Worst - AV8B Harrier Assault. My mate bought me this when my A1200 was new and we spent many joyless hours trying to tweak some fun out of it.

Damn tricky question. After a while I ended up with a "that'll do" type list, which goes a little like:

1. Robocod
2. Ruff 'n Tumble
3. Lotus2
4. AlienBreed3d
5. Z-out
6. R-Type
7. Alienbreed3d 2:TKG
8. Addam's Family
9. Babeanoid
10. Sinbad And The Throne Of The Falcon

I really wanted to add Curse Of Monkey Island too as Ive only ever played it on Amiga.

Worst:

Cant decide between Inertia Drive and Street Fighter 1. HKM deserves an honorable mention too.

The Tiertex successor to their Street Fighter 1 port. So in a way Human Killing Machine = Street Fighter 2.

Well, I still think the Amiga version of SF2 is terrible, but you're right it's definitely better than SF1 and HKM.

Thanks Geraldine for fixing your vote. And thanks to everybody for their votes so far - that's 48 in total now. Still got two weeks left to vote so plenty of time for more to flood in. So far, there's not too many surprises towards the top end but there's plenty of games that I would expect to earn a respectable number of votes that haven't even broke into the 100 yet.

Worst vote won't count unless you can select one

Even though Inertia Drive absolutely deserves recognition for the talent required to make a game that bad I'll have to go StreetFighter 1 for worst game.

Tiertex were truly something "special", and StreetFIghter1 was probably them at the height of their powers.

1. Dune
2. Slam Tilt
3. D/Generation
4. UFO: Enemy Unknown
5. Oil Imperium
6. Cannon Fodder
7. Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's revenge
8. Xenon 2 Megablast
9. Stunt Car Racer
10. Another world

And worst game? Hmmmm. I'd have to say Shuttle, for it's sheer "could have been awesome"-ness, but it was so slow, and it would not work on anything faster than a 68000, which made it virtually unplayable.
