I can only add two titles (since TCD already mentioned Wings and Lionheart):

Apidya
Shadow of the Beast III


But you have to consider there are also a lot of titles which may have been also available on C64, Spectrum, PC and Atari ST but where just leagues beneath the Amiga version, like:

It Came From The Desert,
Super Cars II,
Lotus I & II,
Turrican I & II (of course the C64-versions are technical masterpieces yet it's a totally different experience with the Amiga's graphics and Chris Hülsbeck's music),
Battle Squadron
and many, many more...

Photon: That's awesome! Yeah, I figured a thread like this, is where it's really at.

Ok, so we've got a couple of lists now, so now comes the next step for me. Finding out which ones are considered by a majority of Amiga-fans as MUST-PLAY games. Basically, pick and chose the ones that you really just gotta' have on your Amiga, from these exclusive titles.

Apidya sounds very interesting, I must say. I believe I've actually heard about that one before... {reads on Wiki}

Oho! Chris Hüelsbeck, eh? Well, then it's certainly worth a listen.

I checked Assasin SE as well, and it certainly seems like a good game. I'm a bit surprised how many of these sort of inspired-by-other games there are on the Amiga tho.

Like:

Katakis => R-type
Turrican => Metroid/Contra
Assasin => Strider
Great Giana Sisters => Super Mario Bros

Apidya is imho Hülsbeck's best work for the Amiga. The soundtrack CD is awesome.

^ What Retro said Well among the great soundtracks he made for the Amiga it's hard to choose, but Apidya is really awesome

From I.C.E.? There is a ST conversion, as it seems.

I would say my faves are Ruff N Tumble and Traps N Treasures. The top trophy must go to Apidya!

Wikipedia is wrong and states that Apidya was released for Atari ST also.

EDIT: Ok Virocop was class as well

EDITEDIT: + Superfrog haha
