Blood Money on C64 have worse graphics (and different music) than on Amiga,but it's still good game. Same with Strider.

BC Kid is an awesome PC Engine port. Pretty cool Amiga platformer.

@Amiga Strider

It's a bad port. Compare it with the PSX, Sharp X68000 or Mega Drive versions.

This is indeed only a rumor. They planned a SuperGrafx version, but it was never released. Only an ordinary PC Engine CD port exists.

IMHO on amiga 2 best platformers are Superfrog and Lionheart. There are many other ones, but those 2 are the best.

Hi there nzgirl, welcome to the forum!

I'll list some platform games that I love to play heaps. There are so many awesome Amiga games that it's hard to choose the best ones.

Whizz - an isometric platformer that's really fun to play once you've got the hang of the controls)
Nicky Boom 1 & 2 - I love the puzzles in this game
Jimmy's Fantastic Journey - cool hidden bonuses but time limit means you have to be quick
Kid Chaos - smooth, awesome platformer
Globdule - it's a blob that you control around the screen, collecting food to finish the level

For me New Zealand Story, Bubble Bobble, Rainbow Islands


For my 5 year daughter: Great Giana Sisters. She's completely mad about this game. It's amazing how my 20 year old A500 copes with it's frustrations when she loses.

John4p, yeah I'm registered there too. I have some more pics in my user profile photo album thing.

I see no one mentioned Chuck Rock 2: Son of Chuck. I think it's far better than the original and definitely worth getting!

Also forgot to mention Wiz 'n' Liz, which is fantastically good fun, especially as a two-player game.
