ones and Donk

Will pass on Brian the lion, just broke up with a Bryan and don't feel like seeing the name all the time

@ John
I couldn't figure out how to get the keys in James Pond 3: Operation Starfish

And how to detinate the bombs etc in Rick Dangerous using Winuae - yeah really new to all this

Thank guys

Just search http://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php?N_ref_category=16 will show you all the 650 platformers on HOL

You may also try http://www.back2roots.org/Games/ADF-Games/ (Floppy) http://www.back2roots.org/Games/HD-Games/ (Hard Drive) for any games, unfortunately you cant select a platform category just look at the screenshots 'n' select what you like. Some you will recognise 'n' some you wont, but the screenshots will give you an idea of what you're getting

Happy hunting

I've just checked the screenshots of Strider II. It's kinda funny, but interesting what's happening with the chick between the last 3rd and 2nd pics, as on the first she's quite "ready for action, but on the second she felt into unconsciousness...
