Classic arcade games on the miggy

I thought I'd try to brainstorm all the classic arcade games that have been done on the Amiga, either faithful conversions or updated versions. These are some noteworthy efforts that I could come up with initially:

Asteroids - Blasteroids, Stardust, Super Stardust, Cabaret Asteroids (PD)
Space Invaders - Super Space Invaders
Galaxian/Galaga - Deluxe Galaga
Pac-Man - Deluxe Pac-Man, Pac-Mania
Defender - Defender II (Llamasoft), Defender (PD - Acid), Datastorm, Overkill

Any others that anyone knows of? Did anyone try to do Amiga versions of any others like Tempest, Pong, Missile Command or Battlezone?

Although...this version isn't what you would call a "faithful" conversion of Pong but it is fun all the same... (Click)

Yes, I found it on AMR. "Grass" is different on sticker than in game but maybe it's screenshot from later level.
