Can you list some best platformers (for A500)?

Hi,

I promised to lend one of my A500's to a colleague. Apparently she wants to try out some platformers (and see what all this Amiga fuss is about).

Well, I was into CRPG and strategy genres so I kinda missed most of the other games. So, can you kind people give me some ideas what I should include in her Amiga Survival Pack?

Apart from the platformers I was thinking to include at least some Boulder Dash clone, perhaps some Break Out game.. Oh, and Pinball Dreams / Fantasies of course.

Oh yes. Now I have to work out what to leave out since I don't have 100's of disks at hand.

As for a breakout game, I always loved Megaball...

Hey, how did i miss that ! (you always think you've played everything on the Amiga when someone just tells you otherwise...)

Anyway, I didn't see anyone posting Rolling Rony, so I thought I did. I've heard some people hate this one, I loved it as a kid.

Another good one (for me atleast) would be Doodle Bug, same as above, so many hours of fun.

OK! I just handed the bag full of Amiga Power to her and told that we'll understand if she does not show at work on next monday.

The first batch included: Superfrog, Prince of persia, Ghosts'n'Goblins, Monkey island, Pinball dreams, Flashback, Arkanoid, Fire & Ice, Wb 2.04, IK+ .. There are many more games waiting in line.

I couldn't get the Lollypop to work. It always crashes after selecting play/start.
