1. Alien Breed 3D (without floors and ceilings)
2. Fears (in small window, without floors and ceilings)

thank you, but maybe there are something more, not only FPS games?

DoomAttack using the CD32 C2P plugin.

I'm not sure if anyone has got DoomAttack to work in 2MB of RAM yet, but it certainly runs well with 8MB Fast RAM on a CD32 using the Akiko C2P, noticably smoother than my A1200 with 8MB Fast RAM.

Legends of Valour, even runs on my A600.
Not a CD32 game but whateverrr, neither are a couple of the ones mentioned above ;D
And it's an RPG.

Frontier isn't textured though!

And Trick or Treat and Pac-Man 3D aren't CD32 games.

Really? It looks like a texture. How were the details added then?

It just uses smaller polygons on top of larger polygons to give a bit of detail. You could do the same thing yourself with 3D Construction Kit.

Interesting, more polygons = faster performance than a texture?

No
Different

There;'s stuff needed for textures that's pretty slow or impossible on an Amiga (namely the famous chunky to planar conversion)



Another game with textures: Mr. Nutz. One of the special levels is a textured tunnel, which I always thought was pretty impressive:

This is correct. Its cheaper (computationally) to just put a few more polygons on an object as text instead of a large textured image which is very expensive and a lot of hard work for the poor old A500.

No, it is different.
Depends on the hardware.
For a Playstation, it's easier to push textured polygons than doing 2D the way the Amiga does.
Also this thread is about the CD32, which has a special chip for C2P conversion.

That still doesn't change the fact that the PS1 does texture mapping via hardware and not software.

Wing Commander uses sprite scaling, not polygons i'm afraid.

Super stardust tunnels, were they 3D? I know they impressed me!

Umm, some 2 player split screen freeware game with 2 wizards with machine guns, they could cast spells at each other too (reverse controls etc). God know's what it was called, but it was loads of fun!

Those were just pre-calculated pictures.
