Unfortunately the only scans of Amiga Game Zone on AMR are the front covers.

Id say lemmings as well. Probably one of the few games where every Amiga owner had an original copy either bundled or baught

SWOS must be close, but probably outsold everything if you could the versions v1 through to 96/97 as one single game.

Otherwise I agree Lemmings was in the very succesful Cartoon Classics pack and many owners must have had an original copy as well through this

I didn't.. I actually feel sorry for anyone that did, the intro on the Skid Row release was an absolute classic that I'll never forget.

You can have the great Skid Row intro (what music!) and still own the original I certainly did. The Cartoon Classics version I had was one disk without the animation as well

Small thing - I now own two Cartoon Classics versions from collecting in recent years one is one a boring blue disk and one is one a cream disk! Amazing. So I have 3 copies - 2 legit and a pirate

I would say "Pinball Wizard". It came bundled with my Amiga, and that's why probably a lot of people got it

Other candidats are probably: "Dungeon Master", "Defender of the Crown" , "The Spawn" , "North and south", "Elite+", "F18 Interceptor", "Falcon", "R-Type", "Denaris", "battle squadron", "Hang On", "Lotus turbo esprit challenge", "Captive", and more

I'd also go with Lemmings, Swos, Cannon Fodder or similar.

Maybe "The Settlers". It was incredibly popular, at least here in Germany.

I am quite sure its Sensible World of Soccer. The Amiga magazines at the time were saying it was the best selling game across all formats. This was a time when all the other magazines were saying the Amiga was a dead machine so they wanted to emphasize the point.

Yes SWOS does sound like a safe assumption.
